It's warranted.

The only reason I'm not utterly p!ssed is because it's just kids. But this is not funny nor it should be allowed. Regardless of how ear piercing Azarenka's shrieks are.

Practice sessions are to practice in peace without people bothering you. I would secretly electrify that fence and connect it to an electronic switch.

Maybe they could shame her into quieting the grunting. It's silly. Even Serena has cut it out.
A guy at my club grunts really loud, and literally the entire club can hear it, since its indoors and sounds echo. It's embarrassing.
Ban grunting! Or just make fun of them every time they do it.

I hate her grunting, but it's still not as bad as Sharapova's.

Good for them. It's not like she doesn't know she's screaming like a stuck pig. I also don't believe it's involuntary. Watch the charity matches where they get girls mic'd up and they aren't that loud. I mean I understand grunting a little bit on a hard shot but she (and others) go too far.

is there anything worse than an arrogant french kid making fun of a pro athlete?

The whole grunting thing is so over-hated and over talked about... go play tennis.

I can understand the grunting somewhat when they're mashing topspin shots.

When she starts grunting just as loud on a defensive slice, then it gets extremely ridiculous.

Deserved. There is no reason for her to be making that sound.

French crowd trolling Azarenka (video) (http://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/showthread.php?p=6603893#post6603893)


Bit of a misleading title because its not really a 'French crowd' at all - just a few lairy 14yr old school kids on a day trip.

Azarenka's woooing is weird though. As is Sharaprova's mad shrieking.

Masha doesn't grunt when practicing.

Azarenka does.

Interesting.

Just because they're young doesn't make them any less French

But its not "the French crowd" supposedly "trolling" her.

You make it sound like there's a mob after her.

It's just a few lairy kids.

Interesting.

I noticed that, too. That leads me to believe Azarenka's grunt is involuntary, while Shrapova just grunts for the sake of grunting.

Right.

Kids grunting while she is practicing = bothering her and should not be allowed.

Azarenka howling while playing a match bothering her opponent = perfectly acceptable.

I see.

You got a point there. But unless it's regulated, it's worthless. The grunting by players, while annoying, might serve a purpose other than to cause the opponent to lose focus. If it also causes that, then it should be regulated.

Herbert von Federer is one very temperamental maestro when he is directing the crowd to STFU.

It's always nice to expand vocabulary - a better word than trolling in this case is "hectoring".

Strange, the sign behind the court shows a crocodile, but on the other side of the fence it is just some kind of whooping crane.

OK, I'll just make a copy of your ID and edit out your picture so that it doesn't cause orbital cancer to anybody looking at it. :)

I never watch Azarenka's matches because of her grunting, even when she plays with my favs. Even when I know that Serena is roasting her. Her grunting is nauseating.

Any player who shrieks like a banshee deserves to be mocked and ridiculed. This was just in practice session, but I'm pretty sure members of crowds in her matches at RG, Wimbledon and the Australian Open have all mocked her at some point.

The crowd in the Miami final in 2009 didn't mimic her but really found her annoying.

I'm trying to be extra lame these days to make you feel more at home.

For example, when you made mention of an inflatable Rafa doll, i could have instructed you about the existence of a "dedicated blowhole in the back" meaning that you don't know how to use it properly. Yes, that would have been funny, but at what expense? :)

Who is The Lone Wolf? You keep implying I'm that person. Any links?

as for The Lone Wolf you mention me mentioning, i have no idea... may be i typoed it... so sorry

Which in your case you seem to only attain occasionally via extensive trial and error. :)

I don't feel sorry for her at all. Her shrieks and Sharapova's are unacceptable and only serve to break the concentration of their opponents. The fact that the WTA hasn't warned them is outrageous.

It is actually an excellent comeback. You can't appreciate it, the same way that a blind person cannot appreciate the subtlety in the works of Rembrandt. Don't blame the artist, my dear friend. :)

Now, that was funny.

I can invite you, but will you attend after tomorrow's result? The tea room chairs are kind of hard, and they are not agreeable with the serious butthurt you will be in after Nadal wins a record 7 French Open titles.

Yup, what are athletes thinking?!? Who the heck grunts while exerting himself or herself?

Those NFL players drive me crazy too.

Sports should be played in slience.
