+1 for seeing the footage of this, I forget they aren't allowed any coaching.. is that in all tournaments?

I think it is never allowed for men, but is allowed for women outside of Grand Slams.

So Serena Williams, for example, can be coached during WTA (Women's tennis association) tournaments but not in Grand Slams.

Men cannot in any tournaments. This difference is interesting in it's own right.

And sure @teamflowstate , here you can see the umpire give Serena a penalty here in the US Open 2018!
