Dinara Safina used to be a recognizable face of adidas, but it seems that the top brand decided to let her go, probably because they gave up on expecting much exposure for their clothes from the former world No.1.
Adidas’ prediction for the new season turned out to be correct, as in three tournaments this year Safina hasn’t won a single match, including the most recent Australian Open devastation by Kim Clijsters.
The world No.75 Safina opened 2011 without a clothing sponsor, as you can see in the first photo, from the ASB Classic.
For the Grand Slam Safina secured the clothes of Italian brand, Sergio Tacchini.
However, Safina is still featured on adidas’ website, as one of their players. (via DeShawn Besabella)
