"However, these calculations don't take into account whether umpires are more likely to punish female players than men for a similar outburst during a match.

After the heated final, current and former players weighed in on the debate.

Marion Bartoli, the 2013 Wimbledon champion, questioned the umpire's interpretation of the rules. "When there is absolutely no curse or verbal abuse from Serena then giving her a game penalty is insane. You can't do that. It is impossible."

"She's right [Serena Williams] when she says the men say 10 times worse and don't even get a warning."

But former British number one Annabel Croft didn't think Carlos Ramos was sexist, rather that he's a strict official "who takes nothing from any opponent whether they're male or female"."
