Sharapova did not take back comments she made about Serena Williams at Wimbledon in a New York Times article last month, giving the impression that the relationship between the pair was still cold, Sports Illustrated writes.

Although Serena Williams holds more widely-respected stats than Sharapova, the American tennis star showed frustration throughout the beginning of her first match at the Australian Open.

Despite winning the match, the 32-year-old American tennis star encountered her most glaring error in the sixth game of the second set when a looping backhand from Petkovic landed just over the net to set up an easy winner but Serena Williams was fooled by prodigious backspin and wildly missed the ball with a forehand, reports.

Serena Williams' coach and rumored boyfriend Patrick Mouratoglou mentioned during a September interview that the American tennis star and Victoria Azarenka are "competing at the highest level," leaving many fans wondering if he predicted a rivalry during the Australian Open.

"Of course they have a good relationship, but it's difficult to have real friends," Mouratoglou said, according to ESPN.

"So, they're not real friends, but they appreciate each other, they're joking; they are friends, but as much as they can be because they're competing at the highest level."

Victoria Azarenka thinks her rivalry with Serena Williams is making her a better player and is looking forward to renewing it over the next four weeks at the Brisbane International and the Australian Open, writes.
