When tennis legends Bjorn Borg, Rafael Nadal, Rod Laver, John McEnroe and Roger Federer gathered collectively in New York in August 2016 to announce the launch of a singular crew tennis event primarily owned by Roger Federer’s administration firm, TEAM8, there was wild pleasure.

For those who didn’t know, Federer owns a stake in TEAM8, which is run by his long-time agent, Tony Godsick.
