"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..

"Match in match out rock solid on both ends service returning like just kind of breaks the numbers for what he can do. I is that the comp. Nah i don't like it because medvedev's who is funny. Did you see the two sexy video with drake. The hammer come out. And there's a little dancing. We'll look at a no comment on that but medved here's the Another knock on medvedev. I just said his only docket sir versatility. Another thing is like mentally could be a total head case. Now i mean let's be honest true. I mean the clay court season was not a matter of medved of his flat so he can't win a match. No the clay thing was. He was mentally not ready to win a match. This was not about medved of his flat. So he can't get out of the first round of monte carlo like come on. He can't beat dan evans play. Wait that's we lost right. Yeah yeah he can't beat dan evans on play really no of course he can't he just was basically being ahead. Case by my push back to that would be but then. We saw the french open. Run where he won exactly how he was supposed to when he decided. You know what. I am gonna lock in physically and i'm just by tennis on these clay courts and it's worth reminding everyone danila medvedev has only been new frequent medvedev price since the start of twenty. I mean you would really say okay. Midway through that twenty nine hundred hardcore stretch at the end of the year. I thought he flashed that level at the start on was starting to look very very good throughout the course of the season. But he's only been neil medvedev really for about six months you know. This is his first full season of being daniel freaking metadata because twenty twenty got cut off and there would have been a whole season of clay court repetitions for him to of go through the lumps that he went through this year. And that's just. I always want to mention the data point. Because and the amount of there's two techs gotten most you know it's about medvedeva rod kanu and it's about generational shifts. I'm having people who don't watch a things just seem to be different now. All these young players are winning. And it's like man you really haven't listened to the pod since two thousand seventeen have it just. It does felix for all of them. The you know male or female. The address cue's osaka's medvedev sixty passes of the world like what is the sample size of grass court matches. What is the sample size as a little bit larger but like surface versatility. If that is one thing you're concerned about. I actually think that's a great thing because there been limited wraps for medvedev like yes. He turns twenty six next year but he really hasn't been demille medvedev. Clay court matches for more than six months. Yes yeah it's not quantifiable theory to throw a few of a match. You know the but it's a true theory. I think with especially with the grass. It's that people need to not look at past results like it was driving. Both of us crazy. I think when people were like sixty pastas number from past the first round of wimbledon duties played at twice like like so. I think that was out of hand. at the same time they a guy like medvedev did play wimbledon juniors and actually had a lot of success there so There are some reps. I do think that there are some stylistic. Things felix felix His games great on the grass. So so it's not. It also might be something where we're like not looking at anyone except ruble of positive era and medvedev and that is also kind of to our detriment because there are actually other players bertini and felix..

"Ira tweeted this. Some sort of negative thing from daniel medvedev's lost against andre group of. Oh here's why deniro medvedev is in trouble heading into the us open congratulations. I now take you less seriously. But for andre rupe left you can absolutely you can absolutely take positives and the big positive was. He didn't break down. He didn't just try to hit his way through everything he was patient. He forced medvedev to make tactical adjustments. You just stopped giving medvedev anything. Easy no more unforced. There's he started taking his backhand down the line a little bit more. He started coming to the net a little bit more. Just throwing different looks at medvedev even incorporating some backhand slice because the same patterns they were in rube. Love trying to mock seventeen on four hands with medvedev somehow tracking them all down and then just ripping the passing shot by ru blood in the end. That wasn't working things like the show. I mean it held that rebuffs. First-serve percentage shopped massively sets two and three but just it was more dynamic than just a first forehand from rupa he started. You know crafting points waiting for start. Stop forcing it. On the third forehand he got of the rallying wait until that sixth seventh and eighth forehand to really open up a crack in the court and attack the neo medvedev through that crack arizona. It was a it was a performance. It's funny because i the i don't wanna see narratives because narratives are always arbitrary and there's no real narrative surrounding andrew rube lab this season but forty one and fourteen in twenty twenty. One doesn't feel that way anymore right. It doesn't feel like he's seventy five percent of his matches of late. And yet you look at the actual results was disappointing. Clay court season particularly. But you look elsewhere so we starts out wins. Atp cup with medvedev doesn't lose. In that event quarterfinals he loses medvedev. Australia wins rotterdam semifinals. Doha loses to rb a semifinals. Dubai loses to carrots semifinals. Miami loses to her finals of monte-carlo loses to safety poss- through april. He was one of the best five players in tennis. I think unequivocally no one would have denied that. And you look at the advanced metrics. He's still one of only five players to be top. fifteen in both hold and break percentage for the season. Be look since that april monte-carlo result. I mean the loss is quarterfinals to center in barcelona round of sixteen seven. Six in the third to is ner. That's fine by the way the loss tow center to and six you. He loses three sets to senegal rome. Quarterfinals five sets strew first round roland-garros five sets to future vich fourth-round wimbledon. The is ner lost five and six canada like you lose disner five and six on a hardcourt that happens sometimes when serves well. He makes the semis of that of an rightly made the final. It was clearly conducive to big-serving yes. It wasn't the best run for him. Post monte-carlo to the start of cincy but honestly there haven't been any red flags for andrew blended anything. It's just like okay..

"And talk about the men's side and i'm sorry to beat that horse i just really. I'm fascinated by the topic moving forward. I know we talked about it quite a bit today but now sort skiers talk about the men's bunch of upsets on the day in particular. You gotta give a shout out to Dimension damn cope for four set win over. Fritz carlos alvarez continues to exceptional six four six two six four win over basler's fairly physically able the hang at this level folks and he's not even twenty years old yet not even nineteen years old yet Yeah you know if eighteen barely eighteen. I think he just had his birthday. If memory serves me correct but he was able to withstand the first strike of basler's feeling he was able to get his return deep enough. That basler's really wasn't able to tee off on nearly as many forehands you to expect it. And then his forehand is heavy as you're gonna find and his ability to move that ball around the court his ability to find for hinton a bunch of different positions on these clay courts his ability to hit that kick serve his comfort. Moving forward incorporating the backhand dropshot. He just keeps you off balance and to really clever game and again over under one and a half french open titles in his career given his age he's got prior a fifteen year window. Had of him to do it. Do you take the over. It's an interesting question But certainly you know him. Beating basler's feeling i don't think he's a huge upset. It's more just again a continuation of the narrative. It makes sense. Carlos alvarez is into the third round. i think he's the youngest guy to do it in like fifteen years to reach the third round of the french open. I yeah i think since ed jovovich or certainly yeah because i think they're a little bit younger anyways. Alcatraz advancing to the third round. Koepfer advancing as well. You also saw a win from kyle. Six love to six six four. Six three over gale oman. Feast now you know. Physically monkeys obviously has been so banged up all year long..

"Fair gets through there. That draw opens up. If plus of plus brutal. I two matches that kitchen stevens back to back. She's like i might not a top ten seed. Like what do i have to do to get one of the obamas who are outside the top seventy five for like what do i have to do to just get a random gaspar yan match or something like that but no it's just like these established names over and over again these players who are so hungry to get back where they belong in the rankings. She's like come on like hook you up but and then how does cannon respond to baptiste. Cannon was excellent against us to panko is kevin back like is that a story line. We have to monitor if she wins one in one tomorrow maybe she is if she loses to a tricky haley. Baptise than it was like. Okay that was a bit of a bit of agana. ah whatever. The word is of deceit Mirage that's the word i was looking for there. It is so they're all interesting on the women's side. I feel like. I've watched fritz coat for a thousand times like i know i don't know how many times they've played in their career. But like i just feel like. That's a match. I've seen taylor. Fritz lose repeatedly and i would like to see them win that match tomorrow. The straight up. It's time for him to win that match. Yes i have middling confidence in in fritz in that match. I would say i mean. I don't feel extremely confident. Either way D- do you think he's moving well enough on on the clay to pull off that victory. I don't know it's a good question. He hits heavy enough ball. That like. i'm just you respond to when you're on your back foot pushes you back. And that's the quality that's so fascinating to me about him on clay courts because he's got the serve and then the heaviness of groundstroke. But you're right like i mean there are times out there where i'm like i could attract that down like come on. What are we doing here. And it's just like it's it's a whole thing so again. I think that's a match for to hit his ceiling. It's time for him to start winning. And i just at the same time down. Covers plan some really good ball of late so i am very very excited to see that one unfold but again was a fantastic first half of the second round.

I'm going to say move. Said beats nishioka such a such a beautiful matchups for seti could ca- fan initi- ohka could not ask for better for his play style.

"Mitch. As mentioned never been on cass. Menovich the moment. You think he's gonna win. he's not going to. This match was very very good but laszlo gets the better of him. You also had stevie j steve jason clay court specialist gill. The numbers prove it out the most his career at any slammed come at the french open. He's got eleven there. I believe the next closest total is eight. And then del bonus going to dell bonus five-set win for him over and that was a match that looked exactly. How do you think it looked your thoughts on the matches that went the distance yet for first. Dvd it's the stevie j. It's the it's the forehand and obviously just the immense physicality like is he the greatest athlete ever probably so so good. That's a great win for him. gera- i'm glad to see back on the scene so to speak. I know he never went anywhere but he stopped winning on clay. And that's not something that i was expecting to happen. Yeah he can be a little bit erratic but his power is legit especially on the forehand side. Vich fatina f- akina against baltic van de santeuil scope. By the way i was i was just so you know it's hard. Because at that point you're seven syllables. Deep in you're like just the name what what were you gonna say there someone. Someone corrected you on twitter. My my my girl betty. She always correct. I appreciate at bow take vendors sense. Cope You can also find all the pronunciations on the website. But that's a story for another time. Anyway i mean that. I expect that to be a close match. And that's a really Result for the For vantage zan scope or excuse me a positive tournament. I meant to say and A good win for vich makino. Who's going to be dangerous absolutely. He's everything. I think i said this last name. He's everything american fans want. Tom eupol debbie Fourteen and that was the all scrabble match by the way as well. Because you found aldrovandi holes all of your high letter High number letters as well. Those are your upsets your matches. That went the distance in terms of the other results on the day. Let's start with the women's seeds The ones who looked comfortable sabah. Langkah the five minute stretch. Where she's like. I don't feel making any more tennis balls. And then of course she recovers seven five six three over sas mitch. Very impressive win for azarenka. Five in four over clara toss in you had winds from through civil rebecca very impressive from madison keys to knock off layla. Fernandez chink cova. Then but dosa anytime. You can beat anyone to know at a grand slam. You're doing something right. Your thoughts on the women's seats results sabah. Langkah was Was a good match for me for her because she one ugly and sometimes she loses ugly. So i thought it was. I thought it was a growth match for her especially in a slam where we've seen things get very complicated for her again. She did not have her her best stuff but she also didn't have any drama in this match. So i think that's impressive than yes. Azarenka straight sets in a match that i probably would have said would would go three in a victory over clara. Toss and I just wanna be clear. One of my aces of the day was over. Two and a half sets and astro rank ottosson. So i very much agreed with you. That was that was an ally took out of the day. Yeah and and. I will say while while i did listen to your excellent contenders podcast. With jeff sackman. I did not listen to that. One so i did actually.

"Or you know the guys who can play front foot tennis. No it's not but his ability develop plan b. plan c. plan d. it works regardless of surface. And yeah tommy. Paul did not play a bad match. Twenty winners against forty six unforced. I think is a testament to just how hard it is to hit a winner against medvedev but again medvedev advances in his match versus palca. That's just has all of the recipe to be a super super exciting match any final thoughts on this one. Yeah i think tommy paul played. Well i just want to say that. I don't think he played bad because it. Yeah you look at that number. It's ugly my you know what i was noticing in the rallies is that he was getting nothing to attack. That's another thing that makes medvedev so difficult is that not only. Is he keeping the ball in the court. He's he's keeping it deep like novak would and it just felt like honestly whoever was the aggressor was actually losing fairly consistently in this match. But the problem was that. Tommy yes neil had a shot tolerance edge but he was getting nothing to attack. And that's why he he only had twenty three winners. To all the unforced errors. It just didn't feel like a bad match for him. I think medvedev was just good. Yeah no he takes away which you wanna do best. And then he's got that serve and then he can do all the other little things as well. it was a good performance for medvedev. Also i really hope tommy. Paul gets a good draw at the french in the coming years because i really think he can do some damage garin aspect to it works just like you're waiting for that break through. It's going to happen eventually. Could not agree with you more. But it's funny because the title of this podcast is going to be american men. Excuse me clay court specialists. We talked about two american men who have lost here on court to start. We'll get to the one two or successful later. On in the podcast. Let's flip gears now. Talk about the women. A little bit in particular serena williams and she's yet to really be tested You know thus far and you always wanna see her tested early on in an event because when she does get tested if she gets through that first test then you start to worry if you're the rest of the field because you really got a knock off early. Otherwise she's ended up in the quarterfinals semifinals finals of these slams. That's just the sort of competitor she is and she got that test. Today against boozer s q ultimately advances six three five seven. Six one. Your thoughts on serena today. This is a benefit for her long-term right. Yeah absolutely. I mean boozer ness. Nephew was such a such a wall. was such an amazing counter striker and just her anticipation she just seemed to be so on balance and She absorbed serena's power really really well. And as a result like serena just had to be really really good. In order to to beat a boozer nascar. And you know it was on serena's racket but that doesn't mean it wasn't easy for her So i agree. I thought she got a good physical test. Good mental tests here and i. I have one concern. But i wanna let you respond. I know i appreciate. That's why you're the best in the business Tied for the best But look seventy five percent of her first-serve points one sixty percent of her second. Serve points one. She was broken twice in. You know saved off five of the seven point she faced. She converted five of the fourteen. Break points she had twenty six. Against twenty seven unforced errors again. It wasn't the best serena williams but the way she responded to take that third..

"So let me ask you let me ask you sort of the big picture question. I asked to Chanda and you can accept or reject but is it possible the favorite going in on the women's side is almost a heavier favorite than the than vents. It's a big bold statement, but I hear you and I may I see where you're coming from only because of the kind of weirdness that we're experiencing heading into this French Open. It's not unless you know, obviously you talk about covid-19. The change in the calendar for this year and for me, the biggest thing is that clay was always snuck into this part of the Season, you know, it was always a quick transition. I think that back in the you know, april-may whenever it was where the French Open kind of stamped their place in on the calendar in September. I don't think we really knew how what would play out before that right? And now that we're here we realized that there was not the typical clay Court Season, you know beforehand before the French Open that we normally had. So a lot of these players have not had that time to prepare them unless they took off and said decided to skip the US Open and you know only prepare for the French and and prepare for the clay. So for me, it's it really depends on on the player found and you know for hello. Obviously, she was not at the US Open she is, you know, a a natural clay courter in a lot of ways. She has a ton of clay-court titles and of course has birth One in Paris. If not, you know been a semi-finalist and it's very for me. It's very important that somebody who has a lot of clay experience and who just feels comfortable on the surface. I feel like we'll have the biggest Advantage here, you know, because someone who's now or someone who's coming from the hard courts in New York are is going to feel a little rushed in preparation for this month. So I'm sort of with you when think about it not respect. I mean when you think about who has the the most natural ability and the most experience and comfort on the clay. It's definitely helped, of course at all. Yeah, I mean, I think the clay-court season was was truncated in terms of time. We we only had players were only playing one tune-up event, which was the most cases was Rome. It's also a strange clay-court season in that it's a different time of year. And I think one thing we're going to be talking a lot about certainly on tennis channel in the broadcast is the fact that you know, the clay month of October 8th the clay of May and the conditions are going to be much different. It's going to be whether it's going to be colder. It's going to be you know, in theory that the fact that we're going to have some night matches are going to change things going to get darker the Suns going to go down, you know more than two hours. The sunset is more than two hours earlier on October 1st, and it is in June 1st in Europe. So I think these conditions are really going to suck be different. I mean at some level it's Clay court tennis and Clay is clay and Ralph is Rafa. He knows that says Channel. We're talking about he knows the court which I think is an advantage. We don't talk about enough. It's got to be a huge deal to, New Jersey. That six of your seven matches are going to get played on the same court where you've played more than a hundred times and you know the dimensions and you know, how much space there is and you know the path from the locker room..

"Hello everybody happy while wherever you are on this glorious year revision we can came under your Eurovision Song contest fan you. I think you're even begin to it this year. Weren't you in in Rotterdam so? Have you been coping without the prospect of any sort of live dies than well getting Easter? Now Joel tennis being canceled Irvine being cancelled. Yeah I had tickets for the first time and it's law it was council but hopefully out next year and we had celebration on on the TV last night and had some Swedish food and some cocktails to kind of raise a bit of a glass to what what never happened. But but yeah I think I think you were watching us. Well Joe. You're right yes I was. I catch Lubbock came. I'm going to hold my hand up here. Johnny Logan he comes on the TV and have no idea who he is by turns out. He's he's pretty much the go of of the on contests Mariah a bit. Like the Federa of of your vision life. If you don't tennis you you at least know the name federal. Maybe Johnny Logan could could be a bit like that but yeah. I was quite surprised. You shouldn't you've never heard of him. He's one well three times twice as a singer songwriter. Say He is the kind of the winningest person in in your vision. I guess you could say but yeah maybe actually we can do a European podcast as well. But let's let's go to tennis because we're going to be looking at the Italian. Upn and top eight movements. The happened in rave the last few decades. And perhaps I should lead on this one job because I'm going start with a moment featuring the man himself rapper. One of surprise well yes and listeners. And said he'd rougher bear with us because we all see you're not the end of the alternative Casey's season I mean let's be honest because light Madrid. Rome is Dallas. Hi I think he's one like what nine titles zero something ludicrously say is as as hardly a surprise to kind of see him featured this list say yes came. More is was the first moment. We're WE'RE GONNA be reliving. Well I thought we have liquor two thousand five. Which was you know I play horses and really where he takes. The kind of took it by storm. He won the first time. Yeah his first of nine titles. I think back in five and so he came up against Korea. Who at the time I guess was probably the most to stop ish claycourter of over air or at least one of them very face competitor for sure but the final was another five-set Masters Final five-set thriller? It was over five hours long. Which if you think about now if they were doing that consistently Austin Final Monte Carlo Madrid. That would just be insane. I mean I actually am believe that they used to do this to be called with the but yeah it was. It was a real ding. Dong to one of the better word. Joe Six four three six six three full six and then rougher one at seven six on a law set tiebreak but think about this much. Rougher was a double breakdown and fifth say. Who's three lockdown Sakaria? Really could've gone on us up momentum going away and one but I think really is kind of weakest point throughout his whole career was was his mental strength and he kind of collapsed that combined with with. Rafa you know. Obviously he's attitude his diehard shoot. Never giving up. He was on like a sixteen match winning streak at this point and say obviously he. He had a lot of belief in his game. And but I think Korea would be very devastated after this loss at I think. Actually in his post-match she interceded say this was one of the hardest defeats of his career. I think it was interesting to is. I think Korea probably getting into this matching gains clay season. Yeah he's probably thinking. I'm beatable on clay call. There is no one else out there better than me and who comes along on the Dow eighteen year old teenage eh relatively unheard of and I think this match proved that even when Korea was playing his absolutely best tennis possible. That was someone else out there better than him and I think he was kind of disheartened by that and I think this much great show us. You said mentally he you know he wasn't as strong as some of his other competitors or I think when you're three love up Double in the fifth set us really should be closing that match out and he wasn't able to do that. I think that's one of the things we might associate with a player who you know as brilliant as he is in Korea kind of on the mental side of things. I don't think you could put him up there with the greats and I kind of look at this match. I look at the two thousand four French Open final as well where he Gaston Gaudio. In the final game was five sets but again crucially he was two sets up. He was six love. Six three up was unable to close out the the match. And you know he's probably one of these as you put in the category of greatest players never have one. Ud wonder if if he hit if he had won if he had won this final in in Rome beaten Dow that would have given him the confidence indicate and reinforce that belief that he was and he was at the time the best the best clay court player in the world. I think obviously that loss against scout and then going into this match against Rafeh just his. His mental side of things just wasn't subscription. A Rafeh had beaten him in the Monte Carlo. Final just a couple of weeks before this so again he knew he was up against and he kind of let it. Let it slip away to be honest with you and Yeah so I just thought you know. Obviously this was this was a great match and it was symbolic because again you have this is like the birth of of Raffarin. His kind of play. Call dominance in this. Totally kind of pulsing off of his. You know the best steak or two at the time we had people like Carlos Moya one Ferrara Cowdrey. Kara in a sort of all very good establish trae which just as soon as Raff kind of started working his magic. He'd I guess it kind of became almost impossible. Perhaps to argue against for being the best. Geico

How to Begin to Restart, with Mark Ein

"Welcome to no challenges remaining. I am Ben Rothenberg on this week's show. I am joined by Mark On. Who was the owner of the city open tennis tournament on the ATP and W T tour which is held annually in Rookery Park in Washington DC is a terminus Ben at the same venue for fifty years as a big standing tradition in the summer tennis calendar in the United States and it's also potentially the next tennis term on the calendar with a bunch of determines before it having been canceled is only April but already we know that there will be no European clay court season at least pre Wimbledon and all the grass season has gone so Washington suddenly stands in April as the next big landmark on the tennis horizon with being the first big combined? Atp WTI tournament still on the schedule currently so with that in mind? We talk mark about what it's been like this while is uncertainty different contingencies. That are being talked about in the tenth world and hopefully you'll find this conversation illuminating in these strange murky times. Here's mark very happy to be joined on the show today by mark on who is. The owner of the city opened the Washington tennis tournament Washington. Summer tennis tradition I believe is your slogan eighteen. Wto tours the annual stuff every late July early August although this year obviously there's a lot of uncertainty in the air so mark. Thank you very much for being on here and chatting in this in this weird moment. We're having appreciate it. Always always great to chat. And and Ben. That's more than a slogan it is. It's true no it's true. It is washing summer tennis tradition. I one of the first times I went to the city opened which was send the League Mason Tennis Classic Back in the Ninety S. I want actually WANNA radio contests for tickets for some. I forget what the Trivia question was by some trivia question and they asked me which days I wanted tickets forge session for. They gave me like all possible sessions and I picked the final Michael. Chang wanted that year and remember that so I remember that one and I might started mine. Vomit tournament is a ball kid when I was twelve years old. So for Eddie dibbs and Harold Solomon engage. All short guys like myself a shot. I thought that they might actually be on the court someday. But that didn't happen to turn this into Eddie. Dibbs podcast briefly. I believe I believe he was the one that came up with the term Bagel that sort of his lasting like they were they were the Bagel brothers. Eddie dibbs Herald Sun Herald was from Silver Spring Maryland. Down the street so there's Great Danes as Gray Days. So you own the tournaments. Since last year the term it was in danger of moving out of DC and it was for sale in you bought it and kept it in DC. Which I many others are grateful for. I'm just curious how. How is your first year owning attorney? What was that first experience? Like as you've been in tennis for a long time and other other serves two roles but was that experience like and I guess looking forward a little bit. What kind of stuff we are looking forward to for for twenty twenty. I'm it was. It was fantastic and we really had is a great fifty year old man. It's the fifth biggest tournament the United States one of only the only ATP five hundred in the United States and one of only five combined events and You know it was a really terrific event but we had this vision for how we can take to to totally new level and so even though we got it we literally only got control of it. In March I thank so it was a real sprint to get it ready. You know I think we did we really. I think revolutionized the event can complete change in the site. The Food and beverage the player experience. Everything we really wanted to touch. Every single component of the event our motto was that we would never say. We're doing something because that's the way it was done in the past where we're going to try to thank. Outta do things differently and you know. The results were incredible. We broke every record. The tournaments ever had everything shattered them on and what was really great. Was that when we started the week? It look good but it didn't look like it was going to break records that people came to the site and went to the new food area and tried the food people like Jose. Andres and people locally. We had the best ice cream plays July. The best coffee plays the best burger plays. Moei came and did stuff of through word of mouth it. Just people started coming incoming. We ended up selling out seven of the eleven sessions. And I think what it just showed to me. Was that tennis as we know from events like Indian Wells and the US Open and a whole lot of events when it's done well a high level people respond tenants fans common. They love it but then other people come. I think that was really rewarding to just see this great reaction and our team work really hard and so it's really gratifying. And then yeah we didn't I mean we we were. We are planning on building on last year. We have a whole set of new food and beverage partners new seating areas a whole bunch of stuff that we were about to launch the campaign to talk to people about in Indian Wells and obviously that was the first event to be cancelled and we also put a pause on our marketing efforts. It seems like in the current state of the world. That's not the most important thing but whenever we pick it up hopefully this year or whenever it is we're going to build on last year and just keep building and growing and We have really high really high goals for that sort of the moment. I think that everybody in tennis will point to is sort of when things got real and the corona virus situation for tennis getting cancelled which has happened very shortly before that terminus supposed to start the day before quality started. What was your reaction to that news and I guess had you had already been on your radar from from the city open perspective before then or was that really the wake up call moment. I think that was kind of I mean. There is a series of you. Know a series of things happen that heightened your sensitivity to it But that was maybe the tablets to saying. Oh Wow this is different back as soon as it happened. I texted one of my best friend who happens to own an NBA team. And I sent him a note and I said this isn't just for. Tennessee is big for all of sports. Because you know at that point no one had cancelled any. It wasn't just the percentage of that. It was the first major sporting event to be full. And Yeah and here. We are today. So yeah that whole time and and you know Indian Wells really is a mecca for everyone in the tennis world the whole global tennis community flocks there every year. And it's almost five hundred thousand kids almost big as the French Open or close to beg so some of that size and scale gets cancelled. It's opened a lot of people's lives up to the issue. We're dealing with what once you're once. You're that sort of alert happens. Then I guess. Obviously all the children's center immediately after that our media on standby like Miami Charleston. Houston but for you what. What was your thought process on how I'm watching? The ripples of this work their way through the calendar. You know it's so interesting ban. I mean that was not even I guess it was just about a month ago and you just today. We know so much more 'cause we're all quasi obsessed with every little detail of this if you can put yourself back to where we were a month ago. We had no idea about tests vaccines and treatments and social distancing. I don't think that at the time we necessarily at all thought. Oh this is gonNA endanger the prospects of hosting. The city opened obviously enters. Your mind was totally unknown. What we were dealing with a month ago and obviously all know so much more today but back then we thought. Maybe it's a possibility but we definitely didn't think that it was a foregone conclusion. What does this last month? Ben Like for you. What is it like sort of from this event? Obviously everyone's lives period. You're staying indoors like everybody else. I'm sure but what is your just from the from the Tennis City Open Van Vantage Point? What is it been like for this month or so? Yeah I mean look. The first thing that I focused on was just make sure my family is safe and healthy and that we were set up in a way so that everyone in the family would be okay. That was the first thing and then frankly bend the the next thing I had to focus on. Is that we have you know we own our own a lot of a bunch of companies and I really wanted to make sure that and it was clear this was going to be a rough economic time and so I wanted to make sure the people who work in those companies were in good shape as possible and I'm really proud that as of today we haven't had zero layoffs furloughs salary reduction just because we've been laser focused on figuring out how to. Mirol in pretty good shape and had resources but also just really protecting the people who work in those companies was my next priority so even I'm not going to the office. I'm working. I think I work pretty hard and I'm working harder now than ever just trying to do that. And then you know and then there is a lot of work around planning for the city open and it's different because it's not in front of us. Obviously I wanted to make sure the team that works on. It is safe so we were very early and having people work from home. And now we're just scenario planning bandit some you know. There's really four scenarios one is the event goes off as usual To is is that it goes off without fans which is the topic of a Lotta conversation in a lot of sports. Three is a hybrid where it goes off but there are some fans an enforce. Obviously it's cancelled and You know we're doing everything we can to problem solve and be creative to find a way that we can do it somehow but it only is going to happen if we can assure that it's safe for people And so just a huge amount of work going into China. Figure that out.

Tennis adapting to the new normal: French Open 'unilateral' September Switch; 'Flushing-Garros' slams back-to-back?; Laver Cup & ATP/WTA responses analysed; 'Excusez-moi?' Players find out on social media; Tips for fans to cope with no tennis

"Everyone and welcome to the passing Shaw. The tennis poke caused by fans four fans with your host Jolan Kim. Today on the show. We're going to be bringing you up to speed on all the latest developments of the corona virus hit tennis season including the French controversial date change the ATP and WBZ's movement to a collective approach decision making and how players are keeping on their training routines in home. Kim I find this all very surreal. It could have been Indian Wells. Men's Fund will stay. We could have been previewing the AP we could have been. Who knows. Maybe looking forward to Andy Murray in back onto a tennis court but unfortunately sadly all that is on hold seemingly indefinitely a you you in high spirits. Nassir to Joe. I mean I've just it just keeps getting from bad worse doesn't There is just as old ask for control. We company do anything we have to sort of hate for the best and I mean there are things we can do. We can follow advice and stay inside of course but yeah. I would give anything right now just to have. Tennis is a poker it like whoever it is I will. I will accept the crappiest final in Tennessee straight. Means we have lives for again right. I find it quite funny. Actually because even though we no life tennis to kind of talk over there still seems to be actually more tennis news to actually To actually catch up because you know we still had a lot of information. Come at us from the tennis world. some some more surprising than others. And obviously we'll get onto that. Let's just give our listeners on ourselves. Actually a pair of the of the lay of the landscape at the moment the Toys R. Off Indefinitely Think. Officially at the moment they've been suspended to the seventh of June which is basically ruled out. Oh Clay Court tennis. So we've had all the tournaments in Madrid Rome Strasbourg Rats Munich astro Geneva Leon who whites from the calendar ranking points have been frozen as well so yeah we've got no. I got life headed to come to full with T. But when this was kind of announced I think the big the big talker boy it just the state the announcement was the that the ATP at W. Ta said now is the time to act unilaterally. Kim But in unison. Yeah so I mean they overeat out what they said. And I'll see if our listeners can notice what's missing so auden all decisions related to the impact of the creative. Irs Require Consultation and review with the stakeholders in the game view that is shared by ATP WPA the ANC tennis Australia and the USDA. So Joe. What's missing from US announcement. I think that I think maybe the French tennis federation a missing. I I have no idea why that is the case. They could have been because they went compete. Ray who can just reschedule tournament at the top of a heart without telling anyone our consulting anyone involved in which is going to be a might have something to do with it. I think I've eaten. What bold move. I mean understand that they obviously won't let on to happen at some point and is obviously wasn't going to really happen you know saying it's the it's the next. Grand Slam in the calendar but the decision they took was just so so rash and they've moved to the most awkward position arguably in the calendar. You know just all for the USA. But I think there's about six days in between the end of the US Open. Stop the French Open. This is all hypothetical oversee. None of this may happen and from what I've read from some circles. It's unlikely that we'll probably have any tennis the rest of the year. I don't know I mean. I'm hoping that's not the case. Obviously but all of the kind of ramifications. Ooh Who's GonNa play what what's going to happen like might be null and void because they might white everything a. Let's let's say hypothetically that it does. Let's say the French will go ahead in September? I think the dates they have said at the moment it will take place is September twentieth to the Fourth of October. First of all clay-court Teddy's at that time. That's not going to be fun is it? Yeah it's going to be very cold. I mean even wrote on Garza's on end of May beginning of genie's they can have some terrible weather and to be fed they do have the reef but also there wouldn't be any legal tournaments in in-involved say people would be coming in like fresh off the hard courts Without any practice unless they choose to focus just on the clay and took themselves off to some challenger events or futures the because I think those things they could probably arrange you know in advance kind of place at the time to kind of set them out for like practice. I think they're easier to kind of just put on a shorter natives. But it's just yeah. I mean what you do for example if you're if you're a rapper. He's defending the US. Open defending the French shape in this year. Does he just play both and hope he can defend both? Does he pick one over the other. It's just the strangest decision and we've never seen this happened before but it's is just I mean. Would that be the most remarkable achievement if someone one base of as black tobacco? We've talked about someone winning the French Open and Wimbledon boxy. There's still a gap of several weeks between those two but and that's obviously not being done an awful lot so this would be some fate if it was a chief. Yeah I mean certainly. I think it's still by the the PA. The calendar is obese. Like a back to back grand slams. We've got the sunshine double. It did well by. Abby is you've got the I coined it on twitter at the the flushing guerrillas days It's certainly that that would be a challenge for I mean for a lot of players especially for someone like Nidal. He is the defending champion in both of them. Both events would be taken enormous toll on the body. And you know we've seen you know the big three that approach to the season to take kind of a stripped back approach pick and choose events and it does it does bring up the question of you know if that does go ahead and you have back to back Grand Slams. Is it possible to debate for which you have to watch? You have to be really refocused and just say I'm going to do one or the other and you think that potentially from the Dow I would just focus on on the French Open as it would pay me to say given defended the US Open champion. Ba Yeah it feels like just focus on on one. I mean he would be the history again at the friendship going. Thirteen to add. It would be great if he could win at different times of the year when the conditions that may be different because that would just I guess ultimately proved that Hey I am totally trae anytime of the year. I will be there at the top so you'd have to think he would go for the French over the US. But I mean another thing. Is that depending on. When or if the season comes back like players will have had a long spell of time. You know in competition say they might be much fresher healthier and injury free so it might not matter too much in terms of the toll on their bodies as if this is happening at the end of animals is not that we would see this kind of contrast normally it might be the impact might be lessened somewhat because of that. But I mean who say. We haven't mentioned that it will say clashes with the Labor cop which is technically an exhibition right. It's not like a proper event but basically all the top names you know have signed up and committed to playing and all the tickets have been sold. Yeah sold out. It's being held in Boston. Which is I guess. A logical place to for them to get off the Apron said exhibition senior team world. Lovely what will I mean tires on surely going to pick that over the friendship? And but it's

So special today you know when when when fairies start to play well pay stock to believe more they are trying more and I think it's also surreal Neatly in the last ten years there are lots of challenges of the future so the young player can play a lot of comment. And don't talk too much so that's really important. That makes a huge difference just having tournament on your doorstep and the cost a pretty low. Yeah yeah that's important. You know when a young player as to travel a lot. A lot of expense soy's School to have a lot of tournaments. You can go by car anoc of time. So it's it's good. It's good to have a lot of tournaments in our country and our Muslim Clay-court. Yes mostly on clay cool by the Easter also. On awkward there is future Lange asking care have five six challenger on our court and I think are on future Soit. Okay tell me used to be that hundred sixteen the world. You're quite young still now. You're thirty six for my research career. Yeah Yeah So. You're young coach. Many years you've been coaching and all this is the fifth year.

"clay court" Discussed on Absurd Hypotheticals

"We over think dumb questions. So you don't have to. I'm your host markets later and I'm joined here today by Chris Ye and Ben Storms. Say Hi guys. Hey I'm Chris. Hey I'm Ben we're going to go ahead and dive right into our question for this week. which is what if all sports were on ice? Then take it away. Yeah so I decided to look at tennis. I just thought that it will be really funny honey mostly but also also just from a physics perspective because tennis involves you know like I. I made main component of tennis is the the way that a thing is impacting. The surface I figured there'd be some fun games there so I started looking. I sort of the the rule book of tennis and a Fundamental Rebecca Tennis. So it's like a like a seventeen page. PDF with like twenty pages of Appendices. And it's actually it's very precise about how you you make. Tennis court has like all these like very exact measurements of the sectors of the court and like it talks about like like the the dimensions of the cord supports the net. And like all this kind of south. It's very precise except the one thing is not precise about is what the court is made out of. It actually hasn't mentioned that at all. Which is actually that comes up? There are different different kinds of tennis courts. You know there's there's grass ones and clay ones and like the hard top ones and there's you know major tournaments play all of them all of them work differently the all oh react differently and they all play differently and really the big. The big impact is sort of how fast the court plays. and that's not necessarily like the literal speed But more of the perceived speed. So there's there's really two factors so one can't actually literally be faster When you head tennis ball in the court in that moment where the ball was in kind of the court? The friction causes it slowdown so the the International Tennis Federation ATF. They had testing Until like Ana clay-court a shot loses about forty three percent of its horizontal speed on impact. So like I have. Our shot will go out like thirty eight but on fresh grass. That's more like thirty three percent. So this like forty five miles per hour after impact and so when you're playing on grass wind up having less time to react to To a shot coming in because of that speed difference and got him the impact that is the angle of the bounce after impact so in that moment whereas in contact basically you know what was happening as the bottom of the ball starts moving slower ads. Toss Ben and some of that horizontal velocity turns into vertical velocity because of it so on a higher friction surface like clay. It's GONNA bounce higher higher up which gives you once again more time to react to the shot because you you know it will be in the air for longer so there's also so so that's all based on the coach and the friction. There's also something I learned about just during this call the Coefficient of restitution. What's which is basically how bouncy a surfaces so so what is actually it's the the ratio of athletes? Like if you have something hanging object or I guess to objects heading if the ratio of the final velocity so after the impact like once leaves to the initial velocities speed comes in after collision and so that will also affect the bounce height because if something has a if something has a higher weight higher Kobe restitution. It'll be faster coming off the ground after a balances so somewhere thing. Clay bouncier abounds higher. I also just realize how excited I got about learning that there's a thing called Coefficient of restitution detail how excited literally anybody else would be coefficient. I don't know about definitely notice that yeah that was entirely legitimate that. How's dodgers be placating? Ben Trying to make it sound like what he's saying. That was like Ou know legit excitement I sadly had to mostly the ignore the coalition of restitution because I could not find good numbers on it all right so I don't know if you'll pass my actually I actually tried to figure it out myself at least somewhat by so there is a a training drill that people use to like train for for sports where you basically drop a tennis ball. We have someone drop a tennis ball from like a distance away from you and you don't basically as soon as they drop it you take off and you try to grab it off the bounce. Basically so it's like a combination of reaction action time and burst and like hand eye coordination and I found video of people doing it on a tennis court on a hockey rink and on like I'd like a gem floor and I was trying to like figure out like how far it had fallen and all that and I couldn't I couldn't make it work so I'm sorry I I tried to. I really try to do it. I've been there before I've been there. Were the numbers don't exist. He tried to do it. And then you're like Oh there's a reason they don't exist because to. Yeah I mean actually if if you could if you if I had time to do it myself a pretty easy because he would just have to like drop from the same height and do it consistently and do that and then you look at the video radio and figure it out. But I didn't have time to do that. Yeah I've heard that a lot of times we're like I'll be depending on what Dan prepping. I'm like Oh to figure this out for real. I need to use an integral zero due on the night before that. I don't do the inaugural public three days ahead of Mike All Right. Let's let's break out the math problem for me. It wasn't so much.

He's GonNa have the all time grand slams when it's all said and done don't tell me about primes and all this bullshit problem with these might go problem with Jovovich Oh colleges. He looks like an accountant. He looks like Nick Nurses Daughter's boyfriend that she dumped for being too boring that was that one really deep yeah no like really this dude does not look like an athlete at length dude. He's got lens got the lymph big time length yeah. He's from Serbia right. Yes let Serbia have a goat. I don't think I don't feel I don't have to go why not and yet and also jokers a cool nickname jokers pretty cool. I had to Google how to spell his name no less than like seven hundred times even though spelled right in front of me on the thing but I I still it's one of those names like Shoshefsky like coach. Even if you see it and look at it you still gonNA fuck. It doesn't add up. There should be like a club deejay. That's just named D._J.. Oh Kovic ooh member Kenny Mayne back in the they just Wayne Brady half the Yolk Yovich. Oh that's pretty good line yeah so I think you you're in on the go. No no I'm not a joker fan. I was rooting for him today just so that he could bring Sampras back into the discussion. Yes I like Rafa. I I love him with the Clay Court master the gallon master doll I like the back and forth because there were a couple Wimbledon's that raph a beat Federer right Khurana making that one thousand eight you best match ever yeah I didn't watch it but no it was commonly regarded as the best mismatch I've ever seen so many like your tennis fans I actually they're very respectful. It wasn't like a U._F._C. or if you're trying to talk hockey on twitter it was hey you're wrong but we're not going to do it in a mean way. If you ever want to go down and really weird rabbit hole is you look up like tennis follies because their budget tennis players that specialize in these like pro-am Games where they're allegedly like very funny while they play. I make jokes but the idea of a joke to a tennis player doesn't really line up with what everyone else thinks. The joke is right so they'll like hit the ball inbounds and then they'll tell the umpire. No I hit that about right and then it'll take a bow good job nailed it good job. Yes we had that Serena lost which I guess she's still she's still I feel like Serena's once an always go. I'm just saying this because I am not prepared to deal with any blowback from talking shit about three. It's she scares me more than the BA the beehive or the Jelly Bean Jelly beans are the swift swift boats they call John Veterans and doesn't doesn't what's her name Arianna ground. Doesn't she have a big hive. No the grandstand the the Grandes no okay no probably we're not so sure that was good wieners or something yeah the screeners we also had on Friday the take if you didn't listen to take these were electric and I'm still buzzing off Blake of the year but we had the Russell Westbrook Chris. Paul Trade happened happened after we taped take eat so now that we've had a few days to sleep on it any change. I actually think both teams one of those. What about have you heard from him about C._P._I.? Three that's just a that's more like a <unk> silent like how I feel like. He doesn't yeah keeps lakes. Don't concern themselves with the opinions Paul Portal's. Oh Blake Bortles. Oh yes. He was heartbroken so he was heartbroken. He fucked up. I mean that was he was the people's Blake for very very long time <hes> but that's that's. I feel like you're once and future. People's plate like I'm not ready to write Blake bortles off just oh he's got to earn it. He's been counted out before. I think he'll be just fine..

"This is right in your tennis, wheelhouse, of course this time of year. And at the French Open, we had both the expected Rafael Nadal, winning his twelve title, just in Paris, which is obviously insane. Unfathomable. And Ashley Barty as party, the Australian who took off two years from tennis to become, I guess, a professional cricketer, although she had no experience in that sport has returned obviously to the tennis fold has been rising steadily through the ranks last couple years. She wins on the women's side. What did you make Bharti's victory? Why loved it actually? Because I think that this is one of the interesting things when it's almost sometimes you look at these conversations, and I try really hard not to fall into narrative. Just watch the matches and see what's happening. There's nothing better than tennis in that regard as well, because the because the renting's are so dynamic. And so you had all this period where it was like, oh, well, you know, Serena's winning all the time, there's nothing that no competition. But if you watch the women's game there are plenty of different players out there. And I think it's really great to when you come up to you come off the hard court surface at after the AUSSIE open. And after. The two American masters one thousand then you get to clay and all of a sudden McClay on McClay court. She start seeing different players emerge Ashbury has been rising for a while now. And you're wondering when she was going to sort a cry crossover because she's playing so well, and that title is there for the taking and she got ended down on the mid site, as we said, you know, when I was growing up when you were growing up, there was Roy Emerson, who had twelve total grand slam singles titles. That was the most for the men. It seemed unapproachable for longtime six of his titles coming Australian that seem ridiculous. And now we've gotten a Dow who's up to what is it sixteen total eighteen eighteen total? I'm sorry, Roger's got twenty right. And Djokovic got what fifteen. Has has Raphael del ruined, the French Open, or, or is he gives us more reason to appreciate it? Oh, he makes it better. You think? So more reason to appreciate him in makes it better. And here's the reason why I mean because once again, we talk about these things in narrative, and it does feel inevitable. It certainly by the time Rafa got done with Dominic team you were you were thinking, oh my goodness. He just runs through. But he really didn't he he, he was destroyed in the Australian Open by Novak Djokovic. And I don't mean that to be hyperbolic, he got beaten straight-sets, and it was his worst loss at a major major final ever. And you're looking at this until you've got Djokovic has an opportunity to hold all four majors again for the second time in his career. He's already proven that he could crush, though, which he did. He goes into the quake court season. It does not playing particularly well because he had to withdraw at Indian Wells against against Roger so he's his health isn't great. His greatest rival joke had taken care of them. Then he goes to the surfaces where he dominates. And Fabio Fanini takes him out at money Carlo, and he loses to team and loses sits pass and in Madrid and Barcelona. So he's going into he's going into Rome, without a title than twenty eight for twenty nineteen. So it's not like this was this was giving. He finally starts to find himself a little bit. He goes out he beats joke bitch in the final in Rome. So now you're starting to think, okay. Maybe RAF is there. And then he turns it on, and that it wasn't a given that he was gonna come into the clay court season come into rolling girls and gives dominate everybody. You have made an argument that, that both joke of his end team. We're playing. Better than Rafa in that tournament. But once that tournament starts, all of a sudden, he turns that light switch on. We're speaking with Howard, Bryant columnist and senior writer for yes, PIN the magazine who's been covering tennis for so long and so well. And I see what you're saying about new Dell but, you know, the fact is, he's won twelve of these things, which is ridiculous. Exactly. Ed Ed, it's a little bit to me like the way that, you know, Bob Beamon kinda ruined the long jump for a long time with when he broke the record by twenty two inches in nineteen sixty eight it's, it's, it's a little bit like Sergei Buca, the poll fault. It's just like when somebody pulls away so far ahead of the rest of the crowd, the peleton, however, you wanna put it. It does it somehow diminish the event or is that silly wave? Look, again it why don't think it chilly. But I, I don't wanna use words like lazy, and I don't wanna I don't wanna talk like that to me. But what it does sound to me is that we, we've become a bit jaded. I think we still do we still enjoy the journey of the games. I mean, for example, this is the exact same arguments, which in gears for a second. This is the exact same argument. We were hearing with the warriors. Oh the ruin the game three into and finals. Yeah. And I'm not saying that they got the straight up because obviously they had in your east. But this is the reason why you watch the game. This is the reason why you play the game. You know, the ROY the warriors one championships when their opponents were injured. They went in twenty fifteen when tire you're having an Kevin love were both hurt. They win six games. Then, of course, you've got the twenty sixteen final which was amazing because dream on get suspended and you had to go through all of those things. And so. To me. I still watch the game. I still find a lot of joy. And in that journey, and how the championships are one and how they're lost. And if you're only focus on the end result, sure it looks boring because the end result can be predictable. However, I remember time and you remember this is well, when people were talking about I the patriots headed dynasty, and then they didn't win for a few years, only because they didn't win the championship. Imitates was supposedly did years, ten years, exactly ten years. But in those ten years, they went to what six AFC title games, and they went to one Super Bowl and Kyushu roles in lost them. Both they left to the giant, so it's not it's not like they weren't a great team. We fall into this idea that if the end result is what we expected. Or if the end result doesn't produce then we can create the labeling them, so saying I like watching the game and seeing what's see what happens. And if you watch that NBA final. Was nothing boring about it. I wanted to see could the Toronto Raptors actually close. And they did. And believe me when you saw that game six after blowing game five at home and limitation game. It wasn't a guarantee that they were gonna I don't know what happens if that thing, though, seven I found it. I still find it to be a really compelling, journey your true fan, you're better. You're better man than I am. I'm not Bob Ryan, not Brian. But I'm but I still love watching the game. Among us is now a he, he goes everyday for those of who are listening, don't know Howard knows this. I know this, but, but Bob Ryan will drive six hours round trip to go to a high school basketball game interest. He, he will not. He'll see hill, watch basketball till the cows come home. But, you know, for me with, with men's tennis now it's part of, it's kind of a microcosm of the larger issue and I was fascinated. You probably were aware of this, but Chris Clarry from the New York Times. Great tennis writer. There tweeted before the French Open that there is only one man in the world, I believe it is under the age of twenty eight who is so much appeared in a grand slam. Singles final, and it was dominant team. And they're still only one man who's under. Maybe it's insane. How the old guys have been dominating? When he pointed at the same time, I believe, for with his eleven and McEnroe right with his eight head one all of their grandson, singles titles, by the age of twenty five both of them, and they were both retired by twenty six. Also, not forget that we're talking about three arguably the three greatest players ever, you can certainly make a case for that. But it's just been going on for so long when you see I mean when when is this going to end when somebody? Big enough and bad enough to beat him. And I don't begrudge those players at all. I mean you, you know, you gotta if you wanna be the best you gotta beat the best, right? And this I don't understand this whole notion that they somehow the sports are being. We watch the game Jeremy dominance. I wanna see the do you wanna see two teams eight and play for championship? Mercy to video Cortines knock the ball around. I don't wanna see that now. I love the grape. I've said I feel like a little turnover is good. You know, little fresh blood is good being. That's what I, I wish there was. I there isn't one. Exactly. Hey, remember, two thousand nine one Martine photo shows up at the US open, crushes Madonna in the semi final, and peace fetter. They're gonna championship. That's how you do it. Looking Novak that Djokovic Novak Djokovic, twenty eleven comes in these Fedor NBC bell windy championship. This is what you're supposed to do. And I think that again, I really don't wanna sort of the labor this, but I do wonder do we watch. Why are we watching these things if we don't want to see the best of the best of the best? I know that for me when this is over, I'm gonna be real sad about it. Because these are the best tennis players, I've ever seen if you like the sport. And if you love how the game is played in respect the excellence. How can you not wanna watch Serena? And how can you not wanna watch joke, a vision federa, and Madonna, and to see them all at the same time this reminds me of what the old time if you say when I was a kid. Oh, well you should've seen as mantle and the do you know you should've seen those teams play together you should've seen will and and Russell. I'm here for dynasties. I'm not here for sort of. I don't I don't wanna see some eighteen plays six seat in the Stanley Cup like the devils and the kings one year. I wanna see the best of the best place Howard before we let you go, who's gonna win Wimbledon. You're gonna tell me right? You're gonna tell me it's could be Serena and Roger. I you know, we used to we used to say when we were on the old sports reporters. Don't ask me those questions. But obviously, you've got Rodgers got eight of them. Joke vicious defending champion. You know, it's a, you know, when you get to grass the big server show up, so you had rounded me, Richard final. You've had truly three two final. You had Kevin Anderson reach a final last year. So you'd know that you're going to some six foot eight guy out there is going to be blasted aces on the on the grass so met her underestimate that I, I have no feel for this. So I'm gonna go with the defending champion. I'm just gonna say after joking vich left the dominant team. I'm gonna say Novak is favorite. And here we go again at the big three controlling everything Howard Bryant. It's always a pleasure, sir. It's been too long.
