image for Wimbledon to Outlaw Grunts for 2011
Under guard for grunting?

London - Wimbledon officials today dropped a bombshell on the tennis world, when they announced the complete elimination of grunting for 2011.

"We wanted to give players nearly a year to work on their play without grunting," said official on condition of anonymity,"If they grunt next year they will receive a warning for one grunt. Forfeit a game for two grunts and a set for 3. If they grunt a 4th time they shall be escorted off the court in handcuffs and taken to a tower at Buckingham Palace where they will remain for the remainder of the fortnight. If they grunt a 5th time in defiance Her Majesty is considering bringing back beheading."

"Personally I think this is a bit harsh," said Roger Federer, I mean my grunt is barely audible and i think I can control it, but I worry about the women, I mean I saw Maria (Sharapova) try to quit one time and she nearly dislocated a shoulder!"

Wimbledon officials could not be reached for an official comment to verify these changes,the Spoof will be following this story to bring you further development.
