Rules of Tennis - Rule No.26: Hindrance

If a player is hindered in playing the point by a deliberate act of the opponent(s), the player shall win the point.

-----------

They would need to determine that a player deliberately pumps up the volume of her grunts so that it hinders her opponent. In that case they could give point after point to her opponent until she quiets down again.

Re: Rules of Tennis - Rule No.26: Hindrance

Its clear players like Michelle and Ana missed out on this rule, if it exists. And supervisors aren't strict enough.

Ana's celebrations take place AFTER a point. Not during it. No hindrance.

Waiting for Ana Ivanovic to just retire already .

Re: Rules of Tennis - Rule No.26: Hindrance

I agree hindrance should be called on excessive screaming.
On the other hand, when MLDB said, "there is no rule against it, so I can't do anything about it", Rezai should have said out loud to the umpire: "Is there a rule against me asking me you to tell her that she is a pitiful little **** and I hope she dies before she wins a tournament? If not, I can't do anything about it, so please tell her that.

Re: Rules of Tennis - Rule No.26: Hindrance

i think the grunting thing has gotten out of hand. when seles came on the scene people were split on it but accepted it because seles only grunted on impact with the ball (not 5 seconds after like MLDB) and it was the same grunt everytime.

What exactly happened that even brings this up?

Re: Rules of Tennis - Rule No.26: Hindrance

Finally a great thread, instead of all those stupid scoring threads that have flooded GM.

This point has been made a loooooong time ago with the whole Seles/Graf Wimbledon final in reference to grunting. However, if this were the case Maria and the belovered rule "maker/breakers" aka Williams sisters along with MLDB would have lost points throughout their matches long ago.

Re: Rules of Tennis - Rule No.26: Hindrance

On the BBC website one of the commentators said they'd watched MLDB practice & there was no noise when she hit the ball, he seems to think she only does it during matches. Personally I hate it but I hate any of the grunts players make, no matter how ridiculously loud or not they are.

Re: Rules of Tennis - Rule No.26: Hindrance

Grunting is not the same to as shouting "come on" before the ball even bounces at the other side of the net. End of the bump.

Re: Rules of Tennis - Rule No.26: Hindrance

The problem here is that Asderaki suffered from "big moment stress", judging her first grand slam final. She gave away the game to Stosur in such a delicate moment and by doing so she was totally creating this unneeded controvercy that was bound to happen. Yes, Serena make hindrance with her shout, this was obvious. But Asderaki should AT MOST have called a let, and then called Serena to the chair and tell her "dont shout before the point is over".

Instead she is asking for this moment of deja vu by making such a strict intervention when not necessary.

Don't hate the player hate the game.
