The screaming in women’s tennis has got to go. This keeps many people from watching women’s tennis and also detracts from the game. I can’t help but to think it hurts endorsements, too. The worst offenders in women’s tennis are Sharapova and Azarenka. Watching and hearing Sharapova play against Halep in the finals of the Madrid Open made my blood boil and by the end of the match everyone in my house wanted to gag her because she was that annoying. The only reason I didn’t mute the sound was because I wanted to hear commentary about Halep. She reamed Sharapova in the first set.
I’m sure Sharapova is a nice girl, but due to her schrilly voice I have come to hate her on the tennis court and that is just sad. I don’t feel this way about other professional tennis players. It’s disappointing that tennis officials let this happen. Even now while she is having a hard time against Pironkova in the French Open, it’s disconcerting that she gets louder as the point progresses, having a total shotgasm.
