The Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) is testing new technology that may be used at the Western and Southern Open next year. It's an iPad loaded with real-time data (from the chair umpire and Hawk-Eye) that coaches may take with them during on-court coaching sessions.

While the technology may seem basic to some, tennis is traditional and slow to change. The men's circuit doesn't allow on-court visits by coaches, so it is not part of this technology roll-out.
