Self-absorbed Meritocracy: How Do You Solve This Problem with Maria?


“I did fail the test and I take full responsibility for it.”

With these words, tennis superstar and five-time Grand Slam champion Maria Sharapova announced to the world that she had tested positive for a substance recently banned by the World Anti-Doping Agency. Like many of her competitors, I was impressed that Sharapova owned her mistake. The path of denial and shifting blame is well-worn, and Maria took the road less traveled.

On first glance, that made all the difference. On second glance, cynicism shaded my view. I became suspicious of any noble motives in Sharapova’s confession. I concluded it was a brilliant strategy to get ahead of the narrative and preserve her endorsements. Maybe it was. Today, honestly, I don’t care. It’s just refreshing that she confessed. For a moment, Maria was countercultural. Maybe it’s good to stop analyzing the whys and wherefores and simply celebrate that.
