Queens of scream set for decibel duel

27 January 2012, 15:19

Victoria Azarenka could just scream when she hears yet another question about Saturday's Australian Open women's final against Maria Sharapova, a match-up between two of the loudest women in the game.

"Oh, my God. Every, every press conference. Can you surprise me sometimes with a different question?" said the exasperated third seed after light preparations on Friday for the Saturday night spectacular against her Russian rival in the decibel department.

Between them, the shrieking slammers raise a racket, with Sharapova's grunt measured at nearly 100 decibels at fever-pitch. Azarenka has a different sonic slant, but one that has drawn just as much criticism from those who think players should be more seen than heard.

"Whatever people call us, you know. I respect every opinion. That's it for me," said Azaranka, hoping to seal the subject.
