“I think she hated me for seeing her at her lowest moment.”
Remember how Maria Sharapova took a W at Wimbledon, against Serena Williams, while on performance enhancers? Well, she won’t let you forget it.
Serena is enjoying her life. Outside of starring in Beyoncé videos, the athlete is enjoying motherhood and don’t forget covered Vanity Fair. No where has she left room for rumors of a rivalry towards her 2014 opponent.
But Maria’s singing a whole different tune. She documents her, what appears to be, an obsession with Serena in her memoir, Unstoppable: My Life So Far.
“I think Serena hated me for being the skinny kid who beat her, against all odds, at Wimbledon,” she muses in the book. “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.”
Whoa, slow down Sharapova…
Critic’s aren’t really feeling how the tennis player came for Williams either. More particularly, in this segment. Please note, Sharapova is taller and 5 years younger than Williams.:
“First of all her physical presence is much stronger and bigger than you realize watching TV,” Sharapova writes of meeting Williams for the first time. “She has thick arms and thick legs and is so intimidating and strong. It’s the whole thing—her presence, her confidence, her personality. Even now, she can make me feel like a little girl.”
The Daily Beast calls out Maria, saying her description is “vile ” and “racially tinged.” The writer, Ira Madison III, also calls her accusations “ludicrous.”
“The idea that Williams, who recently covered Vanity Fair, welcomed a new child into the world with her fiancé, and appeared in Beyoncé’s Lemonade, gives a fuck about Sharapova overhearing her cry 13 years ago is beyond ludicrous.”
Idk her memoir sounds more like she made her own burn book.
