25-year-old tennis pro and Russian beauty Maria Sharapova is a vision on the cover of Hamptons.
As successful as Sharapova already is, her success continues to grow. She told the magazine about her latest endeavor, Sugarpova: “My manager, whom I’ve been working with since I was 10 years old, brought this to the table, and I thought it was so funny and so creative. Over the past two years, I’ve loved the different flavors of gummys; I thought, ‘Why not put together something I could have as my own?’ To own something 100 percent is something that I really wanted to experience.”
Another experience the athlete recently had was the honor of carrying the Russian flag during the Olympic ceremony. She’s the very first woman to ever have that honor. “Pretty incredible; it’s such an honor. I grew up in Russia watching the Olympics — it was such a big part of our culture — and at that time, tennis wasn’t as popular (in Russia) as it is now. How big the sport is over there this year as opposed to when I was watching it as a young girl makes it extra special.”
