Tennis Star Formerly Known As Maria Sharapova Is Changing Her Name

Yes, that’s right.  In a surprising development, tennis star Maria Sharapova is changing her last name to “Sugarpova” in light of her new line of candies with the same name.


Looks like she is taking a page out of Chad Johnson’s questionable, yet entertaining book in order to promote her brand.  Don’t worry, it’s just for the U.S. Open.  Sharapova reportedly plans to change her name back at the conclusion of the tournament.
