"Freddie. Layla Fernandez has advanced to the U. S Open. Final three set win over that on my, I'm not even gonna try. Behaving diamond, please they love. Hmm. Give me one thought on the youngster heading to the U. S open final. Remember to ease my worried my mind for those who don't know that's on just Google, Eric Clapton and Layla. And by the way, you're welcome. We knew youth was going to be served at a certain point. I don't think anybody thought it was going to be somebody not named Coco golf and she is definitely going to get hurt. There's no doubt about it. But later, Fernandez Before this U s open tournament. She was four and six. Playing in majors. She is undefeated. It is major and she just turned 19 years of age. On Monday could have been very easy for her to lose her religion after winning the first set against arena, say Polanco 64, losing the second set in a tiebreaker 76 and every time several Lincoln had a lead. She couldn't hold it. And it was because she was choking because Layla Fernandez was that good and later, Fernandez did not give up. She did not back down and plus, she was playing house money. The cloud. The crowd was clearly on her side at Flushing Metal at Armstrong Stadium, because they know when somebody has that it And they did not want that to go away. Then that was going to be something that people always going to rally around. We saw back in the early nineties. Remember Jimmy Connors had that run? At the US Open. People still talk about that to this day what he did in 1991. They couldn't even tell you when the U. S open that year, but they remember Jimmy Connors dead and have that great run as an old man getting all the way to the U. S open semifinals. Leila Fernandez as that, In fact, at least for this tournament with no Serena No Venus, she was able to take that center stage. And it could be an all teenage final because Democratic Connor won the first set against Maria Zachary 61. She just broker to go to one in the second set. If you combine the ages of those two young ladies Their one year younger than Serena Williams. Who's not in the tournament. Youth has been served.

S open here was there is a close match between Osaka and Doi think it is to Japanese player. But Osaka now I only want it last year and It was the little this little she was. She's 53 this. I don't know what her first name was Michelle doing something she's and boy she just how with that ball around, and then I was so glad Eisner's out from the guy's tampering because he has 51 aces and still loses. I can't stand that tennis player. Ali does his ace a series like Can't return while he just I was glad he's out. I don't know why it bugs me because there's nothing to do. And while he's playing, but be bored, I'm going to be. I'm gonna have secondhand dislike for him. I've had is gonna bug me now. But you know what they had on the tennis channel. While this is playing on ESPN one into less eight or one. I don't know which one It's just fun. It's fun to see it, but they had an old match between Jimmy Connors work. No Jimmy Connor and John McEnroe macaroons, and it was a Wimbledon final. And they think it's like 1981 or two or three somewhere, and I don't know later than that. It was early. Oh, yeah, and they're wearing, you know, write short shorts and headband and then in the rackets. I mean, I'm looking so Jimmy Connor has a mentally I feel like it was the Wilson He 1000 when the very first metal brackets came out because we used to have the old wood frames that you'd put in a wooden frame with bolts to keep it from warping in the winter. It just seems so long ago, and they looked so small and so that the shorts weren't the shots. Nice to look at those short shorts and it was it was funder. Y You know, tennis, eh? So I just started in the last year, too. But I just watch this. Last weekend on Fox. They had a two hour documentary on I think it was the 2007 or 2008 Women tin between the doll and Federer when federal was going for six and a dull beatem in those ties and I mean, it was incredible. It was incredible and the way they would go back and show all the different. You know all they went to the history of tennis and I just started getting into tennis did okay and that documentary We watched it. I think it was Friday. Or some. I am now, Jax for this us everything. Just because of that. There's so much good. There's I wonder how the players feel about having in them. You know a quiet well, it was interesting. So they talked to Novak did tour that Djokovic Yeah, joke. Joke, Vic, but it's D. J and I can't get that through a joke of it. Okay, So they talked him after the match. And he said, you know, I lost focus. You just lose focus their board a little bit while they're in there. There's nothing going on. There's no is part of the game for these champions, and they were saying Naomi Osaka. She's really had to work on keeping herself pumped up because she feeds off the fans, and she's always been afraid. Favorite Our little golf player yesterday. Gaffe gaffes. Yeah, whatever Name is the little young one who was so good Naomi Osaka, known at her Coco Coco. She's out, Always okay. But anyway, there's no energy in the stadium. So it was interesting because at the end of it, they pumped in noise from the fans like they used to hit the tennis balls into the fans were signed, You know people's hats and stuff, So they're raising money. They had to hit this, like sign Ege in the upper stands to put money into a 10. Funders something that it was really, they said. It's different, but they're happy to be doing something Not true. They're good playing and the MBA playoffs are going out right now. People are really excited about watching that, you know, so it's just very different. How it looks right. People are happy to have something else. Well, I have a report for the video music Awards on MTV. Oh, I'm sure a lot of people watching no. Well, let's say an air audience of between 2.5 to 3 Million on the main Viacom channels was on every channel. There was It was annoying. It was And it was down five event for last year. You annoyed because it took up too many channels. Yes, Honestly, I feel great. I went to Nick it. Yeah, because, OK, so I watched a little bit of it just because I was working Monday morning, So I wanted to have something to say about it. But then I was, like, all right, This is really weird. You know that the dog All the performances. Yeah, that was weird. Weird, but cool. So I said, All right, I'm gonna go to Nick it night. Catch them wild classics we'll make a night is Viacom and so everything channels. I went to three channels to watch what I wanted to watch. And it was Same thing.

Well, no, no, you know, it's not an effort was on 12 channels Invite calm is saying that they had six million are compos six million viewers across the 12 channels. But if you weren't watching it on MTV or VH one, I mean anything else that popped up on. You weren't going there for that. No. Do you know what I'm saying? Yes. Like ur example A Yes, because that's a Viacom. So anyway, Black Panther on ABC had 16. I told you people and so you can tell that there was no buzz off the show, either. Because if you checked iTunes and Rolling stone Did the top 10 remained absolutely unchanged over the weekend. Well, here's though it didn't I don't.

"Folks and welcome to the tennis podcast and very special edition of the tennis podcast and back by popular demand brackets by David Law ov- tennis relived. We told you. It would be coming back. Of course, it was coming back. Don't worry. We know that actual live tennis is happening this tennis lived and. Second. One prior to the US Open is not in place of talking about live tennis. And related things it is an addition and a very special and necessary edition as well. This one will be focusing on the life, the career, the legacy of Alpha Gibson, and our next one will be focusing on the very same of thrash respectively the first african-american women and men to win Grand Slam titles in NFL Gibson's case the first African. American. Person To, be, admitted, to play. Professional tennis an extraordinary women in extraordinarily. Important figure in tennis history and one that. Hasn't been sufficiently remembered or given her Jews always over the is so. We're hoping to write that in a very tiny tiny way today certainly been. An extraordinary learning experience for us to to get to know these t plays an the significance in tennis history say thank you David for your enthusiasm. For tennis relived. Point Yeah it's very different what we're doing today and what we're doing with the Arthur Ashe podcast as well. When we were doing the Roland Garros relived Wimbledon the Olympics, they were all about events or matches or moments in time specific moments in time when we came up to realizing that the US Open for stop was going to happen and we really don't have two weeks worth of shows to fill much as I'd love to come up with twenty wonderful matches and memories which no doubt we will get to in the. List of Twelve Pete Sampras much is that he submitted for the short lift. US Open relived and fifteen Jimmy Connors matches. Including all seven from all from. Sorry. All five from nine hundred, ninety one. But When we came to to look at this and we started to try to think well, what what should we do I personally suddenly realize the the gaping chasm mind knowledge in my reading of the Games history and I think particularly Alpha Gibson I feel ashamed not to know what I now know and what we want to do with this show. Is Tell, the stories that we've discovered and to properly tell the history as best as we can. I. Think we all knew that line first black woman to play the US Open and win Grand Slam titles but I'd never properly engaged with that line or really understood what that actually. Meant or considered what she actually had to overcome to become that because tennis was this elitist sport at a racially segregated time in America. So it's an extraordinary thing that tennis was used as AVIK BY A. Gibson and now thrash. To advance the black race and I'd never really. Never really thought about that before how how, what, a, what a strength of character and what a special talent it took to be able to achieve as a black person in in that white world and it's just been. Just been happening really to have read and sort of spent time. In their lives over the last few over the last few days and weeks doing this research and and it felt very necessary and timely as well.

"The dell has just burst in here but these are what they are pet expert but does somebody sent it to me I think that kind of makes sense you have a dog a day I suppose god people are so cognizant and conscientious about their pets their dogs but if the dogs walking along the ground super hot that's that animal suffering daisy will just kind of start to prance a little bit you know like hot hot for two steps if it's too warm then snatcher up when she goes out on the deck on the sidewalk but be be aware of that too thank you Steve Dale for for that we started the show yesterday and the day before talking still about the president's tweets of this past weekend so they had a vote in the house of representatives yesterday and all the Democrats voted to condemn the president's words and only for the Republicans did I am so naive I thought that more Republicans would take the leap and say yeah you should miss said that but they didn't do it it's funny because impressed for statements and on their own tweets in newspaper articles a lot of the Republican congressmen and women are saying that what the president said was at least a poor choice of words but when it came to actually voting to sort of you know categorically state that they all backed off but for there was Congress nearest to us Susan Brooks in Indiana and also in Michigan Fred Upton both voted to condemn the president's words Upton said today's resolution was targeted at the specific words the frankly are not acceptable from a leader in any workplace larger small if we're going to bring stability back to the center of our politics we must speak out against inflammatory rhetoric from anyone America embraces diversity and that must continue to quote president Reagan if we ever close the door to do Americans our leadership in the world would soon be lost Susan Brooks in Indiana said yesterday I issued a statement regarding the president's recent inappropriate remarks because I believe they do not reflect American values I believe our diverse backgrounds as Americans makes are cut make our country greater and stronger these differences should be celebrated by all of us so those are two of the four not too far from here who spoke out against the president and then voted to have sort of back that up but in Illinois all of the Republican congressman and all of the Republican congressman from Illinois are men all of them voted to not condemned the president's words all of the Democrats voted to condemn the president's words you know Steve I was looking at the congressional map and you point this out every now and then to me when it comes up of things one is that Illinois is a red state even though it's the bluest surest devote it is a red state geographically all of the land in Illinois is represented by recover Republican congressman except for the strip of land between the Quad Cities in galena the very north west corner of the Mississippi River and then obviously Chicago and further into the county's than it used to be so you have that that Chicago in the suburbs and then you have northwest part of the state all the rest of the state represented by all of the rest of the state is represented by Republicans yeah I don't know I'm not the one who told you to read so I wouldn't color red state though no but you but here here's what you do tell me this is what I was thinking of when I said that and when you do look at the shape of the congressional districts they are the most yeah czar looking things they make no sense our districts I mean if ever there is a state that looks like I don't know what our congressional representation would be like I think I might quickly is distracted includes Wrigley Field in Carbondale right it is just about what is it's Jim kiss I think goes from Rockford down to Pontiac and just kind of a war angles its way along there if it's not him because it's one of them and in the more I looked out the more is it in this is not such a problem down state because it's just these massive grabs of land because you know everybody in each congressional district has the same number of people so they get massive south of Peoria this just a few of them and then you get into the Chicago area of course are much much smaller and tighter and when you get into the collar counties of Chicago the northern half of the state it's it's not it's it's the weirdest looking things you look at those and goes huh I wonder what's up here I know they rigged it so that they'll get the votes they need that's what it is and that's the way illinois' shaped okay so whatever so all of the Republican none of the Republicans voted to condemn the president's words although they see us and I've been back and forth with some of their PR people and actually has two by producer this week talking to them and they sent me the press releases or point out what was said in a newspaper article and I said okay if they said that why didn't they vote that way and I haven't heard back from them on that congressman lahood of Peoria you're a good man where are you Sir this from the bell view news Democrat that's down state where Jimmy Connors was born by the way bill view I know that's build build build and that's where he was born in Belleville congressman Mike bost for Murfreesboro that's downstate way downstate these words were wrong and I disagree with them it is unfortunate they may serve as a distraction from the important job we have to end this crisis secure our borders and keep the American people safe the Boston downstate he voted though not to condemn the President Johnson kiss from Collinsville so now he's not the guy from Rockford well you could make the argument I would imagine that you know you can disagree with the the comments but not think it it rises to the level of congressional condemnation it's a slap on the wrist anyway you know it's no big deal I think the only reason not to is because you're afraid that then your constituents will say Hey you've got to go with the president no matter what he does as he drives the truck off the cliff we all want to be on it with him couldn't I mean think about this for a second if you were a Republican especially if you're in Collinsville or Peoria or Murphy's borough any just anywhere but the Chicago area if you're a cut a Republican congressman from the state of Illinois you're good you have nothing to worry about Jack I don't know maybe a primary run but all that so are you telling me that you are so afraid the you'll be challenged in a primary that if when the president says this thing which is just to some of you is the most deplorable thing this this president has said you're afraid to just vote to condemn those words you don't lose any money the president still gets to be president there's zero consequences except when they said everybody raise your hand that doesn't like what the president said you did not raise your hand raise your hand what's what's the worst that could happen you're still going to represent your district I don't understand do not understand it John shin kiss from Collinsville said I regularly hear from constituents including during by visits last week with area farmers that president trump's tweets often her rather than help his agenda and while I share the president's frustration with the dangerous open borders amnesty an anti law enforcement policies pushed by far left house Democrats this was not a good tweet so that's his hard is shin kiss will step down on that and again he's a southern Illinois congressman he doesn't represent the Chicago area another one from downstate this would be more central Illinois Taylorville US representative Rodney Davis cautioned against the use of extreme rhetoric and referred to when a gunman from near Belleville shot a Republican shot Republican members of Congress practicing on the softball field in suburban Washington DC remember here was there yeah yeah and so Davis says quote we saw the outcome of over the top political rhetoric in twenty seventeen one Republican members of Congress including myself were shot at on a baseball field I disagree with the rhetoric used by president trump personal attacks do more harm than good and allow the harmful policies being pushed by far left members of the democratic caucus to be ignored so most of them are saying that the reason I mean two of these I would interpret is to say that you know the worst of the president's words is not them on their face value but rather simply that they distract from the work that they're trying to do to fight the evil Democrats was itching case in Davis you just read those were basically the US interesting the same statement yeah they are very similar so I wonder if there was a direction like here's got here's our rotating that's to all published in the Belleville news Democrat again Belleville where Jimmy Connors and my sister were born okay enough about that one twenty five on WGN still more to talk about colluding with just with the Chicago River because they're going to have a Chicago River swim kinda like hike that would drive or bike the driver you get to ride your bike up and down that let's go swimming in the river we'll tell you how when where that's going to.
