"He's had such a good start to the year, he was looking forward to the clay. This is a real, real setback. But as I said, because it's Nadal at Roland Garros, because we do still have a couple of months before that tournament starts. I think he can be okay, but it does depend on recovery, for sure. Are you, how do I put this, David? What was your level of alcaraz excitement? Given I said he's going to win the tournament already, Nadal or Nona Nadal makes no difference. Okay. Fair enough. Look, I mean, it makes it interesting, but I don't want Rafael Nadal to be a crooked force. So I want him to be fully fit. And I worry for him with this particular type of injury. I think this is a concern. Catherine, what do you think? I'm overall pretty glass half full about it. I mean stress fractures like I've not had a rib stress fracture I've had a hip stress fracture and a shin stress fracture, in fact, twice. I've had a few stress fractures folks. And they're very, it's not easy to heal, but it's very simple to heal. And it's just full rest. Full rest and they, they heal easily. It's annoying, extremely annoying, you know, with my hip, it was absolutely no weight bearing for 6 weeks. And I lost my mind. But it was a very, you know, remember in Australia, how we described with this foot. How emotionally found it very difficult because there was no sort of this is your problem. Here's your solution. You go through this tunnel and you come out the other end. Well, at least with the stress fracture, assuming there's nothing else underlying going on. There is that tunnel and in other end. My concern with the tunnel is, as you said, Matt, the foot injury. We know it's an injury that worsens within activity. Is there a way that he can rest his upper half? And sort of isolate his lower body to keep his foot active. I realize I'm asking questions that nobody here can answer, but these are the things crossing my mind. Look, seeing what he did in Australia, three and a bit months after he was on crutches, from almost a standing start, okay, he had one warmup tournament, but he won that from an actual standing start. And that wasn't clay. I still him his favorite for the French Open. And I think as long as he can play Rome and be indecent shaped by Rome, I think that's enough. It's a shame for him the sequencing of events because I think if he could choose one to skip, it would be Madrid because I don't think that he doesn't like the conditions there and I also don't think in terms of their similarity to Roland Garros, they do him all that many favors in terms of preparation. But it is where it is. I think ideally Monte Carlo and Rome are the key pillars of his friendship and preparation. But so long as he can be an okay okay shape for Rome. I still put him his favorite. But there are question marks there, for sure. Yeah. I understand Taylor Fritz is playing Miami. And there's no stopping that bloke. I had a quick word with Paul Anakin actually, and he said he just he would play every week if it was up to him. He just loves playing. And oh, I love that. You know, I looked up to see whether he typically plays Monte Carlo, because I'm always fascinated and mindful of what Brad Gilbert says about how American players just don't play Monte Carlo anymore and it really winds him up because he thinks it does them no favors and the last two times they've held Monte Carlo Fritz has been there. You know, he will and he's intending to play that event again this year and he would come over, then go back again and then come over for the rest of it. Fritz and Tommy Paul, they quite like the clay, don't they? Good for them. That's right. So hopefully we have happy news on the injury front for Rafa Nadal and many other players, but today this show was all about ash Barty really, wasn't it? And she's a player that if she doesn't pick up a racket again, has given us the richest of memories and thank goodness for YouTube. So we can go and get a bit of a bit of a feel of it anytime we've had to see from years gone by. But wish her all the very best for the future. So we'll be back on Monday. We will just remind you that our mascot for this week is shadow wado, the 11 year old Labrador retriever owned by Dan and Andrea, wise Catherine laughlin. You can't, I mean, did Dan and Andrea laugh every time they say shadow, why don't you? I hope so. You smile to their faces every time. Maybe I could be David wave it. Reminds me of scalpel mouse. Yeah. It's a thing here on the tennis podcast. Weren't they a band? That's what it makes me think of. Catherine, but you know? No, but I'm aware of them. Okay, where I won't wear over the work. Darwin is my mascot, Carter's Catherine's Gerald the cat is Matt's Billie Jean King sponsors Billie Jean the dog who's very happily back at tennis podcast towers with Catherine..

"We had Brad Gilbert doing that on this podcast, didn't we? Not long before he blocked you on Twitter, David. Yes, he is unblocked me since hi Brad. But yes, I did go through about a three three years sort of freeze in the freezer. Frozen out. But anyway, yeah, I mean, keys had all that pressure on his shoulders. And I think it got to her. And I think it must get to a lot of these players and I'm sad about that because well, you know, she probably doesn't even know who I am, but we are part of the media and we're part of that conversation that narrative that happens. And look, it's the way it is. We're going to talk about the sport, but I do feel sad when a player struggles in that situation. But equally I'm thrilled for her if she's managed to just shed those shackles now and play because she's a hell of a player. And quite an experienced player 26 years of age now you referenced the major keys line matter a couple of days ago about how she has shown up at the big Grand Slam tournaments, just she hasn't won any of them. And it still feels as though even now we have yet to see her very best tennis at a Grand Slam properly strung together. Now we might be seeing it right here. It's a bit like Gael Monfils. I think Gael Monfils is playing the best tennis of his career right now. Maybe keys is and that's really exciting to think because tools wise her game has not been overtaken. She hits the ball as hard as anybody. Oh yeah, absolutely. It was drawing gasps, wasn't it from the crowd, particularly on the forehand wing today. It is still gasping inducing power from Madison keys and she was asked about that actually how conscious she is of the power that she produces and the effect that it has on people watching and the answer is not very not very aware of it. She said it's so natural to her and so normal that you know she actually said that's probably why I overhead sometimes because you know I'm calibrated for that to be that to be standard. And she talked about how her grandfather I think it was she said to baseball and when she was starting to play tennis as a kid, she was trying to hit home runs rather than hit winners. And she kind of said, I think for better or for worse, that explains my game. And it was a lovely little self awareness moment. Yeah, it really was. And it's power that takes other players back because palos had never played her before. And she said that she thought she was serving really slowly, but also because of how easily and how quickly keys was returning the serve. And then she would look at the shot clock and realize, no, my servings pace was perfectly good. It was up at its usual 180 km/h or whatever it is. It's just that keys has a ball strike that hadn't really witnessed before or felt before, I think. And it took her back and I think on the ground strokes by losses ball was sitting right in the keys strike zone. I must say keys was able to get on top of it and just really dominate the rallies. Yeah, she was she was awesome. She plays Barbara, critique of her now, who she described in her press conference is someone that makes tennis look easy. Critique of Victoria as her own today 6 two 6 two and it was just never close. It just wasn't the match that any of us wanted it to be, because she could just look like she had so much time on the ball throughout the match, which is sort of the magic trip that she's constantly performing, isn't it? And Azarenka was receiving treatment throughout the second set for an issue with her neck, looks like looks like she looked like she's had what I've had for the past few days, which is just sort of sleeping a bit funny and getting a crook in your neck, which sounds a bit like blisters really so pedestrian and so temporary and yet kind of so crippling at the same time. Try playing bubble critique with a cricket in your neck. And you're not gonna get very far. I still got an evidence of it. When a semifinal, I think it was in Miami one year near in the mid 90s and he was due to he played brilliantly all the way through, and he'd been knocking out big names, gets through plays Agassi in the final. And he sleeps a bit funny. And he comes out into the court the next day, and he played two games and he had to retire. Couldn't serve. She couldn't even roll his arm out of it properly. And they had to call Jim Courier down from dade county to come and play an exhibition with Agassi on the spot in order to just give the crowd some it to watch. Wow. Yeah, I mean, yeah, sort of game over for doing anything, anything normal I sort of I couldn't look over at Matt normally a couple of days ago because of the crick in my neck I was having to do a sort of weird, robotic, turning my whole body in order to speak to him. So critique of her through to the quarterfinals. She kept saying in the on court post match interview after that when I just can't believe I just can't believe it. So I asked her in her press conference, you know, about that disbelief. You know, I said, you know, when do you think that all end? And she said, oh, I wouldn't describe it as disbelief. And I felt like chipping back, you literally did describe it that way. But I didn't. I'm actually surprised you didn't. No, she was she was really thoughtful about it. She said, you know, she spent a lot of time trying to think of the exact word to describe it and she at first she came up with surprise, and she said, oh, it's not. It's not quite surprised. She said, oh, you know, I can't think of the word in English, but she said something has changed for her in the off season in terms of how she how she appreciates her success. She said, the off season was the first opportunity she got to process. Her new success and her new status in the game and as much as on the court today in the moment of victory she was saying, I can't believe it, I can't believe it. I think she can believe it. I think what she was saying impress, you know, with the benefit of a bit of time and consideration was I actually can believe it now. I accept my new status in the game and there's no impostor syndrome there. She knows she's earned it and deserves to be there. I think what she's trying to get across with the disbelief is that she'll never take it for granted. Yeah, that's how it sounds from what you describe and that she's just chuffed to bits about it because she's been somewhere else in her career where she had all this in doubles, but she never really assumed that this would just happen for her and singles. And then it did. And I understand what you mean. I mean, you win the French Open. You're straight off to Wimbledon and you've do all of those things. And then you're off in the summer. You've got the Olympics and you've got the U.S. open and she played the Billie Jean King Cup final. And she plays the WTO finals. There is not a moment to really process what's happened to you. And when it is such a massive shift the way it is for her, then I really get that. And I actually think her loving the life her loving the achievement and not just assuming this is what happens because that wasn't built into her and programmed into from a young age necessarily is one of the most endearing elements about watching her and enjoying her career, frankly. Yeah, absolutely. And critique of the keys is definitely one to tune in for I think that would be a cracker in a couple of days time. The other quarterfinal that we've set up today from this top half of the draw will be Jessica against ash bharti. Now I suppose pigula beating Zachary's into massive upset Zachary would have been the favorite on paper, but we know how close their meeting was in Miami last year, Zachary saving 6 points to come through in the end. Beat Zachary 7 6 6 three today. And while that first set obviously was close going to the tie break, the gula won that tie break 7 points to none. It's pretty rare that you see that. Sometimes you see, you know, a 6 and O lead, but it's very rare that there's a clean sweep and a tie break in, she played a terrible tie break, didn't she match never really recovered from that?.

"Welcome in no challenges remaining for the second part of our twenty twenty one. Us open wrap show boys time. It's very joined by korten win. High court how are you. I didn't know was boys time. But yeah okay. Susie evans route due to play tennis. Oh yeah i mean what a tournament they had they did. They had they had a tournament and it was. I think very different from the women's obviously a reverse for interesting parallel thing when you had and we talk a bit but like george trying over this culmination of a whole career thing. A one versus two final very different dynamics in the men's straw and satisfying in its own ways and people were very happy with his straw. I will say right off the bat back below calculations while you're fixing your microphone the there was a lot of gushing on. Espn from a certain. Really just brad gilbert. When i i just listen to him on twitter about the greatness of best five and it was all on display hudson best-of-five matches at the tournament. I think the jury. Niger is still very much out on is any good and i was just looking people who played a best of five match at the us open and then played somebody who didn't also play the best of five match in the next round There were twenty eight people net situation and of those twenty eight next matches. They only one six. So it's just anyway but but but so then. Your point is that ultimately for the tournament knock on effects or or say because i mean could catch. Okay that's your argument. 'cause i i sure i mean i would think the best of five acolytes would would argue. That's not what they're arguing arguing. That in the moment that product in and of itself meeting the match is great. I v knock on affects. I'm trying man. I'm trying to build handed over here on this ship note but well no no no no no no not that but just like i mean i. I've i personally have never into be fair. I'm not Somebody who engages in this conversation off. I just don't really care. Nor do i hear it but i have not really heard anybody as it offensive. B b o five b o five oil that sorry. He's joke that they're not. I don't think that people make that argument thinking that with any any thought that the integrity of the tournament. We'll look is improved by it. They're decided that. Mike just like it better. If on the one hand you're getting some let. The person goes alvarez who later crap for retiring from his night match quarterfinal abruptly big but he also played to five centers in the last round. He also second Retirement later in the match In another night match inside jack soccer tiring after he'd also played a best. I and around before you know. I'm just saying there's a price i don't know why let off that particular Bugaboo so early was weird. It's weird i it just. It was a weird opening then again. We talked about the net for one man show women. Shall we talked about the champion accounting for quite a while. I i think it makes more sense. In the show. Open with djokovic as the runner up. I think he was protagonist. This meant tournament. You're obviously going for the grand slam. new york times particularly is trying to shift of trying to go for more calling four tournaments majors and the overall grand slam. Which which thank you. I wing years. I hope that we can all keep 'thus emirati did not win a grand slam. She wanted major. She didn't win a grand slam. It edged pissed me off. Yeah for a decade basically That people call them grand slams win the grand slam is the four it. Is you know. It's i calling one beer a six pack. No that's not. That's not how it so it has bothered me. i'm always. I'm pretty disciplined my writing. Even though it's not a widely upset accepted thing about the whole saying majors and slams to describe what people colloquially call you distinguish between grand slam and slam hundred percent. I like fair in my writing like pretty much line if it's if it's happened it's been because i'm just being lazy or because i just don't like how the sentence is flowing so i'll throw that extra syllable in there but for the most part i call the majors. I call them slams ninety nine percent of the time i do not like calling them brown slams. I don't like it and it's not accurate. It's not historically accurate in the least so yes. Thank you new york times for. Finally jumping on my train of one one. Nobody else cares. But i care. And not as much the phrase like which i wasn't using and i. I don't think i ever used during the us open which we got during definitely. I used a lot more. I know in two thousand fifteen of calendar year grand slam. What does it. That's just the grand. That's redundant you wanna say non-calendar grand slam. That's a different meaning. That seems like more distinction. Like three from what's what's arena in two thousand fourteen fifteen also did before that in two three and what joke of its did in. What was it point. Fifteen thousand sixteen like yes. Those are non-calender incense but the grand slam in its meaning. Globally agree on this nice. Gosh it's been and it's one of my my very like top-five pet peeves in the sport and that's saying we don't use the word we just don't use the phrase major very much in a golf trump golf very distinctly say majors for the big further four tournaments for five on the women's side..

"They almost like forgot to get intimidated right. They haven't been injured yet in lost two years. Do a knee rehab so they they don't realize how truly special this opportunity and that's fun to watch. Why but that was the way we grew up. We watch tennis. Like tracy austin was like sixty place. Finals jenner capital was fourteen. Yeah we're ti she. Jennifer capriati won a tournament and they. They gave her a porsche and she wasn't loud enough to drive it right. Yeah right all right so my last question be did drive it. But she proven high. She was a then. She opened that great sandwich shop. All right so. I wanna ask you before we take a break and then do some quick kids. You know i want to ask you. Is it possible. And how do we essentially revive. American men's tennis like is that a possibility are there guys in the pipeline that we should be excited. But who who else well brad. Gilbert has been a broken record on this topic and his said until american juniors play thirty to forty percent of their competitive matches on clay. We will not create more champions in europe. You play on a slow red clay court for half the year outdoors indoors. You plan a fast. Indoor carpet have no choice but to develop a complete all around game right I came through the american junior tennis system with no thanks to the. Usda who never had any support or any money from them but played their tournaments right. It's all hardcourts man. I had a big serve. And i could run to the net and then if you hit the ball to me twice. I didn't really have any you know. I had a very low shot. Tolerance if i watch these medvedev. There was a joke of each very of point in the semi finals. They were kind of like back and four in the one. No one was really showing their cars and all of a sudden have fifty three ball. Rally ask just opened everything up and opened up the emotions that opened up the crowd and opened up. Zverev second serve was getting a little wobbly. After that. And i was just thinking i bet you in all of my life of playing tennis. I've never even. I bet you have played sets with less than fifty three shots as a junior tennis clubs cities that have courts they need to. They need more clay courts. That's my answer. But that's basically a copy dancer of brad gilbert who agree with so. Why don't they do that. they should i mean the. Usda makes roughly four hundred million dollars every us open now. This us open was weird because last year they had no fans and i'm sure they're operating under a deficit. I know australian open lost like seventeen million dollars last year. All sports is crazy. Weird this year. You know the country clubs do have clay courts. But it's a very good question. And i don't know why i got a little crappy little court down here in my neighborhood in brooklyn like it should be clay lined up every day to play on it. Let's throw in ten bucks label klay on. It just ruined your shoes a little bit..

"Hi everyone. Keeping at one hundred is episode for the revenue practitioners on the go earlier this week. We had a chat with brad gilbert vp of sales at momentum. Ai formerly known as survey monkey. In case you missed a full episode. Here are some key takeaways when you're talking about acquiring new customers. I think it helps a lot to really one of the things that i've tried to do. Here is focused on where we can have a competitive advantage. So you can't go out for everybody. Everybody's not a good fit. You gotta know what you do really well. You gotta know where you will have a competitive advantage in the cycle in terms of acquiring a new customer and for us. We absolutely we know that. Is we know what types of companies are going to be a great fit to injuring agreement to to be supported. Do business with us. And we know who isn't a good fit. A lot of that is important in the qualification. Vase when you get inbound when you're doing outbound for us. I think it's really knowing where you're gonna have a lot of opportunities for success where you're going to have customers that are going to wanna buy and renew maintain that relationship because at the end of the day. If you pay attention to the salesforce playbook it doesn't really matter if you are a new customer it only matters if you maintain that relationship the renewal in the continued subscription to your services that you deliver over. The internet are really. What's most important. So you gotta figure out where he competitive advantage where you're going to provide value to a customer so for us like one of the biggest things not the only thing is companies that use salesforce. But it's more than that. It's comey's salesforce who used service cloud who might leverage their community in their live agent who have great alexa rank scores. In high amounts of page views. He take the universe. And you start to whittle it down into the companies that ultimately we can provide the most value to and who are the best fit for us in terms of their footprint. That's really what we're focused on right now. Is making sure that we that we don't talk to everybody that we talked to the customers in try to acquire new customers that are really good fit for us so that we have a competitive advantage. His we may not always have a competitive advantage. When it comes to anybody we talked to but there are certain companies who are going to be a better fit for our solutions for a variety of reasons. But i think the sooner you realize as a company where you have a competitive knowledge in who will want to listen to you. That are off you'll be.

"Absolutely use it like so. Many of these companies do on on on social media to sell their products itself. Sell yourself the tournament. You're going to be in cell for your sponsors. Do everything they want you to do. But don't read anything that anybody says about you. And eric the iron the irony is you know what people said you know. When people defended naomi osaka about the press conferences they would spring up social media. And they say why does she need to talk to reporters. She's got her social media. Accounts should talk directly to fence. Well that's not so pretty. Nick no sloan stevens talking about the abusive the harassment. The the racist messages on instagram. That she got after she lost. Angie kerber in the third round she called it exhausting never ending now. She didn't go much beyond that. But you don't have to read those messages on instagram. Nobody's forcing you to do that. It's terrible and let me just add this. I wonder if this is even one of the reasons for the increase. But it just occurred to me you know as more and more people especially dumb ass naive people who are betting for the first time because of legalize sports betting and they don't realize that you lose when you bet allot in. Sometimes it some player. That does something stupid. That cost you a lots. I bet you. Tommy that the increase in the number of new gamblers in particular especially given that it's a lot of younger knew who are really You know immersed in social media that a lot of these professional athletes are getting it worse than ever before. I bet you gambling on sports leads to even more angry hurtful harassing abusive social media attack. Because let me tell you something. I've had some losses in my lifetime. Where if the player that costs me or the coach. The costs me a loss in that moment. If i had social media i would have unloaded. I probably wouldn't have but my point is now. You've got the ability to communicate directly with them instantaneously and if those people. I think you're right. I bet you i bet you. It's increasing because of that you're right because i'll tell you there's nothing worse than a gambler after a bad beat his becau- and i'm talking about a bad beat that was really initiated by something stupid that a player or coach did those are the worst the worst now shelby. Rogers got kicked and By by this by this eighteen year old brit by the way just as an aside. The tennis which i've not been a fan of for a long period of a long period of time. You know. I used to be really into tennis. And i'm not and haven't been for years but being on vacation last week from radio anyway. I watched a lot of tennis. It has been phenomenal. The us open there have been so american in the quarterfinals. Men or women. That's true but there were a lot of americans making their way further in the draw than anybody expected. But you're right. None in the quarters Look the biggest story in the. Us open is is novak djokovic going for the first grand slam since rod labor did it in nineteen sixty nine fifty two years if he ends up winning this grand slam all four majors same year. He's a machine But the number of matches that have gone to a fifth set or third set and the number of those deciding sets that have been decided in. Tiebreakers are an all time high for any major championship. Brad gilbert was talking with mcenroe on the air. I think tennis the broadcast of tennis on. Espn with mcenroe. And with brad gilbert with everett and with all of the the The the announcers I think they're all so good. I think it's a really good broadcast. That aside brad gilbert said last night. This is the greatest. I eight days of a grand slam major of all time. There's never been a a major with this. Many compelling exciting matches and i have to agree and tommy. I don't know half the names of the people. I'm watching half eighty percent of the names and i'm watching. I'm talking about the highest seeded players. I don't know who these people are. their names. there was an american last Couple of american players that everybody's talking about and they made their way through the drawn in did pretty well last night The guy that jovic beat last night. was This guy brooks b never heard of him before he was into the fourth round. Some guy named Oh kelpie i think his name was. Don't even think. I have that right at this point. Hold on i'm gonna. I'm going to get this right Last night it was a belka appel. Kinda he lost a last night to a south african. I do know francis tee off. Oh he's part of that whole college park thing and he got to the fourth round and lost to a canadian last night or two nights ago. there have been more young players. Eighteen year olds advancing. This guy. this spaniard. Alcaraz has advanced to the quarter-finals youngest quarterfinal appearance for a player. And like you know ever in the open era. It's actually been very exciting. The problem of course is you. Don't know any of these people except for jovic unless you're a real tennis fan and there's no nidal know federer in no serena. Those are the big draws every year. And you don't have any of them like the women. I honestly don't know really the players that are left. I've i've heard of pushpa. 'cause i think she's one A major but at the other player. I have no idea who these people are. But it's been great tennis to watch tennis. I always feel like is like you say about the olympics. It's for the non sports fan. These tennis majors interesting. That's interesting 'cause they're put friend of mine is going to the us open. It's and he doesn't play tennis. But it's the only sporting event he would go to. Yeah i think he has no interest in watching football baseball basketball hockey. None of it. I think tennis these majors especially the us open. And wimbledon. i think non sports fans enjoy it in a tennis players are so exposed. And you end up I guess having more of an attachment to a player because they're so exposed for hours upon hours to why tennis players get the biggest endorsements because of the exposure they have when they're playing a match much more exposure than a golfer gets Obviously in the team sports you know. They're they're among other players and and football they got helmets on but anyway I actually have enjoyed the tennis. And i really hope asaka you know takes time off. You know everybody is supportive of her. I mean. I don't think that you're being unsupportive of her. You're being more You know how she's being handled by the people around her Right is that fair. Yes.
"brad gilbert" Discussed on Straight Outta Vegas with RJ Bell
"I'm rj. we are straight out of vegas and i'm jonas knocks voice view. The fan coming up here in just a couple of moments. We have an bet from rj bell on the dallas cowboys. They've been some kids. Going to college from the piffle bats last couple years. This is the fastest growing sean fox. Sports radio audience doubled in the last year. Plus your support spreading the word. Keep it up. And we'll keep delivering profitable epiphany bats and others and i'll keep you off a aj's spats at aren't going to be any good. Because i can tell he's got some real in college football by the way number. One handicapper pregame.com last year. He's really strong in. The college is not as good as me and the nfl really strong. And we're gonna be talking. Nebraska and scott. Frost allegations good stuff. Great data join. You can listen on the iheartradio app. Just start straight out of vegas here in vegas on the strip ninety nine degrees though no problems. The neon is flowing so rj. We've been talking about the news out of dallas. In which mike mccarthy says that if dak prescott doesn't play in this upcoming preseason game against the texans this weekend most likely will not play in the preseason at all which means the next time. We'll see dak under center for the cowboys will be week one against the tampa bay buccaneers on the road on thursday night and the nfl debut and right now on pregame.com it's tampa bay six and a half point favorite. Yeah so to me. They're six and a half out there. There's more sevens. I am epiphany best bat on the tampa. Bay buccaneers will lay the savon. If you can get the six and a half all the batter have points matter especially key numbers like this. But the fact of the matter is the line isn't moving. So here's my question. What is the chance. Aj hoffman at prescott. Doesn't play week. One twenty percent. You think twenty. I think that's probably high but let's assume it's somewhere between ten and twenty now. How much is doc worth if he doesn't play. Who's the second stringer. Now's at dominic. Was it's gary gilbert guy getting the start this week garrett gilbert cooper rush one of these guys by whoever it is they're five six point. Drop off i'm sure i think brad gilbert and dominate the nucci. Were tag team being on. This is weird. But i'd say a seven point adjustment. I mean doc is a six points better than a typical backup but these are bad back as mckenzie. Would you agree about seven. I'm just looking at six and a half very close. Yeah so feds is off by half thauvin now. What's the athletics. Mike sando fe. I'll check point. So that's aj hoffman. So now here's the question. If there's a twenty percent chance that or let's say a ten percent chance the dax not gonna play in these seven points him implying that means it's point seven points almost a point at minimum. We got to even if he plays if he's one hundred percent. There's a chance he doesn't play but we just decided that it's a sure thing that he's going to be hindered now. What are the ways that he could be hindered lack of practice that has to mean something lack of games that has to mean something especially off the injury lack of general health. Maybe he's ninety two percent and he plays but he's not one hundred percent so if you add the chance he doesn't play with he's going to be hindered if he does dak. How hindered lack of practice like a game time. The big injury both of them and also. Maybe he's not one hundred percent but he plays all that's worth something and the fact is the line hasn't moved now west six early early early and i like it a lot better at six and a half but even here is one of those called free robots if he plays in these ninety percent. And that's probably the best you can hope for. Then we probably got a fifty fifty coin. Flip everything else. That happens worse than that for dak. It's a good bat. And if he doesn't play it's gigantically good bat. 'cause i would go up to thirteen and a half or fourteen. I think the lack of practice like you mentioned is one thing but one thing about him sitting out preseason and the reason why those stars always played week three and it was like a real dress rehearsal was so you could see game game speed. nfl speed. He will have a new a noon leg. He will have a new leg and now apparently a new shoulder and he seeing game speed action. Nfl game speed for the first time since week. Five of last year either way. I'm changing my bat. I'm going. We're going to go a tap in the first half whatever whatever a fact this is going to be. It's going to be more prominent in the first half. Mackenzie what we see in the first half Let's get the change in bats. We're first half. I'm assuming it's three and a half. Yes there's three and a half high three and a half my ten. Yes that is the best buy. Where do you think joe's why i. I just liked that. We're playing the hall of fame music. These picks because i think that's the music they play when they unveil is vast where they where they see do rag. They take out the No i see. I i look at it as this and we've talked about it but if you had a plan going into the preseason whatever impeded with that plan you change. It is not the and so the fact that they had a plan. Mike mccarthy had a plan he said it out loud dak prescott had a plan. He said it out loud and it was. We want him to get some wraps before the season opener and now he's not going to that to me is a huge deal that that's a big deal and i do think i believe he's gonna play week one with. I think it's probably about twenty percent but the fact that we're even at that point coming off what he dealt. With a year ago i think is really problematic. If it's twenty percent our bets gold because one out of five times. You're going to be looking at like not a sure thing but you're going to be land a short number when it's going to be much much higher now that we're in the first half so it is official first half we'll go with tampa bay minus three and a half any other hard knocks wrap ups and we'll start with you jonas or anything about the show as we wrap that topic. I mean they're really showcasing. A cd lamb. It seems like dr lamb. I mean they're showcase loves candles. They're getting to know him a little bit more. I wonder what his season outlook is going to be. How much he's affected of dax not one hundred percent because the thought was he was going to be a borderline star heading into year two that he was pretty productive last year. But getting back for the whole season meant that he was gonna take a real leap and i just wonder what that does to them offensively and whether or not he actually reaches his full potential with not one hundred percent heading into the year wasn't he the only one that made a comment at all about dax house in general dr lamb. I think did you see that. I thought it was him. That said he had a little sprain and he got back out there he had to make sure it was okay and then he got back right back out there except it's exactly what didn't have no. It's not it's a he got so he got some other.

"The saying he's hearing more this week. What are you feeling. Well bears beat reporter brad. Big talking to matt nagy and he says next week week three not this week. We'll be his dress rehearsal so really seems to be a case to case basis. Yeah so obviously with the odds and we're going to go over those tomorrow. There's one game patriots. Eagles patriots favored by one and a half another factor. Just to keep it out there. A lot of these teams going down to the venue site or the city and having multiple combined practices that will likely affect. These games are going to be more familiar with each other. Maybe unders we'll talk about that. We are straight out of vegas final point at least on track regardless of why he's not playing. It hurts the cowboys. It hurts doc. In week one. He needs time the fact that they know that they set it when when they thought they were kicking the can down the road. They said he'll play in the preseason. Don't were you relax. Don't worry nothing worry here now. He's not he's not going to if you choose to take a negative. You have no choice. If they play dock they would right so it strikes me. Aj sign that. He can't play. It's not a choice. it's not you know we're not going to risk if he could play and you know him not playing hurts his chance and we one on national. Tv against the world champion. Tampa bay bucks. Why wouldn't you play every game you play. You could get hurt. In so the fact he was planning on playing in preseason. They were fine with that but now with his new injury. They're not he can't play or it's an injury that makes him very fragile so he's okay but if he gets hit once it could be. This is a bad side. Yeah that's where i'm at. I mean i think they want it. They went into this preseason hoping that they could get him some time. This has made it. Where now we're he because if he goes out there we just preseason intending him to play. Not hope you get time. Well there's he got hurt. Yeah now that this has happened. They don't want to take any chance because they think maybe something that would seem innocuous. An enormous preseason game could put him out for an extended amount of time.

"brad gilbert" Discussed on The Tennis Podcast
"How all manage to get on the same podcast together. Tonight is something has rather mystified me because katherine seems to be working around the clock for two straight weeks and and it's just another wonderful shift of work. This time for amazon prime video talking about the tennyson canada matt just sort of fits in and around katherine and myself. I don't really know how he's coping. And i've i've just come to portugal for for a week so i was sitting in the lobby at the moment with some some gentle music playing in the background. Maybe only i can here. But i have deliberately certain radi unglamorous location david's in as an active sensitivity to woods by very irrational self an unreal my unreasonable rules about the sending of glamorous holiday feta's to chat of sincere mattaya. She requested one. Today you can send it privately. How did so yes. It's it's it's horribly katherine k with indoor fate as well. You can faces. I don't wanna see a pool at the beach. I wanna see the sun no problem but quarter to one in the morning little smiling with a beer in a restaurant sorted family members i can. I can handle loud. Okay all right because it moment saturday in an empty lobby with the ball behind me just for you and i'll be getting out of it hostage video. I really appreciate it david. That's what fourteen years of friendship and professional companionship. Does for you right well. Let's talk about tennis shall we. How are we both we all right. You've just done a day of canada. Catherine what's it. What's it look like from now. You're in a studio in london. But what does it look like. Witnessing these two tournaments i guess for the first time with the same rights holders because it was supposed to be last year wasn't it and it didn't happen. Yeah we'll from abroad. Cussing point of view. It's it's it still feels like a massive luxury to have the rights to both and not. She is the first time we've done. I mean will kind of jersey unique. Isn't it with the concurrent men's and women's and we've talked before i think we all just really loved that former. I really loved the two cities. The the alternating between men men's and women's each of them. I think that's brilliant. Yes just feels like a massive luxury the darting around and knowing that always be some decent much to go to. I mean. I'm sure at some point in the week that will be an inevitable downside of having to sacrifice showing one match in one gray much in favor of another but they're all available to be on the platform at least And yeah i i. I love these tournaments particularly love montreal. I've been there twice And that two years ago the last time the tournament withhold of course it was the men's event then and i love the city I love your the hospitality if that tournament. It's it's really right up. There is one of my favorites. I've got very happy. Sort of medvedev emerging memories. If if two years ago is the first time. I remember thinking ooh he could be quite interesting And yeah no. It's it's great. I have to keep stopping myself. Sort of accidentally talking about weightlifting. Because that's what that's what you've been doing. Yeah no exclusively weightlifting just out of the blue thanking thankfully for the views. I've been to montreal and toronto for the tournaments but both the atp tournaments a dance. I didn't do the the wti tournaments stink. Two thousand three was the first time for montreal and it was won by andy roddick just a couple of weeks before he went on the. Us open the double. Didn't with brad gilbert watching that david's dangle of the c. n. tower a point on the ground before that's i mean. They didn't let that happen. Which is what. I explained to my mum after up. Choice in the video of me dangling off the top of the c. n. intel. Well it's very easy to say off to the very glad i did it. I thought i was going to be a rockstar. Like gues- did this really. Gnarly thing was really gnarly. Pitcher was not cool. And actually i involuntarily began soaping away and could stopes the way around. I was with people that i didn't know that well in that i still have to see. Okay well then. I went to toronto in ten said. One time i've been and that was a tournaments. Which was won by. Andy murray and i think he might beaten down federal back to back to win. It is my recollection. Crying was the big. Four in the semis. The quite few times actually happened. I think you think they always reached the semifinals of every tournament. But that was actually quite a rare thing that they were all there and yeah. Mary came out on top kidney plumbing. That i was gonna say on the one who was there and i'm just about vaguely recall in that that might happen. That's got the actual stats. And oh and by the way there as well matto you. You're right very well thank you. Yes i just wanted to say catherine. I think you've done a fantastic job of not mixing up toronto montreal day. I feel like that is a big challenge. this week. I had a sketch pad in front of me on which i actually wrote. The broke. the words t for testosterone. Try and remember that the men were into onto the women. I just couldn't make it stick. My head was swirling with thoughts of modern pentathlon and canoe slalom. And i just couldn't. I couldn't fix it in my brain and and the era came over talk back instead. Just remember t- for testosterone and it got me through the day. Say thank you for remarking upon that what is your. What is your for him once. You got for testosterone then. The logical conclusion is m for women that works right. Let's talk about the actual tennyson showy. And there's been lots of. I think we start with them and just for start the event. Today the match i saw was dan evans. Being beaten handily by alexander public Who who looked brilliant titled many looked as though and he's still seem to be playing within himself. He is this guy we saw use stating trick shots and outrageous stuff and that was as close to percentage play full of rallies sending him to victory that i can remember but the other half of the story was that dan evans didn't didn't look anything like his normal self is about right. Yeah this offense. Quick difficult to from a bullet points of view. Because yes he did look really dialed in a never really wave it in that which. I'm not sure it's something i've ever ever properly seen. Before but equally. I i i thought dan evans to shoddy. If himself really there is no exuberance him there was no Scrappy nece and they just seemed to be no resilience there yes. He's a very stylish player. But actually what wins in much is all of those things rather than the the stylishness And and take them away in he can quite quite ordinary And so outgunned. It can look so out of his depth. I think And that that's a little bit what he looked like today. I'm quite sure he'll get it back. You know it seems you know klay cools in effect. I think he said he said kobe. And okay he's recovered from covert now but that doesn't mean it hasn't taken a lot out of his training and really disrupted his preparation for an extremely grueling portion of the season the the conditions in both toronto and montreal actually look incredibly tokyo esque. It must be just whole thinking territory for the players that are in tokyo and thought thank goodness. I've got out of that colder of fire and even in canada and it seems to be kind of identical conditions. Suffocating humidity. I i in teed j. contouring her hato remus evening officer about conditions and she said yeah. It's really sweaty retirements. When today three in montreal we saw a number of players on court getting the blood pressure checked today getting the pulse taken in the blood pressure..

"We shared the gold medal. Ravin and those two runners who tripped each other who put their arms around each other and ran to the finish line. Such moving stores to my hope. I'm not being too sappy. But they were really wonderful olympic moments. No i mean the moment. I'll take away. Jim isn't like isn't watching. The lynn bench win gold for switzerland. Then titus or anybody else winning a gold medal. The the coolest moment for me was a post game interview. I did with pablo korean augusta who played for bronze for spain and he was so emotional just to win a medal and to represent his country and when i interviewed him he was crying and he said. I know i didn't win. But i felt like i did. And it was such a cool moment like it was really amazing and it reminds you of how important to athletes even pro athletes. These are guys were now. We're going to go back on tour and playing the us open and a couple of weeks and you know have a chance to you know. They gave up a week's worth of making money to to play in the olympics. How important it is to them to represent their country. Well you know what else in all this controversy over simone biles dropping out and signing her mental health issues. I learned that she was the daughter of a single mother of four. Who had serious drug problems. Slum byles was in foster care for much of her childhood until she was adopted by her grandparents so she had a really difficult. go of it As as a child and a contrast between the way she's conducted herself. Someone else that you interviewed. Trying to kushner. Eric novick djokovic who had who criticized simone biles and said she had a meltdown. He of course the great tennis player. Tell us about oil spoiler. You said it. Let's play here. This is before he had his meltdown after he won a thing. Here's karenni talking to joke of it at the start of this match our analysts brad. Gilbert said he feels like you're playing better tennis at the age of thirty four which by the way is not very old than you were at the age of twenty four. What do you say to that. Thank you pretty good answer. He smiled at. You is very charming. But he is a fox news commentator. I did not know that. And i even i didn't know that. Yeah well anyway talk about his meltdown and the criticism he did not get versus all the criticism that was piled on simone biles he was i should say. He was criticized in the tennis world. When and in that sort of little bubble right would he chose. So what happened was novak djokovic for those of you don't follow sports. Closely novak djokovic has won the australian open the french open and wimbledon so he came to japan hoping to win a gold medal in tennis and then if he wins the us open he would be this only the second tennis player ever to win. What's called the golden slam. Which means you win all four tennis majors in one calendar year and a gold medal the only other to ever do it with steffi graf in nineteen eighty eight so there were huge expectations on him..

Like he's incorrigible. He complains he throws tantrums. He doesn't try. Why are you here. is it just that. He can't go on party at these tournaments. I don't know like we've said before. It is very understandable if somebody is made miserable by these working conditions you know this is not easy but you're also not being forced to do this and other players are out here.

Well we also see other players making mature adult decisions for their careers Saying well i'm not gonna play the olympics. Because i don't wanna go through all that for whatever reason i'm going to take some time off like chevelle of did because i need a break from this bubble life. If you need the help you gotta find it at some point. I mean the interesting thing is. I made this flippant joke a few weeks ago when the atp severely reduced their bubble restrictions that will what has been. We're going complain about now while he's still going to complain about the bubble. The bubble is like is really not what it was but he still complaining about the bubble brad gilbert went in he went horror d- on pair saying that the atp has missed the boat here and should have been pub- punishing months ago and at ben. Wash be embarrassed at his own behavior. This that could be. Atp's tagline we miss the boat. Always we talk a lot on these shows. Especially at grand slams about some of the failings of commentary and certain commentators. I do think it's maybe not important but good to talk about some of the times when it goes right yet and it helps when it goes right with people that you don't find objectionable saved. Boris becker had been right down in difficult pill to swallow but it would have been only fair. I mean we don't get bored very often on our tv in canada. It's very rare. But i think what you're talking about is chris. Fowler and brad gilbert actually mentioning the accusations against alexander zverev right this was in the buzzer lush bill. Murray matching the first round. And time and again we have either basil really ors verve on court and the commentators referred to what they allegedly did with euphemisms by beating around the bush in the case of john mcenroe who is a repeat offender with this framing the allegations against them as some difficulty that they have to overcome to further their career and win just one more obstacle in the steeplechase of their career or season. Steeplechase with it's track season yes. In this instance. Chris fowler and brad gilbert. Did this one to step this tandem description and take down of the atp for how. They've handled it with precision not beating around the bush just telling it like it actually is so fowler goes through everything that has happened with best less feeling and then brad chimes in and pivots to say that you know similar accusations have been made against vary of and the atp has failed to deal with this properly and he goes on to say that the atp needs to do better and they need to fix their bylaws asap. Brad was on one that day but in seriousness. This is all that we wanted. We wanted commentators to talk us through the facts of the matter. And chris and brad didn't say that this person is an abuser or this person did this. They took you through the facts of what happened. They said buzzy. Russia really is standing trial for alleged abuse against his ex spouse alexander's era has been accused of such and such. We're not asking for a character. Assassination but we just want the truth and but the important part here is. I feel like andy moore gave them the the voice to be able to talk about this way because the said what they said and then because basil is really was playing murray they then say and andy maury had something to say about impress saying that. The atp doesn't have anything on the books to deal with this sunday should and that then gave them license to then pivot further right because it is news. Even though this stuff happened off the tennis court this is news. It's pertinent to the match. We just give some praise. We are going to do the opposite here with alexandra stevenson because she had an absolute dumpster. Fire of a segment where it felt like tom. Rinaldi vinet pleasing margaret court ineffective just for being nice to her for some reason. Alexandra got on this tangent. About how i know margaret gets a lot of hate dot but she was really nice to me this one time. She's very generous. Like what is she. Talking what is the point of doing this. Who care who cares what. Wait wait rewind. What does she get a lot of hate four. If let's be precise here what are you talking about. I love how you're just like piggybacking off of my intellectual property and presenting them as if it's your own to quote candy burs why don't you piggyback the fuck up. Is that what you wanted to tell me. We steal each other's ip all the time. I think we're allowed but we.

And it was a lovely contrast of styles you know vanna white bang slicing drop-shotting and being so aggressive and selena kind of in her element soaking that up and counterpunching Just just an extremely entertaining match with loads of great shot making. It was just a enjoyable part of the day that one that was a first rounder. Doesn't it Yeah yeah there. Were a lot of those being played today. cameron nori managed to win upon the resumption of his match against liquor. Capri came through in four sets off. Sara lee seem was a winner in straight-sets three three and three over tiago monteiro mezei bertini dropped the second set to gedo pallor but came through in four. I mean he's he. I always forget what a good grass-court player ghetto palo is totally ad until i got to the courts and looked at some of the results and realize that pillow is the man who'd beaten military onyx from two sets down and merrin chile from two sets down when both of them were really favored to go deep wimbledon particularly chile. Three years ago he came in he'd had wimbledon final in australian open final. He just one queens. He went to says love up. And i thought he was going to go all the way to the final that year and i watched him just get chipped away at by pella that day and pedrosa become anderson so it was really interesting the way it was once set all two games all in the third and i thought bertini could be in trouble here. He could have because he was hitting his big shots and yet this guy was coping and then suddenly got one break buried seyni and he was off and he rents at the power even more he won the full set with a bagel. He definitely looks the business to me yet. Tightly it's one of those which as you describe. Settle to all of really precarious position. Given that he races to the finish. It feels like a victory as you said against a danger man on grass which cements his status as a real contender in this tournament. I think if you exclude novak djokovic that was the problem as much as anyone can contend joke but look and catherine i thought you made a brilliant comparison earlier when you said bertini this year foes a bit light me las round h in twenty sixteen. It's it's his time for for run wimbledon. he's in a moment here where he's in the opposite half the jackovic's it doesn't have to worry about him until a potential final and veterans not at his best and there's a lot of young players who are great players but don't have the costco experience yet and he does. He's he's won titles on it. There's there's some expectation on him. And i think i think delivering on. That will be difficult. But i do back. You looks up for that he does.

There is something to that better. He would just ditch that back to front camping. Viva moment hissing. It's not often you see to adult men wearing a back to front baseball cap.

"It's Jill on money. It's our number two, which means it is time for the interview. Very exciting. We've got a great guest for you. You know, we always try to bring you entertaining and smart people. And we actually have the combination of both in author Katy Milkman. She's a PhD She's also an award winning behavioral scientists. She's written a book that caught our attention. Mark and I were very intrigued by the title. How to change the science of getting from where you are. You where you want to be. And I think that you're really going to enjoy this conversation because this is truly about what are the things that get in the way and how we can kind of deal with the fact that we are human beings and as human beings. There's a lot going on in those little brains of ours. How can we deal with that? What are the things that we need to know? And why on Earth did Katy milkman start her whole book with a story about tennis star on Great Agassi. Well, you're about to find out here's our interview with Katy Milkman. So you started your book with a story of Andre Agassi. Now, why'd you do that and explain how that gets us into this idea of how to change? Yeah, I started the book with Andre Agassi first, because tennis is my language. That's what I grew up playing. That's one of the reasons but But second to make a really important point about behavior, change and and the nature of being smart about change, So the story involves a pivotal moment in Agassi's career, where he was really struggling despite having lots of media attention for his flashy clothes and flashy attitude and style. He actually wasn't doing very well on the tour. He was ranked something like 32nd in the world in the early 19 nineties, despite everyone's expectations that he would be dominating. The tour based on his childhood prodigy status and his talent, and he has this pivotal conversation with Brad Gilbert, who was a superstar who just written a best selling book called Winning Ugly and had Out performed his talent vastly on the tour. He was another pro player who had reached Number four in the world despite having very little talent so really different story, and Gilbert pointed out to Agassi that the key flaw in his game was that he was too self focused. He didn't think about his opponent enough on the court. He went out there and he had this set of shots that he would try to head He would go for winners, and it was so good that it took him quite far. And he won a lot of matches but didn't do nearly as well as he could. If he had been thinking more strategically, letting his opponents sometimes lose, letting his opponent make mistakes, putting pressure on the opponent and understanding how To play a more strategic game. And, of course, the happy ending to this story is that after taking Brad Gilbert on his coach, Agassi goes on to when the U. S open after being unseated, meaning no one expected him to perform well in the tournament. At all. He wins that he's the first unseeded player to ever when the U. S open and the last you know in decades, so it's a big historic event. And then he goes on to hold the number one ranking in the world for something like 100 weeks, starting after this pivot. Of course, there were ups and downs, but his career really turns around, and I used this story to make the point that being strategic is absolutely critical. If there's one thing I have taken away from a career studying change, it's that too often we reach for one size fits all solutions. Instead of being strategic thinking about our opponent. What are we up against? What is a barrier to change? If we understand whether we're facing a challenge and unable to make progress on change, because we're having difficulty getting started, or it's a self confidence problem or forgetting or we have bad habits. Or maybe it's because we procrastinate or are impulsive. What's the challenge? And then? Actually, the solution that science suggests will be most effective differs. We need to tailor our solutions. To those challenges, So that's why I start there. I think that the other aspect of this, which is there's no simple way to give somebody, um sort of the template to succeed or to get from where you are to where you want to be. It also resonates with me because obviously this is a show where people Contact us and say Here's my financial situation. What should I do? And I feel like having that direct kind of advice is really helpful, but What I also know is that people they contact us because maybe they feel like they're unsure of themselves, but also because they don't know where to start. So I'm hoping you can help identify this idea around the power of a blank slate. The when you start to try to do something, if you could talk a little bit about that. I think that would be really helpful for folks listening who are saying like I like listening to this? I'm a boyar. But I could never called Jill myself or I don't know even where to start. Yeah, This is one of the most interesting topics. I've had the pleasure of studying, I think and The impetus for doing work on trying to find when are the moments to start came from giving a presentation to a bunch of executives at Google about a decade ago about different tools and tactics that could be used. Promote change, including change around personal savings decisions. They want to make sure that their employees were financially secure, and many of them were opting into their 41 K plan, for instance, and I got this fantastic question, which was okay, we want to offer all of these tools. There's all these nudges we can use to try to improve financial, wellness, health and wellness as well. Is there some ideal time to offer them to our employees? When should we be offering them? Is there a moment when they're particularly motivated to take on? The challenge of change, and I thought it was such a fascinating question, and it provoked this research I did with Hank and die. Who's a professor at U. C. L. A. Anderson and Jason Reece, who is a senior fellow at Warden, where we determined that there are moments in our lives were more open to change and their moments that look like chapter breaks in our lives. Because the way we think about time isn't linear. We think about our life like a series of chapters like we're characters in a book. And we close one chapter open another say at the You know the Boston years or the college years of the consulting years. Whatever it is, there's different things that book end. Those chapters in our lives when we open a new chapter, we feel like we have a new beginning in a clean slate, and one of the best known examples of this is new years, which is a book end. For many of us, we think about time just continuously around New Year's we say Okay, it's a new year. A new me I can do it. You know, I can say that was the old Me who didn't and rolling the four Oh one K or didn't quit smoking didn't make better decisions and the new me Has a clean slate and a fresh start, and it's going to be more capable than the old me was. So it turns out, there's a lot of moments like this, and we even can see them on calendars. So the start of a new week the start of a new month. The beginning of of an era after a holiday is celebrated, particularly holidays that feel like fresh start so more Memorial Day or Labor Day unless Valentine's Day and also birthdays also seemed to motivate this sense of a fresh start and a clean slate in our research, and we've shown that people are more likely to do things like search for the term diet on Google or visit the gym or set goals on popular goal setting websites at these fresh start moments, and if we invite someone, for instance, to start saving to open a 41 K. We did an experiment. Thousands of people who weren't yet saving in a 41.

"There's one thing I wanted to ask about, which is that you open with. This great story about Andre Agassi. Can you? Can you tell me a little Tell me that story because I loved it as like a way to think about this topic, And I love the opening story. Thank you for giving me the chance to tell it. It's I will say that I actually wrote the introduction to the book last, which I've learned is not that abnormal. I'm curious if you have ever done that with any of your books, either with all my books, That's all I do is. Yeah. XB attraction I find like I don't know enough until I'm done with the book to write the introduction. I'm learning it was It was a circuitous road. I had a bad introduction and then This introduction I love the introduction is my favorite part of the book. I wrote it last. It's the story of Andre Agassi and I'll say, you know personally, one of the reasons I love the introduction is also I was a serious tennis player growing up in a serious Andre Agassi fan and realizing I could open with a story that I found so exciting was just you know, it's like magic. Um, so the story that I tell at the beginning is a story that really comes from Andre Agassi's amazing autobiography Open, which I also highly recommend. I should I'm like It's probably right here, and I can hold that book up. If I have a book shelf right above me. The story is of a moment when his career really turned around, and it was in 1994. He had had a really rough period. His ranking had fallen. He was about 32nd in the world if I'm remembering correctly, as coach had just left him and this is a guy who Everybody thought was going to be the best player. He was the young phenom all the people he grew up with Pete Sampras, Uh, Jim career, Michael Chang were outperforming him and everyone had expected him to be the star because he had so much raw talent. So things were really not looking good. And he had this dinner yet it with Another player, Brad Gilbert, who had just written a best selling book called Winning Ugly and Brad Gilbert. It was really it was an interview to see if Fred kill Burt would consider coming on and becoming Agassi's coach. And the dinner started out with just a discussion. A diagnosis. Like, you know, what do you think? What do you think about Agassi's game? There was a manager there is asking these questions. And Brad Gilbert said, Look If I had the raw talent you have, I would be number one in the world and the reason that you're not winning more matches as you are. You are not being strategic. You're just going out there. You have all these weapons are such a great player. You're using a raw talent, and you're not thinking about your opponent and figuring out how to let them lose. Instead of you trying to hit winner after winner. You're not setting up the odds in your favor, And that was really the brilliance of his book that had become a bestseller, Brad Gilbert spoke winning ugly was all about Figuring out what are the ways that you can change a match in your favorites. It's a book about strategy and I can see recognized the brilliance of what he was saying He recognized himself in the description of him of the way he played, and he decided to take Gilbert on. He changed his methodology on the court completely, and he went from unseated in the U. S open that year to winning the whole tournament. Um, he rose to the number one ranked in tennis and held on to that position for about 101 weeks over the course of his career. And of course, there were ups and downs, and he had his own personal challenges, which As a separate behavior change issue, But it was this moment when he recognized you have to understand your opponent in order to succeed, and that is really at the heart of behavior. Change to it's It's a different opponent is not across the net from you. It's it's an inner opponent. But it's the same obstacle that if we just try to sort of take a our best our best swing our best shot, Whatever shiny, attractive approach we read about in in a new Book. Um, that's a single approach right? A silver bullet. It doesn't It doesn't get us where we may want to be. But if we can be strategic and figure out the opponent then we can get much further. It makes a lot of sense, and I want to talk about those those different the tools in the arsenal to use for that. So Crystal asked. Covid made many of us develop new bad habits. Where is the line between Be nice to yourself? You're just trying to survive versus getting yourself to work out more or log off work at a decent hour, etcetera, and this is a hard one, right, like like if we are going to change How do we decide what we should change? And and when? When we've changed enough, it's such a good question. And, you know, one of one research finding that comes to mind that I think is really relevant to this question is there's work showing that if we, um, try to tackle too many challenges at once, and this is by led by Stephen Spiller of U C L. A. He's so that if you make a detailed plan for a bunch of different goals It actually backfires because when you're you're taking on too many things you can't prioritize and you can't focus on the thing. That's that's number one. So I do think it is really important when thinking about change, not just to, you know. Be understanding of yourself, but actually to make sure you're not trying to do too much at once. But if there's a goal that's really important to you, that that is the thing you focus on right now, and you set the other things aside until you've got this under control. So I guess that would be my main piece of advice in this moment when we have formed lots of bad habits, and there's a lot if you want to change. You probably wouldn't be here tonight with us if you are this afternoon if you're on the West Coast if you didn't feel the need to change, But try to pick one thing, What's your Top priority. Start there. And don't beat yourself up about about fixing all the bad habits that make someone sounds. Yeah, and and we just got another question from from curry about, um The fresh start effects and so let me ask you about that because I think that there's on You know, one of the big questions I get. I'm sure you get all the time and just I think one of the things all of us wonder, Is you like New Year's resolutions to do They work right when I'm when I'm starting a new job when I'm going back into my office after I've been living out of, you know, my sweat pants for the last 18 months, like like it feels like it's this opportunity to change everything. And yet we know that we've done that so many times, and our New year's resolutions haven't stuck and so does is it Worth it, or we just condemned to be the same person that we were before the pandemic. You've actually done research on this to try and figure out so tell me like, what have you found? Well, I have bad news, and I am good to do. Okay, So the bad news is that it's absolutely true. And but you know this already that most New year's resolutions fail. And so just deciding and resolving at a fresh start moment that you're going to make change. As you said, it's not enough. Um, but but the research we've done in fresh starts has a some a lot of silver lining. So one thing is that there are fresh starts that motivate us to try again that come about even more frequently than I ever appreciated. When I first started studying this, I sort of knew we all knew about New Year's resolutions. But I worked with former doctoral student of mine henchmen Die who's also at U. C L A lots of you still a shout outs today, um, to figure out that actually, that's just one of many moments in our lives that feel like a fresh start and give us a sense of a clean slate and a new beginning and this extra motivation to change they can be as small as the start of a new week. Or more momentous, like the celebration of a birthday. Um, this moment that we're living through right now is obviously as we're getting vaccinated. We're starting to return to offices and see friends we haven't seen feels like a fresh start. They give us this sense of optimism, and that's important because it gets us started. The problem is, it doesn't do a lot more than get started. So that's that's again going back to this. Keep point of. We need more tools, and we need to know the obstacles..
