If the former, Adidas (till '09) & Head/Wilson are as rich as one can get. As for the latter, it can be a factor that he's not from a big one like IMG or something like that.
Yeah, ironically majority of up and comers are from Eastern Europe, where ATP don't seem to appreciate the value of the market or even the players
Well if they don t appreciate the market here, BIG MISTAKE. Because everything here is much more expensive, and people sill buying all kind of shits imported from west.
