Sure, the guys don't normally break the sound barrier with their expressive efforts. Maybe it gets to the point where Azarenka and Sharapova are trying to intimidate via vocal cords.
Yet though, I'm still pulling for Nadal, the never-say-die champion of champions to win again ...
Kuznetsova is playing great. Too bad she has Serena in the quarterfinals so will probably lose. Had Serena not been hitting a new clay peak it would have been Kuzy's 3rd slam here.
Kuznetsova has snuck deep into the draw and I hardly noticed. Go her! American women are surprising. Glad Haas keeps winning because he is hot. :-)
Roger is killing me today. Knew this match would probably be tough but I don't think I can watch anymore.
I can't listen to Errani, either. I'd add her to Sharapova and Azarenka.
But meanwhile WTF Roger??? He's self destructing against Simon ever since the fall. Crap.
Roger looks back on form now. I'm nervous about Tsonga though.
And the streak of quarterfinals or better at a GS continues!
Simon really took it to Federer there - that was a tough win!! Tsonga is going to be tougher though - should be an awesome match however!!
[QUOTE=Lara;3932622]I can't listen to Errani, either. I'd add her to Sharapova and Azarenka.
Next week's matchups include...Schiavone vs. Azarenka!
SCHIAVONE VS. AZARENKA!!!
(Got those earplugs ready, Lara?)

Wawrinka vs Gasquet was always going to be a heartbreaker as I admire both men very much. Still Wawrinka came back from 2 sets down to win 8-6 in the 5th - wow!!
Stan the man!!
Jelana doing all she can to finish her match tonight!!!!
ETA: And she did!!!
Federer down 2 sets to love. Tsonga is looking too good, I don't know if Federer has a chance coming back unless Tsonga self implodes. Anything is possible with Federer, though.

Why are we still discussing grunting in the ladies game. The current players grunt, shriek, scream .. whatever you want to call it. You can't ask 25 year old women who have 6 to 8 years left in their career to stop it after being allowed to do since they were 10 years old.
The WTA is taking efforts to curb it with the young players.
Also, the WOMEN are being picked on for grunting then the men need to be too. I think it's sexist for those who bring up this issue for the women players but say NOTHING about the men who grunt. 70% of the top 25 men's player grunt yet I don't hear any calls to restrict their noises.

Can players where earplugs if the shrieks really bother them? As for viewers, if possible, turn on your closed captioning. This way, you get the commentary without the shrieking and grunting. I find it to be very helpful in general.
At work so only watching scores but the Jankivic-Sharapova match seems bizarre do far. Would love to see Jank pull the upset but Maria seems to have woken up in the 2nd set....
