The HKTA proudly announces Sony Hong Kong as the Official Imaging Partner for this year's Prudential Hong Kong Tennis Open. Apart from bringing world-class tennis to Hong Kong, the HKTA actively seeks strategic partnerships with industry leaders to leverage extant innovation to continually expand the PHKTO event.
The HKTA is also delighted to announce that this year's tournament will take place from 9-15 October 2017, when more than forty of the world's best players on the WTA Tour will compete for prize money totalling USD 250,000 at the iconic Victoria Park Tennis Stadium.
Chris Lai, Chief Executive Officer of the HKTA and Tournament Director of this year's event, remarked, "We are thrilled to have Sony on board as our tournament's Official Imaging Partner. Sony is one of the top camera manufacturers in the globe and the brand name has always been synonymous with innovation and technological excellence. We look forward to working with Sony and delivering stunning images to the world."
Mr. Tomohiro Nakashima, Division Managing Director of Sony Corporation of Hong Kong Limited, said, "The PHKTO not only allows fans the chance to witness the best professional women's tennis has to offer, but provides also a great platform for photo enthusiasts to capture some of today's finest female athletes in action."
The PHKTO is an event with an emphasis on the community, with the goals of engaging people from all levels of society while fostering a passion for sport. The tournament consistently draws the participation of today's top professional women's tennis players the likes of Grand Slam champions, as well as current and former world number ones.
In terms of civic engagement, both the HKTA and Sony Hong Kong share the common commitment of actively engaging in activities that can make a positive impact on the local communities. The PHKTO is a community-backed event and as the organizer, the HKTA aims to bring a sporting spectacle of the highest quality to the Hong Kong public.
Last year, former world No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki of Denmark defeated Kristina Mladenovic of France, 6-1, 6-7(4), 6-2, in the final, while the doubles title went to Chinese Taipei's sister duo of Chan Yung-Jan and Chan Hao-Ching.
