    It can be from either the men's or women's side.

    Granollers beats him by a mile. Berloq is also heinous on the men's side.

    Azarenka and Sharapova on the women's side.

    All the bad ones have already been said, Granollers is especially horrible. Larcher De Brito and Venus on the women's side are atrocious too.

    The little girl in the Tennis Channel commercial with Rick Macci. The one where they wire her up with all the sensors. She screams so loud when she hits her practice serve its ridiculous. It's a shame they teach these kids these tactics at such an early age.

    Schiavone, Vika, Williams sisters, Masha - in that order. Don't really have any issues with guys grunting especially to the point where I have to hit the mute button in order to watch the match...

    what about that de brito character on the wta..:-?

    its a good job her ranking is too low to feature on tv much..where was she on recently Wimbledon did she have a run ??.

    she actually sounds like a freshly wounded moose..as does Victoria azarenka, :confused:

    Larcher De Brito, it doesn't even classify as a grunt.

    Yeah,I mean no one ever complains about the men but some are just as loud. I think it's just because the girls are more high pitched so it sounds more unnatural and annoying

    When Seles first busted onto the scene, her grunting was unbearable, but grunting is no big deal now.

    On the mens side, Ferrer for sure. I swear he never used to grunt this much but its made him unwatchable with sound. Everytime he hits the ball, he makes a sound like he's saying "Ehhhh" or "Air" it almost feels like its on a delay too. Its like hit-> pause -> Grunt.

    On the womens side, Azarenka. Sharapova is a close second but Vika's "hmoooooohhh" has to be the most anoying thing ever. How anyone can watch a match between those 2 women live is beyond me.

    Djokovic is normally fine, but he starts screaming like a maniac when he is playing a big point.

    Between Dolphin wailing from Aza and the high shriek from pova I'll take pova as the more annoying one.

    Seles is still to this day the worst that I heard. I can tune out almost anything anywhere, but I just couldn't listen to that "AHHHH EEEEEEEEE!!!" over and over again.

    Haha I had to look up some of these players grunts, and they're pretty bad.

    For me, Schiavone is the absolute WORST. She doesn't even sound like a human. Sharapova doesn't even grunt, she just screams..that IMO should not be allowed.

    For all of you people talking about Schiavone, she's retired now. You don't have to hear or see her grunt unless if you go to Youtube.

    Mmmmmk?

    toss-up between Azarenka and Schiavone. Until someone posts proof of her retirement, she's fair game for this poll.
