Birthday Boy Novak Djokovic Signs With Lacoste


Let's hope Nole's shaman won't be coaching him on blowing out the 30 candles.

Novak Djokovic has signed with Lacoste, his fourth apparel manufacturer that I can remember off the top of my head. (Remember when he bailed on Sergio Tacchini because he was so good they couldn't fulfill their contract obligations that included winning bonuses they never thought he'd be able to attain?!) Not sure what blows my mind more -- that it's been five years since he signed with Uniqlo (wasn't that yesterday?), or that he was being born in 1987 when I attended my first Grand Slam title, at Roland Garros!

Andy Roddick made a sexy spokesman back in the day.

Something tells me this contract is going to be like when Janet Jackson or R.E.M. signed huge deals with labels after their heyday and never delivered much.

he also signed with Adre Agassi to coach him for Roland-Garros (French Open). I think it's too late... Nole needs to get out of that cult!
