Russian world number six Vera Zvonareva signed with IMG, global sports and entertainment company, for exclusive worldwide marketing and management representation.
“I feel like I have worked really hard and accomplished quite a lot on court the last six months and working with a company like IMG, that has such a worldwide presence will help me capitalize on these results. It will be great to have a global team guiding and helping me to take care of my business career so I can focus on my tennis,” said the 24-year-old Zvonareva.
Fernando Soler, Head of IMG’s Tennis Division, added, “We are really looking forward to working with Vera at this exciting time in her career. She is a very talented athlete with tremendous potential and we are thrilled she has chosen IMG to further develop her blossoming tennis career.”
The only bad thing is that Zvonareva’s amazing form has been interrupted by an ankle injury sustained at Charleston this month. Her doctors have declared that she will be out from two to twelve weeks.
At least she has some good news at the moment! Its such a shame for her being injured. Hopefully she can be back in time for Roland Garros but I must admit that I think its unlikely if she could potentially be out for up to twelve weeks.
