    does anyone know who hewitt's new clothing sponsor is? doesn't look like yonex gear! too bad because for many years hewitt has been the face for yonex's clothing line (well for me anyway).

    so if i am right and it isn't yonex that means the wawrinka is the only pro wearing yonex clothes, right (since nalby switched over to topper last year)?

    As far as I remember he has his own line of clothes since last year, that's why you see that "C'mon" on the shirt.

    Utterly heinous clothing he was wearing the other night. It reminds me of early 90s junk clothing by Prince.

    That is correct, he now has his own line of clothing which he wore the other night.

    thanks. i thought there had to be someone else. it just didn't seem like they'd only have one player. are there any women pros still wearing the yonex ladies' line? i haven't seen anyone in it since dementieva retired.

    back on topic, i thought i saw "c'mon" on hewitt's shirt somewhere so i kinda thought that he might have been his own stuff.

    should we begin with the speculation of "did yonex drop him or did he drop yonex?" lol :)

    Besides Baltacha, these others are not very known players. Yonex has to get more popular players. Adidas and Nike are dominating but brands like Asics are getting some popular and up coming players and Lotto and Fila always have their share.

    I agree, that list is horrible and is not to help Yonex clothing sales in the US at least. I am shocked how many people have gone to Lotto this year, they have really gotten a good group recently.

    If you think that list is horrible, have you you seen the latest line, awful. I liked the lines they had last year, but this first one looks terrible.
