The grunts and groans at a tennis match usually come from the court, not the apartment next door. Usually.
Frances Tiafoe and Mitchell Krueger were in the midst of a Sarasota Open match when the distinctive sounds — one might even call it a racket — of a couple enjoying themselves began floating out over the court.
