Wozniacki calls for making annoying grunting on court history

   Oct 26, 11:37 am

Istanbul, Oct 26(ANI): Danish tennis star Caroline Wozniacki has risked the wrath of her fellow players by effectively accusing some of them of grunting too loudly on purpose.

Maria Sharapova of Russia and Victoria Azarenka of Belarus have clocked up wails of around 100 decibels.

Speaking at the season-ending WTA Championships in Istanbul, Wozniacki said: "There are some players who do it on purpose. They don't do it in practice and then they come into the match and they grunt. They could definitely cut it."If you grunt really loudly, your opponent cannot hear how you hit it. You think the ball is coming fast and suddenly it comes slowly," she added.

The 21-year-old further made it clear that the serial offenders had an unfair advantage over the rest.

"If you grunt really loudly your opponent cannot hear how you hit the ball," the Sun quoted Wozniacki, as saying.

"Because the grunt is so loud, you think the ball is coming fast and suddenly the ball just goes slowly. In tight moments, maybe the grunt helps them with getting less nervous," she added. (ANI)
