Re: The Tennis player Rafal Nadal will be the new ambassador of PokerStars!!!

Pretty incredible pick up for Stars, Nadal is awesome. My understanding is that if/when the US gets regulation we should anticipate people with built in mainstream appeal like athletes and entertainers getting many of the sponsorship/ambassador jobs, so I don't think Nadal will be the only still-playing big name athlete to end up working for a site.

12 million € in 2 or 3 years looks enought to have one of the best tennis players in the world as ambassador

Wow. To get one of the top 10 sportsmen in the entire world to rep a poker site is a pretty incredible feat. I wonder how much $$ was involved in this.

Yes, if true this is a pretty sick signing from PokerStars. Certainly shows their commitment to the new Spanish market.

Adidas and Nike would be so cool...Can see it now a new $5M dollar ad showing various clips of the worlds best athletes training hard with sweat dripping of their bodies and then showing a clip of some overweight poker player who's chewing nicorette gum to starve away that craving for a cigarette he has every 15mins.

Just do it!

Tennis players span national boundaries. I am sure if Nadal is interested in Poker then why not.
