Is it just me or Sharapova has a different grunt now?

It's lower pitched and I think it's sexier I started noticing it from her matches at Rome.

Re: Is it just me or Sharapova has a different grunt now?

My favourite is the one she uses in this video, it's eargasmic, I would definately watch more of her matches if she used it now


The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Remember that 2005 Australian Open Semi, where when serena got on a roll all maria seemed to do was scream louder and louder

Queen Vee, Super Rena, Krazy Kuzzie

The high pitch one is appropriate now since this match with Li Na is such a shitfest horror show.

Nope. She still sounds like an owl getting shot.

It'd be nice if she gave up her cheating ways altogether.

Well, if her opponent is Serena, I'm sure her grunt either is in lower pitch or is non-existent.

It changes, sometimes she does the old one, or the lower one or whatever.
