Blog: Chris MercerVita Coco targets bounce from longest tennis match

Chris Mercer | 24 June 2010

Vita Coco is looking to benefit from an association with the longest tennis match in history, which ended at Wimbledon today (24 June) after an incredible 11 hours on court.

While many of us were fretting over football World Cup qualification, John Isner and Nicolas Mahut were busy securing their place in the tennis record books.

Isner finally grabbed victory this afternoon, winning the fifth and final set by an astonishing 70 games to 68.

It turns out soft drinks maker Vita Coco, the company that recently signed a distribution deal with Dr Pepper Snapple, has a sponsorship deal with the victorious Isner.

Vita Coco is now gearing up to take advantage of Isner's marathon match.

"We'll have a strategy session (today) about how we'll go about using his association with the match. I mean, we have to use it," company co-founder and CEO Michael Kirban told business news channel CNBC.
