  • "If you thought Maria Sharapova's shrieking was over the top, you're right. The tennis glamazon makes almost as much noise as a power drill every time she hits the ball. An Environment Protection Authority officer measured the raucous Russian with a decibel counter during her match against quiet American Lindsay Davenport. Her loudest shrike was 71.5dB - louder than a vacuum cleaner (70dB) and approaching the level of a power drill (80dB)."
