Event hough Marion Bartoli in ranked 11 in the world and has won some tournaments, she can't find any sponsor for her clothing. Bartoli said she has been buying her own clothes and wonders why no companies is willing to sponsor her.
“I had one [sponsor] when I was younger, when I became the junior U.S. Open champion,” said Bartoli. “It doesn’t cost much, but I don’t understand why some lower-ranked players than me get a contract. It’s really ridiculous.”
She was quoted as saying one reason no sponsor wants to sign her is because she is “not blonde enough, not thin enough, not tall enough.”
I wonder if it has more to do with her agent than the sponsors? Why wouldn't Nike, Adidas, Fila, or whatever company want to sign her up?
Time for a new agent Marion.
