A lot of fashion & small brands sponsoring players
 
With the addition of H&M and already UniQlo, I'm starting to notice more and more fashion and fitness brands starting to sponsor 1 or 2 players. I see Lisa Raymond is now with Eliza Audley. Lululemon, Lorna Jane, Travis Mathew, Lilja, Robey, Gunn, Jn Joy and Casall are all brands that are now sponsoring players.

Interesting trend...who's next?

Seems odd, perhaps the ladies will buy, but what guys want H&M, they should stick to sports brands, especially when Uniqlo isn't going to sell the sports stuff, they want you to buy there cheap polos, etc., no thanks.

I do not think that Lululemon is actually sponsoring the players that are wearing it. They do no form of brand advertising and also they say their core product and value is yoga.

I love Lululemon, have "store" in my closet according to my husband and anytime I mention in the store that they need more tennis apparel the response I get is that they are a yoga store.

Casey Dellacqua is actually being sponsored by Lululemon.

She discusses is in her twitter feed...

Costco/Kirkland is going to come out with line.

Casey Dellacqua may be an elite ambassador for Lululemon but they are not sponsoring her and they are not paying her to wear their clothes. Says so right on their website.

I always thought Hugo Boss would be a good fit for tennis.

seems like Hugo Boss sticks with golf players...but they would be a nice fit for tennis

Great to see other brands coming in and hopefully with some interesting design. Tennis fashion needs some new blood.
