Superman and Seinfeld may soon have company in the American Express celebrity squad. Am Ex has reached an agreement with Venus Williams for a multi-year endorsement deal worth seven figures.
The credit card company plans to launch a world-wide ad campaign centered around Williams during next month's Wimbledon, according to a published report in the SportsBusiness Journal written by Daniel Kaplan.

American Express has earned attention for its eye-catching billboard ads during the U.S. Open that greet fans walking across the boardwalk from the Shea Stadium parking lot or the No. 7 train to the National Tennis Center.

Past American Express U.S. Open ads have included players ranging from Andy Roddick, Pete Sampras, James Blake, Monica Seles, Patrick Rafter, Martina Hingis and Lindsay Davenport to retired Grand Slam champions Althea Gibson, Chris Evert, Bjorn Borg and John McEnroe.

The American Express deal is the latest endorsement contract for Williams, who also endorses Wilson racquets, McDonald's, Wilson Leather and Wrigley's gum. Reebok, the two-time U.S. Open champion's clothing and shoe sponsor, recently opted against renewing the option on her contract with the company. According to the SportsBusiness Journal, Reebok is negotiating a different deal with Williams.

Good for Venus!!! :cool:

Something tells me should Vee continue her spectacular play
and extend her winning streak while winning the French, Wimbledon,
or both, Reebok's going to be singing a different tune.

If it were for DVF I think Vee would've called it quits
when they brought up renigotiating her contract and
would've have continued to wear and endorse their logo
all the while no being paid for it.

What message is this sending to the children? She's already caused the world to get fat with her McDonald's endorsement. Wrigley's gum makes people's teeth rot out, and Wilson's leather endorsement has made everybody kill animals. Now, children will be forced to go over their huge 10 year old spending limits.

Venus Williams is so irresponsible.
