    from what I have heard is that venus is not sponsored by reebok anymore and hasn't been for a while. I would say she's just getting free swag from Serena since she's with nike.

    Well she wore reebok in Warsaw and Rome, but she usually likes a new outfit for the majors. The outfit looked a lot like the one Mauresmo has for the French, so Vee doesn't want something similar to someone else. She's been practicing in Nike.

    I'm sorry, I didn't mean she switched from Reebok to Nike. My wife has a friend who reps for Reebok and she said Venus hasn't been "sponsored" by Reebok for, I think, a few years now but continues to wear their stuff. I'm sure she gets it for free but isn't "paid" to wear it anymore.

    But I'm sure she got some swag from Serena since she is still sponsored by Nike (for now).
