This WTA Tennis commercial, called “Sugar And Spice” and made one year ago, has been airing frequently of late and is the best presentation of women athletes I’ve ever seen. This particular commercial features Ana Ivanovic, Li Na, Caroline Wozniacki, Serena Williams, Vika Azarenka, and Kim Clijsters.
And if you want to keep score of who’s who, here’s the order: “sugar” is Ana Ivanovic, “spice” is Li Na, “sweat” is Caroline Wozniacki, “fury” is Serena Williams, “grit” is Vika Azarenka, and “strength” is Kim Clijsters.
The WTA explains:
The first phase of the campaign features superstars like The Queen of Soul, Grammy Award winner Aretha Franklin; Academy Award winning actress Susan Sarandon; English business magnate Sir Richard Branson; real estate mogul Donald Trump; Academy Award nominated actor and Emmy winner Stanley Tucci; Grammy award winning producer and the host of American Idol Randy Jackson; former member of Destiny’s Child and multiple Grammy award winning singer Kelly Rowland; Grammy Award winning superstar producer Timbaland; two-time major champion and No.1 golfer in 2012 Rory McIlroy; member of Girls Aloud and BRIT Award winner Nadine Coyle; Blue Bloods actress Bridget Moynahan; R&B singer Ciara; superstar DJ Bob Sinclar; and Tony award nominated star of American Idol Constantine Maroulis. Billie Jean King, founder of the WTA and a legendary pioneer of women’s rights, participated too.
WTA stars are also featured, including Maria Sharapova, Serena Williams, Kim Clijsters, Caroline Wozniacki, Li Na, Victoria Azarenka, Agnieszka Radwanska, Sam Stosur, Petra Kvitova, and Ana Ivanovic
They’re missing Sabine Lisicki, who would be “passion.”
