Serena' clothes have been looking drap of the late. Other people are wearing her clothes. Has her contract come to an end and Nike is doing her a la Venus with Reebook?


There haven't been any releases of Serena specific clothes. Her contract is supposed to end in 2008 so I think her time with Nike has either already come to an end or slowly winding down.

Simple math would tell you that her 5 year contract starting in 2004 would not be over.

2004 - Year 1
2005 - Year 2
2006 - Year 3
2007 - Year 4
2008 - Year 5

The deal is for five years guaranteed with a two-year option. Before this year, all of Serena's clothes and shoes had her name on them. This year, they don't. It ain't looking good.

That's not true. Venus had a two-year option on her deal, and Reebok declined to pick it up.

Who the hell cares!? It's Serena Williams. She pretty much started this tennis fashion craze, she won't be out there looking like M. Drake, Amy Frazier, or even Jelena J.

I get a Nike catalog in the mail every month and Serena's clothes that she wears on the court are always in it. In fact Serena and Maria are featured with some other lesser known female athletes on the front cover for the spring 2008 catalog. Serena is smiling on the cover with the word athlete on her shirt.

The shoes that Serena wears have her "SW" logo on the tongue.

and people can BUY her clothes :lol: there's no rule against players buying her stuff :lol:

Maria's name isn't on any of her stuff :shrug: and a few people have worn some of her clothes.

I thought she was still getting paid by Reebok to wear their clothes.

I could have sworn I read an interview on here by someone from Reebok after Wimbledon last year.

Those were ALL Serena specific designs. And that's just from 2007-now. Not to mention that last year, her shoe was called the "SW Begins" and this year, her shoes have the "SW" signage from 2004 on the tongue

here it's on the headband.

Her contract is supposed to end in 2008 so I think her time with Nike has either already come to an end or slowly winding down.She won a major last year, and just tied Steffi Graf's record for most Miami titles. Nike would be STUPID to drop her.

Yes, Venus' 40 mil deal wasnt renewed but she was still getting paid to wear them.... until she booked her steve and berry's deal fall of 06 so that come right before wimbledon 07' venus had totally been "dropped" by Reebok, when actually she did infact leave them...
