    Turned tele on, watched it for about 20 seconds, turned it off cos it made me feel "awkward".

    I mean, is it really necessary?!

    'Shrieking Sharapova' is one of the worst IMHO it goes on and on and sounds like she is having an orgasm! When you get anothert one on the opposite side of the net doing the same it is intolerable and I can't watch however good the tennis is.

    Monica Seles was the worst.

    Totally unnecessary and used as a distraction in my opinion.

    US Open later this year is bringing in a shot clock, as too many take advantage of being able to take only 25 seconds between points. Nadal is so boring for this exact reason. Wanting a towel after most points even though he wears a headband. Picking his ass out of his shorts and pulling his t shirt off both his shoulders. Umpires are too intimidated to tell the legend to get on with it. With a shot clock he's got no choice. Hope it's brought in at every tournament.

    Djokovic is an actual joke with that.

    I can’t work out if it’s tactical or his superstitious routine.

    Totally off putting. Like others have said, if it gets really bad, I turn the TV over.

    A shot clock is a great idea

    I think a lot of the women do it to increase their exposure and therefore their marketability and personal wealth. Key example drugapova

    We used to call her Miss Piggy, with all her grunts.

    I’m sure the grunting was banned at one time. It takes extra effort to grunt so I can’t see why they do it.
