Grunting should be prohibited.

some players' grunting is quite annoying n distracting their opponents. so I declare my opposition to grunting.

Thank you, Miss Tauziat, your concern is noted.

You have to answer for Santino, Carlo.

you can't prohibit grunting. I know from experiance that some players have to grunt on order to play. I had to start grunting when I hit the ball, because I didn't breathe during points, and my coach pointed it out to me. So, I like thr grunting...I think it's entertaining.

How many "decimals" would it have to reach before it was banned Gogo ? Would the British tabs bring back the Grunt-o-Meter?

Perhaps as punishment the offenders could meet Jennifer in a dark alley. Or be subjected to a video of "Monica's Greatest Grunts".

Poor Rollo wouldn't last a game. Heck, I even grunt on drop shots.
In fact, I even grunt louder on drop shots cause it fools my opponent into thinking a hard shot is coming

Hi ya Viva

How's Portugal these days? It's like an ice-box here in the eastern US. Just watching the Aussie warms me up!

I'm a Capriati fan (really!) but it was too good to let it pass.

That would be cool, cause that's serena's weapon to imtimidate her opponents. just watch her videos and you will see that when she's winning she doesn't grunt that much but when she's losing she grunts louder then seles. Only seles should be able to grunt, cuz she started it.

Grunting is just a natural part of the game. I think for most of the pro players it is easily ignored.

Amélie Mauresmo, 2009 GDF Suez, 2007 Proximus Diamond Games, 2006 World No. 1 ,Wimbledon Champion, Proximus Diamond Games, Gaz, Australian Open, 2005 YEC, Advanta Chamionships, Italian Open, Proximus Diamond Games, 2004 World No. 1, Advanta Championships, Generali Linz, Rogers Cup, Italian Open, German Open, 2003 J&S Cup, Advanta Championships, 2002 Rogers AT&T Cup, Dubai Open, 2001 Gaz, Nice, Amelia Island, and Eurocard Ladies German Open, 2000 Adidas International, and 1999 Bratislava Champion

There's a fine line between love and hate; that line is called family!

No one does things exactly the way I want them to. No one ever has. It’s a problem they have!

AZARENKA!

Hopes it warms up your way Viva. All reports are Monica is quite fit this year-I know you'll be looking forward to the French with her and Guga to do well

BTW Iroda-Grunting has been around for a lot longer than Seles. I remember when Connors was #1 in the 70s people complained that his grunts sounded like a seal.
