What an Agent Does

Sam Duvall played high-level tennis as a junior outside of Louisville, Ky., and he played college tennis at Bates College. As a senior, Duvall had an internship at Octagon, a sports management firm. After several years at SFX, Duvall started his own firm, Topnotch Management. Colette Lewis of ZooTennis.com spoke with Duvall about many issues around sports management - and what advice he would give top juniors and their families. Story
