Put together Bovina and Dementieva in a doubles match and the result will be hilarious. I have witnessed it ;) It amounts in evil glances from the coach, but it's so funny :p

Venus (when she's really going for it, she sounds like a warrior).

Elena D (she has variations, but her grunt is SO distinctive, I can always tell if she's playing).

Maria Sharapova has the best grunt. Mary Pierce has a really feminine one when she grunts.

(copied from another thread on grunting awhile ago- some stuff I found on grunting)

Here’s a couple of quotes from the players on the subject of grunting:


"She was screaming at the top of her lungs.* This is the loudest that she's been in a long time that I've played her. It was extremely hard to concentrate and focus when I had this screaming going on. The balls are coming so fast and I'm hitting them so fast, it almost seems like (she's grunting) all the time… Sometimes it's like interference. I don't know if something can be done outside the court, but she was really loud… Everyone grunts. I grunt. But I don't absolutely scream when I hit the ball. I don't think that's necessary." - JCap (complaining about Seles after a losing a match to her)

Russian teenager Maria Sharapova was ordered to tone down her grunting during her 6-3, 6-2 victory last year over Nathalie Dechy in the second round of the DFS Classic. “It's difficult for me because I have been doing this since I was four…. But I have to think about how I can control it. If you get a complaint you just have to try to make people happy.'' - M Sharapova.

“It was one of the loudest (grunts) I have heard. But I just played my match and tried not to care about it.'' - Natalie Dechy (commenting on Sharapova after their match)

Davenport said that it’s not a problem for her, saying that Serena Williams grunts louder than Monica. Lindsay did add, though, that it seems like both Seles' and Serena's grunting gets louder the closer the match is.

"I think people should be able to breathe and exhale they way they want to." -Venus Williams

"When I came on the tour, I was one of the loudest grunters. Nowadays, there are girls who are much louder than I am. I learned my lesson at 1992 Wimbledon when I was affected and then played terrible in the final. But I was young. -Monica Seles

"I know when I started playing tennis in my backyard I used to always grunt. I thought it was just a part of playing tennis and since then have incorporated it into my game. I actually used to like Iva Majoli’s grunt it kinda sounded like a cat hissing and that’s the grunt I copied. When I play people I can tell some time it annoys them, and that’s too bad cuz my intent isn’t to be a distraction- I honestly feel like it helps me and make me concentrate better."- Stefwhit

I guess it’s fair to say that Monica was the ‘first lady of grunt’. I know when she hit the scene a lot of fuss was made about her grunting too loud, and too often. In 1992 both Martina Navratilova and Nathalie Tauziat both complained about Monica’s grunting. Under the sport's `hindrance rule', a player can be penalized a point for excessive grunting, although I don't think that's actually ever happened. The grunting just helps in making things more dramatic for us spectators.

Seles is the original grunter..;)

I like Maria and Lena D's as well..
..though I wouldnt really call Maria's a grunt, its more like a scream or a shreik...its good when listening to audio of a match and you cant see the video - in a long rally you always know when its Masha hitting the ball..:D
