Highland Spring ends sponsorship with Murray

Quote

I think Andy should be sponsored by a Sushi Company, he certainly talks about it enough.  w00t

Maybe we should start a new thread and get folks ideas on who his sponsor should be?  Playstation would be another good one.

I've also heard Nadal talk a lot about Sushi ... wonder why they think it is so good?

Perhaps just personal preference ...

It's been getting increasingly difficult for Andy to be seen drinking Highland Spring as so many of the big tournaments have sponsorship agreements with other bottled water brands such as Evian and Perrier.  I can't remember exactly when and where it was, but I was watching Andy in a match on TV and the commentators explained that he'd been told he wasn't allowed to be seen drinking Highland Spring as it was regarded as advertising a brand other than the official sponsor.  Also, Andy, like most big players, tends to drink his very specific formulated energy drinks throughout matches, we all saw the big bottles at the AO final marked clearly Set 1, 2, 3, etc - no Highland Spring labels in sight.

That sounds a very likely explanation ...  Smile

Thanks for the reminder.  Evian seemed to be high on his preference list, so that could well be a big factor in HS's decision.  No firm is going to continue sponsoring a sportsperson who doesn't flash their brand labels around at every opportunity.

Just thought I'd throw in the behaviour thing, though.  What HS may have found acceptable from an 18 year old may they may not have been so willing to accept from a 23 year old, especially as expected results weren't always forthcoming.

However, my cousin's eldest son works in LA for Entertainment 19 on the music side of things, and I can assure you that they are a very high-powered organisation, so it could also be the case that negotiations for a renewed contract simply fell through.

I shouldn't imagine a tennis player's "bad" behaviour would  make the slightest difference to people who drink this stuff. Most of them probably dont even know who Andy Murray is
