Are Women Penalized More Than Men in Tennis? Data Says No

Serena Williams argued that she was subject to a double standard when she was cited for verbal abuse by the chair umpire Carlos Ramos during the United States Open women’s final last Saturday.

“There are men out here who do a lot worse than me, but because I’m a woman you are going to take this away from me?” she protested to Brian Earley, the tournament referee. “That is not right.”

Each situation should be evaluated on its own merits, but according to data compiled by officials at Grand Slam tournaments for the past 20 years, men are penalized more often for verbal abuse.

Men have been fined 646 times for racket abuse and 287 times for unsportsmanlike conduct. Women have been fined 99 times for racket abuse and 67 times for unsportsmanlike conduct during that span.

The disparities are similar for audible obscenity fines (344 for the men, 140 for the women) and, most relevant to Williams’s complaint, verbal abuse (62 for the men, 16 for the women).

Serena takes the final L. How can she ever recover?

Others have tbh.

Still, a damn shame. She should have been known as the GOAT women's player. Now even if she does get the most Slams, she'll be remembered for the us open final in 2018.

50 years down the line down the pub I take my great grandson and we are talking tennis. I mention Serena. He will say isn't that the bad tempered bint from the us open final 2018?

Nah, he'll say he just saw her win a Slam the other day.

Can't wait to watch Serena dominate as a 90 year old.

Cilic smashes his racquet and gets a code violation by the dame umpire who destroyed Serenas reputation

But but only women get picked on

Serena is humiliated

What does this have to do with her US Open outburst?

You really need to accept you have some bizarre obsession with Serena.

It's bare weird.
