Jelena Dokic’s career-reviving run to the 2009 Australian Open quarterfinals has brought her some additional financial fruits in the form of an endorsement deal with Lacoste, believed to be potentially worth close to $4.4 million over three years.
We could see the 25-year-old Dokic dressed in Lacoste at the ongoing Sony Ericsson Open in Miami, where she reached the second round, but her further progress was stopped there by Caroline Wozniacki.
After becoming the most-talked about person at this year’s Australian Open, Dokic, who is now represented by management giant IMG, also entered into a lucrative arrangement with Australian budget airline Jetstar. (source: The Age, photo: Ralf Reinecke)
