Rodrick was also alongside Williams while she was on the phone with sister Venus gossiping about another player, whom Rodrick believes to be Sharapova.
After chattering about their dad, they move on to gossip. As usual, Serena does most of the talking.
“There are people who live, breathe and dress tennis. I mean, seriously, give it a rest.” Serena exits the car and the conversation moves on to a top-five player who is now in love. “She begins every interview with ‘I’m so happy. I’m so lucky’ – it’s so boring,” says Serena in a loud voice. “She’s still not going to be invited to the cool parties. And, hey, if she wants to be with the guy with a black heart, go for it.” (An educated guess is she’s talking about Sharapova, who is now dating Grigor Dimitrov, one of Serena’s rumored exes.)
Williams said she believes Sharapova accepted her apology, but the Russian’s comments at a news conference Saturday suggest otherwise. Sharapova said Williams should be more concerned about her own personal life rather than her colleagues’.
“If she wants to talk about something personal, maybe she should talk about her relationship and her boyfriend that was married and is getting a divorce and has kids,” Sharapova said, referring to Serena’s unconfirmed relationship with her coach/consultant Patrick Mouratoglou.
“Talk about other things, but not draw attention to other things. She has so much in her life, many positives, and I think that’s what it should be about.”Oooh! Juicy!
What must it be like to their boyfriends? I wonder. That said, why don't we just enjoy the booty-tacularness of Serena, and the willowy-Russianessence of Maria below.
