But exactly how. And when and even if is very much of the air
"Happy new year to everyone. That's listening to us from tomorrow onwards. Hurry it's not twenty twenty anymore. It's another rubbish year north. At the moment it is the trajectory is upwards with twenty twenty. The trajectory was downwards. And that's that's not very good. I mean unless you started off the with a crippling eye infection but But it's fine. He's gonna stole it off on a on a sinking low and then begin to climb to high heights but that will will get the redoing podcast as well so that just partially mitigates the sinking lows of the so the air. And i'm just not having any more pessimism. Because i can't take it no it it. It's k acquired a puppy now so i'm all of 'em all about the optimism rock and i can do lockdown. Now how you happy new year quite recording this year's eve but you may well be listening to it in the year. Twenty twenty one from the future. Remember policy that we censor. Everyone's big plans for tonight sleeping. I was. I was concerned when david said he's he's had enough of pessimism and he's talking to us. That concerns me. Yeah need to be more optimistic of optimism for the three of us were. He's he certainly does fakes. Big big plans for tonight. David young kids. They're going to start until ten. I'm going to start until ten seventy. We're gonna rock it yet for anybody outside of the uk listening to this. We also i mean even if we were big time years people that would be nowhere frisco and nothing for today because everything's closed not allowed to see anyone. It's the new year scrooges dream actually. This is the first year is that. I have to justify or explain myself for not wanting to go clubbing on easy. Ironically this is the one year actually do want to go clubbing. Time my life. I would give anything to go clubbing. And i've literally never felt that way before you even close to it interesting to see what would happen if you could sort of exchange the to feelings. With respective years that they would align more health it would have helped me out of some witty dia situations in the past new year's relived it sir. It's well actually. Should we cover it. Should we cover off our tiny we morsels of if news before we get going with with. I know you're chomping at the bit david for at grow and we will get there very soon because there's not an awful lot of news. What we've got is that andy. Murray is now no longer. Playing the event of the year in doe ray beach. I think he could tell if marie actions when we reported that he he was down to play we were. We were pretty surprised by that Perhaps perhaps not so surprised that he's no longer down to play. We understand courtesy of elena crooks from pa that the association that is the. It's not it's not a fitness related withdrawal. We didn't know anything anything further. I assume something covert and travel related. But it's not a fitness relates to put out some some quotes to that effect now And and just the given the increase in covid rates in the transatlantic flights involved. I want to minimize the risks ahead of the australian open Which does tally with. What dan evans told me a few days ago and he pulled out earlier this week he was also gonna go to dell at one point but he just said this does The rules about getting into australia and getting into the australian open which he felt that delray beach could potentially compromise and and if he would have picked up the virus that he may have a real problem and he felt that the chances of getting that much higher so on the bounce of it all he would stay in the uk. Practice get ready and then flats by on the fifteenth of january. So and. i think that's what he's gonna do and they are going to do one of these little prentice bubbles between them. Yeah as i understand it. They're all there were three locations. Were tennis australia. Were laying on charter flights to into melbourne One of them is certainly dubai. Believe the us sworn is in la so to play delray beach. It wouldn't just be a matter of getting delray beach implying that you then have a an internal. Us flight ahead of you as well which surely makes it even less. Enticing prospects say That's that we live. News we will say Got news the ashpalt and brady ought to play doubles together in the australian open getting. Does that reignited. You'll brady fire david hers. It's best aside reignited. It's just been smoldering along. Evison thinking of unknown stolen. Very i i. I do hope that there's more of this though for the australian open if we could if we're moving the dates as they have in. It's going back three weeks and everything is thrown up in the way it is one nice little bonus would be some doubles teams just emerged out of singles plas- that you wouldn't normally gas and you could just just half an extra to the tournament so and i think that that's already a big one I can see the express online headline now. David law fire for jennifer brady continues to smolder

"He would have been able to take the call into his time because he was just in so much pain and his head was thronging and. He sort of did a comparison to how he how he thinks. He's going to feel sort of now compared to how he was feeling then and he said. The. Difference is night and day and he's social feeling much better. Now he's going to get a good night's sleep whereas he wasn't even able to sleep look in eighteen months ago because he was in so much pain and I mean. You know he's been so used to. Being on the tennis court and physically hurting over the last three years when every step on call he's he's been pain and he's now in a position where not only is the general quality of life better. But he's on a tennis court and not being in too much pain either I mean there's obviously the usual aches and pains but it's nothing that is nothing that I don't think he can put up with and kind of deal with and it's it's such a massive transformation. That's really encouraging and long continue. Yeah my mind always goes back to that image. You Describe Catherine when you were interviewing him back that's Australian Open when he couldn't get on the stool properly in order to be interviewed by you and I think that that just sums it up. To a you just how what about state he was in well thankfully seems is in a way now and he could meet down Evans in the third round. Evans today beat a player whose name I am really struggling with and I'm trying really hard to. To say correctly and we we played over and over on the website that the sound fall they give you and I still can't say it do not state math. Put me on the spot they can you give us Auto Tiago? Say It's it's apparently well, it reads it reads Sabbath willed or wild but when he says it's IAGO Xybernaut. And I cannot even say what the third word is I just I just can't make it out to anyway. she we started calling him xybernaut. She took about. A certain Finnish tennis player will we will be on this particular coldest hack. Yes. Okay. Here's. Evans, one by the way in three sets and he was good and. It meal meal ru? Suv Ori-. Who Be? Better night today he has he has four us in his surname. In a ten letter surname four of US yeah. Anyone got to be a rally. We really need to know how to say that because I think he might be really really good. I think I think it's it's it's pressing matter. To nail that. I'll tell you what I think Tiago is going to be pretty good on the players well, a story win that's ornament in Rio. Earlier this year he's he's very talented. So we're going to have to learn that one as well. Now does not as talented as Dan. Evans. Apparently. Not, today. So. Anyway. Third Round will it happen? That's the big question we. Yacht he'd done. Evans. Plays in the second round didn't think Muti over. Know in our press conference in Aura interview with. A couple of hours ago now he said, oh he he'd you think a win that and I was expecting a you know not sure you know both quite pricey. Six four, six, four so far. Current Tom you take today that way. So there you go and early on after that, we had Serena Williams one through seven, five, six, three today, and she was a break of serve down in the second set against Christiaan. Compatriots pretty good result surrender isn't it and the fact that she did it without expending too much. It's the first time. She's played a two setbacks since she came back from the lockdown and she was joking about that afterwards saying that it's the first time she's WanNa. WanNa straight-sets Max since the nineties was her was sort of timeframe just just an indication of how much I think it's been on her mind that she's not been able to win these matches. Comfortably she was. Quite off her game the Star I. Think she was a breakdown early on and by the end I thought she'd really settled. It was actually playing quite nicely and it was quite a it was quite a comfortable victory in the end and I think she could probably. Play at that level for around two more and be fine in this tournament. Before. She will need to absolutely raise it in the latter stages. But Yeah I kind of encouraging encouraging star I think for Serena. Louis Armstrong is the co you wanted to be own. If you wanted inefficient day because whilst Andy Murray took four hours, forty minutes for his match Louis Armstrong got through four matches pretty much got McGrath is six, four, six, four, hundred now be. Dominant team was two sets up when Gentlemen Muna retired Sephardic Kenan six two, six, two of Ianina Wick. Ma and Madison keys six, one, six one of the Tomato Babaoshan they're already in two sets down with Dimitrov leading. Tell me Paul at the moment so. Very quick over there. Another epic for OJ seem against Monteiro. Any other big matches that we should talk about today. Contour Watson, I suppose we should cover from a British perspective and that I said was bonkers because. I saw I mean we going on at the same time as Murray but I noticed that concert was serving for the set. Then she wasn't then she was set point down several times and then she won the set. Watson served for the first set and also held a three set points six three in the tie-break. So I think that. She. And she looks she. See, she had a rotten record against a concert coming into that much. Three.

Halep lays Grand Slam ghosts to rest
"Hello and welcome to our fifteenth and final edition of Roland Garros relived Catherine feeling when I say that. Wistful. I'M GONNA I'm GonNa stop missing the past sort of like A. Double again I will. Note that is. Are You you're right I'm all right I can believe it's the fifteen. Well when I came up with the idea, let's just keep doing the daily podcast. Slams that we promised we would at the start of the, even though there's no tennis by watching lots of action, the past I thought it'd be easy. Turns out then we got lots of ideas about how to do it. Including interviewing everybody, we possibly could find relevant to each match, and that's what we've done again today. for Simona halep against Sloan Stevens 2018 final, and we've got down K. Hilas special guest coach to Simona Halep, and yes, it's been a long and tiring journey to get through today fifteen of these podcasts. We've enjoyed it immensely. I think it's fair to say. So let's get cracking with this one. This match has a lot to it. Doesn't it the whole saga because? Simona. Is it three Grand Slam. She already played. At the to that point and not. Finals yeah, yeah. She played the two, thousand, fourteen and final, and lost in three to Sharapova. She'd played the two thousand, seventeen, French Open final and lost in three Ostapenko, and she played the twenty eighteen Australian Open. Final just a few months before they send those to Wozniacki all three senators. She played well in all of them. She had a lead in all of them and lost all of them. And it was becoming a real. Saga actually. Can help get over the, line. 2018, you say. You want some facts about two thousand eighteen. We. Well, it's not long ago, so you can probably remember most of this Prince Harry and Meghan markle married. Thing right I hosted a semi. Gathering in the garden, did you did you was on the invitation? To, clarify with a few friends and family that I wasn't like a rabid royalist, and it was just an excuse to make some cake and sausage rolls. The I remember seeing the pictures. Wasn't invited that. We can handle it. aretha Franklin and Stephen Hawkins' both died toys. R.. US went bankrupt. Not Quite sure why that to my list, but it is. I'm not sure nothing either. Toys R. US went bankrupt and student Matt's became Grad Matt became Matt. Two thousand eighteen was a big. And formation. Toys R. US, they might. How do you feel about that? No I think it was pressed. Until Lo que, but so I was reading it. I won't saw. Phillips scattered toys R. US In writing when I was about five. States have good stories. Did you speak for? Him! I remember being very excited because it was circuit in the gopher. Time, I was at my dad. That's a long time ago yet. Longtime Gay and I think it was. Joseph in mazing technical latrine time as well right Matt, wasn't even Baby Matt at this point. He's never even heard of these people. You don't know Gordon the gopher is Dima. No. Right so. Just, minded ninety correction. You didn't mention that freedom got promoted into anti eighteen. Thank you for pointing that out. Rather than to. And it didn't last long. It's as relevant as toys R. US, thank you I so. Yes, so we have this final on our hands between SMYRNA HALEP and Sloan seems and it was one that. I was I was looking forward to. A tennis match in. It's just in its own right of these two players battling it out because I thought it could be a really good final. And, should he? I think it ended up exceeding all of those expectations and You're quite right Catherine when you talk about the number of finals, the the salmon halibut already been in, and it was similar to play as we think of that. We've already covered here in this running relived series like even lendl trying to win. A A I slam Andy Murray course. It took him a few guys. Goran Ivanisevic but Simona Halla. Yeah, she already had three. She'd had Darren K Hill by his side for awhile by this point, so let's hear from him about the journey that led to this moments. Together for about three us before she played that particular foreign against flown in two thousand and nineteen and I guess the memory of what happened in two thousand, seventeen, against Ostapenko, as well was brought in the full fun of Amazon so for her to go out and do what she did. And now they say that both of you most destinations. You can't get there unless you go to refund pain a tough road and that was kind of the journey that some had had even before I came along. She might the final. Open and lost Marie shower. Piping, a great match on six four on the third added chances in that one, and then to lose to paint code and then the Knicks Jay come back, an inbetween that of course remember the final that she applied at the open against the Yankee which was another great match, and just even getting to the final at the Australian Open was itself, so I I think that helped a lot. She learned a lot from that particular tournament, and when she got to the final at a French. Against Launch, he had a little extra confidence and belief in a self to finally get it done.
Nick Saviano from world the renowned Saviano Tennis Academy
"Hi Nick Welcome to the Functional Tennis podcast pleasure to be here. I've been meaning to get you on the show while we have your honor top academies around the world page which is probably one of our most viewed pages on the website. So it's great to of see. We've the Blurb Rebecca Academy and all the details would. It's great to speak to the main mind as well so delighted to chat which tell me how is life at the moment with all this cove? It situation has DECAPA me gone well. Unfortunately we have had to shut the academy down at least temporarily as all the Kaddoumi's in Florida have done and I guess around the World. But we've been able to stay in touch with our players and we are poised and ready to go as soon as they open. Things are coming in the next week or two. So we're pretty excited to get back out on the courts and fully functioning. Well that's great news. You haven't locked all your players in Lake. Rafeh did no. I didn't know he locked them all in but no we have not done that in a lot of our players actually are here with emily members or they're at private housing so we're good to go. He had me. Did Inscribe live with I think was Andy Murray Sane? Whenever they got closed down whoever was stuck there had to stay there. Nobody's lead in or out so he's running a tight ship over there. Well you have to. Whenever you're dealing with. Young people is enormous responsibility. So you always have to err on the side of caution. Yes no true. It's different when you're entrusted by parents to do the best for the kids so I think you're right. It's really important. So tell me a bit of empty Kademi. How long has the KADEMI being an operation? Well I started the academy shortly after leaving the US. Ta at the US was a national coach for boys tennis. I was eventually director coaching for men's tennis for the United States. I played on the tour for nine years and then I was also the head of high performance coaching education which was really actually exciting and then after that when I left I opened the academy in two thousand and three in. I started working with a few players I decided I really wanted to go out on my own and established my own methodology and a lawsuit for coaching and working with young people. So way back then. Two thousand three. That's when we started and it went extremely well and some of the believe it or not some of the first people I was working with were jan-michael Gambill. And also Vince Spadea. And also very young. Eleven year old. Sloan Stevens came a few years later and Jeannie Bouchard and Monica Point Again. A lot of other really good players started evolving or coming. And so it's been really exciting. It's been an amazing experience. Actually over the years up really really enjoyed it. Let's just cut back a bit before the academy and before. Usda tour life. You're a top fifty player. What was it like in the late seventies being a top fifty player? It was an amazing experience. I was one of the top. Juniors in the United States at the end of the year is ranked tree in the country. Then was the top recruit going into college so I wanNA going to Stanford. University was an all American there my freshman and sophomore year. Then I turned pro but back then I was one hundred thirty two in the world when Charon pro took me only four months and I was in the top hundred so the depth and the game wasn't quite the same as it is now so in one respect it was. Let's say less of a long grind to get into the top one hundred but on the other hand the rewards weren't as great nowadays. The players go to phenomenal hotels. They get paid and qualifying. The money is great. I remember I got around sixteen. At Wimbledon twice and the specific number I remember was four thousand pounds now. Four THOUSAND POUNDS. That probably is about seven or eight thousand dollars. Not even that much and today. I'm not sure what the guys in the gals paid for a fourth-round let's say Wimbledon. But I would suspect it's probably in the two hundred thousand range so money has changed a lot but it's more than just the money the quality of the way everything runs on the tour the ability to communicate with people. You know you have the phones. You have computers when I was playing. We didn't have cell phones. Believe it or not so completely different world when you went away for six weeks you really were far away. It was tough to get phone calls back with your families and so is a different way of life back then than it is now and I enjoyed it. I love playing the Grand Slams but I retired at twenty eight years old. I spent about eight and a half years on the tour and when I retired I was still in the top hundred for singles and doubles. I was recently married and we had our first child and when my first child was born. Nicole our daughter that was it. I said I'm done and I'm going to get a head start on the rest of my career which turned out to be coaching. Those a good decision and tell me what was your most memorable match. Great question one of the most memorable matches I ever had was in England. At Wimbledon I was playing a match against Pat Dupre. Who was a semi-finalist the year before and I believe at the time was ranch around twelve in the world and the day before I played buster macho from England and he was number one British player and I remember having served to save the match five or six times so I one nine seven in the fifth set and so I had to come out the next day and play again against Patty pray and this match was in cold fog long match and I remember my body aching and wound up winning at one. Twelve ten in the fifth set and I remember just kind of overcoming the exhaustion and at ten all eleven ten. I was ahead and I finally got a break point and I remembered to this day thinking okay. Should I go for this and ripped return because you know I just can't seem to break and this is one opportunity so I cheated thinking he was going to hit back in he did and I happened to hit it? Just right and boom. It was a winner and thank goodness over. I had a couple long matches. In Wimbledon at one with Brian Godfrey four in the world and that took either three or four days to complete believe it or not and I was down two sets to love and five two and it was almost nine o'clock at night the US keepers. Were all there waiting to the targets of the courts. So they're waiting for me to lose so I was down two point quickly. Want Upholding Sur. Five three and I played one of the best games of my life. Five four I bright serve. I hold sir. I break him and win the set then because we were there late. They didn't put me on I the next day and so they had a women's match on it rained a lot that day so that was a Friday. We only got like five games in so then pushed us over till Saturday but of course we were onto cords till very late again and so they didn't put us on ride again so we wound up playing one set and then it got dark again and then of course Sunday play so then we have to wait and then on Monday morning we played. We've finished the match and it had a happy ending. I one six one fits so those were my two good memories of Wimbledon long matches that stood out.

By fairly fast actually despite the lack of store which is really weird. I think I've kind of just go used to it now but having said that I did cheat in worship Madrid. I didn't won't should awful. I have to say it was. Radi my cup of tea just kind of saying it on a playstation today. What is g thing? Yeah it was a bit of kind of a completely new scenario new situation and I think it's kind of recognizes that living in these times they can open up new opportunities and of course you know this is one of them in the tennis world and I thought it was kind of really interesting to say I think in terms of what I liked. I absolutely loved the place. Be BUYING INTO IT. And procreating like the war codes Up there that the herbs to the controller I really loved that I'd like pretending to warm up thumbs and I really liked the way that kind of the players go invested in it and we're kind of really enthusiastic about getting creative and and kind of showing it off on on social media See I think that was kind of one of the things I I really liked. I saw I think it was Belinda. Bench really went. Allow it like a tennis gear. As I said could walk up the stairs a yeah just thought it was great to see getting really enthusiastic about it. 'cause we've not seen them on a TV. We're not seeing the you know what she pilots. Whatever as fans over the last few months it's just almost kind of great great to see them again really. Yeah I thought that was. That was good like the best saying the players saying the engage with the wall. I thought bench probably owned that one. I just like the little bits in the corner. We can just see their faces as they're playing. You just want to see their homes in the pack right to see what what. They've gone like their bookshelves or like. I just find it really interesting is like through the Keyhole. But he the past and that is really hyping. The stands framed in the background. Well potentially coming up in this focus on his lovely shorts but no yeah I. I didn't really like actually watching this. Nsa Watch just liked having the players kind of interacting having a bit of a laugh so that was nice to see the thing. This format would. I didn't think I'd want to see this every week. I think it would get a bit repetitive. After a while but I think it was a good kind of one off thing and obviously Andy Murray one that we should give him credit for that because he's now won the tournament on three different surfaces. If you can cool the virtual sphere surface adolphus. The Andy has donated his prize. Money half is going to the NHS and half is Gordon to the players Relief Fund. So it's obviously for Good Kohl's and Kiki burdens won the women's event as well and I think she was actually due to defend. Muhtar to say she has succeeded into that are mixed in our love. I love that idea. She's she's the non virtual virtual back to back very innovative. Double D for a champion. But yeah I think yes kind of great to see I guess. Play his Getting involved I think one of the things that I think they could have done. Better way of is the had this common tree over the top of the of the players. Now I I was kind of the point where I think it's more insightful. And more interesting if you just let the play is very commentary because Y- They are tennis players that professionals at the end of the day you'll be ready. I think what bringing up level is kind of almost kind of getting them to kind of talk about the tactics or you know that sort of that sort of level that sort of layer that. Yeah well my sick on a Royal Corps And it's like if I was doing this show in real life. I would choose to go here because of X. Y. And Said Yeah. It could be more of an educational thing as well I think what I did. I cheat and they lost connection because I was watching on light-years addicts correct show. It was just having to could LE- sort of chats while they were waiting for everything to ten on again. Did you see the I think Diego Schwarzer was best. Play at Deborrah. The savvy FIDO's but due to a weak WIFI CONNECTION. Debry a sorry. Schwartzman had to concede walkway. So I mean I love that idea. The like I think that's going to be one of the VAD. The walkover reasons happens to the best of our good today that like even top tennis players have poor Wi fi and all safely on. La has had a bit of a Jake because he said that Rafa could play because he'd like injured his back reaching for his game controller. Which and everyone believes here. I think I mean I think we believed him as well. As we've always believed tweeted about be cowed they gig for Geria- saw and I thought this this off to the best of the fortunately that was not the case. Rafeh was able to play. But we'll just very gullible but yeah if they're going to do this again like I think it could cost you on. But just every now and again maybe they do in other Walden on like Wimbledon. I different surfaces. I assume this playstation game has all the different surfaces they do girl scout one. Couldn't they maybe federal workup? That yeah that I think it could work. I think it could coexist when the tools get back up and running. I wonder if it's a sort of you know in the in the grounds of the events and you have fans can go line up for like an autograph from players and I wonder whether you could be like. There's a stand somewhere grandson for example. Oh face off against some. I player playing tennis against them. Virtually Sake I could see that happening. I know there are a few comments. The game was almost up to like up to scratch And you know whether it's the improvements to be made with with the game and you know I think I think potentially peop- governing bodies like the ATP liked the W. H. E. A. Maybe they should be looking at partnering with Game's about to really kind of Mak- licensed game like fever. Because I think you know I think this is as you said. This is very new is almost kind of this was a test and you know. I think there is appetite for it but I think there's almost kind of a lot can be done on that so a product side of it. Yeah for sure. I'm sure that's an avenue. They could possibly see going for. It's an yeah I like the idea that you could maybe have a bit of a play on it while you are an event. Perhaps if during a rain delay or something and even on Joe we actually have some real tennis. That's happened this weekend in Germany. It's kind of the first actual players of setback on cool so they've done a little exhibition featuring Dustin Brown and seven other players including randomly the British benign. Yon Shouldn't ski. Who I think is based in Germany. Anyway so yeah. That's been happening this weekend. We'll see JEB. So you fall head of other countries. Getting back to normalcy. So they've been out to do this. Little event Neko blends at the Base Tennis Academy. It's GonNa oversee how necessary health and safety measures in place. So they've obviously not touching hands at the net. They're going to touch rockets instead. There's no ballboys fans line judges. They're obviously doing it. Very watered down version is not for any points or or anything. It's not count I guess. Prize money's involved. So it's I guess aimed at lower ranked players to to kind of keep them earning something during this time and I think it's only for players based within about ninety minutes of the event so it's overseas a very limited
Tennis adapting to the new normal: French Open 'unilateral' September Switch; 'Flushing-Garros' slams back-to-back?; Laver Cup & ATP/WTA responses analysed; 'Excusez-moi?' Players find out on social media; Tips for fans to cope with no tennis
"Everyone and welcome to the passing Shaw. The tennis poke caused by fans four fans with your host Jolan Kim. Today on the show. We're going to be bringing you up to speed on all the latest developments of the corona virus hit tennis season including the French controversial date change the ATP and WBZ's movement to a collective approach decision making and how players are keeping on their training routines in home. Kim I find this all very surreal. It could have been Indian Wells. Men's Fund will stay. We could have been previewing the AP we could have been. Who knows. Maybe looking forward to Andy Murray in back onto a tennis court but unfortunately sadly all that is on hold seemingly indefinitely a you you in high spirits. Nassir to Joe. I mean I've just it just keeps getting from bad worse doesn't There is just as old ask for control. We company do anything we have to sort of hate for the best and I mean there are things we can do. We can follow advice and stay inside of course but yeah. I would give anything right now just to have. Tennis is a poker it like whoever it is I will. I will accept the crappiest final in Tennessee straight. Means we have lives for again right. I find it quite funny. Actually because even though we no life tennis to kind of talk over there still seems to be actually more tennis news to actually To actually catch up because you know we still had a lot of information. Come at us from the tennis world. some some more surprising than others. And obviously we'll get onto that. Let's just give our listeners on ourselves. Actually a pair of the of the lay of the landscape at the moment the Toys R. Off Indefinitely Think. Officially at the moment they've been suspended to the seventh of June which is basically ruled out. Oh Clay Court tennis. So we've had all the tournaments in Madrid Rome Strasbourg Rats Munich astro Geneva Leon who whites from the calendar ranking points have been frozen as well so yeah we've got no. I got life headed to come to full with T. But when this was kind of announced I think the big the big talker boy it just the state the announcement was the that the ATP at W. Ta said now is the time to act unilaterally. Kim But in unison. Yeah so I mean they overeat out what they said. And I'll see if our listeners can notice what's missing so auden all decisions related to the impact of the creative. Irs Require Consultation and review with the stakeholders in the game view that is shared by ATP WPA the ANC tennis Australia and the USDA. So Joe. What's missing from US announcement. I think that I think maybe the French tennis federation a missing. I I have no idea why that is the case. They could have been because they went compete. Ray who can just reschedule tournament at the top of a heart without telling anyone our consulting anyone involved in which is going to be a might have something to do with it. I think I've eaten. What bold move. I mean understand that they obviously won't let on to happen at some point and is obviously wasn't going to really happen you know saying it's the it's the next. Grand Slam in the calendar but the decision they took was just so so rash and they've moved to the most awkward position arguably in the calendar. You know just all for the USA. But I think there's about six days in between the end of the US Open. Stop the French Open. This is all hypothetical oversee. None of this may happen and from what I've read from some circles. It's unlikely that we'll probably have any tennis the rest of the year. I don't know I mean. I'm hoping that's not the case. Obviously but all of the kind of ramifications. Ooh Who's GonNa play what what's going to happen like might be null and void because they might white everything a. Let's let's say hypothetically that it does. Let's say the French will go ahead in September? I think the dates they have said at the moment it will take place is September twentieth to the Fourth of October. First of all clay-court Teddy's at that time. That's not going to be fun is it? Yeah it's going to be very cold. I mean even wrote on Garza's on end of May beginning of genie's they can have some terrible weather and to be fed they do have the reef but also there wouldn't be any legal tournaments in in-involved say people would be coming in like fresh off the hard courts Without any practice unless they choose to focus just on the clay and took themselves off to some challenger events or futures the because I think those things they could probably arrange you know in advance kind of place at the time to kind of set them out for like practice. I think they're easier to kind of just put on a shorter natives. But it's just yeah. I mean what you do for example if you're if you're a rapper. He's defending the US. Open defending the French shape in this year. Does he just play both and hope he can defend both? Does he pick one over the other. It's just the strangest decision and we've never seen this happened before but it's is just I mean. Would that be the most remarkable achievement if someone one base of as black tobacco? We've talked about someone winning the French Open and Wimbledon boxy. There's still a gap of several weeks between those two but and that's obviously not being done an awful lot so this would be some fate if it was a chief. Yeah I mean certainly. I think it's still by the the PA. The calendar is obese. Like a back to back grand slams. We've got the sunshine double. It did well by. Abby is you've got the I coined it on twitter at the the flushing guerrillas days It's certainly that that would be a challenge for I mean for a lot of players especially for someone like Nidal. He is the defending champion in both of them. Both events would be taken enormous toll on the body. And you know we've seen you know the big three that approach to the season to take kind of a stripped back approach pick and choose events and it does it does bring up the question of you know if that does go ahead and you have back to back Grand Slams. Is it possible to debate for which you have to watch? You have to be really refocused and just say I'm going to do one or the other and you think that potentially from the Dow I would just focus on on the French Open as it would pay me to say given defended the US Open champion. Ba Yeah it feels like just focus on on one. I mean he would be the history again at the friendship going. Thirteen to add. It would be great if he could win at different times of the year when the conditions that may be different because that would just I guess ultimately proved that Hey I am totally trae anytime of the year. I will be there at the top so you'd have to think he would go for the French over the US. But I mean another thing. Is that depending on. When or if the season comes back like players will have had a long spell of time. You know in competition say they might be much fresher healthier and injury free so it might not matter too much in terms of the toll on their bodies as if this is happening at the end of animals is not that we would see this kind of contrast normally it might be the impact might be lessened somewhat because of that. But I mean who say. We haven't mentioned that it will say clashes with the Labor cop which is technically an exhibition right. It's not like a proper event but basically all the top names you know have signed up and committed to playing and all the tickets have been sold. Yeah sold out. It's being held in Boston. Which is I guess. A logical place to for them to get off the Apron said exhibition senior team world. Lovely what will I mean tires on surely going to pick that over the friendship? And but it's
Ram, Salisbury clinch men's doubles title in Melbourne
"The doubles final. Men's doubles final. Won by Britain's Joe Salisbury and America's Ranchi Ram and. It was their first. Is the first ever slam for Joe Spur. Who played brilliantly today?

It was something like his fifty eighth. Men's Grand Slam tournament something like that fifty six or fifty eight thirty fine. He got his first one and for it's one of those partnerships switch has massively worked out for both of them. I mean Joe Souls you know not many people knew about each other souls bree eighteen months ago and now he's a grand slam champion. Ram has helped him get over the line and they were.

Craig toilet would you believe I'm you this because when when when he said that unquote that it reminded me.

He was doing that for about ten years and he ran the whole program at telenor. University and on his team was Rajiv.

Girga six four six one to win the Luxembourg open. It's a first title since two thousand Seventeen A BIG A big deal. Frosty Pinko You know to go two years without winning title over two years Is quite dry spell. I mean she's young. She's twenty one. I believe so. You know this is somebody who still has a long career ahead of her with you. Know plenty of opportunities to win more titles. Two years is a long time now A lot of people think that when I say that she hasn't won a title in a couple of years since two thousand seventeen that that means that it was the French Open. And that's not really the case And she won the French Open of course That was the first title of her career. industry the biggest titled. Pro Career But the she won the Korean open At the timber. That was A big deal for her. Obviously 'cause decade or two titles for the year and one outside of the French Open but it's been over two years now and then she. She was a finalist last week. And she won the title this week so good for her But it's a big deal. It's not the same as winning your first title and look winning your first titled Career. Being Roland Garros a Grand Slam. That's just how do you top it? You can't raise I mean it's You can only maybe match it by winning. Another Grand Slam title but That's that's huge that being said It's a big dry spell in winning. This is kind of similar to you. Know winning Prefers title A lot of ways because it's been so long for her and she's had opportunities she's had chances But she's been unable to to win one cents. You know since two thousand seventeen so good for her next up. Blend benches defeats anesthesia. Pledge I always mess up this this this name. Try saying it's slower slower. Honesty's you Pablo Chink of a three six. Six one six one to win the Moscow open Bench has had a fantastic year. She has been maybe the Comeback Player of the year. Let's face it huge for her. I mean she's been healthy almost the entire season if thought the entire season. She's made multiple deep runs. It's a huge win for her To win the Moscow open Really get a title solid title like this towards the back into the season You know hopefully this will set her up nicely for twenty twenty and the beginning of the year and finally cook off in Katie McNally defeated Kaitlyn Christian and Alexa Guru Archie. Six two six two to win the Luxembourg open doubles title We don't usually talk about doubles too much on here. We tried to in the past and I and I guess I probably could now but I just made it difficult. Because you're trying. Felker was spreading ourselves. Really thin trying to do you know. Dp. There's not a and then tacking on the doubles But I wanted to mention this because you know again. It's another title for Coca Gov this one doubles title And this is the second title for cocoa and Katie for the year. It's just a great accomplishment. So good Good for them. And congratulations and really congratulations to everybody on the ATP in the WTO did win in all of these tournaments. So right so I want to talk about for the topic of the week. This is set to so moving on here I WanNa talk about tempering expectations and I WANNA talk about both Andy Murray and Coca Goff in this segment I'm talking about them about temporary expectations for vastly different reasons. Okay so I up with Andy Andy. One huge title right. There's no doubt that if you're an Indie Murray fan or you're simply rooting for him to have the kind of success that he used to have that you're going to see this win right as a big deal and it is a big deal. It is a big deal but I was reading articles People claiming Anne Marie as totally and fully back. He's completed his comeback and I I saw some comments on twitter and other places online That are kind of tennis. Centric people claiming that Andy is GonNa win grant some titles in two thousand eighteen or twenty twenty mean and really kind of jumping ahead think lot further than they should be look is great as this win was for him in. It was a great win. I'm not taking anything away from his victory. Here let's be honest. This is a stepping-stone folks. It's a steppingstone right. This is not the end and his Andy said That he certainly more optimistic. That's what he said. I'm certainly more optimistic now. And you know it's For somebody this one is many titles. He's won in his career. You'd you wouldn't think that athletes that have won as much as they have would continue to need to be shown that they're capable of winning these titles but Andy's been injured for such a long time in you know it's the beginning of the year he was he was looking at retiring. I watched him in his match. The end of the match. I watched the entire match against Roberto Batista Goud at the Australian Open after the matches over. I watched that video of all those players saying all those really nice things about Andy and wishing him lock in. Because you know one thought he's going to retire. He thought he was going to retire. He thought this is it folks. Maybe maybe he was GonNa make a last appearance. At Wimbledon later later you know well earlier this year but for him it was later in the year and So it looked like he was done. And then you've got that surgery and the results were great and in here we are. This is a big deal for him. It's a big deal. Not just because he has another title because it proved something to him. He's capable of winning titles but again. We have to temporary expectations as fans. If you if you're a fan of Indie you need to acknowledge the fact. That is big of a win. This was for him when he's when he's in a masters one thousand tournament when he's in a grand slam is going to be a different level competition. Yes he faced. You know some solid players In yes he faced a very game Stan Wawrinka who also you know fighting back and getting back to his winning ways so again. I'm not taking anything away from the victories and titled But it's stepping stone and that's what I'm here to say it's a stepping stone. You know. Maybe he's able to win another title before the years out and prove something else himself or just add a little more than other brick to the wall but if he's looking to win you know bigger titles in this. He's going to have to continue to prove to himself. Each and every week every tournament he enters if he enters the five hundred tournament. He's going to have to prove he can win it. If he enters a masters one thousand at a never thing he has to prove to himself that he's able to win at that level because as you get to each you know masters you know five hundred fifty to five hundred thousand. Generally there are some exceptions. But generally you know you go up in the quality of your opponents Across the net masters one thousand. And you're facing the best of the best and when you get to the Grand Slams again you're facing the best of the best. This is just the first step in Andy's comeback so FM just saying take step back. Be a really really happy for him. Really be happy for him but take a deep breath and say baby steps. This is step one all right. Andy won a doubles title. At Eastbourne Out Charlie Eastern Queens Club earlier this year with Lopez. That was huge. This is his first singles title huge. Keep adding on. And that's that's what we need to do as fans we need to take a step back and realize bit. Andy is back in that we can. We've seen the he can compete. But it's GonNa be a lot different. When he's facing Novak Djokovic or in a doll federer or Medvedev or Karen hatching off or any number of the young up and coming players or the old guard. Who's been winning for ever? It's it's GonNa be tougher. It's going to be hard but it's going to be a process and if any goes out there and loses early in a few tournaments or does win that big title in the first few months of the season. It doesn't mean they can't it just means it's a process as in any sport but definitely in. Tennis. It's a process and we need to do the same thing when it comes to coca. Goff Coco is fifteen years old. Last week she wanNA title big big deal. She won a doubles title. It Luxembourg with Kevin McNally. She lost early in Luxembourg. I believe it was her first match and she lost and again. You know we're seeing you know. She's she's getting all of this Attention and it's great. It really is but at the same time. All that attention is start to create expectations that players are simply unable to meet..
"andy murray" Discussed on The Tennis Addict Podcast
"Of the PODCAST. I mean host. Michael and I am fully healthy Finally I seem to have fully kicked whatever I had Whatever had stuck around a lot longer than I thought it would but I'm to the point now where I'm like ninety five to a hundred percent healthy Which is great because his his nice not to have to deal with what I was dealing with for much of the last couple of weeks It hasn't been fun all right so anyway. Let's so let's talk about What's been going on in the world tennis so set one of course as always is going to be the news and then we're GONNA go on to set to which will be our topic of the week and then I got a little bit of feedback since my last episode and we'll cover that in the back end so that will be set three all right. So let's start with one the news so I up. So Andy. Murray defeated Stan Wawrinka. Three six six four six four to win the European open in Antwerp now. This was a massive win. Obviously Andy Murray. I mean there's no way Did you could possibly downplay. How big of a win. This was for him first off. Its title right But the second part is he faced of Berry game opponent on the other side in stable WRCA. Now the kind of funny but the kind of darkly ironic thing going on here is that both Andy and Stan really have been dealing with Very well once a very different Injuries I mean they are different but they're lower body body injuries. Obviously Andy has had that hip issue for the last couple of years. Stan in two thousand seventeen I still think that his match against Andy at the French Open That that was the match. That really hurts Dan We didn't officially see him Limping around or anything. But he was never the same after that French Open semi final victory. He lost very quickly against the dollar in the final. I think part of that must be attributed obviously to play the other part of that however. I think is the fact that Stan was injured. I think he was at the Emmy Luck. It was it was a semi-final played over the course of two days and it was very very physically taxing and I think that that's where he hurt his initially hurt Were Stan hurt? His his knee Now Andy Hurt his hip and it really was never the same for a long time and obviously he got two surgeries. The first one correct the issues I can one did Look these two players that have have had lower body injuries that required surgery and extensive time off of the tour stand. He was able to come back quicker But Andy is now back in. Look Stan it's taken him awhile right. He came back early. Twenty eighteen He obviously came back to quickly. He acknowledged he did Comeback too quickly and it was a problem but slowly but surely as time has gone on Stan. His managed to get back to closer. I guess I would say back to. But he's closer to his former self He he showed that against Novak Djokovic in the US Open this year and his loss in the next round was Do a think as much to his opponent as it was to the fact that he had the flu. All right so without that flew. I think the outcome may have been significantly different so anyway getting back to this. This is a victory for Andy Murray. It was a comeback ready lost. The first set six three stain was playing great. He was pushing Andy L. of the court but slowly slowly but surely Andy managed to kind of grind his way into the match He Got More balls back. He he started going Cross court shorter and sharper angles for his backhand He was going bigger with his forehand trying to push stand back and forth across the the court making him run putting stand in the defensive as often as he could Especially when you go to the back hand side of Stan is going to slice it back to you if you proactive. And you know it's coming. You can rush into the net and put that ball away and Andy was coming to that more in the second the third set that he was in the first set on top of that I think stands level. Dropped a bit. I think he saw the Murray was playing better Tactics that Murray was using was better. Andy was also hitting some dropshots which were very nice Forcing stand come in and a lot of time stand was able to really do much because the quality of the shots So this is a great victory of for Andy. This is definitely a sign that the old Andy is making a comeback and he's on his way all right next up is Dennis Shaparov. Defeating PHILIP CHRONIC. Six four six four to win the Stockholm Open. It is the I eighty title of Dennis. Shebab loves career remember. Dennis is only twenty years old. He is a player. That has a ton of firepower but the biggest problem with him is that at this stage of his career. He is still too much of a shot maker he will. Wow you with amazing shots in a match. I mean he'll hit on the run ripping. You know one handed backhand winners that will make your jaw drop. But then who? Also commit a inordinate amount of unforced errors It'll be high They'll be the worst times and combine that with the fact that I think Dennis is Fitness level while good. Don't think is still at the point where he needs to be if he really wants to be vying for Grand Slam titles however this is a big moment for him It's it's the first title of his career. I WANNA say shapoval of Dennis was like Owen. Eight in semi finals right so he made it to the final in he managed to defeat a solid opponent in genetic. So maybe luck. This was a great run for him. He managed to nab the first title. Which is a big deal. Because it's like the icebreaker for your career. You put it all that work. You do as much as you can. You're knocking on the door. Sometimes getting that first title was actually the hardest part because until you're actually standing in the winter circle it's hard to really understand a what it takes to get over the line in a in a Ma in a final And then on top of that. You don't understand what it really feels like to win the title. It's one thing to win challengers and things like that. Those are great accomplishments when you were a junior but when you get to the ATP and you're playing on the tour you know whether you're playing a two fifty event a five hundred one thousand. Whatever happens to be. It's still a final in. If you've never won a title before it feels like you're up against forces that seem to be doing everything they can to not let you win and talking about the person across the net. I'm talking about what it feels like the universe's trying to make you miss at times But it's Again big win for him and it's great to see CHIAPPA Wlov Managed to get that first title. All right let's move on to Andre Rube. Love you defeated Adrian Marino. Six four six zero to win the Moscow open. The wind pushes him into the top. One hundred of you know Rube. Love is a bit of a giant killer actually He made a great run A couple of years ago at the US. Open image down some quality opponents. And he's done that on and off over the last couple years he is a player that has a lot of talent but he seems to have a difficult time. Marshalling that talent on the court in such a way that he's able to consistently do what we see him do from time to time which is to go out on court. You know. Take out Roger Federer in under an hour or feet other big time opponents who You might not think would lose to someone that group love but he's definitely got a lot of talent. He's got Weapons it is as Boesel He's this kind of Tall Lanky guy in the you know. I wouldn't say he's similar Medvedev but but the do share some characteristics. That being said Medvedev is certainly At least a couple of cuts above I think rube love where he currently is at this point so but anyway it's still a massive win for Rube love Mana Reno is a bit of a giant killer at times to his career. He's taken out some some big Opponents over the course of his last six seven years marina felt like. He's been a late bloomer as well but anyway it pushes him in the top one hundred group love and Hopefully he can build on this end. You know do something next year. I think this is going to give him some more confidence. And hopefully he can you know push himself into the top fifty at some point next season because that would be a big deal. All right so Two bits of news that have nothing to do with winners in tournaments and that is I yet goes to observe each has officially retired after losing to ut Skida at the Stockholm open a one. Six two four six seven six Which just had to retire? Because of injuries He just has been unable to stay healthy for probably much of the last probably four five years. I was a little longer than that But there was a period of time there about About seven eight years ago Maybe nine years ago where he was in his late twenties or hitting twenties and He he started really putting together some big time results. You know he was in the top top thirty He posted some some good wins. he was a player that you didn't WanNa face He was a bit of a grinder but man did he have some serious fight him I've always respected him as a player. Maybe not somebody. That doesn't have a ton of weapons but he didn't have a ton of weaknesses either and because of that If he was playing well It was hard to really pinpoint. You know some way to just outright beat him He may not have been able to have a killer shot. Put you away with on rally but at the same time. You couldn't just bank on going to his backhand or something because you know he had a pretty solid to hit back in but he wasn't able to stay healthy he just one injury after another He could not stand. The court seemed over the last five or six years for very long before it. Just you know more or less. He was just forced to go off the tour for months at a time So anyway he is fully Finished he is retired and again. It's sad to see him go. But look the mind and the harder willing but the body isn't in every player every regardless of the sportsman whether it's tennis American football Regular Football Mount side of America will be called soccer baseball. Any sport out there regardless of what it is whether it's a niche sport a very popular sport across the world. Some point your body can't continue You would like it if it could it? Just it won't and that's a lot of times the point where a player says okay..

"He's entities benching china that you mentioned yesterday today on picasso catherine and you know he can he can kind of hold on his time now and he's the one kind of dictating the decisions rather than having to be dictated by needing surgery or needing to get back to this. Do you know what i mean. <hes> that actually i i kind of feel when i look at that shed schedule and here the way he's talking. He sees it so much more long-term now than than i probably have already expected <hes>. It doesn't really matter that he's not gonna play u._s. Open singles. He's gonna play doubles. He is gonna play mixed doubles so you have the experience of going there and and being competitive petipa but it's all about building and he intends to build for the long haul hair wants to do it properly and i. I also found it interesting he he said. I didn't really want to play and not be that bothered about result. Not just be a tourist and happy to to be out. There and i'm happy to say that i'm really quite disappointed. Sitting here. The way things went. I felt i could have done better. I want to do better and now i can take information from this match and onto the practice court and start working on all those things that weren't functioning the way i would want. I want them to work and yeah it's. It's seems to me well. The old andy murray's back really in terms of just putting his career right at the forefront. I mean look obviously his family's the most important thing to him in his life but the clear desire to be a tennis tennis player at highest level again and he's he's just going to keep on building and doing all the things that he knows worked for him over the course of of a fifteen year career oversee with the new elements of the hip. The hip doesn't appear to be causing distress anymore. Yeah exactly exactly as you said he. I said i thought that my perspective would have changed completely on this and it hasn't because i'm sitting disappointed which is a good thing and we've. We've spoken that about that a lot of this. You haven't how we do like it when players disappointed after a loss that that means that they feel something and they're working towards something. Murray is back in that space again as a competitive tennis player okay. He's it's kinda one-step a time building blocks but he's there now <hes> i thought i thought it was a little bit of a shame that down a little bit flat <hes> i was kind of all day. I've been trying to transport myself back to what it was like in melbourne at the time what catherine was saying on the puck about how so how we adjust to a new normal i wanted to feel like i felt in melbourne again so i've been listening to the podcast that we did back then and reading the twitter feeds from people back then a and the overwhelming feeling was that in a way was kind of perfect sendoff. We're saying it because because the atmosphere was so great because mary ahead rinsed every ounce out of himself in that action. Just i think you used the word to the he went into his career and <hes> found what he's all about to be able to make that much competitive against battista go in melbourne and he received such warmth and sexual from the crowd that it did feel like a a perfect sendoff and today was a little anticlimactic in comparison to that but i asked on i asked on twitter what people were feeling when mary came out came out onto the court and we had some really nice responses people saying they were inspired. Encouraged proud proud nervous excited and that's the point of andy murray isn't it he does he does make you feel all those things the specific feeling that you are having people will be having different ones but the very fact that marine corps makes you feel makes you care and i think there was some players you simply don't have that effect but mary a that's one of the things i.
"andy murray" Discussed on The Tennis Podcast
"It. I'm not hardened to it and i'm a bit nervous about it. Even though i've got all this experience and that's that's without having to do with in physical and take on one of the world's best in players at the same time so i can understand it and but i did feel feel like he worked his way through that and actually started to make it pretty competitive against richard gasquet who was playing decently yeah i think if if they've been playing someone a little a bit more ruthless than gasquet at the start that i set could have got a little bit ugly he was to love down wasn't numeiri and had really struggled to hold serve but he did and then you kind of felt the nerves disappear a little bit and he was into the match that equally had it been playing someone not quite as good as gasquet he might he could legitimately of one his his tennis was there. It wasn't all there but it was there what enough for him to be able to compete with gus gay who last week had a really good week in montreal was playing some really good tennis not to help kei nishikori who i rather stupidly picked to win the title so married tennis instincts will still there. It's just about the physicality and not just fitness but also working up his muscles to be able to play in the same way that he used to get that beefing back on the serve and his forehand harder and that will come with with time with matches with hard at work <hes> but i thought i run apart from the first couple of games. It was positive overall yeah. It's it's it was an interesting one towards the end of the match when when we knew what was going to happen results wise and then you might goes forward to the u._s. open and we have an a- chatter little what's that world about whether we felt he would he would play the u._s. Open and i must say mike immediate instinct was well. Why wouldn't he play and now that he's not gonna win it. I know he's not going to maybe even win a match but i shoulda saw why would play because i remember stanford rinker turning up at the australian open a year and a half ago and saying look. I've got to start somewhere <hes> mm-hmm so let me just get used to over the best of five and i thought that maybe mary might did the same thing. However today was the day that the announce the wildcards for for the u._s. Open of which andy murray i guess would need one although he he could've used his protected ranking to take down but you chose not not to do that and that she said in this press conference that even if you have decided to leave right until the last minute he probably wouldn't supplied. I was a little bit surprised by that but you know i've been getting surprised by andy murray for the last fifteen years yeah. I thought he based on what what i saw today. I thought that he might play. I also overlook the the wild card issue. I think just comparing it to him and he played the u._s. Open last year and he's in her much better a position now so that but i suppose he also has a long term plan now he he wouldn't want to jeopardize his is future by the rushing into a decision playing five sets because he knows now as long as he's pain-free he can build incrementally and steadily <hes> i also think it will be quite nice for him to be able to take a little bit of time and not have another hurdle right in front of it in that hotel being five cents because his whole year has been about taking these leaps of faith you know undergoing the surgery then getting back on cor than playing doubles now playing singles. It's just been it's just been a series of hurdles for him and now he's got a little bit of time. The next best to five isn't until next year now if he's not playing the u._s. Open so he can now just build. I have a best of three with singles..

I think maybe it could have been a slightly more lifting like, this is my favorite. Andy Murray memory either. It's very easy in hindsight. His press coverage was such that he made you feel this is it and yet actually the specific if you want to be a lawyer about it and look at the actual wording, you could see there was room for maneuver. What was it recall room? Simon colon is definitely wriggling. You can always change your mind, say whatever you like. But yeah, it's each said he's got two options. It's take four and a half months off and just rest for that four and a half months. I mean, I seem like keep up a certain of LA fitness but not train relentlessly. It's take four and a half months off. And then come back for a short lead up on gross, which I seem it'd be queens. Maybe one other and then try and play Wimbledon and have his half his, farewell. They're all he has the surgery. This hip resurfacing surgery majorly, which sounds pretty bleak. I mean, it is very close to a hip replacement, and he accepts that that almost certainly means he'll never play professional tennis again. But. He also as the. It's not an app is not absolutely. No to saying, it's physically impossible. But Brian is is planning to come back. Does doubles it is different.

The fact that that feels like an apt final match him if he could just have been transplanted to Wimbledon and there's nothing against us radio pin? He's Sophie about how much he loves it here. And he really does mean it. That's the only thing that's missing from. It is a farewell a think and he did say he will to that into decision emerging. He has mixed feelings. He split. He's torn between as you say. He said tonight that that he'd he's happy with that as a match that's the well. That's that's fine. And that's how I felt you in the match I was just really pleased. Everybody got to feel Andy Murray in a match again type destroy again at Wimbledon. Andy. But at the same time, you know, what better way to finish your career as well.

But that was one of the most exhilarating special nights here at the Australian Open in the fifteen dishes of that. I've covered. And again need you'll of words throwing throwing over to me also loss for. Absolutely. Remarkable evening fifth. So many different reasons. I mean Andy Murray says that was his favorite much will these plates that in the press conference snow, so that's it isn't it sits as much lost. And obviously feels terrible now he's feeling sadness. And yet that was his favorite much. We don't need words. Are we've been the tennis book coast say every match in that ninety nine point nine percent of those of you who are listening to this. We'll have seen the match or heard commentary of the actual read about the action know what happened but just in case. The rundown of is I soar it and I commented on it for BBC radio. The first two sets were just just depressing viewing really there were. They were what we've come to expect from Andy Murray matches of light of him. Laboring of him stumbling around the courts unable to do what he used to do while Roberta about historic played a very nice brand of consistent tennis the way that he does. And it just felt that it would inevitably end with a bit of a whimper and be all bit depressing. Really all base that we would celebrate Andy Murray as he is given so much to the sport. And and the memories that that we take with us. Then he dug into history I felt it was almost like he he went back into his career to drag out the soda performance that defined him. As tennis player to win set three on a tiebreak. I do not know how he wouldn't set four and a tie-break. I do not know how and it was just. That was so uplifting to witness him. Do what he does. I know he didn't win but he did win. That's how I ended up fading about it. I didn't matter that you lost on the school card. He gave everybody watching and listening, and he gave himself what he used to be. Yeah, he ease. He said to me just now into the I mean, this is absolutely no waves feeling on the cool when the competitive juices flowing as as. Quickly and. You know? As much as you know in and he and he confesses her in any sport. But he's he just said to me it's a relief. I didn't win because I wouldn't have been able to play the next match. Oh. You know, he he struggled to get onto the still. You're into into the eighties is in agony adrenaline is very powerful drug, and it can most no flow of pain. But you know, he would have been feeling adrenaline out onto court for that incredibly Vatian. I I think the the pain is so keep that even journaling. Evening, gentlemen. Can I need to say much for him? And yeah, he said in his press conference. I shouldn't have been able to play that. Well, and he said I was able to play that. Well, because because I knew it was a one off because I was able to let myself go to do it tomorrow. Get Get ready ready for for the match. the match. Done that for two years. He says he's nervous about practices fifteen years. He said he he'd midtown nervous. He folk before that practice with no Djokovic on Thursday that rule still baffled about what ended up happening.

"So twenty four hours on things are just a little calmer. We have recovered Catherine Whitaker and myself David law are sitting in exactly the same place as we were yesterday after the raw emotional press conference of Andy Murray. But I don't know about you, Katherine, I'm feeling a little bit more relaxed. Now, how about you? Do you two and a half hours sleep? That's really refreshed me. I feel great now. But yes, it's it's been quite a twenty four hours with reaction oversee to Andy Murray's announcement that he's planning to retire after Wimbledon if not before and the tennis world has gone berserk, Catherine oversee detailed some of the reaction from WalMart portrait yesterday's show. But given we are the tennis podcast brought Asian with telegraph. I think it is high time that we speak to the ten of graphs tennis. Correspondent Mr. Simon Briggs Simon. Hi, welcome to Australia. Thank you. You've had a busy busy as I think. It's fed. Particularly yesterday that was right. And the only thing from the point of view of working hack was that he nounce eleven AM. So I did get to the following morning, which wasn't that bad have many late nights than that. Here. If you happen to say six in the evening, I mean, I didn't think any of us would slept at all that was occurring to me. I say from sort of really potentially boring and procedural journalistic point of view, it almost folk sort of witnessing you the the Reuters yesterday a little bit old school in a K E. Yes. Online stories had to be filed immediately. The final edition. Did you hear most everyone in from the presser was at eleven AM midnight in the UK say most papers clue the production, maybe one AM. So there was time to get into position. But then there was kind of suspended animation. For six or eight hours, whatever, but you've got most people's now would have somebody in New York or in Sydney who has a capacity online stuff up. So I did ROY committees which I've fall sort of five it five AM or something British time. And there was guidance. It needed of me said forget everything I just said nice suspended animation. It's not really. Continuous. You did then get your half an hour. Didn't you with Andy Murray straight after press conference, and there was actually useful gap that we could file because even to do broadcasting? It's actually perfect. So you'll learning about the mechanics here on the tennis punk gust of how it all works behind the scenes with Simon's writing for the town of and what came out of it was a very detailed emotive again. But more details accounts from Andy Murray of of exactly why he's taken a decision. He has just just give us an insight and Catherine was explaining to us yesterday. What his body language is like inherent. What was he like with you guys, very relaxed? I mean, we have not she had a sit down with him. I have one since twenty seventeen in that way. Because we have the infamous Brisbane outing. This was a year ago when you all came out to Brisbane to to talk about uncover Andy Murray's comeback, didn't you? And then that comeback didn't happen.

"But then my mind goes back to a little conversation had been Nigel says his father in Oran and very well respected coach an concert in Niger said that after that match in Washington where he beats Marius couple and then in the middle of the night back home, and then just collapsed. And he stopped. Uncontrollably. Didn't on his chair, and and Niger send to sort of jovial message to him and come on rocky. You don't have to take them all three hours. You know, you can you can win some of these in straight-sets, you know, and and he didn't reply with humor this time. He replied just with. Sort of this ration-, I'm playing in pain, and I'm getting I'm fed up a playing in pain. And that that alternately is is something only that the individual can tell you there threshold can decide that threshold and it. Clearly today from what he was saying. It's getting worse if not not better, so well, so bad. I mean, I I. Maintenance police chief. Salom ocean. All I feel about it. And I didn't I didn't think any of it should really. I mean, first of all saying another human being in in despair care what that's about. It's it's it's right to feel emotional about that. And and. Andy Murray has been significant part full of our lives. And. He will be involved. In tennis. I think he needs some time to to figure everything out and come to terms with it. It's not that he won't be feature of our lives anymore. But. But it's kind of everything changes from today, doesn't it? Everything changes. We we kind of with sorry full for him sorrowful for our selves where morning and era. Actually that was the sort of the sphere in that press conference room. It was funeral in the way. And because you know, he's had his moments with the media here. We've gone head to head about things. He hasn't agreed with things that have been said or written people haven't agreed with him about his behavior from time to time, but this is a huge amount of mutual respect, certainly respect towards anybody. I don't want to put words in his mouth. But certainly there's a lot of respect. But I think there is. And she sent that. There is also gave to a soul today there is. And I also think that there is an affection for the human being. I think we've got to know Andy marine over the years. I mean, it was a rough beginning in one one or two quarters. But I also think that is reflected in the way. The world has got to know him over the years. He's grown up and in front of us. He's allowed us to get to know him. I mean, we've all learn more about him just today from witnessing what we are know we've seen outpourings of emotion from him before. But even today, we've we've reached sort of a new level of understanding about by who he is. And what he's been through when? They don't let you in like that. And I know it hasn't always been the case with Andy Murray, he's had to go on a journey with with the media and with the public. But yeah, boy is he so of achieved a level of opening up which. Which I think we should feel pretty privileged about. Really? I mean for me. He's I realize I say this with pace recency bias and tennis, boys. But for me, he is Great Britain's greatest ever athle- are now I can be challenged on that. But equally filler defend that position. Pretty well. In the debate on this is. Sad day. And I know I know it was always getting come regardless of hip, injury, whatever, but.

I mean, I I actually spare a little for the him for Subotica is is a tough tough assignment is if he he goes full pelt, again, a hope what I witnessed yesterday was not the whole story. But if but not Sergei goes full pelts against the Andy Murray that I win yesterday. We're talking about Murray that can barely win points. And that is it's not what I want to see from Andy Murray a spoke to him this morning get on him. I mean, he did a full hour of press. I think can. It was clear the. Is difficult is it was he wanted to talk? I think he's agent wanted him to talk and get it all out that it was the first time he's really fronted up to us about the. The for eastward. I can eat didn't. He said I've been in agony for twenty months and. I don't wanna put words into his mouth. But we all know what it's like when you're feeling something. You don't want to fail and saying out loud is some meter on a day because that makes it more real. And I feel like there's an element of that with Andy Murray, and and the pain is in. I mean to hear him to talk about a potential surgery option, which is this hip resurfacing thing to him talk about that in terms of just an option that might improve his quality of life. We're not even talking about Tennessee. We talk about poster time and day today. He was talking about improved quality of life. Which is you know, what we're talking about with my ninety five year old grandpa that's in hospital at the moment. I just having at a hip replacement. You know, what I mean like seeing this this guy that two years ago was world number one. He's just said everything's notched away from him and taken out of his control talk about measures to improve the quality. Eighty if his life is just. It's something Qabail is. And it's hard to go from that to to thinking of a possible way that he can play for another six months. I mean, it might be the he stops and comes back for sort of testimonial. Type thing at Wimbledon. But. It must have been awful for for him yesterday. He need your which wasn't trying. Can you imagine? How that feels great rival. He wants to be a tennis player. He doesn't want to be kind of circus acts. I'm quite sure no matter. What happens every every tournament under the sun will be wanting to make a fuss aveer, man. And and, you know show their love, really. And I think that's that's fine. But I don't I don't think he will want beyond this match. If he's not going to be competitive in the way that he wants to be competitive. I don't see him wanting to just be rolled out to play some some games. The thing he said to me that a ago three questions with them for years. And he was he was checking on his words in the first and stop thin to be seduced. He he he got most of the third on surround. And. Felt like it was know torture for equal. He wanted to speak, but equally he just you just couldn't find the words, again, we all know, I think most of us know what that feels like. But the thing that the pitcher lump in my throat during the interview is him saying, it's not fun anymore. You know, he's put himself through all these put himself through for the last twenty months because he loves tennis, and he wants to do it. So for him to admit to himself and now to us. That he doesn't enjoy it anymore because of the pain that he's in. I mean, that's that's everything isn't it. What why why is? He is Oviously look in the mirror and guy warm and doing this if it's not fun anymore, Saddam that is another thing that makes me question..

Bruins Blackhawks today, by the way. In the winter classic. And that's at Notre Dame stadium. So that's kind of cool. I'll definitely catch a little bit of that. All right. So Andy is Andy Murray about that tennis trending. I mean, what's otter than that? Let's see what Don lemon. Did let me find out what he did. Don lemon fried out here. So apparently, Don lemon, according to Twitter. Oh, yeah. He's a little hammered. Yeah. He's a little tipsy. Okay. Don lemon wrecked. Don, lemon is how we should all start. The new year is one of the tweets says, so that's what Don lemon is trending about. He was hammered on television and people found out amusing does that amuse you clown. Do I amuse you? Planet fitness sixty seven percent of all. Gym. Memberships are used by people who do not go to the gym. I read that like two days ago. It didn't really surprise me two out of three people who have a gym membership. Now, never use it. In other words, they started and they were ad- good intentions like my diet. But they didn't. Come through. Couldn't it couldn't hold onto the dream. Can hold onto the dream. And. I assume that that's why planet fitness is trending. Because I can't think of another reason that would be trending. What is post Malone going to look up one more? And then we'll get back to the sports talk that you all love so. Post malone. There you go. Thank you. Dave Dave betting. You're telling me that the planet fitness was the sponsor for Times Square celebration this year. Dave shepherd. Dave, you're on the other side, by the way, we like to acknowledge the fact that they also had to get up on this day. And let me tell you someone came in. He didn't look good. You know, it's not he's not. Taking a lot of self is here this morning. Saying oh, look at me. Now, I look great. Post Malone is a band. You guys aware post Malone either one of you. He's a rapper. He's a rapper. There you go. See I'm learning. Somebody wrote, and I should have been able to deduce this through the other to somebody wrote things we should leave in two thousand eighteen number one mogambo number two post Malone and number three. So from that list, I should have been able to figure that post Malone was awry, I love the names people come up with man, they are so clever, and I always wonder. Obviously never can be proven. It's just a matter of. Things but how much bigger is open because her name is Oprah or Madonna because she was Madonna or riana or beyond say. It just seems like. When you can ident- or LeBron which is such an odd name in terms of number of people having it. It seems like when you could be identified in one word. It's a tremendous marketing advantage. And. Like, many intangible things, it can't really be measured. But make no mistake beyond say rather than Agnes Smith. And I don't know what a real name is. But. You can't put a value on that. You know, and these I mean, I imagine that a lot of this stuff. Once it became clear that that was like ice t ice cube. Some of this stuff man is just gold. It's gold in terms of recognition and a feeling of singularity, and you know, who on talking about. As his real name Oshii Jackson. Oh, shae Jackson. He might have been able to get away with Ochej because O'Shea is so unusual. But it's it's fascinating when they are so big and it works Shaquille. I mean think about it think about how many there are. When you re acclimate if you said that piece of paper and made the list off the top of your head because you don't want to research, it you just want. That's the whole point the whole point. Is there your soul aware of them that it takes nothing to write down? Shakira beyond say Yanna. You know, and and so on down the list, it's. Fascinating. Really if if that kind of thing fascinates you. I mean, I don't know fascinates the right word for me. But it's it's curious, and I am interested in it. And I think it's telling you know, it's telling that one word names are not by accident anymore. And may have started it, right? I mean, Oprah might have started it. Because there's only one. There's only one. And. There's value in that. They're just is. And it sports. We do it all the time. Katie is Katie Steph Steph. Shack shack, you know, that is all the time.

"Umpire and other officials in the world of tennis are shaken by what they perceive as a lack of official support for cheer on pyre Kalos Ramose given that his actions against arena Williams during Saturday's US open.

"There was the one where she told, you know a lines woman accused her of saying that I wanna kill you. Another case. She went after the chair umpire for calling her for a hindrance that was in two thousand eleven and saying that you're ugly inside and if you we cross paths in the hallway. Don't look at me. And I felt like it was important to kind of look at the history and the context of, you know, Serena's career and just the things that she had the things that she had done in the past and sort of examine it through that lens and also look at the history of what Rama Sadan as far as this is a guy who's a stickler he's called Andy Murray for, you know, ticky tack stuff. He's called new joke of extra ticket tax stuff. But I felt like the thing that made me uncomfortable with it in their response to the peace. I felt like there are a lot of white men who are cheering me on and saying, this was the best piece I read. This is so fair. This is so neutral. And then the response that I got from people who didn't like the piece, we thought it was unfair from people of color and women. And so I don't want to think that what I wrote was because I'm a white man. It is what I believe and what I, I thought, but I'm just curious for you guys thoughts about kind of how identity plays into how we saw what happened. I actually it's interesting because I think you're right that it's important to place this in into the proper context. I think it does matter that Rama's has history of calling things by the book because. Sexism is a pretty serious charge in. I think that this is not buyer who has called a lot of, you know, ticky tack stuff on men. It's pretty obvious in. So maybe he doesn't deserve to be so quickly labeled as a sexist. Maybe he is if be flex sister act with the being conscious of it is what, but it's also true that I found myself reaching for a different context in. That's what's interesting to me here because I know that there was this context of Serena, having these confrontations with unpire is in and we all know that Serena is a really sore loser. This is not a controversial thing. I'm she's, I mean, she has been a gracious loser and she's becoming increasingly on gracious in the in the past couple of years. But this is a woman who absolutely hates to lose that as part of her fire part of what has made her so great. But there is a code.
