’ One area where Maria Sharapova reigns supreme is in the modern phenomenon of on-court grunting.
Her distinctive sound — which she says she has made while playing since the age of four — has been memorably described as a ‘climactic shriek of the blue movie variety’.
The noise, made when she hits every stroke, can reach 101 decibels, the equivalent of an aeroplane landing.
Serena Williams’ grunt is a more macho ‘hur-wuff’ although she has been known to top it up with a shout of ‘Come on’ — or something far ruder.
Nick Bollettieri, who taught both Williams and Sharapova at his academy in Florida, said: ‘They’re great girls but they’re completely different, in as much as Maria was always business, always tough as nails, even when she was nine or ten.‘Serena is also driven on the court, brought up to be a brilliant competitor and a wonderful person.
They’re both great, maybe intimidating if you’re on the wrong end of their play on court, but sweet as pie off it.’Sharapova had an early romance with tennis lothario Andy Roddick.
She also has a serving routine which involves brushing her hair from her face and then bouncing the ball twice, slowly.
However, she cannot compete with Sharapova’s media-friendly combination of blonde Siberian beauty and sponsor-friendly image control — which has meant Sharapova, 28, has waltzed away with a fortune of £125 million and counting. When you’ve got a set of legs like tennis star Maria Sharapova, giving a long gown by Alexander Mc Queen the chop is just a given. The blonde beauty aced this red carpet appearance back in 2011 in a black halter neck dress from Alexander Mc Queen’s Pre Fall 2011 collection featuring chunky gold embellishments and a feather skirt. Kitted out from head to toe in Mc Queen with her vertiginous matching sandals and skull clutch bag completing the look, Maria smashed this high profile event look game set and match.
Since then she has only beaten her on one other occasion.
After their last meeting, through evidently gritted teeth, Sharapova said: ‘I love every time that I step on the court against her because she’s the best. I’m proud to play in the same era as her.’Like many tennis players, Sharapova distances herself from others when on tour.
It is also said that she will wear the same pair of socks throughout a winning run. 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.
