World #1 player Simona Halep is competing at the Australian Open "without a brand after her management were unable to agree to terms on an extension with Adidas"


“Yeah, my people are working for me on this stuff,” she said. “I have no contract now. I‘m still with no brand clothes.”

In a thoroughly modern sourcing arrangement, Halep found a Chinese company on the Internet to make her an outfit and they produced one within 24 hours after she sent them a picture of what she wanted.

She wore the red dress to victory at this month’s Shenzhen Open and will wear it again at Melbourne Park.
