Do you grunt?

I do sometimes, but it's not a very loud one. It's kinda like Guga's orgasmic grunt though, pretty drawn out.

:lol: no.

Though I do let out a few Lleyton style "c'mooooons" if I hit a good shot on a big point :p

No, although like to scream if I miss an easy shot- when I hit a super shot I shout 'YESSSS' in an idiotic fashion.

Depends on my partner.

Players should always try to improve their strokes and they must have strategy in order to minimize the vulnerability of their weakness.

For example

1)Run around forehand if you have bad backhand.
2)Don't approach net unless you are forced or have opponents returns a weak shot
3)Play with a lot of topspin which guarentees your ball will land safely, because it's probably the flat shots that land in the net or way over the baseline.

Oh sorry, I posted in the wrong thread. Anyway, I don't grunt, but sometimes burst with expressions, which everyone does, it's natural.

Umm, not really, but if I really go for a shot I'll let out a little noise. It isn't like a long, drawn out grunt tho.

Only when I'm joking around or I want to pissoff my opponent :D

No; but at the climax of an intense point rally I may yell out like I am about to behead a person in some ancient battle

I grunt like a pig on most points. I reckon it annoys everyone near me. So i keep doing it.

Not as much swinelike more boar-esque. I don't realise Im doing, not til I notice the RSPCA outside the court loading darts into their rifles. Animals.

I am ususally very quiet and focused when I play. Some players that you see on tv just take their grunting too far, it is really quite off-putting to watch.
