I despise it when someone shouts during play. Not grunt, mind you, I grunt quite often, but when they say something.

My brother likes to go "YES" or "COME ON" when he hits a good winner on an important point.

I can only describe it as 'bloody off-putting'. When someone shouts in joy when they hit a ball, it puts alarm bells off in your head. Since you're already trying to get the ball anyway it can only be a distraction. As is someone waving their arms like they're trying to take off when they're stadning over you at the net.

Anyone know what the rule is on that too?

So yeah, I think Blake should have been penalised, you can save your celebrations til the ball's bounced twice.
