Hewitt looks like a Yonex billboard

I mean, the hat, the shirt, the shorts, the racquet, the socks, the wristband, the shoes, damn. I know that's who he's sponsored by, but come on, He could change it up and throw a swoosh in there somewhere, no?

No, no he couldn't. He's being paid handsomely to wear Yonex and wearing a Swoosh would surely violate his contract.

Haven't you noticed that Nalbandian looks like a Yonex billboard too? Debra's right, they're being paid, nothing you can do about it.

Re: Hewitt looks like a Yonex billboard

HELLO!? This is like every tennis player!

This is every tennis player. Look across the net to Nadal, Nike headband, Nike shirt, Nike capris, Nike shoes, Nike Socks.Remember last year when Nike was challenging the ATP on account of Adidas getting away with the three stripes; putting the giant Nike Logos all over Nadal's shirt lol.

Is the concept of sponsorship foreign to you?

Re: Hewitt looks like a Yonex billboard

This is from last year...taking the words out of your mouth.

Nike using Nadal as logo billboard
Spanish star's talent overshadowed by violation of clothes rules


Rome (pte/May 9, 2005/13:59) - Despite Rafael Nadal's astounding record of 21 matches won from 22 played, his rank of number two in world tennis, and his Rome Masters win on Saturday, the media seems more interested in what he's wearing than in his talent.

Nike, Nadal's clothing provider, has had him wearing huge Nike emblems - the tick-like logo - on court over the last week. But the dimensions of the logo violate the on-court rules: the emblem measures about six inches in width, whereas the legal size is four square inches maximum (three inches at Grand Slams).

But Nike claims that Adidas' logo - three stripes - also violate the rules. According to the ATP's rulebook: 'Clothing designs will not be interpreted as manufacturer's logos and such can be incorporated into the clothing design.'

Nike is arguing that the Adidas' design, because it is a registered trademark, is a logo, thus also demanding that Nike be granted permission to use its own large logos.

Bill Babcock of the International Tennis Federation said: "The situation clearly needs addressing, and it is being addressed by us, the ATP, the WTA and the Grand Slams."

Whatever the outcome, the 18-year-old Nadal still remains an astounding tennis talent.
