Artist Bruce Sulzberg on painting Rafael Nadal

"Welcome to the tennis dot. Com Pot guest. I'm one of your host. Nina Pantic joined in this episode by my co host. Irena Falconi! Hey, guys! How's it going? And we have a very interesting episode of everyone today we are with the owner artists of cells media. Fine Arts Bruce Cells Bruce Welcome thank you, thank you so much for having me. Bruce? Do you have a very interesting story? I don't think a lot of people know it has to do with Ross doll. You don't usually have artists on our show, so that's why this is very unique and special you wanNA. Tell everyone story when it comes to tennis. Even if you're not a player or coach or tournament organizer, so let's start with you know where you are in the world during this quarantine and how your life is going these days, it's been very interesting. Interesting just like I would say probably ninety nine point. Nine percent of the world is trying to figure out what the hell you're. GonNa do during his time. you know the one fortunate part about it as being an artist, I've been locked in the studio painting new paintings and working with different ideas and working with RAF and his team Carlos Costa to figure out new and inventive ways to drive in bill business and do things that we are currently not used to doing. So it's been. It's been a wild interesting two months of figuring that out. What's your interest level tenants? Do you play? How did you get into this? US Fascinating I'm actually one of those weird concoctions of I'm an artist athletes so I was a big time athlete. As a kid played eight years of Baseball's all-star in baseball play basketball. I was all star in basketball. Basketball led me. Tennis I was a basketball player. Freshmen in highschool and kind of got into. An argument with my coach basically just decided to leave basketball. And I picked up a tennis racket and I had just. It was a natural thing for me to do. And before I knew I, had a professional coach, and my coach was played played on the tour and played John McEnroe. He saw me play and before I knew I was training with some of the best players in northern, California. And so I played high school career. played college and I still train. I still training a tribe while afford the pandemic I was out there every week. just started getting back out there about a week ago when they released the courts, but tennis is definitely in. My jeans had so much, so that my son plays college tennis. I'm actually had a scholarship to Chapman University as I used to play and made teams freshman, and he's also coach now, too, so and even though he still in college, but yes, definitely in my blood and strange enough. Raw Molly the owner of art encounter. That is my distributor. It turns out the way that we got this deal with him. Was He was tennis player in his whole family's sex players, and when he saw the original painting that I did have all sprouted in hadn't seen them in years we. She just freaked out. Saying Oh my God. This is unbelievable what I told him. I have five hundred signed by the dog himself. Personally and myself and we did a whole thing back in the day. When we have this painting, he's like. Nope, that's it. We're going to do something, so it's been a very unique tennis story all the way around. I can honestly say I think it's been a while that I've actually heard someone say that. They're both an athlete an artist. When was When was the moment where you're figured out like? Wow, I actually have a knack for this whole painting thing. That was easier. I I was asking rg by the time. I was five six seven years old. My parents had me in special school. Special Art schools and You know it was something that they noticed when I was one years old that I can draw and I'd actually kept first painting I drawing than I ever did when I was one and They just knew my dad was artist. He never followed that trade. Actually went into corporate business, but my dad is very artistic used to do paintings. So I kind of had that gene in me. And I just knew at a very early age. That was what I was going to do my life. We hear so much about young athletes figuring out their skill set at a young young age at like three, four five, and to see that art is very similar as interesting for those who don't know the story Bruce is the owner of Salzburg Media Fine Arts, a broad range of professional sports team three. Of National. International athletes he got three D work of Rafa. Nadal for those are not watching this on video. It's behind him, but it's also going to be a link in our episode information. He's also got artwork of Muhammad. Ali Michael Jordan Prince. Fielder Dirk Nowitzki. Irk Nowitzki I'm not a basketball person. I'm sorry. Most importantly. It's the tennis painting that we're really here to talk about, and it's Three D. art, so I want to start with what is three art. What's the process for making an artwork like this before we get into the Roth story? This was very unique idea. That I came up with lean back in nineteen, ninety five, I was doing my very first art show at the New York our next on back in those days that was the largest art show in the world. Everything was painter of any place anywhere was there exhibiting in was at the Jacob Javits in New York City, so as massive and I back then you the jury to get in so jury to get an shared a booth with another artist, and when I was there, all brought was abstract paintings on canvas, because that's what I was painting at the Time Big Love Klee Miro. Picasso, that was kind of backroom basically, and we've been in the show for five days and insult. Damn painting and I told. My My. Fiance at the time in my mom was there with me. I gotTa Take I. Just need to go walk the show and I said. You know if I'm going to do anything in my life I've got to figure out how to do something that no one has ever done and for some reason and it's time. My Dad owned art gallery. Very very successful one back in San Francisco. East Bay and I just something popped in my head. work on glass. Just a glass on the second I got home I started Phil around layers of plexiglas and low and behold. That's how it was born I. Just we just figured out how to frame it how to do the whole thing in. One, doing where usually as an artist you paying on one level is a canvas most most of the time. You're just doing everything on that level of what I wanted to do with cigarette how to take a look at an image of a painting in break it up and put different parts of each of painting on glass, and then use spicer's to separate them, so there's space in between each layer. You get that natural three d look with no gimmicks, no anything no lighting. It's all based on different layers and different perspectives, so that's how it was born and. The risk on history.

S. open still plan to start a schedule in late August early September and the French Open Nadal has won that tournament record twelve times has been rescheduled to the end of September stay tuned crimson lands will simply the number two running back and ESPN three hundred and the number twenty two prospect overall it gives claims in that night ESPN three hundred commitments of this class he ran over two thousand yards and at five hundred eighty yards receiving and forty two total touchdowns for Weddington high school in the state of North Carolina and those are just words in headlines even though it's been more than a week and a half give or take a lot of teams at the NFL draft and we still don't know what kind of NFL season that we're all going to see that doesn't mean the discussion of the conversation but the NFL is going to stop especially in a full schedule release date happening two days from now let's bring a metal plate office of line and that's football league for eight years does a great job as ESPN radio host and astute XM NFL holes are mad jokes was joining us in Freddie Fitzsimmons and ESPN radio before we get to all of that what was it like for Mrs Swarts your wife having her first prom at this works because we came with the with the targeting yeah I was a first alarm you're not going to want in high school it was fun but I I actually thought he was gonna do it differently that's all we have an adult problem afterwards but they were kind of hard with the kids up from four to seven so but we're just trying to find like North Carolina gets to phase one on Friday I think now I'm I'm North Carolina so we really have not been able to do very much to try to find it seem weekends one weekend we bought a yacht on Amazon call the fiesta and we like made tacos and the kids can yada we tried to like find different ways to least have some sort of activity look forward to on the weekends and so on Barton was probably put on a put my talks a Warner thing in a while she put on a dress with a layered two thousand eight and we just we had some like my son was one of Cox's two sizes too small discount we have around the house put it all on and danced a little bit and and a lot of fun here again normally long to now says a source back it's just it's incredible so we don't we got done it was fun I'm annoyed Jeremiah Johnson right now there to me I've had a hair cut and I haven't seen the beard I'm right there with you like eight weeks so this is I haven't worn anything close to a talks at the job I have not put on a pair of pants or shorts with a button seven point seven eight weeks not getting lower house I am the only cure my hair longer my beard gross because I haven't done any TV either it's been like I got a break of doing anything I went ahead to see people and so they look at you know what I'm actually getting tired I think providing going appear I can grow now I know I can so I kind of want to cut off my hair is given what I use for a point now where it's about I have one here before had in college I'm about a month away from it like really settling into like some nice warm hair but I just I'm kind of over it now come with a family years over time we just don't like it I'm ready for her cut but I don't think I'm I don't think I'm gonna have a a barber open for another two weeks but my bar was going to have to have the most business of all time with this thing opens up so I'm right there with him and believe me I'm I'm I'm I'm very close to going a level one across my entire we had just like pack with it's going to right there with you Hey give us your reaction to Andy Dalton signing it with the Dallas Cowboys because I love the the overreaction that is well this has Jerry Jones would leverage over dak Prescott your thoughts well not really I mean just a backup plan right and we know that it's a Porter have a backup quarterback we saw last year with not more women in those two games people on both sides of the conflict in two levels no one game difference right she's gone home field you know because of that so it's a point have a back up and it is great because it does provide us right now with the week long conversation writers not much talk about sports and leisure the bay on queen baseball like myself and this year's discipline there but it's a conversation and and I think that's what I've enjoyed about him signing up but look at that because because the start of our I've been of the opinion for a while now that there is something going on between the cowboys and doctor cannot reach an agreement if you look at Carson Wentz and Jared golf and potentially Pablo holds and Russell Wilson in waters all these guys and they work it out finally she congratulates all over the place I dialed and they walked out because they know they have to have long term agreement in place because it's better for team building and because it obviously is is better for morale my opinion both sides of the data team and the players well I don't think anyone's opinion or franchise tag will issue the team or the player for quarterback on the position that you would love your boss our franchise tax so I knew something going on there why this is not done yet account was not willing to give him last years or one twenty whatever it is why can't access yet it is something to the idea that something's going on I don't know what it is but also doesn't respect out of market in my opinion it all goes there to provide back up there was always going to be a couple quarterbacks left others cherish also first hundred forever like you were called to be a surplus of quarterbacks in NFL right wing since the backup or it was a back up don't go back up Judy cam Newton I I I I guess in the back of I don't know I mean who's going to sign him to start so I just think there's to record back and told me your lives in Dallas and going back home and you're struggling guaranteed one not great stuff I just want to play in the National Football League they use an offense sulaimon here money S. P. N. radio service XMB NFL channel and hit a month would adjust what's doing us and Freddie and Fitzsimmons on ESPN radio I'm gonna go back to Camden what you just said because Ian Fitzsimmons and I had this conversation I just last over the past couple weeks about what he's willing to accept we both agree he does not want to be a back up he wants to be a starting quarterback but I believe that perception about him has become too much of a reality that he does not want to accept Jeff what do you stand on that yeah I mean look if you look at where he is as clear definitely should be a starter right out the help of the concern I think that the valedictorians but healthy by here half of of all time and so I understand the you know teams are all worried about injury has yet you're compelled to scream at the camp want to stay healthy and right now without being able to really go check up on him the trouble is too smart to you but it's it's a valid license I guess team Justin also him I agree I don't see him as a backup and there really is no sweat you can call when when people say things like that like we do you know what you guys do kill it's a slight against him not really I mean dialers are composed of Plano on he grew up to become starter by far when healthy cardiovascular cell integrins are meant to be backups and that's for him it's fine it's okay he doesn't mention is a bad person or terrible teenage photos or even true he doesn't wanna be a backup I understand that but you might have to accept that unless Jacksonville is going to go a different direction I don't condone what once came over to work you will find very ready so I kind of left out of the rotation and so was always going to be in the camera now Jeff is the schedule release comes out on Thursday night how quickly explained to fans how quickly players when that schedule comes out you're scanning your schedule looking for that bye week and if you're or cold weather organization right where the cold weather you're going to be I'll quickly it's number one the person look for look for bye weeks Thursday night football cold weather games no current value gain if you have one and that's that's it right in your content because content all right I like twenty primetime games but after a while the committee yes we do currently they're quite nice they're gonna you know travel can be for specially if your good because the giants will help always when I was there but we at least some of support you order delayed on the tarmac we are going to get back until almost nine AM in walking house of planets like it's it's a long night sometimes Plano's world prime time games so some of us don't want to very much on it I think a lot of this was the sort of player one o'clock and be done with it those looking at bye week man follow your Thursday night one of those out I'd rather have Thursday week three four five a month I was about nine or ten and as we look at first I know it sounds odd but its schedule planning rights in your family knows Hey just one week I get my husband thank you bye I get my my dad back I'll get my salmon guy battle one of the case and we'll we'll get a mental break it's more mental anything else so don't look forward to is that is that first of the first bye week and yeah that's the first thing that we want to schedule scan with binoculars former NFL offensive lineman dot ESPN radio host on SiriusXM NFL.

"Careers. Michael Barr and Evan nobody William. thank you very much for joining us today we speak with blue shear the chief revenue officer of the United States tennis association we always chat with you with this time of year Jay I can't figure out why is this is there something going on. in August late August September that we should be talking about. that seems to be the case especially if your out in queens yes for two weeks yeah you get what I'm hearing my in box seems to tell me that attendance is on pace for a record this year that's correct we are we are having record breaking crowds opening day was the biggest we'd ever had without the largest Labor Day weekend we've ever had endorphin week festival the week before the U. S. open was a huge success where we open the grounds for free to the public all of the top players here practicing qualifying matches or or taking place we had three nine two concerts we have legends exhibitions matches and and we do almost a hundred and twenty thousand people that we I know people are interested in the big names in the night matches this is a big time town for a big event kind of thing I get it you want to see on ash Roger Federer Rafa Nadal I get it but do you folks know enough about that early time when they can come and roam the grounds for free and the outer courts and see all the qualifying do they know what do not people know about that. well we certainly saw growth this year and we've made big investments into that into that week crank at a Denny's initially years ago which is known as the the qualifying tournament but now we re branded it the ten week festival we've started to promote the ability to get up close and personal with the biggest names in the sport they all do featured practices for us on on our larger grandstand court you can watch Roger practice from twelve to two followed by Serena from from three to five whatever the case may be some of the biggest names in the history of the sport Andy Roddick Jim curry or Martina Navratilova all played John McEnroe all played exhibition matches during that week so we tried to mix in the opportunity to get close with the stars when they're more relaxed it's the week before the main draw begins and great tennis happening because you still have some of the best players in the world competing to to to get into the main draw I'm always impressed with the US open because just like Wimbledon you have so many big time celebrities that come see this event you turn your head all of us at all my goodness look who's here. this can you talk about that experience the US open you're all what's unique about tennis is all of the grand slams have different personalities if you will and and I think you know here the US open is is known as the spectacular slam were in New York the city that never sleeps the New York at the US open is an event and and we're we're fortunate that there is so much demand from celebrities of all walks of life not just Hollywood music business those sorts of things and and it's one of the things that makes the event collector and we're thrilled that that they come we we certainly have to unfortunately we have more demand that were able to to accommodate but many of them have great relationships with the players themselves the players or or global celebrities and and travel in in those circles and so you'll see celeb's employer boxes you'll see celebrities in court side seats you'll see them and sponsor locations it's part of the appeal of of the event who was the finance Titans that show up this is Bloomberg after all lower chatting with Lou sheer chief revenue officer of the U. S. TA give me some of those Wall Street names that frequently show up historically we've had Bill Gates we've had many of the bigger hedge fund folks here you know our our largest sponsors or or JP Morgan chase and American Express and and their clientele comes through here as well there's a huge huge demand for for tickets in many of them it's it's it's fun to see you'll you'll see them online at at concessions on the concourse which is a different experience than you would typically see almost anywhere else give me the experience of differences between let's say Jamie Dimon and the person sitting in the upper deck what I mean hi. yeah Michael bar hi N. hospitality is very very popular and a big revenue driver in sporting facilities these days. well it certainly is it's been a big part of what has driven the growth of the U. S. open we're fortunate we're here in New York every year we don't travel to different tennis clubs around the country in the way that golf does were able to invest in permanent facilities and and we cater to the highest level of of premium experience that we can possibly deliver but with that said understand that as an organization we are mission based we are a nonprofit that exists to grow the game of tennis and all of the proceeds off of the U. S. open or invested back at a grassroots level to grow the game one of the key components of that mission is to make sure that the U. S. open is accessible to everybody so I thought at the very very high and our best seat they're expensive I want to apologize for the fact that they are expensive they give me a dollar so you get what it what is what's the highest price ticket give me give me give me a number it may stretch as high as it is three to three thousand dollars for for a court judge he to the men's or women's final for example having said that access is critically important so that anybody that might have have an opportunity to be inspired to want to play has the opportunity to come out here so the fan week experience which is free for the entire week is one way to do that but you can also get a thirty dollar tickets in Arthur Ashe stadium and have access to the full ground here with seventeen competition court and find yourself sitting in the front row of the of a match that my teacher again some of the best players in the world that balance for us is always important yes we want to make sure that at the high level we're we're delivering value at a premium level for for those tickets but. providing access to anyone who may want to attend is is critical if it's different than the missions that that most other events but but we do that we do that intentionally now unfortunately for anybody running for Gnomeo soccer she is now out of the tournament the defending champion what it does mean that we're going to see another champion come along for this year so what is the impact when the defending champion I'm just curious in tennis when the defending champion is out there it doesn't really reflect anything attendance at all. no no no in fact you know one of the unique things about the U. S. open in most tennis events are stand by tickets not knowing who they're going to see play most of our tickets are sold well in advance of of the start of the tournament and we're not making decisions about tomorrow's order of play day session night session what courts people will play on until the day before right because it's all predicated on the results from from the previous day so if it doesn't impact attendance where you see the impact of of not necessarily defending champions Korea but some of the most popular stores going out Naomi is certainly one of those are typically on on TV ratings potentially up next we continue our conversation with Lou shear the chief revenue officer of the U. S. TA you are listening.

F. that are at the center of branding by now but it is not but he's not Nike anymore he's only tiger where in the T. W. had it just your your own initials on it just a little it's part of the the highest price but here here's the other thing with Federer Federer give AF path that you wear around definitely not I'm not a brand the Federer kids saying I don't know if you know this he's got four kids the two sets of twins how insane is that fertility drugs probably right I mean whoever it it doesn't matter we actually know people that have two sets of twins I think it's amazing all right and then if you go to Rafa Nadal here's the one thing I I do I do think that's and find fast my coach to twins in little league and they had two boys on my little league team were twins in their older brother and sister are also twins what yeah she had two sets of twins and one family boy girl twins have two boys and that's how the fetters or how about ration and all this was last year at the French Open he said this he said this endorsement deal with Richard mill who's a like a high end luxury watch guy the watch that he plays with working my Breitling yes No their Rolex this guy's like middle finger in with his toes to at the same time because it he was once the borders with the middle finger seven twenty five yes seven hundred twenty five thousand dollar watches what he plays with that's doing it five three US is Ivanek nurse that man no but it looked we're we're seeing what we saw today what we get to see tomorrow is Serena we're we're seeing the group to the greatest players of all time and what I what I've always considered I've talked about this before on the show is I I still think that Serena if she's not in the in the top American athlete of all time she's in a top three men and women I'm enjoying cocoa golf the fifteen year olds is a great she is going to be great I hope so I loved listening to that little girl talk about her her you know her around and playing in Wimbledon she's fifteen and we just the poise and just how how just incredibly eloquent she was talking about it which I still think what was amazing man Mike my kid at fifteen eight no anywhere close to that before like the days she was born Venus Williams already had four four grants him titles I think that's all well aid and she said Hey you know this the the Williams sisters are my heroes and they've they've pave the way for me let's take a time out I will niner can't coming up first practice report on the twenty sixth first practice is the twenty seventh and I'm gonna ask you do you want to see a little of Jimmy Garoppolo a lot of Jimmy Grawp low or no Jim the ground below in the pre season will hit.

He was the biggest star in the men's game, but you know what everyone does. It is not an honorable defense certainly not and is a little bit of, you know what people refer to as what aboutism. Loathe and isn't this a little bit of that? No, here's why. Because if you look statistically at the number of times any player, male or female has been penalized an entire game. You mean that huge penalty that huge penalty. Serena Williams. Got yeah. Once in thirty five hundred matches one other time in thirty five hundred tennis matches. You can't find a tip people to have tried to analyse statistically whether women get penalized like this more than men. The fact is nobody gets penalized the way she did. Nobody. So you know what that suggests to me is there was a clear bias on the part of this chair umpire. It was an unprecedented penalty. Do you think the Trump should continue to be in the game? You know, I, I do. I don't think drove pretty hard. No. I'm saying I think he did committed a real disservice and I think he led his bias, get the best of him on the court. Now, what sort of bias it is it could have been purely personal. I happen to think it was. It was biased towards women behaving that way on a court because he's presided over other matches where he didn't penalize Ruffin a doll for a full game. And Rafa Nadal came after him. Verbally said, you'll never Ruffin adult told him at the French Open. You'll never sit in the chair and another one of my matches, which is almost verbatim. One of the things Serena Williams said to him in the US open final. So then the match and and it's chaos and everyone's upset when they come out for the ceremony..

"All venture to say that some of you listening out there are making these mistakes and we don't want you to so we're going to help you that so we have a great show and i hope you'll stay tuned for the entire program i want to dive into something quickly here with you because i think there's a life lesson they're what my favorite player in the world right now is is roger federer and you know he's had a resurgence for those of you who aren't familiar he's thirty six now and he's back he's the best player in the world again and when he was younger and all that so now it's like wow it's incredible and the thing that he has changed his game that has brought him back to the top of the world is that he actually taught himself a new shot his big rival rafa nadal used to take advantage of him because federer used to slice backhand and he and federal taught himself three years ago to hit a down the line topspin backhand and now it's a major weapon so the moral of the life lesson of that is that no matter how successful you've been doing it one way and he could beat everybody in the world except it seemed like he taught himself a new thing and not only did he teach himself that but he put it in practice under pressure in a match you didn't revert back to you know his his tried and true there's a huge lesson they're week no matter how old you are in thirty six is not old but in the tennis world it is you know as an athlete it is and to be able to stop and say you know what i want to be better i want to improve i'm gonna learn something new i'm gonna plight in my life and i'm gonna give it one hundred percent then i think that's something we can all learn so if you're sixty seventy eighty there's never a time when you can stop learning when you can't learn something new implemented and make your life better so there's a huge life lesson they're there is no doubt so roger thank you for inspiring all of us now i wanna talk about what if we have a cyber attack now as you guys know i just mentioned earlier in the program that we believe that you.
