Andy's agony, Cologne 1, St Petersburg and the longest ceremony
"So. It's been eight long days since last tennis podcast I'm already slightly concerned that I've forgotten how to do. It feels like so much longer than eight days. I didn't know about you David and Matt but I feel ready for French Open relived already. Yeah. Let's just keep believing in reliving one. Last time. What's the minimum minimum period of time that has to pass before acceptable to relive sports? The all bets are off this year Catherine we can do whatever we like. PODCAST. You. Both already reliving being in the championship and winning football matches too soon for that to. It's painful. That's that's actually quite main Catherine. In what we're talking about matt tonight both support rubbish. Teams. As does Katherine in football it's just that attitude teams are in the better division where everybody else is too good for us and Catherine's Carney. Tall of the rubbish division. Reading too good for everybody else. Well, we set with second but you know it's good tough. skit tough guy isn't it some so much aim full day I mean you've set me up for that David because you are wearing West Brom Kit which is. Yep. All the gave it. NO IDEA OF I. Mean given the A. revealed. On fields. Clashes with Diego Maradona, just thought maybe. You might need. Or maybe the third. He knows how they'll need to stoop over the course of the season David is what I would say to that Matt. How was your? Another has been tennis this week and we will be talking about it. Don't worry about how is your sort of post friendship in week being? While I was on a football high actually with an actual point next forums name until you brought us back down to reality even reminded me that actually my team is quite rubbish. A fine fine week I enjoyed my first lion after the French Open. That's always a good moment. The Post Grand Slam sleep. Sort of extended into long into Monday. But I duNno, it's a weird time. The tennis I think anyway after the final Grand Slam of the season I, spend my I like I've spent many hours in my life telling people that tennis is a lot more than grand slams and I strongly believe that but. Having the Grand Slams as the focus of the season is something I definitely do believe in an event kind of building up to them. I just think once the Grand Slam season is done. It's Kinda difficult to tune in completely anyway, and I, think in this year more than ever it feels it feels that way. So so I did watch some tennis but certainly wasn't wasn't as plugged in as I normally am. Yet even in non Keva Times is feels like often like a slightly strange portion of the the season because as you say, it's not it's not part of a story. Necessarily I mean I K- in the events in the immediately prior to. Shenzhen is it would usually be ATP finals you get that kind of race for the final couple of spots and that can be quite good fun. That's a bit less the case this year because of how the rankings have been adjusted, oversee the on having their finals and actually only have one more event this season next week in a strove as it sheduled. The moment anyway but I mean, it's not. It's not just this Bush, this season I always feel quite similarly about that many Indo spell. ofter the Australia. Nathan. It just doesn't feel like it's part of a tennis story within the season. So yeah, it's kind of always little bit the case in kind of exaggerated I think by. By the pandemic speaking of kind of relieved I wonder whether for the first time, the Dow is actually got a chance to reflect on winning the French Open normally has straight from Paris into Wimbledon and this really busy time of the year when he's actually got some time now he's he's kind of set that he's uncertain whether he will play again this season I wouldn't be surprised if he didn't a tool, he's Kinda got some time to reflect on what he's actually done in the chief which I'm sure he has done over his. Career. He's not had that immediacy. I. Didn't think to kind of stop and think about it and oversee the same for eagles film tech. You know to win for Slam and have a to reflect on. It's quite it's quite different. To how it normally is May He could just bought his his yacht in. Mediocre. For the rest of the year. My Dad's little video if Nadal sitting on his yacht, talking about how great is during a hjort. This week and I thought Oh. Yes it does look great. Good for you. Yes, it's an adult Nidal's confirmed. He he said he won't play in Paris I think and joke of it. She said the same obse federal won't be there. either. We do expect Jacovic to play the ATP finals as it stands and he's playing Vienna's well, he signed him to play that one. Yeah I'd be surprised if we saw Dowell again this year personally i. think he he simultaneously wants to be respectful to the finals and I think he would like to have one at you know he's He's he's one. But Y- he he clearly, he seems to have a deeper appreciation of. What the world is going through on his feeling that really. Severely, I think and I'm sure when you when you've already got the amount of money in grand slams behind you and everything else this does less incentive anyway isn't the foot for somebody like him but but I just feel a he almost wants to clean slate now, and that's that makes me feel the the achievements have just coming out and concentrating everything on that French Open and pulling it off I. Know I know it was kind of bittersweet to him. I. Mean obviously a sweet victory, but you could tell how how he was uncomfortable. With celebrating in quite the same way. What an achievement that was. I completely agree with that. I also think just logistically. If, he's going to be going to Australia which he said he is planning to do you have to leave a lot earlier this year to to do two week quarantine when you get that plaza talking about having to leave to go to Australia in mid December had spend Christmas over there. Nadal's Of a family man he he likes being in familiar circumstances I think can settings and if he plays the Oh to that takes him quite late into November he's not then got much time home before we'd have to travel off again. I, think just practically it makes sense for him now to just be at home and then go off to Australia I. Think.
French Open: Rafael Nadal beats Novak Djokovic to win 13th Roland Garros title
"To win this year's French Open. This is an adult twentieth Grand Slam title this Tyson with Roger Federer for the most of all time on the men's side. Match with Jovovich was a landslide yesterday as well. Afterwards, even Jovic. Said Nidal played a perfect match on the women's side unlikely winner came out on top nineteen year old Egos. Phone Tech is ranked fifty fourth and she took home the trophy, her first tour level title she beat the number four seed and the reigning Australian Open champion. YELP is now labeling
The greatness of Rafael Nadal
"We talk about tennis. She was about this final and put it on pitting off having to actually summer. The achievement of rough on the dull winning thirteen, French Open, and winning this French. Open in particular and doing it in the way that he did because. It. So astonishing I'm struggling to process. Frankly, yes. Apologies in advance for hyperbole and use of superlatives, but if you can't use them now when rough on the is now hundred and two girls and has won his thirteenth title when when can use MS utter the extraordinary? What is the chief today, and of course, this is an achievement that is actually fifteen sixteen years in the making it is it is unbelievable. Walk Needle is able to do both in tennis number one, but also just at this tournament, one of his best ever career performances David today. I would say so this was Up there with what he did to federal in two, thousand eight when federal and a handful of games arguably even better I think because federal struggled that day I think the conditions were less suited to today on paper at least I would have thought compared to a high bouncing day in June, and of course, he's you know he's twelve years older I mean, let's not forget. He's thirty four that's that shouldn't be. Put. To one side because you know he's got a lot of miles in those legs lot of kilometers and it's it's just mind boggling that he can physically do it for star I think it bore a lot of similarities to what Jackovitch did to him in the Australian Open file of twenty months ago, which was Jock itch referenced in Oh Sorry Nadal referenced in his post match comments it had that same feel inasmuch as when we were discussing this yesterday and we were building up to it all week long the one eventuality are could not see is one of these destroying the other one that's just could not see I mean, which is again just another example of how good predictions I am. But it was. A performance that I wasn't expecting of that level and that that feels unfetter I found the down after what he's done over the last twelve years but. He lifted himself to a level. We certainly haven't seen at this tournament. And it was this fortnight anyway it wasn't. It wasn't just. Fortunate needlework open happen to be having Berlin day today is it wasn't just what one of these things the way the cookie crumbles he change things in his approach today he was an I believe the stats ended up bearing this out in terms of name body was quitting. On your coverage David about the net clearance on his kind being significantly. Lower today than in previous matches indicating how much more aggressive he was being on that I mean I think on both wings in particular on that on that can side he was. Firmly the aggressor out there in an joke which was on the back foot right from the word go and. He looked. Bewildered by the level throughout, imagine, imagine playing really good tennis and being the world number one. And having lost six love. I just can't I can't imagine how awful that feels. You know I texted you guys. At the end of that first set and I said. Other than serving a bit better. I. Don't know what he can do. I don't think it's a question of just raise the level a bit and that'll be okay. What can he possibly do? Yeah and he's been in his press conference Djokovic and use the word surprised by Nidal's level. I don't think he sold this coming from the doll based on what we've seen from the doll these two weeks. Yes. Nidal's been great. He's the final without dropping a set, but it's clearly not been absolutely top top level in the dull and I'm not sure your conviction was expecting the performance that we saw from the Dell today he was caught off Guard surprise bewildered and that that. is so much credit. As you said to walk in the door was doing he was the aggressor. He was taking every opportunity to hit his forehand down the line and standing up on the baseline and kind of taking the drop shot away from Jackovitch. I'm sure we'll talk more about that but just little subtle changes in his game that he made the just made this huge overall difference and with the intent that he paid with it was it was overwhelming for Novak Djokovic Channon. was kind of reminded of a little quote I read from turning adult recently who often the Schwartzman team match said a lot of people compare team to my nephew. But I, don't think that's a fair comparison. This was in Spanish. This was in the Spanish newspaper El Pice and he was saying that team is a great player, but he doesn't have the options in his game that Nadal has and. The different ways to be able to beat you I. Think this goes back to what we were talking about on a podcast recently when David you said the fact that these players are always adding things today game, the dull Djokovic and Federer, and the Dallas got so many different ways he can beat you. He can change what he does and he did that today and I think it surprised Yovich and It shouldn't be surprising to me, but at the end to us, but it kind of was surprising to see the dull change tactically against your that that rivalry has been so familiar in my head of what that looks like in terms of the patterns of the rallies and this one was different out there nobles the those tactical awareness today was was as good as anything I've ever seen from him. I think
US Open Day 14 - Thiem at last; Zverev devastated
"I'M ALMOST THERE CAN BE A. A third I've just called the name of mine wrong. What was it called ready What's his real name? I'm on my second bid David. Leads you've just opened third Tonia. Catherine. It's an Aq-. It's an Eq-. Right okay. So. Yeah. I'm drinking San Miguel apparently others call semi Guel. Not to worry about three of them. We've just watched the men's singles final. It is the sort of final that makes me feel like I've had about five days. Even if I haven't because it's. A meandering delirious. I don't really know how to sum it up. It was just but. Yeah I'm slightly worried that the match is just a big blur in my mind and I'm going to struggle to talk about what actually happened. I can remember very strongly the feeling of it happening and how I felt watching it. I think that will be etched into my mind forever because it was one of those matches by the end I was just so an egg tense for both players A. But trying to rationalize what happened might be quite a difficult task I think. Is a bit light last year's final when ref on the Dow lead two sets to love and a break. And that looked over and then suddenly it was in a fifth set is it bit lineup? No. I didn't think. It was follow quality I would say. I thought I thought. was really good like the whole time. This one was patchy. But the idea of it being not that interesting because looking like going to be a straight sets win. And then suddenly you don't want the match to end and you wanted to go on forever in that sense, it was similar. But I don't think quality-wise or. Sort of the reasons for why ended up being such a dramatic match were that similar tall I also think that Medvedev's comeback last year was completely unexpected I think again somebody like. Nidal or not somebody like against Nidal, if love down in your first Grand Slam final. Very few people are predicting away back I think even at sets breakdown today. People will. I think most people watching. Were waiting dominate team to wake up and. Waiting for something that felt like, surely, it has to happen surely at some stage today even if it's only. A small research and see and I am a break back pushing the set to a tiebreak. Winning a set. People were waiting to see the real. Dominic team. It felt. It felt like only a matter of time whether he could get it together. In time. Before it was either. But for me, that was quite crucial difference in how this one felt. Lost felt I will remember this match I think in the long run for the final set and for the final set tiebreak but. You can't have that without the other stuff that comes before just two guys. So, let's talk about that talk about the start of the match. And how we it was. It was weird. It was I mean festival Amazon deserve. Totally, different men to the guy who came out against public arena buster looked. Just, totally paralyzed with nerves and unable to play his normal game. He looked free now there for those first two sets, he looked languid he has. He has a languid power. Unlike, anybody else I think when you he said of generates speed of shot whether it's the serve of one hundred and seventy seven miles now or four hundred. That's kind of hit the back fence without you realizing he's actually hit it that hard. I don't think anybody else gives me that. kind of feeling out on the circuit of the moment you can. I can feel the power of everybody else is almost a slight of hand the way he does it, but he was timing the ball way way better and also the intent was there and he was coming into the net I mean the statistics on his net approaches. I think after a sense set in half to gone to the net twenty times. And with some success, he looks uncomfortable at the net, but he was just playing. The odd. So masters using his six foot six inches his wingspan. Great. Get into the net. And Dominic team was absolutely awful.
Tennis adapting to the new normal: French Open 'unilateral' September Switch; 'Flushing-Garros' slams back-to-back?; Laver Cup & ATP/WTA responses analysed; 'Excusez-moi?' Players find out on social media; Tips for fans to cope with no tennis
"Everyone and welcome to the passing Shaw. The tennis poke caused by fans four fans with your host Jolan Kim. Today on the show. We're going to be bringing you up to speed on all the latest developments of the corona virus hit tennis season including the French controversial date change the ATP and WBZ's movement to a collective approach decision making and how players are keeping on their training routines in home. Kim I find this all very surreal. It could have been Indian Wells. Men's Fund will stay. We could have been previewing the AP we could have been. Who knows. Maybe looking forward to Andy Murray in back onto a tennis court but unfortunately sadly all that is on hold seemingly indefinitely a you you in high spirits. Nassir to Joe. I mean I've just it just keeps getting from bad worse doesn't There is just as old ask for control. We company do anything we have to sort of hate for the best and I mean there are things we can do. We can follow advice and stay inside of course but yeah. I would give anything right now just to have. Tennis is a poker it like whoever it is I will. I will accept the crappiest final in Tennessee straight. Means we have lives for again right. I find it quite funny. Actually because even though we no life tennis to kind of talk over there still seems to be actually more tennis news to actually To actually catch up because you know we still had a lot of information. Come at us from the tennis world. some some more surprising than others. And obviously we'll get onto that. Let's just give our listeners on ourselves. Actually a pair of the of the lay of the landscape at the moment the Toys R. Off Indefinitely Think. Officially at the moment they've been suspended to the seventh of June which is basically ruled out. Oh Clay Court tennis. So we've had all the tournaments in Madrid Rome Strasbourg Rats Munich astro Geneva Leon who whites from the calendar ranking points have been frozen as well so yeah we've got no. I got life headed to come to full with T. But when this was kind of announced I think the big the big talker boy it just the state the announcement was the that the ATP at W. Ta said now is the time to act unilaterally. Kim But in unison. Yeah so I mean they overeat out what they said. And I'll see if our listeners can notice what's missing so auden all decisions related to the impact of the creative. Irs Require Consultation and review with the stakeholders in the game view that is shared by ATP WPA the ANC tennis Australia and the USDA. So Joe. What's missing from US announcement. I think that I think maybe the French tennis federation a missing. I I have no idea why that is the case. They could have been because they went compete. Ray who can just reschedule tournament at the top of a heart without telling anyone our consulting anyone involved in which is going to be a might have something to do with it. I think I've eaten. What bold move. I mean understand that they obviously won't let on to happen at some point and is obviously wasn't going to really happen you know saying it's the it's the next. Grand Slam in the calendar but the decision they took was just so so rash and they've moved to the most awkward position arguably in the calendar. You know just all for the USA. But I think there's about six days in between the end of the US Open. Stop the French Open. This is all hypothetical oversee. None of this may happen and from what I've read from some circles. It's unlikely that we'll probably have any tennis the rest of the year. I don't know I mean. I'm hoping that's not the case. Obviously but all of the kind of ramifications. Ooh Who's GonNa play what what's going to happen like might be null and void because they might white everything a. Let's let's say hypothetically that it does. Let's say the French will go ahead in September? I think the dates they have said at the moment it will take place is September twentieth to the Fourth of October. First of all clay-court Teddy's at that time. That's not going to be fun is it? Yeah it's going to be very cold. I mean even wrote on Garza's on end of May beginning of genie's they can have some terrible weather and to be fed they do have the reef but also there wouldn't be any legal tournaments in in-involved say people would be coming in like fresh off the hard courts Without any practice unless they choose to focus just on the clay and took themselves off to some challenger events or futures the because I think those things they could probably arrange you know in advance kind of place at the time to kind of set them out for like practice. I think they're easier to kind of just put on a shorter natives. But it's just yeah. I mean what you do for example if you're if you're a rapper. He's defending the US. Open defending the French shape in this year. Does he just play both and hope he can defend both? Does he pick one over the other. It's just the strangest decision and we've never seen this happened before but it's is just I mean. Would that be the most remarkable achievement if someone one base of as black tobacco? We've talked about someone winning the French Open and Wimbledon boxy. There's still a gap of several weeks between those two but and that's obviously not being done an awful lot so this would be some fate if it was a chief. Yeah I mean certainly. I think it's still by the the PA. The calendar is obese. Like a back to back grand slams. We've got the sunshine double. It did well by. Abby is you've got the I coined it on twitter at the the flushing guerrillas days It's certainly that that would be a challenge for I mean for a lot of players especially for someone like Nidal. He is the defending champion in both of them. Both events would be taken enormous toll on the body. And you know we've seen you know the big three that approach to the season to take kind of a stripped back approach pick and choose events and it does it does bring up the question of you know if that does go ahead and you have back to back Grand Slams. Is it possible to debate for which you have to watch? You have to be really refocused and just say I'm going to do one or the other and you think that potentially from the Dow I would just focus on on the French Open as it would pay me to say given defended the US Open champion. Ba Yeah it feels like just focus on on one. I mean he would be the history again at the friendship going. Thirteen to add. It would be great if he could win at different times of the year when the conditions that may be different because that would just I guess ultimately proved that Hey I am totally trae anytime of the year. I will be there at the top so you'd have to think he would go for the French over the US. But I mean another thing. Is that depending on. When or if the season comes back like players will have had a long spell of time. You know in competition say they might be much fresher healthier and injury free so it might not matter too much in terms of the toll on their bodies as if this is happening at the end of animals is not that we would see this kind of contrast normally it might be the impact might be lessened somewhat because of that. But I mean who say. We haven't mentioned that it will say clashes with the Labor cop which is technically an exhibition right. It's not like a proper event but basically all the top names you know have signed up and committed to playing and all the tickets have been sold. Yeah sold out. It's being held in Boston. Which is I guess. A logical place to for them to get off the Apron said exhibition senior team world. Lovely what will I mean tires on surely going to pick that over the friendship? And but it's
Racing Without Gambling
"I'm guessing you've heard of the Kentucky Derby Abi to this race that's run usually early in May we haven't yet talked about the Kentucky Derby this year but that's about to change as we're finally starting to get into rounds of prep races that will winnow the field down to twenty for the run for the roses on May the second so to help us do that. We bring in voice. We haven't heard on this show for too long and and that's Jonathan Listener who writes for horse racing nation. Welcome back Jonathan. So before we get into a few specific horses. WHO's impressed you the most so far on the triple triple crown trail? I think Dennis moment to start the list. Dentists moment strikes to lead right at the top of the stretch at Delta. Two lanes lead our three lately for the final final furlong. Dennis this moment with five length lead scabbard with clear sailing up the second but Dennis moment kicks off the road at the Kentucky Derby in a big way. He barely moved a muscle. That we we have it. RESTRAINING NATION DOT COM user generated Kentucky Derby contender rankings and despite his trouble that experience career dentist moment has not left that number. One spot. You talking about a grade three winner. Who was going to be the favourite the Breeders Cup Juvenile L. Stumbles out of the gate? You know he could be undefeated if you look back at his debut he lost his jockey was really no fault zone so he has the two losses and between between them. He's sandwich to really really nice. Looking victories including his debut at Ellis Park they won by like nineteen and a quarter lengths. I think it was so there's a lot of potential there and he's one that I feel like every once in a while you hear about a derby prospect before they make their debut and then we kind of latch onto them I wanna say it was probably roadster roadster last year because Baffert said he could be his next justify American Farrow and obviously it didn't work out there but they'll Romans has talked up Dennis's moment since before he he ran a race. And so we're we're kind of going to the same thing here As far as a couple of other runners eight rings also out of the Breeder's cup juvenile. He's a really interesting. One didn't really run his race. You know the last time we saw him but I think the way he's going to be handled this season. You have to keep paying attention trained by Bob Baffert. He's he's GonNa run him in the rebel at Oaklawn. And then the Arkansas Derby potentially there as well and then another one that you know kind of on the fence about that you know. He's got a lot of towns. Is Max `field scratched from the Breeders Cup Juvenile. He had a little bit of an issue. There it turns out we found out a couple of weeks after that that he had had a minor surgery for a bone chip. But he's not even in serious training now. Well he's he's he's apparently galloping No works yet and so I think they'll have to do the to A. Ah kind of schedule where you hope to get race out of them and then you have a more serious race which I would expect to be something like the blue grass stakes if everything works out well and he's undeniable town. I'm and I think he's GonNa win a major race somewhere down the road. I don't know if it's going to be the Kentucky Derby and then the other one I feel like it's gotten all the conversation is independence hall at at Independence Hall now makes his move. Independence Hall is the leader getting away to lead by two prints of Pharaohs has moved up on the outside. It's Bourbon Bay Independence All L. linked and a half as they come for the quarto prints of Pharaohs on the outside Bourbon Bay. It is independence hall with the lead and now a furlong to the finish Jose Ortiz showing them the whip now goes to work on independence hall. WHO has a three likely? Just a sixteen to the finish at. It's the constitution called Independence Hall. Tailwind Jerome by four Knights won the national stakes by open links came back and won the jerome. It was a little more workmanlike. But he's going to go. Oh into the new year here as another one of the favorites and if I could talk about one more that has sort of attracted my attention a little bit. It's this ancient warrior horse. I don't know what his path is going to look like. He's Jerry Hall android or for trainee. And if you follow racing at all the last year or so. You'll know that. He's SORTA become embattled. Dan from the strike. Group's tracks out in California But I of all these horses that have won maiden races and we'll be going to the stakes. I want to watch that one closely. He's moved him over to Oakland Park. We should see him in an allowance. Race coming up at the beginning of February and then from then on he should be on the Derby trail else. That's one that that I definitely want to see more of well. You mentioned Bob Baffert. And it's tough to talk about the Kentucky Derby Trail Without Bob Baffert and he has a lot more than the one you mentioned. There's thousand words who ran a big race in the low sal futurity. I'm a Roger Federer Fan but you have to give it up for an doll who is also ambassador trainee. Who looked really really good? So I mean you know Bob Baffert certainly knows how to get horses to the Derby mean how many of these prospects aspects of pan out. I see a path for all of them. To be honest. You know and we also have mentioned authentic. It's still authentic coming to the three the eight ball. He's been in control throughout leads by a length and a half to uncaptured hero. It's all authentic as they pass the quarter pole and turned for home authentic and complete Khaliq Command turning it on. He's in front by sex with a furlong left to go. Zimba Warrior and Assault Coast as authentic is putting on a show. Here is a little green gene shifting about but long gone authentic strolls home in the sham. He'll win by about eight lakes green. It's Grafton stretch and just kept going there and another extremely impressive Horse Nidal I. I wonder about him a little bit. You know we've only seen him one time on Sunday and that six and a half for a long race he he looks like Dortmund Ortmann if you go back to two thousand fifteen big horse. That wasn't extremely fast out of the gate but once he got into stride he went straight to the pace and never really let up there. Yeah it's not not really the kind of horse you want to win the Derby but I think you could get to the Derby and then thousand words certainly has every reason to move forward his last race. I think they had probably a little bit the too much blinker on him and he ended up going head to head with that no door that ran in the Breeders Cup juvenile second. I think it's SORTA legitimize both of those horses that they ran so closely in the future. But I think thousand words is probably at least a couple of lengths better then a no door. He just probably didn't see him in the stretch until Flavian Kinda guided him out and it's like Oh with the blinker. The horse realized he had something to run against a win on. So I guess when you talk about horses that I'm looking at in the new year. Thousand Words is definitely on that shortlist list to Jonathan Listener of racing. Nation is with us here on the gate. We've talked a little bit about the Breeders Cup juvenile which was a topsy turvy race. You had three big horses that we've mentioned into all had their problems that day. We haven't talked about the horse. Who Wanted Storm the court for trainer Peter Martin and that would be a very popular win in the racing business? As you know what chance do you give storm the court to back up what he did in the juvenile. Oh probably not much not a lot of black type in the family. I'm not sure if there's any black type from Stanley I'd agree wise. And then you know he was obviously the beneficiary of other horses stumbles in that race You Know He. He goes gate to wire was not really pressed a whole lot and at the same time. I think they took the blinker. They put their blinkers on. I'm sorry and I have not a fan of lemon. That put blinkers was on a horse at that point in their career. I feel like you should be taken them off so that they can relax. Prepare to go a little bit longer. I think that race and the circumstances just all all came together for storm the court and allowed him to upset that race. It's forty five to one. Whatever he ended up that day I'm sort of in agreement? I think with everybody else that the the the better Derby Derby prospect was no door and second in that race going forward. I want to mention because these races have just happened. Enforceable label for Mark Cassie. Who is not missed? A beat after a son norm went out on his own. He had been his father's chief assistant and enforceable. Really good winning the Lecomte. But we haven't seen too many Lecompte winners. Go on to run well in the Kentucky Derby. Where do you put me as a tap it colt out of a dixie union in marriage? The breeding is good. I put him a really high on my list. As far as forces will be in the Derby but I would not put him on my list of forces that I think can win the Derby and I say that because of his running style you know if we go back to almost every year that the point system has been effect and obviously gets rid of those pure your sprinters. It's the horses that can put themselves near the front at the beginning of the race and keep that pace up and never be caught by closers that tend to win the Derby enforceable enforceable is one of those closers. It's inevitable that he's GONNA run into traffic problem you know. I almost hope he sneaks into the Derby and everybody overlooks. Because I feel like he's the kind of horse could come into the super factor. That's probably going to be a really common line of thought. Though I mean I'm thinking a few months out but the soup perfect You know in the era of a favorites winning the Derby is as remain because it's pretty high minimum of really profitable wager for people nonetheless so yeah for me.

"Sports betting as Kenny learn the hardway is about out having as much information as possible before you bet or having friends who will share information with you go on so tennis sports bettors unlike Kenny. We have found this way to maximize the information they get do under the secret y-yeah you physically go to the match. Oh like be there live in person right right because if you're at home watching on TV there's a delay wait for like the umpire to press the button to get the score in but if you were there live you know before everybody else and so gamblers actually hire people to go to matches. They're called court ciders and I heard about them from this tennis journalist Ben Rothenberg. If you're courtside or you go to a tennis match you sit sit there and you push a button each time so I went to the point. If player a wins the point you press one button to player. B wins the point. You press another button. So are you telling me that it is somebody's job job to fly around the world and watch tennis matches and unlike press a button on their phone. That's a that is a job. Somebody could have right. You're in Monaco one week here in Madrid the next week come moths or what are we doing. Radio Okay so ben says there is a downside to this job. which is that tennis officials? Do not like anything that has to do with gambling. Is it feel icky as they make this kind of slippery slope argument where today maybe you're just sending scores tomorrow. Maybe you're like offering a player a bribe to take take a dive why that seems like quite a quite a slope but okay so what is developed is this kind of cat and mouse game right on one side. You've got the court. CIDERS sitting in the stands ends drying to send their updates on the other side. You've got the the officials from the tennis tournament trying to stop them. So at any given tournament match there will be people who are called spotters who are surveying the crowd walking around taking looks looking at their book of faces that people thin apprehended or who are known court ciders and matching people up so ben was at this tournament in Charleston and he actually saw one of these court ciders getting taken out by the security guard though and they sort of pinned him to the ground and I noticed that he had a wig wig that had fallen off his wig. We're kind of a WIG. was that was like a long hair. He said it was just like some cheap halloween week. It was obviously like Lens. It came off CERTA. The JIG was up ten system odd characters but even by those standards that was that was pretty strange. What is interesting to me about. What's going on. Here used to be the way you made money. If you're a tennis association was you sold Broadcasting Rights Yeah but then a few years ago they figured out hey we can sell the score the data rate we can sell forty fifteen forty thirty deuce right. We can sell that on to gambling websites to news sites okay A. and if I'm running a gambling website I'm obligated to do that otherwise my thing isn't going to work exactly but the court siders then are in direct competition with that stream of data there pirating the data the tennis organization would argue right then. It's a strange thing from a more free speech point of view honestly and here's a legal question. I mean I'm at a match and talking to you on the foam at the match and say Hey Nidal's up to one in the first set. I can't imagine that I'm breaking any rule by doing that. But the tennis this data rights police would say that you were in fact they say it right on the ticket if you go to the US Open the fine print on your ticket said something about how you are not allowed to transmit information for gambling purposes if they catch you court citing they kick you out. If you come back they will charge you with trespassing. His name is a casino that kicks people after counting cards. Counting Card is not against the law but it is against the House rules the Casino and tennis tournaments have that same kind of casino ethos that's when it comes to court

He can make you miss without your understanding how you just missed you. Miss shots that you don't mess. That's deep kind of. I watched medvedev in d._c. So i have a good sense of how well the dude is playing but i it didn't know before i saw a pretty oblique tweet on sunday. Is that three years ago medvedev was defaulted from a match on the second tier challenger tour. You're in a match which was played on clay and savannah georgia medvedev. Who was then ranked number. Two hundred sixty in the world was playing donald young young as a black american can player in the first at the chair umpire. A black woman in sandy franch went down to the court to check the ball mark on shot medvedev hit. There was close to the sideline. She called the ball out giving young the point which led medvedev mark. I know that you are friends. I am sure about it. After the game was over french called over tournament supervisor advisor medvedev was quickly defaulted for what the united states tennis association later referred to as questioning the impartiality of the umpire based on her race. There is unfortunately precedent for that incident in two thousand one. Australian lleyton hewitt claimed that a black line judge at the u._s. Open was calling foot-faults on him to to favor hewitt's black opponent american james blake. I've only been foot-faulted of one end. Look at him. Look at him. Look at him. Mate hugh had said look at him. I and you will tell me what the similarity is. Get him off. The court. Look at what he's done. Hewitt was not penalized during a match or afterwards the u._s.

I'm not racial any way at all. Though hewitt didn't get sanctioned. John mcenroe called his on-court statement unforgivable. It has indeed followed hewitt for his whole career areo still hear people mention it when hewitt's name comes up medvedev's words have gotten less attention because they came in a minor league event probably also because he wasn't yet well known when it happened as far as i know medvedev has never commented on this <hes> the incident did get brought up in two thousand seventeen when at wimbledon medvedev eh opened his wallet and started throwing coins at the base of the umpire's chair to make a not so subtle point about the empires bias alleged bias towards his opponent it

Different standards for women and men in tennis?
"And this we didn't get a chance or I didn't get a chance to talk about this. Serena Williams things that Serena Williams thing that happened over the weekend. The outburst at the US open, and it is driving me nuts. People on social media driving. The absolutely crazy. What has transpired at the US open. Okay. So if you weren't watching, and you don't know what happened? And. Yeah. By by the way, just to clarify we have coach Tony Sanchez coming up at six thirty by the way, six thirty. Tony Sanchez leading producer now. Now, we're not calling Tony now. So Serena Williams got three penalties. And I'm going to go over this in a second. But we have everyone on MSNBC and CNN calling racism and feminism, and it is driving me through a wall. Okay. One woman. Her name is Alina Maxwell. And she's she does show on Sirius XM, and she's been all over the TV. She says that black women have a right to be angry at how the world mistreats and dehumanizes us that has absolutely positively nothing to do with what happened to Serena Williams at the US open. I'll explain that in a second. But let me go on with this clown who was on MSNBC yesterday. She goes on to say as a black woman, if I speak up to lobby I know, I'll be perceived as hysterical or aggressive, the stereotype of the angry black woman and she's making. I'm sure that happens in other everyday life. But this has nothing to do with Serena Williams and her whole piece is about Serena Williams. Serena went on to say, this has happened to me too many times, you know, how many times men do much worse than I did. Well, Serena did threaten somebody's life linesman at the US open several years back. So Serena has a history. Let me tell you something for people that haven't done any homework has clearly this moron that was on NBC yesterday. And some of these other networks people calling racism and feminism what? Serena Williams, did let me let me just educate some of these idiots who know nothing nothing about what they're talking about. They want to make this a race issue. Okay. This unpire Ramos. He's given the same type penalties to Rothley on the Dow and Novak Djokovic in the last couple of years, in fact, Nidal about this unpire, I believe he said, quote, he is a stickler for the rules. So Serena should know that this guy has a history of being a stickler of the roles now, let's break this down real quick. And I'd love somebody to call up and call me a racist. Please do I would love to debate you on this because anyone who's speaking out about Serena acting like a buffoon. People are calling them racist number to call to five seven five three nine six the first penalty that Serena Williams got over the weekend. Was coaching her coach was giving her hand signals whether she was watching it or whether she used that is not that's not the point. The point is is that if you are coaching it is a penalty. And if you wanna make the argument that they're not consistent with it. Then blame the other empires. But this guy is consistent with it. That's all that matters. So that was the first warning. Okay. Then Serena got a point penalty for breaking her racket. A clearly clearly breaking the rules. You're not allowed to do that. So they take a point away from her. And then she calls this guy Rommel's Aligarh, and then she makes it personal with him. I thought he was going to give her another penalty right there game penalty. Then she calls him a thief. So what does he do? He does exactly the appropriate thing that you are supposed to do take some other penalty from her and that is a game. And then everyone is up in arms, and she starts crying and cotton puts up a temper tantrum, but an eight year old wouldn't even put up and then people are saying that it had to do with her race. Or it was sexism, look if you wanna make the argument that the rules should change. If you wanna make the argument that coaching should be allowed. I don't have a problem with that. But guess what the rules are in place. Now, if you wanna make the argument that you should be allowed to break your racket in the game and not get a penalty for that. I wouldn't have a problem with that. But the rules are set in place for a reason. And after she got a warning she clearly should have been able to control her emotions she wasn't able to do that. And that's the difference between what they're talking about with some of these men, and what she did what most of these men when they get a penalty they stop. She was unable to stop. And then after it drives me nuts in her press conference. And never my out about tennis J D as I am about this issue as you can tell we don't do a lot of tennis on the show. But this drives me nuts when people play the race card because she was a woman it had absolutely nothing to do with that in the press conference. Serena said, well, I'm standing up for women's rights. And I'm I'm standing up, she took no responsibility for anything. She did. It was deplorable. It was disgusting. And I would love to talk to anybody out there that disagrees with me anybody out there that think this umpire Ramos did anything wrong anybody out there thinks this was sexism anybody out there who thinks that Rama's did this because she is an African American woman. I would love to hear from you or people that agree with me as well. But you know, I there were a few people on national TV Stephen a Smith being one of them who I usually disagree with ninety nine percent of the time. But he was on my side on this one. But there's so many people out there. That are calling

Follow on social media is Phil Mickelson. He literally just joined Twitter two weeks ago. And he's hysterical. He posts all kinds of cell fees and videos, that's what he does. And he's a goof. Football, which you may know, if you followed him over the course of his career, he generally wears that same Smirke grin on his face all the time, and he's pretty comfortable in his own skin, and he'll make fun of himself. His latest tweet was a picture. I mean, he looks like he's trying to imitate. A biker who's very patriotic. He's riding his Harley to the Ryder Cup. If you could it's in Paris. So I guess he can't. But he's so funny. And I'm glad that we have him on Twitter because he makes me laugh every time he tweets, and he's big into it. He tweets all the time. He tweets before practice rounds and before he goes out and compete, and then he'll post videos of all kinds. You know? I just think it's a lot of fun. It's refreshing when someone new discovers social media, and does it take himself or herself too seriously? Who is your favorite athlete? Follow on. Social media doesn't have to be Twitter. It can be Facebook. It can be Instagram. It can be Snapchat because there are some athletes who also use Snapchat to keep up with their fans and their followers. So who's your favorite athlete? Follow on social media, specifically athletes here, and I don't care if it's a retired athlete anyone who's played a professional sport. That's what I'm looking for.

It was tense. It was dramatic and Rafia Rafael Nidal survived. He did. But it was a tie. Break that went back and forth back and forth against team. It was a really compelling match on back to back nights. We've had Roger Federer and Rafael doll engaged in some very dramatic tiebreaks to determine their fate Rafa is the defending champ at the US open. He has advanced to the semifinals. And then we had the defending champ on the women's side loose Sloan Stevens out already, but Serena Williams has vanished. And so you still have some of the big names not all of them. But some of the big names like Novak Djokovic Rafa and Serena who are still alive. What are the things that I've noticed about this particular US open, and I get all the media alerts because I do have a credential for the open they have set attendance records on three separate days during the course of this particular US open. We're we're talking about crowds of over seventy thousand one day seventy thousand people going through the gate at Flushing Meadow to attend one day. Day of the US open. So was a couple of different sessions. It's day and night sessions. Although I think they're about to be done with that now. And so it's really popular despite the heat, and there have been heat indices and heat warnings well up over a hundred when you consider the humidity there actually, instituted extra breaks for the athletes during the during the course of their matches. If they go four sets in the case of the men, they allow them to take an extra break because it's been such extreme heat and humidity, and yet still there are thousands and thousands of people tuning out in droves. And so that's that's one thing that you may have missed the last couple of nights is these two matches with Roger Federer getting upset and then Ross dolls surviving and advancing in the wee hours his match literally his match point that he converted to advance happened. Right. As we took the airwaves three hours ago. So. It's the capacity talk more for people who live on Pacific time for sure. What does this say my, computer? The capacity of the stadium was twenty three thousand. So Arthur ash stadium. Yes. Okay. Right. But but my point is that there are seventy thousand people going through the gate. So there are other stadiums there besides Arthur ash, and there are day sessions, and there are nights sessions and people will show up, and they'll watch practices or their watch doubles or the watch the action on the other courts. They have girls and boys tournaments that are taking place. So it's not just the matches that are taking place on Arthur ash stadium court so yes three consecutive days. But three days over the course of the first week and a half of the US open. They've set attendance records, meaning the number of people through the gate. There are now up over seventy thousand on one day and over Labor Day weekend, which included their military appreciation day, they had more than two hundred thousand fans over the course of Labor Day weekend. So tennis has been really good is the last major of the year in golf. There's also a lot of people that are really interested in what happens this month. And that's because the Ryder Cup is the last event coming up this month in Paris, France. And we now know that there will be the. The old guard represented because both Tiger Woods, and Phil Mickelson have been anointed. As members of the Ryder Cup team for Phil as I was just talking about. Posted the picture of him as a biker a Harley biker with the American flag theme, he's been all in on. How important it was for him to extend his streak? So he's been on every Ryder Cup teams nineteen ninety-five. But he indicated even before Jim furic made his picks that this particular Ryder Cup was one that would be more significant for him. Because of the fact that it's in Paris, and he so desperately wants to be part of a US team that wins on European soil. And so he had had kind of gone on on a mini campaign to tout himself the way that he's putting which I found somewhat humorous considering what did he make headlines for the US open because he putted badly on the tenth. All remember. He hit a moving putt. He got so frustrated that he went around the ball was going down the hill. And he smokes it back up the hill before it stopped moving. Yeah. He's putting so well that share except that what do we know about him the highlight of the year for Phil Mickelson is the fact that he hit a moving of the US open because he got frustrated, but it's Phil Mickelson. It's Tiger Woods. Who hasn't been on a Ryder Cup team as a player in six years going back to two thousand twelve and then Bryson d Shambo who earned his way onto this team? With back to back wins to start the FedEx Cup playoffs. And so you would think that Jim uric has got a big grin on his face after making three of his four captain's picks we talked about all year, we were looking for a number of different things, but players that had a good body of work that he played good the season players that were in good form. You know, we're headed over to Europe we're heading over into. Foreign soil. It's going to be an interesting crowd. They're boisterous. I have a lot of respect for them. And we're looking for players that we thought would would handle that situation. Well, and it would thrive would love the challenge ahead of him. And I think these three players that's what we've done hasn't been part of the team playing wise for six years and served as vice captain a couple of years ago. And that was absent credible will be part of the team part of these young guys and to try to help help them. In any way, shape or form. I could whether it was with pairings spikes, or sandwiches, water, whatever they needed. I was there and this year to have the honor Bill play again as. Is beyond special. Everything means so much more to tiger now that he's had it taken away. And now that he's gone through a stretch when he wasn't sure he'd ever be able to play golf again so graduations to those threes. So even as football the juggernaut is about to return poised to return tomorrow night with the season opener the the Super Bowl champion almost at World Series the Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles hosting the Atlanta Falcons, even as they get back on the field the big dogs the cash cow because that's what the NFL is. It's not going to be a one and done scenario. In fact, the NFL's not going to be able to hog the covers if you know what I mean, they're going to have to share with golf with tennis because there are a lot of great storylines and headlines coming from both of those sports NASCAR is going into its playoff as well. And then we can't forget about major league baseball this week right now we've got three theories that pit curried playoff teams against one. Another. And really because we're now into the final month with what twenty four ish games to go. Give or take a couple. You're talking about scoreboard watching to the max, which is so cool. So yes, we're psyched about football. We're gonna talk about some football coming up. You're welcome. But Roger Goodell and the NFL has to share some of the spotlight at least for now, and we're inside of a month until the puck drops on the NHL regular season. Not to mention the NBA with way, who's that guy who went to LA. I mean, I'm going to need some rosters to keep up with all the free agents.

"Ahead of him what would what would the tennis fan wanna put djokovic ahead of nidal too i'm not i'm not versed in tennis enough to give you the clearcut answer there i know that on a sunday morning wear were still in the summer or their snow like football threegame on we're still early enough in baseball season where your team you'll watch their games but i doubt like the morning of you've got anything ritually going on with them nba finals in stanley cup final wrapping up us open next week that will give you some good that'll be alive sporting event in the morning or early afternoon that'll be worth watching i would i would i would say this even if i were doing this show today i would probably water watch some of the french open final because nidal what nidal us about to do i'm willing to convince myself or close to convinced i won't see something like this again so getting back to what i said earlier this hour the belmont stakes i've seen a triple crown winner now i appreciate horse racing but i love it there are certain things about it i don't care for it's not a sport to me that really grabs me outside of the cultural event that is the kentucky derby so when i put the belmont stakes on if i do it it's more because there's a either nothing else on on board or i bet on it like it's not because i'm super excited to watch it like i've been waiting all day for up in ninety nine percent of the time i would say that about a tennis sporting event to but this to me just seems this to be almost seems like it's under the radar today and it shouldn't be but we have somebody going for ten major championships in one major no one's even close to that in french open history so i'm already looking at some of my tweets on this on the doll from tennis fans not that there are many who i i'm looking at what amounts like four or five tweets on this i don't wanna make it sound like a there's an avalanche of comments that have come.
