Logos on clothes at Slams given OK

LONDON (AP) -- Tennis authorities and sporting goods companies agreed Wednesday on the size of logos on players' clothing at the four Grand Slams.

An 8-square-inch patch can be used on sleeves by manufacturers, the International Tennis Federation and the Grand Slam Committee said. The written and nonwritten identification cannot exceed half the space. Identification on other parts of a garment will continue to be confined to 4 square inches.

The agreement, called the "Dress Rule" by the ITF, took effect Wednesday and will be enforced at all ITF tournaments, including the four Grand Slams.

In June, German sportswear manufacturer Adidas won a temporary court ruling to allow three stripes to run down the side of its clothing at Wimbledon. Adidas argued the stripes are not the standard logo. It said the official logo is the "performance logo" depicting three stripes arranged in a pyramid with Adidas written underneath.

Nike and Pumaalso were involved in Wednesday's agreement, the ITF said.
