Question: Players with no clothing sponsor

If a player has no clothing sponsor (ie. NIKE) are they allowed to wear clothes with sporting logos (ie. NIKE) or do they have to wear clothes with no logo? And does this apply to shoes too??

And, did anyone see the Haas match at Aus Open when he was forced to change his shirt or cap because of something to do with the logo? Do you know what that was about?

AND, (last question) why did Justine wear a US Open cap during the USOpen and not a le Coq Sportif cap?

Thank you

and where they produce desolation, they call it peace

A player can wear any clothes he/she wants to wear at a tournament. In fact, Kafelnakov has never had a paying clothing sponsor but he almost always wears Nike. Nike has never paid him a penny, as far as I know.

On the other hand, Pete Sampras was dumped by Nike this year but Pete still wore Nike at the Aussie Open and the Davis Cup. However he covered the Nike swoosh with a small American flag. I don't know if he has a new sponsor yet.

I don't know anything about what happen with Haas.

Re: Justine . . . maybe she needed a hat because of the sun and she didn't have a hat from her sponsor. A lot of players wear the U.S. Open hat if they don't have one of their own.

Players without clothing sponsors are required to go nude.

Actually, for quite awhile, addidas used to supply shoes and clothing for those players in the top 50 or 100, without clothing contracts! I have no idea if that is still the case.

That makes sense. Adidas gets free advertisement and the players get free clothes.

I think if an unknown player gets to the semis or finals of a big tournament then some clothing sponsors will give that player a little money and free clothes to wear in the semis and/or finals. The paid sponsorship rarely goes any further than than unless that player starts winning a lot.

But mostly, clothing people try to spot good players when they are very young. Reebok got Andy Roddick when he was 12 years old and I think they got Venus when she was about that age. Rumor has it that Nike has signed a 13 year old boy and paid him a lot of money. They're hoping that pays off better than their contract with Alex Stevenson.

Justine needs a sponsor. I think she is wearing the same clothes since I know her.
That's a little bit shit.

I think Jeff Tarango hasn't any sponsor, so he's wearing just white clothes.

Only a few players actually have sponsorship if you take into account that over 4000 players try and play on the WTA/ITF events each year.

Ones that don't have to buy their own clothes.


Actually Pete at AUS didnt wear Nike, he had his own label with the US flag.

Yevgeny does have a contract with Nike now, but he didn;t bother with one for a while.

Good luck to my favs

I just know that Tommy wants many money for a new contract last year. Nike don't make a new and what's now, I really don't know.

Tommy Haas' logo on his cap was a little too big

you can only have certain sized logos/advertising on your clothes.


how they found out without getting a ruler is beyond me......i can just see it at change of ends, the referee coming out with his ruler

Good luck to my favs

how do they get there?!?! That's amazing I could barely see it.

Is that so one sports brand doesn't have an advantage over another cos viewers can see it more easily??

You see?! You DO know everything ...

Not really ...... I have everything in the Official Sanex WTA Rule Book for players/coaches

I'm sure ATP has similar guidelines.

Good luck to my favs
