Seems like a long time since I was watching Wimbledon last. I'm enjoying it a lot more this time ;-)

It's proving a serious threat to my planning for a week at work, the return to which is smoothly accelerating to absorb my recovery growing energy.

Mostly I'm tempted to research what kind of comedy sound effect Victoria Azarenka sounds like. I've heard athletes grunt before and even vocalise the expellation at the moment of contact, which I believe they liken to the kiai of a karateka breaking boards. This is clearly something else, vocalising the controlled outbreath after the contact as the opponent addresses the ball. It would put me off, for sure (notwithstanding that she could beat me one-handed, blindfold and wearing army boots anyway. Or, to judge from her FHM shoot, high heels, now that would be distracting...).

It's definitely not the low roar of a Howler Monkey, but does smack of the rainforest. It's more like a speeded up version of the spooky high pitched warble Bruce Lee's character makes in Enter the Dragon, that seems to release the tension as he grinds his heel into something crunchy in a supine opponent. YouTube is the Thief of Time...

Got it: The crustacean Dr. Zoidburg's call of alarm from Futurama, just up an octave.
