Re: Casey Dellacqua's sponsor

I dont think she had a sponsor last year at the Aussie Open and she said something about buying her gear at target and that lead to them offering her a sponsorship. I think, I could have some facts wrong but I think thats right.

Re: Casey Dellacqua's sponsor

yeah I think she wore Nike clothes but wasn't really sponsored by them. So any sponsor that pays her money is better than wearing Nike for free.

Re: Casey Dellacqua's sponsor

Target in Australia don't make tennis clothes but whoever is clothing Casey did a good job at the Hopman cup. I don't think it was nike either as they have a no patch clause in contracts and the swoosh was missing.

Re: Casey Dellacqua's sponsor

Yeah, she spoke of struggling on the ITF tour last year when she made the 4th round at the Aussie Open. Mentioned that she had to buy all her clothes at Target and then Target sponsored her. She is all over the Target magazines now and has to have their logo on her clothes(not sure if they are Target clothes or not) but they do look pretty nice.

Re: Casey Dellacqua's sponsor

Find it a bit surprising no-one snapped her up after her fairly decent efforts in the 2007 Aus Open, I just assumed she already had a sponsor by 2008!

Re: Casey Dellacqua's sponsor

She's left handed?
But the first outfit is very nice.
Target is a multi-billion dollar industry
Nonthing is wrong with being sponsored by a superstore.
Atl east she has a sponsor and is not a la bartoli.

Re: Casey Dellacqua's sponsor

I think some people in this forum (not this thread) have no idea how expensive it can be to play professional tennis--after you pay for coach, taxes, etc. you barely break even in the top 100

She was wearing Target clothes. Yeah, she was buying clothes at Target after beating Mauresmo and did a big photoshoot and stuff so they decided to sponsor her I think they might do some sort of custom thing for her I thought some of the Nike stuff she wore at first had been given to her by Target

My number one: Victoria Azarenka

ATP: Novak Djoković

Re: Casey Dellacqua's sponsor

Where have you guys been? Casey was not sponsored by Nike, she stated after she beat Mauresmo that Target offered to sponser her, because one of the stories of the 2008 Austrailian open was that she was a regular joe who bought her clothes from target.

Serena Williams

Sharapova
