Only a few months after parting company with Roger Federer, sporting mega-agency IMG is reportedly stalking a contract with Novak Djokovic.
The ATP world No. 2, who dominated the 2011 season but has gone off the boil in 2012, has been working with CAA sports, but is no longer with the company that has represented him for the past four years.
Djokovic is considered the third most elite player in the tennis marketing world, behind all-star Federer and charismatic Rafael Nadal. He signed a clothing contract earlier this season with Japan's Uniqlo after Italy's Sergio Tacchini year had to cut him loose due to the expense of making his fast-accumulating contracted bonus payments.
The Serb is also a lead endorser for Head racquets along with Andy Murray and Maria Sharapova.
The New York Post said that Djokovic has been consulting "informally" with American billionaire venture capitalist Ron Burkle.
Federer left IMG in the spring when his longtime agent Tony Godsick turned in his resignation. Since then, management of the Swiss player's estimated $40-50 million in annual endorsements has been handled by Godsick, who is now listed as working with RF Management.
