“Must talk about her achievements” – when Maria Sharapova blasts Serena Williams over shocking comments on a sensitive topic

Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova were two of the fiercest rivals of the time. The two had a rather strained relationship, given the comments they made about each other in the media. Maria Sharapova criticized Serena Williams in 2013 for her comments on a highly sensitive situation.

Serena Williams made surprising statements about the rape of a 16-year-old girl by two American high school football players. The American tennis legend had to apologize for her shocking comments, but Maria Sharapova did not retract her analysis of the situation.

Maria Sharapova stated that Serena Williams should just keep talking about her achievements in court rather than sparking such a controversial issue.

“I was absolutely upset when I heard what he had to say about the whole case. I think he should talk about his achievements, his achievements, rather than just anything that attracts attention and creates controversy.aforementioned Sharapova.

Serena Williams indirectly accused the 16-year-old of being irresponsible about her drinking. This comment was not liked by the audience as the American star later issued an apology on the same issue.

“I don’t blame the girl, but if you’re 16 and drunk like this, your parents should teach you – don’t drink from other people,” said Serena Williams.

At 16, why was he so drunk that he couldn’t remember? It could have been much worse. He is lucky. Honestly I don’t know, maybe she wasn’t a virgin, but she shouldn’t have put herself in that position unless they were slipping something on her, then that’s different,” he added.

In the past, Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova also made fun of each other’s love lives. The 23-time major champion commented on Maria Sharapova’s former relationship with Bulgarian tennis star Grigor Dimitrov. But Rus also didn’t hold back and reciprocated Serena Williams’ relationship with her coach Patrick Mouratoglo.

“If she wants to talk about something personal, maybe she should talk about her relationship and her boyfriend who is married, getting divorced, and has kids.” said Sharapova in the same interview.

“Talk about other things, but don’t draw attention to other things. There’s a lot of things in his life, a lot of positive things, and I think that’s what it’s supposed to be.” Russian loved it.
