Everyone recognizes that Maria is not in Serena's league (nobody is!).

For endorsements, okay, it is technically true, but it only tells us that Maria's business people are savvier than Serena's... and there's also the point that some of Serena's controversial behaviors and statements are probably hurting her marketability.

Anyway, the rabid hatred towards Maria that a fraction of Serena's fans are spewing in tennisforum is sickening.
