Grunts That Are More Annoying Than Sharapova's

Azarenka
Schiavone
Dementieva
...

But none of them get anywhere near the same amount of hate, or success.

Makes you wonder if there's a connection there.

Re: Grunts That Are More Annoying Than Sharapova's

Firstly, Sharapova's is a scream. It sounds horrible. If she was no.1 or no.100 it's still annoying.

I like Dementieva's grunt.

But I agree Schiavone and Azarenka's noises are annoying.

It's 530 AM here where I live, and the rest of my family is asleep. When I watch Sharapova, I don't mind having the speakers turned up. While watching Dementieva, I am so embarrassed to have the speakers turned on. My family is probably wondering what the hell I'm watching

Azarenka's is beautiful comparing to Maria's. There's nothing worse than hers.

Schiavone's is kind of irritating.
I love Dementieva's!
Venus is annoying at times, when she starts shrieking.

Re: Grunts That Are More Annoying Than Sharapova's

Finally a thread addressing this major annoyance in modern women's tennis.

Speak your mind openly. I wonder how many of you consider
screaming, grunting, loud cursing, etc, distracting and degrading to women's tennis.

Personally, I believe that the pioneers of tennis would be horrified if they attended some of the matches played today.

They didn't have to grunt back then. Grunting is used as a way to get the tension and pressure out of your body as you strike the ball. Players hit so much harder now and I don't understand how some players DON'T grunt. The "pioneers of tennis" played with wooden rackets and basically tapped the ball compared to today's field.

It helps me; if I'm ever feeling tight in a match, all I do is start grunting and I can start feeling my shots again.

But, there definitely are people that use it to gain a psychological advantage, and those are the people that ruin grunting for people that actually need it.
