Querrey Signs With Adidas

Querrey Signs With Adidas

By Tennis Week

Sam Querrey is six months removed from his high school graduation and 37 spots away from the top 100, but he's already earned his stripes — along with an attractive six-figure signing bonus. The 19-year-old Querrey has signed a four-year clothing contract with adidas that will pay him a reported $250,000 annually plus a six-figure signing bonus and performance bonuses.

Querrey joins the recently-retired Andre Agassi, 2004 Olympic silver medallist Mardy Fish and Taylor Dent as American man on the adidas roster. It is the most lucrative clothing and shoe pact since a teenage Andy Roddick signed on with Reebok in 2000, according to a published report in The SportsBusiness Journal written by Daniel Kaplan.

Roddick was the world's top junior and a U.S. Open junior champion who was widely regarded as a future top 10 player when he signed his Reebok deal. Querrey, whose professional potential may not approach Roddick's, benefited from the shifting fortunes of American players.

"Sam was coming out at a good time with Americans not doing well," Colin Smeeton, a consultant to Querrey's Blue Equity agency, told Kaplan. "With his results and the media spotlight, and with Andre Agassi retiring, and James (Blake) and Andy not doing so well, the spotlight was put on him."

Though he has won just six ATP main draw matches this year, the six-foot-six Querrey wielded his crushing serve to take a set off second-ranked Rafael Nadal in Cincinnati. Querrey blasted by Blake, 6-1, in the first set of their opening-round Indian Wells match in March before bowing, 1-6, 6-1, 6-3. Querrey has claimed three Challenger titles this season at Yuba City, Winnetka and Lubbock.

I was thinking to myself...there are not that many Addias guys left.

Baghdatis, Gonzalez, Djokovic, Verdasco in the top 30. Plus Henman.
