Can you guess players by their grunt?

Rafa & Ferrer were easy.

With ladies, it could be easier, at least "LOUUUUUDER"... Guaranteed(y).

There were a few that were tricky like Ferrer, Rublev, and Thiem, especially Thiem. Sascha is a genius.

I got them all, but I can understand why it is difficult for the actual players to guess. They only focus on their own games, and they practice too much to be able to watch any tennis, so they probably don't have a clue what anyone else's grunt sounds like.

Yeah unlike us who watches the matches and gets to know the players. I'm sure Zverev did well and Roger would do well because they also enjoy watching matches.

OK, I'm a freak and got them all :-D. I'm not sure how I would do with ladies thought as I don't watch too many WTA matches any more.

Now, for younger people here. Seles was trained to 'grunt' and release her 'energy'. Then everyone else on the WTA tour followed. Serena usually doesn't do it either nowadays unless she is playing against another lady who grunts. I noticed that too. Serena would hit a winner and screams like 'AAAAAAH'

Fed used to grunt when he was younger. Djokovic too, but he does it when a game is really important or too long. If you do pay attention and just listen Fed does not grunt any more. Novak, here and there, he stopped it too. Rafa is Rafa and I don't mind it. It is his signature :).

I feel like grunting or screaming right now. Who is with me :laughing:?

Chair umpire should give prior health warning and issue hearing protecting to the court side audience when Azarenka, Sharapova, Halep and Sabalenka comes onto the court
