Maria Sharapova Says Serena Williams Never Forgave Her For Beating Her At Wimbledon

Maria Sharapova Says Serena Williams Never Forgave Her For Beating Her At Wimbledon

Excerpts from Maria Sharapova‘s new memoir “Unstoppable: My Life So Far” have been revealed, and she wrote extensively about beating Serena Williams in the finals of Wimbledon at age 17.

After she beat her fellow tennis pro, she overheard Serena crying in the UK venue’s clubhouse after the match.

“I don’t think she’s ever forgiven me for it’ – witnessing this ‘low and vulnerable moment,” Maria wrote in her book (via Daily Mail). “I think Serena hated me for being the skinny kid who beat her, against all odds, at Wimbledon. I think she hated me for taking something that she believed belonged to her. I think she hated me for seeing her at her lowest moment. But mostly I think she hated me for hearing her cry. She’s never forgiven me for it.”

    and maybe she hasn’t, but guess what, who the fuck cares?

    Nobody cares you still aren’t nearly as accomplished as her and you seem to be the one pressed by it not her.

    This bitch is delusional, arrogant and petty.

    Sharapova is a lot less relevant than she realizes, as evidenced by the excitement that still remained after she got bounced from the U.S. Open. Whether she mentions Serena or not, she’ll NEVER approach her in terms of legacy. And she’ll forever have that doping stain as part of her career.

    You obviously hate Serena too as the lost Kourni

  • plez

    Serena is considered one the G.O.A.T female tennis players. It’s doubtful she cares what happen so long ago. But it is the only triumph Sharpova has ever had so it’s understandable that she go that route in her book. If Sharpova were truthful she should have written that Serena is probably angry because Sharpova gets millions of ad money just because she is a pretty blond certainly not because she win championships.

  • Bee

    Serena has 23 Grand Slams compared to Sharapovas 5.
    319 weeks at number one compared to Sharapovas 21.
    She has a millionaire (billionaire?) fiancee and a newborn baby, while Sharapova went on to be a disgraced doper still trying to make her comeback … sooooo… I’m pretty sure Serena hasn’t given her a second thought.
    Being upset after losing a match is no surprise. Sharapova trying to make it seem like Serena is out to get her and she’s this “skinny, poor little blonde girl” is ridiculous.

  • Honeybee

    Uh, Serena Williams probably doesn’t give a rat’s ass about Maria Sharapova (much like he rest of us), since she has beaten her 19 of the last 21 times they have played including 2 of their 3 times at Wimbledon. If she even notices Sharapova is in the universe, it might be because she began dating Grigor Dimitrov while he was still seeing Serena, which understandably caused some friction! So maybe she ought to concentrate on her own game and selling her dry ass bags of candy instead of dwelling on another athlete who is doing just fineπŸ€”πŸ˜’.

  • doris

    This druggist will do anything to sell her book. She just wants people to buy her book so they can read a paragraph about what a friend of hers said Serena said about her. Really. Needing attention so say Serena’s name. Bye Felicia. No buy Maria.

  • Shenanigans

    this is too funny. Like, you really think GOAT still thinks of you as a competitor? Ha Ha.

    Sharapova gets paid because she’s attractive, well spoken and is an excellent brand ambassador. Williams sisters are a couple of hood rats that run down old people because they think they’re so important to the world. Guess what, no one gives a flying F about your steroided asses.

    No that is grand slams you are referrring to, I mean that out of 21 head to head matches Serena has beaten her the last 19 times. Still whatever the matrix you use to judge Serena is way out of her class.

  • Sepherina Allard
