Is Reebok Still Paying Venus????

Does anyone know if Venus has renewed her contract with Reebok as yet.

Apparently Venus is still wearing Reebok, but Reebok is nolonger paying her to do so.

I'm pretty sure that she doesn't have a contract with them right now... The clothes she is using now were supposed to be for the 03 USO but she didn't play cos of her stomach injury.

I belive this answers your question:

"I dream of people watching me holding up my third Wimbledon trophy... Most of all I dream of being a good person to all that are inspired by me I dream of having girls, women, boys, men being fond of not only what I have done on the tennis court, or on the big screen or what I design but I dream of what people think of me as a person.
I dream that people think of me as a giving person as a person that
loves life and is fun to be around." - Serena

A wide stripe across the hips. Not the thing most women can wear without making there rear ends look as broad as a barn door.

I assumed Venus wasn't wearing Reebok clothing if she didnt' renew her contract with them. There wouldn't be any reason to give Reebok that publicity.

I guess Andy resigned with Reebok too.

She is getting paid, but it could be that she does not have a long term contract, she gets paid yearly or so.

She is too valuable to let go. Besides if she did not get paid, Nike and Puma would have snared a long time ago!

Venus wore reebok for nada for all of 2000. She only resigned with them after her 35 match winning streak-- So I wouldn't be at all surprised if she is not getting paid now. She's just loyal to the company.

Thanks for the information. Is that a new dress?

I hope to see Venus in a new outfit so. Venus always looks so elegant!

I wouldn't be surprised if Venus abandoned clothing deals. You know she wants to be a designer
