Also, for those who don't know what IMG does for players. Here is a brief description...
Over 40 years ago, IMG revolutionized client management and established it as a business discipline and powerful marketing tool. Today, we help hundreds of elite athletes, coaches, industry executives and prestigious sports organizations maximize their earnings potential and build strong personal brands. We specialize in nearly every aspect of career development - from contract negotiations to licensing and endorsements and broadcasting opportunities. Through our joint venture, Ari Fleischer Sports Communications, we also offer a diverse range of media-related services to help our clients leverage the power of positive publicity. IMG's long-term approach to comprehensive career management can lead to enduring commercial and philanthropic success.
For a player like CoCo, they help fund her tennis career ( travel, clothing, coaching etc ) aswell
as negotiate contracts ( endorsements etc ), WCs for tourneys and expos like the one she played in Hong Kong with Venus and Dulko at the begining of the year =)
Also, I think they either OWN the Miami tourney or they are a MAJOR sponsor of the tourney
