Good quality final; But my hearing is now irreparably damaged.

And people think Sharapova screams loudly! Venus shattered any effort I've hear from Maria. I was surprised to hear Serena so quiet though.

I haven't ever seen a Venus vs Maria match but I imagine earplugs are mandatory.

However I thought it was a highly entertaining final, despite the fact I'm, not a fan of either sister. However if one of them had to win I wanted Venus to win and was pleased that she did.

Why is it that the world never remembered the name of Johann Gambolputty de von Ausfern-

Grow up. This is now apart of this game. Women are hitting the ball harder it takes more effort there are going to be sounds.

Screaming means they are into the match and into the point. When they don't scream, you know something is up. It shows how intense the match was for them that they were heard all the way in China.

Take a listen to the top ten Women in the game today. Everyone grunts when they hit the ball. They make millions playing this game the way they do. How much do you make in tennis quietly?

I agree with this... the screaming aspect seems to pump them up get more adrenaline(known fact)... Im more concerned when they arent...

Only people who complain about the screamin IMO are prudy people who arent getting enough good sex in their life. which i guess thats why its always a hot topic at Wimbledon....

Venus' scream is, for some reason, beautiful to listen to for me. Well, okay not beautiful, it's just awesome to hear Venus let out that roar, and smack the ball with all her might. Just like Sharapova's.

Oh let me check is Davenport in the top 10 hold on......NOPE Old school. Here is an education for you read any books about Karate of Kung Fu Arts that have been around alot longer than Davenport. In fact thousands of years. They mastered the generation of power from a small frame. Hope I did not get to deep for you. FYI

They don't have to scream.

Did Zheng Jie scream? Did she fist pump? Wasn't she intense in her second set against Serana? Wasn't she putting everything she had and more?

A few bad apples gave an example, and now a lot of players, especially the younger ones (vide Azarenka), are aping them.

Occasional, or low intensity, sounds exuded by a player are world apart from high-pitch high-intensity noises produced at every contact with the ball.
