Serena has a $55 million deal with Nike!

SERENA unveils NIKE’s 2008 Women’s line



Serena Williams helped to unveil Nike’s 2008 Women’s Fall Line in Venice, California Thursday. Nike brings a contemporary look for women to choose from with this line, which includes a range of colorful track shorts and jackets.

Serena was the perfect person to introduce the line. After all, she took her 5th Sony Ercisson title and the Family Circle Cup Title this month - plus she is said to have a $55 million dollar deal with Nike.

Good for her

That means Nike picked up the 2-year option on her contract. Another 2 years of sh---y outfits.

In the period from January to April 2006 Dr. Skalny sent very detailed messages to Ms Sharapova [...]: “Mildronate 1-2 X 10, repeat in 2 wks (before training or competition)”; “1 hr before competition, 2 pills of Mildronate”; “During games of special importance, you can increase your Mildronate dose to 3-4 pills (1 hr before the match). However, it is necessary to consult me on all these matters (please call)”; “30 minutes prior to a training session: Mildronat – 1 Capsule. 30-45 minutes prior to a tournament Mildronat 2 capsules”.

Serena Williams Signs $55 Million Nike Sponsorship Deal
Serena Williams last week signed a five-year endorsement contract with Nike that includes the option of another three years. The deal could add up to a reported $55 million.

If the six-time Grand Slam champion meets performance-related bonuses over the full eight years, she could net close to the $55 million, according to reports. The contract includes royalties and performance bonuses for winning Grand Slam tournaments and reaching No. 1 in the rankings.

Nike had yet to determine the scope of Williams' sponsorship activities but will take input from the 21-year old tennis star on performance and active lifestyle products, including footwear, apparel and equipment, Dave Mingey, a Nike spokesperson said.

Williams' contract with Puma expired earlier this year.

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

I can't think of any one more deserving.
She put in the hard work and won her first tournament at the age of, what...4 ½ ?
Is a multi-Gramd Slam and Olympic Gold winner/holder.
A Holder of 4 consecutive Grand Slams titles (the Serena Slam).
A great 'comeback' player (ranked 81 and wins last years' AO).
And just won the Family Circle Cup, to show her renewed dedication to the game.
The Nike marketing Team did their work well.

Do your thang Serena!

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

Does this make her more or less likely to win Roland Garros this year?
