"We're not just living in the post. Today we're living in an alternate universe post because today and those day we're bringing you sliding does tennis which is kind of ovarian concept isn't it should we. Should we trademark this in some way. Can we patent it. Let's if it's a success. I shower and then and then we'll get onto the patent lawyers wouldn't wouldn't gwyneth paltrow smith about that. She owns the rights to alternates. Alternate timelines well. My favorite my favorite genre of is counterfactual fiction. There's a book called idyllwild which imagines a world in the ninety s where needed jfk nor marilyn monroe died in the sixties and it sort of projecting into the future and imagining a world. That is entirely different. And it's cooled arms on on this spoiler for you or the listeners are highly recommend anyway and it's called idol ball because of course idyllwild. Anybody know this putting on spot here. This is a great little but if trivia idyllwild was the name. jfk airport before it became today airport. I don't know how. I read your david. Private could a medium sized book right. Yeah i take a long time to read books Well it's worth the effort. If you got in your hands in the middle of the night you know we as we did last week. We start off with david. Whitaker's review of what we're about to do podcast as he says it's a really good idea. Like i like counterfactual history. If hitler had gone ahead with the invasion of britain in nineteen forty not bottled it dot dot dot. What if lee harvey oswald missed etc. What if it hasn't rained in henman's semifinal with even vich so my daughter's very much understood the premise. If today's podcast and one of those three we're going to do yes. Thank you very much. David whitaker slash. Dad's fuel suggestions A little teaser of what's come where we are thinking of sort of moment tree seemingly incident significant at the time occurrences in tennis which may or may not have entirely altered the course of tennis history. david would you like to kick us off with the first sliding doors tense moment. Yeah would i'd like to imagine a world in which rafael on the dow was not left handed never decided to to play left hand. All just ended up playing left handed. And it's one of the. It's actually one of the things that i wanted to come back to for for quite a while probably a year and a half ever since we did our rounded out story. Podcast when we were we went deep into his his past and tried to just chronicled his career from it from a very young age and during that process we had been like many other outlets taken in by a the the myth it turns out that his uncle tony had decided that he should play handed in order to be more successful in in order to discomfit his opponents more and we talked about that on that podcast and turns out. That isn't what happened. And we at the time i mean. I think that that podcast got some some great feedback. People enjoyed it. But a number of nadal diehard said cop believe you're still going with this view that refunded. The uncalled decided. He should apply left-handed. I one day. Because that's not the case. So i've also one day i'd like to really look into that and find out what the situation was and when we came up with sliding doors tennis and i chose. This is one of my my selections Matt's produced the referee on the dow autobiography which contains the following passage. I've seen reports in the news media saying that. Tony forced me to play left handed and that he did this because it would make me harder to play against well. It's not true. It's the story of the newspapers have made up. The truth is that. I began playing when i was very small and because i wasn't strong enough to hit the ball over the net. I'd hold the racket with both hands on the four hundred as well as the back end then. One day my uncle said there are no professional players who play two hens. Strictly speaking true. Monica seles did right. Fabrice santoro did right But anyway there are no place press professional players who played two hens. And we're not going to be the first ones so you've got to change so i did. What came naturally to me was to play left-handed why i can't tell because i ride with my ryan tend when i play basketball gulf or doubts. That was the way sounds order. I play right handed to but in football i play with my left and my left foot is much stronger than my rights. People say this gives me an advantage on the double handed backhand and that may be right having more feeling more control and both hands than the majority of players has to work in my favorite especially on cross court shots where a little extra strength helps but this was definitely not something that tony in. A moment of genius thought up. It's dumb to imagine that he might have been out to force me to play in a way. That did not come naturally to me so pretty emphatic rejection of that. That story that we've all kind of taken as just conceived wisdom from over the years a couple things that he's often talked about by commentators is looking like he's got to four hands conventional forehands in in the way he's able to strike the bowl in terms of the the sheer muscular. Rt of his game the way he's able to put you on the back foot from both sides equally strongly and say and he's alluding to that in that analysis of whites useful for him to play. Left
Plucky Watson, Serena's Escape
"And welcome one last time this fortnight to the tennis podcast and Wimbledon relived on. What would have been men's Finals Day of the twenty twenty championships have finally. The Sun is out. It's been a frankly miserable. What would have been Wimbledon fortnight, which is made the the pain of? Missing out on Wimbledon slightly easier to bare certainly for me personally, but it's A. It's a lovely summer's day today. And it would be a nice day to be enjoying. The men's final especially is the The flying ants have the memo that Wimbledon didn't happen. they are out in force which is. A Wimbledon tradition. Hadn't done well, that's. Today's the first I've I've probably missed it and I think maybe the weather is part of that. And we've we've just watched a match with an amazing atmosphere which I think probably also stirs that feeling a little bit, and probably because it's the last day of what would have been Wimbledon and us is the last day of Wimbledon relived for now. What a pointed addendum to that sentence David. Wouldn't next one planned for us. When should we brace also? Developing! Certain Olympic week looming on the horizon A. I feel like I. DO actually need a week off now. I feel like doing relieved of all of the sports. The Olympics will be doing archery relived. Staging two thousand eight. She's just ain't doing on this fate going. Stop the Autry podcast. Doing the end is near. You can have asleep seen. Yes well I'm going to hold David to even I want a week off now that is that is is not my writing, but if it said. We need to on that. You know it doesn't apply to middle of the night. What's absolute? There's a moratorium on on that. today, folks. We take you to the year. Twenty, fifteen. And a third round match between eventual champion Serena Williams, and then British number one had the watson a much which ended up defining that Wimbledon Fits Serena in in some ways defining the extraordinary and dramatic year that she had on tour in twenty, fifteen and much that kind of. Defines Wimbledon in some ways we'll certainly encapsulates Wimbledon the the sun, setting over just resplendent center court with. British ten tennis fans out in force getting behind a plucky Brit that half in the mid never heard of that morning. It's. It's Wimbledon all over. Isn't it? And I think I don't WanNa. Put words in your mouth David. That's probably what made you miss it because what we've just watched so sums up so many of the things that we love about tennis I would say that's true. I also think it's it really does encapsulate the the Wimbledon that I knew as a kid, and as a teenager before Tim Henman came along when British though there was a big gap where? I had not known British contenders for the title. In on the women's side in before my time to be non-journalist Virginia, Wade and Sue Barker, won the French Open, but would never really perform to that level at Wimbledon. So, Strapped my formative years following the sport, Jeremy Bates had a good run in ninety two got to the second week had match points didn't manage to tighten them against gay full Jay. And there were a lot of those sort of moments. There are a lot of single standout moments of a player. Would make them. National News as back page. front-page news even plays like Andrew Castle. You got to eighty in the world that had a match against mats. Wilander that back then was hyping him to to a level. The even he didn't think was was appropriate. Time member in in the Post match press conference that that he did he. He guys this great line. After losing the final against Philander, he was two. It's one up for landing world number, one, nine, thousand, nine, hundred sixty, says he said. Let's just take it easy here I. Mean I lost and. That's that says a lot. Ready I think you know he. He was realistic enough to know and I remember Chris Bailey in nineteen ninety-three. Playing Goran Ivanisevic and the whole nation just stopped, it was nine seven in the fifth set twenty tonight night, the whole nation, stopping for about four hours just to watch this moments, and and he became a national celebrity in a single day. People had I mean it's way more than what Heather Watson inexperienced here in terms of going from somebody nobody had ever heard of Watson was on the map to some degree. This took it to another level question, but Bailey was an complete unknown and then suddenly. I remembering, going on BBC grandstand the next day with death Lynam the presenter who? Asking about his life and said, what did you go friend thinkable list and he said. I'm. GonNa go. I haven't got a girlfriend. And then suddenly the BBC was just inundated with letters from people offering their services his girlfriend. Services! Okay maybe that wasn't quite. Home. He told me he told me because he covered the Australian. Open with us for BBC radio for number years, and he told me that that night he went into Wimbledon village walked into a restaurant with a friend of his and the entire. Pub and restaurant just stopped what it was doing and turned around and just stead at him. and. He'd never experienced anything like like not at all until.

Venus Williams - Game Changer
"Hello everyone can t the tennis podcast day. Eleven of Wimbledon relived would have been women's Semifinals Day Wimbledon and would probably have been under the reef because looking out of my window in Putney, which is a? Mile and a half ish down the road from us, W nineteen is in miserable. Say That's great. Thank you, British weather for making some twenty twenty. Just that little bit extra great. But not to worry because. David Matt to talk tennis with. Seven hundred episodes David you just told me. We actually can mark a milestone because we've remembered it before recording rather than fully seconds off the recording. Yeah, we! We've celebrated five hundred, six, hundred one in the past. So yeah I'm fin quite proud. You know it. It draws me when you say it's women's semifinal state today because I'd kind of I'd forgotten that in as much as I'm so used to now talking about classic matches with you both watching them. We've just watched another one to the BBC of. Matches on every day that they're showing Wimbledon doing their own stuff online streaming matches, which is the one good thing I take from this whole period is the suddenly. The vast archive is just being. Put out there for everybody to enjoy, but I had forgotten. That is still Wimbledon and today would have been women's semifinals, and that makes me quite sad, yeah. I, wish I wish I could forget I get the impression that perhaps you haven't forgotten in the optimistic. Every cloud silver lining way that David. I Dunno, I kind of have in a way, I'm just so so invested in what we're doing. The the usual schedule of Wimbledon isn't isn't really in my mind so much. Just me then okay. Trip back to two thousand and five when. Storm strong was winning his seventh consecutive Tour de France title. Yup? The three hundred eighty made its first flight at the live eight concerts. Good friend of mine went to live eight in Hyde Park and she says it was mostly great until sting came on early evening when everyone was pissed in party made and some new material. Juno live eight is when I discovered pink Floyd and realized I two thousand. David Luiz discovered. It's. Matt's now. Sort of got me to to realize that I actually need to listen to albums full of Bruce springsteen and not just judge. We. Born in the USA. Correct. Correct get on that David's It was also the year that Britain implemented. The civil partnerships axe to include same-sex partnerships. It was the year that London won the rights to host the twenty twelve Olympics. And the xbox three sixty was released Oh and Pope John Paul the second died. There's a few. We've already done it two thousand and five much at the French. Open say these are these events that we didn't mention I around, so that was T-, thousand five I was working. My First Wimbledon as an employee I was a bull store assistant. Under the employees of one Derek Dimmer? Who was the head of the bull store at Wimbledon in done that job with his wife? Centuries I think. It was it was a job. which largely comprised heavy lifting and I loved it I couldn't believe my luck that I was working Wimbledon, even they. My primary job was lifting boxes of tennis balls and wandering around the orange practice with bin bag, asking players and coaches. If I could collect, they used balls of the practice, so they could be resolved to charity. I thought that was the best job in the world and I could not believe my luck and I went back the next year as as head bull. Store Assistant I was GONNA. Say You assumed to be promoted? Yeah, that was my first promotion and that I was GONNA. Ask You if you did a good job with whether you got a good review. Turns ends. It did I mean there's not? Much that can go wrong with putting balls and have been bank. But it didn't go wrong, and honestly I just. I thought asking asking. Tim Henman if he was finished with these tennis. Balls are just so. That was the coolest thing in the world. I thought I was the coolest person in the world getting to do that job.

Is Strange to think that in an alternate universe rule experiencing the busiest most hectic day, if the tennis calendar down the road, well down the road from me, and that's w nineteen and instead well I didn't know about you, but I'm something my safer why I'm dressed. I was GONNA. Say My pants spur. I'm dressed, but I'm certainly not in A. Poised and ready to. Go on the tally or anything. I mean it is a very different university living in. The the same time I still find myself trying to crowbar these matches into to be able to watch them all in time because we just watched four hours of a match for today's podcast, having recorded yesterday's show, and then we've got tomorrow's look forward to I mean look I'm having the time of my life. I'm relive I'm reliving two thousand and one and loving every single minute of it, but yeah around actually making meals for children and go into the pollock, and all that sort of thing I am struggling a bit to fit it all in hence sleep out today we spending. We're dwelling quite a while in in two thousand and one land. Aren't we today tomorrow? Yeah and it turns out that that's important. Because David didn't see two thousand one Wimbledon. Much of two thousand and one full stop you in a windowless room in the ASS. End of Germany awesome thing. Date I did I missed the entirety of the two thousand one Wimbledon until the final which we'll get onto more tomorrow when we, she watched that as one of them it because the woman doing tomorrow is the two thousand and one men's singles final between Goran, Ivanisevic and Pat, rafter today it's Pete Sampras against Roger Federer in the fourth round, but yet the time. Time I was in my fourth year working for the ACP tool I'd been communications manager for three and a half years traveling around I had informed the powers that be that I would like to have got writing and interviewing and all that sort of thing, and they said okay. Then you can go work on this new thing that we've got called a website. And it's and we produce it in Hamburg Germany. So off. You go to the office that. Germany. Not the end of anywhere I thought it was somewhere a little more. Than that. Politically, it was delightful, delightful The office was Nelson somewhere. And Anyway I'm sitting and get there and I'm like we get to the fourth round magic Monday manic Monday and I'm thinking right. There's a lot of crack matches on here. This Roger Federer against Pete Sampras Tim Henman lighter. which channel is it on here in Germany? And they said it's on premiere I said all right. Where's where's that said? We haven't got that one. So. So I was a little bit dubbed by this and frantically trying to think. How do I get out of this job? But. I've signed up for the rest of the entire week until the weekend when I would go off to Gustad for the tournament that. So anyway, that's when I discovered that actually it was available on BBC radio through their website in inverted commas I that I'd never heard of before, but anyway so I was able to listen to the BBC radio coverage throughout the rest of the week, and that's what made me decide. That I wanted to be a commentator right and that week. And he fight off emails to to the commentators he'd be listening to. You. Yeah Yeah, Inkatha. Who is the tennis correspondent? Richard Evans, very long time experienced respected journalist and reporter send the Sunday Times tennis correspondent Dana coincide of the BBC. And they brought the championships alive for me over in Germany and I mean that's what they do. That's what the job of the radio commentator is for people who can't say to try to bring it alive and. It did the job for me. It made it magical I mean I. I actually think that Wimbledon. If you think of Tim Henman's run as well and everything else that went into it, it was one of the all time. Great. Wimbledon's including the ending. And to listen to it on the radio where your mind is having to do the job for you, because you can't see it, using the words, they they describe and you conjuring images on the back of those words, it makes even more mystical and fantastical David Law.

The Big Debate
"Hello Ladies and Gentlemen Welcome to the passing shot tennis caused by fans. My name's Joke Kelly. I'm Kim McKenzie and today on the big debate we're discussing the greatest players to never have won a singles Grand Slam title. Take your seats. Thank you everybody hype you while Hyppia Safe On. What would it be today? The very star of the French Open Garros Second Grand Slam off the season. Obviously we have no live at is to catch up on what main came have decided to do in. This episode is commemorated. The occasion by looking back at some of the best players to have never won a grand slam singles title. And it's nothing is fair to say it's quite Alexi List that we've we've captured and are few surprising. Names bad did about is the yeah. We've had a lot of suggestions for our listeners and followers say thank you very much for sharing your thoughts and we have had some niche suggestion straight in as well. I'm actually trying to think plays on these lists. Yeah A lot. More names came up that I was actually wanting to and I mean really one of the questions is where do you draw the line? How do you quantify like how many slam final how many titles players had to have one career ranking? They had to achieve to cut be considered good enough To have been capable of winning slam. Is it how close they came and in a final. Is it just what they did in terms of the rest of their career that you could kind of define it? Let's say we'll be looking into this more detail but yeah it's it's quite an impressive list of talent on this list and makes you realize actually how perhaps unjust sport can be when some of our favorite players never quite managed to go all the way exactly and as he said I could this list dominate at Alex. Verify think if that career they will at some point be able to kind of break that that grandson duck. We're going to start actually with a really popular answer. The calls one of one of the first thing that came into my head. It was one of the first that came into of our listeners. Had as well and that player is David Nalbandian. Who the me as one of those payers who do not doubt that he had the technical ability to win a Grand Slam. It was more. I think the injuries him. I think this is fiscal outlook or school. He was quite stocky and made. Now bandying was one of those players. Where yes he? He could be anyone on his day. He was let down by injuries. And the fact the his maneuverability around the court wasn't wasn't the greatest. Yeah I would agree. I think now found him probably gave into the list of being too injury. Prone to to capture title assertively. He was around before the dominance of of the big three m federal was kind of coming to the scene of course but Sam either he was before when the era of Jovic in middle kind of say dominating everything when you look back at what he actually achieved. It's very impressive. Though he was the the only Argentinian in history to reach semifinals Al Slams and even just reached semi-finals and more at all is is a feat in itself and oversee most famous he reached the Wimbledon final thousand. T- leasings Lleyton Hewitt which you okay. This was his best opportunity to witness lamb. However I think in this final you look at the score line and it was so comprehensive. He think if he wasn't capable of kind of doing more on the day at such a kind of big opportunity. I know this question marks around kind of whether he really sees the moment because slates near be like six one six three six two very straightforward line and this was the tournament. Schley going back to this two thousand Buddha. The top seventeen seeds were knocked out before the fourth round. It was only Asian. You and Tim Henman. It will get onto later. That actually came through so you think ooh found in. I don't know I guess maybe even getting to the final was a bit of a stroke of luck giving given that he was Didn't he wasn't having to play top top names to get that far. Sipa houses move reflection of that but yes that very consistent across the Sam's reaching the semi of old of them and the fact that he he was able to be the big three as well. I mean we talked about it in a in a recent Poe cost about the fact that he. He's the only player to beat in the Big Three in one tournament. In in Madrid. I think he'd be Federa Djokovic and the Dow so he was able to kind of know only just do it on one occasion. He was able to come string great consistency across. You know what you would need at a grand slam across. Two weeks is just yeah. You almost fell the loss hurdle as he said. He got to the semi finals of L. Better every Grand Slam and I think it's just a bit of a shame that he got so far but doesn't really have a lot to show for it in terms of in terms of actual titles and that two thousand eighteen. Would you look at the George? Dd that kind of that was potentially could have been his. May I know kind of you know? He's up against the world number one. The Best Player Lleyton Hewitt. But certainly you know how to kind of solve easiest drawer to get to the final to go out. So comprehensively was almost shabelle on his part.

"He looks up at me says larry. I just played the best set. I've ever played from the back court. I said yeah what's that telling you rocket scientists. What do you do the cia. That's all i said he served and volleyed the next two sets one three three and won the tournament so he was smart enough to make an adjustment okay but but you know if you look if you look at these guys going on the court and because i mean i think it's i think it's really really bad for the game. They think you're taking a major part of the game away from figuring things out while you're playing and that's just maybe i'm old school. Maybe then i'm old school but i think it's not entertainment. He's an athlete figure it out. Get on the bus and then in the practice sessions okay and when you play sets at the time to stop play which i still do juniors. What do you think in here. Why would you keep making that same play. When you're oh and seventeen doing it and you keep doing it so that's where you have to make headway than the practice sessions not while it's going going on in the heat of the battle so that's just my opinion david on that on that subject. That's fair enough fair. My question is here larry and and it is obviously you've coached. Now against federal you mentioned the dow you've coached against jackovitch. They are now within two grand slams of ovation the federal twenty eighteen sixteen yes. Who do you regard as the greatest. Where do you think they will finish in terms of grand slam in total one other thing. I want to jump back a little bit. <hes> roddick beat djokovic five times in row when i was with him before <hes> <hes> joke of it's one on his run so andy had a very very good record against djokovic defaulted a few times in that he just you know every time it got down to where he would like like get into a dog fight 'cause andy wants to bring it to a dogfight mckay and and so he had a very very good <hes> record against joker <hes> until it kind of blew apart <hes> you actually when he lost to him in the quarterfinals of u._s. u._s. Open then heating five times in a row after that there was there was there was something kind of clicked with andy in do very well with joker but i'm gonna make a prediction right now. Jokers gonna have the most slams with endgame. If you're asking me who's gonna be the one. I think rafa can still a win on the clay. I think he can win. <hes> that tournament a couple more times believe it or not but i think he's going to struggle when it gets best to five on a hard surface and on the grass <hes> roger <hes> you know he's you know he's still so he's still kicking in and and playing at the top three level so there's no reason why he can't win one or two more as well but jokers a lot younger. What is job thirty two yeah i mean it must be pretty extraordinary fee you having seen and coached against judge and seen andy roddick outlasted asked him and grind him and yet round. He's to see what he's become. I mean yeah he's in the thing they hold on joker back. If anything is between his ears i mean i'm not getting i think he's he seems to hold him back. Is maybe that thing that you have that belief factor or board or or you know. I mean there's no. I'm just gonna run this guy into the ground and i'm not what we saw. He sometimes press the panic button when there's no need to be present the panic button when he's got eighteen slam. How many slam sixteen sixteen okay got sixteen to eighteen and twenty. Is that how it goes at twenty to twenty yeah so i mean so and he's so much younger than these guys if he if he doesn't let his mind get in the way and that's how we took that hi it's for a year and a half otherwise he would. He took like vacation okay now. He's back but he's still let me tell you when you have that ability..
"henman" Discussed on The Tennis Podcast
"Day. Of course i said i'm not gonna say one thing mccain i as an in this interview you know <hes> i i. I'm not saying anything <hes> and after an hour <hes> i couldn't help myself is and we started talking about his back in and and he said to me. You better know what the hell you're talking about. If you want to start changing strokes on i said let me tell you one thing. That's not gonna work. What you're doing right there. 'cause i mean i've been around a lot of great backhand kafelnikov a lot of certain things with footwork and think preparation ratio on your backhand that two handers do and he didn't do and he said i said what do you think about. He said i just see the ball hit ball and my response was what are you a caveman. I said that's not how you go about. Having something that repeats okay you you gotta think about you picking your feet up getting over to spot and being able to get behind the ball to redirected now if you just lunge and slap and flap and but that was our first meeting i and i said to myself oh. We're going to have a problem here but andy and he's one of these guys he he. He says something he might not like the here but he will will implement because he knows he's going to get better. After he hears it. He might not want to hear it so you can't be scared to say it without being you know something like it's going to affect your relationship or your job or whatever it is. He's one of these kind of guys like john. Mack may not like here the the truth but what he hears hit it hit opens him up and then then he goes then he goes to work this guy. I would say do an after we got some trust factor in after a few weeks he he he every day he would say okay. What do two things to focus on today larry. I don't wanna bunch of you know mumbo jumbo two things okay could get your left foot over there on the back end it up. Pick it up you that has to move left whatever it might be okay on the volley whatever it might and he would say okay. Hey great..
"henman" Discussed on The Tennis Podcast
"I'm here one six rounds. I'm in the seventh round. It's best if there's no way i'm lose and so maybe you know with marcello. He didn't like that type of pressure and 'cause he. You know like in the finals. Australia didn't even try in my opinion that was that was it was it was almost embarrassing that when he got the finals of his one and only slam <hes> and he didn't take that pressure on <hes> in in the way that the great ones do <hes> and so like you have any ma- maybe he was people. Call them always simpleton well. He came from out nowhere so cheesy any everything he did he earned okay and so he did it with the hard mile i call it and so when you go up that way <hes> you do you get tough and and <hes> and and and and there is a huge self-belief factor but he also had tremendous footwork tremendous fundamentals he took the ball early and he was six three <hes> you know any any could move and he could he. He played the whole court. Get an and i think that's where doubles helping me played you know he could end to end the point at the net that <hes> which which which a lot of guys can't do nowadays <hes>. I think really hurts them but you're right you. Have you ever had that element <hes> and they kind of call them simpleton but boy does that help when you're when you're out there <hes> by yourself you know four on the fifth knowing you gotta get it done. I mean looking at looking at all these guys you coached and they all seem to have many of them at least the the best time of their careers under your tutelage. Now i know tim number four in the world. I know he also had a pretty serious shoulder injury towards the end of your time together and he had a surgery but all the plan applies. Is there any feeling of regret that he didn't maybe do what you set out to do together as a team no oh i mean not for me. I mean i know he probably does as a coach now he he put in all the he did everything you possibly do <hes> david <hes> and you gotta look at it as a body of work when it's all done and said did i do everything i could. I think i think he did he did. I'm i'm i know he sits back. <hes> and probably regrets 'cause is one goal in life when he was eight years old at the win wimbledon. They have pictures of him in this and that <hes> but tim tim is he he he you know for me as a coach. He did everything he could a man and and that's all you can do. Everyone has no regrets you every career you can look back johnny mack the front all the way back in time <hes> he got everything he could out of the game tim henman a main for where what he had in his toolbox with with everything i know i'm and i look back at that and i said you really couldn't do you. No you know much more amend than than than what he did. He he also had the circus of us lots around him in britain and yes..

"Yes. He likes to be included and that's the beautiful thing about him. He is a very very nice guy. He is he just a little misunderstood in the little shy and he just he's not outspoken. Listen i was talking with someone he went on hall of fame he didn't even when he won the french open. He didn't go to the party afterwards and i drove him to the airport right. After when the australian i went to the party till three in the morning. You've got on the <hes> on his private. Plane flew back to karlsruhe. He's at. I don't need parties. I i got. I got another t. That's how his he didn't like to celebrate. He didn't like notoriety. He's he's very kind of almost introvert. He likes to be kind of absorb it himself. He would say we did it. Blah blah blah and that was it david he he he didn't like hoopla and i'm a little bit different when you work that hard to attain something that actually comes to fruition not many people i mean can opportunity the <hes> and that's kind of the sad thing with marcello even when he got the number one us looking at a whole different angle that i was <hes> and that probably didn't sit very well with them but yeah he's a great guy he he he he now opening up because you're not behind the eight ball. You know 'cause every week david. You have this in the old days not so much now. I don't think they have the mentality. It bought a roddick's. One sane was larry. I don't lose two guys rank lower than me so get that through your head and so i said okay we're going to that level. We're going to johnny max level okay. I said and i like that. I love that challenge. Yesterday was the same way i don't lose. Did these guys ranked below me nowadays. They don't really do that and that's kind of you know. This game is a tough physical mental game and <hes> i. I love guys like that and i've had a lot of difficult guys like that but i've always <hes> you know admired guys. It'll take on that responsibility because every week they're trying to prepare for another event trying to get ready because i'm not i i got. I got to win this next. That's always about that. It's never it's never ending so you either have to deal with that. <hes> in whatever and make it fun which it is 'cause hard work can be a lot of fun and it kind of grows on you and <hes> you know and then you get used to you know the success in being able to <hes> matt back that up weekend week out you you couldn't have gone from three more different characters than john mcenroe marcelo rios and yevgeny kafelnikov to the next man. You coached tim henman. I mean this is a conversation. You will not remember uh-huh but i remember sitting in. I think some potent with you in about nine hundred eighty four nine thousand nine and it was in a cafeteria and we were watching henman and reading reading a column about henman in the british papers new you clay animated about the fact that he needs to stop hanging around with pete sampras and hitting big forehands and he needed to play light stephan edberg like the old school seven volumes and then that that was about two years earlier and then about two three years later. You ended up coaching tim did you is that what you then try to instill still when you did take either. Tim was probably one of the most gifted athletes ever to pick up a tennis racket. I dunno people. That really really don't understand what he could do. You know when <hes> he played squash..

"Today. We don't know what it is <hes> but i agree with robert that you know the the the tim henman option is is massively high price gambit for beijing at a time when it's not obvious that the regime could survive if that you know you have a trade war you have slowing economy. You have people who are you know who tolerate if you like the regime but not there's not a lot of i love the party. The party has decided that you know muscular. Nationalism is it is the story that it will give the people but the longer this goes on the more it leaks into into china the more you know it gives people ideas about what what values are whether you know what what hong kong once couldn't we have it too so you know we're a long way off that but but the party obviously thinks about that a great deal and looks at its options and there will come a point when it it it has to take action again agree with robert that if you can find another way of dealing with this it absolutely will and that could be the you know stepping up the arrests of <hes> of activists that could be a mixture of of bribery and intimidation but it's gone a long way and i it's hard to see the people on the streets of hong kong being entirely satisfied with anything less than some cast iron guarantees that there will will be no further erosion of one country two systems and before its time robot. I is this past the point at which a face-saving compromise it's not a climbdown from beijing is an option whether it is formally announcing that they're just going to bury this extradition bill the the compromise originally originally put forward by carrie. Lam hong kong's chief executive was just that we'll we'll kind of. Put it on ice. We won't really pursue it. <hes> if beijing were to a sort of overrule her on that front fronton just say okay fair enough. We didn't really care about it all that much anyway. It wasn't that big a deal. Would that get everybody to go home at this point or because it often happens ends with protests they do start feeding on themselves and that's that's always quite a weird point as well because they can often lose sight of whatever point it was. They were actually trying and merck. I think that what i detect in the world media forum which they've done brilliantly the protesters is that they have a gain gain to use an absolutely key strategic principle they have identified at the center of gravity and the the weather carrie reliance stays or whether there's disagreement saying actually she had fulfilled our <hes> aims and objectives from beijing beyond that it's beyond the extradition addition law what they have got and they have thrown into a world jury very successfully. This is about a one country to to to systems and they've got that on the table. One wonders how much in beijing they really do realize this because i talked to two or three three absolutely they do exist <hes> in u._k..

"To to give her that opportunity and it was a bit of a step into the unknown but having looked to past results and seen the level she was playing it was amazing to see her sort of breeze through qualifying when I lost round one on one against the top seed and then join against against Venus so that's been an incredible story <hes> for Wimbledon and I think she's going to continue to be an amazing story raw score. You want to weigh in on how often she should play or should we leave that. I think just balance you know <hes> looking at <hes> <hes> and you know how mentally and physically <hes> just just to remain patient. She's going to be a <hes>. She's going to be an incredible player. She doesn't need to Russia but she's got great. People around <hes> I spoke to her parents on several occasions and then you know with the likes of Tony and feel like there's a real infrastructure there. Nobody's using her. Actually they can look long term. This isn't some this isn't sort of make hay while a sunshine. This is this is this is GonNa be a huge career and she's got to make sure that you know he doesn't push yourself too much to get injuries and setbacks but it's going to be on shine still thirty seven now yeah great you're entirely too both reasonable and rational policy making but no pleasure we'll we'll keep in touch all right. Thanks to our guests. Tim Henman always good talking with Tim. <hes> that will do it for this. Week's podcast from Wimbledon.

"Which Hugh exactly this inequality quality of been lost on the you're talking about consistency the one that gets me every time I don't know if you have feelings about this is the U._S.? T._A.'s strange and perplexing and fairly intense push for on-court thoughts on that yeah. It's <hes> it's something I feel extremely strongly about. <hes> I wrote <hes> before the French Open to thirty players ex players <hes> really to <hes> you. you know get some some more opinions from people that are actually played the game and <hes> i haven't had one i probably had a dozen twelve fifteen rick lies from players and explain i have one person male female supporting the notion that uncle coaching is good for us ball is the one unique characteristic is that when you all on the field of play you've gotta work it out for yourself and you know this championships <hes> we've had some unbelievable matches both men and women some great storylines and i don't think in any way to have a coach and we'll can on the core or shouting from the sidelines would have but they all do it that's that's that's essentially been so check this morning to see if there had been <hes> <hes> and in the women's that being three coaching violations all in doubles and quite interesting two hundred fifty one two hundred fifty one singles matches so far yes so does does coaching go on i'm not going to sit here and deny that you know if they if the encouragement of clapping and a cool of move your feet is that coaching i would say it is coaches <hes> is it difficult to sort of stamp tarzi artsy absolutely but is that going to have a massive impact i don't think it is so much but coach walking on the call or coach holding up signs giving signals before every point i think the horrific or coming on and and yelling yelling in russian a different language the in not many people understand <hes> so i'm you know i know wimbledon absolutely categoric they are completely against and listening to a lot of other people i think the feeling is is <hes> is a coastal so if you were if you were thinking about a change in other majors were categorically against it and would that cause you to think long and hard about preceding muniz is there a solidarity dougherty among the majors of well i think there is <hes> the moment because the u._s._d._a. <hes> seemed like they've been keen to implement obviously there that their rhetoric changed because <hes> they had requested with the i._t. after a have perhaps the opportunity of uncle coaching in the main tour events and then that seems to have been withdrawn and so i'm not a hundred percent sure exactly where they stand but i absolutely can't go ahead you know where the all england stand and where i stand just seemed like this relationship among the majors is something that i I WANNA get more involved in and you know we have a lot of expertise around boardroom and I'd like to think that my expertise in tennis is in Tennessee and so this is the landscape I want to be more involved in and I think there are other tennis people at the other slams who want to be involved in that dot and I think that can only be a good thing. I think when tennis people all around the full talking about tennis issues that can only be Gospel is there are lots of people that never played the game around the table and that includes the idea of making trying to make decisions for the sport and they've never played the game all right. Finally we've got two more rounds to go men and women yet overall very good yeah yeah I think that's being <hes> a real cross section of stories a lot of upsets in the men's early doors with it's very fast team all all losing the big three showing that dominance but again going back to the cocoa goals. I was going to get it right but <hes> you know that one was was on our radar. <hes> you know quite a long time in advance. Probably through the help of teammate Tony God's sake you wear exactly and so following her results and looking the other options we're very happy.

"I do vaguely. I remember seeing replays of it in slow motion from every angle that the BBC had to offer, and they were sort of going. Hey, wouldn't it be great if there was some sort of technology that kids determine but? Glove. Toget- Ferrara to tell us what is planet for marriage. Any the cool mid last week. No plan yet. So that's interesting. You, perhaps, suggesting that he might bring some sort of gross Colton house to kill age. Or do you think it's more just well comforts and I mean what a new voice gonna thing because Goran did back in the day was get Chillington hit towns. Didn't they go for his shots? But the my mind goes back to about ten twelve years ago when. Wayne fair told me that he that Tim Henman really frustrated him on grass those in the latter stages of Tim's career because he stopped serving volleying, he said, you know, you've got one of the best seven volumes in the game in Tim Henman and, and he doesn't do it anymore. He's staying at the back of the car, and he says, I don't understand it. You says Stephan at beg used to believe in serve and volley. So he did it in an and I remember asking Tim when I said this about you, what do you think? And he said. I know what he means. But the, the conditions of change is not the same grass-court tennis isn't what it was when I started planet. So I'm just wondering whether Ferraro will try and get Chile to the net. More is coming back into fashion, isn't it? I mean all these young old youngsters. It's very trendy to be over the net and to be playing doubles into be keen to ho ho new skills. I mean we've had a decade or so with where it's been I mean someplace if been adept at the net. Plenty of them, but it's been. It's been not unusual to have a complete blacks book in your game. You know, there have been pleased that just done it, what they're doing than they're really have. And I think that's going a fashion. Now, I think having any kind of hole in new game is, is not cool difference maker, isn't it differentiate yourself from the baselines, and it's actually struck me with Medvedev today. I had some really nice touches at the net which I've never seen from him before he is. So in the mix isn't he, he really was impressed with them. Just so like the word that always thought always think of with Medvedev's deceptive like to watch him why I just the fundamental components of his game. Don't impress me here. But we put them all together alternative on summer. Omar is on spectacular. Isn't it? Effective. And I and I think he's in the bottom half of the draw with Chile and Anderson who we've spoken about, might might get confidence might get form but it feels like a really, really open. Drove but especially bottom of a draw the being the Boston half than the Paul. Yeah. And but full Evans against the Brinker. Oh, what a magic is the remaining bottom Hof. First rounder be played first up tomorrow has that ever been better round, one order of ply them, what there is. I mean just. Let's just go through it very quickly Stanford Rinker against Donovan's, then is it Kyle Edmund yet. No. Rush drink. Plays Evans have ring del Patricia valve sit surpass Edmund Dimitrov Ohio. Elliot's seem. Yes. As we and clock on cou one future vici against Filipino. Lopez then militia around it. She against Mark chicken out to then Nick curious against Andrine men arena, and then this desert matches as well on the psycho, it's Alex de minora against the sped, Anees unquote, five. Let's remember the Evans against the Franco was a third round match at the US open in twenty sixteen Evans had a match point. So we'll veasley. You know, one point different and Evans would have gone on to win that USA..

"A major thing not only that. But. Beating traffic everywhere. Like, we all know that that restaurant that does great breakfast is is going to be packed and eight AM, but you roll in at eleven thirty and nobody's nobody's there. There's that movie. You wanna see it's going to be real crowded that night on Friday night. But you roll in at one in the afternoon, you got that the man see you have that. Now, there is the whole rhythm circadian rhythms of your life. Which is like, I don't know like. I don't know if you guys have been through. Phases of your life. Where you? When I was like nineteen and kind of rudderless and just had nothing. Just stay up to like four in the morning, just doing nothing. Yes. And wake up at noon, and it was like it was the worst part of your life. You're staying up doing nothing. There's nothing you could get done from eight pm to three AM. There's nothing you could do but eat bad food or drink bad beer or watch TV like there's nothing and then you'd sleep all day daylight was always a disappointment that one like like normal friend didn't inaudible the time. Yeah. I have a class at eight AM. You do that. Right. So the way God nature Nala one. It is go to bed at ten. Get up at six or go to bed at nine and get up at five. That's the way nature wants it sons down go to bed the further you get from that the further off you get from where God nature wants you to be. So if you wanna go to bed at midnight and get up at eight AM, that's fine. It's not that far off of that equation. But ten pm to six is probably when God has Henman.
