The highest-ranked Chinese player, Li Na, currently at career high of No.7, has become an ambassador of ice cream brand Haagen-Dazs. According to Wikipedia, Haagen-Dazs dates back to 1961 when two Polish immigrants established the brand in the Bronx, New York. Their first retail store was open in Brooklyn in 1976.
The glowing Li was part of a special ceremony and press conference in Beijing, together with her husband and coach, Jiang Shan.
Li’s status of Asia’s first Grand Slam singles finalist, earned at last month’s Australian Open, has landed her another sponsorship opportunity – a deal with Rolex is said to be awaiting Li. (source: WTA Tour)
