The US OPEN Series will have a new title sponsor Emirates Airlines

The US OPEN Series that headlines a summer of tennis with the finale being the US OPEN has a new title sponsor.  Olympus was the partner sponsor since 2003 but a lawsuit settlement ended the term last year.  The new sponsor is the Emirates Airline.  The Airline will be title sponsor and the official airline.  It is interesting that Emirates is owned entirely by the Dubai Government.  Although I understand that Olympus was not necessarily a US company, the idea of a company owned by another goverment being the main sponsor for a large US event seems a bit odd...
