Do you think EVERY celebrity gets paid by whatever shoe company they wear. I am sure that Justin B-whatever kid is actually MUCH better promoter than any tennis player for any shoe company....
I didn't think so.
Him being a #1 in tennis and dressed in competitors clothes means little to Adidas.
Just like it did with Murray a few years ago before he joined Adidas and switched between Adidas and Nike as he wanted...
And, he was #4 in the world, more marketable than the current #1...
