Are "fist pumping" celebrations, battle roars still considered rude?

Just out read about the Agassi -vs- Mardy Fish from Siebel,
and I was wondering if the "Fist Pumping" and "battle roars"
are still considered rude?

Perhaps, I've been watching too many women's matches because
everybody does it and I haven't heard a reply ala Agassi's
"Come on You fu*king Asshole" from a WTA match?


(Well...not counting the Jenn, Myskina and Serena episodes).

It's not rude, unless you're winning 6-2 3-1 --or dominating a match. Then it's rude

I do it But not like in my opponents face I just kind of do a little fist pump and maybe a small "c'mon". But thats about it.

I don't, but if I start to lose I just start smacking the ball as hard as I can at people, and screaming my lungs out while I'm doing it....perhaps that's why no one wants to play with me.

Have people not complained about Sharapova's noises? Or does that not count, because they weren't playing on the same court as her?

People have complained about Lleyton Hewitt's "behavior" in the past as well... okay, so "people" is Alex Corretja.

I'm not sure if this is a huge issue, or if it's just one or two players opening their trap that have made it one.

I think it really depends on when you do it, and how you do it? For example... Hewitt sometimes fist pumps when his opponent double faults You have to draw the line somewhere. Granted, I've never actually heard a player complain about him, aside from Alex Corretja.

I pump my fist when I make a particularly difficult shot. it is not about the other player, it is about an achievement. It is not rude.

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.

they are if you do that every point. or when it's an error or df from the other player at like 15 all 2-2. otherwise, no. i like players with a bit of fire.

It can be rude. Let's take Sharapova as an example.

She has a certain fondness to do it ostentatiously. Perhaps to upset the other person in the court?

Not rude at all. It is competition.

Andre scarcastically shook his fist in an exagerated manner at Fish because he was upset about a fist pump from Fish.
