PLDT HOME Fibr is set to bring Serena Williams in the Philippines.
Williams is one of the formidable Tennis superstars in the world with major wins in Grand Slam — the Australian Open, the French Open, Wimbledon and the US Open. Known as Momma Smash, her victories since the early 2000’s have made her among the Grand Slam tennis superstars with 34 Grand slam titles. She has been nicknamed Serena Slam because of subsequent victories and impressive performance in various tennis surfaces.
Serena Williams is Women’s Tennis Association (WTO) pro and is ranked at no.1 for six occasions. She’s currently the reigning no.1 for women tennis pro and has been considered a legend.
Williams is headlining this year’s crop of tennis superstars for the newly-branded Philippine Mavericks team.
Accompanying Williams on the Philippine squad are Mixed Doubles Grand Slam titleholder Richard Gasquet, Wimbledon Championships WTA titleholder Lisicki, 2013 Australian Open Mixed Doubles titleholder Jarmila Gajdosova, the youngest Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) top 100 Borna Coric, ATP World Tour Doubles titleholder and Pinoy pride Treat Huey, and World No. 8 in men’s singles and Mavericks Team captain Mark Philippoussis.
Commencing on December 2 in Kobe, Japan, the IPTL’s three-day Manila-leg will be played from December 6-8 at the Mall of Asia Arena as part of a five-nation tour. Scheduled stops at New Delhi, Dubai, and Singapore will follow.
The IPTL format will be similar to 2014, where world-class tennis pros will be grouped to represent teams from India, the United Arab Emirates, Singapore and Japan as an added fifth team in 2015.
“With its expanded lineup, season two of IPTL is definitely going to be bigger and more extraordinary,” PLDT VP and HOME Marketing Director Gary Dujali said. “The competition features more than 30 international tennis superstars, and with legend Serena Williams serving up our very own Philippine Mavericks, PLDT HOME Fibr is very excited to bring this level of premier entertainment to our Filipino sports fans.”
all PLDT HOME Fibr subscribers are entitled to a 20 percent discount for their tickets to the IPTL Philippine leg. If you’re in Manila, you should see this tennis legend. For provincial areas especially in Cebu, you may have to fly to Luzon to check her out.
Subscribers can also get a chance to win VIP tickets complete with a red carpet treatment—two-way rides via the luxury car service Uber Black so that they can arrive at MOA Arena and go home in style.
PLDT HOME Fibr delivers powerful Internet of up to 1 Gbps, allowing high-speed browsing of multiple websites and the country’s first symmetrical speed service. Recently, it launched the new PLDT HOME Fibr Plan 2899 which offers 50 Mbps. Customers who apply before January 31, 2016 will have their speed boosted to 100 Mbps for the first six months of their subscription.
