Looks like Jay Z means business with his Roc Nation sports agency.
A little over a month after throwing his hat into the world of professional boxing, the Brooklyn, New York, emcee and mogul now has his sights set on tennis.
Yahoo Sports is reporting Hov’s team is attempting to woo 16-year-old prodigy Francis Tiafoe into coming aboard with his team. It’s being reported that Jay recently invited Tiafoe and his family to his Baltimore concert to make his pitch.
Tiafoe is currently the fifth ranked junior male player in the world. He is the youngest player ever to win it all at the Orange Bowl juniors event, taking the title in 2013. Previous winners of the prestigious Orange Bowl juniors event include John McEnroe, Roger Federer and Bjorn Borg. Tiafoe also took home the Easter Bowl junior championship this past April.
Once again,Jay Z appears to be ahead of the curve and two steps ahead of his competition.
