Azarenka's Grunting Proved a Sham

I know everyone has known that it is a shit excuse, but Sharapova and Azarenka still hide behind the excuse that they have been grunting their whole life. Here is Azarenka as a 13 Year Old:

Re: Azarenka's Grunting Proved a Sham

That's what he said. Martha has always grunted. And Vika added the grunt later.

Maybe she added the grunt when she fixed that serve.

Re: Azarenka's Grunting Proved a Sham

Azarenka is hiting when exhaling , so with more effort on shots she definitely would have grunt even in this video, but her vuvuzela sound nowadays looks a bit strange, because the power of shot doesn't influence the loudness. She can shriek hitting dropshot louder than 125 km/h DTL
Anyway, it doesn't bother me at all , she does it constantly, so all players may get accustomed to it

Re: Azarenka's Grunting Proved a Sham

Its always fun to see players when they were in that awkward teenage phase

Puberty has done Azarenka wonders

Re: Azarenka's Grunting Proved a Sham

To be fair to Vika, she is doing what Dokic (and a lot of other pro's are doing) and exhaling heavily when hitting the ball. Maybe she struggled with this, and added her shriek as a training technique to ensure she always did it. Watching the videos, you can see she doesn't always exhale, so as a coach it would be the perfect solution
