Serena Williams' rumored boyfriend Patrick Mouratoglou slammed Maria Sharapova's remarks about what Williams said about her boyfriend Grigor Dimitrov just before Wimbledon 2013 started.

It all started when Rolling Stone magazine posted an article revealing that Williams criticized Sharapova and her boyfriend Dimitrov's relationship. Here is an excerpt from USA Today:

"There are people who live, breathe and dress tennis. I mean, seriously, give it a rest." Serena exits the car and the conversation moves on to a top-five player who is now in love. "She begins every interview with 'I'm so happy. I'm so lucky' - it's so boring," says Serena in a loud voice. "She's still not going to be invited to the cool parties. And, hey, if she wants to be with the guy with a black heart, go for it." (An educated guess is she's talking about Sharapova, who is now dating Grigor Dimitrov, one of Serena's rumored exes.)

Sharapova responded in a pre-Wimbledon press conference on Saturday saying, "At the end of the day, we have a tremendous amount of respect for what we do on the court. I just think she should be talking about her accomplishments, her achievements, rather than everything else that's just getting attention and controversy."

 

"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. Talk about other things, but not draw attention to other things. She has so much in her life, many positives, and I think that's what it should be about."

According to USA Today, coach Mouratoglou responded to that on Saturday.

"I don't think anything about it (about what Sharapova said)," he told The Guardian newspaper. "My role is to think about tennis and to help Serena be the best she can be and do what she wants to achieve. I'm just here for tennis."

Neither Williams, the overwhelming favorite to win Wimbledon, nor her rumored boyfriend denied or confirmed reports that they were dating. When asked if the rumors were true at the French Open this month, Mouratoglou replied with a smile, "Sorry. I don't understand the question."
