The WTA says it is working with Grand Slam tournaments and the International Tennis Federation to "drive excessive grunting" out of tennis.

In a statement, the women's professional tour says it is developing a "sport-wide plan" to keep future players from grunting by educating them and instituting rule changes.

Can they really enforce this?

With technology going the way it is, we guess there might be a way to track it. Actually enforcing it, with penalties, could be another story.
