No, no. The title doesn’t imply an adult flick. It links some of the best tennis players around. What do Serena and Venus Williams, Maria Sharapova, Victoria Azarenka, and many others have in common? Just as they can raise their game in tough situations, they can raise their volumes equally well or maybe even better during a game.
Another player who joined the club during the Australian Open of 2011 was Sandra Zahlavova of the Czech Republic. During the second round clash at the Rod Laver Arena, spectators were in desperate need of earplugs in the middle of a point.
Zahlavova was at the peak of her voice ever since she served. The usually vocal Venus Williams was unusually quiet, allowing her opponent to exhibit the potential of her vocal chords. As old habits die hard, Williams tried showing her opponent who’s the boss, exhibiting a scream straight out of a horror flick while trying a return lob.
Zahlavova would not have any of it and bettered Williams in winning the point, as well as in the vocal test. The icing on the cake was that she signed off the point, smashing a winner down the line with an equally long scream.
The crowd were thoroughly entertained. Although some of them would have certainly had their appointments fixed at their ENTs the next day.
