Maybe the Newport Beach Breakers and staff will sing, "She's so pretty," when Maria Sharapova walks through the Newport Beach Country Club this summer.
Regardless if they mimic a Nike commercial or not, they'll assuredly be smiling as Sharapova will join the Breakers for one date: July 16. That's when the world's No. 2-ranked player will be with the Breakers when they go up against the Kansas City Explorers, it was announced Wednesday.
Sharapova, who won Wimbledon in 2004, played for the Breakers 2003-05.
"We are proud to welcome Maria Sharapova back with the Breakers and we are happy to provide our Southern California tennis fans with the opportunity to support one of the preeminent players in women's tennis," Jeff Purser, the Breakers' executive director, said in a press release.
