Worrying thing is the alleged value of the deal, reports that it's a much reduced figured in comparison to what Adidas deal was are being interpreted as evidence of Andy's so called decline.

Under Armour produces neon shirts and weird headgear. I'm worried.

well unfortunately that's the truth.  Andys value would have dropped a lot after 2014. Fact. And he's got enough cash anyway

Well we haven't heard officially yet ...but on the official site for uk it seems they have tennis sports stuff for women but not men - so there is a niche there. And a left-field decision does seem to fit in with Andy's mindset.
I think the site looks interesting. As long as it fits well with no problems eg pocket malfunctions - I think it could be a good change for Andy.

well if that's the case Milly, I'd like nothing more than Andy now proving them all wrong.   It's perhaps not surprising given the end of the Adidas contract coincided with the end of what was inevitably a difficult year for Andy.  But as Prod says he doesn't need the money and I don't think he worries too much about status either.

I like neon colours. And i doubt Andy will have a great need for headgear.

Has this actually been officially confirmed.  Just because he seems to be wearing something of theirs surely does not mean he has a contract with them.

Nothing has been officially confirmed, and according to what I have read neither the people from Lagardere who work with Andy's management to negotiate etc the business side of things for Andy, or Under Armour, have provided comment either way on this.

However today two Baltimore (UA is based there) newspapers published articles about a rumoured deal between Andy and UA. Links below, but the interesting things are: the deal might be similar to the Adidas deal but offer a combination of stock and cash, and UA are developing a tennis shoe. UA seem to pride themselves on innovation and development - that was the point of the company in the first place - so they are likely to be keen to develop new products, ideas etc with Andy as the face of the innovation. They might be interested in working with new things like wearable technology, which Andy has expressed an interest in. My sense is that they could be more willing to work with Andy on things, rather than go 'this is your kit', which is what Adidas has felt like for the last year or so, if not longer.

So it would seem that Andy is not taking a cut in his sponsorship from what he got from Addidas as had been rumored, in fact he will have a higher profile and input into Under-armour tennis kit and shoes.

Just what we had hoped for really - more input into his own kit rather than just being told what to wear
