Me too.

I've got nothing against Anna. When I've seen her play, I've always wondered why she hasn't won a title because I can SEE talent.

Anyway, I wanted to get that out in case anyone sees this as critical...

But why would they use a Marilyn Monroe image? I mean, by no stretch of the imagination is Anna K Monroe-esque. The marketing firm should have thought of a better gimic, something more fitting for Anna.

But good for her. That's the second commercial I've seen her in - the other was the financial one.

I love tennis commercials But we get shown so few here in Australia I doubt we'll get to see this one either.

My favourite was Anna and Martina playing doubles tennis in a nightclub sort of place with other people standing around watching and dancing

I'm in Australia, and tennis is probably in the top 3 in most played sports, probably after AFL Football, and maybe Basketball.
But, apart from the odd one during the Australian Open, I can't remember the last time I've seen an ad for tennis.
Probably the one were Hingis was hitting a tennis ball thru that town.
And I also remember the Nite Club one with Hingis and Kournikova, but they were both a long time ago.
I'm surprised the 'new balls please' ads never came down here.
Soccer and Basketball seen to be the sports that are advertised down here. The stupid thing is, Basketball is not broadcast at all on free to air TV, and very little Soccer is shown either.
If you want to see those sports, Cable is really the only way, whereas tennis, mostly the Grand Slam are always show live.
So network executives must have stuff up bad.

*connects tv to digital with IMMENSE urgency just to see adverts*

I wish they'd show em on terrestrial cos the last tennis'y advert I saw was the Sampras Agassi thingy in the middle of Times Square (I think)

Or was it that daft one where they neer stopped playing ONE POINT...

YOU HAVEN'T HEARD THE LAST FROM ME!
Because I'm still talking! That's right!

Wasteful, pointless randomness for your amusement.

I saw the new ad the other day. It's ok, nothing to write home about though.

I never saw the Martina in traffic one, but it sounds pretty funny if people were slagging her off in it!

Regarding the Martina in traffic one: people weren't slagging her off, they were slagging off the one short sleeved shirt. Remember? But I think they were saying she made it look good or something like that. It was set in the streets of Rome I think.

Also the Monroe ad with Anna, I hope they show that in Sydney too, Ajayares. I don't see why they would only have it in Melbourne.

Yes I know the nightclub was really popular, I don't know why they don't show it anymore!

OK I saw this last night... I must admit if I didn't know about this before, I wouldn't have known it was Anna!

I think the ad was alright. The concepts and ideas were good, except the execution could've been better. I think Anna needed to be totally monroe or totally originally. She was in the middle and didn't really suit it. I thought the blue dress was horrible too.
