Corporate sponsored athletes will be payed an additional fee if during the match they grunt the name of the sponsor during particularly hard shots.

Opponents will try then to out-grunt each other to make their sponsor's grunt louder and more audible in the rally of shots.

       Great for single sylable companies, a slight problem for companies like Adidas.   

       A... D.... Das, I suppose it works fine with a bit of post match editing.

       Funk and Wagnell's sponsorship of Henman?   

       "Code Violation, Mr Henman."   

       "For saying Funk and Wagnell's?"   

       "Second Code Violation, Mr Henman."   

       "I said Funk.."   

       "That's it, Match Forfeited. Thank you linesmen, thank you ballboys, thank you Microsoft Encarta."

       This might work well for porno flicks also: ”Yes, do it Haggar and Pfizer”, ”I’m Comcast, I’m Comcast now! Oh my Goldman Saaachs!”

       How about throwing some concentric circles in the serving rectangle, skeeball style?   

       Mr. Federer just served 120 miles an hour into the Chunky Soup circle -- and you need Campbell's Chunky Soup to hit a serve that hard.

       Jimmy Connors could have made good money out of this.

       Seems a little silly that they record audio at all for tennis games. This would make it more silly. +

       Instead of advertising (which is the only reason Mr. Grump here has not proffered a croissant), could they play consequences? When playing each shot they would have to grunt a word connected with the word grunted at the last shot, without repetition or hesitation.
