Hey, remember when Maria Sharapova was all pissed about having to fly to Rome to do a mandatory ad shoot for the WTA?  Well, she eventually worked something out and joined fellow stars Ana Ivanovic, Serena Williams, Jelena Jankovic, and, uhhh… some other women in the filming of a commercial that will air this summer during Wimbledon and the U.S. Open (text and video here).

WTA's ad opens with shots of the tennis stars dressed in casual attire in everyday situations. They then each receive phone calls, on sponsor Sony Ericsson's phones, and dash off superhero-like to re-emerge dressed for competition in their tennis outfits.

Yeah, it's supposed to be all superhero-y, but the voiceover definitely gives it a Charlie's Angels vibe.  And I mean that in a good way.  It's a cool 1970s Angels vibe, not a "McG-directed piece of shit after Demi Moore had $500K of plastic surgery" Angels vibe.
