Women’s Tennis To Crack Down On Loud Grunting

Billie Jean King, who famously beat Bobby Riggs in a televised match during the 1970s, was perhaps women’s tennis’ first “grunter”.

The Women’s Tennis Association has announced it will issue handheld “grunt meters” to umpires to measure the loudness of player grunting on the court. Farting will still be allowed, to the dismay of spectators.
