Nike must be kicking themselves for dropping Robby!

One of (if not the) hottest player(s) this summer. They dropped him earlier this year, from what I can understand.

Instead of the check, I'm seeing a lot of the funny little X... which I've learned it like Under Armor or something like that.

Oh well... way to drop the ball Nike

Nike probably could stand to gain the likes of Ginepri, but Nike will be alright. LOL!!!!!

And Mary Pierce as well. I don't know if they actually dropped Mary (it wouldn't surprise me) but she's had a great year in the Slams and lots of coverage. Robby's wearing the same brand as Martina Navratilova. I'm not sure what it's called though.

Re: Nike must be kicking themselves for dropping Robby!

Actually, the company that should be kicking itself is American Express, given that about the only American male player who did NOT have any mojo at the US Open was Andy.



C'mon, Lleyton!

Re: Nike must be kicking themselves for dropping Robby!

nike dropped a lot of players this year. makes you wonder if it's part of some strategy.

considering they drop these players that are great to sponsor and chose to keep the contracts of the coaches instead? weird

Re: Nike must be kicking themselves for dropping Robby!

Dunlop and Citizen must also be saying 'Doh!' after cancelling their contracts with James Blake.

All the Andy Roddick commericals these last two weeks must have AE and Lexus seeing red.

Makes me think these Advertising/Marketing people are mostly incompetent. Like Agassi has practically booked his place in the final yet I haven't seen any of his commercials during this slam.
