What's with the grunt?

We've been regularly watching the coverage of the 2009 US Open over the past few days. Not only has it encouraged us to get out and play more, but we've been reacquainted with the tennis stars of today's world.

I've loved immersing myself in all of the matches, but I do have one bone to pick. What is UP with all of the grunting? For some reason, it doesn't bother me as much when the women do it.

Tonight I just couldn't handle it. We were watching the Nadal-Monfils match and I discovered that Nadal is a grunter. What I don't get though is that he is the most inconsistent grunter EVER. I mean, if you're going to grunt then do it. Do it with every shot. I can handle that as it almost becomes as part of the match as the sound of the ball hitting the racquet. But, please don't be a random grunter. It would make my viewing experience much more enjoyable.
