Everyone would be so annoyed and not able to focus.

A lot of girls grunt on the WTA. The only person that has a problem with it is Martina. Get over it.

Playing Masha is like standing on a runway @ Heathrow or JFK.

I always thought Maria's grunts were Mozart's music comparing to Venus' barking.

The grunting by Venus, Sharapova and Serena are all just pysch out attempts.. Half the time its non existent, the rest of the time its like someone in labour.. the bigger the point, the louder the grunt..

what about when they shriek like a stuck pig on an easy put away? Its all mind games..

Venus isn't the only one. But in general I think grunting should be banned. There is just no need for it IMO.

Re: Who can play against Venus when she's barking like a wounded dog?!?

She is getting beyond everything that is acceptable now. Shes just screaming for the sake of it. Like she was vs Kuznetsova.

I don't mind grunting usually but Venus is just so loud. And she wasn't making any noise for the 1st 3 games

GOOD LUCK IN 2014 GB TENNIS GIRLS

Johanna Konta, Eleanor Dean

If a player isn'T able to focus only because of the grunting of a player then this player sucks
