Tension (6)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

stress

'tension' is the definition.
(I know that tension can be written as stress)

This is all the clue.

(Other definitions for stress that I've seen before include "Lay emphasis on - it's a strain" , "what causes tension" , "possible excuse for sickie?" , "Dwell on" , "Emphasize" .)

I've seen this clue in The Irish Independent, the Evening Standard, The Telegraph and The Star Tribune.
