That's the latest I'm Cameron Fairchild, you're listening to Bloomberg Business of Sports from Bloomberg Radio. Thank you so much for joining us. We're here each and every week for you at the same time talking to the biggest names in sports. I'm Scarlett, who along with Mike Lynch and Michael Bar. Let's continue our conversation with us to National Tennis Center CEO Danny's ouster, Michael I don't mean to get up all in your business here, Danny, But you're the guy when they want renovations and improvements. You're the money guy. So what do we looking at for the off season for any improvements. And and cost wise. I mean, obviously, if you're the man that watches all the pennies and dollars can you take us through that process? Well, you know, let's not lose sight of the fact that our organization gave us approval over the last 5 to 7 years of spent about $650 million to redo our entire site, which included a roof over Arthur Ashe Stadium, a brand new Louis Armstrong Stadium in a grand town. Basically we reinvented the entire grounds. So we are not an organization that ever rest on its laurels. So no matter how high the Wow factor is the fans we look at any opportunity to improve it for the following year. 2018 is the first year that the site was completely rebuilt, and we got the benefit of that for 18 and 1919 produced record breaking in every category broadcast sponsorship ticket sales. Obviously 2020 no fans, 2021. They're coming back, but not at that 100% that we saw in 19. So when we look forward, we know that there's really not going to be building in the short term. Of this year. Who's our chief Revenue officer has done an incredible job with our sponsors and partners and bringing in new partners that can complement everything we got on site, So there's a tremendous amount of upside. The growth of recreational tennis in the U. S right now is exploding. And it's an opportunity for us to introduce new people to the sport and to the U. S open, and we also see great opportunities internationally in markets that we just haven't really had a big presence in the past. And hopefully the international fans can return next year. One thing that we've mentioned several times and I feel like we're dancing around it. A lot is.

"A. You're damning this we. Might not be as good a play residual. The is his brother breeze in the drool. Look I love on I would pay to watch her play above ahead of so many grandson champions but. Lifetime's. Running into sify Kenan and ilk. End. Final the final discussion. I, think we'd better just talk about human the Denisovich intimate abolish who have been thrown out of the doubles tournaments. have been told that they couldn't play today. And I. Still Don't completely understand what the difference between them and Adr Marino arena yesterday was circumference. Can you explain I think today's dialogue was less collaborative. So what it seems to be to me and I looked. For backup and guidance here is that the player hotels both of them are in. Nestle County. which is under a different jurisdiction to the Billie Jean. King National Tennis Center in the tournament, which is in the city of New, York. So the USDA have reached an agreement with the city of new. York with the help of Governor Andrew Cuomo. Choose to have these protocols and regulations in place for the players that are. Sort of separate to their little employee of existing state and. The existing city protocols coronavirus. And they apply. At the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center. Nassau, county in that almost forty hours have introduced. New if she new eat it about people that have been in close contact with those have tested positive for covid nineteen dictating that they have to entirely quarantine for I think. Fourteen days. And that would include. Key Denisovich Kirsten Flip Flip Kuenz the Ben wallpaper eleven if you will. I believe nobody is explicitly said this but the implication therefore is that the sole difference between Audrey Drian Marinas, situation and key humid- benefit situation today is that At the time that people were. Registering this slight shift in the situation I'd remember we know was already on site. At the Billie Jean King National Tennis. Center. Where is Christina Medina? Vich was still at the hotel in Nassau County. It raises the question for me. What would have happened if address marina would one is much yesterday would have had to stay. Live at the tennis center in order to be able to play his next match I mean I'm suitable a know it sounds silly but. Soon, if genuine will. Ellen niff- Allen. Peres. Who's a doubles player and Seems to be some kind of spokeswoman for. Lower ranked tennis player certainly on twitter. She often uses a platform to talk about ongoing issues and she said she understood that if men Reno had won and comeback to the hotel, he would have to have been also withdrawn from the tournament. So I think we can read into that. The only way from an arena to stay in the tournament. Yeah probably would have been. Staying on sites. Throughout the duration that he was left in, which is A. An absurd situation. Really. But. Yeah. Over Steve Overstay, they are right for the dictated by the. Policies of the various areas. Square it's quite hot. Hetero and isn't it that we're in the situation I suppose that applies to sign many aspects of the pandemic and to be fair USDA have have thought of so many things and then an incredible together this thing staged but. That one feels really uncomfortable. Now I think they didn't have a choice about the decision today and if the Twenty. Four hours but I think where this kind of ood started was when they allowed the pauvres eleven to play I, think I think by making that concession they they did make it a lot more. Complicated and I know some people are praising that decision because people. Did get to play the tournament and there has been an awful lot of four out in the last few days and and it all stems from that decision if those players had simply been withdrawn in the same way that Kita Pella had. Yes, that is still difficult on them but I think I think they would have avoided these these knock on issues. Yeah muddied the waters in created a situation which was. Ripe for this sort of drama and the inconsistency that we've. We've landed up with I have no issue with strict protocols whatsoever I I believe in them and I have very little time for tennis players or anybody objecting to the move complaining about them. Because they knew what they were signing up for and be this is the world we're living in the world that everybody else's living in I do they have a lot more sympathy with? Lack of consistency of rule application. And That seems to be where we've ended up. The USDA had no say in what happened to the Denisovich today. As as we've made the point. They've they've sort of tied their hands behind their backs a little bit and I'm you know I I'm sympathetic. It's the by and large they've. They've done really well. That was potentially a bit of a slip. But. Gives me. I'm very surprised that Milosevic didn't do an instagram live today. For the night vacation or done. So we've heard the last of our. I think she's got to spend about the next ten base in that hotel room well now in issue with them, not being able to get to Roy Moore isn't that? Qualifying, Rome is begins next week end of next week. So I think custom flip would be playing qualifying Rome as it stands at the moment she don't think she would be able to get there in time I mean. This. Isn't going away. Basically, this is going to rumble on. And there will be more repercussions and these tennis players in are locked in a room with Internet and devices. So yes. There's no getting away.

We're not creating it for you creating it for new audience. And he's claiming percentage of people that are watching it who've never seen it before? Although I should say, he's actually giving out numbers of the people that are watching it until also we don't know what that is a percentage number whether it's got any relevance at all. But I just feel that when you are constantly trying new scoring systems outs, and if you, if you brought that in if you brought lots and lots of different types in I, I would struggle to follow what's going on? I think really I'd like to have a common. Scoring system I think. It's good to have. An option for instance engulf the fact that there is match play, and there is stroke play for an in in in cricket, like one day internationals and five days and I can just about take twenty twenty as well so I think there is room for for different types. Of scoring system within a sport, but when you're changing things to that degree, yeah, it does start to feel like. It just doesn't feel tennis. Really. The shots might be the same but But the rest of not there is actually one reply that we had to your re appeal for questions. Matt's by Arturo. The OSU says despite the initial skepticism there are a number of positives related to you T S successful execution in challenging mid pandemic times. Inclusion of women is a priority in their agenda. Well, yeah, they have added four women tournament to initial one, although it was pretty jarring to see that graphic with about twelve blocks and four women on it. And Great Camera Angles which he says. Are you prepared to it knowledge? There's yes, we are preventing. Anyway, but I still. I still hope that? Tennis can carry on being normal Taras as we used to. Because I think the basically great. Question from Diana, see on twitter at dialogue. What do you think about? The crowd noises audio. What do you think about crowd noise audio at crowd? As much as you said it seemed to atmosphere at the. Events whilst the British one I think she's talking about the backlash Brits. Was a bit to empty septic. That event held the National Tennis Center. They opted not to have official crowd noise on the TV broadcast, and obviously with football number of other sports official crowd noises, being used, or at least being offered an option and a lot of channels you can, you can select whether to have the artificial crowd noise on with football. When football made its return in the UK I was expecting not to once artificial crowd noise because i. just I don't like fake things I don't like. Pretend. But then I watched about a minute and a half if Crowd noise and very promptly and ever since have elected for. Crowd noise and have no regrets about that his. There's some things. Really quite haunting. About the noiseless stadiums that. I. Don't want to to confront. I'm quite happy to allow myself. The concession of living in a slight land of make believe watching sport. During this time, but I don't know whether it, will i. Whether, it will work for tennis I. G You I mean. Big Job for DJ. And and what did you do with this? Because you were talking last week, we were you pointed us in the direction of the test match cricket that was going on and and to listen to that and it had. Quite comforting Oh. It's above in the Bamadoro. Ambient Lord's. Pavilion Noise Not specifically crowd chairing, but just this sort of really low level. Of. Activity and I want to fed into my veins I it playing? I tried to get to sleep. It was yeah, just like a womb blanket. I find a sort of low level football sound to to be preferable passenger, silence, and just hearing lots of block, shouting and swearing. With the tennis with the battles Brits. I pass knee loved the silence because tennis does silence really really well. Wimbledon! Shannon! That's when you can hear a pin drop and you got a rally..

"In terms of her career I think she's had a good career. Don't get me wrong I. Don't want to criticize her. She's had a good career. She's made a good living. She's done some good things I think she could have done I think she could have done better Just a final. Point on. On Serena. I just wonder. Whether the fact that she knew that Venus was waiting in the fourth round. You just wonder if that was something that was on. Her. Mind is something that perhaps wouldn't have thought. Oh, if I hadn't watched that documentary this morning preparation for this, but She she makes a point of very very big point. One of her signature move Serena is to not ever look at the drool. And even when she's, she's one the previous round. She doesn't even then want to know until match day. Patrick more totally says until who she's facing. But then she makes the point that as the tournament progresses, you can't help but look around and see who's in the locker room with the because. Of course, he play alternate. Sides of the drawer and alternate. Ultimate days, so you know the people in the locker room with you are in your half of the draw. Eat Ain't now. Within that half they are. You know that you'll destined to meet them before the final? And unfortunately she she knows she knew that Venus is playing on the same days and she'd she'd figured out by that point. That Venus was her next round opponent and Venus was finished, was playing really great tennis at that time, and she'd beaten Serena the previous March they'd played. A few months before. and. There's a line from through in that documentary where she's. She's looking ahead to that full throughout much. Venus and she says. Venus loves the grass unlike me. You know I I think. I think she was she was both. Anxious about. The the discomfort of playing, and trying to beat her sister, and also anxious about the Venus Williams as an opponent as an obstacle. To her winning that Wimbledon and completing the calendar slam she she saw Venus then as toughest opponent so. I wonder if if that was in her mind as well contributing to to those nerves, which believe Jean King observed and and Serena confessed eighty. And of course you know those nerves only going to ratchet up with every match that she played every Grand Slam match that she played from then on. In that extraordinary season, if twenty fifteen well, actually, the second question's a press conference after the head of what's she's something to do with the Grand Slam that she's trying to. Complete and she she snaps, said it. She just says this is the last question I'm going to be asked about the Grand Slam in this current because. I I. Don't think about it is I. Don't think about it and I don't want to think about it. Fair enough. Well we know what happened she? She went onto win. That will. Didn't you beat Venus? In the fourth round went on to reach the final Biegel. Binion mcgary a pretty handily in that final. And then goes into the US. Open having already won the Serena. Slam has to be said she's holding four. Grand Slams at that point, but. What she's aiming to do that. Two Thousand Fifteen US Open is complete. The calendar year slams. There's not been done since. Steffi growth in one, thousand, nine, hundred, Eighty, eight, and She comes within too much. Is If doing so losing out to To Roberta Vinci in matched. I'm sure David will find a way for us to relive. In in. In a couple of time regardless of whether the US. Open is actually happening or not. Well you. Never know. We do. In terms of had written by the way we're just going to. We're going to wrap up off fortnight by bringing you a couple of bringing up to date with a couple of bits of news from the the tennis to one of which is that the the progress tour women's championships scheduled to start on cheese day. Coverage of that is on the BBC Sport website. Starting at Eleven A. M Heather Watson as I say is playing. Their Harriet Dot Katie Bolts. Katie Swan has come into the field as well. Unfortunately Murad Connie had to withdraw cited about watching her. She's a very talented young. Brit but they failed in coverage. There is on the BBC Sport website and APP an OB players well. If you want to follow heather or anybody else's progress in that, it's very similar format to the battle the. Four of four other than two groups of four and a knockout at the latest, so that starts on Tuesday, National Tennis Center and it's on three until Sunday So That's how the Watson's doing this week, I wonder what she's been pairing. on some of the BBC evening shows around Wimbledon. She seems pretty kind of engaged with what's going on in Tennis I. Mean We've been talking about her career in this episode like it's over. All Cheese Pasta peak she's. Twenty Nine Twenty Eight, twenty eight. She's had a good run recently. She's fifty in the world right now. So for all we know, she may still have her best ahead of her. I hope so because I believe the foundations of her game from at least from what I can see a strong I. Don't think has size and a lack of pal. Relatively speaking should necessarily be the ultimate deterrent. Look at look at some. How who? has made the absolute most of a game and and I I. Don't know enough about the technicalities to know what the absolute limits of her Watson's game are but I think that they are higher than what she is produced so far so we'll say good luck..

"Hello everybody welcome back to the body. Serve Jonathan and I'm James. His I told you had a bit of a surprise for you at the start. Those, Where we're watching the great, we've got one episode left and it's filled with Hazaras. That is the catchphrase. We are in the middle of pride month, and before we get into the show, a special shot and thanks to Tom Humber stone who has been or designer over the years for? Various artwork that you may see associated with the body serve, and he's given the body serve a pride makeover, so we've updated all of our various socials and websites, and you can have a look at what he did there. We think it's just swell, so thank you talk so there's been a lot of news this week. Tennis's not exactly back in full swing, but it is apparently coming soon. The plans are in place for the US Open Roland Garros and for the WPA of pretty full fall. Schedule this to happen in one day. Basically. You wake up before i. do so when I got up. We'll tell you when that was or when that typically is. Knows a lot for me to catch up on. It took a while took like full day very like I had a a grasp of what was going on, and what it felt like to me, was one domino started, and then everybody was like damn. Yes, so the USDA teased a little bit earlier in the week that they were primed to go ahead than a big announcement was coming pending government approval we had heard rumors about the zoom calls this huge. ATP Zoom Com that no Ruben was talking about on the behind the rocket podcast, criticizing Novak Djokovic for allegedly not being there, so we knew there were is nothing alleged about to. He was not okay. The whole point university I don't WanNa get spread cheated. You know everybody's got to be charted once in a while. The so there were there were murmurs throughout the week, but. Wednesday at ten am. The US Open holds a press conference in the empty and cavernous. Arthur ash stadium. Stacey Allaster is there? They have a few other folks on court physician. Mc I forgot who that was. Sorry. My reporting skills are just not up to snuff over the the tennis break, but it was very much a public relations event. There were a lot of sport reporters on zoom. So after the the press conference happened, or after the main presentation happened, there were individual questions by. Reporters who they showed on zoom, and when we found out that there wouldn't be media physically on site. We got the sense that this, too was a trial run for what the media access will be at the actual tournament where presumably players will be interviewed via zoom. Right, so the big announcement as I'm sure you've already heard that the US Open will go ahead. As planned in the the same part of the calendar in New, York City at Billie Jean, King National Tennis Centre with no spectators, and with a lot of health provision in place, but listen I'm still surprised that they're going full steam ahead. I'm still extremely skeptical and especially what we're seeing now in. Clemson University for example. was. At twenty three members of the football team tested positive for COVID. The exploding numbers and Florida Arizona California baseball has affected right now. Golf is affected right now pretty much every sport that you've seen. Attempts to restart has been affected in one way or another in tennis. Not going to be immune to that and we'll get to why. We think that that's the case based on what's been going on overseas. Break so I? Guess I'm getting ahead of myself. Let's just go through the actual news first, and then we can comment on it as part of this abbreviated summer schedule, or there will be the Washington D. C.. C. Tournament, the city open held in DC, starting August fourteenth for the men I. Don't think we have heard about the possibility of a winds tournament yet, but I believe it's being discussed because it's typically joint event, right, it's not currently in the WTO calendar, but apparently that is still open, then the western and southern open. That is normally in Cincinnati will be held in New York City the week before the US Open. And then the US Open and because Cincinnati is moving to new. York. That means that there will be no qualifying. For the US Open because typically the week leading into the Grand Slam in New, York, city. It's this. It's this week long. Qualifying Extravaganza pretty much and so with Cincinnati playing that there's no room for qualifying

"On the podcast with me. It's great to have year. Yeah I had a nice fun vacation working working working. You were working working working. I know it's been a really busy season. But we're back on the tennis Powell chronicles. Podcast time for the off season. Just kidding all right. Let's listen to our interview with David. Breslow David Welcome to the where so glad to have you on tennis pal. Chronicle thank you fill up. It's really appreciate the invitation. I'm looking forward to. Oh it really is an honor. I mean your your history and your experience is very impressive and I think our listeners would love to know a little bit about you as a person. So where did you grow up? And how did you find tennis? I am a Buffalo Nghien by birth Buffalo New York home of the cold and the snow and the indoor tennis in the winter and the outdoor tennis in the two weeks of summer. It's not really that bad but I'm originally Buffalo NEOM and that's where I learned to play the game and that's why I started playing the game in high school My two favorite sports when I growing up in Buffalo were tennis which I played. I and I started kind of late in maybe tenth grade or so and hockey which. I started in eleventh grade which is really late for a hockey player but I grew up loving tennis. Might the first player ever saw. Was Ken Rosewall. If if they're forty or forty five they remember Ken. Rosewall and Australian back in the days with Rod Laver and all those Australian players and saw Ken Rosewall on TV. And I thought I would love to play like him and my game believe it or not ended up looking just like him with very flat groundstrokes and all court game he. He created such an impact on me when I saw him playing Wimbledon on television that I literally was watching him in mimicking his movements and that became the movements that I basically played my game but the hockey I fell in love with After that and ended up playing hockey till my early fifties and still playing tennis as my first love. Wow that is super exciting. And how did your passion for Sports Hockey and tennis? How did that turn into something professional for you? Well that's a really good question because for me. I was one of those tennis players that looked really good on the practice court but then when I played matches somebody held up the balls and said these are good. I tended to fall apart and couldn't understand why I just when I played competitive tennis. I was nowhere near the same player that I was when I was on the practice court and I everybody around and asked all the better players and I read all the books on tennis psychology and so on and so forth and none of it really helps but I got so frustrated by that and I talked to so many amateur players who were also frustrated and they tried everything that was out there and I looked at that and I thought you know what I'm not the only one. There's something going on here. Why is it so difficult to get out of our own way? Why is all the stuff that that I'm reading? These other people are reading and the vice that they're getting just not working. There's something missing. And that's what led me to create my my program which is called match tough and talk about that a little bit later if you if your folks want to know about it. But that's what led me to it because one day I was playing competitive tennis locally in my area and I traveled down to New York to play a an amateur tournament at the at the Location and we're the. Us Open is at that time. In flushing in flushing Queens. And I lost in the first round and I was so ticked off because I had done this before but I ended up losing to a player who wasn't nearly as physically good as I was. He just didn't have the physical talent but I was so mentally weak that he ended up winning the match and when I came up to shake hands with him at the end of the match he just Kinda he kind of brushed his forehead aside and he said few when we were warming up. I thought you were going to kill me. And I can't. I can't tell you Philip. How many times I've heard that. Do you know how difficult that is to hear player after player saying that to me and I'm like damn something's wrong here and that day I went out to my car and I was so upset that I banged the roof of my car with my rackets and I'm yelling and I'm screaming at myself and I got so exhausted I fell to my knees and that's when it came to me I heard this little voice inside. I don't I don't mean to make this sounds like mystical or anything but I heard this little voice inside my head and it said why. Don't you go back to what you knew when you were younger? And I sat there on the ground literally on the ground. The cement and I'm looking around going man. If anybody was videotaping this they'd think I was nuts. Put me in a Looney bin and a I hear this voice go back. Why don't you go back to what you knew when you were younger because when I was a younger chap like ten years old twelve thirteen I remember thinking that there's this thing going on with the mind body relationship and there's there's something there that I kind of understood as a kid the mind body relationship I it it made sense to meet and I forgot all about it so when I got older seventeen? Eighteen nineteen twenty I kind of deferred to the books and the experts and the psychologists and my my better playing friends I deferred to them but they didn't know much about this either but that day at the at flushing when I lost that match it bothered me so much that I remembered all that stuff and that's when I went home and put the match tough program together. That's how all that started. Wow something started in you when you were ten years old you you were carrying something that you had been given. Can you kind of describe that? I'll try to describe it. It's it's a little strange. I suppose I just when I was younger. People used to come around me all the time and asked me questions about stuff. I mean I mean I'm eleven ten eleven years old. They're asking me questions about relationships about you know competitions and sports and things like that and I would answer them and then when they walk away ago How did I know that I don't know how I knew that? But I said something really. Smart there But I don't know how I knew that so. I had this innate wisdom. Let's say that that I just I just came to this planet Willis. If people can accept that I didn't study it. I didn't. I was too young for identity university. I just had this innate wisdom about the mind bag relationship and how the mind works with the body how it's all connected to produce the experiences that were having in in the world and on the tennis court and it all made sense to me I just I was honestly I was afraid of it because nobody else was talking that way with in that world with my friends so I've got uncomfortable and I stuffed it back inside and that's you know and I. I wasn't performing well at all. Not Just in tennis but in hockey as well at the beginning but that match just triggered everything. I was so frustrated from having to go through that experience time after time after time because I really was talented at a lot of good physical skills but I just wouldn't produce them when it mattered the most even in social tennis as long as it counted. I was having a little bit of trouble but when I was playing you know Practice matches against players. They would love to practice against me but they didn't really enjoy playing the in competition because really good players players who really get it. They want their opponent to play. Well I never wanted that when I was younger I was just hoping they would double fault and make a whole bunch of errors and let me get. Get the heck out of there with a win which is totally the worst way to approach things. But that's the way I was when I first started out Totally mentally weak and I. I just completely dismissed everything I understood when I was younger and I paid the price for it. I'm sure a lot of tennis players can relate to that Just being able to rally really well being very relaxed and and hitting freely During their rally period practice. But of course during the game really freezing up maybe double-faulting those kinds of things. How did you? How did you develop that after that? on your knees moment in flushing was the. What was the progression? How did you see it growing you? Well I went home and the next day pulled out a notebook and I started writing down. What I what I knew that I knew about the mind body relationship and then I realized that they are governed literally governed by laws L. Aws laws that. These things are not happening by accident that there are certain laws that are in place that are governing. Won't how we think how we feel. And what we do and the outcomes that we get so I sat with a piece of paper and I kinda just I was just processing things and I realized I boiled everything down to seven laws. There are seven laws which the mind the body the emotions and the energy function together to produce these experiences that I was having and I gave the laws a name. I didn't invent the laws people think I invented the laws but that would be like saying. I invented gravity. I DIDN'T INVENT GRAVITY. Neither did Newton he didn't invent grab he just gave it a name. So that's all I did was. I took the laws that are already there there they already exist and I gave them a name and I put him in a sequence from one to seven each one building on the one before. And that's how the program came to life and I approached the the National Tennis Center in New York in the late nineties. I'm sorry in the early nineties and I approach them because I heard that there was an opening for director of mental toughness. That's what they called it at the time and I called them up and I told him when I was doing and they said this is a question I get a lot like. Who Are you. Because they hadn't heard me. I said well I'm nobody. I'm a tennis player and A and a teacher. I taught the game for twenty years as well and I said I have this program but I said instead of me trying to talk you into it. Why don't you give me a junior player? Let him go through the program with me and then let him tell you if any good or not so they said okay so guess what they. Send me this kid. He's probably fourteen years old. I still remember him to this day. His first name was Tim and he was like a mini. John McEnroe was unbelievable. He was a left handed. Red-headed Irish tempered kid who just yelled and screamed on the court all the time but was super talented and they had brought in several psychologists to talk to this kid and he just got rid of all of them. He didn't like the so he walks in the room. First thing he says to me says are you a therapist and I said no and he goes good. 'cause I don't I don't WanNa talk anymore. Those guys I said No. I'm not gonNA teach you psychology. I'M GONNA teach you laws. He said laws. I said Yeah. I'M GONNA teach you laws of human performance and when you understand these laws everything about your game is going to change. And he said okay so I spoke to the kid. Maybe three times out of our ten sessions and he. The director of the of the National Tennis Center was walking by me in the hall and she stopped me said. What did you do to Tim? I said what do you mean? She said well he's behaving like an angel on the core and he's not yelling at his opponent..
