The most talented Serbian junior Filip Krajinovic has signed an exclusive clothing and shoe deal with Nike. Krajinovic, 16, is ranked #24 in the world in the ITF Junior Rankings and recently reached the semifinals at The Junior Wimbledon Championships.
He started playing tennis aged five. In 2007, aged fifteen, he started practising at Nick Bollettieri Tennis Academy, and he currently lives in Bradenton, Florida. Filip is managed by Olivier van Lindonk of IMG.
In the recent article published in British "The Independent"
, Nick Bollettieri said:
"One of the brighter prospects in Serbia's upcoming generation is another kid who left home to develop, again with us at the academy, and that's a 16-year-old boy called Filip Krajinovic, who I advise you to keep an eye on. He's going to be a hell of a player: impeccable groundstrokes, hits the ball hard and early, with little spin. He's got a two-handed backhand, moves well. He reminds me in a lot of ways of Andre Agassi, except Andre was not so comfortable at the net."
