Loud grunting in tennis
I've just seen a clip from the French open where an umpire cautioned a player for excessive noise. I've noticed this "animal grunting" becoming more annoying of late. Is it really necessary, and would it be reasonable to actively discourage it, as it must be quite distracting for the other player? I often find it so annoying I turn the sound off, but then I'm missing an important part of the broadcast.

Jason.P Find the commentary most interesting especially when John MacEnroe is commentating yet most of the commentators analysis& background information is quite enjoyable- enhances the whole tennis experience for sure. Enjoy the rest of the French Open & all the tennis this summer Jason P. Good topic. Cheers, Simon
