Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova have always been at loggerheads both on and off the court. Despite all that, the former admitted that the latter brings the best out of her ahead of the duo’s blockbuster quarter-final encounter at the prestigious Wimbledon Championships.

“I love playing Maria, I think she brings out the best in me,” the top-seeded Williams was quoted as saying by 7Days, following her intense three-set conquest of former World No. 1 Victoria Azarenka in the fourth round on Tuesday here.

“I think I bring out the best in her. I thought we had a wonderful final in Australia (Williams won 6-3 7-6). It was very entertaining. She played really well,” she continued.

“I don’t have anything to prove. Now I’m just here to enjoy it. I think that’s actually making me play better, which is crazy.”

Williams leads the head-to-head record against Sharapova by 17-2 overall.
