That’s payback from Dani. Lol


jane Says:

i’ve seen a lot of bad christmas sweaters, but man…this has to be one of the worst! andy looks thrilled. :)


Wog Boy Says:

Andy looks like a Grinch, just not as green:)


Yolita Says:

I love Andy’s sense of humour… That facial expression with that tweet. Too funny. :) I hope he finds his mojo in 2015.


jane Says:

margot, the DA, and other andy fans here, bodo did an analysis/forecast for andy’s 2015 – so in case you missed it, here’s the link:

RZ Says:

Love Andy and his sarcastic sense of humor!


the DA Says:

@Jane – Thanks. I caught that when it came out. Bodo wasn’t as negative as he has often been concerning Andy.

What’s up with this site concerning tennis news? A few announcements were made today that were rather newsworthy – Delpo, Muzz? Hello?


jane Says:

yeah I thought bodo was fair this time too. as for your other comment, don’t some tournaments start next week too? I hope we get threads/previews soon. but yes, andy with a new clothing sponsor and cilic officially pulling out of brisbane. what’s the news with delpo?


jane Says:

oops, just saw on the other thread: now cilic AND delpo are both out of events next week.


Wog Boy Says:

I guess it is eaisier to accept pay cut from the new clothing company rather than from one you are already with (call it pride, ego or whatever), his Adidas contract was very lucrative but Adidas was not ready to give him same money ones five year contract ended this year.


jane Says:

adidas is also not that nice; andy’s new kit looks nicer imo, so it was a win-win. plus it’s good to be with a unique label. only nole and kei wear uniqlo and andy wears under armour; sloane stephens does too, but not sure about other guys – anyone know?


the DA Says:

@Wog Boy- It’s not a pay cut. He’s getting the same sum for a four year contract which he had for the 5-contract with Adidas. Simple math tells us that’s a better deal.

As for Adidas, their kits were hit & miss (mostly miss). His practice gear often looked better than the slam kits. They also were very poor at marketing- All I saw after Wimbledon was the ‘Wimbledone’ campaign – nothing more.

The deal with Under Armour suits his image: a maverick company which is challenging the big boys. UA is now 2nd to Nike in the USA and has surpassed Adidas. I hope they manage to make signature kits that will stand out.


Margot Says:

@the DA
Two bloomers from Adidas too:
a) pocket gate x 2 and
b) blister gate at AO


Wog Boy Says:

the DA, this is article that made me think it is/was pay cut, if they were wrong than I am too:

the DA Says:

@Wog Boy – That was a speculative article and – as is so often the case with Daily Mail articles – they got it wrong. In the article Dickson even says Andy got $15 million for 5 years with Adidas (wrong, it was $25 million). The new deal is $25 million for 4 years. Where’s the massive pay cut?

@Margot – Yes, how could we forget? The new shorts look a little baggy for my tastes. They might keep the balls in (as it were) but too scruffy, imo.


Margot Says:

@the DA
Don’t like them either, they remind me of those ghaaarrstly yellow shorts that put in an appearance.
I take it you got my double entendre, twas a short reference :)


the DA Says:

@Margot – I got the double entendre (even though getting it ages me ;))


Wog Boy Says:

@the DA, thanks for the clarification, good luck to your man in the New Year.
