Say it again!!! And a lot of it is really the stupid ESPN idiots like Pammy Puke et al trying to convince fans that being hugely endorsed makes you more popular.

People become fans for the most part for what they see you do on court (and sometimes attitude will even get overlooked) I know on here is the exception since a lot are concerned with looks.

Vika IMHO can be marketed IF HER TEAM so desires. What happened at the AO is only dragged out by people looking for a reason to make more out of something that can be forgiven. YES even in America.

What I often find amusing though is the Maria only fans, seemingly guarded intent on KNOCKING down anyone they feel could cut into her share. Vika may not be that person but just like Kournikova, Maria will be dethroned. It's just the way the world works.

You've outdone yourself. She'll never get massive sponsorships comparable to Maria because the public support she receives is microscopic

Serena could have if she came after Sharapova. its all about timing though and Sharapova came after Serena. The wta Tour and yet to see its next big superstar after Sharapova(American, yes Sharapova is an American endorsement dream). Once you're and established name the endorsement deals dont grow just because you won a title. You have to strike while you're young.

I havent looked at Murray's stuff, but I doubt his endorsements jumped after he won his first Grand slam. everyone already knew his name. he probably got some bonus' though. If you want to see the next girl to pass Sharapoca on endorsements, she young and shes american or american trained. I havent seen any player in the younger American crop who can surpass her though.

She will not be near as Sharapova but she can surpass Li Na.

They dont need it.
No, that is not true. Don't spread misinformation. Again, aside from the Chinese players Nike players aren't allowed to wear sponsorship badges...they weren't even allowed to wear the WTA's own series sponsor badge!

Re: Vika is going to replace Serena,Maria,Na as the richest WTA player

wont happen. Vika is disliked. and if shes not disliked noone knows her. Most of these players get their biggest contracts in the start of their career. Serena/ Sharapova were already pulling bank when they got their second major. She wont be marketable in the US (the biggest market) or China (dominated by Li NA) because shes not american (we all know Sharapova is American) or asian. Sponsors arent going to put big dollars on her.

Tbh. No one can top Masha's sponsors and endorsements. This woman is still the queen. Just signed a huge contract with samsung and properly other ones last year. So i dunno about that one.

Vika will probably still be behind Li Na. Li Na is still in second place in the money rankings in tennis.

Nike players aren't allowed to display sponsorship badges, the only exceptions being the Chinese players as they have an exemption that precedes the current Nike deal.

I forgot she was wearing a Nike spandex.

How about small body paint logos on her upper arms? I wonder if this idea had been patented for tennis player applications - if not, it's mine.

It would be like this but a bit more tasteful and discrete :
