she had it at the beginning of last year didnt she? surely the rest of her 2005 season should have proved she was worthy of sponsorship! :lol:

I am not to sure really. I did not really notice the racket that much. As I have my eyes on the Blonde Bomb Shell Fierce Pierce !!!

I must have a look at some recent pics and see what I can see

its the same racquet but it just doesnt have the yonex sign on the strings. i think she uses the same racquet as michaella krajicek and paradorn srichapan but they are both sponsored :sad:

Mary doesn't need sponsors. Why bother with them?

there's one thread here once reported that Yonix didn't want to sponser her just because they think Mary is old and out of time. Look the Yonix girls, all they sponsering are the young and pretty girls!(that's just Japanese always did)

mary is above them now. She does not need them.

it shows how fickle companys are. I have to say Mary is sexier:hearts::hearts: than any of the younger plays

It was a bit disappointing to Mary to even lose her Nike sponsorship early last year. I mean, they've stuck by Davenport and Sampras and they were or are in the same age bracket. Sponsors look for people to win matches... Mary clearly does that.

However, I think sponsors as mentioned above are looking for young players to promote their products for a decade or so, not for a year or two.

Quite a number of clothing companies no longer bother to sponsor players so I'm not surprised it has spread to equipment too. :( The market for sponsorship has changed a lot in recent years.:rolleyes:

Mary does not have sponsor for anything even for her racquet (she didn't have it in 2005 too)
