Are there cases of players shrieking when hitting a dropshot?

I mean, with all the talk lately about vika being heard from centre court ( ), and how her grunts are fake. anyway i noticed she didn't grunt when she hit one, so at least it wasn't that bad. i dont think sharapova does it as well.

have you noticed anyone who shrieked when hitting a dropshot, i mean that would just be fake as hell.

Re: Are there cases of players shrieking when hitting a dropshot?

Well, some pushers screams like their baby is giving them an orgasm when they're giving birth. That's beyond fake.

So I'm pretty sure they grunt when they hit a dropshot.
Plus, if you grunt while doing so, it can "hide" a little bit more your strategy/confuse the opponent.

It telegraphs her shot though.


A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.

Lena's most devastating sonic strikes are reserved for her post-error shrieks.

Although I'm pretty certain her post-Olympic screams broke windows as far away as Shanghai.

The other weird thing about Lena D. is she grunts before she hits the ball.

Actually, Maria has done it.

Plenty have done it. By "shrieking" I guess you mean grunting.

Re: Are there cases of players shrieking when hitting a dropshot?

It's not that ridiculous.. playing a drop shot can take a lot of effort. There are different approaches. You can use careful touch and placement to give it a much softer feel... or you can really try to put some extreme spin on the shot and be aggressive with it and in that case I wouldnt be too bothered by a yell or scream.

I always wanted to be somebody. If I made it, it's half because I was game enough to take a lot of punishment along the way and half because there were a lot of people who cared enough to help me.

Re: Are there cases of players shrieking when hitting a dropshot?

It's not that ridiculous. Sometimes the antcipation of getting to the drop shot in time is so high that when a player reaches it and hits it over the net, its the release of all that build up. I've seen quite a few players grunt while smacking a drop shot over the net.

I think it was more when a player is hitting a drop shot, not when a player is hitting a drop shot back.

My bad. I read it wrong.

I'm certainly guilty to this crime though.
