Sponsorship Changes for 2023

As per Fed & ’The curse of the ‘qlo‘, I’m going to make the somewhat bold prediction that he will never win a major in Lacoste. (I know right?)

I’m assuming Stan is still with Yonex at least for clothing. He’s mentioned on their site as one of the players wearing the French Open line this year (even though he’s still wearing the AO line).
Stan seems like the kind of guy who'll honor his sponsorship obligations even if he's not making much money from them. Who knows? Maybe he didn't like the newer Yonex styles/colors and decided to stay with the AO line.

Dimitrov to Lacoste is interesting. Although tbh I think he never should have left Adidas.

Hopefully they come up with some better kits for the 2nd half of the year. Pretty bleh stuff so far.

He tried to switch back to head around ~2013 (?). That was a disaster. Adidas still had sir andy Murray at the time he would have still been second fiddle

I'm just surprised because I thought those goofy shirts were exclusive for Med, but both Rinderknech and Grigor are in the same exact kit.

Does look natural on Grigor though
They have the same colors but they are different believe it or not lol. Look at the collar on the other 2. Meds has no buttons

Yeah I thought about mentioning that too.

Caught up too much with the baby fed stuff going to Nike and Wilson when he could have been like Safin (maybe).
He molded his entire career around Federer, copycat to wearing double pairs of socks level (also racquets, strings, powerpads, shoes, etc), even though he always said he didn´t like that comparison. I mean, look at Grigor´s forehand takeback now. I think if he could he´d have twins if he becomes a father.
 
Is Shuai Zhang playing with the Wilson Shift racquet at Eastbourne? I think this is the first pro I have seen play with it in a tournament.
I saw that today as well. I could not get a good enough pic from the video highlights to see any details (16x20 or 18x20) but I agree it looked like the Shift paint.

It is the shift paint, but hers is 16x19

Yeah I saw her IG during Roland Garros and saw she was hitting with the shift.... Curious to know if she actually switched to the Shift or simply a PJ... She previously used a Pro Staff then the Ultra so I assume she might be trying to find a new 'weapon' ?

Alcaraz to Louis Vuitton? Rumors swirling. Tennisnerd said it’s similar to Hugo Boss and Berrettini.

I hope it’s just off court stuff. We will see

Does Venus still have her EleVen line? Saw photos today, plain pink unbranded t-shirt and shorts. Lacoste sneakers. I know she has some deal with them, but think it's for casual wear and not on court?

Not sure if it’s been mentioned Ostapenko was wearing Adidas yesterday?
A lot better than the gaudy own brand stuff she has been knocking up in my opinion.

Look's like Victoria Jiménez Kasintseva changed from the Blade (steam mould) to a Shift given that her Wilson is full white compared to the US open paint job which has blue (very similar to RG) Wonder if its a paint job or retail stock?

their stuff is a bit bold for her style but better than nothing
Signing a contract to be a brand ambassador means BOLD money. And with the season Vondrousova has had, she certainly deserves a higher profile deal!
 
Arthur Fils has been wearing old Asics clothes for the last 2 matches, so I think some bigger contract somewhere else might be awaiting.
