Murray looks east with new venture

ANDY Murray has been announced as the first client of a new partnership between his management company and Indian doubles star Mahesh Bhupathi’s GloboSport.

The venture, called XIX GloboSport, will help Murray develop his off-court interests, particularly in Asia and the Middle East.

Bhupathi is also behind plans for an International Tennis Premier League played in November and December and the Murray deal appears to increase the possibility of the Scot being involved.
