Credit Suisse to sponsor Roger Federer thru 2019

ZURICH: The Swiss bank Credit Suisse has signed a 10-year sponsorship with Roger Federer.

The bank says it will make a "significant annual contribution" to the Roger Federer Foundation.

The charity was founded by the tennis star to help disadvantaged children in Africa.

Credit Suisse declined to say how much the deal is worth or how much would go to Federer''s foundation.

The bank pulled out as a Formula One sponsor last year.
