Re: Shreiking on the court
I used to give Pova a pass because...well, because she was Pova. But after the littany of shrieking clones came along, no more. It's awful. Silly. It ruins the integrity of the game. No need for it. They clearly don't have to do it. It's taught to them to screw with other players. Like Martina says, it's arguably cheating because it interferes with the opposing player's ability to hear the ball come off the racquet. Put Sharapova, Azarenka, Venus and Larcher de Brito in a doubles match and you'd cause actual deafness in the people in the crowd.
