Bucharest - Australian Open finalist Simona Halep has signed
a deal with Nike after playing without a sponsor in Melbourne.
The second-ranked Romanian made the announcement on Monday
on her Facebook account. She posted a photo with the caption,"Just Do It.
I just did it."
Halep wore a red unbranded dress in last month's final,
leading to some jokes on social media. She said she bought the dress online.
Halep was also without a clothing sponsor when she won the
Shenzhen Open earlier in January.
Romanian media said Halep's deal with Nike is worth $2
million a year.
Halep previously had a contract with Adidas.
