This same umpire has a reputation for being a "by the book" umpire, but also being very consistent about issuing code violations. He's sanctioned Andy Murray for saying "stupid umpiring," something that I think we all would agree is less egregious than Serena's "thief" remark. So her "sexist" rant is just balderdash as it relates to this situation; she has experienced real discrimination in her career, but this wasn't anywhere close to that. The only reason this is being discussed is because she was getting outplayed and the umpire was a male.

Sounds to me like Serena thought she was going to be able to bully Ramos into pandering to her, and he was having none of it and took care of business.

Basketball officials that won't give warranted T's could learn something from this.
