I just don't know why a few players who don't do it don't start doing major, excessive whails whenever they hit the ball as if to take the mickey out of their opponent. If/when the umpire says anything they can claim it's involuntary.

Either that or, what happens if - after every single point - someone like Radwanska walks up to the umpire and complains? I mean EVERY single point - claiming that it distracts her own play. Surely it would make enough of a scene that it would attract tons of attention from the media - the likes of which the tour doesn't want.

The non-abusers haven't complained enough in the past about this and, without continued public mention of players complaining, the tour wont ever get to the point where they're embarrassed enough to actually get serious about it. If it became the main story about women's tennis during major events they would start getting serious imo. Sponsors would have a fit and commentators would have a field day.
