How often does tennis come up in your daily life, and in what ways do you give back to the tennis community?
Well tennis is in my daily life period because I'm involved in tennis very vertically. I'm very active playing in the champions series, so playing Agassi, Sampras and McCenroe, we have a five-week tour in the U.S. where we'll hit 12 cities in those five weeks playing tournaments.
So I stay active practicing quite a bit throughout the weeks to stay fit. I'm active on the business side because my company, Inside Out Sports Entertainment, puts on the championship series. We promote it, we own it, we operate it. We also work with some other parties on some other events.
So I'm involved in the business side of tennis. The charity that I support, Courier's Kids, is a tennis and education program for kids down in St. Petersburg, Florida, which is where I'm from, in central Florida.
And I'm involved doing television of the Australian Open and the U.S Open as well, and I'm the Davis Cup Captain. So I am involved all day everyday it seems like, which is really wonderful for me because I'm passionate about the sport.
I think that it is great to see someone so passionate about the sport. Obviously, Courier has the resources to make a difference, not only to children but to other players on tour.
He does an excellent job of both. He has taken full advantage of his status as one of the greatest of all time, which is really nice to see.
