It has just been reported that Tommy Haas has signed with Lagardere...

This is a French listed company which is involved in many different businesses e.g. publishing + newstands around the world etc but for some reason also has a keen interest in sports...

A lot of the French players have reportedly "defected" to Lagardere from the French tennis federation...and it seems like it's also reaching out to non-French players, e.g. Roddick (probably due to his French connection via Lacoste) and now Haas...

Does anyone know what support Lagardere provides to its stable of tennis players?

Is it gonna rival the Adidas program?
