    I am 100% fully sponsored....

    This year Bancroft gave me 17 Borg Autographs with presses, 10 pair of Fred Perry canvas shoes, Shoe Goo came up the 9 tubes, Addidas was kind enough to send me a red ATP warm up (bottoms only) a third hand ball holder, 1 Ball Saver pressurized ball saver and Fila sent me a pre-worn Borg pinstripe shirt size XS.

    I play number one singles for a small High School in Northern Minnesota called the Monroe Musky's....we have chain nets......true story. You guys don't know how good you got it.....

    LOL! I was just about to come up with something similar to it. Phamaceutical sales?

    Anyhow, I'm with Babolat.

    This year I get:
    3 Racquets, 3 Shoes, 12 Strings, 1 bag, 6 pair socks, 1 warm up, 5 shirts, 4 shorts, 2 caps, 1 briefcase. I'll be getting some stuff from Balle de Match as well in the future. Too bad as I have so much gear from Fila but I'm glad that Babolat is giving clothing now too :)

    got sponsored by prince really easily, i just emailed them on their website, when i applied i was 30 in the uk and they phoned me the next day. asked what bats i wanted 1 week later i got a 12 racquet thermal with 15 bats. pretty similar thing with head.


    fila - i got in at the right time, they just started an incentive to boost the tennis brand and wet round signing woorld ranked players on a sliding scale of sponsordhip depending on ranking. i used to be 600 atp so got quite a good deal. but now i have slumped to oustside the top 1000 but they still renewed my contract

    Yesterday you said 120........

    I buy all my equipment and try and find good deals. You guys have to stop becoming so obsessed with discount/free stuff, tennis really isn't that expensive if you keep it simple and don't become greedy.

    most kids here are sponsored by their parents. unlimited amount of racquets/strings/clothes at any given time. No contract needed.

    i would like to make the point that pro supex rackets are actually quite good. they buy moulds from the major brands and paint them up with their own colours. essentially if you are every in need of a decent cheap racket, try the player's pro supex frames out. i used to have a contract wth them when i was 15, i think i was using the "wilson 6.1" pro supex frame.

    head, 3 racquets, a bag, a stencil, a couple t shirts, and some grips- $300.

    for string, klip- their preffered player thingy, not much of a sponsorship though.

    anyone know a smaller company where i can get a full sponsorship?

    I played some futures and challengers back in the day but didn't do well.

    Where else am I going to keep my Babolat catalogs? :) Remember the cool colorful Prince briefcase things back in the day?

    nSix One 95's mate. Just needed a stick that didn't have any bells and whistles/problems with it. It's a solid racquet.
