I tried to watch some of the womens matches and I was dumbfounded how impossible it is to watch.. the grunts on every single stroke make it almost unbearable to watch..
I can't imagine sitting in the stands and enduring this.
Aint nothing new about the world order..it's been playing since the day they put George Washington on a quarterDelivering Truth while the 10% deliver lies.
Then you would absolutely not want to play Wii Tennis with my wife and me when we try to out-Williams each other.
Gravey, I'm never sure, on a scale of 1-10, just how serious you are when you post. – Minarchist
I still think it is funny at times when players grunt. However I understand why they would do it, and I also have been enjoying the Australian open quite a bit.
Also, the fitness levels of tennis players is freaking insane. Top level tennis players are easily some of the best athletes around.
Buy! Buy so you can be an ostrich who kills dinosaurs by kicking them in the face!
So after I told Mrs. Gravey about this thread yesterday, she said that apparently the grunting is a Thing:
Australian Open women's final promises to be a scream

Hell, it's going on right now! 6-3, 3-0? Louder, Sharapova, louder!
Congrats, Azarenka! Now come on, Djokovic!
Awww. I didn't get to see the match yet Gravey.
You get used to the grunting after a while. It is funny on occasion, but it's pretty common. I remember hearing others on our team grunt a lot when they'd get in a really long rally.
