But as I embark on my next chapter, I want anyone who dreams of excelling in anything to know that doubt and judgement are inevitable. You will fail hundreds of times and the world will watch you.
Accept it. Trust yourself. I promise you that you will prevail. On 7 March , Sharapova revealed that she had failed a drug test at the Australian Open , which she described as the result of an oversight.
She later released a statement regarding the test and explaining her use of the medicine:. I take full responsibility for it.
For the past ten years I have been given a medicine called mildronate by my family doctor and a few days ago after I received the ITF letter I found out that it also has another name of meldonium which I did not know.
It is very important for you to understand that for ten years this medicine was not on WADA's banned list and I had legally been taking the medicine for the past ten years.
But on January 1st  the rules had changed and meldonium became a prohibited substance which I had not known.
I was given this medicine by my doctor for several health issues that I was having in Meldonium is not approved for use in the United States , Sharapova's country of residence;  however, it is legal to use in Russia , the country that Sharapova represents in tennis.
Sharapova said that she had been taking the drug to treat magnesium deficiency, an irregular EKG and family history of diabetes,  and indicated that she had not read an email informing her that meldonium had been banned for use in tennis.
Meldonium's addition was outlined on a WADA and United States Anti-Doping Agency summary document   and it has been reported that all tennis players were warned five times that it was due to be banned.
That's a distortion of the actual "communications" which were provided or simply posted onto a webpage. Fans hope that the upcoming season will be a great one for her and expect her to lift her 24th Grand Slam title in Melbourne.
Home Tennis. Tags: Serena Williams. Disqus Comments Loading From to , when Sharapova was just coming onto the scene, that player was Serena Williams.
When any player displays the kind of dominance that Williams did, they tend to evolve the overall narrative of tennis.
Sharapova was seeded 13th, and it seemed like she was still a couple of years away from a breakthrough win. But she made her way through the draw, notching a comeback win in the semifinals after being a set down against American Lindsay Davenport, who was seeded fifth.
Williams, who had beaten Sharapova at a tournament in Miami earlier that year, was playing Wimbledon while recovering from injury.
Sharapova ultimately faced Williams in the championship, which saw Sharapova in the zone and Williams looking a little rusty after some time off; Sharapova came away with a dominating win and a boatload of expectations.
From that tournament on, the hype surrounding Sharapova was that she was one of the few players who could beat Williams and challenge her greatness.
The next great tennis rivalry had arrived — or so many people thought. Maria Sharapova is an entertaining tennis player — but more so off the court than on.
Though her match style is loud and one-dimensional, she knows how to play up the saltiness and drama that accompany the sport.
When asked about this comment in the press conference, Sharapova had a response that would make a drag queen shed a tear of joy.
In , after she won Wimbledon against her sister Venus, Serena Williams was asked if she saw herself as the No.
I think Dinara [Safina] did a great job to get to No. Williams and the press room at Wimbledon erupted in a cackle. The salt and sass of Williams and Sharapova would meet prior to Wimbledon in , though not on the tennis court.
In an interview with Rolling Stone, Williams seemed to talk about Sharapova dating Dimitrov, though she never named Sharapova outright :.
I'm so lucky' — it's so boring," says Serena in a loud voice. And, hey, if she wants to be with the guy with a black heart, go for it.
The depths of enmity between her and Serena Williams became apparent when Williams gave an interview in to Rolling Stone magazine.
And, hey, if she wants to be with the guy with a black heart, go for it. Step forward Bulgarian tennis heart-throb Dimitrov — sometimes known as Baby Fed because he reminds tennis fans of the great Roger Federer.
Insiders say he grew close to Serena in early — they knew each other because they were both being coached by Frenchman Patrick Mouratoglou.
Williams was devastated. I give my all and everything. I do make mistakes — like every human does — but the last relationship just was too much of a heartbreak for me.
It was hard. Relations between the women became worse when Sharapova hit back at the comments about her new man — making public a romance which Williams had quietly started with Mouratoglou, Serena Williams has earned more money from the sport than any other — except one.
She recently added a deal with watchmakers Audemars Piguet, and is being used by Pepsi, the parent company of her sponsors Gatorade, in a new campaign.
She is also a strong negotiator. Add that to her model looks and she is able to use her media-friendly exterior to further her commercial agenda.
There are not that many female stars in world sport who can come close to her. Consummate athletes both may be, but each is prey to peculiar superstitions.
Sharapova hates standing on court lines, and will hop over them between points. She also has a serving routine which involves brushing her hair from her face and then bouncing the ball twice, slowly.
Serena Williams always ties her shoelaces in the same way, uses the same shower at Wimbledon before each match, and bounces the ball five times before her first serve and twice before the second.
It is also said that she will wear the same pair of socks throughout a winning run. Both come from humble backgrounds.
Sharapova hails from a remote oil town in Siberia; Williams from an Los Angeles ghetto. They also have fathers who were omnipresent in their early years, exercising enormous control.
Maria was raised in Siberia, from where the family moved following the Chernobyl disaster.
