Scream Queen Final at AO 2012

Also known as the Decibel Derby.

Good luck to both players (and everyone's ear drums) :shock:

It seems like people on certain message boards unfairly lump Azarenka and Sharapova in the same group as "mindless ball bashers", but I think this match showed that Vika's game is considerably more versatile and consistent than Maria's. She dicatates from the middle of the court as well as anyone, and I was delighted by her lob/volley/touch shots.

It is a shame about her shrieking though. It honestly didn't seem as bad when both women were doing it. The only time I noticed it the whole match was when Maria got REALLY loud during crucial points towards the end of the first set.

Also, I am usually not one to comment on the looks of players, but I think Azarenka is the most attractive player on tour. Maybe it's the way she dresses or how she carries herself on court. She comes off as an athlete who happens to be beautiful, as opposed to someone beautiful who happens to be an athlete. Does that make sense? Not sure why that's more appealing to me, but it is.
