Oh here he is:

John McEnroe, one of the game’s most tempestuous characters in his playing days, said the sport must find a way to allow players to express feelings and inject their personality into the game while adhering to the rules. Ramos should not have given Williams a violation for breaking her racquet and should have warned her early on about what would happen if she did not move on, he said.

“I’ve said far worse,” McEnroe, a seven-times Grand Slam singles winner, said on ESPN. “She’s right about the guys being held to a different standard, there’s no question.”

In basketball, if you slam the ball in anger, you get a technical foul.

In football, if you show up a referee, you get an unsportsmanlike penalty.

In baseball, if you kick dirt on the umpire, you get booted from the game.

Sure.

So long as it's applied consistently.

That's the point.  John McEnroe did far worse and was never penalized like this.  Why?

John McEnroe played years and years ago, when people were less snowflaky.

Now everyone is more hypersensitive. Kobe Bryant got fined for calling another player "f*g." In the days of McEnroe, NBA players trash talked far worse.

It's PC run amok.

Now you're getting it.. Ramos, the chair umpire, was snowflaky..  As McEnroe said, he overreacted..

Not really. Serena should have been smart enough to realize that she could get penalized for showing up an official. It's happened to her before. Guess she just isn't that smart.

Instead of apologizing for her behavior, she wants to play the sexism card. That is lame, but not surprising considering her character.

You know that's what she's thinking.
