    Who knew you needed hearing protection to play tennis?

    Banning tennis court grunts
    Maria Sharapova’s screeches and grunts on the tennis court have been measured at 101 decibels, or roughly the loudness of a chain saw. The Women’s Tennis Association is now taking steps to ban the distracting practice—but only in the next generation of players.CSMonitor.com
