Monica Selles was a real pain in the neck about this.

The grunting/screaming/greaming is the reason I stopped watching women's tennis.

Me too.  Wonder how their over all viewership is doing.

They lose enough, they'll find a way to stop it.

That's a bullshiat justification. The real reason is the same as why people watching hate the grunting in women's tennis: It's distracting, making your brain unconsciously muti-task information, thus bringing your opponent's level down.

\It's gamesmanship, bordering on cheating
\\but mainly, I hate it as a spectator
