Why Gimelstob Must Go
Politics takes over on this weekâ€™s Tennis Podcast as Simon Briggs of The Telegraph joins Catherine Whitaker, David Law and Matt Roberts to discuss Justin Gimelstobâ€™s conviction for assault. What have been the latest developments in the case? Who has spoken out against Gimelstob and why are more people not doing so? How has he been able to become such a prominent figure in tennis? What is likely to happen next? Is it really conceivable that he could keep his position on the ATP board? And if he does, what does that say about tennis? Elsewhere, thereâ€™s chat about Marco Trungelliti being snubbed for blowing the whistle on match-fixing, and the news that the ATP Finals will move from London to Turin in 2021. On the court this week, Dominic Thiem beat Rafael Nadal in Barcelona and went on to win the title. Who is the favourite for the French Open? The Tennis Podcast is produced weekly throughout the year and daily at the Grand Slam tournaments. It is produced in association with The Telegraph.

And how will Roger Federer play into the equation as he returns to the dirt for the first time since a quarterfinals finish in 2015? On the women's side, is Simona Halep the favorite? Wertheim and Stubbs also discuss the increasing age of players in the sport; how much the clay court lead-ups factor into French Open results; and much more.
