Smashnova to join Kim on Athens Sideline over Sponsor Dispute

Smashnova faces Games blow

Smashnova is Israel's number one player

Israel's Anna Smashnova-Pistolesi could miss playing at the Athens Olympics because of a sponsorship row.

The world number 17's clothing sponsors Lotto will not allow her to wear the official team kit during matches.

"Unfortunately, there's a real chance that Anna will not be able to play in Athens," Israel Olympic Committee chairman Zvi Varshaviak said.

"She knows she must appear with our sponsor (Speedo) so Lotto will have to give way on this." World number two Kim Clijsters has already decided to pull out of the Games because of a similar row. The Belgian decided to stay loyal to her clothing sponsor.

It's clothes... you think they'd work something out. I mean this is ridiculous.
