Sharapova Tells Williams To Pipe Down About Steubenville, Criticises Affair With Coach

In anticipation of the first rounds of Wimbledon, two of the world’s elite tennis players have been courting a new training regime dubbed ‘oral cardio’, or running one’s mouth

Serena Williams gave hers a good work out earlier this week when she partook of an exhausting spot of inadvertent victim blaming. Now candy magnate Maria Sharapova has followed suit by telling her nemesis to pipe down, girl, while making a sly dig at the world number one’s love life.
In what the AFP are describing as “an astonishing attack,” Sharapova, who hasn’t beaten Williams in nine years – so, sure, no hard feelings – remarked that she “was definitely sad to hear what she had to say about the whole case. 

I know everyone tries to create rivalries between us here and there. I just think she should be talking about her accomplishments, her achievements, rather than everything else that’s just getting attention and controversy.” 
Continues 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.” Ooh Maria, that’s basically like calling her ‘a home-wrecker,’ and adding ‘just sayin’ to soften the blow. AFP observes that Williams has been “linked romantically” to her once-married French coach Patrick Mouratoglou; and by linked they mean hand-in-jeans-ass-pocket-while-window-shopping linked. 
Talk about other things, but not draw attention to other things,” Sharapova posits somewhat confusingly. 
Nobody really cares about what I have to say,” says Sharapova. “If I speak to my friends, that’s one thing. But I don’t go out and try to create things that shouldn’t be really talked about,” she concludes, apparently with absolutely zero self-awareness.
Wimbledon starts tomorrow; until then, go forth and “talk about other things but not draw attention to other things” [sic], like fugly dogs, or joints as impromptu dentures – either one, ball’s in your court.
