    Serena Williams for sure :eek:

    I don't get the point of having a multiple option poll when you have only 3 options with the last being BOTH :confused:

    I Personally think both - specially Shreaikapova - does that on purpose - as I have seen her go quiet when she is under pressure & getting hit ) .

    I think both are BIG-BABIES , both act funny , they are like ->

    Shreikapova: " My Ball , Give it to me - aaarrrraagggggghhhhhhh"

    & Serena is like : "I fought with My Sis all my life - now I'm not gonna give it so easily , make me do it Bio*ch - uaaaarrrghhhhhh ".

    nuf said . garrrrrrrrrghhhhhhhhh.

    yeah but the shrieking makes it entertaining. it adds to the emotional battle between the players. i think sharapova's shriek changes a lot. it goes from a coo, to a more guttural unnngh and sometimes goes silent. but none of them beats monica seles. or arantxa's two tone bored grunt. or the japanese players who used to grunt the same like someone was hurting them (more victim grunt than take-this grunt)

    I find Serena's shrieking more annoying because I just don't like her, plus I find Sharapova totally HOT!

    i guess we do that's why we're discussing it. it never ceases to amaze me that people who "don't care" will read through a thread and go through the trouble of posting only to express how emphatically they "don't care".

    Everything about Sharapova annoys me, so it will not be tough guessing which option I checked. :)

    Yeah , Nadal is as much annoying as those two. Serena is a power player ( grunts suit her IMO ) - but Nadal & shreaikapova is purely annoying . NADAL also wastes time on purpose .

    Yeah, that's what I think too. I can tolerate Sharapova's because it makes me day dream of great things that could never happen with me and her.

    I voted for none. Grunting doesn´t bother me. Especially when Blondie is doing it, if anything it´s hot stuff. Schiavone has the funniest grunt ever. ¨Oooooo¨ She´s like an owl. But she grunts well after the ball was hit. She actually grunts once the ball hits the opponents racquet.

    The noise that Kuerten makes is the most annoying sound I have ever heard from any tennis player. Watching him a few days ago made me so happy that he lost his match. I can't tolerate that retarded sound he makes.

    how can you talk about grunting without talking about monica seles? she has one of the bigger grunts out there. but like the other poster stated, sharapova can certainly do without, while as seles could not do it, and that it affects her play, evidently in the Wimbledon final against Graf. It's a total game of sportsmanship from Sharopova on her grunt. She is the daughter of Yuri Sharapov, what do you expect?

    i think if you read the earlier posts, there always were people talking about seles.

    i think jelena dokic has a weird "grunt" too. in person its much louder and therefore weirder. its like a loud exhale through lips and teeth. "whoosh!" it sounds low volume on tv so i never thought about it until i saw her play in person. that's why she makes that funny face i think, with her lips all thrust out.

    Seles was not at all loud. Her grunts, on tv, are greatly amplified by the on-court microphones. I have seen her play live and you can barely hear her. Too much was made of it in her case.

    They are both annoying. Maria is a mixure of Venus and Serena, she's the third tennis playing Williams sister.

    Regular grunters are really annoying. Though, I don't recall Serena being particularly noisy this past Australian Open. (Maria was always grunting loudly, for sure.)

    I Like Huntchukova - but as she is copying Shreikapova's every move ( serve routine , bunny hop , unreliability ) - she may start shreiking as well.
