What role do this agents have in the big picture?
Is it:
They fix the flight tickets, they enter and withdrew players at the right time,they decides where to play, they do most of the office work:confused:

Or is it:
They look after the players media image, they sends out press releases, decides what to say and when:confused:

Are this lists more or less the same year after year
:confused:

Why is some players under more than one agent:confused:

read properly salima, it says "more than one contract" OK

What percent of a players wining check do they get?
A player has to pay taxes, all of their medical bills, travel & hotel expences. The top players have to pay the coach & trainer, hitting partners, gaurds & all kinds of insurance.
I can see why it's so inportant to get commmercials. Kim father was right. The taxes are too high.

Wow.....definitely IMG and Octagon have the best ones.

this was the 2002 List

every deal is different between player and their management company.
depends on where you come from and what your needs are.

IMG and Octagon are the biggest by far.

Interesting. Pete Sampras and Serena Williams are signed to an entertainment agency. William Morris commonly handles movie stars and screenwriters.

William Morris is trying to break into Sports Marketing, that is why they hired Jill Smoller who represents Rick Fox(basketball) as well as the others listed. Serena only uses William Morris for entertainment purposes. IMG handles all of her sports related stuff. I know that Smoller is actively pursuing other tennis players to sign with William Morris.

I think these agents get around 10%-25% of a players' earnings and for that they get them endorsements, take care of their money (investments, paying bills, etc.), help them make up their schedule, get them appearance fees, get them into exhibitions and hire and fire their coaches. Plus, as everyone knows, IMG and SFX actually run several of the non-Slam/non-Masters touraments and get their lower ranked clients into various ones.:hearts:

These agencies try hard to find very young players who might become the next big thing so they can lock them into a contract and make money off them. So, it's a jungle out there and young players who do well in junior tournaments can take their pick of agents.:rolleyes: I think an American just won the Orange Bowl and, if I remember correctly, there were agents all over the place down there watching and he was the main attraction.:kiss: I think IMG has the inside track, but I can't remember. (I can't even remember the player's name, which shows how much I pay attention to junior tennis):o

Anyway, every agent dreams of getting an Andre Agassi or an Anna K. that they could live off of until they grow a big stable. Andre and Anna make more money than anybody from endorsements PLUS Andre actually makes money from playing tennis.:eek: Also, these players can earn a couple million a year from appearance fees and exhibitions that the agencies arrange.

Ramsey Smith

Interesting. He's Stan Smith's son and last I saw of him he was playing in college. I wonder how good he is.:) He's blond and handsome so, if he can get his career going he could make a mint in endorsements.:kiss:

Aha! Now we see why Octagon clients play that Acapulco thing on clay despite the difficulty of the surface change! Maybe Mary Pierce and Nadya Petrova will join the others there this year! :)

So how does IMG feel about Venus, Jennifer, and Serena skipping Indian Wells?:eek:

Do you mean they get 25% before taxes? & is it 25% of everything, or just what they arange. I think it's too much.

So how does IMG feel about Venus, Jennifer, and Serena skipping Indian Wells.

Venus, Serena and Jennifer are so powerful and bring in so much money for IMG that those folks would not dare try to make them play Indian Wells.:mad: It wouldn't take much effort for any of those three to say "see ya" and sign on with another agent.:rolleyes: And, trust me, IMG knows that, which is probably why they have kept their mouths shut about those girls not playing there. They know better.

IMG doesn't own the ATP portion of Indian Wells, by the way. SFX runs a few of the mens' tournaments: San Jose, Scottsdale, Washington and a couple more.

Do you mean they get 25% before taxes? & is it 25% of everything, or just what they arange. I think it's too much.

It's according to what's negotiated and the more powerful a player is the more favorable it is to that player. Mostly the agency receives 10%-25% OFF THE TOP which means BEFORE TAXES. They receive this from everything (prize money, endorsements and even modeling assignments). I don't know if this has to be the case because of American tax laws or if that's just the way it is.:confused:

The very low ranked players and newer players are just happy to have an agent working to get them into tournaments/exhibitions, etc. and the highly ranked players are happy to be making so much money.:hearts: Agassi probably pays his agency (SFX) 10%-15% because he also has a personal agent (Perry Rogers) who is the one who deals directly with SFX and he probably gets 10%-15%. Together, all these people help Andre to earn over $20 million a year. So, I'm sure he's not unhappy with the arrangements.;)
