Grunt big for Daddy.

June 18th, 2005 · No Comments · Misc.

Wimbledon referee makes a noise over grunting.

“Many of the non-grunting players are unhappy about the noise pollution and a kind of counter-grunt culture has emerged in recent years whereby offended parties ape their opponent’s noises.”

One of the loudest of the modern grunters is defending women’s champion Maria Sharapova, who, according to the paper, makes a 100-decibel grunt, roughly the same volume as small aircraft landing nearby.

Tennis still sucks, but this aspect amuses the hell out of me.
