WHAT IS THE CROWD CHANTING at Roland Garros ??

Someone please explain to me what is this word pockets of the crowd frequently says in unison in between points? Is it a real word or some nonsense, comical utterance?

LOL!

Is that "chant" annoying or what? I wouldn't be surprised if Serena lost from having to endure those yodeling sounds of "euuuwwleuhhhhh!!" for three sets.
