After saying that the loudest shrieker is Sharapova (100 decibel, equal to the sound of a small plane landing), Boris Becker words are reported:
Quote:
"When I see Maria Sharapova or Serena Williams I can't understand them. There is something sexual and one ends up thinking that it's not healthy because they're damaging their vocal cords. All of this cannot continue like that. It must be stopped, let's ban them [grunts/shrieks]. All of this is not even useful for playing".

It's not banning the player. It's banning the shriek. Maybe they should ban shrieks that are TOO loud, they could measure decibels on court and warn players when they scream above a threshold. This could be a first step.

Whats this world coming to, grunt measurements!

Well I know they couldn't ban a player for that, im just saying, its just as pathetic.

I must say at the end of the Safina match, her screamin did get a little bad, but if thats what

she needed to do to win, Im all for it

Re: Boris Becker: "Sharapova should stop grunting!"

Maybe people would have cared 3 years ago but people have gotten used to Maria's grunt, and Serena doesn't even grunt that much or loudly!

Re: Boris Becker: "Sharapova should stop grunting!"

I would prefer if they ban Kuznetsova from playing, with or without grunt.

well, she's not alone on court, is she? Is there any respect for the opponent in the WTA? If stabbing an opponent is what is needed to win, I'm all for it.

There are some reasons why WTA is so hated from men's tennis fans

Fuck Boris. He should get a life, get off drugs, and pay careful attention to his taxes.
