Agnieszka Radwanska Tuesday backed a push to tone down undignified screaming by women's players -- and said the high-decibel grunts made the game unappealing to watch.

Speaking after her Australian Open quarter-final loss to notorious screamer Victoria Azarenka, Radwanska agreed the Women's Tennis Association (WTA) needed to limit noisy play.

The issue has emerged at the Australian Open after large sections of the crowd mimicked Azarenka during her second-round match against Casey Dellacqua.

It again surfaced following Maria Sharapova's win over Sabine Lisicki on Monday, during which the Russian's screams became louder as tensions built in the match.

"I don't think it's very necessary to scream that loud, so if they (WTA) want to do something, why not?" Radwanska said.

"I don't think this is very nice to watch, you know, those kind of players that scream so much all the time."
