    When the pros (especially the women) take the court with those obviously quickly attached logos on their shirts, what kind of deals are those? Do they sign up in the tunnel? The night before a televised match? Or what?

    In front of my computer, obviously
    It varies, but yes, you can get a couple thousand dollars to wear a patch for one match on a televised court. They are usually arranged the day before.

    By the way, Nike signed players are forbidden from wearing any other patches on their clothes. If you see a player wearing nike and any other logo, it means they buy their nike clothes at retail.
