Kuznetsova has recently switched clothing sponsor, from Fila to Qiaodan:

“I had offer, and I appreciate Fila. I have been with Fila for 10 years or more. They did the best for me. I appreciate everything they done. But it’s time for me to do a new thing, and that’s why sign me deal. And pretty happy looking forward to have a good relationship with the new company, Chinese company. I like so much the quality of the clothes. I like the design a lot.”

Never heard of Qiaodan before? Well, me neither.
