Fresh update on "grand slam" discussed on Strong Opinion Sports

"Hi Zack. Sorry, Matt's card shop right. And it says hi Zack, you've been critical previously of announcers and their call on the game. And I was just wondering what your favorite call of a moment is and what moment was so spectacular that may not have been called too well. They'd like to see redone. I haven't been following the sport too long. My favorite is Joe buck finally showing emotion on the stuff on Diggs, Minneapolis miracle. I think I misread that question a little bit in preparation for this episode. I can't think of any moments. I'm like, oh, that's a bad call. When bad stuff happens, whether it's something I don't like or I try to hang on to it. I try to forget if there was like a moment watching where I was like, oh, you know, that call sucked. That was a bad call by Joe buck. He should have shown more emotion there or whatever. I don't hang on to that stuff. I tried a lot. I probably write it down. I know some of my talk about it for like a day or something, but after like a day goes by, I don't remember that. I try to forget it and I focus on the good stuff like Stokely, down the sideline, Gus Johnson, that's amazing. My favorite though and the one I wanted to highlight here. It's actually a baseball call. Dave niehaus was the Mariners broadcaster. And his Grand Slam call was chef's kiss amazing. I think it's an all time. I grew up a Mariners fan until I disavowed the baseball team and said, I'm not going to support what you're doing anymore. However, Dave niehaus is like, I don't know if he's well known nationally or not. If he's not, he should be. He was truly a national treasure, and I'm not a Homer. I don't just because I grew up with something and it's like part of my child that doesn't mean I think it's the best thing ever. I try to be very, very realistic. But Dave niehaus was probably the best thing to Mariners to actually done in the history of their franchise. He was an amazing broadcaster and he had this call, get your rye breaded mustard folks 'cause that's a grand salami. Oh my goodness, I love it. Get your rye bread and mustard folks. This is a grand salami. Anytime someone hit a Grand Slam oh my gosh, beautiful call. I love that.

"Know a more empathetic more community. Based more more everything More progressive and here a real example of that in some ways the person who has the face of the team the only face of the team right now and person who's embraced being the face of the team is now saying she's. She's stepping away from the sport. I think it's it's good that she's taking the time away obviously and she can get her herself To a place where she's excited to come back to it. It's also a task that there's so much public excitement about this expansion team and there's a kind of assumption that this is going to be who's going to change everything for women's sports and maybe it will but you know it's it's it is a kind of test of that philosophy and so yeah it'll be interesting to see. See what if you go to. That team's website right now. It's all kristen. Press not about her stepping away from the team but about buying her jersey shop. New kristen press merged now and the team has billed itself as not just another football club. We're not even a women's football club. Which kind of a weird. Thing to to tagline so i assume the assumption or the hope here is that she takes the winter off which you know soccer players play way too much. Yeah takes these months off. she does. She's not gonna play in the four upcoming meaningless. Us women's national team exhibition games. Which are sort of. Send off for carli lloyd and then this. This new team has to hope that she's she's willing and able to play. Come spring how much they play Especially for like these. Us men's players you know they. They play three games in this ten day window. Traveling all of these miles then go a lot of them back across the atlantic and some of them. We're playing immediately for their teams again. They're club teams over the weekend. Like something i think needs to be done with all these like international windows and how long the club season as soon. There's talk ridiculous. Talk of having the world cup every two years now which i like you'd like to dismiss it and say it's not gonna happen but who the hell knows and that's the only good idea in there. As roy smith pointed out in the new york times was a suggestion from arson van. Vangere who is fi fas now like consultant on these sort of big picture. Issues is to create a solid qualifying window for the world cup. That would last like a month or five weeks rather than breaking these up during the season and that feels to me like something that should be explored both because it would be really interesting to have sort of mini tournament. Lasting a few weeks that would settle once and for all was going to make the world cup and also create a sort of more rational travel schedule for players who are forced to fly all around the world to compete for their countries in these windows generally a fan of localizing all that stuff you know cutting down windows more back-to-back something more like what the nba did this season..

"Until i think the mentality is adopted by everybody in the us program that there is no excuse for not winning these games by multiple goals. It's still going to be a struggle particularly on the road. Maybe that's second half against honduras. Showed the coaching staff and the players to that you know what we should just be ramming the ball down these teams throats scoring four goals at will. I just love how much this turns you into like a dumb sports really enjoying this once in a while so enjoy it so so much. Yeah i think you're right. I think the fair criticism is not about. They're trying to pass the ball too much. It's more about in that game. Like playing guys out of position playing them playing a formation that they hadn't played before why not if you have the superior talent play the same formation every game and berhalter does have a preferred formation and get the players on the team used to it. And then you can plug and play. Different guys like if players aren't fed. Or if you know you need to rotate players. Just plug them into it. You don't need to outsmart these teams. You don't need to do anything that they haven't seen before or they're not expecting what you saw in the second half of that game and think a part of it was. This was the third game and a short period of time honduras players clearly gassed and so the oppressing style and a more aggressive attacking style was more inclined to work than than it did in the first half for in these earlier games and credit to berhalter for making subs early which he didn't do against candidate. You waited like the eightieth minute to bring fresh legs. Yeah but i do. I do think that there is. I think you're right that somebody like landon donovan who is incredibly smart and thoughtful and not like back in may day guy he is. Actually i think a little bit of a prisoner of the past here because this is a different era and so a result that was good in two thousand and four or in a you know a pick some other random ear. It actually isn't a good result for this team anymore. But stephan the problem isn't that they like have a mentality where they don't think they should win these games. I mean tyler adams the captain and the most vocal leader on the team went into this three-game series and said we're gonna win all three games and get nine points. And then he was criticized for being naive and not understanding the rigors of concha calf. I mean it's i feel like it's less about thinking about it and having the mentality and more about just like getting out there and doing it but like look all after all that they're in a decent position to qualify a bunch of new players. Made debuts ricardo peppy eighteen year old louise scored a goal and had a great assessed and looks great and is like maybe a finally a guy in that position you can score and so it's not. Don't don't listen to stephan. It's not all it's not all gloom in dim. They just need to believe in themselves right. It's not all gloom-and-doom josh. You're right and i am for all of this supposed to be angry. Irrationally exuberant and after forty. Five minutes of joy yen. These games are you know scoring is so difficult and one kind of shot off. You know a christian pulisic shot off the the post like changes the result of that candidate game and you know stephan for all of your like shit talking of these other countries. I mean the best player in the region. If if it's not plastic as alphonso davies of canada and the goal that they scored with just a moment of brilliance by him And that there are some problems with the us defense on that play but like got to give credit to one of the best players in the world making a great play for his country. Fats oh totally totally and i guess. The flip side is that we have great players in the world now to migrate players in the world. But we have really good players and some of them are doing dumb things. Louisa like weston mckennie. Who was sent home and didn't play in the last two games in this qualifying window because he broke ovid protocol. Apparently he brought in unauthorized gassed to his hotel room and went out the night before that too so speaking of growing up they are still young but the struck me initially as like all right. He missed the canada game. Really you're going to send him home for the ponders game and jeopardize qualifying. But i guess it worked out a message to grow up. I don't know dominant was pissed about that too. And it's all he should've been i mean how hard isn't slip by yourself on yet. It doesn't make much sense honestly. And he had hosted a party when he was at. You've anton italy and gotten suspended by his team for that so On the one hand what you said. Louisa on the other hand. If we're being like maximally we can say does the pandemic. It's really hard to be by yourself. I mean the the thing in italy is way more understandable. Like it's hard to be by yourself in a country that you're not from with not that many people that you know in an isolation for a very long period of time and you have some people over like dat is seems totally excusable in this case like you're in a hotel trying to qualify for the world cup just like get together did it really doesn't make much sense and definitely does you don't want i don't want to like i don't wanna like you know. Make it out like he's some evil person but it doesn't really make you question someone's judgment is very poor judgment before we wrap up the segment. I wanted to mention on the women's side. Kristen press of the. Us women's national team announced that she was going to step away from soccer to focus on her mental health. And she said. I've made the difficult decision to take some time away from the game to focus on my mental health spiritual growth and processing grief. So her mom had died in twenty nineteen at a very young age. I think she was fifty eight and this all came right as press was just a couple of weeks after press was announced as the marquee first signing for new expansion team in the national women's soccer league in los angeles angel city f c and it is obviously the latest example of an athlete stepping away from her sport. Angels that he has made a very big deal about being a new kind of football team. You know a more empathetic more community. Based more more everything More progressive and here a real.

"Fedex were now meets next in the last two weeks of the here. They finally come play for chelsea and barcelona event in manchester city. they're ranked tenth in the world. Now man this is going to be so much fun. united states. men's national soccer team played. Its first three regional qualification games for the twenty twenty two world cup. It went like this. Two hundred and twenty-five gouge my eyes out minutes against sixty four th ranked el salvador fifty nine th ranked canada and sixty third ranked honduras two and a half games and then he final forty five. That prevented me from throwing a blunt. Object through the television screen and burning my old landon. Donovan t-shirt actually. I love my old landon. Donovan t-shirt him would never burn it. The americans tied el salvador and canada. Which is frankly pathetic. And we're losing one to nothing to honduras when a trio of subs an eighteen year old playing in his first senior international match save. The teams asked with four second-half goals. Hope might not spring eternal. But it'll get me to the next trio of qualifiers in october josh. There were reasons to not jump off a cliff over the team's performance namely injuries and a kovic positive. Too key players us. Gino destined christian pulisic but after a summer of genuine optimism. I sure felt a large surge of the old familiar anger frustration and nausea watching this team. You like i just listened. In urban meyer post-game speech there anyways inexcusable. I mean all the illegal formation penalties against el salvador. It was hard to watch your. You're right yeah. I wish i could say that was above it all in shame on you but i also felt kind of deeply annoyed watching those first two and a half games. Because i've i've become invest in this team and certainly bought into all that hype. And there's people like landon donovan. Who has been saying a bunch of smart things. Particular grant walls podcast about the series of qualification games. He is like a thoughtful and extremely knowledgeable guy and he says repeatedly the thing that the fans don't understand is how hard it is to win away and concacaf games like in central america with these crowds in these teams in these fields. And so there's a certain sense that like. Oh the lake. Sophisticated and savvy and not knee jerk fan. I'm going to be all like sensible about you. Know a drawn. El salvador is not like a terrible result but like that game against canada pedophile the first half against under s pitiful and at a certain point it just seems like an excuse that hasn't particularly convincing And like that that kind of any any results on the road and central america's just explained away by like forget. Jake it's chinatown but in the second half they gave like. Oh yeah you can score a bunch of goals and beat this team. That's like clearly doesn't have as much depth talent and that's like a thing that's possible even in an away game and concacaf and another thing that was said on grandma's podcasts. That i thought was actually really smart and interesting that maybe the thing that is the problem for the us or has been for the is that they're actually trying to be too smart and trying to tactically sophisticated like playing all these like playing formations that they've never played before playing com lineup combinations. That they've never played before trying to do all this. Like ticky taka passing bullshit when the reality is a national team soccer louisa and like we can translate this across any sport. It's like you know olympic basketball or something. These guys never play together. The the whole national the national team barely ever gets together. These lineups played together. Why are you trying to do all of this like sophisticated like lineup. Passing type stuff just like bashed the ball down. Use your superior talent and just like be super aggressive and try to score some goal. It's a very. I'm an unsophisticated. Soccer viewer and commentator. But it just seems like they're trying too hard and like trying to like be too smart when that's really not what's called for in these situations. I think that that sounds. I'm i'm even less sophisticated soccer person than you are. But i mean i do think that coach is often over. Think things especially when you have a group of players who are maybe extremely talented but don't know each other patterns and habits and can't anticipate associated group that as young as the soccer team is this. You know the national team is. We decided in the you know the the olympics the usa basketball. I mean it's it's not like those guys are bad basketball players but it took them a minute figure out how to play together. And i think the one thing that we've seen on on the women's side with their overwhelming successes that they played together for for so long and play together. So much dot must massive. We know that that's a big part of their success. And it's going to take awhile probably for this team. And it's also going to take some intelligence their coaches to figure out not to make things hard on josh. That it's a it's a question of changing style so much like playing tiki taka soccer. It's really a question of the history of the united states is relationship with these other conch calf countries on the field. This is the sort of overthinking and and over managing which we saw in these games from the coach gregg berhalter who should have been fired if they had. Not one against thunderous is that it warned of like thirty years of not being that much better than honduras or el salvador and not believing that we should beat every one of these teams in our region except for mexico and maybe costa rica by three or four goals every time they step on the field with them because they are that much better as soccer players even the eighteen and nineteen year olds that are on this team and you know so the el salvador honduras with all due respect are ranked fiftieth and sixtieth in the world. For a reason. And until i think the mentality is adopted by everybody in the us program that there is no excuse for not winning these games by multiple goals..

"You know another example the same phenomenon and then if you wanted to criticize seats for anything it should have been that. He basically trotted out some misinformation about vaccinations and being anti vaccine mean. The greek government came out and criticized him for his irresponsible. And a scientific remarks about definitely feel like conscious or unconscious sublimate and louisa. Just how much focus. There was on this dumb non controversy controversy during the us open. Absolutely i mean. I mean it's it's hard to know sometimes when you are a semi news and semi entertainment organization You know what kind of calculus is going into. That is that they don't wanna get in legal. Trouble is that they said comfortable. For whatever particular announcers is it They don't think it's gonna be good for ratings whereas you know something as dumb as bathroom breaks is kind of captured. The imagination of skeptical logically minded immature public. I don't know. I mean it's it's hard to say i mean i i think that I think that broadcasts have an ongoing tradition of blowing Discussions about a lot of these things. I mean i think you know. In the first game of the season. Chris collins worth referred to antonio brown's million dollar smile and some quote some off the field stuff you know referring to really serious allegations against antonio brown so. I think that that works needs to do a better job at you. Know facing This public information and it does seem that this is a sort of no go area. Which is is pretty inexcusable and needs to be addressed In some way either by ourselves or by the public the forces them to do it. I think as the season goes on with the saints in with winston This will be talked about more. I think this week one storyline of i start. They blew out. the packers. is maybe going to push things in the direction that we've been talking about but we'll see i mean i wouldn't be surprised if it needs to be ignored but someone at some point or a lot of someone's at at at some point argonaut address and we'll we'll see How he deals with it. How the team deals with it. The nfl deals with it but You know steph. One of the more notable results from week one is just how terrible the jaguars looked against tyrod taylor and the houston texans and there was a story that came out by jason lockenfora of cbs sports. Before the game even started. I think there was just about how urban meyer mr raw college man Is everybody hates them. they're already i mean. Maybe i'm exaggerating a little bit but you know wanting them to take the preseason games more seriously being mad that they lost them just seems like a really really bad recipe for for an nfl team steph and just kind of like almost a cliche of like how college guys don't succeed in the nfl just like treating the players like children etcetera yeah and the inability to recognize that these are two different businesses. Whenever a college coach comes in the nfl. Very frequently is kind of amazing. It's almost as if shockingly football coaches don't spend any time reading about anything else but their own teams and preparing for the next game and even after this game. The jaguars lost people that thought. Trevor lawrence was going to be an all star quarterback and all pro quarterback out of the chute were wrong. I mean this is still a untested rookie quarterback in a very different and more advanced league and after the game urban. Meyer said it's inexcusable. The things that need to be fixed three preseason games. You'd think we'd have that fixed. So that's something we're that we're going to do. I would guesstimate. You would not see that again. that's inexcusable. That sort of garbage will not go over well in the locker room and the fact that urban meyer doesn't recognize that these are grown up adult players and not college students that he has complete and total control over is if not surprising at least entertaining for those of us who can't stand the sort of sanctimony us bullshit. The college coaches spout. I think unhinged is one of the words that came up in the. Cbs report about him. But yeah i mean. Let's not forget that he's not like he had a reputation for really knowing how to treat college students. Either i mean there were there. Were roughly can look red flags for years. I mean i do think that one of the things that's interesting. That's come come out of some of these reports and also the first game is kind of you know incompetent. You can trace back to the coaching staff. I mean a lot of the you can talk about drop passes and things like that but you know there were there were there. Were penalized for illegal formation. Three times you know. I mean there i mean there's just i mean it's just it's just a kind of in the offseason. He had difficulties figuring out the nfl schedule. Sort of overriding people. I mean it sort of it is like a joke. I mean it is funny. I mean this is the guy who brought back tim tebow. You know. I mean it's like he's living his own like hard knocks life It didn't cut. Tim tebow however and i'm sure it was very very difficult decision for him in the staff. Let's finish by talking about. I think our favorite moment of the past week which was cam newton's forty-three minute what. Tmz described in a phrase. That still makes me laugh. Every time i see it a sit down interview with his dad laughed. I laughed in that interview cam. Newton said that his alra his hairstyle the way talks way addresses and the way he dances. The reason bill belichick cut him last month. The reason why they released me is because indirectly. I was gonna be a distraction. 'cause i've been the star without being started and this was how verbally or in my aura. Okay just my own. Patriots started mac. John's the rookie lost to the dolphins stephan. Was this. Tell us a little bit more about the sit down interview. The camden had with his dad. And would you say that this actually was kind of a display of self awareness on campus. Part i mean he seemed to be pretty candid You know he. He said that they that he thinks that he would have been cut. Regardless of the fact that he seems to not have been vaccinated and had to miss five days of practice for violating protocol..

"After the game. How did the defense in the run game give overall shape to the way displayed out janus. We were prepared. One thing my trainer. He told me he said what. Are you saying. He told us to be prepared. I don't know if i'm prepared to to say what i what i feel about. That earlier. returns stephan suggests that his pairing with sean payton could be quite fruitful on the field but this is also a guy who has credibly accused of rape. When he was in college though he was never criminally charged in two thousand eighteen he was suspended by the nfl for three games after allegedly groping uber driver. And now my favorite team has put me in a position where i have to root for this. They don't have to. But i feel somewhat obliged to root for the saints and so here we are and it feels very awkward stuff. I'm sure it did feel awkward. Josh but these the dilemmas that we face as fans sports really do force us to confront with who we are as human beings flow within ours is up with life's most challenging moral unethical questions and you root for the uniform designs that we love. So i feel for you but also sean payton. Let's not forget was once suspended for a season for participating in an operation to pay saints players for injuring opposing players and now has a cameo in a heart warming movies produced by adam sandler about coaching. His kids middle school football team during his banishment. From the nfl. Which according to tmz we'll focus on payton's time away from his job and how he grew as a person because of the experience so we love our redemptive narratives maybe jameis winston can reflect on his past now and not throw three interceptions. While also throwing thirty touchdown passes as he did in two thousand nine hundred redemption ark for jameis winston louisa both on that broadcast and also in the coverage that followed like computer kings column on monday. It's about his redemption from having thrown thirty interceptions as tampa starter in two thousand eighteen and he talks to Peter king about What's the throw that he's the most proud of and he talks about. Oh was this. Throw where i threw. The ball wasn't one of the five touchdowns is when i threw the ball away. And i was like smart and didn't force it and potentially throw it interception and i mean maybe it's a little bit of a stretch but i kind of connect to that with what winston said after the hurricane and saying i wanna thank all the first responders new orleans and all the people on the ground right now. We're with you. We're going to represent you. I mean this is a guy who both in terms of like the football guy stuff and the field stuff. He definitely knows what to say and he is saying quote unquote all of the right things and that doesn't make it any maybe makes it even more uncomfortable. Does the guy who's like acting out the role of like sensitive. Smart star quarterback for beloved local franchise. He's well prepared. You know if we know anything about him he's he's well prepared. I think all joking aside. It's hard you know what do you what do you do with the art of monstrous men You know it's a it's an old question and in sports it's particularly difficult because It's not just it's not just the work but the compensation and everything that goes with it in the broadest sense of the word so yeah at the end of the day being sports fan is to be put in a compromise position but i also think you guys are right that that what redemption generally means sports or adversity generally means in sports has to do with dropped passes and not really kinda messed up stuff and and and that's where we find ourselves and i guess at some point we we made that mean that deal. I do think that people tend to be complex. And it's perfectly plausible to me that he actually cares about first responders and also did these terrible things. I mean that he's allegedly done. It wouldn't be the first time that a person has has done great things and done terrible things when it wouldn't be a first time that you know we've completed You know Skill and success with some sort of moral fiber But it's important to keep these things in mind and also You know. I think that we this is a sports podcast you know. We are able to make some distinctions between are the people be root for and the laundry. I mean josh. The allegations against jameis winston are from three years ago when he was in the league and when he was in college and the nfl is dealing with a contemporaneous case. Right now shawn. Watson did not play on sunday for the houston texans. He is facing these allegations from more than twenty massage therapists about sexual harassment and assault. The houston texans overcame that adversity beating the jaguars in game. One behind. Backup quarterback tyrod taylor. I mean louis ivan thinking just about how we talk about quote unquote overcoming adversity in sports. But also like what are the kinds of controversies. That hurt safe to talk about and in the open you had. Espn's commentators declining over six rounds to say anything about the allegations published racket. Magazine and slate. Against sasha's veira of accused of abusing and ex girlfriend. What they did talk about quite extensively was the controversy over. Stefan city passes bathroom breaks. And then there's like a. I can't remember which round was but there was this kind of joke that i guess it was patrick. Mcenroe made a joke catch on the on the court where he's like there weren't any you know bathroom breaks in this match and it was just all like fighting and blah blah. Which like. i actually need to stop you right there. Because i feel like stephanos depaz has gotten a really bad deal and like he's not doing anything that's not in the rules and the bathroom breaks. He's taking and it was just like these guys are like going really like deep and intense on this this very kind of safe controversy and there's the other one this like elephant in the room that nobody is even touching about are addressing and just the fact that the.

"And i think her run to the final was even more difficult than than than route. O'conner wrote o'connor's was beating now sokha to top five players and other former champion to get there. So how does this even happen. I mean it was it. Just sort of coincidence serendipity everything falling into place for these two young women at the exact same time or is there something about the makeup of the of women's tennis today. That allowed this to happen. I think for one thing. Women sentences incredibly deep radical and. It said that anyone in the draw can win any tournament and she gives herself as is proof of that but at same time. I don't think that's quite true but it's pretty close to true. I mean there are just there at least twenty players who in any given tournament. you know. You're not shocked to see Walking away with the title and that's a testament to the tourist depth. I also think though that The crowd also did play a big part of it especially in fernandez. She no she. She really worked how to sort of collaborate with the crowd. I mean she harnessed their energy and use them really conducted them in this kind of masterful way and maybe that is was different this year And i do also think that there is a little bit of a sense of solidarity between them they also there was an eighteen year old carlos Who beat stephanos citizen. Incredible five-set match and emirati talked about wanting to to join their group. She was. She was pretty explicit about being inspired by their performance. And so. I do think that that was different. We've seen incredible runs from single teenagers. You know tech blasted her way to the french open title at the age of nineteen last year and a performance like dominant performance. That was noodle ask but but this was a there was a sense of movement. Here i mean there was a sense of a real kind of Something is happening in the sport. I mean i began at thinking being feeling pretty pessimistic about tennis. Feeling that it was in a bad place. I ended feeling. Just like honestly uplifted. And their success was a huge part of it and and they're sort of and the sort of sense that you know. I mean it's a cliche but you know there was just no outcome. That was going to be a bad outcome. They were at least for the moment. Whatever happened whatever was happening was good and it was good to just like. Let yourself feel that way. Once so one of the marquee matchups of the first round was sloan stevens versus madison keys. They played in the title Matched for years ago That's a testament to the depth of the women's field. And i didn't mention both of them are unranked at at this moment and they played really well. And if you watch the match and enslin. Stevens beat keys You're like madison keys win this tournament. I mean she has the the tools and she hits harder than probably anybody else. Maybe the site of sabah link in the field and then sloan stevens beats. Cocoa gov is the teen sensation of the tennis world at least prior to this tournament and sloan. Stevens looks like okay. She's probably she. she can win the tournament. Then she loses to angie kerber And then leyla fernandez. Beats andy kerber and Around prior to that. Leyla fernandez be naomi asaka and after that match osaka was just so distraught so down saying that even winning doesn't bring joy and she's not sherwin she's gonna play again and just the contrast between what osaka was saying and thinking and feeling and how these teenagers Were just processing. This entire tournament is incredibly stark. And you know back to the crowd. Asaka started at the us open in that match with maybe the most intense crowd experience. In at least that. I can remember though. Ben and the match where serena williams was getting into it with the chair empire and we all remember that and and know about that. And just i guess namhae-ho soccer has never really had that moment that these teenagers dead even in her great victory and i it. That's even more clear now and in this kind of contrast and even as there is the sort of joy and lightness and and happiness even defeat for somebody like leyla fernandez. It does feel feel bad for nemea. Asaka that she's is the place where she has a new hope that she can find the joy at some point soon. Absolutely i mean that was a wrenching moment and You know i i. I can't imagine how hard this summer was for osaka. And maybe moments over the past couple years. She's referenced i do think you know know. Misako has called herself shy in a lot of this experience has been obviously pretty hard for her. And i do think that we don't know what's going to happen with these teenagers. They did have the experience that she didn't get to how this where the crowd embrace them at the same time. Emirati kanu is is about to be a spotlight that that very few people in the world have ever experienced. And we don't know how she will. She will experience it and layla fernandez. Whatever else she is she is not shy but at the same time you know that she obviously took that loss very you know. She was smiling at a moments in the end. But she you know that was a hard loss for. She's obviously extremely competitive. And she's been very clear that her family has made incredible sacrifices to get her where she is and her whole life and her family's life is writing on her success on the tennis court. And that's also hard place to be in so i don't mean to be naive about you know where we're going to end up. I think tennis is one thing has become clear as tennis. A really hard sport and it's a mental sport and we're having all these conversations about mental health. But i mean is i hope finds whatever help and support she wants she's about to be hosting the met gala so she's not exactly disappearing from the public. I i hope that's fun for her or whatever she wants it to be so yeah i mean at some point. She needs to find the balance or help. She finds it all..

"That tonight. Even though i have not won the match my heart is filled with joy. And i'm the happiest man alive because guys made me feel very special when the applause die down louisa. He told the crowd. You guys touched my soul. Jovic has never gotten much fan support outside of his native serbia especially compared with federer. earn doll all But he did get it on sunday. And i can't decide if it's touching or sad that it meant that much to him and i think the answer is is both i mean i found it actually incredibly moving that he was so in this moment in which you know this thing that he'd been working so hard for and was very open about Chasing he never ever downplayed what Getting the calendar year grand slam would mean to him in surpassing veteran. All and the tally for the most major. I mean he was absolutely open. This is what he was going for and this was what his ear was built around and he was denied an almost embarrassing way. I mean he played very badly and and yet at the end he was he was crying and he was smiling and he was pumping his fist and there was something there was something moving about that. Even if it also was an indication of you know how what a kind of complex position he is in in this sort of phantom people who say that the novak djokovic just wants to be loved narrative is is way overplayed and i get that but in that moment you really did feel what immense him and i was reminded of when he played roger federer half a decade ago now and the crowd was just brutal to him. I mean terrible and how hard that must have been and and to have that you know this kind of redemption moment. Even as he was losing in his press conference afterwards actually elaborated and he said he wasn't just telling the crowd wasn't just getting last series. of course. part of me is very sad. It's a tough one to swallow this loss. But on the other hand i felt something. I've never felt in my life here in new york. Crowd made me feel very special. He said that it's something over a member forever. That's the reason on the change over. I just teared up the emotion. The energy was so strong. I mean it's as strong as winning. Twenty one grand slams. That's how i felt honestly. I felt very very special And yeah. I don't know any ended up by saying it was just wonderful and i. I don't know if that's how he's gonna field some borrow that kind of moment of ovation. That standing ovation was just as good as winning. Twenty one grand slams but you know. He's a sentimental guy for all the kind of the machine like narrative that also is built around him. He is some guy he's the guy feels things really deeply and has this kind of like mystic way of mystical way of talking and and that moment did meet a lot and it was and it was the kind of Reminder of you know the how important that crowd is especially me me in tennis. Which is such a lonely sport and this year. I think you know something. Maybe we should talk about is. The crowd was more important than ever took a slightly more cynical view of what happened at at that match. Which was that. It took jovovich losing the opportunity to win the calendar grand slam the first person to do it since steffi graf in one thousand nine hundred eight only would have been the second person in fifty years to accomplish that so the crowd was almost like the crowd was pitying him. I felt like yet was a recognition but it came only when he was on the brink of defeat so from his perspective. It was definitely a little. Sally field kind of moment. You love me. You really love me but at the same time it was like oh thanks for trying novak we really appreciate your effort and you know what we're also probably glad that medvedev lot one. Yeah i don't agree with that. I think that they were actually rooting for him. The whole match but it was because he was or would they rooting for for more ten as to which is always typical in the third set when someone win the crab legs. More tennis They're rooting for him. Because they kind of greedily wanted to see history being made and the he was the guy at that match who was able of giving them what they wanted. It wasn't necessarily that. They are rooting for him. There rooting for this feat accomplishment and it was crucial that he was playing against a guy to kneel medvedev who has his own extremely complicated history with the new york crowd. I mean fans. I think have come around and like him now but he's not he's not nidal he's not somebody who is a legend of the sport and he's not somebody that in this occasion. Most people in the crowd would have been set. See leers quite the contrary. But it's just so it's so funny. Louisa this idea of like oh the rich just wants to be loved narratives overplayed that is perhaps the least overplayed narrative. I mean the novak djokovic wants to be loved narrative was i think enshrined in cement forever. And i feel like a jerk for saying this but it's just kind of. It's a little bit like pitiful to nick. Nick nick curios you now. I mean i think one of the things. One of the many things curiosity said about novak is that it's kind of pathetic in that it's it's just not cool and it's you know it's true..

"Three to four that are Zeros, they're just going to go to zero. There'll be bankrupt you have one to two Grand Slam home runs. If you have one that's sufficient but you know wanted to Grand Slam home runs you probably get another three or so that are neutral me and they're not going to go anywhere and then you get a few singles and doubles. So really in I actually just interviewed a guy last week on this. So it's a little bit top of mind, but it's really a great asset class. If you enjoy helping come because part of this is like angel investing part of this is actually the giving back part you're a successful entrepreneur and you can help startup company you can make money, but you can also live vicariously through them. That's that's why a lot of them do that. The Venture Capital Companies Vulture capitalists, some people call them a lot of them invest in technology because there's a huge amount of potential for like a, you know 10x hundred x thousand x return on their investment and for them, they can have a bunch of Zeros and one Grand Slam home run is GonNa make them on average twenty to thirty percent a year. So a lot of them are looking for that twenty to thirty percent as their outcome based on the statistics of what's going to be a success and failure. But what's Important to take away from this is they're going in assuming there's going to be failures, they know it they can't predict all of the best outcomes I mean unless you're like Peter, thiel and all the best people come to you and you're just cherry picking the best ideas, but even he makes mistakes. So you don't know the future..

"Hello and welcome to our fifteenth and final edition of Roland Garros relived Catherine feeling when I say that. Wistful. I'M GONNA I'm GonNa stop missing the past sort of like A. Double again I will. Note that is. Are You you're right I'm all right I can believe it's the fifteen. Well when I came up with the idea, let's just keep doing the daily podcast. Slams that we promised we would at the start of the, even though there's no tennis by watching lots of action, the past I thought it'd be easy. Turns out then we got lots of ideas about how to do it. Including interviewing everybody, we possibly could find relevant to each match, and that's what we've done again today. for Simona halep against Sloan Stevens 2018 final, and we've got down K. Hilas special guest coach to Simona Halep, and yes, it's been a long and tiring journey to get through today fifteen of these podcasts. We've enjoyed it immensely. I think it's fair to say. So let's get cracking with this one. <hes>. This match has a lot to it. Doesn't it the whole saga because? Simona. Is it three Grand Slam. She already played. At the to that point and not. Finals yeah, yeah. She played the two, thousand, fourteen and final, and lost in three to Sharapova. She'd played the two thousand, seventeen, French Open final and lost in three Ostapenko, and she played the twenty eighteen Australian Open. Final just a few months before they send those to Wozniacki all three senators. She played well in all of them. She had a lead in all of them and lost all of them. And it was becoming a real. Saga actually. Can help get over the, line. 2018, you say. You want some facts about two thousand eighteen. We. Well, it's not long ago, so you can probably remember most of this Prince Harry and Meghan markle married. Thing right I hosted a semi. Gathering in the garden, did you did you was on the invitation? To, clarify with a few friends and family that I wasn't like a rabid royalist, and it was just an excuse to make some cake and sausage rolls. The I remember seeing the pictures. Wasn't invited that. We can handle it. aretha Franklin and Stephen Hawkins' both died toys. R.. US went bankrupt. Not Quite sure why that to my list, but it is. I'm not sure nothing either. Toys R. US went bankrupt and student Matt's became Grad Matt became Matt. Two thousand eighteen was a big. And formation. Toys R. US, they might. How do you feel about that? No I think it was pressed. Until Lo que, but so I was reading it. I won't saw. Phillips scattered toys R. US In writing when I was about five. States have good stories. Did you speak for? Him! I remember being very excited because it was circuit in the gopher. Time, I was at my dad. That's a long time ago yet. Longtime Gay and I think it was. Joseph in mazing technical latrine time as well right Matt, wasn't even Baby Matt at this point. He's never even heard of these people. You don't know Gordon the gopher is Dima. No. Right so. Just, minded ninety correction. You didn't mention that freedom got promoted into anti eighteen. Thank you for pointing that out. Rather than to. And it didn't last long. It's as relevant as toys R. US, thank you I so. Yes, so we have this final on our hands between SMYRNA HALEP and Sloan seems and it was one that. I was I was looking forward to. A tennis match in. It's just in its own right of these two players battling it out because I thought it could be a really good final. And, should he? I think it ended up exceeding all of those expectations <hes> and You're quite right Catherine when you talk about the number of finals, the the salmon halibut already been in, and it was similar to play as we think of that. We've already covered here in this running relived series like even lendl trying to win. A A I slam Andy Murray course. It took him a few guys. <hes> Goran Ivanisevic but Simona Halla. Yeah, she already had three. She'd had Darren K Hill by his side for awhile by this point, so let's hear from him about the journey that led to this moments. Together for about three us before she played that particular foreign against flown in two thousand and nineteen and I guess the memory of what happened in two thousand, seventeen, against Ostapenko, as well was brought in the full fun of Amazon so for her to go out and do what she did. And now they say that <hes> both of you most destinations. You can't get there unless you go to refund pain a tough road and that was kind of the journey that some had had even before I came along. She might the final. Open and lost Marie shower. Piping, a great match on six four on the third added chances in that one, and then to lose to paint code and then the Knicks Jay come back, <hes> an inbetween that of course remember the final that she applied at the open against the Yankee which was another great match, and just even getting to the final at the Australian Open was itself, so I I think that helped a lot. She learned a lot from that particular tournament, and when she got to the final at a French. Against Launch, he had a little extra confidence and belief in a self to finally get it done.
