"I am absolutely honored to be a part of the Mercedes-Benz global
family," Stephens said. "Mercedes-Benz is constantly raising the bar in
the automotive industry, which is similar to how I approach tennis. We
both want to perform at the highest level and be the best in the world."

"Sloane Stephens is the perfect athlete to represent the Mercedes-Benz
brand globally," said Monique Harrison, Department Head of Brand
Experience Marketing at Mercedes- Benz USA. "She has emerged as a
powerhouse in the world of tennis, and has her sights set on being the
best. We are excited to see her strive for greatness and help grow the
game. At such a young age, she has already proven to be a star, making
her an ideal fit for our brand."

At only 25 years old, Stephens is currently ranked No. 3 in the world by
the Women's Tennis Association. In 2017, she won her first Grand Slam
title at the U.S. Open, where she became the fifth unseeded woman
(ranked No. 83) in the Open Era to win a major. As a global ambassador
for Mercedes-Benz, Stephens joins other elite athletes such as Roger
Federer, Lewis Hamilton and Rickie Fowler.

As a part of the partnership, Stephens will receive a 2018 Mercedes-Benz
GLE 63 S Coupe. This vehicle combines high-performance biturbo engines
with a striking coupe design, all with the everyday practicality of a
SUV. Also as a part of the partnership, Mercedes-Benz will work with
Stephens to capture and promote content as well as engage in employee
relations activities.

Mercedes-Benz is proud to be the official vehicle sponsor of the U.S.
Open in 2018.
