Prague [Czech Republic], May 26 (ANI/PRNewswire): The two-time Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova has become a new face of a Flashscore global online and TV campaign that will run in dozens of markets worldwide and will be launched during Roland Garros, where Kvitova will also be on the court. One of the most successful tennis players of the last decade takes the Flashscore ambassador baton from Chelsea goalkeeping legend Petr Cech, who had represented the brand since 2019.
"I have been following sports since I was a little girl, so I know that cricket is the most popular sport in India. But among Indian Flashscore users, tennis is the most popular, which makes me very happy. It's great that the success of Leander Paes or Sania Mirza has aroused interest in my favourite sport in such a big country," says the former world #2 Petra Kvitova.
"Flashscore is the only app with live scores in the world where you can follow live scores from more than 35 sports in one place." said Jan Hortik, CMO of the Czech-based technology company Livesport, which is behind the Flashscore network, and continues: "In Flashscore, the most popular cricket match among Indian fans last year was the ODI series in which the Indian cricket team beat England. In general, Indian fans are most interested in cricket, tennis, and basketball. We believe that Flashscore can raise interest in other sports among them."
