hope lama dies
tennis federations should not let players shout like this. it is bad for the fans , bad for other players concentration. so annoying! and they ask the crowd to shut up... hard to understand...
hahahha legend

The refereeing in tennis is so much worse than in any other sport
Fair play to Haase, Lama needs as much mockery as possible, it's embarrassing
Ben DuBow
Guys, Guys he wasn't mocking the other player, he was going for a super saiyan backhand :)
it is totally ok , the decision of the ref. Haase is grunting just to irritate his opponent in this situation whereas his opponent does it because he does it all the time when he is putting much power into it
Now I have to know this Lama douche exists? Fuck him in the ass.

This is such a bullshit, an ass move by the ump. The guy in blue obviously grunted to distract his opponent, Robin was just making fun out of it... If Sharapova, Azarenka, and Nadal can grunt and shriek and scream like they do, then why can't a player make fun of it??

Those unnecessary grunts are annoying as hell it's so good to see someone mock it like Robin did
Ciprian Tanana
Bravo Robin!!!
Melanie Deann
You Sir are my hero! Nothing worse than annoying grunters.

What a douche that ref is

This is fucking retarded. The only valid reason they could use is that it somehow distracted him, but the other guy's obnoxious grunting was way more distracting. If it's going by distractions, than the mere fact that the other player's moaning irritated him enough to mock him, should say that his was distracting and he should have a point taken away from him too.

Grunting is not needed. Ever notice how they don't grunt when they actually need to exert themselves?

While some folks are quick to defend the players that grunt like this, there's a few things that show it's completely unnatural and they're just basically fucking with their opponent's concentration (which shouldn't be legal). One, at the very beginning of this video, is the serve. He gives a short grunt on the serve, and that is probably just legitimate effort. On the rest of the shots he draws it out, obviously on purpose, until just before his opponent is about to strike. Also, not in this video but if you watch matches these players will sometimes forget to omit it when they do a soft shot like a drop shot or just tapping the ball over the net when the opponent is out of position. Sometimes in the same match they'll remember not to do it on some of these shots because they know it doesn't appear natural, but sometimes they mess up and forget themselves because they're so used to doing it and they do it in instances where it's obviously not natural.

It's pretty obvious it's fake most of the time and just meant to distract the other player. That shouldn't be legal and it ruins the game in my opinion.

Robin Haase - this is classic! I say good on you!!
Jason Walker
Does it mean that you have to groan constantly to not be punished? Some new rules?
Dean Kuga
This umpire should not be allowed to work on the ATP tour ever again and everyone else allowing screamers and grunters to hinder their opponents should be re-trained.
I'm gonna make the same noises every time I'm at the park playing tennis out of remembrance of this guy. Fuck the ref.
This must be like playing tennis against Flame Hyenard. "BURN! BURN! BURN TO THE GROUND! BURN! BURN TO TH-BURN!"
David Parker
A lot of people don't get this, but the umpire is actually applying the rule correctly here. For something to be a hindrance it has to be a deliberate attempt (in the view of the umpire) to put the player's opponent off. What Haase did here is intentionally imitate Lama's grunting noise to mock him in the middle of a point. The fact that both players are doing the exact same thing is irrelevant, it's the intention behind it. Now you could argue, as many people who hate grunting do, that grunting on every shot is about distracting/intimidating your opponent, but no other umpire calls routine grunting in that way so it can hardly be expected for the umpire to make that call here. He basically made the only call he could do in this situation.

At first i thought this was a video game
Do something similar at live events. Shout when other people aren't shouting and do the wrong type of shouting like "bloody murder" screams.

Seriously, who can watch this with these annoying moans? It should be banned from tennis
Raja Hindustani
There's no need for the Lama to grunt at all, most tennis players will tell you grunting has been coached into a player to mask the sound of the connection or spin from the racquet to the ball. It's basically cheating , so maybe the he should be penalised instead
edz Conkarah
WOW THIS HAD ME IN TEARS LAUGHING. You could completely tell that yell was intentionally trying to take the piss haha but wtf that call was harsh as hell.
This umpire is a joke.
Did anyone notice, that this guy has a 4K monitor, but recorded this video in a resolution that's 4.5 times smaller?
That Lama fella was doing the same damn thing for every point, why the fuck does Haase get penalised for taking the piss of Lama's cheating?
Silly Skeleton
Sorry guy, but the rulebook clearly states: "Rule 752 - only one may grunt in a gentleman's match of tennis."

this is more common in womens tennis but much sexual
