32. Funny tennis commercial from Hetnet. The ad is in Dutch, referee got annoyed during women’s tennis match due to their loud moaning.

33. Super amazing tennis commercial featuring Andrey Agassi, Steffi Graf and their kid. The ad is super amazing, alright, but I wonder, the poor kind, mountain of expectation that he will have to carry to prove himself. Oh…forgot to tell you, it’s a commercial from Genworth Financial, as they call it, it’s built on GE heritage.

34. Sony Cybershot TV commercial featuring Ana Ivanovic and Daniella Hantuchova. Nothing much to celebrate in this ad except the fact that it beautifully goes larger than life. Less tennis, more hollywood studio production, this ad

35. Super sexy tennis advert. (Caution: Visually not much but audio wise its not safe for work, get your earphone or mute it.)

  1. There was a really good tennis tv commercial a few years back. If I’m not mistaken it was for a sports related company. Birdseye/overhead shot of a woman serving, tight shot/close up, white dress, green court/service line. She tosses the ball, ball comes up, shot goes slo-mo, narration, then speeds up again; she makes contact with the ball, end of narration/ad.

    Not only was the ad effective–still pictured in my mind, nearly remember both distinct voice narration and visuals–the serve from toss to contact was a picture perfect service motion technique beginning to end. Even the tight look on her face as she made impact with the ball. Considering storyboard, composition, narration and execution–seen none better. It made its point…at impact. A visual delight–plus a good look at proper toss, racket preparation, swing, contact, body positions–toss, follow through…with “make contact/point” style narration. Loved it.
