Serving Another Winner - Canon sponsors the China Open with high technology

The 2007 China Open, to be held in Beijing from Sept. 8 to Sept. 23, will be a grander and more spectacular event than before, according to the tournament organizing committee. Already one of the most attractive non-Grand Slam events on the world tennis calendar, this year's China Open will draw on new technology, participation by some of the world's leading players and more than a touch of Beijing glamour to establish itself as one of the world's leading tennis tournaments.

Beauty Matchmaking: "China Open cheering squad Show" collaborates with "Miss World"

The Kappa Tennis Cheering Squad Show, a cheerleader campaign for the China Open, has already started, and would-be cheerleaders have been signing up with great enthusiasm. As part of a collaboration between the 57th Miss World competition and the China Open, the top three from the Cheerleading Show will be entered into the final Beijing round of the Miss World campaign.

In order to select the best cheering squad, put greater emphasis on their artistic skills and voluntary service, and also help realize the dreams of girls wanting to showcase their glamour at the China Open, the 2007 China Open Share Tennis event will select the cheering squad. "Fashionable, healthy and pretty" will be the common standard when selecting the best for both the Kappa Tennis Cheering Squad Show and Miss World. The two events will therefore be working closely together in the interests of "beauty matchmaking."

Theme Song Contest of China Open

The curtain for the 2007 China Open theme song contest will soon fall. Arranged by the China Open organizing committee and run by Beijing's Zhu Shu Group, this contest has lasted almost three months. The objective is to find the theme song for the China Open. The contest received over 1,300 songs in total from China and abroad, and more than a million people participated. It caught the attention of over 100 print media, radio channels and internet media, making it one of the hottest musical events of the first half of 2007. By the end of the fifth round of online polling, a total of 342 compositions were lined up in front of the professional judges, including 91 amateur songs, 209 amateur demos and 42 professional demos.

After lengthy deliberations by the seven professional judges -- deliberations that took professionalism, entertainment value, catchiness and production values into consideration -- both the amateur and the professional judges short-listed their respective top tens from the 342 songs.

Clearly, sport and music will combine harmoniously at this year's tournament. We strongly believe that enthusiasm, passion and style will represent the spirit of the 2007 China Open.
