Looking at this vid, I have to laugh at those that belive that all grunters are the same. Even the worst ATP grunter isn't half as annoying as a Shriekapova/Azarenka.

Thankfully that DeBrito chick is so low in the rankings that we don't get to see a lot of her in the later stages of important tournies.

Imagine the SF of a tourney consisting of Sharapova/Azarenka/DeBrito/some poor schmuck. You would have to hand out earplugs to all the unfortunate souls in the crowd.
Sharapova definitely took the grunting beyond over the top here. I would also say though that this is the turning point in their rivalry, and Serena was lucky to escape those 3 match points. Winning must have been so sweet.
