I was very surprised to hear Kim grunting several times during the final. I never heard that of Kim before. Maybe she was influenced be extreme-grunter Sveta?

She does grunt. Just sometimes she grunts more one day than another

If you dont like the engine in formula one dont watch it. Same goes with tennis! If you dont like grunting dont watch it!

She does grunt slightly. Sometimes you can hear it better than other times.

I didn't write that I don't like it, I just was surprised about Kim.

It's not grunting. You can't expect that she'll stay completely still while reaching very difficult balls. She does it very quietly and it's not annoying like for example Sharapova's grunts.

They (Kim+Justine) teamed up in Fed Cup to beat the Russain duo, now even their fans are teaming up to defeat a Russain players fan! :lol: :wavey:

But I refuse to be beaten!

some players I have never heard grunting AT ALL..For instance Steffi,Mirza,Ivanovic..Never heard a grunt...But yeah apparantly for most players it starts when you become nervous and the breathing becomes irregular because of that..Hence you start grunting..As a result of the unusual breathing..This is true for most of players grunting except Sharapova and LenaD I think..Both of them are just used to grunting :lol:

Well apparantly it mixes with the sound of ball being hit and it can off your timing ..As that sound of ball actually being hit by racket is essential in many players timing and movement.. So if someone is grunting as loud as sharapova of course it will bother her...Even slightest thing can turn off your timing in a close match..And this is I think quite a serious thing for a player..

She grunts when intense tennis is on, it keeps her head focused. But I don't think it's that of a loud grunt.

That was in theory only true to the players of old who only find ways to excuse there losses (and annoyance) to more able much agile younger players...

if you ask the crop of players now, they are so used to grunting that they have outgrown it much less bother them...

I have heard petrova commented about that and, yes it doesn't bother her at all!
