She hasn't had a contract with Fila for several years. She was given free clothes from them, but no money [apart from a bonus for 2009 Roland Garros] since 2007/8. Why do you think she was able to accept the Chinese sponsor so quickly?

If she is getting absolutely no money from them, why are they allowed to use her on their website

The free stuff she used to get still cost some money.

So from FILA point of view it's not entirely free.

Re: Good for Sveta:finally sponsored by a Chinese brand Qiaodan

Could one of you give some details of her agreement with Fila where she only gets clothes


Fila Extends Agreements with Grand Slam Champions Kim Clijsters and Svetlana Kuznetsova
Fila announced today that it has extended its endorsement agreements with long-time WTA Tour stars and Grand Slam champions Kim Cljisters and Svetlana Kuznetsova.

Fila announced today that it has extended its endorsement agreements with long-time WTA Tour stars and Grand Slam champions Kim Cljisters and Svetlana Kuznetsova.

“We are thrilled to extend our relationship with Kim Clijsters and Svetlana Kuznetsova,” said Gene Yoon, Chairman of Fila. “Both players are longtime members of the Fila family and have played an important role in Fila’s rich history in tennis. Kim and Svetlana, who are joined by new brand ambassadors Vera Zvonareva and Jelena Jankovic, are ideal representatives of Fila’s core values. Their athleticism, drive and passion exemplify the true beauty of sport that has inspired our brand for over a century.”

Kim Clijsters, who is an inspiration to tennis fans and mothers around the world, has won 41 Sony Ericsson WTA Singles titles and 11 WTA Doubles titles so far in her career. In just her third tournament after returning to tennis in 2009, she turned a US Open wildcard into a history making win to become the first unseeded player to win the US Open and the first mother to win a Grand Slam since Evonne Goolagong-Cauley in 1980. With a renewed passion for the game, Kim went on to win the 2010 Australian Open and WTA Championships. In 2011, she won her fourth Grand Slam in Australia.

Svetlana Kuznetsova has been a consistent and formidable competitor on the WTA Tour since her break-out, Grand Slam title winning season in 2004. Since then, she has ranked in the Top 20 for seven out of the last eight seasons and has won 13 Singles titles and 14 Doubles titles. In 2009, Svetlana won her second Grand Slam at Roland Garros and captured her 14th Doubles title with Mauresmo.

Kim and Svetlana will debut Fila’s spring 2012 Center Court apparel collection at the Australian Open in Melbourne. Visit http://www.fila.com to see the full collection of Fila tennis apparel and footwear.

Fila has a long and distinguished history in the world of tennis that continues with endorsements and sponsorships that include agreements with ATP Tour and WTA Tour athletes. Fila is a sponsor of the Sony Ericsson Open, the BNP Paribas Open and the Campbell’s Hall of Fame Tennis Championships. Fila is also the footwear licensee of The Championships at Wimbledon.

In 2011, Fila celebrated its centennial anniversary, a milestone for this historic brand established a century ago by the Fila brothers of Biella, Italy. Fila is now a leading manufacturer of sport and leisure footwear and apparel distributed worldwide. The internationally respected company, having gained world-class recognition in tennis apparel, has developed brand recognition by marketing high design and style content products that are endorsed by professional athletes from around the world.

Why is everyone shocked she is not with Fila anymore? They obviously dropped her due to lame results, oh the irony ...

Kuznetsova endorsed Fila for their free supply of clothes. She and they also agreed to bonuses should she do well in Grand Slams - which she didn't and/or didn't partcipate in. If it had been a formal endorsement agreement where she received monies up-front, she wouldn't have been able to break it after a year. This is more common than you might think.

Thats interesting. Since Fila seemed to be promoting Sveta, you'd expect they would pay her.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

You get a top 5 player and multislam winner to wear your clothes for free, sounds like a fantastic deal. Bet Clijster wasnt so magnanimous
