Roger adds IMG to his team

19.09.2005 | Off Court

Roger has expanded his business team by adding IMG, the world’s largest sports marketing and management agency, to capitalize on his global business opportunities. 

 

With his sixth major title, back-to-back U.S. Opens, three straight Wimbledon victories, and one Australian Open, the 24-year-old, is already proclaimed by many as the greatest male tennis player in history – including by Andre Agassi, whom he defeated in Sunday’s final.  His success, combined with the global reach of tennis, has expanded his worldwide marketing needs. Now IMG joins Roger’s management team.  “It is definitely an ideal situation,” Roger emphasizes: “I continue to work with my team and can use the advantages of both the existing lean structure and a worldwide network at the same time.”

 

“I met with IMG’s new owner and chairman, Ted Forstmann, and learned about his vision for IMG going forward and the team he proposed for me at IMG.  I liked what he had to say in terms of business ideas and also have found a common ground with Ted in terms of our charitable efforts in addressing children’s issues, especially in Africa,” Roger says. “We hope this partnership can take us to the next level.”

 

"Roger is an international superstar on and off the court and has emerged as a global icon,” Forstmann says. “He is an extraordinarily bright, polite, thoughtful young man and, as a result, I am delighted to have the opportunity to work with him both on his business and philanthropic efforts throughout the world.”
