Ant Group welcomes tennis star Qinwen Zheng as brand ambassador
Today, Ant Group welcomed Qinwen Zheng, the 19-year-old rising tennis star, as its latest brand ambassador.
As part of Zheng’s role, she will work closely with Ant Group to inspire young people across rural and urban areas, motivating them to pursue their dreams. Zheng will also support the development and participation of women in sport.
“I’m excited and honored to join the Ant family as a brand ambassador,” said Zheng. “Ant Group has been making continuous efforts in supporting equal development opportunities for diverse groups, especially women and teenagers. I look forward to working with Ant to encourage more teenagers to pursue their dreams. My own dreams include winning a Grand Slam and becoming the world’s No. 1 female tennis player, and I am determined to achieve my goals.”
A young, emerging tennis star, Zheng reached the fourth round of this year’s French Open in her tournament debut, and she won her first WTA 125 title at the BBVA Open Internacional de Valencia soon afterwards. Currently ranked 41 in the world, Zheng continues to achieve breakthroughs in her career. Her perseverance, courage, and optimistic spirit on the court make her the perfect inspiration for younger generations.
“We have been leveraging our digital technologies and platform to promote equal development opportunities for women, and sport can play an inspirational role in this,” said Ray Chan, Chief Marketing Officer of Ant Group and Vice Chairman of Ant Foundation. “By partnering with talented, young athletes like Qinwen Zheng, we want to leverage their reach and popularity to encourage more young people, especially women, to challenge themselves as they pursue their dreams and achieve new breakthroughs, both in sport and in life.”
In 2021, Ant Group named Wang Shuang, a top female footballer, as a brand ambassador and together inspire teenagers playing football in rural areas to chase their dreams.
