I think Anna's stats in grunting terms are taken from back in her early years. Footage of her as a junior showed her classic Bolleteri grunt which she dropped as an adult.

Poor journalism. Azarenka's wIl isn't 'short'. And the list is inaccurate. It's obviously written on the band wagon by someone who is rarely a tennis spectator.

Kim in the list while players who grunt quite regularly are missing???

Kim,Anna K:confused: I don't think so! Early deep grunter I remember as a kid was Gabi Sabatini

Golden Goddess Lenochka and Queen Masha at both ends of the chart, a sign of its creditability :bowdown:

Are you surprised? The British press doesn't care about women's tennis. :lol:

Monica hasn't played for nearly a decade! I think this issue is blown out of all proportion.

If Kim is, then Vera should also be on the list...

Petkovic

I think Schiavone should be on the list too. Her AHIIIII is way more noticeable than Kim's occasional 'grunts'

Daily Telegraph :silly:
This is just stupid even Justine's are louder than Kim's mouse grunts. It seems they just put random tennis player into it except Maria who is truly the Queen of grunts. I think it will be more accurate if we put a thread of that then these guys on that article.

Why is the British press so obsessed with grunting? It's weird. Is it merely used to hide the fact they know nothing about the actual tennis?

Kim :lol: She makes loud noise like twice a year.

This grunting is a major problem. I have proof. Top ten list. We have three retired players, three semi-retired players, two players who are on TV every three years and Sharapova/Azarenka.

:rolleyes:

This could have been a reasonable article. But when they start putting Kim in the list - they lose any credibility they had and show a complete lack of research and knowledge.

Yes she is one of the noisiest , with her loud serving, obscene sounding one, her usual, and a few specials thrown in as well, she could well be the most all round sound polluting of the lot !:)

Of course, my main point in posting this list was to point out how adorable #10 was with bangs.

And to see who people thought belonged on the list. Agree Whoopie, Lil" Masha and Franny should be on it.

I first checked about Azarenka where they said "...favouring the short, sharp cry" - stopped reading after that :spit:

Love that at the time this article comes out and the links to youtube pointed out, all of those accounts are blocked and those videos can not be seen now :lol:

They're just bitter that the last time a British male did anything significant in this sport was over like 80 years ago and the last time a female did anything significant was like almost 40 years ago. :lol:
