rhz, I looked at your photos...I'm positive Lisa is still with Prince. I've seen Nadia wear a similiar outfit at Stanford. Nadia's was more daring as the straps went around her neck ending in a cross shape in the back. Its actually a really pretty dress the dark blue one with the orange straps. Plus if you look at that dress...its in the same exact colors as the pic I posted :D

OK I believe you now, when i saw her match vs Pierce the Prine logo on her chest wasn't there, only the logo on her skirt and at the bottom of her shirt, maybe that is a new Prince logo.

Isn't Myskina with Puma and not nike?

Dava

She was with Puma, because she also wore that skin tight cat suit.

Also Bovina was with Nike, then she was with someone else, and then she dressed but in three brands for Wimbledon. I dont think she has any sponosors at the momment.

Asa Svensson : Asics

I find it so sad that a creative company like Puma doesn't have a lot of players. I really don't understand. Myskina did a bad choice in going to nike, instead of sticking with Puma.. Puma's obviously better than Nike.

I hope Serena sticks with Puma!! 4-EVA!

Gagliardi wears alot of Puma, she was wearing it right up to the Australian Open. As it is De ja Vous, I manage and monitor with a few other associates the offical website of Emmanuelle Gagliardi. www.gagliardi.ch.

From there Emmanuelle does pass info onto her associates, and her Swiss Advisor (Elanor Barelli) which inturn pass any up and coming information onto us, from who we put onto the website for fans of Emmanuelle. We havn't heard of anything about changing apparel, but I will ask Elanor sometime to see if it is true.

Part of the Season last year was that her shoes were from Sergio Tacchni, She might have changed them now. Her tops and Apparrel did change for the clay season, but in Aussie Puma is what she did wear. Again When I next here from Elanor, I will get the full pitcure.

Do some of these players really have clothing contracts or do they wear whatever they want to wear?

I don't think a lot of the lower ranked players have clothing contracts...a lot of times they just buy clothes themselves...so its hard to tell which players are actually under contracts and which are not. This is reflected in the variability of what they wear throughout the year. For example, Tatiana Perebinyis was wearing Reebok at Birmingham and now she is wearing Fila. I assume she got contracted with Fila.

I don't think its Tacchini anymore...the logo is too "sloppy." The logo for Tacchini is a lot cleaner with the T contained within the S of the logo. We'll have to see what Farina Elia is wearing...plus its not very Tacchini looking.

Hmmm....

If you do NOT even HAVE a clothing contract, do you have to play in your undies??

This may explain the reason some of the girls show up in different makers clothed.

If I were female and playing tennis, I would pick what I liked at the time from ANY of the sponsers.

Maybe I could land a contract from one of them!!.

Item of possible interest. In 2000, Venus's contract with Reebok had run out, and while she was NOT getting paid to wear their clothes, she continued to wear them. Can you imagine how thrilled the execs at Reebok were as she went on her tear in the last half of 2000, winning two slams and Olympic gold. This simple decision of hers to continue wearing the brand is what netted her the $40 million contract.
