Australians are being invited to show their support for tennis sensation Nick Kyrgios as he continues his rise up the world rankings and win phenomenal prizes including a business class trip for two to the Wimbledon Men’s Grand Final and 20 economy class tickets to Malaysia following the launch of Malaysia Airlines’ #NKRising Competition which pays tribute to the teen’s prodigious talent.
The rising star may have bowed out to Andy Murray at the Australian Open but at the tender age of 19 he has so much to be proud of. The youngest player in the world’s top 90, Nick has become the first teenager to reach two major grand slam quarter finals since Federer in 2001 and needs every Australian’s unrelenting support on his journey to the top.
Inspired by his accomplishments, Malaysia Airlines is offering fans the opportunity to fly high like Nick, with competition prizes including an AU$35,194*** trip to the Wimbledon Men’s Grand Final in July flying business class to London and staying in luxury at the Hilton London Green Park which will be awarded to the overall winner in June.
In addition, 20 return economy class tickets to Malaysia will be up for grabs to mark Nick’s 20th birthday in April, of which five will be given away each month.
Exclusive Nick Kyrgios signed tennis gear including four signed Yonex tennis bags and 40 signed Nike caps will also be awarded to entrants throughout the four-month contest.
To enter the competition, customers must purchase a Malaysia Airlines’ ticket between 1 February and 31 May 2015, post a message of support for Nick at http://www.malaysiaairlines.com/au/en/campaign/nick_kyrgios_wimbledon.html and like Malaysia Airlines’ competition post on Facebook. The entries will be judged on the most inspiring answer.
Regional Senior Vice President of Malaysia Airlines, Mr PK Lee, said Malaysia Airlines is serving up the grand slam giveaway in honour of Nick’s star-making achievements at such a young age.
“Nick’s stunning performance at the Australian Open has shown yet again that he is one of the country’s most promising talents. The sky’s the limit for Nick but belief wins big so please join us in urging him on as he takes his game to another level in 2015,” said Mr Lee.
