I'm glad Andy is hoping it won't be for a number of years before his tennis-playing days are done but do hope we don't then lose him to footie. 
Nole has always given the impression of being needy for love and approval.  But cannot understand how Adidas could snub Andy so publicly.  Presumably they're wooing Nole, having chosen Andy over him last time.

LOL.  That's what I've been saying about Dimitrov lately, but it could probably apply to both.  Both seem very eager to be 'loved', and it's a bit needy.  They aren't just any old boyband member, they are behaving like the one that wants to be the favourite, knowing full well he's not the talented one, or even the best looking one.  OK, so Dimitrov could also be the good looking one, but both are trying a bit too hard!  Rolling Eyes

Agreed Sparkle.   Most of the top players are too image conscious.    There is one player who, when asked what his style was, said "Don't try too hard".   Be your own man and don't follow the herd.    That to me is very attractive.     Of course the player in question also happens to be very handsome which helps.    wub

That apart, I was a bit surprised that a player is allowed to wear any of the kit of a former sponsor, but I've discovered that Nishikori also wears Adidas shoes, and Berdych, who's now clothed by Swedish company H&M, still wears the shoes of his old sponsor, Nike.  It seems the shoes don't matter that much because on television shirts emblazoned with company names and logos usually receive far more exposure.  Also, according to a spokesman for Adidas - “We love competition as it drives us all to push the boundaries and make the best product possible.”

I honestly think Andy is leaving Adidas. I know it's not much to go on but they congratulated Djokovic on his win today but NO congrats to Andy. Whoever is in charge of the adidas twitter feed was still responding to Novak fans re his campaign. They obviously thought that was more relevant than Andy. I've got a feeling.

Spot on Sparkle. I think Novak has always been rather needy and he takes a lack of crowd support wayyyy too personally. I just find the whole "love me, love me" bit a bit over the top and rather gushy. It wouldn't kill Andy to respond to the odd fan tweet once in a while but I wouldn't like him to lean too much towards Novak's idea of fan interaction. Perhaps I'm being rather mean-spirited.

It does sound very like it to me, but even so what a mean way to treat somebody you've sponsored for five years. Frown

I thought Andy did respond occasionally to fan tweets?  Also he's done those Q&A sessions as well.  I've just had a look at Novak's official website, something I have done before out of curiosity, and he now has a 'Nole For You' section which is a live video reply by him to fans' questions, although I reckon it must be pre-recorded because his answers in English have Serb subtitles and vice versa.

It was @adidasuk that posted that. @adidastennis congratulated Djokovic AND Nishikori after their wins but no congrats for Andy. It's great that 2 players that wear uniqlo and adidas trainers are treated better that Andy.

well, if it wasn't for Cahill, I'd say the sooner Andy says auf wiedersehen to Adidas the better
