Subject: RE: BS: Musing On Wimbledon
I think it stems, Ebbie, from coaches telling youngsters to exhale as they strike the ball - but, in my opinion, this may be okay for golf e.g., but not rallying tennis where players should catch their breath whenever they can; the exception, of course, is serving, where folks have time to perform what is an awkward motion that would make Marcel Marceau grunt, at least a bit! I guess a spare sock could be put to use..? ;-)>
