who here grunts when they hit volleys?

I found myself involuntarily do it loudly, but I am completely silent when I hit groundstrokes.

Re: who here grunts when they hit volleys?

I can't grunt during volleys. I try not to grunt at all... When I do it's completely involuntary. When I'm trying to really go after a serve I sometimes grunt, and I hate it! Since I'm not thinking about the grunt, and it just comes out, it always sounds really awkward and weird.

This.


But I am completely.. completely unable to grunt on a serve or a volley. Only strokes. No matter how hard I scream, nothing comes out on those.

Re: who here grunts when they hit volleys?

I try to grunt on ground strokes, I really do. But I can't and it seems awkward and unnatural. I only make a sound when I'm hitting the ball late. But on volley, short volleys, long volleys, or swinging volley is a big "AUUGHHH! URRGH!" I can't even stop it.

Re: who here grunts when they hit volleys?

Not on volleys
But I grunt weirdly on groundstrokes. It's not even a grunt actually. I keep the air in my mouth and i let it out just as i'm hitting the ball, the sound is something like "pshhhhh"
