Serena And Azerenka Combine For The Loudest Point In Wimbledon History
If you haven't been watching world number one Serena Williams' Wimbledon quarterfinal battle with Victoria Azarenka, you're missing out on some great tennis. We urge you to check it out -- just make you have the volume turned all the way down, lest you want your boss to think you're watching something you probably shouldn't be watching at work.
These two are making it sound like they're giving birth to each point on the center court at The All England Club. Announcers have even invoked "The Hinderance Rule," which basically says screaming can count as an act of unsportsmanlike conduct.
"Rule 26. HINDRANCE
If a player is hindered in playing the point by a deliberate act of the opponent(s), the player shall win the point.
However, the point shall be replayed if a player is hindered in playing the point by either an unintentional act of the opponent(s), or something outside the player’s own control (not including a permanent fixture)."
You tell us, have Serena and Azarenka gone too far with the grunting, or should everybody loosen their knickers and let them play?
- Serena rallied to win her final two sets (6-2,6-3), securing a spot in the semis against Maria Sharapova who had her own unsportsmanlike moment today when American Coco Vandeweghe accused Sharapova of moving during her serve.
