Watch for a big infusion of Lacoste this year and maybe a little more variety. The company recently announced that thirteen new players are joining the team. ATP players new to the brand include: Dudi Sela (ISR), Julien Benneteau (FRA), Thierry Ascione (FRA), Gaston Gaugio (ARG), Federico del Bonis (ARG), Jesse Huta Galung (NL), Milos Raonic (CAN), David Souto (VEN) and Julien Obry (FRA). New WTA players include: Aleksandra Woziak (CAN), Vera Dusevina (RUS), Yaroslava Shedova (KAZ) and Mallory Cecil (USA). These players will join Andy Roddick (USA), Stanislas Wawrinka (SWI), Sam Stosur (AUS) and Dominika Cibulkova (SLO), who already wear the brand on and off court when "working." I've also seen Vania King (USA) and Gisela Dulko (ARG) wearing the croc.

I know a couple of these people but are there any that could make a big impact for the franchise?

I'm not sure they should be signing so many players when they should be focusing on improving their collection IMHO.

Still dislike the Djokovic apparel every time I see it, been waiting for it to grow on me but nah...

IMHO...

Djokovic is with Sergio Tachini

Insteresting, Soutto leaving Nike for Lacoste ... I wonder if Babolat had anything to do with it, being Babolat and Lacoste both french brands.

LOL! Thanks for the correction. I had just finished watching a clip on the ATP site and hated his outfit even more. I then hopped on to TT and the first new post I saw was in this thread!

Ddidn't read the title clearly, oops!

Well Sela is 24, so I donīt if I agree on the fact that heīs over the hill - the otherīs might be close. Anyway, not huge signings in my opinion. They could still use some blockbusters besides from Roddick and Wawrinka

Not great players, but all of them are marketable in their countries and that's what matters.

They could sign the entire Pro tour. If they don't drop the PRICE significantly,,,it won't sell........

...and Sela!

Sela isn't over the hill, I'm pretty sure making it to the fourth round of Wimbledon constitutes being a very good player, and still being in impecable shape.

David Souto was as high as 10th in the world in the junior ranking, he is only 17yo and just have played a few ATP tournaments, right now is on the 600 something in the ATP ranking, I wouldn't say he is not a great player, at least not just yet.

I think this was a good move by Lacoste, just trying to get their name out in the market.

$55 for their trucker hat.


it's so disgustingly overpriced that it's laughable.
