News Tech: NEW YORK (AP) — The tennis players’ association founded by Novak Djokovic and Vasek Pospisil two years ago appointed former NFL Players Inc. president Ahmad Nassar as its executive director and the CEO of a new for-profit affiliate to generate off-court commercial opportunities.

The affiliate, Winners Alliance, will seek licensing agreements for video games, trading cards and collectibles.

The Professional Tennis Players Association — or PTPA — announced the moves Thursday night, when the group held a meeting ahead of the start of the U.S. Open next week.

The PTPA also said it will start a program to help players get access to discounts for travel, among other things, and access to financial planners and support for discipline appeals.

Djokovic, who has 21 Grand Slam titles, was not able to travel to New York, and won’t play in the year’s last Grand Slam tournament, because he is not vaccinated against COVID-19.
