Sabine & Xperia Hotshots

For the last few weeks, people have been encouraged on Facebook to "like" one of the 6 girls who were selected to be a Hotshot - Sabine of course being one of them.

When I looked last, Sabs was well ahead of the rest of the field, touching 60,000 followers, with nearest challenger Sori Cirstea on about 42,500. The rest out of it. (Is Twitter included also?)

However with the final stretch in sight, we are now being encouraged to vote for our favourite Hotshot. Deadline is 22 Aug if I recall correctly.

But I thought by "liking" a player's Facebook page, that was you voting for them. So is there a different voting system in place now? If so, what was the point of "liking" a particular player's page in the first place if it ultimately means nothing & it's all down to a final vote instead?

Maybe I'm easily confused - not difficult!!

Anyway, is it in the bag for Sabine?

Re: Sabine & Xperia Hotshots

It's all a bit confusing. What was the purpose of the whole thing I'm asking?

This Xperia Hot Shots series didn't really deliver on what it was promising when it was launched. Sabine for example had the fewest videos and really there was little behind the scenes insight into her. While there was plenty of Bethanie Mattek Sands and Dominika Cibulkova, probably too much. Sabine will win but it will be more from her achievements on the tennis court that has gained her a big fanbase than from anything special in these videos

I guess the Sony Ericsson people are happy that their Xperia phone gained more exposure from all this

Being an Xperia Hot Shot has been the best thing that's ever happened to me! My highlight of the campaign has got to be meeting David Guetta. I can't thank all of my fans and Sony Ericsson enough for their amazing support throughout the whole campaign - I wouldn't be here without them!

Re: Sabine & Xperia Hotshots

Expected, but

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.
Grammatikopoulou ~ Papamichail ~ Sakkari
I'm obsessed with the Greek players. Deal with it.
