    Will the ATP and WTA ever do anything about the noise making?

    Someone said this that if you put laxative in their drink it would deter them from grunting during a match. :)

    Now that I think about it Azarenka can keep making noise it sounds like she is making a porn movie.

    We need a "grunt rating" system. I actually think it's working against Ivanovic. Her's sounds like she's struggling to make a shot.

    It's not gonna happen! LOL

    The grunts shall live on as part of the tennis world environment...as part of the sports reporter's observations...as part of our endless complaints on websites like tennis-warehouse!

    Grunting is the snorting sound swine make when they are rooting around for food. What the WTA players do is scream. I've never heard any of them grunt.

  16. Close your eyes and listen to Venus Williams grunt. You'll think there's a genocide going on.

    The only reason Larcher de Brito has ever won a WTA match is because her grunts, which are louder than a jet engine and last about two and a half seconds, overpowers the opponent's eardrums, not her pathetic game. Any deaf tennis player would beat her easily.
