Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

I don't know how Nike is seen in continental Europe but I'm sure Adidas is king there. I could totally see Nike focus more on Asia + the English-speaking world.

So I could see Nike spending big to going after one of Adidas' core territories with Laura. Donna speaks UK-English like a native too, so the two of them would be a powerful combination in the UK market. Throw in all the young North-American girls they have now, you have a really good group that's marketable to all English-speaking markets.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

I wouldn't say adidas is king in continental Europe - it's certainly bigger than it is in North America, but Nike is still probably the market leader.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

It's gonna be harder to defend the points in Guangzhou as it's now a $500,000 event which means the tournament could have 2 (I think) top 10 players!

Yes but right now they don't have a top 10 , we will see. Not sure it changes anything for Laura though(they are not getting a top 6)

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

Good decision of Laura's 21 of the current top 25 have played in Auckland. It is a step in the right direction.

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

Not that I'm complaining!

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

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

I was hoping she'd play Auckland. Good decision, Laura

Kuznetsova
