"And to treat them like family, that was something that marked the church in the apostolic age and was a key to their growth. They honestly desired to have fellowship with these people in Christ. They desired to introduce them to the savior who had adopted them into their family. And make them members of their family as well. So I want to look at two of the people who Paul mentioned in these verses in first Corinthians 16. One of them, obviously, is Stefan's stefanos and his household. We should take a look at. And then I want to look at Priscilla and Aquila. Priscilla and Aquila first, let's talk about this fellow stephanus. He said, you know the household of stephanos that they were the first fruits of a kaya. What does he mean by the first fruits of a kayak? Well, the household of stiffness, definite in his household were some of the first people who were converted when he came into Greece. Paul knows that the Corinthians are fully acquainted with the household of stefanos. He was a key central figure within their congregations. Now, Paul had already mentioned stefanos earlier on in this letter and his household in the beginning of the letter, saying that knit stefanis was one of the few people that he had actually baptized. He had baptized him and all who belonged to his family incidentally here, we see a household baptism, something that was regular in the church, not just individuals who had made their own profession, but father's mothers, their children, and then the household being brought in. Paul called stephanos and his household, as I said, the first fruits. And that comes from the Old Testament term used for the first years of grain that were reaped as and they were given as a gift to God. Thanks offering for what he had done for them. And when Paul uses it, he says, in essence, Christ has reaped these as the first fruits of the harvest, and he brought in a bountiful harvest after that. For Paul, the household of stefanis in Corinth where the mark of the beginning of Christ's work in that particular location, the first fruits of these missions to the gentiles, the spreading of the gospel beyond the balance, even of samaria, a people who were semi Jewish, who knew the Old Testament scriptures to a certain degree, now going out to Europe to places that were truly strange to Jews. And truly there was nobody stranger to a Jew than the gentiles. They were people who were essentially cut off. There was a wall of separation between them, ceremonially, and that wall had been brought down. But it was still very difficult, obviously, to move from one culture to another. It's very difficult to, to integrate wildly differing customs, cultures, languages, acts, and so on. One of the things that I really enjoyed, I love accents. They're one of my favorites. And I always try to. And it's terribly politically incorrect. Gradually master the accents of the people that I'm with. But I found out in preaching in Africa when I went over with, for instance, Africans, when they speak English, are incredibly careful to enunciate every word they speak. It comes out very clearly. And so I realized that when I the way that I speak, having been raised first in England, then in the northeastern United States, I string everything together very quickly and they're looking at me like I don't understand what you're saying. Because all of the words are just bunched up together from their point of view.

"Kim, today is the 2nd of July and we are here to catch up on round three at Wimbledon at tennis weekly headquarters. We are coming off the back of a really heated, spicy encounter Nick curios versus stefanos sisa pass on court one. Everyone was looking forward to this match. I mean, maybe 99% of people were looking forward to this match going into it. And it has delivered drama Nick kyrgios getting a win, Nick curios getting frustrated, asking for a default. There was issues around the towel management even from surpass. This match had it all and I'm amazed that Nick curios, despite all of the chanting, all of the things that could have distracted him, he still came out with the victory. Yeah, considering he was sort of having a constant running dialog. Trying to get his opponent defaulted and just, you know, having a go at everyone left right and center to come through in four sets and play decent tennis to get it done in that 9 7 in that fourth set tiebreak and to avoid going to a 5th set. Tennis wise, you know, very good, like he did well to come through that much, you know, he beat sits past recently in hala. So had a recent win over him. So this was always going to be a close encounter. We knew there was going to be some aggro, but I don't think we well, it hasn't, yeah, it hasn't disappointed us in terms of the aggro that we're getting in all the press conferences now after the match finished about an hour and a half, two hours ago. All these comments being made. But I guess it kind of started at the end of the second set when it's past drop the set, hit a ball away in frustration, the ball went into the crowd. And curios argument was that was a definite default incident because 6 pass hit a ball deliberately into the crowd. So he was asking the supervisor to default his class. Asking his putting it nicely, he was demanding. He was so he was demanding. He was commanding, yeah, he was like, bring out all the referees onto the court, you're not good enough. Yeah, it was, he was really adamant that that match had finished in his eyes and he was so fixated on it and obviously it didn't happen at the time, but he was so fixated on that outcome. I think a lot of us just thought this is going to be the end of him in this match in terms of not being able to concentrate, keep it together. He's got this thing in his head. He's not going to let it go. He's going to tank the third set. But that didn't happen. And I think for me, that was like the most surprising thing was that all of this, as you said, all of this sort of monologuing going on during the matches commentary that he was having with himself, you know, with the umpire with Sisyphus and also with the crowd as well. He was still able to kind of keep focus and play really, really gripping tennis. I mean, we do need to talk about this situation because they are, I feel like becoming more and more frequent on the tour and we are getting more and more of these debates on, oh, should this player get defaulted? And curios eyes, he was instantly thought that sister bas had hit the ball into the crowd and I think he thought it had hit someone and when it hit someone 100% of the time, that is going to end in a default. Now, sister pass called a warning, did not get the you did not get the default that Nick kyrgios so, so keenly craze, but you know, you were in the grounds at the time. I mean, what was your view on it? Was there any sort of hush hush in the crowds? Well, I wasn't at that match. I was on center court, so we only saw the live score board coming up. We didn't know what was going on apart from, you know, people on WhatsApp telling us. So I've watched it back briefly. Hitting the ball out into the crowd, but I think I need to see it from more angles because it's sort of I haven't the clip I saw it wasn't really obvious that it was like a really angry hit. I mean, perhaps curiosity assumed it had to hit someone in which case I can understand why you'd be like, hey, that should be a default. But it didn't hit anyone. And the rule at the moment is that it has to hit someone, I think, for the person to be default. Now, I think they're definitely needs to be a clarity surrounding those rules because it can still cause it's not a great look, obviously, to have someone deliberately hit a ball into the crowd. And there's the potential to cause harm. And I think they do need to clamp down and be much stricter and kind of, I guess, expand those rules out. But maybe in the heat at the moment curiosity, maybe they should have shown him footage or something to be like, no, look, it didn't hit anyone. To calm it down. I agree. I think there should be some sort of video referral. It happens so quickly, especially at the end of the set, lots of things going on, you know, the umpire is probably focused on talking about who won the second set into the microphone. So I do think having a video replay could have helped bring light to the situation. I mean, I've watched, I've watched the clip, I watched the clip live. I've watched it back. My personal feeling is that for once, I am on Nick curios side, I do think that stephanos is about should have got defaulted for what he did. I don't think that was a ball like looped up in the air and went into the crowd. It was quite a flat hit. You know, he was frustrated and angry and I personally don't really care if it hit someone or it didn't. I don't think that should matter. You're endangering fans who've paid lots of money to be there and they should feel safe in their seat watching watching a tennis match. And as a result of that, I just think that sisa pass, yes, with the current ruling, maybe got in my view very, very lucky in terms of the fact that it looked like it went between two in between two spectators heads and hit a back wall, but I just think in the future we shouldn't have fans worried when they go on the court, whether they're going to be there's going to be a ball flying towards them and causing them some sort of damage or injury. So I think that they do need to look at it in terms of it doesn't matter if it hits someone or not. If you endanger someone around the court with a show of aggression, it wasn't accidental like the hit the frame of your racket, then I think it does need to it should warrant something like a default or certainly a very strong sanction. Well, I mean, as the rules stand at the moment, it's not a default, so it didn't hit anyone, but like yeah, they need to increase the rule book basically make them more severe and get it. It's not as black as I just don't think it's as black and white as oh, it didn't hit someone. So it's all fine. Well, no, and I guess it's like the intent as well of the hit, you know, is it a really angry hit, or is it just sort of like, oh, I was actually putting the ball to the back of the court to the ball kid. And I went really wrong or sort of thing. But I guess then the thing is a rule yeah, it's going to be open to interpretation and subjectivity..

"I'm going with the form there. My final is sphincter versus bedo sir, but I have put in brackets on our script. Does it really matter question mark? Because I did see that note. No, no. Yeah, I think it's going to be a win, another Grand Slam for yogurt. I just think she's just playing too good of two good tennis at the moment. I don't really see a mental lapse happening. I'd be very surprised if it does. I think she'll be able to handle the pressure and the expectation. She seems to be reveling in it based on ash parties retirement being flung into this world number one situation. I think she's just loving life at the moment. And you can see that in her tennis, she loves playing on the clay court. It's just, you know, it's just eager to film text to lose at the moment. It doesn't matter who anyone else is. I think she's going to go on and win it. Well, I mean, that's what that's what the odds are saying. I think it's eager to feel text world and we just live in it at the moment actually. It's kind of might be the case. So yeah, unsurprisingly, for my predictions, I've also gone for Sri Lanka versus jabar. I was not, well, when I was doing my predictions, I thought, you know, the pressure, the pressure against last year against sakari, but I kind of feel like she's been in so many situations where there's been pressure expectation, and she's just absolutely blasted away through it. So I have gone for both of those. I think my question mark in that section, I think it does depend how she's feeling, but that's what I think should be the result. And then where you've gone for your curveball of teichmann, I've gone for a casso kina. She's had some good results. I think the drawer is good for her. That's what I'm hoping. Chris, I'm not going to lie I feel like your curve ball is the person you're about to say. Oh, true, actually. I think a duke of is going to get to the semifinal fair against Casa keena. She hasn't hit a ball for months, but I just got a feeling to be in the final. He's a non active tennis player at the moment, but I think she's going to do it. Just because she just beats people who she's better than, I am unsurprising the final log on for when. So I mean, I'd love to see it. I'd love her to get another Grand Slam because being a slam nurse would not slam this, but currently slam this. Well, number one, I don't think she deserves that given how well she's playing. So I'm all for ego. We'll see how those predictions pan out and we'll get Kim's predictions as well when she kind of comes back on for a round by round as soon as the French Open starts. But we've got to move on to our final part of the show. It is a big, big part of the passing shot. Collector set, 6 players, 6 predictions we're asking you our listeners to give us. If you've not done this before, collect a set is basically, we're going to give you 6 singles players who are in the drawers, three men, three women, and in order to win a very coveted passing shot mug, you've got to tell us what round they will get to or if they will win the French Open. So we're going to announce our players, Chris, let me do the honors. I will announce the men and why don't you announce the women? Absolutely. Okay, right. Drum roll, the three men, we have chosen for this French opens collector set R Novak Djokovic. Stefanos sisa pass and Daniel Medvedev. And for the women's, we have ons, jabar, Daria kassina, and Bianca andreescu. It's a good mix, isn't it? It's a big name set. Some wild cards as well. I feel like guessing what Daniel Medvedev is going to do is going to be quite a tricky one. That will be tricky. Every time I've ever done this, which is every time it's ever happened probably. I always put one of the big names losing around too and I get it right, maybe one in every 8 grand slams. So that's my advice to listeners would be. They probably will make it past round two. Yes. This has let us know your predictions. So that's Novak Djokovic. Stefanos sisa pass Daniel Medvedev on jabour, Daria cassoulet and Bianca andreescu, let us know where you think they will end up at the French Open or if you think they're going to win it win it. Let us know on Twitter, Instagram, or email, our Twitter and Instagram handles are at passing shot pod are email addresses passing shot pod at Gmail dot com. All we ask is that you get your entries in by the starter play, which for this grand Sam is on Sunday. So you've got tonight you got tomorrow. You've got Saturday and up to when play starts Sunday to get your predictions in. We look forward to seeing them. We will also be revealing hours as well. Along with Kim's, as I said, once we start the round by rounds, when the French Open begins, but Chris, how are you, how are you feeling? Are you confident? Do you think you can, you think you can guess those correctly? I would say having spent a long time looking at the drawer, I think I've actually got too much knowledge of the draw now. I think that can actually be a problem. I think I should make Wimbledon maybe I'll do it blind, but I think now that I've seen that a few of these players have actually already predicted where they're going to get to, I think, I think I might, I might stray from the predictions I've put on the podcast because as you say, if you stay on the podcast, it won't happen. So maybe that's my confidence level in what I've said. Not high. Well, we look forward to seeing what you say. I'm curious also to see what Kim, Kim goes for as well.

"I think it just showed how hard it is to get back to that level and on the women's talk. I ultimately, I think, found it too difficult. As you said, she didn't win a match in her comeback, she lost 5 times, it was very difficult. It makes me kind of appreciate things like Andy Murray in terms of how he has got back to that rigor and has been putting in pretty decent performances. Maybe we will be sort of reflecting on the fact that just getting into these drawers winning matches is an incredible feat in itself because you look at players like Kim kleis, who have tried to go down the same path and it's not worked out in the same way. Yeah, and she said that she doesn't have any regrets, so she did what she felt was right at the time. So that's all you can do, isn't it? I don't think we can say it's a mistake. She wanted to come back and try it. It's hard to switch off. I feel like it's hard to switch off for some of these players when it comes to retirement and we see former players still knocking about us all ag of advance was at the Poland fed cup. Sorry, Poland fed cup, the Poland kind of Billie Jean King cup tyre. And I wonder whether she looks out on the court and is sinking God. I could do that. And I think that is half the battle. It's finding that sort of button to kind of switch off and for some players, I just don't feel like it does switch off, and I think crisis is an example of that. Andy Murray's Andy Murray is an example of that. And it shows, I think, how driven they are that regardless of what state they're in or what their status is, they've always got that sort of nagging voice in their head that's like, yeah, why don't we have another crack at professional tennis? Yeah, I think if you've grown up your whole life doing it, so so hard to not think like of doing it every day, to step away. And she had stepped away for a while and had kids and everything. So absolutely fair play. She'll still be in tennis, you know, she's been still a legend. She's still actually still a legend, of course. And injuries haven't helped pandemic definitely hasn't helped. And we bid her another farewell and hopefully still be around in the sport in some capacity. I'm sure get a cushy tournament organizer job I reckon that's what I would do. Raking all the money. Talking of tournament organization. Davis Cup news, they've decided the organizers have that malaga is going to be one of the hosts for the latter stages of the Davis Cup finals. So that is instead of Abu Dhabi, which had been speculated as the new host for the Davis Cup finals, but a lot of players had expressed concerns about going there. So the ITF and the cosmos who are the owners of the Davis Cup, they weren't able to finalize a deal there. Malaga have come up and said, we're here. We're happy to host. So it's going to malaga in November, which for me, I'm personally quite happy about that. I think malaga is a great city. I'm very partial to a Spanish city and location. I'm sure Gerald PK is as well. Well, exactly. Maybe do you think it's a bit unfair that malaga have got it that somewhere in Spain has got it? They've had Madrid previously. It would be somewhere else. I mean, yes and no, I feel like you can do what you want with it, I feel if you're Gerard Piqué and if that is boosting tennis in your home country, then fair enough, I quite like that it's not Barcelona and Madrid, and it's somewhere else. So I quite like it from that respect. I like that it's staying in Europe. So yes, malaga was already kind of chosen as one of the host cities to host group matches, but the fact that it's now going to be selected for the finals. I think semifinals and the final itself. Yeah, I think it's going to be, I think it just makes sense. The tennessees and is so relentless. This is going to be at the very end in November. November 21st to November 27th. I mean, we're pushing into December here. No one wants no one was going to want to make that trip I feel to the Middle East and Abu Dhabi. Yes, it might have potentially been more lucrative, but I'm glad the ITF and cosmos have listened to their players because it sounded like if they had gone through with that, maybe the quality of the product wasn't going to be as good because players weren't going to be as keen to travel to it. So yeah, I'm sort of happy that with the decision and yeah, I think it's I think it makes sense. And I think it shows that they have listened, yes, there was this talk about Abu Dhabi to begin with, but I liked the fact that they have reacted to that news and have kept it all on all on one continent. Yeah, I think it's sensible. I'm glad it's not going to Abu Dhabi. Personally, glad it's in malaga, perhaps we can try and go. That would be a fab little trip for November, I think. So watch this space passing shot listeners. But yeah, let's look ahead to what else is going on in tennis, the week ahead..

"Incorrect though you have failed, you have failed to reach par for the courts for the hard, hard version. Yes, gustave Quentin was correct. He was a Cincinnati 2001 champion. If you had said to me, Juan Carlos Ferrero, you would have been correct, Monte Carlo champion in 2002. If you had said to me, Mark philippoussis for the Australian, you would have been wrong. It was Leighton Hewitt. He was Indian Wells champion in 2002. Any ideas on the American Andy Roddick or Andre Agassi? Was correct. It was agassiz, Miami, 2002. Tommy Haas was the German. I was considering him and then my mind went to Nicholas kiefer for some strange reason. Sebastian Grosjean, Paris, 2001. Okay. Who was the Romanian then? Andre Pavel.

Albert portas. Hello. I know. Yeah, I'm going to hold my hand up as well. Not sure who never heard of him. Sorry. But just have a Wikipedia now. That was very hard Joel. Listeners, I hope you enjoyed that because that definitely got my brain thinking. Even for the easy ones, you know, I couldn't remember the more obviously. So just goes to show it's a tricky old game isn't it? So thank you, Joel. I have to come up with something equally as challenging for you next week. I think we've got a passing shop mailbag. Next, and we have Jim, who got in touch with us via email. With a really interesting question, touching upon what we've been discussing already today. He said, hi, Joel and Kim. There's been a lot of talk recently, particularly on tennis Twitter, of the ATP tour recently becoming like the WTA Tour, given its unpredictable and unstable nature at the top of the game. Do you agree, yeah, really interesting one. I think Joel, we've sort of touched on this already today, but what are your initial thoughts on this one? Yeah, it's certainly a fascinating idea and I think, yeah, there has been times in the past, particularly on the WTA Tour where you felt like anyone could win any sort of week, particularly at grand slams, and there was just this inherent, unpredictability kind of to it, and I have to agree. I think at the moment on the ATP tour, there is that unpredictability, you know, we've got that because of the restrictions to Djokovic, the uncertainty around injuries for Nadal, Federer as well. We've got players on coming back. We've put up and coming players and as well. We've got this big, I feel like this big melting pot with all these different mix of unknowns and unknowns unknowns and knowns thrown in, and yeah, it's created a lot more unpredictability, I think, than we've seen on the ATP tour, for example, like a few seasons ago when it was just Federer Nadal Djokovic and a bit of Andy Murray, maybe Dominic team and Stan Wawrinka just kind of winning everything. So from that aspect, I do think it is sort of like that. I sort of think the ATP and WTA are going in opposite directions. I actually think the WTA is actually becoming more maybe not necessarily predictable, but I certainly think more stable and I think with someone like an eager tech at the top given her imperious kind of status at the moment, I think she's very much kind of taken on with relish that mantle from ash Barty as the world number one. And I think it's added a bit of stability, particularly at the top of the game, whereas on the ATP side of things, the fact that Djokovic has just lost to davidovich for kina. The Medvedev is not on the tour at the moment. It just doesn't, I don't really know what to think from week to week, particularly at the top of the rankings. So yeah, I do think at the moment there is a sort of crossroads arguably that the ATP and WTA sort of meeting in the middle and one's going one way, and the other is going the other way. Yeah, very thorough answer, Joel. I have to agree, I think certainly the women's tour, perhaps there is a new phase of dominance amongst the select few at the top, especially with Sri tech, whereas the men's. I think when it comes to grand slams, I'm still of the ilk that it's going to be your rappers and you know that 9 times out of ten still for the next few slams at least winning. But injury dependent. I think every other week on the door though, because they're not playing so regularly because they're taking reduced schedules and things like that, it is a lot more of a free for all, especially when you get players like, well, before this week, it's passed, having a few months where he's kind of gone off the boil, zverev throwing in sort of inconsistency. You're not going to have it like it has been the last 50 years. It still feels like some of the players in the men's game, they've got weaknesses there and they've also got strengths and no strengths tend to be at certain parts of the year and it feels like sister pass strength obviously we know is around this sort of this clay season, whereas for zverev, it seems he comes to an end to his own when we come on to the American heart court season like later in the later in the season. So I think again, this sort of feeling that no, there's not really one player maybe at the moment arguably apart from someone like a Daniel Medvedev who has that sort of imperious sort of nature across the whole season. And again, that may be also adding to the unpredictable unpredictable unpredictable Ness I think of that we're seeing at the moment on the ATP side of things. Yes, obviously Djokovic and rapha have proven themselves across all court services. But as you said, we might not necessarily be seeing them play across the whole season. Yeah, really interesting to kind of reflect on that. And I think perhaps I mean, certainly when rappers retired Djokovic has gone, I think it's going to be completely different. And the WTA have had that kind of phase of Serena and then they had a very transitional period. And it's very cyclical, I think, isn't it over the course of decades, really. But yeah, ask us that question in another 5 years, Jim, and be very different, perhaps. But great question, do let us know if you've got any more for the mailbag each week. We'd love to answer all the questions from our lovely listeners. So thank you for getting in touch. A couple of bits of news from the last week. Joel, first of which, Kim cloisters, she's retired again. Get the violins out. This is the third retirement from Kim Clijsters. She announced that she was coming back before the pandemic and she did come back, played, I think, 5 matches on the tour. But unfortunately, her comeback was timed for February 2020, which was as the pandemic was beginning, so she really hasn't had the opportunity that I guess she would have liked and it has not worked out basically. I think she didn't win a single match on the tour. And it's just, you know, with everything else going on in her life, she realized that it's not possible to kind of carry on, I guess. Are we allowed to say it hasn't worked out? I think everyone. I think everyone, I think fans and people following the tour, I think that's the sort of yes there's been all this sort of goodwill and understandably so to crisis and it's even amazing that she came out of retirement to get back on the tour given the time machine had stepped off it. But I think in hindsight looking at it, yes, I think there are things there are big factors that didn't help particularly with the COVID-19 pandemic,.

"This is correct. So you have reached par for the courts Kim. But it wasn't Toronto. It was Cincinnati, but I didn't put that as a stipulation, so you have reached par for the courts for easy mode. Yes. Zverev was the Cincinnati champion back in back in last year. So there are two left Toronto and Paris, any ideas? Oh, Paris Paris Paris. All I can think of is Jack sock, but that was like four or 5 years ago. I know he didn't win. It's got to be Novak Djokovic, isn't it? He must have won one of them. Right? It is. It is Novak Djokovic. Novak Djokovic won Paris. We just put out of our minds and we forget. I know. But it's so common, right? Yeah. So yeah, Paris was Djokovic and then Toronto champion. Was it someone like Yannick sinner? No. Someone of that sort of ilk. Oh, caspar rude? Caspar rude? Yeah, maybe? Kim, it's Daniel Medvedev. I don't know how. I know he's gone off to have like a hernia operation, but I didn't realize he had gone from your mind. So quickly. Well, you know, they've got to keep up to date. They've forgotten so easily these days, aren't they? No, okay, sorry, Danielle. Sorry. But yeah, did he win that two years in a row? Oh, I mean, he won, he would have won the Rogers, oh, I'm getting my years mixed up. 2019 was his ridiculous U.S. open swing. So what's the hard part of the court? And I'm sure our list is very exactly asking the same question, Kim. The hard part to this is this happened, so 8 different masters 1000 champions. The last time that happened was across 2001 and 2002, it happened during Hamburg, Montreal, Cincinnati, Stuttgart, Paris, Indian Wells, Miami, Monte Carlo. It happened so long ago. There are some masters events there that don't actually exist anymore. And again, this is for you and our listeners very, very tricky. Can you name any of the 8 masters champions from that stretch from 2001 to 2002. Now, I know this is very difficult, so I'm actually going to give you some clues in terms of nationalities for you and our listeners. So are you ready for the nationalities? Yes, let's go for it. So I'm looking for two Spanish players, a Romanian, a Brazilian, a German, a French man, an Australian, and an American. I've just jotted that down on the computer, so okay. Right. You did this. You did a similar one, didn't you recently where you gave us the nationality? Okay. This is much tougher. So she's very tough. So very tough. And because it is tough, I'm not going to ask for 6 out of 8. I'm not even going to ask for four out of 8. I'm going to ask for just three out of 8. I'm going less than 50% here because this is very, very tough for you and our listeners. I think this is like the lowest I've ever set the bar for par for the courts, but three out of 8. I think I can do it. I think three is fine. So I'm going to go with number one, Google, Google. It's got to be for Brazil, right? Correct. Yes, that is correct. So gustave curtain is the Brazilian yeah, that is right. So the Australian could be either latent here or Mark philippus, I'm going to the Spaniard could be Carlos moya, but it could be one cause for railroad. Or it could even be Albert Costa would that be oh, Tommy robredo or I'm going to say Carlos moya, that's my second. Incorrect..

"Play the tennis he did in that final given he was a debutante because we have seen nerves call us out around last week. He was a debutante in a master's final. It sort of hindered him to begin with. So again, it was just great to see I think the flare of Aquino really come out across the whole tournament, particularly in the final where, as I said, taking sister pass to that second set tiebreak. I felt he probably would have felt that anything was possible if he could have won that tiebreak, but surpassed able to kind of nip it in the bud. Yeah, certainly neutrals would have been hoping for a third set there. I think he had a very respectable performance in the school line reflected that and certainly we've seen first time finalists at this level just completely fall apart, haven't we? In the final. So certainly very proud, you know, he should be of his performances all week. You know, he really did benefit from a terrible Djokovic performance in that match. I think it was statistically. I think it was a bit of both. I think it was a bit of a. Yeah, I'm not trying to take anything away from cooking it, but I think Djokovic had some of the worst serving like I've ever seen from him, you know, he just wasn't in those rusty on anything, yeah, very, very rusty. Really not at his best, but you know, I think we've seen this from him in recent years at the start of the clay as well. You know, he lost the Dan Evans in Monte Carlo Carlo last year and then obviously he's still went on and won the French Open, got to fund the Rome. So I wouldn't worry if I was a Djokovic fan. It's even probably more exacerbated this year because of what happened in the first three months of the season, but I'm sure Djokovic is only going to be able to get better in time and he'll peak for what he wants to peek for, won't he? Well, I feel like he has to because there was talk of Djokovic not being physically 100% and I think a lot of fans were watching that match against davidovich for and thinking the way he won that second set, you thought he was the one who had all the momentum and was going to kind of carry it through. So it was a real, I think, shocked just to the neutrals really that Djokovic ran out of energy. It's not something we really associate him with. We associate him as a really top level athlete who can, you know, we see that it grand slab semifinals guys have fibers where he's been really put the distance and come out come out the Victor, so it was very surprising I feel to see him fall so meekly in that third set. It does make me wonder whether he should have just played Monte Carlo in the first place and again, I think it's not been helped by the fact that he's not been able to play as many tournaments as he would have liked going into the clay season and maybe there is this feeling or this pressure in the Djokovic camp that he needs to play as many tournaments now as possible regardless of if he's feeling a 100% or not, but I think what I took from it is the fact that he just can't turn up and us sort of expect him to kind of walk through to the final there is rust there, no matter how great you are or no matter how many people are going to say you might be the greatest of all time, there is going to be rust there and I think David for kina exploited that and he played he played a great match. I think he played a great match very tactically as well and Djokovic didn't really have an answer. Maybe he was a little bit surprised but it was a very rude awakening. I think for Djokovic in terms of a welcome back onto the ATP tour. Probably a bit of underestimating going on as we all did I think when we looked at the draw and just assumed that Djokovic would get through certainly to the quarters to face alcaraz and as is always the way neither of them made it there. I know it was so, I mean it was a little bit egg on face, wasn't it? 'cause we were so pumped. I think a lot of people were so pumped for that quarterfinal potentially between Djokovic and Al kres. And yeah, alcaraz having a really good match with sebi hoarder. We sort of were wondering, shouldn't be counted out just yet. I know how crowds is on home soil, but corda coming through that. So yeah, that top half really did. Really did open up and which was quite surprising because we thought, you know, we thought with Djokovic there, alcaraz there. We just thought one of those two probably getting to the final, but it just completely opened up around after I think what day one day two and I think it just shows the ATP has this level of unpredictability, I think, at the moment that arguably hasn't been there, I think, over the last few seasons, given the vulnerability of the big three players, like when they are in the drawers, like we've seen this week with Djokovic and I still think that with players who are expected to have great things in the future like alcaraz, there's still that rawness there that gives you that gives you that uncertainty that maybe you still could you still could lose this and given the depth I think particularly in the up and coming players on the tour with players like corda. Taylor Fritz as well. Yeah, you just can't you just can't assume anything. Can you at the moment? Absolutely not. It's all change and it's never going to be how it was previously with that level of dominance, isn't it? So we have to get used to this Joel, but we get on to this in a bit because that's a question for later as well, I think. One player that's definitely not rusty is Joe Salisbury, new doubles world number one and with Rajiv ram. He won the Monte Carlo doubles title. It was a champions tie break. Are they beat cabal and Farah ten 7? I think this is their first ever clay court title together for ram and Salisbury. So really fantastic. I think it definitely seals Joe becoming the world number one in a really nice way picking up the master's title and Rajiv ram was very nice and complementary saying he's got the best player in the world on his team. So that certainly helps, which would you love that? I mean, it is great to see though, there's so much confidence and belief in both of them and it was quite nice also see, yeah, Jamie Murray with boppana getting through to the semifinals, but yeah, Joe winning that battle of the Brits on that occasion did the semis, but yeah, great to see Joe Salisbury underlining his status, I think, we've actually ran at the top of the men's doubles game. It's great to see hopefully we can see him still playing Davis Cup Theo for GB. I think yes, it's still for me a bit like this is great, but let's hope as a British tennis fan, I want to see that sort of maximized in those moments where there are British audiences. So I'm hoping that, yeah, he can get involved more in Davis Cup going forward because he is he is flying at the moment and again you would not be.

"Came today is the 18th of April and we are here to catch up on the weekend tennis at passing shot headquarters, especially backed by our crowdfunders Georgina Davis and Mark Underwood. We have had our first masters event on the clay this season, the masters 1000 event in Monte Carlo, Stefano sits past is our champion. He was the champion last year. He's the champion this year retaining his title, and that is not bad way I think to start the clay season a very difficult thing to do to retain your title. I think he's the first person outside of the big three to do that in a long, long time. But before we get into all of that, Kim, of course, it is Easter. I've got to ask you the big question that is on is in my head and I'm sure he's on everyone's lips. Of our listeners, what Easter egg, what Easter egg have you gone into? I'm sure you've tucked into have you tucked into a few over the weekend? What Easter egg have I gone into? I've got into a Cadbury's egg. I'm very traditional in that sense. But we can't, yeah. No. What about you? It's so underwhelmed. It's so underwhelming. Have you gone for a fancy hotel chocolat egg then Joel? Not hotel chocolate, but I do, I do posh it up a little bit over Easter. I've gone with, I think you have to, it's got to be lint, the lint chocolate Easter egg, lint chocolate balls as well at Christmas time. It's just got to be done. It's like, for me, it's like the seasonal, it's the seasonal chocolate of choice and Cadbury's, I just don't think it really doesn't elevate the occasion Kim. Come on. I think you've just been sold by Roger Federer like advertising for Lin, haven't you? You just been like, you've succumbed to their marketing. No, I mean, I do love a bit of chocolate. I mean, happy Easter to any of our listeners who have been celebrating. I've been kind of off in the southwest of England for a few days, which has been really nice. Lovely weather as well. We've had a reason. So yeah, it all been very nice, indeed, and very nice, as you said for stefanos it's bass because he's one of his first title of the year, defending his French Open crown. What am I saying? Defending his you are getting ahead of yourself. A few guys had to get sorry. Obviously he had too much Easter chocolate. Defending his Monte Carlo crown. 6 three 7 6 in the final against Alejandro davidovich for kina, who, you know, aside from defending his title, was probably arguably definitely the story of the week. Reaching his first masters final and, well, really making a name for himself. At this stage, are this level on the tour? Yeah, definitely. It's been it's been really impressive from davidovich for kina because he put himself on the map with that victory against Novak Djokovic. I mean, we were going into this tournament. Now looking back on it, a little foolishly thinking sort of nailed in for a Djokovic Carlos alcaraz quarterfinal, but by was it day one day two, both Djokovic and alcaraz had lost and davidovich for kina was very, very good in that match against Djokovic and we'll come on to that in a bit, but let's start with stephanos best because he is the winner. He is the champion and it's just amazing I think for Sisyphus because, as you said, he's retained a masters 1000 title. He's the first non big three player to do that since Andy Murray in Shanghai back in the 2010 2011 season. So a long, long time ago, it just shows that I think how difficult that is to become and I think this tournament is just shows with Sisyphus, although I think there are faults there, you know, with his game and you see that, I think, particularly like on a hard court and we've seen that I think at the start of the season, he's already got, I think, 7, losses on the tour. Yes, he is the match wins leader, but he's had a few losses where I think I've been a little bit surprised by, but coming onto the clay. I mean, his game just works so, so well. And I think this week really, really showed it. And I think particularly for me, the time he is allowed by a clay court really, really helps in terms of particularly I think his ground strokes, you know, I know he hits a heavy ball, particularly on the forehand, which I think was really key to his success, really kind of staying in offensive positions from the back of the court, but also one of his backhand side as well, and also, you know, certainly I think with him, again, I think being questions about that backhand side, but the fact that even on a clay court with that high bounce, he is able to kind of get round and break out his forehand, and I think is really, really helped him in terms of getting into these kind of winning positions. And I think that served him really, really well throughout the whole week and apart from that match against Schwartzman in the quarterfinals, which was an absolutely wild ride. Yeah, he played very, very well in the final. Yeah, definitely. Definitely able to run round and hit the forehand more often. He's got the times to do that on a clay court and get that kind of angles, it really is, yeah, definitely, I think his surface, isn't it? His game is so much more effective. And he served really well against David Richard Burkina in the final, so much better on all the kind of stats is clear kind of winner in that regard. It was just when he was serving for the match, had a bit of a wobble. He was able to break back, went to a tie break, but I mean, really, since has been, you know, pretty comfortable. I guess, for a lot of the tournament, it was really that Schwartzman quarterfinal that he, as you said, went for love down in the third set and had to come all the way back, but aside from that, you know, he had solid win over Sasha zverev, win over laszlo, for nini. So obviously really, I think good for him going into the rest of the places and to have this kind of wind for his confidence because he's been really off the ball for a while. Neither of us really thought he was going to defend his title when we were making predictions this time last week. You know, we were kind of just focusing on alcaraz and Djokovic, as you said. And I was going about Yannick sinner for some reason. But yeah, it's a really positive week, I think, going into the French Open, you know, he will be defending his final at the French Open as well. He's got lots of points there to defend, you know, he obviously lost in 5 sets of the Djokovic last year. Many people are now considering its passes, you know, I guess he would already have been one of the favorites, but it's going up in the form books and the odds perhaps. I think one question mark for me is around his position where he does get into those kind of winning moments in those scenarios where he does have the opportunity to serve it out and we saw that in the final he wasn't able to do it..

Lewis annely system to recap the. Usda girls and boys sixteen and eighteen national championships. Those conversations will come out as great shout. Podcasts over the next few days but perhaps hovering above everything else the twenty twenty one western and southern open we have reached the quarterfinal stage of the event on the men side relatively steady in an otherwise somewhat chaotic year. Six of our top eight seeds still alive and we start to see that next class of you know tier one players the next dominant forces on the atp tour continued to establish themselves as such. Of course the highlighted names the next atp guys that have been at the forefront of that generation for awhile now to kneel medvedev alexandra stefanos cc pasta have all advanced to the quarterfinal round joined by players such as casper route. Who has unequivocally been one of the breakthrough. Stars of this season. Also joined by faa who. Of course i have always considered the leader of the nexgen. Atp two point oh group. He's still around. Twenty one years old could still play in that event this year if he wanted and he's already made eight. Atp finals we saw him his big breakthrough run. It felt like at a slam at wimbledon makes his first quarter-final. They're certainly as we look for him. Here makes another quarterfinal at this masters. All this bodes well for faa moving forward the other players joining them. Public arena boost. Benoi perr andrei rubel. I wanna talk about how all those guys have reached this stage when a preview friday's quarterfinal matches as well. That's going to be the focus of this episode on a separate mini break.

I think you just said something about movement and you know it's the movement and it's the action activity of butterflies flitting in and you know what i mean. It's it's it evokes that kind of texture of nature of a big open field or something even though it's a small my case a small version of that so we're talking about some things that get tired and longtime ago like me no it. Will you know how long word which can be very very gated with silver splashes and stuff pulmonary yes it flowers and the leaves sometimes turn black. Yes and i discovered that if you cut the flower stalks off and you can even cut the whole plan back to about two inches. It'll push new growth that lasts through the whole season. And i've got an remarkable variegated plant. That's real showstopper back arrogation. Sorry but it's a symptom at atlantic of land dekum ex-minister gold. Which i i saw. When marco stefanos planted waybill and now you can find it too by then it was so rare because it's a little tricky with propagation but it throws up flower spikes and it has insignificant flowers and then the plant turns black so but if you cut off some flower spikes and and or cut off the leaves that are black It pushes complete new growth and last the rest of the season. All legend luxurious. So the i don't know if that's going to work for your petunias. maybe you should try having. Yeah and and you know. The reason.

We're able to be distant scene for all the i did this in the past. I want that in the past folks in the future is my pride like yeah next game game five. I do this. This and this in non dominant. That's your pryatta like you. It doesn't happen right here. And i kind of like third folks in the in the moment depressed in that humility. That's been humbled. That's not set. No expectation does going out there. Enjoying the game competing i live. Jonah says just lovely. And i would point out that. There's something about these. New greeks star athletes jaanus and stefanos they just exude earnestness earnestness and in a sense and they come from a culture that i will say is super cynical and i think what you have to understand how y- honest grew up to understand why he might think the things that he just said and believe the things he just said. This is a black african kid growing up in an all white society that is largely racist. This is a kid that sold watches on the street corner in the market in downtown athens..

Game one semis in Tampa Bay, the Islanders over the Lightning 2 to 1. Islanders first win in a conference final semis game since 1983 Tennis.

For your contract extension with linebacker Jerome Bigger words for 39 Million and a baseball the Dodgers lead the Rangers five did not together night behind Walker Buehler, Mookie Betts, the seventh home run. Back on Monday and the Clippers get Game three. So we're left to wonder if another comeback is in the making. Keyshawn J. Will Zubin Monday morning on ESPN radio. Thirds of a season somewhere there about did they have a successful regular season in your mind? Yeah, Yeah, definitely. They were able to pull it off 56 games rather than you know, Typical 82 game schedule. But starting in January, they were able to certainly make this happen out. They did it with hiccups in between. Uh, you know, some teams that unfortunately got covid. They had to push. Some of the schedule back a little bit to accommodate some of these. As the playoffs started in the north Division of the Canadian Division, they actually had regular season games still being played for two couple teams that were out of the mix. While the playoffs actually started, so they were able to get it all done. And as we've seen, like, everywhere else, you know, the numbers have decreased across North America. The teams and players have have had their vaccinations and everything, and it's allowed for a lot more to happen. And we're seeing fans in the buildings, at least in the U. S. 2500 people are allowed to go to the games in Montreal and yeah, Overall, all things considered a success, and it's been a tremendous season to date lot of competition. And now we're finally reached the final four with you know the first time and I can't remember how long it's been, I think, 11 seasons, possibly a little bit more than that. That three of the four finalists Last year. How have come back to be into the semifinals again this season? So that being Vegas, the New York Islanders in Tampa Bay Lightning, so it's exciting hockey and we got playoff action and we had a case today. Like you said. And we'll have Vegas too much. We'll get going tomorrow and one of the things that because of the way they laid it out with teams only playing within their division yeah, through the regular season and then into the postseason. For the first two rounds. Everybody knew everybody because they had played so often during the regular season, you had a pretty good grasp on how things were going to go. But now here in the next year, the last the semifinal round You got no idea how these two teams match up because they did not play at all during the regular season because they stayed within the division and shoot Vegas and Montreal didn't play much before at all, since Vegas is relatively new to the NHL so that they make it up as you go along Type series, but the Islanders in Tampa are a rematch from last year. And damn, It didn't look just like that last year's playoffs when they met today, hard hitting both teams trying to get an edge physically, not a lot of gold scoring. That's what I remember from last should match up between these two teams in the postseason. How about you? Yeah, exactly. I was at every one of their games in the bubble last year. And very similar teams. There's not a significant amount of difference or change that has happened on the roster for either of these two teams. I mean, the only significant one I think for either team would be the addition of David Savard is 30. Stayed home physical defenseman. They added him to Tampa Bay. Lightning did And because the Islanders lost their captain under his lead to injury, he will be ready until next season. The Islanders replaced them effectively with Kyle Palmeri from the New Jersey Devils, a goal scorer that can come in and provide secondary scoring the added Travis a. Jack as well, But for the most part, the core of these teams, both of them exact same that they saw last year in the conference finals. So A lot of familiarity there even though they didn't play this season, But these are two teams that are very strongly matched up and are very deep. They roll all four lines. They play strong defensively, I think overall, although we didn't see it today. But overall offensive outburst is a little bit better on the lightning side, but the way that both of these teams defend, make it very, very difficult for the other team to get going. As we saw today, with the Islanders, winning 21 and taking a one nothing seriously, you mentioned them kind of in passing, and I think they deserve more than that. Palmeri and Sajak were to me kind of key acquisitions and a little bit of a fleecing by Lula, Amarillo. Seeing as he knows those players as well as he does, and he's once again doing his magic for a New York hockey team or New York metropolitan area hockey team. Only now it's the Islanders. Yeah, and and you know, there wasn't much from a regular season perspective. Once they were required prior to the trade deadline. They didn't have that that impact that they anticipated in the regular season. What man? These guys have been absolutely tremendous. A jack plane solid two way hockey. Palmieri had seven goals in the first two rounds for his team leading the the Islanders and scoring. These are playoff performers that they added the compliment. The rest of the core of the New York Islanders. And, you know, quite frankly, if you're an aisle span, you're pretty jacked up, because yeah, it sucks. Not having your captain there, but the way that this team performs the way they roll all four lines in the way that Playoff wise. They, Jack and Paul Mary have Come into the lineup with these and and it seems like they've been there forever. Uh, this is this is a strong unit NPR one. Oh, 456 80, the sports leader. He'll play third base. Eric.

Daniil Medvedev claims first Masters title in Cincinatti
"The world's best men's tennis player at least at this moment is deal medvedev going into last week. The twenty-three-year-old russian had made two consecutive tournament finals here in washington d._c. And then in montreal then this past week in cincinnati he we used huge first and second serves and really solid for hands back ends to beat world number-one electric in the semi finals and divvied viewed goffin in the final to win the biggest title of his career and move up to a career-high number five in the world behind only jovic rafael nidal roger federer and dominic team stephens hero. The eighth ranked stefanos citybus. Thank you is owen foreign his career against gets medvedev seats apostol ben rothenberg last week than medvedev plays sloppy adding. It's good sloppy. He can make you miss without your understanding how you just missed you. Miss shots that you don't mess. That's deep kind of. I watched medvedev in d._c. So i have a good sense of how well the dude is playing but i it didn't know before i saw a pretty oblique tweet on sunday. Is that three years ago medvedev was defaulted from a match on the second tier challenger tour. You're in a match which was played on clay and savannah georgia medvedev. Who was then ranked number. Two hundred sixty in the world was playing donald young young as a black american can player in the first at the chair umpire. A black woman in sandy franch went down to the court to check the ball mark on shot medvedev hit. There was close to the sideline. She called the ball out giving young the point which led medvedev mark. I know that you are friends. I am sure about it. After the game was over french called over tournament supervisor advisor medvedev was quickly defaulted for what the united states tennis association later referred to as questioning the impartiality of the umpire based on her race. There is unfortunately precedent for that incident in two thousand one. Australian lleyton hewitt claimed that a black line judge at the u._s. Open was calling foot-faults on him to to favor hewitt's black opponent american james blake. I've only been foot-faulted of one end. Look at him. Look at him. Look at him. Mate hugh had said look at him. I and you will tell me what the similarity is. Get him off. The court. Look at what he's done. Hewitt was not penalized during a match or afterwards the u._s. Us open tournament director brian earley who you may remember as the guy who came on the court during last year's yes open final when serena williams demanded to speak to the terminent director during her her conflict with chair umpire carlos ramos early ruled that there was no violation of quote grand slam code of conduct and that quote the evidence events was inconclusive as to the intent of mr hewitt's remarks to the chair umpire q._a. for his part said i come from a multicultural country. I'm not racial any way at all. Though hewitt didn't get sanctioned. John mcenroe called his on-court statement unforgivable. It has indeed followed hewitt for his whole career areo still hear people mention it when hewitt's name comes up medvedev's words have gotten less attention because they came in a minor league event probably also because he wasn't yet well known when it happened as far as i know medvedev has never commented on this <hes> the incident did get brought up in two thousand seventeen when at wimbledon medvedev eh opened his wallet and started throwing coins at the base of the umpire's chair to make a not so subtle point about the empires bias alleged bias towards his opponent it
