Recently, there has been controversy over the way some of the female tennis players play tennis in the tournament.

A number of them grunt as they hit the ball and this distracts their opponents.

One player grunted so loud that the crowd watching the game told her to stop!

Other players even shriek as they hit the ball and it distracts the other players so much that some people have said that it might actually be cheating.

Tennis commentator Tracey Austin told the BBC that there is nothing wrong with grunting unless you start to do it on purpose to distract your opponent.

If you do, then there is the hindrance rule, which could be use to disqualify people who use grunting to distract their opponent.

What do you think of the grunting noises that some tennis players make? Do you think it is cheating? Write to us in English!
