Only after mindless unforced errors or when I realise that I made a stupid shot :o

During the rallies only after 2 hours of play! :lol:

Not really a scream, its a high pitched wail and it continues after the shot.

That's basically what Sharapova does. Why do you feel the need to wail? Does it hurt when you hit the tennis ball or something? It's ridiculous IMO. You don't hear boxers, even female ones squeal when they throw a punch and there's more force put into that along with more physical pain.

Its like in martial arts when you are told to shout/scream when you do an attack. Its not something you do naturally, but the theory is that you will release more energy if you do it. I would not argue with sporting theory developed over centuries of experience.

I wouldnt be able to face anyone in the club if I grunted. Its such an embarassing thing.

I used to grunt actually when I was too much into the game and we were playing already some hours:lol: I simply couldnīt play after 2-3 hours without grunting, and as childs we were playing a lot of tennis during holidays:lol: You are getting much more exhausted without some "good breathing" and Iīm sure most of you would be grunting too in a 3 setter in +30 even when you wouldnīt play a profi match:p As I was getting older and "stronger" then I stopped, but while serving Iīm still...not grunting...itīs something like blowing...also in 3rd set when Iīm too exhausted...and I donīt play a lot nowadays (actually I even donīt remember when I played last match...sweet childhood :awww:) so Iīm getting exhausted too early.

No, I would feel pathetic if I did.

This got moved to Tennis Equipment Forum. Do they need more visitors in here?

Only if my opponent did. Then I would copy them, with a Schiavone/Bovina-like delay. Especially after drop volleys.
