A highlight from The Mike and Mark Davis Daily Chat - 09/11/23
"There stars are in the southern sky and if ever you decide... If my research is correct, this was what the Madison Square Garden crowd heard to begin the show that Mike was in attendance for when he was in New York. I'm just watching guys play tennis, but this is what Mike did. I bet it was awesome. Mike and I were in New York City at the same time doing very different things. Wait a minute. Don't say Mike and I were in New York City. You created quite the drama by your refusal to spend even a second of time with me when you and your beautiful bride were celebrating your anniversary. Well, excuse me for not peeling away for schmooze time on an anniversary event. It took Peg Hudson to set Joe and me straight. Let me give you the backstory. Yes, there's always backstory. Your research is spot on. That was what they opened with. They all lined up across the front of the stage, including the great Vince Gill. Oh my God. That show was unbelievable. I mean, when's the last time you've gone to a concert and for two hours you hear the band just do hit after hit after hit after hit? Who can do that? It's not a long list. The Eagles can do it. And they did it. Opened up by Steely Dan. And in fairness, there's an example, three quarters of the songs, I don't remember it. I never heard of, but there's a couple of hits there for some of the great Steely Dan. And then of course, the Eagles with what was an incredible night at Madison Square Garden. But anyway, you're here, you're in town. I'm in town with Joey and Peg. We're seeing the Eagles and we saw a couple Broadway shows and I figured when Mark and Lisa go do stuff, it's Mark and Lisa time. And I should have known that. So I delicately said, hey, you want to get together for lunch or dinner while you're here? I mean, we don't see each other in person very much. And of course, as predictable as the sun rising in the east and setting in the west, oh, we're slammed. Thank you. We're very busy. We're very busy. We're slammed. We're a little maxed out here. We're maxed out. And so Joey and I got all up in arms about it Saturday night. My man, my man, buddy card is being revoked. We went to dinner at a place called Centurion, New York, and I had a table set for you and Lisa. I mean, we were in a private room on the 55th floor of one Wondervelt. I'm not kidding you. It was unbelievable. It's this brand new dining experience. And we had a room with a table of six with three of us. And I kept saying, gosh, what, how perfect that would have been for Mark and Lisa to have joined us. And Joey and I started bellyaching about your rudeness. And then Peg says, it took a woman to point out, are you guys high? Right. Well, she says, do you think they want to spend their anniversary weekend with you talking shop? And I said, well, first of all, we're more than just shop. It's not just work. We're friends. Exactly. There's all kinds of commonalities and tastes and the culture in our lives. And we're intertwined, of course, it would have been lovely. But it wasn't because you didn't give us the time of day. I know my priorities. Well, you're right. Okay. I mean, good for you. And I hope you had a lovely weekend. So what exactly should I have given up? Should I have, well, here's a weird story because we thought that one night was going to be at the Arthur Ashe Stadium for tennis purposes. And the other one was going to be at Elio's in the Upper East Side, the restaurant where I proposed to her in March of 2002. So which of those should I have cashed in, you know, go hang out with y 'all as much as wonderful as that would have been. I mean, is the proposal restaurant all that significant? Come on. Yes, it is. But here's what's weird. Here's the weird thing that happened on tennis day. Do you know how weird tennis is trying to attend it? If you want to go to the Cowboys and the Eagles on December 10th, you can get a ticket right now for the Cowboys and the Eagles on December 10th. But if you want to go see Novak Djokovic, which is what my bride wanted to do, because from 10, 15 years ago, we're watching Nadal and Federer, and she just loves these guys. And we have loved watching tennis together on the TV box. And I said, for this anniversary, I'm taking you to the U .S. Open. It's like, great, we'll go see Djokovic or other great players, Daniel Medvedev, the young Carlos Alcaraz, who may be the next Nadal. But if you want to see Djokovic, you can't. He's not guaranteed to play on a particular day at a particular time. You can nail down the day. We did not know until hours ahead of time that Djokovic and Ben Shelton, the American, would be the early match. And silly me, I thought, there's no way. He's got to be the late match. So I bought tickets to the late match at no small expense. But then all of a sudden it's like, ding, ding, ding. Nope. That is Medvedev. He'll be playing Alcaraz at night and beat him, of course, because it was Djokovic and Medvedev. And Djokovic won in the final that we watched last night. It was great. So here's what I had to do. I've never done this before. I'm a big fan of the secondary market. So I had these tickets on Ticketmaster. In the old days. You tell me you sold tickets because I was desperately trying to get tickets to go. I'm going to kill you. What? No. I wanted to go so bad. To the open? I wanted to go to the open so badly I could taste it. And I went on the secondary market. You know, God's been good to me and I have a pretty good living. I ain't spending $14 ,000 a ticket. Okay. You want to talk real dollars? I'm going to do this. I am going to do this for my bride. She doesn't do mink coats or huge jewelry. You know, she's just one of the million reasons I love her. We were in unbelievable seats for the night, for the night one in the hundred level, the loge level. And they were $1 apiece. ,700 $1 ,700 apiece. So $3 ,400 to put my wife and me in these magnificent seats. Then we learned, guess what? Djokovic ain't playing at night. He's playing in the daytime. So now I got to go get seats to that. But here's the thing, since the world expected Djokovic to be at night, that's why those seats were $1 ,700. The moment it was announced, I flip immediately to the day session, got the exact same seats on the other side of Arthur Ashe Stadium for $600 apiece. Boom. Then I sold, with my phone still in my hand, sold the ones that I had bought. Obviously, their price went down a little bit. So I didn't make it all back. But I essentially paid for the other ones with the sale of the first ones. It is a crazy modern world, man. It is a crazy modern world. And heaven forbid you would have said to your talk show buddy, you want a couple tickets to the open because I would have bought them from you direct. I wouldn't even know. Funny, I don't know how to transfer them to another actual human being. Well, there's a way. There's got to be a way. All right. I think there's enough about that. Here's my proclamation. If I come to Dallas for a weekend, I'll make time to see you and Lisa, okay? And I will find a restaurant with a private room and a seat for anybody you want to bring. All right. We'll replicate it, Texas. Let me share with you the sights and sounds of what I experienced this morning walking into work here at 111 Broadway in lower Manhattan. All the police activity as the commemoration, the bell is ringing, observing the moment the flight hit the North Tower. Twenty -two years, Mark. The moment you know well. Boy. You were in the Empire State. Sure was. And we're going to relive that today on the show as we always do. We're also going to play that beautiful faith -filled tribute called Silent Night that our friends at KRLA in Los Angeles made many years ago where God, you just don't believe it, but he has a plan and he is always, always with us, even in our darkest hours. So, you know, Axios had an interesting piece this morning about how young men and women enlisting today and joining the military. They don't have that sense of understanding or recognition of 9 -11. So many people became members of the military because of 9 -11. It was such a movement in this country and it was beautiful and it continues to be. And they're in their mid -forties now. Correct. You know, ish. And you think about, I mean, there are people of legal adulthood, 21 years old now, who were not alive for 9 -11. Absolutely. For them, it's not like it's Pearl Harbor or anything, but it's just something that happened before I was born. I got to wrap my head around that. It's interesting that I heard, that's a second time today, though, I've heard somebody say, well, it's not like Pearl Harbor. I really feel it is. Just to me, it's, maybe it's because of our age and, you know, we run around. Here's the crazy thing. You and I were both born less than 20 years afterward. Correct. After Pearl Harbor. So it was just something that had recently happened. That's right. Had a certain stigma and, you know. So I think about the people who joined the military on behalf of those who died on 9 -11 and fighting for our freedoms, fighting against tyranny. And Mark, I am stunned at the rapid way tyranny has come to our own governance. I read an article the other day in the New York Times. It's an opinion piece, to be fair. Trump indict Trump's indictments, the key players in the 2020 election effort. And Mark, they did one of these and I read it online, one of these comprehensive articles about how everybody who questioned in any way, shape or form the outcome of the 2020 election is a co -conspirator in the election denialism that is traitorous, that is traitorous, that's treason. Now, attack on democracy. Right now, never mind all the Democrats, including Hillary on down, who lined up in question the outcome of 2016. I guess that doesn't count. I'm sure the New York Times didn't do, you know, an extensive piece on this, but they've got everybody ensnared in this, Mark. Ted Cruz, Josh Hawley. We saw Lindsey Graham almost got indicted in Fulton County. And all they were doing was saying, what happened here? And exactly daring to inquire. And that has become a tactic of the left. And I think COVID, tell me if you agree with me, COVID broke the door open on this. If you dared question the vaccine or if you dared question the lockdowns, you were shut down. You lost your social media status. Some people lost their jobs. Look at the, look at all the airline pilots we lost because they wouldn't get vaccinated. And that kind of opened the door. And now it comes to the, to election integrity and the New York Times and people who think like them want to weaponize our free speech right to question anything. And criminalize it. And so your metaphor is apt. It absolutely is. And I hope it goes a similar way that the COVID extremism did. And that is that the pendulum swings. And now we have relative rationality, even though I did see in New York City, people walking around by themselves in Washington Square Park, wearing a mask outside. But not many, right? Not very many at all. Listen, I almost wanted a mask to keep away from the weed smell. I asked a New York City cop, what's with the weed? And he told me, he said, look, it's legal. You can't have enough where you're trying to sell it. You can't give it to kids, blah, blah, blah. But it's pretty, and I said, has it been a problem? He said, not really. He said, I don't like it either, but it's people doing, so, but not to divert. So your metaphor is apt. I hope that the pendulum swings, as it did with COVID, and I hope it does it maybe even quicker because the, because the Fauci's and the various other people who hit us with this have been proven so terribly, terribly wrong and corrupt so relatively quickly. I hope that can happen on weaponization of election. Well, Mark, there's reason to be optimistic. The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a lower court's ruling, huge win for free speech where this appeals court upheld the prohibiting government officials from communicating with social media companies. There was a preliminary junction. The defendants include Joe Biden, the U .S. Surgeon General, the Health and Human Services Secretary, and the courts are agreeing that it is absolutely unlawful for government officials to try to censor speech on social media. Of course it is. Well, it took a long time. Sure. Well, listen, justice delayed is justice denied. But that's the pendulum swinging. And I hope you, speaking of New York, I hope you saw the New York -based shrews over on The View Friday, Anna Navarro and the rest of them now complaining about the illegals in New York City saying they need to be resettled elsewhere. Anna Navarro and the rest of them on The View want to kick illegals out of New York. How unwelcoming. Oh, how well, how unchristian -like of them. But listen, I heard somebody say this somewhere else and it's true. People like Greg Abbott and others have called Eric Adams bluff. Yep. We've called their bluff. We've said, all right, you want to be a sanctuary city? Here's what it looks like. This is it. Welcome to Texas. Every day, the amount. Welcome to El Paso. And, you know, so golly, I hope the pendulum is swing. Great to have you back. It is wonderful to be back. Great to kick off a big, big week. I'll be in Philly tonight for a big event with Dennis Prager and Pastor Robert Jeffers. Faith and Freedom Coalition event. And then back here on in New York Tuesday and then back to Florida. So, OK, this is crazy. Mr. Acela corridor. You're in Philadelphia for an event tonight. I'm on the 115 Acela. I love that train. In the morning? 115 this afternoon. To get there. But where are you doing the show tomorrow morning? From Philly, from AM 990. And then taking the Acela back. And I have to admit, I'm not a big train travel fan. Yep. I like that Acela. Yep. Pretty cool. And, you know, I think I've got to be in first class just so I can, as an observer, experience what that first class experience must be like. If you're going to do it, do it. You might as well go up front, you know, and or actually in the back. Sometimes the first class on the Acela is on the way in the back. But I still like walking over to the cafe car and getting a hot dog. Kicking it old school. Absolutely. Yeah. Love it. Love it. Big week. All right. Happy Monday, my friend. Happy Monday.

"Follow roger from a pretty early time in his career and had a lot of consistent interaction with him and I haven't had as much with Rafa, but I've had a lot. So I look forward to bringing that to bear and diving into his story. You mentioned you've had a lot of a fair amount of interaction with him over the years and I imagine that's going to inform the way that you write this. I mean, I remember one of the features of the master was you were able to use all the interviews you've done over the years. As the base for it without having that constricting element of his buy in in real time, I imagine, and therefore, the need to give approval. Will is the plan to do a similar type of job and if so, based on all the experiences you've had with Rafa, what sort of guy is he? What sort of guided you get to know? Well, David, that is a great question. And it's almost too great a question. I'm not going to get too much into detail because I don't want to give away everything by any means because I'm still processing some of that stuff. All I can say is that I think the structure is not going to be a classic biography. I don't want it to be that. I think that Nadal's autobiography covered a lot of good ground and did it well and I think in the master I wrote a big thick chapter about an adult federal rivalry and got into a lot of that as well. So I wanted to be fun for me and fun for the readers and original. So I won't go into how I'm going to do that. But it won't be a classic biography. And my experience with Rafa was that was from the very beginning and I was lucky because my Spanish was pretty good in the early years when I was living in Sevilla. I lived in Sevilla for about 8 years. And when he emerged on the scene I was just coming to the end of that, so my Spanish was that whatever peak had ever hit it was right around that time. And it never was pretty, but it got the job done. So I got to interview him in Spanish and most of our interviews through the years have been in Spanish. So you see a different side of Rafa through that. And you know, he is an authentic gentlemanly character in many ways, but he's got a lot of love to him. Let him eat. So I think honestly, more of that comes out in Spanish than it does when he's doing English interviews. So it's going to be called the warrior. It's going to be out in 2024. Does that mean when we're not going to hear much from you while you get your head down in order to produce that and therefore how does the substack come in that you're going to start writing for? Well, and this is for me a learning curve as well. And this is a new structure and configuration for me. So I'm not entirely sure how it's all going to go, but my plan is I'm going to start writing for the substack regularly right away. I hope to do a few things from Roland Garros. This is not going to be a daily thing. Nor do I think people really want that at this point. They have plenty of other sources, but I'm hoping to bring my experience and my perspective and my ideas. As we talked about to bear there on different topics, a lot of tennis, a few other things too, it's tennis and beyond. I chose that title for that reason. I'd like to be able to tend to be the main thing, but branch out now and then. And then as I get into the manuscript, I mentioned this in the initial post on substack today that obviously the volume is going to fluctuate when I'm in deep into a manuscript. I'm not going to be right in three or four times a week for substack. It wouldn't be fair to the book project and wouldn't be good for my thought process. But I intend to keep contributing to it on a regular basis in some fashion throughout. And then hopefully going forward in 2024, I'd love to be able to the times again in some fashion, but substack will be hopefully the main source for people who want to keep up with my writing and definitely want to do a lot around the majors and I have so many ideas I haven't written so I'm looking forward to executing those and hopefully original ways on that platform. Well, I, for one, very much look forward to reading them following them, reading your books and I will miss you day to day in The New York Times. I got to say about it, but at the same time, it sounds like you're not going to be a stranger. So that's good for me too. Yeah, David. And I think all of us are it's a very fluid time. In journalism and media and with news is covered. So interesting, I'm sure for you with the podcast to figure out new ways to use it and to expand your reach with it. And I'm kind of going to try to do the same thing in terms of more from a print basis, which is my strength, obviously. Try to use my words and my perspective and some original ways. But I really love the book. The master was really a joy ride. I feel very fortunate. I know a lot of writers don't feel that way about the books come out. It doesn't go the way they had hoped. That thing surpassed my expectations and a lot of it has to do with Roger Federer, people who just have a good feeling with him and they want to connect with him and they want to know more about him and I just got lucky having through The New York Times and the Herald tribune had all that time with him. So I think I really would like to have more feelings like that and give a lot to a project and have it keep on giving. I mean, I've been talking about that book and sharing it with people around the world for a couple of years now and it's amazing to me that people still want to talk about it, but they do. That's great. Well, we wish

"Was just, it was just crazy. You know, given her serve, given her movement, I think you have to have amazing ground strokes and she does. When they're sort of calibrated, it's incredible to watch, and she also blitzed Dario kasena 6 love in the third set. She's been playing some unbelievable tennis at times this week and it's her first clay court semifinal since she won Roland Garros in 2017, which is another peak mad Yelena oster penco step. But her against her back Cana signed me up because that is great ball striking. Yeah, sure as look forward to that. The other semifinal is going to be Veronica could have met over against Angelina colina, who had the most extraordinary win over Beatrice had admire a couple of days ago. I mean, they were going for nearly four hours, weren't they? And they both exited the court in tears. It was a really moving match because they'd put each other through it. And obviously, you know, the so much effort physically that goes into those sort of matches, but also emotionally, even within it, even within them, Matt, because both players look like they were going to win at various points, and then it went the other way. Yes, exactly. Longest match of the year on the WTA Tour, three hours, 42 minutes, yeah, both in tears afterwards. I think it was a difficult match to play. It was a very difficult match to lose. The momentum was swinging back and forth. It looked like Colin and I would win the first set and had admire mounted an incredible comeback and then had admire was up in the final set and kalina wheeled off 6 straight games to win. She said a sort of fascinating thing that she couldn't feel her body or her legs afterwards. She never really thought she would have to play a three hour 45 minute match. She's not really trained for that. So in a way, it sort of shown her what her limits are and that they're much higher than she thought. I think she'd only played about a two and a half hour match before. And now here she was going, going an hour more than that. And an extraordinary effort from her and yeah, she now plays coup d'amato, who is quite quietly, I think, reached back to back, semifinals here in Madrid and Rome, having not had a great season. She suddenly really found her form, and it's a big opportunity for what for both players. And it does, of course, put another match together between the Russian player and the player from Ukraine, which is something that is going to happen a lot on the tennis tour. And is another situation that we have in the semifinals. So that's where we are up to in Rome in the tennis on court. And just before we conclude this edition of what is going to be a bit of a bumper edition of the tennis podcast, but I'm sure you understand that we've had a lot to get through. And we very much wanted to include this because just a couple of days ago, I had a chance to speak to our good friend Christopher clary from The New York Times. He's been covering tennis for that publication for more than three decades now with the greatest of distinction and while he had some news to share on Twitter and it has a Raphael that I'll slant. So what's happening? Well, David, I guess if you're a journalist and you can't have your own scoop, there's a problem. You've got to be able to keep your own news close to your close to your vest, I suppose. That's kind of part of the skill set required. But I'm leaving The New York Times staff. They're working for the paper for over 30 years. The New York Times and the international Herald tribune, which used to be its international arm. Based in Paris. And yeah, it's a big leap for me and it's been coming for a while, but it's still pretty daunting when you actually do it. And pretty emotional. I have to say, I'm heading out to become a full-time author. And I'm going to do some I'm going to write my next book on Rafael Nadal. Called the warrior and I'm going to be doing some work on substack as well to support that endeavor and have a direct connection with readers and I'll be posting some new material about tennis to publication is going to be called tennis and beyond. And it's starting right now. So anybody who's listening who licks my worker is interested in tennis, come on over and take a look. But it's definitely exciting times for me, but a little scary David, a little scary. I guess it's good to be a little scared at this stage in life, right? Absolutely right. Well, I can guarantee you've got three subscribers right here from the tennis podcast, but Catherine and myself. And I suspect you'll have many of our listeners as well, wanting to follow your work because they've enjoyed your contributions on our show and more specifically reading your work for 30 plus years. I mean, one of your tweets, Chris said that you think you've done 6000 stories over the course of time. I mean, that's an extraordinary amount of work. Are there other stories within that that number that will stay with you as you move into this next phase of your career? You know, that is tricky. That really is. I'm not sure it's a good thing, David, as I was telling you before, to have written 6000 of anything. But that's what I've done and actually I actually know that because they have a database you can look at with The New York Times and I HT, which was the acronym for the international Herald tribune. You can see how many by lines you've had and I'm past 6000, so that's just do the math, which was never my strong point, which is why I partly became a sports writer. But
Rafael Nadal to miss French Open with hip injury, expects 2024 to be last season
"Rafael Nadal has pulled out of the French Open and says that he expects 2024 to be his last year on the tennis tour. The 36 year old has a career record of 112 and three across 18 appearances at the French Open, and he won the most recent of his record 14 singles titles there a year ago. Nadal is tied with Novak Djokovic with a men's record 22 Grand Slam titles

"That both came on hard court, so this is very much obviously a clay court where I should be on tech is I would say definitely the favorite. We don't know so much about her on a clay court so far she hasn't proven herself in the way that she on tech has on the clay. But the fact that she's won both of her matches against you on tech without dropping a set so far this year, that's got to count for something. So Chris, who are you predicting for this evening's match and obviously by the time this podcast goes out, it's probably been in bean and happened. But let's get your thoughts anyway, Chris, where are you thinking? Wow, I think I'm going to slightly contradict what Joel has said in terms of the nature of the court. I think because it is so slow and it does set up. It does give some of those players that might not be the quickest move is a bit more time on the ball to really strike the ball. So I actually think that part of the reason for we're back in a success, this time around, on the clay, is linked with that that it does give her the extra time. And it also thinks something that Medvedev said that was quite interesting was that he was surprised when he played against the Spaniard early on the week that they weren't playing in what he called the Spanish style of cross court cross court cross court. They were going more down the line. And I think we're back in a is kind of prone to being a cross court player. That's kind of what she's famous for in terms of where she directs. So I kind of feel like if she's waiting to take it on, which I think she will have to be, I think this could be really entertaining. And I do think she's going to have chances. I don't think it's going to be like a straight set ego win. I think there might be a very close set. And then there might be like a sort of a less closed one, but hopefully it will go three, but I am going to say eager because I mean, you can't really not. And if there is a time when ego is going to be, we're back into this year. In Rome right now. I mean, I don't think she played particularly great against Donna vekic, but even playing at 60%. She's still kind of came out of the 6 three 6 four victory. So if there are gears to go up there, I think it's got to be an ego shield text hands. I mean, eager xion tech has won 24 consecutive sets at this tournament and 14 straight matches. And I've predicted she's going to lose a set. So that's already pushing it. Just disappointed. We're not getting the schwinn tech sabalenka trilogy trilogy fight. Yes, because then it's been one each, isn't it? So far. Absolutely. I mean, Rebecca and I has beaten siobhan on the clay at a junior tournament in Milan in 2017. So that went three sets. We'll have to wait and see. The other quarter in their section has happened already today, oster penko beating Paolo bodos, who was on a good run here. So the winner of srivijaya Rebecca and I will be playing Yelena austa benko, who has been in decent home this week. A few bagel sets. She's got as well en route to the semi. And she's had a few arguments as well. With umpires over like calls to be expected. That's not a surprise. I can't remember. I can't remember the lady, the lady's name, but it's the really stern female umpire she check, I think, or something like that. And they should just have a sitcom together. Their dialog with each other is was borderline, I think, hilarious. During their match, I think it was osteen Cossack Kuna but don't quote me on that. But yeah, I think oster penko has looked very, very good. I still don't feel like you can look at the form book with oster Panko and you've got to take it one tournament at a time, but we know that she's a match at one man at a time. One set at a time, Chris. But you know, she's a French Open champion. And I genuinely think with this run, she has put together in Rome. 20th seed here, I think she is going to be one of those danger players to look out for when it comes to Paris. She's up to ten in the race as well. And if you look at the players that she's beaten her, I mean Christa just come off a challenger title. That was the first round. Kajikawa, she managed to bagel in that second set. She also begged Casa kino in the third set and now she's taken out parallel but so you have to say this is reminiscent of that French run in terms of some of the form that we're seeing and really backing herself in these tricky moments. So whoever does win out of eager and we're back in it, I do think it's not going to be a walk in the park in that semifinal. No, and on the other side, we've already got this semifinal line up between kalinina and coup de metaverse. A Kalani really battling to get there. She won the longest match of the year so far on the WTA Tour. Three hours and 43 minutes. And Sara saribas tour, I was not involved, which is the biggest match could have gone four hours up to the first couple of sets. I think there were two like two hours, 30 plus, and yeah, they both of them put their absolute heart and soul into that match. It was it was incredibly physical. I think had admire was in tears afterwards, given the amount of effort she had put into come up short, but yeah, calina seems to be doing the business at the moment. She obviously had that win over Ken in and then keys and how did my thought was on a good run here. I was actually putting her as the favorite, but calin has done well to come through. Do you think the winner of the tournament is going to come from the siobhan tech slash Rebecca slash ostapenko section? You'd have to say that, I think. But I do think Carolina in fairness to her. I do think that she is a great ball striker. I love watching her play when she's playing well because she does swing off both wings. I think she just kind of sometimes makes those errors. And I'm really hoping it's not code a matter of versus Sri Lanka because they have never had a contest and we might be looking at another double bagel in the final of Rome. Yes, of course because sriyantha famously double bagel place giver in the final here, I believe it was. Maybe it's written. Two years ago. Yeah, maybe, well, the bakery may be opening once more.

"Out and fetch some from the supermarket. But Joel, what was your highlight of the last week? Let's move on from Kate. My highlight was in real life. And it was at the Rome masters and it was between a fleeting moment between stefanos sisa pass. And Daniel Medvedev, they were caught walking past each other on a bridge inside the venue and we all know that what should I say fractious? Relationship and they just did not look at each other. They just walked past each other, Daniel Medvedev, I think, gave like a fake wave over the bridge, so he almost didn't have to look at surpassing sort of making it up as he went along and yeah, it just gave a real fascinating insight I feel into their, well, into this into this non friendship and this rivalry that is going to be with us for time and time to come and these guys just do not get along with each other. It was pretty awkward, wasn't it? I think we've all been there where there's someone that you bought past that you don't particularly want to make eye contact with, but I mean they could have mustered a hello or a nod, but clearly it's very sound between the moment. It's very British. Colleagues on a train and just pretending they don't exist. And then you get off the train and then maybe you say hello to them in the office, but not in that moment. So maybe they were in the zone. Let's give them the benefit of the doubt. They were in the zone. They were preparing for their practice of their matches, or maybe they didn't see each other. I mean, it's provided a perfect build up, hopefully, to a match between them in Rome, which could be on the cards. They're both still in the tournament, but yeah, it feels very, very tense between them at the moment. So I want to see that bubble over on a tennis court that have to acknowledge themselves each other then. They'll do the hatching. Both look the other way, won't they? Wait for someone else. It's been quite a lot of bizarre things going on in Rome. I noticed that Donna vekic on Twitter put out, well, it was in a response to holger room street actually. About when she was actually playing, she didn't know that the schedule, and she went to bed, not knowing which how awful is that as a tennis player. You're trying to plan your day. And you don't know, you don't know when you're playing, when do you get up? When do you practice, you know, that's just, that's not on. What was going on with the scheduling there? I mean, I guess you can't out the weather, but still. Yeah, I know. This wasn't great. I mean, that has plagued, I feel roamed this week. It's made the court so slow also so much moisture in the air. I feel like we've had so many three hour plus matches, but I've never seen a player have to call out on social media. Let me know by schedule, but yeah, it's been a little bit of a it's been a little bit tough going for tournament directors over the last couple of masters events. It feels like. Yeah, and I saw some very odd decision making in terms of that masetti, tier four match, where they kind of took them off eventually. And then they brought them back almost back onto course. So I just prepare the court again, and then they didn't play. So I think maybe Donna was in a similar situation with the weather where she's like, maybe holger gets a better information than she does. So let's look at what's happened in Rome so far and we've had a couple of surprises. I think the first of which was, well, one of the biggest upsets of the year, or of some people. Upset the century, I know. And that was Carlos alcaraz. Losing to someone, I think most of us have never heard of a player from Hungary, who's outside the top hundred, 23 years of age, Hungarian, Fabian mirjan, and yeah, straight sets as well. 6 three 7 6. I was not expecting this hasn't lost to someone outside the top hundred for months and months and has been racking up titles lately. So this was a big big surprise. Joel, you're not in your head avidly, as I've been speaking, what did you make of this performance? Well, from both players, this absolute upset. Yeah, it was a big, a big surprise took me off guard. I think it made me put in perspective all the hype that has been around Carlos alcaraz, particularly in the build ups of the French Open, and I'd say, you know, at tennis week, the headquarters arguably, some of our lists will be saying we've been guilty of it as well, and we've been digging up him up as this big favorite for the French Open. And smack this result comes along and it just puts everything in perspective to me and I think marathon on the day he just played a fantastic match. He was playing some unbelievable drop shots. He was matching toe to toe with alcaraz from the back of the core and I don't necessarily think there are any kind of mitigating factors. I don't think there were any kind of injury doubts with alcaraz or anything else. I just think marzan on his day just played an unbelievable level and alcaraz just didn't have any answers to it. I think he said he felt he was made to feel uncomfortable by the way marzan was hitting on the court and he just didn't have an answer to it. So yeah, I certainly would put this in the category of marathon just went out there and won it as opposed to alcaraz losing it and I'm all for it to be honest because I think it now just creates even more uncertainty I think when it comes to the French Open in a few weeks. And Chris, I mean, outcross did say, though, that afterwards, you know, he hasn't really had much chance to practice because he's been playing so much. So do you think in element of it was just tiredness? We saw with sabalenka, how tied she's been, she's been playing an awful lot tennis as well. Do you think actually this will do alcohol as the world of good having lost a bit earlier to get that extra rest ahead of the French? Yeah, and I think it's not necessarily bad though, you know, having a match that he didn't necessarily pay your best in. I think sometimes that is kind of a wake-up call that you need to provide that extra motivation because he kind of was winning a lot of things and it wasn't coming very hard to him. He was doing it quite simply. So I think it is a bit of a reality check, not just for us and tennis pundits ever. I think also in terms of for him and sense checker where his form is that never underestimate an opponent because as Joel said on the day, he made the alcaraz served that we've been talking so much about being so impressive. Look pretty average in terms of being able to win so many points against the first and second server. I mean, he won 35% of points against his first serve and 55 against the second. So that's something that's super impressive and when it comes to the results we've seen, it's been 19 months since he's lost to someone outside the top hundred and he's only 20. So he doesn't lose to players who were right below him. So I think it is the router check he needs and I'm looking forward to seeing if this gives him a renewed sense of focus when it comes to playing those early rounds in Paris. Where does this put you in relation to the French Open and Carlos alcaraz? The fact that we were sort of digging him up as the favorite is he still the favorite or where do you see this given this result? I think along with Djokovic, they're still the top favorites. I mean, I'm basing that on the fact that I think refer will probably be pulling out, which we'll get on to later. So I don't actually think this is going to be, I don't think it's actually going to change how I feel about our crust going into the French because I do think this isn't best to 5. He probably could do with a bit of a rest and it's probably better to get the loss out of the way now for him. Going with a bit less pressure. I think you guys were talking about that a bit last week anyway. But

He dropped a couple of to seti before the insane turnaround in the last three sets so he wasn't looking peak novak and he certainly wasn't looking peak novak at the beginning of this match by the end he was pretty much there right like by the end of this match. She was getting really really great. So i mean i think that was the other part of the surprise of like show on adult hudson dips during this tournament ashley. Jovic had potentially bigger dips. So i think that's why it was so unexpected and that that in particular was who was really something to watch i mean it was a really amazing set of tennis came so close to being the dolls santa tennis The beginning of the tiebreaker capitule. Too little bit rusty than like fixed it pretty quickly say once that happens. I mean the dow was looking tired. Honestly it was. It's hard to believe that the dolls ever gonna leave a match at roland garros But it's some what makes sense. That jacob avenue now but yeah just like a just a huge truck an amazing at amazing jerk. Mitch like an amazing win for him and like a korea movement absolutely. Oh completely in this match. Talk about how. Good the thursday was. We'll get to more of that. Let's hear from both these dudes briefly here and there. Post-match press conferences would have been pretty fast after the match ended l. Here i from rafael dull. And then from novak djokovic sheer winner. That's not support you know. Sometimes you win. Sometimes you lose. I tried to give my best. Probably wasn't on my My best day. Even if i fight at devoted a lot of effort i mean the position on the shots have haven't been that effective tonight against the player like him. That takes the ball early so we are not able to do they him out of his positions than is very difficult and i would like these had the batons with set point. Six five seconds earth did know anything could happen in that moment. Then i miss it make a double fall and then Easy in the tiebreak. But it's through. That have been crazy. Point of there and The attic is is there to this kind of mistake on mistakes can happen but if you want to win you can't you can't You make mistakes. So that's it well then for him. I've been am. I would find out there. I i try my best. And today was definitely the best match that i was part of Ever enrolling girls for me and top three match that i ever played in my entire career considering quality of tennis playing my biggest rival on the court where he has had so much. Success has been the dominant force in the last you know fifteen plus years and the atmosphere which was completely electric for both players. A lot of support. Just amazing just. I was very happy that there was no curfew. Eleven o'clock there was a special waiver so they allowed to the crowd to stay. I mean just one of these. These nights and matches that you'll remember for so this match. Let's talk about like how excitable got about is really as part of the narrative of this match is people starting to talk about this match. Very superlatively honor. Mary carillo was saying. I was saying this might be her favorite Mission at all match ever which. I'm obviously recency. Buys is a real thing but i'm inclined to agree with i'm not. It's not my favorite rivalry honestly but this match again. Because i think i had lost patience for relatively to on the last episode pam shriver i think i use the word potentially boring. She tried to me for for having another nidal jovic match and it really wasn't boring like it was. It was better than it was. Because again i felt i felt maybe overly burned by the twenty thousand french open which was a big letdown of a match for me. What it competitive w was when i really really thought it could be could be something and it was really nothing so yeah it was. It was pretty cool. I'm pretty special and felt very tense and for both them to still be doing this at the state occur in their fifty eighth match like in just the shot making the level of variety in the place i think one of the most overrated matches of all time at is a twenty twelve australian open final between them which lasted like nearly six hours. That match was very monotonous and just a lot of really long slow baseline grinding on a hardcourt. That was like pure physical attrition and this one had a lot of actual tennis in it. I think that's when actually had a lot of a lot of really fun. Cat-and-mouse he points. There are some crazy lobs. Some crazy like netplay couple points they were just like really fun and creative and mold breaking and yeah i was. I was fully fully entertained in on board with the and again the excitement of having the stakes matter. The excitement of having djokovic pulling off a real surprise against the at this place. For an investment untouchable i think also elevates this in in the in the panther official good is better than log right Animal and like yeah. No i agree. This was this was an if not the best one of the best i. It was really really exciting to watch like yes kind of like tape it out at the end but that elaine was incredible. Some of the shots that happened at one point hit this kind of believe paying lupi smash cross coal that was just beautiful in stark contrast to novak smashes and yet made a few he laid a few smashes today he did on defeat today unlike ulcer. It was nice to kind of see him figure things out. Stop eating late bob dropshots. She was during the beginning I think it was a very small match from him as well. I really did feel like tools. The anti just totally had does all tied up in his backhand corn asked. That was really strong as well but it was a soup entertaining match. The crowd was really engaged for good reason so it was. It was one of ms once. I actually don't think it was the best match of this tournament. But i think it was one of joke which is best punches. Okay ooh okay. I'm curious what was the best match determine if this one. The best match of this tournament in my opinion happened in round three in the women's draw a dosa dosa every day. That was good. I don't know if it's better. But it was really good. And i'm sonal i i was saying amazing was and all these people. Men who clearly didn't actually watch ripping me for saying how amazing it was and it was. They were everyone who watches match agrees. It was amazing and the difference in that match was that they were both right for you to the end and i it was genuinely at the end. Like you just didn't know who was gonna win two of the end of this one. It staff is feel inevitable. But now i don't base in buckton was really good. That is not take away of course from the two like grapes of this. Who just played an incredible incredible match by the way credible match. But you're novato subotic. Goodbye your every nobody now that that feels that feels accurate. You're right the fourth set of this match. Was i think anticlimax and it all got up a break to oh in the in the fourth and then things really slip for him pretty quickly from there i mean he he he was having english is cut the tape off his ankle..

"Unthinkable has happened rafael. Nidal knocked out in the semifinals of the twenty twenty. One french open novak djokovic delivering one of his finest performances. Add a grand slam in his career. Of course now. He's got the chance to capture his second grand slam title at the french open. Become one of only three men to accomplish that in men's tennis history.

"He probably didn't know that much about critique before fortnight better lord of the pundits didn't they doubles player but you know as long as they know a download a bouncer. Now that's ak. We felt like that a few months before she started to show what she's got your right better late than never and and i think i think people were have been absolutely one over everybody by. Yeah i agree. So that'll be. The women's final on saturday. Anaesthesia pavlovich anchor against bob bora critique of i ask just one thing of this final a is. The anaesthesia placidly chunk of an resurrect the leopard print outfit. She wore for her madrid semi final a few weeks ago which was inexplicably flash in the pan because it was the best outfit. There's ever been any more at once. Maybe it's because she lost but you know it is one of the great mysteries of tennis and had there not been elusive very very important questions. That people needed to ask anaesthesia publishing of after her wind. Today i would've Post that hard hitting number enter and she probably would love to. Hey if she wins. Alaska d regret not winning it in a leopard print. So that is on saturday. We've got a few minutes left to look ahead to tomorrow and edition number. Fifty eight of rough. On the dull against novak djokovic and of course deficit to pass against alexander zverev as well and i wanted to take a few minutes to look ahead to it because it took in particular to nidal against jovic because hammer. Who's running twits a this week and at the grand slams. This year casually pointed out to us yesterday on our group chat that rafael nadal is too much is away from becoming the clubhouse greatest male tennis player in numbers. And we haven't talked about that. I haven't heard anybody else talking about that and it needs mentioning so we're addressing it now because that is extraordinary. And you compare that. To the questions the serena williams gets about cuts record which is as we've made the case many times a far less valid record. Wh it's valid. It's just a more nuanced record than roger federer's when you when you drill down into it and connect serena williams endorses the narrative. She wants twenty four she's not shying away from etc etc. But anyway we should be talking about the fact that rafael nadal is too much as away from getting to twenty one. Why haven't we talked about it. Why isn't talking about it. Wa hadn't occurred to me Which is ridiculous. I think we talked about it during australia. There was a moment where that suddenly became a possibility before he lost. But yeah it's i. I still think the fact that he could draw level on the number of grams. Some titles that pete sampras one in his entire career with just his french open hall. Fourteen is ridiculous on an epic scale. Him going ahead of federer. Finally after a sixteen year career would be some moment. i mean obviously. That doesn't mean that they will end up like that was a jock. Won't come back and end up over but it's a big deal and it's also this match. There is so much on this match. It is twenty nine twenty eight the head to head favor of nova with one match between them and which what could he get to nineteen if he wins. This tournament is that right. He's an eighteen right now so he could go to nineteen. It'd be one behind. Federer and the dow would wimbledon to come. I mean he's got a win two matches but she the so much on this. It's it's just amazing and novak djokovic also going for his second lap round the slams none of them veteran and jackovitch have won every slammed twice. Nepalis missing the australian open djokovic. Shin federa a missing the french open. I think that that would be a very big deal for jackovitch as well something that the federal had not done also going to the calendar slam. He sure is. Yeah absolutely just on. Just don't why we've not been talking about it. Really wrestled with that. And i think i think part of it is that a dull doesn't wanna talk about it and i think any questions tuna dull a not going to you any answers you know. He is not going to engage with that subject. And i think people have tried. And he is distancing himself from i. That's part of it. That's it's more does character. And i think people sort of talk about the record to reflect that character. Perhaps i think the fact. It's not a historic record is a little bit of a difference. You know it's it's potentially still moving. Go post it. Incredibly significant if he gets to twenty one and overtakes federal. Of course it would but it's not like that's the finish line because we don't know long is left in this race and i think another factor. This is totally unfair. But people think the dow winning vote on garrels is and bound to happen and therefore it doesn't quite have the sort of build up that i think other slams have for a long time. The dollar roland garros. People have pencil that one in the start of the year. So i just think all of those things coming together main that it hasn't been talked about so much but absolutely it. It should be being talked about and it should be ramped up right now because this is this is happening potentially We will assuming he wins tomorrow. Which is absolutely so far from a given but we will continue to rump that. That is a pledge to you. Does anybody here. Think jerk ritual win. No but that doesn't define all unanimously predicting a dull. When will this is my issue. With with plo votes i think if he pole vaulted this. It would probably be eighty percent down but that doesn't that doesn't mean he is. Whatever the equivalent of an old saw. I'd say probably will. Most of those eighty percent would put..

"It's nine pm in london after day. Twelve of the french open. I'm here matair. David table all in the same city with separated by increasingly small distances but separated still. That will change next week folks. But we'll talk about next week when it happened. Because now i feel like i need to check with you. Both that we're we're all in a fit state to record this. Podcast because i can confidently say that an hour ago. I was into in a fit state to podcasting after three hours. Eight minutes plus the emotional aftermath of critique of against secretary of done some regrouping of what's animal videos on the internet. I'm feeling just about emotionally stable. Enough to record this podcast. How about you david. Well all right catherine. Because i'm kind of used to it bob critique given how shane i've got history in terms of her talking a me getting upset but this was another level after say it was an incredibly emotional last hour of the match on both sides of the net. I've found myself really moved by both of those players today for different reasons and that was one of the best sets. I've seen in a long long time. Just had everything. And i won't forget it. Forget it a tool Just and i think those two players probably won themselves have a lot of fans. People probably didn't even know that were when they started watching the. It's one of those sets of tennis. Yeah they exchanged between sue. Baca and andy murray of the twenty thirteen wimbledon final came to mind when sue baucus said to him. Do you realize what you've put us all through that final game. And he said well imagine playing it and that's kind of how i felt. I was extremely stressed in those laws stages of that match because everything was on the line for both players and you could feel it and see how much it meant. And then i just thought well. I'm here on the sofa. I'm fine but these are the ones going through it and goodness goodness. It was stressful. But as you said that set that match really will live will live long in the memory. I think that was. That was a real classic. Yeah i think he was. The one of the. I grand slam semifinals. That i've seen in terms of drama not in terms of quality. It really went in and outs in terms of quality. The the the good thing about the quality was it was it. Was there when you most wanted it. In the most epic and dramatic moment. Somebody raised their game. Generally rather than somebody lowering that game to to lose the point the point but generally the big ones for generally one rather than lost but in terms of drama and everything that the grand slam semi final quarter. You could say quarter final matches about which is stakes. Which is yeah it. It was. It was as good as i can. Remember of the top of my head if that were if that were serena and venus williams or soccer in venus williams or give me some other rivals. Chris evert martina navratilova. It would be on all the back pages. It would be being described as one for the ages. I think when the match point incident happened with the bull being out but not being out and uproar over hawkeye but not hawkeye. I felt like okay. This much officially has everything now. Yeah it's sticking a fork in it. It's done because it's quite interesting because the first set our what's that group is very quiet for quite a while now. Isn't there a couple of reasons for that. One of them was. I was enjoying the match. I was kind of half watching it. Because i was. I was working at the time. But i think i was enjoying it because i love the contrast installs between the two and that remained throughout three hours and twenty minutes that it was going on the this sort of the violent hitting of saccharine all fidgets and energy and the languid timing of the ball and point construction the imaginative point construction of critique of our. I think it's a lovely combination. And actually when i said that you said yeah but the quality is not very good and i thought was about sounds a bit bit distracted. The time all right. We'll get onto that. I said i was a bit. But i was stunned by that. I was thinking. Is that fair. And then i went and looked at the stats. And actually there were way more unforced errors in the world winners in the columns and that happened. Throughout the first two sets they would turn turns to lose that backhands weren't they And actually quite cheek of his backhand. I think of as know when she needs. It's there and i think that is still true because it was very helpful for her in the final stages but the fact it was helpful for in the final stages was remarkable. Because it broken down throughout the match salary was targeting it had elicited a lot of unforced errors from it and yet when she needed it she still managed to find it but Yeah go back to that first. Set zachary started brilliantly. Picked up right where she left off against film tek and i had some concerns that picking up just twenty four hours later after that big emotional high of beatings field would be difficult but she managed it but what she never got was the double break. Showed me chances in that. I get it but couldn't get it. And as you said david this fascinating contrast not only in styles but in demeanor sacree is so energetic outwardly and so pumped for everything. The dow like most in the way she carries herself. I mean i love watching. She's lying. I i absolutely can't get enough of it and yet i also love critique of as much calmer sort of step by step approach to the match and those two sort of in tandem with with one another did make for a fascinating context..

"He's able to get together at roland. Garros it was. It was eight resolve. Reminded me actually if the situation tables in a fill in a pre cut of cre- long hours in the sense that you know he had a good lead up and maybe run gas was going to inspire him to take him further into the competition oversea. Unfortunately it didn't work out for team. But i certainly think it did for jd. Schwartzman getting the quarterfinals. Pretty much doing the best he can do. And you know he did he did take self nadal and he stopped mcdowell's thirty six set winning streak He also i think stopped his thirty eight set would extract a few seasons ago as well So yeah he definitely does. He definitely does relish the the competition and facing one of the greatest of all time opposite him it. You don't get the sense that it it really is. There's no sort of fear factor. There really is no. I feel like they get on well and i mean schwarzen- think yeah he doesn't fair. I think he relishes a sense as well and he's just seasons like a very nice blake. Justin he schwartzman so even as rafael. When he was he's up against schwartzman was playing. Very well you know. it's. It's not. I i did. How the phrase it. But yeah i feel like he's a friendly i if that makes sense yeah is now into his says she faced grand slam semifinal. I think As it would be his fourteen grand slam point semi final at roland garros. Oversea hasn't lost one. A in his previous but gots may well change come. Friday when novak djokovic unless berrettini stages the most unlikely comeback When novak djokovic is down the other end i mean. Let's just talk a bit about the novak bertini match as being quite regulation after. Say six three six two and they supposed to behave you so feel like is this the best bertini can can do because either he was being made to look very very ordinary and he has clinched the said satire break. But i still feel like that's the best is going to get but you know i may be wrong. Maybe wrong. I worked so i did go to. The formbook and djokovic was very much to the extractor. i think of bertini's. I think quite obvious. Weaknesses against the the big three particularly yes. He's a massive forehand and the crowd. Absolutely love it when he hits a winner from it but that still some deficiencies that particularly on the backhand side. I think it has. I think has improved kind of this season but certainly not as strong. I think as it needs to be if he has kind of serious ambitions. I think being a mainstay in the in the top ten or even pushing The top five The question i had was whether he could bring out a particular sets. I didn't see much of the bertini. Sliced back single handed backhand and i thought that would finish short there. Are you know if i was facing jock. Rich on a clay-court thin could potentially what quite well. I think we saw with don evans was gave david's by where you know he was really kinda focusing on that Single-handed slice giving jackovitch no pace and i wondered whether bertini could have employed that bit more than those fast two sets. He liked to go to the drop. Show quite a bit and i always i always take. It's never could side guide to the drop shot in like set one it just to says to be the comforted in gaito of the bay side with your opinion So i think that's certainly things he can walk on. We'll have to wait and see the the outcome of the match. But i think djokovic was looking very much in dominating in an imperious form tons of his serve on his return. I mean in that second set Bertini one only twenty two percent of points on his second serve so you must have picked up in the third but those first two sets it does suggests a little bit like nadal and not force against schwartzman. He's definitely coming to the boil at the right time. Yeah jovovich proving. Why he's the the best return in the game. And i mean whereas data evans when when you need him. Hey i feel like he's he's he's not the new bible how to beat navy on. I feel like navy to ever sleigh star in his his clay season. But he's very much there now paying the the best tennis that he can say Yeah he's looking very sharp. We're gonna take a quick break now but d- join us in a moment where we'll be looking back on all the results from dayton. So don't go anywhere. This is the passing shot with jolan. Kim supported by download. Tennis dot com. And now we're going to move on to look at all the action from dayton over at girls Where we saw well to women's quarter-finals. That very much went the distance. I thought it was quite remarkable that we had two in a row. The kind of both went a sort of six. At least in i final say and i think they've both went longer than the to benz quarterfinal matches on that day. I think they did. Yeah absolutely of our. She didn't have a tiebreak in the said. Settle in the fifth. Set for the men so it can go on for as long as you like really some. Let's start with tamara. His thought this copetition houses. She she has. She beat benko andrey in in the first round Nine seven in the third on kind of a similar story really she. She had to save breakpoints. I guess seventy eight in a seven in that much. She saw them and then managed to close out craze out the weight and so she was sort of very much towards the end of the match. She was in a not in the ascendancy. Shall we say and similar thing happened index matt. She was bright points down and he so of today's breaks it like surely surely she's but Sedans it was able to save them. T- four winners and then she came through and break producer and yeah i mean she was very composed. I thought so..
