Another Chinese brand is sponsoring a player
 
A company called 361 Sport is sponsoring WTA player Chia-Jung Chuang

http://www.361sport.com


I think there are now 4 Chinese companies sponsoring players along with Li-Ning, Anta and Erke. Am I missing any?

What is with the obsession with "361" lately. A viral campaign by prince and now this?

Chinese Communist owned tennis racquet company? No doubt they'll be selling racquet designs they stole from Wilson, Babolat, Head, etc....Just like their military does with the United States!
I wonder if they're going to outsource the production to somewhere like North Korea where they can legally chain the workers to the production line, and feed them tree bark and clay.

1st racquet for sale: The Mao Liberator 2000

A 24x30 string pattern on a 23 inch length racquet, 10 pts head heavy and weighing in at 15 ozs.
Designed to keep even the best player from reaching their potential. Because it's not fair that players born with God given talent like Nadal and Federer are allowed to compete against the common man.

Easily one of the funniest things I've read all year.

While everything after the first paragraph is jest, the first paragraph is actually true.

it would be true if they made racquets...but they don't. it's just clothes at the moment

migi 11-01-2010 02:42 PM

Don't forget about Peak :)

A 23 inch racket at 15 oz... Think about how solid that stick must be; density in the mold must be crazy.
The shorter length must give it a VERY manageable swingweight. Mao Liberator is definitely on my demo list.

there is some truth to what he is saying so i dont think he is stupid. it's just he did not do it in a more diplomatic way.

westpac690 11-01-2010 03:32 PM

Eh.... Still more diplomatic than the way Communist China invaded Tibet.

That was totally unnecessary. Plus, your ignorance proves your stupidity.

What's wrong with a Chinese racquet brand entering market? Don't forget that every racquet company has their products manufactured in China.

Seriously, why can't people like you ever think of China without thinking of politics?

babaoh 11-01-2010 05:40 PM

Does Peak sponsor any tennis players?

I love Hong Kong. Especially on a Sunday afternoon when all the Filipinas hit the clubs! I recommend the Big Apple dance club. 10 girls to 1 guy
And Ned Kelly's on the Kowloon side used to have kick butt steaks.
AND to this day I refuse to eat "Chinese food" in the United States because it's garbage compared to real Chinese dishes. Sweet and sour does not make a dish Chinese.

Never said there was anything wrong with a Chinese racquet entering the market. Just stating how they'd do it. And poking a little fun at the Mau-ster. You can't take yourself too seriously, it's not healthy. It'll kill'ya faster than a Great Leap Forward famine.

The only one who's serious is you; you really seem to be the type of person who tries incredibly hard to find every opportunity to bash China.
