Question Will Fran and Sam Play on Centre Court @ Wimbledon, USO, Receive New Endorsements?

it will be interesting to see how Francesca and Sam are treated at tournaments from now on, now that they are Grand Slam winner and finalist status ... for example at Wimbledon will they play their match on Centre Court / Court 1, or will they join JaJa on Court 18

also will Francesca and Sam now receive many endorsement deals? what are possible products they endorse

They might get some endorsement deals but not many...
maybe a raise from who they already have
No center court, unless someone better isn't playing at the same time as them
They will probably be on a single digit court though..

IN the USA Stosur with her personality will not fill Arthur Ashe,Schiavone might get attention because of the Italian New Yorkers.Stosur will definitely get meaty endorsements from Australia..

I'm going to make a prediction - Samantha Stosur will win more Grand Slams in her career than Francesca Schiavone, and because of that she will make more appearances on Centre Courts at Grand Slams.

Thank you for everything Mercedes, now please be nice to Socrates for me, perhaps fetch him a bird or two. We love you, always.

Venus an serena barely managed to get on CC at wimbledon last year with 7 wimby titles between them, I don't see any favours for Sam and Fran, not when they continue to have only one lady's match on CC per day. If serena begins as defending champ. on day one, venus may get that on day 2, then we have maria, justine, kim, who need to be on centre court too. Don't forget the likes of Caro and JJ (though court 18 and a helicopter are standard issue for her). The next time serena gets on centre court would probaly in the QF if she gets that far.
Wimby just sucks and blows when it comes to women.

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.

This past week alone has showen how much Fran's GS win means to Italy. Endorsements don't need to be in the form of wearing clothes or starring on TV. They also come in the form of speaking and appearances. Something Francesca will do well in. She's a character, people will want to have her at there event. Just because she may not be all over the papers of TV in the USA it does not mean shes not reaping the rewards.

If they last til the QFs they'll get Centre Court. As for endorsements, Stosur is an interesting mix. When she's got the sunglasses on, she's The Terminator. Without them, those blue eyes are guileless.

If she wins a couple slams, she's an entre to a totally new demographic. Without the specs, you want to be her Mom.

Bartoli vs Krajicek, a QF, was played on Court 2.

The answer is No, No, No, and No.

Wimbledon will put Stosur on center court if she plays Laura Robson, and it would be because of Laura Robson.

Re: Will Fran and Sam Play on Centre Court @ Wimbledon, USO, Receive New Endorsements

It wouldn't surprise me if they put Schiavone on CC for her opening match. They did that for Myskina the year she won the French Open. Either way though, they will certainly be on show courts at the Slams now, even if it's the first match of the day on Court 2 for Wimbledon or the Grandstand for the US Open.

Neither one of them will get big international endorsements, but they will be paid extremely well to promote events and products in their own countries. The first Italian woman to win a slam, and the best female player Australia has had in the last 30 years...there will definitely be people who will jump at the chance to work with them.

Her Oakley sunglasses are the best, I want one...

But Francesca will be on court 17 and Stosur probably will be on court 4

Venus - Kvitova - Golden Flowers - A.K. Schmiedlova - Stephens - Stosur - Woz
