Female tennis players always make a lot of noise when they hit the ball. A high-pitched, throaty squeal that sounds like they sat on a basketball player. It makes tennis unwatchable (who am I kidding? There are a lot of reasons female tennis is unwatchable). But a man to screaming like a woman being sodomized by a fire hose is worthy of being mocked, and that’s exactly what tennis player Robin Haase did when his opponent wouldn’t shut up.
After tolerating his loud opponent for the entire match, Haase eventually got fed up, and imitated one of his opponent’s spastic grunts. Apparently, that’s grounds for what they call a “hindrance,” and Haase was docked a point. You can see him yelling at the ref (or whatever they call ’em in tennis), something along the lines of, “He did it all match — and I do it ONE TIME!?”
That’s bullshit Haase got docked for that. Tennis penalties are even softer than soccer penalties, apparently. These are grown men. If they can’t handle a little chatter, they don’t deserve to be on the court. Plain and simple. And what if he wasn’t even taunting? Maybe he just wanted to put some extra mustard on that stroke. Maybe he popped a hemorrhoid on the extension. I dunno, but you can’t knock a man for that. Shameful..
