Maria Sharapova Responds to Serena Williams Diss: Your Boyfriend Was Married


By Michael Lewittes



Maria Sharapova is responding to Serena Williams allegedly dissing her in Rolling Stone.

Williams had seemingly jabbed her fellow tennis star in a recent interview with the mag, saying, “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.”


Though she didn’t name Sharapova, the magazine guessed Williams was referring to her tennis rival, and speculated that the “black heart” comment was in reference to the fact that Sharapova is dating Williams’ rumored ex, tennis pro Grigor Dimitrov.

On Saturday, Sharapova hit back at Williams in a pre-Wimbleton press conference, slamming her for allegedly dating her tennis coach while he was still married.

“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 told reporters.


The tennis champ also said she was “sad” to hear about Williams’ controversial comments about the Steubenville rape case.
