At your level and experience you should not have to take time out because of hyper ventilating. A full z10 minutes - that is ridicules.

Your loud grunts are ridiculously unprofessional. Your 10 min break at climax of match was totally unprofessional also. No wonder the Oz open crowd jeer you. Gamesmanship at expense of your opponent means you are a 'cheat'.

YOUR GRUNTING IS SO UNPROFESSIONAL you don't deserve to win & how off-putting for your opponent. Your screaming is an assault to my ears.

Please stop the noise you make when you are playing.
I love tennis and follow all 4 grand slams. I am not watching
tennis when you play because of the noise. Is that how you want to be remembered? Or your ability as a great tennis player. The tennis association shouldn't have to
forbid the noise. You should just stop. If we as fans have to be quiet while you play, you should be quiet while you are playing.
