  1. ESI-rg (Economics, Sports and Intangibles research group) By Francesc Pujol and Pedro Garcia-del-Barrio Money prizes and media value in tennis:who leads the spectacle?

We also gratefully acknowledge financial support from MEC: Spanish Ministerio de Ciencia y Tecnologia (SEJ2007-67295/ECON)

  3. Context The media value of players is a key intangible asset. ESI-rg – Universidad de Navarra has developed procedures to establishing homogeneous measures of intangible assets within the sport and spectacle industry. This paper applies ESI-rg methodology for analyzing the tennis industry of spectacle

  4. ESI-rg methodology has been broadly applied to: • Football (Spanish LFP, Champions League, World Cup in Germany) • Basketball (NBA and World Cup in Japan) • Formula 1 • ESI-rg data sets include also other fields: • US Baseball, Tour de France, English and Italian football, etc.

  5. Aims 1. Apply ESI-rg methodology for evaluating the media value of tennis players. 2. Analyse some aspects of this industry. 3. Estimate the relationship between sport performance and media value in tennis. 4. Explore if policies on money prizes could be more efficiently implemented (in accordance with the contribution of the agents who produce the spectacle).

  6. Data Sources:ESI-rg (authors own collection) WTA (http://www.sonyericssonwtatour.com) ATP (http://www.atptennis.com) Sample size: the 1,400 more relevant tennis players (700 at the WTA and 700 at the ATP). Periodicity: weekly records on notoriety (news) and popularity (presence at the Internet).

  7. Media Value 1. Degree of interest drawn by a player. 2. Is generated by the sport attainments as well as other personal characteristics of the player. 3. Create feelings of satisfaction, emulation, admiration, etc. 4. Is nourished through the mass media. 5. Influences the capacity of the player to generate revenues.

  8. Media Valueevaluation ESI-rg measure of media value is obtained through combination of the popularity and notoriety indexes. Popularity:degree of interestthattheplayerattractsfrom fans - Capturedbythenumber of web pageslinkedtotheplayer. Notoriety:degree of attentiondevotedtotheplayer in the media - Calculatedbythenumber of news in themainlanguages.

  9. Level of popularity reflects the interest that each player draws from the general public all around the world. • ESI-rg index of popularity • captured by the number of personal web pages, blogspots, specialized web pages of official sport institutions, commercial firms, etc. • Level of notorietyreflects the mass media exposure received by each player. • ESI-rg index of notoriety • calculated as the number of news generated by the player at each period of time in the main languages: English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Portuguese and Dutch.

  12. Evolution of Media Value (main tennis players, 2007)

  13. Media value concentration in Tennis

  14. Media value concentration in Tennis

  15. Concentration and winner-take-all hypothesis (Frank and Cook, 1995). • The huge degree of media value concentration indicates the existence of winner-take-all element. (The industry of tennis is a paradigmatic winner-take-all market). • Workers who are slightly better than their competitors become the winners of the market, earning much larger earnings than the others. (the wages of the former group exhibit a more than proportional magnitude with respect to its productivity).

  16. Factors generating Media Value in tennis 1.Media value levels stem from a number of sources, among which the sport achievement is a major factor: - Current sport performance (influence mainly through Notoriety) - Past sport success (impact especially on Popularity) 2. In markets like tennis spectacle, the level of notoriety and popularity is a major source of revenues. Hence, the following causal sequence can be stated: • Sport success  Media Value  Revenues

  17. Sport achievements and evolution of the notoriety (Roger Federer, 2007)

  18. Sport achievements and evolution of the notoriety (Rafael Nadal, 2007)

  19. Evolution of in Media Value (Andre Agassi, 2007)

  20. Evolution of in Media Value (Filippo Volandri, 2007)

  21. Other sources of Media Value in tennis The level of media value is determined by: Current sport performance, which attracts earnings through: gate revenues, merchandising, TV contracts, publicity, sponsorship, etc. Past sport performance, since there is a legacy element: players benefit from high WTA or ATP historical records. Number of tournaments in which the player participates in the current season. Otherpersonal characteristics of the individuals, including non sport-related factors.

  22. Sport performance and Media Value • Previous studies carried out by ESI-rg reveal a strong statistical relationship between sport success and media value. • ESI-rg report of the media value in Formula 1 recognized sport performance of the pilots as the key element to explain their media value. • (real and fitted values of media value in the estimated model were extremely close; the R-squared was very high). • Formula 1: Sport success  Media Value

  23. Real and predicted media value of Formula 1 pilots (2006) VM predicted

  24. Media Value and economic revenues • Previous studies conducted by ESI-rg show a strong statistical relationship between media value and revenues. (the media value is a major feature to generate revenues) • Reports on media value in Football released by ESI-rg show that the teams enrolling players with more talent (who possess special skills) benefit from larger economic rents. • Football: Media Value  Revenues

  25. Media Value and revenues of football clubs (2006) Total revenues

  26. Summary statistics of the regressions for WTA players

  33. Extensions of the paper: 1.Replicate the analysis of the media value model using (current and past) Prizes, instead of the WTA or ATP rank. (it will allow us running the regression for the whole sample, including jointly men and women). 2.Use the deviations from the predictions of the media value model as a way of estimating the non sport-related attractiveness of individual players.
