Maria Sharapova: Sharapova Expected to Develop Own Brand of Candy
Maria Sharapova Remains Highest Paid Female Athlete
Now that she's looking healthier than ever and coming off a big win on the Italian Open's clay court, the No. 7 ranked tennis player in the world has her eyes set on completing a career Grand Slam at the 2011 French Open.
A big reason for what drives her and what keeps her motivated is definitely that competitive nature. That also applies off the tennis court, the Russian-born beauty is reportedly dabbling into releasing her own brand of candy.
Expanding her reach into the unexpected, she is about to announce a new partnership with Jeff Rubin, the man who helped create Dylan’s Candy Bar in 2001 and a chain of candy shops inside F. A. O. Schwarz stores (called F. A. O. Schweetz) in the 1990s, to develop her own brand of candy and sweets. Gumballs will be shaped like tennis balls, and gummy candies will be packaged in containers shaped like tennis-ball cans, according to plans drawn up by Mr. Rubin, who hopes to have them ready in time for a rollout at thein August.
The name of her brand? Sugarpova.
There's a reason why Sharapova is the highest paid female athlete around. She makes smart decisions on and off the tennis court.
Whether it be her endorsement deals with Tag Heuer, Tiffany and Nike, she brings in plenty of money.
Should we surprised that she's trying to go into the candy market? A little.
But this new venture will probably give her another decent return.
Who wouldn't want to be chewing on some Maria Sharapova gumballs when they get a chance to do so?
