David Ferrer clothing sponsor
 
Can someone tell me who sponsors David Ferrer's clothing? I see his cloths say Bovet. I looked that up and it says it's a watch company. Can someone help me out here a little?

Thanks,

It's lotto. They started in this bussiness in 1973.

I think Lotto makes good lucking stuff, but it is very hard to find in the US.

TW has the Lotto. I think Lotto has the best looking clothing line this season.

LOL...Bovet is only one of Ferrer's sponsors and pays him to sew their patch on his Lotto shirts. Lotto is an Italian company and does great business in Europe, particularly in soccer. They tried to expand their tennis marketing with a strong tie-in with the ATP but with limited success. Soderling's lingering illness has also made them a bit more invisible.

They have also had some issues with distributors in the states.........Lotto Soccer easy to find but the tennis stuff not so......some of the smaller shops have had many issues getting stock of the shoes and outfits.

The new shoes have been in high demand but Lotto VERRRRY slow in getting stock to the shops.

The new shoes are awesome by the way. The fit is like the old Futura Aleta and Futura Pro that I wore in the 90's.

No, it's not Lotto. It's C'mon- the new clothing line by Lleyton Hewitt.

:lol:

TW united States has very limited Lotto line compared with TW Europe. I asked TW US to expand the line more as it is nice looking. In terms of tennis shoes Lotto raptors are very good.

Not a criticism but I'm a little surprised the O.P, as someone with over 1,000 posts to his name on a forum of tennis followers, did not know what brand of gear Ferrer was wearing. I just thought LOTTO had *enough* of a brand profile and cut-through with most tennis geeks, especially those who contribute to these forums. :-)

On the other hand, I always wondered who or what the heck Bovet was, the same way I always wondered what Lendl's old "S.Oliver" sleeve patches were...

(I actually thought Bovet was some kind of beef stock like Bovril lol)

Until recently, Murray faced a conundrum every changeover...drink the bottled water provided by the tourney or help hype his tagged sponsor, Highland Springs, by swigging their stuff. I've noticed since AO'13 he doesn't wear their patch.

Not to mention the fact that TW has this whole page:
http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/playersATP.html
And it is easily accessible form the TW front page (it's labeled 'APT Player Gear').

Man, this is the crazy truth... He first started wearing the new Raptor IV shoe back at the 2012 WTF and that colorway (although super slick looking) never even became available. TW finally got the yellow/white and the white/blue pretty recently (in the last 30 days even?) but I'm hoping that the black ones appear at some point soon.

The Texas rep for Lotto (same guy is also Volkl) has been running around doing his best keep shops happy with delays.........does great selling the product but then can't provide stock......

That's gotta be a nightmare of a job. I guess it could be worse... He could be the UNIQLO clothing rep too!
