Sharapova: Serena and I - we are not friends

full article

Maria Sharapova: 'Me and Serena Williams are not friends at all'


Quote:
'Serena and I should be friends: we love the same thing, we have the same passion. Only a few people in the world know what we know — what it feels like in the dead center of this storm, the fear and anger that drive you, how it is to win and how it is to lose.

But we are not friends — not at all. I think, to some extent, we have driven each other. Maybe that’s better than being friends. Maybe that’s what it takes to fire up the proper fury. Only when you have that intense antagonism can you find the strength to finish her off.

But who knows? Someday, when all this is in our past, maybe we’ll become friends. Or not. You never can tell.'
So obsessed with Queen.

"....to some extent, we have driven each other. Maybe that’s better than being friends. Maybe that’s what it takes to fire up the proper fury. Only when you have that intense antagonism can you find the strength to finish her off."

I think Sharapova is flattering herself here. Maria hasn't beaten Serena since 2004. Since then they've met 18 times and Serena has won every one, 15 times in straight sets, and has fed Maria 11 bakery products. I don't think Serena needs to get too fired up as clearly she doesn't have any problem finishing Maria off in matches.

First, pointless thread. We know.

Second, Sharapova thinking she played a role on making Serena better Gurl. She already had 6 Slams when you meet her the first time.

Re: Sharapova: Serena and I - we are not friends

I doubt Serena or any player would react kindly to Shazza claiming she helps drive her! She really is deluded and has an overinflated view. Serena was quite happily driven when Shazza wasn't playing! And they will NEVER be friends. I'd put savings on it. I can't imagine any top player wanting to associate themselves with her. Not before, and certainly not now. She really needs to belt up.

Re: Sharapova: Serena and I - we are not friends

Her constant attention seeking is pathetic at this point. The desperation to bring Serena so she gets some headlines when she is really no opponent for her

What else. It's from her own book.
