GlamBiz: FILA

We have finally made it to the spring 2015 clay season! Before we turn our attention to Europe and Roland Garros, let's stop to take a closer look at FILA.

FILA-sponsored tennis players have been ascendant over the past couple weeks. At Indian Wells, Jelena Jankovic was the runner-up at the BNP Paribas Open.




Sam Querrey was a Finalist in this weekend's U.S. Men's Clay Court Championship held down in Houston, Texas.

Jelena and Sam rocked FILA's latest, brightly-hued designs. Jelena wore a pink dress from the very popular Ready, Set, Glow! collection, while Sam sported a top and shorts from the Suit Up collection this Spring.

In addition to outfitting tennis pros in hi-tech, stylish designs, FILA also served as a sponsor at both tournaments.

GlamSpinTennis spoke to Lauren Mallon, the Senior Marketing Manager/Tennis at FILA, to get some insight into FILA's partnership with the BNP Paribas Open.

FILA has been an Official Supplier to the Indian Wells tournament since 1998.  The apparel-maker works with the tournament to design a uniform collection for the ball kids, lines persons, and volunteers at this desert stop on the WTA and ATP tours.

Indian Wells is a premier destination for the tennis pros, fans, and television broadcasters from across the globe. Watching matches in-person, on TV, or streaming on the Internet, one is hard-pressed to miss the FILA logo, featured conspicuously on linesmen, ball kids, and court-side officials.

As the official apparel and footwear provider at the tournament, FILA designers work with tournament officials to design a uniform collection that is "athletic and figure-flattering," and in a "unique color-palate"according to Mallon.

According to Mallon, the Uniform Collection design and production process takes approximately 10 months.  Discussions between FILA and the tournament about the color palate and designs begin May of the preceding year while production begins in early August.

This year's Uniform Collection featured a flirt skirt-bottom with flounce in pink and contrast color shorts in navy for Ball Girls.  Ball Boys were outfitted in a high v-neck in "scuba blue, twilight and white."

US Open 2018: Welcome Back & New Logo

Well...it's been 2 years hasn't it. That's what heading to grad school will do to a person. Sometimes the axiom, 'the more things change, the more they stay the same,' rings true. But sometimes, as with the case of the US Open's new logo, one steps away, and comes to find that things have gone completely awry. Is this Arial font? Are these letters lower case? Really, in this political climate, lower case US? Is lower case an affront to becoming great again? Also, is this logo actually in Arial Italics? According to the USTA, "t he logo created by renowned graphic design firm Chermayeff & Geismar & Haviv, is a streamlined and modernized version of the tournament’s iconic flaming ball logo, which was first introduced in 1997." The old logo had a solid 20-year run. This logo probably won't make it this long because it lacks pizzazz and lacks the distinction the previous logo offered.  And here's a look at an earlier

GlamBiz: Rafa Nadal Inc.

Reports recently circulated indicating that Rafael Nadal earned $10 million in fees for participating in exhibitions throughout South America during to the 2013 off-season.  While the dollar figure hasn't been confirmed, the Nadal camp hasn't denied or corroborated the story.  This story seemingly flies in the face of the swash-buckling, pirate pant wearing, narrative that was spun when Nadal first emerged as a future No.1 in the mid-aughts. Nadal was the island boy who enjoyed staying home and going fishing with his amigos.  Times sure have changed! According to Forbes magazine, Rafa has earned $25 million from his off-court deals and activities.  Let's take a look at Rafa Nadal Inc.: Agent & Agency Rafa is repped by Carlos Costa, a former ATP player who earned 6 singles titles while on the tour.  Carlos and Rafa initially joined forces around 2002 under the super-agency, IMG. Carlos also managed David Ferrer, but now concentrates solely on Nadal,
