Serena To Dump PUMA & Hop Aboard The NIKE Ship

Tennis Magazine, Page 25:

Serena Williams has dominated Venus Williams on court recently, and next year she may one-up big sis off it. Serena's shoe and apparel contract with Puma is about to expire, and industry insiders say that she's on the prowl for a deal, perhaps with Nike, that would blow Venus' $40 million Reebok package (heretofore the most money for a woman ahtleet) out of the water. Nike had no comment.

I think she may stay with Puma. They gave Serena her own line, didn't they?

Serena wore Reebok in expos as a kid and until 97 or 98 when she played a few tournaments like Chicago and Sydney where she wore Nike.

If serena joins Nike she will be their premiere tennis athlete. Period. Why can't you accept that lindsay just isnt as popular as serena. its just a fact.

How much does lindsay get for her nike deal?

serena is also number 1 in the world, she deserves to be number 1 if she gets a contract now, even if she was the most impopular of them all!

I think Serena should stick with PUMA

I don't necessarily agree with a lot of Serena's outfit tastes, but I think it's great that PUMA has given her so much freedom to go along with what Serena likes. At least what she wears, is a reflection of Serena's personality and tastes, and I think that's a good thing regardless of what anyone else thinks of those tastes. Better than being another Nike or Adidas robot clone.

"Religion has actually convinced people that there is an invisible man living in the sky who watches everything you do, every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do. Any if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever 'til the end of time!

But he loves you."
