Tennis' Top 5 Grunters & Their Decibel Equivalents

We're nearing the end of Wimbledon 2015 and - alongside Nick Kyrgios' bizarre behaviour, Nadal's shock exit to the awesome Dustin Brown, Djokovic's cruise to the final and Heather Watson's near-miss against Serena - all the talk has been back on a familiar topic: grunting.

Maria Sharapova and Victoria Azarenka have both been criticised for the level of their on-court noisemaking and, while not everyone goes so far as to call it cheating, a lot of pundits and players alike are unhappy with the advantage that it could give those who employ it. More than anything, it's just INCREDIBLY annoying for the spectators.

And, just to show that there actually is some justification in moaning about this, here's the top five grunters of all-time, complete with a noisy equivalent. And - just in case, for some reason, you actually want to hear an example, check out the video below.
