Re: Serena has a $55 million deal with Nike!

so she it looks like that deal is expiring this year unless Nike picks up the option. I wonder if they're waiting to see if she wins a slam. Cuz that would put a lot of extra pressure on her. Anyone know if Nike's picked up her option?

yes, its old and not accurate... When Serena's deal was released there were tons of repots thats just the first article he found on it... im sure her deal was worth much more than 55 if the added years werent on there. WHy?

Because Venus' reebok deal was worth 40 mil without stipulations regardless of her performance she would get 40 mil... Nike missed out on Venus I assume cause they were being too cheap so when they went for Serena considering she had won 5 of 6 GS and Venus (when she signed her deal hadnt won any) Serena's deal includes stipulations bonus' etc... which would put her over 60 mil if she was #1 won GS... so IMO its not likely that Serena's deal was so close to Venus and would just now be going over 55 with the extension

40 mil/5 = 8 mil a year...
55mil/8= 6.875 mil a year.....

If she wins a slam or two this year she can renegotiate her contract.She has a chance to make money with new contracts at the end of the year ,after winning all over the place she will have leverage.

That Nike "swoosh" just keeps getting bigger and bigger.

I pass on clothes/bags/etc. when the logo is too big.

But this is ridiculous.

55 million

Film, a mirror of the society. A good half-and-half mix of indie & mainstream.
