I'm sure it's just a sponsorship (providing clothes and accessories) and not an endorsement where they're paying him (unless he has some "big" result and gets a bonus).

But, would DY sporting Lotto really impact sales among African-American tennis players in any sort of significant way? I guess it can't hurt to find out.
