Amanda Anisimova signs enormous Nike deal

NEW YORK POST

By Marc Berman

American teenager Amanda Anisimova has signed a whopping new long-term endorsement deal with Nike worth in the Maria Sharapova neighborhood, according to tennis sources.

The deal for the 18-year-old is believed to be one of the largest ever for a teenager. Sharapova is soon to finish up an eight-year Nike deal worth $70 million.

Anisimova, who was born in Freehold, N.J. to Russian parents and moved to Florida when she was 3, is currently ranked 21st – the youngest women’s player in the top 60. She is an up-and-coming star after reaching the French Open semifinals in June at age 17.

Tennis insiders believe that Anisimova faring so strongly on clay at her near 6-foot stature was a significant indication of potential greatness.

As a junior, Anisimova won the 2017 U.S. Open girls’ title, beating the other teenage sensation, Coco Gauff, in the final. Anisimova has only played the main event at the Open once, losing in the first round in 2018. Anisimova missed the 2019 U.S. Open because of the death of her father/coach Konstantin and hasn’t played much since.

Women’s tennis is on solid ground, even if Serena Williams retires shortly. Anisimova, Gauff, 2018 Open champion Naomi Osaka and the new U.S. Open champion, Bianca Andreescu of Canada, makes for a compelling future.

Re: Amanda Anisimova signs enormous Nike deal

Good for her. I like Amanda and her game.

Why does every article about women’s tennis these days insist on telling us how the sport is on “solid ground” and there is nothing to worry about when certain players retire?

The article is poorly written?

Would like some more detail on this.

Tell people something enough times and they will believe it.

And if your life were gold, how long do you think you'd stay living?

Re: Amanda Anisimova signs enormous Nike deal

Thats certainly a good sign for the sport. If I was looking at a list of Australian Open contenders, I probably wouldnt see Anisimova in a top 10, and she's signing a huge Nike deal

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Anisimova has a smooth game but wouldn't be surprised if she's not even as good as Yastremska.

Re: Amanda Anisimova signs enormous Nike deal

Whilst on one had I think its great and I want nothing more for her than huge success and stardom and having her own line like Serena and Maria...I dont think she has had the results yet to back up this sort of deal. Its a lot of pressure and can lead to huge scrutiny if the results dont come instantly. Max is good at making things happen and creating global superstars but I think she is in a delicate phase ATM and I would hate for this to go horribly wrong because of increased scrutiny.

Over how many years?

I honestly think partner with Carlos if it’s a good match- it can be quite formidable.

Re: Amanda Anisimova signs enormous Nike deal

Happy for Amanda. I love her talent, and Nike apparently must, too - that's a lot to invest in a player whose accomplishments don't quite match this kind of money. Maria had already won a GS by Amanda's age.

Good on her for getting, it, though. I'll never begrudge someone a fairly-earned profit.

Re: Amanda Anisimova signs enormous Nike deal

She has missed her chance to breakthrough after RG with injury and personal issue. Don't think she can achieve as much as another Russian-American.
