Sampras has returned to IMG for marketing and management as his tennis career winds down and he starts to look at new business and personal opportunities.

Bob Kain, IMG North America president and COO, will oversee the newly-formed "Team Sampras," which will be involved in everything from marketing, to academies, to special events.

Commented Sampras: "As I begin to transition to a non-tennis-playing career, IMG is the place I want to be. Bob and I have always had a great relationship, and it's time for me to capitalize on IMG's expertise and experience at this important point in my life."

Whilst no set date was given for Sampras' retirement, Kain indicated that IMG would certainly be involved in planning some type of "farewell" tour at the appropriate time.

IMG's other notable tennis clients include Venus Williams, Serena Williams, Jennifer Capriati, Chris Evert, Martina Navratilova, John McEnroe and Monica
