Maria Sharapova Wants A Sweet Name Change For The U.S. Open!

maria sharapova wants to change her name to sugarpova for us open

Athletes make SOOO much money from their sponsors, that they essentially become walking billboards during big events and tournaments.

But Maria Sharapova is planning on taking endorsement to a whole new level as she's actually considering changing her name to promote her very own candy line, Sugarpova!

According to sources, the tennis superstar is looking into the possibility of a "quickie name change" and has already contacted the Florida Supreme Court about her interesting inquiry!

If everything goes according to plan, she'll be referred to as Maria Sugarpova for the duration of the U.S. Open and will change her name back as soon as the tournament is over!

Maria has poured a lot of money into her sweet business venture, so it makes sense that she would want to promote it any way she could. But we're not quite sure how we feel about her sugary name change!

What about U, readers?? What do U think??

It's no secret that Maria Sharapova is one of the sexiest athletes on the planet, so when Shape magazine asked her and her bangin' bod to grace their cover, it wasn't really a surprise!

But how does she manage to always looks so amazing??

Well, Maria was nice enough to chat with us and give us some EXCLUSIVE insight on staying fit and what it was like to pose for Shape magazine!

The tennis superstar talked a little bit about getting ready for major tournaments, and she said it's all about getting in the right mindset:

"With any tournament it's about the preparation and being dedicated to practice and continuing to grow my game."

Alright, but what about those of us who probably won't be playing in the U.S. Open anytime soon? How do we get in shape??

She went on to say:

"Change up your workout routines but keep to your practice and training schedule."

Awesome!!!

Last but certainly not least, Maria talked a little bit about her cover shoot and getting a chance to show off her inner fashionista!

She said:

"Shape is about world of style meets sports so to be on the cover of the fall fashion issue is something that I’m thrilled to be a part of."

If there's anyone that knows about combining the world of fashion with the world of sports, it's Maria!!

And now that we have her tips on staying fit, we can get to work on getting our bodies in shape just like hers! Or at the very least we can try! LOLz!

Maria Sharapova Satisfies Her Need For Speed During A Porshe Photo Shoot!

| Filed under: ZportzMaria SharapovaTennis

maria sharapova poses with a porshe for photoshoot

Is there anything better than sexy women with fast cars?

The correct answer is obviously, "no!"

That's why the geniuses at Porshe decided to do a photo shoot with the lovely tennis superstar Maria Sharapova!

The Russian beauty posed with some seriously expensive fast cars in Manhattan Beach, and she made sure to wear some VERY short shorts to remind us all that she has some smokin' hot legs!

Thank goodness she didn't hurt them on those slippery courts at Wimbledon!

Maybe this was actually a bad choice by Porshe, because people might be too distracted by Maria to even notice there's a car in the background! LOLz!

That Grigor Dimitrov is one lucky guy!

maria sharapova says slippery grass courts at wimbledon are dangerous

It's been a bizarre year at Wimbledon as we've already seen TONS of shocking eliminations as players have been struggling to stay on their feet on the slippery grass courts, and Maria Sharapova is NOT happy about it!

The Russian tennis beauty ended up on her tush three separate times during her stunning loss to Michelle Larcher De Brito and even had to take a time out after buckling her knee!

Maria put a lot of the blame on

Maria Sharapova Bends It Like Beckham During Practice At Wimbledon!

maria sharapova shows off her soccer skills during practice at wimbledon

Uh-oh! It looks like Maria Sharapova may have forgotten how to play tennis!

Now, we're not the experts here, but isn't there usually a racket involved? And last time we checked, the ball was DEFINITELY not that big!!

Oh well! Maria's the pro, so we'll just have to trust that this is some sort of state-of-the-art training!

The Russian tennis beauty was spotted practicing for her next match at Wimbledon, when she decided to have a little bit of fun and ditched her racket to show off her soccer skills!!

The fact that she's kicking a volleyball around only adds to our confusion, but it's obviously working out for her as she was able to advance to the second round where she'll take on Michelle Larcher De Brito tomorrow!

Who knows, maybe next time we see Maria she'll be practicing her free throw shots to help her serve! LOLz!
