Serena Williams Praises Maria Sharapova's Courage Amid Doping Scandal


Three years ago tennis star Maria Sharapova famously exposed Serena Williams' affair with her then married tennis coach Patrick Mouratoglou [click here if you missed that].

So its a bit surprising that Serena is practically the only person standing by Maria this week after her tennis rival admitting failing a drug test for banned substances...

Earlier this week Maria Sharapova held a press conference admitting she tested positive for a banned substance at the Australian Open [click here if you missed that].

Since her announcement Maria has lost over $11 million in endorsements from Nike, Porsche and Tag Heuer.

This week Serena Williams commended Maria for her courage in coming forward,
"I think most people were happy she was upfront and very honest and showed a lot of courage to admit to what she had done and what she had neglected to look at in terms of the list at the end of the year."
"It's just taking responsibility, which she admitted that she was willing to do and ready to do. Just hope for the best for everybody in that situation."

It's obvious most muscular grunting women are taking "something" to have that edge.

Does anyone think that the WTA hasn't been trying to find dirt on Serena and Venus for years? If they were doping, that info would have leaked YEARS ago. For as much money as they make off the Williams Sisters, professional tennis still hates their guts for being independent and making their own rules re: training, prize money distribution, etc.

Serena took the high road, and it's SO satisfying when your haters need your help.

^^^Agreed 11:14; I'da had no comment. I mean, who really gives a f*ck? They boosted her as the great white hope, she got caught doping, and STILL couldn't beat Serena. Meanwhile she got all the endorsements and shine, and was never in the same league as Serena, AND aired her out over her personal life? I'da let her ass twist in the damn wind.

^^^(Con't) And typical of the way this works, we have to take the 'high road'. Fuck that...I guess Serena had to listen to the white folks (including her man), and be what they love to call 'the bigger person'. Knowing full well if she'd been caught doping, they'd have torn her ass up.

See the big picture.

You're right 11:51/11:56...But Serena has to "play the game" with these people. And it's all really been a blessing in disguise because Sharapova has lost almost ALL of her endorsement deals, meanwhile Serena's HSN line is totally off the WTA grid, which has allowed for true independence. Go Serena!

Serena doesn't take any banned substances! She gets tested more than most of the women on tour. The she's randomly tested minimally 7 times a year. Even when she was injured and wasn't actively playing she was tested. The ITF gives a list of how often the players are tested.

Thank you, 12:26! People need to "Do their Googles" and come with facts!

@10:01 - Sharapova fans have been saying that same thing for years, and now look at 'em.

If you have evidence of Serena doping show it, if not you're just another loose-lipped, gossipy, hating son of a bitch running his/her mouth.
