After Andy Murray's Wimbledon victory yesterday, we look at British hopefuls looking to replicate his achievements.
Russian tennis star Maria Sharapova hopes to legally change her surname to Sugarpova for the duration of the US Open - to promote a brand of sweets, according to The Times (£).
The former world No. 1 has approached the Supreme Court of Florida about a “quickie” name-change, but would return to Sharapova after the two-week tournament, sources close to the 26 year old said.
Sharapova plans to wear the logo of the sweets brand - a pair of red lips - on her kit during the last grand slam of the year.
Should the court and the grand slam committee allow Sharapova to proceed, she could be introduced, addressed and have scores called out as Miss Sugarpova for as long as she remains in the event.

World No. 1 Djokovic had the chance to make history this week by becoming the first player to win all nine Masters titles.

The World number two was playing his first match since his historic Wimbledon win.
Serbian tennis star Viktor Troicki has been given an 18-month suspension for violating an anti-doping rule.
The 27-year-old failed to provide a blood sample during a tournament in Monte Carlo in April this year.
He claimed he had asked permission to be excused the blood test due to feeling unwell, but that explanation was rejected by the governing body.
Troicki is currently ranked 53 in the world and peaked at number 12 in 2011.
His suspension begins immediately and will end on January 24, 2015. Troicki must also forfeit all prize money and rankings points earned at the Monte Carlo Masters.
Andy Murray's victory was built on dedication and hard work on the clay courts of Spain. He apparently had a will to win from the age of three when he started playing in Scotland.
But, it was when he headed to Spain as a 15-year-old that the real improvement came. Our Sports reporter Natalie Pirks has been to the Sanchez-Casal Academy in Barcelona where a British champion was made.
