Actually I didn't mean all of them,
It's a pity though because Maria's a great player & looks nice but
Yikes my ears, my ears.
I usually end up supporting the one who doesn't shriek.
Yes......I do too, for that very reason!

Opponents can complain...but who would want to make an enemy of Scharapova? That glint in her eye makes me tremble...

Kvitova's recent addition of a schreech everytime she hits a winner or her opponent makes an error is equally unattractive - although I accept probably not as off putting to her opponent.

The shrieking is unecessary & has put me off womens tennis Today, that & the fact that it is simply not as good.
Its also cheating as it stops your opponent from gauging
your shots properly.
I dont mind a bit of grunting but all this ridiculous `woo poo`! stuff from Azarenka & the ear shattering shreiks from Maria does my head in.

Agree with most of that. Don't like painting all with the same brush though. Not all do it, and there are good players.  I don't like the ridiculous earsplitting theatrics.

I think that's different though BBH! The men tend to grunt, which I think helps them to hit the ball harder! Some of the women make similar noises which I don't mind at all, but the ones who make those ridiculous noises just for effect, get right up my nose!

Most people can't stand the shrieking can they? But...an awful lot of men make an awful lot of noise too  Whistle

Yep!.........I agree...
I totally agree as well.  I think it has to stop as it is so unfair to their opponent. And Azarenka said no matter what she would not stop. The problem is at what degree do they fine them or whatever, at what pitch do they say is too high?

Interesting tonight that Kvitova started screeching when she made a winner or when Aggie missed - never heard her do that before and hope she doesn't make it a habit!

More interesting still was that Azarenka made virtually no noise when playing Bartolli - certainly it was a dead match and she obviously hadn't any interest in being there but just shows that the screeching is deliberate.  She was booed off the court at the end - the crowd clearly didn't appreciate that she obviously couldn't be bothered to put on a show when they had paid good money to watch her (even though the match was worth $150,000 to the winner) ! 
Yes Alis that was interesting, i am sure they do it deliberatly, some of  the matches have been great, a least i can watch with out my heart racing and feeling sick, like when i watch Andy and so wont him to win !!

Kvitova is an amazing player. If she gets her whole game together she could be as dominant as Serena. I also really like Azarenka, in spite of the screeching, would say she's going to be Petra's main rival for a bit. Women's tennis is looking interesting again.

I can't stand the squealing either - puts me right off although you can turn the sound off - that makes it a bit more bearable.

I feel the same about the ridiculous screaming & screeching, otherwise I'm all for women's tennis, just not particularly following anyone at the mo.

As you say, Andy did not used to and now he does.  His noise has changed to be something like Djokovics.  I wondered if Andy tried it out to see if it would help & perhaps it has helped and so I wonder if it is something to do with the breathing, timing sort of thing. Since it is helping him I am all for it. When Djoker does it, it is louder and I always thought revolting as it sounds as if he is going to throw up. Andy used to sometimes make a quieter more passive noise. For him I prefer this more aggressive noise and when he does it, it is not obnoxious.

What should not be allowed is when they do it so loud and long as to put the other person off, such as Serena did not long ago and got a penalty for it. Rafa comes very close to that.

As a side note, my mother likes the noises as she can no longer see, she goes by the noises to keep up with the game!

Don't know why, but I find women's tennis a big turn-off these days.  I never used to be like that, but maybe it's all the dreadful squealing and screeching that goes on, something which I really don't see the need for.  I'm sure if they were threatened with the docking of points when they indulge in that behaviour it would soon stop!

Incidentally I think the same might be done to stop the male grunting and moaning.  Andy never used to do it, but he does now.  So what's changed?
