Stop saying silly, unfounded shit like this. Coco Gauff was the biggest news in Wimbledon and saturated media tennis coverage for months and will be raking in a shit-load of money loooong before she turns 20, and she doesn't have any "white privilege". Justine Henin is a legend of the game who is probably the 2nd most successful player of the Serena era and her "white privilege" didn't exactly rocket her to superstar earning status. Venus at 17/18 years old signed the biggest apparel contract in tennis at the time, exceeding Sampras and Agassi and she didn't have "white privilege". Why are some of you so fucking obsessed with race?I don't get how can people deny white privilege which is the clear case here. Other girls had to win big to achieve such contracts, even sharapova had to get some slam wins but i am sure nike must have clauses of winning some slams to pay such money
Skinny and Blonde vs. Husky and Brunette. We all know what happens.Honestly that’s a bit of a slap in the face to Bianca... She’s the only current teenage slam champ, and the first one for quite some time... And it’s Anisimova that gets this deal... I don’t get it...
Honestly, Naomi should feel slighted with this as well...
-That's actually both wrong and right. Because it IS NOT just about how you look. Looks get you in the door, but staying in the room is determined on WHAT YOU'VE DONE.
If it were only on looks, Fanny Stollar would be making millions per insta post.........
But Yastremska has the titles and on her day, can blow anyone off court. So there is no reason it would surprise me. I don't see anything in Anisimova's game that looks better other than her strokes looking "prettier".I would. So far Amanda has better achievements in terms of Slam results and ranking while being younger. And she now has one of the best coaches.
Interesting development for Amanda. Lot of pressure to heap on her too. We'll see how she copes.
In terms of the detail let's bear in mind those articles don't really say very much. Australian Yahoo quotes 100 million (Australian dollars) and the original in the NY Post says USD 70 million - that is supposedly the total value of Sharapova's multi-year deal which is ending. It doesn't actually say how much money Amanda is getting, how many years the contract runs or whether there are performance clauses within it.
So basically we know nothing except she's now presumably rich. :shrug:
Nike would never offer such a deal to someone from Ukraine, get real :lol:But Yastremska has the titles and on her day, can blow anyone off court. So there is no reason it would surprise me. I don't see anything in Anisimova's game that looks better other than her strokes looking "prettier".
I m watching it since 2008 but i know maria got deals after wimbledon win unlike this girl who has yet to win a big title which she can do infuture. She will only get this money when she wins something big. U brought my fave called her ugly indirectly, but my fave remains unbothered if u wanted to drag her and i have receipts if u want. Nike is already paying her 8 figure actually buddy. And countless other sponsors which will increase by olympics. So dont try to drag my fave again.<img src="https://www.tennisforum.com/images/smilies/laugh.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Laugh Out Loud" class="inlineimg" /> naomifandeeep probably didnt start watching tennis until 2018
That made her a global star. Wimbledon 2004. Amanda is still unknown and there is no gurantee she will win slams. Though she is capable. Nike must have some clauses which include slams and rankings to pay such money. Right now representing america and her privilege landed her this deal. No 2 ways about it. Poc have to achieve big and slams to get such massive deals.
Someone should tell the WTA, NBA and many coorporations (including NIKE) that bend over to the Chinese, because that is where the money is. Still USA is a weird market since Americans care more about winning rather than the level of the sport or looking good. The market fell during the big3 era (only one in the world) because Americans suck and were irrelevant.A lot of you are ignoring the fact that Nike desperately wants a new star from the United States. That’s where the money is like it or not. Amanda is probably their best bet. Kenin has ZERO star power no matter what she might win. Bellis is injured with a questionable future. Sloane and Maddie are inconsistent. Riske is not young. Collins is a no. Who’s left? Jennifer Brady?
Which U.S. player would you bet on if you were Nike?
Oh and I’m sure they will lure CoCo to Nike at some point. As someone already pointed out they hope that’s their new Serena and Sharapova. Lol!!!
