The word is out that the WTA is going to make a real effort to reduce the amount, and decibel level, of “grunting, screeching, and other player noises during a point.
I, for one, am glad they are taking this action. It can be disrupting to the opposing player but most importantly the grunting is disgusting some spectators whether at the venue or home. We need to keep every spectator we can so this action will make it clear the WTA, and ATP for that matter, take excessive noise seriously.
It may take a while for this to become totally effective but it is a step in the right direction.
