Sharapova's shrieks are very annoying.

But everything Mary Pierce does on court is annoying.

None of the others I find annoying.

Masha`s putting fingers to hair, getting it behind ears is the most annoying..

It looks like Mary hasn't played in so long some people have forgotten quite how annoying she really is! :lol: ........, Having said that I hope she will be playing again next season.

Definitely Justine's allez, especially after watching her this tournament. Opponent hits error = ALLEZ!!! If only her sportsmanship matched her skill.

i hate the way momo jumps to her chair. i don't particularly like her anyway, but that is especially annoying.
obviously loads of people hate the grunting. for some reason i don't mind sharapova grunting, but i hate kuznetsova's grunts and the williams sisters grunts. kuznetsova sounds totally like a man. when i was at wimbledon this year i was at the practice courts and i heard someone grunting really loudly. i thought it was fernando gonzalez but i turned the coner and it was kuznetsova. obviously her grunting goes with her manly hairstyle

I find the noise (grunting, shrieking) during the rallies really annoying and irritating, it makes tennis unwatchable at times. :sad:

Why's everyone complaining about Maria's grunting? :D It doesn't bother me at all. I think it's somehow sexy and fierce ;)

What is the most annoying on-court behavior? My favorite player (Venus Williams) losing. Next topic, please. ;)

I voted for Amelie jumping to her chair. I think she overdoes it sometimes. Btw, how does Nadia copy Amelie? :lol:

You mean Maria copying everything from other players: the elegant waves after the match from Venus; the "come on" from Kim!

Maria's court behavior grates my nerve. I can't stand it when she moves quickly to one side while receiving to try to throw her server off. I can't stand her yelling. I can't stand it when she puts the AIR behind her ears. Yes I said AIR because she doesn't even have hair thru her fingers when she does this. I can't stand it when she slaps her thighs and yells come on. I really can't stand it when she eats her banannas.


Lindsay. Omg when she mopes around after she won 6 straight games I find that annoying.

Mary Pierce's METHODICAL motions are nerve racking. She often takes away my suspense level while I'm watching a match. She takes ENTIRELY too long during points.

Dani, after certain shots she turns her back to her opponent.

Everything Nadia does is annoying as hell. Her expressions and her abuse to her person.


Elena's yells are so squeaky and annoying.

I enjoy Ai's return motion. Her rocking is cute. I like Amelie's new found confidence.

I voted for Maria's grunting but it's nowhere near as annoying as Zheng's overuse of fist pumping, I can't watch her play.:rolleyes:

Yet you realise nobody wants to copy ANY of her actions? Like putting imaginery hair behind her ears before serving?

Nov 12th, 2006, 02:47 AM
I actually like Sharapova's shrieks. Am I the only one? Hehe!

What I don't like is Sharapova shouting "vamos!" She doesn't even speak Spanish!:confused: Once I heard her shout come-os; can't decide what to shout I guess. But it's funny though.

Actually don't find the things in the poll annoying. I think it's good that every player brings something unique to the court.

maria shreiking, it's compltely unnecssary and it's annoying that players don't make more of a fuss about it.

Nov 12th, 2006, 03:07 AM
Maria's shrieks are by far my least favorite. I don't like how much time Pierce takes on serve. And I don't like Amy Frazier's return of serve motion. Other than those 3 no other oncourt behavior on the women's side bothers me.

In reading this post and just looking at the names only, I concluded that Maria and Justine are the two most polarizing players. Hence, most of the Maria haters will select Maria, most of the Justine haters will select Justine, and the girl with the third most votes probably has the most annoying on-court behavior to the average or unbiased fan ..

Mary's habit of fixing her ponytail every other serve. Though I have to say its pale in comparison to Novak Djokovic dribbles.

Nov 12th, 2006, 05:03 AM
hmm...when justine does her "ALLEZ" after her opponent misses a shot...its so not cool...
I am not a juju hater but i think that particular act is very annoying:mad: .

the maria shriek is also annoying, i was watching her a match a few months ago and my father walked across the TV and he stopped, asked me "What the heck is that sound?" i told him, "its Maria Sharapova's shriek..." he looked and turned away w/o even saying anything more... i dont think he is pleased with her grunting.

my father doesnt even bother to watch tennis but he was so annoyed with the shriek that he gave tennis matches a look...:o

I think it's annoying how Justine CONSTANTLY is looking at her box during a match. Just play b*tch!!! Everything Jankovic does on court is annoying IMO. I'm starting to get annoyed with Momo's jumps and sprints to her chair even after being broken :confused: It was cute at first, now it's old.

No contest. Mairia Sharapova of course. She makes TOO MUCH noise while playing.

I know this is WTA based but I do not think any of the players on the WTA compare with Nadals antics and towelling off after each point/serve/faul etc

^^^ agree. Rafa's antics are really worst. He should be disqualified for too much delay.

I'm not really disturbed by any of the factors you've mentioned in the poll to be honest. But there are other things that get me tired off:P, for instance the incredible defense of Mauresmo:p, Jankovic always trying to get the public on her side in a not likely way. Surprisingly I am not anymore disturbed by the double faults of Dementieva. The unforced errors of the Williams sisters:p.

Conclusions:
Justine + Maria = THE MOST UNSPORT BEHAVIOR ON THE COURT.
And Justine will number one...What a shame...

Amélie's routine before serving :mad:
First, she claps her hand against the racquet head
then jumps a few times
and finally she prepares to serve.

Can't she just skip those 2 silly routines and just serve? :fiery:

Selah
Nov 12th, 2006, 11:10 AM
For me it is Maria's constant placement of her hair behind her ears and Mary Peirce's fucking tourettes- like- fidgeting- can't stand either to the point that I sometimes can't enjoy the match. Noises don't really bother me. Constant ball bouncing annoys me as well (can't think who right now).

I hate the shrieking of all the shriekers. Apart from that nothing really annoys me. I love Amelie's running/jumping routine, Mary's faffing about between points, and anyone who hits/screams/swears at themselves. I even love Matina's cocky perma-grin. A lot of male players annoy me though.

this is me
Nov 12th, 2006, 10:14 PM
Most of them get on my nerves today…With all the fist pumping, grunting/ridiculous noise making and general on courts theatrics…Not to mention the never ending bath room breaks and visits by the trainer....
