If the six-time Grand Slam champion meets performance-related bonuses over the full eight years, she could net close to the $55 million, according to reports. The contract includes royalties and performance bonuses for winning Grand Slam tournaments and reaching No. 1 in the rankings.
Nike had yet to determine the scope of Williams' sponsorship activities but will take input from the 21-year old tennis star on performance and active lifestyle products, including footwear, apparel and equipment, Dave Mingey, a Nike spokesperson said.
Williams' contract with Puma expired earlier this year.
Is that old? did her contract wiyh Puma really just expire? and why do they put the candy on a string and dangle it infront of Serena like she's some little baby
