The one-time Wimbledon champ has a killer forehand and a sweet tooth. In 2012, the tennis player launched Sugarpova, a premium gummy candy company. (Sharapova fell in love with gummies while in America as a kid.) It stocks its products in Henri Bendel, hotel minibars, and candy stores on three continents. Sharapova has long been building her business muscles off-court: She also has a handful of marketing deals, her own Cole-Haan accessory collection, and ambitions for a career in business post-retirement.
