Maria Sharapova Now on the Samsung Wagon


I’m not sure what it is about pro tennis player Maria Sharapova, but she has a thing for phones and phones seemingly have a thing for her. After having stints with the likes of Motorola and Sony Ericsson, Sharapova has signed on with Samsung for a three-year endorsement deal. We’re not sure how she’ll be used exactly. Sony Ericsson enjoyed a brief series of advertisements and video unboxing, as well as obligatory unveiling photos.

It’s hard to imagine her role with Samsung will be far from that. Unfortunately, her contract with Samsung is not particularly huge as it only covers activity in Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States (her home region). There’s a chance that things could break out of Russia, however, as her agent says her contract leaves room for growth into the global realm by next year. [Samsung Tomorrow, Bloomberg via The Verge]

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  3. She used to be hotter

    1. agreed.  those Russian/Eastern European chicks do not age well.  see Kornikova.

      1. p.s. here’s a tip for you younger kids out there.  before you get married – LOOK AT THE MOM.  because if her mom is ugly and/or fat, almost without exception – chances are that that’s what your future wife is going to look like.  LOOK AT THE MOM and ask yourself – is that what i want to be married to and chained to 20 years from now?  if the answer is NO – then RUN – RUN as fast as you can in the other direction and never look back.  remember this little piece of wisdom because it might just save you a lot of money and a lot of stress.  REMEMBER – LOOK AT THE MOM! don’t say you weren’t warned. good luck.

        1. not always true

      2. Kornikoba was just in a cover for February issue mag and she looked amazing. So she still has it!

      3. No, it’s just a dumb Sochi Winter Olympics suit. She only wears dark colors or whites. Never seen her in red before, and usually red doesn’t go with blonde well.

  4. I would have guessed a ski champion by this picture.

  5. Not bad, but she ain’t no Carly Foulkes.

  6. Bad picture she still got it, lol, but stay on 1 bandwagon darn it

    1. Why not? It’s not like she’s married into SE. Whith her scores lately, the more bandwagons the better.

  7. Not sure how that screaming banshee with her disgusting father will do Samsung any good?  

  8. love to see the sharipova detractors girlfriends. must all be 6 foot blondes with legs up to their necks but better looking LOL

  9. AKA the USSR. ;)
