Lavazza retains French Open in grand slam set

Italian coffee company Lavazza has renewed its sponsorship of the French Open grand slam tennis tournament.

The new deal will run until at least 2019 after an extension was signed this week during the 2018 French Open at Roland Garros.

Lavazza began sponsoring the tournament in 2015 and it also holds partnerships with the three other tennis grand slams – the Australian Open, Wimbledon and US Open. France represents Lavazza’s second biggest market after Italy. 

This year’s French Open concludes on June 10.
