Sharapova sends verbal shot Serena Williams's way

Tools

LONDON (AP) — Maria Sharapova took quite a shot at Serena Williams — and it had nothing to do with tennis.

At her pre-Wimbledon news conference Saturday, Sharapova was asked about a recent Rolling Stone article where the author surmised that critical comments directed at an unnamed player by Williams were referring to Sharapova.

Said Sharapova: "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."

Among Williams' comments in the story, posted online Tuesday: "If she wants to be with the guy with a black heart, go for it."

Sharapova beat Williams in the 2004 Wimbledon final. But Williams has won their past 13 matches, including the French Open final two weeks ago.
