Falcon Flies … To Sergio Tacchini

Posted by gauloises1 on November 24, 2009

Kind of old news (sorry) but Novak Djokovic has confirmed he is leaving the Adidas stable and has signed a ten-year deal with Sergio Tacchini. Reportedly, he’ll be getting 3-and-quite-a-bit million dollars a year, as opposed to Murray’s four-and-a-bit million a year for five years with Adidas.

I’m curious as to the thinking behind this; were Adidas unwilling to meet Nole’s financial expectations, or did he and his people feel it was better to be a big fish in a little pond than risk being demoted to no. 2 face-of-the-brand behind Murray? (Perhaps before Nole’s recent run of great results?)

Tacchini seems rather a random choice when you look at the other current players they represent. But apparently they used to clothe Sampras and McEnroe. And hey, at least we might get to see Nole in something like this:

And yes, this post was basically an excuse for this picture.

    blurgh.
