Question: Grunting players are spoiling the tennis game?
Exclusive:Female tennis players who grunt too loudly are putting off their opponents and spoiling the game for the millions of spectators, the head of Wimbledon says. Former Wimbledon ace, Boris Becker, thinks that women tennis players should be banned from grunting. It can’t be healthy, he says, and it’s unbecoming. Boris Becker who doesn't have a reputation for prudishness but he complained that the way women tennis stars grunt during matches is too sexual. Not something one would expect such a notorious ladies man to grumble about, but presumably, he feels that everything has its time and place. Center court is for playing tennis, and if anyone wants to grunt, they should go elsewhere, such as a broom closet.
"I'm amazed whenever I watch Serena Williams and Maria Scharapova," he carped, referring to the Russian star who's been called as noisy as a light aircraft. "I can't help thinking it's bad for their vocal chords. It can't be healthy and it can't go on.Grunting serves no athletic purpose and should be banned," said the three-time Wimbledon champ." insisted Becker.
"I seriously had to turn the sound down last night as it sounded like a porno flick when i went to the toilet and heard it from another room" say a makcik in Putrajaya(?)
