Maria Sharapova praises ´incredible´ Serena Williams

Maria Sharapova speaks on her career, adversary Serena Williams, Sugarpova and much more

Russian tennis superstar Maria Sharapova spoke in an interview with 'The Business of Celebrity', about premium candy line Sugarpova, which has gone viral worldwide, especially in India, U.S., Canada, Russia, China and Japan.

Sugarpova, is apparently, so near to the heart of Sharapova, that she even once decided to replace her surname 'Sharapova' with her candy name 'Sugarpova.'

"I considered it for quite a while," the Russian said. ""I wanted to do something fun and different. I mean that's what the whole candy line was all about, but I just realized that it is very difficult to change your last name. Sugarpova is the candy, although now I type in my last name and it autocorrects to Sugarpova."

Sharapova further said that she has been finding the right balance between her tennis career and Sugarpova.

"I think I've done a really good job in my career of balancing my career and my professionalism on the court, and doing what I have to do there. And then, when you get off it, expanding into other things, keeping your mind creative, working, you know I never had a typical education so I feel like I learn through so many things, whether it's business or advertising, too."

When asked about how long she would be playing on the tour, Sharapova said, "Time will tell, the body will tell. I certainly didn't think when I was 16 or 17 years old that when I am 26, I will still be playing but here I am and I still feel that I have quite a bit to go."

The former World Number one also talked about American Serena Williams, who has been dominating the women's circuit from quite a long time.

"I think Serena has done an incredible job on the court," she continued. "Her tennis has spoken for itself, in the last many years that she has competed. The amount of Grand Slams that she has been able to win, especially at her age now, still competing at the highest level and maybe her best level yet."
