Sharapova items to be sold by hotel

UPI News Service, 12/24/2007 

Officials in Singapore say they will sell nearly every item used by Russian tennis star Maria Sharapova during her one-night stay at a hotel in the country.

Jerry Goh, organizer of Sharapova's Dec. 30 exhibition match against Russian Anna Chakvetadze, said every item used by the former Wimbledon and U.S. Open champion -- except the hotel room toilet seat -- will be sold to benefit charity, the Russian information agency Novosti reported Monday.

"Since there's an interest for products that Sharapova will use during her stay here, we want to do this tastefully," Goh said. "So no toilet seats or covers will be offered for auction."

Items to be sold after the visit include a swimming suit, towels, slippers, pillow cases and bed linens. Goh did not specify whether the items would be washed before the sale.

Sharapova was named the highest paid female athlete in the world last year with estimated earnings of $25 million.
