Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

According to translation.babylon.com Italian to English

riferitele v. report, tell, relate; attribute, refer

Probably has more meaning in the context of a phrase rather than stand alone.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

I found an English version!

Quote:
Milos, knocked out in the second round at Wimbledon, said: “Laura is really nice – she’s funny but don’t tell her I said that. It would be great if she could do well at her home slam.” A source close to Laura said: “Milos and Laura goof around together and there is a chemistry there but tennis, and not boys, is her priority.”

It's a new art form showing people how little we care.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

Has Laura ever been papped going shopping before? Thank god tennis is only 2 weeks a year in Britain and they'll forget about her when she goes to the states.

They won't care. Converse is a recognisable enough brand in its own right that it really doesn't matter. Most people probably don't even know Converse is owned by Nike.

It doesn't matter what 'most people' think, it matters what ADIDAS thinks and at a guess wearing shoes by a competitor won't sit that well with them.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

I doubt Adidas will care much either. Laura isn't contracted to advertise/wear Adidas products intended for anything other than playing tennis. Converses are aimed at a different market to the shoes Laura would wear on the court. Laura isn't going to sell less tennis shoes because she was papped wearing converses. The people who would go out and buy the tennis shoes worn by the British Number one aren't going to change their mind and get Converses instead if they're looking for something to play tennis in.

Are you privy to what is in the contract?

It is NOTHING to do with selling shoes, it is about wearing another brand which is owned by their most hated rival. I doubt Laura will be seen with them on again.

When Laura played with the red adidas shoes at the Olympics last year there was a huge amount of interest in the UK about them and it wasn't for tennis, it was because they looked good. I was even thinking of getting a pair but am iffy about the adidas quality.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

Umm... Pretty sure Kotre's right here..clothing contracts are normally only for tennis related stuff, not everything offcourt (unless perhaps you're someone like Sharapova and even then...).

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

Yeah I saw that, I don't know I thought it could have been worse, there were some positive comments. Anything that isn't entirely negative in GM is kinda a win
