just a little bit with my breathing... not loud at all. but ppl have still complained about it. :rolleyes: and ive noticed it only happens when you're kicking their ass. duh, lol.
the only grunting that i don't like is the grunting that players are starting to do more and more when they RUN... like they know you're going to hit a good shot and they start making these noises that want to make it like they're running the last quarter mile of the marathon.

Yep, I also grunt when I am playing. Helps me concentrate on every shot that I hit; making sure that I put just as much force into each shot.

Not very often. Only when I have to run up for a drop shot, and it's going to be close. But never for a regular forehand/backhand/serve. I find it distracts me :o

Sometimes...I don't even know I'm doing it though until someone who was watching tells me. Sometimes I'll try to do it like some of the players though. Haha.

I wish I could grunt a little bit more but usually when I grunt, I would think of Venus and try to kind of imitate her grunts :lol:

I grunt, especially when running for a shot, when the point is long, or the match is close...Much like Monica!

Only when I am in a very long rally and I'm running fast.. a bit like Ferrero!

I grunt like Guga...

:p

And sometimes like Dokic, but I always break my concentration because when the other person grunts and says AHHH (like a normal grunt) and I do a grunt like dokic (CHOO) it makes me think of sneezing :p

HELL YEAH,

My vioce is changing so my grunt is changing, but I did everything. I had a Serena grunt. It was so tight. All the guys in my tournaments were like what the hell, and I was like yeah, bring it bitch. LOL Anyways, I used to do Monica perfectly, never could do Venus. I grunt like a spanish clay courter now, but it's still cool.

GRUNTING ROCKS!

I make a "shhhh" sound after making contact on kick serves. It sounds kinda like Dokic :eek: As for my groundies, I'm pretty quiet on my backhand side, but the forehand side is a different story! You never know which kind of grunt is gonna pop out when I hit a forehand :eek: Sometimes it's like Agassi...sometimes like Chanda....sometimes like Daniilidou :eek:....it's really scary :help:

it helps me hit more 'solidly' and steadier.
it's a bit Ferrero/Kafelnikov/ASV/Dementieva-ish :o :o :o
