For the shoe lovers out there, here are some photos of the shoes from Puma’s GV line, designed in conjunction with Guillermo Vilas.

These models sport 19-91 on the heels to represent the year he was inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame, and they also show a picture of Villas holding a trophy on the tongue. They will hit stores in June and are the most limited of the GV series.

a tip for mauresmo

It’s more than just her sexuality that may be keeping sponsors away, said Dean Bonham of the Bonham Group, a Denver sports marketing firm. He said Mauresmo could command up to $10 million a year if she revealed a charismatic personality and compelling story to the public.

That’s right, Amelie. Stop being boring.

On the flipside, let’s point out one of the companies that have added her to their endorsement roster: Head signed Amelie on in the beginning of February, with the agreement lasting throughn 2010. She was previously with Dunlop.
