Monfils Switches Agents, Joins Wawrinka At Starwing Sports

Gael_Monfils_lrWorld number 24 Gael Monfils has left his agent Nicolas Lemperin and signed a representation agreement with Starwing Sports. The electric Frenchman will be represented by Lawrence Frankopan. The boutique agency currently has six players on their list, including Australian Open winner Stanislas Wawrinka and former champion Chris Evert. They are based in London.

27 year old Monfils currently has a multi-year contract with apparel company Asics and racquet supplier Wilson, both of which he signed at the start of last year. Commissions from these deals will still go to Lamperin. The flamboyant Monfils is one of the most popular tennis players on the tour, often attracting large crowds for his energetic style of play and likeable demeanour. His marketability is sure to attract plenty of offers through appearance fees and sponsors.
