It's really not that hard to understand is it?

Naomi is doing fine , her nike deal is bigger than amanda and she earned it with her results not just her looks. She has 100s of other sponsors paying millions too. It is reported if she wins olympics in tokyo, sky is the limit for her. She is opening new business with lebron james as well.

Andreescu i agree with u here. She deserved more than amanda.

Amanda deal would make sense when she wins a slam. Even maria got such deals after wimbledon win.

Jesus Christ.


Unless they are entitled degenerate Gordon Gekko types, no they should not "feel slighted" over just this.

Re: Amanda Anisimova signs enormous Nike deal

Hope she doesn't get hated for this.

She’s not as bad intentioned as Maria Sharapova, seems to be a genuine side to her.

Tsitsipas & Sakkari outed.

Re: Amanda Anisimova signs enormous Nike deal

Absolutely no way in hell Nike is investing 100m into anyone right now with the state of the game and the general lack of public interest. Max Eisenbud is great at creating this sort of PR though, I must say.

Also, the list Sharapova previous 8-year deal already finished a year or two ago, no?

Its obvious the intentions of making Anisimova/Gauff into the new Sharapova/Serena. We'll see how things turn out in a few years...

Amandaís deal (whatever it is) is chump change for Osaka. I can assure you Nike is paying her WAY more money. Japan is a large population with a lot of $$. Osaka is a global star who is well taken care of by her many sponsors. She could easily be the highest paid sportswoman in ANY sport next year.

Canada population is tiny compared to the United States. I know everyone on this board hates the U.S. but thatís the big market for sponsors, like it or not. Companies are willing to take a gamble now for the future big payoff.

And btw naomi forbes ranking didn't include nike this year which is rumored to be around 10 million dollars per year atleast. That takes her endorsement money to 25 million dollars next year. Next year it will be included as well as 2 or 3 new deals she signed including one with kobe bryant. She also said she is opening new line with lebron james.Her number will be insane next year and she is expected to be face of tokyo olympics. She isn't losing that position till she retires. And if she wins olympics, just imagine the number she will earn. Noone will touch her
Nike not only took her face as japan and asia bcoz she got nike billboard at staples centre if i remember correctly

Amanda deal must have clauses including a slam win first. Nike isn't fool to pay 70 million usd without slam titles. Amanda is capable of winning them but it will take time

I suppose 100 mio is like the potential maximum value under certain circumstances (Slams, ranks, title etc). But yeah, the actual number must be much, much, much lower than this. Nike is not some sort of angel investors or capital ventures that can burn that much money on unfinished product.

Plus they want me to believe that she is getting paid on par with nadal and same nike refused deal with roger federer who is tennis's most marketable star. Sure

Yes, it must be including all the performance bonuses than you can think of and some more.

It's a massive gamble as she's a young teen that just lost her dad. Sharapova became an international superstar overnight because she won Wimbledon by beating Serena as a 17 y.o. Amanda will not have the same name recognition if she beats Bencic to win her first AO in 2021.

Amanda needs to come out of her shell in interviews. She's been media trained within an inch of her life and come across as a little bit bland and robotic although quite nice and pleasant.

Yep, that is the look Nike is going for. They know Sharapova will not play much longer and need a replacement
