Victoria Azarenka claimed female players are unfairly pilloried for their on-court shrieking and grunting and blasted boozy Wimbledon fans for mocking her as well as rivals Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova.

Azarenka and Williams cranked up the volume on Centre Court on Tuesday during their grueling quarterfinal, which the American won 3-6, 6-2, 6-3 to set up a semifinal clash with Sharapova.

As the encounter's tension increased, so did the mimicry of the fans inside the 15,000-capacity arena.
