View Full Version : Is It Time For Adidas To Dump Karolina And Sign New Face For Stella McCartney?

a few years ago Adidas dumped Kirilenko for Wozniacki because they wanted more exposure for the Stella McCartney brand ... with Karolina now losing in 3R of slams and 1R of tournaments like Rome, I think it is around that time again for them to seek some more profit on their investment :oh:

here are their top options:

1) retain #9 Karolina and hope she finds her form

2) go back to #17 Kirilenko, who has been associated with the brand before and is now back in the top 20

3) switch to current Adidas signee #10 Kerber, who is a new star in the making and headed in the right direction within the SEWTA top 10 ... she is blonde too which seems like it may be a requirement :rolls:

4) switch to current Adidas signee #14 Ivanovic, who is a slam winner, former #1, glamour girl with VIP status

5) switch to current Adidas signee #15 Petkovic, who has the best personality on SEWTA along with NaNa Li

6) switch to current Adidas signee #18 Hantuchova, the only problem is she may retire soon

7) switch to current Adidas signee #20 Pennetta, who has the propensity to choke in big tournaments

8) switch to current Adidas signee #25 Pavlyuchenkova

9) switch to current Adidas signee #36 McHale ... she is young and this may be the best way for Adidas to corner the US market

10) poach #3 Agnieszka Radwanska ... I think this may be an interesting option ... Lotto is probably not paying Aga that much so if Adidas wants a top 3 player who is always lifting trophies this may be the best

Adidas should sign Fransexa on and give her Stella McCartney :drool:

No, Caroline will still be a consistent top 10 player. They aren't guaranteed that with pretty much anyone else that they could switch to.

I only think they will be decent alternatives ;) but to be honest Adidas should just stay with Caro. Yeah she hasn't been as impressive this year BUT methinks she'll still win more matches than the other 2, AND she'll still top 10 so she'll get TV courts much often. And the whole point was exposure anyway.

But if they WILL drop Caro I think Caro or Domi would make good alternatives.

Ana has made 1 Semifinal all year... that would be horrible exposure for Stella McCartney.

And Domi gets a big win and then disappears for 2 months. Also horrible exposure.

Caroline is the clear choice for now.

Didn't already try Kiri in the past?

She does not stay in the tournament long enough to give long exposure and generate a buzz about the outfits.

That is the same problem with Ana and the rest.


It think it would be a mismatch, miscast for Stosur

Publicity-wise Caro is the best choice right now but no one can look as good as Kiri in these outfits IMO :inlove:Though I guess it also plays its role that the outfits used to be prettier and more original back when Kiri wore them. Stella McCartney is boring these days.

I don't see how the Stella collection is profitable anyway. Not just the tennis stuff but all of her Adidas gear - most of the stuff is ridiculous and even more ridiculously overpriced.

Kiri or Ana. They have the figures to do the "designs" (:scared:) justice. The Dane always looks either dumpy, ridiculous, or like she is wearing a too tight sausage casing. :tape:

Oh gosh. I hate the Stella McCartney range. Its one of the worst, obsure yet mundane 'sportswear'. I dont think I can stomach Angie wearing that shit. I love the general adidas range though.

Aga is number 3, has been winning tournaments and has an amazing figure. She's quite short though.

Jun 3rd, 2012, 04:51 PM
Who would look the best in that line is definitely Kirilenko but they should stick with Caro, she's still top 10 and she can still improve again. Let her slip outside the top 15/20 before considering changing unless you have another player that is higher than her that could pull the clothes off. Ivanovic would look ridiculous in those clothes I think and so would Kerber/Petkovic/Hantuchova/Pavly/McHale.

Sure, it'd be frickin hilarious.

Girl already thinks she isn't paid enough, fire her and see what a strop she pulls. Just wearing free clothes and doing some photo shoots is so not deserving of millions (?) of £$£$....

I would say stay with Caro, but why can't they sign more players on the Stella line? I think Ivanovic would be a good option to represent the brand; she has glamour status and is very popular internationally. Also going back to Kiri would be good as she wears the clothes very well.

Petkovic and Kerber would look ridiculous on McCartney's stuff.

Kirilenko had the perfect, petite almost fragile body to pull it off.

This. :help:

Realistically Kerber, and Woz wasn't exactly a Skinny Minny when she started wearing those 'apparel'
Kerber could potentially be a top 10 main stay for the next few years. Although, would she want to wear that shit?

Kerber doesn't have the starpower or glamour that Caroline (kinda) has.

I think Hantuchova would look better in these outfits. Especially dresses--girls with muscular legs (Kiri, Woz, Stosur)don't wear dresses well imo. Kiri is gorgeous, but she has no hip/waist ratio--she is boxy and muscular like a boy. Yes she has a bigger chest, but Dani has a more feminine shape and less bulky legs. But Dani in her nike shorts/skirts and camisole tanks (2006-2008) were probably the best looks for her.

The Stella line needs more than ONE player. Get Caroline, Kiri, AND someone else. Ana doesn't look right in couture. She looks her best with simple sports dresses, like her bubble dress from 2008 and the cut from this year's dress. Kerber is going in the right direction, but maybe her body is a little too athletic for Stella's designs. Hantuchova or Pennetta would probably be the better options, Hantuchova especially.

But she does not stay in tournaments long enough enough to give the gear maximum exposure.

Caro was making lot of finals an semi-finals, giving lot of buzz to the collection.

I own some of Stella's designs (the yellow skirt from last year's US Open range is my favourite :hearts:) and I absolutely love them. This year's designs have been disappointing but Wozniacki does the clothes no favour either way. Kirilenko looked much better in them.

Daniela is the only model looking. If Stella designs nice clothes and lines, she's the only one who can carry them on court. fashion+sports= highly marketable but Adidas and Stella are just :tape: on that issues, so no doubts. ;)

First of all do ANY of these tennis dresses sell these days?
Its not like in the days of yore when u could have a racket named after you and it would sell or sneakers etc. I cant imagine Stella gets ANY return from paying any tennis player NOT named Sharapova, because the results have to get you photographed AND you have to look good in em.
Radwanska for example has NO shape, th at sack she was wearing didnt help neither!

Both Kirilenko and Ivanovic would look great in the Stella designs but I don't see either of them getting the consistent exposure of Wozniacki in the near future. They would also suit Petkovic's figure but her personality is more fun than high fashion. Stick with Wozniacki for now.
