That was my initial thought as well. But culturally, Olympus is integrated into the USA mainstream.

Re: New Sponsor of USO Series = Emirates Airlines

Olympus is currently involved in a massive accounting scandal in Japan. Probably a good idea that they got rid of them.

It sounded better.

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Re: New Sponsor of USO Series = Emirates Airlines

Wouldn't it be kind of odd to have Emirates Airline sponsorship in cities they don't serve?
For example, I don't think Emirates Airline fly to Cincinnati?

Maria Kirilenko Petra Kvitová Stefanie Vögele
Arvidsson A. Bondarenko Chakvetadze Cirstea Görges Hlaváčková
Kerber Krajicek Larričre Lisicki Pivovarova Rus Šafářová

they are interested in almost everything. Tennis only stands out because some players has bigger exposure than athletes from other sports.
