To end, how do you explain the fact you don't have contract with a manufacturer?

-So far, I would have told to you to ask my agent, but I have no more agent either! In fact, I was under contract with Nike and Yonex, two companies of great quality.

Contracts ended and I thought that what they proposed to me was insulting me. I did not so accept. I prefer to play unmarked, rather than to accept something that I consider as being unacceptable. It is a personal choice.

I always believed in me but in a time, there is a lot of people who believed in me. I knew that I was going to have results again. And now, I hope to return in the top 10. I have some purposes, I want to play Masters at least once before retiring, I want to win a tournament of the GS and I want to be again among the 10 better players of the world. I think that it is feasible. But it is going to come true? I don't know if it will come true, with such results, I could have contracts with companies where I feel that they are good people, that I respect and concerning products which I love. It is very important that people respects me also.

Today, I do not need a lot of people around me, to" deals ", many things. I prefer the quality that quantity. I earned some money in my career, I do not play for the money. I see really things differently that before.

Thank Saby!
It's a very interesting point of view. Mary shows her class. It's a bit strange also that sponsors don't have too much respect for Mary and propose her some not enough money.

De rien, depuis le temps qu'on cherche à savoir pourquoi elle n'a plus de sponsor, bon j'espère quand même qu'il y en a un qui va lui faire une proposition, comme ça peut être on va la voir dans des pubs ou des shows plus souvent....

En tout cas, moi je trouve ça bien... Mary agit avec beaucoup de dignité. Elle n'a pas à tolérer un manque de respect de la part de ses sponsors ou son agent. Une championne de son niveau est en droit d'attendre beaucoup plus, et si son rang et son palmarès ne sont pas honorés dans ses contrats, elle fait bien de partir.

De toute façon, comme je l'ai déjà dit une fois, j'avais appelé Octagon il y a quelques temps en arrière pour essayer de savoir quels étaient leurs pojects médiatiques en ce qui concerne Mary, et j'ai tout de suite compris par leur réponse qu'ils n'allaient pas se fouler pour elle. Dire que c'est la raison pour laquelle elle avait quitté IMG dans le temps... c'est dégoutant, ces boîtes n'ont décidément de respect pour rien et en plus ils ne voient pas plus loin que le bout de leur nez, ils doivent bien s'en mordre les doigts maintenant au vu de ses derniers résultats... en plus s'ils se donnaient un tant soit peu la peine, ils se rendraient compte que Mary a un groupe de fans très solide et loyal et que ça pourrait vraiment leur rapporter de lui faire signer des contrats...

Pauvres gens!

LOL... yeah I totally agree with you, and towards the end they changed Mary's headband, I used to love the ones she wore in the late 90's, but they just had to go change the design, didn't they?! Oh well, I guess it's a moot point now...

Je crois qu'apres ses blessures en 2000/01, les sponsors lui ont donné l'aumone. Bad luck for them !!!!!

Quel prix de mon amour! Il craint des pleurs qu'il m'oblige à répandre . Insensible au feu le plus tendre dont un coeur ait brûlé jamais , quand mes soupirs ne peuvent suspendre l'injustice de ses projets . Il fuit pour ne les pas entendre.

(July 4th, 1994 - August 5th, 2009) I love you so much... I miss you so...

Hello, guys! Thanx for the translation, Saby. I was wondering what kind of sport clothes now has Mary? Is it just WTA, actually i didn't notice the "wta" mark on it. The more i get to know about Mary, the more I see what a good person she is. She doesn't want to work with sponsors, she wants to work with PEOPLE which is more important. And btw, her uniform, especially at Rolland Garros, looks cool, doesn't it? =)
