Russian tennis player Maria Sharapova is reportedly changing her name to Maria Sugarpova during the US Open. The temporary name change is part of a bizarre two-week publicity stunt meant to promote her candy company, called Sugarpova.
According to the Times, Sugarpova's logo -- "a pair of red lips" -- will also appear on Sharapova's uniform.
