Tennis pinup girl and Wimbledon champion Maria Sharapova has signed a multi-year deal to represent Land Rover, and the company will debut its new ambassador at a gala VIP event this evening in New York.

Apparently Maria has had a passion for British SUVs for some time. (Who knew?) In her official statement the 18 year-old said, "When I won Wimbledon, I told myself, 'now I can have a Land Rover.' Now that I am driving myself I love the protection and style that this adds to my daily commute."
