"Naked Waiting let's move into our fifth set. This is the king of the court. Mike question to you is this. What is your dream tennis? Scenario for twenty twenty. He's thinking give it a minute you know what. I think that I saw two of the greatest finals back to back that I can ever remember you know the Wimbledon final the US Open final seeing somebody like a BB UNDRESS Q. Come from absolutely nowhere and win big term. It's win a slam. See somebody like an Ash. Bardy come from fifteen when we saw some things last year. That was like Whoa. I would've never thought So I think more than anything. I root for when we get to the business end of these tournaments that we get the memorable matches like last year like the biggest Downer was. We got to the ozzy open quarters and then all and it was like everybody kept saying. Don't talk about the Rafa jokers talking about a no hitter. Perfect game they end up playing in the final. And then we get out remember joke. Routed quarter semifinals and then he just routed Ross so I you know are we see Rafa dominate at the French but getting the chance to sit courtside and watch a match where you don't know who's going to win like this. The Medvedev match came from nowhere from two sets. And we see this epic the epic. You know first breaker at Wimbledon. So if you could ask me. That's my dream scenario that we get great memorable men's semi finals. You know at the business end the same thing for women's we get to see Serena get twenty four. How about that and then hopefully a bb address cue's healthy. And I gotta feeling that maybe another young American woman can win slam in twenty twenty and then I'm still like how about American man. Make semi's of a slam this year or better yet. You know break. The drought of we haven't won a slams. Is You know that would be a dream since two thousand three. I like I like I think that's a good. I think that's a good way to look at twenty twenty. How would that about that? Yeah my man When do you fly Tursday? And and you Do you stop in Sydney then bused to Melbourne from Sydney to do that and go direct it's l a Melbourne direct. I'm like what airlines you. What was that movie when we were kid?

"Days. I'm there on foot. My hotel is a ten minute walk from the courts and the TV compound. So I walked to so literally. I think I gauge it. Sometimes it like I can be on foot the entire tournament. It's incredible easy groove. I open up the drapes from my hotel and see the courts. Ask Party amazing year from If you told me she was going from fifteen to one I'd have dropped and give you one hundred percents. Samsung does or I had a great career. I mean she's now kind of she has the choice. Yeah she's on the on the back nine for sure. I A- Tomanovic crazy. She's a Croatian. The grew up in south Florida. That place for Australia. Talk about multi-culture but that's but that's pretty much multi-culture of of Australia which is very cool. And moments and incredibly Mo- multicultural city with lots of different ethnicities Does that girl have a chance to become an elite player. Would you consider elite top ten player? Nah I'm not seeing any. I mean the ball. She plays a little bit like Ivanovich but she doesn't she doesn't she's not not a very good mover and her upside is incredible but sometimes like when you watch play. She's she can lose yourself because she plays so big and she misses so I thinking maybe top twenty.

"Okay. Maybe I can win some more matches here. This is our fourth set. This is the ten ball scramble. There's not a deep dive we're GONNA. We're GONNA do a very Australia and Australian Open themed. Okay broke ten wall scramble. Okay Adelaide Quirky. It's on the half hour. You're shaking your head so if it's eleven o'clock in Melbourne it's either ten thirty or it's eleven thirty. They're they're on the half hour Perth I mean have you have you been? I've own I watch the Super Bowl and Andre. We're going on our way to Davis Cup match. And we stopped there. He goes okay. Well let's stop here and watch the Super Bowl but I don't know a lot about it I it's it's like going from New York to La. It's all the way on the other side of the country and they obviously had a great event the Hofmann Cup But I never really been there other than to watch the super bowl at a bar wants Brisbane Good city And and the great beaches like the Gold Coast like an hour away a little bit different than the rest of Australia. It's humid it's a little bit like Florida And I got one of my worst memories of I want to be titled There. My I believe my last title was in Brisbane but I lost a couple of Davis. Cup matches their eighty six that literally just I wanted to punch through the Wa. I put us out of the you know I lost both matches and we lost the semi. Didn't get to play for three years later to make the team so still mad about losing those matches on grass letting our team down Kuang man old school. First Time I played there. Play all of your Australian opens a no but I played a few of them this historic place and by the way when I say old school it wasn't like you could find out about these things you see. It may be in a magazine a year late. Whatever so the first time you're actually there is the first time ever really seen it. And you have these old ricky stands it you know the history of some of these massive Davis Cup matches and the Ozzy Open. I think the first time I had a hit on the court I went. Whoa one side of the court to the other side. You're about five inches higher. It's like this and then you have to court. Oh my God of course for the drainage and it's like they're not green grass they're like Brown grass and you know the first time that I played there too in the summer I didn't realize Melbourne was so hot. I it's like Oh my God I had never. I hadn't played in the desert and played in Palm Springs at. It's funny is how you like your keg..

I wouldn't do it as I want. I love to have you but if you go if you apply you might not be eligible coach Gould. Dick Gould the longtime legendary coach of Stanford Tennis Shut. You'd say listen. No no he he had he has shimmy. Tin Are Best Friends? Since second grade in Ventura they started together in tennis. He said I would love to have you. But I'm not sure you have to enroll. The rule is to get you and he goes then you might not be eligible and then I already was having a lot of success in October November of Nineteen eighty-one. I started getting some pro results and then also I was thinking about you know I had coach one immediate like go try to win the NC Double A.'s. So I told pepper. Non was go to school so I started in January. This is ninety this January nineteen eighty-two yes so and I accept this scholarship. I'm going to go so also having success and I'm I'm thinking about maybe I should just turn pro are making some cashier these tournaments and stuff like and I told coach about. I tell shift that you know I'm thinking I'm probably going to turn pro. And he goes no. You're not you told the coach. You're going to go there for one semester. You'RE GONNA win the NC Double A.'s. Then you're gonNA turn pro and coach just had that influence on me. That when he said that that okay I gotta do it so then what I screwed up. I lost in the finals. The NCAA's I lost you know this match. I was there to to win this match to win the team. We we blew it the final. Ucla when we beat them three times during the season and then I blow it in the final and lose to Mike Leach so it was a great experience plan for Pepper Nine Plan for coach. Fox but I blew it in the team and the individuals Mike Leach unrelated to Rick Leach unrelated unrelated likely from Massachusetts. That was a senior had a monster. Serve little bit like Dennis Shop Ball if he was a guy about maybe five ten to conserve one forty and he wasn't that Herald of player but he got hot and he'd beat me in the finals. Enza's first year. That wasn't best to five. I had won the match two matches the day before quarters and Semis and Alan Fox. Tell me I need to train. And I never trained Fox peppered I I beat Marceau Freeman into semi's six and six. I cramped for four hours afterwards and the next day my legs were like beyond like Jelly. Yeah Yup so he was right. He's telling me I should've trained. I didn't train now. I don't have any inside information on this. I've only heard you allude to it. Generally speaking you didn't really attend class. Is that a fact. I tended class at foothill I had to crawl but pepperdine he was a little bit looser. Al Little Bit loser loser plus. I was only there for one semester. I was turning pro. I figured if when I was there you know what classes I was taken tennis. Serve back over to. Ucla and play with Brian Teacher. Play with these top so when I was here it was all about knew I was going to be playing pro really soon. I was working on my game. I wasn't like Jesus was just having fun. I was but I was really felt like okay. I'm going to use this five months to really to get better on my tennis because I want to be a tennis player. My Dad told me is create when I was ten. I was a Ballboy for the Davis Cup final. Us Romania he goes. You're playing. You're playing Davis Cup. You're playing. You're going to be a pro tennis player. I didn't even know what that meant. He would and I wasn't even that good but you're going to play Davis Cup. You're going to be a pro and so by the time then all of a sudden when I'm twenty in it's closed it's like man that was on my mind so that's why when I was here. It was working my game. Was there one moment that you that something? Click where you said you know what I can be. I can be a a matriculating pro tennis player. Making realm was ever like a razor one match. Was there one moment. Was there one win one loss? These said you know what man I could be a top twenty guy in the world I could be a top ten guy in the top five guy in the world I tell you. The moment seriously was forty years ago. January second one thousand nine hundred eighty when I got to foothill and I think that my game was nowhere being a pro tennis player. Even though I always thought I'm supposed to be but that short period of time when all of a sudden shift fix things and then all of a sudden guys it would smoke me. You know if I third round of you know. Play some of these guys that were from l. a. and the top juniors also written Jeez. I'm playing a match against Stanford Guy or Berkeley Guy you know. And I'm taking somebody who would shit and then I think when I played one of my first pro tournaments I got a wildcard somewhere qualities and probably the biggest moment for me. I played eighty-one The San Francisco term. It used to play the qualities at San Jose State. I had to win six matches in one thousand eight draw in the prequels and then first round I play guy ranked forty in the world. Who Tim Wilkerson could play because the tournament was loaded. We walk on the court. I got my foothill jacket on and he doesn't know me and I. Tom Right before the match. I said Tim. We played in the Westerns Open at some college. Whatever I don't even know where was was before Kalamazoo. He was the legendary. You just destroyed me love and love in about forty minutes in this before the coins get ready and I said today is going to be completely different. So he's the number one seed and I'm unranked. I have Two points headquarters lead at one event. I taught me we had two points. He doesn't know me. From Adam and I said today is going to be different. He's kind of looking at me. I took him to the shady. I think he was so radically. Beat them three and two. I ended up. Losing the qualities. Walter Redondo was. I was disheveled by that. But I think that that moment I knew that like wasn't like you can go to youtube and stuff like I knew Senate on the ATP WHATEVER..

"He can bring some freaking rockets fire. Let's go into our third set and you know it's funny. We have to pretend like we've never spoken. We've never done this This is the part of the show. We talk about your career. Where does your tennis begins? Humbly Like Jesus say humbling humbly Kind of like a conspiracy bake My Dad like all of a sudden one day when he was about for. You're the youngest of three youngest three. When my dad was about twenty eight he had an apartment building and some tenants left left. Some rackets North Northern California in Oakland Oakland. So he got his first racket. Molded brother was seven and they went out and played tennis so my sister is five. I'm three and then like one time. They played it. Wasn't like you could go to Utah. Google and find information out all these things. Maybe it's about the encyclopedic but I think my dad played once or twice with my my brother they got some balls and he proclaims we're being. We're tennis players that's IT. So that's it that's it. We're we're playing tennis. And then so my sister started to get but I was a treat. They weren't GonNa let me play yet so down in our basement we had a wall and then he he made the height of the net line. And then he's okay because I want to get out there badly. My brother's plan my sister's starting to get to play and he proclaims we're playing tennis. I'm like Jones in because I'm not getting the play yet. I'm too small too young. So my dad says okay when you can make fifty in a row onto wall in the basement then you're getting on the court so within maybe few weeks. I made fifty in a row with a real ball and offered rock. Yeah and I'm telling you that thing was probably like like I think my dad got me a dunlop. It was probably a four five age group. Who was thirteen and a half Ounces and then put a grip on there and then then that that was basically the start of my tennis and then by the time I was. Let's say four. I think we all you know five six seven days a week. I don't think people I I'm certain that people really don't know this but your brother Barry was a was a very good tennis player. Got To four hundred in the world was a plate of South Carolina. Gamecocks and your sister got to top fifty in the world. She's forty in the world. You explain your the family. My older sister Dana Who's Twenty months older than me. She became the best in the family in June years at a younger So when she was fourteen she was in the. I don't know if you look it up. You could find out. I believe one year she was like top five in the country. Her last year fourteens sixteens and eighteenth so by the time like back in the day like when I was eight. You'd play the ten twelve twelve forty you can only play one division now. You can't play all these rules. I mean sometimes I go play a tournament. Let's play twelve to fourteen or my sister would play fourteen sixteen eighteen so I play. Two Thousand Fourteen sings in doubles. And you could play like eight matches in a week so you were a junior tournament playing family big time but we only big time. But we didn't go. My sister was only the one that's to play some of the big ten minutes. I never played you know. Always over eighty her orange bowl any June. I never hardly ever left Northern Cal. My sister did. And why is that? You didn't play. And and what about your brother did he play like orange bone? No no no. We just kind of stayed enor- cow you know. Maybe my brother did a Pacific north. I played Kalamazoo three times. First Round three times and everyone a match there So you just hunker down and cal cal I didn't. I never even played in southern cal once so. I'm just playing junior tennis. Yeah so my and I played men's term so my sister got really good and by the time she was sixteen she was really good and I think in the summer between was she was only seventeen. She won the US clay courts in Indianapolis and all of a sudden was like forty in the world and the dumbest thing my dad did was. She didn't turn pro and it was like then. She went like six months later or a year later. Played College Tennis. Which girls didn't do that? You know. And so then when she did turn a few years later I. I'm not sure that she ever was the same. She got back up to forty in the world and she went to Ucla. Yeah but that wasn't really the move you don't think you should have turned pro and made a made up made a fortune. Yeah and then you know then all the top guys went to college. It wasn't the same you know for that many of the women so that was a big mistake that I'm sure my sister got back up to about forty in the world and then she kinda got burned out and stop when she was twenty three and now and Berry. Berry was a good player. You know it's funny as we look the same have a similar game but for some reason God didn't give him the wheels Hughes a slower. Oh my God. He was a little bit like Andrei and his brother. Phil is Phil. Was You know two ends on both sides but a little bit stuck in quicksand so junior didn't get blessed with the the the good feet yet monster forehand. I've I had. I learned that he when he he was a star of South Carolina becomes players like a big story that he transferred. He transferred from Kenya Junior College and then played at university when he said he was going to. Usc At first I thought it was UC. Wow you're in the US. You don't even know where the gamecocks he went to the gamecocks he had a big forehand and back and he tried to play pro tennis now. Really you know what he did which was great for him. He played about three years of Bundesliga in Germany. Make a little money travel round but his his backhand and his movement we're not gonNA allow him to make the pro tour but you know good college player and and you know still to this day. My junior sixty two years old loves to play in Yeah he loves to play who is seventeen year old eighteen year old Brad Gilbert finishing high school. What happened we who were you and what happened. I'll tell you when I when I graduated from High School I was five seven hundred and twelve pounds. Maybe on a stack of books. And there's no reason for this. I mean my brother's six one. My Dad's six three and my mom's five seven and I was just a shrimp when I got my first license. Sixteen five three one or two and then zero late bloomer late bloomer so I finally got a lot better out of nowhere in a six week period I had started at Arizona. State didn't work out. Coach got fired before I got their new coach. I didn't get along after one semester. I leave I just transferred to foothill junior college and when you can get along. What's what's an example of the static. The this coach came from Irvine. His name was Myron McNamara never heard of him never met him. He comes so the three weeks before school started the coach that gave me a scholarship. Got fired this guy comes in. He comes to the team and he brings three guys with him to redshirt and then like basically came stacked. Yeah and he kind of said basically that you know your scholarship is in jeopardy. And he's never even seen me player. Whatever so we got off to a bad foot first day and I was like I don't want to be here you know so and you had that kind of juicer. You said listen get me out of here. I told my dad I'm Outta here. You know in December and he was so mad new. You've got this car. I'm not staying here. This guy is brutal he does. You know he doesn't inspire and this is a bad situation for me. Dad. I'm out and then all of a sudden December twentieth I leave twelve days later. I enroll at foothill junior college. And that's basically the first time I met my coach. Tom Shifting to January second in this guy. Nineteen eighty and I just called him on January. Second nineteen eighty. It was the fortieth anniversary of me-meeting him. And he changed my life. Tennis-wise in we just gelled instantly And you've got to explain that he change your life tennis-wise. Tom Shipping ten. I I never really had a coach. And he was the first person other than my dad but the first person because kind of self taught but he was the first person that had a really good voice and he started working with me on the weekends and he started you know teaching well first of all the greatest thing about schiff he made you feel at all the twelve guys there at school that you were at the number. One school in the country Stanford was five miles away but he made us feel like this. You're here and and so many people go to junior college. Oh I'm above this or you you tell people you tell guys that you grew up with or junior college. They kind of looked down you. Whatever it was like so instantly. He helped me with my game. My two worst areas of my game when I was eighteen back in was not very good and serve was not very good and instantly. Coach took me into the shed and showed me a real a hand. Crank of Barry. Mackay serve and and he goes. How's your serve compared to that and I was like Ooh I need work myself. And then he showed me another pitcher somebody hitting over there one handed backhand and I can only chip it that okay and so then from that day on. We started working on my serve and backhand in about two weeks. All of a sudden I started. Serve a little better all of a sudden. I started hitting my back in better and then for some reason. I don't know if there was some magic dust. I tell this story. People don't believe me. I went from January. Second to around February fifteenth in a five week period. I grew six inches. A come on I shook. I grew six inches so all of a sudden. I'm six one and a couple of Times I. I was living with a a guy in the team. I'd come. I wake up after sleep in. And he looked at me and he goes dude. What happens what do you mean and it's like you must have grown and I was like I really I haven't grown. I don't grow and move. I got you know on the shrimp in Family. But it was like weird. I would go one weekend. Five seven five five eight five ten six then all of a sudden by March I was six one thirty and then but my serve started getting better my back and started to get better and every guy that was really good especially from southern Gal. I started playing guys that would beat me easily and I started playing guys and then I remember guys that I would lose to to and to all of a sudden. I'm it's almost like I'm looking at the rear view mirror. It's like Oh my God. I started beaten guys like to and would do and two and I was like but I didn't question anything from coach and just kept working on things and just he used to say beyond time and be humble spent one year I spent a year and a half. They played two seasons. I played the Nine thousand nine hundred eighty season at I played the nineteen eighty-one season to play two full seasons at Foothill Junior College. So what was the impetus for you to go? Well I guess that you're done with junior college. After two years you got so I took one semester off and then I kinda wanted to go to Stanford but back then..

"Mostly new stuff for people like young people like you played move into our second set. This is the on the court. Report men Let's start with the women. Action packed. I'm just GonNa see the names and what's supposed through it. First of all Serena wins a fourth tournament in the fourth decade man. She's been in four decades. She win the tournament. What do you say about that? I mean hearner sisters longevity. I mean it's it's crazy. I mean. She played Venus. Played in ninety four. Oakland I think Serena turn pro wet ninety six. I mean. They've been around forever and their excellence. continuing on is crazy In four of the last eight slam finals I think coming into this millburn. You know with the wind under belt in Auckland. I think that obviously we don't know the draw yet so do. The women's field is a lot more stacked than the men's so we have to you know. She's a favorite for now. Well two hundred percent. But what what what? What would you say about her quality in during Lachlan? I know you had to have had your eye on some of that tennis I always liked to. I mean I'm only watching that on the TV. So they soon as I get to Melbourne. You know always like a couple of days before determine like to drift over the practice courts watch practice and then I watched the first one so I call more the eye test in person but obviously what I saw. She looked really good and I had to do her confidence world. Good but I I still think though with the Women's Oh we could get a loaded quarter. We could get a loaded half there so many that I still think there's eight ten could win it so maybe of those eight ten. Maybe we happen to get three or four in one quarter or six in one you know so it could be some tough navigations as we don't know the draw yet. I did not see it because it was at four in the morning on the West Coast. It was leap but not apparently Naomi Osaka serve for the match in the semis against Bush. Cova Push Cova. I mean the quality was massively. High Push Cobra defended her title Do you have any observations about push cova about ASAKA coming into next week? Well Asaka is definitely turned her game around in in the fall she had really good fall after. Kinda struggling a little bit of a Neat Thing and obviously the coaching change. She was never the same. Now has a new coach She looks like she's playing a lot. Better new coach. He's been with like four or five good players like the last four or five years. Seems you know one year one year one year so It'll be interesting to see. How their their partnership goes but she's definitely back in the mix. I'll put her as one of definitely one of the ten favorites. I'm not sure you know obviously like I said. I need to see the women's draw. I'm not sure that I'm ready to say that. Somebody that hasn't WanNa Slam is GonNa win this slam meaning A SNAKE PUSH GOV. I call her snake for snake. Pushkin Push Cova Fit Alina like a keys. You know more Bush arena just took her to the woodshed. But but I really like her. Moving forward You know Jeannie Bouchard softened up. Any some over the night before they went Six four in the third. They had a very physical hard match but still the first time. When you're playing Serena you know it's like probably first time facing Michael Jordan. It's like Jesus he's right or then all of a sudden Nixon you know they're going street through you So I think I think the women's though right now each show deep and it it still kind of like I I mean and then the biggest surprise you know but obviously it's going to be the biggest thing to watch for her. The next eighteen months is the health to be addressed a picture to win the open and I think as she was indeterminate. I would probably pick her to win it. But obviously she got injured again in the women's final. Not Healthy to play so. I I think that that even determine a little more wide open I will say Serena is the first favorite and I still think ten could win it What was your impression It was a huge success. They had like two hundred and twenty five thousand for for the tournament. Serbia beat Spain in the final. I mean you get Djokovic you know playing doubles and playing. Obviously you know singles matches. I think it's to too many matches. The Old World Team Cup would be two groups of four. So you you gotTa Win Through Your Group. Then you play the final so before matches. I think maximum it should be as four groups of four semifinal. So you can't play more than five minutes or so tha- twenty four teams six matches. I think it's too much for a joke of its nit all who potentially before the Australian Open do you feel like. I thought that I thought that the quality of some of those matches was sky high lake where I couldn't believe what I was watching. Has the level of the sport gone to another place? I feel like I'm watching. I watched Medvedev play joker. I almost couldn't directly now. One guy took a step back off that baseline man. I think that the three team cup event all were wildly successful labor went down to the final match tiebreaker. The Davis Cup was incredible atmosphere. And we got to see so many great matches there and I think the cool thing about even though it was only six weeks after the Davis Cup I think the coolest thing for me is looking over in the corner and it kind of like a couched area and then you'd see all of team Spain. They're all of teams Serbia there. I think that inspires the players so when you saw the last two sets of the joke. Medvedev you see both benches and you're seeing the coaching and and and I think that players are inspired when they have teammates like that so I think the level was off the charts and I thought having three team events is way too many but they were all wildly successful but I think that every year an Olympic year to this year. It's a lot but to say that the level wasn't great and the drama was in great would be an understatement to let you out and it was unbelievable. Tim Henman Tim. Henman a wild on the sidelines. Man mild-mannered Tim. Henman up a squash. The captain's the players the bench. I mean who would think that Serbia would have like a massive like. I've seen it for years. There's a huge Serbian contingent contingency down that lives in Melbourne. And they come out and then that is the greatness of the Australian Open you see countries represented on small courts. But here was a big court. You got like seven thousand Serbians and when Jovic wins in Melbourne and he comes over we interview him onset. You cannot believe the people that are in the quad area waiting for him and he lives to. Trophy. It's epic you feel like you're in. You're in Serbia and what happens what happens. Australian Open. What happens in the men's open does Medvedev Is linked to be so obviously to to storylines first one big three of one twelfth straight. Can they continue to make it thirteen and keep the street going? And then you've got the next three you know. In Medvedev team city pass can one of those three potentially stop. You know you know one of the big three or more likely joker you know who's been absolutely dominant in Melbourne from winning again. I do think if joker let's say joker wins again. It's thirteen then. All of a sudden we get to the clay. Maybe puts more pressure but I do think if somehow one of the big three dozen win and we get a new first time champions especially either Medvedev team our city pass then. Maybe we have a change. Last year I set the over under on the big three at three and a half and I really thought. Okay it's going to be four this year. I I certainly not concrete in like that where I'm going to say it's going to be three and a half and I expect it to be for. I actually think that I'll be surprised. If one of those three does not win a slam in twenty twenty. Yeah I I guess. I'm curious to know if you have any interesting information about various if he's hip city. I mean listen. He turned his game around incredibly in Labor Cup and in the fall after falling off the rails he made it to. London actually played well in London. He could curtail the double-fault problems at the fact that he made it in London with how much he was struggling. He was double-faulting over Twenty Times a match Cincinnati and a cup these tournaments and now so the dovid faulting is unbelievable. So obviously that's a concern. I mean he's still young. Obviously he played those exhibitions with Fed. And you know I'm sure he got some good advice there but I need to come watch him in practice. But there's a bunch of other young guys I'm telling you Chapman Paul off is playing way better. The last three months especially with usually coming on board would not be surprised to see him in the top eight in the world this year. Call US and the The newer newish coach of Shaparov Olov Pablo has been lights out playing unbelievable level for a guy. That's maybe six feet tall and sneakers.
