Why are Venus and Jelena?

Venus' reebok contract expired in 2004 for for 2 1/2 to 3 years she continued to wear their clothes and she was not getting paid.

Jelena is wearing reebok and is not getting paid for it.

Re: Why are Venus and Jelena?

Don't know about Venus but I'm pretty sure JJ is getting paid. Last year, I think in Los Angeles, she wore clothes without any labels so I guess she was in negotations about a new Reebok contract back then 'cause in the next tournament she wore Reebok again and on her website she has a Reebok logo and links to campaigns. I doubt she would do this without getting a pay check...

Re: Why are Venus and Jelena?

Venus was getting a small fee from Reebok up until after Wimbledon last year

"I love the game, I love the thrill, I love the "Go Venus`."
"It takes a lot of work to get to this level, so while I can play I'm going to play."

Re: Why are Venus and Jelena?

they will both be getting something, changing to another company that will only offer the same would be pointless!

I doubt that Venus was wearing Reebok for a small fee,I think it was an arrangement that she wears Reebok without too much commitment from her.She was still wearing the exclusive outfits,maybe she signed a smaller contract after her bigger commitment expired.

Re: Why are Venus and Jelena?

Venus got bonus money for wearing Reebok, plus she was in the process of doing her own line therefore it makes sense to wear what she had until her line was ready.
