What do you shout after a a point winning smash?
Well just interested. I normally just say "come on!" to myself.
Also is it bad etiquette to shout out loud?
So go on guys, what do you shout after a great smash?

I am known to shout especially in tournaments, just depends if I'm "in the zone" then be sure I will shout and I don't care what people think.
I doubt that it's bad etiquette, I remember I played a tournament once, and in doubles we took the first game like 21-16, then in the 2nd, our opponents asked me to stop yelling, and after this, we started to lose. Lost that game 12-21, then I decided that I was going to start again, cause I felt that it was helping me psychologically in the game, we won the decided 21-13 I think. One of the other guys weren't happy, but I don't mind. Nothing wrong with what I was doing.

If it was after a long difficult rally, for sure I'll shout "YEAH!!!".

I always find the pro's do this a lot after their opponent has made an unforced error, this in my opnion is bad etiquette purely done to get in your opponents head. Also the staring at their opponent whilst shouting is just wierd something i see a lot of these days in tournaments again just to get in opponents head. But this sort of gamesmanship seems to be accepted now even though there are uproars when a player celebrates instead of immidiately shaking someones hand at end of match, very strange.
oh i don't shout btw

I also shout 'Ajay' in a dejected tone when I make a silly error. Concentration is a big thing with me. I use this talking to myself to keep my concentration level and motivate me to carry on putting in 100%. Quite often I can talk myself to winning the game when I have been down in points (if that makes sense). No one has questioned my shouting, because people that know me know that I am a passionate player and it comes out naturally.
I did however once have an opponent who got upset when I shouted on the winning point of a match, obviously after I knew he couldn't get it back. He claimed my shouting had put him off. Even the onlookers said the rally was over before I shouted. He even refused to shake my hand. Ah well, some people are bad losers.
