After her 29th WTA singles title success, Maria Sharapova found time to drop by in Moscow.

The one-day trip saw the Russian tennis ace presenting “Shugarpova’’ to the Russian market on Monday.

While on the sojourn, she said tennis is still the most important for her despite her multiple business ventures.

The world No. 2 spoke to reporters at an upscale Moscow store, where a small pack of “Shugarpova’’ sweets is sold for 175 roubles ($5.66).

Sharapova, who turned 26 this month, said she still plans to compete at the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.

“(The London Olympics) was a good experience for me. I got a chance to carry the Russian flag at the opening ceremony and winning a silver medal,” she said.

“But now I want more, I hope to get the gold in 2016.”

Sharapova kept her Stuttgart title by beating China’s Li Na in Sunday’s final on clay as she continued her preparations for next month’s French Open where she will defend her crown.
