Andy Murray and Carlos Berlocq get into a spat during their fourth-round match at Indian Wells, which Murray won. Berlocq complained to the chair umpire that Murray was taking too much time in between points, then Murray complained about the Argentine’s grunting.

“When you’re doing it that loud, but you aren’t doing that on every single shot, there is obviously a reason for why you’re grunting like that some consistency with a grunt,” Murray said. “If I’m going to be supposedly taking too long between points on one or two points, then grunting that loud for that long is like an extended grunt as well. It’s still making a noise when you’re hitting the ball. It’s annoying.”
