Says so on her website. She is the youngest athlete to sign a clothing deal for the rest of her career. Financial details remain unknown... Ana is "excited" (as always).

Ivanovic signs career-long Adidas deal




Basel, Switzerland - Ana Ivanovic may have gone 0-3 in weekend Fed Cup play as Serbia lost to 3-2 to Russia, but the one-time French Open champion proved she's still a star with sponsors after signing a lifetime deal to stay with adidas clothing.

The former number one player who now stands 23rd as she fights to lift after a year-long slump, will wear the German "three-stripe" gear for as long as she stays in the sport, her management team announced Monday.

Ivanovic joins Andy Murray as recipient of a recent contract with the firm. The company lost world number two Novak Djokovic when his contract expired prior to the start of the 2010 season.

Officials said that Ivanovic, 22, will become a brand ambassador for the company, the youngest-ever athlete - male of female - to sign an agreement of this length.

"I'm very proud to wear adidas for the rest of my career. Adidas has helped me immensely over the last few years by providing me with great products and unique services off the court including the adidas Player Development Program," said the Serb

"This long-term contract extension means a lot to me and was a logical decision." - Sapa-dpa

I guess they don't want another Djokovic situation. Smart move in theory by Adidas, but seeing how her career is going I'm not sure if there will be a big rush for young girls to buy the clothes Ivanovic wears.

I mean c'mon, with a straight line like that...

You do kind of have to wonder, though. With Justine back, Caro in the stable and Kiri suddenly looking like a good investment why they were so hot and bothered to lock Ana up? Of course, cheap shots aside, Anna K sold a lot of clothing long after she'd ceased to get results, and I still see as many girls at tournaments dressed like mini-TOBs as ever, so maybe they know what they're doing.

Hell, I even saw a racket with a photo of Agnes Szvay on it. It didn't even have a caption telling who she was. I mean if some manufacturers think your average American girl (and it was a junior racket) is going to swoon and say to Mom or Dad "OMG, I want this one, AGNES SZVAY plays with it!!!!!" :weirdo: I mean some of the marketing decisions around this sport...

(Not that I have anything against Agnes, but geez, if you wanted to sell rackets in Europe I doubt you'd stick Melanie Oudin's photo on it).

I noticed photos of Monfils being used in racquets during his Mug Years, and also images of Myskina as late as 2007.

But a racquet I saw back in 2007 with photos of LaLo and PHM in it sure takes the cake.

Venus and probably even Serena is difficult to sell in Europe and Asia. It is unfair but that's how it had been and that's how it is even now. They're not as open as America.

Nole left Adidas for Sergio Tacchini, right?

My guess is that Adidas saw a chance of securing GOAT Ivanovic at a bargain price when compared to what an exclusive lifetime deal with Dan Holzmann her would have cost say a couple of years ago.

Correct. Although given that the only Noletards are Serbians and a few others scattered around the world like myself, I doubt Adidas was making that much off of him anyway. I haven't seen anyone using that racquet of his (besides Groenefeld).

And I'm sure she was quite cheap. Sven probably gave her the low offer and then promised it would improve her results. Kind of like moonballing and rushing the net.

By the way.. the adidas store here is pure Ana. There are pictures of her all over the store.. only of her, nobody else. And the biggest tennis store here, which is huge, has 5 big windows, each with a wall sized poster of a tennis player: Ana, Sharapova, Nadal, Federer and Djokovic. So even with the crappy results, she must still sell.

As a certified Ana hater, I'll skip that issue. Unless we get a triple feature like last year. :drool:

On the other hand, maybe fans like you should take heart. I mean, Kiri poses, and year later she has some of the best GS results of her life.

Correct. Although given that the only Noletards are Serbians and a few others scattered around the world like myself, I doubt Adidas was making that much off of him anyway. I haven't seen anyone using that racquet of his (besides Groenefeld).

On the ATP, there isn't much room for anybody else but Federer and Nadal. There's Murray and his built-in UK fanbase, and everybody else pretty much fighting for crumbs.

I don't think Nole has the following that one could expect, considering what a fun, intelligent man he seems to be; I remember that when he was here at the Estoril Open in 2007, he kept going out of his way to please the crowd, but the locals didn't warm up to him all that much.

And I'm sure she was quite cheap. Sven probably gave her the low offer and then promised it would improve her results. Kind of like moonballing and rushing the net.

:devil:

But seriously, the driving force behind this was probably Holzmann.

I was just thinking today: put Holzmann and Daddy Wozniacki down in a pit. Then roll Ratwanska in glue, cover her with 500 € bills and thrown her down into the pit as well.

I think the reason Venus didn't have a sponsor was more a case of Venus wanting another crazy record breaking deal back then even though she was out of the top 10. :lol: And also her ambitions as a designer.

You know, I think that Murray's popularity over here is kinda overrated. Bar the losers we see every year at Wimbledon trying to dress up as himI don't think he's really more popular than Novak at all. He's a poor, poor substitute for Timothy. And I think being at Adidas won't have the same kind of effect as the Fred Perry&Andy Murray partnership had. I think that was an awful move by Adidas to replace Nole with Andy. If Nole gets his results together I think he definitely has a chance to become extremely popular worldwide because of his popularity. Especially now he's the new World No.2. :bowdown: And French Open '10 Champion!!!!

Feb 9th, 2010, 08:25 AM
I suspect that when her contract was up for renewal her management team would have been selling her to other apparel companies with no success - hence them offering her for much less money and for a longer period of time.

I'd think the financial terms would be in adidas favour!

you've got a better chance of escaping some of those clauses for bonuses etc where you have to pay the player chunks of money for their continued success: more success in slams etc the more the brand is out there = the more money they pay you...

ana = in a slump and hasn't proved she can come out of it so yea they'll sponsor her but she probably won't be raking in the most she probably could with the contract...

compare that to serena's sister who you have seen slumping but has still won slams despite being written off :shrug: her name alone will put the brand in the spotlight so you've definitely got to dish out more for her PLUS her winning...

compare that to serena's sister who you have seen slumping but has still won slams despite being written off :shrug: her name alone will put the brand in the spotlight so you've definitely got to dish out more for her PLUS her winning...

So mean. You're gonna hear from Uranium. :lol:

I don't care what that bitter bitch says. She is just such a sour bitch that Venus beat Serena at Dubai. GET OVER IT. Now she is a hater. Please, she has called Venus Cheatus, Penus, the other williams. Calling her Serena's sister is a good thing. She is classless. And may I just say calling Venus cheatus still has me laugh considering had Venus not challenged, Serena would have won a point she shouldn't have since that ball was clearly out and the time is at the discretion of the umpire, so not Venus' fault or problem.
