He is world wide famous, loved by millions globally and travels all over the world. They have nothing to lose, and if anything can raise the level of debate surrounding poker to a new level in his country. He is adored there.

They, PS, would have nothing to lose (besides millions that could be used on other promos) but Phelps might lose money from other sponsors because of the idiot moral police in the USA. (Just like he had contracts slashed when he was photographed with a bong.)

PS would have to pay way over market price for Phelps' agent to recommend taking such a deal.

Is he going to be wearing a PS patch while he plays?

Awesome signing. I love Nadal.

GG Federer. Maybe Full Tilt will sponsor you.

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

Great news for the prospects of online poker moving forward imo. I think we will see some more main stream heavy hitters being signed on as we move closer to regulation in the US.

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

does make me wonder how much money stars must make when they can pay someone 9 million a year or so

I bet you he will hardly have to do much too, just a few tournaments here and there

None of this has been confirmed by Stars at all, but assuming the rumors are true...

Well its marketing, obviously they feel he will pay for himself in customer acquisitions. One of the biggest outgoings of PS I would guess is marketing. they obviously feel the name recognition and use of his likeness in advertising is going to be a good use of their marketing dollars.

If is he's going to be used mostly for PokerStars.ES marketing his English skills may not be so important. With that said he's such a big name internationally you would think his likeness would be used on dot.COM too.
