    Am I out of the loop?

    Last week while watching Tulsa play TCU in the NCAA Tennis 64's, the TCU team used the yell, "What!" in the place of the standard "C'mon!"
    Anyone heard of this before?

    Funny.

    Perhaps they are trying to start a trend.

    Hmmm.... one could start saying:

    - WAZZZZZUUPPPP!
    - Don't Taze me bro!
    - Rastaman!
    - Mother Lover! (courtesy of SNL)
    - Dyno-mite!

    sometimes i see top juniors or DI players yelling out stuff like "hey!" as their grunt lol. then throughout the match they yell different stuff to distract their opponent, it's really fun to watch.

    Been saying that for years, especially if you are playing someone younger than you, or someone you are higher than on the tennis totem pole.

    Also appropriate to tack a "Son" or "Junior" on the end of it while looking at them with an angry glare. Usually they know you are just messin though.

    We recently picked up "Any questions!!" after a winner. Maybe we just cut it down to "Questions!"?

    ...AWKWARD.

    Well, I have seen enough people who have two handed backhand WITH sleeveless shirt and yell "VAMOS" when they hit a winner.

    So I'll go like "...ohh... okay?"

    They're yelling ROGER! as in roger federer, when they hit a 1hbh winner and its only in practices when we're goofing around.

    i hate people who shout "WHAT" after a point because its extremely arrogant. "CMON" is okay since its projected to oneself and is used to improve motivation. But "WHAT" is somewhat insulting to the opponent anyone agree?

    I was talking about a college team (TCU) and a college match can get very vocal. This one did anyway. I love it! I love college tennis for this reason.
    WHAT!!!

    Yea I use it, I think i got it from basketball and started using it on the tennis court, i assume others have done the same, it derives from i guess a "what b*@$h" or "what you got on that" sorta trash talk, its pretty urban i guess so to many tennis players it might b unfamiliar but its been around for a while

    I know a kid that yelled 'Roger' while setting up for a shot when he hit a winner and his opponent asked

    "Did you call that out?"
    "No, I said 'Roger'"

    Exactly it is bad mouthing your opponent. But for them it just makes them feel that much better when they win:)

    I like the creativity I'm seeing here. It's gets really old having to listen to "C'mon!!" all the time, and it's pretty annoying, I think.

    For some time, I've been yelling "Ria!! (with a long "I"). It's "air" backwards

    When you hit the ball you just gotta make your grunt sound a little bit like the word 'no' so that your opponent always thinks you're calling the ball out. It gets quite comical.
