Maria Sharapova Must’ve Had Some Shitty Drugs If They Made Her Lose To Serena 18 Straight Times

The most famous scene in When Harry Met Sally — and one of the most memorable scenes in movie history — takes place in a diner as “Harry” (Billy Crystal) attempts to convince “Sally” (Meg Ryan) that men can tell when women are faking orgasms. Sally disputes this claim, and proves herself right by faking an orgasm right there during the meal, while an astonished, confused, and entertained crowd looks on. (This, btw, was a hilariously transparent fake orgasm. But that’s another topic for another day.)

As the scene concludes, the camera pans to an older woman approached by a server. Instead of ordering from the menu, she just says “I’ll have what she’s having“; the joke being that whatever Sally ate to generate that response must be amazing.

Anyway, earlier today Maria Sharapova announced that she tested positive for a banned substance at the Australian Open.

From the New York Times:

Sharapova said she received an email from the World Anti-Doping Agency in December that noted changes to tennis’s program for 2016. She said that the email included a link to a list of banned substances, but that she did not look at it.

“I have to take full responsibility for it,” Sharapova said at a news conference in Los Angeles. “It’s my body, and I’m responsible for what I put into it.”

Last fall, WADA said meldonium was included on the prohibited list because of evidence of its use by athletes with the intention of enhancing performance. Sharapova is at least the seventh athlete to test positive for the drug this year.

Now, I’m not sure what meldonium is or what it does, but I do know that performance enhancing drugs are called performance enhancing drugs because they are drugs that presumably enhance performance. I also know that Maria Sharapova, the world’s highest paid tennis player, has lost 18 consecutive times to Serena Williams. The most recent being Jan 26th, the day she was drug tested. Which makes me wonder which performance these drugs were enhancing. Did her hair get more blonde? Did she get better at typing? Did her guacamole improve? Is she doing a better job responding to emails and text messages in a timely manner? Can she drink a whole Hennessy fifth? (Some call that a problem, but I consider it a gift.) Did she receive an especially cruel version of the same powers as Bradley Cooper in Limitless, with tennis courts being her only kryptonite? Can she Wobble without forgetting her steps? Or learn how to summarize shows to friends without spoiling them? (An underrated great quality to have.) Did she become a crocheting maven? Like, the best motherfucking crocheter in the history of crocheting? Can this chick loop the shit out of some yarn now?

Someone please tell me. Because performance enhancing drugs are supposed to be fun and cool. And performance enhancing. And if the result of her doping is losing 18 straight times to her biggest rival — seriously, Meek Mill vs the letter “L” is less of a one-sided feud — then I definitely don’t want to have what she’s having.

  • Ray Jefferies

    All I can say is, “thank God it wasn’t Serena that had a positive drug test”. She, you, I, and the entire black community would NEVER hear the end of it. Serena better not so much as take a double shot of Robitussin or they’ll look at her sideways.

    • LKNMRE

      Serena can’t even take Nyquil or they’ll have her azz talmbout “it helped her get more sleep the night before.”

    • Junegirl627

      But she white so she’s gonna get the Tom Brady deflate-gate treatment

      • Ray Jefferies

        Our praise and criticism of a person is amplified by the degree to which we identify with that person. It gets overlooked often but it plays a role in just about every hot social topic. So when the capes start billowing in the wind (as I am sure they will) on Sharapova’s behalf, they will no more surprise me than when I watched Americans route against an American (Serena) when she was trying to win all the Grand Slams in one year. Imagine them doing this to anyone else trying to compete such a fete.

        • Mochasister

          That was disgusting how they were rooting against Serena. Serena and her sister Venus have to be strong (mentally as well as physically.) to put up with the crap they’ve had to deal with over the years.

      • peepsqueek

        Deflated balls do not give you more talent, and come to think of it neither do drugs.

        • Aye Bee

          They don’t give you more talent but they do give you an unfair advantage against your opponent.

          • peepsqueek

            Serena has the advantage of playing tennis since she could walk, natural muscle power, plus the dedication and sacrifice to both the sport and the training. It does not hurt to have a sister and training partner that is truly one of the greats as well. No pills or injections can give you the advantage over that!

            • Aye Bee

              I’m talking about why they are banned, not in this isolated incident. Clearly drugs did not aid in helping her win Sharpova because look at her record against Serena.

              • peepsqueek

                I agree that drugs can make you faster and stronger, they are not healthy, and they should be banned from the sport. My point is that the biggest, fastest, most powerful athletes on the planet, can go into a boxing ring and get their asp kicked by a mediocre boxer who knows how to fight. But I am not disagreeing with you, it is just my take.

                I am bigger, stronger, and faster than my wife, and I have not won one fight with her in the all the years we have been married. She has an unfair advantage and she does not even take an aspirin.

      • occupiesthethrone

        That’s not a great analogy because deflate gate was overblown because the NFL hates the Patriots. They smashed the Colts by 40+ points. Balls having less air wasn’t going to change that outcome. But, people pretending Peyton Manning didn’t sexually assault a woman in college, then bad mouthed the same woman years later in his memoir is perfect.

        • Junegirl627

          Deflategate is not overblown. Look I know the deal the balls were under inflated and I believe the ball people when they say Brady told them to do it.

          It doesn’t matter whether or not it works. That’s not cheating. Cheating isn’t only considered cheating if you benefit from the extra measures you’ve taken. Cheating is the attempt to give yourself an unfair advantage. There are rules and protocols for the handling of the football and if you do things to tamper with that process so that you can have an advantage thats cheating. So even though the officials discovered the balls were tampered with in the first few minutes of the first quarter and the Patriots still managed to win the game doesn’t matter. What matters is that you did it.

          When a kid looks at another persons test in school. The cheating isn’t writing down the answer its looking at the other persons paper.

          • occupiesthethrone

            Aaron Rogers over inflates his balls. Nobody cares. Pretty much everything the Patriots have done that is considered “cheating”, numerous other teams have done as well. No scandal, people barely talk about it. The only reason it becomes a scandal is because it’s the Patriots, which makes it over blown. If both kids look at somebody else’s test, but one gets a pat on the back and one gets expelled, that wouldn’t be fair.

            • Junegirl627

              The reason why no one says anything to Aaron Rodgers is because even slightly over inflated it wasn’t done to the extent where there is a remarkable difference in the grip of the ball.

              Brady’s balls were so under inflated that when the colts caught the ball they noticed the difference. The officials on the field noticed the difference and had to report that the balls were tampered with.

              That’s cheating.

              • occupiesthethrone

                So, you make this entire point about cheating is cheating is cheating, but how is Aaron Rogers over inflating not cheating according to you? You just brushed that right aside to go right back to Brady. You basically made my point. Aaron Rogers only does it a “little”. SMH. If what Brady did was cheating, so is Rogers. You can’t be like “he only cheats a little”. You either cheat or you don’t. Over inflating does the same as under inflating. This is why the NFL’s decision was thrown out. You can’t apply rules to one person and ignore everyone else.

                • Junegirl627

                  No there is margin to how inflated the balls can be. Aaron rodgers likes his football at the highest amount of air so yeah it has more air than average but still within the guidelines. If he had the footballs inflated beyond the standard then yes he’s a cheating azz too! I’m not saying overlook it because he’s Aaron Rodgers what i’m saying is that if he is doing the same as brady but overinflating he is doing it in a way that it isn’t noticeable enough for him to be caught. Essentially Aaron Rodgers is better at cheating that Tom Brady, That’s all

                  • occupiesthethrone

                    There is absolutely a maximum for ball inflation. Aaron Rogers goes over that maximum. Nobody cares because pretty much everyone thinks that the range is ridiculous and should be adjusted. It’s like jaywalking is a crime, but cops only apply it when they want to mess with someone and they have nothing else. Aaron Rogers isn’t better at cheating, it’s a rule that nobody cares about until it was the Colts complaining about Brady, and then it’s a big dust up. So, it’s less about Rogers and more about Brady

                    • Junegirl627

                      lol

                      My earlier reply suffers from lack of grammar issues and typing slower than I think. I meant “No…. There is a margin to how the inflated the balls can be.”

                      Now my second point is that Tom Brady isn’t well liked or appreciated and he has a target on his back so when he does something everybody wants to see him taken down

      • Mochasister

        And you know this! All she has to do is cry a river of white woman tears, toss her her blond(?) hair, talk about how the death of her dog Mr. Bojangles had her so upset that she couldn’t attend to her email and all will be forgiven.

      • THIS!

    • Sigma_Since 93

      “Serena better not so much as take a double shot of Robitussin or they’ll look at her sideways.”

      Real talk especially since the active ingredient will trigger a positive drug test.. At least it will in the track and field world.

    • Mochasister

      Lawd, have mercy but you ain’t said nothing but a word precious baby! Ok, now that I’m done with my Black church mother routine..sho’ you right!

    • AshAlly08

      This is probably why Serena (and Venus) would get horribly sick all the time. There’s no popping some cold medicine to cut it off before it gets worse. All they could have is orange juice. Not the orange juice you buy from the store. Fresh squeezed, just picked off of some Florida citrus trees, and carefully inspected, because this fruit can’t have been touched by insecticides or growth hormones.

      • Junegirl627

        I said before that Serena did an interview after winning the french open where she had the stomach flu so bad she threw up into a garbage can in the hallway before going out on the court but she refused to take meds the tournament doctors offered because she didn’t want to take something that was on the banned list by accident. She just went home and toughed it out.

    • You see how they did Marian Jones. Even without PED’s, she would have murdered her opponents but all white folks needed was an in.

  • Kas

    When I saw the headline about this, I immediately thought “and Serena steadily tapping that azz”.

  • Lola

    this is so perfectly ignant and perfect. Maria is crocheting theeeee phhhuuck out of some handbags I guess

  • Nicole

    It might just enhance her ability of not being the highest paid female athlete in the world. I am waiting for the outraged white tennis fans to confirm this………the kind that were outraged over Lance Armstrong’s use of performance enhancing drugs.

    • Ray Jefferies

      Folks are selectively outraged about what they want to be outraged about. They won’t be mad at this. This will blow over in one news cycle. Let it had been Serena though, they’d be talking about this after she was retired.

      • Nicole

        I already know…..smh. “So what ? It was legal a year ago – an honest mistake , no big deal.”

        • Ray Jefferies

          Got those excuses and apologisms lined up and ready to launch. They’re not fooling anyone. Thank God it wasn’t Serena.

      • LKNMRE

        I’ve already seen yts talmbout she’s “so brave to speak out” and “good for her for being honest.”

        • L8Comer

          ??? honest woulda been not taking the drugs in the first place after they were banned. Taking banned substances and confessing when you’re caught doesn’t quite cut it.

          I’m not tryna demonize the lady, maybe it was an honest mistake and I appreciate her taking responsibility after being caught. but I can’t stomach people congratulating her for this especially when I think how people would react if Serena tested positive.

          • Quirlygirly

            L8, if Serena tested positive all hayle would break loose! They would be stripping her of her titles and putting all type of asterisks next to her name. Angry, white twitter would have memes, gifs and all types of hateful stuff to say. White tears would become black anger.

            • L8Comer

              Right?? Just thinking about it makes my blood pressure rise. It would be all out pandemonium. People would attribute every single win since puberty to drugs. They’d speculate about what other substances she took and was able to mask. There would be wild theories. They’d be going to court so they could solicit samples of her bone marrow, hair, skin, anything to show she had an edge the entire time.

              But she knows this, I’m sure. I once heard Usain talking about how careful he is about what vitamins and supplements he takes.

              • Quirlygirly

                I’m sure Serena does too. She is on top..they looking for anything to topple the queen

              • They already wanna touch her hair as it is…lol

              • Mochasister

                If Serena and Usain know what’s good for them, they better not ever let go of that Black paranoia.

              If you think I’m not appropriating “White tears would become Black anger”, you are sorely mistaken. Trying to figure out how to work it into a FB post as I type this.

              • Quirlygirly

                My words are meant to be shared..Lord knows I have appropriated some phases from other VSB/VSS.

            • Mochasister

              ALL Black folk would be guilty because you know only white folks get to be individuals and what not. They would be approaching every single Black person and expecting us to “explain” Serena’s transgressions. White people would be pontificating on how Serena singlehandedly let down the youth of America. Her darkened image a la O.J. Simpson would be staring up at us from every news magazine known to mankind. White people would be gleefully singing the ” I knew Serena couldn’t be s***” song as they prepare their pet dogs’ steak dinner. The river of white tears alone could take care of the drought in CA. And there would be NO talk of forgiveness. Forgiveness only exists for troubled white youth who shoot innocent Black people in their place of worship.

        • Ray Jefferies

          LOL, good for her for being honest… like it wasn’t going to come out anyway… these folks and their reaches man. They’re giving her credit for doing damage control PR, but not giving her criticism for doing the the thing that has required the damage control PR.

          • Nicole

            Her excuse for taking the performance enhancing drugs were due to “health issues” and magnesium deficiency.

            • Kas

              Don’t forget that Suga run in her family.

              • Nicole

                Shiiiddd, I might need some of that melondonia …… Suga run in my family too and I have a vitamin deficiency aka “health issues”. What you think?

  • Junegirl627

    Sharapova is a gotdammmmmn liar. This chick lived in the U.S. Since she was 6-8 years old. But she got a prescription for medication that isn’t FDA approved or available here. THEN she claims she didn’t look at UPDATED LIST of substances she is banned from taking as a pro athlete. Even though it is well known that if you test positive you can be stripped of any titles and BANNED from your sport for up to 4 years!! BUT she just happened to UNLNOWINGLY take this drug that has been been proven to enhance performance on the SAME DAY SHE PLAYED SERENA. Then this bush got the nerve to say she been taking it for years…… Really H o e then how come you ain’t test positive in all the other matches you played?!!! Because she played Serena in in the semi final which means she played 5 MATCHES BEFORE SERENA.

      I am not a Maria fan at all! Don’t like her. Glad she got caught. However, the substance was just banned this year. However she deserves everything she gets cause her people knew it was performance enhancing just like all of the other russian athletes that got in trouble overseas for it. The US just finally decided to catch up and catch on

    • Dougie

      It’s because the rules just changed in January.

      let’s be pro Serena, but going off on a rant like this without understanding the situation isn’t proactive or even correct.

      • Sigma_Since 93

        Pros don’t pay attention to that list because it’s constantly changing; they are looking to be spoon fed the information. So what if .357ml of some substance now triggers an offense vs. .462ml. It becomes information overload.

        • Dougie

          Pros also hate changing their regimen. I’m not mad at Sharapova at all. I believe this was an honest and easy mistake.

          Serena is still the GOAT. She’s still the leading vote getter of appropriate white tears. But nah, she’s not off base with what she did here.

          • Sigma_Since 93

            See my comments at the top of the thread; it may make you change your view.

            I agree on the following:

            Serena is the GOAT
            Pros hate to change a regimen.

            • Dougie

              I read that article, but it doesn’t change my viewpoint. Whether she took it for 6 weeks or for 6 years, it just got banned 10 weeks ago.

              But she seems like she’s lying to cover up embarrassment, and she should be ridiculed for that.

              • Sigma_Since 93

                Yes it got banned 10 weeks ago but why would a highly trained athlete continue to put something into the machine you don’t need unless you are getting a benefit?

                • Lea Thrace

                  THANK YOU!

                • Dougie

                  Oh she was absolutely getting a benefit. That’s what it was for. I’m just not coming down hard on her for not knowing it was banned.

                  I also believe that all pros should be able to take what they want to maximize their potential. But I’m very liberal in that view

              • Junegirl627

                She was made aware of it 5 weeks before the tournament!!!! There is no excuse for taking a banned substance that you were given weeks notice on. This isn’t a case of I didn’t know they gave this to me. She flat out said I didn’t bother to read the email!!!! My head is gonna explode

              • Junegirl627

                From ESPN
                While meldonium was put on banned list as of Jan. 1, the decision to ban it had been announced by WADA and sports organizations as early as September 2015. Sharapova said she received an email with information on the changes in December, but did not read the information at the time.

        • Mary67890

          she is an ELITE PROFESSIONAL Athlete..it is her job and her business to be up to date on the current or latest list of banned substances. Especially when she is playing in a sport where and her off the court income heavily depends on her being clean and not failing a drugs test. If she does not want to read the list she has enough people on her support staff who can do it for her and make sure that she is playing clean.
          Plus this is an Olympic year. And also Russian athletes have been under suspicion for a long while now so all the more reason for Maria and her team to make sure she was clean.
          Well we all know that did not happen and she got caught and rightfully so!

      • Junegirl627

        1st. Facts – I am “ranting” based on HER WORDS and I am not trying to be proactive. being proactive would be to comment “Just Say No” What I wrote is facts and facts only skew negatively if it goes against someones desire to be on the side of right.

        Now my post is on her statement where Maria Yuryevna Sharapova said that she received the updated list of banned substances and didn’t bother to read it. She also said in her statement that she had been taking this drug for years for a magnesium issue. She failed the drug test she took at the Australian open and they did their random drug test the day she played Serena in the quaterfinals. So she played 5 matches and was test at least once prior to her Match against Serena with results showing negative.

        2nd. Receipts – I have more understanding than you know (don’t assume)
        Now I was on my Tennis Team in High School, still play to this day and have been a fan of the sport since I was a child. I my ex-boo cousin played pro football and is in the hall of fame, and my god son is about to enter the MLB draft. I go to Arthur Ashe kids day and go to the free qualifying rounds at the US open every year. I used to work security at the US Open when I was in college to make extra money for books and my post was the ladies locker room, and I actually saw Venus when one of her qualifying match in her break out performance when she made history getting to the finals where she lost Martina Hingis. So not only do I follow the sport. I play and I know ALOT about the inner working of Grand Slam Tennis Events and how anti doping rules are applied to potential Olympic & professional athletes and how many of them respond to the rules.

        3rd- the basis of my “rant”
        1. They send that list at the beginning of the year and it the athletes responsibility to know what is on it. The list gets updated yearly and during the off season so you have a window to stop using substances that are now banned.
        2. Maria Sharapova has a Phisio guy. They all do. Even if you aren’t about to go to webmd and compare your meds to the banned list of meds. People in her position tap the forward button and send it to her team because she is paying them millions of dollars to look at the list and I don’t believe she didn’t press forward.
        3. Players are tested before the tournament and randomly tested during the tournament. If she was taking this med for a magnesium issue it would’ve showed up before the test she took after facing Serena.
        4. Like I said this girl moved to America when she was 6 or 8 years old from SIBERIA. But she couldn’t find one doctor or one medication to help her fix her nutrient issue i repeat HER NUTRIENT ISSUE!. She lives in America. All of her other doctors are American. She had shoulder surgeries in America. Her recovery was overseen by doctors all of which being AMERICAN DOCTORS but the only place where she can get medication to solve her magnesium problems is in Russia. RUSSIA! This wasn’t cancer and she went to Cuba to get that vaccine.
        5. This chick makes 30 million dollars a year based on her ability to play her sport and look good doing it. She is at the tail end of her career and testing positive for doping is an automatic suspension for up to 4 years. A 4 year suspension is career death to someone in Sharapova’s position. She is not going to leave something like that to chance. Serena gave an interview after being sick with the flu after winning the French Open where she flat out refused medication that the TOURNAMENT DOCTORS were trying to give her even though she was throwing in up in the hallway before the match because she didn’t want to run the risk of accidentally taking a banned substance. Martina Hingis got banned for testing positive for Cocaine. Jennifer Capriatti got banned for marijuana. They all know the risks and right before the Australian Open there was a match fixing scandal playing out so the tournament officials were being extra careful about the behaviors of Athletes.
        4th- My final thought ( I could type more but my fingers hurt)
        if you believe for one second that Maria Sharapova didn’t do this or did this by accident. Or that I am going off “without understanding the situation” I hope I cleared this up.

          I actually didn’t think any of that, but I respect and admire your passion for the sport, and sports in general.

          I just believe this could have been an oversight, or her trainer could have just not cared. I’m not pointing the finger at her with as much fury as you are. I already said that if she lied (which she probably did to save herself embarrassment), that she should be ridiculed for that lie. But with respect to the actual drugs she took, I’m not coming at her with the pitch forks, especially for something that was legal 11 weeks ago. That’s all.

            She’s worth $30 million per annum. Ain’t no team doing an oversight on this. They pick what food she eats in the morning.

          • Junegirl627

            I’m sorry if I got what you were trying to say confused.

            What I’m saying is that this isn’t as simple as not paying attention. This was given to players 11 weeks ago or a month and a half before her first tournament. She had time to flush her system. She played fast and lose with drugs and she lost.

            This woman and her ability to play is a business that has netted her 200+ million dollars. You don’t get an email that says “Here is the new up to date list of things you shouldn’t do or you will embarrassed, kick out, stripped of achievements, and be labelled a lying cheater” and ignore it. You don’t “NOT FORWARD” this onto your team, and your fitness team, medical doctors and coaches uses her name to continue her career after she retires. They are not going to do something that stupid so that they can be labelled the group of bumbling idiots who didn’t read an email and caused one of the greatest female tennis players in history to end her career in shame.

            I am all for giving the benefit of the doubt but this is just too much. No one on that level in professional athletics would do any of what she is claiming without know exactly what they were doing.

            • God Shammgod

              Also how much is she claiming not to know…is she claiming to not know that it wasnt FDA approved? Or that it was only supposed for 4-6 weeks but her team of doctors disregarded pharmaceutical recommendations? What part is she really clueless on?

          • NonyaB

            How can you possibly say/believe its an oversight? Dope testing is about the most important issue in sports – one wrong move and you stand to lose everything as an athlete. So, whatever a sportsperson and her team may overlook, it is NEVER anything testing related. That’s like saying a gambler/banker/drug dealer could overlook their money. Nah.

            • Dougie

              That’s a pretty awful analogy.

              An oversight on her end on what she is taking isn’t that absurd. If you employ somebody who doesn’t care about the rule changes and gives you the banned drugs anyway, then it would be easy to take the banned substance. My point of view is that it could easily be an oversight by HER. I’m sure somebody, or many people on her team knew the deal. But before I go hard like many are doing, I’m just pointing out that she legit COULD have not known what she’s taking or that it was banned. I wouldn’t read that email if I was her being that I employ somebody who is supposed to know this type of stuff.

              But it’s pretty clear nobody is following or wanting to follow my line of thinking though. And that’s ok. Everyone has their cape on. I love that.

              • NonyaB

                Not an awful analogy but factual: The reason she plays is to be great, which translates to fame and money. Therefore, she probably ignores other things but not the one most important thing that could end her at any time, even if she does have people hired to care for details. Talking of details, if you agree that at least some of the team knew the deal, why would they not tell her? It doesn’t make any sense. If they knew, then she knew. Again, out of a group of people, including a couple whose job is explicitly to monitor testing-related issues, it is inconceivable that they all got the notice more than once, yet she didn’t know.

                Yeah, lets agree to disagree n sh*t. Not caping but just saying that given the facts, I cannot see how the conclusion can be made that she didn’t know. Her statement is simply part of her PR plan to spin the testing fail. It is a lie and a weak one at that.

            Well Damn! You rant like a Gemini. You don’t go all the way off unless you got all the facts in your bag waiting for somebody to say you don’t know what you’re talking about

            BTW it’s come out that they were told that the drug would be on the banned drug list in September 2015. The release of the banned drug list came in out January 1st so there is NO excuse.

          • Bkmews

      But… but…. but…. (and the white apologists begin)…. she had diabetes…IN HER FAMILY! (taking a drug that would not be indicated for a disease you don’t really have)

      but…. but… but…(more apologists)… she had and an abnormal EKG that ONE TIME!!

      but…but…but… (let’s talk solutions)… Shouldn’t we LEGALIZE PEDs instead of banning them?

      but..but…but… (not her fault…) She did not CLICK!! If she did not click, you must acquit!

      Now, now. Temper, temper. See what had happened is her dog Mr. Bojangles died and his death had her all discombobulated. She was so messed up behind Mr. Bojangles (nicknamed Bojo for short) that she couldn’t be bothered to check her email about a trivial matter such as drugs. Don’t you understand her pain? Can’t you see the hurt in her eyes? And cue the unrelenting outpouring of white woman tears.

    • GetReal2014

      Absolutely, and what doctor prescribes a medicine that you can’t go to the pharmacy and get?

      “Here you go, but you’ll have to go to Russia to get it.”

      Such BS.
