Umm yeah i guess you can count it as grunting twice. Before she hits the ball she makes a sound like WAAAA!!! And then once she hits it, it sounds like EEEEE!!! It's not always the same though. Sometimes she doesn't grunt much and other times she's really loud!

Yep. Schiavone definitely grunts loud at times and sometimes not as much. Schiavone!

Imagine if you were lucky enough to talk her into sneaking round the corner into the nearest alleyway to slip her a length,you'd only just get into your standerupper and the bugger would set up this unholy gruntingand attract everyone for miles around

BepaZvonareva Don't read my reps anymore, very relaxing Lydia Ko , Felicity Jones, Emilia Clarke, Rachel Khoo.

I think Francesca does. Venus yells "MUH!!!" each time before she serves and Sharapova screams when she serves, too, so different strokes for different folks.

Sounds like one, long, loud, grunt in this Quicktime from Los Angeles in 2003.

Dementieva always twice for serve and groundstrokes ---> Huh-ehhhh....

Safina ---> Uhhh uhhh.... all the time. Sounds cute for a grunt.
