|Maria Sharapova, Serena Williams on court|
Maria Sharapova had her pre-Wimbledon press conference on Saturday and fired back at Serena Williams concerning what she said during a Rolling Stone interview.
Serena commented on an "anonymous" player, saying,
"There are people who live, breathe and dress tennis. I mean, seriously, give it a rest ...She begins every interview with 'I'm so happy. I'm so lucky' – it's so boring," says Serena in a loud voice. "She's still not going to be invited to the cool parties. And, hey, if she wants to be with the guy with a black heart, go for it." (An educated guess is she's talking about Sharapova, who is now dating Grigor Dimitrov, one of Serena's rumored exes).
Sharapova obviously took offense to what was said and let it be known that she wasn't so happy about it to the media on Saturday. She fires back saying;
"Obviously I have a tremendous amount of respect for Serena and what she's achieved on the court," Sharapova said. "If she wants to talk about something personal, maybe she should talk about her relationship and her boyfriend that was married and is getting a divorce and has kids. Talk about other things, but not draw attention to other things."
Yikes...The person in question that Sharapova seems to be talking about is Serena's coach, Patrick Mouratoglou who is reportedly also her boyfriend. Patrick is actually married with kids.
Well this is a first! This round one is a draw, so since they are heading into their biggest tennis tournament of the year, lets leave the final round to the court ladies... hehehehe
