I definitely think it's because she's ill. If it's a scratchy throat, grunting would just make it worse.

I don't buy into the whole "we must stop players from grunting" bull. I just don't see how it could be done. They tried it with Monica at Wimbledon years ago and it failed because she sucked in the final. Are some grunts more annoying to some, sure, but honestly I look at them as a gauge of effort by the player. The louder the grunt, the more intense the point or tense the player.
