Yeah, seems like a strange time to split. It's right before a slam, with not much time for marketing, promotion etc.

Good for him. Those outfits were awful.

Yeah I'm happy too. Miss the days when he use to rock the Adidas gear.

Novak Djokovic Parts Ways With Sergio Tacchini
 
Novak Djokovic, the world’s best male tennis player, will end his two-year cooperation with Italian clothing brand Sergio Tacchini International, the company said.

“It has been mutually and amicably decided that, as of the 2012 Roland Garros Grand Slam, Novak Djokovic will no longer be the brand ambassador,” the company said in an e-mailed statement today.

Djokovic is the reigning Wimbledon, U.S. Open and Australian Open champion. He rose to the top spot of the men’s tennis rankings last July after he won his first Wimbledon title.

so who will have ND ? Nike or Adidas or another Clothing Sponsor?

strange period, but rumors said the 2012 hasn been paid yet so they just sold the contract to Lacoste till the end of the year (rumors from RG).

Lazarus 05-22-2012 06:22 AM

So, it was much sooner than anyone here would have anticipated... I vote for Nike, but somehow at this point - to me - it doesn't seem much possible. There was a word, before he went to ST, that he was very near to close the deal with K-Swiss. So, it could be just a small hint.

Nostradamus 05-22-2012 06:30 AM

where is the loyalty in this world ? pretty soon, Nike will own every athlete

dimeaxe 05-22-2012 06:39 AM

Yeah, it's confirmed he signed with UNIQLO.

CMM 05-22-2012 06:40 AM

Don't know if this is reliable but...

Novak Djokovic's new clothing sponsor is the japanese brand Uniqlo, which used to work with Nishikori and Olympic athletes in Japan.

The presentation will be held tomorrow in Paris and he plans to wear the full equipment in his first match in Roland Garros.

Apparently, it's not Nike after all, Japanese UNIQLO offered him a big deal and he'll sing with then on Wednesday at a ceremony in Paris.

SikSerb 05-22-2012 06:56 AM

Uniqlo? Just looked up some of there gear. Nothing special.

TennisLovaLova 05-22-2012 07:04 AM

Uniqlo it is...

The next few days here are going to be epically amusing.

TennisLovaLova 05-22-2012 07:08 AM

Uniqlo is nice but quite expensive imo
at least he'll represent a brand 90% dedicated to him (+ Nishikori)
