Unbearable screaming. Makes women's tennis look (and hear) ridiculous.

The scary thing is I don't know which women's player you are talking about. Far too many of them scream and far too many have names that resemble "screamarova." But I assume you speak of Sharapova?

She changed her pre serve ritual but it's still annoying. Booooooooooooring, mechanical tennis. Sharapova has no touch at all, none, zilch, nada. She's terrible.

Could not disagree more. Sharapova is good for women's tennis, screams or no screams. She brings in fans because of her style and the way she looks(which is important since tennis is a business.) Also she CAN play tennis. She just needs to work on her serving. I for one hope she gets back on top.

Sharapova is a stupid ball basher with a boring horrible game.






That 99.9% of the people on these boards would be more then happy to play like.

I'm not getting the hate. I don't even notice the "screaming" much. I'm also not getting the hate for her game. What just because she doesn't come to net much. So what, if you can win from the baseline, why not? I personally would much rather watch players slug it out from the back of the court than someone that just charges the net all the time. That just makes me think that they aren't confident in their strokes. The only bad thing I find with Sharapova's game is that she just doesn't more all that well.

I agree. There are plenty of big hitters on the men's side that don't need to yell after they hit a point. The excuse that women do it to help with breathing is B.S. They do it for intimidation which is getting away from actually producing a good game that you don't need to battle someone psychologically. I wonder if anyone's ever head Soderling scream like a banshee everytime he belts his huge forehand. Coaches on the women's side should curb that behavior. It's beginning to serve as a crutch for their inability to play.

How exactly does she waste time in between points? I personally have never seen an instance where she has receive a warning for time violation. Nothing wrong with playing a little slow, as long as it's within time.

And yet, most fans come out to see her play more than other female player. They had her on center court despite she’s ranked #14. She’s that popular. Get a clue.

Perhaps the screaming would be (somewhat) bearable if she retained any game to win majors, but she's certainly in the twilight of her career, so all she has left to offer is....screaming.

If you so concern about Maria’s grunting, then you should be concern about Rafa’s annoying habits too..picking his @#!#, or wasting time between points, biting a trophy(ewwww). I can’t stand that either, but I still watch his match b/c I love tennis!

OMG, she was taking FOREVER between serves, catching tosses (and restarting her rituals EVERY single time), double-faulting, etc etc. Sometimes, with all the time she was taking, and Tanasugarn standing so still to receive serve, it felt like the action had frozen, or my livestream was hanging.

But Rafa's so-called bad habits don't annoy me. Maria's shrieking does. Hence my comment. I'm not sure I understand your logic that being annoyed by one automatically means being annoyed by the other. :confused:

Jeeze. Nostalgia means:

...which has nothing to do with Sharapva being in the twilight of her career.

The one thing Graf has over Maria is her skill in tennis. But when it comes to good look, Maria >>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Graf. It’s no contest.

Then tell that to every players on the tour that their career is coming to an end at 23. Good luck convincing them.
Your Venus at 30 still believe she can win a slam. And if you have been watching tennis, you would know !

I didn’t like the idea you complaint about her grunting and even suggested that she should change. But the fact is Nadal is way more annoying than her and you don’t say anything. Atleast I still can watch both players, but you make it sound like she’s ruining the game!

What? Most people in this thread agree her screaming is a total distraction. And I said I wished she could do something about it. That's all. Where did I say she was ruining the game? I think you're reading a bit too much into things here. And besides it's a personal opinion. If Rafa's habits bother you, that's your problem. They don't bother me. Maria's screaming bothers me but that's my problem too. If it doesn't affect your enjoyment of her game, good for you.

But most fans would rather see her play and that’s why she’s on center court. Other higher seeded women player – Venus, Schiavone, or Henin have to play on a smaller court. Hell, even high ranked men players – Nole and Roddick had to settle on smaller court. Maria is very attractive on the tour, her grunting doesn’t hurt her popularity. You are just a minority.

Her Qtr of the draw looks pretty easy. The only potential threats in there are Venus and Azarenka and I wouldn't bet money on either to win. It would be no surprise to see Sharapova in the semis.

Wow, since when did tennis became a popularity contest or a beauty contest? She's a terrible player and has annoying habbit of screaming after each hit.

She was pretty good, now she's terrible and she doesn't show any signs of improvement, her match against the Thai was really painful to watch.

Others have already pointed out (in this and the other MS thread) why she's in her twilight years, yet you cannot comprehend that it is her poor abilities, not age--which is the reason for her endless struggles.

You actually believe a player decline at the age of 23 then you are delusional.

This means little coming from the member who did not know the meaning of nostalgia.
