    I used to hate her shrieking to the point where I refused to watch her play. I've always hated Sharapova's more, but after watching Azarenka more the past 6 months, I've come to appreciate her all-around game.

    Yeah she choked that USO final, but her game is solid all around.

    Her strokes are much easier on the eyes than Sharapovas, and she doesn't do the Come On's as frequently.

    Plus, she's really easy on the eyes... :)

    OP, admit it. You got paid off.

    WTA management is a joke. Let's kick the can down the road... problem? What problem?

    I was courtside watching Granollers last week and was fully expecting an audible assault. To my pleasant surprise he was quite muted. Maybe he switches it on and off?

    ^^^^^ He knows you're a made man on the TW boards. Respect. :)

    I remember seeing him at Barca live - don't remember wearing ear protection.

    Is it just me, or has Vika turned down the volume on her shrieking? It's still offensive, but not quite as annoying as it used to be. Maybe ESPN is turning down the volume on their broadcasts of her!

    No one can bother me more than Granollers.

    It's because your ears have gotten used to it. It's like when you walk into a subway cart and it smells like sh*t, but after a while it doesn't smell bad anymore. You just get used to it whether you like it or not. The same can be said about anything. I bet the first day of being a garbage man sucks, but by day 90, you pretty much get used to it. A leaky garbage bag that smells like sour milk? Nothing compared to last week in Chinatown and the sh*t that goes on there. Yes, Azarenka - you are the bane of my existence. I had to hear that howel of your live and it makes me sick.

    She and Shara both have ugly games. Maria is prettier - hence I'd rather watch her. It's quite simple really.

    She's starting to get quite the diva attitude, don't like that too much in a player.

    How did the accident happen? In any case, try not to buy good quality hearing aids.

    Imagine a match between Azarenka vs Sharapova, with Evert and Shriver as commentators !! What an earful that would be. :twisted:

    I digress here. I still laugh at Djokovic's grunting. sounds like a bad case of hiccups.

    With your user name, I don't think she will be pleased with that :)
