Who is Ally Baker ? (from the Reebok-commercial)

OK, according to her results, she is a quite promising young player.

But what's the reason that she is in that Reebok commercial with Andy Roddick ? Is she already famous in the US or what ? I can't imagine many people know her.

Yeah, it's weird. I don't know that Ally Baker, but, I don't understand Reebok has put her in that comercial having Venus on their files

I believe she is from Nashville, Tennessee. She is from a tennis family. I live in the US and I have heard nothing of her. The first time I heard of her was this week, reading a Sports Illustrated ad about her brother.

I did some research on her -

At this years French she fell in the first round to Maria Kirilenko, 1-6, 4-6.

She did reach the Semfinals of the Astrid Bowl, the round of 16 at the Banana Bowl, the Finals at the Gerdau Cup, the Semfinals of at Eddie Herr, the Quarters of the Chanda Rubin Closed to name a few.

If you go here, you can see her picture...

That advert is really weird! I thought it was Ashley Harkleroad at first.

I just don't know whether to like Andy or hate him, but you've gotta give him an A for effort. (is he cut or what?!)

I saw Baker play at the open qualies against Muller and her first round Junior girls match. She's a tall girl, (nearing 6 feet I think) and also has a very good serve. She really has come out of left field in the past 2 years with her rapid rise up the junior works. She possesses a good serve, as well as excellent touch at the net. From what I saw, I think her movement needs some minor readjusting (not fat at all, just a 1/2 step slow.) Also, she tends to spray her shots all over the court at times. I don't see her cracking the top 10 to be honest, but I can see her getting to the top 100 or top 75. Although she has potential, she'll probably be another member of the underachieving "blond bombshell" group
