Substitute yells instead of "Come On"
 
Hewitt popularized the yelling of Come on. Some yell Allaiz or Vamos. But are there any good English substitute yells for Come on which isn't very original.

I've heard "Lets GO."

"Bring it on baby."

Come on is great though and it just rolls off your tongue when you need to vent some pent up intensity.

If someone yelled that, I'd do everything in my power to hit them in the chest with a ball the next few games.

^ Intentionally trying to hit your opponent with the ball is Busch league.

"lets do this"

I go with "That's what I'm talking about" it's pretty annoying.

Agreed.

We have some women at our club who yell that, mostly from the stands...even on unforced errors from visiting teams...

Booyah!

Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead!

I was at the Oregon Challenger a few weeks ago, and it sounded like a couple of players shouted "MINE!" after hitting winners.

Personally, I favor "suck it, Monkeys"!

How about keep your mouth shut and just play the game. Show respect to the game. No one likes the person they are playing to say anything when they win a point.

No, saying stupid crap directly to an opponent is BUSH league. Sending a message to such an opponent is a bit like hitting an opposing batter after the other team's pitcher has plunked one of yours.

Do I make a habit of targeting people? Nope, but if an opponent told me to "Bring it on, baby," I'd shrug my shoulders and indulge him in his wish.

Personally I like Mekka Lekka Hi-Mekka Hiney Ho

makes everyone smile :twisted:

Mekka-lekka-hi, Mekka-hiney-ho
This magic phrase was popularized by the children’s television series Pee-Wee’s Playhouse (1986): “One of Pee-wee’s visiting pals to pop into the Playhouse was in the form of a genie—a disembodied, turban-topped talking head named Jambi. Always a jokester, Jambi swiveled his head and worked his magic much to Pee-wee’s rapture; he granted wishes if Pee-wee chanted along with him (‘mecca-lecka-hi, mecca-hiney-ho’)” (Stephen Cox, Dreaming of Jeannie, 2000).

A friend of mine likes saying: "That's my game.", on opponent's UE. Especially when playing his sporty competittive daughter. Sound's very finny to spectators and a bit enerving to opponents.

Gonzalito17 08-08-2013 03:48 AM

"Whoot there it is"

"Who Let the dogs out?"

Thanks everyone these are great :)
