Tennis: Novak Djokovic sensationally kicked out of US Open for hitting linesperson
"Is going to go down as probably I think he already is one of the best players to ever play the game. He's the number one player in the world. He was the overwhelming favorite to win the US Open. When it's all said and done, Novak Djokovic could have more majors than Roger Federer. You know, it's very possible, so he's a great player. But he's been known to have a temper on the court from time to time. Is he John McEnroe? No, of course not. But there was an incident A few months ago, We threw his racket and it almost hit a line stretch. Well, I want to play you a little bit of audio. Keep in mind. This is at the US Open from two days ago where Novak Djokovic was just broken Serve what It means is he just lost his game he was serving. It's not something you want to have happen to you when you're the number one player in the world, So he just this was literally seconds after he just misses a shot. He loses the point and he picks up a tennis ball, and he hits it. At a fairly good rate of speed, not trying to hurt anybody, but we'll get to that. But here's the live audio when it took place the side rail if it had a little if he had had a little higher would have gone right into the camera person. This one. He hits back and it's right towards the line person. And if it's all right, believe it hit her in the throat. Yeah, he's right. It did. So everybody was kind of shocked, right? It wasn't one of those situations where Oh, no. Look what happened. Everyone was trying to figure out what the hell just happened. Well, it turns out As the commentator just said that Novak Djokovic out of anger hit a tennis ball to the side rail. That's at least that's what he was trying to Dio. Instead, he connects head on. With a young female lineswoman. Right in the throat, So I don't know if she was young. She was 18 She maybe forties fifties sixties. I don't know. She falls to the ground holding her throat. It was a scary moment, but you know, you get hit in the throat. You never know what's going to happen anyway. It was really bad moments later. Termine officials get together and I knew what was going to happen because I know the rules of tennis. They disqualified him in the first set in the fourth round, the number one player in the world in a major the U. S Open now. Let me give you my opinions on this. First of all. When you decide to take out your anger, whether it's on your racket or tennis ball. You better while Dan make sure you don't hit anybody. Why? Well, first of all, I don't want to hurt anybody, and I don't think Djokovic was trying to hurt anybody. Clearly, this was unintentional. But it is your responsibility to know where you're hitting a tennis ball to know where you're throwing your racket and Novak Djokovic has been playing with fire for years. He's had incidents like this before where it was very close to hitting aligns person. There's a rule in tennis, and that rule is very simple. It doesn't matter whether it's intentional or not, if you make any sort of contact, and it's not in the middle of the point, for example, if you hit a shot in the middle of a point, and it hits the lines person, you're obviously not going to get penalized because you know that's a completely different. But if you throw a racket Or if you hit a tennis ball in anywhere, and it strikes anybody. You are immediately disqualified. This has happened before. That's exactly right. Thank you, Mr Mcclosky. It's happened several years ago with another player who's still in the open right now, if I recall It's a very simple rule. Don't do it, and if you're going to take your anger out on your racket or tennis ball, make sure you don't hit anybody. It's very simple. It's clearly in the rules, but I have a
Kelly Reichardt First Cow
"Welcome to film spotting back in early March one of the most anticipated films of the year for US Josh Kelley, records first cow finally came to theaters, and then less than two weeks after its release the COVID nineteen pandemic force, the nation's movie theaters to close along with just about everything else meeting that most people never got a chance to see it. It it wasn't quite the last movie I saw pre pandemic. The penultimate I think I fit in birds of prey, just after I scout, that sounds right and man, my so grateful we were able to get first cow, because to have to sit for a few more months without seeing it as many people had, that would have been tortuous. Yeah, the pandemic. Records plans to come to Chicago when we were scheduled to sit down with her for an interview fast forward now to July first cow is now finally available to rent on demand, and we got a chance to talk to Kelly Reicher by phone later in the show will revisit our first cow review from back in March and hopefully more of you have had a chance to catch up with it now that it is available to rent I though it is our conversation with Kelly Reichardt in addition to first cow. Films include 2016 certain women that starred Kristen Stewart Laura, dern and her frequent collaborator Michelle Williams before that she offered us night moves that was about a trio of radical environmentalists, one of those played by Jesse Eisenberg and she gave us of course meek's cutoff. Which I think is still her masterpiece in Oregon trail set. Film that yeah, a lot of people consider among the very best of the last decade Wendy and Lucy was the film before that one. This was a doomed road trip movie again with Williams, and then the first film that I saw of Hers Atom I think you as well two thousand six's old joy, that one like I call centers on male friendship records debut film river of grass that came out back in nineteen, ninety four for first cow reichert return to the Pioneer Era Pacific northwest setting of Meek's cutoff. Cutoff for a tale of unlikely friendship capitalism, and yes, oil leaks in the movie, a cook from the east to play by John McEnroe joins a group of for trappers Oregon there. He meets Orion lease King Liu a Chinese immigrant, the to become friends and set out on a risky business venture together. Also, there is a cow. It's the first cow in the area. Josh indeed floating down the river in one of the movies more memorable images I'd say absolutely. Let's get to that conversation with Kelly Reicher now. Call me cookie. Mother died when I was born, and then my father died. I never stopped moving. It's a good thing stopped at the puzzle. No way for women to stop. have account cow in the. same place for cows. That's no place for white men. He's A. Since virginity here. Kelly thanks so much for coming back on spotting. It's great to have you nice to be here in virtually exactly so josh and I have both spoken very very favorably of the film, actually our favorite film of the year so far between us, and we both talked about it as almost a parable, a movie that in a story that seemingly very simple, the kind that maybe could even be passed down orally, and without any heavy-handedness or easy moralizing impart. Truths are we on the right path? Do you see I cal that way? I'm. A visual person so. Making it is a audible story I. How came from Jonathan Raymond's novel? The half life. I I'd have to think about it. I haven't thought about it in those terms of course moist thinking about it in images. Yes, so When you say. It's your favorite film. I don't know why you have to qualify it and say so far to stop watching other things. But seems fair. That seems fair. I'm sure you're like A. I think all those qualities topping out exist? I just yeah. I haven't thought about it. In terms that of course I I think maybe a better way to phrase that would have been if if you think about it and I know that this sounds almost like it's simplifying, but whether or not you think about this project, or any other is in terms of imparting kind of lesson, or is there. Is there some? Is there something you were trying to teach to the audience? No No. No I don't think so. I mean I. Know I would not want to think in those terms I mean I hope it has. Layers to it that there's things to think about and Questions to ask as far as. I mean ultimately I think like to focus on the friendship and kept blake quote in the beginning. That's in John's. Novel to remind myself that ultimately are making a film about friendship, and there are these teams of capitalism and You know running through out the new the but It has to be considered like just figuring out how to do seem sort of. Where the power lies in a scene, so it's not like I'm not thinking about those things, but I'm Only, in terms of how they relate to cooking, King Lou not in terms of. Some world message or cheek I World should not be being taught from me. That's for sure.
Yannick Noah Interview
"We've had a week off and. Has Gone to get his haircuts. Catherine's been hanging out with Magnus. The dog I've been stressing about my football team west from job in as they try to throw promotion away. That may or may not mean something to you, and we will be back with tennis podcasts over the coming weeks and months altogether chat in as we normally do, but today we have a very very special interview with the French Open champion of nineteen eighty-three, the world's number three as his highest ranking, but that really doesn't tell the story of Yannick who is unquestionably the coolest man I have ever met Davis Cup winning captain. Three Times Fed Cup winning captain as well and had a hugely successful music career. Once his tennis stays had come to an end I had the chance to meet him just over twenty years ago when he joined the champions tour. Tour retired players who just traveled to will played matches against one another him and John McEnroe and beyond bog, and all these greats of the game, and just got to know him a little bit at that time. He was always suggest to me. I haven't seen him for about ten years, but I managed to get in contact with him through a couple of other people when we were researching and trying to set up interviews full at tennis, relived series, particularly the French Open, so that we could tell that story, and you'll have heard an excerpt perhaps of this interview when we covered his run to that nineteen, eighty three French Open title, but the entire interview. It's just joy, and it will improve your mood, and if you do enjoy the into you tell your friends family, let your social media, and what's that group's now about it because it will just leave them happier than when they started listening to. It has Yannick Noah. I'd like to go right back to the beginning of your of your career, and even before your career and the reason for your career and. I believe a meeting with Arthur Ashe. Yep Absolutely. Our used to leave the group in Cameroon, Africa and We were I was playing detail club tennis was. Not, very, big in Cameroon in the whole country, back nine court, so to play tennis was very privilege radio privilege so. so we used to go to the club at night, but at that time my parents couldn't afford a racket in one day. When I heard that? Some Americans were coming to the club saw. Americans you know so. So Marty Riessen Charlie Pasarell, Tom, ochre, and Arthur Ashe where doing tour in Africa. And they happen to play one day my club. During the clinic they decide. They played with the kids. And I played with Sir and Liked what he saw. I was slim press. You know he was my heroes. At the end of the clinic gave me a racket is racket. Head competition that worth like. Probably Probably what my parents would making every month. and it was you know it was like a dream for me to meeting. Dr Racket Sonya poster. Saying To Yannick I hope I'll see one that. So that was very funny. But the next thing that happened is after this story went to the French Open and he talked to shut. It was the president of the Federation. I told him that he was a little kid was playing. Or was in French. Speaking. Country and And I I. The scholarship came to friends because of author I played in niece for few years. And? The first time I played in Wimbledon That was nine years after we met was in Wimbledon because as for wild card. That was accepted and we play doubles on center court. So that was a beautiful story, so yes, the so mean Africa. And he was a big part of my story. Because and after that you know. For some reason, he was always like you know. Not Too far helping me when I was younger growing up, and then you know played with him at Wimbledon, the first tournament. Back in the days. It was called Super Seris. I was playing Richmond Virginia where he was born. And that was the first tournament I one. Super Series and As I was you know going through the tournament semifinal quarterfinals? Semifinals Playing Roscoe Tanner and these gentlemen comes into locker room sold demand. It comes. It goes Yanic if you win. Arthur is coming tomorrow SEO really worrisome. Is Dad. So that was that was something I beat Roscoe and An author flew to Richmond I played Yvonne in the finals. Won The won. It and Arthur gave me the cup in his hometown, so that was really special.
Wimbledon Re-Lived 1985
"Hello, everyone and welcome to tennis relived Wimbledon relived day three. We've taken a trip back to nine hundred, seventy, eight and nineteen, eighty and today we're taking a trip back to nineteen eighty five. We are firmly now in the territory of David, laws voiced and cavernous memory I. Don't know if that's a good thing necessarily, but but it's where we are you doing David. I I'm enjoying trip down memory lane, and yeah, it's it's. It's very interesting. Watching scenes from my childhood that I have not watched since and trying to. Find out whether my twelve year old brain. Had any sort of accuracy in its its conclusions. You couldn't quite remember watching the one thousand nine hundred eighty book McEnroe final that we covered yesterday. The you were aware of it in your consciousness. Do you remember watching? Boris Becker Kevin Curren Nine, thousand, nine, hundred five. You remember where you were. Vividly. Are would typically do you remember what your head was like? It was appalling. It was it was probably quite similar to Kevin. Currency if I'm honest. All sort of curly and waffly. So I would have been twelve years of age I just got into the the senior school is as we used to call it and I was just watching Wimbledon back toback hour upon hour, and there was nothing else tennis wise to watch I didn't even know. Existed I was absolutely fascinated after that tournament to try to find. Opportunities to see a tennis match with Boris Becker playing somewhere else. To See. 'cause I couldn't understand how. How does Barsebaeck not win every tennis match that he plays given how hard he hits the ball, I knew nothing of clay coats and hardcourts and things that did as a twelve year old seeing seventeen year old win Wimbledon. Did it did it make you think oh? Crikey, I'd better start achieving some life goals I remember I remember watching the dull when the French Open realizing we the same age and thinking. Catherine! You've achieved nothing in your life. Salt. Out. The way couldn't it could inspire you or it could make you feel like enough to fight. Now on C., no, because twelve to me seventeen was really old, and seventeen was basically a man, and I was such a young child including my age, but I look back at it now, and it does make me shudder to think of what this we having just watched it to watch. This guy who seventeen who physically is easing credible presence, and he's muscular and strong and strapping, but he's got this really young. Young, face, and he you hear him. We've just had him interviewed after the match as well and and it does make me shudder to think my word this on his shoulders, and yet it was also very exciting at the same time. Not your formative Tennessee's will have been spent watching Boris Becker the pundit. Boris Becker the coach. I know obviously you'll have been very aware of know what he achieved in his career, but actually. Watching it back in seeing a seventeen year old Boris Becker wate struck by. Well. It's actually quite difficult to reconcile as you were saying the Boris Becker. I've always known with this Boris Becker. I actually think that this achievement of voice rose Becker winning Wimbledon seventeen oversee I've always been aware of it, but I and in many ways it's. It's become a more extraordinary achievement as time has passed, and as the sport has got kind of older, and it's hard to make those breakthrough so young, but also in a way. It's actually one of those achievements, which is so of its time that if you didn't live through it, it's really quite difficult to understand the impact that it had and the feeling that it gave people, so it's interesting to go back and read about it and walked in here David's memories of it. I mean what I'm struck by is the sense of belonging that he seems to have on that court. He is striding around the coal like he owns the place. He would go on to say that it was his living room. Denise and Toco famously, but and it's like that he's. He's walking with such confidence playing such. Tennis okay, it's one thing to have the game another thing to believe in the game and know that it's a game that you can win, and that just comes through on just as you watch all the match really. I didn't anywhere with confidence when I was seventeen I was just to a crippled bull of angst. And Self Doubt I. Mean I I just can't relate. Assholes, everyone, stop looking at me. Not Looking at you, you think everyone is looking at you any of that. Yeah I think my my mum describe. That is the peculiar phase when you didn't like taping taken.
"mcenroe" Discussed on The Tennis Podcast
"As a tennis player. One or later? The best minute. Life. While I felt like it really wasn't in a way too bad because I got a lot of a lot of good things came out of the match I had new level of respect among my peers in. Among the people that watch their fans and the media so I mean in a way was it was sort of match that I felt like I came out as a loser so even though it was unbelievably disappointing. I felt like in a way that the way people viewed me, had the level of respect and appreciation for what I brought to the table, actually went up, so it wasn't that difficult. Fascinating that both of them say say there that after that fourth set tiebreak, they both McEnroe would be the one to go on and win it. Yeah I I. Remember when Book described how he fell how how shocked I was. Because of how little you heard from him, how literally gave away about how he felt at a given time I couldn't believe that this man because you can, you can not see. That's on his face. Even when watching it back forty years on knowing that he's, he said that subsequently you can't see that. He's internalized all of that. The only moment you you re recognize it I think in hindsight is when you see him slump to his knees in victory, and then sit on his chair at the end of the match, and you can see how drained is how. How much is taken out of him? I sometimes talk about how deep ref on the Dow has to dig sometimes to win these events, and gathered a places that scam, and looking at the face of bulk after the match I got that sense, but yeah, it's. It's really something actually it from him. I, mean the. The victory for ball is just enhanced by the nature of it and the character. He shows to overcome that fourth set tie-break loss, because as you said he, the seven championship points in that type well in that set five of them in the tie-break. He then has a further seven break points in the fifth set which he doesn't take, so that's basically fourteen. Fourteen chances to kind of put Makomo away doesn't take any of them, and I think the fact that he eventually comes through. That makes his achievement or the more remarkable because he's had. He's had to stay down the human feeling of not taking your chance. It's a failing a sanctuary in those moments and yet he still managed to come through and I think. Because of that, he's kind of facing. Not only Makomo and opponent, but he's facing himself as an opponent, and this is something that again Frank Deford wrote. We said we already knew the great. Bowl could beat any opponent in fact, how much does it really matter five wimbledons or four? But this afternoon we found that ball could not possibly beaten by himself either, and this is why victory matter so much because because there was so much opportunity for him. To fold in that match after not taking chances in the fact that he didn't just makes it an all the more remarkable feat and older, more human fate from someone who can pay a to belong to some kind of higher around the way doesn't change his emotions out to match. You know Makomo, the much more relatable character with his with his emotions on full display, but bork actually did something. By, overcoming himself, and that is I mean that is the ultimate human achievement really, isn't it? I kind of find the Ford to narrate my life. Or just sort of assess it. Come up with the words. The. We cons in order to to find a way to put it into some perspective. It was an absolute triumph of will that fifth set from your ball, and and that's not to say that it was a failure of will from from John McEnroe, because. What he did that day was also triumphant and that was. A? That was evidence by by the way he he had won over the crowd they were cheering for him by the end. Yeah, the standing ovation, and and that would scarcely seemed possible, given the the reception that he that he had walking onto the court that day, in although he looked in absolutely broken figure. The, you could still. Detect some pride in that he knew heads he had been a part of something extremely special, and and done something pretty special that day, even if he didn't end up the trophy. I would draw some parallels to the figure that round the Dow cuts in the two thousand seven Wimbledon final after he lost in five cents to federal. And he was sobbing in the locker room afterwards, absolutely inconsolable, but then the next year he went to beat him and and I think. It's the realization. There's a realization when they come to terms with the demotion. The upset that they've got that close to the man, and if I'm that close well, I can probably go into the step further to I was reading a an interview that McEnroe did. Years ago with the Sean ingle in of the Guardian. Winning tie-break was the greatest feeling he ever had with. It even surpassed actually winning the title I. Think just that moment against all it was. It was as though something clicked and saying. Okay you didn't go onto win the match, but he knew that. He'd unlocked something that he would go on to win more matches against bogue and Wimbledon finally. Mary Carillo was was there that match and of course remembers it and and its immediate aftermath very vividly. Let's hear from. Yes I remember it very well an interesting the. A lot of fans don't remember it properly. They'll go up to McEnroe and say man when you be Morgan, that amazing match. And, John of course isn't correct them. Why why would he do that? Yeah, thanks, man! That was a great match. Yeah. John Yeah I'll take credit for that win sure. I think it's awesome. I. Can tell that I have watched the BBC call of that match and. Again I think that we gin up matches so much on American television shows so many graphics and so many replays in so many fans in girlfriends and crying parents, and that matches such a beautiful watch, because it is so clean and even in the tiebreak. which made it feel even now when you watch it, it still feels Ihnen it just. They knew they trusted the match. On the. They trusted that Alma this is. You know they're all we have to do. Is Point cameras at this thing? And let it play, and it was, it was a it was gorgeous i. I still I'm only because maybe because it is of my time and I had grown up with John McEnroe. Maybe I still consider it the most remarkable thing I'd ever seen ever. Able should I loved I loved how played out? I Love Bjorn's reaction winning one. He even he couldn't believe that he John Really thought after he won that tie break in the fourth said. He was going to win the fifth, and he had a look too deep to break board right away in the fifth, and then bjorn just served out of his mind and never looked back in really didn't. Seem give John. Much Room in that sits set, but here's what I remember the next day and I were flying home. On the same plane, John's father and John and I keep in mind. I was back in cattle, class and John and his father. First Class. And I hadn't seen drawn after the match. So once. The plane was up in the air. I tried to pick my way forward into first class in. Keep in mind that you know John and acted like. As bugs bunny would say a Maroon for much of those two weeks, and he was just driving people crazy in in Brazil, calling him a Brat and punk and everything else, and then he plays this glistening match for the ages and. It was. Anybody even if you didn't like Johnny, add to give it some right so I. Make my way up first class and there's a curtain separating me from from him from John. And I poked my head, and the stewardess immediately. Try To stop me. I try understand I'm pretty shifty looking. Specially in the morning, but I saw Catherine. I saw John, had his share was flat out like a bed, and he was out cold and Mr. McEnroe had every newspaper in the world. All the British tabloids who'd been..

"If that, if people keep make tennis to keep making tennis films, we'll keep doing reviews, but. Nobody, has since then unfortunately, I forgot. Identity a dirty drunk to gin and tonics, and I forgot that it was essentially a foreign language film. and my level of concentration of to to was not sufficient, so breezed over quite a lot of the Swedish dialogue. And engaged with a lot more of the McEnroe scenes. But, certainly the the narrative arc that placed on it. I can't speak for felt like this at the time was the. Bloomberg knew. That it was only a matter of time, before mcenery got him, and got the best of him, and overtook that rivalry, and it was a question of how long he could hold on for. Could he hold on long enough to win another Wimbledon maybe too, and of course he he did. That year in one thousand nine hundred spoiler alert. He lost the tiebreak, but he won the match beyond Borg but even. I'm I'm jumping the gun a bit here, but even in those moments when just immediately post victory? It's almost as if he's thinking well. I did it, but if it was that close this time. Am I gonNA. Be Able to do it again. It was I don't know I mean. He was only twenty four. At the time. You went onto to retire the following year I know he attempted to come back, but it. It did look to me like He. He knew the McEnroe was coming for him, and he was just trying to to hang onto his dominance as long as he could, and it comes across as though if I'm not keeping the straight up. Up and if I'm not the top dog. Then I'm not going to be doing it. Whereas seen the dial in federal, go through these different stages of their career where they've struggled with injury. Oh, they've been knocked off their perch. And then they've just come back and there's never been a question mark in their minds that that's what they would do. This was very seen very straightforward for bog I either I'm the best drama play seems to me that this. This rivalry. Energized McEnroe he got such a high off playing ball, but As No, the rivalry didn't seem to like it as much she he he was intimidated by. I suppose as you were saying once. He realized Makomo had his number year later that was it. He was out of the game. It's interesting how the rivalry just took a different shape for both for both players I think. I think all the superstitions weighed heavily on board and all the all the attention. It's really hard. I. Think for us is people who weren't around then to appreciate what life was like for him. Well it must have been annoying. He won his first sight in a Holiday Inn because then he had to keep staying in the Holiday Inn. Must Do. Finance funny at one that I one in the Ritz. This is a great line from Steve Tickner in the Book high-strung which are highly recommend if you WANNA have a rate of. The year was like, and he said when bog I came to Wimbledon in nineteen, seventy three. People were taken by I. Mean He didn't Atro- word? He didn't do interviews you'd nobody heard from there just saw him in this mystical figure, and this is what I think was so appealing and apparently. Was the closest thing that you would get to the Beatles in terms of following from from fans and apparently nine, hundred seventy three. He was flattened by three hundred girls, chasing him, and when he was on the ground related David. They said he he apparently said well yes. I was a little scared as I. Lay in the dust on the street with girls all over me, but it was fun to. has anyone ever said those words before or since? I'm I'm guessing no. I mean this is the. I mean the tennis rivalry tennis era and I. Think Steve also written about this. Where tennis crossover into. Cultural. Kind of influence and I, you know just the kits. They were wearing iconic. The fact that the film's been made about it was iconic. The the celebrity status. The book had has probably not happened in tennis since I mean. All the all the characteristics. Of Celebrity, rarely rather than more than just tennis. Yeah, down to the fact that I mean. John McEnroe was. The first sponsor response easy I'm not sure either those words should person sponsored person if if Nike, wasn't. He was picked by by Nike off to. One thousand, nine, hundred, Ninety, seven, run to the Wimbledon semifinal and they weren't making kit. At this stage in one, thousand, nine hundred and he's wearing nike shoes. But. He's wearing. Think surgery to Keeney Kit. I mean both of those. Kits that they were wearing. They've never gone out of fashion. They usually things come in and out, but I mean. I mean in particular, be onboard, but both of those outfits is never a stage when viewing book outfit wouldn't have been cool. I mean it would have been tight. Not Never on cool. Yeah, you've got to have a certain physique for that. But is also notable. Just how much color is on what they're wearing because it was. Still a predominantly white rule of clothing that you had to wear it Wimbledon, but it was nothing like it is now where even the tiny little bit of color. We were all laughing about Roger. Federer's orange soles of his shoes didn't look great. Didn't it look gray? Was Anybody saying Oh God? It's such an insult to tradition that there's a red headband on shake. Those were cool kids. I mean some of the ones in the in the early nineties not so much. But the other thing. Struck me was. We're watching this match in. They're playing white tennis balls as well which carried on doing until one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty six, when they went to yellow and what I didn't realize. Is that white tennis balls stopped being used everywhere else in nine hundred seventy two, but Wimbledon insisted on keeping it as part of its white role, so that will be why we didn't see any white tennis balls when we reliving Roland Garros we were having that conversation in yeah, because we knew they came in and eighty six at Wimbledon, but we'd watch those early matches. It wrote on garrison the. The eighties with yellow tennis balls and Wimbledon were also last were late to adopt the six all tie-break that that come in elsewhere in the seventies, but when any change to it at nine, hundred seventy nine, so this was only the second year of a six all tie-break, so John McEnroe wins the first sent six one. It's all going swimmingly for him. As we said beyond borger famously slow start, so maybe he would have been mentally prepared for for the bog onslaught, which which came next, he found his feet and one the next two sets as two-sets-to-one up. He's is really a perfect indication of the tennis scoring system the end of that second set because. Board is not had a single look McEnroe's serve the whole sand. Suddenly it gets to five sakes and McEnroe seventy to take it to a tiebreak, and he gets a little bit edgy and suddenly. Comes up with a couple of backhand passing shots to to pink the second set and from there, the momentum of the master switches Boggs got. Not quite a spring in spring his stat because he doesn't. He doesn't really do that doesn't really change his emotion throughout, but you can see. He's a little is just more dialed in from the rest of the match. Makomo slumps when he loses that second set has A. Sort of carries over, and it doesn't play what in the third set and It's just a perfect illustration of just. How much can just turn on a? Just on a dime. Is Thinking McEnroe needs some sort of umpire outburst in order to to fire himself up. He did slump bitten sort of retreat into his shell you. He's looking for that. Spark and that was. That was not sure he'd ever express it like this, but the, but that was why he's to have those outbursts they. A lot of They are advised. For most people they would. They would lead to a dip in form, but for McEnroe. They used to lead to a surge more often than I don't. Think that that was. An interesting one..

We're away of the lost law years. We're also A. Little Way off your tennis memory? Do you remember the book? Much is one of those ones where you can kind of convince yourself you? You remembered it. You've seen so much. Sitter since since that year. That's a good question because I properly remember nineteen, eighty one, which was the rematch for these two plays Joma can are winning the title for the first time in nineteen eighty one I remember watching that I think I remember it because of the buildup that I guess things that I'm out ahead on the news or in coverage of Wimbledon with telling me, but also my dad remember him me asking an I think it probably happened in eighty before I really knew what tennis probably was, but asking him. Who are these people and he may explaining to me, the beyond bowl could won this title full-time in a row and we now because of Federa- and never survivor and. Jock itch mores and the and the down in these areas where they've just gone flying past Grand Slam total wise. We. We normalized a little bit for Wimbledon titles in a row back then it was just not something that happened at all. I mean he won. Six French opens as well as five wimbledons. As we've heard in the commentary both on the radio and TV. He was regarded as the champion of champions. The dominant player of the year as as good as all those were McEnroe. Lendl Bowl was the man. He was the top seed coming into nine, thousand, nine, hundred eighty Wimbledon as he say the the four time defending champion McEnroe with the second seat. He'd beaten beyond book in the US Open final the previous year in one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy nine. But he hadn't reached a Wimbledon final since stat famous run. He had as eighteen year old in in nineteen, seventy seven. When he reached, the hadn't reached semifinal since since that running seventy-seven as a qualify when you start to Jimmy Connors, good his revenge on Connors in the semi final in one, thousand, nine, hundred, Eighty David in a match, which when quite some way see the fact that McEnroe was was booed onto court. Room when walking out for that final against beyond bog and. Women I mean Wimbledon now is an particularly partial to Boeing, but Wimbledon then had never seen or heard booing before now, and it's interesting because we've just watched the final and. Mechanized behavior, basically impeccable. You don't see any flashpoints a toll and then we've just gone back and watch the start of the match to sit. Watch again. The kind of entrance and to see the booing and they show highlights a few little moments from the semi final against corners and twenty eight minutes in mackinaw is asking for the referee to come out onto the court. And Connors is stood at the back, smiling and spinning his record on his finger, and then he goes into the crowd and sits on the front row. The spectators basically to laugh at macro WHO's losing his mind and the ten? The there was something almost chemical. It seemed about corners that set him off in a way. That bog calmed him down and it's quite interesting when you when you try. Try to think back to what was the advent of John McEnroe this? The Wild Man on the call and the way he tells is a match I, think against a fellow. American or an Australian. I think it was at the time Phil. Dent we think of Thailand his son being American, but he said I was somebody who give calls to my opponent if I thought that they were wrong. And then somebody pulled me aside and locker room. Said you don't do that. We don't do that here. And he said, and then one day I got angry about something that happened on court and I kicked my record across the call and everybody booed, and I thought okay. Then and I kicked it again and an an it almost started him off and. And he just and that's that's when the the whole reputation begun frank to full describes the in sports illustrated.

"Everyone John Wartime here. Sports illustrated tennis podcast. Everyone is doing well our guest. This week is severe Panja. Who is a professor at the University of California Santa Barbara teaches creative writing Asian American literature, and also more importantly for our purposes has just written a terrific tennis book members only which tennis figures prominently both as a plot device in a metaphor I. I absolutely devour this book. We will link it link the Amazon page on our show page, but this is a fun conversation talking about tennis talking about writing talking about tennis as a storytelling device full disclosure Samir I share a publisher and publicist, so I want to dispense with that, but this was a really fun conversation a fun book timely book. I think people will love book members. Only it's called, and here is a on enjoyable half hour conversation here we go. I start off by congratulating him. I really you know people. Binge Watch TV shows I. binged dread members only and. Plowed through edited, it did not disappoint. Grad seriously congrats I. Mean it's it's great. It's it's really. SMART, and funny, and I thought we'll talk about this later. I thought very topical, and it's also does. Does tennis right so you succeeded on many dimensions as far as I'm concerned. CONGRATS I. I will say that you saying it did tennis right? Is means particularly lot because you know. I think. In terms of different kinds of readers, right, there's there's. Specific details if I'm reading something in if somebody gets a core detail wrong, which is not that big of a deal? It can be. It can break it for me. You know I'm Mike. Okay I can't do this anymore. Right I can't go down this road trusting this person and so I'm really happy to hear that I mean. Tennis is a big. I love the sport and we can also talk about that as well, but so that's great. Thank you I I. I wrote it with a certain kind of. Kind of propulsion in mind, right and I kinda wanted to be read that way, and then hopefully there other things. You know that you can go back to, or you can think about in ways in terms of how Raj operates in this in this book that can take a little bit more consideration, but you know in these in. These days. I want to read a book quickly. And I think in some ways I wanted to write a book that people could read quickly as well. The I say it's your talk. Not I feel like you're talking about a nonfiction book and everything's on the table. Right everything the next serve I feel I. Don't know what lessons You'd like me to take I don't know how much we can reveal here. Well, let's start you. To your character, so let's let's start there To to tennis fans, it is not spelled R. A. J. as your character is, but you know Raj is a name of relevance. Tennis fans You, you mentioned the details. You Got Right now. I think you're absolutely right. I think the second somebody writes about tennis of calls. A rally volley! We've got issues right? You did not do that this either was a studious research or else. You really have some grounding in tennis. What's what's your background sport? Yeah, you know so I so we came. We moved to America when I was eight years old. I lived in Bombay until I was eight owes a huge cricket fan. I played a ton of cricket. And we moved into A. Kind of an apartment complex when we arrived here and and. There was a tennis court. Right next to it where we're well. This was in the East Bay. This was east of. Glee in in in a in a city called San Pablo. and. You know. I think when I was like nine or ten years old, there was a man who would always come there in hidden serves like ten down the t ten out. Why ten down the T ten out wide, and I just started going down there and Collecting balls for him. And this! I think a you know him and his wife. They didn't have kids, and you know in a lovely gesture. At some point. He showed up with a tennis racket. And kinda showed me how to shift the grip for forehand and backhand, which was my first official lesson in the game and so. I so I started playing there. I played through high school and you know. and. Then I stopped playing the game for years. I stopped playing college. I didn't play it in Graduate School You know I moved my wife and I moved to new. York For five years where I had my first academic job. Getting Court New York as you know, is not an easy task, and so I have always kind of played the game, and then also I just love the game the pro game as well right, which is that I wasn't quite. Aware of the Borg McEnroe Connors era, but I think I really started watching you it with lendl real under at Burgh those are the I think in Michael Chang, so that was kind of mid might time said mid eighties moment. And so I've been kind of a fan of the sport in that way throughout the time and then. You know it's a great middle aged sport like I, love. I love the sociology of it. The player talking yeah. Yeah Yeah. Yeah, so in both of those things, so that's why I'm just. It is as a kind of as a spectator as a player It's a one sport that I kind of gravitate towards the much.
Artist Bruce Sulzberg on painting Rafael Nadal
"Welcome to the tennis dot. Com Pot guest. I'm one of your host. Nina Pantic joined in this episode by my co host. Irena Falconi! Hey, guys! How's it going? And we have a very interesting episode of everyone today we are with the owner artists of cells media. Fine Arts Bruce Cells Bruce Welcome thank you, thank you so much for having me. Bruce? Do you have a very interesting story? I don't think a lot of people know it has to do with Ross doll. You don't usually have artists on our show, so that's why this is very unique and special you wanNA. Tell everyone story when it comes to tennis. Even if you're not a player or coach or tournament organizer, so let's start with you know where you are in the world during this quarantine and how your life is going these days, it's been very interesting. Interesting just like I would say probably ninety nine point. Nine percent of the world is trying to figure out what the hell you're. GonNa do during his time. you know the one fortunate part about it as being an artist, I've been locked in the studio painting new paintings and working with different ideas and working with RAF and his team Carlos Costa to figure out new and inventive ways to drive in bill business and do things that we are currently not used to doing. So it's been. It's been a wild interesting two months of figuring that out. What's your interest level tenants? Do you play? How did you get into this? US Fascinating I'm actually one of those weird concoctions of I'm an artist athletes so I was a big time athlete. As a kid played eight years of Baseball's all-star in baseball play basketball. I was all star in basketball. Basketball led me. Tennis I was a basketball player. Freshmen in highschool and kind of got into. An argument with my coach basically just decided to leave basketball. And I picked up a tennis racket and I had just. It was a natural thing for me to do. And before I knew I, had a professional coach, and my coach was played played on the tour and played John McEnroe. He saw me play and before I knew I was training with some of the best players in northern, California. And so I played high school career. played college and I still train. I still training a tribe while afford the pandemic I was out there every week. just started getting back out there about a week ago when they released the courts, but tennis is definitely in. My jeans had so much, so that my son plays college tennis. I'm actually had a scholarship to Chapman University as I used to play and made teams freshman, and he's also coach now, too, so and even though he still in college, but yes, definitely in my blood and strange enough. Raw Molly the owner of art encounter. That is my distributor. It turns out the way that we got this deal with him. Was He was tennis player in his whole family's sex players, and when he saw the original painting that I did have all sprouted in hadn't seen them in years we. She just freaked out. Saying Oh my God. This is unbelievable what I told him. I have five hundred signed by the dog himself. Personally and myself and we did a whole thing back in the day. When we have this painting, he's like. Nope, that's it. We're going to do something, so it's been a very unique tennis story all the way around. I can honestly say I think it's been a while that I've actually heard someone say that. They're both an athlete an artist. When was When was the moment where you're figured out like? Wow, I actually have a knack for this whole painting thing. That was easier. I I was asking rg by the time. I was five six seven years old. My parents had me in special school. Special Art schools and You know it was something that they noticed when I was one years old that I can draw and I'd actually kept first painting I drawing than I ever did when I was one and They just knew my dad was artist. He never followed that trade. Actually went into corporate business, but my dad is very artistic used to do paintings. So I kind of had that gene in me. And I just knew at a very early age. That was what I was going to do my life. We hear so much about young athletes figuring out their skill set at a young young age at like three, four five, and to see that art is very similar as interesting for those who don't know the story Bruce is the owner of Salzburg Media Fine Arts, a broad range of professional sports team three. Of National. International athletes he got three D work of Rafa. Nadal for those are not watching this on video. It's behind him, but it's also going to be a link in our episode information. He's also got artwork of Muhammad. Ali Michael Jordan Prince. Fielder Dirk Nowitzki. Irk Nowitzki I'm not a basketball person. I'm sorry. Most importantly. It's the tennis painting that we're really here to talk about, and it's Three D. art, so I want to start with what is three art. What's the process for making an artwork like this before we get into the Roth story? This was very unique idea. That I came up with lean back in nineteen, ninety five, I was doing my very first art show at the New York our next on back in those days that was the largest art show in the world. Everything was painter of any place anywhere was there exhibiting in was at the Jacob Javits in New York City, so as massive and I back then you the jury to get in so jury to get an shared a booth with another artist, and when I was there, all brought was abstract paintings on canvas, because that's what I was painting at the Time Big Love Klee Miro. Picasso, that was kind of backroom basically, and we've been in the show for five days and insult. Damn painting and I told. My My. Fiance at the time in my mom was there with me. I gotTa Take I. Just need to go walk the show and I said. You know if I'm going to do anything in my life I've got to figure out how to do something that no one has ever done and for some reason and it's time. My Dad owned art gallery. Very very successful one back in San Francisco. East Bay and I just something popped in my head. work on glass. Just a glass on the second I got home I started Phil around layers of plexiglas and low and behold. That's how it was born I. Just we just figured out how to frame it how to do the whole thing in. One, doing where usually as an artist you paying on one level is a canvas most most of the time. You're just doing everything on that level of what I wanted to do with cigarette how to take a look at an image of a painting in break it up and put different parts of each of painting on glass, and then use spicer's to separate them, so there's space in between each layer. You get that natural three d look with no gimmicks, no anything no lighting. It's all based on different layers and different perspectives, so that's how it was born and. The risk on history.
"mcenroe" Discussed on The Tennis Podcast
"You're watching it and it's it's it's six three five one and then he then he wins. That set six teams. So He's two sets to love up and the he has so many chances including getting to two games all in the second having love forty on the lendl second serve and not breaking serve in that particular game lendl and went full to. Mcenroe breaks back but all the time. Mackinaw is the better player. That's how it feels. And he just doesn't convert the the key chances and then really noticeable the way his. I just just deserted him and and that becomes a monologue from McEnroe with the crowd. Doesn't it well or mortar point? We as viewers here. Mcenroe losing his temper. But he's not losing the temple with the line empires is he's having a god himself he calls himself a stupid. Moronic JERK He he misses a backhand by an shit. Four Games all and Jews and he goes got damn you this this just regularly rather much. The jet of Lendl throughout the much is really interesting. Well because it's very responsive to to macaroni. It's really competitive match in the very early stages but lentils in it. He looks like he's playing well and then and then it's clear that mcenery is just playing so well and so confidently that the this this kind of deflation in lend can only see him thinking. Well it kind. It doesn't matter how well they play. Because this guy is just on another planet and then second-set Lendl is as As Bud Collins described He said the guys naked out there without his forehand. Just such a great description. He is four hundred just was completely off the boil and he did look naked. He looks powerless and lost. In the face of this man playing just hypnotic tennis and then my can. Rick gives him a sliver of hope. The Guy Looks Lost and naked. How many times can I say naked in this in this podcast and McEnroe handsome hope on a platter? He shows him. That even is playing brilliant tennis even though lentils four hundred is deserted him. He doubts himself. And you can see Lendl Greg. Your third year you see lendl become wate ended up becoming as a champion this relentless figure who had this huge four hundred not semi great cross-court passing shot four and Z would hit. He hit a slight sort of early. The Dow Banana forehand down the line that he'd he'd got on the run. That was beautiful shot. He got a good backhand passing shot across court particularly but you started to see the that felt like the making give him an interview with him recently when he when he refuted that as being a kind of moment that defined his whole career. He was trying to say well look. Let's let's not forget I was. I was on the brink a lot I was and I just think I would have got there eventually anyway but maybe it might not happen like that. Maybe the scar tissue built as we've seen with certain players and and I mean Matt. He was he was a dominant player. We I think I don't really think I realized how dominant was everywhere else. Other than the slams time yeah he'd won it already thirty nine titles on the tour by this by this point but obviously none of those at the slams which I appreciate it either. I kind of thought that maybe he got to a few slam finals. But almost maybe wasn't ready to win them but he absolutely probably should have one of those first four. It was a good enough player too. I just think was interesting about this match as well is. It's held up as kind of quintessential choke if you like. It's kind of the match. That people will point to is Makomo choking so therefore expected his whole game to disintegrate. And yet as you go further into the match. He's still playing this gorgeous tennis and he looks like the better player throughout the whole match. Just what he doesn't do is take is opportunities and as you said those any any lets himself get distracted by things himself get distracted by the crowd's not turning against him by the cameraman. And as you said that that was just hope for lender and that that was a route back into the match Volendam. He didn't he didn't close McNamara. And that's what's gotTa hurt him because he was such a good from Rana in his career. I I had a quick look. I think he only lost one match two sets up in his whole career. You didn't lose these matches. He was a front runner who allowed his talent to take over matches when he was in control and Swannee. Alexis get away. Even though his tennis doesn't disappear he just doesn't take his chances and that is what does her. We know how much it hurts thin. That's shown by how all the way through where x where even sets four and five within Kinney's. He's not he's going to win. This IS NEAT. Even another result. I'm still I don't I'm thinking. How does he lose it from here? He's the two break points even in the fifth set isn't he? I think it about four games. All those two final sense. The one seven five seven five that gives you an idea of just how stressful it was out there. I mean if if you're watching it as we've just done what is it seventy six years on and it still stressful to watch when you even know the results that tells you just what it must have been like at the time. It was absolutely fantastic match. I I came out of it up. Lifted but fading just devastated for McEnroe. And we'll we'll talk about what that meant to him and and what we know of that after. We've heard from from Mary as well but I think we should hear from from Mary now because nobody knows John McEnroe really any better within ten circles than than she does she. She wanted mixed doubles title with him. In nineteen seventy seven and she knows what it meant to Joe McConnell. John should have against lendl in that incredible match and interestingly I cover the French withdrawn McEnroe every year on NBC. And as much as he likes parents and the event he he admitted to a certain melancholy as he wandered grounds. He knows that that was his chance. And so few American men had won that title. You know it had been a lot. Trabert dated back in the day. But and obviously Michael. Chang wanted at seventeen but John had his look and he choked and he knows he and he wasn't a choker by nature so that one haunted John won the junior. The nine hundred seventy seven. The first year he played at Roland Garros he won. The junior title mean. John was good on everything John would would be. John would have been great playing lunar tenants. If such a thing existed He did and he look the minute. His game was going to work on anything and he again. That was the start of Leno and that was the start. John Elway says my my best rivalry. My greatest rivalry was with Borg. That's not really true. That's his favorite rivalry. It's not his greatest. I mean he had a lot a lot more matches with a lot more people But Lendl beating him changed both of careers. I really feel that way. What are your memories of if that final in eighty four at the time? Oh I mean I just I. Of course I thought he was going to win. There is no doubt in my mind. Lendl had played in major finals and lost all of them and John was really playing. Well his his serve was taking the clay and kicking it out wide and he was doing he was doing well. And then you know. I think anybody who's watched that match could see that each at it started as anger. You know he was a cameraman who I knew that he got angry at and then he just he lost his temper and then he truly lost his way and once he knew that he had gotten some traction in that match he he was just ready to take it over. Leno was a terrific claycourt player because he had pretty long take back and pretty big Swings and the Klay gave him time to hit them John and his whole serve-and-volley crash dashed bumped in and come in. And you know John John New play clay as well but it was an absolute that John have one match FAC against particular opponents. As well I mean then he would. He would try. It's very rare that Johns anger got in the way of his success but on that occasion John Chambers could not could not recover from himself and Lendl took the event when you say that much that results the way it panned out change both careers. What's the what's the sliding doors situation for both for for McEnroe fee had? Let's say you know he'd he'd one in three straight sets Preceded as it had done the first two. What's the ultimate universe? I think I mean John Kerry that loss around for months and I think for Leno. Obviously he started winning majors after that. So that that's the easy explanation for for that change. His career people knew that he wasn't a choker anymore. But I also think Jon Out. I'll tell you this conversation that John had that night with Patrick. They've went out with his younger brother. They went out to have a bunch of Beers after that match and Patrick said to John of the younger brother is going to try to say to an older brother champion. Patrick said don't worry they'll be. They'll be more chances which sounds like a pretty safe sensitive thing to say and John. Looked at Patrick and said no there. Won't that was my chains. That was my chance by. John knew that that was always going to be the hardest one for him doing. Oh I mean the the major one for you US Open. Three Wimbledon say ron faster surfaces. They rewarded his kind of play. Dach- so of course he went on and one more majors but he never got close to winning in Paris again that Melancholia the described that he experiences in Paris at Roland Garros has that has that eased over the is it has because John has sort of become this. Great avuncular character. You know you know what he's like he's he's like as a very different guy from the man who is trying to win majors back in the day but no he will allow he really admit in. Paris and an telly Catherine. I'll bet it's happened just about every single year that we've been there and I've covered perisher decades now where he will say. I still have a problem with this place. And that's something would he? Would he ever use the C word? Choke yeah I think he will now. Yes yes he will he reluctantly he. Sort of chokes. When he says it no no he look he knows. That's that's why I think that conversation with Patrick is so powerful right. Yeah goodness many well and the thing is at you know if you watch John play a lot and so many of his matches he'd he'd flubber Bali you know he'd he'd hit a bad shot and you'd you'd grab his own throat and that to me was such a great release valves for him he would grab it like he would admit to everybody in that stadium and watching on TV that he had just choke that shot. I have you seen him do that. You've seen him. I'm sure if you go through his old videos he'll actually grab but then he recovers from it. You know then the next the next five shots he plays were gorgeous but John was a for dismiss it. He got it out of his system by grabbing his own throat but he could not do that against Yvonne. Lendl impairs what. It really sums it up. Doesn't it to hear Mary? Talk about Joe McConnell in those terms and that those business that he went out forward Patrick McEnroe's that the feeling that on one hand logic should tell you that this is the first of many chances in this guy is absolutely in his prime..
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
Ted Robinson: What Does Tennis Look Like When It Returns?
"I talk with Ted Robinson. He has podcast for Youtube. And I said you know what? Let's just talk between ourselves all. Take the audio you take the audio. We could both use it for our own purposes. So this is a fun discussion. You know. Ted Of course from his longtime working tennis on. Nbc USA Tennis Channel often alongside. John McEnroe great friend of the sport. Great broadcaster journalist the sport little backstory about ten years. Ago Ted Rope me into joining him on a segment. We call passing shots for tennis channel. Then Nathan tennis gentle. This essentially is my intro to Tennis on TV. Luckily he covered for my for my amateur habits. We have revised passing shots. Hopefully it's a little better than it was in in two thousand eight or whatever when we debuted this. But this is ted in T- Ten and I are talking here and it's a number of tennis topics. Ted is in northern California. I am hold up on the East Coast. We Talk About Tennis. We asked the question. Does this break benefit anyone? What is tennis? Look like when we return. Is there such a thing normalcy? What is the role of society in a pandemic where we didn't go that far but A lot of fun tennis talk with Ted Robinson and here. We are all right. Let's so we're GONNA try to keep this mayor John. I had the one of those people from the very beginning when the rolling gap. So the ED T. said we're moving. I was my first reaction. Was that's awesome. Somebody is actually taking a proactive step to give something positive. I understand the means. Were not necessarily the best the end though. I think it was well worth it. Yeah I'm Kinda with you. I mean this is one of the four pillars of the sport. And everybody's saying well. There was a breach of etiquette. What about the communication? Could you imagine what would have happened if the F. T. had gone through these channels and asked all of the events that it conflicted with if they might be okay there would be threats of Litigation? There would be board meetings. There would be conference calls. They just said you know what? We're the big dog. We're putting up fifty million dollars in prizemoney. Two hundred fifty six players are going to get fifty grand. If they don't win a point we think the players are gonNA play. Here's our date deal with it and I get it. I don't think this was particularly healthy to tennis in the long term. I understand why people are upset but also I understand from their perspective. They're one of the four biggest events and they've got a right to wield a little bit of power. Well he means we're great we also though. I think we've all been around the French Roland Garros and Fritz Federation enough to know. They NECESSARILY CARE. They just do what they want to understand that that people's feelings of these are extraordinary times. They they do what they do and they do it more so when they have whatever how many hundreds of million dollars of debt service on on a new roof and they do it when they don't have insurance unlike Wimbledon where they don't get any sort of recompense if they don't hold the event I get it I mean we we can talk about Means versus ends and we can talk about process versus outcome. But I understand why did with did. I reminded I say this to you. I think you've read the story for the years. That and it was the early twenty tens I forget which year but Joe Vision. Doll ended up playing the final into Monday. So on Friday of that final weekend it was about six hundred percent chance of rain on Sunday. And you saw that was probably gonna be joking reaching the dollar. Appoint where you thought they could easily take five hours to play so NBC sort of gently a little bit of my father with our great phrase. John McGuinness producer Think about bumping up the star time because they start at three basically three ten I ball which gives you six hours to play five hours a grueling larger fair and maybe WANNA bump it up and started a couple of hours of REC- hits rain delay. No we cannot interfere with lunch so many of the high end sponsors spend any they promote the final day lunch for your day higher very highly successful shafts planks was menus. We do not wrestlers lunch. I always joke that the media Cafeteria Roland. Garros has its paige day and they have a wine steward and they have different chief selection of in your Houston media dieting. Usually being you know you're you're eating soup with their hands in the you know the meadowlands. If the media dining has their own pyeho chef you can only imagine the dining options for the people that have Spent tens of thousands of dollars for the courtside seats but no lunches sacred which is also the review. No this lunches. That's also why they say I can't believe this it's a grand slam. Semifinal in the stands are only half packed those tickets have been sold and those people are on the ground. They just have a fork in one hand in a night and the other and they'll get to the tennis when they finish their last declare and of course. I joke final. They ended up getting burned by the way the Dow Stock Dazzling. It's not play that day but the referee to stop late Dawson. I'm out and in cost everybody in the cost us a lot of money to pay for everybody's flies to change in extra day but across the federation allowed light right to reopen the grounds the next day to two thousand one. Wimbledon I was told was one of the pats at the club. Now getting certainly they can absorb this. There's a million ounce to real the Nicole on Monday with zero revenue coming in to play raft refereed. Amici's explain what's interesting about all this including this whole discussion we've been having about closed-door events where you just hold the events for for TV and not for fans in the stands this has really been an interesting referendum on how much do these events and these leagues Value TV and media. How much do they value sponsors? How much they value common fans. And how much do they value the sweets? And if appeasing the guys who are buying your sweets me more than TV. I I can see why they would renew it the next thing. I mean what's interesting? I this is other rumor so I WANNA informal setting and I hope this won't be used against the the rumor I've heard a few times now. Is that the US Open. A really are hell bent on playing the event this year. They've even look into alternative dates in one of the big holdups is they've got to do right by. Espn AND IS ESPN want the US Open? Deep in the fall when they have all their college football. They've got Monday night football they don't And I think the. Usda has got to figure out. How much do they want to put on this event in how much they willing to do it even if it means pissing off their biggest TV partners you? John that's by next passing shot and the point is you just touched on. I think every sport is going through this. How do we come back? I think it's imperative for chance to come back with competition as soon as they can't sake safely's the obvious caveat here but safely meaning there may not be for a very limited fans but competition. And I'm coming this John Lewis standpoint of players ranked and we can all week each throw a dart and say seventy five hundred below. I know you've already touched on this on. Tv lied about this but those players and by the way there is sorting teams physios trainers administrators the Chiro bars. The administrators of the tourists broadcast entities around the world. All sorts of lamb chops alive. And I stayed. It's imperative for tennis when safe to have competition even if it means competition with limited X. over to play devil's advocate there. I mean I I I agree with you but the one thing I've heard is is the counter to that is look. You're talking about athletes from all over the world from different countries with different health. Standards you're talking about T as you say teams and Physios and journalists and tournaments to have an even if you have a closed door scenario and even if you don't have doubles juniors you're still talking about hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of people walking around the grounds given what we know about these spread rates and given what we know about how many fatalities result from these rates. If they're a thousand people at a major which is a conservative. That's pretty low estimate given their two hundred fifty six players in the May draw a thousand people. You're still probably likely to have a few fatalities Do we do. We risk that it. What do we do for a global sport where Western Europe might be on the man but other parts of the world might be behind? Do we say we're GONNA have the US Open but if you're from India Iran I'm just making up countries but if you're from five countries you can't play. Is that fair to still hold an event L. Rasiah and I think this is what's going on hold is this is my dead and company. Has FOR WITH BILL? Walton took me to see the dead New Year's Eve Senator San Francisco and I think everybody should have to add. Lorries is what I'm saying. I think whenever we come at everybody's GonNa be tested right and you're gonNA have to have a badge. The crucial so. I think that's GonNa be the answer at how this plays out. I'm researcher Techni- Martha but I believe that's how it's going after before you have any competition whether it's domestic or international status everybody's GonNa have to have some badges

"mcenroe" Discussed on View from the Cheap Seats
"Bit of a braggart an official who has not been officially identified well. If you have a problem with it with your identity out into the world said Diamond High School Google swimmer. We used to say this about elastic in the summertime. It's sunny. It's light until like one or two in the morning. How do really ugly people get laid in Alaska? We say people even people like us. Yes how do they get late. How do we get laid? We don't have the cover of darkness. You don't even have a diamond highschool. Simmer did not adhere to National Federation of High Schools Rules stating girls must cover their buttocks and breasts while competing is is that really a rule naked sumer been disqualified from just one of fourteen races. She competed the season. I'm I'm assuming she wore the same suit all the time time. She's a high school kid. I have a high school kid. They grow. Maybe the suit fit in zero and now things are for having people are blossoming and that roadway was working as an official at the mead said the referee who ruled the disqualification so the it grows suit was so far up I could see but cheek touching cheek so it was like a Thong we'll but like as you're swimming. Don't your legs eggs go. You know what I'm saying. Control it road. I said she froze in disbelief when here in the escalation that she and that she didn't notice was an issue with the suit at all so now this is in the judgment of the referee Right Anchorage School districts in state money that the swimmer was wearing the approved school issued suit okay during the race. It is reviewing the incident so now this might be fight back on this woman at back with David Horowitz. The disqualification of -cation appears to stem from a difference of opinion in the interpreted. This is like the nicest way to be like this person's a band you wrong of the rules governing the school swim uniforms immediately after this qualification diamond high school swim coach filed a protest with the official to contest this decision the court her the putsch coaches protests was quickly denied at the meat and we expect the coach which to appeal we intend to gather all the facts around the disqualification so we can accurately address the matter with the take appropriate action to ensure fair equitable as the parent of a kid who has an athlete if I win if my kid one and then some official tried to pull that I would be you would lose your brain. I would lose you. You wouldn't mind at that I I would be in their faiths Lauren Langford now. We're interviewing her a coach at a nearby West at nearby west. I wrote a blog imposed on medium dot com. Why are you running? A blog wasn't meeting DOT COM contacting spirits. No no no medium is a place where you're right. Now is that blog from Alaska's inexcusable swimsuit scandal unfairly polices young girls bodies now. We're getting into this. Oh yeah providing additional details and touching on don't say touching on talking about high school girls bodies on some of the outrage and the decision caused Langford road the swimmer was targeted for the way the suit fit her curvier fuller figured body and she won in your face this officials going down you ready for this. If I need to go up there and have a tar you ready for. I'm ready because they're just more details at keep coming out like bunk but cheek out of a suit she also said there's a racial element.

"Yeah yeah we go down and it's actually gone up in the last couple years and it sparks a debate of as will of course when it's all said and done who is the grass this air and and I. I don't think we can answer that yet because that chapter hasn't been fully written. I mean we'll know in five years. Yeah no we can't interestingly from the Dow finished is number one by the end into this year which has got a significant lead at the moment that it would be because a lot of the players obviously the majors are what most people look at but for the players in for or the you know US purists in my brother included would say you know being number. One at the end of the year is is is most important is just as important so if the Dow finishes this is this year number one in the rankings it will be five years for each of them G's. US finished year number one. How scary is that? That's again shows. It was the over. If you're you know we talk about hall of fame in in in baseball. That's a huge debate. Who's in the hall of fame? Well you have to be the most dominant person in your at your position position for a period of time that you played and what you just stated shows that all three of them could lay claim to that. You know it's all exactly yeah. It's An and now you've got you know who would who would have thought that the Dow would have more. US Open titles then joke a joke if it's considered the greatest hardcore player and you look at his overall record and his wins in Australia you know he's still lives that guy was he. Fetters got a claim to that as well but now the Dallas got more. US Open titles for two three three than than which I never would have predicted that ten years ago he hit a shot an adult where he slid as if he were on clay was a it was a drop shot and he used that sort of lead left foot to slide into a shot and he almost played at like he was on clay it was he you know again. You're seeing him find his moments and learn how to adapt his game even to the hard court surface which again he is the dominant. It's it's amazing to watch. I was excited for how excited I was in this match that you're not watching you know Nadal Federer. You're not watching the doll joke you watching the doll and somebody else and it was that exciting. You had to be pumped opt well. I think that's what got every people everybody you said excited about it because he was somebody new that was able to go toe to toe the him on the biggest stage there is you know in the final of a major at the packed house and The New York crowd GonNa sit in their early third-set like okay like you were just saying all right. I was thinking in my head and then all of a sudden you know the guy steps up and delivers in an epic Matt so I thought it was remarkable and again this show that kind of guts and and heart and obviously the legs strengthen the endurance to be able to do it was was it awesome shot in the arm for ten so at the same time he's still didn't get over the you know and that's kind of what we're all waiting for and what I kind of liked to see guys. I'd like to see somebody do it when those guys is there still in their prime thing okay you know so. It's almost like you know. Do we have to wait two years so when these guys significantly slow down or three years whatever it is I know uh not that I want and Medvedev to win that match I don't I don't really pick favorites but that's the kind of match where you want to see a younger guy. Step up and win and get across the finish line. I'm sure you watched you know your brothers to the fantastic fire nice documentary Ab- about your brother and and Borg and there was a moment when John beat him. I believe it was mentioned the match in Montreal it was like the first time Barak had ever been beaten by a younger player and Dan Right it was it was not a major wasn't a grand slam but it was very significant. You know you talk about just getting beaten by someone in the end. It doesn't even have to happen in a in a grand slam but that was bored Borg at that point said I got to step up and notice yeah. I think that's you know in Medvedev's actually did it'd be joke if it's this summer in Cincinnati and went on to win that title which was his first Masters series events so similar type of event but I think now guys it's actually it's more important to do it. In a major I think Z. Three guys particularly gotten older of course they go to Cincinnati in Canada and the Italian open trying to win but they're not they're not looking at those events with the same singular focus that they used to and that they now save for the major so in some sense. I think it actually GonNa take one of those guys to do that and not not necessarily in the fourth round assistant fasted over federal this year amazing match a great performance an amazing as much yeah but in a final that's kind of what we need as everybody's watching well. Let's let's switch gears and talk about the women's draw and the fact that there are so many new women players that are emerging as great Serena still there. Do you think Serena cause it to me. I'm like there's a hill that she's got overcome that I'm not sure she can overcome. She's been in how many finals the hill that that comes only you can see when you've gone over the big hill and then there's one more little hill at the top which is the well you it? It's been since she had since you had the baby which is just about two years ago now. She's been in four major finals. It's amazing which is amazing itself okay but obviously get over that hill as you describe it had proved that the moment to be insurmountable for a couple of reasons. I believe number one is there is more depth in women's tennis even though they don't they don't at the moment has like another dominant really really good players like Simona Hal up like Angie curve right beating Serena obviously Asaka master in the firepower department. I mean this. This Canadian Gal is something special. She's GonNa be. She's she's an amazing athlete. she moves incredibly well very explosive love. I mean to me she out hit Serena most of those other players that have beaten Serena it recently in the championship matches have done it because they were super consistent instant. They made a lot of balls in Serena. Basically I believe got tight because the occasion means so much sir you want so badly to win number twenty four and to break the record that it's almost she she gets euros you get nervy high nervous. She gets nervous and then when she gets nervous or game drops off considerably. I didn't really feel despite what she said after the match I know it's her emotions talking. You know that wasn't a real Serena. I I and I said this going into the final. Batumi undress gives you probably the only player out there that have Serena plays well. She can still beat her yeah and so maybe maybe you wouldn't say Serena later best okay but to me it was because of what undress ask you brought to the table which is more firepower the ability to take the ball earlier to hit the ball actually bigger particularly off the forehand and move better and obviously oh absolutely no fear whatsoever which is something that you can't teach so the way she handled the moment and the way she's handled the big stage young Canadian Gal and the way she plays the game. was two million sort of taken the women's game to another level. is leads me to believe that if she keeps her wits about her and her head about her stays healthy that she's going to be the next number one that actually a number one that will actually stay there. Yeah I mean you know we've had Bardy Puska Kerber HAL up. I mean Osama tation need them. It's a rotation. There's nobody really that's there. That's an I'm gonNA keep this for a while and this this woman could do it. I she i. I was just amazed at her poise. Even after she won she very very calm like she has the demeanor to not outlet the moment. Get too big for her which I thought was you know you gotTa have that in that that you that you have to have in those moments as as I know you wanNA see has it. I mean there's no doubt that she has it and there's also no doubt to me that she revels in it. You know she enjoys it. She likes being out there. I called a couple of matches earlier in the tournament when she was struggling ugly in a little bit with their game and physically with the heat and humidity and Y'all she'll throw in a double fault and she'll just go right back to the line you know shake your head go right up hidden ace based on the next point and miss a couple of four hands by ten feet and then hit the very next point same shot and played it for a winner so that shows you that she believes in herself and she believes leaves in our game and she's also willing to accept what happens to every tennis player. which is you're gonNA miss a lot of shots? You'RE GONNA miss a lot of shots. You'RE GONNA lose a lot of points and in the end and you know the player you know you might win six more points in a match but that you won the match fairly comfortably so that's that's the thing about tennis that people don't get you know if you if view wouldn't six more points than your opponent you could you could win that Matt six four six four. It's relatively. I'm not gonNA see routine but a straightforward Kinda win and and and when you look look at the overall you're only winning six more points but when you're winning you're winning than when it counts and her demeanor is the type of thing that can allow her to not again again to to be able to brush off mistakes and and it is so mental as we're talking about Serena so much of her game and so much of our inability to win that final is like you said a mental thing so hopefully I will let me let me let me just comment on Serena cause. I got this question a lot about her. You you know well. She went another one. We'll federal when another one and I think they're a little bit different because Federer obviously to me still loves to play tennis. He loves the you know the whole environment of of the tour and he'll play as long as he he thinks he's still got a chance to play remain to be at the highest level. He's not gonNA play if he doesn't think he can get to the second. Go shot to win a major but for example this year you know even though he didn't win one. I'm sure he'll say you know he was swing away at Wimbledon and he he's he's played pretty well all throughout the year that he's happy with how he's done Serena on the other hand you know she's playing to win the major. That's all she's playing for which is a positive but also somewhat of the negative because of her expectations pressure. She's putting on herself now. She hasn't family. It's you know it's not sexist to say it's different for a woman. She wants to have another baby. You know that which I've heard that she does that's GonNa Curtail her from being able to play unlike fetter who multiple kids and still have family we travel with them etc and keep the family around and still play so I think for Serena is she has to have the desire to still do the work off. The court which I think for her is the most important thing now you know. She's not gonNA play probably likely again until the Australian Open. She usually doesn't play much this time and I don't think she needs to play but I think what you need to do. Say do I want to devote the time and Energy A to keep myself fit and focused and ready and do all that's necessary asserted keep her body in shape and then be deal with all the stuff that goes with being Serena when you go to a big tournament right he's Janta Rise up you know the people want demand and attention every time she shows up at the practice scored everybody's cheering so there's that type of pressure which the average player doesn't have to deal with okay and she has to deal with that which is a lot I mean I was staying in the same hotel in New York with ESPN when I was working late night and you know.

How are you sir? I'm I'm doing well just recovering from what was pretty awesome two weeks at the open and back at our McEnroe Tennis Academy here in New York City so back at it with our are young kids but there was a lot of great stuff at this year's. US Open no doubt about it. Let's talk about that. Final Men's final that first of all first of all I loved the way you and your brother and follower covered it just a mate you guys just know when to when to when to give commentary went to just let it it play out I mean. Is there a moment where you kind of look at each other. You're just like all right. Let's let's just let the crowd handle this next like thirty seconds to me. I think you guys are perfect with it. Well thank you. I think that's that's obviously a delicate balancing act because as as I see on my twitter feed all all the time you know people are saying Patrick Shut up you talk too much. Stop talking between during the point but you know we we certainly never tried to talk during the points obviously obviously when you get a match like that or this year's Wimbledon final which was another epic Oh you know when you get to a time when you get to a tie-break you get to a fifth set you you gotTa let the pictures tell the story and you know with the great shots that are our director and our teams get from going on in the court what's going on in the crowd the so we don t the short answer question is no we don't sort of look at each other but I think we all have done it enough to know when to shut up and wanted to not quiet which is great and I think that as someone who works with his brother here there is an understanding that comes with family where you kind of you just sense dance when someone is going to step forward and say something you lay back you guys just do a wonderful job and I want to get that out there but let's talk about the final because there is a moment in this final in the third set where I thought to myself all right. This is over Medvedev is this is over. He's he's at the moment is too big for this kid. I think it was I'd like to two in the third set and then something changed and and I thought and I could sense you guys okay. We gotTA match on our hands right here this. We we have a a men's final right now and the back and forth that happened over the course of the next three sets was because there's a point where I'm like Oh Medvedev with a batter who knows what the pitcher is GonNa throw and there is no way the pitcher is GonNa get by on Mike. How isn't a doll going to get it by this guy? It's just amazing. Well tell you what I mean. There's only one small detail that I disagree with what you just said. I agree with everything including the fact that adapt yeah point in early in the third set actually in the Dow was up a break early in the third set right. I started thinking to myself you know 'cause I hear the argument in a lot of times from people that it should be two out of three sets in some of these in these major matches between even between the man and I started thinking myself you know this is this is kind of one are those matches where that argument might hold some water because this is going to be three and out and it's going to be straightforward so I'm glad I didn't say it on TV. 'cause I was thinking it for a minute yeah because I I I did not see this turning around the one thing I disagree with you on it. I don't really think it was the moment that got to Medvedev. I think it was just the fact that who he was playing. I actually called the match about a month ago when they played against each other in the final at the Rogers Cup which is up in Canada right and the Dall- absolutely abused Medvedeva straight-sets and so I really thought it was more of a map shop issue for Medvedev that the way he was playing you know it just wasn't matching up although he played a lot better in the first two sets and he did in Canada but the fact that he was able to to to slowly turn the tide in that third set and and then what happened in the last two sets was maybe the one of the most remarkable things I've ever seen and I'll tell you why because I felt that Medvedev actually actually was on the cusp of breaking the Dow down physically and the only player I've ever seen do that was Novak Djokovic the only person I've ever seen him break physically obviously there have been players that can beat in the Dow like fedor like you know Del Pozzo when he's hot standby Franken when he's hot yeah but nobody's ever actually worn him down and I think Bev was extremely close to doing that. in that fifth set and that's why you saw so much drama lake because the Dow was like wow this guy's actually challenging me physically which most players don't try to do they just try to out hit in Dall- because they think it's fruitless to try to outrun 'em right and and just the calmness with which I to me I thought we watched Medvedev emerge in this as potentially eventually in the next group of people to take over when the big three decide to end. I don't even know when that's going to be I mean it's just it's unprecedented what we're seeing in in terms of the longevity of the top three players in the men's draw yeah it really is I mean it's quite an era in men's tennis so I I think to your point yes. I believe I mean he's. He's four in the world now. The new rankings come out so he's right there that four Kenny breaks sits a pass has been has been close. team has been closed. Zarar have was three in the world at one point so is beach off a guy who got to the semi easier so Kenny stay there. I believe he can you know. Obviously federal is thirty eight now. joke of it's just thirty two node AL's else thirty three so those two guys I think can certainly continue to compete for majors for the next three to five years depending on how you know physically fit they stay healthy fedor. I think is is obviously more of a question mark as to how much longer he can do it but Medvedev certainly certainly with not only his tennis. IQ which he used to extraordinary lengths to get himself back in that match mixing in the serve and volley using the backhand down the line changing the tempo the pace of the points and obviously showing what you can't see tremendous heart tremendous heart and and ability to dig in and actually medallions to say you know he had to be willing to suffer you know suffer physically during matches to to really push himself south into really be at the top and I think it up he not only in this match but I don't know if you guys saw matchy played with Djokovic in Australia this year he lost in four sets but it was one of those same kind of things for two and a half three sets where he just basically said I'm going to run with you. Novak as long as it takes now he couldn't he couldn't get to the finish line John but he had Djokovic which on his heels in that one too so when you can send that message to those two guys that you think you can outlast them. Physically I'll tell you that's a message that not many people ever have been able to send to them in. He's a decade younger right so I mean you're talking about or see twenty three twenty four years old he's twenty three the end obviously he's GonNa you know in my opinion if he can play the way he played in those from the third set on on against the Dow which is mixing it up more and not just relying on his counterpunch inability which is amazing. I think that will is the next step for him to tickets. He's got the ability ability to step in. Take the ball earlier. Do what I call which the Dallas learn how to do over the years which is cut the cord off better you know not just be six to ten feet behind the baseline as long but actually recognize when you can step into the court because what that does it takes time away from your opponent and at the same time it allows you to play quicker points points more consistently which is part of the reason why in the Dallas still it actually arguably playing the best hardcore Tennessee ever has played at thirty three because he's learned how to be more offensive more often exactly I mean we all know he's probably the best clay player in history. I mean there's just no. I can't even imagine any. There's no doubt about that yeah. He's one twelve French Open so there's if that tournament starts tomorrow he'd be a heavy favourite so that means he tie fedor Petr with you know he's got nine. Teenagers Fetters Got Twenty joke if it's now a sixteen so I mean it's amazing that we're seeing these three guys in this era era. You know you seeing three of the best you know Grand Slam totals in one era. It's incredible how it's spread around between these guys I mean in a way they've pushed each other. No doubt about it to get better and to keep themselves motivated but imagine if you know one of them were playing in the air without the other guts I mean they could be at thirty thirty majors or something so thank goodness they've had each other to push Minnesota divvy them up and no one has been able to break to strangle the the crazy thing is is the last couple of years they've been more dominant than ever because you want to get to their thirties. It goes younger.

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.

US Open 2018: Serena Williams accuses umpire of sexism after outbursts in final
"Yesterday at the US open tennis finals, and it was it was really marred by a controversy of Serena Williams, your winner yesterday was Naomi Asaka of Japan. She made history last night winning her first grand slam event twenty year old and Serena went off like a like a five year old turn a temper tantrum in one impassioned phrase packed. With emotion. Serena says, I don't cheat to win. I'd rather lose than she got a second violation for smashing. Her tennis court racket on the pavement, costing her a point. And after that at one point she sitting on the chair on the sidelines, and she's arguing with the on the buyers, not responding not replying not engaging in that just pissed her off even more and the more she laid into him and the more he didn't reply the more. She just got angry as all get out. And finally, she looks up the empire says you stole a point for me. You're a thief. And that's all took the empire announced that he was finding Serena a full game. And at that point. Serena Williams was spent she was done some major championship. Just like Tiger Woods. Serena Williams plans her year round the US open. She's struggling in this match with an upstart twenty year old she's emotionally charged. And now she's in it with an empire feels that. She feels that he is penalized her for her actions. And she clearly believes it tennis officials have put up with more for male tennis players. Inner one John McEnroe for one MAC used to break tennis, rackets like like, we change underwear sometimes and Serena asked for different officials officials came out they had a heated conversation and one race voice. The when she raised her voice once she said, there are men out here who do a lot worse. And it goes on to say that the empire's finding her because she's a woman she literally said that I'm being fined because I'm a woman because a woman you're gonna take this away from me as she just breaks down and cries, and what's interesting is the fans in the stadium were supporting her they were rallying behind her. She was she was a good good girl last night. Being penalized by the bad guy in the chair now later after the match arenas coach was interviewed on TV and said that he was coaching. His quote was to be honest. I was coaching. I don't think she looked at me. I don't think she looked at me. So she never saw my signals. But I was like one hundred percent of the coaches one hundred percent of the matches. I was coaching today. The US Tennis Association released a statement afterwards saying that the chairs umpire's decision was final and not reviewable just this morning at about twelve thirty. It was announced. Serena Williams will be fine seventeen thousand dollars for violations during her open final yesterday. After after that, she did a press conference. And here's what Serena had to say in at the end of that. You gotta listen to the audio about how the reporters and the room respond. I can't sit here and say I wouldn't say he's a thief because he thought he took a game from me. But I've seen other men. Call other umpires several things and I'm here fighting for women's rights and for women's equality and for all kinds of stuff in for me to say fief in firm to take a game. It made me feel like it was a sexist remark. I mean like how he's never took a game from a man because I said. It blows my mind, but I'm gonna continue to to fight for women into fight for us to have equal coordination. Be able to take her shirt off without getting a fine. Like, this is outrageous. You know? And I just feel like the fact that I have to go through. This is just an example for the next person that has emotions and that want to express themselves, and they want to be a strong woman, and they're going to be allowed to do that. Because today, maybe didn't work out for me. But it's going to work for the next person. And at the end of that as you can hear the reporters starting to clap and gave her applause in the reporters in the room were supportive of Serena. And if you know anything about the world of reporting when you go into that environment and a sports environment you're supposed to stay neutral. You're not allowed to root. You're not allowed to support. You're not allowed to applause one way or another and show whether you support or disagree. That was stunning to me that the reporters in the room would applaud her and support her to really surprise me. So the question I posed to you is was that sexism yesterday was sexism involved because this man in the chair penalized. Serena Williams, did he unfairly penalised her because she's a girl did he unfairly lobby of finder. Her did the Tennessee association do that. I'd love to

Oh, the two different. Meanwhile, let's start last night with the northwestern Wildcats a solid road win in their opener on the road. As I mentioned in the conference at thirty one twenty seven. You saw the game live on ESPN the Wildcats hits nine straight wins and counting and that man software running back Jeremy Larkin hundred forty three yards in two touchdowns. Their defense was great. They picked off the largest into three times and turned all three of those into touch. Late and towards did come back and play a lot in this game, which was remarkable considering tore up his knee bowl game at the very end of December. They really practically until gametime didn't know if he'd play at all and he did played significant. I just watched it for the CUDA ways of Trent. Green knows the good road win for a good north western team. You know what I will take it talking down team, take their good teachers move on number twenty one. Are they good?

They haven't lost a game at a really long time. We place the nowhere for right now. Wait until they play some beer games, more marquee match ups and see if they win. And even if they go undefeated I don't think they're in the playoff. Well, I'm going to they're going to feed it. They want to claim themselves national champ. Again, I'm going to that parade.

"And the reporters has yet the best tennis player in the world period you know why say female we'll because you have two categories mcenroe says one if she played in the men's circuit he's categorising it that she probably about seven hundred he never intended to be a jerk he wasn't there to poke it he wrote that she's the greatest player ever in fact then he goes a step further to be kind and says i think she is so strong mentally that she could beat some players which whether she could or not is a cool thing to say and it shows that mcenroe again is not trying or intending to be controversial click beatty jerky or instigated the reporter like when i worked in local sports is just asking a question why qualified will you qualify because you have a men's u s open in a women's u s open and a women's division of wimbledon and a men's division and wimbledon it's qualified by the very sports yukon has a women's demon immense team there qualifying it john mcenroe doesn't have anything to do with qualifying it it's qualified by legislation the women's world cup players get paid this much and the men's get paid this much i don't think it's sexists that men are paid more 'cause they simply draw more commerce i don't think that's anti women in fact i think you could make an argument that women's tennis of all the sports probably should be paid fairly comparably or more than men's tennis based on certain events so that's my take intent means a lot i don't think mcenroe tried to be a jerk.
