Random information on the term “Grunt”:
Grunting in tennis is the very loud noise, sometimes described as “shrieking” or “screaming”, made by some players while hitting their shots. It is prominent in both men’s and women’s tennis. Many players and spectators find it to be distracting or obnoxious above a certain sound level.
Monica Seles and Jimmy Connors are generally considered as the “grunt creator” in the women’s and men’s games respectively.[not in citation given] Examples of contemporary tennis players who notably grunt are Serena Williams, Venus Williams, Maria Sharapova, Victoria Azarenka, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic, David Ferrer and Gustavo Kuerten.
Many have called for grunting to be banned or at least be made punishable. In the 1988 US Open, Ivan Lendl complained about Andre Agassi’s grunting: “When Agassi went for a big shot, his grunt was much louder. It threw off my timing”. In the 2009 French Open, Aravane Rezaï complained to the umpire about Michelle Larcher de Brito’s “shrieking”, which led to a Grand Slam supervisor being brought to the court. No action was taken against Larcher de Brito and she was booed off the court. Afterwards former tennis player Martina Navratilova said that grunting was a form of cheating: “The grunting has reached an unacceptable level. It is cheating, pure and simple. It is time for something to be done”. She also cited Roger Federer as an example of a successful player who doesn’t grunt: “Roger Federer doesn’t make a noise when he hits the ball—go and listen”. The concern was not limited to mere distraction or unpleasantness. In particular, Navratilova was concerned that grunting drowned out the sound of the ball leaving the grunter’s racquet and prevented an experienced opponent from using that clue as to force and spin to address his or her reception of the ball and the return stroke. Another former player, Chris Evert, stopped short of labelling it as cheating but said: “I wouldn’t go that far [to say it’s cheating] but I think the grunts are getting louder and more shrill now with the current players”.
