Maria Sharpova is pretty and all that...

but her game is not! Her game lacks variety. Every time I see her play, I feel bored and eventually sleepy. Sorry, I really don't enjoy her game at all. Her deafning gruntin doesn't help either... I think if she had the looks of Franny Schiavone "the late gunter", she wouldn't get nearly as much publicity. I really wish she would look like that friendly Franny.

Try sitting in the stands and listen to it, it is 10 times worst, then on TV. People actually leave and don't watch her play, because of her grunt and you really can't blame them either, it is just horrible,(I am not talking about the teenage boys, but just general tennis fan, who go every year, regardless of who is playing) if it was a normal grunt, it wouldn't bother you, but it is not.

Probably on a par, but that isn't the problem, who's is louder or not, it is the noise that she makes, I am not going to describe it, but it is unique, no body grunts like her, others may be as loud, (lee-waters for example)

I'm sorry, but that is not a grunt. That is a screech. They should sell earplugs at the concession stands.

Maria hits the ball hard. That's it. I've only ever seen her play 1 match with variety against Mauresmo in YEC and she lost

Her grunts are beyond stupid now tight 1st set yes tight match yes crushing her opponent NO

BTW talking about Schiavone could you imagine the grunting in a match between her and Maria Knowing Fran she'd probably complain about Maria's too
