Li Na Named Global Ambassador For Mercedes-Benz, Relaxed Ahead Of Wimbledon

Roland Garros champion Li Na is already reaping the rewards of her historic win in Paris. She has signed a three year deal with Mercedes-Benz to be a global ambassador. This was an important deal for Mercedes-Benz, looking to increase its market in China. Currently, China has become the largest automobile market in the world. It is Mercedes-Benz’s third biggest market, behind the U.S. and Germany, but the growing upper class in China makes the allure of that market very enticing to automobile manufacturers. Li Na’s deal is said to be worth $1.5 million dollars per year. Her sponsorship money has now grown to $10 million dollars per year, independent of prize money. Despite all the fame and fortune spilling in, and the greater expectations going into Wimbledon, Li Na remains relaxed.
