OF COURSE, THE COACHES ARE MEN:

Report: Men penalized significantly more than women in tennis (Ryan Young, Sep 14, 2018, Yahoo)

The report, looking at fines data at Grand Slam events from 1998 to 2018, found that women were fined 535 times, while men were fined 1,517 times.

Women only outnumbered men in two categories over the past two decades -- racking up 152 fines for coaching, compared to just 87 for men, and 10 no press fines, compared to just six for men.

Here are some of the biggest fines, from the New York Times:
