I was a serious tennis player growing up and had I not been such a puss and quit at 13 I might actually be on the tour right now. Not sure how good I’d have been but still, it’s one of the biggest regrets that I have. A regret I don’t have however, is when I used to play annoying kids who would grunt.
I mean come on. A male? I know for a FACT that it’s not necessary to grunt. There’s just no way you need to. Same goes for lifting weights. This whole using your voice thing is a total sham. And in tennis, I’ve been there. I know. It’s total bull. The women that yell these days? It’s 100% a tactic to piss off the other player.
I will never buy it. You don’t need to scream and it won’t change your game whatsoever. The worst is when men do it. So I hope this new proposition goes through (not that I even watch tennis anymore but still)
And if you don’t think screaming needs to stop, check out these videos
