Maria Sharapova Claps Back At Serena: “She Should Talk About Her Boyfriend Who Was Married…”

At this rate, Wimbledon will be the talk of the town.

As you’ll recall, Serena Williams found herself in hot water earlier this week after an article in Rolling Stone was posted and contained Serena making ill-advised comments about the Steubenville case where a young lady was raped. In case you didn’t hear about it, Serena questioned why the young lady was drunk and why she “put herself in that position.” She came across as a rape apologist but later apologized for being misquoted.

Also in that interview, the writer makes note of a conversation Serena is having on the phone with her sister Venus where she’s being catty and talking about another top tennis player’s love life:

“There are people who live, breathe and dress tennis. I mean, seriously, give it a rest.” Serena exits the car and the conversation moves on to a top-five player who is now in love. “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.)

Eek. So while the writer is making an assumption about it being Maria Sharapova  that Serena is talking about, it does sound plausible.

Guess what? Word got back to Maria and she got Serena right on together (skip to 1:10 if you don’t want to watch the full clip):

Welp.  For those unaware, Serena has reportedly been dating her tennis coach Patrick Mouratoglou since last year…when he was still wearing his wedding ring. Maria’s comments were basically saying, “People in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones.”

Now, I don’t have a dog in this fight but it seems as though Serena was going through a “speak before I think” moment where it slipped her mind that there was someone recording everything she said. Either that, or she just didn’t care.

Either way, Wimbledon might be very interesting. Serena and Maria are on opposite sides of the draw and could meet in the finals. On the tennis court, Serena has owned Maria for quite some time but with all this new aggression, it could make a match very interesting.

What do you think about Serena and Maria’s comments?

    This whole thing is stupid. Maria left out the fact that Serena apologized to her for her name being put out there in Rolling Stone. I can image Serena giving a half-a$$ apology though, lol.

    I think it was wrong for the reporter to write down snippets of a private conversation, make assumptions about who Serena was talking about, and then print it like it was fact.

  • Janeen

    Maybe it has to do with where I’m from or how I was raised, but I NEVER entertain a comment made about me unless I hear it come straight from the horses mouth, and it’s said directly to my face. This “He said/She said in an interview/to their assistant/etc bullcrap just ends up getting everyone involved in trouble, and makes everyone look catty and stupid. Be an athlete, play the game, and SHUT UP.

    Really Maria? Serena bests you on the tennis court so you put her on front street. LOL.

    • Don

      Sorry 1Val,

      Serena started this and got what she deserved in return.

  • Guest360

    What in the world is going on? Up until this week you didn’t hear any highly opinionated sound bites from these two unless it was about the game. Maybe they should go back to that. Be seen and never heard because the second they opened their mouths, nothing but mess came out. Get it together please.

    ouch!

    Sloppy as hell on both sides…….

      Exactly. Nothing to be proud of here. Besides they sound like those sad chicks on Basketball Wives and they are the actual players. SMH.

      Exactly. Taking on court frustrations out on off court personal lives? What part of the game is this? It’s never cool to be a Petty Betty.
