Is grunting in tennis bad for the vocal chords?

I don't know if grunting is really the word, I am no Sharapova. When stretching for a shot, I make a strained noise.  It's a kind of guttereal, forced air sound. This makes my voice feel coarse, raspy and dry.
 
Having read and contributed to threads on weightlifting damaging the voice, I am worried this is the same thing.
