World number one Simona Halep began the year in emphatic style with a title in Shenzhen but she is yet to find a clothing sponsor. This is bad news for the womens game. The world No. 1 does not have a clothing sponsor after her partnership with Adidas ended on December 31, 2017 and she said she has no news regarding who she plans on signing with.
With Adidas it’s finished. Yesterday was the last day I was wearing Adidas clothes. I have nothing now. My manager is looking after this so I have no idea. It’s just the first day of the year and I’m looking forward to see what the future gives me and I’m okay.
Romania’s Halep, who will be seeking her maiden Grand Slam title at the Australian Open in two weeks’ time still uses the highly acclaimed Wilson Burn 100 CV Racket which scores well in racquet reviews but needs to find some clothing to match ASAP.
