Default Question for the tennis experts here?

Just out of curiosity, have you ever seen a gaming company sponsor a tennis event? I see gambling companies all over the boards when I watch soccer, snooker or darts. But I have yet to see a sportsbook or casino sponsor a tennis event.

Default RE:Question for the tennis experts here?

I remember there was one event last year (can't remember which one) that was sponsored by a betting company. I have a feeling that the ATP won't allow betting companies to advertise because they are trying to protect the sport from corruption. There are already cheats like Volandri, Labadze and Sargsian to name a few who pull the pin to make a bit of extra cash on the side. We don't need more players to become accustomed to it.

Can you recall what part of the year that event took place in? I checked some official docs and it seems that only tobacco and firearms products are listed as banned from advertisements.

The tournament was Kitzbuhel in Austria and was sponsored by betandwin.com

The ATP does not permit any gambling associated advertising, however I think in this instance there would have been no tournament backing without it.
