*nods* - At the other hand it's not as loud anymore - I however prefer her old kinda type of grunting - I have no idea either why she suddenly changed it

Well I was craving a cigarette the whole time, so my judgement may have been clouded but yeah I did love the use of DTL and angles that she was displaying.

Completely agree, and I gotta say I preferred her more loud, fierce shrieking version. It felt genuine and natural, and it never bothered me in the slightest bit, but this new stuff... I don't know, it just doesn't sound like Maria

@Fine_Life Just turned it on. What a bad mood? Did she utter "SHE MADE YOU" to Sloane during changeover

Jane Carruthers ‏@Fine_Life 3h
@TennisReporters Ha! That would be something. She just looks thoroughly fed up..


Maria was probably just thinking "THIS girl beat Serena?"

Re: Rome 2013 - 3 is a magic number

Mark where did you get the quote about Sloane saying Maria has a bad serve? I wanna read that in context.

Maria might serve doubles, but as long as more second serves go in than out, her 1st serve % doesn't mean much 'cus her second is that good. Despite it's flaws, every girl on tour that isn't Serena, Stosur and Petrova would swap theirs for it in the morning.

I've never been a fan of grunting myself. Not that it bothers me that much, but without it I think that Maria would be even more popular than she already is. It's the only thing about her that some tennis fans don't like.

As for the delayed grunt - it's a bit like Vika's in that regard now, ain't it? If they keep evolving in that direction they will at one point when they play each other grunt when the other one hits the ball.

Re: Rome 2013 - 3 is a magic number

She was feeling under the weather in Madrid, so I guess that has affected her grunt.

I'm already getting tired just thinking about her next match. I hope it won't be too difficult for Maria.

Re: Rome 2013 - 3 is a magic number

Yeah although it's quieter now I don't like the "new" grunt either. First of all because it reminds me of Vika's grunt and second because it's a bit delayed and it just doesn't feel like a natural thing like her previous one. Sometimes it seems like she forgets to use it and she remembers it after she's hit the shot But I don't understand how it just changed like that all of a sudden. I mean I can't imagine Maria was like "yeah I should change my grunt cause I want to sound like Victoria"

I don't really think she thinks about how she grunts, it's just lower, but whoever knows why

Re: Rome 2013 - 3 is a magic number

Did not manage to get on-line since yesterday afternoon. Another good win for Maria, it seems. Errani could end up being one of Maria's punchbag but today she's in front of the hone crowd and I'm sure she will fight hard. Nevertheless, Maria is a far better player and I expect her to win.
