The Other Wimbledon Winner Empty The Other Wimbledon Winner

Post by hawkeye Sun 06 Jul 2014, 9:49 am

Traditions are traditions and so either Roger or Novak will walk away with the traditional Wimbledon trophy today but there was another winner at Wimbledon this year. This player may not have won a slam in fact he didn't even make the final but as far as prestige, bragging rights and more importantly sponsorship deals he was a huge winner at Wimbledon. What he did was take out the number one player and not just any number one player. Beating Nadal at a slam can be career defining. Maybe they should give any player that can do it a trophy?

Rafael Nadal win means world is Nick Kyrgios' oyster, says celebrity agent Max Markson

The world is Nick Kyrgios' oyster after his sensational Wimbledon victory over world No.1 Rafael Nadal looks set to open the door to million-dollar contracts, says celebrity agent Max Markson
The high-profile manager, who lists Bill Clinton, Nelson Mandela and Kim Kardashian as clients, thinks Kyrgios rocketing into the men's top 100 has started him on a path to potential career earnings in excess of $20 million – and that does not include endorsements.
Markson said Kyrgios' manager, John Morris, from Global Tennis Connections, would look to lock in two- or three-year deals, rather than just one-offs.

Watches, sunglasses, phones and breakfast cereals are all possibilities on the horizon.

Morris told The Canberra Times in January they would be selective about endorsements so that they could build a high-end brand similar to Nadal and Roger Federer.

"There will be fresh things as well ... if you're a breakfast cereal company, or a soft drink company, or health drink – marketers love fresh talent and love someone who's young,'' Markson said.

"He's inspirational and aspirational for the youth market.

"There's watches, sunglasses, telephones, there's all sorts of things. The world is his oyster, whatever he wants to do he'll be able to do."

It must be tough being Nadal when there is such a high price on your head.

I certainly enjoy a nice bowl of Rosol flakes whilst wearing my Darcis sunglasses.

Any comment on the actual tournament hawkeye? Murray lost, which I suspect was the most important thing for you.

If they dish them out to any player who beats Rafa at Wimbledon they're gonna need to make a lot of trophies.
