This is some juicy stuff! Maria Sharapova hit back at Eugenie Bouchard's "cheater" claims on Thursday, telling the Canadian that she is "way above" getting into a slanging match over her controversial comeback from a doping ban.

Bouchard, long seen as the Russian's heir in the sport's marketability stakes, had attacked Sharapova over her return from a 15-month suspension and suggested the former world number one should be kicked out of tennis for life.

But after reaching the Stuttgart quarter-finals on Thursday, Sharapova attempted to put Bouchard in her place.

"I don't have anything to say - I am way above that," she told reporters when asked to respond to Bouchard's comments after seeing off fellow Russian Ekaterina Makarova 7-5, 6-1 in Stuttgart.

"She's a cheater and so to me, I don't think a cheater in any sport should be allowed to play that sport again," Bouchard, the world number 59, told TRT World in Istanbul where she had been playing a WTA event.

It's heating up and we feel like there's a wee bit of jealousy coming from Bouchard considering Sharapova is ranked higher than her! 

Just in case you forgot what they look like...
