I just read in the serbian news paper that ANA recieved $10 million after she became #1 in the world...

apperently, it was in her contract with Yonex, if she reached #1 before the end of 2008, she would get her "bouns" which is $ 10 fucking million....on top of what she was already making from them....
Im trying to find it on line, but i cant find it yet... i heard this on the national TV news yesterday too...
I hope she puts it to good use....:)

Serbian press is not trusty source :tape: and i think its only suppostition and nothing else. I even read in "Blic" (http://www.blic.co.yu/sport.php?id=45605) (certain source in comparation with others) that Ana YONEX contract now worth more than 70 millions $$$ :tape::tape::tape: which is simple not serious.

What i know about Ana Yonex contract is that she sign 4 year deal at begining of this season and if she reach #1 before start of 2010 season (which she already do) whole deal will be more than 10M$ worth - not that she will reach 10M+ extra bonus payment in week when reach #1. My personal suppostition is that she will reach about 10M+10M from Yonex (10M contract + 10M maximum of bonuses) in next 4 years plus maybe some extra paid b/c she will probably become new Yonex "corporative face" despite fact that she use only Yonex racquets (without clothing and shoes like Hewitt, Nalbandian, Dementieva...). BTW her contracts with Adidas is also depending on her results and now since she is #1 and slam winner worths (much?) more than month before.

I think that 70m$(35m euros) for 4 years is quite possible.Ana gets 3 million euros(4.5m$) from Verano Motors in Serbia,basically just for photo shooting.

WOW
i just noticed that Anas got
huge hands and legs

I keep reading this observation from various people.
So I took a look... her hands are not pretty and dainty, that is for sure... they look sort of puffy and roundish.
Not sure I would say huge, though.
Her upper legs look a bit puffy too.
Is that what you see or what do you mean by huge hands and legs?


If only Ana should as much commitment as the poor children who worked in the sweat factory to make her tennis products did :rolleyes:

You mean the racquet (Yonex) or the clothes/shoes (Adidas)? Where are her products made? I'm pretty sure Adidas is monitoring conditions in the factories; don't know if Yonex would do so as much since it is Japanese... or maybe they monitor a lot. What makes you think children are making these products in sweat shops?

though her racket is a very good playing racket, very few people buy it and that trend will, undoubtedly, continue
Which model does she use?


I demoed one Yonex and liked it a lot but I don't think any pro is using that model. (RQS 22)



justine was in a slump. she would have done it anyway you dumb prick.

I'm not convinced Ana would have taken over #1 from Justine in 2008; am I a dumb prick? All of us who are not convinced of that? :weirdo: You having a bad day or something?


She actually looks hot this time! She'd be fabulous if she had charisma, some personality and a brain. Too bad.

There are plenty of people who are attracted to her "baby grown up" act. We will have to deal with it, because we are only going to see more and more of her.

more than likely not..... Even withdrawing her name Justine would still be #1 right now without her RG points....so had she played and even won a couple rounds she'd be in a great position to keep it till the US Open... and Sharapova with a 3rd and 4th round at those tournaments plus a pitiful fall would/ and prolly will more than likely end this year as #1 and since Justine more than likely would have held it till at elast August even given her slump (remember she made the quarters of the AO even in a slump.....) no ana prolly never would have gotten to #1 in 08....

I really dont like the brand.

Many people get turned off by Yonex's Isometric (frying pan) shape so it's no surprise.

Yonex has one of the best quality control of all the racquet brands though -- everything looks finished and well-made. In my experience, Wilson has the worst quality control because they are very inconsistent with the specs listed in the racquet.

Because they're ensuring their futures.... not like athlete's careers continue on much past 30 (except golf) and most of the players on tour dont make a million a year.... only a select few do it. And lets be honest once they stop playing its not like many of them are actually educated to do something post their career except maybe become an announcer for the sport.

You also gotta think of the other players who arent winning that get endorsements etc...who arent really winning so they depend on these....and if they're depending on these endorsements to stay on tour while working other jobs you really expect a Ana or a Maria or a Venus Serena, Davenport etc... to be being paid the same amount as them to do endorsements for the same product, when lets face it Serena holding a nike headband will sell a lot faster than Hantuchova holding it. For instance...

Money money money!!

If you had the chance to make a $5 million, or make $30 million, which would you choose? Frankly, I would call any player who turned down all these endorsement opportunities a fool. Are there any examples of athletes or even entertainers who turned down chances to make even more money?

have justine not retired....?
not a chance!

Remember that even winning Rg and justine not participating in it, she still almost 400 points short of justine's ranking points.
And I do beleive that have justine played RG, even in her poor form, she can well defend her title!

So yes, she need to thank justine for that bonus!!!
A donation to justine's charity would be alright............
