Maria Sharapova

We recently had a post about Maria Sharapova and her unwillingness to pose for a four-hour photo shoot for the WTA’s promotional machine. Apparently, both sides have reached an agreement, allowing Sharapova to avoid a fine the BBC reports as £153,000 — almost 300,000 US dollars.

On her personal site, reports were the fine could be in excess of $700,000.

Nevertheless, both sides have agreed and monies are being protected. To appease her association, Sharapova agreed to take part in a 90-minute shoot instead of the four-hour Vogue-like marathon. Whatever. As long as she does some pictures like the one leading this post, we’ll all be fine.

Compromise — even in women’s tennis — is a wonderful thing.
