What a weekend for Nike and IMG (International Management Group). Nike/IMG clients Maria Sharapova and Roger Federer win US Open titles, and Tiger Woods gets major pub watching the Fed make it happen.
Interesting how the very first on-court question from Dick Enberg to Roger after his title was about Tiger sitting in the stands. Just a hunch, but I doubt the next time Tiger wins a golf Slam with Federer in attendance the first question to Woods isn’t going to be if having Roger watching added to the pressure. But I guess that’s the problem with tennis these days here in the U.S. Who’s watching can be just as if not more important than the event itself in our biz.
