    What I would like to know is does the grunting improve their game ? the players male and female never used to make noises, apart from complaining I just dont get it !

    As others have mention there is a time and place for making noises and I dont think its on the court

    2 x Toyota Celica Gen. 5 ( Sold ) not missed as much as the above.

    The loudest grunter is Sharapova clearing over 100 dB, 109 being the highest. A chainsaw is 119 dB.

    I'd put up with her noise -even-and especially! - if she grunted like a chainsaw!

    What I find funny is how upset they get if someone in the crowd were to make a noise.
    That is enough to have a fit about. (as seen during the men's final)

    But it is Ok for them to make a hell of a racket

    Please remember that I think I'm funny

    thus take 90% of what I post with 2 pinches of salt
