Tennis - Spain's Garbine Muguruza has been on one of the breakout stars on the women's side this year and the 20-year-old has just bagged her first major endorsement deal.
Muguruza, currently ranked a career-high no.27 in the world, has been signed on by the Japanese automobile manufacturer Mazda as their new brand ambassador. Muguruza commented, "Having brands that want to work with you is one of the best perks of being successful on the tennis court.
I am very grateful to Mazda for becoming my first official partner off the tennis court and hope to be a part of the Mazda family for many years to come." The Spaniard reached the fourth round of the Australian Open in January and followed it up with her first Grand Slam quarter-final in Paris last month.
