NEW YORK, NY – In addition to champion tennis player, endorser, desinger, Maria Sharapova can now call herself “candy entrepreneur.” The Russian currently ranked No. 3 in the world launched her new candy line called “Sugarpova” on Fifth Avenue at Henri Bendel on Monday morning.
She has 12 different types of treats ranging from gummies to tennis ball gumballs. Her favorite is the candy called “quirky.” It’s a licorice filled with marshmallow inside with rainbow colors on the outside.
She said that she oversaw the development and production of the products as she wanted a “premium” line.
Listen to the short interview she did with Tennis Panorama.

Last night Maria Sharapova appeared on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon and instead of challenging her to table tennis, he challenged her to a game of beer pong!! Now, die-hard Masha fans, don't worry, Jimmy was kind enough to put root beer in her plastic cups because she is "in training" for the upcoming US Open (although I think she would have preferred the beer)....
