Naomi Osaka Offends Swahili Speakers
"Naomi Osaka, the kind of player who is just a real big pain in the ass. I like to fire up cross court shot of her face, Naomi Osaka announced last week that she's partnered with LeBron James company Spring Hill to start a new media company. A media company from the girl who doesn't want to talk to the media. And you explain that to me? Naomi Osaka expressed the hope that it would produce TV shows and documentaries and branded content. Again, this is the fraud who doesn't like attention thrust on her. This is the woman who had to step away from competitive tennis for her mental health sake. She said, and then she went on to do a few magazine covers and went to the Met ball in New York City, dressed like a fucking peacock with feathers in her hair. Don't believe anything she says. Now get this, the name of a new venture, she called it Hannah kuma, what she said means flower bear in Japanese. Hold that, hold it because it didn't take long for the Japanese Haitian Osaka to discover, oh, that phrase has another meaning in Swahili in Swahili. I'm not even sure why we care about this Swahili content, but it's why Healy it translates to women with that of a giant. Let's not forget there are 200 million people who speak Swahili, which is the majority of East Africa. So dozens of losers on Twitter in Africa piled on her and they begged her, they urged Osaka to this reconsider that name. They called it offensive. Of course they did. Of course they did. Everybody's offended now by something.

"He was never in that match at all. And he said, you know, the disappointment is different because I was never in with a chance of having a proper run last year and clearly he thought he was on to something this year. Obviously impeded by the injury sustained in Stuttgart when he reached the final and lost a barattini, but he reckons he got the all clear on that. He was okay. He was ready to go today, but the fact that he couldn't get over the line he couldn't win those important couple of points. He feels massive missed opportunity and he's just gutted, isn't he? Yeah, I think he's just so frustrated to have drawn an informed John Isner. 8 times previously out of 8. Yeah. I didn't look at that match and think trouble for Maori because of the record because of how good he is against Isner, but Isner was exceptional. I mean, we have to say that, but. Look, you know, this was, it was different to Serena, you know, I mean, Serena might go on and very well, in fact, might go on and play the U.S. open, but he is in a different situation. I don't think this was all about Wimbledon. Certainly, this was a big focus, but I do think now it's big focus on U.S. open and he was talking about Australia was in tears. It's very much it's a balance between he's taking nothing for granted, you know, he's asked about coming back next year and he was sort of, yeah, my body allows it, of course I will be. But it's medium term, isn't it for Andy Murray. It's not last chance saloon, what I enjoyed about this defeat was it was just, it was a tennis defeat. He was gutted about it, but there was no element of tragedy. I didn't think about it. And I didn't feel like, oh my God, I've got to get in there because this might be the last time I see Andy Murray on at Wimbledon. Look it might be, but something would have to change, I think, for something we'd have to go wrong in the next 12 months for that to be the case. It just felt like a straightforward really frustrating tennis defeat for him. And it was pleased, it was pleasing not to feel any sort of hugely, you know, usually it's all so laden with layers of emotion and pathos and poignancy, isn't it with Andy Murray and it was a bit gutted on henman hill and feel the deflation of everybody watching, but it at least wasn't pathos laden. For once, where should we go now on this podcast that's meandering in places that I haven't particularly planned? Shall we go to Carlos alcaraz? Why not? Who played on court two today? And it was a really hot ticket. I know this because, as I mentioned earlier, my dad and my brother came today, and my brother came pretty much with the sole aim of seeing Carlos alcaraz, quote O lord and savior in the flesh for the very first time. He's renamed the WhatsApp group to whatever it is. Alka razzmatazz. Oh, Christmas. Okay. I mean, he doesn't talk about tennis unless he's talking about Carlos Alvarez these days. We're talking, we're talking about someone here that has scheduled on court two today, math with court one ticket, very disappointing. So plan plan a was just go and speak to them people at court two see if you can bake yourself on, didn't pan out. Plan B at that stage was go to court 12, which is three seating, go to the very top of court to the big court 12 stand. And see if you can stand on your tiptoes and get a view into court two. How did that work out? Well, I don't think it worked out. It just ended up watching Adrian mannarino against Tommy Paul. Twice a while. Yeah, so you can do the opposite. You can stand at the top of court two and watch court 12. Doesn't work the other way around. Can not see court too. Going to a court to watch Carlos sauerkraut and get in her dream mannering. Anyway, I won't tell tell the full tale. But math did end up watching some of Carlos alcaraz in the living flesh. What did you think? Well, I was very interested in this because look I know Carlos alcaraz is the real deal. He doesn't disappoint, you know, he is, he is what it says on the tin. I'm pretty comfortable about the amount of hype that we attach to Carlos sauerkraut. However, with Matthew dealing with, you know, going to court 12 to watch Adrian mannarino in order to catch a glimpse at the top of Carlos Ankara's head. She level of expectation. And I was worried that, oh my God, you can only disappoint relative to that. But he didn't. I think my brothers take was it was very interesting actually. He said, yes, look, there have been there have been moments of alca razzle dazzle, and they have been great. But what's been more striking is I'm just going to quote him because he put it far better than I could paraphrase. He said, I've been more in press with how high his floor is. Then how high his ceiling is. It's not, yes, the razzmatazz is brilliant and breathtaking. But he doesn't need that. That's very interesting. Win in tennis match. I'm really seeing him win matches with a high floor before. Interesting. Well, I walked up for the final set for the latter stages, and by this stage he's playing talent Greeks bore, he was good today actually, but our grass is completely in control at this point. And I sort of very little razzle dazzle, if any, to be honest, it was, it was just good grass court tennis. It was just a quite as straightforward good, grass got performance. He really was playing grass court tennis. Constructing grass court points, you know, knife return at knife approach shots that stay low, finished off with a, you know, with a with a good, deep volley not going for not going for too much on the volley, you know, just keeping it deep and low and looked very balanced, really balanced. I'm not saying the movement is exactly there yet, but that's usually the telltale sign, isn't it? With people that are uncomfortable on grass, he had that. Sort of wide base. Feeling. It was very convincing. Yes, I've been fortunate enough to watch both of his first two matches. And this was just a much more comfortable experience for him than stroop, who was coming at him, who was coming to the net, who was heading it big, who was serving ace, since he was putting him under constant pressure. Our crest was having to react to that and hang on to be honest. I thought he was going out in round one. Here against Greeks for Greek sport played well, but he doesn't have the weapons to throw alcaraz off balance in the way that someone likes truth does when he's playing well. And therefore, I think Al krez was just able to feel a lot more comfortable in the match. And I am absolutely agree with that analysis..
Politifact Should Be Called Politifalse
"So I demolished PolitiFact demolished the middle effect, PolitiFact, as my title is PolitiFact is the fact what proved it was the truth. They used the name, but it's a gigantic lie. You should read my column, it's up at you putting up the RCP so I'm Dennis pretty good dot com. The column is a tennis program dot com, but if you want to go to, if you want to send it to somebody, maybe send it from RealClearPolitics because that's not a conservative site. And let me give you some of the examples. I'm consulting with a lawyer about suing the I don't know if I will. I want to check what the what would be involved. The fact that PolitiFact is just the left wing lying institute. And the pointer institute which funds them is that they went to an America hater named Brian Levin, director of the center for hating America. Oh, sorry. Center for the study of hate and extremism at Cal state San Bernardino. Yes, they not only study hate, they promulgate hate there. Mister prager is long on hyperbole and bigotry and short on facts, what prager claim is a lie. Okay, so since what I said is true and nobody refuted it, I think what he said about me qualifies as defamation,

"On and win the title and the crook and Arcus said, well, I hope so because if that isn't title winning form, then I'm further away than I thought I was. Yeah, that's well put. There was nothing going wrong at all with his game, but it's just the way the pack cash now a commentating on it and just kept looking at each other the speed the ball was going through the air. You don't you don't think of Djokovic as a big hitter as such. Because it's not always like that. But when he's connecting an on grass as well. Coconut is called it a spanking on Instagram. Yeah, I mean, yeah, it was catch manovich now for Djokovic. Catch my virtue I picked a lose to John millman in round one. More full me. I have picked my fortune cookie story. Okay. It's going to be a meandering podcast, folks, bear with us. Good. Because I'm going to head for emirati Carney, my fortune cookie was the greatest wisdom is kindness. And that is what I want us all to afford emirati Carney today. She lost in two close ish sets to Caroline Garcia today. Matt and I watched this match on center court, David commentated on it for BBC Radio on center court. It was great ball striking. I mean, Caroline Garcia, when she's playing like this, I mean she's she's the woman that Andy Murray predicted would be a world number one, isn't she? She's formidable just the most beautiful boys ball strike at the ball made a different sound coming off her racket coming off Emory carnies. I don't think raddy Carney played badly, I think she was under so much pressure on her serve throughout them actually did actually she broke the Garcia serve a number of times. She was, she was a threat on return. And there were a few real moments of magic, but she just, she wasn't able to obey carrillo's first second first law. You've got to hold serve and I think she could do with beefing up the serve a bit, particularly the second serve, but I also think I'll see her was fantastic today and just kept her on the back foot. Throughout and I think, you know, this is a completely normal defeat. She won a match. She dug deep to win that match. She. She found a way to get fit in time for the slam. She seemed physically fine today. She lost to an inform player that's capable of being extremely good. I think it's all, you know, we'd love, we'd obviously all love it if she were winning Wimbledon or going on a deep run at Wimbledon. But this is all extremely normal stuff. And we should treat it as such and give her time and space and according to the fortune cookie kindness. Like a Harry Styles song. Treat people with kindness. I have seen spontaneous conga lines erupt among strangers to the tune of that song and live at Wembley and it will live with me forever. It was sheer, sheer joy, and I wish that upon emirati Carney. Yes, you would much prefer to observe a conga line than be in a conga line. There's nothing better than being close to a conga line. I'm not really built for conga lines. You know, the people in front and behind. It's not the greatest experience for them. Anyway. No, I think you've said it very well on Emory economy. That was exactly how I felt. I was really impressed with Garcia. I did not expect that performance from her. And I think maybe she didn't expect it from herself either. Jackson by some of the comments she gave in the press conference about her first experiences on the biggest courts in tennis in the past, she said, I've played on Philippe chatra, I've paid on Arthur Ashe, I've played on rod laver arena and not dealt with it that well. They've not been happy places for me. I've got nervous. I've got tight and that was kind of the Caroline Garcia I was expecting and I kept expecting it to come in the match. When a carni broke back in the second set, I thought, right, okay, this might be the moment where Garcia falters, perhaps, and raducan who takes advantage of that. But Garcia just instantly snapped back to playing her best tennis broke straight back to restore her advantage. I just thought she was brilliant, hitting the ball sweetly, pushing Medicare new back, following shots into the net and knocking off volleys. Yeah, it was a really, really good performance. And absolutely, I underrated her because she's, you know, she's come into Wimbledon on the back of a title winning run. And she seems to be carrying that form through. She was really impressive. A van Wright hoven esque 7 match winning streak. Yeah. Indeed. I thought we had something to add, David, but no. The only thing I would add is one thing Caroline Garcia does is return a second serve halfway towards the service line. She's a good couple of feet inside the baseline every single time and it appears to be the way you diffuse that is by getting enough good, deep serves in and make her mis hit and rather kind of just didn't. She just fed the return really. I'm afraid. And she got kind of inevitably what she deserved from it. Punchy impress, you said David. Well, yeah. Actually, she was, I mean, I wasn't in there, so I didn't hear how these lines were delivered. But they're quite interesting to me written down. You've had this incredible spotlight and pressure on you because of your greater humans last year. How much of a challenge is that? Rana Khanna replies, I think I've been asked this every press comments, but I'm 19 years of age. Yes, I've had attention, but I'm a slam champion so no one's going to take that away from me. Yeah, if anything, the pressure is on those who haven't done that. Later on, she was asked next time you step onto a grand sound chord. It's going to be as a defending champion. How much does this week in the grass court build up with all the home pressure helped you for that moment? There's no pressure, she said. Like, why is why is there any pressure? I'm still 19. It's a joke. I literally won a slam. Going back to New York, it's going to be cool because I've got a lot of experiences playing on big courts, playing with people in the stadium, playing with the spotlight on you. I don't mind that. I mean, for me, everything is learning. The embracing every single moment that is thrown at me. I like it. Do you think she got the it's a joke line from Tim henman? I was thinking that, yeah. He just said it over and over again. That was final night. Pretty perfect analysis of emirati Carney winning the U.S. open. Moving across and across live to Tim henman now for his reaction, it's a joke. I remember discovering it's a joke as a line as a tennis podcast list now while I was in the middle of my long COVID fever dreams in the middle of the night..

"On the roof of the hospital and the third story landing there's a man's tennis shoe And it's left footed It's dark blue There's some wear over the little toe and the shoelace just tucked under the heel So they go up to the roof of the hospital Sure enough just as she had described it was there That's the kind of corroboration where people see things and hear things that they could not have seen and heard if they didn't have an authentic out of body experience that way In fact 21 blind people were studied half of them blind since birth some people had never even seen a shadow in their life And yet during that time that their spirit was separated from their body they were able to see for the first time they saw people they saw plants they saw birds and so forth And we're able to later describe it And then when they were ultimately revived their eyesight disappeared again That's the kind of collaboration that tells me that there is something that confirms that when we do die we actually live on Now we can't say for how long from the near death experiences but it confirms what scripture tells us about the sole separating from the body
The Collaps of Public School Education
"Let me ask you about their education at Tiffany because I've been covering gender education K through three and the end of excellence education in San Diego's Patrick Henry high school, 9 through 12. Education is collapsing in America as it collapses in Washington state. It is collapsing. And people in Washington state will remember that I was 11 years old when patty Murray was first selected. She ran as the mom in tennis shoes. Oh yes. She was a preschool teacher and she was on school board and she was going to fight for our children. So under her policies, our education has gotten worse. And we were a 44% average in public school system prior to the pandemic. You could imagine how those scores of considerably gone down. All through my boys are in the public school system. And here in Washington state, our kids were out of school for almost two full years. And not only that, we have to get back to teaching math and reading. We have to get back to competitive quality education.
Will Smith Slaps Chris Rock Following Joke About His Wife
"I can't even fit into a symbol. How much I care about the Academy Awards. I can't even begin to tell you how little I care about the Oscars. But last night, during the Academy Awards, Will Smith, who wound up winning best actor for his portrayal of Venus and Serena Williams father in a movie that I didn't even know existed, had no idea there's a movie about the Williams sisters, the tennis stars. I guess he played their dad. I don't know. I don't care. I don't really want to see movies. And I don't care. I was watching basketball. I was watching other things, didn't really care about the Oscars. But evidently, Chris Rock, the acerbic comic told a joke about Will Smith's wife and Will Smith jumped up on the stage, stormed the stage and reared back and smacked Chris Rock in the face. Do you care? I mean, I love how the other hosts get into this sort of parlor game who, who's right, who's wrong, he attacked his wife. Well, apparently it's not a very well kept secret that Will Smith and his wife have an open marriage. So evidently, their personal life is already a little unconventional, shall we say, and Will Smith allegedly takes it very personally when people criticize his wife because he feels like people are calling him a cuckold, which is, of course, a phrase that is like from, I don't know, Victorian England, you know, a cuckold but a man, I guess literally has other men sleep with his wife. And that's what being cuckolded would be. And Will Smith doesn't lie invited to call him that, even though they have this open road.

Tennis Pro Martina Navratilova Weighs in on Trans Swimmer
"Martina Navratilova was one of the who is a feminist. And a gay activist for that matter, one of the great tennis players in women's tennis. And she has railed against the cheating against women being done. So of course, LGBTQ, which is another left wing movement that hates the society and hates our mainstream values, hates Martina Navratilova. Life is devoted to gay liberation and women's liberation and she is now canceled. Because she thinks only biological women should compete against biological women.
Kay Wyma Describes Her Upbringing & Lessons Learned
"Well, I was raised in a hum. It was a different age. It really was a tiny bit different age where you had schools even. That were allowed to let kids fail. The education system these days doesn't allow failure, even in Texas until you're in 7th grade. You don't get a zero. You get a 50. But doing work in your home. Right? And so my dad, I grew up in a home that was comfortable, all right? I really can't remember a day where we didn't have a lovely meal. We I'm just going to say it. When I first car might have had three letters that were German. And so I was not hurting. Now that said, my father instilled in us a good work ethic. We Saturday mornings were chore days. If you went to school, if you didn't produce your best, it was to go to do your best. You don't schleff. We do hard work. You don't quit. Oh my goodness. He never let us quit. I'll never forget being on a tennis court, literally sick, and he was like, you will finish that match. You can retire after, but you will finish what you start. And so that was groomed in to us. And yes, we were very comfortable. I married missionary kid who's upbringing was very different than mine. I might have been going to niemann's getting my clothes, and he was getting it out of the mission box. And so you bring these two worlds together and at the core, we both had families that were hard work, honest. The morals that come behind this great thing to instill in our children, that your effort is worth something, and by the way, you have something to offer. And that's the most exciting part about it.

"tennis" Discussed on The Functional Tennis Podcast
"Tournament stephen agent. What way does that work. Yeah it depends i personally. I haven't had the nation. I don't think i've needed one necessarily to this point that does not mean that it's been straightforward at all particularly with the pandemic. That was very problematic for me because as a freelancer anyway. I'm someone at my age stopping this young with nor background in the sport it is going to take some time to build up sir for the majority of two thousand nineteen the wpa gigs. The i had maybe once or twice a month that was my main source of income source of wok. Sorry i stuck with that. But at the same time i was still volunteering at events doing social media just getting involved with any tennis event that was in the uk. In whatever capacity. the i coulds. I'm people issue and they know what you want to do. And a as a respect if you if you really put in the work and the time and the passion and yeah it was by putting myself in the right place as making sure that i was thoroughly involved in tennis whether it be coleman spacing or whether it be volunteering elsewhere that it did lead onto other opportunities sir. I got same with the lca during events in the uk and they put me forward to do common tree on the murray hr v. glasgow and september twenty nine thousand nine. So that was the challenge of the kids and also the first home intrigued. I did that. Went out on the bbc bbc online. And there's been more stuff like that amazing during a pandemic was battle of the brits team tennis which lead on from doing the elza birth tool and again it was through Stephen pharaoh actually who is was the tournament director of queen's club had hugged me on british tool and suggests that the i do the the battle of the team tennis as well. So that was encouraging. But i mean the other part of your question. Yeah it can be tough when you freelance. And you have to be prepared for weeks of nothing and just kind of hanging on trusting that you're doing the right things and that you're making the right moves because when you you might have a heavy week of walk and you enjoy and it's great and you get good feedback but then if you have two weeks of nothing you inevitably start to question and say to yourself one of my doing with my life in our because it goes against the norm of a nine zero five where you know your wages consistent. And you're our consistent and you have to trust the process and trust that the walk you put in will inevitably show itself and even now to this point where it looks like. I'm doing well. That will be weeks where i question and say am i actually on the right path but i will say looking back that every single time. That has happened every single time. I started to wonder whether i am in the right career path. Or whether i should be doing something more something has come up to tell me a keep going one. Such example of that was rolling garrels this year when i'd started suit question and basically at time. The only thing that i was walking almost the league so i thought oh. Wow well if properly goes. I'm in a bit of trouble. Up comes roland garros sir. I've definitely learned to keep going. Keep trusting and you know. I believe that if this is where i'm supposed to be and if i keep walking hob the doors will open sar. Yeah you figured out by now fabio. The i rambled quite a lot if it's too much. Just into samson all is good. The paper heard listen to you not to me so That's if you're doing that. A good job. I think so question. I have is of the commentating. You know you turn the on caros you do. Some good british stuff would they. You'd said you do the future still. Maybe players aren't as well known. It's hard to get information on. How hard is contained further players. Who aren't as well known which is not that much information you can't log. Ibm watson i'm not sure to name and get all the stats on federal on all the top guys or even bit lower ranked but when there's some the f. there that there's not a lot on how harder is commentating. It's interesting that you ask that because like almost find that easier. And i think that is in part. Thanks to where. I am when i do these events so at the moment i'm working a lot on the uk pro league in the uk for those that don't know what that is. It is a uk specific league for british players to enza as set eleven weeks across the season and play as a base in the uk can answer that and each week is in a different location in the uk. Every week vowed site. And i've got nor the players from that really well ahead of matches. I'll chat to them or a message them. I'll ask them about career. Highlights how they got into the sport allows them how they feel about the conditions of the venue. That kind of thing on the on the atp challenges. Actually well. i've done. When i was doing the birth tisch tour bassil of the brisk team tennis last summer. I was staying. Mtc so i was seeing these players like i had meals with some of them on occasion. I was in the same circles. And so actually i think that's where the relationships with them come really handy because as good for me because it makes my job easier but it's also good for them because the bed my commentary is the better is for them. They get a more accurate representation of the journey today and their ability. See and i can sell story that much vessel with the information that they give me sir. Yeah i would say that i. I've been blessed to be on site for of those low attiyah events that i've done and have been able to utilize the players themselves to get the information needed. And i think that's been great for all involved really. That's a good point you make where you're surrounded by them your chat with. You're picking up little nuggets here and there which are what people like to hear on on the tv. We've had mark petchey roby cohen. Nick makarov the podcast in the past. So you're not the first commentator. We've all being great difficult road ahead here but have any of those guys give.

"We've had some news tonight from australia. That a lot of the plans that they'd had in place that we understood them to be from the interviews that criteria the tournament director done. All the idea. Was that players would come in. Mid-december do that. Two weeks of quarantine play all of the pre australian open tournaments in melbourne <hes>. To reduce travel and potential spreading of the virus. And that has. We've been told tonight in reporting by tennis channel. Initially that is not going to be viable. That players are not going to be allowed to come into the country as things stand in december at all and the first day that they will be allowed to set foot in the country as the first of january. Which if they are required to do two weeks quarantine at that point would take them up to about three or four days before the australian open is due to begin which is hardly ideal at the very least and potentially threatens the entire australian tennis summa <hes>. Certainly those preview those run-up tournaments that <hes>. That they would hope to run whether the couple for some of the other events that they might bring over from brisbane and adelaide and sydney. We don't know officially wear tennis australia. Stand on this at the moment. We we've only heard this news in the last few hours and it does follow comments from the premier of victoria. Saying that it's absolutely not a done deal. Plays can come in in december you know because of the logistical issues of bringing all these people in and they've spent such a long time in lockdown getting rid of the virus dampening down to the fact that they've had apparently zero cases over the last couple of weeks new cases <hes>. So we don't really know where we stunned. I think the what kind of expect they may end up doing if this continues in plaza not allowed to come until the end of december. The the first week in january is to try to coincide the two weeks of quarantine with those tournaments and be able to get permission for players to practice and play competitively. I would imagine in some sort of bubble whilst effectively quarantining and therefore that would make it doable for them. Not only to run additional tournaments but also to play the strain open. But catherine this is <hes>. Just generally this is a pretty alarming state of affairs. isn't it given. it's not that far away now. Now we're talking about plays plays would have been booked in planning to travel in less than a month's time to australia significantly less than a month's time in in some someplace cases and particularly exum i think because because the tennis will the i thought okay. I mean the the barriers to entry to australian and the price of entry is incredibly high but once their once the tennis world is there and and post three days barriers. It's a it's a kind of safe haven for tennis to exist for while and and flourish for oil <hes>. for that to be thrown into some uncertainty <hes>. Is is quite discombobulating. Ready <hes> an i. I can only imagine how the players in the tools feel about it. I i completely respect the position of <hes>. If the australian government absolutely i mean we are in a glass house in terms of criticizing the likes of australia's <hes>. Approach to risk averse approach to <hes>. To covid nineteen absolutely <hes>. But yet the timing of it is is very disconcerting. Absolutely me i'd say something. I keeps coming back to me when we have in the events after the us. Open rome and run gar austin a couple of times match just mentioned. I'm watching this. And i'm still wondering whether it really is right. You know to see all this international travel when this is going on it. Just it's hard to put the two together as much as we love the sport and wanted to be out to be viable at the moment.

We're just living in the sweet sweet moment of Palermo and Fiona Ferro up against an contemplates Tennessee is bouncing. It does feel properly like real tennis. Now, because this is the first time we've reviewed tennis tournament and previewed another one with. pre-tournament press conferences going on everywhere that we've been listening across to and chats amongst about people and look at draws actually looking it draws is. Suddenly such a thrill. It feels so so exotic do one of my lockdown. Tasks was to organize my phone apps into the hopeful folders. I. Completely Forgot which fold Roy put my eighty WPA schools happen to me quite a long time to hunt around to find that. Mind seem to shut itself down given that it hadn't been used five months after reloaded onto my phone. Just, a bit of a rough. It was glorious to see tournaments pop up in it. They wasn't. Oh Yeah. Yeah, such a defining feature of tennis happening the ATP. WGN APP being. Full. Kind of forgotten. How to preview tennis. The. Great. Stay tuned. Because the WTO always send. You know prior to every tournament, they send out match notes, really helpful staff and stat and. Kind of feels quite relevant at the moment because. The kind of it doesn't really matter who's won the most titles this year already, there's no such thing as form at the moment and it's all. It's all really unknown like what? What are the factors going to be with how players perform? Yeah. I mean, Fiona. Farrow is going to be like the new sort of defacto world number-one. Suddenly, she feels like the greatest player of all time to me because she's six to three all against the conservation I did find myself looking up Fiona Farrow before this podcast to work out what she'd done before it systems any sign of this having. Coming about six months ago. Matt Matt. Thanks. So I mean I've gone through her exhibition results she's unbeaten. Unbeaten an exhibition tennis during the lockdown ten Matt.

I mean I'm getting I'm getting carried away with. These being perform because that's the only thing given the well, exactly. So maybe we should be looking at the players who have played a lot of exhibition. Tennis in this period, if people that are you're going to be having to make predictions. Maybe that's something to a life off to cling to. We have already made predictions and they've gone incredibly. They became irrelevant. They became relevant very quickly. <hes> nobody was picking Fina ferry now whether it is going to be interesting, though isn't it to chart the few players that have played a lot of matches over the last. Actually, there are quite a few players because if you think of all the exhibitions that have gone around on all around the world and some of them have been publicized, some of them have been televised some of them. We've talked about others have kind of gone by without really. Being. Noticed, but a lot of players that played a lot of tennis and then some party played any at all and it will be interesting to see whether that has any impassable.

Be Subjecting himself to a year of misery in the primarily next season. I e the night before I watched. My, team just stumble over the finish line I watched. What fit in the Premier League Neil four down against Manchester ccn about half an hour and Really, did change my mind as to whether I wanted to go open all. It made me. It made me think you know my. Maybe, think back to when we were when we were booking and planning a trip to the French Open. and. Planning our <hes> early days. shedule around your. Travel to the playoff finals. Wembley I said, would it be okay if I trip back to London for the final during the French? Open and we decided that that would be content gold, yes.

It gives us a chance to rant and rave and. Give! Opinions about things and it is drew David. They've. Picked out the best of the questions from social media they've they've come up with some of their own as well. And a good questions quite meaty, so <hes> proposals fakes ready. Oh Yeah Yeah. Matt's never looked already had a haircut. He's yeah. What do we think of the haircut? It's pretty dramatic as he did. Go four and a half months without touching. Any haircut would have been quite dramatic because. Quite. Did You keep the her? No. As I said God. What A WEIRD QUESTION OKAY! To lockdown, everybody being on. We'll obviously quite a lot of questions that have come in about lockdown about covert about how it's going to affect tennis. Is Kind of unavoidable to to address all of those issues. And try and speculate about a completely unpredictable. Because frankly that's what the situation has been in instill is but. We make our money by predicting the unpredictable say goes. It? I I question. will go with the something covid related. Is the players responsibility to do what safe for themselves or is it? The tournaments responsibility to guarantee safety regarding covert. A Nice easy one. To to to ease yourselves and he wants to take that. Why I don't think it is possible to guarantee anything really you know. The the tournaments rinsed Francis the US Open. It is incumbent upon them to create the safest environment possible and to convince the plaza, the bubble that they are creating and the passage they're creating into that bubble is a secure as possible, but ultimately the players have got to decide whether that's something that they are prepared to do whether. They're comfortable to do whether they're. Also prepared to stay within an environment like that because they cannot be breaking the protocol. We've seen in world team. Tennis. They from what it seems like did a pretty decent job of creating a bubble. Daniel Collins decided to go elsewhere. <hes> for I, I mean she. She did say it seems that she needed some treatment for her. What's the condition? She has rheumatoid arthritis which Kim. You know okay. I sympathize with her, but. She brought the bubble and therefore got thrown out a world team tennis. We saw Griego Dimitrov who tested positive for. ovid's during the until. gave an interview last night and He's had a really terrible time with illness I. Probably mild symptoms relatively speaking and yet he said he was in bed for three weeks and he's still feeling the effects of it now so. Players have got to make the call as to how much of a risk they're prepared to take. HOW COMFORTABLE LEAD! Enduring, cyber, there is it is impossible to guarantee safety I think.

It's still got fourteen shows with the past. Garnsey from Wimbledon as things stand at the moment and barring barring. Ya Cataclysmic Star events. Obviously which we've come to expect in life, we are going to be recording five grams slums worth of daily podcasts to Antigua and see which. One makes me all these conspiracy theories about five gene stuff. Was the coronavirus. Some sort of David Law manufactured events in order to find a way for us to produce. More podcasts in the twenty twenty David has the biggest grin on his face. It's definitely the silver lining that I can find <hes>. Five slams. Yeah, we are. Explained probably explain why. Let's chase of the news because we've actually got. Live actual tennis news to to hit you with. Today today well, actually, it was more yesterday, wasn't it? Because the US Open and I mean it's been a not brilliantly kept secret right it was. It was leaked to the New York Times. It's been it's been all but confirmed for for a few days right? Yeah, it was clearly coming. Decision had been made an frankly even if you go back to late last week, and the all the plans being talked about by the New York Times and John Wertheim has been writing the story as well for sports illustrated, and then we did. We did a conference call. Would Feliciano Lopez with a? Dozen of the British journalist, because this is of course, fever tree championships week should have been <hes> the Queen's Club where Lopez won both singles and doubles titles last year, so he was talking to them a little bit about that, but he also really gave chapter and verse about the player meeting they had last week the. Zoom call now we're all we've all suddenly discovered. What zoom is over the last three months? This video conferencing ten. Days David Law I've done a lot of. <hes> but on this particular eighty, a planned meeting one they had four hundred players on, and this was the USDA and the the tools tending the players what the plan was to try to make the US Open plant. This is on the ATP side I leave. It turns out none of Novak. Djokovic handed out Roger Federer were on this call, but anyway the had four hundred people on it. And Lopez gave us chapter and verse on on this <hes> This media conference about what was said, and the lengths that they were going to to, and also that he was assured he was absolutely sure that it was going to go ahead. The US Open is going to happen. He said he also said it should happen. In my view, it's time the tennis to get rolling because. Bear in mind. He's not just tennis player these days He's a tournament director. He is going to be. Fronting one of the events that will take place in the remaining months of the tennis calendar. That's Madrid. He's the tournament director there, but he had a pretty stark message for the players in that call that we are going to have to accept less prize money. We're going to have to get used to that. We're GONNA have to basically stop being so precious what he was saying and understand be realistic about. The year we're in the climate. We're in the situation we're in

Under the brand of every tennis, which which have run for many years, so that's how coaching Brian Holton Sense. Responsible for team coach is delivering that program. The overall club everything that happens tennis-wise the Santa. A. A few of my own individual clients is still quite heavily involved sort of on-court on the performance side. and. What would you good chef Chris as a tutor and? The level, four senior performance coach qualification a. That's. Broad kind of day. I had done a few soy earlier. This week I did a bit of a recap of revisits to how many countries listen to this show and I was blown away their eighty seven. Countries where people listen to the show, so for those that are outside the UK, Describe Your Tennis Club in terms of what is in the UK, but also the can a slightly. Say Yeah. Unique History of the tennis club. Yeah so we are in Buckinghamshire and quite quite. A Rural County, but not too far from London so you know forty minute train ride into London. So Beautiful area around the sort of the Chilton Chilton hills and. Glorious area! and. It very much shun the clubs. History's very much steeped in a very very strong relationship with them. The Royal Air Force. and was for a very long time. The RAF Tennis Center. An and back in two thousand two. Way developed a really really interesting partnership with with RAF tennis, and to be able to run the center. And provide. For All of their needs and their teams, but also really put us in a position to develop the facilities the overall club. And really develop what we what we kinda. Hope is just a a world class club. And his clock. That's a I love that expression world class. Club, and they often too much of a tangent. I think we're both fairly philosophical, but. And this idea I think it's a UK thing that a club. is on a hierarchy. Scale is not. The, order, If you said. I run a club versus I run a performance program. People would think performance program is more important or more more complicated, and I know the size of your club and I notice from the various discussions. We've had over a drink after a module of the SBC that. You know what you do is phenomenal in terms of the the. Over arching reach that you have within your tennis community, and of course you're. The Person Directs that circular WANNA to try and build up this picture of if we can, but before we do that. I'd like to go back to your first tennis. Experiences so describe how you go into tennis where you were in the world. Now, thank you Chris Snow I well I was born in born and raised in Nairobi Kenya. and. My first experience of tennis was and my dad built my brother and I a tennis court. You just get not no background in tennis, but decided. You know we were quite came. Spokesman the both of us sin. I must have been six seven. And he built us this cool. Literally with his bare hands, it was incredible out of. Marham so what they? What? The the roads in East Africa were made of this kind of really orangey clay type sort of surface, and that's that's how I that's how I began. I? Would you tell me about your DAD building your court? I naively thought he painted lines on grass. In. Venice is actually the real McCoy yeah. Bill chat rolled. It got the Merriman and I mean it was an absolute labor of love. Muster taken in. You know best months to do it. We can't and. An offense! Defense Toe fetched. I mean the the only issue we had. We had a family a will in the garden, so they would come and destroy the fence every night, and it was you know we all kinds of things to battle with, but. I was less send my brother and I began to play on that court and then. From their own woods. Voting schooling Kenya have played at school and then when I was twelve thirteen, we moved to the US to Arizona. Kind that square. Montana's probably really really to call. The school back a little bit and actually. Because we hadn't miles maclagan on the show. And he described his upbringing in Africa in. It sounded so. Organic for lack of a better word, especially in the sporting sentence, and it's probably again. This slightly rose tinted spectacles that we can sometimes be guilty of.

Fat Having to police station register and had to do two quarantine in an argument Fortunately things are also more normal over here we can go out and buy a few hours a day which is fine but obviously not getting a flight home and things like that so having to stay here and just wait until something's ready same as we were saying a little bit earlier World Atanas just have to be flexible and adaptable and Wash your shed. You're gonna be with Johnny Weeks. You missed at Waseda plan initially was I was always. I think they've done Australia for the month. On due to the situation there wasn't any flights to get to China on February so ended up doing a few extra weeks with them in the States del Rey each of the in New York and then was an opportunity to come over here for initially. It was a few weeks on the way we would have done it. Gore trading and. Then get ready for the add. Leon ready for the Rangers. Well always last kind of going into to financial details. The reality is that you. There's no security in terms of financial compensations. You you just don't know is is is a challenge if you're self employed coach So there is little sick either. There is no help over the LT of being very good Of which is equivalent of aid soul asking data useful and the government Israel of ourselves commissions are package which I'm looking into sleeping easy access here by the also bility's but in general you know there is no security said something in our lane of work. It's not an ideal setup on doesn't seem to be a huge amount of information to help people like yeah. Yeah hopefully it will start to self while they wanted to silver linings might be as being brought to. Everyone's attention kills me. It's taken you know something like a global pandemic to actually make the general public. Actually go never really appreciated that. Ninety nine point nine. Nine percent of tennis coaches are self employed. Then there's no there's no union it's been interesting. I've been looking into different professions. That have union so acting musicians Out of work for the self employed people so maybe this idea of a union is actually it could not occur looking at. You don't know when you're going to be able to start working properly again. You know if you guys like sales at we travel quite law. That's going to change as well so he probably looking at will defending school let more back to normal at the start of next year isn't a couple of months so you can't go on need to go with earnings of it is going to last. And so yeah. I you say existing. Really the in a way that it to be highlighted as as a problem. Yeah hopefully we can look at. These lowers west yet. Definitely definitely so. Let's take down memory lane. I'm looking forward to this yet. So we've we've known each other for probably over thirty years now and we probably come from similar. Let's say playing expediencies as in Kenneth Club? Expediency so describe what was like where you live in a Tennis above what your tennis early junior Israel and I think the soda initial behind was it was would be myself. Leon as younger guys Girls that live next door to us and the fatal status at the local club on obviously Be Saved Go in place in Santa's village let let's try and I think very quickly just so fell in love with and it was just bad easy bay accessible and the what Seems the everything on that. Gold Shore Dude member with Leon Caesar's Virtually every Saturday Madonna Drove HIS OFFER CLUB. Clarkston. We be dropped off there. Maybe like nine o'clock compiled lunch. We the play a lot together do the same in a Sunday. Madonna's finished arch come by is often like say ski m Displaying Sinus all day making Grand Slam tournaments age quite nice at the Club at Clarkson was laid a oxygen grass was also at the courses also Blace so different surfaces have Wimbledon finals and things and they really just from Heine all over the years I think we ended up having a bunch of ten or fifteen all of and I was license over. Sixteen seventeen is great fun. Great Fun high-cost. In the club work was your initially. It was throw Leila started off. Debatable Code stamper lines which is no longer there armaments. That would be. Maybe like a ten minute walk as an dangerously by John's removed mistake across the road from Clark Santana's clubs so lakes gets through a tennis balls gardens today. The clock not have to see they don't on safety so we autopsy would have taken US fifty to get to the club engines. But you need us to the end of the road. The traffic lights every time. Oh it worked if we didn't lose in order to advance that that's how we learn discipline and don't lose your hours so it's a little bit. It's funny 'cause my memory. All by steady your items in the my memory was across the road but I do remember the the so for people listening because I think think Alaska Fifty four different countries that listens to the so describe. What glazes like pure man's plate? You're standing if you under yards away you'd think French Open. As you get closer you start to notice giant rate Rox. I never thought of that perspective of your few yards of leaks. Okay because you get reality. King said yes so that rookie. That you mentioned that whole thing of like a pack of you hanging the Club in A. I'm kind of unapologetic league going to be nostalgic in this because this is the one thing that ruse tinted spectacles doesn't apply. I think we need to get back to this idea of a a big group activities hanging. I tennis clubs or at least training together in big numbers so we can get more people coming through so said you know what? What benefits did you get from the big number stuff at club other than obviously just playing tennis? I think the the obvious this we love playing tennis On the loss of different variety throws blade. But soon as it was done by behind you clubhouse that was all the socializing and it was. You could play tennis. And then once attained was done the the life violence which as we get older we stopped shaved more. But you had that you got really good social education with us in.

"Thank you rose for introducing this edition of the tennis podcast. Catherine Matt and Myself David Law are here to answer your questions today. Because it's Thursday. We wanted a podcast. We've only answered about five or six in every other previous listener questions podcasts. So we've still got loads and loads to get through plus about another hundred and fifty came in with matches putting out single tweet. So how you doing both Matt? You're fine thank you. Yes busy waiting through those questions that has been completed and we are ready to get going ready ready to rock and we'll have to rock because one of them's about entrance. Music Castro in for us to come into call wait for that one nice boilers today. I'm all right. I've worn. Put a Cardigan over over my dressing and to try and disguise the facts that I am not dressed. But it's I'm I'm looking at myself in the in the camera and I'm realizing it's it's a flimsy disguise. Isn't it fooled me? It did it. Oh okay I needn't have mentioned anything. Twenty seconds ago it's coming to say look down and everything okay so little insight there folks stuff. We didn't do. We both thought Catherine had dressed up for the occasion. But apparently this is our earliest recorded lockdown. I think it is a bit early. Isn't it Crikey ten thirty in the morning folks that doesn't exist on Catherine's clock she's have to borrow on. I write questions. We are going to get cracking immediately. Matt's what have we got first game to Sherry be on instagram. Who Asks probably in response to our pod on Monday when we some this topic. How can we make tennis more enjoyable without an audience? Pool is a big ask is probably something we should be thinking about though. Isn't it rather than I mean you know? We settled on the last that we will have reservations about tennis behind closed doors about crowd. Whatever you WANNA call it But it's a very real prospect I've done a couple of interviews in in the in the last couple of days one with Sergio Bruguera with Michael China. Be Hearing bits of the move the over the coming weeks we. We touched on lots of topics but I asked them both how they felt about tennis behind closed doors and their opinions could not have been more polarized surgey yet. I'm absolutely all four. It just bring tennis back as soon as possible. No matter what you have to do just bring it back. He he's panicked. He said bring football back. Bring tennis back. I need to watch Selena as a matter of urgency needs tennis return and when he first onto the question he was. He was definitely talking from a spectator's perspective. And I said what about what about as a player would imagine playing French. Open final with with Nike Crowds. And still he said. I don't care I don't care to bring it back. I put the same question to Michael Chang. And he said the opposite he said Noah I I just can't visit it's it's it's It's to wizards comedy get get my head around it. So there is going to be a massive divide in the tennis community. If one the first actual tool level event gets gets announced that it's going ahead you know this is GonNa be little debate flying around so we're getting in the we getting in the. I wondered if I covered a champion's tour event in two thousand and eight in Istanbul in July. It was my first one flying so lame and Istanbul in July. It was about forty five degrees. I'm not sure why they decided. That was where it should be in the calendar but anyway it was to be outside for long periods watching sports so there was just nobody in the crowd nobody whatsoever so they pumped crowd noise in and it was. It's of course it was weird but maybe it helps a little bit. I do now is like what she they've been doing. The the Graham Norton show haven't they with him from his from his house with a little sort of mini studio setup and he still does his little comedy. Bits in between guests and what he's saying is funny and he's still the same guy he's still is charming and funny as ever hearing those jokes land without any crowd response is really really painful. It puts a completely different complexion on it. I'm of finding myself a company of I'm saying this because I've spent fifteen years talking about. How candle do is the only bad thing about. I'm Alan Partridge but it makes me sort of cry out for some canned laughter. Deny what is this? What is endemic doing to me? So this is going to be like sports office style. Isn't it great? Things Happen to utter silence. And that's going to be a bit jarring all. I think there's two things one think it'll be interesting to see whether we adjust as viewers. It is a different world. Let's assume it's a different world for a long time and we just have to. Kinda of get used to it and we can't do what we used to do anymore. John macular used to fly a Concorde to London every so often he can't do that anymore yes to go on a on another planet. That's the same unknown but there are certain things that Diane Struggle Israel but it is still only sports is not so. Maybe you knew of the game. That doesn't ECON. Flippantly say at a time when we will disgust and made hot felts given heartfelt accounts of whites not just sports come on e. Can't flippantly say I wonder whether we'll find something else within the sports other than just the sound the look. I don't know I'm just. I'm wondering whether whether I will watch the sport. In different ways other senses will become more. Attuned yeah possibly may or may fall out of love with it. That's also possible. I think ultimately the fact that it isn't just sport is actually the strongest argument to bring it back without fans because it's what players need for their livelihood so if they if if there's a way to get the tour back up and running and get the economics of it back up and running without fans that is going to be more important. I think than consideration of whether fans in the stadium will not if if we're going to be able to give these players chance to play with prize money and all that kind of thing then they need to take. That opportunity is going to be weird. But we're going to have to accept that. I think I think that's more. I think that's more important consideration than whether it's a bit weird or not for

"Welcome to the twenty nine th entry into my tennis journal. Where the hell does time go? Today I've got a bit of a treat for you. I just had a fantastic chat with their one and only got a cat who who is a tennis. Coaching legend was the national coach in performance. The rates are for Tennis Ireland for fourteen years and earlier this year decided that he would like to create his own company in on environment with the Cleveland Mission of developing top. One hundred self sustaining food tennis professionals. We'll hear all about that business and what he has included within it. You will hear an amazing thing. Right at the star about how he has actually purposely built his own facility using patents and and coaches amazing story and genuine spiting. And you will hear all about Gary Time as Davis Cup coach. Some fantastic tips in there about how to do on Courts match-play type coaching and some great advice for coaches in general. So a real treat. It was about forty minutes but of course we could have spent hours and hours say chatting about the tennis world so before I pass you to. Gary as usual is just a case of if you like what you hear shared it with your tennis. Pows give us a cheeky. Little Five Star Review on itunes or any podcast in that you listen to if you got a minute to spear spend minute rating interview about what you'd like to in particular this episode or any of the other that you have listened to in the past go back check at the back catalogue of guests some amazing people in there for you to listen to so that's enough for me. L. Pass move on Tuesday so Gary Cahill welcome to the show. Orange Custodio note. Perhaps I always seem to ask start by asking people. I think here you are moment. I'm in a local coffee shop in Dublin. Now just join a nice coffee lucky and so. I've been meaning to speak to you for ages. Things were both very busy but saw something on facebook. The other day is up if you don't believe it. It was the site of the Indoor Sports Hall being transformed into to to endorse sports. Is that right? We have now to indoor tennis courts and to aerobics studios for physical training often. And the thing that got me was that it seemed to be very much a joint venture with parents or like community zone. So can you start us there and actually tell us that's come about and what it what it's like. So how come abode is a? I wanted to develop a performance center of excellence for high-performance players in Ireland. And I was trying to find a venue dot was suitable for housing these kind of athletes so I looked around and looked at loads of different options like my own center. Many different options that show a lot of courses that done but they all pro proven to be way too expensive with vestment Particularly when you're in the performance Site of sport because performance. Tennis doesn't actually make money so I ended up Lincoln in with a local school called Woodlands Academy which had to structure. That was a ginge with her out of an all purpose surface. So you've seen them. They're like slippery surface stuff shiny. Shiny Kinda surfaced. I if the ball tennis ball Lonzo but it's a bit like glass nice short socks. Even from the school's Perspective Way to slip to have kids so I approached the school to lease the center. Part of the to resurface the surface into center. Because it said it was not suitable for pipe performance. Tennis bears so to do this. It was a really expensive project is firstly we have to take up the existing floor which would be a huge Jolla. Then you have to put up a surface and top of this and then you have to be acrylic. We got these incredible colts to do this job so I said well. Let's try and do really well. Let's try to do it on a much much tighter budget. So I got coaches that. Were working with us. parents one parents in particular Who is an engineer? Who would be involved in projects like this? Before the lead. The project and We took in some contractors as little as possible because we run a very tight budget under. We've just finished resurfacing the course to a USO file Harkat court which is incredible surface And we did it on a really really tight budget so yeah I am. I wish decided podcast. So should see my face like you so without going into too many figures and wherever bit percentage from the court if you'd gone with the contract to how much it costs you what percentage of that while maybe fifty percent some serious money. Yeah it wasn't affordable really to to to do is we had gone away but perspective of team building a community of people to see parents Yet in some cases helping to paint is warning about the surface. These are parents have high-performance tennis players. Who just want the best further children under willing to go to Stanton nanette surfaces? Really offer kids. They all rolled in dot involved. Which were really really proud of. Just amazing to see the pictures of everyone mucking in created prodigy tennis. And what's the? Let's say for coaches at? What's the mortal of delivery for prodigy tennis from a business and also practical sense so so basically probably came from Lhasa? You know there's been. There's been debates around the world but in Arlington last year. But what are tennis should decentralized centralized are? What's the best supposed Tennyson in? Oh I believed us. We need really good close. What at a certain point. We need the best players together in an individual because large squads lar squad programs in my experience. They don't produce really hypothalamus. Bears there has to be the individual approach to produce farms bears. And that's why I went about quit prodigy because I wanted firstly base for players. Who were really serious about coming become performance? Bears means twitter. They've become pro players. They won't all become pro players but at least give them the opportunity because pro players are secondly maybe a lot of these players when US colleges. But I want to create something that in wasn't firstly hope becoming a college player. The college was something that was down to back on I wanted something that players but the ambition to become pros this tran on. Also I wanted to link in with other services so for example prodigy will also coach education the future prodigy will also help academies are clubs to develop their. Komo's so there's a lot of different strands Bush. The first stage three to start a develop programs. And did you have some that? Use to word resistance for lack of a better word in terms of ambitions for Irish tennis players. The conflict of opinions there or was it. Just the piracy be decided to go different routes. Yeah well it's more the powers-that-be sell decentralisation More regional BIZ programs with the goal to develop high-performance and college Tennessee. Seen is really the pot for Irish players player. Should go to college Nashville site in my experience. Seeing this Clair's course can go to college. If embiid caused college. That's all we will ever produce. That might even saw exactly. So I'm business type AFAM players then. No I know also fall short because there's very obviously top players who went to college you don't. We will produce high-performance. I mangle the Parole Megan College but we can't develop a structure hotly just for US colleges. We shouldn't as a federation CEDAR TO US colleges. It's not there's no return for federation and most of sorry you the Pun is going to make is that. Most of our players who end up in colleges fit county them played Davis Cup Perfecto for the constantly. So as a federation why would we invest everything in players that realistically Will Not Pro Sport but a hunt trying to top hundred players for me. It does make sense. Does just for clarification for anyone listening? Your Vision for prodigy includes people that come back from college. Tennyson further. Their career and make it and approves absolutely. That's the way I see it or key. In certain instances will have who will go to colleges hopefully good colleges?.

"But my real dream is that in five years time. I would hope that most tennis clubs have been inclusive yet. Approach yet so that anybody who wants to play tennis literally anybody can go to any tennis club in in the UK and Phil. Welcome from being clued. Hey welcome back to another episode of my Tennis Journal. If you've looked at the title of the show your guests at my name is Christy Setzer. I apologize if you can hear me in a car but the way my life is at the moment seemed to be spending more time in the car than any other place so I thought maybe as well utilize that time wisely. I bringing another short. You guessed his name is mark brick and because the carved a career in the world of disability sports man he currently has a company that consults across many different ages and disabilities for is really driving this message of inclusive tennis or inclusive sports. You'll hear all of that in the show. He has spent Thomas the National Wheelchair coach in the UK has worked for the IT EFFORT. Fifteen or sixteen years and working in disability. Sport is very much seen as being about beauty or specialist certainly pioneered in the early days of Disability Sport and wheelchair. Tennis is spending time in the world of visually impaired tennis and I've spent a little bit of time with another coach. Choosing in recent months also does a low working area. And it's really fascinating and you'll hear all of on the show it's clear to me probably the biggest takeaway. I got from this show was. How important is that? We attract follow you an invest in the right people to become coaches and I say that deliberately is the right people. I think the skills you can train adorn but the actual CAC sort of the person you know fundamentally change and I think we're at a tipping point in the World of coaching where this is starting to become acknowledged recognized. So this for me screaming. I throughout the entire podcast. That mark is a genuine authentic person in the world that he is working in his rule of people like that and I would challenge literally anyone that would dare put the skills required to be a disability coach at the lower end of hierarchical spectrum by hit the word hierarchy. I think I've ever seen as a flat surface and having worked with several people in recent months that work in that area they are. World class coaches their ability to adapt to empathize. Understand seek clarification. Work with the person at the center of the journey is second to none.

"I guarantee you younger players that are coming up or coming up with better strengths. Winning and better programs, and even when they get older and get out of shape. They are still going to be stronger specifically in the ways that will benefit their tennis because of the training that they've done up until that point. So I mean, if you're not looking at these things than like, you're gonna lose. It's just a question of if it's now or if it's a little bit down the road. I think there's also that that that if you're not getting better than you're getting worse because the average levels always come to keep improving, and that's just a simple reality. So if you're not finding ways to improve also, then your level competitive averages is going to eventually go down. I feel like we've covered a lot of material ways. I know probably some of the people listening are also themselves. Well, that's that's great Glennon Jacob. You've just told me that getting stronger will make me better at tennis. How? The bloody hell do I do that? And I think that's something that we can maybe talk about in the next podcast. Yeah. Can we should we? Yeah. Especially if I don't hit me. Well, that would be helpful. I know that that probably raised a lot of questions, but a lot of the questions that we've raised the questions to ask yourself and hopefully get some answers to and if you're listening to this podcast, and you've stuck with this long. Then you're the type of person who's going to us is questions and get some of those answers. And hopefully, when we talk about some some ways to strength training in feature episode, then you be able to make use of that to improve your game and winsome a- matches. And in the meanwhile, if you do have questions that you would like to ask us where happy to help you can send me an Email that Glenn at technical tennis dot com, and you can get me at Jacob at tactical tennis dot com. And if you have you can also specific west is if you have specific questions, especially about some of these issues for your own gain than reach out to us on social media.

"So if you magin that you go in and to the gym, and you do a one rep max dead lift, and you know, what that number is. Let's say it's four hundred pounds will how many can you do Jacob in a row. What you mean me? No, I'm saying like, let's say that you're one rip max deadlocked is four hundred pounds. How many in a row? Can you do man? I totally fell for that one. You can do one Glenn. Okay. Exactly. You can do. So. So what happens then if I drop the white to three hundred pounds. How many do now I forgot my chart, but you can do more than one. That's for sure. A lot more a lot more than one. Right. And so that's maybe another way to think about this. So if three hundred pounds is all I can do one time, and I go in and trying to three hundred pounds. Well, then I'll money gonna get one of them done. But if if my friend can do four hundred pounds is one wreck max, he's going to do a lot more on me at three hundred pounds and the same thing the tennis court like if I'm going to hit a backhand. And I am every swing just pushing my maximum I'm close to the power output in my swing close to all. I can handle that I'm going to get ta. Tired of hitting back at backhands very very quickly. Whereas if I have strengthened myself so that I can hit a very powerful back end and still be comfortably below my threshold. Hit a lot more balls before. I started get tired. Yeah. That's right. So most of us judge ourself based on like most of us. We we we make. I'm not sure what the right term is here. But our procedures are perceived ability of our own playing level is based on the best things that we can do. It's not based on. I watched ten matches of myself and took data on it. And then drew what the averages were. And that's how I make my perceived ability. Right. So is it bad idea for me to give golf example hereafter? We just went into into the car thing the swift on tiles done dead lifting. I think that go is Gulf is fine. Right. So there's not there's why not. Really good data on this that the PGA has gone where psychologically they figured out that gophers as a rule draw their own self perception, virtually based on the best round that they are capable of playing. Right. So you have a handicap in golf, and when people self rate, and they make their own handicap, they almost exclusively make it the best that they can possibly play. Instead of the thing that they do on average. Shaw. Right. And so that's a really easy concept. I think for us to look at in grasp it's harder to turn inwards. And look at ourselves and realize that's us. That's you. That's me. That's my my one guy on the tour, and my other guy and the other guy and the other guy and everybody else on the tour. Right, right. Like, it's not something that were excluded from you're not the one in a hundred probably an imagine it's much easier. I think in Gulf at least you do get a handicap you get to play lots of rounds and see what your range of scores is. And it should be hopefully to wide of range from one round to the next. But you actually get information on that. Whereas when you look at tennis players every single time you play the conditions of different. And you're also playing different opponents all the time. So you don't really have even as objective measures Gulf does of what your performance is actually like. And so in that case, I think it's even hotter to get an accurate perception of way, you're Bility's at. Yeah. I think that's exactly right. I mean, we don't have. Anything that's really like a candy cap. We do have the UT our system that starting to come into more use. But that's just reminds me now of these junior players that I talked to and their coaches in their parents as they're playing ITF's in trying to transition onto the tour like I can't tell you how many times I've heard like all my my.

"Of whether or not you have a big fitness problem or not. And so do you want me to keep talking about the learn little engine the con-? I just I just really wanted to get the step test in there because I want to. Jim step test is actually great. And I like that when a lot because I think there's a lot of carryover with it in his kind of funny. It's really simple people a lot less likely to hurt themselves. You don't necessarily max out your effort the same way you will doing a Bruce McCall. So in some ways, it's a lot safer, but you know, stepping is pretty similar to running around in changing direction on a tennis court. If you do it enough, right? So yeah, I do more about the little engine that can't now that we've talked about the step tasks. So we've got we've got at least a couple of options get a real two max test. They're kinda cool. Your learn a lot about yourself. I actually highly recommended I think it's worth the money. If you really really like wanna do that, just talk to your doctor? He can probably tell you where to go. If you can't do that. And you wanna sell test then you can easily Google, Bruce. Protocol and do a little research on your own figure out how to do that at your local treadmill wherever that is. And if you can't do that at all find a twelve inch step checkout, three minutes step test results, and you can at least get a good estimate of whether or not your cardio is horrible. Absolutely. So so the little edge that kind can and alleged I'm going to bring this back to this car analogy because in in some ways is probably the simplest the simplest one. If I take two vehicles and one of them is that little Honda Civic that I was talking about earlier, I don't think actually specifically said civic, but let's let's run with it. And my other one is you know, let's say a Ford f one fifty truck for those of you in the US, but just imagine like a big work truck. That's a flat, you know, like with a bed in the back, and it's all set up for towing. And so look if you take those two vehicles out in the road and just awesome to drive than the city's going to get better gas mileage, right because it's it's operating in the thing that is designed to do which is not putting a lot of power, and it's very light. And it's gonna run. But if we take a very heavy trailer and hook it up to both of them. What's going to happen is the performance? Of the Honda Civic is going to suffer greatly. It's gas mileage is gonna go down. It's going to lose a ton of acceleration. It's going to struggle to reach its top speed at all. I mean, his speed would go down significantly too. But if I hook that exact same trailer up to the truck, it's not gonna impact performance as much. It's exceleron still going to maintain somewhat. It's going to be able to reaches somewhere closer to its top speed. It's going to take less of a performance hit because it has more functional for one of a better way to compare it strength in this in this realm. We will talk more about talk, but it has more functional strength, then the smaller does. And so if you think about the human body the same way except with human bodies, you're out there. Playing tennis match you have a finite amount of energy that you can expand. You don't get to stop at a gas station and put more fuel in. And then all of a sudden you're back at peak performance. Like, you're starting fresh. You're you walk out in the court. And yes, you can try to fuel in the middle of you match..

"But it's not the top priority for everyone right for some people. That's just not the number one priority. Like if for instance, I think if you're working with Rafa. You know, going to the gym and getting physically stronger shouldn't be your number one priority. That's not going to win him the most matches. Right. He sent me. He's not suffering from strength deficiency. I think I think maybe there these this way to say this would be that. I can't ever think of a professional tennis player on the men's or women's sides that was too strong physically to play. Good tennis. But there certainly have been a lot of players who leave performance on the table by not being strong enough. Yeah. And I think that's exactly right. The issue is that we're leaving performance on the table. So I had a conversation with another one of the guys today. And really specifically we said look like this isn't about you having a problem, or this isn't even about just beating the guy that you lost to last time. This is a. About getting the absolute most out of yourself that you can and just to clarify for the people who are listening. This isn't going to be a podcast. We talk about professional plays for thirty minutes. Or now, this just helps give you some framework to understand that even professional players have strength officials. He's a lot of the time that are impact knit performance. And so one of the things that we're trying to do today is to help you answer that question for yourself is would getting stronger help you mo- matches. And so so maybe if you think this is a good time to do this Jacob we could talk about some of the questions that people could be asking themselves in order to answer that bigger question because I think it's that's not necessarily an easy thing for the average listener to to know the answer to. Yeah. Well, if you're open minded enough to just sit back and go away, and and if you just find that you just asked yourself. F- am I leaving a lot of performance on the table by not being stronger? If you just did that then I think there's a few places that you can start from. So this this has really become an issue for me over the last year because these guys made it really personal for me. I mean, you know, that I'm consulting for a few of the guys on the ATP right now. And so it just really hit home. Like, wow. I mean, I just thought this was something I struggled with when I was twenty five. I didn't think that this was something that to our veterans would still be struggling with when they're playing at you know, a world class level. So the most obvious place to start from me is just a ask yourself. Am I losing matches because I'm getting tired? Shaw because a lot of times people out as much because they getting tired. They get into a third set or professional ranks at the grand SAM's, a fifth set and they start losing foot speed. They start struggling to catch breath between points, they stopped making poor tactical decisions their quality of shot goes down. And these are all ways that getting tired would would make you lose matches. But I think most people hearing that question when say, well, if I'm just getting tired that means need to do more cardia, right? And the, you know, the first issue is that getting tired might not necessarily mean that your cardio is so bad, but it could just as likely be strength issue. Right. Maybe to draw a comparison. We might look at like a small hunt Aqa and those things can get great gas mileage and the dry forever. But if you make one thoat trailer, which straining at its limits the whole time, then you're that thing's gonna fall apart pretty quickly. Right. And the gas mileage goes down horribly and all the things that were beneficial about it aren't good because it's it's not really matched up to the task that set before it. And so, you know, you have to look more deeply in more closely at the style of tennis that you play the way that you're playing in particular in the matches that you're losing if you think you're losing because you're getting tired..
