Mahesh Bhupathi to be the new face of Apollo Tyres

Apollo Tyres Ltd has signed up the doubles team of India’s Mahesh Bhupathi and Radek Stepanek of the Czech Republic for the ATP and Gland Slam Tours of 2007. This comes exactly a year after Apollo Tyres decided to support the training expenses of Yuki Bhambri, who held the No. 1 position for both Asia and India under-14 in 2006.

Speaking about the initiative, Neeraj R S Kanwar, Joint MD and COO, Apollo Tyres, said, “Mahesh is a perfect fit for us given our desire to promote tennis and develop young talent. Through this association, we hope to create a strong, youthful and energetic Brand India in the international circuit.”

Bhupathi said, “Radek and I are looking forward to a challenging 2007 and our association with Apollo Tyres creates that perfect opportunity to become an unstoppable team.”

Bhupathi has been achieving tennis milestones over the years that include the record for the maximum Grand Slam titles won by an Indian – four doubles and six mixed doubles. He has partnered with some of the best players like Martina Hingis and Mary Pierce for mixed doubles and Leander Paes and Mario Ancic for men’s doubles. Moreover, he has helped the development of the game off the field too.

Bhupathi and Stepanek have decided to play the circuit after promising results both times they played together in 2006. The duo reached the semi-finals at Monte Carlo in 2006, beating top teams like Paes-Damm and Federer-Allegro along the way.
