Lindsay addresses Nike Clonewear

Quote:
Q. I couldn't help notice the similarity between you and Ashley, Amelie Mauresmo, a few others, in that you were all wearing the same outfit. Is there a new dress code?
LINDSAY DAVENPORT: Dress code?

Q. So many people seem to be wearing the same thing.
LINDSAY DAVENPORT: I think Nike has given the girls pretty much the same outfit to get it out to the public for this tournament. It's the only tournament we wear the outfit, so I think they wanted as much publicity as they could get for it. I notice they wear a different skirt. You're right, it's the exact same.

Q. The others had different skirts?
LINDSAY DAVENPORT: I think. I don't know. I mean, there's a solid skirt and a printed skirt. I think because we're only wearing it here in Paris, like I said, they wanted all the girls to wear the same thing so it could get as much exposure as possible.

Q. Does that bother you at all?
LINDSAY DAVENPORT: No, not at all.

Q. There's a certain motif. We can see it's light blue.
LINDSAY DAVENPORT: It's just kind of circles. Not tennis balls, but interlocking figures. There's nothing that intricate about it.
Interesting... sounds like the same thing I said here:

the yellow is real lemony. well it could be because I made homemade lemonade for Memorial Day and it's almost gone and I'm out of lemons... I like the blue on Ash but their outfits BLOW. James outfit is the best out of any of the Nike fiends.

... or maybe they don't pay the other players enough money to be able to force them to wear it.

Hmmm sounds like they are trying to hedge their bets that somebody wearing their outfit will be in the final :-)

The should just go ahead an give Serena her 75million dollar contract and call it a day...

....This is fucked up, fucked up....

This is your blind spot, blind spot.
It should be obvious, but it's not.

You cannot kickstart a dead horse
You just crush yourself and walk away
I don't care what the future holds
Cause I'm right here in your arms today
With your fingers you can touch me

I'll be your black swan, black swan
I'm for spare parts, broken up.

They all copy directly copied from Serena's bright red shoes the previous year. Before then, the shoes players wore were perdominantly white. But it seems that only AK fans have a beef about this fashion issue!
