Re: The Tennis Week Interview: Bethanie Mattek
Here's one interesting part -
Bethanie Mattek: Initially I was with Nike when I was at Evert's and then I got patch deals so I had to change companies because Nike has a clean contract [no patches permitted]. I had some pretty good deals wearing patches when I was 16 so it was unfortunate because I liked Nike, but you know it just couldn't work out with the patches. So I switched to adidas and was with them for a couple of years. I was in Australia and I got a call from them saying "Listen, you're cut" basically. I was in Australia already with all my adidas stuff and I was like "No way!" I didn't even tell anyone, I was so pissed. I didn't even tell my parents. I was so pissed I was like "I'm not wearing any adidas stuff on court, no way." You know, they cut me right before the tournament, two days before I played. So I basically opened my suit case and looked at all the stuff I had packed to wear out or wear to dinner...
Tennis Week: You mean, you went to your regular clothes?
Bethanie Mattek: Yeah, my regular clothes. I was like: "You know what? I'm just gonna wear these on the court. I don't care."
The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE
