Nikolay Davydenko, conspicous as the top-ranked player without a formal racquet endorsement, has now signed an equipment and apparel deal with Dunlop, says the sporting goods company.

Davydenko had previously continued to play with Prince racquets despite not having a long-term deal with the company any longer. "Prince give everything to [Maria] Sharapova, and no money any more," he jokingly explained last year.
