"I W Cheetos yes. We may have taken inspiration. From Andy. Murray Novak Djokovic cheers instagram session last week and we'll be personally choosing who we want to play each stroke or the cool came. I'm really looking forward to this. Because I've I've been thinking a lot about who compla- Waukesha taking inspiration for for Mary jock Fitch. Well I take that. All players could be able to play all sorts in reality. Otherwise it'd be pretty. Incomplete plays however. Yeah we have been putting our thinking caps on during during the lockdown and creating pefect player which in reality might be a nightmare at might be like Frankenstein Frankenstein's monster but we'll say my mind did genuinely go to what would be the worst player for each stroke. Yeah I have made sure. Yeah Yeah I think about that old decide. Yeah before we get on tonight. Let's just quickly address. Some of the Tennessee's has been going on this week and I kind of the biggest thing that has happened was on. Social media was by Roger Federer and any sort of water he just came out on twitter and said Oh I think the role of the ATP and the W. t. A governing body getting together in some sort of merger capacity is a great idea and the thought of tennis. Twitter alight generates a lot of a lot of conversation with players with fans. People have had their own opinions With the overall reaction I think is a positive one. Nothing more people saying yet. That's a great idea. They're all some doubters. There are some naysayers but yeah well we kinda thinking when this news came out because he hasn't said a really did seem to come out of nowhere and I guess I guess the Sin Theme We talk about in Tennessee's the lack of sort of cooperation and teamwork between governing bodies. You know. We have rival competitions and the lack of kind of mixed events and it seems I lost stakeholders are kind of out for themselves as opposed to kind of being united but it seems that kind of see the situation the context of were in the moment and it is providing this kind of perfect platform a full people for stakeholders in tennis like ATP liked wj to come together and who knows explore that sort of combined that sort of combined department could be part of the new normal in in the tennis. Well Yeah I think we're potentially in a long period where it's not going to be. Eddie tennis so now is the time to think. How can we come out of it? Stronger and federal. It was essentially putting the argument that it's better to have one combined stronger unified body that governs professional tennis and then too weak ones and. I think I think he's right personally. I think that now is the time for everything to be more joined up more unified and he wasn't talking necessarily about mixed competitions on the court although I think if you had more mixed vents the tours where you know I probably would have been more mixed was going on which would be great fun mixed up. Oh stay but yeah I mean. I don't even necessarily think the joining together would mean the every tournament hot to be a mixed event because you know some tournaments just taking off the stage host x number of players in a given week but I just think in terms of decision making and prize money and points and that sort of thing. off-season Lengthy. If it's more joined up that's going to be fair for everyone involved and I mean I know a couple of players have to point out you know why should join the ATP is going be any good full for the men essentially Umbrage at women's tennis joining them but I don't see how that would see how joining them together would bring one of them down. Carol says quite very cool about it. Not being a good idea but I. I think that's I I don't think as point particularly I'm I'm all for this merger if it happens yeah because it seems to be the this. Although Federer announced it it did seem the sort of things going on in the background involving some players that this was already kind of taking motions and kind of conversations were already happening and it did feel maybe perhaps the obviously confederate wanted to kind of the word out there almost kind of as I guess out using twitter Zuma's kind of a sound bull but it did feel like perhaps some people may have seen. They miss a kind of almost kind of jumping. The gun in USA sub faked the baby Little longer whilst perhaps it needed to be fleshed out a bit more. I think. Yeah because I think Rafael Rafa came out. Didn't he in Instagram? Like as per our discussion. I'm fully behind this. This united tool. Say there's obviously was stuff going on in discussions on the play accounts before maybe I think vasic posts puzzle is well had his say. I'm saying that maybe this wasn't supposed to be Kind of shed. I don't know but it's obviously good. They already been having these discussions before. corona virus. But how far? They've got with the discussions. I've not sure. Yeah and it's a bit like you know the situation. I kind of liken it to I live in London and the you know the night cheap when the night cheap came in Boris. Yeltsin announced it. The prime minister doused it like six months in advance actually happening and you must jump the gun and it feels like here. Maybe we're jumping a little bit. I think everyone is kind of more or less kind of excited at the prospect or even just to really kind of flirt almost with the idea because it is something that I think. Almost over the decades really is almost. Just become this sort of taboo in the tennis. Well you know. I think we've ever. It's never really been on the call or even being in a discussion point because you just saw that would never ever happen because we're kind of living in the so completely new circumstances you know it's almost kind of open the ways almost as a portal to things. We'd never thought could happen before. Actually you know they could. They could happen and this idea. That kind of tools would be stronger together. as Judy Murray Judy Murray kind of kind of agreed with and gave her approval off. Yeah I just think it's. It's very interesting. I think for me the biggest question is I think it can be done by whether it will be because as we said. There's a lot of key state coders in tennis and without getting too specific. I'm sure there's a lot of complexities that would need to be. You need to be ironed out angled as people in the room to agree on right one one stake in the route. One stake in the ground kind of going forward. I think that is. Oh my stat for me is is the big test yeah I think realities of syllable complicated and probably would take several years. And how much like demand will there be from from the players and from sponsors and the media and tournaments themselves. I mean I think in terms of the mixed ornaments that we have at the moment that generally some of the most the most popular told me habit grand slams in demos Miami Madrid like most of the main tournaments in ten is already mixed which discusses shy that. It's this is a great idea. I think but I'm also I think when the WPA was set up originally billie. Jean King said you know the first episode of the Women Get professional tool together but the next step would be to naturally merge with with the men's tools it was always kind of Paul of a process by which would eventually unite so. It's taken many years later. I Guess Yeah I. I kind of agreed to unlock a point of view. I do I think combined events are the best are the most fun eve. Like the ones on the tour. Just say Kay lie Acapulco for example. I always say it's better when you can go to one event and you see you can see men's tennis and women's tennis. Obviously you know we see that Grand Slam level but it would be great to kind of see that combined approach. I think more on the toy level and if you had the ATP and w take coming together. I think it would be great to kind of get comply more combined events out that because they all say much more fun to. Maybe you know that starts with you. Know taking already exists in adding you know the the women's element into it and now there's been talk about the Labor cop and the fact that you know that is a you know a men's tournament Should become a combined event and I think that I think we kind of we know. I think there's this untapped thirst for more combined events. We saw how popular you know. Hoffman copies we know how popular mixed doubles is. It feels like that could be something that could really be tapped into. If if a merger could take place. I think in a lot of other sports. It's completely set prisoner. I mean officer is in tennis swell but at the moment but day tennis could really be the four on four other sports rosie instead of having ladies golf tour they just have a golf tool and I mean ingolf with go. Why can't women compete directly with the men It's not as physical sports but anyway this isn't you know no historical but I'm just thinking how this could almost lead. The way for the sports and tennis is already kind of led the way in terms of sort of equality between men's and women's sports for some house the option teach potentially go one step further. Say at like a seafood market. Isn't it you guys want? Get Everything Ralph and guy around with a little shops and having case like three paces you could just go to one place and get everything you know. An I pass any proof Gymboree speaking yet to mixed events. Because it's just you can indulge indulge yourself more in everything that has to offer exactly and I'm sure we'll be hearing a lot more about the potential for that to take place you know. I think the as I said these are kind of interesting times throwing up debates that we thought we would never have and yet for us. It's like this is the. This is the Golden Egg. This is the the golden question. If it's going to happen it would happen now. So yeah. Let's wait and see on. Not But some. Let's move on to the main other piece of news for British fans Very quickly is talking about Andy. Murray and the fact that he said that he would be fit to fool the French Open if it goes ahead in September saywhat. Yeah kind of intrigued to see of fans intrigued to see when he was gonna come back onto you know potentially this kind of this kind of Enforced layoff meaning Playing into his favor But yeah interesting to see that. He said that he would play the French French Open. Yeah comes to I think Joe. If it does happen he should play in a kilt. Piquet identify writing up the other day. Wasn't he for his daughters. I think any product on and not did the rounds on social media. He very fast. I'd love I'd love Grand Slam where everyone had to play in lightning dress. That would be interesting. I think what we I think. That's been talked. She this week. The the French Open will be moved back one more week. They've been off by the ATP and WTI. It sounds like they awfully expecting French. Open to go ahead at the very end of September so we shall say right. Let's move on to the main topic for this podcast which this episode even It was yeah are perfect players for the men and women's tools. So we got this idea. From Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray's instagram session. The other week where they went through the different strikes on on you can play on a tennis court so that was serve. Return Forehand backhand volley and then also the mental side of the game in the physical side we game and they basically picked a player that they would want to represent that strike for say myself and Kim have gone away and we thought very hard.

"Tucson lion witch and Fabio Folk. Nina new. These to play is that you would have expected to get to the final and to make even more. Bizarre lavish didn't even drop a set. Didn't drop a set getting their fog. Ni kind of took out in Dall- in in the semifinals and think afterwards he said that was one of if not his worst match was clay court matches in fourteen years. Being on the tool. Say it just shows you that you know they. They can't be beated. He has to pay pretty bobby. It ought to be yeah. It wasn't a good day for but he's he was very respectful interface at deserve to lose. Which Fair Enough? I believe those last year to me. That feels like about three years ago. I didn't know if that was just me I? I was shocked that Shijo year. That's mad but yeah I mean that's what is it was a nice moment for me. 'cause I guess that's the biggest title that he's ever won in his career. You Masters Series event. Say I also monte-carlo it's it's right on the border with Italy. Say this law of Italian fans So it would always felt like playing a home. I think Paulie and Yeah I mean he deserved. It would be a random fine. Oh I don't think it will be dating what anyone could predict. That was going to happen that year. But I mean is one of those folk. Nanny is one of those players that he does have it in his locker because I think when he beat Rafi became only the fourth man to to have three or more victories against Raffarin clay-court. Yes he has. I think at Ball Selena before I think for many an iphone any also be rougher the US Open one is almost verbatim for Rafeh in certain situations. And I noticed actually looking at do son lawyer which is Progress through to that final. He beat your favorite Joe in the first round pick theory is probably was just got beat dominate team. Own Verbiage that I don't say team was playing in Monterey either because obviously base apemen Rafeh coach the right on garrison a couple of weeks. Eight say oversee didn't put the rest of clay court season in disarray. Too much. Yeah it was just as I said. It's very bizarre final. I think one kind of look back on. It's kind of like Fiqh Ni-ni we share you just this guy on his day. We don't know when that day is going to be but that day. He does have the kind of tools in his locker to be someone like Rafael Nadal. On Clay Cool and. I'm sure he may prophetic on that. As something like the Italian Open in Rome but to get one over on you know in Monte Carlo that must have been that must have been such a such good failing in the fact that he was then able to go on and win. The tournament is probably a very special memory for him and and Darrow. Say That might be the biggest tournament. Yeah. He wins in in his career. I think he probably will we. I mean he knows. If they'll I mean I just hate as a monte-carlo twenty twenty one that we can get teeth. Antique is We have a memory. Say That kind of brings us to a place for a trip down memory lane so Joel D do. You have perhaps a favourite moving out of all the ones that we've touched on today. Yes I am going to go for. It was lovely to hear your cases for the rapper. Babies like Jovic running out so the kind of the for me kind of Decima is like that is a massive moment in terms of the history books. But I'm actually going to go for the gas gay federal match in two thousand five as my kind of ultimately and because of the almost because I think of the significance of that match kind of different Pau paths that kind of You gasquet and Nidal too often that tournament you know these were to play is coming up three. The coming up has young citizen. It just shows you in Tennessee. It's kind of. It is a fickle out in it can I? It can go one way or the other but it doesn't always work out like that and I think it's you know. I think that sort of tournament kind of showed us the starting off. That full gasquet Nidal was. You know we've got gasquet arguably reaching the peak of his career so Eliade glory days of thousand five yet for me. I am going to go for the two thousand twelve. Which is the one that I was lucky enough to be of K? It was straightforward final. I think for me that it was an essential win for rapids. Kind of stop that run of matches going against him You know with with Djokovic think that was other day in hindsight I just feel like it had a sort of critical because obviously I just would worried if Novak had beaten referendum day she would know about wasn't ready is best for his best record. Loss set match. Then that would be notes boding well for the rest of the Clay Court sees not yet that number eight so very significant again and yeah I mean I say many RAF amendment suggests or maybe s is hard but I think that was one I at that much so I think personally. That was part of my favorite tennis. Maybe try to list. We could have had list just made up of rough listeners. Less they what do.

"Well came. It hasn't all been serene for Nadal at Monte Carlo and I think the movement not serene that serene this was broken was In two thousand thirteen Novak Djokovic. She was kind of well number. One time ended his eight year winning run at the Monte call him masses beat him in straight sets six two seven six For me as a said it kind of as because of this or that Nepal had had built up. It felt like the Dow Cave Klay. It felt like evacuate stolen his crown because the sort of infants ability. The Nidal had kind of go from Monaco. Carlo I think he was forty. Six consecutive matches one in the tournament. A Novak comes along kind of stops the stops that streak and you takes the crown from him. It was it was a big deal. It was a big moment. You know now dow leasing it Monte Carlo. I it's it's the start of the clay season you know. People are always going to wonder who is he at the peak of his powers. I'm not sure can they can could Novak Djokovic do it. Yeah I agree and I was actually at this final as well say. I was a bit like okay. Had One win you lease so rough a win the before fair enough. Novak and have this one but yeah it was a bit like Oh reference finally lost a Monte Carlo but it has to happen at some point and I think sometimes the thought of is worse than actually is when it happens and yet navy totally deserved to win this matchy. He was the better player and He was just say much more improved on the final from twelve months before and I think at the time. He was also carrying bitcoin injuries. They have done that and not be perhaps physically present as well was very impressive for over. Asli he has gone on to win. Burn Garros and reach several other road and gas finals and he is an exceptional player. So it was probably well-deserved. He won Montreal at some point. Especially at you know he does live in Monte Carlo as well so he feels like I guess it's a home from home for him says a nice moment for him to win. Win Not Setting. Yes yeah I think he was? I think he injured his ankle. Something in a Davis Cup Tie. Serbia before the tournament say was up in the air. I think actually where he was going to play. Which makes it even more incredible that he won the total. I think he lost like his first three matches tournament of Ood went three sets and I think it going into the final. You would have obviously backs in the dollar and the fact that you know. He came away win in straight sets. A I think you can have almost kind of. There's no sort of as no if issues. I feel like you. You would have wanted a ball. You would wanted to see a more kind of a closer final but the fact that you the achievement. I think is what makes us may epic the fact that yeah. He broke the forty. Forty six match winning streak at Monte Carlo. Obviously I think for me. You know you lost monte-carlo what does this mean for the French Apron. You know you think. Oh is he. Is He not going to win? Anything on clay this season but you know he went onto win the fretting. That was yeah. That was the year he played. Farah and the French Open final. What happens Jovovich and not? Just think over the referee semi in that that was it. I remember yet okay. You didn't sort of as much as you remember where you were. I think I was hiding in a copy at work. Checking the live schools in my pain during that semi final say. Yeah but oversee eat a revocation through and one writer Garissa Anyway so it was sort of disastrous. I'm yeah the well the next moment. We'RE GOING TO DISCUSS. As Roma's ten victory at Monte Carlo which it was very very important for the history books because he became the first player in the open era to win the same. Atp EVENT Ten Times Oversee he then went on to complete the Decima. You know ten titles at and also at the French Open so. This final was very straightforward. He played a Albatross Romo which Ramos Vanilla in in the final which You know I think it was. It was hoped it was going to be a rougher. Vavrinec final. I think Stan lost in the Semis Raffles. I came through against David Goffin Which was a match. The is remembered? I guess all the wrong reasons because those kind of a key moment and I think golf on was a break up in the first set and then like the umpire. Cedric Maria. You like basically kind of Abc Took it upon himself. Almost got to be a villain of the piece and point replayed when the Dow was having no qualms about it and essentially golfing went from. I think forty up to three O on and it was just kind of it. Just kind of snowballed from there and it was kind of. I guess kind of the players. The we've been talking about the Dalit Federa- a joke of it. You have come kind of rule nidal jock vitry comes kind of ruled Monte Carlo shelves the other players have kind of made them up but let Decima I mean ten. Titles that is that is a phenomenal. Achievement is something that we you know. It's very is very reckless and to see happen three times in one clay court swing is in is incredible and again. It's it's one of those where I think what makes it. Epic is the the history of the Mo of the achievement not necessarily the match itself because the final was a bit of a blowout. I mean six one. Six three seventy six minutes. That was absolutely no way not going to be losing to las in in the semifinals and sorry in the in the final and I I it was again it was it was. Kinda like this point. The Dow his or back because when you went into that franchise in such great form and I think he had lost lost thirty five games in home. It just shows you that this Casey's an Rafeh backed is invincible. Best K. was extremely Doberman wasn't dot year this thousand and eighteen if I'm if I'm Ryan and was just completely completely. I'm for Undergrad. I think R- Lost Claes in wars to team in Rome but then rather beat team in the final of the French. Open that year. Say Yeah Paul Albert rumour that he only had one thing coming in that Sunday off knee. Monte-carlo would have been allowed to to beat Rafa on that day. Something that would be. That would have just being greedy. Routing Refahs Decima But yes no this was. This was a lovely lovely moment forever or knee historically courts of of Monte Carlo. And yet again just just not ching these titles up like nobody's business but very important numerical. I suppose achievements on this one and that was that was in a game that was in two thousand seventeen on and on the old route on to that to that title amazement. Next maybe not one for British fans is another again match I can recall was Rafeh versus kyle up and in inbound to In roundtable the twenty seventeen months caller again. This was a moment. I think it was epic because I didn't think we realized at the time 'cause Rafic county came through in three sets but like looking back on it and you know this place as Rafeh would eventually have looking back on that match. Edmund really pushed to the limit and you know it went kind of deepen that kind of you kind of left. Wondering how is we're GONNA CRUSH OUT IN MONTE CARLO? Before before the final yeah obviously. Gi Joe Twenty. Call a number of times And Yeah I genuinely thought rougher was going to lease at one point and that was like you know I mean obviously I wanted to call up and say well you know for a fan oversee of call. It was quite nice. Does she play at British players. So you didn't get that very often. I think in the round before kyle had out. She'd taken out Donovan. So I think when I look to the rule before I sort of you know flew out Monte Carlo or whatever obviously oh he's going to face either way am whoever it's going to be and yeah interesting this much rough obey Gold Edmund in the first set. So you thought okay. This is going to be a walk in the park and then Edmund. Just tell you we just thought well. I'm going to gave this now. And you know. His full hand came out. And you know just everyone was kind of like. Oh He's this guy. Oversee got the crowd support because they wanted to match and yeah took the second set seven five and that went into the third and he thought. Oh Gosh like this could genuinely. Gabby the way up you know one. I was thinking but oversee the longest net when told need a raffle started to really just kind of take a up a note and I think break Edmund like the crucial sevens game and from there you know the rest who's GonNa quite straightforward say. But yet for me. This is the match that I think really gave Koyo. She'll of confidence to compete at the top level because say less than a year after this match he was. Let the semifinals via straight. So I think this was kind of solve that build up traces where he was just getting his form. Greg and sharing us actually that he's doing good competitor on clay which is not something we have to say about purchase on Clay Abor. Kyle just shows us he. He's extremely like you know he's a he's a threat. Clay Yeah He. He's a very efficient play over you know. Regardless of what surfaces surfeit surface he plays on and yeah. It was great to see for me. This was the Maxima say. He announced his full had to and I think with someone like Raffarin core. It was. Yeah as you said it kind of his his proving ground and I think the crowd woman is kind of in a state of shock about kind of what you know what was going on and as the Saturday kind of the fact that the Progress I that was a Bagel. You know. I'm sure the crowd would thinking is going to be woken the puck and the classic six love six three victory but no kind of went to three sets and I think it just came out of that kind of came out of nowhere and it was kind of a real kind of result in the loss as a British fan. I was kind of like a was disappointed but at the same time I was like well. He's just taken a saddle. Rafeh monte-carlo that is good to kind of Is a very good result in itself for someone for someone like Carl up and I just wanted to add actually cable today. If you remember what your at this batch was coming to hear some clips achieve a bird interrupted. The third sat like really pivotal. Moment it just kind of like I tried to light shoe off and ate like a ladder of the of the Bayside. It was kind of a lighthearted relief. Yeah what was kind of a? Yeah it was quite tense match. I mean from what I remember. I think that day as well. I'm sure navy tussle with public arena restore some someone. That was a number of good matches that day from what I remember by date. Remember the bird. I love it when a bird interrupts tennis match like Marie Osborne had kitchens. I'll I'll put the. I'll put the moment on on twitter. If any liquor. The bird in question upset the upset. The match yeah. That was certainly another epic moment and our final epic moments actually is one that doesn't really involve rather doesn't involve Federa. Well actually sorry it does involve but not not in the way came you at one. It's some it's fabulous folk. Nanny winning the title in one thousand nine hundred and when he took out. Rafeh Anri in the semi finals. Ep In straight-sets actually and he played Dusan live rich in the final and won six three six four. I think this was epic because I think for meany going into tournament in terrible form think he'd won any one of eight matches The kind of this tournament been of dominated by Spanish players over the years and I think no Italian one since the late nineteen sixty seventy nine hundred seventy S. I think so. It was just kind of great. See kind of like someone else win the title and someone you wouldn't really expect and it I for me. I think it was kind of based fascinating about kind of almost this. Almost kind of the twenty nine thousand nine tournament south was that it was just a very bizarre tournament. Because you had..

"Know on King on top of his And Richard Gasquet this young up and coming Frenchman comedy onto the say. No one really knows a lot about him I think he I think he played the previous year and he sucked in early on. Well he just come through. I think at fifteen he say. Three days earlier he'd breaks heat qualified for that ornaments. I think that was really the first time the world to him so he had a form that he managed to qualify without a set three years earlier but this was a he's big may even yeah eighteen and it was. It didn't really get any occupied team. Really get any better for him. I mean we talk about you. Know Ah saw you never really. I guess a really great win and this is you know in a tournament is have you beaten Federer? Nfl The same event and gasquet had that opportunity. In Monte Carlo Federal then he came up against Nepal in semifinal. Actually was Santa. Break up to Wilson able to kind of plow the by. I don't know if a federal matule tickets to his tickets told him you must have been quite tired guy to court with Rafeh reports. I think for me. Yeah ICAN looking back on kind of gas gays career now It feels like this was. This was probably the best matchy he played in his career meandered more than one of them. I would say I would say say. He had quite a lot of trouble. Closing matches out and eat. Always be one of those players. He wouldn't quite trust across the finish line and I guess at this point in his career he was a bit more fair less than went for an eight year old in the third tie-break he was able to to gave without finish line. But we haven't really seen him since. Then you know at the crunch of of the match the at the end Besam. Yeah not she. Federal did say off the match. He said he didn't know if gasquet would be able to produce kind of the lights out Tennessee. He did still on that day. Say which our guest is true. I guess it hasn't managed to maintain that so the full Ray Go insane and he did it and federal laws which is a big shock at the time and I guess the base is probably the most telling statistic of your kind of casquets career. And how almost kind of plateaued? Before he kind of make a dent on the very patchy loans of the rankings was gas gays kind of head to head against the dial in azoff. Twenty twenty. He's open sixteen against the Dow and two two and eighteen against federal. So I think that speaks about you. Know Yes that. This may was so happy because he went on to achieve. It was kind of like he got so far. Be Each. It just was not a not so of level. Maybe we people were expecting him to get to based off you know based off of this tournament. Yeah no show on trade to know the other match. He beat federal. Because I can't think of off the top of my head but listeners but how she can help us out with this was I think or something like that. Maybe we want to say it was. I'VE INDIAN WELLS WILL CINCINNATI. Be Completely Wrong. Messes up your head. Kp vetere but yeah. There is a kind of a another moment for me. That was really epic just into kind of a match monte-carlo but came obviously you're ratified. You probably got many moments from Monte Carlo. And you're GONNA YOU'RE GONNA. You're argue to me. What what what may view in in in the Dow was was great Fi. Well every year the wattage come on. Now I mean I've I've got a couple but I have to start really with the first time. I think that refer played Federer at Monte Carlo. So this was two thousand six and they paid three. Monte Kali finals in a row actually see referendum. All of them to this was kind of the first Paul of the first final in two thousand six and it was only the second meet on clay actually and it was. This was a pretty pretty place financially in terms of out of three they had it Monte Carlo so it was four set so this time they were still playing five-set most as far as I know exactly when they would it change but we have six two six seven. Six three seven say accept full set tiebreak. So it's almost four long match. Which as she does seem a bit crazy Formosa's final now but yeah it was. It was the second meeting on clay. I think it kind of solidified for me. Rafters dominance a federal on the clay. Because he beats him at Roland Garros in the semi finals the before but I think yes she can beat someone wants to do again is obviously it just again and again and again and then it went on the less chance vetter had of of beating reference lab basically for me as well? You know. This isn't just Rafeh winning and being of great so me eat a federal never has won the Monte Carlo title and this mattress will be the closest he came you know get into the final word and get into four sets of Rafeh and if there was never one to our? He's he's lost all of his finals. He's being in the tournament of C. Three to reference and one to stand a bit later on but Federer's yesterday the Bay Tournament for Federal. I guess it hasn't helped. He's he came up against refereed. Release Finals but I think this is really just showed that you know. I'm sorry federal there. You may still be waiting a while and you lose an awful lot on the tennis court but own clay you all setting the world number one. I guess this match just helped cement not going forwards. This was a time when it felt like literally every final of significance was federal versus Nadal. And I thought I did my research. This baby and I was looking kind of the other clay court finals. They hadn't few. I think kind of a few weeks later in the in the Rome final the had an absolute bond stormer which was again maddow coming out on top in a five hour mini epic five sets seven five in the in the final set tiebreak. Dowell and Gaydos got looking at the g cheap and party. This was the match that Todd bosses fighters for best of five to three sets the year after in Monty Python. It was like a razor set straight-sets rougher than say base age was intimately as ridiculous on the League for girls to Pay Five F. I knew in the mosque is a bad and I. I think they made the right call on that one but yeah. I think these sorts of finals a federal dow went four hours in Monte Carlo. And then they went five hours in Rabia. It was like it just shows you. How a traditional clay court tennis and when you have your really fast combat lighten Adele Light Roger Federer Nicole in the peak of that in the peak of that powers is back in two thousand six. It was never going to be a match that was straightforward and it felt like it had kind of momentum swings you know when you know one one one set and the other one the other side and it really felt like it could have gone either way kind of you know. Even Connor that full set tiebreak. It felt like so far like on a knife on a knife edge to the very very last moments and again it could very easily have gone have gone five. Yeah and I think to be federal erasmo specialist to to kind of beat the number one and half these epic battles at batch isn't come through them. Say Oversee meant a lot to reference never ivory of c shaped occupies their careers and inspired them to both become better player is because I think over that period of time two thousand six two thousand seven two thousand eight. They played yeah and astronomical number of times and it was almost like every week. We were getting treated to this federal battle and at the time. I mean I guess with each passing match. It became more more significant. What we what we were getting but when you look back or anything of that really what was like the Golden Age. I guess of the rivalry because it was just they were playing say frequently a I guess you know. Obviously federal career especially on clay would have been so much. We'll say very different if Rafeh hadn't of been there because you know in recent years he's been skipping the clay court season hasn't nee and was he won garrison two thousand nine but Paul from referee has been his his bogeyman on the clay. And I guess Monte Carlo just kind of demonstrate as well you know. Federal is never won this tournament and most probably would have done. Obviously if he hadn't come up against Raffarin three of these final. Say were yeah. It's And I'm sure that rain final that ding-dong they had will be on that when we come to review a couple of weeks not one as well. But let's let's move to all next paper because again this is one of your have your moments and this is. I GUESS EPIC. Nece to it because because you are actually there for yes probably seems like a bit of a run of the bill match for me this like a personal moment because it was the first time I went to Monte Carlo and it was two thousand twelve and breath for one the ornament played Novak in the final but this time this was kind of the era where nave out was just beating you. Everyone he'd had amazing season in two thousand and eleven is every time he played. Rafeh rapper based in these couldn't get in because I think he'd lost yes. He'd lost his last seven matches against Jovic including the lost three slam finals. So as a fan myself that like looking forward to the final. You've referenced joke which I thought. Oh go she is going to be Jovic again isn't it and I thought well if if African just got one win against him you know and clay like they soupy great like and I just I just thought. Oh you need to like stop. The role needs to kind of end. This this losing streak with navy and I was kind of ood prepared for some really intense like stressful match but it was from it was very serene it was six three six one straight-sets and me and my friends were just sitting there like. Oh we can just celebrate now. It was very enjoyable pleasant afternoon. And it for me. That was the first time I've actually seen rougher win. A title live as well. I of final had been T- with Heyman say it was just a really nice personal moment for me and I always wanted to go to Monte Carlo and if anyone thinking about gang when everything's back up and running and you haven't been then do because it's the most beautiful tournament. I think he could gate kids Stephanie. Right up there and I would happily go to every year. Forget but I think in the match itself it was very run of the mill but I know Jacovic was struggling. I think with some personal issues that were going on at that time. So of course. It certainly wasn't anything a genuine matchup. 'cause Navy was very off a but I think for me it just as a side from being a personal way but I just think rafferty needed this as a confidence boost going into the classes and that year because I think he just be left quite demoralized by nave domination over the last year. Yeah if it felt like if if he was going to break that losing streak was going to happen in Monte-carlo 'cause this was you know this title number eight wasn't it forever. And he had he had now built up this kind of aura that when he played in Monte Carlo Hey was narrowed an invincible and say even when someone is good and as great as Novak Djokovic steps on on the face up against him he would still kind of a on on the Monte Carlo. He would expect to kind of come away You know and win. Say I think that for me is kind of why this is epic is kind of like it it? It stop the raw and yet if almost felt like he needed to it had to happen had to have happened at Monte Kali. Yeah completely agree. And as I said before for Rafeh fans. I'm sure any day. Monte Carlo is is you know you feel like is extra special for him to retain not dominance there and to get to there and yeah I mean it's just oviously Yeah I mean it was just I. I think I mentioned a couple of episodes that I had some clay from the core of Karla. It was this way you got it from. Yeah go into the cool after is a nicer of chee-chen FDA up yeah say yeah. Many many foreign memories from from.

"And and kind of tour events and you know as much as we want to see kind of labor carpet and you know it's it's been great. You know the the additions we've had so far As much as I will not continue. Yeah the there was kind of a time and a place in. Unfortunately it doesn't feel like twenty twenty s is eight time and Boston is not the place for for the Labor Cop and yes they postponed it to September. Twenty twenty one. Interestingly Federa has already committed to playing it so we will be seeing him at the Labor Cup and he will be forty years old. Wow I mean he's going to have to do an awful. Lo as a as a as an ode bad isn't he if he wants to win the Olympics and winning Wimbledon things the Labor up? But you know he's proved wrong safer in many ways. So why no. It's just adding to his his challenger motivation. I suppose and yeah as you say I think with Ted. This is because it's such a boost for isn't it and the tour say worldwide probably arguably the sport is most affected by corona virus. It is not played just within one nation. So perhaps we'll see national tennis circuit. Start up again. Countries are able to do that so players. What beyonce just play like? I don't know a German circe or something for food. Jabeen plays all South Korean second. I'm just trying to think of countries Handling this situation a lot better than others I think for label tool like Tennessee. Justice is so heavily. Impacted as as a pasted. Perhaps other sports but yeah anyway Joe. Let's move on because we're going to be talking back through sort of taking a trip down memory lane like we did with the Miami Masters this weekend it would have been the Monte Carlo final today. We're recording this. So we thought we'd look back on some of the most I guess groundbreaking or imported Monte Carlo. Maimon Save for the last few minutes kid pick movements Yeah Yeah Yeah. We did this year with Miami. Said he listed. See I wanNA take a trip down memory lane with the Miami mosses if you scroll back On the on the podcast you'll be able to find that episode but yet today we'll be looking at some of our favorite most epic moments from monte-carlo now came in research this way. I've tried to tried to incorporate that have included Nadal. It just feels. It just feels like every baby everybody we could talk about some sort of connection or leg Doubt because it is his tournament Federer Has Holler. Dow Has Monte-carlo. This is. This is how this is how in my won't call a his shake shit shaped itself over the last sort of over the last decade or so. Yeah Compete agree. I mean as a big rectified myself. for me win just two tournaments in one year than I so for me in my mind. It's always Roland Garros and Monte-carlo because they all like his homes thing where he feels most comfortable you know in the clay and overseas won. An awful of boss Lane isn't rains but these two especially all the ones that stand out. So yeah it's very hard to avoid Avoid Rafeh Summary of of stuff this week and and of course monte-carlo this is the star of the European classes and this is the first big clay court tournament Masa series level. You know we've Madrid and then rhyme farther down the line so this is kind of a really important for all players kind of important tournament to kind of get off you know on the on the best possible in the European clay swing and so yeah. Let's let's talk three some of the what we think. There's some of the most epic moments from Monte. Carlo is recent history and I guess the kind of thirst Maimon we have to kind of talk about is of course. Raf on the Dow his first monte-carlo title. Of course he's won. A Lot said spits yet. He won his first title so in two thousand five exactly kind of fifteen years ago. I think Of a today or yesterday he was eighteen years old He faced Gamay Korea in the final. Actually and this was back at a time when they matches over kind of five sets and yeah he came out. In enforcer six three six one love six seven five which you don't you don't see very often di Natale bagels. I'm on a clay cor. Say I feel like that school nurse called B. What makes his bachelor's fascinating is the fact that yeah the Dow the Dow did lose six love but I think I think the biggest point for me here is that you know. This was almost kind of a this moment. This final was kind of a passing of the torch between you two great clay-courters and Gloria I think arguably for kind of few seasons. Yeah I think the the before he got to the French Open Final. You know he was kind of like the the king of clay pre now and this match for me almost kind of was that moment way changed from couriers the King of clay actually Nidal's hair and he's ready to take a ready to take over that mantle. Yeah I mean if any we knew like often needed after rough is I want to get any water. That time could think Oh Weena Louisiana's later he would be deeded. Wadden the twelve hundred hours eleven Montreal as for example it just would have been unthinkable at the time. Yeah Oh say what's interesting? We discuss this on Miami episode a couple of weeks back but in a rough ahead come just recently come out of the Miami final against federal and Rafa had been like two sets to love up against federal. He'd been four in the third set in that match before federal came back to within five. So I think this sort of Bagel in the third set this Walpole that rough ahead against Korea in the Montreal. If I know I guess there was something in his mind thinking. Oh am I going to like check again from Jeez? That's the most as Fino is it? Is it going to happen again? And I think he said afterwards that the match with already helped him in in in this final because he was just made sure not to lease focus and let the lead slip so I think like that was it. Just showed his. He was growing from every single match in every kind of new experience. He was having these. The gang deepen these mosses offense but just eighteen years of age and obviously that year verdict cowers turns up and say this is a good portent of what was to come eat eh without six weeks later or say also fascinating about these new dot com coming onto the scene in and winning. These two is the fact that it wasn't like he had like a few seasons and it was making the second round third round kind of getting to grips with the tournaments. And then and then kind of making the leap. It was caught doing this straight off the bat at eight hundred year old just going into the tournament and and winning it and this is something you don't you don't hear about really particularly on that scale you know a kind of a master's level and against players like yeah gamma cars. Who said he was? He was the king of clay and kind of watching some of the clips of an unusual cheap and classic sort of baseline baseline to baseline matchup. And you can kind of say how that kind of both of them had those qualities that you could see why they were kind of cool with the King of clay. I it just kind of felt that in the Dow was going to be the king. Yeah definitely I mean it's just. He is untouchable. I like to go on. I mean at least you know. Obviously he hasn't won. Every single matches ever played on clay. People have beaten him on clay. Of course Some of which. We'll talk about shortly but yeah. I mean monte-carlo at the two together perfect combination in my in my eyes but Joe Interesting federal at this time was was of sea world number wadden very very dominant very few rivals on the tool. Adam de on next movement is is she. What happened federal at this tournament in two thousand and five because he is? He hadn't progressed very far in this tournament because he lost to a a young up and coming Frenchman. Reshad gasquet gas gay. Which was I remember? I remember watching this match from my from my living room on the TV and it was just such A. It was such a breath of fresh air. You know this this Guy Richard gasquet. He has done. He's done some things in his crib but when he kind of came onto the scene. Seeing that single handed backhand for the first time it was such a just a such a sight to behold to cut of thought it was just so memorable the way that match finished he won the third set tiebreak ten ten and he. He won with a backhand down the line. And if that is a quintessential way for Richard Gasquet to kind of finish to match. I don't yeah that matches. It was quite an epic. Wasn't it could get a go to either way and we saw coming from both players and I mean gasquet. Yeah it was always you know he was in the same generations Ruffini. They were both eighteen. So actually this told me it was pretty important because they base kind of came onto the scene and we go to see so if maybe the future of tennis was going to be like suddenly federal had rivals and it's interesting because see Russia's career went one way and gasquet is kind of didn't quite get that I mean. He did have a lot of pressure on him from the French. Press especially lauded him to be the next thing and I think he ever quite managed to do. I mean I agree. I think it's I think after this tournament I think you know the the press. The tennis media were speculating. Hey needling gasquet of of we are watching you. The future number one and number two players on the tour and I it was kind of light. Yes yes for one person. Not so much for the other but That's kind of take away from this moment and the fact the federal this season I think he went something like it was something like eighty one and four or something is reckless losses. Were very few and far between and I think that's kind of what made this movement say APP. It was the fact that here. We Harry is wild number. One you know on King on top of his And Richard Gasquet this young up and coming Frenchman comedy onto the say..

"We're going to be taking you through some of our favorite moments from Monte Carlo. On what would have been finals day at the Monte Carlo Country Club elsewhere will bring you some of the big talking points. Coming from Andy. Murray and Novak Djokovic instagram session. This was an update from the tennis. Well this week including the postponement of the Labor Cup but Kim first. Let's start with Murray Novak Chat Friday evening had a long week at work and it was a very pleasant and nice way to kind of start the weekend. It was a conversation. I think that they had admitted they had no actually. Despite having these rivalry kind of gone for so long they never actually sat down. Had a chat with each other. So it's really pleasant kind of have that moment almost kind of be able to share it with the yeah. It was nice. Isn't it just them is kind of mates. I suppose just having a chat and that means Joe. They were clearly listening to fashion episode causing show that we did last week because the conversation turned at what point stand. Mann's excellent shorts that he won railing. Garo swift say clearly. They had tennis fashionable Nemo. And like we had I thought was funny because Jovic said if SAM was watching he should burn they shorts And I think she was watching because he did like At one point in the essay they show it during the right and guarantees e Mont. They say he called exactly. Yeah but maybe he's got a spare pair at home. I did love the fact that other tennis players joined didn't as well as kind of your general fans as well and it was kind of great to see some of those responses for some of the topics of up light stands short. I think curiosities Sleeve Kobe. Bryant tattoos was brought up as well say it was great to see you the kind of everyone kind of getting together and having a little bit lobe. Ever sit down because as you said. It's like you know these guys that you know. Generally speaking when we see them together is a head to head. It's a competitive environment and it's nice to have made like this. Where is a level playing field and just kind of talking as mates and I think some of the I think one of the big talker boys are one of the things they were discussing? Was that perfect. Tennis player. Agai through different sort of aspects of a tennis player. And saying who who they would like I found the most interesting thing was what they were talking about. Back cads returns of Sunday said they would prefer each other's each of his back. How does over time himself? Which I thought was quite interesting. Well I am being humble respect. Fourteen each other or was that the rule. They just couldn't take themselves so therefore oversee he would pick the the the wouldn't because they generally speaking I would say they are the best return for example. I was surprised. Jovic didn't pick rough maybe physical as well as mental. I thought maybe he was trying to like spread his His pigs around today. I'm I'm not sure but Pretty much agreed with all of their old of that picks picks along the line. But Yeah I mean. It's nice as well just to see them like eating because these guys. Yeah we we see them competing against each other. The end of the day the players get on say well the friends of each other and they must be missing that kind of camaraderie of being on the tour as well right now so. It's nice to do something like this isn't it and the fans can join in and and get as well exactly. Maybe maybe we'll do a future episode on talking about how we would build and structure our perfect tennis players. But that's just kind of give a listeners. Feeding catch it the the run through of what they they fought was that kind of perfect tone. Spy Say Novak Djokovic serve was either it was kind of between John is ner nick carry US return. Murray four hundred went for the Dow poetry full hand with a backhand Murray Volley Federal Man Tuna Dow and then physical yet domain Tame Strike David Farrar. An- Andy Murray Chose for his. I mean no surprises. He kind of went for seven. Apothecary else is now return. Novak Djokovic forehand rough on the Dow back can Djokovic Volley Federal Mental Nadeau Physical Jakovich. Maybe we should do. Yeah maybe we'll do an episode construct. All perfect I thought the one thing just looking at one other things maybe interests me is the Jakovich for his forehand shows. Really flat four hundred we've portray whereas Murray of C. Wet for the Dow's complete off the the massive credit four top speed and You know high. The showed is thought to be interesting. They chose different different approaches for different shots. I'm really surprised that she didn't pick carriers for you. Know his mental attitude. I mean a car. No match and why. They wouldn't have picked him for that. But maybe maybe they went for his his underarms. Maybe referencing that but yeah anyway in Albany Joe as slightly more serious thing is pays ad. It's come out but there are plans to play a relief fund fula ranked class. You're going to struggling a lot financially. current current time so jovic revealed on Friday that the plans for that player. Relief Fund would generate moving full million dollars. But the way they're going to do it will that outlining how they would do it. Is that everyone in the top hundred singles twenty doubles which country based on their ranking? Say for example those players in the top five would donate thirty thousand dollars each and then kind of below down the rankings. You go the less you would need donate into the prize ports. Not Too sure I mean I think is a great idea passing. They obviously is a lot of talk saying players shouldn't have to be helping out all the players like it's about. Atp tool they should be doing this. It shouldn't be a problem the players themselves to have to do this. But I think it's really nice initiative and I think the top players do have some responsibility to initiate something like this. Yeah I think it's it's an interesting one. I think it's a good place to saw. Obviously it's the intent. Is that to kind of help in that. Coastal of collective spirit. That kind of we're all in this. You know the the top players of their own initiatives kind of going on as well And Yeah it's very interesting. I feel like this is going to be a big is going to be a big talking point. It could open up a lot of. It is a kind of worms. I think a lot of people are going to have their own opinions and already kind of those opinions A different is like how great it should be on a sliding scale of of ranking or should it be something it should be something else. Is it Fatou on ranking? I think is one of the biggest kind of conversations and I think kind of doing something like this kind of highlights. The you know that wetness. The players ranked lower down need financial support. But you know. Is there an argument to say? Well you know how we got into a situation where we've needed a global you know global pathetic figures passive as the corona virus to to make to make something like this happen. Yeah I agree because eat at this. I mean how long term will make everyone take a more serious look at the pay structure with antennas? I know it's been on the agenda for a couple of years but hopefully this'll be kind of like the final push to actually make it much equitable. I mean the issue with this sliding scale was the the amount that they're sort of saying should be pushing Like ranking its way is to disproportionate. Say someone who's to one hundred in the world is actually going to be doing much. Larger percentage of their income than say joke rich in federal at the top of the game so therefore maybe it should be done. Just how much you could actually afford to give Or if you're going to do ranking perhaps what would be fair is to do on like ranking. That would be from the last couple of years. Like an equalized average ranking because a lot of players like for example Dan Evans. He's just going into the top thirty. He's just go back. He's not going to have an awful lot of money from top tournaments that he would be like Able to access at that ranking like. It's all very new to him. So as conversely other place he would be in the top one hundred and then maybe a much lower at the moment because of injury but yet they would have a much more financial capacity to give a bit more or to treat this. Obviously no system is perfect. It's like a new idea. They're going to have to. I guess. Run three these issues but the inspire. The idea is very nice but I think perhaps they just need to kind of streamline and make kind of sense of some of these inconsistencies are going on. Yeah I think as you said I think conversely people like Jack Circle people who've gone on the rankings. He had to get have had. That had that moment and made a lot of money. Jacksonville finals power. Small says etcetera. It doesn't feel like he would benefit that much. For this sort of your relief fund this kind of Aimed at plays. We'll have similar rankings. Maybe around him. I think it's kind of like this. Does this effort from the players but I think also needs to be from the tournaments as well And it will be interesting to see you know. I told him it's like you know Wimbledon for example whether the prize money whether they still kind of look to distribute that to players on notice spin some sort of chatter and some talk about you know first round prize money being distributed to make sure the players. Because I think if you if you don't support these players farther down we might get into a situation where they might be more vulnerable than ever say of them. Kinda going down roots of match fixing and betting which we know that kind of tennis has a history wave when you know we will not repeat itself but this might be. This feels like a moment. Where if we don't do something? It might lead players to yet. It's kind of desperate desperate. Meshes Yeah and how many are going to be able to stop again? When when they're allowed to you know there's a lot of investments and expenditure that go into just traveling the tool so some players might just find that they they just cannot afford to stop again. Say Yeah I mean I think they're all various other schemes. Think the WGN for someone has a loan scheme going on but in reality I think the criteria for as she being able to get financial help. You know isn't kind of what they say. If that makes sense it's you have to meet certain criteria and it's audit and I think this is. This is a step in the right direction. So that's a positive thing. We'll read bit as much positive news this weekend right now. I suppose one other thing Joe. That's been announced this week In relation to make arenavirus is the Labor Cup has been postponed to twenty twenty one so not a big surprise is just the latest in series of events. Go oversee this is an exhibition. So it's certainly not as Important as for example the slams and it was going to coincide with the newly scheduled French shape and so I guess it's just for the best now that Labor has decided to kind of delay For Year yes. That's still a pall of became a just. I think there's going to be any bladders played this season. But let's say Fidel there is a as as you said. I think he is completely a completely makes sense. The you know the priority is given to Grand Slams.
"murray novak" Discussed on Yeah, We Said It
"You'RE GONNA hate me for this one but I put it down. Two thousand isn't twelve Wimbledon round to Rossall defeating offer. That was disgusting Kay We're going to move on. I'm not going to elaborate Tanaz and eleven French Open the semi finals Federer over Novak. That in my opinion was the match that year Fed that we had to do because we would have been talking about Novak Slam year otherwise hoof to Gut And then twenty seventeen Australia in semifinals. Donald Rafa defeating Dimitrov. Either guy could win. That man was very very high quality right to the end and then I have two honorable. Mentions these are actually. We both Davis Cup matches to sixteen Davis Cup. Semifinals Murray over delco very high quality. And then the Tuna Sixteen Daves go final dapo defeating Chile. J- Those are two very very very very very good matches from the dudes and that's my or list we got. We got to be that match on this one as well. I have Jovic thirteen semi's Nine seven and that one that mass was high quality high drama. It was everything I will. Never forget that net touch it was yes it was a moment. So behold I joke was over in the Dallas during twenty flow. That Matt's lasted forever. Even though it was on you know quote unquote only seven five in the fifth. It was very long and Ross definitely should have won that missed or hand in that. That said that's just I replayed over and over and over. Oh it it still haunts me. Both those guys like cramping up during the trophy ceremony. Big Eight from chair so he kasit down was it wasn't saying they were they. Were battling it battling out air hard that that night Jovic over Dow Wimbledon twenty eighteen. Ten eight in the that one high quality should win that as well I have a stand over sixty five mental twenty nineteen eight eight six in the fifth. That was that was antastic match. Of course I was losing my mind for Steph but you know I was. I was happy for stand to no finally pulled that out in May to another flame. Quarter have Jovic overstaying strain twenty thirteen twelve all ten in the fifth Jovic over Federal Wimbledon twenty fourteen the Dow over Dmitrov Australian Open twenty seventeen And I- job is over Tokyo. Two thousand thirteen than match was phenomenal right. I was losing my mind. DOCO that day and he did he did get it done. But it was very high quality tennis very high quality of so Then I have no doubt over Del Pobre twenty eighteen. That match was also very good. Always find yourself in. The conversation hopefully can come back and get back every time he's out he makes it back to the top take top ten. Hopefully he's been hitting only on clay but he's been hitting so hopefully he he comes back can get back to top form in Dili does best. Yes I have a Nishikori of around at. US Open twenty fourteen matches like the latest finish in us. Open history that mess over like four. Am or something like that. It was very late I have guessed gay over Stand Wimbledon Twenty fifteen that was eleven nine in the fifth. I think s when WanNa make the semi's that you were here was a twenty fifty semi. Oh you do my God and I have a job. It's over. Murray Australian Open Twenty twelve seventy five in the fifth. Civilised somebody at us on twitter and tell us how many of those matches did not include the big three they say for the record. We told ourselves we were only going to do slam slam matches his for anybody says Oh you missed this Miami match or whatever and ain't nobody got half antibiotic outside of that we're going through the the whole decade like that. We're just going to go too much. You know we don't We have late lives jobs. Shit yeah well I guess onto the rivalries of the decade back. I don't have many Them Man I have Rafa and Novak and Ah yes probably my top robbery of the decade. They've played countless number of times in the head. The head is pretty close. Is Twenty eight to twenty six in favor of Novak. That's a lot of matches and most of them in this decade. It's crazy awesome other ones. I Have Roger Novak. 'cause they played quite a few times in this decade. Most of the match have gone to Novak back but even still They played a lot and they played in quite a few slam finals to especially in the last five years. Or so I put down Stan in Novak Only because Stan knows how to beat Novak in important moments and he's done it a few times some of them down and then I put down Murray Novak because They played a lot especially in Australia again. Novak has come at the top of all these last three that I said but they played a lot so but basically just Rafa Novak. That's that's the robbery of the decade right there. Yup I got for my man robberies I have a Nissan joke. Which of course and Jovic in Murray care you know job as Murray played God knows how many times this decade most of them. I feel like the Dame Australian Open but Yeah they they they put some good matches this a similar plans and sometimes they're matched up to watch but You know they played a lot. Nothing that's one. That's been one of the key robberies zone of the decade and of course everything you said about vacuum Rafeh right on the women's side I have Serena Viga. Viga has still only beaten Serena. What three or four times? Three four. Four Yep K okay The last time was twenty sixteen Indian Wells but I don't know she brings. Good tennis out of SERENA INDUSTRY WAKES UP SERENA's game a lot of times Because she's so good off the ground and she doesn't necessarily Bring everything that Serena brings but she throws a lot of whispering brings back at her. I'll say And she does it very well They played some very high quality matches in this decade and they play quite a lot in like twenty eleven to twenty fourteen period. Played a lot more asu. Muslims came in this decade I think the only played four times in the two thousand and the rest of it. Oh eight Australia on nine. Austrailia nine Miami on nine Wimbledon Yep four times Also have Venus Kava on here. It's pretty much always going to three sets with may play it's probably going to be high quality And they match up. I think very well against each other. It's it's good tennis They haven't played that much. I don't think but at the same time when they do play it's going going to be a cracker. You know And then I put Serena Hall on here which is painful to. Yeah but I did it anyway Most of their matches outside of the immeasurable one this year. are pretty predictable. It's going to be Serena winning the first set and then turning into a whole bundle of nerves in the second and letting Mona Hit forehand lion like she does another come in and then she loses the second set and then it's a close third. It's just the way their matches go Yup that I have a basically the same robbers except for didn't put us at an even bigger and being over of incompatible that was that was like the first one that I wrote down because their matches are. It's there's not just that there are three sets their quality matches every single time. They they bring out the best in each other for whatever reason but it's always very entertaining to watch their most recent being this year in Indian Wells Venus coming through grew six hundred thirty net. One No business when they match I mean honestly name a better fighter name better competitor. Yeah that's the that's the decade or over damn decade. We are now in the twenties the new twenty s Jesus in my mind. I'm still at that stage. Where like the upcoming players in Ireland the same age like So it's a little bit tough to handle. Wow Yeah it's been in a very very interesting AK at least nothing like this. I think the next big game is going to be going to the one that wanted to really watch closely. I'm still not sure where the where the women are going and how things are going to you. I know fall into place for them in the next ten years but I think for the man Six passing team. I think that's going to be the next. I big head to head. I see them playing a lot over the next several years how does dominate twenty forest fire. I won't say he's twenty. Five zero will be thrown thrown in that mix to eventually you know he'll get it together and start making deep in these these big events and I think he'll he'll get but he's still very young but Hopefully hopefully next year he starts. You're in Tuenup Bill. On at least how he ended this year. You know making a semi that eighteen finals because this year has been pretty pretty pretty crazy poor from him. I'm interested just to see how they do in amendment two in Australia because is I think it's a really good time bright now if they can take advantage of Nevada's not at his healthiest stories. Best I You know main problem in Australia. Australia would be a a perfect time for them to make a real move. We'll see. I was winning hoping anyway. So did a hammer andy. Murray Andy Murray wouldn't that be fantastic. No other options are available. I will show out if any Americans say he deserves while we don't say he deserves because because he has one win but I mean it'd be great for him to win an Australian Open title after these finals lost there. So we'll see eh I would. I would like to see him win. More though at least saying and I have to say I'm a little bit. You're not gonNA like this but I'm a little bitter about Rafa you're ending world number one I am not Nola Fam- clearly but I wanted him to year in number one because I want him to get all those weeks added on so that way. He can very easily passed. Rogers tally next year for weeks at number one. I mean it's probably going to happened anyway.

"Liberal body looking back to another episode of the PODCAST. I'm your host Michael and you will be going over the Paris Masters as well as talking about the WPA finals so to the news and set one. We don't have a lot obviously. Look at the end of the year There really isn't a whole lot to talk about right now but there are a few items number one courses. The fact that Novak Djokovic defeated Denisova love six four to win the Paris Masters Massive win for Novak Djokovic. Obviously he's won this title before and he really while he really raised The heat on those backside when it comes to the year end ranking which the rothe fighting for And we'll get to that later because obviously the doll played a part in the Paris Masters But it didn't come to the result that he probably wanted We'll get to that However Nidal returns as world number one for the eighth time in his career. Despite the fact that Novak Djokovic won the Paris Masters Nidal ended up is number one so that of course is a big deal but it could be short-lived and once we get to the end of the year once we get to the ATP Finals. Both players are going to be fighting for that. Uranium one can be similar to the way that Andy Murray. Novak fought for that year end number. One I believe was two thousand and sixteen Yeah they got to the to the end of the year and in really it just. It came down to that finals match and Indie wanted and secured the world at or the number one ranking for the end of the year So the WTA actually Bardy defeated Alina. Selena six four six three win the Shiseido the bt finals in Shenzhen and a little bit of sad news Actually let me stay. Take a step back Ashley Barty winning this. Of course really caps off what has been a really great year for obviously winning the French Open. Winning First Grand Slam was it was huge but she won multiple titles throughout the year She had a bit of a dip in form there after the French. Open win but she really has rebounded in the back. End in the Asian. Swing Her last several events have been either winds or a deep runs should the shit some final final in title so a big deal and winning. This is a massive for a number of reasons. One of course the prize money is huge But the biggest thing is you win. What is considered to be just a notch? Below the Grand Slams in terms of prestige is winning the year end. Trophy here So it's a big deal in his great went for her. She has been best player all year. I mean Bianca Andrea skew obviously can make a claim but Bianca also missed a a number of months there in the middle of the year. So we don't know what would have happened with her. If she'd been healthy may be. Maybe she wins. Cranston lamb or or. Maybe she doesn't maybe she loses Maybe that that That lost that she spent so many months Not having not not receiving loss Would have happened in early point in the calendar. She didn't lose A match from February until like a week ago right so I mean I. It's it's a great. It's a great down walk. She has two weeks ago. It's a it's a great run for her. But you missed like four months or so that the big deal and Meanwhile actually already has been playing fantastic tennis all year. And she's been probably the best player from January until now Just been very consistent. Excellent overall has a fantastic game and she made the final. She played a game player in Selena. So it's big deal and it's great and I'm glad that she won because actually Bardy She's got a wonderful game. It's very versatile She's got you know some pretty big weapons overall but it's variety is the big Weapon I think the biggest weapon for her is the fact that you can do so many things on the court that It's hard for players just simply attack her an attack. One thing it's not like she has an overriding weakness. And you can go after it that she makes mistakes and she bit streaky. At times for instance in the final here her her forehand just went away. Mid Match but Overall she is the best player on tour and winning this kind of Simmons that all right and then the to the sad news. I was getting ready to talk about. Kim Clijsters her comeback attempt at thirty six years old has been delayed due to a knee injury. Now it's disappointing but I'm not surprised and the reason is that Number One Kim is thirty six years old and You know as you age as an athlete ages the injuries can mount. And you just get injured easier. You don't heal as quickly. Your body isn't quite as resilient as it was back when you were in your teens in in your twenties and then the second part of that is look. I'm sure Kim still hits the Court or did hit the court from time to time since retirement and twenty twelve. But let's be honest. She wasn't out there Training and hitting in the way that you would need to if you're going to play on the tour and when you really training properly to be on the on the tour and you want to compete at the highest level with the possibility of lifting one of the biggest trophies you have to train it away and that really taxes your body and when you haven't done that for a number of years and then you just kind of come back and you. You begin training properly again. You're going to be you know a training muscles and activating in stressing muscles that haven't been stressed in That way in a long time no. I'm sure that her trainers and her nutritionists in her role team is fantastic. I I'm not trying to say that they've done something wrong because I'm sure they haven't. It's just a fact that you're stressing muscles that haven't been stressing long time in this way. And given that plus the fact that she is older in terms of tennis players career being thirty five. Thirty six The idea that player would coming back from you. Know retirement at thirty five or thirty six years old. Whether on the men or women side ten fifteen years ago was laughable but these days. It's not that big of a deal. A lot of men's players are going into their thirties in the mid thirties and in federal case late thirties. So it's not Stock used to be the attrition. Mr Much better people players take care of their bodies in a way that they didn't quite as well go back in time and players Yeah I mean there were great athletes in. They took care of themselves. But maybe they weren't quite as strict about their diet and It's much more regimented now. Think with Kim. I just think she looks. She hurt herself in a lot. 'cause I'm not living blame on anybody. It's not anybody's fault but I'm just saying that it not totally surprised by it. I just think that Her body It's it's just it's going to be more prone to injury as A lot of tennis players are in their thirties. Despite the years in between an Emmy mcquaid so much punishment to her body physically from the the tennis but still she's played since she was you know in her mid teens. It takes a lot out of you so anyway it. It's a sad thing to hear obviously snuck him. You're playing January they're gonNA have to push that back She's rehabbing now So when that's going to happen no idea it could be Indian Wells and Miami. It could be later. We're going to have to wait and see into more information out can only speculate. You know when that's going to happen But yeah I would say Just throwing out a guest there. I'm thinking Indian walls for Miami maybe But I don't know that we're GONNA get her before that It's not in January. Might not be until one of those big masters events that she comes back. But we'll wait and see who knows could be earlier But I don't think it's going to be the Australian Open all right. Let's move on to set to in. This is going to be our Rolex Paris Masters Review so Obviously this is the the last chance for players to really grab one of the Masters One thousand titles. Nidal came into this tournament with high hopes of Djokovic. Obviously high hopes as well. He's one here before Both players they had a lot of pressure but they're both looking forward to it and there's a lot riding on this. This title of Nidal had made the final or or better had one that would have pretty much cemented. Number one in the world in Djokovic wanted me to do anything about it Dollar Been Year number one and there was any chance that joke could have passed them no matter what he did in the finals But that didn't happen so Nidal Pulled out in the semis. He had an abdominal injury. He had suffered I try to find out if this was an injury. He came into the tournament with Dot really sure exactly when he suffered it Maybe it was against Songa and it just Was Worse may be a. It was something that he suffered from warm ups. But it sounds to me like it was an aggravation of something that already existed But he re- you know his warming up and it just was obvious that he couldn't go and he retired So anyway there's a lot of a lot of players that were in this draw. Obviously you have some of the top players on tour players like the no Medvedev ends to find a sixty poss and Karen Hatch Nov. but Roberta. He stayed goot FOB. Fini David go fine. Stint Rink the Schwartzman Matteo Bertini Dominic team among others like is ner. It's Masters One Thousand Right. So obviously you talked about some of the best players on tour But ultimately it came down to two people that would be Novak Djokovic and surprise finalist Denis Pavlov. So I WanNa do winners and losers but I'm GonNa do that after I get through talking about the final here. So let's path to the final Novak Djokovic and his path was Quinton Carinthian Moot Kyle Edmund Stafani Pizzi pause and Grigore Dmitrov Denisova laws road to the final path. The final was Jill. Simone who retired Match Fabio Fini Alexander's of era of a guy on fees and then RAF on doll who retired prior to the match. Starting who had the toughest draw? Well I would have to go with. Novak just on the fact that there was no retirements And then again that's not Danish Pablo's fault by the way he is often to apologize. It's not anything to do with him. Jill Simone That was a match. That was you know A good solid match. But then Jews had to retire Fini Alexander's very of those or solid wins. credit to Dennis for that and then he went out and he absolutely destroyed. Gilman feace. It was just a. I don't know whether Gale wasn't feeling it or was simply the fact that Papua of just was on fire and I I'm thinking it's more the latter. I think Dennis was just really on fire. Watch some that matching they get to watch all of it but I do watch some of it and a dentist seemed to be controlling everything out there Gynecologist didn't seem to have any answer to what Shapoval of was thrown at them. So let's take a look at the final soon. Novak defeated Dennis. Six three six four and this was result that I.

"Of all arms and legs and not really created much more power than Yorker visual doing anything more effective and Djokovic swatted him assize shop of course sack or the moment almost as though he was kind of happy with that and then talk of each round through the fourth set six love and you must marry this week I thought aw shepherd made major strides and the reason now I think they told me strides is because he's not hurting the top lies lies in the same way that the Passover Medvedev hurts are hurting Djokovic okay not this week because sits fast cutting off the core he has done this this shop about of still looks quite a way away as much Jakovich and the Australian Nathan match I think you'd struggled to see progress and I'm not saying I'm not saying he hasn't made progress because we have I've seen evidence of it in other matches this week of the the the breakthroughs dot com but today there was no evidence of it and and and failing to produce on the biggest stage against the top players blue it's it's a compliment to him that we're talking about him in in these terms he expects out of himself it would be it'd be worse through saying Oh he's he's not beating Jovic but was expecting him to challenge shocking Bitch 'cause then you put him in a different bracket can I think we're we're hold him to account because if what we want and expect from while he didn't deliver today and you said about Battipaglia Renault Prepo cost past that she doesn't play show she plays points which is the inverse verse if Dennis Chiappa Valve today he played the wrong Scholtz and I always looking at him thinking stop thinking Dennis Stop having I thought you I who was it said the thing and I think I think this is the wrong way to express it but there was a legitimately tennis player I'm GonNa say maybe McEnroe Connors that said to be a top player and he was probably trying to give himself a compliment in the process of saying this to be a top ten inspire pair you either have to be really smart already dumb he was at a great line I tried to earlier and giggles denied all oh knowledge over the words and it was pretty set in the issue is either McEnroe corners and I I don't think that's the right way of expressing it in terms of intelligence and lack thereof I but I think there's a there's a grain of something in there about thinking they're all players players that I feel feel confident in having thoughts on a tennis court for example take the big four I would put rough on adult in me not having so many thoughts on a tennis court categories very very rough on Darcy's tennis very very simply nice what he's doing sees tennis ball hits tennis tennis ball he knows how to use this game to the maximum stay in the moment compete does he can he doesn't allow himself to outside five thirty nine exactly it's it's not necessary it's not helpful it's very very simple Andy Murray Novak Djokovic Federer that problem solvers Bovis the asleep tacticians the the having thoughts on their their problem solving trust them to have thoughts I'm fine with them having thoughts finish up a valve to have fewer you want him to go on preprogramed yeah I do I wouldn't Miko usually to drill something into him that's in his muscle memory out there on the court with it just in he's veins and just some kind of hypnosis we can just be like tall and be in the moment which I know is easier said than done I get that down in late head space what up just stop having thoughts but they don't work you're making their own decisions probably say the same for physed verve and I was thinking about the next journalist thinking oh if I if I sort of inadvertently struck upon something here I want to verify few words Medvedev I trust have thoughts yeah he figures things out as things out find onto weakness in the husband's in on it yeah and identifies what he's not doing wrong what he's doing wrong and eliminates it and in that's fine they just looking at me I it sounded good discussing earlier before you got here I'm only trusted thought so no looking looking face you have thoughts in the morning couple call 'cause last night anyway you'll be hearing about podcast in a few weeks it feels like sometimes as you say we're being kind of harsh on chap about oval kind of we want more from him but because we know it's there I put out on twitter that the most exciting thing my perspective tap into the next Gen would be shepherding realizing his potential because I like the way I love the play especially since surpassed I love the nature of his tennis it doesn't make me gasp in the way that does when he when when he's on like he was against fees was he unbalance against Murphy's that's he was he wasn't falling backwards hitting shots he was he made that progress at that level he hasn't made the progress at the level up which sits on he has the potential to I played tennis that dominate team played can stagger Schwartzman in Vienna final which literally might be yeah now that chalk engaged we talk about Ashburn tipping point plan I feel like Djokovic become arch point player in recent years he has worked out patterns and he's also become incredibly good a winning points with remember when he beats by dropping the ball short repeatedly I think in Rome somewhat something like that because whenever I see very begins Jockey which I sometimes think oh you know I can probably go to Tokyo bigshots back and big serve so what is joking rich to doesn't give him any of that stopping at show and I think that part of this game is really underrated it's it's easy to think of Djokovic is a bit of a goal machine but he is not it does create and it used to be that he used to he has like properly developed his game he's not just a return who puts it on the baseline on and drills it's not it's not as not as artistic to look at as it is with Pires doesn't make calls but he's insufficiency makes you your mind boggling it's in its own right in in that way he is having thoughts like it's all what's this I feel like the two keys Djokovic now hopefully for the rest of his career really number one his fitness we've seen these had little nichols that's here with his shoulder his elbow out by the Tennessee while and number two his focus focus and I think he's pretty much always going to be focused at the SAM's now we're just gonNA disease in the Grand Slam race is going to be focused but I really anything that having the year number one to go for has kind of sharpened his mind he's a player to what we saw in Shanghai even Tokyo she she kind of cruise through what was the point differential now the end of the six hundred forty and there's a there's what fifteen hundred available to the winner of the two so doll always a big question mon he's GonNa do if they play each other in the final the Dow is the champion right the number one right right yeah but if the group undefeated maybe I don't show doesn't reach the the final Djokovic Windsor I think that that would give that's right I think chuck rich and I I just a different vibe about him like he's uncovered during a similar to the tennis you know quieter level repeated identity as far or not far I really playing well also think being sick like this this week has focused his mind bs nine there's no there's no room for Expanding any strenuous energy energy kiss kiss even I think even in tournaments he's been brilliant ants this yea Eh Senor match very irritable or they'll raise which really irritable and if he just hasn't looked like that's sort of impenetrable winning machine for for periods there apart from in the first round against Corn Tom we say where I think think he really was ill since then it's been just I I can't afford confidence to expand any energy it's not required to Eh and it's been so so business like I think I'm right in saying that he hasn't lost tie-break since Wimbledon when he lost I think it was her catch got him in the tie-break in my second or third round and since then he's won every single time right starting with those three want against Federer in the in the final Wimbledon as you said Catherine Pasco to make you feel invisible in tiebreaks winning those three without eating unforced they're I'm just gonNA this is my this is my turf do you know this this Grand Slam Race Sixteen no doubt nine hundred federal twenty kind of pets combined away in the last few weeks Dallas that close and I heard in your studio Gregor's insecure Saint Nidal's going to reach twenty next year so you know just just casually putting but then you think well probably because you probably wouldn't adventure where's IT GONNA end up to this again anyway divert your attention from the greatest of all talk debate you mentioned the Doubles to get onto that going toe to Moshe Moshe sorry from she went out sadly emotional oh you get bad and Nikola Calama one eight current hatch of and Andre Rebirth I Paris Masters Title Surfin Seven Masters Overrule Just lovely Friday broke up they did AH in line I'm recycling from the prime coverage it it was not received well by Gregory said ski he looks at me because because lost my marbles if you love someone set them free that is Nikola together the video greg perplexed up the thing is not happy about it yeah pity that's love visit he hurt him but he knew that he had to celebrity to come full so given doubles and walked out on the WHO that's the he had decided to focus on singles it somebody giving up doubles effectively and then only Murray walks up and says that was with me said so if I'm having a bit of that and then that really mational quotes about it and the funny thing is then go up to the Wimbledon final with Russia vessel to Russia he was a stain the rebound guy. Yeah I understand that but where we didn't like Dawson's creek or anything this is a will narrative so I i WanNa know what something to Roger Vessel took he was he was a macguffin wasn't a he was a plot device the ultimate love story of Peer Reggae Band Nikola Calama and before we think that I'm just creating something that doesn't exist here during the speeches today it Perez was giving his lovely hopeful trophy acceptance speech paying tribute to everyone in his dad you know saying I had won a match in three months in my teams that with me and Nikola my drops to his knees as in it it looked for a moment like he was going to propose it was it's like that that love love is stronger for each other given they've been through this year and it was like a bear was taking responsibility for I learn a new French words just before not he said I'm a four for this for for what happened to us this year and this this is kind of like my redemption in a way you know just isn't making it all right again because bass is such a big deal for the French play in Maui was talking about how he used to sit in the stands and Oh that was really emotional national may may in his speech said because of Keith James Stunning the tournament Director House he so many jobs bessie from the the French because he's cool ski but did show a video of ninety one you said when he won the title I think it was ninety one he said younger male does frontier Nikola said that he was in the stands with his dad had watching defoe J. beat going even as a bitch here I can't remember the year that he said but anyway he remembers little kid well it was one of his first tennis watching memories and he said I hope there are some young kids in the stands just now that I've watched this today in a similarly inspired and and his son who's on call oh nothing neil he was horrible had everything it was an epic Shakespearean this magnificent tribe I'm still a bit worried about Russia mastermind who has gone from Wimbledon Whitmer who having lost it's been five just heartbreaking sense from that he's gone on and he's plight in Washington with with my who he's played right in Canada with him he's played in Cincinnati with Austin cry and then look at listen to all these palm down she got a little bit of a run out with the WHO in a Mozelle and they got to the final that and you got to the final in Japan Japan open any one that would so that was a.
