Cox Signs with IMG

July 27, 2009

BRADENTON, Florida — IMG Tennis, a division of global sports entertainment and media company IMG, today announced that rising American tennis star Jordan Cox selected IMG for worldwide management and marketing representation.

Cox, 17, from Duluth, Georgia recently reached the finals of the 2009 Wimbledon Junior Championships, and competed in the Main Draw of the Lexington, Kentucky Challenger this week. Cox will continue to train at the Nick Bollettieri Tennis Academy (NBTA) at IMG Academies, while beginning his career on the professional tour. The NBTA, viewed as the world’s foremost sports and educational training facility, has produced many of the world’s top tennis players including Andre Agassi, Jim Courier, Tommy Haas, Monica Seles, Anna Kournikova, Maria Sharapova, and Nicole Vaidisova.

When talking about Jordan, Nick Bollettieri, his coach and Founder and President of IMG Academies, said, “He reminds me a lot of Jim Courier. He is a bulldog on the court. He grinds, fights, and does everything in his power to come off the court as a winner. We all know what a fantastic career Courier had, and if Jordan keeps the attitude he has been showing, it can carry him a long way.”
