“I want to personally apologize to you if you are offended by being brought into my situation.I want to take this moment to just pour myself, be open, say I’m very sorry for this whole situation.” In that discussion, Serena was said to have told Sharapova that she didn’t remember which player she was talking about during the interview.
That’s unclear for now but if Serena wants to call her [or possibly Azarenka] boring, or say that they both have bad taste in men, so what? People everywhere say that type of thing everyday, so why such a hullabaloo? “At the end of the day, we have a tremendous amount of respect for what we do on the court,” Sharapova said.
I’ll tell you why: because they are the two highest profile women athletes in the world and when they mix it up, it’s news. “I just think she should be talking about her accomplishments, her achievements, rather than everything else that’s just getting attention and controversy.
Right around the time that Dimitrov left Mouratoglou and hired Magus Norman’s Swedish team, he began dating Sharapova.
Is that why Serena’s allegedly tagged him as having a black heart, because he’s now dating her rival, or is it because something else occurred in their relationship prior to that?
So while she apologized for the article having drawn Sharapova into the discussion, she allegedly did not cop to saying it about Sharapova to Sharapova’s face at the party, which is why Sharapova had little trouble publicly going at Serena two days later in her press conference.
But Serena said that she is taking full responsibility for what she said and is willing to admit a wrong, even though there have been occasions in her career (i.e.
She has so much in her life, many positives, and I think that’s what it should be about.” Sharapova clearly thinks at least a couple of those comments were directed at her, but sources also say that Azarenka thinks one or two of them might have been directed at her, which would make sense given that the “she’s still not going to be invited to the cool parties” comment doesn’t seem to fit with Sharapova, who does get invited to cool parties, but more to Azarenka, who has been dating the pop star Redfoo but still is not yet as famous as Serena or Sharapova, so getting invited to A-List parties still might be a challenge for her, whether she cares to go or not.
But is that comment really scandalous or over the top?
Not so much, but what it does do is add spice to their rivalries and there is nothing wrong with competitors having digs at each other, as long as they aren’t mean-spirited.
Serena’s comment about the woman wanting to be with a guy with a black heart and Sharapova’s about being with a man with kids getting divorced both qualify as below the belt, so perhaps apologies are in order for both.
Williams said she apologized to Maria, but that was 2 days before Sharapova criticized her By Matt Cronin WIMBLEDON – What if players existed in a tennis world like many journalists do, where you publish what you mean to say and stand by it through thick and thin.
