OK so I make a fairly loud sound when I hit the ball aggressively, but it's a consistent sound. I especially do it when chasing down lobs, which isn't my favorite thing to do. In today's league match, my partner and I were ahead 6-0, 5-2 and I was serving at 40-love. One of our opponents just loves to lob, in fact that is the only shot she brings. So she hits one more moonball, and I run it down. It was about a foot inside the line. I had to stretch a bit to return it, but I hit a beauty - a high, spinny ball that sailed 'way over the net person's head, and landed in the corner behind her. As I hit it, I grunted loudly because of the exertion. The other player tried to run it down, but couldn't get there. Match over, right? But when we went to shake their hands, they both complained that they thought I had called their shot out (they mistook the sound I made for an "out" call, they said), so "we stopped playing". They wanted to replay the point. We refused. Our position: 1) I didn't yell "out". I screamed "AAAAAAAHHH!", which I had been doing for the previous 13 games. When I call a ball out, I say "OUT!" Clearly, and point with my finger. 2) I didn't stop playing the ball, I hit a shot, then returned to ready position - it was their problem if they chose to give up on the point. 3) My shot was a winner in any case. The baseline player did try to run it down, but she couldn't touch it. The net player had no chance at getting the ball, it was so high over her head - even if she jumped for it like Shaq O'Neill. What do you think? I felt bad that they went away thinking we aren't good sports, but we didn't think their "we stopped playing" argument held water, and we didn't think they were entitled to play the point over.
