GNAH!

“If one player is grunting too much and the other player doesn’t like it and it is distracting, they can complain to the umpire. … I think there is an education problem with younger players. And certainly my postbag, if you say ‘what do you get most letters about’, I would say that grunting is high up. So we are aware, whether you are watching it on TV or here, people don’t particularly like it.”
—Ian Ritchie, the “head of Wimbledon,” addresses tennis grunting, although can Victoria Azarenka’s ghost-wails even be called grunts? (YouTube grunts, too.)
