    I'm quite sure Adidas won't be best pleased! :)

    What a brooooooo, that pumps me up. Perhaps Quiksilver will take this opportunity to grab Verdasco in the future. So far, Phillipuosas is the only pro I've ever seen wear Quiksilver match gear.

    I wonder what shirt he's wearing? would be funny if that too was a quiksilver shirt.

    And yeah, i wouldn't mind if he switched to quiksilver!

    Its not a big deal, he is sponsored by Adiads on court and for a few other things. Quicksilver arnt seen as much of a tennis brand, this is fine and not a breach

    I don't think players' contracts require them to wear the brand wherever they go. He appears not to be on the court in this instance.

    You're right, they don't extend to everywhere. But they do to the court (obviously) and then also any interview or advertisement that is tennis related. For example a post match interview, yes, but a chat show, no. Each players is slightly different but it's always something like that.

    Maybe Adidas owns Quicksilver? If it doesn't then I suggest that they do buy a surf brand as it makes good business sense: caps, shorts, tees and footwear. This is Adidas' core business as well.

    He's going to be fined $5k just for wearing a hat thats probably only $20, which no one noticed during the interview, cept for the people who payed really close attention during the interview, the person who made this post and the people who saw this post

    He looks like a bum in that photo. No offense Verdasco, straight from the shores of Venice beach.

    His bottom teeth are pretty rough! :shock:

    Maybe he should get them fixed because it will only make him even more good looking. :)

    He's going for the chill look. Have you ever watched Verdasco's No Strings on Tennis Channel? His drawers are full of surfer company/west coast clothes like Hollister, etc. So that's his look. Can you blame the guy though? You can't walk around looking super clean all the time. Sometimes you just wanna look and be comfortable...

    I think it was just an accident. At our level, a contract with any clothing company seems like the world. These guys would have been sponsored since they were early teens and most simply just do not see the value of it. I think he would be allowed to wear Quiksilver away from tennis, this was just an oversight and bimbo moment.

    Pretty sure it will just be a pink shirt with an Adidas logo on it, adidas does not change much at all

    Odd. The top pros are pretty well-schooled by handlers. This was an unforced error.

    Fernando Adidasco > Fernando Errdasco.

    When away from the court like the latest pic he is not contracted to wear Adidas. Also, there is no way Adidas would drop him so he can get away with this

    When away from the court? You might not be aware that there are clauses in most pro apparel contracts about being photographed in their stuff and not in a competitor's stuff. Maybe Quicksilver falls through the cracks. Maybe that's what you meant.

    Now, I'm not sure where this pic is from....maybe it's just a friendly...a candid or whatever.

    The pic is from Verdasco's own twitter and was taken at a museum in Washington today as he has a day off.

    LOL!

    I just recieved this message on twitter from Verdasco, this is no joke:

    "Can u make me the favor to change that pic? It just cause i have the quicksilver cap and i dnt want to have problems with Adidas! Thx a lot!"


    I had the pic in the OP of this thread as my avatar on twitter, and i've changed it now.

    Pretty weird, I don't get why Verdasco is even wearing the cap in the first place. :confused:

    I can take a screen shot if no one believes me.

    Yeah, and then he sees all the people, like Rovex, on the boards talking sh*t about him being a, "mental midget". Not a very good idea:-?

    Not happy with the racquet(option 2) obviously.
    Apparently it's more in his head or Mardy Fish played too good.

    It is never really clear as he has officially signed with Dunlop.
    Why does he not have a Dunlop stencil at least?
