The Open GDF SUEZ headliner Maria Sharapova eased into the quarterfinals, after her first-round bye, with a 6-0 6-1 victory over Daniela Hantuchova. A nice start, given the Russian’s hip injury troubles at the Australian Open. Sharapova is now 9-1 against the world No.31 Hantuchova.
Sharapova is the top seed at the event, but she didn’t travel to Paris just to play tennis, she also came to spread her sweet empire in the French capital and like all the good marketers she made sure to offer free Sugarpova during the post-match press conference. Women’s Tennis Blog’s photographer Jimmie48 was right there, getting his sugar fix. I strongly recommend you to follow him on Twitter for live photo coverage from the Open GDF SUEZ!
Fashion info: Sharapova is wearing her Australian Open outfit – the Nike Premier Maria Tunic Dress.
