    According to TWE, there have been rumours that the vibrant Frenchman will not be wearing Nike clothing next time he plays. Anyone have more news on this matter?

    Seems a random time why this rumour would pop up now if it's not true.

    Adidas will snap him up but he is still with Nike.

    I thought about Lacoste. But Adidas would be better.

    Adidas has more sleeveless shirts. I've never seen him wear anything with sleeves.

    To be honest, whoever he switches to i doubt he'll be wearing sleeveless shirts.

    This would be great for The Lacoste brand if they can design a line bright and vibrant enough for him, but only if they release it to the public.

    Maybe he can endorse a line of clothing that looks great for one match but fades and doesn't fit too well for the next match.

    When is he going to end his relationship with standing too far back and playing too passively?

    Why thank you for confirming. Didn't expect this but a great coup for K-swiss.

    very well thanks, been doing some travelling so not been on the forum for a while, did you see the Tsonga shoe test thread in IW, that's the new shoe I mentioned before, the info on the thread was wrong though, i hear that verdasco had already tested them, they are very cool from what I saw and Tsonga seemed really happy with them when he was hitting with monfils

    i find it really sad that players are signing with kswiss
    the clothes they make are truely disgusting and their shoes are terrible
    idk why players are signing with them just for a tiny little bit of extra cash i know forsure that nike is paying monfils alot
    since he's the highest freshman wearing nike right now and he's in the top 20

    agrees 100%- kswiss stuff is nasty as hell in my opinion as well. but, money talks. if it is a marginal amount of money i def stay with nike if i were him. however, if its a significant diff maybe k swiss.

    Wow this sucks... looks like Nike is gonna make Del potro stick with the sleeveless since Monfils is gone. I have always seen Monfils as a Nike or nothing kind-of-guy (Ala... Federer, Nadal, Moya, Sampras)

    This could be a very James Blake like move... possibly disastrous lol

    Oh well....

    Prime Monfils is gone, so did Nike.

    They did the same with Blake, Hewitt among others.
    Nike are really a bunch of *******s. When a player ranking goes down they don't renew.

    Everytime I hear K-Swiss I think of those dirty old short and thick white shoes that are worn by high school students in a public school. K-Swiss is grotesque with their stripes and shield logos.

    The stripes on all their clothes are so random and go in completely random directions.

    I agree. I'm all for the underdog/smaller companies but K-Swiss just plain sucks. I hope he stays with Nike or goes with a company like Under Armor that makes something halfway decent.
