What are your thoughts on Safina's grunt?

All this talk about grunts got me wondering about the public opinion on that pained noise that emits from her side of the court. It's pretty loud, extended and horrible sounding but i've never heard one complaint about it.
After the Rome semi i couldn't get it out of my head and (sorry) i had unfortunate visions of her on a toilet struggling while making that sound. Why Do people not complain about her?

^^^^ for all my ladies

Re: What are your thoughts on Safina's grunt?

I don't mind genuine, normal grunts that are fairly consistent and reasonably picthed.

The only two that don't fit this status are Sharapova and MLDB. But, I can live with it, we have to, I guess.


Dinara's is fine

Regrettably a life long fan of Ana Ivanović.

Re: What are your thoughts on Safina's grunt?

It's not consistent just like the WS. They all mainly do it when things are close or they're really going for it. It pains me to say this but I prefer Maria's grunt over Safina's.

The woods are hopeless. Don't waste your time, they will be destroyed. So will the marsh. It is a losing game mankind has played for more than a century. Sadness is what you are, do not deny it. The universe is a lonely place, a painful place. This is what we can share between us, period.

Loads of people, including me, complain about Safina's grunt, it's another unpleasent sound. But Larcher takes it to a whole new extreme so of course people aren't going to complain about Safina as much.

my dear i didn't go on international television and call out Safina on that hot mess grunt of hers. Hell i don't mind if she continues with it as it's part of her game and she's had it for a long time. That however does not prevent me from thinking it sounds like a pig being slowly slaughtered with a rusty razor blade.

Arvan didnt CALL her out. The reporters asked her repeatedly about it, and Arvane just answered. She was very restrained, she couldve said a lot more and a lot worse but didnt.

Oh lord. What about the complaining to the umpire like a child whose crayons are being used by another to her MOTHER.
