    did anyone notice that youzny was wearing adidas clothes in his semi final against roddick?
    But he was still using fila shoes!
    it's quite weird to change sponsorship during a tournament!!

    Someone mentioned that sponsors will do a 1 day contract because a player is on tv? May be this is the case for Youzhny....

    If I were in a US Open semi and adidas, or whoever, offered a "one day contract", I'm going to charge them a million dollars.

    Shoes are harder to switch than shorts and a shirt. Also we have no idea if he has a custom orthodic insole, which takes time to make.

    I actually saw him in the Adidas shop here in NYC the day after he lost at the Open. He was loading up on gear and seemed like a VERY, VERY nice guy.

    hmmm...did Adidas see talent that day, or just a small window of opportunity to promote?

    I will be interesting to see if Mikhail continues with Adidas, or more accurately, if Adidas continue with Mikhail.

    That picture is interesting because he has tape over the Fila logo. He might be once of those guys who likes to break his shoes in over a perios of time before weraing them for matches. Obviosly if this was the case he would have had time during the Open.
