that's a good thing cause that commercial screams "infomercial" ;) I almost didn't believe my eyes accept they repeated it again during the next break and I got a chance to hear her say "hi I'm Maria Sharapova"..:) Unfortunately, now that she's big they are going to run that commercial into the ground.

Yeah that commercial does play quite often. I wonder if the game is any fun.

I'm glad that commercial isn't on that often. I haven't seen it in a while. When I did see it, I was up really late on a Saturday night(before Wimbledon). It was weird because they have all these commercials that are adult oriented on that late at night. Like you know stupid hotlines called,"Sexy Singles or 1-800-Girl. And all the sudden I saw Sharapova on TV. She was playing I think badmiton and smiled at the screen and said something I don't remember much(very cheezy). But I do remember that she was really corny in the commercial, sorry. I was thinking please don't show this too much. If u guys saw it u probably know what I'm talking about. Now if she's gonna do commercials, they should be cool. Like Venus & Serena's, their funny and entertaining.

Maria or not...I´d love to try this "sport" out, it seems pretty fun and besides, I am addicted to every kind of racket sport (I was even good in table tennis;)), I´ve gotta buy it!

It seems like I am also addicted to commercials...damn it. Has anyone already played it?

It's just a gig she did a while ago...:) I've also seen the commercial and I have to admit it is a bit corny...;)
Anyway...She wasn't playing badminton...Speedminton is, I believe, a combination of tennis, badminton and squash...Anyway, there's lots of information on their official site...You can order starter kits and things like that...
Anyway...I'm sure the people behind Speedminton certainly didn't mind Maria winning Wimbledon...:)
