Let's continue the discussion here so the picture thread doesn't get taken off topic: I don't understand why Nike would drop her though, they signed her when she was ~#100 and now she's #18. And I doubt that Julia didn't want to extend it as she surely would have had a new sponsor lined up then, but there is none on her sponsor list.
Pretty sure that's just something tennis-point made up. Julia just wore the "Nike player without own collection" stuff last year, but it probably sells better in Germany if they call "it "Julia Görges skirt" instead of "Nike Generic".
The yellow one is for JJ. I think all of these dresses are for Jelena. Fila made great work this year. There was amazing dresses for JJ. After Kim's retirement, there is no big name in Fila, so maybe they decided to sing a contract with Julia. She is one of those players who has the charming look. They need a star, and they see it in Julia

It's also a question of how professional Fila actually is. They have been passed around quite a bit in the last few years. Do they even have the facilities to provide made-to-measure shoes for all their players etc..
