Re: Azarenka's Grunting Proved a Sham

Shouldnt this just be about funny videos of the number one ranked player and how you could see signs of her on court personality from an early age. Nothing is proved from a match from a 13 year old player.

Re: Azarenka's Grunting Proved a Sham

What a difference a year makes

WTA starts to take action against grunters, Wozniacki agrees.

I believe Vika when she says she doesn't do it to irritate her opponent and it's just a habit, still it is kind of unfair and highly annoying for the viewers.

I call that you`re deluded.

It's driving fans away from the game.

The WTA has already said that nothing will be done in this regard, all measures only affect future players which is the right thing to do. They would be crazy forcing two of the world's top players that have by far the most interesting rivalry right now to change.

It's how she plays and she would be absolutely crazy to change something that has gotten her to where she is now.

Matt01 did the same thing. Once Caro's fans saw her career take a nosedive they all started running for Vika's bandwagon.

Furzel owns you well, so now shut up.

So what happens when a friend or partner holds a different opinion against your favorite?

Kinda random, but does anyone else see a resemblance between her and the blond dancer, Brittany, on Glee?

Weird, I remember being in the live scoring thread for lots of abysmal matches when you were nowhere to be seen. Get of your high horse or go watch some golf.
