Has anyone else begun to feel that Maria has sold herself out?
She has only recently, and by recently i mean that last 2 years, come heavily into the spot light, and already she has deals with: -"Speedminton"
"Palmolive"
"Honda"
"Nike"
Just to name a few.
Come on, Seriously, that would be easily worth over 1mil in sponsorship $$. An 18yr old does not need that much money. It may even get to the stage where it effects her tennis, "OO i dont need to win, i can get money by putting my mug on a magazine cover". Thats a really bad attitude. Get over the sponsorships, and get back to playing tennis, make your money the hard way.
Fuck the corporations, FUCK THEM RIGHT IN THE EAR!

that is all

"OO i dont need to win, i can get money by putting my mug on a magazine cover".

Maria is nothing like that. Tennis is a matter of life and death for her. Everything else is secondary.

If someone offered you millions of dollars to stand around, smile, and do fuck all else, would you really turn it down?

I would prefer to see her doing less in terms of commercial things

she says sshe's not interested, but I think she is, subconciously. It will affect her tennis unless kept under control. I hope she doesn't get any more commercial obligations, because while she has totally the right attitude, her youthfulness (which is one of her main assets) may cause her to make mistakes. She's very mature, but as we saw at wimbledon in the post match interview, very youthful also.

She is not at the moment. She has a lot of Endorsements and i hope she doesnt get anymore she has enough for my liking. It is good though to have an outlet from tennis and when she is training and at tournaments thats her main goal to win and be the best. She is very strong minded about that and wont let anything stop her about being one of the best.

I believe Maria won't follow in Anna's footsteps.
She will show us her ability in the future, and improve herself.
I believe. :D
