The Connors mistake made her look like a fool and now days later she feels it's the perfect time to put her business first with this ridiculous name change, which will make her the butt of even more mockery.
Maybe at a different time and place, during a good run for Maria where she's winning tournaments and playing at an elite level, this kind of promotion would look cute, fun, and harmless. But after a Wimbledon flameout, 2 coaching changes, including the Connors mess, and winning only 1 match since early June, this looks beyond dumb.
When you watch how intense Serena and Vika were yesterday and how badly they want to win and how focused they are with their tennis and then you look at Maria and everything she's been up to lately in comparison, I just shake my head.
Maria Sugarpova? Are you kidding me?
I PRAY this is a hoax.
100% this. On the other hand, the only thing better than her just changing it, would be her winning the Open, and then having Sugarpova engraved forever to that trophy
