"Yeah, so years later. Serena would say I think. Maybe it just comes from growing up watching so much tennis me and Serena were the same. And she said like I loved watching Steffi and Monica that era when it was just them, they were such mental players, and just looking at that and being so influenced by that thinking one day I'm going to be there, so no doubt. Monica Seles was influential. Yeah, an inspiration for shore totally so just in case you're. As far as tennis getting seaver, sadly, the answer is I was wondering that actually know. Sports illustrated reported on it and said if anything, there's just been increasingly belligerent spectators this is. It's crazy to me. Tennis I feel like I put in the same category as like golf like quiet classy, so kind of thing that you watch them like Sundays and the fact that there's people getting belligerent are not being. Say I mean you'll love to see the passion Jim become unsure. Just be safe. Fans have stormed the courts when Roger Federer. And Serena. Williams have been playing. Those are three of the marquee names antennas, and if they're not getting the proper security, what's even happening yet for stars? What I'm learning, is we. The human race are bad at learning lessons this the one thing I now foreshore. So what's our girl Monica to now well? She eventually spoke out about the stabbing, and she said I didn't play for two and a half years after my stabbing nineteen, so you're going. Going through. Hey, what am I going to do? Am I going to return my not and everybody said Oh. My Gosh, those would have been your best two and a half years all this stuff i. wish I'd known what I know now, which is that you can still play great tennis at Twenty Eight? It doesn't just have to be in your early twenties, but that was a different time. You know it would be the worst thing I mean. There's a lot of bad here, but one of the terrible things. There's probably so many people that have come up to her being like. You could have been so great. As if it's fucking her fall, you know that's the thing when it's so outside of anything you could have done. It's just so much rougher and I'm sure. She hears that all the time totally I also really love what she said in an interview with Neal Conan on NPR in two thousand nine. She said I don't like living in the past. So or the future I love living in the present. I'm so excited about my life now. It took a lot of hard work. I mean I look back. In my life I've been I had some great highs and I had some. Great Low said just part of WHO I am today and what you know talking to hear what could have been know it could have gone if the Nice, stab me just a little bit over to the right. I could be paralyzed today, and if it never stabbed me, then I might have had more grand slams. Who knows those are all? What if the only thing I know is? It did happen it changed the course of my career. Career but I did end up coming back to the sport that I love. And that has given me so much in my life I'm so impressed I love that so much well. She's also gone on to be a children's book author and she even had a brief stint on dancing with the stars in two thousand eight. So you know okay good and she also helps train young tennis players at an elite level, so she is payment for word. Maybe I could call her up. Yeah, I think you and I know. Follow up episode, you and I being taught tennis by. As grunting the entire time, and you're just like this head of the racket..

They're even asking her about regret. Yeah, unfortunately, I was seventeen years sold, and I was like. Oh, I'm make sure everybody likes me. She said when she was young and still coming up. She wanted to please everyone, but she realized she wasn't out there to please people. She was out there to win. And then once I realized that you know you got to be an individual. Whatever it is, whatever makes you win that point? Point and for me as part of my game, and this is who I was, and you know some people liked it. Some didn't but I wasn't out there to please people. I was to win tennis tournament. Yes, girl let a girl grunt. I wish that I was like so sure of myself as Monica was. Yeah, like you know in mean girls, they're like ice. How Regina George Wearing army pants and flip flops so I wore pants. And that was me. That's probably still me. Good for her for sticking to her guns. Sure I'M GONNA. Say Monica Seles, is a Billion Times Cooler Than Regina, George because she's a nice little. Yeah I hear you good for her for being like this helps me win. This is my game. Don't tell me to change it. y'All shut up to add to this gender nonsense around the same time that the grunting controversy was peeking, she also rolled up at a tournament within you short haircut, and at that point, people were like she's like the aggressive boy grunting away.

Anyway so this young woman is dealing with all this nonsense, and at the same time she's dominating the tennis world still winning and being number one in a very competitive. Including the also dominant Steffi Graf Kudos, love it so in January nineteen ninety-three sell us.

"Press ever tennis active. Let's go to the big. Fella. Chris over. In the? Beside except. Championship. So in June of that year, sellers played in the French Open, which was her first Grand Slam tournament and made it all the way to the semis. A quick recap for those of you who aren't tennis heads like Myself Mrs. Wait isn't that what the rackets are called head? Yeah, the rackets have head. This is very foreign to me I love this. So the professional tennis tour has a bunch of tournaments throughout the year, but there were four majors known as the Grand Slams they are in chronological order for when they take place in the year at the Australian Open, played at Melbourne Park, in Melbourne the French. Open played. At Roland Garros in Paris Wimbledon played at the all. England Club in London and the US Open played in flushing. Meadow New York so. So for her at the age of fifteen to make it the semis of the French Open. That's awesome. It's a huge deal. She ends up losing to Steffi Graf, another legend, who is four years older than her and ends up winning the entire thing. So Steffi was ranked number one in the world. At that time she was a total dominant force in the sport. She was known for her inside out forehand. which just as an eighth grader who loved tennis I tried to? Were you also known for your inside out for I? was known for trying the inside out forehand allows. Okay, so at the end of nineteen. eighty-nine sell us was ranked number six in the world already. She's sixteen years old at this point so at sixteen just for context I was as we spoke about hitting tennis balls off the garage door, and once that stopping option I sometimes to tennis lessons from very bored man named Dennis. But mostly at sixteen I was like. How do I get white people's makeup not to look like a ghost on my face. And then I just gave up on makeup, and I have never since learned. Yeah, okay, see I. Blame You, maybelline, you know. Anyway just to get a sense of the landscape and tennis here, the other top players on the women's Circuit Steffi Graf from Germany, who we just talked about Martina Navratilova. Who's now playing for the US interesting side? Note? She was born in Czechoslovakia. Czech Republic learning so much on this podcast. But was stripped of her citizenship in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, five for becoming too Americanized, no way while the other top women's players were Iran sanchez-vicario, and can cheat a Martinez of Spain and Gabriella Sabatini from Argentina..

"I'm not sure whether it's possible to ramp it. Up in Roland Garros relived. That's what we doing today. Because we're featuring the nine hundred and ninety two French Open final between Monica Seles and Steffi Graf which I always remember twenty eight years on as being one of the greatest matches I've ever seen. It's something that meant an awful lot to me as a teenager. It was one of the suits of matches that made me fall in love with the sport and wanted to work in it for a living. And I'm just thrilled to say twenty eight years on having just watched it with Katrin. Wigger Matt Roberts. Here on the tennis podcast. It did not let me down ATL. I've absolutely loved the last few hours of tennis watching that. I've just done and Katharina matter here to relive it all with us. We've got Chris Clarry from the New York Times to talk to about it. We've got hines Cantat. Former coach of Steffi Graf. It was in the box that day to talk to as well but our immediate reaction is what Catherine well every. Message the eastern to the WHATSAPP group while you were watching the match within in caps and I now understand why I didn't know whether it's possible to have recently Boyce about a match that took place twenty eight years ago but it's one of the best much as I've ever seen and yeah that could be a bit of recency biased. Because I'm I'm high from finish finishing. What Ching it just just minutes ago? But I'm I'm open mouthed at the drama the quality and the the grit of what. I've just watched. Did it live up to your expectations? Mass based on the hype that I'd given about it over the last couple years. Sure did yeah those expectations who are about as high as they can get I'm not sure what's what's more nerve wracking going back to watch a match that you thought at the time was really good and hoping that lives up to or going back to watch your match that you've never seen and hoping it's really good. I think both those things are a little nerve wracking but yeah I mean just the just the back in that final sad especially between to all time greats in their prime with just a crowd that was hanging on every shot of every rally so much on the line and kind of it was just all about the tennis. Didn't at that stage in their rivalry. There was there was there was nothing else. Apart from the tennis is just your game against mine. Who's is better and you know it goes goes right to the end of that third set and until the very last moment you've no idea who's going to win Just just the thrilling thrilling match that stands the test of time for sure. So let's set the scene a little. I shall wait thousand. Nine hundred ninety to the Mass Transit Treaty was signed founding the EU Euro Disney opened in Paris. South Africans voted for political reform to end apartheid and Miley Cyrus. Selena Gomez and CARRINA pledge Giver Stroke Christine Applicable were born I think this and Christine applicable and e I. I really did not see Miley Cyrus coming there so those things happened. Monica says at the time was eighteen years of age trying to win a third French Open title in a row and a sixth Grand Slam singles title. Overall she'd one five grand slams in a row that she'd played or was she was about to wasn't she she'd she'd won four coming in and she was trying to win her fifth. Having been injured for Wimbledon the previous year Steffi. Graf was twenty two and trying to win her first French Open for four years and her eleventh Grand Slam title overall. Remember that she ended up on twenty two so they were the world's number one and two players and that's how it was staged in terms of its hype and the next day Jim Career would play against order and that really a bit of an afterthought compared to the hype that preceded this particular contest between these two women. It was similar. I'm trying to work out what it was similar to. Who watching recently it was. It was never ever ever to who came into that. Final is the overwhelming talked about players. And you know you see that. From time to time John McEnroe who won eleven out of twelve matches against the one or two player ranked player in the world and he ended up playing lendl. This was on that level and maybe even a little bit more because these two players just completely dominated women's terrace that time and meeting in the final. You just have to be on the SOFA. You had to be listening to it if you're out and about and there were seventeen thousand people in the stadium. The atmosphere you described it was it was like a big heavyweight title fight between the two best in the world and yet for the first set it was pretty one-sided it was yeah Monica salish. I think run out to a three love leads and just get the sense of that time how interesting it was because I mean for years people were having to adapt to Steffi Graf taken over women's tennis and then suddenly selfish comes along and its growth. Who's having to adapt to her and find answers in her game for the for the first SATU- didn't really have you just struck by by the Chris Painting of standing right on the baseline with double-handed on both sides such power a person I walk show. I have no idea whether she's going to hit the ball across. Cool all down the line. I just can't imagine how difficult it would have been to play against the disguised. She had on shots but yeah then like who like who. Great Champions do go off did figure out a way and manages to get a foot in the match in the second set and then and then it becomes a classic with both and playing so well but yet to begin with is is really dominating but collins was saying during the country that sellers plays double Chrissy both sides. Because Chris Evert was in the commentary box with her and she was advocating and it was really fascinating. Wasn't it to pick the brains of Chris. Evert a little bit during that country. She was advocating. That graph has got to change game because otherwise she will lose. It's as simple as that heard. Kerr game was not going to get it done. Yeah she was advocating. That prematch wasn't sharing exactly as you'd expect to her reads on on the match were were were buying on throughout. I as describing that that I set in which Monica sellers risk completely dominant and ended up forcing growth to to think. Kona feet out there. Sort of tactically and technically. I couldn't quite believe that that was the same player that we'd watched in. Rome relived a couple of weeks ago from the room. Find live nine hundred ninety two against Gabriella Sabatini which was a couple of weeks prior to to what we've just Watched in the French Open final. It looked like a different player. Now in no Sabatini is a completely different match open. She did deny rhythm and any kind of predictability in in the match and maybe that maybe that was her Kryptonite but it seemed like her serve had about twenty miles per hour. More on it in this French Open. She seemed so much quicker and lighter on her feet. Maybe she was exhausted in Rome. I I don't know that that one match but it looks like a completely different prospect to me. The Monica Seles that we watched today. I mean her movement didn't look like a huge weakness in game her served in like a huge weakness obviously it wasn't Steffi. Graf.

of flops though and NBC in the late seventies pink lady and hello Larry didn't quite make it today hello Larry and super train it was also a super trend right creation which was a does he also always talked about how he regretted spinning off not not spinning off the road from the Mary Tyler Moore show but creating the storyline in which a rotor got married the show busy he said that he realized too late that the heart and soul of Rhoda was her dating life in her his fortunes in her dating life and by marrying her off he helped neutralize the show a little bit I kind of disagree with that I I mean I I always like the TV show wrote a but he he felt like that that took some of the bite out of you know one of the most popular characters ever on the television but you know those are all the those are all the things that we know from what I was going through some old things you know and I did see a note that I received from Fred Silverman in two thousand and five when we first created the

"Know you see players walking through crowds on on golf carts you know you can get into tournaments frequently with very little security site you know if you go to the right gate sometimes you just. Kinda waltzed through. It's it's amazing to me. Like how flippant all that can be considering what the sport is like. Anyone who's a fan of tennis knows what happened to her. So where are we after after all this research after two hours of talking about Monica? I'm thankful for the trip down memory lane and though the learning that I did about an era of tennis that was deficient for me and be able to to situate Monica's career better and to get a better understanding of just how great and vast her contributions to the sport and not just understand the Monica that I didn't get to watch live but also better understand the Monica that I did. Yep I hope like where. We've come where I've come as like understanding players as more fully rounded human beings which is a like a constant work in progress right Martina Navratilova for example the way she's going on now about Trans Athletes and sport you're tempted to look at her and very one specific way but she is complex. She is full of contradictions. And one more thing to me. The reason the Monica cells was so charismatic in the early nineteen nineties because she had a little bit of edge. There was a little bit of toughness genus. Acqu mystery. There was like the slightest bit of meanness then made her incredibly compelling or a little bit of a a wink yes so remember to make your heroes complicated. Thank you for listening. This has been a month long project and process for us. It's been with us over the holidays. We are relieved to have the recording over to be frank. If you're still here thank you will be our longest episode ever at this point. I don't think there is enough that we could cut in the editing process to stop it from being.

"Yeah a sixteen year old. Yeah so you have this meek child this bubbly child this young woman who is interested in pop culture who giggles. God forbid she giggles. And so. There's a cutesy aspect and then there's this disconnect between that and what you see on court this ruthless killer who will take out Chris Evert in just her fifth tournament on the W T tour in Houston in one thousand nine hundred nine without any fear she did not fair anybody on court and so this disconnect between these two identities of Monica Seles and then you you accompany that with this per seved mysterious family the peculiarity of the family. Not knowing what to make of them because there were so different from what people knew right all these things working together to then create this tornado of competing media narratives that served to really make things difficult for Monica at the top as a child right so you have this. This threat of the Celtics are unusual. They're extremely private. Insular and Monica's game is Unorthodox and wild and you should fix her forehand and then at the same time we have legends of the game saying we need to be scared. Martina Navratilova was still very much a top player at the time in the late eighties and into the early nineties. Martinez said that she has the ability to quote render the women on tour extinct. She said this shortly after Steffi Graf won the Golden Slam. This is a woman who had just one five slams in a row and Martinez looking at Monaco and saying Oh. Wow this is something we haven't seen before Ted Tinling. Who became a kind of friend to Monica in the final years of his life? Who Monica admired very much. He felt that Monaco was the first real air to Suzanne. Lenglen who he knew very well. When you relate. That story of how Martinez fell that she could just wipe out the WTI tour. It's kind of at odds with Chrissy after playing her. Those first couple of times saying well you know she could be number one in about five years yet Chris. God I love. I love how their personalities come through their court styles. Chrissy is so even so tempered in the way that she plays and she thinks before she speaks right like she wasn't she's not prone to outrageous generalizations. Like Martina can be. I think a story that encapsulates what we were talking about these swirling contradictions of WHO MONICA. Seles was as a kid is her nine thousand nine hundred nine match against Zina Garrison enrolling girls. It was a controversy at the time. Xena is the top player. Monaco's this young upstart was fifteen. At the time they come on court and the bulkheads hand Monica Bouquet of roses and Monica starts handing out individual flowers to people in the crowd. This is unusual and then she turns and presents one to Zina Garrison herself and Zina refuses it and the crowd boos her while she refuses at Monica. You can see her gesturing like okay. I don't really know what to do here. And then she goes and puts them down. It seemed in that moment when Xena rebuffed her gift of a of a role that she realized that okay. This is getting away from me here right this. The third round of Roland Garros Tournament that Monaco will go on to dominate. She Beats Zina Garrison easily. You can I mean. Wash the highlights. She's got Zena on her back foot throughout the entire thing like it's it's just incredible. How a fifteen year old pushes around Zina Garrison who was clearly such a beautiful athlete and Zeno was not happy about it. They were not close. They have since reached a peace. But at the time Xena said it's a bunch of hype. She's just another baseliner. This is after. Monica wiped her off the court. Monica said I would accept a flower from her. I didn't WanNA cause any problems. I didn't know what to do with flowers. And they love flowers here and so what with Monica? Sometimes you get the feeling that you're never getting the full story which I think is true for a lot of people and you can see how maybe what Monica viewed as just a a simple off. The cuff gesture is seen as offensive and outside the the unwritten rules of the game to the other players. But what's at play here is that Monica is clearly a threat to these women yet at fifteen years old. She's a threat. And so what's an innocent thing? Something like just giving some folks. Some flowers is taken as disrespectful. It's taken as who is she. Who does she think she is? This is not the time or the place. We don't like her right. And so instead of say for example if if Cocoa Gotha done that at Wimbledon last year like Oh my God. That's so cute. Her naivete her Nunez. She's unblemished by the darkness of Professional Sports. It's so refreshing. There was none of that right. It's there's this villain coming up end everything that we know about ten right and keep in mind that the two darlings of women's tennis to women who had carried the tour for the last fifteen years and participated in one of the most storied and greatest rivalries in the history of all sport. Martina Navratilova and Chris. They were still playing. Where was Monica? Seles GONNA fit into this Khorasan. Martina were still hanging on. Steffi Graf was fully entrenched as the world number-one and. Here's this fifteen year old handing out roses in the third round of the French. Open like what's going on. I think you can definitely see that. There was a lot of resistance to Monica. Seles getting to the throne of women's Tennis Bright. So this rolling gross in. Nineteen eighty-nine was her debut at a Grand Slam tournament. She reaches the semifinals and loses to Steffi Graf. She came into the tournament eight and one on the year and her debut on the WTO tour was auspicious. She won the Virginia Slims of Houston. Against Chris. Evert before wrong arrows that year. You don't see sort of record very often in tennis. She did not lose in a first round in any tournament until nineteen ninety till she had been on the tour not full-time but about two a story. I like that Paints Monica in a different light is playing Chris. Evert in Chris Evert's final. Us Open in one thousand nine hundred nine. They met in the round of sixteen now. Monica ahead already had a win over Congress and a loss and she writes in her autobiography. The first one that she did not want to be the teenager. Who Kicked Chris? Evert out of tennis. Then I get that. Evert beets are easily and as they're leaving the court. The crowd is going crazy. Obviously and Monaco raises her hand to wave at the crowd realizes quickly that they're not cheering for her and sort of brushes her hand through her hair to recover. And it's so sweet. It's actually a really cute moment because she recovers so fast it's like oh no never mind. As Monica progresses into being world number one and the dominant force that she is on the WTO tour between nine thousand nine hundred and nine hundred ninety. Three one of the things that's talked about a lot. Is Her relationship with Nick. Bollettieri her stay at the academy. How much that influenza her growth? How much that played a role in her becoming the player that she was as opposed to the influence of father? And the other thing that Bala Terry is linked to sell us here with is this grunting business because folks have often made the point that so many of the prominent grunter 's tennis throughout history have come from the military academy cannot be a coincidence. Right Right Bala Terry. At the time in the mid eighty s was not did not have the profile that he has today. Andre AGASSI AND MONICA. Seles went a long way in creating voluntary as as this legendary tennis. Figure I've seen the voluntary academy called a globe which has just wild. I don't know if reporter could get away with using gulag that flippantly now but it was an authoritarian regime military. The schedule is very rigid. Monica was unhappy as a small kid. Thirteen years old. Herman Herranz more there yet. She didn't speak English very well. She would start her day at six in the morning hitting for hours having to go to school then go hit again. This was this was like boot camp seven days a week for thirteen year old. It's a tough life. It's not easy budgetary said. The work was never ever Monica's problem that she was extremely hardworking when her parents did arrive. This is where things get a little complicated ballot. Terry puts them up in apartment in Bradenton. Monaco's going to the Bradenton Academy. She's a scholarship student. So a lot of these rich kids are sort of subsidizing the scholarship students. And it's weird the way that he talks about her. In retrospect there is a falling out. It's weird the way she talks of Indian winters so I the truth is in the middle so in March nineteen ninety. We're at a point where it's becoming clear that Monica is going to be a superstar. There is no walking back from this. She is prodigious she starting to win tournaments her ranking is going up and the Bala Terry Selous Partnership Dissolves immediately and nobody knows why the official story that I've heard reported in sports illustrated is that the seller says were mad. That voluntary was spending too much time with other students in Monaco's first autobiography. She's nearly silent about it. She said Nick loves to communicate through letters he wrote us a letter and basically kicked us out of the Kademi period. And that was it. She didn't hot provide any context at all but then Bolletteri offers his own version of what happened in his book and it's clear that he goes to great detail to give you detail that cannot be refuted right. He wants you to know. This is what happened right. He said PAPA. Selous was not a tolerant man. He said he was paranoid. He was private. He demanded that tarps. Be ERECTED AROUND. Monaco's practice courts. He had allegedly extensive demands. He said the Sella's were by far the most demanding family he had ever worked with so in March of nineteen ninety according to military cutoff gives him a list of eight eighteen question. This is so specific. Eighteen questions for nick to answer and he needs her sounds immediately or else they can no longer work together. Bolletteri also tells the story. That polus wanted this rope installed in one of the indoor facilities so that Monica could hang from it parallel to the ground to build. Her Core Strangler Serena data with like the aerial or and Nick says it cost. How many thousand dollars to get installed and that Monica never used it and so it's still there it's still there and so he wants you to know that there were all these demands constantly made that he filled that weren't always needed and then eventually just left him high and dry. That's a long sort of right right. He says that they left him. High and dry and they say something different bright. Well we do know because Monica said this is well that they worked without a contract for years and this is when the relationship broke down as when Bolletteri pressed them to put something in writing to formalize the relationship cuddly did not respond allegedly and Nick said. We can't work together anymore. If you're not gonNA commit and so reading both accounts. They're both unsatisfactory. You know you know the truth is somewhere out there. We don't know who's closer to the truth. All we know is that voluntary and sell us did reconcile later on and they. They seem to be in a good place. Monica thanked him at her hall of fame ceremony. They've come a long way because in the nineties the Celis family line was that nick was never really her coach. He didn't really contribute much to her game. And it was just convenient. Meanwhile you have this fifteen sixteen year old girl who is at the center of all of this center of this controversy this drama with budgetary. That's playing out in public. She's about to become the biggest tennis star in the world and she's being made to answer for decisions of her father really adopt point and so in one thousand nine hundred ninety. It's a it's a fascinating time in women's tennis because Monica is clearly the apparent to a still very young Steffi Graf. How does it feel about that? But Not Great Bob at the same time in one thousand nine hundred ninety. Jennifer caprio is the one who is captivating the tennis world. And it's Capri Atti who is dominating the headlines allowing cells to somehow kind of develop under the radar under kind of a diminished spotlight dominating headlines in the United States at least correct which was in many ways the epicenter of a lot of tennis especially hard court tennis. And it's where many of these women trained the L. A. Times in one thousand nine hundred said that Cup Riady. Sella's is quote the rivalry of the future other papers cite the massive star power of both players and open emotion of Caprio Chancellor's comprehensive being the relatable American girl and sell us the Garbo esque charismatic. Nagimov Garbo is something that you see quite a lot. What do they mean by that? Garbo? Greta Garbo the Great Movie Star of the Thirties was reclusive mysterious. She had this error this enigmatic presence about her she was fascinating because of what she hid from you and Monica in many ways embodied that and played it up knowingly she would for for different reasons would appear in public in disguises and wigs and and there were some theatrical moments in Monica's early career which will see in a little while but there was something undeniably electric about Sella's Kariuki. I wanted you to talk about a Garbo esque aspect there because I wanted to situate that in one thousand nine hundred at the start of her career. Because that's going to loom large when cells off the tour after the stabbing indeed. Yes because the media has created this narrative surrounding Monica Seles. This mysterious unknowable person. Who is deliberately keeping information about herself and her game from the media right. She's playing this coy tit. For Tat Business Right and they then become very sinister. They being the media in Ho they. They use that to speak awful things about Monica while she is recovering from her stabbing in one thousand nine hundred three. Yeah Yeah where are we on the tennis court in Early Nineteen Ninety? Monica is putting together a historic season. She wins six straight tournaments starting with key Biscayne. Which of course we now know. As Miami San Antonio Tampa the Italian open in Rome Berlin where she beat Steffi Graf for the first time and her first Grand Slam title Enrolling Girls. Six tournaments in a row. Then she wins. Virginia slims of La. Virginia Slims California and for the Virginia Slims Championships which we can now like into The year end championships. The W. T. Finals and there were so many firsts Sony records set in nineteen ninety in those early years. She was the youngest in the Open era to win a major singles title..

"Hello everybody. Welcome back to the body serve. I'm Jonathan and I'm James. This is a special presentation especial. Tbs Presentation yes. So we're kind of in between seasons right now in between seasons five and six. The Twenty Twenty Tennessee's has officially started with the Cup but we want to present at a totally different out of time experience. So is this part of season. Five or season. Six doesn't matter what it is. A part of our ongoing series of standalone episodes. We've previously done a partial history of lgbt folks in tennis. We've also done a historical episode where we looked at what tennis was like in the pre-open Arrow leading into the open era. That all was about man if I did a terrible job describing that but you can go back and look into the archives got to work on the elevator pitch. This episode is about the great legendary Monica Seles and rather than being a biography. This is more of a look at how she has been talked about throughout her career. It's a critique. It's a look at how people wrote about her when she was a child when she was a dominant superstar after her stabbing and just kind of a reflection on this unique career. Something that we have never seen in tennis and won't see again. There's so much to unpack with Monica Seles and for the purposes of this episode. We're going to be looking at her career through what we think are four distinct eras of her career and her life in general the first Arab being between nineteen eighty eight and one thousand nine hundred ninety Monica as prodigy and a peculiarity. For much of the tennis world the media the second one being her era of dominance that was accompanied by a fair bit of drama. Some of it of her doing a lot of it having to do with how the press was wild in the way it covered her not knowing what to do or say about Monica Seles the third being the way she was covered during her two and a half year period away from the tour after she was stabbed in Hamburg in nineteen ninety-three and then the fourth era being what we think of Monica Seles. Now since her comeback from nineteen ninety-five starting with the exhibition against Martina Navratilova. Heading into the Rogers Cup and then making the final at the US Open into retirement. And so the crux of this whole thing is how can we use the way in which? Monica was written about and talked about to get a better idea of who she was as a prodigy. Her career at large. And what can we then learn from that and make inferences across other errors in generations subsequent to her career in tennis? Like I said before. This is not a comprehensive biography. Some of YOU LISTENING ARE MONICA. Seles experts and could probably school us. Some of you may know very little about her career. This episode will kind of give you the highlights. Some interesting stories but in a broader sense. A we're interested in the evolution of sports media in the way players were talked about then versus now. I'm particularly interested in PC culture and sort of this era of quote unquote. Whoa KNESS and how how we talk about players now differently especially now that social media is so dominant in tennis and in all sports. It's important for me to remember. You know this is a critique of how Monica Seles was created in the public eye. And what we are doing on this podcast is also contributing to the discourse. I WANNA be careful to not arrive. At in essence of Monica Seles like trying to fully understand who she is. Because we don't know her. People are unknowable. People are full of contradictions. And that's what I want to keep in mind through this whole process. What we're looking at is how how Monica Seles as a figure was constructed through these different eras rather than who she really is and looking back at these specific moments in time and the way she was covered to get an idea. A better idea of what it was like to be her at those specific times. Rather than letting you know who she was right. Why would you WanNa do this episode? This was your idea and I I have really become very excited about it but at first. I was struggling to find like where. Where's the episode? So what brought you to it? I'm just a genius James. What can I say? I'VE BEEN FASCINATED BY MONICA. Seles for as long as I've been interested in tennis as those of you who listen to the show may no I? I started watching tennis in one thousand nine hundred four and that was during Monica's absence so for the first year and a half of my tennis. Fandom Monaco is kind of an abstract figure for me somebody that I had to learn about and take clues here and there to try and figure out who she was and then when she came back in effect she wasn't who she was before so. I never really got the full sense of what that Monica was. I still loved watching Monica play and I phoned the rest of her career. Infinitely fascinating. But this was a way for me to go back and fill in the blanks a lot for me and my own personal tennis history and based in our personal interests in how we talk about tennis on the show it felt like a a seamless fit to go this route in terms of situating her career through media narratives and then being able to extrapolate outwards right. Okay so we have given you the abstract and now we should get into the meat of the episode. The meat of the episode being these four distinct eras right right starting with Monica as a what would she been then a thirteen year old a fourteen year old in one thousand nine hundred eight at this point a burgeoning prodigy on the W T tour. She was training at the Nick Bollettieri Academy and she was just a year away from really making a huge mark in tennis. As she was born in Novi Sad Yugoslavia which is now part of Serbia. Her family is Hungarian. They are native Hungarian speakers and Monica was. I noticed because she was winning European tournaments. She won the under Twelve Orange Bowl. And that's when she first caught the eye of nick voluntary so he offered to give her kind of a trial period at the academy. She goes to Florida. She decides to stay with her brother. Zoltan also a top junior player for quite a while after a while her parents come and join her and it becomes clear that Monica is a special pupil of Nick Bollettieri. She's hitting with Andre Agassi. Jim Courier David Wheaton. Who AT THE TIME? Are these clearly future stars. Jim and Andrea obviously fulfilled that. Promise like crazy. She's training at the academy but she's not playing matches. People don't really know who she is. She finally still as an amateur makes her first foray onto the W T tour in one thousand nine hundred eight in her first tournament. She wins her first match in Boca. Raton gets Chris Evert in the second round and loses. And you know folks are like. Oh this is who is. She's got great talent. This is this is definitely somebody to watch little. Did they know that in less than a year she would be making the semi finals of Roland? Garros and then finishing nineteen eighty-nine as the world number six player as a fifteen year old when she first came around a lot of the coverage is about her unorthodox game you know two hands on both sides her grunts which were called Gauche at journalists and commentators took every opportunity to make a creative jabs at the grunts. It seems quaint now because of watching her matches it. Sounds like okay? That's just like a regular grunt? It's unique to her. Obviously you know her without seeing her. At the time it was considered a a little wild. But also at the time you had a not dissimilar to what we've seen in or time covering tennis this what can only be described as sexist double standard whereby Jimmy Connors and under Agassi. Were out here grunting. Up a storm would they weren't getting nearly the press inc as a fifteen year old. Monica Seles was with respect to the sprinting right. And we've seen that in recent years as well. The likes of Nadal has one of the most pronounced grunts that you can imagine antennas as do any number of other men. But we only hear about it because folks dwell and harp on the alleged high-pitched nature of women's grunting. There are a few threads in the early coverage of Sella's there's the the grunts the sort of eccentric nature of her and her family and her game which goes along with the sort of almost mysterious eastern nece about them because they were still behind the Iron Curtain. At that time nobody really understood Yugoslavia and the ethnic and civil tensions going on there and at the same time. There was marveling at what she could do. WanNa tennis court. There was a definite ordering of Monica Seles in the early parts of her. Our the the Celis family was seen as such a curiosity. You have her father. Who's a cartoonist? Who was a triple jumper? Her mother is a computer programmer. Her brother travels with her. The Dog Astro. You always hear about Astro. Who's named after the jetsons? This whole they were really kind of a low-key family but they were covered as if they are this travelling circus. This entourage. That American Western media doesn't really know what to do with or talk about. There's a definite similarities between cells his father and Richard Williams. Yes because it's almost as if tennis media knows what to do with the abusive father who is absolutely no good for their child's career ride. That's been covered. They know what to do with that. But when you have a tennis parent who is not playing the game as you want them to play but still maintaining the best interest of their pupil and child that becomes weird. People don't know what to do with the at Richard is much more of a self promoter. I think or a promoter of his girls than Cohen was but they both seem to love and have the best interests of their children at heart. Richard was a lot more flamboyant. You hear the same story is repeated of course setting up nets in parking lot because there were so few tennis courts in Novi Saad and the private courts were extremely expensive and couldn't get court time even after. She showed her incredible gifts as a player. The Tom and Jerry illustrations on tennis balls which is seen as sort of cutesy but Monica points out that they missed the point that she was playing the cat who was attacking the mouse. And you're telling the stories of people know what it is okay. In order to maintain Monica's interest as a very young child playing tennis. Her father the cartoonist drool her favorite cartoon. Jerry the mouse on the tennis balls and told Monica that you are Tom. You need to go and get all of the. Jerry's essential right so it's cute but this is also a young girl who lined up her dolls on the court so she could whack them with tennis balls. There is a ferocity about Monica Seles from a young age that you can see throughout her career and the way that her game is built. The the game is so aggressive. Well this goes back to how folks didn't know what to make of her. You have this meek child right. She's a child when she burst onto the stage she's a child when she's the dominant world number one as well..

Darina Allens food philosophy

"We start today spoke with Irish chef author and broadcaster Darin Allen who has for over three decades being tempting curious food folk would be shifts from around the world to East Cork. That's where she runs the world famous. Bali mellow cookery school. After twenty or so cookbooks and countless Seles. TV shows Allen has become the face and the voice of a coronary revolution in Ireland. And now she has released yet another cookbook call to one. report feeds or Marcus. Joyce finished meant during Allen to talk about the book but before that they discussed dreariness food philosophy and into why rice cooking and farming practices. Really do matter. Not Enough has changed in that direction because really the message not even subliminal message nowadays is is that the skills that are really important are the academic skills and that the practical skills are of much less importance and this is a big mistake. My goodness sweep Latin now. Two generations at least out of our houses and our schools without equipping them with the basic life skills to feed themselves properly or feeding right into the hands of the multinational food companies. We've handed over complete control over the most important thing in our lives really are food to the supermarkets and it's not their responsibility. Our health is not their responsibility so basically I feel really failing in our duty of care to our children and the next generation by not equipping helping them with the basic practical skills to make a little meal for themselves own. I could really do was actually scrambled eggs or whatever you know With a basic skill. I've had a really interesting life. I now have what I absolutely love. It's actually a privilege to be able to pass on cooking. King skills to the next generation could be teaching algebra geometry or something and of course it's hugely important but you can't flip and Matt's Book and the Look on somebody's face when you teach them how to make a loaf of bread or a super it actually touches their lives at something they're going to use every day so I feel fortunate that I've found something that I totally love doing and feel like jumping out of bed still every day at seventy one years of age. Don't jump on quite desert fossil. Awesome US two years ago but still if we flash forward I mean people wouldn't have to look far to see the success. All of the amazing graduates have come through the school. All of the things that you've you've taught them not to mention as you said your TV shows your books sold in the hundreds of thousands of copies. But I had the good fortune two years ago. I believe to come to Bali demanded to a story for Monocle magazine. And you told me something curious. I'd like to ask you about the first recipe. Teach students is a recipe for soil. And in your clothes. It's actually the recipe. I give them as how to make compost scams where you're very very close. So basically the school operates a whole year round but we do three-month dream on certificate courses on the first day. The first one the first thing I do is I introduce them to the gardeners in the far manager. And maybe I'll have a bunch of carrots or something and I say to them. Look at these lovely carrots. It took I lean three months to grow these carrots three months and don't you dare boilers them. And you get them into the kitchen and then we go out into the fruit garden and Eileen will have a wheelbarrow full of soil there. Actually its humus in fact and they stand around me and a big semicircle in a wondering doing what's coming down the line the feeling a little awkward and I just run my hands to the soil and I say to them remember. This is where it all starts in the good earth in the soil and and looking at me and thinking. Oh my God do myself say. They've visited brochure. thinking some aged hippie on a mission or something but I have to shock them out of thinking that food is just something that comes wrapped in plastic offer supermarket shelf. I need them to think about how it's produced where it comes. I think about the feed for the animals. The breed the the variety such a such a toll. The better if I can find futile worms in this wheelbarrow full of soil. But then it's even more interesting for me. I think because wash is in that wheelbarrow has come from the compost heap and it's now at the final stages of compost which is called Humus when life comes back into it and actually has been made from the scraps from the morning's cooking that have gone onto the compost. It's broken down and in life has come back into it and that is what we feed the soil with. I mean if I come back another time I want to be a soil scientist. 'cause the so much going on because our health everything comes in the soil bill but then one of the many wonderful quote some lady eve how far and say to them remember the health of the soil. The health of the plant health at the animal and the health of the human are all one and indivisible so we're totally dependent on that four or five inches of soil around the world for our very existence. Farmers are really worried about the diminishing fragility of the soil. Because we've racked the soil by very intensive monoculture over the years and we can't go on with businesses usual. We simply have to go back and I mean as a farmer I feel a strong responsibility that whatever I grow you and we have we sell a little of our excess produce Mardell farm shop on the farm farmers markets and. I just feel strong responsibility that I can look somebody straight in the. I know that that food is going to nourish them rather than make them ill. which is what's happening with lots of food nowadays and during the you've been proved right over time I mean these are opinions slowly working their way into the mass media their opinions that people are slowly beginning to agree with? You have held this idea for a long time. How hard is it meant to convince people to even get to this point into the debate where people countenanced the health of the soil? There's a lot of chat about the fertility of the soil. Now because I think people really beginning and not just beginning but realized the connection connection between fertile soil and good health also. There's been enormous amount of work done on the link between the health of our gut bio and both are mental and physical health. And that's when you think of it. It's like so obvious at the school where very lucky we have a little dairy herds so we also have role milk for people if they want to drinker but we notice this is sort of anecdotal. Because I've watched this over thirty years the difference in people's energy level and they're scared and so on when they're with us for three months but now this is all scientifically proven and also the other interesting thing that's happening actually is for the last five six seven courses this is. We've had at least one doctor. Sometimes to an on this course of the moment we have three doctors on the twelve week certificate cooking course these doctors who come they all come for the same reason they tell me that basically they feel because medical training. There's no training in nutrition even still although a lot of the young doctors. There's a now demanding that they're given the proper information so they can answer their patients queries properly and so many of the patients presenting hunting with conditions. That can be at least hot. An often cured by a change of Diet for one of the problems is. Where'd you get this nutrient dense food? I mean a lot. The people don't have time to buy directly from farmers but there are other ways of excel tarnish of routes to market retell routes to market developing over here. You have formed drop and we we have neighbor food and onto you can buy on nine. And then the farmers get eighty percent of the price which is fantastic has so many farmers not being paid enough any longer to produce nourishing wholesome food which is a real problem. And that's as opposed to us was between twenty five and thirty percent of the retail price. If it's going through a supermarket so that's important portent and also I'm encouraging people to try to grow something themselves again and as you mentioned you're concerned about the quality of food that people have access has to and maybe also sometimes I guess the quality of food that people were reached for when they could reach for something else which are believed to be some of the inspiration behind rather fetching new book work in front of me number. Nineteen number nine teams needs another during having good but I I think this one says one feeds all one hundred it new recipes. Tell us about the inspiration for after you've done. Eighteen books hackles up. The ALITA writes her. Another one. Why it took me to write this book? Actually because it's been bubbling away in my subconscious for years. Because we've been I suppose is about five or six years. Now we've been doing a course called one wonders it's a bit of a cheesy name for recourse but it's almost full and of course one can see year after year that everybody's becoming more and more frenetically busy and sort of for an fact have dedicated this book to all the heroic young couples who are trying to keep all the balls in the air and that's for many people. The reality now is so dashing home from work in the UK. Okay here in Ireland to terrible traffic off the time dashing into the supermarkets picking up the kids in the crash trying to get a few ingredients and then coming home exhausted and and really wanting to be able to cook a big part of something or make something that you know will nourish the family and we'll be delicious and wholesome and good and comforting after that long day and it's just time it's almost impossible to keep all the balls in the air and so. I hope that this book will provide a little bit of the solution for so many of the busy people to the title says Israeli. Because it's one part feeds also one pass one low sinton baking tray or one trae Bake I. I hate that word trade bait but there's so many good things loved it desserts. You can do it as well so this book was written for that reason and it's getting a fantastic response. Actually I think it's really touching a nerve with a lot of people in so many people say that's exactly what I wanted. It's exactly what I've been waiting for so I. I'm quite proud of it in many ways because I kept putting the recipes and saying I think left without an they'd love that they'd love letter left out and actually does apart from of course fishing means on there's also lots of vegetarian -tarian dishes and lots of accidentally Vegan things to and during last question for you but number nineteen thirty six years of running the cookery school. What was the one talk tip that you've learned over that time? It can be a technique for boiling an egg could be owning a mandolin. Was the one bit of advice I can ask you. That you think is made life a little bit easier in otherwise hectic schedule. Oh my goodness I think. Sit Down after your days work. Sit Down and enjoy. Enjoy something at the kitchen table. Whether it's just a simple boiled egg little scrambled eggs or nomination it loss of wine but sit down and enjoy us and let the cares on the worries of the days. Slip away as you enjoy a little special moment at the kitchen table during their and her new book one pot feeds all all is out now

Milo Ventimiglia talks his new film 'The Art of Racing in the Rain'

"This. This is popcorn where we tell you what's happening at the movies and there's a movie out right now that it's gonna make you can make you cry. It's going to make you laugh and it's called the art of racing in the rain. I mean it starts my guest milo ventimiglia welcome to the show happy to be here. Thank you and what you've done. Montmelo is broken. All the rules that actors are always told never to you. Don't work with animals with kids here you are and there i am happily and you just said i don't care what you say. You know. This is what made you are. You just yourself a major dog on <hes>. I mean for me. This wasn't a role that i was afraid of. It felt like something that i slash we as an audience needed. It's a human story. It's a story about a good father story about a good husband sure about a lovely family that is teaching their dog enzo the life lessons in needs to imprint it so that when he becomes a human in his next life. He'll be ready to be a good person he does want to be. He doesn't want so badly so badly what he wants wants curses himself for being dog and moments when his instinct is giving him insight to what this family is going through but he can't speak it. He can't say he just sit back and let things happen. So you have a dog yourself. No no no even like them. Love dogs okay. You said that i think we'd have to end the bucket out. The door wouldn't even give you the pop. That's maybe one of my way. Also this dog ends named after into dr a sound suspiciously like kevin costner very much so i won't even say might be kevin costner. He was here a couple weeks ago. I'm still hearing would what a what a lovely lovely coast or that. I never got to work with so you're not hearing on the set while you're doing this. What we're hearing in the audience know much like you. You know one is hearing with the dogs actually thinking there's no talking dogs in this. It's it's all the inner monologue of this dog as he's talking to himself telling the story story to himself of this family of this man but yeah no. I didn't hear anything i kind of our script supervisor and our our director simon curtis they would talk amongst themselves they would she would read <hes> enso's dialogue and simon. I'm kind of pause me and okay now. Hold on please and then i'll just be interacting with the dog you know and then he'd say okay and action and then i resume my lines or dialogue log on to where we needed to anything so i wasn't actually here in any kind of voice. Your thoughts are what what are the perils and the joys of working with a dog as the scene partner. You have to basic. I mean one. They're gonna steal the scene from me because i mean they're hand sorry. They're beautiful. They're there there you know you've been called all those things but still yeah they do with their with their with their tongues out in the tail's wagging you haven't tried that one yet avenue but because their animals you know you have to respect that their animals and take time and be patient with what they need to learn what they need to do. Repetitive over and over and over again not distract them feel like people can be distracted but yet we can handle a lot on our plate at any given time animals it was task at hand walked them there to their pick up some popcorn or lay down whatever it is is hold the remote and its mouth so it was a discipline of patients to just make sure that myself trainers were communicating and that i was given the dogs but they needed an intern. Instinctually they gave me what i needed which was a scene partner and that that was what was so special about our two dogs about parker and butler was what they were doing. Instinctually who they were was remarkable but i would also i would talk to the dogs like people like just you know not really full voiced that uncertain moments i'd have to crouch down and whispering to parker's ear hotel what was would say hey. We're gonna do this scene. I'm going to be a little stress but i love you. Kid don't worry we're fine. Don't tell me don't let yourself yourself. Get agitated. Just just stick with me at the end of it. I got a nice chicken. Treat for you yeah well. What made you not a dog owner sanjay. I want to do this movie. It was beautiful human story. You know what i saw. Again was a good man. <hes> living a life that was in many points of it difficult challenges obstacles real life stuff that was just constantly constantly hanging on him and i saw his heart and his determination to get through all that and do it for those that he loved. I loved. I loved the message behind that caring for the people that you really love and that fills you up well who can argue with that it also who oh can't relate to that. That's the thing that i also loved about. This felt like an extension of my t._v. Show this is us felt like something that everybody can draw raw from. Everybody can connect danny. Everybody can connect to eve everyone can connect to to <hes> enso's point of view. It just felt very relative. Tive who had you played that we can connected to who was the rat bastard in your career played a couple aw played one <hes> in a movie called wildcard. Jason statham the son of a mob boss who got away with the worst behavior. <hes> <hes> played <hes> the villain at the end of the second season of gotham t._v. Show he was a <hes>. He was a killer <hes> and play some pretty dark guys. Is that enjoyable to you too. I think everyone that i play short of that. That movie wildcard enjoyed that guy. I just really didn't like i didn't like putting on the character just didn't like any of it but for me it's they're all different sizes of humanity and i always feel like there's something to learn and and something to display people whether you're inspired to be good or showcasing that we really can't be this inhumane well sometimes by showing showing that in humanity you're you're also revealing something about sure us in the audience about what we don't wanna be exactly which is a good thing to it's one of the great things about being an actor does is that you can have that yeah and speaking about good at what you do. Congratulations third emmy nominations to the <hes>. This is us and season four coming in yeah. I'm already two episodes in just tell us what happened in the first to the next sixteen all of them yeah oh man should know so. Can you actually tell us how thing no i mean. I could say it's going to be great. I know really right in line with everything that this is us has done from seasons one to two to three the formula hasn't changed <hes> <hes> the pearson family feels like we're getting even deeper and deeper and deeper into who this family is who these people are as individuals in it you you know <hes> it's really just it's a joy to work on. I've had i've had a really amazing couple years going from that. Show this film and yeah. I'm <hes> i'm really lucky. It's fascinating to me because i remember also seeing you in rocky balboa woah yeah we're still alone is your father and that he has those speeches where he's basically you. You know talking about fatherhood what it is doing but then win season to this is oh yes like came. Flight comes on doing a scene with kevin yeah in a movie that he's doing talking about you. Who's gon who's his sons but also his his is his <hes>. He was his <hes> his hero. Yeah i mean i what i have had the first conversation with sly about joining the show and i pretty much told must i explained his part of it. You know inspiring a younger actor and his how he was my character. Jack's biggest onscreen hero and i basically told him i said all of that couldn't be closer to the truth as a younger actor i note it was like to be on set with you and dan to to just watch listen and learn what he was up to and what he was able to accomplish and i applied that to my everyday working process as an actor but then also from the character's point of view like he was my onscreen here on mike well yes lie was my onscreen hero to you know so. I don't know maybe a lot of flattery got him but also i mean you know his involvement with our writers and writing collect like coming together to share his his voice and what he wanted to tell of being playing himself. I don't know that he's ever played himself in the show but it was yeah you got a good day. You had a good time. He told me he goes a really good day so really good data good data. Yeah well the the two of you have. There's some similarities. People people think that i'm actually his son. Yeah yeah sure just go yet to do it well. You always say that you have this crooked matt do so where does that come from. Just i was born that way. I don't know where it comes from or what what got broken on the way way out but <hes> but it's definitely crooked i used to i used to talk out of the side of my face like this audience and i really didn't realize it until i was thinking might have been a teenager and i saw a local news channel interview or something and i was really struck by how crooked my mouth was when i spoke and so i remember sitting down in front of a mirror and reading reading and trying to catch what words made my mouth very very crooked and in doing that i figured out how i could kind of level it out a a little bit and it gave me kind of lazy speech pattern so now people don't quite know where <hes> from because of my lazy speech pattern because i'm trying to correct my crooked mouth but i don't know it works it is it's all kind of working. I think so i mean but did did it. Intimidate you when you were starting out doing. I said you have like moments.

I'm sorry i'm like no you're not and then i did the thing and i didn't get the part but it was like that was me that was me.
