Just ahead of Wimbledon, Maria Sharapova signed a multiyear agreement with Groupe Danone SA’s Evian water brand, and will be the face of their Rollerbabies campaign.
For the world famous campaign, Sharapova is wearing a t-shirt with a printed figure of a baby and a bottle of Evian water. Sharapova was chosen by the brand because she embodies the Live Young motto of Evian’s philosophy.
Evian is the sponsor of all the three Grand Slams Sharapova has won in her career – Wimbledon, the US Open and the Australian Open – and the Russian will promote Evian at all the three.
I have only one regret about this – why didn’t Evian pick JJ? SHE was the one washing her face and teeth solely with Evian water on her first visit to India, Bangalore in particular, and spoke about it publicly. (sources: Great Tennis Photos, Sony Ericsson WTA Tour)
