I recently placed an order over at Dave and Adam's Cardworld and received a box of 2007 Ace Straight Sets for free. Now, I'm not going to sit here and profess my love for tennis. I own a racket and have played three or four times in the past decade, but that's about the extent of my fandom.
So why did I pick this product? Well... it's pretty simple actually. I wanted a shot at pulling this:
You don't have to be a tennis fan to know Maria Sharapova and the fact that she's smoking hot. Unfortunately, I didn't pull a card of her (hence the COMC image)... but here's a look at what I pulled out of my first pack:
#33 Robby Ginepri
Mr. Ginepri is currently ranked #283 on the ATP World Tour. According to Wikipedia, he participated on Spike TV's Pros vs. Joes with Rik Smits, Rob Dibble, and Andre Rison.
#AC5 Rafael Nadal
Outside of my guaranteed memorabilia card, this was the only other insert in the box and one of the few names I recognized in the product. Nadal is currently the 4th ranked male in the world.
#1 Ai Sugiyama
Believe it or not, this was one of my favorite cards in the box because it's actually going into my Japanese athlete binder. Sugiyama retired in 2009 and had a very successful doubles career.
#44 Aljoscha Thron
I've never heard of this guy and can't seem to find much about his tennis career. However, I did discover that 28% of the people who took this poll, think he's better looking than some guy named Sergey Demekhine.

Happy Sunday and sayonara!
