Alright, what's the deal with a Swiss Company hiring Martina to advertise for their household items like Washing Machines and dryers and such? I never pictured Hingis as the type to take care of her own things like that. So I find this humoring. :lol:

Looks good. Lots of sweaty clothes, Roland garros coloured sand on clothes pics, horse hairs, action shots of horse jumping with mud flying, cut to official function in designer outfit, right age for people buying their first washingmachine, well known, popular. Seems a sensible choice. doubt if her mum still does her washing?

I think her mom probably still does her washing, and if her mother doesn't I'm sure with all of Hingis' money she has a maid to take care of such things. It's just odd, I guess she's one of the most popular faces in Switzerland thou.
I just wonder if Von Zug is a brand like Whirlpool here in the States? :lol:

Ahhh! the new "Domestic Goddess" Martina....:hearts: Why not:confused: She's a grown lady now with her own house located in Hurden, Switzerland (recenty new purchase) and I assume she occupies the home with Stefan her boyfriend (when he isn't skiing) sooooo there's lots of sweaty ski clothes, mud splattered riding duds, and other unmentionables:rolleyes: Sure, why wouldn't she do her own washing....the machine does it all!! She doesn't have to take it to a river and pound the crap out of it with a rock!!:rolleyes: Happy washing Marti!!:hearts: :kiss:

Hingis is nasty-looking and she will do anything for money.

If I was in a position to advertise a product, I would defenitly ask Martina. She has the look and personality. She also laundry that needs to be done, so why not? Go for it Martina!

Why do the house hold appliances in Europe always look nicer than those we have in the US? :( I need a new washer/dryer, but I haven't found any I like her except that one that's supposed to wash it like the ocean.... I'm even afraid to go look at the price on those thou! :lol:

I think it is incredibly ironic that Hingis has become more popular now that she has retired. If I were the CEO of that company, I would definitely pick Martina as a spokesperson. She is a role model for young women, very pretty and at an age group that is starting to take responsibility for themselves. Good move by this company.

BTW, she looks great in these pics.

Marti gets far more posts in the Suisse Section here than all her (female) Compatriots Combined. (Even counting the Scandal Stories About Another one)! :lol: (And her Own Official site is quite Active As well).

Agreed! And you know what they say about girls and vibrating washing machines.....!

If I've got this right, Martina is going to have commercials in French, German, and Italian. She's going to speak in all the languages. :)

Die TV-Spots wurden im O-Ton-Verfahren produziert, was ein volltonsicheres Studio erforderte und für Martina Hingis bedeutete, dass sie mit dem Text in Deutsch, Französisch und Italienisch vertraut sein musste. Die Freude an der Aufgabe ist ihr in allen Versionen anzumerken. Umso besser hilft sie eine Kommunikationsregel umzusetzen, die gerade bei technischen Produkten richtig und wichtig ist: Der schnellste Weg ins Hirn führt übers Herz.

I see nothing wrong with it. Nearly all Belgian tennis players have been part of the campaign to collect used batteries instead of just throwing them in the trash. I highly doubt Kim has ever had to look after her won trash/batteries.

That's a great pic of Martina.

It looks great. It fits her style. If a washing machines advertising had a Serena pic, i would think "this stuff is going to tore my clothes". Serena would be great for fitness equipment.

One shouldn't be surprised at the few and 'bad' advertising opportunities that are available to washed up players. Martina looks great in the pics by the way. :)

it's a true observation about the number of posts JR but i personally just don't see it, honestly if there has ever been a more dull WTA "star" than Hingis i can not think of who it might be. She bored me to death when she was playing and even more so now.
