The media called Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova rivals but Nigerians clapped back

It seems the media may have taken it quite far to call tennis players, Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova rivals. Because Nigerians took to social media to explain exactly how ludicrous such a statement was.

Maria Sharapova: 36 singles titles, five Grand Slams & One Fed. Cup plus one Olympivlc silver medal.

Serena Williams:90 singles titles, 39 Grand Slam titles, four Olympic gold medals, five tour finals titles, one Grand Slam cup, swag title.

Rivalry? Put some respek on it.#GOAT

Western media sha! Serena Williams has beaten Maria Sharapova in 19 of 21 matches in 14 years yet u keep reporting them as rivals! When will this head to head signal superiority to you? Real Madrid & Barca are rivals. Real Madrid and Levante are not rivals.
