CELEB JUNKIE: Is Sharapova the most hated woman in tennis?

When Maria Sharapova (26) said she doesn’t have many friends in the tennis world I didn’t feel so bad any more.

I want to like her, I really do, but I just can’t get past that sullen look on her oh-so-pretty face! So when I read that Maria Sharapova (26) has said she doesn’t have many friends in the tennis world I didn’t feel so bad any more. She also doesn’t seem to give a toss about her supporters. On arriving at the practice courts at Wimbledon this month, the leggy beauty walked straight past her hundreds of screaming fans asking for autographs, glaring at as many people as possible. So likeable, Maria.

You also want to make damn sure you don’t miss a game between her and Serena Williams – some highly varnished talons are sure to fly! The two have reportedly been at war off-court ever since Maria started dating Serena’s ex, handsome Bulgarian tennis player Grigor Dimitrov (22). The two girls have been throwing verbal pot shots at each other ever since.

Here’s a sample: without naming Maria, but clearly hinting at who she was talking about, Serena (31) told an interviewer about a top-five player who’s now in love, saying, “She begins every interview with ‘I’m so happy. I’m so lucky’. It’s so boring. She’s still not going to be invited to the cool parties.” Ouch.

Maria didn’t take that in silence, hitting back with, “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 [referring to the rumours Serena is dating her coach Patrick Mouratoglou].” Both girls went on to draw a grudging truce but you can bet they’ll be itching to even the score on the tennis court.
