Re: Screaming while hitting
Actually, my daughter was told by several coaches that it might help to
vocalize. Not scream, but certainly to make some noise. And, my daughter
has found that she feels she has more power when she makes noise, but it
is difficult not to be self-conscious about it. So, she doesn't do it.
But if a player can do it without being self-conscious, why not? There
is also the psychological factor for the opponent as well, because
perhaps they'll think the ball is coming faster when perhaps it isn't.
And who knows? Maybe Sharapova's dad *did* tell her to grunt/scream.
