Tennis World Stops For Andy Murray, Until Politics Takes Over; Kyrgios Wins Our Hearts Again; What's With Rafa's New Serve?
With two days to go before the 2019 Australian Open, the main story in town is still Andy Murrayâ€™s announcement that he will retire before the end of the year. Following their immediate reaction to the news yesterday, David Law and Catherine Whitaker were joined for further reflections on Saturday by The Telegraphâ€™s Simon Briggs.The self-proclaimed â€˜Andy Murray correspondentâ€™ has spent eight years covering Murrayâ€™s career, so what does he make of yesterdayâ€™s events? What was Murray like in his half hour sit-down with the British press corps? And has he given himself some wriggle room by talking about a possible hip resurfacing operation?Nick Kyrgios was one of many players to pay tribute to Murray. In an interview with Catherine, he even hinted that heâ€™d like to be coached by Murray one day. How might that work? And what of Kyrgiosâ€™ own chances this fortnight?Finally, Simon gives his take on the political storm surrounding tonightâ€™s player council meeting in Melbourne. Why do some players want to eject Chris Kermode from his position as ATP president? Are they actually calling for a playersâ€™ union? And how is the situation complicated by the felony charge hanging over Justin Gimelstob? The Tennis Podcast will be produced daily throughout the Australian Open (and at all the Slams) after our Kickstarter was funded by our listeners.If you would like to chip in and have your name on the Tennis Podcast website backers page, you can, until it closes on Monday - http://po.st/TP_Kickstarter2019
