Winning the emblematic Salad Bowl, as the trophy is known, is a desire of many tennis players and one that Argentina, for example, managed to achieve once in 2016.

The association between the company and the organization was to last 25 years and lasted just over five years. After five months of this break due to the lack of agreement with the ITF to reduce the amount of the $40 million for each edition, to further organize that prestigious competition for which it was played 123 years oldnow Cosmos decided to cut itself off the racket altogether.

According to the portal satisfactionat Kosmos, they considered that it did not make sense to continue with a division of the company that was specifically designated for this named specialty Cosmos Tennis. “We no longer pursue these sectors,” a company source told the media. “For us it was a natural step after what happened with Davis. The company is looking at other points on the business level, such as Kings or Queens. At the moment we are focused as a company on other sectors. This turn was logical and tennis is no longer compatible with what we have been doing.

Andrey RublevUkrainian Elena Svitolina or croatian Borna Couric. This decision was a projection into the future and encouraged many young tennis players or others who were just beginning to play the sport to want to join.

The former Asturian racketeer whose best position in the ATP rankings was 40th in 1998, set up the 72 Sports Group agency in mid-April and “stolen” most of the clients from Cosmos how Couric, Rublev also Svitolina.
