well this topic went offtopic...
All these theories about publicity stunts, money & sponsors... I dont know WHAT YOU really WANT to believe about someone you follow - almost religiously - day by day.
(This doesnt want to be an attack, its just I dont understand the point of this. Entertaining your inner fandom? I'm not sure.)

She seems very smitten with him and travels and hangs out with him as much as possible.
To be consistantly successful on this tour and a top 10 player, you'd better eat, sleep, and breathe tennis. It's the selfish part of me talking, but I want Maria to play elite, championship tennis for the next 3 or 4 years and I want to continue seeing the drive and hunger from her to get better. But if she really falls for this guy, who's to say that her priorities might not shift. Sacrificing training and practice time to cultivate this relationship would hurt her.
Her happiness is all the matters in the end though, so we'll just have to see where this pairing goes.
You did not just compare the woman naming a whole candy line after herself and the other one who is carrying someone else's golfbag around... because that would be really stupid, completely different characters and personalities, but thats just my 2 cents.
