    The TV coverage showed Janowicz's personally monogrammed socks several times. They featured a nifty little "JJ" inscription sewn into the socks. I didn't see any Nike branding though, despite him wearing Nike gear and shoes. Do you think his mom's very handy on the sewing machine, or was he so persuasive with Nike that they asked the sock factory to put his initials on his socks?

    Haha I noticed that too. Ever since the tiger woods logo spread over to Rogers rf logo other players have started the self branding trend too.

    No, these socks were made by a Polish company which doesn't exist anymore - much better quality than any Nike, Adidas etc. products unfortunately they couldn't keep up (production/labour costs).

    His Nike gear is several years old- Breathe Cage II shoes and shirt and shorts from like 2010 or before....he's probably not even sponsored

    Well he did have to pay for his custom shoes - big feet.
    The minimum order was 5 pairs IIRC.

    Don't pay attention to Fedace and his trolling.

    It's best just to ignore him.
