The creation of the Shanghai Masters Tournaments resulted from the ATP and the Chinese Tennis Association’s desire to develop the market of tennis in China. With more than 100 of the world’s top male tennis players competing in 99 matches throughout nine days, the Shanghai Rolex Masters brings world-class tennis back toShanghai, emerging as the highest profile sporting event to be held in China this year.

Supported by its excellent track record as the Official Hotel Sponsor of the Tennis Masters Tournament for more than 10 years, Hilton Shanghai provided accommodation for more than 1,000 members of the international tennis community, counting players, coaches, officials, family members, sponsors and dignitaries during the Shanghai Rolex Masters. It also supplied catering services for some 80,000 guests at the week-long tournament at the Shanghai Qi Zhong Tennis Center.

Hilton Shanghai general manager, Mr. Gerd Knaust said, “We are very proud to once again be the official hotel sponsor for this global sporting event. Being the only Masters event in Asia, the Shanghai Rolex Masters standsout as the flagship event in China and in Asia. It is an ideal occasion for us to showcase our commitment and unparalleled experience in delivering outstanding service.”

To offer an enhanced catering experience to a larger group of guests, Hilton Shanghai again invited one-star Michelin Italian Chef Luca De Berardinis from Hong Kong Conrad, as the chef for this year’s Shanghai Rolex Masters.

Backed by rich working experience with various three-star Michelin restaurants, Chef Luca has successfully endowed traditional cuisine with innovative creations and has best interpreted the idea of “good and healthy” dining philosophy by applying today’s techniques and instruments to gastronomy.

Mr. Knaust added: “At this year’s tennis stadium, guests were able to feast on excellent Italian gourmet delicacies paired with elaborately selected wines and other appropriate beverages, while indulging in the comfort and appeal of the hotel’s opulent ambience and impeccable service at the stadium.”

A recent survey taken during the tournament also showed that Hilton Shanghai served some of the best food of the ATP circuit, thanks to its organic and gluten-free ingredients, and reduced saturated fats, cholesterol, carbohydrate, calorie and trans-fat contents in its regular dining choices.
