IMG seems to have a pretty strong influence on the sport when it comes to owning tournaments, negotiating endorsements and organizing exos. Does anybody know which players in the top 100 they represent?

So far I know of the ff:

Federer
Nadal
Gasquet
Blake
Haas

I also clicked on their "tournament management" section in their site and they say that they "manage" the ff:

Australian Open
Chennai Open
China Open
Medibank Open
Open Gaz de France
Wimbledon

Isn't there a conflict of interest if they manage tournaments and players at the same time?

I thought you were talking about players with IMG Modeling contracts because that's Vaidisova, Sharpie-ova, and Blake I think.

IMG also reps Donald Young, John McEnroe, Gimelstob, Philippoussis, and Davenport. Pretty sure they own the Indianapolis tournament, but that might be one of the others.

SFX has a vested interest in a few tournaments, as does Octagon, so all of the 3 main agancies in tennis have both players and events in their potfolios.

Thanks for the information Fee. SFX does have a good tennis portfolio but I don't think it's to the extent that IMG does where they manage 3 out of 4 slams. (RG is also listed in their portfolio, along with Oz and Wimbledon.) Elite owns Madrid (I think) because of Ion Tiriac but I don't think the other companies are as heavily vested in tennis as IMG is.

I suppose the next question is how many IMG managed tournaments are won by IMG managed players?
