At her news conference on Sunday, as Wimbledon's defending champion Serena Williams responded to questions regarding her controversial comments in a Rolling Stone magazine.

Serena previously issued a statement apologizing for recent comments made about a 16 year old rape victim in the Steubenville, Ohio case.On Sunday, Serena said that she approached Sharapova who is ranked No.3 to try and smooth things over. Serena said she extended an apology to Sharapova at a pre-tournament player's party Thursday. However, Thursday's interaction and apology did nothing to end the matter because Sharapova delivered comments of her own on Saturday.Sharapova said "If she wants to talk about something personal, maybe she should talk about her relationship and her boyfriend that was married and is getting a divorce and has kids."Serena decided not to react to to Sharapova's verbal swipe 24 hours after, instead saying, "I was definitely told of (Sharapova's) comments. I definitely like to keep my personal life personal. I think it would be inappropriate for me to comment on it."Wimbledon Championships begins on Monday 24th June.
