Pete Sampras, winner of a record 14 Grand Slam tennis tournaments, has formed a California-based management company to be run by his brother, a longtime sports marketing executive.
Pure Sports Management, LLC, will oversee Sampras' business opportunities and venture into managing other athletes.
"After I retired, I had many different companies approach me with various opportunities and I wanted to streamline all of these deals through one entity," Sampras said in a statement issued Thursday. "Starting my own company and having my brother Gus run it was a natural, as he has been involved throughout my career."
Sampras won seven Wimbledon championships, five U.S. Open championships and two Australian Open championships during his career. He will be inducted into the International Hall of Fame in Newport, R.I. this summer.
Gus Sampras has worked in sports marketing for over 18 years. He spent 12 years at International Management Group (IMG), where he served as vice president of IMG Tennis.
