It’s a rare sight in sports to see a top-ranked athlete without a big sponsor.But that is just the unusual situation at the Australian Open, where Simona Halep, the No. 1-ranked woman on the pro tennis circuit, will be playing sans logos this coming week.Last month, Halep announced in a somewhat cryptic Twitter post that her four-year deal with Adidas was coming to an end.According Nike Roshe Run Dam to reports, she and the athletic brand were Nike Air Max Classic BW Donne unable to come Nike Air Max 90 Womens Black to terms on a renewal contract in time to meet Adidas’ 2018 budget. And so far, she has not secured another apparel/footwear sponsor. (Wilson is her partner for rackets and gear.)During a practice session at the Australian Open on Jan. 12, for instance, she sported a burgundy tank top and black shorts with no logos, and a pair of white Adidas sneakers with tiny, almost-nonexistent Three Stripes on the midsole.While this situation is undoubtedly stressful for Halep and disappointing for Adidas, it opens up an excellent opportunity for other brands in the tennis space.The most likely candidate to snap up the Romanian star is Nike. Next to Adidas, it has the biggest pockets and the strongest reputation in the sport, plus it is in need of a new female ambassador. In recent Nike Air Max 90 Uomo years, the Swoosh has focused its marketing Adidas Superstar Femme Bleu dollars around Serena Adidas Superstar Femme Williams (who is not competing in Melbourne) and Maria Sharapova (whose reputation is still in rehab mode).True, it does have Venus Williams on the roster, but securing the 26-year-old Halep would offer a fresh young face around which to build its tennis business for years to come.

Asics is another strong possible partner. The Japanese athletic firm has been showing an increasing willingness to shell out the necessary money to secure buzz-building ambassadors across sport and lifestyle (see, for instance, its recent deal with mega-DJ Steve Aoki).And, most notable, earlier this week, the brand grabbed Novak Djokovic away from Adidas, so it could be in the market for a top-ranked woman to help it gain market share across the board.Washington Wizards point guard Nike Air Presto Dámské John Wall’s days as a sneaker free agent are over. The Nike Air Presto Dames Washington Post Nike Air Max 95 Dam confirmed Sunday that Wall has agreed to a five-year endorsement deal with Adidas, the company he broke ties with in 2015. Terms of the deal, first reported by Yahoo Sports’s Shams Charania, were not immediately available.Following his standout freshman season at Kentucky and before the Wizards selected him No. 1 in the 2010 NBA draft, Wall signed a five-year, $25 million endorsement deal with Reebok. In January 2013, a few months after Reebok released Wall’s third signature shoe, the point guard announced that he was leaving Reebok for its parent company, Adidas.During Wall’s rookie season, rumors swirled that his Reebok shoes contributed to him missing 13 games with foot and knee injuries. Wall also missed the first 33 games of his third season with a knee Asics Gel Lyte iii Femme Bleu injury.

Adidas unveiled two signature shoes for Wall, Nike Roshe Run Womens the J Wall 1 and the J Nike Air Huarache Femme Wall 2. The second hit the shelves on Oct. 31, 2015, one month after Wall’s contract with Adidas expired. The Vertical reported that Wall’s signature shoes with Reebok and Adidas “underperformed at retail,” but Adidas offered him an eight-year, $66 million contract to continue their partnership. Wall rejected the offer.A source told the Vertical at the time that Wall “wanted Harden money,” referencing the 13-year, $200 million deal Adidas offered Houston Rockets star James Harden to convince him to leave Nike in August 2015.A few months after his contract with Adidas expired, Wall fired his agent, Dan Fegan, and replaced him with LeBron James’s childhood friend and agent Rich Paul of Klutch Sports. Given that most of Paul’s clients, including James and Ben Simmons, have shoe deals with Nike, many expected Wall Nike Air Odyssey Womens to follow suit or perhaps sign with Jordan Brand, a Nike subsidiary.Wall has worn Nike and Jordan Brand, as well as Adidas, since his last endorsement deal expired. After the four-time all-star wore a version of his Adidas signature shoes with a floral print pattern during a game in late December, Hoop District’s Neil Dalal reported that Wall would return to the company “in the very near future.”
