Re: who here grunts when they hit volleys?

On volleys, I only grunt if the ball comes at me fast or if need to stretch. On swing volleys I always grunt.

But in general I've become shy when grunting

Re: who here grunts when they hit volleys?

I never grunt. Me and my friend decided to try to grunt before whilst playing but we kept missing the ball because we were concentrating so much on the grunt.

Re: who here grunts when they hit volleys?

sorry but you must have down syndrome if u grunt when you volley or if u grunt at all really, unless you're on a full stretch, you should learn to control your breathing so as to not seem so retarded

Have some basic respect, geez.

And yes I meant full stretch, the stretch where you will fall on the ground with.

I only do swing volleys and I do grunt on those.

I hardly ever volley, but I think I don't. I actually just grunt when I'm tired mostly.

Re: who here grunts when they hit volleys?

I grunt on every shot...usually an Ivanovic noise...though I had a Seles phase when I was playing for school with a groin pull the whole three month season. I still got to districts serving at 60% and hobbling around...

Re: who here grunts when they hit volleys?

I sometimes let out an orgasmic, loud noise on drop shots or drop volleys to confuse the opponent.

Re: who here grunts when they hit volleys?

Noises shouldn't skew a game, but a sound equivalent to a jet taking off at the other end of the court masks the thwack of the ball hitting the racket, making it harder to judge the shot. Even if bellowing verges on gamesmanship, it's not easy to get heavy with the heavy-hitters who have fallen into bad and noisy habits. "What else would you ban?" asks my long-suffering tennis coach, Austine Okajie. "Should Sharapova not be allowed to turn her back on her opponent before receiving shots? If you want to change things, start with the young ones."
