For the first time in 22 years, fellow countrymen are ranked one and two in the ATP tennis rankings, as Spain's Carlos alcaraz and Rafa Nadal hold down the top two spots. The last time the feet occurred was back in August of 2000 when Americans Andre Agassi Pete Sampras were wanting to in the rankings, following alcaraz and Nadal is Casper Ruud, who recently lost in the finals of the U.S. open to the 19 year old alcaraz.

"Favorite sports people. Just on the note of the bash dad tournament. I noticed in the draw, we've got Aslan carrazzo and basil ashville, potentially meeting in the second round. Now, interestingly, there's been out on Twitter reporting today that a German newspaper has done some digging and these are allegations at this stage. We don't know if there's any truth behind them. Allegations of match fixing featuring both of those players and a former coach. So I mean, we won't go too much into it, but it will have to see how that story develops because it doesn't sound good. You definitely know that story is going to rear itself if they face each other in round two, which could happen. So we'll have to wait and see, but yeah, we've got Daniel Collins and Belinda bencic in Lausanne as the top seeds in critique of and trevisan in Hungary. So yeah, we'll see, we'll see how they get on getting in some clay court tennis before the American hearts hardcourt swing turns up, but yeah. I always forget about these tournaments because they are so instantly after wibb wood yeah, it's just a reminder that just tennis, it's a sport that keeps on giving, isn't it? Yeah, and I always find it weird to go from grass, have a few little weeks on clay and then go on to hardcore. It doesn't really make sense. Well, kid, we've gone from clay to grass back to clay. Yeah, and then they'll be going on to hardcore again. It's like, have a tournament, love sand. Fine, but make it a hold court one, or I don't know. You failed to mention that Caroline Garcia is in. I was just so the renaissance is going to restart, trust me. So here we go. And you will need Maya is also in the draw unseated. So I'm curious to see if she can keep it up. Tatiana Maria also there could face Garcia actually in round two, so there are some players there certainly who did well at Wimbledon. I'll be interested to see how they get on, but this is, I hope you've enjoyed listening to this finals round by round catch up with tennis week. We just want to say big thanks for all of our listeners who have stuck with us over the last couple of weeks for our Wimbledon coverage.

Yes, we've got we were fortunate enough to be invited to watch the preview screening of a John McEnroe documentary, which is going to be coming out in cinemas in the UK next Wednesday. We had the chance or actually I had the chance, Kim, unfortunately wasn't able to make it. But I had the chance to speak to the director Barney Douglas and composer Felix white from the BBC cricket podcast tail Enders. We, yeah, I was able to kind of have a chat with them about the documentary about John McEnroe, what they learned is really, really interesting. We're going to probably put it up on Wednesday or Thursday next week, so have a look out for that. But we obviously will be back into tour catch up mode. Wimbledon is over. Let's get back into the tour catch up. Get me a mysterious player Kim and the mailbag question. We will be back with our regular tour catcher probably next Monday.

"Having she literally played on grass for the first time like a few weeks ago. But she was born and had time in a Nairobi orphanage before getting to Wimbledon and yeah, first girl from Kenya to play at Wimbledon for more than 40 years. So an amazing story there and then just to get there and to go on to win the doubles tournament. I mean, that's seriously impressive. That is amazing. Yeah. Fantastic, fantastic news. And yeah, what a story. I mean, when she makes it on to the senior tour, can imagine there's going to be a lot of trouble on that. Yeah, exactly. I mean, we've had some disappointment in the wheelchair results today as well for Britain. We had alpha Hewitt in the final against shingo kunai. Alpha here it's served for the match four times. But it was not to be Grenada one in a last set tiebreak. He won like 7 points in a row from 5 three down in that tie break to win the match. So obviously if you bit bit gutted as he said afterwards, but you know, again, another fantastic match, you know, had a great semifinal really entertaining final just wasn't he wasn't to be. And it was doubles disappointment as well. Yeah, I know him and Gordon Reed lost in the doubles as well to Canada and Fernández. So I think that was ending their run of ten consecutive grandson doubles titles. So I had to end at some point into ten is a bit ridiculous. Yeah, absolutely. But yeah, fair play and well done to their opponents. Which does bring us on now to collect a set job because it's the most important result, as I said. Not a particularly high scoring collector set. This time around. Definitely. Oh no, we both got all of ours completely incorrect. And we actually haven't had to go to a tie breaker this time around, which is interesting. But we do have a winner, which is Phil. So Phil Mack 17 on Twitter, well done Phil. You got two correct answers. Wow. Yeah, it got Serena Wright and also rapha and Phil had put curios to win. So like really, really close on that one as well, could have been three. But we'll be in touch with Phil to get him a special tennis weekly prize for that. And also shout out to him. They're on your doorstep at the moment. I hope no one's, I hope no one's pinched them. Oh, now I'm sure they'll be fine. Yeah, new tennis weekly marks. But yeah, a special shout out is also to top spin lobber. He was the only one to get eager to film tech correct. And also shout out to Andrew Davies casting, also the only one to get coca correct. So yeah, I think the most correct prediction was rapha. And yeah, everyone else, it's a very difficult tournament. They said the better. Less said the better. Yeah. But well done everyone who took part and will be back as always for the U.S. open this year this year later this year for our next edition. We have more tennis though to talk about before we go today, don't we Joel? Because we've got some tournaments happening, this coming week. There is life of grass court season is not overkill. Yeah, they're still going on. People are clinging to it. There's a tournament out in Newport in the Hall of Fame and in Rhode Island, which Andy Murray is playing, which is exciting. But he's got the likes of John Isner to contend with Felix OJ Alice. Maxine Crecy. Tim van Wright hoven and Feliciano Lopez. I mean, this is actually a very, very good lineup. Yeah, no, it's going to be very exciting. And max Purcell is there as well. No, in all seriousness, no Murray. I think he's got quite a good draw. He's got Sam Querrey in round one. He is seeded Kim. He does not need a wild card. To play tournaments, it feels like anymore. That achievement is now with Stan Wawrinka, who I feel is like you Andy Murray he's got he's got a wild card into bash dad. Dominic team is also playing bash dad so can he get that elusive win on the ATP tour. He plays rusev Ori of Finland in the first round, feels quite tight. Casper Ruud is the top seed. We know he loves playing these sorts of events and going back to the clay. He'll certainly feel right at home and yeah, we've got Lausanne and the hungry Hungarian Grand Prix, which are on clay on the women's side, both two 50s and yeah, Kim, what interests me about the Hungarian Grand Prix is that there is actually a Formula One Hungarian Grand Prix, so the tennis tournament as well. For me, it's just like confusing matters completely. I mean, if Lewis Hamilton wants to turn up on a tennis court instead, I mean, imagine if he went to the wrong Hungarian Grand Prix, might look a bit out of place stepping onto court. When a women and a special exception, special exemption, I think he's probably quite nifty at tennis to be fair. I think I've seen him on a tennis court. With his dad playing tennis, I think I probably shared that with you. But there was a photo of him meeting rapha in Tokyo many years ago. And I thought, oh, how nice my two

"Ultimately the champion prevails. It's going to take some beating to defeat Novak on center court. The last person to do that was Andy Murray back in 2013, Novak's got this ridiculous record on that call. He hasn't lost in years. So it's really going to take something superhuman to do that. And that is not Nick kyrgios in this moment in time. I mean, there was a good debate I was reading about is Novak Djokovic more at home on center court or on rod raver Reno, it feels like he's got his own spell on both courts at the Australian open at Wimbledon. I mean, where do you think his game is in terms of his strongest on what court surface? Because I feel like there are arguments for both hardcore and grass court. Maybe not so much clay court, but given what he's achieved at Wimbledon, as you said, fourth straight title. 7 Wimbledon titles total in line with Pete Sampras. Do you think this makes him the case and closer to him saying, well, actually grass court, that is where I'm at home most. It's not so much. Down under in Melbourne. He's a grass court specialist. No, I'm just ripping. He could be. Days on about well, I mean, Rafa, everyone always says raf is a clay court specialist, but actually I would say a specialist on all surfaces. I mean, yeah, I think with grass, it doesn't suit a lot of players, a lot of players find it very difficult to play on. So the chances of someone upsetting Djokovic on grass is really actually less than on a hardcore. Funnily enough, Djokovic has never been quite as successful at the U.S. open as he has at the Australian, so obviously they play differently, but yeah, I think he is the first person to have won 7 or more majors at two slams. Now, I think. So he's in a unique category. You know, he's breaking records again, left right and center. As I have all the big three, it's just absolutely mind boggling what they're doing, what Djokovic is doing. But yeah, I think definitely he's equaled Pete Sampras record at Wimbledon now, only Federer has more Wimbledon singles titles for the men than he does. So and I'm sure Djokovic will overtake Federer's 8. I feel that that's inevitable. Even at his age, if he stays fit, and he'll be eating that grass for many years to competently. I mean, it's a great celebration, isn't it? I do think that's a funny celebration. Although someone made the point, someone made the point that Djokovic is so strict about what he puts into his body, yet he's brazenly eating the grass of center. Well, Kim, he did almost forget his anniversary with his wife, you laid a Yelena jock docket. Ten year anniversary and yeah, needed supermarket to bring it up and mentioned so he didn't forget about it. So I was quite fun for maybe not the court. I loved how he was just like, oh, happy anniversary. May have forgot about it, but hey, I've won Wimbledon again. This is for you. Absolutely typical, honestly. I did enjoy seeing his family, though. Over the fortnight. And it doesn't his daughter look like the spitting image of him. I just think it's like uncanny. But yeah, Djokovic household obviously celebrating tonight at the Wimbledon ball, which is, which is in the place that you had your little hospitality, I believe, Joe. Yeah, I believe. I believe so. I believe so. So yeah, we'll see, we'll see what moves he breaks out and see what he scrubs up, but yeah, he will be enjoying himself. You know, two other champions who will be there as well will be Matthew ebden and max Purcell who won the men's doubles championships. They beat mech ditch and pavic in a 5 set thriller, four hours and 11 minutes in a last set tiebreak, Kim, this was really thrilling really thrilling match and ebden and Purcell were, yes, they got to the final I believe in the Australian open earlier in the year, but their tournament was just come back after combat off to come back. I think I was reading that if this tournament had been best of three instead of best 5, which is the case at all the other grand slams. They would have been knocked out in the first round, second round, the semifinal against Salisbury rab and the final. So they'll be definitely one of those proponents of having best of 5 for doubles. Yeah, I mean, there must be knackered now, but they've made a lot of sense. Especially also playing like the mixed doubles with ebden, you know, he got to the mixed doubles final. But yeah, I mean, they all credit to them. They fought their way valiantly throughout the tournament in many of the rounds. And you know, I think this match really in the final had 5 sets of rational over it. I think I joked that it would go to a last set tiebreak, and it didn't disappoint. That is exactly what happened. And I mean, what is also remarkable though is that mache pavic was playing with a broken wrist. It wasn't his dominant racket hand, but his other hand, but he has a broken wrist and he was playing a 5 set Wimbledon. Was it pavic? I swear. I liked it. No, I think it was Matt Obama. Maybe they both had broken wrists and in which case, that's amazing. They almost won the title, but yeah, I mean, all credit to the Australian pairing. They did deserve it. And I them for beating Jesus, but at least Jesus Brie lost to the champion. That is very true. That is very true. Epton and Purcell, full credit to them. They got to the Australian open doubles final earlier in the year and lost to curiosity and coconut is so it's nice that they've managed to get a slam. Although Matthew ebden, he's saying that they've sort of referring to themselves as the M and M's, you know, max and Matt, I guess. There's some copyright infringement there. Well, I mean, yes, twice over, not just because of the chocolate, M and M, but you know, the world famous doubles pairing between Mark Lopez and Marcel granola. A few years back, they were called the M and M's. So it's already been done. It's already been done. Well, maybe the M and M legacy is continuing on. Maybe. Herself from Spain to Australia. I should start supporting them then, but yeah, the M and M's, if any Spanish fans listening, hopefully you'll remember it was definitely a thing, but anyway, fair play to them. They won, they won the doubles. So Australia do you have a Grand Slam winner, although it's not Nick curios, it's epton and Purcell. But let's take a quick break now. We'll be back in the second half, looking at the ladies singles final at Wimbledon, so do not go anywhere.

"Nothing of any use. I suppose I've won the predictions. Oh. I was going to mention it, you know, David, but you've just popped into my head. You sneak at yourself there because now I don't have to. Well, the boys singles was one by Millie Polytech of Croatia who turns 18 in three days. He also won the boys doubles title. At the French Open, he is Croatian David. First ever Croatian to win. Yeah, I think. Yeah. He beat Michael zheng, the American 7 6 7 6 in the final. So 18 or three days he'll be transitioning to the senior game sharpish I would have thought so. I might go and watch his match back but keep your eyes well let us know. Let us know if he's one for the future. I'm desperately trying to find other results to bring you because I don't want this Wimbledon to be over. No, it's getting dark. It's getting dark. The sun is setting literally and figuratively over Wimbledon 2022. We're the only people left anywhere near henman hill. The tournament is doing that thing where they start dismantling everything far too quickly. It's my least favorite thing about tennis tournaments. There should be a period of mourning. You can take everything down tomorrow. Yes. Why does Wimbledon need to do that? Yeah, leave it all up. Anything else? Leave it up. Yeah. And yeah, it's quite a sight, isn't it? I mean, it's been, it's been so special to be back, hasn't it, just to be sitting on this bench again. It's why we started the tournaments where we're ending it. It's been emotional. Feels real. Feels like it used to fail. Before the pandemic. And okay, it's not, it's not gone. We know that, and a lot of people are suffering with it still. But it's the closest thing to 2019 that we've had here at Wimbledon and it is lovely. It's absolutely lovely. It's been a special couple of weeks, so thank you to everyone that sent us lovely messages.

"Been able to do is on the Internet because I don't have Australian legal knowledge, but if the court would do accept the charges that have been referred to them for curiosity appearance on navigations of common assault on August 2nd, it's possible that the bail conditions will mean him surrendering his passport. I don't know about the particulars of his case. I don't know what the court will do. Many, many things up in the air, but there is certainly one scenario where he is required to surrender his passport. I mean, we could have a U.S. open without either Wimbledon finalist. Yeah. Wild times in tennis. It's about us. I've no interest in making any predictions about Nick curios. I don't have any confidence in anything. And not really much interest in it either. He had a good run here. And he did the best he's done so far. Fine. That'll do. I always eat the first question, to him, was pretty much, you know, what do you think made the difference today? And he waxed lyrical about the composure of Novak Djokovic used a few different words focus. Mental strength, but he kept on coming back to the composure word. And then the second answer he gave was about the hunger and how he does still have lingering hunger because he didn't win today, so I then asked him a question. I said, okay, given that hunger and given that you said the difference today was composure, do you now feel motivated to go over and work in your own composure? And he described that question as a dig. He gave a good answer until the last sentence when he was, by the way, nonsense. Great question. Classic curious type answer. I'm afraid. But look, he does need to. Djokovic may well have beaten him no matter what, but the Matt shifted because he couldn't control himself and lost energy and Djokovic didn't. Jackie, which maintained his best level, curiosity couldn't. To be fair, curious served really well and set for it. I thought he got himself back on board. That was the best tennis of the match set for. They were both playing the best tennis pretty much at the same time. The serving was incredible from both players throughout that match. In the second in the fourth set, Djokovic only lost one point on the last two points on his serve and there were both double faults until the 5th service game. He should roll in through. No rallies was he losing. Curios in the first set and a half had 81% first serves in, with his serve. You know, these are these players were serving lights out. And it doesn't come down too much, but Djokovic played like a champion he is a champion and curiosity isn't. Matters as, I mean, look, we're people that make our living out of tennis, we're all invested and obsessed with the Grand Slam race. It's an extraordinary narrative for us to have and to have had for as long as we have, but I think of you as the ultimate Grand Slam race obsessive. The big three has been your life. Matt's life. I've got other memories. And I'm trying to hang on to the Sampras glory years in the edberg and that he's looking at me and going, yeah, but they only won like 14. I don't have many other memories, but I just feel, I feel slightly differently. I am sort of one hand obsessed with it, but then there is also another part of me that thinks the worries about the future and worries that it's holding the future back. But you are all in on the grand summaries and I love that. So you're getting the question about where this leaves the Grand Slam race and the future of the Grand Slam race. Yeah, I mean, well, just to explain a little bit, I've loved the breakthroughs of Dominic team and Danielle Medvedev and then picking up slams. I've really enjoyed those tournaments, I've enjoyed seeing them win slams in the era of the big three, the big four, maybe now it's even the big two. But yeah, I do feel a sense of loyalty in a way to Djokovic and Ireland, Federer. I don't really get tired of them winning slams in a way that I think some people quite understandably do. And those people who do get tired, I'm not accusing them of not appreciating the greatness of them. I'm absolutely sure that everyone does. But yeah, I do get it. New blood is exciting, but for me, the grandstand race is extremely exciting as well. And where we are with it now, I just think we're at such an odd period in the Grand Slam race because of the uncertainty about Novak Djokovic. And of course, it's self imposed uncertainty. There's a very simple way that he could make sure he's playing the U.S. open, and that is to get vaccinated. But he's not going to do that. He said that repeatedly, he is not going to do that. So where are we with it? Well, we said after the French Open that we felt like Nadal was in prime position to finish top. We also said that that conversation could change if Novak Djokovic rocks up at Wimbledon and wins it as he has done. I still probably think Djokovic is in pole position and I suppose what I'm banking on there is him eventually being able to play the U.S. open, even if it's not this year. His dominance at Wimbledon is Nadal like at Roland Garros. Not in terms of his whole career generally, but in the last 7 or 8 years he hasn't lost on that center court here at Wimbledon. He's such a good bet to win this tournament. As you said at the start, David, he could win a couple more of these. He's in such good shape. He hasn't really had any injuries for four or 5 years. I think he's probably still in prime position, but as we said before, it really does feel like a race of two right now. And Federer's incredibly not in it. I still can't really get over that, but yeah, Nadal and Djokovic still think they'll probably each win more slams. Yeah, it's going to carry on. He's 35 years old.

"Yeah, and hashtag journalism chat from the daily mail revealed in this press conference that that woman had actually only had two drinks and she was rooting for Nick curios from the start. What do you think about that, Nick? And this is what this is what one of the things curious was ranting about, wasn't it to the umpire about the woman and he said, he said, what's the problem? And he goes, she's at 700 drinks, kick her out. Basically. I mean, I didn't have a problem with Nick curios today. Neither did I. I saw some criticism. I thought his ranting at the box was excessive, but was it all that different from Andy Murray? He's his own worst enemy. Yeah, absolutely. I think it's a problem. No, I don't think he, I think he was pretty much on the right side of the line today. And occasionally funny. Like that line about the 700 drink. Yeah, and let's take a moment to acknowledge the fake underarm serve. Oh, did he do one of that? Yeah, I'm sure he has done that in matches that I've not been watching, but I've never seen that before and I loved it. Do you know, I think a fake under I'm served might be better than underarm. Because the camera doesn't catch an underarm. It is a fundamental problem. You get one in the first set, didn't he? As you mentioned, can we just completely missed it? Suddenly you just get so easily a scrambling Djokovic. But actually, yeah, the fake underserve is and actually against Djokovic where I think is E nodded to David. It's not necessarily about winning the point with an under arm server about Djokovic is just about sort of scrambling his mind and making him think about it. So it's kind of the fake does the work of actually doing an underarm serve without sort of having to actually lose the point. Yeah, I think maybe prince George in the front row learned some new words today. His face certainly suggested so. Again, could we just have a little moment for 8 year old prince George wearing a seat in 34°? Let the boy just wear whatever he goddamn wants. I don't care if he's my future king. I want my future king to have enjoyed enjoyed his childhood, not sweating in a suit. And then Novak put the trophy in his hands and it was a moment where we thought oh my goodness. I thought he was going to drop it. He looked really unmoved by carrying the I thought he might just go, oh, this is a bit heavy. Screw this. But the other thing with Djokovic is I think he went out to make sure he didn't get emotional to make sure he didn't get angry about it at anything or anybody. I think Goran, that's the tactic there would have had is. Don't get involved. Ride it out and you'll have more energy when it matters. It's why I found the sort of Instagram loving, which I know. I know it wasn't to everyone's taste. I think of the Instagram loving. But I'm probably overanalyzing it, but I did think maybe that was a sort of game plan from Djokovic in terms of don't, you know, like we've seen how curios plays against Andy Murray. We've seen how he plays against Roger Federer. He doesn't bring any of quite so many antics and theatrics. And I think maybe Djokovic thought my best bet to beat this guy is if it's just a straight tennis match. And it was pretty much. I mean, there was some curious stuff, but it was, as we said, it was sort of, it wasn't crossing the line. And I think maybe if there was an edge to it, if there was real tension to it, that might have ended up favoring Djokovic. Look, I think, I think I suppose Djokovic generally is appreciative of what curios did in terms of defending him in Australia this year. So maybe it was real, but there was that extra element to it that curios described it as him taking arrows in the back for Djokovic in Australia. Okay. Yeah. I'm going to make prediction that I feel confident in for the first time in tennis podcast history. Those two are never going for dinner. They're also going to have another row at some point. I mean, it's possible they have like a performative dinner where they sit at the same table together for four minutes and post a picture of it on Instagram. Laughing. That is right. That's not what it is. Not what I'm talking about. They're never going for an enjoyable dinner. Are they going to a club to go nuts? Even less likely. No. No, they are not. I was going to say, Joshua doesn't go to clubs, but we did see him in one during the Adriatic limbo. It's interesting, David, you via these extraordinary notes which are frazzled my brain a bit. It's all a bit much for day 14 of a Grand Slam, David, but it's set to curios gets broken to love, set three the crucial break is a very different story because he gets broken from 40 love up. Yeah. And I felt like that messed with curiosity's mind for a little while because 40 love up for curiosity is just, you know, it's playing with house money, isn't it? It's all. I've got what Goran even is which today described as the best serve in tennis, I can have fun for a couple of points here. I think that really rocked him and must have just felt so great for Novak Djokovic to win 5 points in a row. And the curios serve. And curios couldn't let that go. That's one of the things he kept ranting to the box about. And I don't know whether because that occupied his service games for about the next four service games. Because he and I don't know whether he was blaming them for something or just pointing out his own inadequate is about it and almost being sarcastic about them getting behind him given that last time I was 40 love up. And he went 40 love up a couple of times in subsequent games. You need to say, oh yeah, yeah, he's going to come back and break me now. You know, something like that. And it's tiring watching and it's tiring for him. And he may well never control that. And that will hold him back. It has to. Just on that and what the future might hold for Nick curiosity. I'm loath to take us down this road because obviously it's entirely unpredictable just like the rest of his career has been, but he was asked, you know, where does this leave? He was asked impressed today about the joking answer he gave to Sue Barker on court today about, you know, does this give you hunger? To come back and put yourself in this position more. And he said, he joked, you know, no way, I'm absolutely exhausted, don't want to go through that again any time soon. He was asked about that in the press conference and he said, he said, look, if I had won today, I think that might have killed my hunger because this is the ultimate achievement in sport and finding somewhere to go with my funny any goal after that might have been difficult, which I understand. He said actually losing, you know, he was people doesn't make you any promises about how much he was going to commit to tennis or winning future grand some titles, but he said this leaves me hungry. I think, and he said, look, I have committed to tennis as much as I am capable of pretty much in the last two weeks, he said, I hit every day, he said, I practice for an hour every day. I mean, what are the portions of the press conference where he was trying to make it clear that he's not fully committed to tennis and he's too cool to do that and you know, don't hit nearly as much as everybody else and but in this particular answer, he said, look, I hit every day. I didn't have any beers. During the fortnight, just more than the tennis podcast and say. He said I didn't go out very much, you know, he basically said this is the maximum I'm capable of in terms of focus. And he came up short, but then he came up short to one of the greatest of all time. So anybody want to take on the challenge of talking about the future for Nick curios?

"Good he's become at winning after dropping the first set in slam. So I had to look at his record 2005 to 2020, so that big span, his Grand Slam record after losing the first set. He had a losing record. You know, if he dropped the first set, he lost more than he won. Only by one match, but it was a losing record. In the last two years, he's won 12 of the 14. Where he's lost the first set. Really? It's an absolutely astonishing turnaround. And I don't know what it is. I think it's experience. I think it's confidence. I think it's a trust in his game and honestly, from the first set onwards, I just felt that Djokovic played a magnificent match. We've just had Nick curios in his press conference, and as I think as much as they do get on now, kiryu and Djokovic, I don't think kyros can quite bring himself to say that Djokovic is the best. I think he gave a good line about Federer that Federer still can make you feel bad just by how quickly he plays how talented he is. To me, this was the first time kyrios had got to feel Djokovic over 5 sets in a grand stand final and I think Djokovic played at a level that I think curios really should kind of be admitting is so good. And the things he does so well, obviously the return. I mean, it took him a set to figure out the curios serve, but when he did figure it out, he started applying a lot of pressure on the curiosity service games. He got the return back at the feet. I thought he stayed so composed Djokovic and wasn't allowing any of curios chattering or renting to get to him at all. He targeted the curios forehand. It was just all the things that you think you should do against Nick kyrgios Djokovic did them. I thought sets two three and four, he was so good today. I think it's fundamental to the curio psyche. That he believes he is the best tennis player, and it's just a question of whether he produces his best level on the day. I don't think we'll ever see an admission that they're just fundamentally better. Probably only me. The line about Federer is as close as he gets to a nod to somebody he regards as a bit of a God and that one at the U.S. open they played that time when you could tell he was just like, oh my God. He talked about that today, didn't he? He was asked. It is Novak Djokovic sort of the hardest person you've ever faced and he said, no, he said Federer is the only one that sort of can just make you feel kind of silly out there. He was clear to draw a distinction. David has just delved into his backpack and produced a ragged note pad with the most I mean, I hope you haven't lost your mind, David. It looks like a sort of, you know, Russell Crowe, a beautiful mind type vibe over here. What am I looking at? Well, I'm not usually a note taker during tennis matches. I usually your mister and make it sound like you've done hours of prep. But these are just my notes of the points as they were going along. Because when you get to the quarterfinals onwards, I start to realize that the points and the stage that things change, matter more. So I just wanted to remind myself because there were a couple of tiny little notes that I made whilst commentating, and it was the third game of the second set. It was one game all, and it was 30 all. Yes. I'm Djokovic's serve and curios was right in there. And you're looking for the moment that it might change. Because watching the Indian Wells final back this morning, I realized that how enjoyable curios finds rallying with Novak Djokovic when he's feeling fresh and good curios. He likes getting embroiled in a long rally with him. And it's not like forward back a forehand back and forth. It's just, it's right now. I'm going to give you my inside out slice bending right to left. And now I'm going to give you my loopy forehand cross court. Then I'm going to bend one down the line with my forehand. Now I'm going to play a drop shot. And you can tell he's enjoying examining this because he doesn't think that Joker which is just going to end him in a rally. He thinks Djokovic is going to keep going side to side and he can have fun in the realm. That's kind of what happened in the first set. He's got his big serve to win easy points, and then he can get stuck into the service game of Djokovic. And I used to always enjoy watching Pete Sampras play Andre Agassi for the same sort of reasons you could see Sampras rolls through his service games and then explore his own ability from the back of the court against one of the best baselines in the world. So I find it a great watch those two going head to head in that way. However, in the third game, at 15 sorry, 30 all on the Djokovic series under pressure, Djokovic locks in for a long rally. A really long rally and he refuses to miss and he starts pepper in that baseline that you referenced. And you know, when you talk about a returner making a server, half volley shots, traditionally that used to be hitting hitting a shot at the feet of the incoming servant valley. Djokovic's return puts it on the baseline as toes. In that rough bit, which is all broken up, which must be horrible to try and tee off with your own shots when the ball's landing on that rough bit. So he wins that 30 all point. Next rally, 40 30, another one. He's taking curios legs from under him, and he's taking he starting to take his mind as well, but when in a long rally, next game breaks him to love. And the match has changed. The match is just a totally different beast at this point. And that's when the curios ranting started to come all the sort of the problems he's inventing in his own mind, stress, stress is game frustrated, and then what happens, he's getting so upset about nothing at all that he's exhausting himself. And suddenly that relaxed curiosity the first set or fancy Dan let's have nice rallies and watch how good I am, everybody. That's all gone because he's getting desperate and that I'm sure is when we add Gordon even as rich in the interview and he said, it's not about tactics. And I didn't get a chance to ask my question, but I'm sure it's about that. Just exhaust the guy. Make him make him come down from where he is in that first set and a half, and that's what he did. It was all the fault of a woman who had had 700 drinks. It was a great line. Yeah.

"We'll Novak Djokovic is a 7 time Wimbledon champion, a 21 time Grand Slam champion. He is one the title here at SW 19, where you find myself David Laurel Matt Roberts, a top the Wimbledon broadcast reef one more time. He is one the title here for consecutive years or four consecutive tournament years because of course, in case you'd forgotten there was a pandemic in the middle of those four years, but he is a truly extraordinary man, a truly extraordinary competitor's beaten Nick curios today in four sets. David, if I told you in the year 2000 when your man Pete Sampras was winning his 7th title here, that 22 years later, two men. Would also have won 7 titles or more. What would you have said to me? Yeah, I would have thought it was absurd, and you align. Tonight. He had come to the future with from the future with lies, is what I would have thought. I mean, look, in the year 2000, Roger Federer had just come out of juniors and was trying to figure it out and wasn't doing a very good job of it to be quite honest. And Pete Sampras was looking good as the most successful Grand Slam winning male of all time and I didn't say that changing anytime soon and to think that he was over. I remember in 2009 when Federer overtook him that and I got chance to interview Sampras earlier that year before it happened and that was an amazing opportunity to kind of get in his mind and try to understand what it must feel like. And now here we are and Federer's third. You know? That is startling when you hear that. And it's the first time that's happened. First time he's ever been third in the Grand Slam race, Matt hid us with the stat that you bamboozled with bamboozled us all with on the group chat earlier. Yeah, well, Federer once led Novak Djokovic in the grand Sam race 16 one. Following the 2010 Australian open, when Federer beat Andy Murray in that final, that was federal 16th slam and Djokovic at that point was on one having won the Australian open in 2008. And, you know, a decade, 12 years later, Djokovic is now ahead of him. It's been the decade of Novak Djokovic, really. I mean, Rafael Nadal absolutely as well, but the way Djokovic has reeled Federer in and now overtaken him pretty extraordinary. And I think the idea of Federer having the most wimbledons among the men certainly kind of makes sense, I suppose, just because of the way he won his first Grand Slam here, the way that sort of his game matches up with matches up with grass and the sort of class of the man. It just all fits Wimbledon, doesn't it, Roger Federer, but the fact that Novak Djokovic is now on 7 tying Pete Sampras, I think maybe it's just a bit more surprising to people. I think people don't associate Djokovic with this tournament. He's so much. Federer is a quintessential player. Exactly. We've always known that to be. Djokovic has basically developed a new way of dominating and I said the other day he's beaten Federer in three Wimbledon finals. He arguably still won Wimbledon short of Federer. He sort of arguably a better GRAS court player than Federer certainly over this last ten years. And he could win another two, yeah. Yeah, that's it. And I think one of the interesting lines from Djokovic's press conference, which was actually a bit subdued, actually. I fell in his press conference. He wasn't buzzing in the way that I thought he might be, but he did talk about Wimbledon and this tournament has always come in at the right time for him and his career. And I thought that was interesting because you look back over some of his titles, 2011, it was here where he got to world number one for the first time. That was a big deal for him. 2014, he won here. That was his first Grand Slam title with Boris Becker as his coach and he'd lost a few grand finals, and he hadn't won a slam for about 18 months at that point. There were some there were some little doubts. 2018, he won here when he hadn't won a slam for a while. That was really the sort of rejuvenation of his career at that time. I thought that was one of his biggest because that was when he arrived at queens, that was when he had the year before he'd withdrawn with an elbow problem against Thomas Berdych and where a couple of weeks before in Paris he'd said maybe I went even play the cross. There were so many question marks over him in 2018. Yeah, that was such a big win for him. And then I think this is a really big win for him, considering his lack of vaccination and we don't know whether he's going to be able to play the U.S. open or the Australian open, the fact that Nadal had moved too clear, it's just big for Djokovic. He gets this one again and closes that gap to one and yeah. I thought that was a good point.

So tell us about Jim, because that was an era of pre me, you know, Sampras, Jim, Agassi that a lot of people see, even today, the TFO's, they don't know that era, right? They weren't on the court. When they were facing, so tell us about Jim. Let me tell you real quickly. I came off the tour in February of 84 and the reason my daughter was born. And so I asked the USTA, can I come do, you know, if they had anything going on, this was pre player developments. They said, yes, so I'm 28 years old. And I was still top under in the world, singles and doubles. So I go to this camp. And you know, I told my wife, I said, it's good for me to retire because I was playing with this 15 year old in Germany, and I'm saying, oh my goodness, this guy's amazing. And we beat him in double 7 6 in the third, so I come. So I tell my wife, CES, time for me to retire. You know, I've got to get out. So I go do this camp. I work with this one kid, this little kid. He's fast as heck. And I'm having to bust my butt to play with this kitty's 14 years old and say, what is going on here? So then I go to the next kid and I'm seeing, oh my goodness, kind of pudgy little guy ripping forehands. And then there was another kid and saying, this is ridiculous. So I called my wife says, good thing I retired. So, you know, the kids were? I was playing against Becker, Boris Becker in Germany when he's 15. I come home. The first kid I play as a, as a coach, the first is Michael Chang at 14. The next kid is Jim Courier. This is in one morning. The next kid is Pete Sampras, and then then I'm exhausted at the end, and they say, have you hit with Andre yet? And in the afternoon it was hundred. So I met Jim and he's 15 years old. And then I started to get to know him. I traveled with him to some of the junior vents. He was obviously a voluntary student who developed and gave him that opportunity. But I had spent quite a bit of time with about ten, 12 weeks. When he was 17, I was with him when he won the Italian juniors when they won the Italian, the French junior doubles, you know, when he was at Wimbledon, the U.S. open. And what a lot of people don't know is when Jim was 19 years old, he asked me to watch him at Wimbledon. He was really, really struggling..

I think seeded number four coming in but didn't have the highest of expectations. I guess it was really just starting to focus on my fish around match and not focus on actually going deep into the tournament. I've made the semi finals the year before and of the pete sampras in a pretty close three set match actually so that guy me a lot of confidence i felt really comfortable on the us open.

Sampras Elia, senior pharmaceutical analyst at Bloomberg Intelligence. We do have a vaccine here there is one shot, easy to store and ship on gave you very high level of protection against severe disease. So it's a very significant addition to our fight in the pandemic plans to make a recommendation on J and J's Emergencies request on February 26th. Meantime, in Washington, lawmakers are making changes to President Biden stimulus plan. They're looking to lower the income limit for those receiving direct payments. The move has bipartisan support. But when it comes to the overall approach to covert relief, Democrats are taking a unilateral approach and that's drawing criticism from Republicans. We spoke with GOP senator from Tennessee Marsha Blackburn. What are the Democrats to doing? They are trying to go it alone. They didn't want a pared down $600 billion package. They don't want to break it apart. So that we can target money that is needed to families..
"Folks and welcome to the tennis podcast and very special edition of the tennis podcast and back by popular demand brackets by David Law ov- tennis relived. We told you. It would be coming back. Of course, it was coming back. Don't worry. We know that actual live tennis is happening this tennis lived and. Second. One prior to the US Open is not in place of talking about live tennis. And related things it is an addition and a very special and necessary edition as well. This one will be focusing on the life, the career, the legacy of Alpha Gibson, and our next one will be focusing on the very same of thrash respectively the first african-american women and men to win Grand Slam titles in NFL Gibson's case the first African. American. Person To, be, admitted, to play. Professional tennis an extraordinary women in extraordinarily. Important figure in tennis history and one that. Hasn't been sufficiently remembered or given her Jews always over the is so. We're hoping to write that in a very tiny tiny way today certainly been. An extraordinary learning experience for us to to get to know these t plays an the significance in tennis history say thank you David for your enthusiasm. For tennis relived. Point Yeah it's very different what we're doing today and what we're doing with the Arthur Ashe podcast as well. When we were doing the Roland Garros relived Wimbledon the Olympics, they were all about events or matches or moments in time specific moments in time when we came up to realizing that the US Open for stop was going to happen and we really don't have two weeks worth of shows to fill much as I'd love to come up with twenty wonderful matches and memories which no doubt we will get to in the. List of Twelve Pete Sampras much is that he submitted for the short lift. US Open relived and fifteen Jimmy Connors matches. Including all seven from all from. Sorry. All five from nine hundred, ninety one. But When we came to to look at this and we started to try to think well, what what should we do I personally suddenly realize the the gaping chasm mind knowledge in my reading of the Games history and I think particularly Alpha Gibson I feel ashamed not to know what I now know and what we want to do with this show. Is Tell, the stories that we've discovered and to properly tell the history as best as we can. I. Think we all knew that line first black woman to play the US Open and win Grand Slam titles but I'd never properly engaged with that line or really understood what that actually. Meant or considered what she actually had to overcome to become that because tennis was this elitist sport at a racially segregated time in America. So it's an extraordinary thing that tennis was used as AVIK BY A. Gibson and now thrash. To advance the black race and I'd never really. Never really thought about that before how how, what, a, what a strength of character and what a special talent it took to be able to achieve as a black person in in that white world and it's just been. Just been happening really to have read and sort of spent time. In their lives over the last few over the last few days and weeks doing this research and and it felt very necessary and timely as well.
AELTC Announces Prize Money in Lieu of Championships 2020 Alongside Initial Decisions for The Championships 2021
"Had news this week from Wimbledon. Pretty incredible news has to be said you know all of the ways that tennis has sort of disgraced itself. During this weird periods, it kind of feels like in one wave of the Magic Wand Wimbledon has been able to neutralize. Nullify all if that because. They have done the most classy thing they have put a a ten million pound prize pot aside. To. To distribute to the six hundred plus players would have been competing. Wimbledon in the main role, and in the qualifying draw as well I think twenty five thousand pounds to plays the would have. On on on current rankings been playing in the in the main draw and twelve and a half thousand to those that would have been in the qualifying draw and the reception to that. COMPLETELY UNPROMPTED MOVE! On social media has been incredible. People Have Been Pretty Pretty Bold David by the gesture actually and. Many have been making the point that kid that could save careers for a lot of people. In, the Lower Tiers of the sport that is the difference between. Being able to continue as a professional tennis player, not yeah, and they've also covered doubles players with a lower figure, but still you know a sizable amount of money for people who literally are not earning a penny right now unless they sought out. Giving tennis lessons or something like that. They are freelance contractors who are not playing tournaments are not earning money unless they can get into one of the the locally organized exhibitions matching and the same with the wheel champ as well. I mean this is A. Great Fund of money that has been put aside by Wimbledon. Who are? Covered by their pandemic insurance, which was just the most incredible foresight at the time, but I do love the way they have taken advantage of that great foresight, and the money that that is going to save them and decided okay. Let's spread the love around. Let's let's look the people that we rely on in order to be tournaments and. Just just really really impressive. And they've also. Giving money to officials who would have been working at the event? Sanctioned officials and international officials, he would have been working at the tournament so just around really really incredible gestures from Wimbledon. Both the generous gesture for sure, and but also really sensible. Macro. Way of viewing tennis a recognition of the fact that for Wimbledon to happen in be successful. You need tennis players, not just the top ones the multimillionaires you need. Hundred Twenty eight players in the drawer in need. A qualifying tournaments and you need wheelchair players and. Doubles players and this is these are the things that. That make grand. Slam tournaments the the peaceful thing that they are so. Yeah having having. Having that view of the sport and not just sort of myopic narrow one is. It's great to see actually. Also announced by Wimbledon this week is that they are doing away with the seeding formula on the men's side? So no more elevating Pete Sampras, from what was it seven in the world to top seed? Something like that. I mean. These days. The impact of that is pretty minimal in practical terms, but it's more sort of the the principle of it. I suppose in. The fact that the Wimbledon, a note, no longer be an outlier in those terms, and I think the way the formula works. If they'd had it next year, the most recent grass-court results that would have been impacting. The formula would have been from two years ago which. kind of doesn't feel that relevant so I think it kind of makes sense that it's that he's going now. kind of just seemed seem slightly unnecessary, especially with the Gross, not playing as differently as it used to back back when they first came up with the formula, so yeah, I think most people seem to think that it makes sense.

Is Strange to think that in an alternate universe rule experiencing the busiest most hectic day, if the tennis calendar down the road, well down the road from me, and that's w nineteen and instead well I didn't know about you, but I'm something my safer why I'm dressed. I was GONNA. Say My pants spur. I'm dressed, but I'm certainly not in A. Poised and ready to. Go on the tally or anything. I mean it is a very different university living in.

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