You`re seriously asking that question? I wonder if the player who's pushing cheap and unhealthy candy to make a quick buck is greedy....

loll you're really desperate to bash her if you're going with her side project. She's not hurting anyone with that business, she does whatever she wants off court, at least she's marketable enough to have a brand of her own. She doesn't need PR to make her somewhat looking professional or likable.

Re: PEAK Maria vs PEAK Vika

I wasn't the one who brought up greed. Fact is, Sharapova is by far the greediest of all current players, aside from porn she's pretty much doing absolutely everything she can to make a dime. I wasn't the one who brought this up but this is the one area where Sharapova stans really have to sit down...there's no bigger money-whore on tour.

Truth time: Do you guys really like this stuff and support it or do you secretly cringe as well? If it's the first then you have to be the most gullible sheeple ever

man you're hilarious, every big name in sports have sponsors and endorsement. Some have more than others but it's not cuz they are after them but because they receive tons load of offer. If you're a top athletes and you have no campaign or you're not endorsing any product you have some question to ask yourself. Sharapova is not putting her health on the line for money or for points. That's the biggest creed, to do something that might hurt you, how desperately trying to bash are you right now!? Vika has ran herself out of gas and has openly admitted playing tournaments while being injured or tired only to not get a 0 pointer or to pay a fine. That's greedy at some big level if you're willing to potentially seriously injured yourself. Especially if that same girl said she was so tired of injuries that she thought about retiring less than a year or so ago. How disrespectful is it to the fans and your fellow players as well. Don't you even consider Sharapova greedy if you're an Azarenka fan.

I see. Using your athlete image to push unhealthy candy = doing your job. Actually showing up at tour events and trying to play instead of just staying home = greedy. Makes total sense

And by the way, there are a ton of athletes out there who turn down offers and don't attach their name to every single thing just because it pays. Don't act like this is normal behavior because it isn't..she's doing it excessively.

Re: PEAK Maria vs PEAK Vika

Jimmie gurl whatever happened to you being 'sunshined 24/7'? Or was it just a phase? You pseudostanning and defending Miss Extremely Injured is not as fun.

LOL she's not promoting her candy for children to eat that all day. Everyone deserves a treat and that's what she's saying by selling those candies. I'm sure you hate her so much that you don't pay attention to what she's saying. You should know that if she was after money, she wouldn't be selling candies cuz I'm pretty sure there are many more products that make 10 times the money she receive from her sugarpova. Do you really think she says yes to every offers that she has? lmao you must be new to this. She actually refused more offer than she accepted.

Also Sharapova doesn't only withdraw, if she's on site she does everything asked, in Montreal when she withdrew she stayed on the site for a few days and did all the interview required. I don't think that giving a W/O in a second round or retiring midway through the 1 set of a 1st round is what a fan or a tournament wants. It's showing poor respect to your opponents and to the crowd who paid to see at least 1 hour of good quality tennis.

GO ask your old favorite number 1 Wozniacki about her bras

Okay it takes a lot to piss me off like seriousl but you've pretty much done just that and I don't give a flying fuck if you're trolling or not; actually dear god I hope you are because I cannot fathom how much of an ignoramus one can be

Everyone with half a brain knows that a year doesn't make a career. Everyone with half a brain knows this match up is on Maria's racquet. And bitch we all know your beloved faves track record when it comes to being tired and being extremely injured when she's losing. Also might I remind you that nobody gives a shit if Serena has less weeks at no. 1 than Hingis, nobody gives a shit that Venus has less weeks at no. 1 than Wozniaki/Davenport/Mauresmo, similar nobody gives a shit if Maria had less weeks at no. 1 than Vika.

And btw I love that "the thing of the past" won as many slams as Peak Vika.

You know what's really cute btw, for all this hype about PEAK Vika, the fact that if Clijsters had never gotten injured at this years AO Vika would still be slamless. I mean seriously, taking 3 sets to beat a hampered Clijsters lol okay I wonder if Vika would even reach a slam final if she played between 2000-2008 let alone win 3 slams

Run along now.

Please never stop posting. It's comedy gold.

If she was hungry for money Sugarpova's not the way to go. She invested her own money in it, was involved in the creative process, and the whole thing took a few years to put together. And it's no guaranteed success. I see it as a side project, as a way for her to put some of the boatloads of money she already has to use. With a majority of the brands that do endorse her (Nike and Cole Haan come to mind) she has either her own line or is involved in the creation of the products she's to endorse. Why be that involved if all you're out for is the pay up?

Plus, if it was all about the money do you really think she'd still be playing now? She's made it clear that even though she's clearly a smart businesswoman, her tennis career comes first to her. If she was some money-seeking mongrel it wouldn't be that way.

And what she does with her spare time is really none of my business, and I couldn't care less. It's nice to see that she's doing some good as far as the Chernobyl relief is concerned, but other than that I have no opinion whatsoever. I haven't tried Sugarpova, and I won't go out of my way to buy it because I'm a fan of her tennis more than anything else.

It's only available in select shops in select countries (if I'm not mistaken). You'd think a greedy individual would want it to be available to the masses
