Tennis legend Navratilova calls grunters cheats

TENNIS legend Martina Navratilova has called grunting players cheats and called for something to be done about the noise on court.

The winner of 18 grand slam titles used the presentation of an award for her service to the game to air her grievances to the tennis world's leaders, The Times Online reported.

"Roger Federer doesn't make a noise when he hits the ball - go and listen," Navratilova said. "The grunting has reached an unacceptable level. It is cheating, pure and simple. It is time for something to be done."

The two-time French Open champion did not name any offenders. But the Times Online noted the assault on eardrums at Roland Garros this year was being led by Michelle Larcher De Brito, Victoria Azarenka, Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova.

Navratilova said: "I remember how it was when Monica (Seles) and I were competitors and she began to grunt.

"I couldn't hear the ball. I thought to myself, 'Do I mention it to the umpire, do I say something to her? What should I do?' And Monica was a friend. I had to say something in the end."

The grunting dispute with Seles began in 1992, with Navratilova complaining there was more to it than merely irritating the opposition.

The sound made by the strings of a racquet striking the ball gives the skilled player an important clue about the speed and spin of the ball they are about to face. Drowning this sound out with a loud grunt denies that information to your adversary.

"A player is in a difficult position because if they make too much of a fuss, the crowd can turn against them," she said. "It is the umpires who have to act because if they start enforcing the hindrance rule and give point penalties, it will soon stop. The grunts are louder and lasting well into the opponent's strike zone."

Navratilova said that no one in tennis authority had spoken to her after her speech at the International Tennis Federation presentation of the Philippe Chatrier Award

The grand slam committee is scheduled to meet in Paris today and players' noise levels are believed to be on their agenda, The Times Online reported.

Ala ovo zvuci: players' noise levels na dnevnom redu sastanka. :lol:
Ali sigurno ima smisla to sto ona govori. Osim ovog zvuka koji proizvodi udarac reketa o lopticu, to vristanje i uzdisanje samo po sebi moze da dekoncentrise. Pricamo o tenisu, ne o........, tako? :lol:

O Ovome su preksinoc pricali i Mats i Mekenro. Ovaj potonji, poznat po svadjama s raznim ucesnicima meca  :lol: , deli misljenje Navratilove i kaze da moraju da pocnu da ih kaznjavaju.
Ocekujem da ce uskoro i publika krenuti da vristi, a iskreno, da sam nesto nasuprot Sarapove, Sirene Vilijams ili Del Brito, trudila bih se da ih pogodim direktno u usta  >:(
