Maria's PR is not really good, it's a bad idea

It's embarrassing, for herself and for her fans. I'm not sure I could sit through a match of hers at the USO (first she has to make it to R3 ) if she goes through with this.

Re: ** Masha News and Articles! ** Vol. 3

This is one of the worst ideas I've ever heard, she would make herself and us all a laughing stock. I pray to god Max is paying attention to the reaction to this.

In fact, I'm hoping that's what it is - they're testing the waters to see how it would be received, and as the reaction has been overwhelmingly negative, it won't go ahead. Or as others have said, is just a publicity stunt that will *never* come to fruition.

Also, I doubt Nike would approve.

She wants to change her name to Sugarpova during US Open. Is this a joke or something?
just to point out the bottleneck in the article, IFAIK "Supreme Court of Florida" has no authority changing her name while she has russian citizenship and has a russian passport.
Of course she could just use an artist name, like some flop call themselves Lady Gaga or Madonna... but obviously USTA/ITF wouldnt allow that for simply commercial reasons. She needs an official namechange to force USTA/ITF accepting the change. But again, I dont know what "Supreme Court of Florida" can do in this case, especially now she is living in California, i dont know which state gives her green card or residence card...

Long story short, my understanding is she has to change her name in Russia.

Maria is not changing her passport, so no Russia. She is not changing even her US documents. She is asking a temporary permission to write her family name differently for a specific purpose limited within a specific time frame only.

Re: ** Masha News and Articles! ** Vol. 3

i think it is pathetic to change her name to Sugarpova, seriosly she should focus more on her tennis and not candies

No one said that, read again.

But she isnt citizen of the United States of America. She can use her "family name" whatever she wants right now for any purpose thats not a legal document, she doesnt need supreme court for that. Therefore its a ploy.

Re: ** Masha News and Articles! ** Vol. 3

This was the first time we heard of "Sugarpova":

http://www.tennisforum.com/showpost....postcount=2506

Quote:
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 the United States Open in August.

The name of her brand? Sugarpova.

http://www.nytimes.com/2011/05/26/fa...s-a-brand.html
Never imagined one day it would be her name.

Re: ** Masha News and Articles! ** Vol. 3

The one thing which really bothering me in this whole "Sugarpova" situation is that tennis was always a priority for Maria, no matter what has been around her, her off court stuff never get in her way of tennis. And now it seems like she wants to be known more like a candy producer than a tennis player. If she really goes on court at the USO as a "Maria Sugarpova" I will lose great amount of respect for her.

Could not agree more. I mean, how is anyone supposed to take you and your game seriously, if you change your last name to Sugarpova? If I hear the umpire utter game Sugarpova, I don't know whether I'll shit my pants laughing or facepalm for 10 minutes
