Exactly, she has said several times that the noise is simply part of her breathing technique, if people would actually listen to her instead of foaming around the mouth this would be a non-issue.

It's how she plays and she would be absolutely crazy to change something that has gotten her to where she is now.

I can clearly hear noise, are you deaf? Oh that´s right you expect full blown adult noise from a 13 year old and the same sensitive all court sound system coverage as in a million dollar WTA main tour tournament.

Re: Azarenka's Grunting Proved a Sham

The grunting issue needs to be solved as it is a massive business issue for the WTA.
It's driving fans away from the game.

Nonsense. You think people would rather watch Radwanska vs. Errani instead of Vika vs. Sharapova just because they make noise? Please..

The WTA has already said that nothing will be done in this regard, all measures only affect future players which is the right thing to do. They would be crazy forcing two of the world's top players that have by far the most interesting rivalry right now to change.

Agree, yet I'd rather to see TF without you though.

Back to this thread's topic.
These vids provided by the OP proved nothing.
In other words, that's a fail thread.

Re: Azarenka's Grunting Proved a Sham

This is the most hilarious highlights video ever. Azarenka shrieks last almost until the ball's on Pennetta's racket, then from 6:45 she forgot to add that stupid fake shriek



Oh, how joyful would WTA's final rounds be if Vuvurenka/Screamapova stopped their fake shrieking altogether.

Re: Azarenka's Grunting Proved a Sham

The thread title and peoples' defensive responses is a bit over the top , but these videos prove that Vika did not always grunt. Basically, the Vika grunt as we know it is not in these videos. Even today, when getting dinged, she doesn't shriek/grunt as much.

In the same vein, I noticed in the clip from the Schaul/Maria match (when it was in the Schaul thread) that Maria was not grunting for all intents and purposes. Even if she had minute grunts at "0.35, 0.54, 1.25, 1.45," for the most part she is not doing the Sharapova grunt/shriek as we know it. Both claims that they always did it are b.s. They both have made concentrated efforts to use the grunt. Same as the other players who have used it.

What I find interesting in this clip is seeing Vika's outrageous service motion and her petulance at losing. Maybe Vika serve would be better if she started doing that little back-kick again.

As well, was that her as a young fire-bug? Who was that girl with the match? Vika?

Awesome, breathing technique my ass, if someone believes in this

I don't mind the shrieking that much, but it's clearly a tactical thing when it becomes that exaggerated and then stops, which happens very often at some point of Maria and Vika's matches.

Many others do this aswell, but it's not that loud so no one cares.
As long as there is no uprising of the other players, who cares, i mean if it were that much of a deal for all of them the WTA would have banned it already.

Re: Azarenka's Grunting Proved a Sham

Her and Sharapova are the biggest cheaters in the game. Vile characters that will stoop as low as screaming on every shot to put opponents off - yet the other players are too scared to speak up. Sad.
