Tennis - Serena Williams says she has already apologized to Maria Sharapova

Tennis - World no. 1 Serena Williams has said that she has already apologized to world no. 2 Maria Sharapova for making remarks about the Russian"s personal life in an interview to the Rolling Stones magazine. Williams commented on a top 5 player"s dating choices, apparently referring to Sharapova and Sharapova lambasted Serena in her pre-Wimbledon press conference yesterday, saying the American should focus on tennis.

Speaking to the press in London on Sunday, Serena commented, 的 feel like Maria, unfortunately, was inadvertently brought into a situation she should have never been brought into. I知 the first person to apologise. I知 the first person to reach out to individuals and people if I feel that something may have hurt them or something may have been misconstrued. 的 personally talked to Maria at the players party.

I said; 銑ook, I want to personally apologise to you if you are offended by being brought into my situation. I want to take this moment to just pour myself, be open, say I知 very sorry for this whole situation. We always have great conversations, so I believe that she definitely did accept it (the apology)." 的知 not really gonna comment on that (Sharapova痴 reaction), whether I知 disturbed or not.

I know she also said that I should definitely focus on the tennis here, and I feel like that is another thing I can definitely take her advice on. Maybe I wasn稚 focused enough in the past on tennis. I知 definitely going to try to focus on that for the next two weeks.
