Why did Mary lose racquet sponsorship?

she had it at the beginning of last year didnt she? surely the rest of her 2005 season should have proved she was worthy of sponsorship!

Re: Why did Mary lose racquet sponsorship?

I am not to sure really. I did not really notice the racket that much. As I have my eyes on the Blonde Bomb Shell Fierce Pierce !!!

I must have a look at some recent pics and see what I can see

Mary doesn't need sponsors. Why bother with them?

Re: Why did Mary lose racquet sponsorship?

there's one thread here once reported that Yonix didn't want to sponser her just because they think Mary is old and out of time. Look the Yonix girls, all they sponsering are the young and pretty girls!(that's just Japanese always did)

Re: Why did Mary lose racquet sponsorship?

mary is above them now. She does not need them.

it shows how fickle companys are. I have to say Mary is sexier than any of the younger plays

Re: Why did Mary lose racquet sponsorship?

It was a bit disappointing to Mary to even lose her Nike sponsorship early last year. I mean, they've stuck by Davenport and Sampras and they were or are in the same age bracket. Sponsors look for people to win matches... Mary clearly does that.

However, I think sponsors as mentioned above are looking for young players to promote their products for a decade or so, not for a year or two.

Re: Why did Mary lose racquet sponsorship?

Quite a number of clothing companies no longer bother to sponsor players so I'm not surprised it has spread to equipment too. The market for sponsorship has changed a lot in recent years.

Mary does not have sponsor for anything even for her racquet (she didn't have it in 2005 too)
