It's all about the $$$, man. And I'd hardly accuse a Top 5 player of a 'lack of success'.

I love my girls.

Nike has Federer and Nadal, and I suspect they don't really need Agassi and Hewitt as much anymore.

It won't be through lack of success. He's top 5, been in 2 GS finals in the last year. The TV ratings in Australia were very high for the Australian Open final so he got Nike a lot of exposure during that event. And when you consider players with less success and a lower profile like Carlos Moya, Max Mirnyi and Feliciano Lopez have Nike deals, I don't think that Lleyton's results over the last year would cause them to drop him over those players.

My understanding is not that Nike dropped Hewitt, but that Hewitt didn't want to renew with them.

Maybe he's thinking about wearing toilet paper to matches instead.

In reply to i said he hasn't had bad results, in Tennis terms he hasn't getting beat by Federer in the majority of the big event's, you wouldn't say is really a bad result just bad luck your playing a guy who is awesome, but he hasn't won a GS since 02, and i agree with one of the post's that Hewitt is now playing third string behind Federer and Nadal and maybe the offer Nike put on the table Hewitt might of thought he was worth more, but maybe Nike came back with, well the slams have been drying up if you want more $$$ you need to come up with the big results. I don't think it's a coincidence Him and Agassi are no longer with Nike i feel the $$$ were not right but you can understand Nike with Nadal and Federer in their camp.

Ok, so this thread is just an excuse to mention Nadal is #2 now above Hewitt? Yeah, I think we knew that. Don't worry! We won't be insulted! You don't need to talk in circles, just be direct.

I have to say I absolutely hated that thing around his head. I hope he goes back to wearing the backwards cap soon!

just so you know the general consensu on the gm pages is
fed is god
hewitt is an asshole
nadal is the best thing since sliced bread
roddick is overrated
safin gets too many girls
agassi should retire
henman has bad teeth

every thread will carry undertones of the recurring themes
deal with it .......................... i know the roddick fans have

Gee, what a coincidence that Nimonumz is flooding GM with anti-Hewitt threads just after I disagreed with his/her posts in another thread.



C'mon, Lleyton!

Re: Is Hewitt not with Nike anymore if not why?? lack of sucsess maybe???

can anyone say paranoid? WTF?!?!?!?!?
my thread is not an anti-Hewitt thread i never said he was racist. i pointed out what came from a argentinian newspaper. i think he's more of a languagist or probably feels a little left out. Get the fuck over yourself you think your so fucking important for me to -um attack you through your fave player. dude the world doesnt revolve around you. Hewitt may not be my fave player but i thought it was an interesting tidbit to share. i dont hate Hewitt and the 'is hewitt a racist thread" aint a Hewitt bashing thread. if it were a proper hewitt bashing thread i may have mentioned the blake incident (like another poster said) or rehashed the whole poof statement and not just this. I unlike you dont carry my shit from one thread to another. I disagreed with GWH in the Canas thread but agreed with him in the 15-15 Nadal thread. us adults know that everyone cant agree on everything so we let it go instead of dragging it from the non-tennis thread to the gm thread. then you bring the shit to a thread about his moving away from Nike that isnt even mine?? WTF?!

ah whatever.
