Dating tennis world warning signs of dating abuse

“That is definitely not the case with Maria.” In some ways, the coach adds, these powerful women really haven’t progressed beyond being teenagers.“These girls have been touring since they were 12, 13, 14 years old — their formative years — and they continue to travel in this same bubble. They live in a vacuum, so there are elements of jealousy when a girl rises in the ranks.” And schadenfreude when she stumbles.On March 7, the Russian-born tennis champ stood before the press and admitted that she had failed a drug test, having tested positive for meldonium — a medication banned by the World Anti-Doping Agency since the beginning of 2016 that aids in blood flow and can give an edge when it comes to cardiovascular performance.“I did fail the test and I take full responsibility for it,” said Sharapova, a five-time Grand Slam winner said to be worth some 5 million.From 2003 through 2015, she won at least one singles title a year — a streak even the Williams sisters can’t claim.

“Is Ronda Rousey going to be friends with her biggest competitor?It was a devastating blow, especially considering that Sharapova, 28, said she had been taking the drug for 10 years for a magnesium deficiency but neglected to notice it had been added to the banned list this year.And Dick Pound, former president of the World Anti-Doping Agency, said that there had been a “fairly high prevalence of [meldonium] use in tennis.” But if there was any sympathy from Sharapova’s fellow pros, it wasn’t to be found in print.Says the coach, “[Women’s tennis] is very much like high school and ‘Mean Girls,’ except there aren’t any cliques.” In fact, many players look at the tour as being every woman for herself, rather than like a sorority.“It’s something players cultivate to keep their edge,” Mary Joe Fernández, a former top-10 player who is now the captain of the American Fed Cup team, told Vogue.
