Maria Sharapova: Beef with Serena Williams is behind us
Sharapova spoke with The Wall Street Journal in August about her candy line, and the subject of her beef with Serena came up. Sharapova was reluctant to speak about the topic and kept her response brief.
“We haven’t spoken too much about it,” she told The Wall Street Journal. “But we did [put it behind us]. We left a lot of what had happened in London.”
In case you forgot, Sharapova and Serena went at it before Wimbledon. Serena started it by taking subtle shots at Sharapova in a Rolling Stone article. Sharapova fired back by telling Serena to stick to her business and by calling out Williams’ relationship with her coach. Both players lost early in the tournament, while Marion Bartoli won it.
Though Maria says the beef is behind them, we think there is still friction between the two. Unfortunately they have not played each other since then. Sharapova has been out with a shoulder injury, though we could take a guess at how the match would go; Williams is 14-2 against Sharapova and has won every match they’ve played since 2005.
