Grunt-fest Horror Movie!

i am watching a Eurosport replay of the 2018 women’s semifinal match between Halep and Muguruza.

Both players are grunt-squealing on each and every groundstroke.

My wife (who seldom watches tennis with me) states, “it sounds like a horror move. It’s like they are stabbing each other over and over again.”

She asks me to mute the television while saying “it certainly isn’t very pleasant to watch; it makes me feel the same fear and anxiety I have when watching a horror film.”

I mute it.

I was watching Theim vs Cecchinato live ( from 2nd set Tie breaker) with my 2 friends who rarely watch any tennis. They liked how Theim was ruthlessly ripping the ball but none of them was liking the grunts.

One commented - " These guys grunt like they are getting constant orgasm while playing any shot "....that comment made my day:D:D

About WTA , nothing from me..will not even encourage anyone to watch WTA :oops:. I can feel for your wife:(.

I watched Sharapova-Muguruza highlights and the grunting there was unacceptable.I can understand some small scale grunting to happen once in a while in the match but this was too much

See it for yourself

Yup, watched Mug and Shara the other day. Each ones gruntsqueal lasted almost until the other hit their shot.

The result was an almost constant cacophany of gruntsquealing that sounded a lot like a movie i never watched once, with a bunch of consenting adults doing things i didnt see at all.

Yep! Exactly.

Repetitive stabbing.

An excellent summary. Well put.

(No thanks. Not the kind of movie I want to see.)

I tried to watch the highlights.

I just couldn't continue past minute 1.

For me watching on mute is not an option, because it is like watching a silent movie.

I like watching silent movies, but not these.

Truly sorry for the people, who paid to witness that.

:cool:
