Coaches who coach big named players get sweeter deals these days cause the big players make more money off the court than on.
Well, coaches are shown on TV a lot sitting in the box. So that type of pseudo advertising is worth something.I hear these days coaches can get their own apparel deals with the company that their players endorse
This applies to top players obvs.
Also, aside from any fee, the players pay for their coach's travel and accommodation
Agassi worked for TIPS.According to Agassi, his payment of coaching Novak was "for the betterness of tennis" (i.e, nothing) which I find hard to believe but given the spurious nature of their relationship and severely limited amount of coaching weeks together, it may well be true!
Ever since Agassi offered his "services" to Djoko for free, I was suspicious about possible motives with Andre, so financial compensation never was even close to being an issue.Agassi tossed Djokovic for not tipping enough. It is easier to tolerate disagreements when one is compensated well.
There needs to be a sequel to 'Open' with all the inside info on this coaching adventure.Ever since Agassi offered his "services" to Djoko for free, I was suspicious about possible motives with Andre, so financial compensation never was even close to being an issue.
Like many observers I did notice that with each passing month with Nole and Andre talking by phone or skype __DAILY__, that Nole went from still pretty good to average to bad to not even being a shadow of his former self, including a rash decision pro surgery after 6 months of careful revalidation and allowing the tissue to heal.
Did not see Agassi attending any Nole match since Jan 2018. Extremely weird, all this.
