Maria Sharapova posted pictures of her on Instagram a few days ago, wearing a cropped trench coat, tights and heels. Scrolling through the new images, here is a real charm. The beautiful Siberian tennis player, just before getting ready for the evening, was photographed wearing only a white bathrobe while she sipped a glass of bubbles.
Sharapova tells an anecdote about Serena Williams’ retirement
Serena Williams played the last matches of her career at the US Open 2022.
In the US Grand Slam, as well as the home tournament for Williams’ most successful sister, everything was ready for the former world number one to retire. A preparation that, however, slipped as the days went by, collecting victories against her opponents.
First against Kovinic in the first round, then against the number two seed Anett Kontaveit. Serena Williams, however, had to surrender against the Australian Ajla Tomljanovic in three sets. There have been numerous messages that the tennis players of the Tour have sent to the Queen of tennis for her withdrawal from her scenes.
From the current world number one, Iga Swiatek, to a recent doubles partner, Ons Jabeur. Not only current players, but also from the past: among these, there is also Maria Sharapova, one of the biggest rivals of the former US number one.
Rivals since Maria Sharapova entered the professional Tour, the former Russian tennis player spoke of Serena Williams and her retirement in Flushing Meadows. “It has been wonderful to see Serena’s path and the glory and gracious tenacity with which she has carried on his career,” the former world number one told ESPN about her rival, as reported by Sportskeeda.
The interview was released on the occasion of the two women’s semifinals of the US Open, where Maria Sharapova was present in the stands. The winner of five Grand Slam titles made a comparison between Serena Williams and the current generation, telling an anecdote dating back to last year’s Met Gala 2022, where they were both present.
She said: “We talked about this last year at this time of year and I told her, with no disrespect to this generation, that she was so much better and that she had to go out there, so I’m glad she had the chance. to do it here in New York.” Photo Credits: Maria Sharapova Instagram account
