Sharapova unhappy with tour's pre-Rome demand

Maria Sharapova is using her blog to express her dissatisfaction with the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour's mandate that she do a four-hour (and, as Peter Bodo points out, a "four-hour" shoot lasts a lot longer than four hours) commercial shoot right before the Italian Open. She says that if she refuses, she will be fined more than $300,000.

Sharapova says that she is happy to do a video shoot to market the tour, but that she has a personal rule that does not do any type of shoot right before a tournament because she needs to focus on tennis.
