Re: Serena comments on Maria's withdrawal.
Serena Williams, who beat Samantha Stosur in three tough sets at the Sydney International on Sunday, said she was aware of Sharapova’s ongoing shoulder concerns.
“I know she’s been dealing with some injuries,” Williams said. “She’s been having a tough time. Everyone has tough injuries.”
Asked if she’d miss the challenge of playing Sharapova in Melbourne, Williams said: “I’m focused on the rest of the people and the rest of the draw.”
“I think my major threat, is like you see people today like Sam Stosur in that first-round match who are playing unbelievable and they want to do their best.”
That's cold.But the last part is kinda funny.
