Women tennis players could be forced to curb their grunting with plans for new rules and "grunt-ometers" on court.
Bosses in the tennis world are supporting plans to drive excessive grunting out of the game, which could see umpires at grand slams such as Wimbledon use handheld devices to assess how loud shrieks are.
The plans, agreed by the International Tennis Federation (ITF), the Women's Tennis Association (WTA) and representatives from the four grand slams, are not likely to be introduced in the immediate future, but will be a long-term effort to encourage players to curb their noise.
