Julia Goerges

Thanks to Tony for sharing his experience:

I enjoyed meeting German tennis star Julia Goerges at the 1st Anniversary celebration for Bank of the West in Indian Wells, CA. She was an absolute pleasure, signing autographs and taking photos with everyone before it was back to training at the BNP Paribas Open. I’m definitely on ‪#‎TeamJule‬ now!

New year, new gear

A few players signed new clothing deals during the off season, the most notable is Tomas Berdych who switched from H&M to adidas. Does that mean no more wacky outfits for Tomas? I’m eager to know if the Swedish brand will sign another player or stop the experiment there.

Lacoste has lost 3 top players: John Isner signed with Fila, David Goffin joined asics, and although nothing has been announced yet, it seems Timea Bacsinszky moved to asics too.

Another new asics recruit is Julia Goerges, who left Fila.

And Elina Svitolina – a previous ellesse ambassador – announced her signing with Nike on Instagram:

Hello @nike
