I mean, with all the talk lately about vika being heard from centre court ( :lol: ), and how her grunts are fake. anyway i noticed she didn't grunt when she hit one, so at least it wasn't that bad. i dont think sharapova does it as well.

have you noticed anyone who shrieked when hitting a dropshot, i mean that would just be fake as hell.

Well, some pushers screams like their baby is giving them an orgasm when they're giving birth. That's beyond fake.

So I'm pretty sure they grunt when they hit a dropshot.
Plus, if you grunt while doing so, it can "hide" a little bit more your strategy/confuse the opponent.

Elena too...Elena brings sonic warfare to a new level. Decibels? Try pitches, bitches.
It telegraphs her shot though.

Lena's most devastating sonic strikes are reserved for her post-error shrieks.

Although I'm pretty certain her post-Olympic screams broke windows as far away as Shanghai.:hearts:

The other weird thing about Lena D. is she grunts before she hits the ball.

Actually, Maria has done it.

Plenty have done it. By "shrieking" I guess you mean grunting.

It's not that ridiculous.. playing a drop shot can take a lot of effort. There are different approaches. You can use careful touch and placement to give it a much softer feel... or you can really try to put some extreme spin on the shot and be aggressive with it and in that case I wouldnt be too bothered by a yell or scream.

MLB has done it many times in one match, and it was real shriek huge ones.

It's not that ridiculous. Sometimes the antcipation of getting to the drop shot in time is so high that when a player reaches it and hits it over the net, its the release of all that build up. I've seen quite a few players grunt while smacking a drop shot over the net.

I think it was more when a player is hitting a drop shot, not when a player is hitting a drop shot back.

:spit: My bad. I read it wrong. :o

I'm certainly guilty to this crime though. :lol:

interesting, although i think that would make a case for over the top grunting being considered foulplay

:rolls: If that makes Sharapova fans sleep better at night...

I know Venus has shrieked when hitting some powderpuff volleys...

I wanted to watch some vintage Ivanovic, so I was going through the HLs of her FO 08, and I came across this:
