andy murray signs with caa

February 4, 2009

Lanky boy Andy Murray has brought in a top Hollywood talent agency to help manage his Q rating as he tries to establish his place in the top five of men’s tennis.

According to the AP, Andy and brother Jamie have signed on to be represented by CAA and also 19 Entertainment. The latter is the same outfit that manages David Beckham.

We can’t wait to see what these agents’ll do for Andy when they start working with him on March 1. Perhaps Jeff Gillooly some of his naysayers? Screen his Twittering? GET HIM BETTER-FITTING CLOTHES FROM FRED PERRY?

A recent video on the Bjorn Borg website shows a guy and a gal duking it out on the tennis court while wearing very little of the spring 09 skivvies and shorts.

If only ATP tournaments were contested this way…

We’re never ones to toot our own horn, but rest assured that we’ll be having a swig or two from the liquor cabinet tonight — in celebration of TSF’s page view counter going north of the four million mark.

We’d like to thank our readers, friends, fellow bloggers — and spambots, of course — for reading (or “reading”) Tennis Served Fresh. We couldn’t do this without you!

By the way, make sure to check out that Sam Querrey profile by TSF contributor Krystle Russin

TSF chats with Sam Querrey about tennis, his new condo, his goals for 2009, and wanting a date with Taylor Swift.

Sam Querrey is driving his Range Rover en route to the Home Depot Center, an enormous athletic training facility in Carson, Calif. It’s where you might find David Beckham bending it on the soccer fields. Today, though, it’s all about Sam.

“I just got off a little while ago to get breakfast. I have to practice from 11:00 to 12:30 and then again from probably 1:30 to 3:00, and then I’m going to work out with a trainer from 3:00 to 4:00, and I’ve got to pick up some new ankle bracelets,” Querrey says, firing off a to-do list with nothing but tennis, tennis, tennis.

But this regimen is not without its rewards: Querrey is now the fourth-ranked American men’s tennis player, and in 2008 racked up some notable achievements, including his first title at the Tennis Channel Open in Las Vegas, putting up a fight against Nadal at the US Open, and participating in the Beijing Olympics.

When he’s not focusing on his craft, the 21-year-old Southern California native stays busy adjusting to life on his own. He recently bought a condo in the coastal city of Santa Monica. “It’s cool to have my own place and accomplish that at a young age, and I feel good about myself,” he says. The best part of his pad? “The hot tub.”
