U.S. Spat With France Shows Challenge of Keeping Allies Unified

"I want you to put on the secretary of state hat. That many believe people believed you're going to wear. Should hillary clinton have won the two thousand sixteen election. And tell me what you would do if you were sitting on the seventh floor of the state department and this submarine controversy arose. And you might want to recap it for people who didn't listen to talk about it last week. You're on the air with me when the story broke. Yeah in in very short strokes. Australia signed up for france to build diesel electric submarines which are pretty good but over the last week or so they have done a one eighty and signed up with the united states in the united kingdom to build vastly better nuclear powered submarines. The french have lost a multi billion dollar contract. Their outrage what i would have done in retrospect was spend more time speaking with our allies. The french our oldest allies the first nation who came and fought alongside us in the revolutionary war. There are very fond of pointing that out as we subsequently fought a small war with them but such was the nineteenth century at the moment there still very strong allies within nato and so this came across to them as a very bad industrial policy. But also a real stab in the back to an ally. If i were sitting in tony blinken shoes right now and tony by the way. Interestingly is a franco phonic. He speaks beautiful. French lived in france for many years. I think he is and ought to be the point. Man on trying to rebuild this at the moment quite shaky set of relationships. And it's not just france hewitt's it's also with europe. Broadly we see particularly in the wake of brexit as the united kingdom pulls out. We now see france taking a lead in germany in working toward a much more independent eu policy. That'll bleed into our efforts to stand up to china. That's why this is important. I think secretary blinken that ought to be pretty much at the top of his chat list. Right now is working with his counterparts in paris.

Forcing Small Kids To Wear Masks Isn't Science, It's Child Abuse

"As a nation how far we've fallen. Where tens of millions of people if not 100 million, plus think that torturing our kids and abusing them by putting masks on their face. They can provide no actual evidence whatsoever. Have stopped this spread. None provide some anecdotal stories, little pockets of evidence that it may have stopped an infection from someone actively spewing droplets. You can provide no evidence disease or systemically effective at all. And yet, in the interest of taking it to conservatives and insulting Donald Trump supporters, you abuse your own kids. But it's it's stunning. It's really tough to see how far I watched it, and I'm sitting there and it's like day in the gym, which is even worse. And I'm watching this.

The brand seems to be disruptive. What do you accredit the the rapid growth to do. What do you attribute the rapid growth to why is it. Being such a disruptive success. I would say there's more people coming to the category now right so there's certain people that would never try an energy drink right that more health conscious consumer really was not interested in putting in other bodies some of these beverages that had you know some you know ingredients that you can't even pronounce so as more people. Are you know looking for energy solutions. Whether it's a coffee drinker. That wants something. A little bit cleaner lighter Or you know somebody that might be drinking other energy drinks but is trying to live a healthier lifestyle. You know. i think that's really where the disruption comes in also. There's never really been a brand that you know was built in the locker room in this energy category right so you know. We're really fortunate that Death net recently featured us as a sports drink. Innovator we're not really a sports drink. We're not a hydration drink or something that you might take Before you want to do some exercise or if you wanna just have a little bit more energy and focus throughout the workday but you wanna have it with clean healthy ingredients and you know the other reason why people might consider us to be somewhat.

Inside the US-Australia Submarine Deal

"The dutch prime minister mark rutta will reportedly offer his uk counterpart. Boris johnson a defense and security cooperation. Deal with the eu. When the leaders meet in downing street later today it follows yesterday's announcement that the uk. The united states and australia had agreed their own defense. Pack called aucas. the deal has angered many. You states with france calling australia's decision to scrap a huge submarine. Deal in favor of eight nuclear powered subs deal with the us establish back. Let's get the latest now from paul rogers international security advisor at open democracy. Paul some very harsh words from paris. Today tell us what happened here. I on the australian deal and why the french are feeling blindsided by it over the australian deal. The australians essentially decided to replace their existing collins class submarines richard come to the end of their useful life with new pout submarines rather than diesel-powered submarines. The previous decision was to gain with france which has quite a good recorder producing diesel-powered submarines. It can actually produce a new pout. Submarines for self. I don't think he's ever exported them considered it. But anyway australia's decided they need to new capelle. Submarines had this deal with the french for the best essentially for the Diesel-powered ones they basically dish that and gone in with the united states with britain as well although the suspicion is that as far as the building of the new submarines consent bush will be done as an australian yard in adelaide. That will be done. Under american supervision with the british relatively small this is partly because britain is producing own new class of astute hunting submarines as well as its missile submarines an in both cases. It has pretty serious problems with developing the reactors rolls royce history. Having great difficulty in getting things right the to another words in america wants a more reliable. So that's the basis of it. The the fringe obviously are pretty furious of this because what was a pretty big contract with a lot of money in. It was basically dish in favor of a basic and anglo american agreement. So that's the background this at beyond that. Of course you have all the issues in the eu and the whole question of how one handles a rapidly growing china which does have increasing military capabilities.

Traditional vs. Contemporary Classical Music

Traditional vs. Contemporary Classical Music

"Today we are talking about the somewhat controversial topic of traditional versus contemporary. And this is a debate in pretty much all areas of life or art forms, whether you are thinking literary. So where you have a more traditional or even historical type fiction versus contemporary fiction or in music, if you like the traditional sounding songs, very classical, or a more contemporary pop genre, and obviously to apologize to everything else, like politics, if you have your more traditional people and your more contemporary progressive people anyway, I personally believe that it's important that we can appreciate things on both sides. Of the line. So when it comes to more traditional sounding violin music, you're going to think, especially a lot about Bach baro, classical era, music like Mozart, so here's a little box. Okay, so this very ornate decorative sounding music or you might have something even from the romantic time period, which was 19th century. Right? Now, if you are actually trying to do something more contemporary, you might do a little bit more with improvisation, although actually in the baroque era Bach did improvise a lot. But for example, if this was like twinkle little star. You know, Abu Dhabi in French Mozart did a ton of variations on that. But a contemporary version of that could be.

I think that you use saying the allies or the allies of the uk. Australia and the us. I'm unhappy because you have a situation. Where france had been quite a public their annoyance over this land because a french company had previously had a contract to let australia on submarines and that has now gone in favor of lectern with the us.

"I want to take you back to a moment at the us open in two thousand eighteen. The trophy was about to be presented for the women's final a twenty year old naomi. Osaka had just beaten the greatest. Of all time serena williams it was a contentious game serena even got into an argument with the umpire. Romasis said game penalty correct. Quaker and as soko is named champion. The crowd booed she cried. She tried to hide her face. It was really tough to watch because you could tell how uncomfortable she was. It was supposed to be the celebration but it's so obviously wasn't i know that everyone was chained for her. I'm sorry like this. And you could see then. Naomi osaka discomfort with being in the spotlight. It was something that was made really visible this week. When she said she wasn't going to do postgame press conferences during the french open and eventually dropped out altogether. This whole saga has raised a lot of questions about the demands on athletes and the media culture. They in happen. I'm jimmy boisseau in today. Caitland thompson from rocket magazine is here. Walk me through this controversy. Hi caitlyn thank you so much for being with me today my pleasure. Thank you for having so the only asaka is more than just a talented tennis star. She's the highest paid female athlete working today for one and before we dig into this controversy at the french open can can you remind us of of what makes her unique as an athlete. Yeah i mean. There's a couple of different things i think for for number one. She's somebody who came up largely in the states The but her parentage is her father's haitian and her mother is japanese and she chose to represent japan a place that she was born largely because they were giving her more support as a junior and she really emerged on the scene kind of fully formed as a fourteen fifteen year old hitting tennis balls faster than many many had hit a from a young person's perspective in a very long time tennis threes auto attendant flood. I'll do anything. In my power get their southeast by and also was a pretty fully formed athletes even from the early years i think she established herself fairly quickly as a real contender. And then obviously as you note in two thousand eighteen really a full year and a half. After she'd begun playing full schedule professional tournaments found herself in a final against the greatest of all time the second time they played that season. Naomi famously paged serena and beat her very soundly. A couple months before in miami hitting from another world's dragging serena williams all around the court there really was thrust onto the big stage at the. Us open a lot of people. Thought maybe this one and done but she backed it up with a win at the australian open very quickly thereafter and then last summer won the. Us open again after having won another australian open. She's see-saw common so she's already won four grand slams and i think what really makes this. An interesting moment is her. Tennis court has been impeccable and really hard to argue with. But she's also. Because i think a little bit in part of the way she means so much to so many different people she's been positioned and has stepped into the role of being really a transcendent star. You know she's somebody who's been an activist. We saw her wearing black lives matter. Protest masks at seven matches at the us open last year and really educating an entire country of japan about the struggle in the us for racial equity. The point is to make people start talking. I mean for me i. I've been inside the bubble. So i'm not really sure what's really going on on the outside world. All i can tell us what's going on on social media and for me. I feel like you know the more re tweets the guts. That's so lame but you know the more people talk about it you know. And she somebody who has noted is is incredibly sought after as an endorser because she's so authentic. She's not somebody who comes with the same kind of media polish that i think is is really emblematic of yesteryear. She's somebody very fresh and very new and very real i think. Along without realness come some vulnerability which is kind of the perfect storm for what we're kind of left to parse now after this.

"A young woman of color mixed race and in what is still a very white sport. How does that do you think Shape in some ways how she was treated not just in this incident but over the course of her career over the course of the past couple of days. People have been sort of pulling out questions that were asked. Not only her but serena williams as well and other tennis players who are women of color and some of them. Are you know. Sort of upsetting and shocking. They've asked naomi osaka. Serena lands that just because you're black you know and she identifies as being of japanese and haitian descent It's hard to imagine that her feelings don't stem at least in part from having to move through this white world as a woman of color And the way that she is treated you know we've seen male tennis players behave absolutely abominably and Nothing really comes with. It's certainly not an international conversation like the one we're having right now And and i do think that you there is a segment of the fandom and possibly of The people in the tennis world that really do not like seeing a woman of color. Tell them no and set up boundaries. And so i think that impart is probably what she's going through. As well you mentioned serena. I wanna play you. Something that serena williams said at a press conference. This was from the us open last september sometimes harder than others. Every day. having serena on your back is a massive target for the tour for press for stress. But as billie jean king said Pressures privilege so. I wouldn't want it any other way so i just try to think about how fortunate i am to have been in this position. Honestly to be syrian and it feels weird to say that pressures privileged. What do you think that says about about what we expect. From pro athletes. We expect a lot from pro athletes. And i think that we don't necessarily acknowledge them as fully formed human beings with emotions. I like i said. I think that people feel that. You should be grateful for the position that you're in that that they wish they could do that. Therefore it should be everything to you. It should be the most important thing in your life and again that that money solves all problems which is untrue and You know i. It's just a a strange sort of way. I think that as naomi osaka has gotten as she's gotten The pressure has gotten bigger for her. Maybe than she can handle right now and i don't mean that in a in a negative win but you know she rose to start on very quickly and people talk about her early days in press conferences. In how affable she wasn't how funny she was. That was before she was the highest paid woman athlete in the world. That was before she was the number two ranked woman in the world. Who would run. Forego land grant slaps. She is twenty three years old and dealing with the mental health crisis. And that is something that a lot of people can relate to unfortunately do not relate to it as well as they should..

"Is that so. Many of the players at the top of the leaderboard are mostly players that we would expect Especially when it comes to a stat like war which really tries to synthesize everything. A player does into a single number of value. But there are those outliers there are the your mean mercedes there are also the adult garcia. I mean just amazing to see The rangers that nobody was really expecting them to do anything and a team that has been no hit multiple times so far this season as we detailed to also have one of the best offensive players in baseball and the home run leader. Not sure how to square that maybe it goes to. What we're saying of a lot of guys are swinging for the fences. And if you come up short you don't get hits but yeah i like these breakout stories every year and in some ways. It's a little bit of a shame that some of these guys will cool off before the end of the season because we do have like over a hundred games left to go right whereas a season like last year this was it you you put up your dulles garcia season and you know you're immortalized forever as being tied for the home lead in a single season major league baseball but i i'm all all else being equal. I'm glad that there are one hundred. Plus more games left in the season. We don't need a repeat of two thousand twenty different reasons. I think the the idea of the The older rookies having these breakouts is really interesting. And i wonder what it means in the broader like baseball since you know there are still even though teams are focused on younger locking those young players and the development within their own systems. There are still like times. You're gonna miss something about a player. Who can still contribute. And they're still those like times that teams can find these you know. These still haven't gotten their chances yet. We see this were players. Who don't have this huge pedigree and they're not you know pay disease like can't miss prospects. Someone like trout or bryce harper. You know they come up when they're nineteen where he suzy. Someone like pete alonso who was never -sposed to be this big star prospect head to really like put his timing part of this was on mets but put his time in the minor league. Because everyone with discolored. Is this guy actually for real. Is he for real. Let's promote him again and eventually he makes the big leagues of what twenty. Four twenty twenty four. I feel safe in saying he has the most home runs by twenty four year old. Rookie run by any rookie with three kirby. He could've come up a couple of years before but he again did not had that pedigree you know he was not a first round pick or anything even close to that so i think that sort of his career was delayed. You know we always talk about nelson cruz soon. Nelson cruz didn't really. What was his first real productive year. Twenty five twenty six something like that. Yeah he wasn't a regular until he was twenty eight in two thousand nine and he made the all star team that year. Okay well. I think we can.

"Who is still head is rookie status intact. He twenty four games played in his career before this year did not break the barrier that you needed to to have To not be considered a rookie anymore. So now we have two rookies this season alone who are on pace to shatter the twenty home run mark and this isn't it's not like in two thousand nineteen where they're just giving out home runs like their candy. You still got to work for them a little bit more. This season So maybe we would expect the less to see players like this. Having these seasons but to have two rookies who are twenty eight years old. Put up twenty home runs. In a season there was a great stat. David schoenfield of espn had last week. Where he said that. This is pretty much unprecedented. If you go back to the post world war two era there have been only seven rookies. Who were twenty eight or older and hit. Twenty home runs in a season. One of those was luke. Easter who was denied playing earlier because of the color barrier But the other ones are christian. Walker of the arizona diamondbacks in in two thousand nineteen He twenty nine home runs as a twenty eight year old rookie. Mike yastrzemski at twenty nineteen as well at age twenty eight. He had twenty one home runs. And then you have bobby darwin. I don't know who that is from. the from. Nineteen seventy two hundred twenty. Two home runs as a twenty nine year old rookie garrett jones in two thousand nine twenty one ryan ship in two thousand sixteen had twenty at age. Twenty eight is a rookie and arrest. Strada who i believe became a broadcaster Since then in one thousand nine hundred at eight thirty one is a rookie head. Twenty home runs. So it's really rare to see these types of performances from guys that don't have a track record from earlier in their twenties emerging as rookies to have these types of seasons. There's also only been one twenty eight year old rookie that qualified and hit three hundred in that post war era and that was joey window of the tampa bay rays in two thousand eighteen. I think it's interesting that a lot of these guys have done this in recent seasons because it does speak to maybe something of the w- the philosophy of how talent is developed in baseball. It's not just about finding prospects and bringing them along and people play you know develop as their projected but it's also about finding players that can make adjustments in midstream and maybe if they're not successful and kind of stalled out in their early twenties they make a swing change. They studied themselves using data that they can kind of collect and they figure out how to improve and all of a sudden. You're in the major leagues in having these kind of breakout seasons. So i just love looking at the early leaderboards though And and just analyzing like you never thought that these guys would have seasons on the pitching side. Kevin costner who talked about When we talked about the san francisco giants he leads the major leagues in wins above replacement. Right now a one hundred of a war ahead of max muncie of the dodgers who maybe i mean we knew. Max muncie was a great player. Sarah you've been on the maximum. She trained for a long time Thanks to your fantasy team. Maybe didn't quite expect him to be in the contention for best player in baseball So that's been interesting to to see. Have that emergence. But yeah the most of the rest of the names on the war leaderboard at least our players that you would expect or at least have been dominant jacob degrom is fourth garrett cole is fifth brandon. Woodruff is third. But you know he's been good he you know he's a. He's a name brand pitcher. At least zack wheeler so you know. The surprises are not everywhere in the leaderboards early on. And maybe it's the biggest surprise..

"But you know we in the media were always kind of trying to spin out these narratives about that and yet every possible turn. It seems like that just doesn't materialize. But i'm also curious as to what it says about the like future super team concepts like our team's going to be maybe a little more hesitant to try to kind of do this get rich quick type of building scheme when they see such a big high profile example. Fail so many times. I don't know well. maybe i'm just. That's wishful thinking on my part. Because i'm sick of the super teams right but i mean if the nets it all sarah the nets are super duper team. That's different sorry. I'll also i feel like people could just put it the clippers and say yeah they're haunted that's just like oh but come on no teams i look maple leafs except leagues and the jets but besides for service. No teams really curse. I mean the mets are occurs. Look but board teams. Sure atlanta falcons. Anybody wanna take i. Yeah curse teams out there to get past. The six clearly cursed franchises that we can think of at this exact moment. Yeah maybe there i. I don't maybe they might be cursed. They seem curse. Thing is co is the most proven commodity in the like the guy. What makes this so ridiculous multi times finals. Mvp dragged the raptors shopping. You're telling me that. Him plus paul george in l. a. With all this fanfare is at risk of losing in the first round to dallas. Like about basketball to to tell you exactly what is wrong with the the alchemy of the clippers currently but it is not it. Look it look at they lose whether it's dallas whether it's the next round they lose clearly. Something's wrong i mean. They have quite leonard they should add on paper a team. That should be going to the finals or least competing to the very end for title. And just not there. So i don't know. I think it needs to be rethought. I mean we still for what it's worth. Armadale still has the clippers at nineteen percent to win the finals. That second behind the jazz now. The jazz are finally the top team after being the top team in the actual stanton's all year..

Uncle trying to get like a one on one Trying to get something exclusive but like there's no great journalism mets coming out of it so i do think it's necessary and it makes me think back to you. Know marshawn lynch at super bowl media day in marshawn lynch who was an interesting thaw player and actually one of the nfl's more interesting personalities for the whole time he was there but he hated this and kind of rightfully a super bowl media. Day is like the thing. I'm describing times thousand. It is just the dumbest most contrived or media obligation among player and he went famous late in the media. Day you know in arizona before the super bowl. The patriots answered every question. Like i'm only here so it was like good for him. Because you know that in that case that is dumb you know having having these kind of like sir gratuitous media obligations but then again this is not to say. I do think it is important. I think i do think it is part of the contract of the professional athlete to talk to the media I just. I just don't know this forum. The one she's protesting is totally necessary. Yeah i think i yeah. I think that's right. There are times when athletes need to stand in front of a group of reporters. An answer uncomfortable questions. I mean i think we do want that forum for accountability and the questions. The questions even if media you know one of the things is the media. Ask better questions leave and good questions. Athletes are always going to want to answer. Those are the things that that naomi apparently was struggling with was questions about her performance on clay and it was making her doubt her ability to compete at roland garros. But those are those are important questions to ask about how you're doing on surfaces you're struggling with and and so it's not just bad questions but i do think there are..

"Announced last wednesday that she would not speak to any press during the french open citing. Her mental health needs during the tournament. All four grand slam tournaments responded in a statement that said quote. The mental health of players competing in tournaments and on the tours is of the utmost importance but the french open also announced that asaka would be fined. Fifteen thousand dollars for failure to participate in her first post match interview and that repeated failures could result in her disqualification from the tournament and suspension from other grand slams on monday asaka whose rank number two in the world announced her withdrawal from the french open. She opened up about depression. She had suffered since winning her first grand slam in two thousand eighteen and she said she didn't want to be a distraction or take away from the tennis being played in paris but now that tennis is going to be played without one of its most exciting stars. It seems like the story is happening on two levels. The specific issue between osaka and the french open and then the broader issue of reporter access verses athlete well-being. Let's start with that specific one on cnn usa today. Columnist christine brennan said asakusa exit from the tournament. Was both unfortunate and avoidable. I think if she'd picked up the phone or texted. Chris evert or billie jean king a week or so ago and said hey. How would you suggest i handle this. They probably would have said something different. And i think that's where the problem Way that it was it became something that got out of control for. Naomi and the issue of mental health was lost in the fact that contractually. She's obliged to do interviews as are all tennis players and most athletes around the world and that is because they want to promote their sport and women's tennis has been in the lead at the vanguard of of pr and accessibility. And working with the media. And i think that's why we saw this Explode in this manner so jeff. Do you think that someone in the game like chris evert or building. King could have helped. Guide naomi osaka through this in a way that would have allowed her to still compete at the french open or given the media requirements of players was always destined to blow up. Well i think it was always destined to be a problem. But i do think it was handled very poorly. I mean i think that much evident. I don't think there was much communication between both sides. I think she could have. It didn't need to happen out in the open. You know everything. Sorta seemed seems to have it on social media but this is one where they could. Have you know her. Her managers or reps could have talked to the french open. And maybe come up with something. I don't know. I mean like the french open is they're saying they don't want to set a precedent..

I think that this is proof that even with a three one lead and vastly superior talent. You cannot count on the maple leafs to close out a first round series much less in their stanley cup drought. Which was the last time they won. Sixty nine hundred sixty seven time. They something about that team. They just can't no matter who's in there. They just can't handle the pressure that that city is putting on them to win and they just wilt. It's just an equitable speaking of sports.

"That's all well and good but you're not telling the premier women's international tennis star that you're going to get banned from our tournaments 'cause all it does it makes it very very controlling very to me. That's just a bit much like there's already find there's already finds in place. Finer letter fought like letter pay. Define now now. Maybe there's an issue with vines thousand dollars for somebody who made jackson million justify not good enough to make it clear that it can be it can escalate to disqualification which they have a right as governing body of the sport i mean that's that's that's that's already been negotiated a bargain in the cba for those guys. That's what's in there. And the point is we're in a twenty-first-century athletes and and this kind of stuff is happening more and more so. I think they want to let all the tennis players know right. Now that if this is going to become a people think this is going to become some trend. They're going to nip it in the bud and nets even telling their what their brightest star that no. This isn't acceptable. I think that's the way you handle it. So it's not like well. They use kid gloves with her. And i'm not as big of a stars. Her they came down on me. No this is letting everybody know no matter how bright you star is if you go against what what we're about. We're not going to accept it. I i give them a lot of kudos for just saying. Here's what it is. And i love the way that they pointed out in the code of conduct what articles it was and where you can find in the paperwork. It's not something they made up on the fly here it is and here's what it states and that's what i love the most about it. That's why the us open needs to come out and make a statement. 'cause he wasn't doing that is just a bit much dude like that's that's too much just just. There's already penalties on the books just fine. Or for the whole grandstanding of the whole situation. It makes it too much for me now. If you want to say i wrong more. And that's what. I want to know why she i think she's wrong for not wanting to her post game and i think she's right then for also step taking herself out of the competition because she stayed home as soon as he always at home. Now she sees she's white for disqualifying herself because right now. We're not talking about nothing about the french open. We're talking about the fact that i am asakusa. Not there wasn't participating in her media before she wasn't there but that the end of the day like the high did at the french open is making a all the open tournaments are making some big referendum of this moment. I think is ridiculous. And i think i think it's i wouldn't be happening if it was somebody else. No i disagree. I think he's telling her that you're not gonna pull this here and then go to the next event and do the same thing and be careful like you know like a lot of people push back. Oh you know her mental health. No one is knock if she has a mental health issue. I i support her. Go get help. Go to the sideline. you don't need to play tennis. take care of that. I and to you feel good about life yourself. Whatever is ailing you and then you can return to tennis. That's all i'm saying is that you can't have it both ways. And here's the other part. The athletes love to ask the media to come. Doug write a story and let me tell you what i'm doing in the community and do all that..

"Are you ready for our third major of twenty-twenty even though. We are in late September, I'm Ready. The first one was long anticipated. We really waited for that US Open, you know after that long often we talked about it for weeks and weeks on this podcast and you know what it actually went pretty well. We we had Champions, you know, we had new Champions and we had People, you know add-on to their major titles and all things considered. I thought the USDA did a really good job. So now we transition to this as you say, you know, often spice strange Roland Garros in the middle of September and October and it's going to be weird. I think you know, I think as as Honda said the fact that there are some travelling involved because a lot of the same players that we saw in New York are going to be in Paris for the French Open. I think the idea of travelling which used to be so natural for for tennis and players on the team or is now going to be just one of the many changes that these players are going to have deal with, you know, as they transition to the clay. I think you're exactly right. I think we we have this quick turnaround in a lot of ways. One of them is the travel. One of them is the surface one of them is another big event. I think we should give a little bit more time to the USDA to take a Victory lap. For everything we had been discussing. I mean, you're right gave me for months and months months. I mean literally starting in March with the pandemic. We were talking about the ux open when it moved to Indian Wells open doors closed fans. No fans. Where does ESPN figure into this? What would happen if players got sick asterisks?.

"And some of this was, you know, there were I've never seen so much sort of the equivalent of city council legistlation, but I think a lot of tied also to the forthcoming Olympic Games, but I think it's good for the French Open. I think it's good for tennis that the venue is going to change that I think you're right. I think for, you know, we, we see this at other tournament. We saw that the US open. When suddenly, the grandstand looked a lot different. I take a golf cart, or do I walk and the practice down? I mean, the noise was such a huge thing at the US open camera angles. How close the fans are how loud they are. You know where, where who's in your sight line, where you're sitting in chairman, all those things, I think, you know, we don't really talk about or meet people may brushed aside, as they don't really matter. But I think that I think they do I think you're right. But I also think gimme growth over contraction any day of the week. So the fact that the grounds are expanding their new courts new venues, that's a good good sign.

"It takes a certain take a certain kind of interview to get those kinds of responses. I think there's some question about whether the eruption the next day, I think there may have been a connection. He's are ticketed all this. He seen the response on social media. He basically, in so many words predicted what he was about to do. He just got done with the therapy session where he questioned his own commitment and admitted to having less than wholehearted commitment to the sport. And talking about his own professionalism, and twelve. Hours later, you're faced with adverse circumstances, and you any throw a chair. I think it's easy to make a connection there. But, but strictly keeping the tennis it curious. Interesting unseeded player. Half the drop. All right. We need to give up the room quickly as a one off court story. This is a topic that was sent to both of us in, in the in the round table that will be forthcoming on sl dot com or an off court store, you will be paying particularly close attention to, I mentioned it when we first came in here, but the oddly timed announcement right before eighteen minutes or so. Right before the draw was about to come out. I t f says that they have reached some sort of agreement to, you know, optimize, how the H E P and w tours are structured, so should be interesting. But ill conceived transition tour whatever were the, the, MRs Nelson, the ITF pro tour that was so controversial. And so, I. Basically universally reviled from from all corners. Not one of the ITF's prouder moments. But good for them for apparently, recognizing that this was deeply defective. And it does seem as though against the press. Release timing, little curious, let sure what is to be gained by sending out a press release mere minutes before the draw major, but it does. That's a good point. That's that will be a story to follow on this transition tour, which, again, we had people on the podcast. Talk about it. It's been a lot of a lot of chatter on social media in the players lounge. This is something that sort of past under cover of darkness. And then once people recognize the reality. They said whoa. This is really this is really a bad system. And it, it does seem as though they're already been some corrections to that. So that's a positive thing is, which you will go see very shortly. When you arrive in Paris, but they last year after dollar one, they'd knocked everything down. And you know, kinda started to rebuild, so I'm. Curious to see, I think, you know, not just like optics visualize. What everything looks like. But I think when you know, courts are changed, or you warm up in a different area. You gotta enter a different way. And Ono now this is how it works. Those kind of things can throw a player off or just it's just not as comfortable, if something's a little different, and there's a the new court and there's some greenhouses and all other stuff that I read about in architecture magazine of all things, which I thought was very yeah. They big thing on the, the new, the new court, the new court. No, I think that's that's a that's very perceptive. And I think I think the flip side of that Jamie is that good for the French Open. You had the feeling that mostly because of the ground. Look, you're you're in Paris, it's beautiful. It's red clay, but you did have the feeling of it was slipping a bit behind the other majors, obviously, pointed out, it was the only major that doesn't have a roof court. I mean there. Could be rain delays this coming year. And a lot of this was done. Some of this was was bureaucracy..

Yes. I'm ready. Here we go the French Open in sixty seconds. The French Open goes way back to eighteen Ninety-one originating the international championship tennis. Although, ironically, it wasn't very international told, and it was only opened the French players the rest of the world had to wait another thirty four years to compete in nineteen twenty eight the tournament moved to a new stadium named after French aviator Roland Garros and the competition is now known by that name. The playing surface is naturally made of clay, but limestone in powering of redbrick dust in nineteen fifty-six alvia Gibson made history becoming the first African American to win a grand slam in nineteen sixty eight the tournament became the first grand slam of the open era with Ken Rosewall men's and Nancy, the first women's champions American Michael Chang is the youngest man. Ever to win. A grand slam men's singles title, winning the French in nineteen hundred nine just seventeen while hedge with the youngest to win a women's title at sixteen and a half the French Open became the last of the four grand slam tournaments to make the move equal pay for men and women and prize money. It's one hundred and twenty third year the tournament reigning champion. The men's singles is the so-called king of clay revenue doubt. We want a record eleven titles. The most grand slam tournament in the open era, Simona Halep is women's champion. Oh. Thank you very much voice with his quickfire lowdown on Roland Garros. We'll hear more from him later in the quiz. Now in the studio is a gentleman who knows a lot more about tennis than I do probably not as good at four hundred because my full hand is impeccable it Simon campus how Simon very well. Thank you. How're you? How good is your full hand at asked me, how quick, my service how fast is yourself hundred forty nine Mazar now. Competitive record. Listenable. You said he would always eat you. Okay. Sure the Highbury. Until your writer, you write about tennis. Can you tell me about the French Open where does it lie in the sort of major tennis tournaments? Well, if you think Wimbledon is the sort of pinnacle of tennis, then Roland Garros is right behind it? They're four grand slams. It's one of the other three US open Australian Open, but the friendship has all the history. It's brutal. It's on clay eager to play five sets you to be there for hours and hours and hours. But it's very tactical, and it's brilliant, and always the best player comes out on top there. No flukes real. You've covered a few years now. I have been covering it since two thousand and four seen a lot of things happen, mostly Raphael win, because it happened eleven times, and maybe twelve this year, but it's a great ornament to go to south west of Paris, lovely tournament finishes about nine ten o'clock at night. You just stroll into Paris. Tweet on your way home last house. That'd been working full majors, which one is your favorite news. More favorite to cover because it's more social US open Austrian Open. We're working well into the night Wimbledon is not as late by Levin clock. But there's nothing open in women after that, except for curry houses chips. So France has a little bit up on that. Rachel loves curry, and chips. Do. Got back from vents last Monday and had eleven thirty pm. Cari, veggie curry. Gazelle my friend. She didn't believe me. I was like, well, you know, no photo no proof. Rachel. You always find that she goes to opening envelope. That's what you do Simon. I wouldn't know why, why is it such a brutal tennis understand that? It's the surface, it's slow why does that make it harder three that would make it easier? If it's slower gives the players more time to get round the bull to chase the bulls down. But the rallies are just much much longer and generally the matches themselves last a lot longer. It's so exhausting for place to play thirty forty shots at a time. It doesn't happen a little time. But it happens a lot. And if you're gonna do that over five sets the matches go four or five hours, everything involved in. It's not just a big serve and a smashed hand. It is dropped shots angles touch tech the tactics. And so there's a lot of mental pressure as well as physical. They do say that this is the hardest of any of the four grand slams to win because of the surface because of what's involved in winning mentioned you how rank in your favorite majors. How's it rank in the players favorites? It depends. Really, what kind of players they are? I mean, some of the players who prefer the foster cifs the ones who have the more aggressive game in general, would probably prefer Wimbledon. US open is arguably the fosters a lot of strays become quite quick recently from purist point of view. A lot of players love it because they really get into the tactics and the difficulty of winning. It's a real grind. But it's also a mental battle in place of that. Would you say then it's a bit of a maverick in the tennis calendar a little bit? And it sort of fits in with being in Paris. French is the fresh love character. They love their home plays there. There's always some great things happening on court. They've got some really great characters Gilmore feces set the place alight late night. It's a great place to be in late may or June. Finally, just bad with us. We have another guest on the line all the way from the US. He's a legend of tennis journalism. It's Peter Bodo high pita. Hi there. How you doing?

"That is our goal where we engage with the coalition in Yemen in as a general statement, we stay out of the war are. Shelves and we are focused on defeating ISIS and Al Qaeda in the Arabian peninsula. That's what we do where we conduct operations Defense, Secretary, Jim outta speaking at a news conference today, you're listening to the world. I'm Marco werman and you're with the world. The US open kicked off last week in New York, and one of the favorites to win the tournament is twenty three time grand slam winner. Serena Williams. But over the weekend Williams was in the news because of something else. The black bodysuit that she wore back in may during the French Open. Here's what she had to say about it back then. I had a lot of problems with with my blood clots and God. I don't know how many have had in the past twelve months. I've been wearing pants a lot in general when our place so I can keep, you know the the blood circulation going. So it's it's a fun suit, but it's also functional so I can be able to play without any problems. So just to be clear, that's what Serena had to say about her catsuit back in may during the French Open, pretty straightforward fun. And it also helped Williams deal with blood clots from pregnancy. So why are we talking about this? Again, three months later, Eva Wallace covers. Sports with the Washington Post, and she joins us from New York. She's at the media center at Flushing Meadows. Abe of the French Open is behind us. Tell us why Serena Williams bodysuit some would say catsuit has now resurfaced. Yes. So I'm the president of the French tennis federation gave an interview in tennis magazine recently where he said that the French Open would be instating this dress code and that strain Williams catsuit that she wore this past may would be on the banned list next year and something that he kinda followed up with was he said, you have to respect the time in place in the sport. So it wasn't just this issue of they didn't like the look. He brought in this whole issue of respect an implied that three in his outfit would have been disrespectful to the French Open the sport or the fans, something along those lines. The French tennis federation president Giudicelli even said, I think that sometimes we've gone too far. Do you see this as another case? It's happened before where Williams is singled out? Yeah, and it's kind of hard not to see it from that point of view, her body, how she dresses, how she looks. On court house. She acts on court has been something that's been discussed really throughout her whole career. The first thing that I thought of was when she was just kind of getting on court in the late nineties and early two thousand. She and her sister Venus were singled out over the beads that they wore in their hair and then on Saturday to press conference. Williams was asked about Judah Celli statements. Let's hear what you said. I don't know exactly what he seemed to say didn't seem the or what, but I we already talked. So we have a great relationship. So we talked yesterday, and so it's. Everything's fine. So ever you tend to the press conference. Were you surprised by Williams kind of distancing yourself from those remarks? Yeah. You never really know what you're gonna get with three, no, with things like this, she can either absolutely go off and delve into those issues of policing bodies and not embracing different types of bodies on the tennis courts. So she can either really delve into that or the other fifty percent of the time, three shots things down. And that's what she did on Saturday. She didn't necessarily invalidate any of the issues that were brought up around the catsuit shoes just saying everything's good here, and she also added that. She's sure if she had a chat with the grand slams if they realize that the suit was for health reasons Schuster they would come to an understanding. It was almost kind of a power move against all of the other grand slams little bit and that way. So when you say those comments, don't invalidate the bigger issues here..

"I didn't get to read the quote, but the French tennis threat threat nation president had said, one must respect the game and the place it became a very big deal and Serena, they're really diffused it in a huge way. Nike had a response of its own tweeting at that photo of Serena saying, take two per hero out of her costume, but you can never take away her superpowers cover the sport. What did you think of this whole brouhaha? Well, a couple of things I was the quote that she talked about from the French Open president, which is we spent the game in the place, correct one exactly about her body about that uniform. If you will disrespected the French Open or the fans watching. I need you to be specific with that because as far as outside the command, you're saying to Che's that's basically which is saying to me because I have seen so many not been to the French Open and you can see the women were in mini skirts. You can see, but they play and somehow that's not offense. But because she's in this form fitting uniform, it covers up everything. Basically, you're now saying that's disrespectful, so I need him to clarify that, right? Yeah. Getting that clarification. What did you make of it beats? First of all, I hope Tom Brady took lessons from serene on how to diffuse the situation just by answering the question that being said, I think this is not a good look for the French Open or the threat. And specifically the gentleman who said, you must respect the game. I think there's a, I think there's a racial card being played here because it Serena Williams, the booty comment. He sounds like the beginning of the night God, like he's just a fended. There's no reason to ban the outfit because you're right. There are many other uniforms that show so much skin, and that doesn't seem to be a problem whatsoever. So I think she has been. Mark for this, and and I think the entire thing is just about, look for all of them. I was a little bit surprised at the way she reacted to it. And the other thing I'll say is I know that it Wimbledon, they have specific dress code, right? You have to wear white clothing and Agassi famously didn't play there early in his career because of that. Are there limitations like stated limitations on what you can wear it? The French Open. I honestly don't know the answer to that question. I should have spent some of this weekend looking it up because otherwise they're just arbitrarily deciding to your point. This was disrespectful to the place. I'm Jalen a thought on this Jalen Detroit at his goal tournament this morning Jalen. What did you think. L. correct me if I'm wrong, they seem to be making these rules as they go along, appreciate the respect and the responsibility and the maturity with how Serena Williams handle the line of questioning, but let's not get lost with just took place here. Michelle Beedle just do a third mix. A lot reference..
