Zenith welcomes rising tennis star Leandro Riedi as its newest friend of the brand at the Swiss Open Gstaad
During the Swiss Open Gstaad, one of the ATP Tour’s most picturesque tournaments in the heart of the Bernese alps, Zenith is taking on its role of Official Timekeeper of the tournament where top ATP players are dueling in singles and doubles matches on clay courts.
Zenith, which has been a partner of the Swiss Open Gstaad since 2016, is present courtside with a pop-up store where visitors can come and experience one-to-one presentations while viewing the latest creations from the Manufacture in a laidback setting. Among them and most suitably at the Swiss Open Gstaad is the Chronomaster Sport, an endurant sporty-chic chronograph that boasts a 1/10th of a second high-frequency chronograph, with the fractions of the second displayed on the ceramic bezel.

Throughout the Manufacture’s history, Zenith has always accompanied visionaries and dreamchasers on their journey to reach their star. This is reflected in the choice of ambassadors to represent the brand. Today, Zenith is supporting a young virtuoso at the early stages of his career who shows great promise and potential, proudly welcoming young professional tennis player Leandro Riedi as its latest and youngest Friend of the Brand. Born and raised in the Swiss town of Frauenfeld, the 19- year-old is a fast-rising star in the world of tennis. An active part of Swiss Tennis, the official governing body of the sport in Switzerland, Leandro is already making a name for himself on an international level. Currently holding the ATP rank of 700, he already has several noteworthy accomplishments under his belt, including reaching the level of finalist in the French Open Boys’, a championship title in the Australian Open Boys’ Doubles, an overall highest-ranking number of #6 among junior players and perhaps most impressively, a win against an ATP top 100 player.
