Serena's Puma Contract

Thought you all would like to know....

I was listening to sports report on ESPN this morning and they reported that Serena is negotiating a 62 million dollar over 5 years contract with Puma....

Everyone cross your fingers and wish her luck!!!
Watch out Venus, w/ your 40 million contract. This is just great news to hear. I hope this happens. Then Serena is taking over venus on everything. Venus was the higest endoursed athelete, now it might be Serena. Watch our Anna. Looks like everyone really knows who is better to endourse!

WOW.. she will be #1 among women athletes. DAMB...

"I told her, `You don't want to get into a hitting battle with Sharapova, because it would be uneven for Sharapova, because Sharapova only has one good side and that's her backhand,"'. "`You don't want to get into that for the simple reason you would win. So try to hit some balls to her strong side, to her backhand, and that would help you with your match for tomorrow

But also we should remeber that Venus did open up the door for Serena and all the rest of these female athletes. Such great news. I bet Serena will really be styling now. Now we are waiting for her own clothing line to open up. Whew things are happening extra fast!

Actually, I would rather she got 57 million, and Puma gave $10,000 a year for the next five years to players #101 to #200. Serena can make up the million a year in music videos and movies.

If she sign her 62 millions contract, will she get 62 millions? Or the outfits are in?

Well unless she has some very bood accountants, which she may well have, uncle sam will take a huge chunk of her money.

perhaps if she created a foundation or charity organization overseen by her and then had puma cut her organization a check instead of her, she then could have a serena williams shopping spree event or a serena williams housing development fund to meet the housing needs of serena williams. sounds crazy but people did that, until a year go when congress nixed it a little over two years ago, i think.

Anton, Anton, Anton, Serena needs to break the 60 mil barrier so Venus can get 70 mil. Recognize the game why don't ya?
