VIDEO VAULT: Do we have another "Shriek"apova on our hands? You be the judge.

Rising Portuguese baller Michelle Larcher de Brito made noise and then some in Stanford, defeating Argetine Gisela Dulko 7-5, 7-6 (1) in the first round. The 15-year old qualifier will next face 8-time Grand Slammer Serena Williams for a spot in the third.

But what about the siren sound that comes out of Michelle's mug? I'm smelling Maria 2.o people and it's not pleasant. Are you?

  1. Like I said in the comment from Golovin I like all the WTA players, but yes..thats too much grunting..same with Sharapova and sometimes Serena and Venus.

    As a player I will stop the game and ask for official to moderate the screaming in the court. I did it before playing in the USTA and Im talking Men was ridiculous..

    Anyhow I guess its up to the player in the other side of the net to said something, in this case Gisela didnt care I guess.


  2. yeah men can grunt pretty loudly that's for sure. but the shrieks, especially these high-decibel ones, are pretty jarring for the people watching.

    i can't imagine what it must be like to play against someone who does that on EVERY point. aaargh.

  3. Geez. The scream is overdone, for sure.

    Nice muffin top too.
