Maria Sharapova urges the world to stay home. Patrick Dempsey and more stars joined

Maria Sharapova teamed up with other Porsche ambassadors like Grey’s Anatomy’s actor Patrick Dempsey and tennis stars Angelique Kerber and Julia Goerges to convince people that they need to stay home during the coronavirus pandemic.

“I recognize that this is an incredibly challenging time for all of us – all around the world.

But if there’s ever a time to collectively make an impact, it is now. Please stay home, especially if you have the capability to do so. Please take this seriously and listen to the authorities,” said Sharapova.
“I hope we can get back soon on court, so you’d better stay in shape.

I know it’s a difficult time for all of us, so keep in touch with friends and family by using new technology. And if you can, try to exercise at home,” said Angie Kerber. “Training is very important and there’s a lot one can do also at home like crunches, planks, push-ups and anything else that’s fun.

Just have a go,” said Sami Khedira. After Maria Sharapova and the other Porsche brand ambassadors ended their messages, Patrick Dempsey, the actor who’s best known for portraying Derek “McDreamy” Shepherd in Grey’s Anatomy, came with the ‘grand finale’: “We are all in this together.

I want to thank the doctors and the nurses, the people delivering the packages, the people who are stocking the grocery stores; Everyone who is doing a great job, either through providing for us, caring for us, we thank you”.
