OMG Caroline doesn't grunt or scream. How disgusting! A disgrace, another proof she's not worth the No. 1 spot.

This.
Good decision, but I also hope they take action against blatant cheating attempts and that Wozniacki agrees.

Re: WTA starts to take action against grunters, Wozniacki agrees.

Michelle Larcher de Brito

The Portuguese player's yelps led to an opponent at the 2009 French Open complaining to the umpire. She has also been known to greet her opponents' mistakes with similar shrieks. Her scream is the loudest among the top players, just 11 decibels quieter than a chainsaw.

Annoyance rating 5/5



Uhh... she stopped screaming like 2 years ago...

Just a remainder - 10dB difference means 10 times as loud.

Re: WTA starts to take action against grunters, Wozniacki agrees.

When someone like Azarenka says it's natural and she can't stop it, it's bullshit.
Even Djokovic, Nadal, Kirilenko, Sharapova can turn it on/off.

Yes. Well, Sharapova will not grunt in one occassion though, when facing Serena. because even if she grunts, it doesn't make the outcome any difference, maybe just more drama.

Re: WTA starts to take action against grunters, Wozniacki agrees.

Grunting/shrieking = cheating, really. >>HERE<<

On the other hand, experts say excessive grunting lowers performance of the player who is performing it, so...

In the end it's more about spectators' comfort, or lack thereof.

Really? You can enjoy watching a Sharapova vs Vika match at normal volume level and it doesn't bother you? I can't, the neighbors probably think I`m watching porn for two hours straight...

no it doesnt

i actually think its hilarious.

my tv runs at a volume of 15 all the time, i dont need to have it that loud to hear it. you certainly dont have to have it on 30 to watch a match.

to be honest what causes me to mute my tv more is the crap spewing out of the commentators mouths

Re: WTA starts to take action against grunters, Wozniacki agrees.

I'm surprised no one has mentioned Venus. She grunts more often and louder than Serena IMO. It's quite amusing when she gets into a long rally with Maria.
