LONDON (Reuters) - Russian defending champion Maria Sharapova enjoyed a sun-soaked stroll into the Wimbledon quarter-finals Monday.

French pair Amelie Mauresmo and the revitalised Mary Pierce also coasted through to the last eight on a frantic day of action with all 16 fourth-round singles matches being played.

She's looking good ................ please feel fre to post what I am too stupid to post

"On the court she reminded me of the margay, a small wild cat, like a miniature leopard, that lives in the jungles of Central America. Her emerald-green eyes had the look of a creature who you knew would never quite belong to anyone but herself. She was still only “peanut-sized”, as her father, Yuri, called her, with long, skinny legs and arms, corn-blonde hair, braces on her teeth and a dusting of freckles on her nose. But when she went to strike the ball, her little cat-face would bunch into a snarl, her body would coil itself like a spring behind her racket, she would hurl herself at the ball and, with an ear-splitting banshee scream that sent shivers down your spine, unleash a laser-guided ground stroke." - Simon Worrall

I like her, she is a nice person, works hard, but I do take issue with her needless grunting.

She takes it to disturbing levels on the court and should have points taken from her until she shortens it from several seconds down to an instant.

but I do take issue with her needless grunting

As we have said before ....... that noise is needless and wrong. If I were on the other side of the net, back in the 60's, I would have asked that she quiet herself or I would not play! But, that is not the case now!

Can you imagine Rod Laver or John Newcomb making those noises when playing back in the good old days?............. then ask yourself.............. doesn't all of this noise (grunting) have something to do with the "me" generation?

It's needless as you say, but that is what she was taught as a kid. I hate it myself.....so get over it. It's not her fault. It was the way she was taught............ and it is SICKENING!

Who is louder, her or Syrena Williams? I mean why do they need to grunt so freaking loud? I could only take a few minutes yesterday of watching Syrena play because of that grunting. They make Monica Seles seem like Marcel Marceau by comparison.
