I'm not sure how these endorsements have a negative effect on either the player or the sport. Tennis fans have always skewed toward the upper end of the economic scale; that's why Federer endorses Mercedes and not Dodge. The companies involved wouldn't pay the money if they didn't feel they'd gain something from the affiliation. So HOW does Federer endorsing champagne hurt tennis, exactly?
