Dude quit defending the indefensible. Just say you don't mind her grunt and that it's OK to do it (if that is your point). But there's no need to invent a fictitious storyline in the face of clear evidence to the contrary. Just because you are a fan doesn't mean you have to get lost in a web of defensive lies and deceit, twitching and flipping to the point of automatically qualifying to be the chief contortionist at Cirque du Soleil

Though it's common knowledge that Azarenka doesn't shriek on practice and Sharapova does. However if you watch a let or a fault and when this two hit the ball you couldn't hear anything, that just bugs me. Cause even if it's a let or fault if you hit it there should be a sound as they said it's part of their breathing. And Sharapova will do anything to win, just watch the Petrova match. Well with Vika go watch the Aggie match or the other over-exaggerated injuries she had.

I think Serena proved it can be removed from your game completely though Serena only grunts when the match goes on, she is quiet at the beginning, at the YEC no grunt at all.
So you think it's fair to grunt only when things are getting tough but being silent when it's not needed? That's something I don't understand. So many people are trying to proof that Azarenka and Sharapova produce their noises deliberately but when players are grunting/screaming obviously deliberately (since they only start to get loud in tight situations or when they are in trouble) nobody seems to care.

PS: Just a general remark (not directed at you): Azarenka's noise is far from being a grunt, it's a shriek or a howl or whatever but it's certainly not a grunt.

Re: Azarenka's Grunting Proved a Sham

Maybe it's just me, but calling their grunting "fake" is nonsense. Most of you probably never played tennis to say such a thing.
First of all, saying not grunting all the time = fake is just plain out stupid.
Secondly, you would think that in the little time in between shots they have, they wouldn't be thinking of how loud they are going to grunt. To play tennis you have to be extremely concentrated. If you were thinking about how you were gonna "force" your grunt, you would not be a top player.
Anyway, grunting to me is more of an intensity thing.

0.35, 0.54, 1.25, 1.45 - it's not twice in half an hour, it's 4 times in 2 minures..... she is shrieking from the start to the end of the video just having made several strikes without shrieking

Buy new earphones if you can't here it or go to audiologist

I think "grunt" is a collective term used for all the various noises (the reason why they don't say or write "shriek" is because that is an informal/vulgar slang)

OK even accepting that, you still come up short (cuz nowadays we all agree that Pova is not shrieking just merely 4 times in 2 minutes.

OK, thanks for the information! It's just that to me the term "grunt" sounds so terribly wrong to describe the sound Azarenka makes. Maybe it's also partly due to the fact that I have the dark/death metal kind of grunt in my mind when I hear this word.

actually 0.35, 0.54, 1.25, 1.45 means she was shrieking during these points , i didn't calculate all the shrieks....

Now i watched this video to the end it's just normal Sharapova's match with plenty of shrieking , so relax and take it easy ....

Sharapova sometimes even now can play 1 -2 points without shrieking , when she isn't taking much efforts

Sharpie’s launched Sugarpova and I think Vika should launch Stfuvika Gobstoppers. Peace and quiet for all of us at last.
