Grunting tennis star won't be silenced

200x190.jpg16-year-old tennis star Michelle Larcher De Brito says officials will not stop her loud grunts.

The Portuguese teenager has been recorded making 110 dB screeches as she hits the ball in some matches - that's not far off the noise of a chain saw.

During the French Open her moans got so loud that an opponent even complained to the umpire that it was becoming unbearable.

But speaking at a Wimbledon press conference yesterday, Michelle said she would not stop making the noise because it was part of her game.

"Nobody can tell me to stop grunting, tennis is an individual sport and I'm an individual player." she said. That means she will continue screaming, even when the umpire says "Quiet please".
