Dan Evans plain clothes

Watching Dan at Rotterdam now he seems to be wearing unbranded clothing; has he lost or left his sponsor?

Yeah it's a pity a guy with his entertaining game not getting paid to wear clothes. I can't imagine it's due to his coke suspension, I mean who cares if he recreates a bit on his own time.

Currently watching him dismantle baseline basher KK.

That is correct. The colours are very good, but the details of the retail shorts are underwhelming. I bought the white crew and socks and will be looking to acquire the Federer original model at some point. Also bought multiple of the Nishi's socks and wristbands, as I found them to match very well with Fed's RG outfit from last year, adding even more retro vibe to it. All in all, could have been better, but nothing to complain about.

And yet you're apparently the one who is looking to 'acquire the Federer original model' having purchased the '...details...underwhelming' retail items...I guess you need to to 'complete the outfit' with your logo-ed socks, wristbands and headbands that you stated you purchased - you also stated that you don't like gratuitous logos.
So, still looking to 'acquire the [reverse engineered] Federer original model', or making do with the retail stuff?

I think he's got almost no wear sponsorship because of coke suspension. No company likes to put your brand on a guy that sniffed coke, no matter if he did for fun.

He was wearing a Japanese brand (Yoxoi) just last year after returning from his suspension. He and Bublik were signed simultaneously. I haven’t seen Bublik in action in 2020 so I don’t know if Yoxoi pulled the plug on both or not. Without good market penetration it’s hard to afford any endorsement deals and they certainly have not set the apparel segment on fire.

The small levels of coke he tested at were perfectly consistent with his story, so the evidence said the dog did indeed eat his homework.

It happens.
The kissing story, followed by a positive urine test (even in a small amount) is a highly improbable scenario, although I suppose not entirely impossible. Gasquet is one of a few professional athletes who have offered similar stories, under similar circumstances.

The evidence in Richard's case ended up being contradictory, which I imagine played a significant role in the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) decision to reinstate him:

- The urine sample taken in Miami tested positive for cocaine metabolites and a small amount of unmetabolized cocaine
- The "B" sample also tested positive for cocaine metabolites
- A subsequent hair test was negative

All of that said, for me, the idea that a professional athlete out all night, drinking alcohol at a night club, making out with some acquaintance, bears absolutely no responsibility for the contamination of his own system...is a tough one.

I think Bublik used at least some parts of Yoxoi early this year.

Always wondered what kind of clothes used non contract players. Do they choose stuff without logo or hide logo? And could they use different brands sets?

Mix and match is definitely allowed as long as any logo displayed is within the size parameters set by the ITF.

A lot of talk went along with Sandgren’s unexpected run but his kit was 100% Letour, a small Aussie brand on the rise. If they are smart they will use their unexpected exposure to gain market share.

It won't happen with someone like Sandgren, who is really the wrong person to wear anyone's brand.

Do we really have to revisit his checkered past off the court? The story is so old. I don’t condone his opinions expressed years ago and don’t want to revisit all the angst created by stuff he said back in 2014-16. Let’s #MoveOn.

It is not when he expressed his views that is the problem, but the views themselves. He hasn't changed and I don't think that I would support someone like him or the things he endorses (as merch or otherwise). His tennys is not even interesting.

How do you know he hasn’t changed? Have you had a chat with him? Please enlighten us if you have! If you haven’t that evidence, STFU!

Tom, that is so uncharacteristic of you. No, I haven't spoken to him, but as someone who is stubborn in his own right I know how difficult people change. Unfortunately I am a believer in the redemption that takes a lot longer than the time it took to ruin one's reputation, so, he has to prove that he has changed. I don't mind the player, but I wouldn't support his endorsements and that is what I said when I said that he is a difficult sell, if I have to be convinced to support him. I am sure that plenty of people think that he is A OK. I don't mind that and certainly hope that you are right.

Thank you for a reasonable response this time.

I certainly wouldn’t want to be judged for the rest of my life on my behavior in my mid-20s. People evolve at their own rates and he’s gone through rites of passage with sudden fame I cannot even imagine. Twitter didn’t happen until I was nearly 60!

Let’s let it rest. If he dives into the gutter again, so be it; if not, there’s a lot of celebrities out there that have done far worse than express some twisted views from their very young days.

As to the brand he wears, they’ve got a few designs that are appealing and their prices aren’t gouged by the cost of supporting the popular gang at the top. If it was available in the US, I might give them a shot for some shirts with sleeves or some socks, not to endorse Sandgren but to try something reasonably priced.

In the spirit of moving on, here's a great interview Sandgren did with Jon Wertheim:


Thankfully, it's very much free of wowserism and sanctimonious judgment.

Wealth isn’t the issue there...it’s about the time he would waste hunting down a pair or two of his preferred shoes after an unexpected run to 3R from AO qualies.
Sponsor's contracts are about money. So wealth is playing it's role. I think he got a big amount of spare adidas shoes.

Bublik is still wearing Yoxoi. Something else must of happened with Dan...maybe he wanted more money.

Any word on who Dan Evans signed with? Or will he still be without a clothing brand in Dubai. His opening match is with Fognini I think. Hoping to see him wearing a better brand this time around.
 
Would love to see him go down the same route as Tennys Sandgren and endorse/work with a small brand like Letour (Australian) to help break them into the mainstream tennis market.

I don't think Dan Evans is going to do anything for a brand that is trying to break into the mainstream market. He doesn't even regularly post on social media.

Glad that there are such people (not involved in all this social media craziness). For getting a contract tennis player should get some good sports results not to post smth on social media.
