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

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

So update on the boat is that it will now be a A guaranteed free zone or it certainly will be in twelve weeks time anyway. Say something to bear in mind when we're considering Is probably new criteria for boot. Worthiness i would say yes. Cave tennyson grin not aboard. Ironically he does have. Antibodies doesn't but unfortunately not good personality so it doesn't meet the other criteria so that is that is it for anything current. Sit back folks. Close your eyes and allow david law to take you back to hundred thousand nine hundred ninety five and that years australian. We're going to set the scene for you for you. i Particularly the the pete sampras landscape coming into the australian open nine thousand nine hundred five at this stage. He's a five time grand slam champion. He's the defending champion at the australian. Open a jim courier won the the two previous in ninety two ninety three. And then pete sampras had one in one thousand four. He's the number one seat. And he'd finished ninety three and nineteen ninety-four as the world number-one so he's an ex. He's a kfc five five only five grand slams but he is. He's on course at the moment to to become one of what of the great vizier woody. Being talked about david as potentially one of the greats is. What was the phrase greatest of all time coming up in tennis. Punditry at this stage in pete san career. Yeah i would say it was an actually. The thing is because we look through it with a lens of seventeen nineteen twenty grand slam singles. Titles these days. Because of what. Federal dow djokovic serena williams of all done five at the time was a heck of a lot bear in mind that a royal held the record on twelve. John mcenroe's retired with seven Beyond ball could retired with eleven. The these were this was the landscape papers base in the peak of his career or approaching the peak of his career. He'd got five and it didn't really look like too many people that we're going to stop him. Getting more. agassi was going through a fantastic resurgence. He just won the us open Towards the end of ninety four. But still sampras. And i guess he head and shoulders above everybody else and generally speaking. Yeah in san. Just looked unstoppable on his day before us set the scene. Feola little bit more. Repeat sampras could be set. The david law seen january nineteen ninety-five whereas david law. What's doing well university. A left bra in my first year. I'm staying in holes of residents. I've got my walls papered with pictures off. Tennis plas- work in tennessee. But i love tennis. And i wanted to everybody. I spoke to to know about it because nobody seemed interested. The university so i just decided to put pictures of tennis. All my walls. Pete sampras was currents in center and right in everybody's face a nobody else nobody else on. You liked him. Nobody and he was. He was the two time defending wimbledon champion and. Everybody slacked him off that. I knew university because they said he was boring. There was too much of When he won that wimbledon tightly ninety four beating ghana vich the sun. Newspaper ran the headline pete. Sampras bisquick finance horrible. it's horrible. There was a columnist. Steve howard who's actually turns out and i've since found out is a brilliant writer and a brilliant columnist but he wrote the most all flee mean autumn about pete sampras now is and and i just vowed one day i would meet steve howard and have my say. I didn't really know how the media works quite as much time and please. I didn't didn't. I never met him. Yeah i think so. And like i say. He's a cracking writer. But the world didn't like pete percent and britain. They just found him boring. And of i guess he had one within the ninety two then sampras took either and the contrast between the two could not have been more stark was popular. One wasn't in many ways in most is but for me sampras was the man and i was. I'd gone to university. I was doing a right. I got through my wilderness years to actually have some sort of degree of success in life of at least achieving getting to university and and when this australian open was going on i only had the sort of communal. Tv room the whole residents to to watch any of it on this match started. I don't know so six in the morning. I was there on my own in this massive. Tv rain would one little tv and allowed to notes. The seats and i sat there for the next four. Nuff us mass putting on the spot here but d- do you know what What your parents view. On on pete sampras was the time i my parents. David fitted very much confirmed the majority that you would railing against. They were not pete. Sampras fans soul they they definitely would have enjoyed the pete sampras. Move certainly agreed with that sentiment i. I'm not sure about my parents at the time. But what i'm interested to come back to peps at the end of this podcast is to talk about whether this moment that we're going to cover today has had a lasting impact on people's perception of pete sampras. Because i have a theory that outside of tennis it might not have done. I think a lot of people still look back on some press as a bit boring and as a dominant figure who didn't display exciting motion on the call and oversee. We know that's not true because particularly this moment in his career but has it had a lasting impact beyond tennis circles. I'm i'm not sure how. For example my parents might still think of sampras as a bit boring i think perhaps that is a uk thing because of what he did wimbledon. So much but yeah. It's a very interesting debate. I think david's faces utterly crestfallen at the moment. This is twenty five years of campaigning. All for nothing. You'll have your say today. David you can win them. Round will eighteen years winnable round. Can i ask david. When i was when i look at pete sampras career something i find interesting and said he had this real breakthrough as a nineteen year old and won the us open. I think i think at the time he was the youngest ever winner of the. Us open he then had a couple of the as where he didn't win another slam but he remained in the top. Ten was there was any sense of. Oh he was. He was a one off winning that slam. What's happened to and why connie win another one. Was it all. Just a sense of his time is gonna come eventually is going to be a dominant champion I think it was more a sense that his time of winning a major tournament at the sipe and in one thousand nine hundred km ahead of time came to allie and he even he described as a couple of hot week scene and to win that. Us open and that was the first time i'd ever heard of sampras that he actually beat villanova thousand nine. Us open but to get to the ca- getting to the quarterfinals. But it was that ninety. Us open he beat in back to back matches. Lendl john mcenroe. And then andre agassi thrashed agassi in the final when agassi was the one who is getting all the headlines and that was a huge exciting win in terms of showcasing his skill. But he was. He was really young at the time and he wasn't refined. His whole game wasn't ready yet. I think in his mind certainly wasn't ready so it was a bit more light federal winning against some person two thousand and one but not winning a grand slam title until two thousand and three right more like that and then the following year. The story was that he then lost currier in a pretty underwhelming To i think it was ninety one And he said it feels like a huge ton of bricks even use like a monkey off my back. He said a ton of bricks. Just been taken off my shoulders. Because i'm no longer the defending champion and enough he. Actually i read some press conference transcripts about that this morning and he said you know i regret sign that because i didn't really mean it like that. I i sort of felt like a time. Maybe i will feel relieved to have note to no longer. Be the defending champion. But actually i felt really down. Because i felt like i was playing well enough to defend that title so i think people got impression of me because of what i said which wasn't really true..

"We certainly we certainly not sweeping the story under the carpet or moving from in any way. It's very much present in our minds which is conscious that that sir there's been no further news.

Developments in is dario gavrilo over the australian player of course famous for her two week lockdown in a to be quarantined in perth turning her her time in europe. She tweeted a few days ago.

I just say that she can handle the negative ity. What's to come next hashtag. I believe earlier. Hashtag why i stayed. Hashtag stop violence against women to. That's where we are without in terms of the tennis in paris. We've got evans against. That's probably the pick of the matches. Would you say this count as they played a few weeks ago and Evans winson didn't end up winning the ring to and that's happened before between those two course the us open so yeah. It's was interesting. When evans played dimitrov. The other day. I mean the total opposite of a match light millman against mannarino incidentally mannarino great great stats put up by nick lester the four of rallies longest run into the tournaments a forty five forty six forty eight shots involved mannarino last week but dimitrov evans was just one of those matches that every single point you can concentrate on and see something a little bit different. You don't know what's coming next. Lovely city stylish match will ever shut the book. And we're expecting. The same from vancouver evans is not the. Yeah i would think so. Yeah i mean it just works the way they go about their lines of attack than all the same so that's paris starting today coverage in case on amazon prime Few other bits and bobs of news from the weak very unfortunately has announced that she's tested positive covid. Nineteen she said. I'm self isolating at home. And i'm recovering well from mild symptoms. I feel good. We will get through this together so we really wish simona halep well. It's another just sort of reality. Check of of where we are with this pandemic and we all in the uk or in england heading into another lockdown down from from thursday slightly less strict than the first one but still still still pretty straight. It's going to hit all of our lives. I think the only significant differences that elite sport will continue. And certainly for us. Personally that's That's a huge relief. That will still get to watch. Philemon and west brom lease reading when the atp finals the a to renew. We'll go ahead with a massive testing process in place and Significant of restrictions and bubbles and so on in place as well my dylan recover. The former wind in semifinalist is retiring. She announced this week. I mean we talked about yoga's didn't we lost week and this is kind of what we expected. Didn't we put it really well last week. David didn't you about how this kind of a year would make people reevaluate reassess and really face up to how committed they are to just wanting to play tennis in any way shape or form in the current circumstances and not for everyone and that say kay and different plaza will have different levels of severity of injury that they might have been nurse single. Have a kind of idea of what was required to get back and play again. But i do think that it is giving pause for thought for players in a way that it wouldn't have done without the pandemic for sure. Some briggs has done a big interview with eager fintech the french open champion for the telegraph. What did we learn about each film tank from this entity whereas just a lovely chat really that simon is had both with her and and several members of her team and also nick brown. Who's the the british british player and coach. Who was an early guy at full goofy on tekken and acts as a mentor for her now and also players from from poland as well just to get Rounded view of of what. She is like what her life is becoming now as grand slam champion him. What it's going to be like in the future. I mean she just comes across unsurprisingly. I think for for those of us now who who watched her at the french open hurt her interview. She just comes across the such an engaging person and as an interesting rounded multifaceted person in general and our interest levels. I mean she. She said she went back to poland after the victory and started reading up on all the politics there and and really just wanted to understand the world's that much more that's the sort of person she is. I mean she really doesn't sound as if she was absolutely one hundred percents on being a tennis player until these most recent of months where she's had this enormous success and and she somebody with a of options in life. And you still wouldn't be surprised. Toll for her to indulge yourself in been out of follow different paths in life but yeah really good rate anyway assignments pace. Just wrap up a debate that we had last week. We're going to give mary carillo the final say on it. Because why wouldn't we were chatting to this week about last week's debate about hawkeye. And her views of us she says never liked the challenge. System never bought the tactical use of stuff. What if about call goes unchallenged in the very first game and someone gets broken right away. Turning point happened labor over matches emboldening or unnecessarily pressurizing players. The idea of being penalized for trying to make a call on the dead run from eighty feet away or incorrectly deciding not to. That's always been silly to me unfairly. Burdens the playing the players. But then again. I don't like on court or illegal coaching either. She goes on to make a further point after of some prodding from david on the specifics of us mary to confirm. Ideally would you have kind live and ditch line judges or have judges with hawkeye. Something that can just be invoked whenever needed. And there's like nursultan david. There's a lot of broke hyphens in that sentence. You've put a hyphen between line judges and a high hyphen in hawkeye. Anyway we understood. I knew i was amongst the grandma police a week ago wrong. I'm saying just.

I'm not saying that's the only reason necessarily. There're founded dominic. Thiem may be. They would be a fan of his if they were from timbuktu. But as it is they've got no choice to be dominic thiem funds because they are from austria. Thank you for that wonderfully uplifting in trade there and thank you christian fuel support of the tennis. Podcast Which leads us nicely. I think matches that intro because He said that's a lovely segue into vienna. Which is the tournament. that's just reached. Its conclusion yesterday on the. We've had a couple of them. This week. Starting with the paris masters today as i speak to you. I'm watching martin Which and born rich locked-in first setback the paris masters. But we'll start off with reviewing the goings on from vienna law street. Seeing is anna provide dispossess. Such a lovely segue david. Your but that yeah. That's fine by. It's just a bit of a blow that dominant teams pulled out of paris. really with is With is whatever it is foot injury is it. Matt is that what's happened to. Yes injury which he seemed to sustain during his match against a rube live in vienna and hampered him and that max yes not a good week to be sort of talking in gloving terms about dominic thiem unfortunately but he's obviously hopefully hp finals. I think he's saving himself london. Anna don't worry So you mentioned under the andre rebe love who thank you very much. Might you reminded me that. I predicted a year. Ago would have a big twenty twenty. I genuinely had forgotten that. So thanks very much. His fifth title of of the year. He's only played in twelve events. He's qualified now for the atp finals. He beat lorenzo sinaga. More of him certainly later. Six four six four in the vienna final. He's won five of the twelve tournaments. He's entered this year. He's worn them on hard courts clay courts and indoors He hasn't lost to anyone outside. The world's top forty and he's lost only six sets in those five tournaments that he's one information from enrico river on twitter. Who's pumping out some wonderfully useful starts at the moment. Yeah i mean andre rube live. Is he the player of the year so far in the men's tennis no more titles than anybody else. He's when five djokovic has one four nebula anyone yes civil true yes but i don't think he's the player of the i wouldn't put him above jovic team for example who've both won a slam and reached the another slam final I think all those stats that you've just laid out for us perfectly sum up. What on variable has been doing this year found a level of weekend week out consistency at the two fifty and five hundred events that no one else has found and therefore that resulted in loads of titles and i'm incredibly impressed by that endurance and that your ability that he's got because as i said i think during run on garrels this is a guy who was prone at the start of his career and i'm just impressed at. He's able to keep going and keep finding the motivation and also the physical strength to keep doing what he's doing. But you know. I think there's there's a level he needs to go up if he's going to be the absolute best player of the year and that's doing it a masters one thousand events grand slams. Yeah i very much agree. I think had he had a real breakthrough at grand slam. Level would preps be more of a conversation around david bit he has. He has hit that ceiling at the slams. This year hasn't his ceiling. What if he wins. Paris and then london qualified for the finals. What if you went both of those. Would he be player. There should festival isn't it. Yeah it certainly worth revisiting the conversation. I'd be surprised if i ended up saying yes. He's the player of the year. But you're welcome to re raise the conversation in that scenario david. He's one of the most impressive though. Isn't the this year given a thing. And i know that you were predicting big things fame catherine this year and two others were as well certainly more than i would have pain you know. I thought i thought he could have had a good year. I didn't think he would be doing what he's saying. Didn't particularly when you consider he's done it before and after this six month hiatus from tennis. I think that's really impressive to just keep on backing it up. It shows his appetite. He is so hungry to win and compete. Eighteen loves it. doesn't he loves the tour. He almost loves it too much for his own. Good sometimes i think physically. But i think that that's probably the sort of issue you were alluding to earlier in his career at that he was getting. He got injured or lost near serious injuries. Time since his body couldn't really. But i love the way he just keeps coming back for more. Yeah he's he's currently entered into sophia qualifying. We actually was in an insurance in case you hadn't qualified for london expect now. He has secured qualification for london that he will be hopefully hastily with fear with respect to the event survey last week we raised their hopes that an adult might play now. We're raising hopes. That rebe love might play next week so in paris and london. But but i do think it's. It's a fine balance for replay. How much he plays. Because i do think that that hungary described david comes from those injuries that he's had certainly the the real edge to that hunger. I don't think it would be the same. Had not been through that pretty harrowing period at the start of his career where he was watching. These youngsters surpass him. These are the youngsters who had been playing junior finals with fears to sit on the sidelines for nearly a year off. The heat had one of the earliest breakthroughs reaching that. Is it a fourth round at the us open quarter-finals. Yeah when i did that interview with them and spend the whole thing startled about how deep is voice was yeah. He was kind of the first those russians to have the big break three and then he had to sit and watch the more passing by have been incredibly hard. He talked about periods of depression. And it wasn't just one injury. It was a few so he must have plenty of horace. Look at tennessee kakinada. She was in quite similar boat to him. There are plenty of real horror stories about plays that just never recover from those sorts of injuries early in their in their careers. So i think that is where the hunger stems from. But yeah he's he he'll need to. He'll need to manage it he'll need to. He'll need to withdraw from sofia qualifying. He'll need today. Interest in his agent is the same agent to manage the entire career of john mcenroe and continues to manage the career of joe mcenroe post tennis and during all of his exhibitions appearance. A guy called. Gary swain in american guy works for g. And he's been with rube left. Since since i heard of rube left for the first time and and i find it quite interesting association. Because it's it's it's meant. Mackinaw is being really heavily. Invested emotionally inr bless career himself in. I think he catherine you would have been on the champions all probably when rebecca was coming along and seeing. I pretty sure. They practiced a little bit together. They would hit together. Mcenroe laugh and and you know. I mean we gary somebody kassar ni- get along well with from our danes mcenroe but his life is stressful daily with and all the time as much as we..
"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.
"sampras" Discussed on The Functional Tennis Podcast
"They would probably dominate anyway, but they are less vulnerable in my opinion. Makes the gap bigger and it does take away a bit of excitement that you would get different surfaces and whatever else can you tell me Paul like from working with these great players as mentioned Sampras. Hannemann Federal Sloan, Stevens, can you give our listeners inside in the train of these guys like how hard do they train? How much detail goes into the train? I'll look at it you know now it's like everything else it's so. detail oriented. You know in terms of won't you do your strength and conditioning when you do your tennis how much time you need for recovery of the dietary stuff I it's it's a, it's a business and these guys are professionals and depending on what's going on in the year that will tell you how much they work on their tennis, how much they work on their training off court and how much is rest and recovery and with the Great. They win so much that really their training blocks are very specific for instance, Roger. Do a big preseason train in. December. And Dubai you know and that that would push him basically right up until the. Word Swing, and then we have another little training block on clay to use of the sliding and the dynamics on the clay, and then have a quick little training period, which was almost no time to get used to the Movement for grass, and then you move right into the summer. So there's kind of there's one big one before the season, and then as the court changes courts, surface changes, you kind of piecemeal a couple others together, and then you do another training block if you can after Wimbledon to get ready for the big summer heat session in the US on hardcourts. I'm more pushing their focus within a training session compared to define that the top guys could just focus in better concentrate better. No messin. Yeah I. Think W I think the difference is they're very specific. They really understand what they need to do and they're able to go out and execute that and feel pretty comfortable. Even in their days where they're not playing well or their little tired they don't tend to not doubt themselves, and that ability pays huge dividends when it comes to being under pressure when you're playing matches because. You Trust yourself in big moments. 'cause you've been through so much. But their focus is much more laser like I think they tend to be less reactionary to what happens on a given day. And they tend to be kind of Bir pragmatic and professional about evaluating what's gone on to get them to a certain point. So you could say they really focus on their long term goals. That's always yeah in front of them. Yeah. Yeah they've got a great macro picture of what's going on. Well just GonNa Change Subject here still talking about coaching, but we know now to so many stats available. They've tennis players have meticias in front of our stations. Like has your job got a lot harder or easier Goldman from let's say nineteen ninety nine to twenty twenty. I don't know that I would say harder or easier I would say different. Now you have to mix and match all of the different areas, the analytics that you talk about all the metrics that are used and you know I definitely look at data but I tend to like to drive things with more evaluation on the kind of player in the kind of person someone is the art now to me, the art is taking the science and plugging it in so that it makes sense that the challenge is doing that because if you use the science in isolation, I don't think it works just like if you use just. A bucket of balls and don't use analytics that's not going to maximize what you can do either. So the challenge now is the recipe, the ingredients putting them together and everybody has a different philosophy about that, and my philosophy is driven by the kind of player you're dealing with and kind of the game style and mental and emotional makeup of a player, and then using the numbers to reinforce what you want the player to understand to do better so that they can continue to improve. So it's a balancing of that. I don't I really don't feel like it's a harder or easier thing. I just think it's a new environment. Really getting all the information. As you say, you're into player type player they are headed react the information. You're really using your experience standpoint it altogether on Dan you're coming out with the answer the right answers you hope yeah, that's the goal. Yeah. That's the goal that is something else that came up a few weeks. So we had cut an island these. and Ex Irish pro he was talking about he said ultimate ninety percent of a player when the much it stands to the player ten percent is the coach and players have to be more responsible and drive to boost themselves to too many times. They blame the coach which would you agree with that? Yeah I. Think Look. I. Think we're every relationships different every. Player coach relationship is different but look that's the one thing that I love about tennis is it's about the player I mean there's no timeouts there's no relying another teammates. There's no, you're basically on Senator Wimbledon naked. You'd better be able to problem solve. You'd better find solutions and so just as a player does something great, it's not about the coach it's about The player when the player does something not so great. It's not about the coach it's about the player and the player has to figure out how to use the tools in its tool kit, and that's part of the coaching. Philosophy right by my coaching philosophy really is how little can I say to get the player to understand what I want them to do? And how well can I prepare them to be independent and solve problems under pressure on the tennis court that that's kind of what you want to. That's the dynamic you want to set up the player not I want them to be dependent on May not I want them to look over at me every time they hit a good shot or a bad shot. I want them to be able to take deep breath on pressure and be able to manage the environment, and so I think conners pretty spot on I think takes a team to help. But ultimately when they're on a tennis court, it's about you out there it's about the player. This is Ron nicely into Cuesta planned task it on core coach and it seems like you're a big..
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.
Federer Comes Of Age
"Hello everyone and welcome to the tennis podcasts. Wimbledon relived. Not Say Manic Monday. 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. The the same time I still find myself trying to crowbar these matches into to be able to watch them all in time because we just watched four hours of a match for today's podcast, having recorded yesterday's show, and then we've got tomorrow's look forward to I mean look I'm having the time of my life. I'm relive I'm reliving two thousand and one and loving every single minute of it, but yeah around actually making meals for children and go into the pollock, and all that sort of thing I am struggling a bit to fit it all in hence sleep out today we spending. We're dwelling quite a while in in two thousand and one land. Aren't we today tomorrow? Yeah and it turns out that that's important. Because David didn't see two thousand one Wimbledon. Much of two thousand and one full stop you in a windowless room in the ASS. End of Germany awesome thing. Date I did I missed the entirety of the two thousand one Wimbledon until the final which we'll get onto more tomorrow when we, she watched that as one of them it because the woman doing tomorrow is the two thousand and one men's singles final between Goran, Ivanisevic and Pat, rafter today it's Pete Sampras against Roger Federer in the fourth round, but yet the time. Time I was in my fourth year working for the ACP tool I'd been communications manager for three and a half years traveling around I had informed the powers that be that I would like to have got writing and interviewing and all that sort of thing, and they said okay. Then you can go work on this new thing that we've got called a website. And it's and we produce it in Hamburg Germany. So off. You go to the office that. Germany. Not the end of anywhere I thought it was somewhere a little more. Than that. Politically, it was delightful, delightful The office was Nelson somewhere. And Anyway I'm sitting and get there and I'm like we get to the fourth round magic Monday manic Monday and I'm thinking right. There's a lot of crack matches on here. This Roger Federer against Pete Sampras Tim Henman lighter. which channel is it on here in Germany? And they said it's on premiere I said all right. Where's where's that said? We haven't got that one. So. So I was a little bit dubbed by this and frantically trying to think. How do I get out of this job? But. I've signed up for the rest of the entire week until the weekend when I would go off to Gustad for the tournament that. So anyway, that's when I discovered that actually it was available on BBC radio through their website in inverted commas I that I'd never heard of before, but anyway so I was able to listen to the BBC radio coverage throughout the rest of the week, and that's what made me decide. That I wanted to be a commentator right and that week. And he fight off emails to to the commentators he'd be listening to. You. Yeah Yeah, Inkatha. Who is the tennis correspondent? Richard Evans, very long time experienced respected journalist and reporter send the Sunday Times tennis correspondent Dana coincide of the BBC. And they brought the championships alive for me over in Germany and I mean that's what they do. That's what the job of the radio commentator is for people who can't say to try to bring it alive and. It did the job for me. It made it magical I mean I. I actually think that Wimbledon. If you think of Tim Henman's run as well and everything else that went into it, it was one of the all time. Great. Wimbledon's including the ending. And to listen to it on the radio where your mind is having to do the job for you, because you can't see it, using the words, they they describe and you conjuring images on the back of those words, it makes even more mystical and fantastical David Law.

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.

Ram, Salisbury clinch men's doubles title in Melbourne
"The doubles final. Men's doubles final. Won by Britain's Joe Salisbury and America's Ranchi Ram and. It was their first. Is the first ever slam for Joe Spur. Who played brilliantly today? And Reggie Fram. I didn't realize this. She study five years of age. He'd never want amendable slam either. He'd WanNa mixed doubles slam last year. What a moment for him? It was something like his fifty eighth. Men's Grand Slam tournament something like that fifty six or fifty eight thirty fine. He got his first one and for it's one of those partnerships switch has massively worked out for both of them. I mean Joe Souls you know not many people knew about each other souls bree eighteen months ago and now he's a grand slam champion. Ram has helped him get over the line and they were. I mean they were the seeded team. They're up against a inexperience this path and they showed their class in that in that match. They were the number of points they created in men's doubles where served dominates was extraordinary. They were so good on. Return and Joe Salisbury. In particular felt like the best buy on the call he was. He was fantastic and he's now put himself in a position to about the Olympics to to be at the Olympics and choice the partner. He's this puts him up to four in in the world and if he's top ten executive Olympics he gets to select his partner and he was asked by by Russell Fuller on the BBC explicitly. They would you like to play with Andy Murray and he said Yeah. I thought it'd be super cool and I'd love that which I mean tough on for Jamie. Murray very tough on but I mean amazing for diesels breed and Rajiv Ram mm-hmm island today used to be coached by Australian tournament director. Craig toilet would you believe I'm you this because when when when he said that unquote that it reminded me. I remember being in the tournament in Qatar in two thousand two when I met Craig Tully Abner Mason. Before he was an aid. Come over I think to sort of run. Some some sort of Kemp's training camps and I got into and I actually Santamaria Good Company. Really really good start to way before his tennis Australia days and he he used to be the head coach or captain of the Illinois University Tennessee he was. He was doing that for about ten years and he ran the whole program at telenor. University and on his team was Rajiv. Ram Delic remember him and he told me about those two and it was one of those where you know somebody tells you about players whose or coming up poor. Who's a college? I remember writing these down on a piece of Bay right. I'm going to look out for these guys you know and see what like What he's like? Mike is a man with a served. That's a carbon copy. If Pete Sampras yes I love it when that happened down to what he does is with his left foot ticks. Yeah it's extraordinary
"sampras" Discussed on Beyond the Baseline
"When you're trying to win one of these and every single major it's reinforced at their three guys that are better than you. I mean I don't think you go totally fatalist, but it's gotta come into dominant teams mind late right sets when he's I thought that whenever joke, which was absolute signature win in part because it's at the lost that match boy that would have. That's kind of loss. It would've taken months to recover from, but what does it to, to all these guys ages, you know, literally thirty on down knowing that as good as they are as many five hundred titles? They win their these three guys that are. Just gonna make life really, really difficult. I mean, we talk about all the time, but it's just the infortunately if you grew up in that area, you played in that era with those guys, I mean, 'cause some, some of them can kind of say, well, maybe, maybe the, you know, the light at the end of the tunnel is is just time one. I mean they're not gonna play forever. They might play close to forever. But oh you're right. But that's you know, for some of the younger people, maybe that's the only thing that they can really turn to. But someone like Nisha Corey, for example. I mean, there's not much time there between them and he's, you know struggling and has struggle with his own injuries, and, and things like that. So you know it's not like he has an infinite lane on his career. So I don't know what that does to your tear self belief. I mean 'cause if you're if you're in that, you know, if you're in that partner, you know, you're in that, that role you probably just be leave the job and go some real. I think you. You go to work every day. You're well compensated. You like what you do. It's not breaking rocks. It's good. Okay. Nishikori is living a great life. But how many more defeats do you take before you start a start to say deep down? I'm never gonna get one of these Emma anyway, just something they will. And this. The flip side of this is amazing. I mean we, we say, golden era, but that's exactly what it is. I mean, the flip side of all. This is just an incredible time if you'd said, not only I talked before about how this Roy Emerson record when I'm dating myself a twenty years ago, this was the great question in tennis, and Pete Sampras surpassed it. And then three guys of surpass Pete Sampras. If you said, three guys are gonna win twenty eighteen and fifteen majors respectively. They're going to bat these things around, and almost like a cartel, and they're all doing it at the same time. I mean, that's to me is what's absolutely remarkable about this over this. This sports been played for, you know, since we started telling these things, it's still been well, over one hundred years in the three leaders on the men's side are all doing the simultaneously, and they were all all born within basically five years of each other. That's incredible. All right. How's that for an upbeat note letter? Long live the big three. All right. That does it for this week.

"sampras" Discussed on The Tennis Podcast
"But this is this does take some getting used to because visually. What this looked like was rough on it out of twenty fifteen leaving four hundred short looking just a bit bereft that and lacking confidence, and I really didn't expect to be thinking now told him in. It was a damp squib of a match. It was I mean. It may very well paps even probably would still resulted in a joke vich victory on on tonight's form. Even if Niddle had shown up in played his best may very well be talking about the same result. But. I I'm left with the feeling aside for just. Yeah. Gobsmacked appreciation of if. Joke which is cheating, and he's now won for the holding four at the same time again, which I mean is already the first man ever to win all four slams twice. I man every evening to hold full slams twice, and he could end up holding for the same time twice. And that's it. You know? He needs to win. What the French to say? Yeah, he's trying to remember which one running one spans, but still my my writing feeling is. The muse men to bit about what we witnessed about con. I can make sense of Djokovic being brilliant. He was billion for for almost six months before that I expected him to be a maybe a little bit surprised by five unforced errors in three sets but him being billion doesn't surprise me. Nadeau? Tonight surprises me big time. So Djokovic fifteen thousand seventeen federal twenty without this conversation a few times, but he's just he's just getting closer and closer and closer. And where does it all stop? Well, penny for Pete Sampras is to say. But I just can't get my head around the fact that he chased down. I year olds record. Raise the bar go to fourteen within you know, with invest in ten years of retiring fetters, overtaken him another ten years and now three guys have. And they're all still are. Keep showing up when they your never be for the plane. But I mean, it is just staggering how these three of dominates. And China and changed just completely rewritten all the record books and just just dismissed history. And and it's quite hard to. Cloud to process ready. We'll be able to process it better. I think in a few years when they go on. Men's tennis, however, much there, you know, few shining lights like sits pass of this week. I I know this, but. Men's tennis is going to be in a worse place of they go on this is an extraordinary time that is reaching an end. And that's yeah. Isn't just slams dominated that, you know, sometimes we can almost focus too much on the slams. But you know, they hold the record for most titles. Federal the most weeks at number one your ritual probably pretty close to that. If I right now. What it's as routine around in his pocket. If I were to take out. Cliff? Fifty cent coin say, right, Catherine which you can put that on. You know, I'm old school. You can put that on either found the Dow or Novak Djokovic to win the French Open. Oh, okay. Does your different question too? I. The dow. Right. Let's get mine out. That's going on jock itch for the frame. Right. So he's a real coins? Yup. So to tuna dollars and one of each I just I think just that. think that. Is a I mean, obviously is most of his thing in the world. He's a different player on clay. He's he's never had an injury that wanting jury on CLYDE in in twenty sixteen which is the Djokovic one wrote on Garros dulls performances in the last two years it right on Garros and the ways playing generally off class. Well, makes me think he's gonna be in tiptop condition wrote on girls, and I think he wins that even against your. A SIEM which I do that those nothing won't physically with adults. And there is no way that whatever was plaguing. Mentally tonight would play him on clay because he doesn't. And he doesn't have to change his game. That's the interstate. Oh, I wanna see real. This all on. Eimi? What's gone? Any months creams head? My. I call white to see Novak Djokovic against Rafael on clay. I cannot wait in this fall. If you got any questions for money.
