Simona, at #5, deserved an exclusive kit. And that's what Adidas, her original sponsor offered her, along with more money. My guess is that her Adidas kit will be low-key, similar to something Justine Henin wore. I can't imagine her wearing the uniform blue kit that we've seen Hantuchova, Ivanovic, Muguruza, and Cirstea wear. For Simona, a kit like that is too "loud," or at least you get that sense from her.
By the way, anybody know why Simona and Adidas parted ways back in February 2012? I wouldn't be surprised if Adidas decided to take her back because she ascended to #5 in the rankings.
I'm not an expert, but I think Adidas always has two different 'lines' of outfit:
'trendy' or 'stylish' worn by Ivanovic, Cirstea and co. and 'sporty' worn by Petkovic or AMG
However, I hope she will get her own line soon enough if her results and reputation keep growing.
Yeah, Lacoste's outfits are too bland. A player never gets a specific kit made for themselves, which means they don't stand out. Simona was basically wearing the same kit that Domi was wearing, just opposite colors.
OMG!!! I hate that kit. That blue kit doesn't fit Simona at all. I don't know what that crap is on the front of the dress is, but it looks ugly. I wish Simona chose to go with the Adidas Basics collection, similar to what Petkovic has. It's low-key, but still looks stylish.
She's #5 in the world. She should look like she's #5 in the world. Not like other Adidas wearers. If Woz and Kerber can get their own kits, Simona should get hers.
He said the last match he saw Simona play (live in the audience) was the Rome SF against Serena, and commented that she did not employ the best tactical plan as opposed Ana's recent conquest against her.
I did not see the Rome SF so I wouldn't be able comment.
Have you seen that ludicrous display by Tiriac regarding Simona after Sor-Ana game on Dolce Tv? Man, the guy is a joke and this is getting older
If you signed up just to say this, then it's sad .
If a billionaire who was a good -> very good tennis player , a Grand Slam winner (doubles) , a coach of very big tennis players and is financing ATP tournaments , and in Romania, at least the BRD Open, 3/4 challengers, 10 futures, a tennis base in Brasov , and probably many other tennis related things is a joke , then I would like to be a joke every day.
