Forget Brand Sharapova. Remember Sugarpova

The whisper was that she was retiring

But it turns out Maria Sharapova took the wrong drug

It’s fitting given her brand status that she was allowed to control the news release

Nike has dropped her, a Damascene Conversion

Sensing a Tiger like fall, Forbes rushes to put a dollar figure on her brand value

The point is not what she’s worth

It’s how she used her brand power when the world was watching

We’d all have taken Nike’s cash, or fronted Dolce e Gabbana if asked

To look in to the true meaning of Brand Sharapova, always remember Sugarpova
