The Surprising Science Behind Epic Athletes
"Dave in the interest of full journalistic disclosure. Here it feels important to mention that long before you became this new york times bestselling author and podcast host and the best sports science reporter in america. We worked together at sports illustrated in the mid to late two thousands and we used to share a wall yet in full disclosure. I believe i have a winning record against you in office table ping pong. That's stats to verify that i'm sticking with that. I recall destroying but maybe there is revisionist history. Oh that's so funny. So we both legitimately believe that another episode on cognitive biases. I am glad dave to have you here to clarify something else. Which is that in private for years. I've basically used you to help me understand what the very best athletes in the world are teaching us about ourselves in the human body and i get to that in public now on this podcast with you here because in your two books the sports gene and in range you tumble down into the rabbit. Hole of what is called performance science so before we get into all of that and double down with you. How did you get there in the first place. That is an interesting question. And i have to give a little bit of a disclaimer here. There's a sad part to the story. But i played a bunch of sports football basketball baseball in high school. Before i got into into running and ran track and field in college i started getting interested in physiology basically a lot of runners do but also had this sort of tragic event where a young guy who was a training partner mind. One of the top rank is in the country in his event. Eight hundred meters. Yeah i and family of jamaican immigrants. Who is going to go to. College actually died at the end of a race a few steps after race in my local newspaper he had a heart attack and i kind of wondered what does that. What does that even mean. And this sort of long story short set me on a path toward investigating physiology and it turned out. He had this genetic condition. That was sort of misdiagnosed. I'm interested in genetics. Which one thing led to another and ended up writing the sports team.
Roger Federer's back, briefly
"Hello folks woke until mid week tennis. Podcast a podcast. That was very nearly recorded on wednesday evening. Following roger federer's first much back after fourteen month hiatus at three win over. Brit dan evans. How different might that. Podcast have sounded. Had it been recorded yesterday versus being recorded now of to his three-set loss to nikoloz bassett villi. That is the punchy question that i put to you. David law and matt. Roberts whoever wants to take it. I think i should say that. It's because of matt. Roberts said we're recording it now and not if i had my way which was last night because i was a bit ivory excited to just get chatted. We've been so overexcited that it would now be out of date. How how different need. I think what i'm getting at is different. Do we feel about wherever resort. And what he's capable of off the two matches than we did after one arm in a similar place but matt watched both matches more closely. So i'm going to defer to matt. Hospital pass might enjoy. I think yesterday we would have been extremely positive about federer. And i think today we probably should still be positive about federal because federer is being positive about federal and i think we should take him at his word and agree that this has been a good week for him. He gained the matches that he wanted. He felt pretty good on the court. Arise maybe didn't always align with that viewpoint today There was there was a moment in his match today where his movement did really stop almost altogether and it was quite difficult to watch at times. But i think that's a difficult thing to do to have tempered. Expectations of roger federer. But it's absolutely what we need to have and he's upbeat. He said he's already over. It flew into his press conference after the loss. Today said he's over. It is positive generally and therefore i think we probably should be as well but we certainly have a lot more data to go on now that we've seen him play this match as opposed to just one match against evans because they two totally different matches for him and we'll talk about both of them he. He was asked Today as he said my in that very immediate post loss press conference i how. How long will this take to get over this loss. Read compared to previous losses similar level tournaments similar. Sages at already over. It sounding like you know when you've been broken up with an ally. I'm completely fine. I'm completely fine. he was. He wasn't right for me anyway. I never wanted to win this tournament. It wasn't it wasn't dubai is going to be better in dubai but and yet it also as you say. We should believe him me. You know what. I d believe him i he. We should probably feel fine about it could kiss. He feels fine about it. David yeah a. I would say that occasionally impress coinc- he said everything's fine and then isn't fine line a back problem or something like that. But i thought when he came out yesterday and play his match against down evans that he started off playing very carefully moving very carefully. He wasn't explosive he was he was balanced. He was good. He looked serene the way often does and he was striking the ball very well but i just felt like he was inevitably be very careful. And that changes. The match tone in evans pushed him in. They played they played good close competitive match But and at the end federal showing some real explosive tennis in some and he was getting Any any finished with a winning. So i thought that was really really good but there was a euphoria about him yesterday. Which was all build apple. High pulled a chats. He was excited. Because he's he's like a little kid in a sweetshop isn't even. He's playing tennis and when the is on him he loves it. He loves it. He's always has but today. I mean i didn't see all of the match because i was watching. Arena against gubbay mcgruder. And i left federal watch to you both but then when that finished i turned over and i was less alarmed than i thought i would be given what i was reading on twitter. And what what i was just hearing generally because i think he was fife on down listening in the second set maybe even lose that set six one zero six to eight yeah and it was definitely the latter stages if that second set would definitely sort of hidden hope connor by a around about that time. I did actually have a little chat. we don evans on. What's up. 'cause he was watching the match he was watching the match back and he said of course he's of course he's naked and we play hard much the night before and he's he's any she referenced the kind of all of the check before the match and before the tournament ties you out and you hit you hit a bit of a wall in and it's not really surprising. The blacks thirty nine. He's going to be forty later this year. He's hasn't played for thirteen months. And now he's played six sets in twenty four

Tennis: Novak Djokovic sensationally kicked out of US Open for hitting linesperson
"Is going to go down as probably I think he already is one of the best players to ever play the game. He's the number one player in the world. He was the overwhelming favorite to win the US Open. When it's all said and done, Novak Djokovic could have more majors than Roger Federer. You know, it's very possible, so he's a great player. But he's been known to have a temper on the court from time to time. Is he John McEnroe? No, of course not. But there was an incident A few months ago, We threw his racket and it almost hit a line stretch. Well, I want to play you a little bit of audio. Keep in mind. This is at the US Open from two days ago where Novak Djokovic was just broken Serve what It means is he just lost his game he was serving. It's not something you want to have happen to you when you're the number one player in the world, So he just this was literally seconds after he just misses a shot. He loses the point and he picks up a tennis ball, and he hits it. At a fairly good rate of speed, not trying to hurt anybody, but we'll get to that. But here's the live audio when it took place the side rail if it had a little if he had had a little higher would have gone right into the camera person. This one. He hits back and it's right towards the line person. And if it's all right, believe it hit her in the throat. Yeah, he's right. It did. So everybody was kind of shocked, right? It wasn't one of those situations where Oh, no. Look what happened. Everyone was trying to figure out what the hell just happened. Well, it turns out As the commentator just said that Novak Djokovic out of anger hit a tennis ball to the side rail. That's at least that's what he was trying to Dio. Instead, he connects head on. With a young female lineswoman. Right in the throat, So I don't know if she was young. She was 18 She maybe forties fifties sixties. I don't know. She falls to the ground holding her throat. It was a scary moment, but you know, you get hit in the throat. You never know what's going to happen anyway. It was really bad moments later. Termine officials get together and I knew what was going to happen because I know the rules of tennis. They disqualified him in the first set in the fourth round, the number one player in the world in a major the U. S Open now. Let me give you my opinions on this. First of all. When you decide to take out your anger, whether it's on your racket or tennis ball. You better while Dan make sure you don't hit anybody. Why? Well, first of all, I don't want to hurt anybody, and I don't think Djokovic was trying to hurt anybody. Clearly, this was unintentional. But it is your responsibility to know where you're hitting a tennis ball to know where you're throwing your racket and Novak Djokovic has been playing with fire for years. He's had incidents like this before where it was very close to hitting aligns person. There's a rule in tennis, and that rule is very simple. It doesn't matter whether it's intentional or not, if you make any sort of contact, and it's not in the middle of the point, for example, if you hit a shot in the middle of a point, and it hits the lines person, you're obviously not going to get penalized because you know that's a completely different. But if you throw a racket Or if you hit a tennis ball in anywhere, and it strikes anybody. You are immediately disqualified. This has happened before. That's exactly right. Thank you, Mr Mcclosky. It's happened several years ago with another player who's still in the open right now, if I recall It's a very simple rule. Don't do it, and if you're going to take your anger out on your racket or tennis ball, make sure you don't hit anybody. It's very simple. It's clearly in the rules, but I have a

"All, right we back. Welcome to yeah. We said it Ronas report part one. We still hear you know. Don. L.. How're you doing? On well, I can't complain not sick and tired of being in the house but you know it is what it is. relatable relatable for everybody. Florida also today you heard from him last year for our Wimbledon episode. Welcome back and thanks for joining us to talk some myths today. I'm always here to talk Thank said. For letting me letting me comeback art. Right So there's a lot of news. It's been seven months. So With a lot of stuff. Okay. Right at the end of January, that's right January. Former world number-one player estimates year announced that she had been diagnosed with breast cancer. So that was very sad I checked her social media when I was writing this down because like I said, this is in January to see if she had anything else. About. How things are going I didn't see anything on twitter. But. I saw some other stuff that she was like promoting and everything. So I'm I'm hoping that he's Okay I haven't heard anything since January either. the bad news just kept coming as a few days after that one Martina Poacher underwent yet another knee surgery after the previous procedure was unsuccessful. Just recently stated that he's begun slowly re acclimating himself to the tennis court. Once again. This is just the last couple of weeks. Yeah. That's to hear about Walmart being but esther is an absolute lack of the sport. I don't really think she gets the the the amount than do that she should be. Layers. By like five hundred state matches without almost. Like years. Absolute legend She deserves all this lowers possibly get. and also conversely I feel like Walmart game. She he his almost underachieve like e e should he also did a lot of flowers but Injuries. Yeah every time he really starts to get on a roll and starts plans to get back into the top ten like here comes into the freak injury. So yeah, really unfortunate. It's crazy but he he always manages to find his way back into the top ten and back you know making deep runs in the slams in in in winning title. So it's kind of amazing to see him being able to bounce back similar times I mean he obviously was supported the sport because we seem people who have gone through last Mike give it up and he just keeps doing his best to come back again it's gotta be super. duper difficult frustrating. Definitely. We discussed on our pre Australian Open episode that Robert Farah had been provisionally suspended on a doping charge. Short. Time later, he saw that suspension lifted as it was determined that he bears no fault or negligence would be allowed to compete again immediately. Of, course competition ended soon after but he's been very active actively thirst trapping on instagram der Rona for which I am. Very thankful. We. All Know Cedric Cubans trying all of those instagrams Lissette, a meal blast like that Yes i. Yeah, I mean I'm sure he knows they. Let me move on? Roger Federer also had yet another knee operation. This past spring he planned to be up to the French Open, but it turns out. This might have been the best time for him to have such a procedure. So yeah. He's I. I saw some stuff where he since stated data like he doesn't really know. What's going to happen next as far as is concerned right now. Yeah I was I. was that he picked the exact right time disappear. Yeah. He did for sure you know he had not coming bed. Yeah. This is a great time. So if he does come back, it's you know it's not like you superior behind what everybody else is dying but. Get his ranking and stuff will still be pretty secure. So. Obviously. Back in his thirty ninth birthday the other day. So you know happy belated or whatever. Yeah, I guess up. Have you heard about him being like more more injured than what he lets us know. I didn't really it was. It was like some sort of a quote where he said something to the effect of he wasn't sure if he would be back like he was he just wasn't sure right now. Like. He wasn't sure if he's coming back at all that's that's what I read. I. Don't know was voted the way I would. Scream. Scream but I I mean I could buy it because you know spending all this time at home with his family and his wife and kids and everything. And to have achieved everything that he's achieved, I don't know if I'd come back either.
No US Open for Nadal; Olympics Re-Lived: 2004 Athens
"Fellow folks, and welcome. Once again to the tennis podcast and the latest edition of Olympics relived, we've already lived through the Olympics nine, hundred, Eighty, eight, three to the two thousand in Sydney, and we now arrive at two thousand four Athens Olympics return to it, spurs place one, hundred, four years earlier just before we get onto reliving. Olympic things a little bit of news to one since our last weekly tennis actual tennis based podcast couple of days ago. The knees we've had is the entry list is out for the US Open. And Rafael. Nadal is not on it. He has made an announcement that he will not be playing the USA Open. It is for health risk based reasons, which I think we'll. We'll respect that obviously disappointing for the tournament that that won't be their first. Grand, Slam with neither federal known adult, since Nineteen Ninety nine on the women's side nine. If the world's top turn on the entry list, it's only a number one ashburn on it. Obviously, entry list does not mean list of players that are actually definitely going to play. But it's nonetheless, you know this early stage, a bit of beast for the US Open, and the other bit of News we've had is that. As entirely expected at the Madrid Masters and premium mandatory tournament has been canceled. I. Mean the writing on the wall. That as we discussed on Monday, but it has been formally cancelled. We do understand there's a chance that Kitsch Buell, which is tournament that must get mentioned on every tennis podcast apparently. Might. Now, move. Back a week to take up that place in the calendar where Madrid. We're going to be of I said that quickly enough so that we can move onto Olympic stuff. Is Seen as possible. I mean there are a lot of good players. All over those interests, and as you say, who knows how many of them will end up playing but him and we we knew that the likelihood was the Dow wasn't gonNA play. There was maybe a little bit of doubt about that. When Madrid was canceled perhaps Nadal might have changed his mind, but you said it's at the time you felt that if it was a view on the virus itself and not wanting to travel and it's not going to change and sure enough he made it clear that it was because of his concerns over the virus, he just feels the world isn't ready for that and he's He's not comfortable to travel. I did sort of slightly Riley. Smile. When I saw the pressure relation, the US not even including the dowels name in the release, not even acknowledging that they're defending their reigning champion was not actually going to be there because of the decision he taken and yet they did mention that Roger Federer wasn't going to be there because of his injury I thought that was poor. I think just acknowledging the champion would have been a classier thing to have done, and actually I noticed in Chris. Clarity's piece overnight in the new. York Times that he spoke to the tournament Director Stacey Allaster who? took a completely different tack and pay tribute to refer and said, she looked forward to returning and I think that that is certainly the right way to of played that. But yeah. We've also seen one or two notes overnight of the protocols that the USDA plan to. Employ for covid nineteen testing, and if somebody tests positive in a team or an or apply themselves, the play will just be removed from the tournament and we'll have to isolate and. The words of James Blake really came back to me are upon reading those rules of just what it might take even for the tournaments if it had a lot of. People testing positive in having to be removed from the drawer. How many Coulda draw take you know this? This something I hadn't really considered before and if you're staying independent accommodation, so electing not to stay in the. Official bubble hotels. Then you have to pay for and be responsible for private security to monitor your bubble adherents. which is intense but space slightly reassuring. But goodness me, it's. Any ad, the question remains unanswered of of what the threshold is for that tournament. What's what stage does D stop treating individual cases and start saying as a? Hot Sports that needs to be needs to be shut down and his depressing is that. Prospect. is they they need to have a plan for that scenario?

Let's get into it starting a number sixteen in our countdown, and it's one I guess you know for British fans is a very a memorable I will say a fairytale story where we him back to Twenty-six. On its Marcus Willis and His run from you free. Pre would qualify to qualify to the main draw. To play Roger Federer. Is this more of a Fairytale Jolan Peter Cold winning Wimbledon in the film that we discussed on our lots podcast. Possibly say yeah. I feel like made some of our listeners from like ABC's might not even know of this story. They might even have never heard of Marcus Willis. British fans probably happen until two thousand sixteen. And Yeah. He came through the qualifying say. He was ranked down at like seven, hundred and seventy two in the world. Qualified One always marched and qualifying obviously. And then came up against recalled this baron case of I. Think he's Lithuanian in the first round, beat him. which she data alone is kind of pre.

Time, one of the greatest cross players of all time across across from you of from the net I think the story for me remarkable because the the the ingrained image I have in my head of Marcus Willis is. Is actually before this it wasn't. It's not baby. It was he was on like. He was like on a challenge tour event, and he had like a can of coke and a malls Baugh.

It was just crazy the way he went from this sort of you know position where he wasn't really kind of know. Yes, he was talented, but I think he was really applying himself.

I was GONNA. Say My pants spur. I'm dressed, but I'm certainly not in A. Poised and ready to. Go on the tally or anything. I mean it is a very different university living in. The the same time I still find myself trying to crowbar these matches into to be able to watch them all in time because we just watched four hours of a match for today's podcast, having recorded yesterday's show, and then we've got tomorrow's look forward to I mean look I'm having the time of my life. I'm relive I'm reliving two thousand and one and loving every single minute of it, but yeah around actually making meals for children and go into the pollock, and all that sort of thing I am struggling a bit to fit it all in hence sleep out today we spending. We're dwelling quite a while in in two thousand and one land. Aren't we today tomorrow? Yeah and it turns out that that's important. Because David didn't see two thousand one Wimbledon. Much of two thousand and one full stop you in a windowless room in the ASS. End of Germany awesome thing. Date I did I missed the entirety of the two thousand one Wimbledon until the final which we'll get onto more tomorrow when we, she watched that as one of them it because the woman doing tomorrow is the two thousand and one men's singles final between Goran, Ivanisevic and Pat, rafter today it's Pete Sampras against Roger Federer in the fourth round, but yet the time. Time I was in my fourth year working for the ACP tool I'd been communications manager for three and a half years traveling around I had informed the powers that be that I would like to have got writing and interviewing and all that sort of thing, and they said okay. Then you can go work on this new thing that we've got called a website. And it's and we produce it in Hamburg Germany. So off. You go to the office that. Germany. Not the end of anywhere I thought it was somewhere a little more. Than that. Politically, it was delightful, delightful The office was Nelson somewhere. And Anyway I'm sitting and get there and I'm like we get to the fourth round magic Monday manic Monday and I'm thinking right. There's a lot of crack matches on here. This Roger Federer against Pete Sampras Tim Henman lighter. which channel is it on here in Germany? And they said it's on premiere I said all right. Where's where's that said? We haven't got that one. So. So I was a little bit dubbed by this and frantically trying to think. How do I get out of this job? But. I've signed up for the rest of the entire week until the weekend when I would go off to Gustad for the tournament that. So anyway, that's when I discovered that actually it was available on BBC radio through their website in inverted commas I that I'd never heard of before, but anyway so I was able to listen to the BBC radio coverage throughout the rest of the week, and that's what made me decide. That I wanted to be a commentator right and that week. And he fight off emails to to the commentators he'd be listening to. You. Yeah Yeah, Inkatha. Who is the tennis correspondent? Richard Evans, very long time experienced respected journalist and reporter send the Sunday Times tennis correspondent Dana coincide of the BBC. And they brought the championships alive for me over in Germany and I mean that's what they do. That's what the job of the radio commentator is for people who can't say to try to bring it alive and. It did the job for me. It made it magical I mean I. I actually think that Wimbledon. If you think of Tim Henman's run as well and everything else that went into it, it was one of the all time. Great. Wimbledon's including the ending. And to listen to it on the radio where your mind is having to do the job for you, because you can't see it, using the words, they they describe and you conjuring images on the back of those words, it makes even more mystical and fantastical David Law.

Let's chase of the news because we've actually got. Live actual tennis news to to hit you with. Today today well, actually, it was more yesterday, wasn't it? Because the US Open and I mean it's been a not brilliantly kept secret right it was. It was leaked to the New York Times. It's been it's been all but confirmed for for a few days right? Yeah, it was clearly coming. Decision had been made an frankly even if you go back to late last week, and the all the plans being talked about by the New York Times and John Wertheim has been writing the story as well for sports illustrated, and then we did. We did a conference call. Would Feliciano Lopez with a? Dozen of the British journalist, because this is of course, fever tree championships week should have been the Queen's Club where Lopez won both singles and doubles titles last year, so he was talking to them a little bit about that, but he also really gave chapter and verse about the player meeting they had last week the. Zoom call now we're all we've all suddenly discovered. What zoom is over the last three months? This video conferencing ten. Days David Law I've done a lot of. but on this particular eighty, a planned meeting one they had four hundred players on, and this was the USDA and the the tools tending the players what the plan was to try to make the US Open plant. This is on the ATP side I leave. It turns out none of Novak. Djokovic handed out Roger Federer were on this call, but anyway the had four hundred people on it. And Lopez gave us chapter and verse on on this This media conference about what was said, and the lengths that they were going to to, and also that he was assured he was absolutely sure that it was going to go ahead. The US Open is going to happen. He said he also said it should happen. In my view, it's time the tennis to get rolling because. Bear in mind. He's not just tennis player these days He's a tournament director. He is going to be. Fronting one of the events that will take place in the remaining months of the tennis calendar. That's Madrid. He's the tournament director there, but he had a pretty stark message for the players in that call that we are going to have to accept less prize money. We're going to have to get used to that. We're GONNA have to basically stop being so precious what he was saying and understand be realistic about. The year we're in the climate. We're in the situation we're in

Open weight loss from match points against your Kovic. He seems to be a player who attracts these dramatic matches and a lot of the time he does come out as the loser and yet he has made an extraordinary career out of bouncing back from defeats but this has to be the most painful because of what he said that the fact that it was on his record he. EP He missed the opportunities today and in the bigger context there are two ways to famous there are there's the he's thirty eight next month. How on earth can you envisage a better opportunity for him to win a Grand Slam title than having too much points on your own serve but the other way is looking back to the Australian Open this year and the U._S. Open last year and and the defeat city suffered their respectively to sit surpass and John Millman in that grueling physical fifth defeat we had all I think adjusted our feelings about Roger Federer to think that if he's going to win much is he needs to do it in four sets unless it's somebody that unless it's against an opponent that themselves is going to win wilt in the fifth set?

"But not a ton and i think there are plenty of opportunities to restore some of that excitement like for me one of the things that got me re interested in baseball was all the sort of new statistics and data you could get and in this case you know based on i've seen fc inclusion studies done where part of a a player's body is blocked in tennis and in some aware that elite tennis players can judge wearables going just from seeing some body motions and when you have to see the ball really sought my guess is that when they do dispute a call by and large they are correct and i think it'd be really cool to be in the stadium give the spectators a quicker and when there is a close call they can wisdom of the crowded and try to save who is in mount versus the player you don't need to do that in a couple of seconds and i think it would be you know would make for some really interesting segments on anticipatory skill of elite athletes people could learn wisdom of the crowd a little bit and see how it works and i think there are a lot of ways the we could replace the excitement while getting the accuracy now i i saw that initially roger federer was opposed to haul climate accents that federal would be opposed to any change into a where he dominates um but now he's he's more into it although he still complains that had night they can't use that of that of that struck me as bizarre y y isn't this why isn't the system usable it in the evening and it it just seems like a whoa a weird choice to have this technology is using on heath certain hours of the day well so you agree with federer you know it's funny that it developed this this nearcertainty among commentators you'd hear during almost for every federer match when either he missed a challenger his opponents accede on a challenge will federer hates hawkeye and i kept hearing it and so finally i went looking for what is the quote was the source for this and i think it was some interviewer he said well i'm not really sure i like the tradition.
