They sign the player, not the Roddick "team."

His coach can wear whatever he pleases. Otherwise it'd be like Roddick's coach having to use a Babolat racquet simply because that's the brand Roddick is signed to.

Again, it's not the coach who's on the court playing for millions of people to see; he's not the super-money-making athlete. That's Andy's job.

Dean Goldfine has his own contract with nike, probably because he's part of the USTA high performance coaching program. This is also true of Francisco Montana (who coaches Ginepri and wears nike), Paul Annacone (who coaches Henman and wears nike), and a few others. As for Andy's 'team', Doug Spreen wears LaCoste.

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

Re: why Roddick wear Lacoste and his coach still Nike?

Interesting thread...and most of the better known coaches do, indeed, have thier own contracts with clothing sponsors irrelevant of whom they are working with/for at the particular time.

And I was sure that Darren Cahill had his own contract with Nike. However, at the Agassi match with Alberto Martin, Cahill was wearing the Adidas stripes... anyone know what happened here?

Safin wears Adidas, and I noticed Lundgren switched to Adidas as well, but Safin's old fitness coach (the guy with the goofy lopsided hair) wore Nike until Safin got rid of him.

I'm sure they would provide clothes for the coach. I see that all the time. But if the coach has their own contract (or is part of a high performance coaching program) then they obviously won't be wearing their player's sponsor's clothes.

Mardy Fish for president.

I wasn't paying attention to Cahill during Agassi's last match but I'll look today. When we were at the LA tourney watching Agassi practice, the first time we had seen Andre in Adidas, they were talking about Andre's new Adidas deal. Cahill was talking about his own Nike contract, and how he's not gonna drop that if he's getting paid. For sure Cahill had a contract with Nike, but who knows, maybe Adidas picked him up as well now?
