"Is this you with Greg Norman now? Oh wow. I think so. People on ESPN was part of the coverage. People forget how great she was. I mean, you know how much she won? Yeah, absolutely. I mean, she won like, well, 18 grand slams or something. I mean, yeah, she won 18, I mean, unbelievable. She was ranked number one for 260 weeks. So when people talk about the greatest female tennis players of all time, everybody's like, oh, Serena this screen of that. I mean, Chris Evert's in that conversation, too. I mean, she was unbelievable. She almost won 90% of her matches. That's incredible. Let me give you one more tennis fact here before we move on to college football. You know the greatest female tennis player ever was? It was probably the woman that Chrissy ever couldn't beat. Martina, never had to look. You know, that's a good one. No. You know who to me was the greatest. Monica seles. Wow. People forget that, you know, when Monica seles got stabbed in that match in Germany. She was like 21 years old or something. By the time she was 20 years old, she had won 8 Grand Slam titles. And that incredible listen to this streak, right? From 1990 to 93. And again, 93 got cut short because I believe she was stabbed in 19 93. She had won. Ready for this? She won the French Open in 1990, she won the Australian French and U.S. open in 91. She won the Australian open Wimbledon and the U.S. open in 92. She had one to start 1993 and then got stabbed. And this is before she turned 20 years old. So when people talk about maybe the greatest streak of greatness, no question for me, Monica seles was the greatest. I mean, that three or four year stretch, she was far and away the greatest tennis player we've ever seen. I mean, incredible. She was like 50 and one. No joke here, art. She was like 50 and one in Grand Slam tournaments for like a three year stretch. That's amazing. Yeah, I mean, no one, no one's ever done that. No offense to Serena Williams, she's had the longevity of it. But no one has been as dominant for a stretch in tennis, I believe, then Monica seles was until she was stabbed. She was literally 20 years old or actually maybe I don't even know if she was 20. I think she was still 19 when she was stabbed by that Steffi Graf fan in Germany and she, of course, only one once after that. So, you know, we can talk about Serena with 23 Grand Slam titles, Margaret court with 24, Monica seles could have won 30 grand Sam titles. She could have. Now, coulda woulda should have, I get it, but it's an abnormal circumstance when you are literally stabbed on the tennis court by your rivals crazed fan. I'm just saying, if you ever get a chance out there, read up on Monica seles and what she was as a player because if you don't know her history, you will be absolutely amazed. By her greatness for that short stretch of time, 8 Grand Slam singles titles before her 20th birthday. She won the French Open at 16 years old. I mean, all right, I don't think I have to sell money. That's amazing. Yeah, absolutely. You don't even think about it, right? Like when you think about the greatness. It's not a name that comes to mind until you hear the actual greatness of this. Because they played a longer period of time, obviously. Monica doesn't really come to mind, yeah, absolutely. No, because it was a short run. It was such a short run and obviously the circumstances. Listen, you know, you get stabbed on a tennis court, you will never feel comfortable again on a tennis court. The psychological the psychological aspect of it is she probably kept looking over her back. You know, every time she took the court. And that's why she was never so young. It stayed with her. Stayed with her. She only won one Grand Slam's tight one Grand Slam title after that, and you know, and by the way, I think that guy just spent like no time in jail. Europe's very kind of lax when it comes to things like that and you know, I think he spent very little time in jail and some, you know, if any at all and really a crazy story and then like Steffi Graf who obviously was a reason why Monica seles got stabbed because he was a crazy Steffi Graf fan. Apparently you'll like visited her in the hospital in Germany once. If you had a chance something to just read up on it, it's a wild story. That is just a crazy thing where the women's ten association want to suspend her ranking at number one while she recovered. And all the other players voted on it. I think only one player, like maybe it was like Gabriela Sabatini, voted to do that. Everybody else was like, nah, don't do that. Let her fall down the rankings. It's crazy. The cat fighting or the infighting amongst the other tennis players was insanity of what to do in that situation. Man, you know what? I'm gonna go read up on it again after the show. It's really wild. It is crazy stuff, man. You wanna talk about just treating a person wrong after a violent incident, read how tennis treated Steffi treated Monica seles after she got stabbed. It is crazy. All right, craziness a college football. Forget the NIL, right? Guys making millions of dollars, but Miami gets some recruit that apparently is gonna make like 9 and a half $1 million over his career. The university of Miami and he turned money down could have made more money elsewhere. I think at the university of Florida was offered to use it for like $11 million in NIL deals. That's the madness of college football in terms of the individual level. But in terms of teams and conferences, USC and UCLA four or 5 days ago, they jumped to the Big Ten. That will take effect after next year. And that kind of leaves the pack 12 in limbo. What happens now, right? Like Oregon's a top team Washington's pretty good, but here's the, here's the difference. LA is the number two media market in America. After New York. USC and UCLA are the two big schools in Los Angeles. Okay? They might as well be the pro football teams in that town because they were for a long time until the rams came back. So for the Big Ten, they wanted to gobble up the Los Angeles media market because there's money in that. And they did it. Congratulations to them. The problem for Oregon is regardless of the fact that they are a good school at football and they have all this Nike money and great facilities. They're not offering you a.

"So great. So, so great. Great stories on both sides. Yeah, very much here for that. Long lens sees the men's legends final. Who would like to know who's in that? Yes, please. Sebastian Grosjean and Cedric peer lean. Against arno klement and fabrice santoro, they're all they're all French. Is that a fix? That's outrageous. Yeah. Yeah, a decade on the champions tour teaches you that there is they would never consider such a thing. The women's legends final today was won by Flavia Pennetta and Francesca schiavone over gisele delco and Gabriela Sabatini. What is going to happen? In the men's singles final tomorrow. I found the down is going to win. Not rude baby as Billie Jean King put it in her press conference today, which was one of the highlights of the day. Are you so great, wasn't it? Before the press conference officially began this, we all started our day with Billie Jean King press conference, which it's a shame that every day can't start that way quite frankly. She's sitting down and she's getting self settled and getting herself a glass of water and stuff and she's just greeting everyone and someone says, how are you doing? And she goes, I'm good. And then there's a pause and she goes, living large. And yeah. Wouldn't answer to that question. Regardless of how grumpy I am on any given day, whenever anyone asks how I am, I'm just going to say, living large. So one more day to go. Nadal for a 14th title, says David. Mat agrees. Yeah, I do agree. Maybe this is for tomorrow, but the idea of Rafael Nadal having as many Roland Garros titles as Pete Sampras has Grand Slam titles. Blows my tiny mind. Unbelievable, the fact that we might watch that tomorrow, it blows my tinier mind, Matt, and all due respect to Kasper aid. I wish him well. But it's a tough day. It's a tough task. Have you seen the picture of 2013 Casper Ruud at the French Open final watching my fun at all, lift the trophy? He's in a green G lay. I think we'll be seeing that picture a lot more tomorrow as well. Sort of him supporting that out he supporting the dollar. Absolutely. Yeah. And also, just quickly, in Toni Nadal news, he gave a quote in Spanish today. I can't quite remember who, too, Matt, but he said, in another extremely subtle dig at Felix George said, if it can't be an adult, Casper Ruud is the next best thing. We're in the French Open. Phoenix isn't in the final. But if it can't be Nadal in the final, it can only be the person he's playing in the final. Anyway. Poor Felix. Rude baby, rude. I'm cozy Billie Jean King, David. I haven't just lost my mind. And he's not rude. Yes I did. There was so many incredible one liners and brilliant eye rolls that just gave me life in that press conference. By the way, Catherine, called my mom. Gave her a call. She answered. Yeah, I was slightly concerned it was in the doghouse. Somewhat. And especially when I sent her a lovely jolly message saying, I hope you've enjoyed all the jubilee celebrations and the tennis. And then I got no answer for about two hours. And then I got a note back saying, thanks for slagging me off on the podcast for a few thousand people to hear. I'll remember in future not to answer the phone to anyone when you are here. To which I was. It sounds like mission accomplished for you, David, the message has got through. However, I would like to say that when I called, she says, actually, I didn't know when I was listening to the podcast. It was when I saw that post on Instagram that suggested that you were slagging me off and I suddenly thought, is he? Actually, apparently she signed up on Facebook in some way, she doesn't really know how and they replicate over to there. So she calls a sight of it. But apparently, after much groveling, I appear to have been forgiven. So sorry, mom, you're the best. My mom, when we were trying desperately to get to 10,000 followers, my mom sent me a message going. I've joined Instagram, so I've helped. My mom, she thinks she got us over the line. I think she did, so. Every person counts. Good work, Ross. One more of these pods to go folks. It's been it's been a wild, old, brilliant ride here at the French Open and we can't wait for tomorrow. We have Cooper, our lovely mascot for one more day. Thank you, Cooper, for you've just been most excellent. Just being involved. We have our mascots. I've got Carter, David's got Darwin. Has the dearly departed Gerald the cat. Billie Jean has Billie Jean King and Alana class. We have our executive producers and top blokes Chris Albert Lee and Kyle weingartner. Matt, we have shoutouts. We do, or more specifically, just one shout out today, because it's very special one. It is two Martina from Marion, which, first of all, great tennis names. Excellent. And this is a surprise for Martina from Marion. They are getting married today. So they've probably already got married, in fact. Oh. Congratulations. They're in Mainz in Germany, Marion was a massive tennis fan in Germany when she was younger during the Boris Becker, Steffi Graf years, kind of fell out of tennis for a bit until 5 years ago when she met Martina, who got her back into tennis, they said, on their first date, they talked about graft versus Hingis at Roland Garros in 1999. So this is a surprise little extra wedding present for Martina from Marion. Absolutely love that. Isn't it wonderful? Many, many congratulations to you both. I know the shout outs for Martina, but marrying you having one too. Yeah. Love that. Let us know if you and your partner have both have tennis names. That's a that's a new road for us to go down, isn't it? Yeah. Okay. Hang on. How good does the player have to be for it to be considered a tennis name? That's a good question. Because we try to find a tennis name for every single one. Yeah,.

"Bayes that he has to quit in the middle of the program because he can move what's impossible to him. So it was, it was very, very, very sad what happened with him. It's incredible that the guy who play alone 16 seasons at the tour left 5 years and a half for injuries is incredible. And I want a guy who was very important for the bid for, you know, joko, which feather and a lot of Murray don't want to play with him. One delta was fit. So I think it was a very, very, very tough guy. It was like also a very cool guy because the people around the world like to see him and I like his and like his behavior. So it was a moment for the sport, I think. Let's go back to the beginning of his career. And even before the beginning of his career. So tennis in Argentina men's tennis in Argentina at this time, there was the famous two argentines in the final of Roland Garros in 2004 with gaudio and Corey. Yes. And now bad was the top ten player at this point. There was a lot of talent in Argentina and tennis. Mariana puerta made the final the next year, the different sort of story.

I think that shows big deal if action wind because medvedev to slam it is only on that gold medal. You know this hatching. I feel as had a bit of an underwhelming career. So far so i yeah i think i probably would if we cut it now. I think i'm always thinking of big titles and an olympic gold is is huge. You would never stop looking at it would you. You would just take it out every now and again which you'd wear it where it needs to be on your person from what david cousin from about my person. You wouldn't take it off every night you sleep in it and sharing it. Yep yep provided that didn't degrade material okay. Well well david you said aksyonov hasn't progressed or has had a bit of a disappointing career. Really this is his first final. Since paris he's not even reached the final onto wyoming. If you think about it is so underwhelming peres. Victory wasn't that the podcast where matt appeared for the first time and matt's robert's day happened we went on action of. Yeah so we've got. We've got that to think. Count hatun of for us assembling in nepal 2018. And inventing matt roberts on the podcast so delighted i think the slutty ropy cause and effect situation there david. I'm not sure we didn't say whoa. Whoa the key. Karen hutchins doing thing. Let's get it's on. My recollection. Is that matt. Had chenoweth intel an insights the. There's no way we were going gonna have. And as a result listeners. Left at and that was that Intel hasn't aged. Well i think until today exactly full four hundred episodes later reeling people in with a deep dive on karen hatchet off. Wow but now. The other thing i wanted to mention a couple of things actually one is suddenly struck. Me that the draw for washington has just been made sarah. We know refunded house playing next week. What's going on folks telling. Yeah he's he's at the top of that drawer there and he is going to be playing a gainst. The winner of jack sock and yasuhito nishioka in the first round. And if he gets through to the quarter-finals he is scheduled to play if they both get through camera. Nori winner of that. Would face the winner of dimitrov. Ann evans in washington. So that's all happening and there's also cinna demirel palca shannon seem Role in that draws pretty strong draw have say but yeah on the is going to be back next week so tennis doesn't stop folks. How long is now that chuck which has got a month exactly month between now and the start of the. Us open does he play one event in that time i think so. I think he play. Cincinnati yeah yeah autograph but he said he was exhausted emotionally didn't they here needs a better time to get over that thing. Can one event was about right. I wonder whether he might even just play the week before the us open. Just take a good proper rebates But what i what. The is the region. The reject calendar has the week before the. It always winston salem winston. Salem joke jovovich is not going to winston-salem david worked so well free in belgrade. Belgrade to doesn't chirp part-owned winston salem as far as we know. That's a the other thing i wanted to mention is tell you else in today's results with steffi graf who is still the only player in history to win the golden slam and it's been helped along by her compatriot unders. Yeah i mean. I spent a bit of time today. Think about steffi growth. Because you know obviously don't remember winning the the golden slamming in in nineteen ninety eight. It was just before the nineteenth david. But i'm sure. I'm sure you have arm memory of it. But i mean search which is as good on his dominant a tennis player a- as i've known in my tennis watching and loving life and he has been unable to achieve what steffi graf did in one thousand nine eight so it really puts into focus. Just one achievement. That was and she was eighteen and she was she was still taken on. Martin never to Who is still very very good Gabriela sabatini this wasn't sometimes people try to do this era down. I think her. And i think that's intense happens when somebody's truly dominant but there will allow to good players around still and she actually beat sabatini in the final olympics So yeah it is. W- it's always worth just remembered somebody who actually achieved what even jackovitch was unable to achieve today. And it's totally understandable. When you look at the state of exhausted he looks. It's not surprising and obviously meant playing the best of five the major title tournaments. But even so it's to to win all four and then go to the olympics. Which is what was happening in. One thousand nine hundred eighty and soul done as she did it but anyway she did. So what else happened today. We had success for matt package and nikola mak tich- in the men's doubles final beating Village and even dodig.
