Andy Murray shuffles management team to capitalise on Asian markets
British number one remains with Simon Fuller's XIX Entertainment
Andy Murray has made two important additions to his management team. Simon Fuller's XIX Entertainment, who have handled the Scot's business affairs since 2007, have joined forces with Globosport, which is run by the Indian player Mahesh Bhupathi, in a new venture which will see Murray become its first client.
As part of the new deal Murray will also team up with Ugo Colombini, a former player and highly experienced agent who has worked closely with Juan Martin del Potro.
Bhupathi's company will provide expertise in the expanding Asian markets - his business has built up a strong reputation in sports management, TV and film production - while 45-year-old Colombini, an Italian, will bring more tennis specialist expertise to Murray's management team.
"I believe a mix of Simon's experience and Mahesh's understanding of the sport will create the perfect team for my off-court interests and will allow me to continue to dedicate myself and focus on my goals on the court," Murray said in a statement.
