Just watching the SEO. It appears that Youzhny is no longer wearing Adidas clothing, though still Adidas shoes. Could it be LoS? It looks like the design and would make sense in terms of the fact that hes still using other shoes.

Found out myself after a close up of him. It is LoS. Interesting how they have managed to sign some rather big names

Im afraid I cant find any pictures right now, but Ill sure there will be plenty soon. But there is no doubt that he played in LoS clothing. Wonder if Murray has cost Adidas their entire budget

Wonder if Murray has cost Adidas their entire budgetThat's how it works. Companies allocate a certain amount for endorsements. If signing a certain pro means paying him a lot then those lower on the ladder do not get their contracts renewed. Signing Murray meant that Bagdhatis, Querrey, Youzhny, the Bryans, etc, did not get their contracts renewed when they ended. Same thing happened when HEAD signed Djokovic, lower ranked players like Karlovic, Clement, Monfils, to name a few, also did not have their contracts renewed. It's a business, it's a matter of who gives you more bang for your buck. I doubt many people bought HEAD racquets just because Clement used one and I doubt many people bought Adidas kits just because Youzhny wore them--even though they'd probably kill to be able to hit a backhand like him. I do wonder though if paying a whiny, petulent brat like Murray, despite his high ranking, gives all that much bang for the buck. I say this having an Adidas deal myself.

^^ I actually thought Youzhny was doing pretty good for Adidas.

Wow, now that doesn't happen often. He looks good in Adidas and that LOS stuff is ugly. Maybe they realised that Youzhny's a decent player.

Not sure he cares much, he'll take the money, and the free clothes...

I wonder if LOS couldn't come up with the $$$ they promised and thus reneged on the contract. Or maybe it was a short term thing. Anyone have any intel?

It's not only Youzhny. During doubles Robredo was wearing Dunlop clothes, not LoS. Stupid Tacchini ...
