Code Violations this year

I thought this was interesting in light of Serenas comment "because they are a man it doesn't matter.":

During the three previous Grand Slams before the US Open — the French Open, Wimbledon and Australian Open — men were assessed 59 code violations, almost twice as many as the women. The men were issued violations for coaching nine times and the most common violation was abuse of racket/equipment 19 times.

5 time delays, 6 audible obscenities and 2 coaching warnings for the entire US Open? Yeah right!

These rules really are poorly enforced!

Only women got coaching violations as well, so who was the other woman and is there an indirect connection with coaching being allowed in the WTA?

How would a "free-for-all" version of the tour go down for you lot?

Adhere to a bare modicum of rule structures pertaining to actually putting the ball over the net and between the lines.

Beyond that, rectums can be probed at will, etc.

It’s not granular enough.

“Time violations” should be broken down into (1) butt picking, (2) ball bouncing and (3) other, so we can get a better picture of what is going on.

Also, I don’t see “on-court change of clothing”.
First butt picking is a warning?

The graph says “US Open Fines” across the top.

Who was fined for time delays? Can you associate names with the numbers?

Are you sure this graph is valid?

Sorry. I get it now. To me, fines means money.

Men are more prone to break rules than women? This is probably in line with other social scientific findings.
Or women are less likely to be punished for breaking the rules than men? That's also in line with social scientific findings

Women may be less likely to be as punished as severely, but given the size of the male prison peopulation compared to the female population I think it's pretty safe to say who the big rule breakers are!

We all know the audible obscenity stuff is a joke. Please. Lol this is why people freak on umps. They barely enforce it then they do.

Not anyone curses in English. And how umpires can tell if they don't know exactly what was said?

They call that "league" tennis. ;^)B
 
it is actually quite interesting seeing Fedalovic fans uniting over this issue. It was Serena's plan all along, she was fighting for unity in the tennis fandom! ;)
