"Check getting their breathing wanted. So yeah look. I have no doubt dan evans will get it. Backer just i think it's a bit of an unknown quantity how long this'll take. That must be very very disconcerting. For him. I think it must be troubling time for him. I'd imagine and difficult to get matches ical so the moment because you're playing really good players at the ranking. He's he's asking me and i think it was. We're going to talk about washington the tournament that took place last week in a minute but he lost to him. Seven six six love against brandon nakashima. Who's had a great couple of weeks and reached finals. But still that's two first round losses and no cause for alarm in terms of losing a couple of matches as such. It's more that as you said. He had covert straight after wimbledon. he did not about. It stopped him training. And i'm sure this is the case for a lot of players that it just becomes really difficult to get yourself back up to speed against pleasure you haven't added and a yeah. I do remember some days mantra when i was there. could be just blisteringly-hot others were full of thunderstorms in lashing rain but We'll we'll we'll find out what what if acts are over the next week in in those couplets ornaments which are being played without roger. Federer and novak djokovic which in the from from men's perspective in toronto and now we've we've learned today. Cincinnati is also going to be without both of them. We you for a few days. That was the case for for federa. He had decided that he wasn't gonna be able to play either. Which i think is has to be a real concern. He cited the knee as the reason for it and he talked about a setback with that ahead of the olympics which he pulled out of jovic today has said what was painfully obvious to anybody watching tokyo. That is exhausted. He needs more time with his family to rest up and get ready. I still think. I it makes for a very interesting additional element to the story over the next few weeks to weather the that the players are building momentum. Whilst he's got his feet up makes any difference whatsoever. I thought you say whether he's going to play winston. Salem welsh. don't think it's out of the question I don't think he will listening. I think it's out of the question. Matt yeah i think so. I think in a statement he basically said. See your new york. It is interesting though. It does add an extra element of intrigue into what is already a fascinating story. The us open It's fact me that two things need to happen. In new york for djokovic to lose and one of those is djokovic being below par. And i think the stress of what he's trying to achieve could could cause that thing that's possible the other thing is if he doesn't have his form and just isn't playing well and look didn't play well to finish the olympics. He needs to rediscover. The form had earlier in the summer. I think in terms of someone being able to beat him the thing. Is this any really a handful of players. I would have thought that he could draw. In the first couple of rounds. That would trouble him. You know. I think curious would be outside. The seeds got fritz shin. Imagine a mean curious jerk which first round a little. I'm imagining you know. But there just aren't the threats. I think. I think that is probably a part of the reason why he feels comfortable doing this. He backs himself to rediscover the form and to get through those first few rounds of the us open and to get into that tournament. He knows himself he's one slams before when he's not had a lead in event it's gotta be the right decision I think it's the right decision as well. I mean i. I suppose i immediately look at it and just think wow not playing a leading tournament but effectively. Everything he's been playing is a lead in tournament because he's been playing so much and this is just the ultimate refresher isn't it recharge batteries and he. He's done it before. He went to wimbledon without playing on grass before it and he won it a coupla. Yeah yes. Of course. And i don't know i just think that he is. The worst thing that can happen to him is be in any way tied or jaded and he looked that immediately a in that moment where the match turned against vary. It was like is like a sudden moment where it just all gone all of his energy and he needs the maximum available to federal is just an extension of what we were discussing wimbledon. I think that he is in a. I think he's probably in a bad way. And i can't seem plane. Us open may. Maybe that's wrong. I just cannot see it and therefore who knows whether whether he can get himself match fit again. Guess we'll say but it just seems too much of a stretch to me. It of you think differently. I think this a scenario in which he the this setback this admission that he can't play any lead up tournament to the usa from which essentially is is an admission that he can't challenge for the us open. Even if he were physically able to play. I think maybe maybe that is the Rubicon crossed in terms of being the end. In which case then the decision is do. I play the. Us open just to play one last usa. Open i'm one last grand slam and feel like i'm going out on my terms now all inkling based on sort of loose intel but nothing firm in particular is that he intends to go out the labor cub Possibly this labor cup probably.

"How all manage to get on the same podcast together. Tonight is something has rather mystified me because katherine seems to be working around the clock for two straight weeks and and it's just another wonderful shift of work. This time for amazon prime video talking about the tennyson canada matt just sort of fits in and around katherine and myself. I don't really know how he's coping. And i've i've just come to portugal for for a week so i was sitting in the lobby at the moment with some some gentle music playing in the background. Maybe only i can here. But i have deliberately certain radi unglamorous location david's in as an active sensitivity to woods by very irrational self an unreal my unreasonable rules about the sending of glamorous holiday feta's to chat of sincere mattaya.

Okay all right because it moment saturday in an empty lobby with the ball behind me just for you and i'll be getting out of it hostage video. I really appreciate it david. That's what fourteen years of friendship and professional companionship. Does for you right well. Let's talk about tennis shall we. How are we both we all right. You've just done a day of canada. Catherine what's it. What's it look like from now. You're in a studio in london. But what does it look like. Witnessing these two tournaments i guess for the first time with the same rights holders because it was supposed to be last year wasn't it and it didn't happen. Yeah we'll from abroad. Cussing point of view. It's it's it still feels like a massive luxury to have the rights to both and not. She is the first time we've done. I mean will kind of jersey unique. Isn't it with the concurrent men's and women's and we've talked before i think we all just really loved that former. I really loved the two cities. The the alternating between men men's and women's each of them. I think that's brilliant. Yes just feels like a massive luxury the darting around and knowing that always be some decent much to go to. I mean. I'm sure at some point in the week that will be an inevitable downside of having to sacrifice showing one match in one gray much in favor of another but they're all available to be on the platform at least And yeah i i. I love these tournaments particularly love montreal. I've been there twice And that two years ago the last time the tournament withhold of course it was the men's event then and i love the city I love your the hospitality if that tournament. It's it's really right up. There is one of my favorites. I've got very happy. Sort of medvedev emerging memories. If if two years ago is the first time. I remember thinking ooh he could be quite interesting And yeah no. It's it's great. I have to keep stopping myself. Sort of accidentally talking about weightlifting. Because that's what that's what you've been doing. Yeah no exclusively weightlifting just out of the blue thanking thankfully for the views. I've been to montreal and toronto for the tournaments but both the atp tournaments a dance. I didn't do the the wti tournaments stink. Two thousand three was the first time for montreal and it was won by andy roddick just a couple of weeks before he went on the. Us open the double. Didn't with brad gilbert watching that david's dangle of the c. n. tower a point on the ground before that's i mean. They didn't let that happen. Which is what. I explained to my mum after up. Choice in the video of me dangling off the top of the c. n. intel. Well it's very easy to say off to the very glad i did it. I thought i was going to be a rockstar. Like gues- did this really. Gnarly thing was really gnarly. Pitcher was not cool. And actually i involuntarily began soaping away and could stopes the way around. I was with people that i didn't know that well in that i still have to see. Okay well then. I went to toronto in ten said. One time i've been and that was a tournaments. Which was won by. Andy murray and i think he might beaten down federal back to back to win. It is my recollection. Crying was the big. Four in the semis. The quite few times actually happened. I think you think they always reached the semifinals of every tournament. But that was actually quite a rare thing that they were all there and yeah. Mary came out on top kidney plumbing. That i was gonna say on the one who was there and i'm just about vaguely recall in that that might happen. That's got the actual stats. And oh and by the way there as well matto you. You're right very well thank you. Yes i just wanted to say catherine. I think you've done a fantastic job of not mixing up toronto montreal day. I feel like that is a big challenge. this week. I had a sketch pad in front of me on which i actually wrote. The broke. the words t for testosterone. Try and remember that the men were into onto the women. I just couldn't make it stick. My head was swirling with thoughts of modern pentathlon and canoe slalom. And i just couldn't. I couldn't fix it in my brain and and the era came over talk back instead. Just remember t- for testosterone and it got me through the day. Say thank you for remarking upon that what is your. What is your for him once. You got for testosterone then. The logical conclusion is m for women that works right. Let's talk about the actual tennyson showy. And there's been lots of. I think we start with them and just for start the event. Today the match i saw was dan evans. Being beaten handily by alexander public Who who looked brilliant titled many looked as though and he's still seem to be playing within himself. He is this guy we saw use stating trick shots and outrageous stuff and that was as close to percentage play full of rallies sending him to victory that i can remember but the other half of the story was that dan evans didn't didn't look anything like his normal self is about right. Yeah this offense. Quick difficult to from a bullet points of view. Because yes he did look really dialed in a never really wave it in that which. I'm not sure it's something i've ever ever properly seen. Before but equally. I i i thought dan evans to shoddy. If himself really there is no exuberance him there was no Scrappy nece and they just seemed to be no resilience there yes. He's a very stylish player. But actually what wins in much is all of those things rather than the the stylishness And and take them away in he can quite quite ordinary And so outgunned. It can look so out of his depth. I think And that that's a little bit what he looked like today. I'm quite sure he'll get it back. You know it seems you know klay cools in effect. I think he said he said kobe. And okay he's recovered from covert now but that doesn't mean it hasn't taken a lot out of his training and really disrupted his preparation for an extremely grueling portion of the season the the conditions in both toronto and montreal actually look incredibly tokyo esque. It must be just whole thinking territory for the players that are in tokyo and thought thank goodness. I've got out of that colder of fire and even in canada and it seems to be kind of identical conditions. Suffocating humidity. I i in teed j. contouring her hato remus evening officer about conditions and she said yeah. It's really sweaty retirements. When today three in montreal we saw a number of players on court getting the blood pressure checked today getting the pulse taken in the blood pressure..

"Ahead in the third and theme came back beat him despite the fact that he literally couldn't stand up at the end of the match both cramping up and so I went to fifth set tiebreaker and The Amoy think was slightly higher rank Bob one thing what's happened with Tennessee's for the last fifteen years every time you watch a major it's always. Djokovic Federer. Nidal, that two of those three would always be playing for the championship had two of the three did not take part in this event one because of injury one because of Covid, and then they went and kick Djokovic because he hit a ball toward one of the ball girls. That apparently is something that you can't do it. They throw you out of the entire events again. you had you had with too bad. There weren't any fans there and you do wonder I mean. Do you think this is GonNa be fans the US Open next year. That's macy's parade is only in two months I'm talking about next year. You just wonder when we're going to get to the point at which people said they don't you couldn't care less if you get covert. We've got this situation going on to the schools where some have opened others have not and as I said from the beginning if you're not willing to accept the fact that all sorts of people I gotta get called. But if you open up the schools that you may as well not open them up because that's what's going to happen. This thing is rather easily transmitted apparently. The good thing is that hardly anybody who gets it actually gets sick nothing happens to them. Unless you're seventy five years old, it have diabetes. You probably not ever going to know that you have the damn thing. which seems to be what's going on with the virus well, there's a situation that's occurred now in Germantown, one of the teachers apparently as tested positive for the taking the entire school, the virtual. And they're going and doing all the contact tracing that the teacher had contact with. The number of people have been pointing out to me if they're all wearing masks, how can they have contact with anyone? And if the problem is is that the teacher is seeing people outside of school social life and so on and got it they're they're the ones for all the fear that everybody had that the kids were going to be bringing the end of the schools and the teachers are going to be sick is the greater fear that the teachers are going to be breaking it into the school because they are not confining themselves to a limited group of people when they're away from school. In the meantime, the media keeps talking about cases when we don't have cases, we have tests. Well, there's a spike. Asaki County. The last time somebody died of Copen ocoee county was the middle of August. See, you have an increase in case numbers bought. That case numbers based on tests and it doesn't have anything to deal with us, and if nobody has died from the thing, you get asked the question what's the problem? The only reason many people know they have covered is because they test positive. It's hard to see a society that remains obsessed with a sickness. That nobody knows they have until they test positive for it because the symptoms hand in most cases to be so mitre. As for the changes in the culture. Given the fact that there is I think no end game at all here, and after cope, it goes away the next Kuroda virus said, this is not the first one that we've had is going to come down the pike and we ended up having this terrible fear at have these tests that are so effective in determining anybody that's got a trace of the virus it anywhere. What the long term plan is to be able to resume society. So, far, you've had most people in America sort of okay or sort of existing with not being able to do any of this stuff, but it's not long term sustainable in terms of the kind of economy that we have you can't keep running off a p p. forever. Policy now knows lots of people and the only because they've all tested and they yeah, the kids go to college and all of that stuff and the only reason that they know that they had it is because of the test if they hadn't had the test, they would not have known that they had it. So who cares? Who Cares. Some of the colleges are trying to put these restrictions on kids. They can't meet groups of more than twenty will that's an impossibility to enforce. You've got the situation at one of the dorms at Madison whether trying to quarantine the kids. The kids didn't want to put up with it and they ran home to Mommy and Daddy, and I don't blame them. You want to be quarantined to adore. DORMS are better now than they used to be but these they didn't even have any food there. I've argued from the beginning and I'm convinced now that the best thing that we ought to be doing about Calvin is other than for the elderly and at risk not a damn thing and simply resume society and in the long run that is going to be what has to happen, but we don't appear to be anywhere near willing to do that. The good thing that I have seen is in these schools where Kobe is broken out, the parents don't seem to be freaking out and the universities where it's gone on the kids don't seem to. Be Afraid at all because they all recognize that for them call that either means minor or no symptoms whatsoever therefore, who cares when you've been exposed since eleven to every manner of drug imaginable and your parents have been babying you over almost everything that you can think of being exposed something that doesn't even give you a sore throat is probably not the sort of thing that's GonNa Freak you out and it's certainly not the thing that is going to get a twenty year old decided that the not gonNa hang around a bunch of other kids. Go Milwaukee. This is the mark belling late afternoon show on news talk seven, thirty, W I S. Paul who's got a couple of daughters were younger and is the youngest one still in college or she? Oh, what's that? She's she's going for a massive. So she wasn't Whitewater now she's a uw out. Anyway. So He's more in touch with that age group that obviously most of the rest of us to be picking up is that you're saying essentially, kids are making fun of covert right. Now they lack any fear of it and this what's against striking is this is a generation that has been remember the what the kids at in college they're. They're under the millennials the millennials were the ones that were. So you know they're the ones running row of masks and so on. The ones that? Are Generate you know the generation coming up behind them those kids that are in the Public Schools Right now hacked off they have to wear the masks, their parents who want impersonate education the kids at Eric. College, that are chafing on these quarantines in the dorms and so on they seem to lack total. Fear of this. I just think that what's happened here is. This is the. Chicken little in the sky is Paul again kind of thing in which They've heard people say that this is GonNa kill you this is going to kill you this is going to kill you they see six of their friends didn't even know that they had got a positive test that they wonder why in the world you're screwing up my life and taking my youth and taking my college experience away from me Over, something we don't even know we have when we have it. So. There's a generational turn going on with regard to this and the point I've made. You see the same debate going on with regard to College Sports College football about. Forty teams played over the weekend out of the hundred and twenty or so major. Division One schools. The big ten is now talking about starting up in October. A lot of the players are furious that their schools are not allowing them. To play, say we're not afraid of this virus none of us get sick. Even when we have it, we want to be able to participate. You know it's one thing to tell a fifty seven year old guy that he has to wear a mask for your. Okay. The difference being fifty seven and fifty eight is nothing. But when you're nineteen or twenty losing your sophomore year in college is a big thing to loons. They all look like the pulse of the big ten looks like they. All everybody looks like idiots were still running around wearing masks when you Find somebody under the fifty who's keeling over diag-. This thing and again, I? Don't minimize for those of US those who get it get a bad case of but we all know that this is not. A virus that strikes everyone the same. If you're at risk can kill you and. That's something you can't get away from either. Paul said Silken it. No, it's not true. If you're at risk, it can kill you say at risk you're eighty five years old your got your major rest of dying from this. There is an interesting video I was GonNa talk about this at the end of the program because frankly I don't want you to watch it now and I'm still on the year but I've linked up on belling DOT COM did I send this deal? Yeah. there's a very interesting video that I found on the American Institute of Economic Research Website. From, he's a European. Statistics guy. Who? has tracked out the bar graphs in numerous countries of COVID. In terms of the increase in deaths in those countries. And he found that in each country, the spike in cold-case is a fraction. Of the spike that we have seen in other terrible outbreaks and none of them approaching what happened with the Spanish flu decades ago. And the point that he's made and I don't want to get overly technical on this but his point was this. In. Almost every one of those countries deaths were down in one, thousand, nine hundred, and the reason the desperate out in eighteen nineteen is those who very mild flu years across the globe. We didn't have a bad fluid eighteen. We didn't have a bad flu in one, thousand, nine, hundred. H One N. when was the last new one that came in that? was a significantly bad one. So that's being down in eighteen and nineteen point and I know that this sounds ghoulish but it struck me as really interesting and probably revelation. That the people who have. Imagined Humpty dumpty sitting on the wall there. Right. What is Humpty dumpty not need any kind of a wind gust. Were vulnerable. Whole maybe if there was a bad flu in eighteen or nineteen that would have killed. They didn't get that NOCCO punch. So at meant that there were more vulnerable to die this time around, which is why the focus of Kobe has been. So heavily on the elderly, the people who are most vulnerable this becomes nocco punch to their system that you know they killed them because they were killed by different NOCCO punch eighteen and nineteen because they were mild flu years. If you look at just that any track this by country after country after country after country, the countries that had the biggest increase in depth. This year primarily covid with the countries that actually declined in eighteen in one, thousand, nine, hundred death. Surf you simply smoothed everything out, you would have seen that was the same and then he also said you know there's been no indication at all that the wearing of masks social distancing. lockdowns at any of those things had any effect in any country at all. So it's a good statistical thing. Maybe it's a little who policy watch for some people but it's a very good video revolting up belly dot com I'd like you to check out after the program. All right. State Supreme Court ruled today on the Green Party case add. This is not good. Not Good on a number of levels in the biggest reason, it's not good is because it's another case in which Brian Hagedorn on his sold out and join the lefties. I've believe right now the Wisconsin Supreme Court has three conservatives three liberals. At a John Roberts. In the same way that at the United States Supreme Court Level John Roberts takes turns bouncing between the liberal and Conservative side Wisconsin Supreme Court has a guy who ran as a conservative Bryant. Haggard. WHO's going to sell us out about half the time. On a couple of the earlier cases they came down the pike. It was possible to argue. THAT HAG on simply being a minimalist at might might have had quirky reasons for voting with the Liberals. The ruling today on the Green Party's access to the presidential ballot is not one of them. It was a purely political decision by a guy who suckered a number of US conservatives into supporting when he ran for the State Supreme Court. So he didn't face a conservative challenger in primary election and has gotten on the Supreme Court and is now already tipped the ballots over.

So what's your final so my final is team. Team to eight. Medvedev against Jackovitch Djokovic to beat Federer purely just the fact that the Fed over five sets unkind with that. I've got Medvedev against us. I've got sits. The plastic tote Djokovic Federer back to back wins Gosh and I did listen. That's what that's what mother nature playing I mean. I know that this is getting a bit worried. I I know that that I mean. That's that's a human he. He beats him here last year. And I really did hoffer over federal beating in this time because I think that that is perfectly possible that sits the past bates one of them and then federal just takes over mops up the scraps I think that is perfectly possible but sit surpasses. Just got such a ravenous athlete. He wants it so much that I'd think he isn't like everybody else. He's going to win a match. Just think job done no. That's one of the steps now. I'm going to take another step. And when you saw him beat him at the O two. There aren't many athletes go head to ahead with federal and make federal. Look like that since the pastures looks like version two point. Oh physically I agree. I I just think that that match up from what we've seen so far. Federal sits a pass is all about whether federal can execute on the big points because last year Australian Open He created ten points. Didn't take any of them and the two I think it was sixteen until one he he he. He's able to read sits passes serve federal. Get into his service service games but the something being blocking from really executing on those big points now he did it when they played in Dubai and when they played in Basel and it doesn't matter when it doesn't matter quite so much any I mean that's the cost but it's we're talking levels as short and in both those matches. He took it to pass to the cleaners. I mean he he was just like he's got more even more options in his game than someone that sits pass. It was kind of the best federal. So I'm going to happen. Because I could the DJOKOVIC wrong okay okay. So what's your your title Djokovic. Beating team in the final that would be a crooked final to watch I would like to say. Ah You'll finally. There's also cracking Medvedev's beating sits pass with their history as well. Yeah Medvedev beating sits pass. Yeah hang on Medvedev. What does that surprise? I'm just confused by oppositional. Medvedev don't know whether you really rated him or aw think that it was all hot streak. I really right here but I think it could go either away with him. I think he an actually the press coinc- guy yesterday just definitely gave me confidence in him as an athlete that is going to not just just leave it where it is but I'm sort of waiting as well to find out what other players do with him because usually so you find that these very top players will figure out a little weakness or not. I was looking head to head against Federer and an easy. He's lost two very very one sided matches against Federer and. I wonder what his I'd like. I'd see that matchup now now that Medvedev's who he is you know In the future chip maybe we will so We've both got Serena Williams entitle. I've got Medvedev winning. The men's title Matt's has.

"You know that's a guy that if he had been totally locked in like an adult or Djokovic Federer he could have been probably one of the greats of all time if you go on Youtube and look at what he was doing with the ball. It was insane it was crazy and so you know people talk about you know the best of all time in and I agree these three guys now. The Big Three are probably the best three players of all time but the tennis was pretty darn good in my era as well and I think we're always partial to the era. We played but I always tell people. Now I think the big three now or the best but then when you go from light four down to fifteen. I think you could interchange those guys with players from ten fifteen twenty years ago. You know if you look at Boris Becker or Edberg or you look at videos these guys the way they served as the way they attacked and I know the game is different now but even rafter played rafter before he won the US Open. I played reside ski before he got to the finals of the US Open presents. He's serving one forty nine. Like what are these guys going to do? If if they're playing resent ski when he's hot or rasther. He was serving involving on clay. Getting semi's now. Of course he would have lost the dog klay but everybody else I think he would have given fits to on a neutral surface on fair hardcourt with the ball kicking up. And he's coming in on you pretty interesting. It's hard to compare you know generations but I think again after the big three. I think you could interchange a lot of these guys. I mean David Goffman amazing player but is a much different than Thomas Enquist. I don't think so no and yet speak the rafter. He was one of my idols. Growing up I just thought he was just amazing so Atlantic to a covert. Dinette was unbelievable and it was just really exciting to watch and maybe unwanted few who wishes he won Wimbledon. I know a lot of people went the other way for Goran but I really wish rafter would've won Wimbledon block. That was just me. Yeah it's interesting. Yeah he got a little tight in those matches he had. He had every chance to beat campuses well there and he his famous quotas. He told himself to relax. And he got even tighter and You know those are two winnable matches for him that probably at the. Us Open where he played better and more clutch that the US Open. He wanted ninety seven ninety eight the year that rafter one in ninety seven was his first. Grand Slam thousand a year. I played Chang in the second round. And Chang was number two in the world and Sampras lost maybe in the quarters of the semi so maybe around sixteen so it was. Chang was the top seed left in the draw. It was his Grand Slam to win because you had guided rafter in skis. Who had never Philipoussis but you would never want a grand slam yet and so king was supposed to win. He loses the rafter in the semi's in ninety seven in the famous picture of Carl Chang. Michael's brother and his coach sitting in the players box after Chiang lost a rafter for about two hours after the match. And they're just showing him sitting there and and when you look back on Chang's career Chang was never the same after that match and Rafter. That's when rafter elevated in came on the scene and again. I think if he had played those Wimbledon matches like he was playing at the US Open. He would have gotten that he would have gotten that title. Tightness is a funny thing. Isn't it affects us all and we can talk for hours about the Glory Days. Of course but Yeah fascinating stuff until me one other player before we move backwards logically Agassi. Did you practice with Agassi play Agassi? I never practiced with Agassi. So is this interesting thing again. Where in my era for whatever reason I felt like there were certain top players. That were not very approachable and then there were others that were very approachable and guys like Rafter Gustavo Kuerten. They were so chill in the locker room. Kind of how I picture. Maybe even better and and Jovovich Doll. They seem to be cordial with everyone and conversations and talk. Yes there's a time to be serious but Sampras and Agassi. It almost felt like they were a bit standoffish. Or You couldn't really touch them and so for me. I'm a bit of an introvert. I wasn't the type that would like go up and introduce myself and say hey you WanNa have hit or whatever so the ball never fell in my corner for me to hit with Agassi which which is unfortunate because that would have been that would have been fun but he was a little intimidating. I'll be honest. You know. He softened later in his career. But you know it's almost like these guys have this or this wall around them where you're not introduced by their agent or their coach. It's Kinda hard to penetrate that so never had that opportunity but when I did play better in Toronto when I practiced with him he had just won Wimbledon and he was. We were in Toronto for the Canadian open and he was sitting in the locker room and I had lost in qualifying so I was there a couple of days practicing and he was gonNA play he. Shem Rasi from Morocco. And he's a lefty so always. The lefty people would want to practice with if they were playing lefty so. I knew I was being used for my left hand and so I walked up to him. He didn't have a coach there. He didn't have his team for whatever reason he came over early on his own and I walked up to introduce myself. And he says Oh. Yeah I know you jeff and I was first of all. I was surprised I was. No you think these big guys. They're not gonNA know someone who's one fifty in the world but he said I know you and he's like yeah. I'd love to practice. We set the practice up. And at this time I was about twenty eight or twenty nine and I had this like Samurai ponytail Kinda like rafters to have or at one time. David Nalbandian used to have and I remember. We walked out to the practice court and I was walking behind him with my coach. Joseph O'Dwyer at the time and everyone all the fans are just following us. It's like this it's like he's like a Rockstar and in their twenty at me. 'cause they're like they didn't know who? I was but they're like Gosh. This guy's got this like Samurai Haircut and he looks pretty athletic. You know who is this guy so they kind of were? They didn't know who I was and then he just comes out there. He's got his racket bag over his shoulders. He looks like a junior tennis player. Running out to the court with a bag over his shoulders and Canada tennis balls. No coach with him which is probably the only time in his career. He hasn't had someone around him again. I don't know why that was and we've practiced and I ended up losing the set six two and I almost felt like he was in like first or second year and he still had more levels to go and he was on just cruise control and I was struck by how quickly he could explode up to the net. He was almost like a cat. Like if these stretched you out he would just be right on. Top of the net is the explosive power. I was also struck by. He would use that slice. Backhand cross court in the slice would stay so low and just like run through the court and as a lefty. I'm hitting a forehand cross-court sites. I'm hitting the floor hit and I had a choice here. Do I. Roll it back to his backhand and have him just RIPA backing down the line or do I take a risk and go down the line and have him run across in. Hit a running forehand. It's like pick your poison and so it really is remarkable like this isn't two thousand three so I mean these guys have gotten even better in the last fifteen years so I was overmatched. In that little practice said I felt in You know just a remarkable player. Obviously did you think just won't Wimbledon. Did you take this guy is going to go on to do? Great things or was there not taught if that you know when he was seventeen or eighteen. Somebody talked about this guy named Roger Federer and they said you need to go watch this guy play and he you know at the time he's probably ten in the world or fifteen in the world. I think he was eighteen or nineteen eighty. So I go out at the French Open. I don't remember. I think I must have lost in the qualities or maybe I. Maybe a year got into manger. I don't remember but I walked to go. Watch them play and he's playing Arazi actually and he put out one of the worst performances I have ever seen on a court fedor. He was flat he was pouty mopey. I was like this is the guy that they're talking about. This guy has no chance of doing anything and sure enough eighteen months later two years later. That's when he got his act together and jump a couple of levels and so then of course he won that I SLAM. And then you know you never know when a guy went to slam izzy one slam wonder or go on to achieve greatness so. I knew that he was very talented but I had no idea that he was going to do what he did back then. I don't think anybody would've known one more quick story before we shift to wherever you WANNA go when he goes back in time or you want to go forward in time. I was slated to play Raphael Doll at Wimbledon Year. Get Two thousand three two thousand four. I think it was two thousand and four so I kind of made my run on the tour where I broke the top hundred for the first time at the age of thirty two thousand or yeah because I would have been thirty. I'm a seventy-three birthday so yeah. I think it was the year yet. Lear year leading up to my birthday. But anyway I'm in the main draw Wimbledon. I think it was in two thousand four. The first time I was directly into the main draw Wimbledon. I qualified one other time in ninety six but in two thousand and four I was slated to play a doll and he was seventeen years old he had not one French Open debt and he burst onto the scene. Everyone was talking about him in here. I am having a chance to play him and ironically enough. When I broke the top hundred I had issues with my feet. I had planner fasciitis both east. I was basically playing all these big events and picking up the check because honestly I needed the money to survive out there and it was my first time ever being in the main draw these big events but I wasn't one hundred percent healthy. I was Kinda getting around and interestingly enough. Nidal got a stress fracture and so I didn't play it all. I played a lucky loser. I lost in the lucky loser in straight-sets but I never had that chance to play an adult but I I was supposed to play him. That would have been sweet to play in the Dow. It's just especially as as young seventeen year old would have been pretty good. Who did we have on the PODCAST? A few weeks ago. Florian Mayer. Sorry we flooring myron. He played in the dialed final. If a challenger I think he got smoked by Raph as a sixteen year old on us like the. The kid was just incredible under story. Remember where here story but it could have been Alex Actually I heard on different podcast where he turned up to practice with Rafa Raffles on the Hitler was like fifteen at the time and they got gone after.

He's twenty eight twenty six lifetime over Rafa so there's a part of him thinking just give me time.

I looked this up yet Mitch about I looked this up yesterday because it was interesting. 'cause I just wanted to see what the Wimbledon -ness of these three guys was okay meaning. What have they done and let me just I won't take I won't wear out with us? It's fascinating okay. They played twenty three Wimbledon finals among them think about that for a second. Okay Papa Fed Djokovic Federer has won eight against the following players. Mark Philipoussis says three Roddick's tuna Andy Murray Merrin Chile. He lost three two joker in one to Rafa. That's Twelve Wimbledon finals and just for him. Okay Rafa beat Fed wants be Tomas burdette's once lost to to fed one joker and joker it. It's different from Rogers record but percentage wise. It's better he's won. Five of the six Wimbledon finals. He's played three against the greatest men's champion in the history of the place Roger Federer won against Kevin Anderson one against Rafa. He lost one to Andy Murray. It is again you can throw Mitch and Bob. You could throw a blanket over these guys. Nothing like this remotely will ever happen in the sport ever again. I loved it when he <hes> he illusion to what Roger have been talking about being thirty seven and I WANNA be one of those thirty seven. I thought that the legitimate respect and admiration at they have Barker said you've given it's a match will never forget and Roger. I WANNA forget it. I get it right now. Another thing I'm thinking about as always there is that there this where where does English rank in their water of languages and learn how effortless they speak this language with no is probably I would say being that federal is Swiss. It's gotTa be third or fourth and for Jovovich. It could be second but I wouldn't be surprised if it's just thirty Mitch Mitch. You Travel More Bob Mitch about this. I think Federer I may be wrong about this but I think Federer's native tongue is isn't it called Swish German. I it's it's isn't it some hybrid of depends on where he he he grew up part of Switzerland. Speak that was German parts of its big French. Everybody speaks English there in addition yeah so I mean yeah look at you could spend forever talking about how admirable it is that everyone around the world manages speak our language and we don't speak anybody else's but but you know you you you mentioned their ages and that's a good transition over to the women's side because thirty seven thirty eight <hes> that's where Serena Williams Williams is and I thought Serena Williams got pretty lucky draw into the final.

I'm Doug Gottlieb filling in for Collin. She's Rachel. Bonetto will hear from her in a moment in a moment. You only get a moment just, you know, thank God. I only get that moment. There's been talk of this struggle that some Laker fans have, and this is the hard part about being a fan, right? Is like, wait, wait. I'm supposed to supposed to be a LeBron fan now because he plays for us when it didn't like LeBron before I've stated this time to get one of the the true crimes. The NFL is we haven't had Rogers versus Brady. I know they don't actually match up against one another, but wouldn't you like to see Rogers Brady? It's one of the great things about boxing whenever they get their stuff together. Granted we didn't see pack. Yeah, Mayweather until pack yells. Well, past his prime. It's one of the great things about tennis. Is that organically? We do see the best Federer a dull mazing right? Djokovic Federer Djokovic Schnee doll mazing. It's like a boxing match only with tennis rackets and a ball. Basically played in a country club setting, but nonetheless, we never, we never got fill in tiger paired together. Sunday, although fill in tiger are gonna play for that made for TV event around thanksgiving. So there are things we never got Kobe versus the Brown we didn't. And Kobe was a guy shack. They sent shack away and Coby after wanting to be traded away, turns it around wins championships. And even though it was ending poorly because of injuries and a terrible contract and mismanagement, and partially because Kobe didn't have it anymore. And he wasn't seen as a guy that other people at that point, his career wanna play with it ended terribly. His last season, he had the lowest effective field goal percentage in the league for a starter. This Kobe Bryant, a first ballot hall of Famer when the all time, great players and yet sixty points Mamba out perfect moment to end an incredible career which he only played for one team. Now LeBron comes to town. And because I guess because there's a mural that was painted and then painted over and then defy defaced several times over there's this dot that Laker fans are really struggling. I can't believe the Braun is a Laker. Was this yesterday on rich Eisen, the rich Eisen show. Jeanie Buss had this to say about LEGO fans who don't welcome in LeBron James. They're not Laker fans if they're not happy about LeBron joining the team. So there was some unrest and some uneasiness, and I just think those are troublemakers that that. You know, they, they don't get it. First thing is I, I really believe this. I really believe I live in southern California. I don't know anyone who's not fired up about LeBron James come to LA like these people don't actually exist and you're like, well, I saw it on a mural like there's plenty of murals that are defaced in Los Angeles it. No. I mean, painting over graffiti with graffiti is kind of a thing which I hate like, I'm not. I'm not a tagger guy like And he's he's like, like always always. like, what does it tagger? Taggers your defacing somebody's property? And I always thought it was a really cool, but like who does that? This is like hater nation, some loser. But if you a ninety nine percent of real human beings Laker fans or otherwise in the city of angels and even outside of the basin.

"djokovic federer" Discussed on The Sports Reporters
"And again he's pitched like david price lately and i really started to worry about him early in the season this game at gangqi stadium on sunday night is is kind of a referendum because he's been so sketchy against the yankees and i've always said that if for any free agent whether it's new york or boston if you can't pitch well against the other team you can't play for those teams so we got to see what he doesn't sunday night oh his his so many this is the one of many referees every game seemed to be a referendum for him and he knows he's learned already that will ultimately he will ultimately be judged by when and if he wins the game in october with a starter which he's never done but you're absolutely right there's going to be tremendous scrutiny on him from the boston fandom side on sunday night one interesting thing i note this year is a more a little bit more comfortable he act he's quoted quite frequently he's talked about the importance of this series rather than giving the cold shoulder though i think he may have given last year to the media so he seemed to be more comfortable in his own skin and as a member of this team this year and that's a good sign for everybody and then he just tell you if you're planning to watch these games are just clear out the three games clear out about twelve hours of your schedule over the week might not be fast mitch they will not be fast there will be seven thousand pitching changes even with some of the stars starters in this game and if see tonight will start about seven yeah i i'm hoping to be home by one thirty two o'clock in the morning oh guys i this one reason why i love alex cora and to that point alex cora said yesterday that if he will buy dinner for the entire boston press corps if all three of the games are played in two and a half hours so i don't think he has much to worry about but it's thought that counts before the podcast goes that long a quick thought mike on tennis you're heading over to wimbledon and it it's going to be historic i mean what's what's nice about wimbledon it's this tradition but i didn't know that that that actually carried over to the players who two of the favorite players are nearly as old as us and that makes it interesting for us but unusual match you know i i was talking to our friend the great mary carillo about this just today and i always say this we have an american women's champion serena has won twenty three majors it's going to be a great drama there to see if she's healthy if she can win her first major sensor child was born so that's a great dummy and there's all the controversy about where she would should be seated she's ranked one hundred and eighty because he was away she's the twenty fifth seed federer who is the defending champ has won this thing eight times will be thirty seven years old in august nothing comparable to him is this has ever happened in the open era the next oldest men's champion was arthur ash show i believe his thirty one when he won in one thousand nine hundred eighty five and i say this all the time if djokovic federer nidal had one of them had been in american we would look at this is the golden age in the history of tennis back it is the golden age in the history of men's tennis mitchum bob we have three players who have won a total of forty nine major singles championship twenty for federer seventeen for.
