Chalk up another endorsement for Maria Sharapova. The lovely tennis queen who has lucrative deals with Nike, Tag Heur and Cole Haan has been named Porsche’s global ambassador. A fancy title for “oh my god, here’s Maria looking sexy on the hood of a car.”

From her Facebook:

I am not good at keeping secrets but I did it for 3 months!! Today I am so proud to announce a new and exciting global partnership with Porsche. What an amazing honor to be their first global ambassador

In the world of female athlete endorsements, nobody comes close to Maria. Last year Forbes ranked her #16 on the list of highest paid athletes, regardless of gender. She’s parlayed her on-court success better than any of her predecessors.
