Q: Did Andy Murray wear and endorse Adidas?

A Yes he did, from 2009-2014. Andy Murray was one of Adidas' highest paid sports stars, earning in the region of $5 million per year ($24.5million across five years). Andy Murray endorsed and wore Adidas tennis shoes and clothes. The sleeves of his Adidas T-shirt retained sponsorship from: RBS (Royal Bank of Scotland) and Highland Spring (bottled water). Previous to endorsing Adidas, Andy Murray was endorsed by Fred Perry, and since 2014 he has been endorsed by Under Armour. Adidas refused to resign Andy Murray in 2009; in 2009 it looked like Murray could become the world's dominant tennis player, and Adidas declined to extend Novak Djokovic clothing contract in 2009. This ultimately proved to be an error, as Novak Djokovic is currently the world's number one tennis player and has won fourteen grand slam championships. That said, Adidas' endorsement partnership with Andy Murray was not a total failure: Andy Murray won Wimbledon in 2013 and the US Open in 2012; bringing plenty of brand awareness / attention for Adidas.
