"I heard Serena Williams Cry After Losing to Me and She Hasn't Forgiven Me For It".....Maria Sharapova


The former tennis star who is set to return back to Tennis later this week at the U.S. Open, is out with her biography, "Unstoppable......My Journey so Far". The memoir which is out Sept. 12, 2017, shared exclusively via DailyMail.
She talks about her early life in Russia, her humble beginnings, the world of Tennis, the doping scandal and of course her biggest rival in the world of Tennis....Serena Willaims. 
Excerpts.........

On What Tennis is to her……….
'Tennis is not a game. It's a sport and a puzzle, an endurance test you do whatever you can to win,' she says. 'It has been my enemy and my friend, my nightmare and the solace to that nightmare'.
ON life at elite tennis academy, IMG ………..

I tried to set myself apart. No emotion. No fear. Like ice. I was not friends with the other girls, because that would make me softer, easier to beat.

'They could have been the nicest girls in the world, and I wouldn't even have known it. I chose not to know it,' Maria writes

'My biggest edge is that persona'.

On the first time she met who would eventually become her biggest competition in Tennis……….Serena Williams and Sister Venus……

''For all the power, for all the intensity of their practice, I had just one thought: I want to beat them."
On hearing Serena Cry after her loss to her during a match in 2004.........
I don’t think she’s ever forgiven me for it’ – witnessing this ‘low and vulnerable moment. I think Serena hated me for being the skinny kid who beat her, against all odds, at Wimbledon. I think she hated me for taking something that she believed belonged to her. I think she hated me for seeing her at her lowest moment. But mostly I think she hated me for hearing her cry. She’s never forgiven me for it.
On her Impression of Serena........
First of all her physical presence is much stronger and bigger than you realize watching TV. She has thick arms and thick legs and is so intimidating and strong. It’s the whole thing – her presence, her confidence, her personality. Even now, she can make me feel like a little girl.


On how she felt when her doping scandal broke out…….

It was like a worm in my brain, just the worst kind of mindf**k. I'd never felt that way before,' she writes.

'Suddenly, no matter who I looked at, I found myself thinking: Do they think I'm a cheater? Do they think I'm a liar?'

'For the first time in my life, I was worried what people thought of me'.
