To: beyond the sea
That isn't what happened.
Yes after the winning point she threw her racket and briefly laid on the ground. But she quickly got up and went to the net and shook hands, hugged and kissed Sharapova on the cheek.
Then after briefly enjoying the moment she went to where her family was including her mom and high fived them without leaving the playing field.
Both players were gracious.

I'm glad you cleared that up, DB.
I found it hard to believe that Serena blew off Maria at the net. It's good to hear that she did the right thing.
I always thought that she was a very nice girl. As I noted earlier, I did not see the match.
Be well .......... and thanks again. I'm very glad you told me that. I would not have liked to go through the next years having a poor impression of Serena.
