I don't find any of the grunts annoying. I prefer Venus' of the ones that are listed.

Venus and Serena are sitting on top of the WORLD

I reckon Schiavone's is the most annoying by far.

She sounds like a Barn Owl!!

Jelena's and Paul-Henri Matheui's!

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

I voted for Serena Williams. And she's winning the vote in a runaway!

Elena Dementieva has the sweetest grunts and squeals!

I don't know how Schiavone grunts, I never saw her. As for the rest, I don't hate any grunts and I actually think that it's more exciting when players grunt because it adds a little spice, you hear their efforts, it's just fun to watch 2 people playing and grunting. But Dokic's grunt is kind of weird so I picked it. I love Monica's and Serena's grunts.

It shows effort. Let the girls grunt away...I worry when Serena's grunts are low. The louder, the better...

Schiavone grunts well after she hit the ball...usually she grunts as it crosses the net. Weird, but more funny than annoying.

Jelena Dokic sneezes every time she hits the ball. More funny than annoying.

Seles and Serena both grunt loud, but Serena blows Monica out of the water in decibal level. Serena gets my most annoying award for the fact that it is so loud, and not a grunt but a scream.

It doesn't matter to me. If you grunt and makes you play your game, and im all for it.

Venus ~ Serena ~ Nadal

Serena's is really annoying because it's not even a grunt...IMO Serena does it for intimidation and to boost her ego...

Visit MONICA!

I am a sinner too!
Jesus answered and said to him[Nicodemus, a Pharisee],"Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again[of the Spirit/above], he cannot see the kingdom of God."--John 3:3

Good works can't save you from hell!! Jesus loves you and wants to be in your heart and mind!!!

I will worship Jesus forever!
