$1.5 million means Yuri made around $300,000 as coach. What's Eisenbud make? Does he get 5% of all earnings? He probably takes over $1 million of Maria's money every year.
isn't Eisenbud IMG employee? Anyways I think he deserves every buck he gets. I mean a lot of people doubted if such an ammount of endoursements going to affect Maria's performance on tour and if she would turn into another Kournikova, but it didn't, so now noone is even mentioning it. A lot thanks to him I guess. The guy knows how to negotiate a good deal.
And it is no wonder if Yuri really gets so much. I guess he is more of shareholder than employee.
