Hi, thanks for joining us. Welcome along to world sport live from London. With me, Amanda Davis. One of the big questions looming over the start of this year's sporting calendar looks to have been answered after months of uncertainty 9 time Australian open champion Novak Djokovic is heading down under Annie will be lining up to defend his title in Melbourne at the Australian open, having been granted a medical exemption permission. Djokovic has previously refused to talk about his vaccination status. And his appearance at the opening Grand Slam of the year had been in doubt because of Victoria state regulations that govern Melbourne, which state that people must be vaccinated in order to work. But the man himself has taken to social media, posting a picture of his bags packed and saying I've spent fantastic quality times with my loved ones over the break. Today I'm heading down under with an exemption permission. Let's go. 2022. Well, for more, here's tennis writer and broadcaster host of the no challenges remaining podcast. Ben Rothenberg with his reaction from Australia. The news that Novak Djokovic has been granted a medical exemption that will allow him to play at the Australian open. And months of speculations about whether or not he will play the tournament at all, but also raises all sorts of more questions about how he got this exemption and how news of this exemption will affect his already pretty low popularity among much of the public in Melbourne. Djokovic had been on the fence but whether he put his current for a long time and though medical exemption had been mentioned as a possible loophole for him to get in and be eligible if he were not vaccinated. He had never revealed his status either way before news of this. I don't think many people thought it was a real possibility given the sort of severe acute medical conditions that were listed as being required in order to get a medical exemption. Novak's exemption comes at a time when there have been pretty big buy in from the players on the ATP tour finally who largely been slow to get vaccinated, but many of them had knowing that it was going to be required for the Australian open and the latest ATP numbers, 90 5 of the top hundred had the vaccinated at this point. Djokovic obviously being one of those holdout 5. If Djokovic can get over the resentment that he gets in the stands and possibly from the locker room as well, he absolutely has a chance to win a record breaking 21st Grand Slam title involving his tenth Australian open title here in Melbourne. But it will take a considerable mental effort to block out the amount of speculation and negativity. He's likely to get for being treated with different rules than everyone else's. That was Ben Rothenberg from Australia, the tournament getting underway on January 17th. Now Rommel Lukaku has apologized and will be back in the Chelsea squad for Wednesday's carabo cup semifinal against Tottenham. He'd been pictured back in training, despite being dropped for Sunday's game against Liverpool after a controversial interview with Italian media in which he'd said he was unhappy at Stanford bridge. And now addressing the media on Tuesday, Thomas Tuchel said the pair had a calm meeting as he put it and that he's been reassured, the Belgian striker didn't intentionally cause the controversy. He apologized and is back in the squad for today's training for me the most important thing was to understand and to clearly understand and believe that it was not intentional. He did not do this intentionally to create this kind of noise in front of a big game. It's not that big. As maybe people wanted to be or you wanted to be, it's not small. It's also not small, but it's small enough to stay calm to accept an apology and to move on forward. He's very aware of what happened and what he created and he is in he feels the responsibility to clean them as that. Maybe we will have a bit of smell still from it, of course. He can handle it. There's also no other choice. He can not expect now everybody to be super happy. The very next day. But he is still our player. I was Thomas Tuchel. Now, coming up, Portuguese celebrations are the wave eventually Old Trafford, as wolves take the spoils on Ronaldo's home to her. Why is everyone talking about and nasal irrigation? I want to suffer from chronic sinus infection. If you work in construction, you work around sawdust or any type of dust. You need to clean that crap out of your nose. She snores. We both snore. The science is simple. Allergens and viruses invade through your nose, the body's air filter. When it gets clogged up, germs multiply and you can get sick. Nasal irrigation is an all natural way to clean your nose. It's not a drug. It's more like plumbing, uses powered suction to pull sailing in one nostril around the back of the nose and out the other nostril flushing out allergens mucus and viruses. Over 80,000 reviews confirm it. Makes nose cleaning easy so you can breathe better sleep deeper snore less and feel healthier. I love this thing. I give it like an a plus plus plus. It does clean out what's going on inside here. It's nice to breathe. Now it's time for you to breathe better, too, with, clean nose, healthy life. Did you commit to stopping your crackdown against Alexei Navalny? Is there a chance that the Russians could be planning an invasion of course? There's very little sign of any side backing down. It's got blasted with a water cannon. We can't go any closer. There could be some interception by the Russians. Not good. The answer is we're going to run for it, right? Yes, come on, let's go.

"They have to be in a room that made the third guy on the defensive line that was really difficult for developing Pittsburgh. If there is like steamers, the high wheelers and Sunday does not change my opinion. At some point, I follow a lot of Steelers media members going, Andrew Philip only has to work, of course position, and there was a theme from the Steelers deal last week like hey, for those are gonna have, like, Don't forget they have a different last year and made playoffs. But it weren't 11. No good. They look really bad. And last after he destroyed by Cleveland there traditionally owned in the postseason. Do you look at the Pittsburgh was? The division makes the playoffs. Maybe your status spots? Yeah. You think you know better than you thought they were later this week to make that damn. It's interesting. I think this was offense. It's not going to write about this season. Even those receivers they have look Rothenberg's list and throw the ball downfield break and they didn't run the ball well, right the same. It was pretty much the same offensive over the last season, but I didn't drop it falls. Remember the receivers, not just a game against the bills, but they were going through. They're not holding England, you know, People's one went up in the air over trade white. They came up with some really nice catches the other day, but it's not like Martha's burger. All of a sudden looked rejuvenated and I love how she Harris. But what did he got? Three To be something or at 16 45. It was sometimes that's good. So we still think that office is gonna struggle. It's not gonna be that dangerous this season later, But first I'm gonna be hard precedents. Get 10 wins. Requip Negeri postgame, halftime, Most electric bills and I just I always get to this point. I don't screw them. I have a question about it, he says. I started comments continue to Twitter with the NFL is passing. But if teams are going to sit in too high safety looks to rush three or four Guys force Alan Duncan dog on the field have to make even stay with some sort of running. 20 more idea looks the passing game. You do that appear that sitting those homes making possible the offences. One game continued. Volume is happening when it started the offensive line. And we all kind of knew. That's what bills talk about. That's what we said. We have to be more efficient. They didn't say or said Run the same volume right in ST Nothing. Run it more often. So this one, This one, this one? Yeah. You want it to be better, and you brought every piece back. How does it get better? But here's to. I think you also factor this in next week, right? But the concept is talking about if you are going to say Well, basically, homes, right? Who else puts in the homes were the point, But you gotta have the right to tell me to destroy the offensive line on a regular basis. I just think that it's I guess what I'm getting to is that why is the only thing about balance? I don't know. I'm overplayed this one simple. G showed they could run if you don't you didn't write all through it exceedingly well in that game against those so probably won't like. Yeah, sure. If you were a little bit there, you'll get maybe some fear. There's some better looks. Maybe you still have to execute, execute pass there, by the way. They definitely do not like they put their offense. I can get there. I guess the check, but I doubt they started throwing ball left and run it more because you're playing and see what you're doing first. Foremost, we're trying to limit their passing game for completely blowing us up. So people been trying for three years. It's not like they've done something right there. Running under percentage of place. Run the bar on higher centre place. No, they're very much like passing gets to work so work. If we're just as easy to Pittsburgh did everything would do it. Two bills too, and lock them off. And then what? We also have to have an answer for that. And they didn't change anything about themselves to get into the base that we said they knew they needed an export needed this one thing to make everybody and they can't do it.

"That you beat sloan stevens in the first round And you know again. She came back third round french open end of last season. She was a former junior slam. Champion someone had had their eyes on. I would say not notably and yet this sort of run. I just don't think anyone expected us to happen. This soon yeah. I don't know i mean i think based on the way route o'connell played wimbledon. I think you could say that. They probably came into the us open with sort of an equal amount of earmarked attention. I mean i think even mcconnell came in with more having just qualified for the main drive. i don't think p especially the way that fernandez played over the summer was not really giving warning signs at this was Coming around the bend. I mean notably. Her father was not here with her which was an interesting question. Why wasn't he here. I mean she seemed pretty cagey about that. When when pressed on it. But i mean i mean think. Lincoln really summed up the fernandez situation best. I mean she's just was playing seemingly very much outside her level for the majority of the tournament. I mean i think she was on her way to getting decisively beaten by naomi. And i think naomi really through her that second That second winds you know playing a really bad game serving out that match. I was on ashford. It seemed like a pretty perfunctory win. For naomi by the closely hard for thought one in sets. But i came down to the media's had already to write that straight-sets match trap for naomi in it. Just the the story up to that point would be that naomi. Change your dress in the middle of the match and started a lot better But from there obviously playing the way she had against kerber the way she was able to hold up mentally against filling in that third set tiebreak. the sanca match was just You know a fascinating one. In the way she was able to hold up even after settling came back. From four two down the third. I mean Leila's competitive intensity mental toughness ability to channel the crowds energy. All those things cannot be denied. The fact that she really did not show any nerves throughout the fortnight is is is all things to be commended. I just questioned. How she replicates this. I think just based on her technique. It's not the same spiel trap that you're getting from rod connor to seem so much more airy-fairy would be a good way to put it. I mean i think in a sampling. Or she's saying you know this everything she was going for was dropping in. She just had an extra bit of to all of her shots. There was no doubt there is no question and that you know in in a in a match where there are so few such small margins those things all matter only defensive shots the things she was able to get back you know. I said this depend rothenberg him. He laughed. i said. Let's see her do this in estrada. She's not going to get the twenty thousand people on robin so restarting mental getting. Reuniting presumably back with her father Who was not here. You know kind of messing with the formula. That got you to this to this point in the us open. There's a lot of question marks for layla. In in the way that i don't have necessarily ama- it's fair. I would push back and say from an athlete standpoint. There's not a lot you know. There's i would say borderline nothing later. Fernandes can't do on a court and just we saw her in the outer thirds repeatedly whether it was against osaka weather was against fiddle. Lena and kerber and sap elanca she repeatedly answered the tasks it was like. Oh you're going to push me there. Don't worry watch what i can do..

It is a state that sees it's legitimate success in development as associated with centralized control with enormous restrictions on personal liberties and the U. S. Use the answer to people's needs in a very different way. And until not that long ago understood its vision, democracy, you know, open economies competition, You know, state playing only certain roles in society as the right model for you. No improvement in growth, etcetera. You know, there is a genuine competition out there ideologically, and it's incumbent upon the U. S to come up with a narrative. About why the values that we cherish. You don't really do produce a better outcome. Three. Us can conceivably come up with this answer, but it's It's a real challenge. It's a challenge of the moment and the Democratic model as the ideal of a system of government to deliver the goods. Has over the last several years been subject to a pretty pretty substantial challenge. In a lot of different ways, and some of those ways points to profound flaws within the U. S Democratic system and Democrats systems in different parts of the world, you know, but we I think it's really the U. S. Has not lost its leadership position in terms of in terms of many, many factors. Still the vast, you know more patents come out of the U. S. U. S entertainment industry is still dominant. The U.

But I was referring specifically the ability of a country to respond to a catastrophic event. With the plan singular response. Their argument has been looking. How how well we've done and our own our own response to the pandemic, Frankly, on the world basis has been pathetic. Well, certainly, the response of endemic has shown how important the status but it certainly isn't true that the Chinese centralized model has been the quote unquote winner. Let's look at New Zealand or Australia. I'm incredibly positive. Overall response is both of them are, you know, relatively vibrant democracy? Ideological model of the Communist Party s so you know. The U. S has failed miserably in its response to Kobe.

And some of it is just the way in which the state the executive manage that But we we did a terrible job. But that or 100,000, plus deaths. I mean, I think the whole the whole idea of our system has been. We distrust too much power in a in a central source. And there's another argument has played him in the case of a pandemic. Wouldn't it be good to have a little more centralized power to make two and two make certain things that scientists and others are telling us our rational response to this to be able to respond in a systematic fashion? But we don't we don't actually mistrust centralized power for things we like like interstate highways or the fact that airplanes Congar oh, from one place to another and not crash into each other. Or the fact that, you know, think of all the things that need together the country and it really vibrant and successful way.

Remember When? 2020
"Welcome to new challenges remaining our usually annual most years we get around to it remember when episode four twenty twenty. I've been rothenberg. Always remember my dear friend courtney win. Hi courtney how are you. I'm doing well then. And how are you happy. December happy december to you as well. We were just sort of talking before we started recording about how this like year feels very different for this show. Like remembering things experiencing things was very different in twenty twenty and there's obviously know like a very clear break on in the episode about in chronologically when we stopped when we were going to things and we stopped going to things we experienced things remotely and in person. So i'm just curious before we forget started like what was this exercise of. Try and get notes together or wherever for twenty twenty. How how did it feel in vague terms. Yeah i think the initial challenge for me was trying to divorce. How i felt about the twenty twenty tennis season literally the encore results and the story lines and the narratives of what would be normal tennis. You know under any other circumstance trying to divorce that or untangle that in my feelings about that from my feelings about two thousand twenty as a year and it you know. I don't anybody who has listened to. Ncr is throughout you know since february knows about you know the arc and the struggles. I think both of us have had with respect to once. The shutdown came and once so much uncertainty hit the tennis tour but even more so so much uncertainty hit our lives in addition to just living in the midst of a deadly global pandemic that it was just hard to care about what was happening after march. And maybe obviously. I think that that you can talk about it separately from your experience for myself. There was an uptick of that once tennis returned so once we got back to to to to work for me effectively in palermo and palermo rolled into prague and progress into lexington rolled into cincinnati new york. A and you know. It was really nonstop but my memories of january and february so being in australia and then being in doha which was my final tournament site are so much more vivid and crisp and clear in my head compared to the effectively. What eight weeks or so of tennis smith longer than that. I suppose but but tennis that we got once we returned in july. It's all very much a mushy pile of potatoes From from august on yet. Because for me. I feel very similarly and for me. It's weird because usually did remember when episodes the tricky parts. The hazy parts is january. Right is the beginning of the year. The stuff at ten eleven months has passed since we've experienced it of piecing together like. Oh yeah i remember this that whatever. And that's still kinda the case in twenty twenty like those are still like descendant memories but they're also in some ways the clearest ones we have because those are what we were there in person for. And i'm thinking about how experienced the french open which was the most recent major tennis event right. It was me sitting at my desk and my computer. Which is something i've been doing. You know in various forms since in this room since april whether it was binge-watching british game shows or watch enough it all kind of just like in the same place in senior doesn't change and we're so used to these rhythms of being along the travelling circus tour and having this scenery shift all the time. Even if the players say the same the people say the same largely lake having it. Be a moving picture in here. Only very small part of the picture. Move ray at our screens moved and so that makes it like it. It makes it much smaller. If like you're if you're watching. Were staring an envelope. Only the postage stamp is changing. It's still the same envelope and that's sort of how it feels for parts of it. So it's it's a less a lot of it's going to be a lesser visceral memories. We have things like you know even like big things like jovic getting defaulted from the us open. Let's say like a big like remember where you were when you did. That was like yeah. It was my room like it's very pinky and the brain. Like what are you going to do tonight. What are we gonna do tonight. brain. We're gonna do what we do every night. Pinky we're going to try and take over the world. It this is. The pandemic has kind of felt like that in a lot of ways. It's like what were you doing. What i did the entire pandemic. That's what i was doing when x happened when this happened. It's just like you know it. It's yeah it's it's tough. It's tough to sort it out and you're right. I think that the lack of change of scenery and just and you know as just common sense like the lack of electricity. That we in an adrenalin data today. One that we are used to enjoying not enjoying like a good time but like that we get the benefit of the adrenaline. Were running on fumes during slams. I mean like it's exhausting. It's a very high stress environment but it. It helps you to your job and here. It's like rolling out of bed every day at one thirty. A m forcing myself to go to sleep at four. Pm the night before like all of this sort of stuff you know it For weeks on end trying to get excited about something. That's happening in the middle of the night like i'm so clearly you know when we're in australia. We know what's happening in the middle of the night in the us. But it's not the middle of the night for us there but here like covering the french open at four five o'clock in the morning west coast time. It was hard. it was hard to motivate. And therefore you're distracted you're distracted you can't really focus on thing that's happening. I'm not a neurologist. Obviously but i do feel like there has to be some sort
Georgia election suppression
"Weeks georgia's republican secretary of state. Brad raffin burger pushed back against donald trump's unfounded claims of voter fraud during the general election. Becoming a hero to many of us in the process but a new report from the atlanta journal constitution finds rothenberg actually contributed to the overall disinformation campaign far more than we realize through quote imprecise and misleading statements about. His office is investigations into allegations of illegal voting in violation of state election law. The investigations reference burger undertook will far fewer and far less significant than he let on. Because there's no real evidence of fraud in georgia or anywhere else but of course you can't have voter suppression without fake claims of voter fraud. Republican election officials in counties that were crucial to biden's win have now limited the early voting options in the georgia. Senate runoffs any clear attempt to suppress turnout at a time. When voter interest is an all time high more than one point. One million votes have already been cast in the runoffs slightly fewer than the number of georgians who had voted at this point in the general election. Imagine how high that number would be without the suppression efforts.

Over the next four years. I think i really did admire their coverage and forecasting and it really did make me feel a lot more informed about the election than i've ever been had been before so yes i feel like i owe them some sort of commitment in the future but just it's been quite nice for the last twenty four hours to have let go because literally it on the entire time and it was fortunate because it meant i did see the moment that they called it. I think they were the first ones. And i know a lot of people that had it on for four straight days and then kind of miss the actual moment. My sister was complaining about that. But i i did have it on in the background. I fell asleep with cnn. On phychi consecutive nights and i dreamt about john king on both of those nights so that is the twilight zone vortex that while i was just sort of in the room with him while he was doing while he was doing his touchscreen analysis just sort of there and and part of it which was great great.

Rough on adult did not enter. Qualifying in severe novak djokovic is the confirmed year end number one for six time but unfortunately we we have to start off with something that is sort of a bigger more significant story than than all of that and a very very unpleasant one we. We've covered it Briefly appear until now in our previous podcasts and as we said i think on thursday we were expecting this big interview done by ben rothenberg as it turns out in bracket magazine one of the publications that he contributes to not the new york times as we were expected but in in rocket magazine. A a big interview and account from olea sharapova. The former girlfriend of parents finalist alexander zverev who has made allegations of physical and emotional abuse against alexander zverev. The this was a very very indepth account that she gave ben rothenberg in racket magazine. They spent two hours together at a family. Friend's house in new jersey family friend of Of sharp over. I would urge you to read the piece so that you can hear her story feel self and make up your minds about how you feel about it but it certainly incredibly harrowing and saddening account. It's very very difficult to read. She details Allegations of abuse taking place at the twenty nineteen. Us open at the labor cup in one thousand nine hundred and live in a number of incidents she alleges at serves home in monaco. Over the course of that year. She doesn't go into detail about the end of their relationship. She said that's something she may or may not tell a delay date but she talks about having her head hit against the wall about being smothered with a pillow. She talks about taking making an attempt on her own life during this period. It's an incredibly distressing account. And it's one that has been put to alexander zverev over the course of the week in paris. He obviously released that instagram statement. A week ago at the time. That sharapova initially made the allegations on her instagram we. We read out verbs statements at the time but since this more detailed account from sharapova came out of his been been given the opportunity to to comment further on off his first round win over michigan.

Louisa Thomas on the Fractured World of Tennis
"Welcome to no challenges remaining I'm Ben Rothenberg, and I'm thrilled to be joined once again on the show this year by Louisa Thomas of the New Yorker Louisa thank you for being back. We were both in DC when we last recorded, I think in February or so in my apartment. Right, early days of the pandemic I know in the early March even like right when things we saw it on horizon. Now I don't even have that apartment. And you're living in DC more full-time now and life has changed a lot and we're currently doing this from the same city different parts of DC. On Zoom. So Louisa thank you for being one of these calls. I. Will Look Forward to most today of my probably seven eight him calls today. So you have this piece of today in the New Yorker which I know you've been working on for a long time it's a very comprehensive peace about basically everything's happened since we last podcast did and also on I will thank you again for this throughout the show. But you also kind enough to come on a roundtable show. We did after the press conference that day which I want having to scrap because I waited like forty eight hours and a lot of things would you describe the peace happened which changed the tennis world typically in that time namely that Adria tour that derailing so I'm curious for you. What you were as you were trying to process tennis, they don't even too much about tennis during this time period. So as you were trying to synthesize in process tennis in everything happening Dennis for the last five months, just describe the challenge that of of trying to figure out where to start what to include, how to how to make it. All make sense as a as a writer writing for missing largely a non tennis audience. I mean I I feel like the piece looks very different than what I had originally envisioned. I mean it's sort of the story of near the pandemic for me, what I what I originally imagined. In my life was going to look like. Back in March is not at all the case you know in in March I thought, Oh, I'm gonNA write a piece about. You know about these different parts of the tennis ecosystem and how they're you know how they exist during the during the pandemic because during the shutdown because I had, you know obviously as sunset, the Tennessee is a very kind of fragmented sporting a lot of ways that the experience of a top player is not at all like the experience the double specialists, which is not at all the experience of a lower ranked player, which is not at all experienced a coach or an empire or Y- that there's A. Great Diversity of experiences. So I was originally going to do this kind of like daisy chain vignette anecdotal piece. Which I did these little portraits of people in my original idea had been to situate each each person at at Indian Wells when they learned that the tournament had been canceled and that was the piece I said about to right and actually that was the piece I originally did right? I mean this piece has gone undergone like many many many pro. You know the interest in that and I was sort of pretty happy with that approach and I think that actually one of the underlying ideas of the piece is that there is this kind of. This there's like I said this fragmentation and that was definitely reflected in that piece as well. But what happened was that like actually things started happening And what you're describing in terms of like US recording podcast and then immediately having to scrap it because you know just things change. So fast that was actually the experience of this piece as well. We were set to we were talking about running at the end of. May. Kind of in anticipation of some news of tennis coming back or not coming back or anything then. And then the protests happened and obviously the gravity of that I mean there was none of that in the piece of point. Obviously. So the gravity of that need us think well, maybe we should you know hold off for a couple of days. This is not like A. Timely piece, it can run whenever. So let's let's wait until. Maybe also think about incorporating some of tennis's response and things like that. And then you know so I kind of that piece ready. Ready to go with that, and then the US Open announced or levers like rumors about the announcement. So I was like. Well, let's hold off for that and then. You know kind of reworking at each at each stage like rewriting it and reworking and talking to more people, and you know doing a little more reporting and also just rethinking more and more about what this like this process is said about tennis and so yeah, I, mean, this piece took on many massive revisions not just because of the quality of writing any piece undergoes a lot of work. But this one I felt like I kept having to scrap it and start again because something would happen and. The thing. That was heartening though was that there was never something that made me I mean there's always something I was learning from things along the way, but there was never something that made me think I'm completely wrong. Just. Completely off, it did become less and less about kind of individual actors and more and more about how tennis kind of sets up people to be individual actors.
Knowing When to Call It Off with Mark Ein
"Welcome to new challenges. Remaining Ben Rothenberg I am happy to be joined although under unhappy circumstances third time this year enjoyed that mark. Who is the owner of the city open tournament in Washington Marksman on the show twice before this year and Talked in April about how it was likely that the tournament possible the term it could be the first one back on the calendar and what that would mean we talked in June about that. Plants are going ahead, and but then unfortunately just yesterday mark you announced that the city open will not be held in two thousand, twenty, canceling the event for the year. COMMISERATIONS. I, often, then, secondly, how how did you? Come to this decision. What sort of changed between? Now and when we when we last spoken. Yeah well always always good to be with you. Enjoy the conversation and a chance to talk through some of the. Some of the behind the scenes parts of the tennis world that I think a lot of people. Don't don't understand or get to get to get insights on. On Yeah when you and I talked, we were really excited. We were extremely cramped for them. we had made already outlawed of things were in place, and the remaining tasks that needed to get resolved or or obstacles to be overcome were all that we felt comfortable. We were GONNA be able to achieve all of those And we're heading down that path. Everything was going well, and then I would say about two weeks ago. Of everything took a U-TURN You know in the end the main reason we have to decide yesterday's. The this tournament was GonNa. Start today it was gonNA start this weekend. You couldn't host because international players at the moment can't get into America without a quarantine, and they can't get back to Europe after so You kind of have to decide. Are you GonNa? Can you know what's the chance that all gets resolved in the next three weeks and our chest obviously before three weeks? If people have to get here and that was the biggest. Factor but they said starting a couple of weeks ago, things just started heading in the wrong direction at the beginning of July, the European Union imposed. Travel restrictions on people coming from the United States. Virtually all the countries there have those travel restrictions pry in some level, made it harder for us to get the waiver for people coming here although I, I do think I think there is a reasonably good chance that those things ultimately got resolved in time for the US Open but not for us. And then it was just a series of other things. Obviously, the trend in the virus was heading in a very good place back then, and and it's obviously in a lot of America has reversed course Washington remains actually city that is in really good shape, so it's good here, but the fact that it's bad elsewhere. is problematic, and then you're disturbance, just a lot of stuff from show. We'll get into the conversation, but we lost our our bubble hotel because all their reservations for the two months after ours ended up getting canceled and. And say we can't just open for you. And then shut down till November, so now they said they were going to be shut down until November, and and they actually think it'll actually be January February before it makes them stop in. And then we went to another bubble hotel that was going to be really good to that was really excited and four days later they called US exactly the same thing, and said we're we're an and they were they couldn't. Both of them couldn't have been more sorry. They could have been more excited But just all these exogenous external events. Had An impact on them, which had an impact on Austin. It was just one thing after another, so the short version is as. We looked at the chances of being able to may have everything come together. It was was a tall order, and it really is better to make these decisions to give everyone some. Some. Time to plan you know players. I already know players were. Coming off vacation this week, the start training they all need to make their travel plans. Sponsors needed to activate. Hawkeye into the United States to get media, people people. Just it's a you know. All these tournaments are little mini, ecosystems, and just too many people were counting on it, and really sadly and disappointingly we ACCO- decide not to go forward again to some of the details of different things in a second, but I i. I'm just curious. I earned the last show you talked about sort of your general optimism in your entrepreneurial optimism and your I think. You have a very much a you know. Do added a lot of things. How hard does that make and just? Personality wise as your has businessman, your business style to to stop to sort of admit defeat on some level that this just isn't gonNA. Be Possible this year. It's the hardest part of it. Dan I literally I. It is, it cuts against every single instinct bone in my body like this is not an e. you know I wanted things I take pride in I. You know work with so many great people over the years I think the one thing I've known for is like the guy never gives up till the bitter end. And there's a lot of times people often say just give up. Just give up. It's fine. It's not meant to be. It's not I'm like no, we've got we've got a got to. Succeed, we have to get over the finish line and It's interesting because this is a very rare unique experience. I can't think of another time that it's happened, but Ben before this decision we I pulled all of our stakeholders. Everyone and people were supportive. They were they were cheering. For US people wanted the event to happen, but there wasn't a single one who went presented with the facts thought we should do something different. And so I thought maybe I'll try strategy life for once. I'll tell you how it goes right now. I feel so good. Is Not. The Way I've lived my life. But I I actually do I'm very at peace with it, our team and again I you know it's me talking, but there is a team of people. I think we're all really sad and disappointed, but we're all at peace and kill like we made the right decision.
Can Tennis Stars Be Trusted to Act Responsibly? (With Reem Abulleil)
"Welcome to no challenges remaining Ben Rothenberg delighted to be joined yet again during this corona virus hiatus from the tour by NPR's middle. East correspondent remodel rim. Thanks for being back on the show once again. Thanks for having me I like this. We're spending a lotta time together. It's honestly I been one of the Nice things about life in core is like spending a lot. We're like a lot more time with friends. I think overall to add at the time, and it's time spent like talking. Even seeing if you count Zuma's seeing friends and you know even those no in person contact and I miss that miss all the normal things like there have been. That side of it's been been nice. I will say yeah, same here. Tennis was affected as last show we did which are also on when we did a show a student to. All about for breaking news reaction to Ingrain Dmitrov tested positive for the coronavirus after playing the Adria tour, and that was believed ten days ago from recording. That was on a Sunday that next Monday, we found out that other players born storage fit your choice gate also tested positive day after that we found out that Novak Djokovic she would spearhead the tour. It was his baby. He was the face of it. He had also tested positive along with his wife. Elaina and then a few days after that Gorny Beneath Mitch, who was the director of the Dr leg of the tour in Croatia, the second stop out of what I think was going to be five originally on the tour. Had also tested positive after previously testing negative twice in his first two tests, so let's start there. be the epilogue to our last episode. What did your reaction to Adria tour change at all? Between the trump positive tests which I think we knew could be the first of many and seeing these other big players in including world number-one Djokovic also test positive, and I will before authority also. We have no idea how many other people stand staff organizers media. Media, Whoever hotel workers, whoever at the around the Asia tour also tested positive? So what are your thoughts for the further fall out of I think as soon as I heard about born Torridge, which was the second that we found out about an we also heard about Gregoire's coach. Novak's physio. Those were like the first four I figured. It's not surprising if almost. Almost everybody else got it because there was just so much close contact between them. The whole time they play doubles together. They party together. They did so like it's. It's not surprising so by the time. Yeah, like after after the second wave of tests, I felt like I expected the pretty much everyone positive so actually I was more surprised at the negatives tests. Tests than the alternative ones, but I think the the biggest thing that stands out obviously for me. In terms of the different thing is that Goran tested negative twice and then tested positive, so that kind of gave us more Obviously, we know that that can happen, but the fact that everyone who was kind of defending the tour. Everyone who is getting? Everyone. Who thinks that oh? If I'm negative? I can go play another tournament. Someone like another term all that stuff that kind of with Goran testing positive. I guess it was A. Kind of a cautionary tale for everybody else guys happened with Goran I think I think it is a really useful real world example honestly. We know about this incubation timely theoretically, but hearing someone like around been a little bit stride into the beginning. He was the one who is announcing it on court. Instead Darwin the tournament was stopping there or when the event was stopping in Chicago. Tournament when the event was. Stop there, saying Hey, don't blame me, I. Don't have coronavirus. It's not you know I didn't do it. Essentially it was. Sort of said somewhat ingest on court at when he was sentenced. Georgia Jovovich, that's the cancellation and see him. Yeah, that's positive. Eventually the show like yes, we know intellectually seeing a real world. Example of someone had not delayed time. Yeah, it does does make realize. Hey, you really. That's why we're doing. The fourteen days stay inside where people are doing that. When they possibly exposed or other things to make sure they don't have it incubating and yeah. THAT GETS TO DONALD team a start with him. I think there's. Say That team. The team comes up from. Adria tour and goes to play the UPS. Just the ultimate showdown event held the more Academy in France. And he gets tested upon arriving. There tested multiple times there from what he was saying in. He makes a joke that he's the interviews. The his most negative guy on tour which some people thought was in poor taste. Honestly have demonstra problem with understood it. If you've been had blood drawn six times in a week if you're allowed to make a joke about it. It, but at the same time I don't know. He's playing and I wish he was not playing. I. Just don't think it's worth the risk for having candidate playing tennis. If I was holding tennis admit that had previously booked dominic team I would say sorry, but we're gonNA. Cancel your appearance of the tournament. We don't want anyone who's been clearly exposed to the. gorgias stick corona virus cauldron. That was Adria tour to come here I. think that just negative within the window is not enough to show that you're not possibly caring and or contagious we we've done that now. Seeing team, go from the the ups to pull out of that to go to various other events and he. He's scheduled to play Austria an accident going to go play in Germany after that I. it just seems like he's just trying his. He's really working overtime. Trying to be patient zero as possible.
A Tennis Star Catches COVID-19
"Welcome the no challenges remaining. It is Sunday. June twenty first twenty, twenty I am Ben Rothenberg I was working on posting are editing an episode that I recorded a couple days ago with buddies and frequent guests, this show remobilize into all and Louisa Thomas also this episode for the beginning of it. round table talking about the open their plans etcetera etcetera. Then a couple less than an hour ago, there was a posted popped up. I think I dream and remained Toumani. Join me again hello. Hello. Irene was the first one is. If I saw a post, this poster came up on your instagram feed, and can you describe what you saw instagram? Basically posted a photo of himself with a mask, announcing that he is back in Monaco and tested positive for covid nineteen an he apologized for possibly endangering others so yeah, it was him basically disclosing that he has positive, and as we know agree, gorgeous got back from Croatia where he was playing in the Adria tour and a couple of days before that he was playing in Belgrade as well, so he's playing Novak store, and yeah, and we mentioned that obviously on the podcast we recorded two days ago. I it it should be noted that we've seen many patriots of Griego over the past couple of weeks. But that's the first pitcher. We've seen what I'm wearing a mosque. Stu Point to money no I think. Yeah, so this is sort of tenses. Thing hopefully it get to a Rudy Gobert moment in tennis where Gregoire realized I have nothing fallen close attention, paying close attention to the Adria tour, but grew on court yesterday a Saturday in Croatia playing a match inside our Croatia as part of this Adria series traveling around the Balkans he was in. Serbia and we talked about this. A bunch on the show and I think I will probably still. Post the show recorded before, but I feel like this will change the tenor of its I want to post these. Get this one up I throw show that we are connected to reality more than maybe the other episode from two days ago because I think as Louisa, early people say on the show like. In these times a lock change short period of time, this is obviously a big moment for tennis. One that I think it's fair to say that we all feared was very possible with looking at Adria series, which is exhibition event sort of started by Novak Djokovic determined director. Quote Unquote was Georgia Djokovic of ex brother. It was being held in Belgrade and a few other planned stops around the Balkans They just actually after the news of Dmitrov positive test. They just can't sold the final match of today's session in. Montenegro which was supposed to host next weekend had already said thanks, but no thanks to Adria tour canceled their leg of the event. We sort of imagined Asia tour, which was an event. Whichever one you twenty? How about you described? He described what what we saw because he posted a bunch of photos. From recent days what Adrian Tour Bend like the got people concerned something this. Business was sending. The optics are not good. Let's put it charitably that way. Yes essentially what we've seen is What is a very regular event in very abnormal times you know? Whether it's you look on twitter on on streams on on Youtube big crowds in the stadium at Novak's Club scene players. And hands and invading each other's personal space and Interacting with fans you've seen videos of. Them are on the out in a club stripping together. and. Will these images that would be normal in normal times, but these aren't normal times, and it makes you cringe a bit. And so there there there's been tons of criticism and. Of course. Rich kind of. Received a lot of criticism for an we actually spoke. To US ball. And he said kind of that. He's aware of the criticism from the West. But you know what while things may be bad in the UK or the, us, it's not. It's not the same in Serbia. And, yeah, and for that reason you know people have been kind of reacting to that and reacting badly, and that's kind of where we. Can I add? They also had a kids day. That had a lot of kids. We've seen the photo of that as well and they've had a football match, and they've had a basketball match in Croatia. They went to a concert with Donovan John August the new version others the other day, and the thing is you have players who came from countries. Who aren't Serbia and Croatia in that? You have you have players someone like Gregoire? Who flew from the states, then winces Bulgaria, possibly also to Monaco. You also have such as Vera. Vera who's traveling from different places Sasha's also saddlebrook for quite a big portion of the quarantine time you have people traveling from different places, and they got off the plane, and you see the video of them getting off the plane and immediately hugging Novak, and immediately being welcomed people into walking around the no masks I don't understand how you can get a flight and already know that that person that person didn't have time to get tested, so that already was
"Welcome to new challenges remaining I am. Ben Rothenberg I'm lead on this show to be joined by Patrick Moore. The founder of the Motagua Academy coach of Serena Williams and more recently, the creator of the ultimate tennis showdown UTSA, which is one of the events springing up during this crooner virus stoppage that continues on the tours, so Patrick is here to talk about his new ups products, but also a couple other things large more largely in the sport in general to talk about emotion, antennas change in tennis room for growth in tennis as well as some of the more recent news around proposals around the US Open where limit players only having one entourage member with them onsite per player, and also how his charged Serena Williams is handling this stoppage in tour. Among other things hope you enjoy this. I've wanted to have patrick on for a long time so I'm glad to get him today here. He is help you enjoy. Very said V joined here by Patrick more talk to talk about the ultimate tennis showdown ups which you've started up. Thanks for being here for civil and I'm curious. Just this idea you had for. UTSA is this something that you had an idea for before? Or is this purely been sort of a Brainchild of this of the stop time on on tour. is both. I've been thinking about it for a long time because I aware that the average age of the fan of tennis is getting older where at sixty one years old now and it's getting older every year so. This sense, quite a lot of messages to us the first mets. A message is that. The core fans of tennis have very loyal to tennis. The started to love is probably in the seventies and eighties steel here for two years old fifty years afterwards shows that. Tennis is very addictive. It's it's a great sport, so we keep our fence, but it says also that we're not renewing our fund base so we not getting New People on board especially not. Not many young people so I thought that Dennis needed something else I'm not saying that. The ATP W have to change and the. Grand Slam something. He's great also to tradition I think they're also doing a good job at. Making their fence happy because they're still here for fifty years after, but I think it's important also to get New People on board to To to to grow the fan base of tennis, and especially to to renew its so I think for that. We need a second second league. That is more modern. That is different that proposes A. Product you can do. It doesn't sound good for sport, but it is a product because it's. Not Product a product that. That is more that. Faster more dynamic, more interactive, more modern. And that's what's better. The younger generations already interested in marketing for that can see you guys having a lot of fun with this or just taking it I want to say less seriously, but you know the the the nicknames for players that come out like. The Greek God and you know we the French flair and Matteo. Bertini the hammer like these are not things that you would have seen Wimbledon do. Had this been normal tour year right now and so I. I guess I'm curious. You're somebody who I think you know from seeing your. Thoughts on different things and you're somebody who gets thanks tennis should be. Has Room to be a lot looser, right? A lot less tied to tradition into being serious all the time potentially Zephyr. Yes but I'm a tennis fan since four years old. I gave everything I had for tennis and an often is also the way it is. So I understand that the core fans don't want change. I think steal the could be some slight changes, but. But. Basically I like tennis. The way it is is just that We don't take ourselves seriously. We WanNA. Have Fun we WANNA. Enjoy won't for me. sports is has to be all these. It has to be fun. It has to be emotional. It has to be interactive and especially in our world in twenty twenty, the will change so much and the way consumers. Watch sports and video in general. Has Changed so much in the last years I think it's important to propose a different way to Turkistan is for that reason. If we want to get you, get you offense on board. That's the only way and we have to consider also that the offer is so much bigger than what he what it used to be. The is now you have so many different sports. You have gaming. Older Serres. There are so many different. Options, so if your product is slow complicated or you need to invest three hours, minimum or two and a half hours. You have no chance to get the young people so I. Think it's very complimentary. I think both leaks can really live will next to each other and feed each other. Actually
Calling Tennis Remotely, with Ravi Ubha
"Welcome to new challenges remaining. I'm Ben Rothenberg as millions of folks around the world enter their third month of adjusting to working remotely I thought this might be a good time to share the experiences of what it's like to work remotely in tennis when tennis is a sport that sts professionally which doesn't really currently and much of the world feed commentary on the tennis matches you watch at home is delivered from a world away from the courts where the matches are taking place and one of the Veterans of this craft is. Ravi who also works on site at tournaments as a freelance reporter. So foot both the close the distant kind of work in Tennessee. So Ravi will describe here what. It's like working in broadcasting rotely at lifestyle of being distant from the courts and the challenges of creating atmosphere. A place that you're nowhere near so hopefully you will find this interesting. Maybe a little bit resident in these times of distance working that we're all living in and general distance. This interview was recorded near the end of this year's Australian. Open as you'll be able to tell but hopefully it has some some meaning residents or something in our lives. Today here is Ravi. I'm thrilled to be joined on this episode by my friend Robbie who is aware of many different hats in the tennis world. He is this week at the Australian Open. As we record this on my I'll and the pressroom and I'll made of mine as we walked back and forth press conferences and whatever else and share reactions to whatever missed overheads and such happened at once. He's one of those voices in unison gasping and signing and also a voice that I hear actually on the TV and watching at home as a frequent world feed commentator tennis Ravi. Thank you for being here. Ben My pleasure. Thank you for people who maybe more or less with you. Just how did you get into tennis? I in your life. How did you for make the jump into doing it as a career? In my life I grew up in Canada so It surprises me that I actually got into tennis. Because as you know. It's a big hockey country at my earliest memories at home when I was a little kid. Four or five watching the US Open in the background was on TV. Washington handle who? I think. He's my idol. When it comes to sportsman was younger so it started from that Played my whole life. Love playing very regularly and then got into it You know my profession and when I moved to London I was in the early two thousands. I is really a writer and thereafter going into the booth and doing You know share a picture of of commentating and TV work also. So how'd so the writing we've got a lot of show or other writing side of its. I'm more curious about how you make that. Jump how you go from being on the page. What was your first time being behind a microphone? I remember it well. It was a two thousand nine. I was asked to do a Davis Cup tie between Russia and Russia and Romania And so I did that s skew. Kinda thing. Yeah it was actually victor. S Q in McCall usually my first match. Oh I remember well and I think it was because they were looking for people who who just new tennis and covered tennis and as somebody who grew up broadcasting also. I was reported in Montreal where I grew up doing TV. I think they knew that. And they just stick. Okay let's Let's bring him in on something I wanted to do. So it really started from my point. According I've done a lot of tennis radio. Color Commentary. Saddam that different from doing TV. But I'm curious what as you got more into? Tv having been a writer having been a reporter. What skills are translated into what once? Don't translate what he to learn on that new in this new role well it For example the attention to detail that you have in imprinted writing. I think that's very helpful when it comes to being in the booth you know when digging up statistics knowing where to look and knowing how to get them to look for the inside stuff rather than just the basic statistics. I saw you antennas abstract on your computer just nine. Yeah for sure a great website. That's that's something that I bring with me. On the print side things that are different You know you know went to jump jump in and out to in went to Q. Out I'd also just broadcasting is a different is a different also voice. Really when you're as to when you're talking somebody like as we're chatting but now it's it's a different voice you put on. You also have to learn. Went to kind of hit your spots when it comes to nailing down for example phrases after a particular matches. Done you WanNa with a big extra It's not exactly the lead on when it's so important for peace pace but it's kind of the big finish in broadcasting so that there are little things like that they're different is that. I think you become more accustomed to as you do more shoe and actually imprint. They really don't emphasize most editors or papers or publications don emphasize ending so much. Onto a real sign off they most articles fade out or some editors sort of cut from the bottom which is frustrating when that happens because the idea try to put endings on Surrey generally. Bs that when did. When did it become a more full-time thing for you? And how did sort of adding work in that particular line? Is it same as other freelance work or is it different? Yeah no it's pretty much since the I would say two thousand thirteen fourteen and I I would say it's become more of doing that Rather than writing than before it was kind of opposite. He's been more of the writing than the broadcast. I always say since two thousand and thirteen and fourteen. I've lucky enough to to do a lot and it's something I love doing. I mean I sat on the air sometimes tournaments that you know. It's such an honor privileged to be doing it because as a tennis fan my whole life you know. Don't consider it a job. I'm very lucky doing something I really really love. And that's all really can ask for you. Mentioned sort of how the attention to detail in the writing can help the TV. Tv helped the writing effort to go the other direction too. Well helps in the sense that I get to watch a lot of tennis I believe and so I think I have a pretty good grasp of the players so it helps to foster ideas because you know for example. I'll give you an example I was watching an accommodated a master on the Brazilian player. A couple of years ago Eliane Pereira And I was digging up homework doing research for her master when she was playing at home. And I just read Interesting stuff about her. How she grew up in really extreme poverty you know. She didn't have a bathroom in her house. She had her bathroom in kind of the back garden. And so I thought well that'd be nice idea to do a longer feature a long story on inside that Saranda presumably written for the time. Remember that So it does help I mean and I think Ben as you know the more you homework you do on any subject on any play you realize that every player has a great story or has a story to tell I think that's the lesson that I learned. I try to bring them in the booth especially at times when a match is getting out of hand when it's not it's not as dramatic in oak at six one five two or six one three love. Matt out of Control. I think you want to sprinkle in those nuggets Talk about other stuff rather than you know the rallies techniques stuff.
How to Begin to Restart, with Mark Ein
"Welcome to no challenges remaining. I am Ben Rothenberg on this week's show. I am joined by Mark On. Who was the owner of the city open tennis tournament on the ATP and W T tour which is held annually in Rookery Park in Washington DC is a terminus Ben at the same venue for fifty years as a big standing tradition in the summer tennis calendar in the United States and it's also potentially the next tennis term on the calendar with a bunch of determines before it having been canceled is only April but already we know that there will be no European clay court season at least pre Wimbledon and all the grass season has gone so Washington suddenly stands in April as the next big landmark on the tennis horizon with being the first big combined? Atp WTI tournament still on the schedule currently so with that in mind? We talk mark about what it's been like this while is uncertainty different contingencies. That are being talked about in the tenth world and hopefully you'll find this conversation illuminating in these strange murky times. Here's mark very happy to be joined on the show today by mark on who is. The owner of the city opened the Washington tennis tournament Washington. Summer tennis tradition I believe is your slogan eighteen. Wto tours the annual stuff every late July early August although this year obviously there's a lot of uncertainty in the air so mark. Thank you very much for being on here and chatting in this in this weird moment. We're having appreciate it. Always always great to chat. And and Ben. That's more than a slogan it is. It's true no it's true. It is washing summer tennis tradition. I one of the first times I went to the city opened which was send the League Mason Tennis Classic Back in the Ninety S. I want actually WANNA radio contests for tickets for some. I forget what the Trivia question was by some trivia question and they asked me which days I wanted tickets forge session for. They gave me like all possible sessions and I picked the final Michael. Chang wanted that year and remember that so I remember that one and I might started mine. Vomit tournament is a ball kid when I was twelve years old. So for Eddie dibbs and Harold Solomon engage. All short guys like myself a shot. I thought that they might actually be on the court someday. But that didn't happen to turn this into Eddie. Dibbs podcast briefly. I believe I believe he was the one that came up with the term Bagel that sort of his lasting like they were they were the Bagel brothers. Eddie dibbs Herald Sun Herald was from Silver Spring Maryland. Down the street so there's Great Danes as Gray Days. So you own the tournaments. Since last year the term it was in danger of moving out of DC and it was for sale in you bought it and kept it in DC. Which I many others are grateful for. I'm just curious how. How is your first year owning attorney? What was that first experience? Like as you've been in tennis for a long time and other other serves two roles but was that experience like and I guess looking forward a little bit. What kind of stuff we are looking forward to for for twenty twenty. I'm it was. It was fantastic and we really had is a great fifty year old man. It's the fifth biggest tournament the United States one of only the only ATP five hundred in the United States and one of only five combined events and You know it was a really terrific event but we had this vision for how we can take to to totally new level and so even though we got it we literally only got control of it. In March I thank so it was a real sprint to get it ready. You know I think we did we really. I think revolutionized the event can complete change in the site. The Food and beverage the player experience. Everything we really wanted to touch. Every single component of the event our motto was that we would never say. We're doing something because that's the way it was done in the past where we're going to try to thank. Outta do things differently and you know. The results were incredible. We broke every record. The tournaments ever had everything shattered them on and what was really great. Was that when we started the week? It look good but it didn't look like it was going to break records that people came to the site and went to the new food area and tried the food people like Jose. Andres and people locally. We had the best ice cream plays July. The best coffee plays the best burger plays. Moei came and did stuff of through word of mouth it. Just people started coming incoming. We ended up selling out seven of the eleven sessions. And I think what it just showed to me. Was that tennis as we know from events like Indian Wells and the US Open and a whole lot of events when it's done well a high level people respond tenants fans common. They love it but then other people come. I think that was really rewarding to just see this great reaction and our team work really hard and so it's really gratifying. And then yeah we didn't I mean we we were. We are planning on building on last year. We have a whole set of new food and beverage partners new seating areas a whole bunch of stuff that we were about to launch the campaign to talk to people about in Indian Wells and obviously that was the first event to be cancelled and we also put a pause on our marketing efforts. It seems like in the current state of the world. That's not the most important thing but whenever we pick it up hopefully this year or whenever it is we're going to build on last year and just keep building and growing and We have really high really high goals for that sort of the moment. I think that everybody in tennis will point to is sort of when things got real and the corona virus situation for tennis getting cancelled which has happened very shortly before that terminus supposed to start the day before quality started. What was your reaction to that news and I guess had you had already been on your radar from from the city open perspective before then or was that really the wake up call moment. I think that was kind of I mean. There is a series of you. Know a series of things happen that heightened your sensitivity to it But that was maybe the tablets to saying. Oh Wow this is different back as soon as it happened. I texted one of my best friend who happens to own an NBA team. And I sent him a note and I said this isn't just for. Tennessee is big for all of sports. Because you know at that point no one had cancelled any. It wasn't just the percentage of that. It was the first major sporting event to be full. And Yeah and here. We are today. So yeah that whole time and and you know Indian Wells really is a mecca for everyone in the tennis world the whole global tennis community flocks there every year. And it's almost five hundred thousand kids almost big as the French Open or close to beg so some of that size and scale gets cancelled. It's opened a lot of people's lives up to the issue. We're dealing with what once you're once. You're that sort of alert happens. Then I guess. Obviously all the children's center immediately after that our media on standby like Miami Charleston. Houston but for you what. What was your thought process on how I'm watching? The ripples of this work their way through the calendar. You know it's so interesting ban. I mean that was not even I guess it was just about a month ago and you just today. We know so much more 'cause we're all quasi obsessed with every little detail of this if you can put yourself back to where we were a month ago. We had no idea about tests vaccines and treatments and social distancing. I don't think that at the time we necessarily at all thought. Oh this is gonNA endanger the prospects of hosting. The city opened obviously enters. Your mind was totally unknown. What we were dealing with a month ago and obviously all know so much more today but back then we thought. Maybe it's a possibility but we definitely didn't think that it was a foregone conclusion. What does this last month? Ben Like for you. What is it like sort of from this event? Obviously everyone's lives period. You're staying indoors like everybody else. I'm sure but what is your just from the from the Tennis City Open Van Vantage Point? What is it been like for this month or so? Yeah I mean look. The first thing that I focused on was just make sure my family is safe and healthy and that we were set up in a way so that everyone in the family would be okay. That was the first thing and then frankly bend the the next thing I had to focus on. Is that we have you know we own our own a lot of a bunch of companies and I really wanted to make sure that and it was clear this was going to be a rough economic time and so I wanted to make sure the people who work in those companies were in good shape as possible and I'm really proud that as of today we haven't had zero layoffs furloughs salary reduction just because we've been laser focused on figuring out how to. Mirol in pretty good shape and had resources but also just really protecting the people who work in those companies was my next priority so even I'm not going to the office. I'm working. I think I work pretty hard and I'm working harder now than ever just trying to do that. And then you know and then there is a lot of work around planning for the city open and it's different because it's not in front of us. Obviously I wanted to make sure the team that works on. It is safe so we were very early and having people work from home. And now we're just scenario planning bandit some you know. There's really four scenarios one is the event goes off as usual To is is that it goes off without fans which is the topic of a Lotta conversation in a lot of sports. Three is a hybrid where it goes off but there are some fans an enforce. Obviously it's cancelled and You know we're doing everything we can to problem solve and be creative to find a way that we can do it somehow but it only is going to happen if we can assure that it's safe for people And so just a huge amount of work going into China. Figure that out.
Courtsiding with Brad Hutchins
"Welcome to no challenges remaining. I've been Rothenberg delighted to be joined by a friend on the opposite side of the world. Me In this episode Brad Hutchinson. Who is the author of the Book Game? Set Cash Previously worked in tennis. No longer does is currently a teacher who just came back from surfing on the Gold Coast in Queens so much as like a delightfully outdoor. Wonderful escape all of us are indoors. Nowhere near Surf. Mostly but Brad hope you're doing well and enjoying the weird time in the world especially can't be right now. Yeah absolutely pretty fortunate to be able to still get outside when a lot of people Locked in say how long lost four. I'm just trying to make the most of it will have. The opportunity is doing as during the tennis tour. Hiatus for doing stuff on different tenants and books and your book was one of the ones. I most enjoyed that read in the last few years. Game set cash and it all centers around the job used to have in Tennessee in Tennessee around tennis. At least I guess. Can you tell a story and get into the details of this? Moore's we go along but of how you I sort of founded employment opportunity with Tennyson with that with that presented itself as hey I heard about it. Yeah thanks man So I I heard about it when I was living in share house in London. This is tat over ten years ago. Now and one of the goals are linked with would always disappear and I didn't know where he was going. He's off to China or Russia. Row over these flung destinations and I knew that he had a job working at tennis. But I didn't really know what it was. It took a wall of probing to where he was back from his trips to to cigarette what he did and a real author while he was a cold solder and He was. He was flying around the world to these matches and report. The school was back to a group that he was working with the syndicate. Who would gamble on the tennis And a mad enough for profit out of it to be able to afford to send him around the world so you could sit courtside and have tickets to the tennis to all of the matches and and do that so a condos tested him to to get on board after all. Because I like the idea of getting paid to travel and Yeah it took. It took a couple of years for that to actually eventuate A few of my other friends who were in the Shea House kind of got involved as well and I went. I lived in Canada for wall and did some more traveling and then finally off it was. It was lucky Tommy just as I return high for a few years of travel. I got an email saying okay. You'RE UP WE'VE We've got a position in any modern for it so sin three resume Which is funny because I actually did have to do that. For a pretty informal job but Yeah they they got me on board. And then I worked as a cold solder for about two years Fulltime the tour is going around the world to different matches and they had the Tom Malakhov. Let let's pause there. Would you were sort of pestering. You're this. This has made ears for information on his job. What did he do? What did because I'm guessing? You had not heard of court citing before you talked to him so was it. How did he explain this occupation of his? And did it make sense? See right away. It didn't make sense to May straightaway at all. Because I wasn't much of a gambler. I love tennis but I didn't really have. Industry existed which is kind of what prompted me to write the book at the end of the role because not many do So he would bring home. These old looking finds that that they could be programmed differently. And this is back when you know I think the first couple of offense to just come out but not many people use them. So Abe was using these Kind of knock is and programming up and would have a program on the way you could transmit the school as if you had a school board on your fine so he would love. The schools from the stands sitting there watching the match That would go back. It would be linked up with the database in the UK. Go Straight back there and that would would get fade into the system and then it would be better pawn To build a physician and generally speaking people who are doing that are using bits as their website of choice. Bet they can back in light pleasant tron build a position and stay. Do better the correct Tom they can. They can put themselves in a win win situation which is ideal or they can go on. So you think is GonNa come through so Gradually kind of started to learn about this strategy. Involved in it the technology involved and the very con of Funny Little Game of cat-and-mouse that was involved as trying to avoid security and get away with doing it so just stop again there. So he's basically sitting courtside or sits in a tennis stadium. Radha tennis court somewhere at a pro tennis match usually on the main tour at a grand slam or sometimes the challenge against and will hit a button on their phone after every point to transmit the score somewhere else to usually to someone working at a computer at central office central location in that person than updates an algorithm which usually which which then informs how bets are placed and the Benny Market Bet Fair which is not like attritional bookie. But it's more I don't need to get. That fair is confusing. People who understand gamble too much. I don't WanNa get too deep into bet fair but that fairy as sort of a gambling market where people buy shares bet against each other. Yeah Yeah it's not your traditional kind of the House always wins situation. It's it's people betting against each other You know so they wanNA take a certain point in the match and someone else's put those odds up then they can Which allows for a lot more opportunity? And there's a mock there with a lot of liquidity lot of money moving and it's used by people around the world so it's become the main kind of area for people to who according t to us And Yeah We. We kind of did that. We had an algorithm lucky mentioned And that would that would automatically night decisions about how the bits replaced. So that's Pretty advanced Maths involved in that sort of things. I didn't get into that too much with developing it but I would buy feed the schools into the phone and it would fade into the algorithm and then the rest would get done at the back end so to speak where everything's processed yes Brought a big article about court citing featured you in a couple of years for racket and referred to it as like a really through adventurous data. Entry job basically. You're just sort of sitting. There added tennis courts somewhere in the world and I was in Brisbane. Is that right through your home. Tournament was your yes. My hometown was born. Brisbane said out was quite fitting. Yes so so. You're just sitting there. Just sort of talk through your day is of course setter. So you're just you get told what matches go to and you sit there and you just push a button. Every time a finishes is it that simple. We'd see the schedule of play. We'd pick which matches guy so usually there would be a few of us at each tournament and Wade Spread the matches between us. And then you head to court get ready. Sit Down if you want to say you're going to go to the baseline behind the plays so you can see you. Got The best view of where the ball's going You kind of have to plan ahead. Dykes half the time. You're sitting in the sun so you you got to wear sunscreen. GotTa Half Sunscreen in your bag. Go to have some food and water with you. Got To be prepared to just sit on courts. Have Long that much goes for you. Know if you're a grand slam that could be six hours so Yeah you kind of just get a good seat. Strap in and the you know you've got to be kind to people around you and chat to them if they're friendly but at the same time focus on what's going on in front of you and try and stay focus for the duration of that whole match even when there's breaks because if a player gets injured all goes off to see the training you have to be on top of that because pivotal right so the match swings in the bedding so is it fun. Is it easy is boring. I mean what does it like? Having to sort of push a button after every point and they're even even in a long match. It's it's hundreds of times a three-set matches probably I don't know roughly. Roughly two hundred points can be. Yep So if you've got a you know it can be mundane. You can have juice. The goes back and forth forever. There'd be set in place that would really bully. And there's other players that a scintillating to watch and that would really get sucked into it but at the same time you have to detach from just being spectator And actually do your job as well. So it's it's go mixture of everything you know. It can be super exciting if you're doing your best of three sets tiebreaker. You're on the edge of your seat every point and you have to be on top of that because it's it's really big money that's swinging big wise each on so you really have to be into it and then you can also have those moments in the day where you're just bored out of your Bryan. You've watched a million points of tennis in the last few days and is sick of it but you're also in a different country. Usually he's got a group of friends around that you can look forward to going travelling and kind of start seeing light of day and the. There's a lot going on so all in all it was a a really exciting kind of lost all but You know Lucky said at the end of the diets daughter. Intrigue Job and that's essentially the seating they clicking buttons and we used to call ourselves the monkeys on the button. Sometimes Joklik a monkey could do job but at the same time. There's there's more to it you have to really be on top of it

Hashtag girls can be heroes to stories written by insider and has been described as the devil wears product meets the exciting world professional tennis. Thank you for funding these things together. I'm excited I'm curious if you just give us a bio on yourself yet your tennis how you got into the sport before being in a professional and then once you've made it your your job. Yeah I was always obsessed with Tennessee's young girl. I had a very large crush on John. Mcenroe's I exactly the first drops of the book which were much more autobiographical had humanist But he got ripped out for the. Don't sue aspect of the game. They still have that first draft and I do. I do the right amount of money. Probably the Louis exactly exactly exactly at one point. We will do actual autobiography rather than thinly. Valves Dennis yes so sort of my my career of set a ninety six billion tennis but before eleven love with John McEnroe. Tennis was wonderful so I was doing real world jobs. I had a degree in marketing. Doing some marketing jobs Unfulfilled obvious is really boring. Fifty doing this crap and then was up one night watching Wimbledon with the Australian Times on the middle of the night watching watching love. And I'm interested in anything actually interested in these these copy of real job. He can't really working tennis for job. Scholley and show you guys have had signed that real job. And then that's how I started talking to people and following Lukine tross a who was a WHO and who and what contacted staff go to a job as an assistant the Sydney tournament it was the Pacers international which was really just about eating ice cream. Pink cream you started working on the tour then as a as a communications that was just looking for a tournament and a little bit of that and then eventually got my wife and got off at a job. Wti side out of that at the beginning of this century thousand new millennium new New Korean. Your life all that stuff sound starring. I our member saying to a bunch of people who've been working on the two of ages Michael Michael five-star hotels and you're GonNa have locker room service. And why? How could anyone ever big this? And they were like just white you ways we could you get sick of this and then I found out a nonstop sort of hamster wheel type situation very off day. Traveling Circus Right. You go and you sit you go to. It's such a weird rhythm rate because I traveled with the tour and pretty much tour of a fairly full schedule and yeah I like from the outside in every. How could you not love this when you get to watch tennis all day? You get to say at the Hilton here. The Mary out there the intercontinental here. The four seasons in Saint Petersburg get private cars get fed. All Braille true. Isn't it all true that that's not? That's not true but I'm curious to save you. When did it start to turn to be like? I mean. This is still a job though? I remember sitting in an airport on a wider Dubai. And that was it was well cost ten years into my time traveling fulltime with WTI and being straight in a lot. More since. I had to give living in Australia. Who Five you'd have two weeks off my take on like kill me. Now look on high intake dies of trying to get the lay off to come back. I remember seeing in an airport and wanting to cry because I was like I didn't WanNa be online new and then strangely enough coverage. I had the brand manager job for the promised me I will do. Minimal travel what ally that will come
"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

Daniil Medvedev claims first Masters title in Cincinatti
"The world's best men's tennis player at least at this moment is deal medvedev going into last week. The twenty-three-year-old russian had made two consecutive tournament finals here in washington d._c. And then in montreal then this past week in cincinnati he we used huge first and second serves and really solid for hands back ends to beat world number-one electric in the semi finals and divvied viewed goffin in the final to win the biggest title of his career and move up to a career-high number five in the world behind only jovic rafael nidal roger federer and dominic team stephens hero. The eighth ranked stefanos citybus. Thank you is owen foreign his career against gets medvedev seats apostol ben rothenberg last week than medvedev plays sloppy adding. It's good sloppy. 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. Us open tournament director brian earley who you may remember as the guy who came on the court during last year's yes open final when serena williams demanded to speak to the terminent director during her her conflict with chair umpire carlos ramos early ruled that there was no violation of quote grand slam code of conduct and that quote the evidence events was inconclusive as to the intent of mr hewitt's remarks to the chair umpire q._a. for his part said i come from a multicultural country. 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
NFL Draft Rumors: Picks for the Raiders, Jets, and Giants
"Now. Let's get into the raiders because they are very very interesting. They've sent everybody away. It's like, it's like survivor. There's two guys on an island. You got Mayock. You got Gruden no one else is around anywhere near the organization right now. And I read something that they said for fear that you know, they're big plan. Could get thrown to the wolves. What what possibly could this dynamic huge groundbreaking attempt. Be for the Oakland Raiders got insane. As we heard everyone connected to them literally Quinton Williams Devon why at Oliver and now. The most recent name is to Wayne Haskins. Now, I know a lot of raiders spans laugh at thought of that. But this is where it gets really interesting division in Oakland right now is that there are coaches there that really liked main Haskins. They're also coaches there that are not sold their car is the future. So is Oakland sitting there four knowing that Wayne Haskins might fall into their lap or hoping he falls into their lap. There's a lot of rumors about that right now. Or are they trying to play someone to train up with the jets to Oakland gift Quinton Williams? That's kind of where I'm weaning right now. I do think they want the jets to get out of that pick in fear that if they don't the general take when Williams and that's been there guy all along. This is a team that needs stars on the defensive line because they traded Khalil Mack. They don't have any. I know they use a lot of picks Matt area last year. I think Mary's hers could be an okay player. PJ hall hasn't shown anything yet right now. So Oakland all options are on the table for them right now. And it's very very interesting. All right. So if Haskins goes three and Williams. Does four Naida Tampa at five with Devon white. And Josh Allen still on the board. I think it would be I think Todd Bowles, I know Todd Bowles pick their and Lee here when he was in New York that was Todd Bowles spic you want speed at linebacker. He wants leadership at linebacker Tampa has loved Devon white for months now. I think if he's sitting there at five they would celebrate with happiness that they didn't have to move to get him. So you were telling me now that the way we just went through the MacIntosh of the first five picks. There's a legitimate chance that my New York football giants are landing maybe an elite talent edge rusher. Sixth overall in Josh Allen. I wouldn't rule it out at all. I would not rule that out at all. They get the guy who originally originally from jersey. Now, the interesting thing was the giants here. I have a belief that they've Gettleman has done a really nice job for once here with the smokescreens. And that the giants wanna quarterback at six as much as we keep hearing. They are content taking one at seventeen there's not even the guaranteed that. There will be one is seventeen. I don't see how team can take that kind of risk. So who? Do you think he likes because you know, I'm based out of New York, and we try to break down the code every day. And we just we have no idea of what's going on half the time. Do you look at him and say he likes Jones, we've heard that lock. We've heard that everyone seems to be opposed. The fact that Dwayne Haskins if someone who's interested in then lately for the rumor keyed up and maybe Josh Rosen lands to the New York Giants at some point. Yeah. There's a lot of sect year. I think they, you know, obviously, Daniel Jones there was a lot of smoke around them taking him at seventeen.
Trump visits Pittsburgh to console but stirs anger among protesters
"Asked the president and first lady arrived to pay their respects to the eleven victims of Saturday's synagogue massacre, also at the temple on this trip. President Trump's daughter Ivanka and her husband, Jared Kushner, the president's presence turned sadness to anger for demonstrator Reverend Susan Rothenberg. This is. ABC's Pete combs joins us on the KOMO news line from Pittsburgh where the first three funerals were held today and emotions just must be so raw their Pete, absolutely emotions Jerry raw. And that woman. You heard yelling from inside the bubble as they say that is a cordoned off area where the president in which the president travels. She lives very close to that synagogue. She was alone at least thirty five hundred or so by my estimate thirty five hundred or so protesters marching on the the synagogue the tree of less than a God. As the president was just was there was just preparing to leave. There was no encounter with the presidential detail. However, there wasn't encounter. According to police with between the protesters and a smaller motorcade of the local dignitaries who are leaving the president's event there at the synagogue one person was arrested. They got very loud and for few minutes, at least it was very very. You're right entrance are running. And it seems like the president went despite what many leaders encouraged them to do. They didn't want them to go first because there were so many funerals today and they wanted to focus on the victims and their families. And then city leaders wanted to focus on safety not to use resources. There were three wounded police officers, but the president visited those police officers at the hospital. Would you here is a conflict between the president's perceived role as consoler in chief and the people here who want to concentrate on their own grief. They have a lot of things resources at their at their hands locally. And they want to stay pretty much themselves. At least a you know, in in Judaism is a very is almost ritualized thing. You bury someone's quick as you can. And as is practical, and you said Sheba, and in all honesty, I think the perception here, especially along the observance was that the president was intruding on that very private process. And what people might not know is when you say sit Chiba, they're they are not allowed to be alone. The bodies are not allowed to be without someone present. And there was also another custom that the president and first lady took place in today when they placed the stones on the stars the stars of David with the names of those those killed that was an emotional moment for a lot of people to see. They're absolutely was the the issue here really is is the president's insistence on coming. Now. I mean, the the officials that you mentioned mayor Bill Peduto the county executive of allegany county, that's rich FitzGerald governor, Tom wolf people here at the highest levels really really asked the president has a very serious way to wait. Just wait a week and the president was insistent on coming now. And I think that's where you see a lot of the that you saw here today. And that's why you saw so many signs saying, watch your words words have consequences. ABC's Pete combs joining us from Pittsburgh. And sports now at five forty sponsored by
