That's PMK is Innocent. He's just a mod. I'm talking about bad gambler.

Hey blackgirl! I never called you on this, but a while back I saw you drop the F-bomb over there when some A-hole gave you a bad time about your thread. Dizamn! You've got a fiery temper.   :rofl_2:

I guess I should have said something at the time...   :)

Well, some of those a@@holes deserve it. ;-() You have to be able to defend yourself over there because most of the time, no one will do it for you.

Well, hearing Ancic moan and groan is like music to my ears because that means he is healthy and playing and he is over, what he calls, "the mono". :)~

BGT, we all know that that is not the reason why it's "music to your ears". ;)

I like the grunting. I think it makes a match more exciting. You know what i don't understand are people who don't like the grunting but they know that a Serena,Sharapova and Venus match is going to be on tv, yet still they watch the match and complain about the grunting. I mean, that's like you know the pot is hot and if you touch it your going to get burned, yet still when you touch it and get burned, you complain.
I love Serena. Venus, Davenport,Seles

Ah yes, the grunting debate.  Grunting/shrieking personally doesn't bother me (I know it does bother a lot of folks though.)  But it is surprising that the rule is not follwed more closely.
 
Friend at Court states  - "A player should avoid grunting and making other loud noises. Grunting and other loud noises may bother not only opponents but also players on adjacent courts. In an extreme case, an opponent or a player on an adjacent court may seek the assistance of the Referee or a Roving Umpire. The Referee or official may treat grunting and the making of loud noises as a hindrance. Depending upon the circumstance, this could result in a let or loss of point."

Jamesdster and I play at the same club  :)

As do OSU, Freebird and Jeffro.  Although Jeffro has been absent from the forums for quite some time!

Dmastous, Bab and Euroka1 have all been down here for the T4U get together in Columbus, we go to Cinncy for the Masters tourney the next day.  We spent 4 hours on the court this year and then went to Freebird's for the party.  We were all fried after 4 hours of tennis, but it was fun!  Of course anyone who can get here is invited!  This was the second year we did it.
Good Luck on the Court!!!

I can understand that, I think to play left hand and to serve is HARDDDD !!!!
When i'm practicing, i try to do everything, I have a 2H backhand,2H forehand, 1H backhand, 1H forehand, I can use my left hand and hit forehand and backhands, but when I try to serve, I look plain stupid  :rofl_2:

And I only grunt when I'm getting tired... I like the grutinting, it pumps me up
I love Serena. Venus, Davenport,Seles

Guilty as charged.  When I try to go for a little bit extra I do grunt kinda loud.
