Players will have an additional five seconds between points at next year's Australian Open but time wasters will have nowhere to hide thanks to the introduction of shot clocks. The Grand Slam Board, responsible for the rules at the four majors, confirmed Tuesday that the Australian Open's request to raise the time from 20 to 25 seconds and strictly enforce it with an electronic shot clock had been accepted.A two-day rules meeting of the Grand Slam Board in London also agreed to limit prematch warm-ups to five minutes.The 25-second shot clock was used in the U.S. Open qualifying event this year and also at the Next Gen ATP Finals in Milan earlier this month.
