    Did you ask why she cheats? That screeching she does on every point is cheating because it
    obstructs the other player just as the player is about to hit the ball.  It is a learned behavior and
    it is outright cheating. When Petra is playing, I turn the channel. It’s just not worth watching any more. She needs to quit the screeching and I am not letting up. I am going to fight to have it banned … and Petra fined or kicked off the courts for doing it.
