Roger's deal last yr. was that Tony would help him before Majors. Last I heard AO is a Major, but US Masters are not. I'm extremely concerned 'cuz now we're hearing of Tony making a commitment to someone else, but no info. on new arrangement w/Roger. Tony didn't come to NYC 'cuz he had another commitment to Aussie tennis - but he stayed w/him the whole time in Europe, from Hamburg on, which Roger hadn't expected.
Anyone else surprised that Tony only asks $10k/wk., given what Top Players earn. I assumed coaches to all top players picked up ~$1M/yr. + perhaps share of tournment winnings/bonuses for Majors won. But Tony is the God of coaches, so I would have the thought the sky would be the limit. $25k/wk would only come out to ~$1.2M/yr for 52 wks - Christ, I'd think Tony is worth at least that - w/private plane thrown in 'cuz it's so painful for him to travel. After all, Roger is only asking him to help him take that last little step to tennis immortality from being a mere genius!!
(Maybe Tony's getting bored - Christ, not another Wimbledon Victory Party again next year!! Pretty soon Roger might try to drag me to a Paris Victory Party too...Yawn...and NYC...and Shanghai...this is getting ridiculous...maybe it's time to look for a new job...
