But he's taken his own curiosity and that you can you can see a mine. Sparking and feverish appetite for The world and would it has to offer a anyway when she starts talking like that. I end up thinking right. Let's just do it all. Yeah as in life goal. What cricket match with billie jean king. Yes in action. How good that would be. Yes and have catherine sitting alongside To to explain why a draw over five days is so good. Make the cut if the people that it did. Oh goodness i believe me. They didn't she worry.

Leaving are interested in the album sold with. I think probably interested in anything. David dave mentioned the dice. Got a good rate with dez and getting them interested in west brom a bit. Jane just said that you know that's west job in a football team. That are not very good. That i happen to be in love with and i have no other no other option but to love them. They're kind of like a family member. I don't like very much. So yes No her appetite for life and everything is just Just truly infectious Is like flying kites speaking to her sort of goes off in all different directions but it makes you feel like you can fly so we very much intend to do as discussed in the interview show in the future about the original nine. I think some. It's something we would love to think. We've we've covered it to a degree but this the so much more to unpack and storyteller about it and and others as well that we That you covered in the course of that interview and and it's being one of the great thrills of the last twelve months to be able to go back into strin- it's kind of like the relief that we needed sunday. I think In such a difficult time when normal tennis life was not there for us to talk to be able to go back and discover the past and and and in that way. It's really been a blessing to me. Because i feel so much more connected to the sports result of it and i feel like we're only just scan inserted in that regard and this interview has made me realize that. Yeah as did. The long list for australian open relived was doing the stuff that's been left on the cutting off the australian david in the queue in the queue. Oh they must be twenty. Shows that we're not doing. And i'm gutted about all of them however i'm thrilled with the ones that we are doing and they will all starts on monday of next week. We're going to be putting out full shows for you next week. This is before australian open draws made so we didn't four shows all of the maastricht open revived the shedule night change.

The sport played against her followed her commentated on her. And just really try to understand because we weren't around. I mean i. I was seven years old when she went her.

Catchy is somebody will be speaking to four australian open relays. Because i've already done it and it was bloody great. I wondered if that name is going to pop in there. Yes yet that one.

"The christmas decorations. Okay so race. And catherine has to have a new charger for beauty said to her this week. As well because pillaging. The dog decided to ito through the capable of that which was most tiny little teeth. It wasn't plugged in was thorough. Lots i think I think probably the most of all the things that i was most surprised by was was the the tone that she was explaining to a she'd learned tolkien when she was trying to have influence when she was trying to get things done the such a conscious understanding that she can't just go in there and demanded and just bacteria away she got to be very tactical and and think about her delivery at all times in order to to keep people with her in and be able to incrementally change. This wanted to make i. I found that fascinating because You know that must that must kind of rail against what you've got inside when you when you adapt desperate for change and yet you realize you've got handling a certain way or you're not gonna get anywhere. Yeah i think on a personal level. If i had one thing that i i want to to learn from her it would be it would be that it would be the the grace and the wisdom to to walk that tight rape taylor to tailor. Your arguments for the audience for maximum impact is a very pragmatic approach And i'm i'm for more idealistic and naive. I suppose in in my approach to sort of wanting to change things and yeah it. It blows my mind the extinct extent to which she's been able to walk that tight rape over the is and the fact that it hasn't been down and eating away at her you know that recognition of how much of the truth. The world is ready for at any given moment. How much change. People are prepared to accept the judgment of that. She she told that story about the interviewer asking her whether she was a feminist in that split second she had to consider her answer and she judged it she judged it perfectly she just had this awareness of the world was world was ready for but yeah i get that and i can completely acknowledge the you know in terms of in terms of achieving your ends. She is absolutely the best approach. But when i try and do that it eats away at me. You know. I i have to go somewhere and invent whereas for her. It seems not to she. She does not. There's not an ounce of cynicism or bitterness in her tool there's just this knowing linton harare okay or had. You haven't haven't been ready for the whole treat this whole time. But i've always nine and i've always known that we would. We would reach this point eventually. Not that we're at destination or anything but satiny reach a point where someone and look back in marvel at the the progress. That's that's been achieved and yet she still come with right now. can we do. How can we change that. And the fact that. They've named the billie. Jean king cup formerly the fed cup after her and that is not enough for her that just having her name on. That is yeah. That's that's great right. What can we do with that. The idea of a rookie school. What a great idea. I mean when i was at the atp day had and they still have to some degree the university but it makes me realize that the that session. Which which. When i attended was eight ninety eight ninety nine somewhere around Roger federer attended nine thousand. Nine blood supplies like sebastien grosjean on a clean. Where where those sessions. But it was all about your finances handling the media and all of those things. The wasn't the history lesson that she's talking about. Which i just think if you got someone like her and there so many others. I mean we've had we have the pleasure of getting to speak to many different people that have achieved great things in the sport and had experiences for tennis raven. I just think that if you got the right people in the right setting you would have plays just lapping it up quite honestly that. Just be the be listening without a mama rarely and i think the would be great value to that. Of course i mean the day. Any tennis player turned pro. They should be on the phone with beijing. Billie jean king or at least deny played. Some sort of recorded message by billie jean king. Maybe maybe that would take time out of her calendar. Just give them a podcast interview. Listen to come on a has a mental ship on the there. I'm not exactly sure your house that runs whether it's still run so we'll have to find that out but i'm quite sure that is the way to go. Meanwhile betty jane the dog theme causing utter chaos in the whitaker household what this too many cables involved in podcasting. That is what. I've learned the post a few weeks. Yes she's trying to chew them and so to do some kind of Huddling with them as well. It's oshii settled down on my feet now so we can cook quick rick listen. Let's be poignant and important and sensible. Yes sorry you're going to say yeah. I was just going to say that point about being aware of not losing her audience. That is that is something that we talked about with rash how he got some criticism for not being outspoken. Enough at the start of his career. And i'm i'm currently working my way through barrack obama's book and that's something. He talks about when he ascended to the presidency of no eighteen people. Just just getting that. Just right and to think that. Billie jean king's had been doing that for fifty years is totally remarkable By the way. I saw the martin over select versus jimmy connors match to which she refers. I saw that live in nineteen ninety-two Very much in the middle of the las lawyers and it was able to get up in the middle of the night. When are supposed to be asleep. Ready to go to school the next day or college. Whatever it was didn't do that that live. And i i found that fascinating.

And then if we get the three the fourth is gonna fold in everybody puts wimbledon fourth. They're not fourth. Wimbledon was third deciding. There we're gonna do it in the fridge folded but because the french came before wimbledon. Everybody thinks the french. Before wimbledon they did not wimbledon and the french fault.

You guys on you. it's been we've always loved it so we've been huge thing but this post year eleven months. Whatever it's been a lifeline. It's been everything ready to this policy. Like there was a subject we missed you know about by collins at all. Oh yes yeah. An incredibly warm and welcoming david when he was first you know is the best rookie rookie in the media. When we were doing tennessee lived last year and watching matches so much of it had his commentary on and it was such a joy. Such joy never got to meet him. Did you know you got to see photos with flowers bass. Oh yeah what. A character was The essex county club. I split says with darlene hard. Were walking out the court for a break.

How many pounds. A week We got some expense. Money from the uso usda. I think women give money to the organizations and they give you your expense money.

She was a key and she kept saying with win before we went over there and i go. I don't look at the draw one ball times. She said no. You gotta come and look at the draw and he said no it all over the draw get anyway we won but by taking out to dinner afterwards so sweet of him because that tito our friendship forever.

"About. The you mentioned the billie. Jean king cup. But i had the chance to speak to you about it. Yeah what does it mean t to have that copy that you know you played the in the first edition of it. You know all its history. What does it mean to you. I know it's not new to you having things named after you. But what does it mean to you that that is now named off now. I never get used to now. I never used to knock. I mean i used to try get hazel whitens name on it back over fifteen twenty years ago. I tried very hard actually said no. Then they thought. I think they thought about turning doing a person's name for a while there. The went from federation cup defect cup. I'm not really sure no shock actually still i. I kind of pinch myself a pinch myself with anything. It's got my name on. Its way to have a legacy. Which i appreciate but with thank eyeso- cops when i'm talking to people i mean i it's it's embarrassing Anyway i think this is amazing opportunity because the it has this advantage all now. I don't know if you know about the strategic plan to have equality for women in dab equality for us for women and that's a huge part of why it's such an honor to because hopefully i can help get you know go towards that but i think the juniors we have an amazing opportunity because global. It's a world cup. It's something we can really think develop over time to help make the world a better place with especially the young people i mean. I'm racking my brain. Do you have any ideas. Actually you david or matt. If you have any ideas how we can help. I don't just make it better for the young people and then also make really exciting for the people are going to play on a team. I played in the first federation cup in nineteen. Sixty three at the queen's club and i love teams. I come from team if you if you you're young so you haven't had to hear me all these years. All i talk about team to me. The original nine were a team okay. We weren't just nine individuals. We were keen of nine people. So i'm all about team. Because i grew up in all team. Sports so tennis is kind of different because it was individual But i think we shouldn't be keep calling individuals sporting. That's another mistake. Why don't we promote it as we are the one sport that has teamed end individual. I don't know why we can't get rapper. Hands around that idea. why not. that's something every Doesn't have we have both. We're mazing so. I know the ryder cup for golf. But still we. Could we have more team events than they do. Okay in it's a great team sport or great individuals for we had every we have so much going for us so when they named fed cup me. It's a huge responsibility. I always feel responsibilities. What i feel with any of these whether it be the national tennis centre worthy the library long beach or or the park named billie jean king you know these things they matter and they people go there every day and i feel responsible to set an example and more importantly. What can we do now for legacy to help people now in later. How can we be a beacon of hope. How can we. How can we do this so bj. Cup fed cup is now an opportunity that i'm trying to wrap my arms around that. How can we truly truly Make a difference. And i must say everybody. They're excited Try to make it bigger better. I want us to have more teams than football. Women's football has more than we do Gets me kind. Gets my competitive side up. I think we have what hundred i used to know this. One hundred and twenty two teams this year. I'll everything has been. We have a lot. But i think the soccer had sorry. Football had the hundred and forty four so we have to get it going. We have to be as big. We have as many countries as any sport in the world. We have to have this many countries in our world cup. Okay that's how i feel. I think it. I think we are very fortunate that we were not in the olympics. I think the only reason we have professional tennis or maybe one of the only reasons because we did not have that distraction at the time. I love the olympics. i grew up. I love the athletics track and field. I love that this huge. They are swimming. The amateur sports were big. They're amateurs were big and we. We were in the olympics of nineteen hundred. I think tennis was either the first or second sport in the olympics. In nineteen hundred. I'm not sure if i've got the year right. I think it's nineteen hundred. But i think in twenty six. We left our sport and then because we were not olympics. We actually had time to think about how to be a pro sport. And i remember people's oh after we got the pro going olympics. I can't believe we're not olympics. Said we will be in their. Why how. I said you'll save because we're because we're professional we have. We have a players and will make money for the olympics. Believe me they will want us so at eighty four. We're an exhibition sport in los angeles. I was the judge went watched. The finals was Steffi graf against goal it's goals from yugoslavia They only did it. Twenty one and under. I saw groff. Gosh she's gonna be in all Just amazing. I saw her in in eighty eight. You won the golden slam everything right and.
Fed Cup to be renamed Billie Jean King Cup
"The Fed Cup has been renamed the Billie Jean King Cup and there's those big plan fair announcements about this week and it's a lovely lovely thing I think it feels so so right there is I think one caveat David that you pointed out on twitter which. Which I very much agree with. How How how much does it really? Well first of all, I agree with you I think I'm ready that it's been renamed. That's The. Caveat was the if we are renaming the Fed, cut the Billie Jean King Cup. It feels even further away that we're GONNA end up having the the great mixed team competition or Fit Slam slammers I'd love it to be. A combination of the Fed Cup or the Billie Jean King Cup in Davis. Cup, that I think the sports so. Hugely needs that feels further away. But maybe maybe that's maybe that's not the case. Maybe the fact that her name is on it and she is may be involved more. We'll bring that closer together because she so much wants that is well, she's. The biggest campaign for. Men and women working together and and being on the same page and being on the same bill for goodness sake. and. Hopefully. That will come in the future I mean. There are those events just don't exist this year. So this is the news news, the renaming, and and that alone really really about just one article Chris Clare in the New York Times right timing done an interview it but a Jianqing, I really enjoy a recommended he coach Bud Collins. Once. Saying that the Fed Cup is a splendid idea with a lame name and he quotes spitting Jean King saying. When a woman does something always think we do it for women when a guy does something, they never say they did it for the guys and so one of the changes I hope I can talk about more and more is that I would like people think that we. Are Doing it for the sport not for Women's Sports and I I thought. Absolutely right. It's It's about time attitudes changed. Yeah I thought that was. A perfect summation of both what Billie? Jean King is about an also how how this could be a a way forward for kind of mixed event and and a combination of men's and women's. Competition together but I mean personally that that that's not been my vision for mixed team event I've I've not thought that it should replace. Davis carpet. Now, village Inking Cup I genuinely think that it could go along alongside them. Both I don't think you need to. Get rid of them and combine it into one I. Think you could have a mixed team event like we had with the Hoffman Cup but make bigger thing out of that, and now we've got that point in the calendar with the ATP Cup and that I think that's the point. Many Times. Cup. Turn. So. Many cups when you did all the cups said back to back, it's Oh it's cup overload kind feels to be redundant to be talking about the of the moment you. Know. What the tent tennis Kinda is anymore but I mean personally I'm just saying I think there's room the space. It would be a great thing for a mix team competition to exist alongside. The Davis Cup in now Billie Jean King Cup that we already have our cup runneth over. A. Carrillo.

We think it's just swell, so thank you talk so there's been a lot of news this week. Tennis's not exactly back in full swing, but it is apparently coming soon. The plans are in place for the US Open Roland Garros and for the WPA of pretty full fall. Schedule this to happen in one day. Basically. You wake up before i. do so when I got up. We'll tell you when that was or when that typically is. Knows a lot for me to catch up on. It took a while took like full day very like I had a a grasp of what was going on, and what it felt like to me, was one domino started, and then everybody was like damn. Yes, so the USDA teased a little bit earlier in the week that they were primed to go ahead than a big announcement was coming pending government approval we had heard rumors about the zoom calls this huge. ATP Zoom Com that no Ruben was talking about on the behind the rocket podcast, criticizing Novak Djokovic for allegedly not being there, so we knew there were is nothing alleged about to. He was not okay. The whole point university I don't WanNa get spread cheated. You know everybody's got to be charted once in a while. The so there were there were murmurs throughout the week, but. Wednesday at ten am. The US Open holds a press conference in the empty and cavernous. Arthur ash stadium. Stacey Allaster is there? They have a few other folks on court physician. Mc I forgot who that was. Sorry. My reporting skills are just not up to snuff over the the tennis break, but it was very much a public relations event. There were a lot of sport reporters on zoom. So after the the press conference happened, or after the main presentation happened, there were individual questions by. Reporters who they showed on zoom, and when we found out that there wouldn't be media physically on site. We got the sense that this, too was a trial run for what the media access will be at the actual tournament where presumably players will be interviewed via zoom. Right, so the big announcement as I'm sure you've already heard that the US Open will go ahead. As planned in the the same part of the calendar in New, York City at Billie Jean, King National Tennis Centre with no spectators, and with a lot of health provision in place, but listen I'm still surprised that they're going full steam ahead. I'm still extremely skeptical and especially what we're seeing now in. Clemson University for example. was. At twenty three members of the football team tested positive for COVID. The exploding numbers and Florida Arizona California baseball has affected right now. Golf is affected right now pretty much every sport that you've seen. Attempts to restart has been affected in one way or another in tennis. Not going to be immune to that and we'll get to why. We think that that's the case based on what's been going on overseas. Break so I? Guess I'm getting ahead of myself. Let's just go through the actual news first, and then we can comment on it as part of this abbreviated summer schedule, or there will be the Washington D. C.. C. Tournament, the city open held in DC, starting August fourteenth for the men I. Don't think we have heard about the possibility of a winds tournament yet, but I believe it's being discussed because it's typically joint event, right, it's not currently in the WTO calendar, but apparently that is still open, then the western and southern open. That is normally in Cincinnati will be held in New York City the week before the US Open. And then the US Open and because Cincinnati is moving to new. York. That means that there will be no qualifying. For the US Open because typically the week leading into the Grand Slam in New, York, city. It's this. It's this week long. Qualifying Extravaganza pretty much and so with Cincinnati playing that there's no room for qualifying

Jean had long been advocating equal prize money for men and women in tennis. She was one of nine women who had even started their own circuit. After winning the US, open in nineteen, seventy-two Billie Jean said she would boycott the following year. If the women's prize money was not equal to the men's in nineteen, seventy-three, the US Open became the first major tournament to give equal compensation to the men's and women's champions. By. Nineteen seventy-three Billie Jean had been ranked the number one women's tennis player in the world five of the previous seven years. Another famous tennis player Bobby. Riggs had long been boasting that women were inferior athletes. In the nineteen forties rigs had been ranked number one in the world three times. He argued that he could still beat any of the top women players, even at the age of fifty five, and in May of nineteen, seventy-three easily defeated Margaret Course in September of that same year. Billie Jean stepped up bobby. Riggs challenged, and the legendary battle of the sexes match, but the one hundred thousand dollar prize state. That's over half a million dollars in today's money. An estimated ninety million viewers tuned in to see the showdown. After theatrical introduction in which the players exchanged tongue-in-cheek gifts, the match started initially Billie Jean struggled against rigs fell behind at the start of the first set. But she pulled ahead and dominated for the rest of the match. Billie Jean later said she pulled ahead when she realized she just had to win for women everywhere.

Pam Shriver - US Open finalist aged 16, winning Olympic Gold, and partnering Martina Navratilova
"Thank you so much for doing. This is an absolute treat to have you come and yeah in very strange circumstances obviously for everybody in the world not just the tennis world. You're joining us from California. I believe how how things over there. How has lockdown? How you coping the situation and the lack of tennis in La Lives. Well I would say over all I'm really proud of my three teenagers at a time. When teenagers want to distance themselves from their parents. They've accepted what has to be done. I feel like California in the mayor of Los Angeles I live. We live in Los Angeles. So we've had some leadership both at the state level and and at the city level that has been really strong very consistent and I think that's one of the reasons why Are Part of the United States is actually done much better than expected in pleased that the generation who the order to stay at home. It's really counterintuitive to what they want but There's been a lot of acceptance in I can tell you as a homeowner sixteen years ago bought up property with a private tennis court. Tennis court is one of the reasons why a couple of us in the family have kept better sanity. How much you missing professional tennis right now? Well you know I missed Indian. Wells would have been an easy drive. I missed that one. The most I will tell you because of the business of my home life regardless of a pandemic or even if I'm just driving my three kids around and The the level of detail that I would follow the tour from week to week is not as detailed as it would be like when I worked for ESPN at Melbourne and maybe look the weeks leading up to Melbourne. I knew what was going on in the lead up tournament so for me personally. I haven't missed it that much but we haven't yet gone past one of the tournaments. I think would impact us the most which would be say for for me. Roland. Garros Wimbledon. I mean I thought the tennis will did a great job of I mean it was tough call for Indian Wells. I remember that Sunday night when it was called It took everybody by little bit by surprise but it just started the domino effect of what this virus in the effects on the world sports It just started a series of closures around the world yet studying to look like a very pristine cooled by by that tournament. Looking at your Your social media. You look like you've taken the opportunity during lockdown to have the most neatly and cleanly arranged trophy show in all of Iraq in Pam. Yeah one of my first during lockdown one of the first things I was thinking. Well little things can I post What content would be interesting and I thought all right well. My mantle pretentious fans would be interesting to see The the major championship doubles trophies. Most support try one with Martina. There was a US Open with a net. Pashas vary of there was some Fed Cup stuff. There was recognition of our Grand Slam doubles year as well as the year. I got the finals of US. Open in singles at Sixteen. So I thought it was kind of a fun tour and I guess most of the stuff I posted that one had the most views in. I think it just shows you how much people want to see one way or another or or touch any way major tennis. He absolutely in all of these things that that you just mentioned there. I I really want to talk about. I in first and foremost your your partnership with Martina Navratilova. Seventy four doubles titles together including Twenty Grand Slams. You're you're still the most successful women's doubles partnership of all time. What what made you such a great partnership the too well. I think there are a lot of things I think when you look at how we played our singles The style of play with serve volley back in the eighties. That was kind of. That's how you play doubles back then too so it was really Our our singles games translated into being great doubles players. Naturally the lefty righty combination. If you look in tennis history whether it's nukem Roach whether it's the Brian twins whether it's McEnroe Fleming There's a lot of great Lefty righty doubles teams. I just think you know the choice of who serves the sun's tougher righty. There's just a lot of things that are beneficial to having a lefty righty Our personalities you don't have a partnership that long if your personalities don't gel well We enjoyed each other Our senses of humor clicked in. There are a lot of those matches through the years where we would play after. Martina was the featured match at night So we played and we had to wait late night tennis So if you didn't enjoy each other and our coaches got along. Well obviously we had teams. That were much smaller back then. My team was generally just one Martino. It's one of the first that brought in teams of more than one But our team's got along well and so it just led to who knew that January eighty-one with lead to what it ended up leading to it was I think ultimately nineteen eighty that Martina. Kool G to US could be your your partner partner. What do you remember about that? Phone call was at Deer Creek Country Club in Deerfield Beach Florida having a late practice and I'm a member. Lee Jackson longtime referee for the tour and She came out and You know years and years before anyone has self owner yet said Martinez on the phone and I mean whoever is practicing with the it was the practice was abandoned Iran in got it got on the phone. And W T tour office and You know she asked me. She doesn't mix her words. She didn't learn a lot of pleasantries. Just asked me if I had that commitment to doubles partner for the next year and I said no I did not. I had just the. Us Open just a month prior. I'd gotten into the finals with Betty Stove in Betty Stove his last tournament. And we lost Billie Jean King and Martinez. I think it was six six or five and five and I think that was probably the last indicator. Martina needed that. She she she was looking for. A younger partner was starting. Her career could play for a period of time and so it was obvious it. I didn't even have to break commitment. Thank God because if I'd had a commitment to somebody I mean that would have been a tough a tough one to pass on playing doubles with Martina. So I'm glad it worked out that I didn't have a commitment to a partner confessed to a tip off from for Mary Carillo but she has suggested that that I ask you about asking Martina to sign a cocktail Napkin to seal to seal team together forever. Yeah well we had already been together a long time because we we. We went through a stage at think Springtime of eighty four. We lost in the tournament of Champions in Orlando. We didn't lose again for over two years so I think it was. One hundred nine straight matches When we hit a one hundred wins and it was in Eastbourne so the tournament director George. Tendon threw a party for us that night. And we were celebrating To to the history of tennis no one can remember doubles team ever hitting one hundred wins in a row so A I decided to take that moment. I wrote a contract on a on a peeper. Napping it says I'M MARTINA NAVRATILOVA. Promise always to play doubles with Pam. Shriver and I had a witness line. The George Hendon was signed in as I stood up to give the toast and give the contract Martinez in my head ended up in a lamp shade so it was kind of like it was funny and it was. I have that I have. I still have that cocktail napkins somewhere. But it's back in Baltimore. My hometown Collecting dust but will not be thrown out. One hundred nine matches is is truly extraordinary April nine hundred ninety three to July one thousand nine hundred five did you did you feel. Invincible is a team. Well a lot of those matches we went into the matches knowing we were going to win them. But there was a handful that were incredibly dicey and I remember one in particular that was Right in the middle while it was about win number seventy five and it was in Madison Square Garden against our longtime rival. They were generally the number two team behind us. For many of those years Souckova Elena Sakaba Claudia. Coda kill and we came down to a tiebreak in the final set and I remember it was five. All it was late in the tie-break whenever I was returning and Martina just said return it low and I'm going to go and I'm like yes ma'am you know like you WanNa. That was great. It was like a plan now. Of course then you still have to execute but I remember as soon as I hit the return like that's going to be a low. It was a good return. Sheet timed or poach perfectly. Put It away and then we won the next point on serve so that was the hairiest moments that was when we came within two points of losing. But other than that. I don't remember match where we were like. Matchpoints down we. We won a lot of those matches during that streak in

Federer: WTA/ATP Should Merge - our reaction; John Millman nearly retired, then beat Federer - our interview
"Hello everybody another tennis. Podcast for you won't we weren't planning to bring you a couple of days ago but you know we just can't get enough of this and the so much going on and yes okay. There's no tennis but the stuff to talk about and we've got an interview with Joe Millman for you so we'll have that later but Catherine is here. Catherine David Selamat had David and the reason. We're convening altogether now. Not just having the Joe Millman interview which had been the original plan until about four hours ago is about twelve twenty eight pm today. Russia Federa- tweeted and what he tweeted was just wondering am I. The only one thinking that now is the time for men and women's tennis to be united and come together as one at which point Catherine and I wanted whether this was a teaser to a bit of content that might be coming out between the two tours because they've been producing causes loss of that and then I thought it can't be that cooked because I mean we've had instagram and lives law but moments later he said I'm picturing a merger between the WTO and the ATP I'm not talking about merging competition underscores but merging the two governing bodies the. Wta that oversee the men's and women's professional tours it's too confusing for the fans when there are different ranking systems different logos different websites. Different tournament categories. It probably should have happened a long time ago. But maybe now is really the time these tough times in every sport and we can come out of this to weaken bodies or one stronger body. Now when you hear that when you read that out loud that is pretty strong stuff catherine and and have to. I mean okay. We've been moving towards that in terms of little bits of Combined content under brand of tennis united. And we've had a heard an interview that has been put our way by the of their new seat in the new chairman and drag at NC Talkin about more and more collaboration. But for Roger Federer to come out apparently unsolicited and just say it's time to merge the tolls that was bombshell stuff ready wasn't it behold this novel an exciting idea. Yeah it was pretty bombshell stuff. I mean obviously. It's a good idea. Obviously Reid you. The way you read out these tweets. That sounds entirely sensible great. Let's do it. I'm trying not to be Aussie and SNIFFY ABOUT CERTAIN ELEMENTS OF THE STORY. And the way it's developing and being told that is happening on twitter. I'm trying to be a bit. Socially distanced from tennis twitter. I say that with heavy equities because it makes me shudder a little bit But it can be a bit of a toxic place and I'm trying to not be embroiled in it but this whole story has dropped exclusively on tennis twitter sort of had to be reeled back in the sort of arms race to claim claimed territory and claim claim that. This was their ideal. This is the first time anyone had this idea. The facts that you know of one suddenly sitting up and taking native destroy quality when a man shouts about it. All of those things I there is a part of me that wants to be about the the. Oc posted me often wins. But I'M GONNA try and be utilitarian about it and think. Look if if this is how the right thing ends up happening then then fine you know and I'm I'm going to echo do some shadowing echoing into something that you're going to say in relation to a different issue Later in the POD. He's talking about the distribution of wealth and prize money among top level players which is now suddenly a a a burning topic or among plays in general and he says look. I can't believe it's taken a pandemic for for this to be taken seriously and for the real powers that be to consider addressing it. Will I feel exactly that way about the the unification of The governing bodies but hey it took countless examples. They were able to for the. Nhs happened say if the ends justify the means then great. I'm going to suppress for once my RC side. I slightly wants to be able to read that. Billie. Jean King's response on twitter to Roger Federer in the in the sort of tone of voice that you began that that line yourself because what she actually says is I agree and have been saying. So since the early nineteen seventies she. I reckon she didn't say it like that. I kind of wish you had. And then she goes on say one voice women and men together has long been my vision for tennis the WTI on its own was always planned. Be I'm glad we're on the same page. Let's make it happen Hashtag. One voice is what Billie Jean King replied with Samana. Halla Patrick Evita Gubbay. Meru all tweeted support for what Roger Federer had to say and then I found the Dow tweeted. Hey Roger Federa- as you know per hour discussions. I completely agree that it would be great to get out of this world crisis with the Union of men's and women's tennis in only one organization which yeah suddenly makes all of this same quite premeditated between the two of them will maybe more than two of them. We haven't had anything I should say on this subject from Novak. Chuck rich the president of the council at this point. But it doesn't feel like this is just some using that Roger. Federer has just done while he's bored in lockdown as such A. It sounds as though it's been given quite a bit of thought he's had this chat so we've been reminded of this press conference. The rough on the Dow was involved in in two thousand nine hundred Australian Open when he responded to questions about whether he thought that should be a combined organization between the deputy. Atp with just telling us a misunderstanding. So he doesn't didn't understand really why that would be a good idea why we should talk about that. Why why that should be on the agenda And so this is a very very different tone now. Obviously we weren't in the middle of a global pandemic at that point. The world looked very different. It may it may well be that people who had previously never given a second thought to a combined organization of Sydney. Actually th. That's the way out of this. That's a good idea and got to be ready for that. But it's it's pretty stark. Isn't it the difference in town? Yeah I mean elements of needles. Tweet genuinely made me laugh out loud. First of all any suggestion that Is Great is his. English is Spanish as a first language adult composed. Hey at Roger Federer as per discussions. I mean absolutely no way. Is That tweet composed by Rafael Nadal? Himself as per I've ever seen his tweets to Anna Ravenna. Vish venevision join twitter. He said I look forward to our discussions on this means of communication when it was back in the early days of twitter. It was really sort of formal. And it's like a tweet anyway. It kind of reminded me of that one. Yeah so I mean yeah I mean that's not anything. Groundbreaking is that. He didn't necessarily compose himself. And if I was tweeting in a second language I would probably ask for some assistance as well. We've got to eat so I'm not having a pulp about that. But it the the sort of the attempt to say this. This was my idea too. I this came from a discussion that we both had. I was in on this too. That made me laugh because yeah I mean he. He kind of gets a slightly on it from me included because I think I kind of write him off of somebody. That's just not not hugely engaged with the with the wider. She's in Tennessee. And he kind of mice to the time brushes off interrogation about them as sort of. Oh you'll have to ask other people that are that are better informed and have have moose stake in it than than me. I'm not the best person to speak to you. That that clip. That's going around on twitter from the loss. Jesus straighten open is a good example of that. But the fact is he. He hasn't been supportive of equality in In Women's Tennessee's very much market forces based approach T. V. Prize money in the tools etc. So yeah this is. It's a bombshell.
