Serena Williams' coach says in-match coaching would boost tennis

A few games later, Williams received another warning, this time for smashing her racket, and that second violation automatically cost her a point. Eventually, Williams called Ramos “a thief,” drawing a third violation, this one for “verbal abuse,” which cost her a game. Williams was fined a total of $ 17,000 the next day, including $ 4,000 for coaching, which is not allowed in Grand Slam matches.
