Nine-year-old Australian, Lauryn Edwards, has been banned from playing tennis by her local club because she grunts too loudly.
Lauryn will be permitted to play only if her father can guarantee she won’t grunt on court.
Mr Edwards said: “How can I guarantee that? She’s been doing it since she was really little. She’s her own person. What do they want me to do? Put Band-Aids over her mouth? They made her cry on the court when they told her. She was in such a state I had to bring her home mid-match.”
Maria Sharapova, Lauryn’s favorite tennis player, and Monica Seles must be so proud. (source: Adelaide Now)
