Maria Sharapova is going into the candy business.

The four-time Grand Slam title winner launched her Sugarpova brand of 12 types of sweets on Monday.

At this year's French Open, which Sharapova won, she called Sugarpova "the most exciting project that I've ever done ... because it's my own business, my own investment, my own money."

Sharapova is ranked third heading into the U.S. Open, which starts next week.
