Watching the girls singles final today , right from the outset she has been grunting similarly to Larcher De Brito , maybe not in volume but certainly in that racoon being skinned tone. I feel for women's tennis that one day Azarenka, Larcher De Brito and Mladenovic are deemed to be the future #1's of the tour.

I think in instances like this some action should be taken in order to stop this malarkey , it just isn't pleasant to watch.

I would have no problem with Larcher De Brito and Mladenovic not making successful transitions to the senior tour.

Do you realize Michelle will enter the Top 80 next Monday?

It's not like she won't make a successful transition to the senior tour. She already did that.

Maybe I should rephrase it , transition to the top of the women's game.

Somehow I don't think people would mind NL's grunts as her pitch is quite deep so it's similar to a man's grunt and it isn't throaty.

Yeah I read that
They showed a picture of her bedroom and there was a poster of Maria :lol:

I didn't see the match and I'm surprised she lost with such a great serve and forehand

Dont say bullshit please. Mladenovic is not like the shrieking babes of the tour such as azarenka,sharapova or worse mldb:rolleyes:

if you watch her matchs you would see that she never grunt,she did in that match cause it was a tough one and she felt her knee bothering her much.
So stop tying to give credit to the shriekers by saying every girl does it in junior.
That's pathetic. There's a difference between shrieking and grunting because of toughness.

I try not to be put off a player because she makes stupid noises. Do I like grunting/squealing? No....I think it should be banned

You can see and tell when a players making a genuine hard effort to make a shot but...some of the noise-making is beyond a joke. The coaches must be putting more emphasis on noise-making, than shot-making

Who grew up watching the Williams, who also grew up watching Monica Seles, the mother of all hard-hitting grunters. :hearts:
