Calling Tennis Remotely, with Ravi Ubha
"Welcome to new challenges remaining. I'm Ben Rothenberg as millions of folks around the world enter their third month of adjusting to working remotely I thought this might be a good time to share the experiences of what it's like to work remotely in tennis when tennis is a sport that sts professionally which doesn't really currently and much of the world feed commentary on the tennis matches you watch at home is delivered from a world away from the courts where the matches are taking place and one of the Veterans of this craft is. Ravi who also works on site at tournaments as a freelance reporter. So foot both the close the distant kind of work in Tennessee. So Ravi will describe here what. It's like working in broadcasting rotely at lifestyle of being distant from the courts and the challenges of creating atmosphere. A place that you're nowhere near so hopefully you will find this interesting. Maybe a little bit resident in these times of distance working that we're all living in and general distance. This interview was recorded near the end of this year's Australian. Open as you'll be able to tell but hopefully it has some some meaning residents or something in our lives. Today here is Ravi. I'm thrilled to be joined on this episode by my friend Robbie who is aware of many different hats in the tennis world. He is this week at the Australian Open. As we record this on my I'll and the pressroom and I'll made of mine as we walked back and forth press conferences and whatever else and share reactions to whatever missed overheads and such happened at once. He's one of those voices in unison gasping and signing and also a voice that I hear actually on the TV and watching at home as a frequent world feed commentator tennis Ravi. Thank you for being here. Ben My pleasure. Thank you for people who maybe more or less with you. Just how did you get into tennis? I in your life. How did you for make the jump into doing it as a career? In my life I grew up in Canada so It surprises me that I actually got into tennis. Because as you know. It's a big hockey country at my earliest memories at home when I was a little kid. Four or five watching the US Open in the background was on TV. Washington handle who? I think. He's my idol. When it comes to sportsman was younger so it started from that Played my whole life. Love playing very regularly and then got into it You know my profession and when I moved to London I was in the early two thousands. I is really a writer and thereafter going into the booth and doing You know share a picture of of commentating and TV work also. So how'd so the writing we've got a lot of show or other writing side of its. I'm more curious about how you make that. Jump how you go from being on the page. What was your first time being behind a microphone? I remember it well. It was a two thousand nine. I was asked to do a Davis Cup tie between Russia and Russia and Romania And so I did that s skew. Kinda thing. Yeah it was actually victor. S Q in McCall usually my first match. Oh I remember well and I think it was because they were looking for people who who just new tennis and covered tennis and as somebody who grew up broadcasting also. I was reported in Montreal where I grew up doing TV. I think they knew that. And they just stick. Okay let's Let's bring him in on something I wanted to do. So it really started from my point. According I've done a lot of tennis radio. Color Commentary. Saddam that different from doing TV. But I'm curious what as you got more into? Tv having been a writer having been a reporter. What skills are translated into what once? Don't translate what he to learn on that new in this new role well it For example the attention to detail that you have in imprinted writing. I think that's very helpful when it comes to being in the booth you know when digging up statistics knowing where to look and knowing how to get them to look for the inside stuff rather than just the basic statistics. I saw you antennas abstract on your computer just nine. Yeah for sure a great website. That's that's something that I bring with me. On the print side things that are different You know you know went to jump jump in and out to in went to Q. Out I'd also just broadcasting is a different is a different also voice. Really when you're as to when you're talking somebody like as we're chatting but now it's it's a different voice you put on. You also have to learn. Went to kind of hit your spots when it comes to nailing down for example phrases after a particular matches. Done you WanNa with a big extra It's not exactly the lead on when it's so important for peace pace but it's kind of the big finish in broadcasting so that there are little things like that they're different is that. I think you become more accustomed to as you do more shoe and actually imprint. They really don't emphasize most editors or papers or publications don emphasize ending so much. Onto a real sign off they most articles fade out or some editors sort of cut from the bottom which is frustrating when that happens because the idea try to put endings on Surrey generally. Bs that when did. When did it become a more full-time thing for you? And how did sort of adding work in that particular line? Is it same as other freelance work or is it different? Yeah no it's pretty much since the I would say two thousand thirteen fourteen and I I would say it's become more of doing that Rather than writing than before it was kind of opposite. He's been more of the writing than the broadcast. I always say since two thousand and thirteen and fourteen. I've lucky enough to to do a lot and it's something I love doing. I mean I sat on the air sometimes tournaments that you know. It's such an honor privileged to be doing it because as a tennis fan my whole life you know. Don't consider it a job. I'm very lucky doing something I really really love. And that's all really can ask for you. Mentioned sort of how the attention to detail in the writing can help the TV. Tv helped the writing effort to go the other direction too. Well helps in the sense that I get to watch a lot of tennis I believe and so I think I have a pretty good grasp of the players so it helps to foster ideas because you know for example. I'll give you an example I was watching an accommodated a master on the Brazilian player. A couple of years ago Eliane Pereira And I was digging up homework doing research for her master when she was playing at home. And I just read Interesting stuff about her. How she grew up in really extreme poverty you know. She didn't have a bathroom in her house. She had her bathroom in kind of the back garden. And so I thought well that'd be nice idea to do a longer feature a long story on inside that Saranda presumably written for the time. Remember that So it does help I mean and I think Ben as you know the more you homework you do on any subject on any play you realize that every player has a great story or has a story to tell I think that's the lesson that I learned. I try to bring them in the booth especially at times when a match is getting out of hand when it's not it's not as dramatic in oak at six one five two or six one three love. Matt out of Control. I think you want to sprinkle in those nuggets Talk about other stuff rather than you know the rallies techniques stuff.

"Along with two other net flicks films recently debuted at a handful of theaters and they hope to get Oscar nods for them. So we'll see I mean net. Flicks. Is it's going to be interesting because this costs a lot of money, it's not cheap to do this. And they're dedicating some people have said about thirteen billion a year in total for original programming. Now, they used to do up until now like five or six billion a year. This would more than double what they've been doing. So we'll see if they can keep that pace up. You're going to have to probably have to increase their subscription rate a little bit. But. Pretty pretty amazing output by Netflix. Netflix chief content officer, Ted Saranda us said the company expected to have one thousand originals movies and TV shows on its platform by the end of this year thousand originals. Wow. That's a lot originals are obviously a better moneymakers for Netflix since they don't have to acquire the expensive streaming rights from some other company. So there's and they're banking that their lineup of root of original content continues to drive subscriptions worldwide in October net. Flicks reported nearly seven million new subscribers in the third quarter. Wow. That's pretty good though. That's coming from a lot of that's coming from India. So they really are creating a lot of content for that country. Yeah. Yeah. I've noticed. That's the reason their new subscribers are coming from that country. Which is they're saying, well, we've got a great content. I subscribe for the lot of our subscribers that are that are watching us there. Right. I don't know how you break that up though, what what they're trying to figure out the best way to break it up. And I'm sure they'll figure it out. Well, this year the reporting a negative cash flow of three billion dollars, even with the new subscriptions. I mean, that's amazing. Look sure that much money that you can't. They're bringing in sixteen billion, whereas all that money. I guess it's going to licensing fees licensing phase and original programming. But it seems to be kind of a crappy managed company if you can't make ends meet on sixteen billion a year. Well, I'm sure that they'll say we could make ends meet, but we wanna try to grow because I grow that subscription lists. And we need to keep going up. Look amazing though. That's amazing. I can't believe they're losing three billion a year seem it does seem. I think I could do that. I could do better than that on sixteen billion income does seem like you'd want to maybe cut back on a couple of VI's. You give me sixteen billion in revenue, and I will do better than lose three billion dollars for you year. I guarantee it Netflix. Give me a call. Give me a call. I mean, that's a strong guarantee. I do think that it's worthy of an underwear. Eating. No. Because you know, are you saying that you would only lose two billion? No, I'm saying, I don't lose any money. I'm saying I least break even least-free given on revenue of sixteen billion. I'm gonna break even for at least three Hastings. Call take care of you. Triple eight nine hundred.

"I don't know if there's any planet that afflicts mercury's action like it's it's core signification 's as much as Neptune where mercury is like, let's sort things Neptune's like it's all one, you know, right? Yes. The because it's like Saturn can inhibit mercury can like inhibits speech or stop it from happening or in sometimes very literal ways, but Neptune does something else to it at like warps it in this interesting way. What mercury is trying to communicate? Yeah. I think that this is definitely set up to be. This is part of this is actually part of why I was saying about the new moon like just look around. Don't come in like super eight to to see planned where you don't have to because mercury retrograde in its detriment square Neptune is not a not particularly clear of path. And so so pray for me because I'm going to be flying across the ocean three days after the station. Right. Well, I mean, I always say long distance travel as an exercise in Saranda you into the system and. You give up control over what happens in win. You have a number that somebody else's managing, and you will get what you need to go as the as the system chunks through and that is part and parcel of Neptune and mercury together that I said set surrendering of logical or rational fact-based kind of control planning you fact-based. I think that's a good way of putting like we're relinquishing the fact based approach I think is a good way of putting the. Manifestation often goes towards which is the more deceptive sort of tendencies of mercury Neptune is one of the things that I am always a little more nervous about sometimes. And it's it's nervous. It makes me nervous seeing it larger like mundane scale of like what does a larger scale signature of deception mean broader Monday in context. Foamy very familiar at you. We something like this lost year. Yes. December twenty seventeen mercury stationed direct at thirteen sad and Neptune was eleven Pisces. And I think we talked about that idea of misinformation, or, you know, maybe deceit or deception or allusion coming out with the news and says. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, I dunno. Somebody mentioned to me being a little nervous about it happening after some of the election stuff happening in the US. I don't necessarily wanna go there fully 'cause that's a whole other can of worms. But yeah, I mean one of the on the bright side, though, it's a very positive allusion. Sometimes the allusion that mercury Neptune is able to create sometimes is very good. When you're in like this fear of it. And sometimes don't realize when you step out. It's only went to step outside of that in Nebbi. Maybe the thing for many of the people if you get hit by this transit that it's not until you get to the other end that you may realize that everything experiencing thought you're seeing while you're in the the sort of epicenter of it was not quite what it seemed that at the time yet..

"They said, the characters will live on, but this the it's the first marvel show to get cancelled first of all, and we've all talked about how the quality's been declining ever since daredevil season. One of these shows and Netflix has Dave. This is a Netflix decision, even though it's a collaboration between think. They mean when they say that iron-fist will go on selene don's art. I think he will. His heart will go up. I mean, easy. He could all these characters. The supporting characters can show up in all the other shows they can spin off higher. During the obvious and there, which is when Disney has their own platform, even headway alluded to it, the Oshii something about that. Yeah. So that's the other thing is they can just light it back. They did, but why would they use iron fist? Because I don't know. I got it. Yeah, this is my thought this surprise me too. I was like, why became so that you know, I don't know if it's necessarily hurting flicks. I think there's two things I think net flicks has a quality content thing that they want to portray. Yeah, and iron fist, although better than the first season is still not great. And I think a lot of that too is if it's not great, there's really not an audience for it like dare-devils daredevil. That's that's the name. That's the brand that started all of this. Everyone knows. Daredevil is just a good Jones. Has you know the the female kind of tie to it, the allegoric to rape and trauma. And family issues an action. And then Luke cage is obviously got the, you know, Harlem and the the, the, the music and all that stuff. Iron fist really hang nothing. We talked about this before this came out like that, and we're expecting a an awesome martial art show in and that would have been something, but they gives us absolutely nothing. Clearly, look, Netflix, look, they have numbers. They have data we don't know about and they've looked at the data and they're like, no, we're cutting this because the thing is I read this article on, it's like it's not like they're like, canceling all the stuff because it's all going to move to Disney. They already ordered a season, three of Jessica Jones cage. They're cool with that shit. The numbers must not be good on this. The numbers weren't what I read. So Ted Saranda is the programming guy. So you think this was like a net flicks decision in Marvel's going to capitalize on it?.

"But recently tweeted that great artists stealing update, and that's so true and music such a great example of this with all the sampling that goes on in the remix that go on. It's even interesting when you think about. The people who are really great songwriters. Max Martin comes to mind. He's one of the greatest songwriters of all time is the third. Most number one singles after Paul McCartney John Lennon and his technique is all about taking elements of the chorus, but introducing them much earlier in the songs the time it actually reaches the chorus. It's already catch. It's already familiar already interested in it. And so over and over again, you start to see you start to realize that creativity is not about novelty. It's not about newness about the bland of the familiar in the new, right? But going back to the creative curve, there's a point where it becomes too familiar to get sick of it. Like whenever uptown phone comes on now, just change the channel 'cause I don't. It's just I've heard it. So I'm tired of it. Yeah, hundred percent. And this is actually have actually done studies with music specifically where they just make people listen the music over and over again and follows us you shape like we have this very predictable way which are preferences chain. What's interesting is that affect happens both at the. Individual level be group level and the population level, because obviously within a population, people are experiencing things at different times in different rates. But at all three of these levels, the same thing happened. So one of the key jobs for creator is understand how familiar novel something. So what in the book is interviewed all of the leading academics who studied creativity, cross neuroscience ecology policy, but I also interviewed twenty five living creative genius people like Ted Saranda achieve continent officer, Netflix billionaires, David Rubenstein PASOK, and Paul songwriting duo did most of the music for LA La Land, dear enhancing and the greatest showman and was so interesting from these interviews is a because familiarity. So important. One of the things that these creatives do that seems like unexpected is the actually are some of the biggest consumers of culture not just craters, but consumers of culture because they realize to know what's going to have the right amount of. Familiarity that the know what their audiences experienced, they have to be out there. They have to be consuming. If Ted Saranda told me the story about how as a kid, he was the clerk at the local video rental store, and he literally watched every single movie in the store and like granted, this was the eighties. So there's less movies every single moving the store. And he says, is a big way which developed his taste because so much of taste so much of creativity is knowing what's already out there and how you're creating will relate to pass, creative products will cause so this idea of consuming content, right? So you kind of can have the stuff that you can remix, right and five figure out what's millions novel like we all consume, right? We're all like on our smartphones, looking at read it or Instagram watching net flicks. So why is it that some people are able to take that stuff they consume and create something new with it? Yes. So what's interesting is that how these craters consume is different than how probably your. I consume like we'll watch a movie in sit back on lax. We read a book. We wanted to spend disbelief. What's interesting is great craters. They like they touch and they feel it in the interact with it and they imitate it. You actually find imitation as a huge part of the creative process in the consumption process for these creatives talk in the book about any of you and Ross Sorkin who editor of the New York Times anchored squawk box wrote the book too big fail co-creator of the show billions like someone who knows how to learn, he's learn how to learn and was so interesting. He told me that when he first wanted to become a journalist, what he did is he would take front page articles from the New York Times business section, and he literally outline how are they structured in the start with a quote, this start with a story star with a supporting detail and by learning that structure of a great creative work that tell you actually learn, what is that familiar baseline?.

"Are able to create heads, right? What is that? And so in the book would actually say it's not about analytics per se, like they do have a strong element of feedbacks of feedback. What I'm really focused on where feedback, whether that's qualitative or whatever that's part of their process. But it's actually the book quite a bit is that consumption is actually the most important thing because consumption where they're going, and they're consuming huge amounts of information about their vertical. That's what allows them to create that thing, which is that right blend of the familiar and the novel, or would you call before noticeably new? Right? Because again, it's entered. They're not creating something radically new, right? It's just the right amount of new and so-. Consumptions actually huge part of that because when you consume when you know everything else that is out there I talk about in the book I interviewed Ted Saranda the chief content officer of Netflix who started his career as a video store clerk where literally watched every single movie in the store because he was bored. When you do that, you start to into it where the white space is right. If you've seen everything that's already out there before you're able to better understand will what will be fresh, what will be new? You see this obviously, these days in media with the deal like hot takes right want someone else's already made the hot, take a few times. You don't wanna make the same point. It's not going to be relevant. And so media and journalists are conflict. Thinking of like, how can I pry that fresh perspective to a story we've already heard before and the prerequisite for that is you have to hurt it before you have to done the consumption. You have to put yourself in your audience's shoes to know what have they experienced what's out there. And so I think it's a lot less using the word formulaic. I think it's less formulaic. I actually think our brains are designed to do this, but there is a process and a key part of that process is it's really consumption. It's really ingesting in knowing will. What else is out there? Where is that white space? And do you look at things and go? Well. Okay. Every creative type rapes this book, every creative type deploys the creative curve. Everything can't be a hit. Like it becomes the sort of thing where I'm like a like, listen to the book and reading through the concepts going. So everybody does this and this is. We're never going to be in that place. We're still going to people who followed this precisely and actually hit things exactly and just doesn't work. There's a lot of mitigating factors. People don't like talking about luck. I love talking about luck luck is like ninety plus percent. I think it'd be a well. A lot of hard work make it makes you. I don't know. I think they're just certain things that happened that are just excessively lucky. A celebrity happens to where something that you're doing. That's very similar to something someone else's doing, and that's the one that goes. I think. I think when you look at those things, I think that actually the biggest factor of why people might follow everything the book but may not still work. I actually think hardest to follow the creative community's chapter. I think it's hard to build that community. I think you can take years. I think you have to be in the right place. I think oftentimes when building community that's where actually I think there is more luck involved in terms of like, who do you meet at a party? Right? But that's the part where I think it's actually the least able to really nail it unless you you have to move to the right place to go to the right event if the put in the right amount of hustle, that's actually where the biggest wildcard comes into, because if you have that creative community, right, if I talk about in the book YouTubers where you know YouTubers like there's this house this apartment building in LA that a lot of them live in and they promote each other, the share best practices..

"I wonder though professor lots if part of the success of net flicks is a little simpler than that. I mean, there are certain things that Netflix has just done for people who love to watch movies and TV that the other networks, the other studios flat out refused to do one listener described the joys of binge-watching in a mess. She left through our app one a vox pop. I really like the Netflix model of having shorter series of their original content that is almost it seems made to be benge watched. I think if you spread it out over multiple weeks, watching an episode per week, it doesn't have the same fact as if you watch it, you know all in a weekend or something like that. You know, it kind of seems more like a an extended movie if you will. And I really liked that. Thank you to Caleb in Austin for leaving us that note professor lots net flicks just decided they weren't gonna play by Hollywood's game. We're going to give people exactly what they want exactly when they feel like it. And to be honest Hollywood knew that this was a possibility and refused to let us fans have that until net flicks force them to. I think there's two key aspects on what allows net flicks to provide the service that it does. The first is technology. The fact that it's internet distributed and that that form of distribution allows us to have that kind of on demand access as opposed to broadcasting cable. Which technologically needs to send one thing to everyone at the same time. And so that's a key difference on the technology side. On the economic side, it's important to remember that Netflix is a subscription based business like h. b. o. but very different from the rest of television and that advertising basis for television is what has driven the industry to focus on timeliness. It's very concerned with who is watching when are they watching the shows because then they're watching the commercials. So those are the two big differences in Netflix as a service that allows it to do things that are so different from the broadcasting cable channels back in twenty sixteen as Netflix was beginning to ramp up at spending on original content. This company's chief content officer. Ted syringes spoke about the future of television on a round table with the Hollywood reporter. In the middle. You'll briefly here Lacey rose, who's the TV editor for the Hollywood reporter. But here's part of what Ted Sorrento said. We have a one on one relationship with our subscribers. If you don't like what you're watching on Netflix, if you're not impressed enough with what you're watching Netflix, you just wouldn't click cancel right. And you can't do that with anyone here. And so that does make we have to make noise we have to. We are part of our businessmen day here is right. We're making event television and it ain't cheap. It's not a cheap thing to do. So I didn't. We have to take those big swings every once in a while and you're not. We're not competing against ABC sitcoms we're, we're competing against Pokemon go where competing against the, you know, two hundred million dollar blockbuster movies were competing in really noisy world for attention for some of these shows. Television is. I think there was a lot of press around whether or not like runaway budget or it wasn't. We knew going in that when you work a bigger Bessler and production, it's not going to be cheap, but it's going to be spectacular. That's Netflix chief content officer, Ted Saranda speaking to the Hollywood reporter, Tom Noonan. What's your reaction to what Ted said there? Well, I think that I think it's it's really smart that they're not thinking in such a limited manner as as the broadcast networks and and the basic cable premium cable have all sort of thought in the past, like their Netflix is playing with an entirely different playbook. We, we've gone through an era over the past twenty years or so where everything but broadcast TV is become more and more Mitch. Everything is smaller and smaller and smaller and Netflix comes along and says, Nope, we wanna be all things to all people and. That's that was disruptive beyond anyone's imagination. And the thing that was even crazier about it was they pulled it off Jack's tweeted, Netflix has saved television before Netflix original content. Television had become a business. They've saved us from.
