Maria Sharapova hits back at Serena Williams for '100 percent hearsay' comment about her autobiography
09 June, 2018, 18:24
- The American won her maiden Slam at the US Open previous year, beating close friend Madison Keys in the final. And when I broke her first game, I felt more confident and I felt I have the game in my hands.
Following her 70-minute defeat to Garbine Muguruza 6-2, 6-1 in the quarterfinals at Roland Garros on Wednesday, the Russian spent a portion of her press conference addressing criticism made by her rival about her autobiography, in which Williams claimed the book was "100 percent hearsay".
On Saturday, Sloane Stephens and Simona Halep will compete for the women's title.
The Romanian underlined that pedigree with a straight-sets scorching of Spaniard Muguruza-who is herself a daunting figure on clay.
Halep has been beaten in all of her previous Major final appearances, including at Roland Garros past year by Jelena Ostapenko. He was also able to raise his level when in danger, saving three break points in the eighth game of the third set with great shot-making, and four more in the final set.
After Williams withdrew from their scheduled fourth-round meeting at the French Open, Sharapova responded to Williams' criticism.
"It's always hard to play someone from your country, and such a good friend, so I'm pleased to get through that", said Stephens.
While Sharapova defends her inclusion of Williams due to the role she has played in the five-time Grand Slam champion's career, Williams was still disappointed.
"I have another chance to be in the final and hope to do better than past year". "It's very hard. I think more when I do play Madi, it's just - on the court it's very competitive".

"She was the aggressive one", Sharapova said.
George Bellshaw, Metro: "Halep arguably adapts best to players with big, heavy strokes". Halep does not possess the power of Keys, and Stephens has shown she is one of the best movers in the game. Whereas Halep has an unenviable record at the sharp end of majors. "It's pretty boring. I wish there was something exciting to tell you, but it's really not".
Backed by fans who loudly chanted her first name between games, Halep went ahead 3-0 with the help of only one victor.
She had never made it past the fourth round on the red clay of Paris until now.
You play as Sam, who returns to his (desolate) hometown of Basswood, West Virginia to attend the funeral of his best friend. The game does not now have a set release date at this time, though it is expected to arrive early 2019 on PlayStation 4.
The statement read, "It is with extraordinary sadness we can confirm the death of our friend and colleague, Anthony Bourdain ". Bourdain, born in New York City, had been open in the past about his history with substance abuse.
After a game like that I'm not in any position to talk about any of that. "I think we love to see each other succeed". I'll wake up Friday morning, I'll be locked in on the game plan and what needs to be done to help our team win.
