"This could Serena and it doesn't work without a crowd the scenario, but she ever ever able to be doing something along the lines of ninety one, Jimmy. Connors could three and a half or be like that kind of like sentimental this year old fighter still got a few punches left like row people thing is that in her personality to ever do what like more recently Lleyton Hewitt did that but Layton was way past expiration date and a lot of ways but like is Serena extremists such an Alpha for her career. Do you think she ever really could come to enjoy like the scrappy old-timer? Roll which I don't think you have is a ranking why she's still top ten and everything she's not there yet. But like I don't know I was thinking about this. Is that. Ever really wear I. Could wear it. You know I mean Venus does I think right? I. Think that Serena though unfortunately to like be issued that hat one must like hold that hat like you know what I mean like she would have to you're talking about Venus when you're talking about Jimmy Connors when you talk about Layton. Those players who have had that you're talking about players who wear the when the success came. It came so surprisingly and that becomes the Cinderella story I mean if you consistently over the last couple years come within one match. Of you're not an underdog, I mean people right I mean she still coming into the tournament maybe people don't think that she's the the single favorite like people were taking the field over Serie I think was mostly what everybody was kind of taking at the start of the event but. Over Serena even yeah no but I mean You know we still kind of yeah but. If you're in fear on the shortlist favorites then no, you're not a sentimental favorite I don't think and she's the high seed left in that she's technology left in the tournament number three number one plus Cabela's out. So just her I started no no, she's the highest seed less than tournaments using cannon out. She's the highest in the tournament Kenan Segue went out to at least have mertens. Who has been I feel like Lisa is like so under the radar based on her personality, just being like super chill low country. Gal You know nothing nothing too flashy here. I I i. watched the metric mcnally a good comeback. We now with issues that I wanted an straight, very kind of routine against cannon she's kind of the best player you're not talking about a lot of ways they've like for most people can actually win the tournament for sure and then the whole to shut up then she's just super business. Professional dislike such an adult out there in a lot of ways and you know and she's going up against as Aranka in a match that I think can be pretty fifty fifty because I feel like one of those things that are watching the tour courtney like and people can hopefully Kuzma ranking but at least mertens as a lot of winning like she's won titles that were big enough titles like. Made him as Australia like she's dumping while you weren't looking a yeah. Yeah. She she's the next tier. SELENA and I don't mean that as a compliment like she is the worst. Yeah exactly like you know from eleven to twenty, twenty five like she is that player and always a danger. You don't WanNa player tough out all around game like perfectly balanced and she's coming back to this restart I mean she's played non stop the last three or four weeks she picked up she lost in the First Round Palermo Channel Prog loses to on clay loses to Halla does the quick flip from clay to the fast courts in new? York for Cincinnati and makes a semi finals loses in three sets to Sokha. Those are two losses in the last three weeks is to two top ten players. That's what it's taken to to get a Leeza mertens out and today tonight against Kenan she hits seven unforced errors over two sets. Twenty winners she was serving credibly well returning incredibly well, I mean she's very, very confident right now and she and. Just as Eliza wanted, I mean she's she's under the radar. She doesn't have to deal with all of the accoutrements trauma that comes with being a a a top player into the late rounds of a tournament. So you know she's able to keep very even keel and I it sounds like having spoken to her coach rubber says since I think I'm pronouncing that right I call him in my head Robbie but I know it's not Robbie it's robot Raba at any but but he was saying that during. Rub that during the off season or the shutdown they did a lot of work on her game and really improve just kind of how offensively finding an aggressive game style elise him. Comfortable with because. She's not she's more of a defensive minded player if left to her own devices. She's really shown that since she's come out, she's played more aggressively the winner counselor pretty high for her. She's not just like you know standing in the back of the court. So she is one to watch and people forget she only one that took a set off bb bb and rescue last year she was the closest person to beat her in the quarterfinals of of the US Open last year. So. You know has made a slam before this is new territory for Liza, and I think that her game and because game I think it's a total toss up I think that they match up really well. Theory that it's so below your paygrade, my throw at you anyway how I feel like people don't process at least Martin's as a player slash person. Entity on tour as well as they should because her name is close birds they kind of blur those two together and they're like Oh. Yeah. That that girl from you know girl Benelux girl who like who seems nice in a little bit shy and like hits the ball pretty hard and is good and Mike. Get some good results me that one slam semi you know get her yeah, we like her fine. Like I, feel like they blurred together right and so now Kiki is not here at Lisa as a chance to serve established her own self as her own to really put the M in Mertens and not just be the other earns because I think that like I think Brad Gilbraltar like cartridge. Mertens. Yeah. Blends them together, which I'm not saying it's like offensive or anything 'cause God knows Brad has worst names but. I think there's a chance for her to to make a name for herself here era she could lose his rank who has been solid and books sharp and is has that swagger back for shore? It nevertheless don't believe that's what she will tell you. I. Don't believe it. I saw her lose to Sigmund the Australian Open it was gone this run for her was was good I mean one and three, our savvy lenka beatings fiance who played well beating Muka who played well. Got Hurt clearly physically alien that match Muka, but FICA looks ready to be very much in the midst of this term as she can win this if she's going to get in fights and we haven't seen, she has the edge in the belief that was missing before the game didn't drift that far. But the the mental edge side was so key to her was not there and now she has back and I think she can beat anybody remaining in the bottom half and. Potentially, actually Asaka to. Why not? No I think. So I mean, I keep thinking gosh are we going to get the CINCY final? We didn't get. To. You know. So that's possibly I would love to see this. Serena played this Vico I mean, obviously, we remember what happened. They played each other in India Wells and Vico was playing crap around that time but not match was so good and she elevated and she played Serena. So so great that night best to set match of last year would have been that match. So I would love to see them walk horns again here and yeah I mean because been Viga, and vintage in a Lotta ways. More mature I think and taking it all. You know with a level of gratitude and humility that I think is very true that maybe the old Viga would have been a little bit more maybe you've gotten the brunt end of it more than I have been but you know a little bit more I don't know brass knuckle e about things and you know a little bit more spiky but my experience with her and then just kind of observing her and and how she's dealing with everything. The last couple of weeks has been really nice. I mean she's been really full of positivity and. Yeah I've been really I've been really pleasantly surprised that as vk has gotten her swagger back it hasn't been the vico with the swagger of a decade ago, which was a different Beka motion swagger. So and so could be I mean want to call that I think you might obviously want exchange her about what was even about is Oh is about the stoppage she got seventy asking about in Cincinnati even that was like you know relatively one moment thing like otherwise with me she's been fine everybody else she's been fine..
The Big Debate
"Hello Ladies and Gentlemen Welcome to the passing shot tennis caused by fans. My name's Joke Kelly. I'm Kim McKenzie and today on the big debate we're discussing the greatest players to never have won a singles Grand Slam title. Take your seats. Thank you everybody hype you while Hyppia Safe On. What would it be today? The very star of the French Open Garros Second Grand Slam off the season. Obviously we have no live at is to catch up on what main came have decided to do in. This episode is commemorated. The occasion by looking back at some of the best players to have never won a grand slam singles title. And it's nothing is fair to say it's quite Alexi List that we've we've captured and are few surprising. Names bad did about is the yeah. We've had a lot of suggestions for our listeners and followers say thank you very much for sharing your thoughts and we have had some niche suggestion straight in as well. I'm actually trying to think plays on these lists. Yeah A lot. More names came up that I was actually wanting to and I mean really one of the questions is where do you draw the line? How do you quantify like how many slam final how many titles players had to have one career ranking? They had to achieve to cut be considered good enough To have been capable of winning slam. Is it how close they came and in a final. Is it just what they did in terms of the rest of their career that you could kind of define it? Let's say we'll be looking into this more detail but yeah it's it's quite an impressive list of talent on this list and makes you realize actually how perhaps unjust sport can be when some of our favorite players never quite managed to go all the way exactly and as he said I could this list dominate at Alex. Verify think if that career they will at some point be able to kind of break that that grandson duck. We're going to start actually with a really popular answer. The calls one of one of the first thing that came into my head. It was one of the first that came into of our listeners. Had as well and that player is David Nalbandian. Who the me as one of those payers who do not doubt that he had the technical ability to win a Grand Slam. It was more. I think the injuries him. I think this is fiscal outlook or school. He was quite stocky and made. Now bandying was one of those players. Where yes he? He could be anyone on his day. He was let down by injuries. And the fact the his maneuverability around the court wasn't wasn't the greatest. Yeah I would agree. I think now found him probably gave into the list of being too injury. Prone to to capture title assertively. He was around before the dominance of of the big three m federal was kind of coming to the scene of course but Sam either he was before when the era of Jovic in middle kind of say dominating everything when you look back at what he actually achieved. It's very impressive. Though he was the the only Argentinian in history to reach semifinals Al Slams and even just reached semi-finals and more at all is is a feat in itself and oversee most famous he reached the Wimbledon final thousand. T- leasings Lleyton Hewitt which you okay. This was his best opportunity to witness lamb. However I think in this final you look at the score line and it was so comprehensive. He think if he wasn't capable of kind of doing more on the day at such a kind of big opportunity. I know this question marks around kind of whether he really sees the moment because slates near be like six one six three six two very straightforward line and this was the tournament. Schley going back to this two thousand Buddha. The top seventeen seeds were knocked out before the fourth round. It was only Asian. You and Tim Henman. It will get onto later. That actually came through so you think ooh found in. I don't know I guess maybe even getting to the final was a bit of a stroke of luck giving given that he was Didn't he wasn't having to play top top names to get that far. Sipa houses move reflection of that but yes that very consistent across the Sam's reaching the semi of old of them and the fact that he he was able to be the big three as well. I mean we talked about it in a in a recent Poe cost about the fact that he. He's the only player to beat in the Big Three in one tournament. In in Madrid. I think he'd be Federa Djokovic and the Dow so he was able to kind of know only just do it on one occasion. He was able to come string great consistency across. You know what you would need at a grand slam across. Two weeks is just yeah. You almost fell the loss hurdle as he said. He got to the semi finals of L. Better every Grand Slam and I think it's just a bit of a shame that he got so far but doesn't really have a lot to show for it in terms of in terms of actual titles and that two thousand eighteen. Would you look at the George? Dd that kind of that was potentially could have been his. May I know kind of you know? He's up against the world number one. The Best Player Lleyton Hewitt. But certainly you know how to kind of solve easiest drawer to get to the final to go out. So comprehensively was almost shabelle on his part.

Daniil Medvedev claims first Masters title in Cincinatti
"The world's best men's tennis player at least at this moment is deal medvedev going into last week. The twenty-three-year-old russian had made two consecutive tournament finals here in washington d._c. And then in montreal then this past week in cincinnati he we used huge first and second serves and really solid for hands back ends to beat world number-one electric in the semi finals and divvied viewed goffin in the final to win the biggest title of his career and move up to a career-high number five in the world behind only jovic rafael nidal roger federer and dominic team stephens hero. The eighth ranked stefanos citybus. Thank you is owen foreign his career against gets medvedev seats apostol ben rothenberg last week than medvedev plays sloppy adding. It's good sloppy. He can make you miss without your understanding how you just missed you. Miss shots that you don't mess. That's deep kind of. I watched medvedev in d._c. So i have a good sense of how well the dude is playing but i it didn't know before i saw a pretty oblique tweet on sunday. Is that three years ago medvedev was defaulted from a match on the second tier challenger tour. You're in a match which was played on clay and savannah georgia medvedev. Who was then ranked number. Two hundred sixty in the world was playing donald young young as a black american can player in the first at the chair umpire. A black woman in sandy franch went down to the court to check the ball mark on shot medvedev hit. There was close to the sideline. She called the ball out giving young the point which led medvedev mark. I know that you are friends. I am sure about it. After the game was over french called over tournament supervisor advisor medvedev was quickly defaulted for what the united states tennis association later referred to as questioning the impartiality of the umpire based on her race. There is unfortunately precedent for that incident in two thousand one. Australian lleyton hewitt claimed that a black line judge at the u._s. Open was calling foot-faults on him to to favor hewitt's black opponent american james blake. I've only been foot-faulted of one end. Look at him. Look at him. Look at him. Mate hugh had said look at him. I and you will tell me what the similarity is. Get him off. The court. Look at what he's done. Hewitt was not penalized during a match or afterwards the u._s. Us open tournament director brian earley who you may remember as the guy who came on the court during last year's yes open final when serena williams demanded to speak to the terminent director during her her conflict with chair umpire carlos ramos early ruled that there was no violation of quote grand slam code of conduct and that quote the evidence events was inconclusive as to the intent of mr hewitt's remarks to the chair umpire q._a. for his part said i come from a multicultural country. I'm not racial any way at all. Though hewitt didn't get sanctioned. John mcenroe called his on-court statement unforgivable. It has indeed followed hewitt for his whole career areo still hear people mention it when hewitt's name comes up medvedev's words have gotten less attention because they came in a minor league event probably also because he wasn't yet well known when it happened as far as i know medvedev has never commented on this <hes> the incident did get brought up in two thousand seventeen when at wimbledon medvedev eh opened his wallet and started throwing coins at the base of the umpire's chair to make a not so subtle point about the empires bias alleged bias towards his opponent it

"Me about nearly twenty years to queens when Lleyton Hewitt was in his absolute pump, and he was he, he was about to go into Wimbledon, and he was winning everything. He'd won the US open, and I remember him hem in Todd Martin having a conversation in the locker room about how how'd you beat this guy with an attacking game because he's the best return in the world is the best Lauber in the world. He's the best mover in the world. So, so how can I serve volleyer get past him and Todd Martin? It had got to the conclusion, the way to do. It was with what he called junk. We're just trying to give him Dolly shots up the middle not ready. Give him much pace make him put all the pace on the board. And he actually got quite close Martyn did. And then Henman went against him in the final at queen's. And he said, I thought try it and he did. He tried. Slice and dice game really not going for anything really at all. And had sort of marginal success, but ultimately plays with much bigger games, and more rounded games like Federer and late in doubt, obviously Jackovitch now with the ones that too much for Lleyton Hewitt back then. But I do find that adapting of his game for dominant team. Very, very interesting. But the there was another rain delay Catherine, and there was actually a pretty massive choke from from dominant team wasn't he fired three automatic one stage closing victory. And then he he lost. He lost his serve when he was trying to serve it out. You had two match points that didn't he did. Yeah. You had to successive match points at forty fifteen and just sort of. Yeah. Choked, basically missed. I think four shots in a row just hand hand. The game to your age he she kept on shaking out his right on didn't he? It was very you know, his is on with leaden, and he clearly tightened up there have been in. I mean been he did. So, well, I mean, yes, that was a moderate mental, lapse, but most of the metal up ups and downs in, in the much even in the resumption today with from Jovic you know, that was a he was given a time warning for the time. He was taking on serve by the unpire and image to take a deep breath and keep his cool about it at the time. But then several games later wanted lost that third-set sat down at the change of ends and gave the unpire, she sure he the empire wars of not looked vaguely familiar, but he's not one that I'm, I'm not hugely familiar with his back. Catalogue of work gave him a ROY talking to really sort of, you know, quite serene Eskin terms of, you know, who do you think? Hugh, all. Do you have a play tennis? I actually the that really. Well, he just said, sort of. Yes, yes, I remember Jim Courier years ago, saying you just trying to get in the papers twenty years ago, and you're kinda gave him one of those you said, well done, you've made a name for yourself or something like that. Heats, the moment I understand. But it's not a not a great look. Right on the edge at that stage, Chuck E T took to the court for the for the full, sir. I was thinking, you know, sit to pass for Rinker when we talked about how he seemed emotionally right on the edge. That's an I thought that was the case for jerk rich. And then suddenly, he just hung his down stocks playing just brilliant, relentless metronomic. Focused tennis again. Nothing, right. Okay. He's, he's channeled brilliantly in and here he goes.

And he, he, he's playing Roddick who was world number two at the time, I was watching this on YouTube the other day. And Roddick is again, I mean he he's clearly not a natural on clay. We know that. But he was trying to take it too many wonder I sat first set tiebreak and yet in the Dow still came back and beta him. I think that just shows you what a big match temperament he had right there. So he was actually eighteen at a time but yeah, the youngest player to register a single victory in a Davis Cup final for winning nation and what it was number two in the world at the time. Yeah.

"That's okay too. This Shelley quick hits. When as you mentioned before, when did the French Open become Wimbledon in this way? Isn't it? I think you're pronouncing are. I think it's Wimbledon. One hundred percent highness town lawn tennis club when it become because I'm curious to talk to you guys about this. Serena Williams wore the black catsuits. When did you last year? Last year at the French Open, and I think it helped her with circulation just so she sang and maybe does. I mean, you know, they've got those like copper sleeves and stuff with hybris. Iverson sleeve understood if any of that. It's the athlete think something works like it works. Yeah, exactly. The French Open seems to me like the more open open. The ranch is the French fashion. Every break like the town is the headline that I, this jurists asked you the headline. Every headline I saw was the French Open cracks down on Serena rare band, right, advanced. And so I, I'm a skeptic naturally, you dig further. So I dig further and it says, well, what they actually did was implemented address code. But then I'm thinking, let's dig even further than that. Did they implement that? Because they hate Serena Williams. I don't know the answer to any of this. I know a lot of my colleagues would say, which is this is this could be very race motivated. I don't know if it's race motivate, but I do think France. Francis like wear black people in the nineteen twenties went to live because it was like more open in night, correct. And if you don't want black people, you're not gonna win the. World Cup. So I thought the French hated the juice. I didn't think straightaways, but the other part about it, she wants to wear pay. You know what I'm saying? Pyre wanted to smoke during a match, let it out. Right? You could have open sex in the locker. So is it was this? Was this implemented to crack down on Serena, was implemented a crackdown other or other players going to ask yourself? Why? I never had a dress code up into this point. It is weird. It's weird because other players aren't wearing that you wanna wear what you're most comfortable in. Like the second I saw Lleyton Hewitt wearing like a backwards hat, like he was rushing aid at Michigan and like it was so weirdly on his head, like kind of like halfway back on his house, that stuff on your well, how about this? How like anything goes into? How about this? Let's talk about venue for moment the All England, lawn tennis club is a prestigious private organization that me and you cannot enter if it isn't for the week of Wimbledon. The French Open is equally as office here in. Bang, flushing. We can go play on center court right now. Can we sign up front? Yeah, I've done it. It's a public park, right? If a woman wants to wear a cab, lack hot latex, which I think would be digital. Yeah, I don't understand. I mean, just think about it from venues is it's a bad Luther say, has she responded she? I mean in a weird way. You say she clapback around. I don't think she clapback. I think what she essentially said was a great relationship with the French Open. I will do what they asked me to do in other words, clapback clapback but no. But I do think she what's clapback clap, cats, someone snaps back, somebody clap, but I think it's a, it's a slippery slope clothing. And I think it I, it's not necessarily racially motivated. However, I do think they're like, well, she wore that last year. Yeah. What's next? Yeah, we got to cut this off at some point zero t and lingerie next time, but, but by the way, but I also would love that this is what I love about tennis. The athletes get to express themselves. Yes, they're not. They're not forced to wear the same as their teammate uniform their sport. And there have been many examples of people trying to make fashion statements that actually impede their play. Yes, and it's coach. I should've warned that. It's you and I have always regretted playing Skiba. They were just a mistake. He lost your toenails. Good, six, thank God. They came back, but the, yeah, I this, this does this did come out of left field for me and also French Open. Like do you want ratings? Do you want?
