The*Times of Londonis reporting that professional tennis umpires have threatened to boycott officiating Serena Williams’ future matches after she accused sitting officiant Carlos Ramos of “stealing” her points in the US Open.

BBC News set out to end the sexism debate early on Wednesday*by aggregating data*that seems to suggest that Williams’ treatment was not sexist*— women playing the*four 2018 tennis Grand Slams had slightly*fewer deductions, on average, than their male counterparts.*But race was not taken into account in this calculus.
