Petra Kvitova's role as the brand ambassador for Audi Czech Republic was announced through social media posts by official handles. The 31-year-old is set to feature prominently in the brand's media campaigns and will be the face of its latest entrant into the Czech market — the Q5.
Alessandro Pasquale, CEO of the Karlovy Vary Mineral Water Company (Mattoni's parent company), also discussed Petra Kvitova's role in future campaigns. Without giving away too much, he hinted that the star player will "become one of the faces of our brand".

Tunisian star Ons Jabeur also announced her new sponsorship deal with Qatar Airways. The 26-year-old, who had a breakout season in 2020, is hugely popular in the Arab world and that seems to be translating into her brand value as well.
French Open champion Iga Swiatek also extended her contract with Japan-based sporting brand ASICS.
The Pole was rewarded with an upgraded deal and endorsement from Rene Zandbergen, a senior brand manager at the company, who touted her as the next big thing in tennis.
