Maria Sharapova to change her name to 'Sugarpova' for tennis tournament

21 August 2013

Sharapova Maria Sharapova has revealed that she's going to change her surname to Sugarpova for the duration of the upcoming US Open, to promote a brand of sweets for a fortnight.

She will also wear the logo of the brand - which happens to be a pair of red lips - on her tennis kit.

If the grand slam committee and legal courts allow the name-change, she will be officially named Sugarpova by umpires and announcers during the tournament while she remains in the competition.

Of course, in the event she actually wins the tournament, she'll be forever linked to a brand of grotty toffees in the annals of history.

They better be paying her a boatload of money.

Are we going to see other players following this line of thinking? Andy Murray Mints? Gillette Venus Williams? Marin Cilic Bang? Alize Cornetto? Feel free to make your own bad marketing/tennis puns in the comments.

    Of course, in the event she actually wins the tournament, she’ll be forever linked to a brand of grotty toffees in the annals of history. Had to read this paragraph twice as I'm pretty sure I read it as anal. Now there's a thought

    Pretty sure the brand is actually hers - it's a business sideline she has been working on for a while
  • Hubba
    It could always be her stage name for when she takes a career change in to Pornos

    No need to now, as she's already got them all this publicity (Probably the plan all along)
  • Captain.Cretin
    Dont you mean "the anals of history"???
  • OlPeculier
    You do realise that this story is two days old, and she's changed her mind. Or in other words, got all the publicity she was looking for without actually doing much.

    The chances of her winning the US Open are slim at best...
  • Zeddy
    Slim?! She isn't even playing. She sucked one of her sweets too hard and put her shoulder out.

    @zeddy. It wasn't a sweet, it was my cock.
