"They could beat Pete Sampras when he was a kid. He was that good of a player. He's up on his toes. Always on the toes. Always, you know, not happy feet, but always moving. Love like Peyton Manning played were always up on his feet. Some guys playing more flat footed he was up on his toes. But I do think on the end of it, it was run. Here. Too bad injuries. Aaron Donald got him in L a early in the 19 year. The thumb injury. He was never the same player after that, and I think that's why you know he lost that ball to Neil Hunter. You were talking about earlier, John. He's the guy that knocked the ball away from him. If that doesn't happen, I think they win that game. The 40 Niners after deal in New Orleans and the NFC championship game, and that Green Bay And I think the 40 Niners could have beat him, obviously, but that was a hell of a shootout in the George Kittle game. What a game That was. M Breeze was just incredible in that game, and there were times getting ready for that game where I thought, you know, after the Aaron Donald Thumb injury, he's just not the same player. And in that game, he went off. But the Tom did crop up at the wrong moment and heard him and then Last year, conceiving a straight just let laid him out. And I think hey, was not the same player after that. And he did not play well, his last game against Tom Brady. He was poor. Although if Jared Cook doesn't fumble Antoine Winfield, you know next up all out. The young linebackers scoops it up for Champa changes the whole thing. White, but there was a reason he only won one super on it would be hard on the guy. But I think in the biggest games against the best competition On it, You know, obviously the Super Bowl. He was able to get over on on that one. And they won the NFC championship game against far in Minnesota. But there were there were moments. Just these. These games come down to one or two plays here and there. And I think his lack of size really did. Come into play at the very biggest moment seems orbital able to overcome it. Super Bowl 44 win the N V P of that game. But I think he's a great player and I'll judge him is the most precise, the most accurate not just accurate but pinpoint Accuracy. Coach Walsh would have loved him. But there were times where you know, being under six ft. Tall You heard him at the ultimate, You know, Final moment. Big play moment to win big playoff games. It did. It did cost him, You know, more playoff victories now. The one thing I'll say and then we've got Matt barrels, joining us and we get the latest on the 40 Niners and free agency. No. Nobody of seems to have learned from Jason Witten because you're giving him the Notre Dame gig. He's not over the out spoken. He's a really nice guy who, as far as I can tell, we'll see when he gets behind a Mike. Doesn't really like to criticize plays or players on then you're gonna put him on Sunday night, too. I just think he's a really nice guy who's very knowledgeable about the game. But that doesn't make him great. And you're putting me on two really big stages. You put him on Notre Dame football, and you put them on the Sunday night broadcast with no experience. I'm not a fan of that. We saw it with Jason Witten. And I don't know. Maybe he'll be great right of the gate. But I don't see it. He doesn't have the personality of a Tony Rome or something like that. They're going to give this to him right away. We've seen it. Plus, you gotta know how much make up or you're gonna have to buy Tolo deal with Mola Mola Mola mola moving, You know that's gonna be an issue. No, I said no to your football's big, but it's not like Monday night football. Jason Witten was nervous and he was tight and I know I think Breeze will play with a little more. I think it's a smart if you throw him right into Sunday night football. That would be tough and replace Collinsworth. But there I think they did it right. And I think part of it. What's his deal with NBC? Because he signed that a year ahead of time. You know, there's futures contracts in the NFL is the first time I heard of a futures contract at the network level like that, and they're always looking at guys. I'm sure they were looking at Peyton Manning, but they offered in the contract when he was still playing. I think they probably thought he was going to retire last year, and Brady would have wound up in New Orleans. How would that have changed? The league right now, but I think he's doing it smart. He's not going right into Sunday night. It is Notre Dame, but it's not Sunday night or Monday night Football. Work with to Rico for a year and then then you can assess John and then you know how good would he be in the studio Studios hard? You know, doing games is one thing, but when they put that camera, I think we'll be fine you think will be better than Jason Witten. Morning. E think there's got to be said with a low bar. I'm sorry, Jason. The truth. That's a local girl. Where's holder of a car Nobuko who could ever gonna hear just keep by the way? That's the one thing I would tell him to. Don't know. Personality wise what He's gonna be like His hair is thinning. Just let it go. Just let it go. Like what Whitney did with his hair was like what is going on. And then then he went back. The Raiders is bald again, like just just kind of like Bella checks checkbook. Just let it go, Mommy. Oh, he's on the edge protecting.

"pete sampras" Discussed on The Tennis Podcast
"In my memory. and yeah i mean. I came out that matching sort of as a fan of his in celebration but in some shock and desperate for everybody that had doubted he had something to him to see. It was the only one in the room. And i still the only one in the room at the end of the match and i wanted to said. I haven't really got anybody that was interested in tennis. I had a great friend. Alex who still friends with today. Who i who are through university within a massive tennis fan. But he couldn't stand pete sampras and we would have these rows in the pub manhattan and he's a friend of mine but he would not have it and then. This is the moment that i think at least made him realize you know like most people in the world who at least watched you could. You cannot watch that. And not feel for him in those moments and and it wasn't it wouldn't have a happy ending. You know it was paid sampras. Bait michael chang andre agassi in the final he was. I mean i guess he was fantastic year and he was he was he. He might have beaten pete. Even if sampras was fully charged but sampras was just so emotionally and physically spent ready by the time the final the then after the first two cents it wasn't that competitive and then sampras one of the big titles. I remember when he won the us open later that year and he turned the tables need beat agassi in the us. Open final. There's a moment and stifling responses that his book that he he looks at the camera in victory when he sits on his seat and looks at the camera which is close up on him and he says into the camera. I'll see you in a couple of days. Tim and references playing that. I'm going to take some money off you on the gulf coast. And then he tears up again just very close you just see that that would have been september. Nineteen ninety-five And in nineteen ninety. Six tim. gullikson died In the spring of that year And off that was the one year of course when in his run of seven wimbledons. it was interrupted. You didn't win. Wimbledon that year ninety-six bayton by richard cry. But he had his very best run in the french open. Got in the semifinals beat career. Who is obviously the the on on play. Beat said you bulgaria. He said you began and career over five sets who had won the last four french opens between them and he beat them both. So i did think this is. He was carried. I think by the emotion of thinking about tim. Gullikson had recently passed away and eventually ran out of gas in the semi's and he was beaten by you have kafelnikov but Yeah he was always my favorite player in the mid nineties and that moments is just one i will never forget. How did you feel watching. It's it's without doubt. One of the most extraordinary passages of sport i've ever seen. I think i expect to to feel inappropriate almost watching it as though with bearing witness to this intimate moment of of a great champion as david said exposed and yet maybe maybe it's in hindsight. But i think the actual act of seeing pete sampras play through that and defiant through that and hit aces equalier quaden inspiring watch It's sad but it's quite inspiring. I it made me think a little bit of that. That video package that the atp the wpa put together a few weeks ago now talking about tennis using the language of life and tennis with its rhythms reflecting life. And i think that that idea has never been more on display than in than in those seventy eight minute twice emphasis serving through his tears. Because you know in in tennis just as in life you there were there were these kind of polls is but you have to pick yourself up again and again summon yourself get yourself and to watch some pursue that point off. The point is is an extraordinary feat yukon. You can't be subbed off. You come to hide among teammates. He's out there alone. Having to play world class tennis while he's sopping weeping uncontrollably and yet he does manage to control his tennis. It's it's extraordinary. I don't know how he did it. And yeah so. I was left with this conflicted feeling of it. Both being really sad really you know gut wrenching and yet at the same time inspiring I oversee i knew with that chapter. David talk about it. I think i'd may be seen a clip of its before I think my my parents and my family were into tennis that time but it was. It was when i was too young. And before i before i got into. It's all i was in the magog tennessee's just this thing that i'm subjected to all the time in my family Phase so watching watching the full passage if play during which impresses is is weeping is really quite arresting to watch. I had no idea how it was. And i feel like there's this moment where he just sort of gives into it and succumbs kind of accepts this is uncontrollable He looks kind of confused by the stalled and he's of united takes a moment to get to the back and he's wiping his eyes and takes his time before service serving. But then i it looks like there's a moment where he sort of accepts. This isn't this isn't going to stop. This is out of my out of my hands in kind of his. Mary summed up. He's he's the guy that's not east to things being of his hands and an out of his control and he's not used to emotion that powerful and to see that to see that surrender in him is is really something and then to see it reversed as quickly as it is by that comment from from jim career which i think was well intentioned with the benefit. Hindsight does look a bit misjudged. But i think it's entirely possible that he didn't quite understand what was going on the other end of the court lookie he absolutely knew about tim. Gullikson more so than if the observers would have nine about tim gullikson but that doesn't mean that he necessarily had the emotional intelligence or awareness in that moment of battle to really be in tune with. With what pete sampras going going through especially as you know he's friends with pete sampras and and you know we all knew him to be this kind of emotionless type robotic person. He knew that kind of better than anyone more intimately than anyone so. It's possible that he was. I mean i have a it does. It does look misjudged in reflect. Goldman was the crowd laughed. And i don't think he intended the crowd to live such. You know..

"So the slam immediately prior to this australian open a suffered a shock defeat in the fourth round to jamie is zelda hunt hymie easier. Oh my gosh okay. Isn't he always comes up in the atp media notes as the shortest player to reach the quarterfinals before schwartzman or some something like that i think same same height. That's why i know that that name written down because dna fun to watch thinking a single handed back end and yeah. I remember watching that match. Open-mouthed in shock and distressed that my favorite player is high may easier music z z from peru correct. Yeah so he. He wins the well to a finals at the end of nineteen ninety. Say coming into australia. At the start of ninety-five didn't play a woman tournament. He cruised through his first three matches that australian open he had to come from two sets down to defeat. Magnus larsson four six six seven seven five six four six four in the last sixteen. How much an anxious watch david was that feed you. Remember watching that third round match. Do i was in the same room same. Tv room and you know. The thing would lost on things that remiss seen. He's a big guy loss in any had the hammer of all ham full hands and he was one of those that would tycoon a design game just in power for power and yeah when he went to apologize word. I was worried but san francisco. You know was a lot more of a fight than i think. People realized he but he also had in great focused and ability to just keep on believing in what he was doing Once he started the comeback there was a feeling of inevitability about he'd he'd cruised through his first three matches but then suffers this wobble In in round number four makes it through and he goes into the quarterfinals against friend and rival fellow american. Jim courier sampras led the head to head at this stage. Ten three Between them at one the last three australian opens courier nineteen ninety-three and sampras defending the tightly one in in one thousand nine four. There's also the very significant background on tim gullikson. Some coach gullikson at this stage had suffered several seizures while touring with sampras in europe in late nineteen ninety-four four. This is this from salutes. Rated piece he insisted on accompanying accompanying sampras to the nineteen ninety. Five australian open gullikson became ill shortly after warming up for his third round match against Against laws johnson. If if sweden gullikson return to the locker room where according to observe as he turned pale and his breathing became lated his speech slurred and his vision blurred. Gullickson was immediately taken to a private emergency hospital. Sampras aware that gullikson had been hospitalized with model of equilibrium in a straight sets victory johnson afterwards he rushed to gullickson side where he would spend much of the next few days at one point. Gullickson requested a worst case scenario from physician according to sampras quite the worst case was not good on the day that sampras met career gullikson stable enough to fly left for the us for further tests. He checked into the university of illinois at chicago medical center and in fact in brackets says doctor said that preliminary tests ended up showing. His condition was not life-threatening. It was thoughts of the worst case. Scenario that some press. It carried onto the court against jim courier. Will you aware of that background. David's going into this going into this quote. Fundamentally aware of tim gullikson on the significance of his role in some precise career and life by this point but how how aware with the media and then by extension the viewers of that situation. It's it's one of tried to remember. It would have been reported Because it comes out in certainly in some of the commentary not all of it but some of it But i think probably was aware that he'd had ill health and he that he wasn't. I think maybe it'd come out in the last match beforehand. That he wasn't around all he'd been taken out there. Forty wasn't courtside because pull annika was also part of the team. He kind of took the reins so he loses. The first two sets to jim courier. He's i highlighted this match in the highlights mostly focused on on the final final three sets for various reasons but my impression was that i didn't play really badly for these tea sets. He wasn't having a sting caves just being being outplayed by by. Jim courier curry was excellent. So then minds. I mean you've said that careered one four slams in san person five this time but up into that point. Although it was a ten three head-to-head courier had one of the big matches he'd won that. Us open quarterfinal and really. It was the year before in the australian open when sampras managed to be career on a stinking hot day and curry used to be the man on hot days. I couldn't believe that somebody was taking him out when it was that hot because he'd won the last two titles at australia. And that's when sampras attend the rivalry around now when they come into this match. Some is heavily the favorites to to win it but korea played an absolutely exceptional match. That day i mean we're not going to focus too much on on the match and the tennis but it was sensational so so sensational contrast of styles the cat-and-mouse the the jim courier eliciting the best. If this empress hall police this empress back and hopefully i've forgotten how. How good a show that was an i saying. He elicited the very best of him. It was a bit light. What andy roddick is very best would make federal do if he was having a good serving day or not to the same degree because nadal is dominated that rivalry in the early stages but he had a patent dow that hurt federer and couriers was the same direction but with an inside out forehand as opposed to a left handed hook cross court for but curry. We just camp in that back end corner and hit hands all day if he could in my one of my favorite commentators jerry williams the late jerry williams used to say the old frank panel forehand. Jim career is out and doing damage. And i think we've probably reduced careers ability down too much..

Close your eyes and allow david law to take you back to hundred thousand nine hundred ninety five and that years australian. We're going to set the scene for you for you. i Particularly the the pete sampras landscape coming into the australian open nine thousand nine hundred five at this stage. He's a five time grand slam champion. He's the defending champion at the australian. Open a jim courier won the the two previous in ninety two ninety three. And then pete sampras had one in one thousand four. He's the number one seat. And he'd finished ninety three and nineteen ninety-four as the world number-one so he's an ex. He's a kfc five five only five grand slams but he is. He's on course at the moment to to become one of what of the great vizier woody. Being talked about david as potentially one of the greats is. What was the phrase greatest of all time coming up in tennis. Punditry at this stage in pete san career. Yeah i would say it was an actually. The thing is because we look through it with a lens of seventeen nineteen twenty grand slam singles. Titles these days. Because of what. Federal dow djokovic serena williams of all done five at the time was a heck of a lot bear in mind that a royal held the record on twelve. John mcenroe's retired with seven Beyond ball could retired with eleven. The these were this was the landscape papers base in the peak of his career or approaching the peak of his career. He'd got five and it didn't really look like too many people that we're going to stop him. Getting more. agassi was going through a fantastic resurgence. He just won the us open Towards the end of ninety four. But still sampras. And i guess he head and shoulders above everybody else and generally speaking. Yeah in san. Just looked unstoppable on his day before us set the scene. Feola little bit more. Repeat sampras could be set. The david law seen january nineteen ninety-five whereas david law. What's doing well university. A left bra in my first year. I'm staying in holes of residents. I've got my walls papered with pictures off. Tennis plas- work in tennessee. But i love tennis. And i wanted to everybody. I spoke to to know about it because nobody seemed interested. The university so i just decided to put pictures of tennis. All my walls. Pete sampras was currents in center and right in everybody's face a nobody else nobody else on. You liked him. Nobody and he was. He was the two time defending wimbledon champion and. Everybody slacked him off that. I knew university because they said he was boring. There was too much of When he won that wimbledon tightly ninety four beating ghana vich the sun. Newspaper ran the headline pete. Sampras bisquick finance horrible. it's horrible. There was a columnist. Steve howard who's actually turns out and i've since found out is a brilliant writer and a brilliant columnist but he wrote the most all flee mean autumn about pete sampras now is and and i just vowed one day i would meet steve howard and have my say. I didn't really know how the media works quite as much time and please. I didn't didn't. I never met him. Yeah i think so. And like i say. He's a cracking writer. But the world didn't like pete percent and britain. They just found him boring. And of i guess he had one within the ninety two then sampras took either and the contrast between the two could not have been more stark was popular. One wasn't in many ways in most is but for me sampras was the man and i was. I'd gone to university. I was doing a right. I got through my wilderness years to actually have some sort of degree of success in life of at least achieving getting to university and and when this australian open was going on i only had the sort of communal. Tv room the whole residents to to watch any of it on this match started. I don't know so six in the morning. I was there on my own in this massive. Tv rain would one little tv and allowed to notes. The seats and i sat there for the next four. Nuff us mass putting on the spot here but d- do you know what What your parents view. On on pete sampras was the time i my parents. David fitted very much confirmed the majority that you would railing against. They were not pete. Sampras fans soul they they definitely would have enjoyed the pete sampras. Move certainly agreed with that sentiment i. I'm not sure about my parents at the time. But what i'm interested to come back to peps at the end of this podcast is to talk about whether this moment that we're going to cover today has had a lasting impact on people's perception of pete sampras. Because i have a theory that outside of tennis it might not have done. I think a lot of people still look back on some press as a bit boring and as a dominant figure who didn't display exciting motion on the call and oversee. We know that's not true because particularly this moment in his career but has it had a lasting impact beyond tennis circles. I'm i'm not sure how. For example my parents might still think of sampras as a bit boring i think perhaps that is a uk thing because of what he did wimbledon. So much but yeah. It's a very interesting debate. I think david's faces utterly crestfallen at the moment. This is twenty five years of campaigning. All for nothing. You'll have your say today. David you can win them. Round will eighteen years winnable round. Can i ask david. When i was when i look at pete sampras career something i find interesting and said he had this real breakthrough as a nineteen year old and won the us open. I think i think at the time he was the youngest ever winner of the. Us open he then had a couple of the as where he didn't win another slam but he remained in the top. Ten was there was any sense of. Oh he was. He was a one off winning that slam. What's happened to and why connie win another one. Was it all. Just a sense of his time is gonna come eventually is going to be a dominant champion I think it was more a sense that his time of winning a major tournament at the sipe and in one thousand nine hundred km ahead of time came to allie and he even he described as a couple of hot week scene and to win that. Us open and that was the first time i'd ever heard of sampras that he actually beat villanova thousand nine. Us open but to get to the ca- getting to the quarterfinals. But it was that ninety. Us open he beat in back to back matches. Lendl john mcenroe. And then andre agassi thrashed agassi in the final when agassi was the one who is getting all the headlines and that was a huge exciting win in terms of showcasing his skill. But he was. He was really young at the time and he wasn't refined. His whole game wasn't ready yet. I think in his mind certainly wasn't ready so it was a bit more light federal winning against some person two thousand and one but not winning a grand slam title until two thousand and three right more like that and then the following year. The story was that he then lost currier in a pretty underwhelming To i think it was ninety one And he said it feels like a huge ton of bricks even use like a monkey off my back. He said a ton of bricks. Just been taken off my shoulders. Because i'm no longer the defending champion and enough he. Actually i read some press conference transcripts about that this morning and he said you know i regret sign that because i didn't really mean it like that. I i sort of felt like a time. Maybe i will feel relieved to have note to no longer. Be the defending champion. But actually i felt really down. Because i felt like i was playing well enough to defend that title so i think people got impression of me because of what i said which wasn't really true..
"Folks and welcome to the tennis podcast and very special edition of the tennis podcast and back by popular demand brackets by David Law ov- tennis relived. We told you. It would be coming back. Of course, it was coming back. Don't worry. We know that actual live tennis is happening this tennis lived and. Second. One prior to the US Open is not in place of talking about live tennis. And related things it is an addition and a very special and necessary edition as well. This one will be focusing on the life, the career, the legacy of Alpha Gibson, and our next one will be focusing on the very same of thrash respectively the first african-american women and men to win Grand Slam titles in NFL Gibson's case the first African. American. Person To, be, admitted, to play. Professional tennis an extraordinary women in extraordinarily. Important figure in tennis history and one that. Hasn't been sufficiently remembered or given her Jews always over the is so. We're hoping to write that in a very tiny tiny way today certainly been. An extraordinary learning experience for us to to get to know these t plays an the significance in tennis history say thank you David for your enthusiasm. For tennis relived. Point Yeah it's very different what we're doing today and what we're doing with the Arthur Ashe podcast as well. When we were doing the Roland Garros relived Wimbledon the Olympics, they were all about events or matches or moments in time specific moments in time when we came up to realizing that the US Open for stop was going to happen and we really don't have two weeks worth of shows to fill much as I'd love to come up with twenty wonderful matches and memories which no doubt we will get to in the. List of Twelve Pete Sampras much is that he submitted for the short lift. US Open relived and fifteen Jimmy Connors matches. Including all seven from all from. Sorry. All five from nine hundred, ninety one. But When we came to to look at this and we started to try to think well, what what should we do I personally suddenly realize the the gaping chasm mind knowledge in my reading of the Games history and I think particularly Alpha Gibson I feel ashamed not to know what I now know and what we want to do with this show. Is Tell, the stories that we've discovered and to properly tell the history as best as we can. I. Think we all knew that line first black woman to play the US Open and win Grand Slam titles but I'd never properly engaged with that line or really understood what that actually. Meant or considered what she actually had to overcome to become that because tennis was this elitist sport at a racially segregated time in America. So it's an extraordinary thing that tennis was used as AVIK BY A. Gibson and now thrash. To advance the black race and I'd never really. Never really thought about that before how how, what, a, what a strength of character and what a special talent it took to be able to achieve as a black person in in that white world and it's just been. Just been happening really to have read and sort of spent time. In their lives over the last few over the last few days and weeks doing this research and and it felt very necessary and timely as well.

"Had news this week from Wimbledon. Pretty incredible news has to be said you know all of the ways that tennis has sort of disgraced itself. During this weird periods, it kind of feels like in one wave of the Magic Wand Wimbledon has been able to neutralize. Nullify all if that because. They have done the most classy thing they have put a a ten million pound prize pot aside. To. To distribute to the six hundred plus players would have been competing. Wimbledon in the main role, and in the qualifying draw as well I think twenty five thousand pounds to plays the would have. On on on current rankings been playing in the in the main draw and twelve and a half thousand to those that would have been in the qualifying draw and the reception to that. COMPLETELY UNPROMPTED MOVE! On social media has been incredible. People Have Been Pretty Pretty Bold David by the gesture actually and. Many have been making the point that kid that could save careers for a lot of people. In, the Lower Tiers of the sport that is the difference between. Being able to continue as a professional tennis player, not yeah, and they've also covered doubles players with a lower figure, but still you know a sizable amount of money for people who literally are not earning a penny right now unless they sought out. Giving tennis lessons or something like that. They are freelance contractors who are not playing tournaments are not earning money unless they can get into one of the the locally organized exhibitions matching and the same with the wheel champ as well. I mean this is A. Great Fund of money that has been put aside by Wimbledon. Who are? Covered by their pandemic insurance, which was just the most incredible foresight at the time, but I do love the way they have taken advantage of that great foresight, and the money that that is going to save them and decided okay. Let's spread the love around. Let's let's look the people that we rely on in order to be tournaments and. Just just really really impressive. And they've also. Giving money to officials who would have been working at the event? Sanctioned officials and international officials, he would have been working at the tournament so just around really really incredible gestures from Wimbledon. Both the generous gesture for sure, and but also really sensible. Macro. Way of viewing tennis a recognition of the fact that for Wimbledon to happen in be successful. You need tennis players, not just the top ones the multimillionaires you need. Hundred Twenty eight players in the drawer in need. A qualifying tournaments and you need wheelchair players and. Doubles players and this is these are the things that. That make grand. Slam tournaments the the peaceful thing that they are so. Yeah having having. Having that view of the sport and not just sort of myopic narrow one is. It's great to see actually. Also announced by Wimbledon this week is that they are doing away with the seeding formula on the men's side? So no more elevating Pete Sampras, from what was it seven in the world to top seed? Something like that. I mean. These days. The impact of that is pretty minimal in practical terms, but it's more sort of the the principle of it. I suppose in. The fact that the Wimbledon, a note, no longer be an outlier in those terms, and I think the way the formula works. If they'd had it next year, the most recent grass-court results that would have been impacting. The formula would have been from two years ago which. kind of doesn't feel that relevant so I think it kind of makes sense that it's that he's going now. kind of just seemed seem slightly unnecessary, especially with the Gross, not playing as differently as it used to back back when they first came up with the formula, so yeah, I think most people seem to think that it makes sense.

That's kind of loss. It would've taken months to recover from, but what does it to, to all these guys ages, you know, literally thirty on down knowing that as good as they are as many five hundred titles? They win their these three guys that are. Just gonna make life really, really difficult. I mean, we talk about all the time, but it's just the infortunately if you grew up in that area, you played in that era with those guys, I mean, 'cause some, some of them can kind of say, well, maybe, maybe the, you know, the light at the end of the tunnel is is just time one. I mean they're not gonna play forever. They might play close to forever. But oh you're right. But that's you know, for some of the younger people, maybe that's the only thing that they can really turn to. But someone like Nisha Corey, for example. I mean, there's not much time there between them and he's, you know struggling and has struggle with his own injuries, and, and things like that. So you know it's not like he has an infinite lane on his career. So I don't know what that does to your tear self belief. I mean 'cause if you're if you're in that, you know, if you're in that partner, you know, you're in that, that role you probably just be leave the job and go some real. I think you. You go to work every day. You're well compensated. You like what you do. It's not breaking rocks. It's good. Okay. Nishikori is living a great life. But how many more defeats do you take before you start a start to say deep down? I'm never gonna get one of these Emma anyway, just something they will. And this. The flip side of this is amazing. I mean we, we say, golden era, but that's exactly what it is. I mean, the flip side of all. This is just an incredible time if you'd said, not only I talked before about how this Roy Emerson record when I'm dating myself a twenty years ago, this was the great question in tennis, and Pete Sampras surpassed it. And then three guys of surpass Pete Sampras. If you said, three guys are gonna win twenty eighteen and fifteen majors respectively. They're going to bat these things around, and almost like a cartel, and they're all doing it at the same time. I mean, that's to me is what's absolutely remarkable about this over this. This sports been played for, you know, since we started telling these things, it's still been well, over one hundred years in the three leaders on the men's side are all doing the simultaneously, and they were all all born within basically five years of each other.

I mean, there's so many Evers and you're like really like, where's the date on that? So. You know, Livio is good friend. And I thought about that at the time and the. The inspiration. Little bit is also tennis. I played in the juniors as a kid and grew up playing tennis. And I at the time it was probably, you know, shows how old I am Pete Sampras vs. Andre Agassi was and so both were you know, admired both on Agassi developed this tick or trick which is at the end of a bad point. If I remember correctly at the end of a bad point. He would slap his. And that was like a mental little hook to forget about the point is he just associated with slapping, his thigh with forgetting the bad point that he just fucked up and focusing on the current and that was a little trick for his brain just to stop wallowing in the bed and focus on now. And just the bad just went away. And it's the same thing with Michelle show. Yeah. Michelle, and it's you screw up. You do something stupid even in business. If you had a bad board, you said stupid things or you had a bed. Invest from. You know, you did something down with an employee that you you regret doing you need to slap your thoughts or think of the Michelle. We example, I screwed that up, and that's one step along the way of me getting better, and whatever I'm going to do now slept the fine. Let's focus on you know, set that behind you and move forward. And so that's the that's the kind of golfer quarter. The Andrea Agassi slap your trick. Okay. Related because you you. Us and not not to belabor this. But you have you used systems and reminders allot? Why do you have a post it note? And you may you may no longer have it. But post it note that says the adventures of Luke star killer. Oh, yeah. It's still up on my wall. I the honor is that I did a lot of one of the stories. I tell I tell bunch of films stories, I have some one of my really close friends in film, and we've been friends from many many years, and so I've he and I've traded stories and part of the inspiration. It was so fascinating to me. How many of my stories from biotech were so similar to the stories from film, and how what biotech CEO does so similar to film producer does and how the market's structured the hundreds of biotech companies in the hundreds of film, and the few film majors are so similar to the hundreds of small production shops and the the few. So the few film majors at the top few pharma majors at the top and the hundreds of production. Shops and the hundreds of biotech.
