Serena supposedly has a lifetime deal with Nike for over $110 million at over $16 million a year.
While Ronaldo's Nike deal is worth much less at $32.5 million for 4 years.
I would think that International Soccer stars like Ronaldo bring in a lot more revenue for Nike than Serena Williams.
And International Soccer and Athletic apparel are growing strong in China and other parts of the world.
But, the athletes Nike and ESPN really like are the College and younger amateurs they don't have to pay anything too!

And while Ronaldo is a global superstar who is good for the sport, Serena the girl-rilla ( I can't take credit for this )is a disgrace to her sport. Not sure why they want a poor sport like Serena representing their product. I guess maybe people outside the US don't know what she is really like and probably don't give a crap anyhow. You have greats like Michael Jordan who did so much for basketball and then idiots like Serena who have been a disgrace to tennis. What are you guys at Nike thinking??????
