Murray Adds Bhupathi, Colombini As Business Advisors To Build His Portfolio

Andy Murray has taken on two business advisors as he tries to "enhance the portfolio of interests that has struggled to keep pace with the grand-slam tournament champions whose company he shares," according to Neil Harman of the LONDON TIMES. Indian doubles specialist and entrepreneur Mahesh Bhupathi, who is retiring from the ATP Tour at the end of the year, and Italian agent Ugo Colombini are joining XIX Entertainment, the company that signed Murray in '09. The decision to employ Colombini "is especially sensitive" since he is the long-time manager of world No. 7 Juan Martín Del Potro, one of Murray's leading rivals. It is understood that Bhupathi and Colombini "will have special responsibility for Murray’s commercial and marketing deals" while he remains at XIX. IMG and Lagardère Unlimited "had wanted to prise Murray away" from the parent company, but the U.S. Open champion has "a strong allegiance" to XIX founder and CEO Simon Fuller and "was not willing to move elsewhere" (LONDON TIMES, 3/29)
