New Zealand Festival of Tennis onlookers witnessed impressive tennis sportsmanship on Saturday 11 January as John Isner bet Yen-Hsun Lu 7-6 (4), 7-6 (7) and fired 23 aces in the match, winning this year’s Heineken Open. Moët & Chandon the official champagne sponsor of the New Zealand Festival of Tennis awarded Isner’s victory with a personalised Moët & Chandon jeroboam, created exclusively to honour exceptional sporting achievement.

Isner, ranked No. 14, won his eighth career singles title and took the title in New Zealand for the second time after his victory in 2010. “This match was very tight, as every match I've played this week was very tight”, says Isner.

Moët & Chandon, which has been the champagne of success and glamour since 1743 is a global sponsor of the ATP World Tour and proud to support the New Zealand Festival of Tennis.

“What a fantastic win for John. We are honored to be the official champagne partner of the New Zealand Festival of Tennis. Showcasing success is one of Moët & Chandon’s original values and what we saw on court today was a stunning display of talent and victory by John ”, says Rai Banbury senior brand manager Moët & Chandon.

Following on from the New Zealand Festival of Tennis Moët & Chandon will watch their new global brand ambassador Rodger Federer, 17-time grand slam winner, record holder of 302 weeks at No.1 as well as an impressive five times as year-end No.1, play at the Australian Open from January 13 – 26.
