Doesn't her management tell her to stop her screaming?

It probaly costs her millions of dollars!

So many people just don't like her because of her screaming. It's different with Sharapova. Her yells are different and not that annoying.

I actually really like her game but I never watch her games unless she's playing one of my favorites because of this horrible noise!

When Seles was criticize for her moaning I couldn't understand that. It just fit to her power game and I even kinda liked it.

But Azarenka is way to much! I can't stand that! It's rediculous!

screaming doesn't affect popularity or endorsements... just check what Sharapova is earning and how popular she is

Yes, there is a good number of trolls in internet who are writing here and there about shrieking , making this case look more significant... But it's more like fans of other players try to express their hatred

in 90% you hate Azarenka = you can't stand her vuvuzela , you are a Vikastan = you don't care about it

I've been watching women's tennise since Seles's time and just accustomed to screaming on court... It's not really a big issue

oh yeah i guess

Shrieking controversy is entirely media generated.

In Australia, Indian Wells, and now in New York, it's been barely mentioned in press, only as a passing issue or a quick joke. The crowd at the tournaments titter for a game or two, and move on.
At Wimbledon where grunting is a front line issue when discussing Women's tennis, you get far more murmurs on Centre Court, and actual jeering and mocking on the outer courts.

It's an issue, yes, because it's gamesmanship from some players. But let's not pretend your sensitive ass ears are a serious influence on the issue.

As for costing her money, how much has it cost Sharapova, or Serena, or Monica Seles?

And no, it's not more or less annoying than other players. Personally, I'm quite sure they could stop it, but when your biggest money-makers all do it, you don't mess with the golden goose.

Kirilenko is the worst offender by far. So unecessary.

People talk about Kvitova's bark, but Petra absolutely murders the ball.

I don't hear her, so she must have stopped. Or maybe she's not playing.

No. They are equally annoying.

I like Vika but I'd be lying if I said her grunt doesn't irk me. I feel like she would have alot more fans if she didn't grunt like she did because she plays very nice tennis sometimes.

Wait until Cadantu became the world no.1 :tape: anyway, I agree less grunting would be nice but neither I have problem with it. Some grunts are excruciating (Azarenka's, Sharapova's) but it's tennis I wanna see, so most of the time, it's not a big deal for me.

I am not an Azarenka fan (although I like her, she seems cool enough), but I am not annoyed in the least by her screaming. It doesn't bother me in the least and I almost never notice it. I was shocked to find out how loud it is, because it doesn't seem that way to me.

I dislike Sharapova and find her screams very aggravating, but I can watch her matches without wanting to commit suicide. I don't like how much louder they get when she is in trouble, though. Azarenka stays at the sameish level, I think. And Venus' death screams drove me crazy, even though I'm a big fan. She's not as bad in the last year or so.

So I guess it varies for everyone, regardless of fandom -- I think Azarenka can become much more marketable than she is now even with the screams.

She does it because she is the embodiment of Evil.

Well it's what's get her attention n media (bad or good, people is talking abt it) especially in her younger days, no one would hav notice her without her shreik...so now that she's a top playe, it's her signature thing, and u can't stop it. Ex. Maria's scream...monica's grunt...it's what makes them.

Not entirely true... During AO coverage this year, they had a grunt-o-meter for players with loud grunts and would show the decibels during certain rallies where a players grunt was louder than usual.

Not every sreaming is the same!

I don't mind Sharapova's and I even liked Seles' but Azarenka screams in a way that I can't stand!

Navratil
Sep 7th, 2012, 07:07 AM
.. and it sure does affect her popularity and that way her earnings!

She's # 1 but Ivanovic and way lower ranked players still do better with endorsement contracts!

Well, Azarenka doesn't look like Ana but she's not ugly ;)

azarenka would not be earning millions and millions of dollars as endorser even if she play quiet as a mouse
maria is noisy too but she earn millions
market power is about looks & charisma
azarenka lacks both to merit millions

ana is not earning more than azarenka because she is quieter player!
she is earning more coz she is more beautiful

Wrong. Vika has at least the same charisma as Shara, and she more physically attractive from the straight man's point of view (a great round ass compared to Shara's flat ass and ungainly body shape). Face is a matter of opinion but from my view Vika is clearly prettier.

As the poster Melly noted above, Vika's appeal suffers from a lack of relatability. This is different from charisma or looks.

I see this word popping up a lot in here and I really wonder how relatable top tennis players are to begin with.

How can people relate to Sharapova for example? Anybody else in here starting their own candy brand or wondering what to wear for their Letterman appearance next week? Probably not..

My point is, these girls enjoy a lifestyle that's miles away from the realities at least 95% of the users in here are facing every day so the relatability is limited to begin with, if you ask me.

In the end, it boils to down to being likable. So is Vika less likable than other top players? Surely not. She's funny, charming and despite her success she's downright modest (especially compared to some other players in the Top 10...)

no waist = no physical attraction for straight men.. And yes , 90% of physical attraction refers to the face....

for instance Jankovic has a better body than Kirilenko, but who cares?

You contradict yourself. If 90% of attraction is the face, then the waist clearly doesn't matter much.

And I think Masha has a better body than JJ and I'm a straight guy.
