May you constantly whip your perceived non existent rivals constantly into submission like the way Serena Williams thrashes Maria Sharapova every time.— Michael Oti Adjei (@OtiAdjei) August 27, 2019
Maria Sharapova has as much of a rivalry with Serena Williams as I do.— Kevín (@KevOnStage) August 27, 2019
Serena Williams processed Maria Sharapova 6-1; 6-1 in 59 mins! There's no rivalry here! 😂😂😂— Mbathane Matshaya (@MbataneMatshaya) August 27, 2019
I still cannot with Maria Sharapova writing an autobiography titled "Unstoppable" in which she writes about Serena Williams, an opponent who has stopped her ass on court more times than a police officer has stopped a black man for a busted headlight. I can NOT. #USOpen pic.twitter.com/TaKkv2AoAM— Donnie J. Sackey (@donniejsackey) August 27, 2019
