New Docs -- Funny Biz in Federer Tennis Match?

10/15/2010 9:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The man suing IMG Prez Ted Forstmann claims he has new evidence proving Forstmann obtained inside info from Roger Federer before wagering on one of Federer's tennis matches. 


Jim Agate -- who owns the printing company suing IMG for gambling-connected tax losses --  filed phone records today with the court which he says prove Forstmann called Agate the night before the 2007 French Open final, and that Agate immediately called a Costa Rican betting service to place the bets. 

Agate also filed wager reports allegedly detailing the Federer bets. Ironically, Federer lost the '07 French Open to Rafael Nadal -- also an IMG client -- allegedly costing Forstmann a bundle. 

All tolled, Agate claims Forstmann lost $96,000 in the days surrounding the Federer/Nadal match ... and Agate filed a receipt for a $96,000 wire transfer to prove it -- money Agate says Forstmann paid him for the gambling losses.

Forstmann's rep, Michael Sitrick, tells TMZ the allegations that Federer gave inside information to Forstmann is an "absolute lie" made by a "desperate man."  Sitrick hasn't seen the documents Agate filed today, but says he wouldn't be surprised if they're phony.

Federer denies giving Forstmann any inside info about the match in question.

You're a 19 year old kid.

You're critically wounded and dying in
the jungle somewhere in the Central Highlands of Viet Nam .

It's November 11, 1967.
LZ (landing zone) X-ray.

Your unit is outnumbered 8-1 and the enemy fire is so intense, from 100 yards away, that your CO(commanding officer) has ordered the MedEvac helicopters to stop coming in.

You're lying there, listening to the enemy machine guns and you know you're not getting out.

Your family is half way around the world, 12,000 miles away, and you'll never see them again.

As the world starts to fade in and out, you know this is the day.

Then - over the machine gun noise - you faintly hear that sound of a helicopter.

You look up to see a Huey coming in. But ... It doesn't seem real because no MedEvac markings are on it.

Captain Ed Freeman is coming in for you.

He's not MedEvac so it's not his job, but he heard the radio call and decided he's flying his Huey down into the machine gun fire anyway.

Even after the MedEvacs were ordered
not to come. He's coming anyway.

And he drops it in and sits there in the machine gun fire, as they load 3 of you at a time on board.

Then he flies you up and out through the gunfire to the doctors and nurses and safety.

And, he kept coming back!! 13more times!! Until all the wounded were out. No one knew until the mission was over that the Captain had been hit 4 times in the legs and left arm.

He took 29 of you and your buddies out that day. Some would not have made it without the Captain and his Huey.

Medal of Honor Recipient,

Captain Ed Freeman, United States Air Force, died last Wednesday at the age of 70, in Boise, Idaho .

May God Bless and Rest His Soul.

I bet you didn't hear about this hero's passing, but we've sure seen a whole bunch about Lindsey Lohan and Tiger Woods.

Medal of Honor Winner Captain Ed Freeman

Shame on the American media !!!

$96k is peanuts in the game of tennis...let him go cry on someone elses shoulders..i don't see any proof...if you have ever watched federer play nadal, there is no clear winner..it just depends on how the game goes that day. I think the allegation is ridiculous..the printer just wants to get his name plastered all over TMZ

Federer's collapse is mystifying. And equally so is the body mass Rafael Nadal acquired in such a short time around that time period. Hmmmmm!

Roger wouldn't do something like that! It doesn't even make any sense as to why Roger would benefit from doing something like this.

What the?!?    

Let's see if I've got this straight... The agent losing a bundle is supposed to be proof he had inside information?! Isn't the purpose of getting inside info to WIN big, not lose big. Obviously any alleged info he got from Federer was WRONG!

Godspeed and God Bless Captain Freeman.

Federer like any pro sports star is in it for the money, of course he cheats. They ALL do. A-L-L. The only non cheat I can think of from recent Pro Sports is Pat Tillman.
