Lorraine McCune has studied the grunt since 1987. She told Time that the grunt is “a physiological response to exertion, an epiphenomenon occurring when the body needs more oxygen.” She explained there could be consequences to suppressing the sounds, referencing the game consequences an athlete may face if they try to suppress the noise while hitting a ball in tennis.

“When you squash the grunt,” she said, “you’re having to use energy that you could have used for your stroke to suppress a vocalization.”
