I noticed Chanda was wearing a plain outfit and couldn't find a logo on it, Is she no longer with Adidas? lol, is this old new.

this is old news indeed. they dumped her in the middle of another injury - well they didn't renew her contract or see didn't accept the terms offered.

she is however now reportedly sponsored by ralph lauren so she isn't doing too badly for herself.

i can't say exactly. she wore adidas at the Australian Open but she may have been honouring a contract. all i known is she was injured from early febuary and came back at the tournament before RG wearing polo.

it seems as if adidas is trying to sneak its way out of the tennis apparel market.

it's funny because they used to do huge advertising with hingis and kournikova but they don't really have any marketable figures besides maybe justine in some specific areas of europe. chanda was the only adidas player who always appears on the list of most attractive players etc (babsi profile diminishing) and they didn't keep her so it does indicate they are wanting to spend less. still they have a lot of young players so i doubt they are going to leave completely. plus anna is still on the books i believe

Thanks again. I was asking about the month because I also saw her wearing Adidas at the Hong Kong exhibition before the Australian Open.

Did she also wear Polo at other tournaments before the US Open?

i know im very annoyed that Nike dropped Mary she had no logo at the US. But Chanda is now sponsored by Ralph Lauren Polo

i was sure i saw a very faint nike symbol on mary's clothes but it wouldn't surprise if they had. these companies have no loyalties - it's all business

Mary is still sponsored by Nike. She was wearing it at the US Open.

I'm not sure Chanda actually has a "real" contract with PRL. She wasn't wearing it when I saw her in San Diego, and I didn't notice a logo at the US Open.

Addidas would be RETARTED to drop chanda, that would be suicide!

"I didn't notice a logo at the US Open." - I didn't notice it either.

By the way, you mean you've been to the Acura?

I have known this for a few months indeed. :)

But Mary's outfit still looks like it's Nike's product. :p

There are quite a few new players who have contracts with Adidas, but none of them has as high profile/great access to the US consumer market as Chanda has: Dinara (relatively new), Tamarine (new - first year), Medina (from last year), Petrova (from last year) and Vera Z. (from last year)
