amplified cries

This is lovely, from an article in todays Guardian about the effects the retractable roof has on the tennis at Wimbledon. It amplifies noise, amongst other things. Barnay Ronay writes:

"Even the impact of ball on strings sounds like an octopus whirled about by it's tendrils and violently whapped against a rock."

Brilliant. But I can't help but wonder what the Guardian would make of it's employees spending their lunch hours whapping assorted animals against a rock purely to see what sound they produce.
