oh no. i don't know why but i was thinking her contract with adidas could be over...i hope she stays with adidas. maybe nike proposed her some $$$$$$

yeah, that's odd. she has only been wearing adidas since 2004. idk why her contract would be up given her recent results.

maybe her new range of adidas clothes for the australian summer haven't arrived yet. maybe she'll wear them when she plays sydney so ppl i wouldn't push the panic button just yet. besides she still looked good in what she was wearing anyway.

so don't make such a big fuss about it until she actually plays sydney or the AO.

Molik still had on Adidas. :shrug:

I mean, players just don't stop wearing their sponsered clothes like that unless something is up.

If you are sponsered you usually wear the older collection until the newer one comes out.

I mean why would Nadia wear this Wal-Mart outfit if she is has Adidas outfits to wear. :lol:

I spent most of the match trying to figure out what was on the bottom of her skirt and the back of her top. With Nadia performing well last year I wouldn't think Adidas would give her up, I wonder what happened?

Привет
Dec 30th, 2006, 11:03 AM
At the bottom of her skirt and back of her top was a little Russian flag. I wouldn't worry about it, the fact that her clothes had Russian flags on them made me think that she's probably just wearing them because she is representing her country. I know Alicia still wore adidas without an Australian flag on it, but maybe it's just something Nadia wanted to do for a bit of fun.

This would be a good time for her contract to be up with Adidas.

in fed cup players dont always wear their sponsors clothes. instead because its a team event they just wear normal tennis outfits with thier countires flag emblazened on the back.

If Nadia wasn't marketable, she wouldn't be on the Doha poster. Qatar tennis has millions and millions of dollars, and Nadia is a player they want.
She also won both of their tournaments, Doha and Berlin.

Yeah, and it's not an official WTA tourney, so maybe she just felt like wearing something else. I remember last year Ana I was wearing variations of different clothing at HC.

Indeed she does, seeing her in Perth has made me realise that she is alot more friendly and entertaining than I thought. And she has a high pitched cute little voice which I didn't expect :lol: Did anyone (probly only the Aussies because of our ABC coverage) see the story on Tursunov. It showed him making drinks behind a bar at some function and Nadia drank one of them, she was laughing and having fun, really opened my eyes about her.

yes, but on the other hand, players in Hopman cup usually wear clothes from their sponsor. considering that nadia is adidas n°2 player behind justine, i think she would be wearing adidas, normally. in adidas website nadia is listed with the top athletes. with her carreer and excellent results over the past two years, i doubt adidas dropped her. the contract may have ended and nadia has other proposals. (i hope she'll stay with adidas:( )
most important for sport brands is to be seen on tv, and that their players win cups, no matter how glamourous they are. nadia is still young and i don't worry for her, she'll find some sponsor.
