Fed's marriage
an 06' wedding, perhaps? well see if that pans out.

Fed is the man who is in charge of his career no matter if uses IMG or his parents/Mirka. He's the boss and whatever he says goes...He WILL NOT let IMG trample over him...that's for sure!!

No one here has the particulars of the deal he struck with IMG. They are supplementing his main team and how they are going to do this going forward remains to be seen.

Roger was with IMG up until the end of 2003 when he fired them and Lundgren. At that time, his reason for getting rid of IMG was that he didn't want his career to be about marketing. He wanted it to be about tennis. Might be the same reason Sampras fired them.

Roger is a huge worldwide star. He's not a megastar, a la Lance Armstrong and he's much younger.

The good news is, with IMG behind Roger there will be more emphasis to broadcast Roger's matches on ESPN who appear to do everything they can not to show his matches unless he's in the final.

Perhaps Roger can help out the Indian Wells event and get IMG to reconsider selling the tournament. I can't imagine Roger will be in a position to play back to back TMS events if he has to play in China and then rush off to Miami.

Well Roger used the word "partnership" in the press release and the headline was "Roger Federer adds IMG to his team", so my guess is ultimately he'll still be calling the shots but his exiting team will get a break. It's probably better this way because after going solo for a few years Roger is wiser and won't allow himself to be screwed over in any way. His current team alone was never going to be able to get to the next level and turn him into a global brand, but with IMG on board the probably can.posted by mirkaland
well, yes, i don't get the feeling,that Roger is that kind of a kid , who lets others handle things for him,he looks carefully for those whom he can trust ,and that's why i think , he's not that surrounded by large number of ppl.
so perhaps a step like this , means IMG 'll have a big part of the job to handle,but still he and his team i think 'll keep a watching eye on things ...and who knows, may be this step means new happy plans for the head of the team :) ??

It will be harder for them to do so at this point in his career, and especially since he went solo for a couple of years. Roger's not stupid, he knows what he's doing. I think he has a better chance of calling the shots now then say two, three years ago. I'm sure IMG was just drooling at the propsect of adding him to their roster so they'll do whatever he wants.

OFF COURT - ROGER ADDS IMG TO HIS TEAM

Roger has expanded his business team by adding IMG, the world’s largest sports marketing and management agency, to capitalize on his global business opportunities.

With his sixth major title, back-to-back U.S. Opens, three straight Wimbledon victories, and one Australian Open, the 24-year-old, is already proclaimed by many as the greatest male tennis player in history – including by Andre Agassi, whom he defeated in Sunday’s final. His success, combined with the global reach of tennis, has expanded his worldwide marketing needs. Now IMG joins Roger’s management team. “It is definitely an ideal situation,” Roger emphasizes: “I continue to work with my team and can use the advantages of both the existing lean structure and a worldwide network at the same time.”

“I met with IMG’s new owner and chairman, Ted Forstmann, and learned about his vision for IMG going forward and the team he proposed for me at IMG. I liked what he had to say in terms of business ideas and also have found a common ground with Ted in terms of our charitable efforts in addressing children’s issues, especially in Africa,” Roger says. “We hope this partnership can take us to the next level.”

"Roger is an international superstar on and off the court and has emerged as a global icon,” Forstmann says. “He is an extraordinarily bright, polite, thoughtful young man and, as a result, I am delighted to have the opportunity to work with him both on his business and philanthropic efforts throughout the world.”
