"Thank God that's over with," said Maria Sharapova. "I apologize for all of the loud shrieking and grunting over the years, but if you've ever had a kidney stone, you know how much they can hurt."
Serena Williams says now that her health problems are over, she hopes she can focus on tennis.
"I've had a huge stone, about the size of a pool ball, stuck smack dab in the middle of my urethra for about eight years," said Williams. "Hurt like hell. Every time I swung my racket, I'd get shooting pains through my whole body. But the other day I decided I couldn't take it anymore. I sat down on the toilet in the locker room and squeezed the thing out. After about three hours of grunting and shrieking in pain, and a few pints of lost blood, I was free of it. Best day of my life. Even better than winning a Grand Slam."
She may want to consider changing her diet.
Wow. That magazine really misspelled her name.
