Re: Maria Sharapova Supports Grunting Ban

I didn't say that grunting/shrieking should be banned. I'm just saying that the noise on the WTA tour is louder and more prevalent than on the ATP tour. You'd have to be very biased to not notice that.
it's natural that tonality of women voice is higher. As for prevalence , how many WTA players in top 100 are grunting /shrieking? Not that much if we calculate it. Masha/Vika are just too prominant players but it's not there are 100 Mashas in WTA

As for men , in long rallies in the USO Final after 7-8 shots in rally all the rest were with heavy grunts from both sides (up to 40 shots)
