Turkish Airlines has pulled its Wozniacki commercials from Eurosport.

That stupid advert with the Woz and the chair umpire (ok, it was funny the 1st time I saw it) is nowhere to be seen on Eurosport in the USO lead-ups. Up until last month they were running it every half hour. It seems Turkish has realized that the Wozniacki brand is headed for the trash bin unless she pulls off a miracle turnaround at the USO. It's a bad situation for the WTA when the world #1 can't beat anyone in the Top 50.

Re: Turkish Airlines has pulled its Wozniacki commercials from Eurosport.

I loved that ad.

The umpire drooling at the Turkish Airlines food always made giggle.

And I thought it was cute that she was playing herself.

*hums the jingle*


^^^^ for all my ladies

Re: Turkish Airlines has pulled its Wozniacki commercials from Eurosport.

Maybe Woz should promote a more appropriate airline in her image, like RyanAir or EasyJet. Like, really crappy and useless most of the time.

For me it never was tbh
Plus, it looks as if Wozniacki's final winning shot in this commercial was a 1-metre out serve

Eurosport always has these catchy commercials like "Malaysia truly Asia". I almost feel like I should apply for citizenship or something.

- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a reigning world #1.
- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a top 5 player at a major.
- Caroline Wozniacki has not beaten a top 3 player en route to any of her 23 titles.
- Caroline Wozniacki has beaten two top 5 players en route to her 23 titles (#4 Zvonareva and #5 Schiavone)

-Her fans think she had very bad luck with her Grand Slam and Regular Tour draws.
