"Realize he had in terms of occasionally coming up with some incredible shot making and little flick lab at one point and sprinting down every ball. And he was everywhere. And it made me think, well, maybe he's maybe rude better than baritone and I probably would have thought baritone who was better than rude. But he was so everywhere, he made baritone he looked slow and lumbering and heavy leg, didn't he? And I'm sure that the tightness and the nerves and freezing was a big part of that. I think baritone is quicker than he was today. And the opportunity might have paralyzed him. That's a possibility. That sounds very dramatic, but lucky was winning, he won two of the first 13 games of the match. It's just not good enough. And look. This quote from me in a couple of quotes from his press conference today. He said, I think he had the best start possible and I helped him. And then he later on he's asked about what happened because referencing back to that mental approach that he wasn't happy with in the previous round against davidovich for cleaner. He said, my game was okay, but mentally I just wasn't into the match at the start. He says here, I don't know what happened today. I'm going to let it pass for a few days and then I'm going to think about what happened. Now it's too soon, but something happened and I'm really not happy about it. And I think what we've what I do trust is that he, I like the fact that already he's owning that and he's going to go away and always think back to his lockdown Instagram Live would Chris Evert of all people where he just you know because that had his ex-girlfriend in it and but you know he was so candid about how he wanted to work on his game. How aware of his weaknesses he was and he will go back and study and figure this out whether he can overcome it is another matter. It's a massive opportunity that he's let slip. I do think it changes the way I feel about him for now. But he can turn it around. Yes, because for now it's a slightly anomalous data point, isn't it? So it's like, okay, let's but we will have it in mind. Absolutely. Next time he's a reference point. But I agree, I love the way he's owned it, and I think that's what's really likeable about him in particular is very self aware what about Casper Ruud and I went in his press conference afterwards. And he was interested in talking about his dad and how their relationship works and they don't get tired of

Another PGA Tour member has defected to the Liv golf invitational series as 23 year old Matthew wolf will play in this week's live tournament in Oregon.

Hang seng index futures just started to trade. They're down about a half of 1%. We had massive gains yesterday the tech index is up 4.7% the hanx index itself was up 2.4%, so it might be natural to see a little give back today. We saw some give back on Wall Street, the rebound in global equity stalled out there. The losses weren't great, though the S&P 500 was down about three tenths of a percent. Some of it was driven by higher oil prices and higher yields because those had been going the other direction during the furious equity rallies last week. Anyway, WTI is still higher this morning in Asia, but yields have stabilized. They're not really doing all that much to yield on a ten year. Is that 3.19% to two year at three O 9.

"Would it be top ten? I don't know. I've been put on the spot. I need some serious 6 months from to come up with a 5. And that 5 is laminated. She did seeds everywhere a favor today and beat Kai kanepi. Oh yeah, she sure did. Is the only person in the world who draws Diane Perry with all respect that I am parry and goes, oh no. You know, I want to dig a strong tech. I wanted Simona Halep. So true. I'm pleased though that Dan parry is not disappeared. You want to watch a lot more of her and Hugo Gaston, if you're into your Friends. I think he plays tomorrow. But then. Decided against onto the men's draw and a few interesting ones today in the men's draw, Carlos alcaraz just in a casual four hour 14 minute epic beating yelling at stroke in 5 sets. Matt was watching or certainly watched a lot of it. What a way for him to introduce himself to the court on crowd map. Yeah, amazing, and they really did take to him, and I think that's one of the things about our careers is that he knows he plays really exciting tennis. I love that. He's, again, he said in his press conference quickly in the Spanish portion that his tennis is dynamic and fun and therefore he thinks that the crowd really, you know, kind of go with him. And that was definitely the energy on court one as he made this comeback against Jan Leno's truth. Because I really thought he was going out to be honest. He was two sets to one down stroop was bringing it in the way that he can when he's serving well and he's just all his momentum is moving forward in the court and he just imposes himself and his power and he looked the much bigger presence. Alcaraz looked quite kind of small compared to strove. And it was almost reassuring in a way to me that alcaraz was struggling on grass because he's so exceptional. He's so exciting and yet it was like Tennessee's natural defenses of a different surface where like, yeah, but you still got to crack this car loss. And of course, he's so brilliant. He did manage to come through and he did sort of get better as the match went on. I think in the end he won it, lots of reasons. One of them was physically. He seemed the physically stronger, even though I've said that about struff being so imposing our crest was just, you know, he's a teenager, isn't he? He had so much energy, even deep in the 5th set. He's now won 5 of his 6, 5 set matches that he's ever played. The only one he lost was that final set tiebreak to bear a teeny in Australia. He's very, very good, even in deciding sets. And I don't think he's cracked grass, you know, he said that there are players in the tournament who are better on grass than he is. He talks a lot about how the movement is still something that he says, it doesn't come in just a day. You can't just crack the movement on graphs in a day. You need time. And he hasn't had that many matches. So that's definitely something to look out for with him. He served exceptionally well. 30 aces, the most he's ever served, I believe. But generally, the one thing I would say is that great players can just suddenly produce something stunning when they need it. And he did that today in the fourth set tie break, he was a mini breakdown, and he came up with the most stunning single handed on the run flick backhand pass to get him to two one in that tiebreak. It would have been three zero down without it. I watched the replay 6 times in a year. Couldn't believe my eyes, Harry, how he managed it. And it's little just little moments like that. It's just greatness. Okay, he's still got to achieve everything we think is going to achieve, but just I've seen great players do those things and he's already doing them. I can't help thinking that this was the banana skin. The early round problem and having found a way through, imagine if it dries up and he gets his feet under him. Thank you closer for nini next. I mean, that's tough. That's a tough draw. And he's comfortable on grass. And we've seen him cause Murray problems here years ago. But if he can, if you can just stay in the event long enough and not be injured and get comfortable. And the more match time he gets, that's learning time, isn't it? So, and because he's so young, he doesn't have to worry so much about the hours on the clock. You feel like it's just all right in the class. 5 setters and be able to figure it out more. Speaking of 5 setters, we had a 5th set tiebreak. Today, in fact, I think we had a couple, but the one I'm talking about here is 7 seed Hubert her catch going out to Alejandro davidovich for kina. Always of an honor skin this one, a blooming tough draw for her catch, a davidovich Burkina, okay, you might not think of him as a grass court, but he did win juniors at Wimbledon in 2017. And it was the most, I want to think of a non clean. I don't want to say roller coaster. I don't want to say topsy turvy. But it was all of those things this match. It was a thrill ride. Alejandro davidovich for kina was two sets to love 5 three 40 love serving. And this went 5. He went for a completely unnecessary tweener. Fast forwards will including rain delay probably about three and a half hours. And Hubert hook actually serving for the match. In the 5th set..

And with that, there's deep concern about the future of contraception and same sex relationships earlier today on Bloomberg, Tara Lee grove, a vision and ethics foundation says there could be many far reaching consequences. And so just to have a justice saying not only should we consider substantive due process, but listing those specific cases involving contraception and same sex marriage and intimacy among LGBTQ community is pretty extraordinary.

"The quarterfinals and in my daily predictions everywhere I could possibly back him. I was backing davidovich for kina. That's a bad loss. I think telling Greek sport the Dutchman. He's had a lot of really kind of heartbreaking losses on the clay this season. A memory lost 7 5 in the third to CFO and Esther really lost a final set tiebreak to her action in Madrid. He lost a three setter to Felix auger Ali asim. I think after 7 for the match in Rome, and he just hasn't been able to build on that Monte Carlo final where he was fantastic that tournament and look, it's a heart pick. I love his tennis. I love his pet adoption agency. I love his odd socks. I just think he's great. And I think it's a shame he's out because he's a fun time. It's a good result that for Alexander's who beat Sebastian oftener today very comfortably because he was the he was the really dodgy potential opponent in his quarter. So good result for him. Other notable results today, what did we have? I think we've just had a win for leyla Fernández. Over Christina devic late on long lens. I think that one. That's my prediction for the day one. And Sloane Stephens was a winner today. That was my pleasure. Yeah, so the end of that, actually. And that was the match proceeding Isner. I literally just thought I'll pop into the long run to have a look, but I was so taken by the position of where you watch. I thought, I ended up being there for the next hour and a half. But Stevens was thrilled with that win. Actually, I mean, she came, she came through a difficult time in that match. And you know, she's had a really difficult time generally on the court. She's had no wins of note. And you could tell she was chuffed a bit, and just searching, you know, searching for some form. I was impressed with how she fought after losing the first set. He never quite know with Stevens if she's not fancying it. And her opponent qualifier duel nee Meyer, another one who just stormed through qualifying barely barely losing a game, Stevens can just sort of go, don't fancy this. Yeah. And she didn't today. She was prepared to go to the dark places and I'm impressed with that tennis. As I always say, is the better for a dialed in Sloane Stephens. However, that might be where my predicting of Sloane Stephens success ends. I feel like this is a charity. You need to know where to cut your losses and run. Explain Stevens. Just turn the lights on as if it's chucking out time at the pub. I mean, I think it quite literally is checking out. I think all of the, all of the matches have finished. Yes, the app tells me there is currently low, no live match. Which means we have to wait until tomorrow schedule, which looks like this. We start on the Philippe chatrier court with the world number one eager schwinn tech against leisha sirenko, then it's Diane parry who David was Googling earlier today. Earmarking a potential upset. He's decided against him. I decided against it after some very selfless advice from that. I see why you were going there because Barbara kuche, the defending champion, hasn't played a match. On clay this season, she's she's there to be upset surely. I'm just not a sure Diane parry is the one despite Diane Perry's recent we're never medicine English. Did not pick up any she's very good David and he said she recently beat Madison English. And nobody knew what to do with that. Then we have Rafael Nadal. This 13 time champion kicking off his campaign against Jordan Thompson and the first night session slots tomorrow goes to the men's world number one Novak Djokovic against yoshihito nishioka, kicking things off on Suzanne long then tomorrow at 11 a.m. is Amanda anisimova against Naomi Osaka. That match shouldn't be there, should it? No. I don't think it should be at that time of day. I'm not sure which match it should displace on the shatter air court. Well, Kathy and I were talking about that earlier and I thought Catherine put it very, very well. And I'll let her explain it, but the way I see it is you've got three days to pay the first round and there's two possible days that for sarcasm over could be on because each half of the draw is over two days. And yes, she's playing on the same side of the draw as English film tech, but real quick she cover. Rafa Nadal and that Djokovic here on those days as well. But you don't need to schedule all those matches necessarily on the same day. You know, you could you could get a soccer on chat tray as well as anissa mova. You say, right? That is the best first round match we have. Which it certainly is. It's a priority that that has to be on chatrier. And you work from there. You work backwards from there, because without question in those conversations, they're working back from a place of Djokovic and Dao both have to go on. I hope that they also put on tech in that in that category, but yeah, for me, in that conversation in the same bracket should be, and it's over in Osaka has to go on saturated, work back from that point. And I understand the point that a number of people that have made to us, which is undoubtedly a factor which is that Japanese TV that pay a lot of money for these tournaments they are very invested in tennis will have requested that slot the 11 a.m. slot. Because that's 6 p.m. in that 6 p.m. Japanese time. But American TV will have requested as latest lot as.

"And also a little bit disappointing, I think, also for the second seat, Casper Ruud, because we were talking about the fact that podcast season gets to his gets his first ever master's hardcore final. And we're thinking, oh, this is a great setup for him. Going into the clay season. And yeah, again, maybe a little bit like zero. Yeah, it would have been a little bit disappointed, you know, not doing as well as perhaps he felt he could have and carrying on, I say, that meant that momentum from the sunshine doubles. So yeah, I think for the top seeds in the drawer was, yeah, pretty disappointing week, but at the same time, yeah, nice to see kind of rune vanders and chop, getting to the final and for ruin, you know, is in the top 50 now, as you said, I mean, where do you see him? Where do you see him going this season? How high do you think his ranking can go? Because I think he said at the end of last season, top 25 was his ambition, but I still feel like he could go a little bit higher than that given the number of clay events coming up, giving the way he's playing at the moment. He'll be someone not really many people will be wanting to face at the moment. Yeah, I can see him getting like a big winner slam over a top seed. Perhaps not necessarily following it up and going deeper Islam. You took a set off Djokovic at U.S. open last year saying definitely doable. He did. So I think yeah, I think top 25s doable top 20, you know, if he's not having as many points to defend from the rest of his season. So he surely the only way is up should he stay fit and healthy. Certainly think he will go higher and top 50s just the beginning. So, you know, well done whole guru, we've also got another player who is going up in the world. That's Sebastian Baez, who won the ischial. Again, another first time ATP tour title winner. Sebastian Baez did reach a final earlier on in the season, didn't he, I think, over and the golden swing down in South America. But this was his first title. One very comfortably over Francis TFO 6 three 6 two got off to a bit of a slow start, but managed to, I think, hold his serve, not go double breakdown early on and that was kind of the real key factor from then on he was definitely the stronger of the two players and yeah kind of race through the rest of the match really wasn't a very long final and yeah, so two young new first time title winners on the same day and Sebastian Baez, yeah, obviously we think of him, don't we as a clay quarter he's Argentinian. He's sort of honed his magic, I guess, on the I think a lot of challenges out in the clay. But yeah, now on ATP tour title winner. I think of him as a new Diego Schwartzman. I don't know if it's the backwards cap and he's 5 foot 7, 5 foot 8, he's one of the smaller players on the tour and he is a player who he does just look at home on the clay court that doesn't surprise you. Obviously, as an Argentinian and yeah, really nice, really nice victory coming through again some real battles in ASTRO Francis tiafoe as well coming through various battles. I feel like he was on the brink of going out at various points on route to the final. So both had to really fight their way through to the final and I actually think Francis CFO. I mean, his semifinal against Seb corda was an absolute roller coaster. Seb called a probably should have won it. But TFO coming through 6 four in the third, I think it lasted over three hours. I think TFO was pretty knackered, having saved match points as well, getting just getting to the final. And I think perhaps that told a little bit in terms of, in terms of his legs, I think TFO was saying himself that he needed to go to the supermarket Kim and buy new legs. That was how TFO put it, going to the final, so yeah, I think maybe physical fitness had an impact on the spectacle of the final, but at the same time for Sebastian Baez and other player who just think is very just very consistent on the clay. I think he's quite aggressive. He's got a decent serve and yeah, it's setting up him setting him up really well. And I think he's another player is again now into the top 50. He's having a good season. Was in the next gen finals. You know, at the end of last season and he's just kind of continuing so himself and I know that they're going to be people saying, can he do it on a hardcore? Can you do it on other court surfaces? Not sure at the moment, but at the same time he's making the most of it in the part of the season that you would think this is where he wants to make it count particularly at the top end on the ATP tour level. Yeah, and even if you start out as more of a clay quarter, you know, there's absolutely nothing to say you wouldn't learn and grow and adapt your game to improve and excel on other surfaces. So he's just starting his career like let's not write him off just yet on other services. I think it's all a matter of time isn't it? But yeah, for sure, very comfortable on a clay court. I think actually CFO, we were talking coming into this tournament about what Alejandro davidovich for kina was going to do. Where we after his Monte Carlo final. And he did lose the TFO, but again, it was another very tight battle. So see if I had to get through that one as well. So I'm not surprised here if I kind of ran out of steam in the final there. But funnily enough, he seems to like estero. He's got to a final before here, hasn't it? Yeah, it seems to be a lucky tournament for him. I think he's got to four 80 P finals. Two of them have now been at estriol. So there is something about the clay here that tiafoe loves. Yeah, he took 9 hours, 47 minutes to reach the final from his four matches combined..

"Came today is the 18th of April and we are here to catch up on the weekend tennis at passing shot headquarters, especially backed by our crowdfunders Georgina Davis and Mark Underwood. We have had our first masters event on the clay this season, the masters 1000 event in Monte Carlo, Stefano sits past is our champion. He was the champion last year. He's the champion this year retaining his title, and that is not bad way I think to start the clay season a very difficult thing to do to retain your title. I think he's the first person outside of the big three to do that in a long, long time. But before we get into all of that, Kim, of course, it is Easter. I've got to ask you the big question that is on is in my head and I'm sure he's on everyone's lips. Of our listeners, what Easter egg, what Easter egg have you gone into? I'm sure you've tucked into have you tucked into a few over the weekend? What Easter egg have I gone into? I've got into a Cadbury's egg. I'm very traditional in that sense. But we can't, yeah. No. What about you? It's so underwhelmed. It's so underwhelming. Have you gone for a fancy hotel chocolat egg then Joel? Not hotel chocolate, but I do, I do posh it up a little bit over Easter. I've gone with, I think you have to, it's got to be lint, the lint chocolate Easter egg, lint chocolate balls as well at Christmas time. It's just got to be done. It's like, for me, it's like the seasonal, it's the seasonal chocolate of choice and Cadbury's, I just don't think it really doesn't elevate the occasion Kim. Come on. I think you've just been sold by Roger Federer like advertising for Lin, haven't you? You just been like, you've succumbed to their marketing. No, I mean, I do love a bit of chocolate. I mean, happy Easter to any of our listeners who have been celebrating. I've been kind of off in the southwest of England for a few days, which has been really nice. Lovely weather as well. We've had a reason. So yeah, it all been very nice, indeed, and very nice, as you said for stefanos it's bass because he's one of his first title of the year, defending his French Open crown. What am I saying? Defending his you are getting ahead of yourself. A few guys had to get sorry. Obviously he had too much Easter chocolate. Defending his Monte Carlo crown. 6 three 7 6 in the final against Alejandro davidovich for kina, who, you know, aside from defending his title, was probably arguably definitely the story of the week. Reaching his first masters final and, well, really making a name for himself. At this stage, are this level on the tour? Yeah, definitely. It's been it's been really impressive from davidovich for kina because he put himself on the map with that victory against Novak Djokovic. I mean, we were going into this tournament. Now looking back on it, a little foolishly thinking sort of nailed in for a Djokovic Carlos alcaraz quarterfinal, but by was it day one day two, both Djokovic and alcaraz had lost and davidovich for kina was very, very good in that match against Djokovic and we'll come on to that in a bit, but let's start with stephanos best because he is the winner. He is the champion and it's just amazing I think for Sisyphus because, as you said, he's retained a masters 1000 title. He's the first non big three player to do that since Andy Murray in Shanghai back in the 2010 2011 season. So a long, long time ago, it just shows that I think how difficult that is to become and I think this tournament is just shows with Sisyphus, although I think there are faults there, you know, with his game and you see that, I think, particularly like on a hard court and we've seen that I think at the start of the season, he's already got, I think, 7, losses on the tour. Yes, he is the match wins leader, but he's had a few losses where I think I've been a little bit surprised by, but coming onto the clay. I mean, his game just works so, so well. And I think this week really, really showed it. And I think particularly for me, the time he is allowed by a clay court really, really helps in terms of particularly I think his ground strokes, you know, I know he hits a heavy ball, particularly on the forehand, which I think was really key to his success, really kind of staying in offensive positions from the back of the court, but also one of his backhand side as well, and also, you know, certainly I think with him, again, I think being questions about that backhand side, but the fact that even on a clay court with that high bounce, he is able to kind of get round and break out his forehand, and I think is really, really helped him in terms of getting into these kind of winning positions. And I think that served him really, really well throughout the whole week and apart from that match against Schwartzman in the quarterfinals, which was an absolutely wild ride. Yeah, he played very, very well in the final. Yeah, definitely. Definitely able to run round and hit the forehand more often. He's got the times to do that on a clay court and get that kind of angles, it really is, yeah, definitely, I think his surface, isn't it? His game is so much more effective. And he served really well against David Richard Burkina in the final, so much better on all the kind of stats is clear kind of winner in that regard. It was just when he was serving for the match, had a bit of a wobble. He was able to break back, went to a tie break, but I mean, really, since has been, you know, pretty comfortable. I guess, for a lot of the tournament, it was really that Schwartzman quarterfinal that he, as you said, went for love down in the third set and had to come all the way back, but aside from that, you know, he had solid win over Sasha zverev, win over laszlo, for nini. So obviously really, I think good for him going into the rest of the places and to have this kind of wind for his confidence because he's been really off the ball for a while. Neither of us really thought he was going to defend his title when we were making predictions this time last week. You know, we were kind of just focusing on alcaraz and Djokovic, as you said. And I was going about Yannick sinner for some reason. But yeah, it's a really positive week, I think, going into the French Open, you know, he will be defending his final at the French Open as well. He's got lots of points there to defend, you know, he obviously lost in 5 sets of the Djokovic last year. Many people are now considering its passes, you know, I guess he would already have been one of the favorites, but it's going up in the form books and the odds perhaps. I think one question mark for me is around his position where he does get into those kind of winning moments in those scenarios where he does have the opportunity to serve it out and we saw that in the final he wasn't able to do it..

"davidovich" Discussed on The Tennis Podcast

"As we recorded this podcast last week, Matt in person sat on this sofa that I'm sat on right now. I promise I have moved in the last 7 days. We were watching sub sebi Sebastian corda battle through against bertok van der zant hope, who was injured and called it looked quite good, but you know, he was in a battle against a slightly injured opponent. He didn't look like he was he looked like he was playing well, but not necessarily shaping up to do anything major at the tournament. Then he goes and beats Carlos alcaraz mat in a match that I missed because I hadn't earmarked it as one that would be notable. Quite frankly, I'm a big fan of Sebastian cord is that I did not see that happening on clay, given alcaraz's form, obviously this is the case for any subscribers to the newsletter you'll see that I'm doing I'm doing a bit of with alcaraz. I'm just continuing to double down. Why did that happen? Unfortunately, I was at the U.S. embassy when that happened. We should have discussed this before I throw you under the bus so much. At least you were doing podcast work at the embassy. That sounds pretty, doesn't it? Obviously, you're trying to get a Visa to travel to New York for the U.S. open later in the year. To make sure I don't miss any quarter and our creative actions from the U.S. open. Yes. But what I mean, I did some obviously lots of people were talking about it because it was a notable result, wasn't it? I think everyone us included was getting very excited about the Novak Djokovic Carlos alcaraz quarter and neither of them won their opening match and I can't remember what the quarter final was in that section. I think it might have been davidovich for kina Goff at. Or Fritz, no Fritz, the vivid for kina, wasn't it? Anyway, it wasn't Djokovic. I think alka has looked really just like oddly rusty by the sound of things making a lot of areas. I think it was a really windy day. But again, that surprised me that he didn't deal with those conditions because he dealt with them so well. At Indian Wells in the wind and I would have thought with the spin he would he would favor the wind more than quarter. But actually I was reminded cord has played quite well at the French Open in the past already. He is tall, I think he likes the bounce going into his forehand and backhand up high and I think maybe we didn't just because of both vendors and Schultz, injury. We didn't quite see corda having to play very good tennis, but I think he is I think he is capable on this surface. And that would be a fun rivalry actually, wouldn't it? If those two can can develop one, alker has called that that is not called essential. Two more, two more bits away from Monte Carlo. One is that Joe Salisbury having reached world number one has, well, confirmed his place there quite frankly by alongside partner Rajeev ram beating one Sebastian cabal Robert Farah to win the doubles title in Monte Carlo great final, wasn't it? And yeah, he's just a great story for J solsbury to be to be doing that and rising to the challenge of being the world's best doubles player. Yeah, and watching that final, it really struck me just how fine the margins are in doubles because Salisbury and ram were in the ascendancy and it flipped on one on one point really. It was a sudden death use and Kabul and Farah got a net cord in their favor. That gave them the break of serve. And it just made me realize that getting to getting to number one in doubles when the margins are so fine when little moments can make a big difference in a match, basically. I think it's harder to be dominant really in that format. So I think anyone who gets to number one or really ranked really high in doubles. That's really impressive and I thought Salisbury really stepped up in that max tie break an incredible bit of defense to pinch a point. And yeah, he's really playing like the number one. Great to see. It really is. And hello to both of J Salisbury's parents. Who we now know are listeners to the podcast hello. Last very important burning bit of business from Monte Carlo. Adidas t-shirts. The very prominent new anti dust t-shirts because of course stefanos sits above lifted the trophy wearing one of them worst kit in the history of tennis. I think. Oh, wow. Okay. I can't tell you how much I hate it. It actually grow on me a bit through the week. I was with you when we were watching it on I think it's ridiculous and distracting. It's like, for anyone that hasn't seen it, it's sort of colors, I think, are pretty horrible. They're like sort of sludgy, greeny colors. And then they sort of covered in nonsensical hieroglyphics. Which apparently is something Parisian? It's something it's something sustainable, is it? Just put a picture of a polar bear on there or something. I mean, that sounds great actually. A T-shirt with polar bears all over it. Kind of like the more now I know that you really, really hate them. It's so distracting. And I know that's what they want. I know I'm playing into their hands, we're talking about it on the podcast, people are going to go and Google it, but no one's going out to buy it. I promise you that I do like it enough to buy. No. Okay, okay, here's the test then, if I bought you one as a generous gift, would you wear it? Pajamas. Right. Case closed folks, worst kit in the history of tennis. What else happened last week in tennis? Besides that dreadful kit, let's change the subject. I was just going to say one more thing on sits a pass. This week, because I found it interesting that a lot of the chatter last year round sits a pass, was that he was struggling to close out matches. Do you remember when it all sort of stemmed from that match at the U.S. open against borne turret, a couple of years ago. And then obviously the Frank open final last year, he led two sets to love and that felt like one of the last remaining hurdles for him in terms of trying to really win a big tournament because he'd proven he could beat the best players. And I just thought this tournament was interesting from that perspective because he had that crazy match with Schwartzman, where he led, I think 6 two 5 three served for it and then suddenly found himself for love down in the final set, but managed to come back and there was just this moment at the end where he just sat and in his chair and just sort of for about 30 seconds, looked like he was just really taking that in. That felt like a really big win for him that overcoming that hurdle of letting a lead slip, but managing to find a way to win. And I think he fall to the little bit in the final, didn't he, didn't he? He had one attempt at serving it out and got broken back and managed to win and I think it shows the frailties are still there maybe, but also that he's getting better at overcoming them. So I just felt sort of not only his tennis being so good, but the way he won, given his sort of backstory, I thought was quite significant. Very, very good point. Is he playing Barcelona? I know Alejandro davidovich for kina has withdrawn from Barcelona because Barcelona was sits a past played one of the matches of last year against Nadal in that final. And that was after winning Monte Carlo. Yeah, he's in the draw and we can get excited about a quarter that may or may not happen again because it's the Carlos alcaraz quarter. So since alcaraz would be a quarterback. We need to enjoy this brief time, don't we wear Carlos alcaraz is ranked low enough that he scheduled to meet these players in the quarters rather than in the finals, which is surely only a matter of time.

"Let's come on to talk about that because there was there was one moment where he dived for a ball that even if he had made it, I don't think he had any chance of winning the point. It was just, I don't think he did it for performative theatrical purposes, but it was, you know, with the benefit of a split second hindsight, it was really silly. And he ended up drawing blood and having to get treatment on his chest. It's just an instinct that I think your eye, Catherine, our instinct, is to not die for a tennis ball. His is just to do it. No matter the consequences. Do you think somebody once said to him, you've got a hair a bit like Boris Becker? Do me a do me a dive volley? Let's see what you've got. But we're not talking about just at the net here. He's not opposed to doing it, doesn't it? But we're talking about the back of the court. He will be gymnastic, hurling himself towards a tennis ball, at the baseline. He did one on return of serve. I mean, yeah, he actually drew blood against Novak Djokovic. That was the extent of the drama in that match. It looked very much like Alejandro davidovich for kina was going to win that in straight sets and there was a bit of a mental let down from the Spaniard to not do so and then Djokovic went into lockdown mode in that second set tiebreak, which was very reminiscent of Djokovic of old wins the tiebreak quite convincingly and lets out just one trademark Djokovic guttural roar to the crowd really extended chest beating all of that jazz and I was thinking 6 one third set quite honestly. I thought, you know, okay, the tidal waves in flow now Djokovic is if not producing the tennis of a world number one just the force of the man will take over from this point and and it was a 6 one set. It was a 6 one set in Alejandro davidovich for his favorite and it was favor rather and it was a really arresting site quite frankly and Djokovic said after the match that he collapsed physically. And that he didn't like the feeling and that he's going to speak to his team about it. Which, look, it's his first tournament back. I know you played Dubai but this is, I suppose for a mere mortal, it's really understandable, but I found it quite alarming to see, he obviously found it alarming to experience. And he obviously wasn't prepared to struggle that much. Physically. Now, whether that's because he just has never really been in this position before, I don't know, but you'd think he'd be physically fitter than after his previous comebacks from injury because presumably he's been able to train at full pelt. This whole time because there's been nothing physically wrong with him. So from that perspective, I found it, I found it quite bizarre actually that site and look, there's plenty of time for him to get that fitness back, the muscle memory is there, but you know, he didn't say, gosh, I collapsed physically. I've got work to do. Don't worry, I'll get there, but I just need to get it back out on the practice call or whatever it is. He said, God, that was awful. I don't know what's going on. I'm going to have to have a chat with my with my team. What did you make of it all met? The same as you, really. David put in our WhatsApp group that it was like an old smartphone that you think's got half an hour, 45 more minutes of power left, and suddenly it just goes and you can't use it anymore. And that was like Djokovic with his own body. Maybe, you know, like you said, that second set reaction was not the reaction of someone who felt they had nothing left to give in the third set. And clearly that was pretty much the case because the last few games that match he had nothing left. And yeah, you're right. It is early in this comeback. It is early stood in this clay court season, obviously Roland Garros is his priority, but it does put a lot of pressure on the upcoming tournaments. You know, he needs to get better physically quickly and he needs to start winning matches because I think on clay more than anything, it's the surface which doesn't suit him quite so much. And obviously it's all relative. He's a two time French Open champion. He's beaten Rafael Nadal twice at the French Open. He's very, very good on this surface, but I think it does take him a bit more time when he's not quite so attuned to the clay, he can, he can seem a little bit frail, a little bit more vulnerable. I think, for example, there are players like davidovich for kina. Okay, he's a pretty unique character, but there are players of his sort of ranking who were back themselves more against Djokovic on clay in the early rounds than they would on hardcourt or grass court. So yeah, it certainly makes the next few weeks for Djokovic, particularly interesting because there's a pressure to get results now. Belgrade this week, where he's obviously the top seed, home favorite. Is that coming at a perfect time or a tricky time, given that pressure you just referred to. I mean, the pressure will be greater there than anywhere else you could argue. And he's got to draw which could see him, face cats manage, I think, in his second match and obviously we know the form he's been in. That's an interesting match from a pressure perspective. I think for both of them actually, Djokovic playing a younger Serb, get to manovich, trying to face Djokovic, I think, is an interesting, slightly awkward dynamic, probably for him as well. I would think it's a good time. I would think he would enjoy playing at home, but like I said, there's so much intrigue around Djokovic at the moment. Yeah, the next few weeks are going to be fascinating for many reasons, but definitely from a Djokovic perspective. A couple of other bits to tidy up from Monte Carlo..

"We saw that saw that throughout the week and it was nice for him to win Monte Carlo again in front of the fans, you know, just a different experience to what he had last year and yeah, he's a real real force on this surface. I think the return thing is big, isn't it? That extra bit of time on the return because he hasn't figured it out on a hardcore. He's made incremental improvements, but he hasn't had the significant lightbulb with how to return a big serve on a hard court with those massive swings that he has. He hasn't developed that shit backhand return or chip on either wing return, really, that so many so many want him to or are calling for him to do, but it just doesn't matter so much on clay and it's just so interesting what a change in service does to the sport because it ostensibly looks the same, doesn't it? And you know, if you didn't know that much about the sport, maybe you wouldn't be able to tell the difference. I don't know, or maybe it would be even more obvious, maybe we're our eyes sort of become used to the difference. I don't know you could go either way, but I don't mean look at Alejandro davidovich for kina. I mean, since making that run at the French Open last year, when he brought himself to all our attentions, when we learned that he supports an animal charity back home in Spain and he wears a patch of theirs on his kit, since he announced himself he's done boggle as an E as soon as he came off the clay, just different player we went out to watch him play Felix austerity at the Australian open earlier this year on that wonderful new court. And it was a, it was a really great match what we saw, but he just didn't have ways to end the point, did he? There were some wonderful rallies, brilliant hitting. But he didn't have the weapons to end the point. And it's just a completely different sport for him on clay. Yeah, totally. And I think that auxiliary has seen match that you mentioned was probably one of the better matches he's played, not on the clay in the last few months. And I think he lost it in four tie breaks. But coming into this week, he hadn't beaten a top 100 player this year. And suddenly he gets on the clay and he beats, you know, a host of them, obviously Novak Djokovic in the second round, I'm sure we'll talk more about that match, but just absolutely. I mean, at this time of the year, you just talk about players that you don't normally talk about. You know, we're going to talk about the Vivek for kina where we could talk about mazetti as well. I enjoyed watching him on the clay and he's done nothing either. No. Since the French Open last year, he's done he's done close to nothing. And then suddenly, suddenly he's reminding us all why why we're so excited about him. I mean, I still think he should be better on hard courts than he has been thus far. And I think he will be, but oh, it was restorative to watch Mercedes look like that guy that we were all so excited about a year ago before he retired for the fans. Well, I do think that match had had lasting consequences. As you said, I think he's better on other surface than he showed. I think that was quite a scarring experience for him. And it took him a little while to get over. But yeah, absolutely such stylish tennis that I loved watching him this week. And I think for davidovich for kina, he's always been a guy, even last year, when yes, he had that run to the quarterfinals at Roland Garros, but he was a guy. I loved watching, but I didn't trust him to win matches because his tennis is so streaky. He hasn't got a great serve. He breaks. He breaks Mary carillo's main tennis rule, which is you've got to hold your goddamn serve. And he doesn't do that particularly well. And it just makes him vulnerable in matches and his game can go off and on very, very quickly. But I think he's really worked on that on trying not to have so many let downs. And I did trust him a bit more this week, just match after match. I felt like he was competing brilliantly. I love watching his game. He's so intense, isn't he? So intense. Just intensely intense. And I love that. I mean, it's really great. My favorite features in a player in terms of what I what engages me and he's just got the energy he must burn up with that intensity. I mean, there's a look in his eye that can be a bit terrifying, but it's also the electrifying. Yeah, absolutely. So I think what I'm saying is that he's managing to balance sort of throwing himself all over the core as he does and being literally and I think there's a Twitter account did focke fall, you know, it's the did Marin Cilic win equivalent and it just every day, yes. I think the U.S. channel. I think maybe it was tennis channel that had it this week. They actually had a counter during one of his matches of how many times he dived and fell in the clan. It got up to 8 at one point. Well, there was one in there was one in his match against Novak Djokovic, which spoiler alert he won..

"Actually, in some ways. Yeah, he's actually. Maybe it's because he's playing on the same day as Medvedev, perhaps, and I don't know. My attention kind of goes to Medvedev. I think lots of people would probably feel the same. He described his win as a lot of fighting and a little bit of swearing, which I thought was quite a good summary. He was frustrated. He said it took him a time quite a bit of time to work out buyers, someone had never played before. Quite a tricky game. I think I asked him straight up. How was your elbow? And he said, fine. He said, honestly, I've not troubled me to Sydney. It is fine, and he didn't need any treatment, or anything like that. So it's a good sign. Because that's my biggest worry about sits a pass. You know, I do think other than that, the game, the game can be there. So then it sort of feels like. I've dropped a clanger then is what you're saying by not having him in my quarterfinals. I haven't got him in there. We've only worked with the information in front of you. I sort of, I had him losing to Taylor Fritz in round four, which is a much still on course to happen for it to beat TFA today in three sets, which is a big win little wobble from any double faulted serving match point serving for the match, but then he wrapped it up in the third set tiebreak. So they're on a little collision course. That TFA for it to match. I think it was, we didn't get to see that much of it three very competitive sets. I think, for those three, I mean, so striking the difference in physique between those two. One of them has been playing a lot of golf. And the other one's been playing less golf. I would say, but yeah, Taylor Fritz looking good. And I don't know. I don't know what I was thinking. Anyway, we're all thinking vaguely the same thing. So Fritz now faces Roberto Bautista, a goo and sits a pass faces Benoit pair. Who's unexpectedly doing a thing, he's having a run, he's beaten Grigor Dimitrov, he's got this extraordinary head to head, I think, with Gregor Dimitrov has and he's beaten in four times. So who knows? Maybe it's just one of these quirky head to heads, or maybe Benoit paire is ready to finally fulfill his talent anyone want to speculate about whether that's the case is he going to pass? Happy to take it in its own isolation, that particular match. Not to try to read anything into it whatsoever. Understood David understood. Pablo andujar, the movement killer. He has reached round three at the Australian open for the first time aged 35. And I think that deserves a little bit of a round of applause. And he faces Alex domino next. So he's got the chance to do some more movement killing. The first time Alex de menor had won a match on the rod laver arena today, which was a big moment for you. That was the only person that showed up for his press conference. Really? Great, Aussie hope, I know. Wow, that does surprise me. Yeah. How did that conversation go, Matt? This is where I say, find out in the newsletter. But it was very nice. It was very nice. Yes. Sign up then. We didn't plan that folks. Last match, I think that we want to mention is Felix auger LS theme against Alejandro davidovich for kina on the care arena my goodness me this was grueling. I mean, Matt and I went out to watch a short portion of it and that was grueling enough. Went out for a second stint. And that sounded grueling, and then the match seemed to go on for another 7 hours after that. And it was only four sets. Goodness knows what would have happened if Alejandro davidovich for managed to take it into a 5th, which could have happened four tiebreak sets. It was, wasn't it? Marathon marathon stuff. And I know Felix is an extraordinary physical specimen, but he has had serious court time to get to this point. Yeah, and played right in the heat of the day. It was hot today at Melbourne park and this was in the baking sun for four plus hours. Yeah, I found it interesting. I remember we commented on Aussie against battista goo at ATP cup and how good was your earliest scene looked, and how secure he looks. He wasn't making the same errors that he often makes. And I really thought maybe that playing someone with that rhythm helped him. But he's played two players here who give him rhythm. Rusev Rory, and davidovich for kina, their baseline that he's had rhythm. And yet, I've watched quite a lot of him. And he is spraying the ball. You do not know what is coming off of his racket. It's either a sweet connection with a perfect pop, and it looks brilliant. It's sort of mesmerizing. Or it's a shank and it's going ten feet long. And it's a real mix at the moment. And I do think perhaps though the video makes for keener and Rousey, both have firepower. And I think he's been wary of that. And I think he's been trying to pull the trigger a little bit, perhaps when he shouldn't be. Very different style of his next match against Dan Evans, who didn't have to play today. After render kanesh withdrew with a wrist injury. So couldn't be more contrasting circumstances for those two Felix about 8 hours court time into matches Dan Evans very fresh, having had a day off. Sometimes that doesn't help. You know, sometimes that can actually hurt a player. So that's an interesting third round, but gosh, Felix has had to have to battle through and his celebration afterwards was as big as you see from Phoenix also alias seem. He was buzzing to have won that today. He really was. Felix augere seeming in Stan Evans is a match that I can definitely get excited about. That'll be in a couple of days time. The schedule for tomorrow is tasty. It's very tasty indeed, David. There is a lot of this that you're not going to be allowed to watch because it's happening in the middle of the night. And if I see you tweeting at 3 o'clock in the morning again, there is not going to be a podcast tomorrow. Those are the rules. I don't need to start a burner account or something. Yeah.

"Listening to the BBC World Service and this is NewsHour coming to live from London with James Kamara Sami Israel was the first country to roll out vaccinations against COVID-19 but will it also be the first to achieve herd immunity That's what the director general of the Israeli health ministry has suggested could happen in the next three weeks with the omikron variant now beginning to surge through the country Israel has been the earliest adopter of first second and booster doses and today prime minister Naftali Bennett confirmed that everyone over 60 and all medical staff will be offered a fourth dose although only 60% of the population has been fully vaccinated Professor nadar davidovich is director of the public health school at Ben gurion university and a scientific adviser to the Israeli government Israel is very similar now to what's happening around the globe The omicron zero coefficient is about 7 So every two to three days we have doubling of cases and although it seems it's severely less than previous variants still because of big numbers we're going to see high burden on the healthcare system because of the high rates of transmission probably we need to change the rules of contact tracing It's going to be less efficient and also so many people are going to be positive that we need to see how we can continue emergency services on the other hand of things that are going to be the same We need to encourage vaccination especially first second then those we started to vaccinate with those in a compromise and in the elderly care homes I just wonder what is the evidence and for the fourth dose is it not too early to tell whether the third dose is enough You know these are the times we don't have the option to wait maybe too long and we know that the vaccine is very safe We know that one is here We see that there is a waning immunity represented both in the laboratory and the field of biological evidence So in a state of emergency things are very unclear when it's quite safe and you don't know for sure what to be the utilities still public can not take the risk and I think that it's prudent enough to start with a compromise people and elderly care homes and of course not by compassion but people that are interested and continue to do the surveillance and share that these are not regular times and we can not have the privilege to wait for more information about this will take several weeks and to be already the health ministry is saying that there is the potential within a few weeks for herd immunity to be reached Is that something that you would also agree There's likely to be the case I think we need to be very careful in making these kinds of assumptions We have a plan The best way to get 30 minutes approximation I don't think that people should get the message that it's better to have natural infection because it has its own risks on COVID And of course even if vaccinated you can maybe sometimes visibly ill I wish that having this omicron maybe a way of getting to a community But probably it's not something that we can be sure about So we need to continue our plan vaccinations other ways such masks and preventing maybe large gatherings We don't need to forget that vaccinations and other measures are not working against the emotional aspects social economics So we need to have a healthy policy approach and engage with all the different governments I hear your caution on herd immunity And I just wonder is it a useful term given what we know of reinfections for example with omicron and the idea that there could be other variants that come along with different properties So how do immunity for concept We prefer maybe community impunity or something like that because we are not heard I think it's a very interesting term but I'm not sure it's right now useful because of infections because we see lots of mutations and variants And because we see such huge gaps around the globe in vaccination rates So until we're not getting to much higher access for all countries I think it will be very difficult to speak about sustainable herd immunity So we need to continue to learn the recent year giving vaccines but of course it's not enough and we need a multilayer approach That was professor Nadal davidovic scientific adviser to the Israeli government Lebanon is entering 2022 in a state of political and economic paralysis Its cabinet hasn't met in almost three months its currency continues to lose value and deep divisions have caused the investigation into the deadly Beirut port explosion of 2020 to stall There are elections do this year but arguments over their date have led to fears that they won't take place at all Our Middle East.

"Real juice, blue raspberry with real juice, cherry with real juice, cherries, the bomb, peach perfect, red bang with real juice, sour orange and sugar free cherry limeade. And I know that you are thinking what I am thinking, that's all good and well, but this list is clearly not comprehensive. For instance, the 7 11 site lists slurpee flavors like pink think, kissing cousins, gully washer and sticky icky. Are these flavors kosher? Will we even get sticky icky slurpees in the 7 11 and these enough center? Apparently, only time will tell. And arguably nothing captures the cool in every sense, cosmopolitanism and the easy familiarity with the best of international culture of this city we love so well, Tel Aviv, better than the good news that very soon, like the most refined cultural in New York, Winnipeg, Sydney and Hong Kong, our cups two shall runneth over with somewhat frozen, somewhat carbonated red bang with real juice, though maybe not strawberry twizzler and monster black because here in Tel Aviv, it can truly be said that we drink in life in big gulps with us in the studio is a woman who's marvelous prose is not unlike a slurpee effervescent sparkling with life and full of froth and fizz. Obviously, I am talking about Allison Kaplan summer Allison has written for Politico, the new republic foreign policy, the Jerusalem post, the JJ the forward and many other of your very best papers and magazine, she is a columnist with her arts. You have heard her on mpr PRI in the BBC. And you have seen her on I 24 television and Al Jazeera TV, Alison holds a beneath world center award for journalism recognizing excellence in Diaspora reportage and a Simon rock our award for excellence in covering Zionism Ali and Israel Alice and how you doing? So if you're a Broadway nerd like me, you hear 7 11 and slurpees and you immediately think of the iconic musical heathers, which was made after the movie, in which the psychopathic hero named JD who was played by Christian Slater in the movie, sings an ode to 7 11s and to drinking slurpees in the show. He travels around all over the country after his mom dies, and the only place he finds comfort is in 7 11 and he sings from Las Vegas to Boston linoleum aisles that I love to get lost in. I pray at my altar of slush. Yeah, I live for that sweet frozen rush. Freeze your brain sucking that straw get lost in the pain. Happiness comes when everything numbs who needs cocaine. Use your brain. Ah, the music of the muses, that's beautiful. I didn't know about that. I loved the movie and this is so for me. Also with us in the studio is a man who likes 7 11 is always there for you when you need them 24 6, and in his case, if you really need him, he'll help you out on that 7th day too. That man is Don federman. Don is the director of the Mariah fund in Israel and the director of the Israel center for educational innovation. He is also the genius behind a series of podcast theater productions of autobiographical monologues called federman's one man show, which you can find wherever find podcasts are pervade Don how are you doing? Well, I'm going to stay on the theater theme because when I was back in my theater days, my friend, Anthony, and itinerant actor, like most of us worked at 7 11, and I used to visit him at three a.m. for the weekly hold up. You know, so that was we had a set date. Now don't you think 7 11 is like a subconscious suggestion for all of us to be shooting craps? I'm going to open a rival train called snake eyes. We'll see how that one does. As for me, my name is no Efron, and I don't mean to boast. But I was once beaten up at the 7 11 over there on Amherst avenue in Wheaton, Maryland when I was ten years old, new to the area and I biked over. In fact, to get me a slurpee, and there were some tough kids in front. At the time, I estimated their ages to be maybe 18, maybe 20, maybe 40, though in retrospect, they were probably 13 and one of them said kid give us your money. And I said, no, I'm going to get a slurpee after which a spirited disagreement arose at the end of which we all agreed that I would rather give them my money than to get punched yet again. And I biked home penniless and crying all the way. And I am not bragging. That is just not the way that my folks raised me. I don't know about you. But while everyone loves slurpees, how many people have actually sacrificed for slurpees as I have? Today, we will discuss three topics of transcendent importance, but first we have a matter that we're following with alert interesting great concern. As part of an occasional series that we call the promised podcast, ponders the power and pathos of exhumation and posthumous repatriation. As we record on the morning of Thursday, October 28th, 2021, the 22nd of cash Evan, 57, 82, dozens of relatives alongside a delegation of worthy's representing the IDF and Israel's government are laying to rest in the military cemetery on mount herzl, private Martin davidovich, Martin davidovich would be 94 today if he were still alive. He was born in 1927, exactly two days before my mother in the event. In a town called de novo, then in Czechoslovakia now in the Ukraine, one of 7 kids four boys and three girls in a family that told seltzer with a beer operation on the side. He studied in a heter, but when he was old enough, he joined Hashimoto's ear. When Czechoslovakia was dissolved in 1938, de novo became part of Hungary and when Hungary was taken by the Nazis in 1944, davidovich was sent to mouth housing where he worked as a tailor and then to Auschwitz after the war, davidovich went home to learn that his parents and one of his brothers David fee and two of his sisters rift and Miriam were dead, but two of his brothers laser and naftali and one of his sisters hay been or Blanca survived with nothing to keep him at home. Martin davidovich wandered westward like so many Jewish kids alone after Auschwitz and other such places. And he joined a zionist group Hanoi and knocked around planning to move when he could to a Jewish Palestine where Jews were at the time forbidden by the Brits to enter. In July, 1948, just before his 21st birthday, davidovich volunteered for something called the Czech brigade. The check brigade was the idea of a small group of Czech Jews who fought with the Nazis. Most as part of the Soviet Army, some as partisans, and they now had the idea of training Jewish survivors in the Jewish brigade that when their training was done with travel to Palestine to fight in the war of independence, the men behind the Czech brigade presented their idea to Ehud abriel the envoy to Prague of the provisional Jewish government in Palestine and also to check foreign minister Jan masaryk, who had always done what he could to help those trying to set up a Jewish state. For instance, signing in January 1948, a deal with Ariel to bring 5000 guns and 5 million bullets to Jews in Palestine, eventually check planes came to after maserak died in March, the leaders of Czechoslovakia kept on supporting the provisional Jewish government in Palestine. And that is how it happened that the check brigade got on the down low, check uniforms, check weapons. The use of check bases and some of the commanders of the brigade coming from Czechoslovakia with others coming from the issue from Jewish Palestine. The head of the brigade was high in gori, the great poet novelist and journalist who died just a couple of years ago in 2018. The brigade took up residence in barracks and training grounds that had been built by Nazis just north of Prague. Gory said, quote, I'm the gates of the camp. There was an inscription, fear is the worst crime. Everything was highly secret. The secrecy was such that outside the camp, it was forbidden even to speak in any language. When we went swimming in a nearby Lake, we were forbidden to utter a word. It was forbidden to photograph there is not a single picture of us there. There were misunderstandings. There were people who had been through the Holocaust on the one hand, and people who had fought the Nazis on the other hand, there was no common language, not everyone knew Hebrew, not everyone in new English, but there were lovely moments of meeting. Another of these Israelis there for training was yossi Agassi, who later went on to study philosophy of science under Carl popper at the London school of economics and married the granddaughter of Martin buber Judith boober Agassi and who supervised the dissertation of my beloved dissertation supervisor Monaco fish, and who once took over a keynote session of a conference I was in charge of denouncing all of us in the most vicious way for teaching our students heidegger, whom Agassi said was an unreformed Nazi, we whitewashed every new academic year of fresh in Israel, had we no shame when I was 18 in Israel for the year with young Judea, our Madrid Ronnie kahana now harad Roni kahana brought hi I'm gory to talk to us and he told us how walking the streets of Tel Aviv on evenings in the 1950s, one could not escape whales coming from apartment windows open to the cooling air. He said, survivors grew agitated as the sun went down, reliving horrors and loss that were then only a decade old and their screams were the dusk music of the city street. Gory added, none of this was ever mentioned during the day. And that image of the solitude of suffering is never left me, but I had no idea no idea of how much gory had seen. It was his reporting of the ackman trial for a now long defunct labor left paper called la mer havre that captured the trial best. He wrote of the parade of testimonies from the planet Auschwitz on display in Jerusalem that he worried that they would, quote, turn us all to stone. Gory was 25 in Prague trying to make a group of survivors and partisans and Soviet soldiers and provincial kids from Palestine into a paratroopers unit. Israel was then two months old under attack and very much in need of that paratroopers unit. And that is when the tragedy happened as part of exercise is one of the Czech commanders thinking his gun was empty, shot 20 year old Martin de vinovich, killing on the spot, this kid who had survived Auschwitz and all the rest. The body was brought to the new Jewish cemetery in Prague and buried. Gory later wrote in his book until the sunrise quote, I can not escape the image of that young man of ours, Martin davidovich, who was killed by the bullet of one of the Czech commanders. He was buried in secret, we called terrible tragedies like those training accidents when Martin davidovich died his brother enough Holly was also in the Czech brigade. He was the only family at davidovich's secret burial in Prague. And he and later moved to Haifa and then later to America. High avena or Blanca davidovich moved to the states too, eventually settling in Muncie. Already in 1948, according to archival documents that I have not myself seen, members of the quote unquote parachuting instructors team of the Czech brigade asked that the newly formed IDF recognized Martin davidovich as the first Israeli paratrooper ever to fall in the line of duty. But davidovich was not a citizen and there was a war to be fought. One of davidovich's friends from the brigade, a writer named yitzhak greenwald, who returned to Israel and served as a paratrooper published in Hebrew in account of davidovich and spent years collecting documents and petitioning the IDF. Finally, more than 50 years later, in 2001, davidovich was recognized as an IDF soldier at the rank of private, and in fact, as the first IDF soldier in his unit to die in uniform, though his was not an IDF uniform. Back then davidovich is surviving sister and brothers disagreed about whether Martin should be brought to Israel before she died though Blanca Friedman nay davidovich, told her daughter iris Friedman that she wished for Martin to be interred in Jerusalem. Eris Friedman told reporters that she visited Martin davidovich's grave in Prague for the first time in 2013. She said, quote, I felt strong vibrations. I felt that Martin's spirit was sending me a message. I went to my rabbi from habad in a long journey began. As I am saying these words, that long journey is ending this past Monday after three years of negotiating with the checks, a delegation of generals rabbis and at least one of David over his nephew's exhumed Martin davidovich flew his remains to Israel and right now with 60 of davidovich's relatives from all around the world in attendance, he is receiving a military funeral in a military cemetery in a country he trained to fight for and the country he died for, though he never lived to see it. He's a Robert. Today, three topics, topic one, burdens of proof as minister of defense Benny Gantz outlaws 6 Palestinian human rights organizations or depending on how you see it 6 quote unquote human rights organizations on the ground that they funnel money and support to the Popular Front for the liberation of Palestine, which has long been stipulated a terrorist organization. Guns did this as brilliant measured mild and wise political analysts due to Ari gross father of two, tweeted, quote, without offering a shred of concrete evidence to the public. And many others believe, of course, at the very fact that he banned the groups is all the evidence you need to see that they deserve to be banned, causing many to how and some like me to admit that maybe I kind of buy it sort of. We'll talk about it and whether I am more a knife or an idiot, though people, people, it doesn't have to be one or the other. Topic two, a great deal of new green as ahead of the cop 26 international climate change extravaganza, beginning tomorrow, as we record in Glasgow, Israel's cabinet approved a hundred count them hundred point plan to green up lots of things here. We've scrutinized the plan and we'll ask whether the whole, maybe doesn't turn out to be less than the sum of its 100 parts and topic three, breathing, easy, as Israel is experiencing a life threatening shortage of ready to be transplanted lungs for the COVID afflicted patients who need them. And one of the country's greatest transplant experts proposes that replacement lungs be denied to patients who chose not to get vaccinated until everyone who chose to get vaccinated gets the organ they need. This is based on a principle he calls reciprocal altruism, will wonder whether morality dictates that we give preference to the vaccinated or prohibits us from giving preference to the vaccinated or maybe something in between and for our most unreasonably generous Patreon supporters, we will discuss a photo es in The New York Times by two journalists who traveled to Israel north to south over a week and a half to learn that Israel is quote an unsolvable jigsaw puzzle a collection of incompatible factions each with its own priorities, grievances, and history. To which at least some respond in print and pixels, dudes, I think you may be missing something. We'll try first to make heads of the essay and then time permitting tales. But before we get to any of that, you lucky people listen to this..
