Roddick & Rolex
 
Friend of mine told me Roddick signed a deal with Rolex . I collect vintage rolexs . He made an outstanding choice !

What a terrible move for Rolex. Any Rolex fans who know anything about tennis may be turned off...

I can see Edberg or Henman with Rolex but Roddick?

iscottius 03-16-2004 08:08 PM

Roddick should be sponsoring a swatch or some other Gen ex teen idol nonsense

@wright 03-16-2004 08:10 PM

I think Roddick is a better Tag Heuer endorser, young and hip. Federer on the other hand, is perfect for Rolex with his quiet elegance. Henman would also be a good member for team Rolex.

I assume you're talking about on court elegance here right? Last time I checked the ponytail was a very close second to the earing as a no no. Remember the cowboy hat in Houston?

Also, the Rolex culture is all about the 'tool watch' idea. If you want 'quiet elegance' you go for Patek or Audemart not Rolex...

Movado!! Sampras..

Yeah, I am familiar with the "tool watch" image, but the truth is in their tennis ads it is much more about tradition and class, they always show wimbledon. I guess Roddick is a tool though, so he should have a tool watch! It's not like Federer has a mullet, and he has been in Rolex ads, so I guess they are ok with the ponytail.

I remember that Rolex also sponsered Jim Courier
in the early ninties... was he that ellegant player? :roll:

Roddick is more like Timex type of a guy.

VJH 04-01-2004 12:23 PM

Pete actually represented Rado.....

Verbal_Kint 04-05-2004 04:25 AM

Pete represented/s Movado. 100 % sure.

It seems the guy scored an endorsement indeed. Anyone here noticed how fast he put his watch on after his Miami win? After that he kept playing with his cap so that the watch would be on the picture. It was definitely a jubilee bracelet but I didn't get to see the dial.

@wright 04-05-2004 07:30 PM

I noticed that too David. As soon as Coria quit, the datejust jumped on the wrist and Andy's hat didn't go untouched. Why Rolex would want to sponsor someone who behaves the way he does on court is beyond me. They should have stuck with Federer, he's a great ambassador for the sport and the watch maker.

Roddick's no Rolex guy. Shouldn't Rolex have chosen a "class act?"

dantyem108 04-23-2004 06:13 PM

Who cares, let the company do whatever they want. Although, personally, I would have chosen someone like Michael Chang.

perfmode 04-24-2004 06:29 AM

Rolex? Roddick is a G-Shock kinda guy.

ProStaffTour90 04-24-2004 11:39 AM

Surely you'd think they would pick a player who appeals to the type of people that can actually afford Rolex's, not some spoilt Yank that looks as if he's been taken out of a boy band.

Phinnutz 04-25-2004 06:42 AM

Maybe it's a paint job :)

Kirko 04-26-2004 02:58 PM

I thougth he would have picked a Daytona or the Aniversary "green" Sub. not an ordinary Date Just.
