This is unusual: Danielle Collins will play in the Australian Open final without a shoe or clothing sponsorship

You’ve heard of in-between jobs, what about in-between sponsors?. Most top-ranked tennis players are sponsored by not only racket companies, but also shoe and clothing brands. The American tennis player Danielle Collins, for example, is sponsored by Babolat for her racket. But Collins, the No. 27 seed in the tournament, will play in her first-ever Grand Slam final without a clothing or shoe deal. That’s because her sponsorship with New Balance ended last summer, a source close to Collins informed MarketWatch.

Three to See, Australian Open Day 6: Can Danielle Collins topple the talented 19-year-old Clara Tauson?

Every so often Paire reminds us that there’s some substance beneath the mercurial flash. The 56th-ranked Frenchman did it again on Thursday when he edged Grigor Dimitrov in four tight sets. Can he put up that kind of sustained effort two rounds in a row? Paire has one win in four tries against Tsitsipas, and has lost their last three meetings in straight sets. With Novak Djokovic absent, Tsitsipas will surely be motivated to do everything he can to give himself a chance at his first Grand Slam title. But he did drop a set in his last round, and Paire is a guy who can disrupt anyone’s rhythm, no matter how dialed-in they try to be. Winner: Tsitsipas.
