They've always despised eachother. I remember on the BBC's Wimbledon coverage a few years ago, they interviewed the owner of one of the most popular restaurants in Wimbledon village, and they said that if Serena and her entourage ever came in and saw Maria was eating in there, they'd immediately leave

From 3:00. "The Williams sisters and Sharapova...if Sharapova's in, they don't come in, but when she gets knocked out, they then appear"
She was way too fake-nice after the FO final this year to ever give the illusion she actually likes Maria
