The former Swiss tennis professional and Davis Cup winner Marco Chiudinelli has been a partner of Syntax Translations for over 14 years. In addition to sponsoring, the partnership has been marked by friendship and has continued after he stepped back from his tennis career.
MC (as he is known in sport circles) – once a prominent figure in Swiss tennis – not only amazed with extraordinary performances on the tennis court. Thwarted by serious injuries and set back time and again in the most important years of his sporting career, he never gave up. He always fought his way back with tireless commitment and a positive attitude.
In 2009, when he finally succeeded in advancing into the Top 100 of the ATP world rankings, and in February 2010, when he achieved his best position in the rankings at 52, it was the long-deserved reward for all his efforts and his belief to “Never give up!”. This happened in the same year as Syntax’s 25th anniversary – symbolic for the unique partnership! The 2009 “Comeback Player of the Year” award from the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) was presented to him by none other than his childhood friend, Roger Federer, and was a well-deserved recognition.
Victory for the Swiss in the 2014 Davis Cup (N.B. in the year of Syntax’s 30th anniversary) allowed him to celebrate the world championship team title with the whole country. A truly historic triumph and a unique highlight in his career!
Marco Chiudinelli has now embarked on a new career, setting up his company “mc – CHIUDINELLI, Management & Consulting”. In addition to/after various further education and training projects, his new field of activity will include consulting, designing and realising a range of services associated with sport. As a self-employed entrepreneur throughout his tennis career, he will be able to draw on his extensive experience and expertise gained during this time. Without any management, he was always solely responsible for all his activities as a top athlete. He will now be able to profitably apply his many talents and trilingual language skills to his different mandates and tasks.
Syntax Translations Ltd is very proud to count Marco as its top company ambassador. This outstanding example of mutual support will continue to shape the future.
