Global news 24 hours a day on air at on Bloomberg, Quick take powered by more than 2700 journalists and analysts and more than 120 countries. I'm Denise Pellegrini. This is Bloomberg. You're listening to the business of sports from Bloomberg Radio. Thank you so much for joining us. We're here each and every week for you at the same time talking to the biggest names in sports. I'm Jason Kelly, along with Mike Lynch. And Michael Bar today. We're delighted to be speaking with Ken Solomon, president of the Tennis Channel, So I have to ask you can from a business perspective. The open is kind of a big deal for you. I have seen you. As I joked at the top of the show in action. You're a whirling dervish to say the least, because you've got a broadcast going on. But you're also doing a huge amount of business. It's kind of the Super Bowl for you, right It really is. I mean, you know, people forget the open for someone like us is much of theirs. Is anyone quite like us who's dedicated on all platforms all the time to the sport? But everyone there the place where the world comes together for really three weeks a year, and so you're in the center of the universe, and we've kind of got a virtual bubble going Not quite literally the way we do now, whenever the open is on its huge all the stakeholders in the game, are there all the tournament from all over the world. Really the tennis royalty, the legends or they're very often with Ian National Tennis Hall of Fame. You don't have to go any further than Flushing and sometimes Manhattan find the entire sport. Well, one thing that is great for you guys. You guys went global in May Guys Aaron, Germany, Austria, Switzerland and it's a great thing for you guys. We have for a long time been asked, when are you going to do this internationally? Because the rial thing that we were able to do for the sport and for the fan and and all those associated is to bring it to one destination. Dennis is a many splendored kind of octopus of a sport, right. You've got multiple tours, multiple events going on at the same time all over the world, and it's hard to follow. And you know the idea of having a central repository where the best matches information, hopefully the original product that we're creating whether it's movies like strokes of genius, or whether it's these Great pieces on what's happening in the Sports Tennis magazine all in one place, and so that you can find out the continuum and the whole Patchwork of the sport that's going on all over the world in one place, Otherwise you're chasing it around and that made sense. Not just here but around the world little harder to put together around the world, So it's taken us a while but launched in In in Germany with tennis Channel International Deutschland, which is sort of the prototype. For what we plan on doing around the world, and the idea is that it's as if that channel was made there so for the region now have the German version of tennis Channel and each one will be Taylor fit for that region, and it will open to wherever you are. When you become of us a driver and isn't very well entry. See, we work with The the the indigenous governing bodies. So the equivalent of the USDA in this case, did you know, storage land and And they instantly the fans instantly know where to go. And it has been going great. Better than we expected. I mean, the pandemic didn't slow us down, in fact, is you guys well know, because you've been doing so well. I've been looking at the numbers. The traffic has been bigger than probably we expected that came out with a bullet. We've had thousands of people sign up and they are now monthly subscribers and, you know, then we push to the local Whatever's going on that we don't have. We felt so it's really been spectacular, and it's a model that will like us here, bring the all the different Stakeholders in the tennis world together who have content to share to one place and that's just kind of in a crazy mixed up media world with unlimited choices is a very good thing, just like they know to go to blue bird for all of their all the information, whether in sports or money, O R. You know how to manage How do you know what's going on on Wall Street when when all the other sports had their restart when the PGA Golf started up when the basketball and hockey and baseball started up the sound of curiosity, or just of being denied for so long? The interest on the ratings were pretty much off the chart. Just a starter. You finding the same thing now, with your restart in tennis. Yes, we were blessed and lucky Enoughto have almost several different restarts, right? Not going off just with a live show with you know the top players in the world calling in which isn't the same coverage but then starting the coverage in May. And building back from, you know, initially a four man and then a four female competitors, sort of round robin where protocols were extraordinarily tight, because no one knew what we were doing. Up through Charleston, which was really another bellwether. We're all of a sudden boom. We were doing bigger numbers with the Charleston event that we did there with 16 top female competitors, including the four Grand Slam winners. Um, we were doing bigger numbers than we did last year with the regular tour, So we were able to prime the pump and keep the fans excited. It was much more of a smooth, rampant just a 0 to 60, and by the time we got collecting tonight, which was the first sanctioned event On U. S soil, Although we were doing Palermo and and all of the wk in a teepee events around the world when we hit black thinkin, and we had Venus, Serena, Coco and you know all the top players. Female players manage most of them many of them we, You know, the numbers really blew up.

"Risk on her line conditions for the virus, so I just couldn't take the risk to travel on. I totally understand why athletes like Rafa Nadal on Ash Party on the women's side, you know, decided they didn't want to make the trip, however, I think with the USDA has done Is to create the best bubble they possibly could, with all the information all the data all the medicine, medical information, and I think the players that air there feel really quite safe. Yeah, well, we can't help but think of current events. These matches follow the Cincinnati which they held on the same court, so players will have to travel Novak Djokovic Tch one, but he seemed No somewhat chase and then you know, he's the one who had the party early on in the pandemic. Players got sick. It doesn't seem to be affecting his play obviously did great yesterday, but it's in the air. Well, I think everybody has unease Novaks dealing with not only what happened A couple of months ago, the tournament he put on quite a few players, including himself, tested positive and they didn't practice. What we know you have to practice to keep yourself safe, but he's also Trying to start a new men's players Association. So he's got tennis politics. He's got the virus. He's trying to win his. Ah think maybe his 19th major title, so there's a lot on his plate. There's a lot on everybody's plate, including Serena Williams, who plays today on ESPN, and she goes after her record timing. 24th major, with everything on her plate plate, being a wife and a mom to almost three year old so and you, actually, maybe it's Stephen. Today is Olympians Birthday so well, everybody's still in with a lot. I know, you know, and by the way, not everyone's happy with Djokovic his plan, But you're speaking of the women now and their 16 year old Coco Goff, who you know, got so much buzz when she won her first two matches of the Open last year. She's out of the U. S open, but she gave that incredible speech in June about the Black lives matter movement. You can't help but think that this might be affecting her and other players. Yeah, I mean, there's enough to deal with when you're trying to just be the best tennis player. But I feel like Theo Young tennis players who are of color are really stepping up to the great leaders. Coco Golf Naomi Osaka. She was the one who stepped forward first last week. In the Cincinnati tournament ended up taking a pause alongside that n ba, WN BA and other other sports So You know you're thrust into a leadership position. You either have what it takes. Or you don't. And in this case these players do And obviously in women's tennis, you have the greatest role model of the mall and Billie Jean King and what she went through in the early seventies to push Women's tennis into more equal footings alongside men's tennis. Therefore, we have a U. S open. It's been played with equal prize money since 1973 by the way, the recent issue of Tennis magazine lays out just how much tennis has been entwined with activism. It's terrific, but tennis is being played and its good tennis ESPN analyst Pam Shriver Thanks for helping us. Bring attention to it. Thank you. Thank you. Roland. Daniel isn't here now. Stay tuned. We d in less than one half hour. It's the takeaway. It's back to school for colleges across the country. Normally everyone has their doors open in there, mingling and now a lot of what it looked like last year has completely won away due to the Fantini. We're looking at whether a safe re opening is even possible. That's next time on the takeaway from W N Y c.

Sabatinis stylish dominance; Nadal and Federers 2006 classic

"Amy Thank you so much for your support and to everybody that bacteria kickstarter at the end of last year which enabled us to carry on all year long and produced the tennis podcast four. You hope you're enjoying it. We certainly are catherine say. Hello Catherine David. Hello Matt. You're right. Hello yes fine. Thank you good. We have had the most wonderful weekend watching old tennis matches from Rome which we are going to really have with you today from nine hundred ninety two. The story of Gabriella Sabatini is extraordinary. Run in Rome for titles in five years and also talk about how more generally she's one of those players that tends to get forgotten. I'm afraid to say including bias. I can't think of many times that we've mentioned the name Gabriella Sabatini over the last eight years of the tennis podcast. And we're going to put that right today. She also turned fifty as well over the weekend. So feels like a good time to do that. And we're going to go back to the two thousand six men's final between Roger Federer and Rafael. The Dow a dare say many more of you will remember that one and maybe some of you watched it with us over the weekend so lots to talk about before we do that. Let's just mention the news of the week. Which is that more? Tennis TOURNAMENTS HAVE BEEN CANCELLED UP until July thirty first on the ATP circuit and the events. The wheelchair events have been announced on the men's side tournaments like a start Baastad Kitzbuehl in Newport or cancel because of the corona virus. And we await to find out what will happen with the American swing in August. But I mean it doesn't sound great so we'll have to wait and see several WTI events until mid-july cancelled as well but no great surprise. I'm afraid Catherine I should say as well following on from songs that could be used for the corona era a particular mention for EJ Stanton on instagram. Who suggests don't stand so close to me from the police. Yep Yep acceptable. Yep that's yeah. I've heard that mentioned a lot of the lowest we were going for more. I don't want to diminish EJ's contribution that we were going. Ooh For more specifically songs that reference the absence of crowd right so rather than sort of general corona virus social distancing song bags which which I feel are. Is anyone else a bit over sort of Korean social distancing song just over the whole thing generally? It's a very very difficult time for cynical people with a dry sense of humor because there's a loss of well intentioned sort of sickly happiness in sort of we're all in this together in we'll come through this and have you considered crafting. You should be crofting. Oh we're GONNA come out of. This is best move well rounded people and you know people that then you bunny the. I'm so over all of that. This folks is Katharine Whitaker. Who has just shown irs her two thousand piece Jigsaw which makes two in a row that she's not together now and she's also about her fiftieth podcast to the air with two weeks worth of dailies to come during Roland Garros Peppy Catherine. Yeah but I'm not. I'm not smugly telling people if you considered podcasting it's it'll make you a better human being during these challenging times. Stephanie my better I have. You always Dunk Jigsaw. No I mean I have on occasion in over the years done the odds Dixon L- but nights definitely I. I'm not doing this to to self improve. I'm enough to pass the time. I'm just impressed. Because not cool or anything they might even be able to hear me through the wolves but my parents started kick those and they're really not very good at them. How can you be? How can you be bad at jiggles? Unless you've got bad eyesight you've done you've done about five of them in the space have been out of the night soaking souls. We're talking two thousand pieces. My parents struggling with five five hundred faces. Maybe they need help just handed over to my kids. If I was doing a jigsaw. There's no why upbeat during it because I just lose know these inch. It's IT'S GONNA sound like one of these awful peppy. People is the IT. It's it's very mindful. It gets me off my phone hawks. Group it it's very it's you can still sort of be watching the telly obviously not physique. And have something on the tally in the background. And be paying attention to it but it gets you off your phone sort of it. Concentrates the mind. Oh God I hate myself move on. Can Multitask is what you're saying? Awesome specifically cannot multitask. So I would say it's a nonstarter. Meanwhile folks we have been putting photos on social media channels of ourselves in one thousand nine hundred ninety two where possible because Matt didn't exist nine hundred ninety two and two thousand and six respectively Matt has created quashed a picture of a tennis magazine on which he as a child prodigy is on the front cover wielding his racket. Like Richard Gasquet aged nine. Except there's no strings in the racquet That's the away so walk away. A few people were taken in by it. It's my absolute probably favorite thing. That's ever happened to me. That people actually think I was on the cover of Tennis magazine. Age Ten it was just at Wimbledon in the. Lta Tent way you could go up and have your have your photo taken in front of a green screen. And they were then imprinted onto ace tennis magazine. And yes they put up there alongside the words the not a the future Wimbledon champion going to all future Wimbledon. Men's having experienced his game. I can tell you what could have happened to a young Merrin Chile church in appearance. Yeah not sure what to say about that. Well he he opened so I'd go with that. Yeah no great. I'm in favor of all. Comparisons to professionals plays a singular. Us Open title is not all Wimbledon. Titles there is it still in underachievement relative. I don't think we're actually doing any matches from two thousand seven for tennis relived. Who knows how long ten is live? We'll be going on. We may have to come to two thousand and seven at some point but I actually went back the following year and appeared on the front cover again. Let's just put it up as a sort of extra what the people working uniform and that one.

"The past tennis tips on not only how create better stroke production but one of the things I love actually just reading kind of about Past Adult League players winners junior team tennis just seeing who was in these pictures from past leagues and kind of wondering where they are now as well as I really. I'm so nerdy that I even enjoy the tennis advertisements. You know I enjoy seeing what kind of products were being sold at this time. Are they still around Just learning about the whole culture of tennis and you know every culture needs to have its own propaganda so we're grateful to have tennis magazine to be that propaganda for us to learn all about our culture. Yeah for. I'm sure there's more than one tennis magazine the Tennis magazine that I get. I don't even know what it's called but it's the free magazine you get when you're US member yeah. It's just called Tennis magazine. It's now called Tennis Stock Tennis. But there's also there's also like another tennis magazine that you could subscribe to which I think I used to back in the day that I don't anymore because once I signed up with the US Ta and realized I got a free magazine subscription. I just stopped the other one but yeah there's so much awesome stuff in there. Which is something. That isn't going to be helpful now. But we've talked about it before. They have the local college tennis schedules. And the back when it's Tennessee's so like for us in so cal like UCLA and US's tennis schedule which is great and there's a ton of stuff like you said. Even the ads like for tennis nerves like us like you get to see products or even the I think Stephen Frugal like tennis. Destinations or something. Like right the money for that. But I like to look at the ads to see like tennis destinations where it's words good to travel for tournaments or for people who dislike. WanNa go play like what you do for a living earliest one of the things you do for a living at the Langham hotel. I'm sure there's people who see that you know. They travel and they want to get their tennis fixing while they're travelling exactly so there's so many places that people go and they WANNA book their vacations around staying at a place where they can get their tennyson. So there's those ads in the tennis magazine is well. Yes exactly and I I really enjoy it. I I do give them away as much as I can to someone who I hope will enjoy it. Some of the past issues also have tech reviews as well so You might read about rackets that were three or four years old and honestly those rackets are just as good as the racket serve releasing today. I really feel like these racket manufacturers. Just have to put out new rackets every year in order to stay afloat. It's not because the rackets are any less quality than they were even five years ago. It's kind of amazing that you know these rackets are really made with such high quality that if there's they're going to last a lifetime for most of these people you don't really need to upgrade you might want to grade but the technology is slightly improving. I think at our level if you're playing ten to twenty times a year. I don't think you'll notice the difference. You know what I mean. Yes so it'll give you a catalog of some of the great rackets that you could try out that you might buy used as well so you might check out tennis reviews that are in some of these magazines. Yeah there's there's so much good stuff well. This was a lot of fun Valerie. I really enjoyed just talking about tennis with you. It just made me feel so much better. Considering how scared I was when I first started this podcast thinking about what's happening in the world right now. Tennis is my happy place so true. We gotTA WE GOTTA STAY. Happy Philip. We do. I really hope this tennis podcast makes other people happy and I really appreciate you guys listening to us just talking about our passion and I hope some of these tips bring some happiness to you because we know that tennis is your passion just like it is ours and we hope you find some really great action items and ideas of what to do in this time of unprecedented chaos. We wish all of you guys to stay safe and please stay off the course as much as possible but find ways to express your passion for tennis tennis tennis yes and just so everyone knows we are being safe. And we do our podcast via skype. Now so we're doing our part. Join US IN THE EFFORT. Stay home yes and thank you so much for putting up with you. Know the skype quality that we sometimes have.

"COM podcast onion a panic guys i Marino county our guest today is nick mccarville he is seen and heard all over the world according as well as on-court emceeing and he got his start as a writer nick mccarville joins us in New York City which is where he lives and we talk about everything from how he got his Argentina's reporting and how he made the switch from writing to being on camera we also go over his schedule and how he manages traveling all over the world as well as his memories that include interviews with Roger Fetter of course who else let's jump right into that interview with Nick mccarville thank you for joining us thanks for having me like our makeshift midtown studio fancy podcast stuff happening or in New York and we caught neck on his way to fly because what else would you be doing it's actually funny because When I was an intern at tennis magazine actually to get an internship at tennis magazine I brought a suitcase into the lobby to go apply as I was of as headed out of town in New York I was there here visiting friends for Thanksgiving and literally twelve years later here I am back at Tennis Channel Tennessee com with a suitcase things have changed but we're still in New York City with our suitcases dragging around makeshift studio so yeah life is good life is good tell us a little bit about post. US Open Life what he's been up to Yeah I post US Open had some time off which was great and then it to Geneva to Labor Cup which is really cool I'd never been to Switzerland which was awesome and it was pretty cool to see that whole set up with I mean is essentially the Roger Federer Copen the Roger Cup In Geneva the fans were so into Federer in Switzerland and I think that when they have that first iteration of Labor Cup they wanted to have it in Switzerland very soon after it started and so to see all of that fanfare for Federer for Labor Cup in Geneva was really cool and I did that social media hosting and some stuff with tennis Australia team that was there and I've been hanging out just like catching on a lot of work stuff that I had during the summer that kind of built up okay so nick I have to ask I am like super huge fetter fan and you know people think that if you're in your home country like they'll probably leave you alone if you're such a big deal but like can he even walk around without being bothered like I've always wondered that Yeah I don't have a clear answer it's a good question but I saw a couple of times we did events within the city and there were like active crowds arounds ederer and obviously you know they opening ceremonies sort of thing at the government building that was really cool and there's a huge amount of fans there I think most of them for Roger and then a couple times we're leaving the hotel he was staying at and there were definitely people gathered around to take pictures and stuff but I did see miracle at one point the kids in the minivan I don't know where they were going but like she was driving which I was like a little bit surprised by was like Oh America's driving the kids around Switzerland which makes sense Ah I we didn't follow respecting America's privacy because I know it's good for me yes I mean that's like a half answer but I think that obviously people everywhere in Switzerland know him know who he is but I think he can still lead somewhat of a normal life esh you get nervous interviewing him because you've done It alive my my most memorable standout Nick Macabre moment is you interviewing Roger Federer in the twitter Blue Room in Australia after he won you also have been Serena select course everyone got to go through the twitter blue room but is there a bit of a different level when you're talking to him or you kind of your professional your cool I mean I'm never professional or cool I always attempt to be both and I fail but no I mean Raj at Labor Cup is so chill because it is his vance right and so he was so easy work with Joe I mean he's always easy to work with but especially in Geneva like I pulled him in for a few things kind of last minute because social media's always on the bottom of the totem pole after the you like TV's and newspapers and that kind of thing so the one that's still gets me a little bit as Rafa like I feel like sometimes rough does or doesn't want to do stuff so I try to be that'd be calculated when I actually asked Ross to do something because I feel like sometimes he's not in the mood to do things I agree I get that vibe and you're not alone there they get that vibe to I'm not even work with them now nowhere near as much as you have but Roger makes things Kinda feel comfortable especially Labor which is what you said it's like he's way more relaxed but ofo makes me feel anxious and kind of makes everyone feel anxious and it's no knock on Rafa either like he is just kind of his personality also comes into a room and he'll shake everyone's hand and say hello and be you know very cordial but I think he's they just have to do so much that I try to be a little more like on my game whereas Roger may be makes you feel relaxed like that's kind of his approach do you do they recognize you does he like South Nick No yeah I actually don't know I I mean I always say hey roger how are you introduce myself every time but I've kind of gotten past the point of carrying if the players know my name I used to like I used to be a thing where I was the player to know my name and I'm just like okay I'm as long as we have a good interview and they feel comfortable and I'm asking somewhat interesting questions than I'm pretty that'd be lovely okay so you've been to all the grand slams so you were at Labor Cup I mean what kind of energy was that like how different from Grand Slam to Labor Cup I mean what are the major differences that you found being there well it's just a completely different event overall fan energy was really awesome and I did Chicago last year as well when it was here which is really cool and the energy in that stadium I the one thing I always sort of given example of Labor Cup because they're still those people out there that are kind of like what is this event and it's so funny it's flooding I mean I I agree with you like we've got to figure out what it is and I think hopefully in the next few years it will but last year in Chicago the entire United Center getting rowdy for Diego Schwartzman that to me is like a pit of misers layup sort of its power but Irene I think it's just a different event overall than a Grand Slam I mean you know it's particular sessions the matches are shorter there's fewer matches it's only three days but the energy is big and the team aspect like people buy into more the demoralized vs Europe thing than I thought they would which is really cool when you're in the venue and it feels like Europe definitely felt like the home team in Geneva which school I love it I was in Chicago last year so I know you talking about is a different different five and as someone working at you feel a lot more comfortable oh I think because there are more comfortable and laid back so I totally get what you're saying but I want to ask a little bit about your star you know I know you started more the writing side than being in front of the era so let's go through the

Nick McCarvel on covering tennis in new ways

"Guest today is nick mccarville he is seen and heard all over the world according as well as on-court emceeing and he got his start as a writer nick mccarville joins us in New York City which is where he lives and we talk about everything from how he got his Argentina's reporting and how he made the switch from writing to being on camera we also go over his schedule and how he manages traveling all over the world as well as his memories that include interviews with Roger Fetter of course who else let's jump right into that interview with Nick mccarville thank you for joining us thanks for having me like our makeshift midtown studio fancy podcast stuff happening or in New York and we caught neck on his way to fly because what else would you be doing it's actually funny because When I was an intern at tennis magazine actually to get an internship at tennis magazine I brought a suitcase into the lobby to go apply as I was of as headed out of town in New York I was there here visiting friends for Thanksgiving and literally twelve years later here I am back at Tennis Channel Tennessee com with a suitcase things have changed but we're still in New York City with our suitcases dragging around makeshift studio so yeah life is good life is good tell us a little bit about post. US Open Life what he's been up to Yeah I post US Open had some time off which was great and then it to Geneva to Labor Cup which is really cool I'd never been to Switzerland which was awesome and it was pretty cool to see that whole set up with I mean is essentially the Roger Federer Copen the Roger Cup In Geneva the fans were so into Federer in Switzerland and I think that when they have that first iteration of Labor Cup they wanted to have it in Switzerland very soon after it started and so to see all of that fanfare for Federer for Labor Cup in Geneva was really cool and I did that social media hosting and some stuff with tennis Australia team that was there and I've been hanging out just like catching on a lot of work stuff that I had during the summer that kind of built up okay so nick I have to ask I am like super huge fetter fan and you know people think that if you're in your home country like they'll probably leave you alone if you're such a big deal but like can he even walk around without being bothered like I've always wondered that Yeah I don't have a clear answer it's a good question but I saw a couple of times we did events within the city and there were like active crowds arounds ederer and obviously you know they opening ceremonies sort of thing at the government building that was really cool and there's a huge amount of fans there I think most of them for Roger and then a couple times we're leaving the hotel he was staying at and there were definitely people gathered around to take pictures and stuff but I did see miracle at one point the kids in the minivan I don't know where they were going but like she was driving which I was like a little bit surprised by was like Oh America's driving the kids around Switzerland which makes sense Ah I we didn't follow respecting America's privacy because I know it's good for me yes I mean that's like a half answer but I think that obviously people everywhere in Switzerland know him know who he is but I think he can still lead somewhat of a normal life esh you get nervous interviewing him because you've done It alive my my most memorable standout Nick Macabre moment is you interviewing Roger Federer in the twitter Blue Room in Australia after he won you also have been Serena select course everyone got to go through the twitter blue room but is there a bit of a different level when you're talking to him or you kind of your professional your cool I mean I'm never professional or cool I always attempt to be both and I fail but no I mean Raj at Labor Cup is so chill because it is his vance right and so he was so easy work with Joe I mean he's always easy to work with but especially in Geneva like I pulled him in for a few things kind of last minute because social media's always on the bottom of the totem pole after the you like TV's and newspapers and that kind of thing so the one that's still gets me a little bit as Rafa like I feel like sometimes rough does or doesn't want to do stuff so I try to be that'd be calculated when I actually asked Ross to do something because I feel like sometimes he's not in the mood to do things I agree I get that vibe and you're not alone there they get that vibe to I'm not even work with them now nowhere near as much as you have but Roger makes things Kinda feel comfortable especially Labor which is what you said it's like he's way more relaxed but ofo makes me feel anxious and kind of makes everyone feel anxious and it's no knock on Rafa either like he is just kind of his personality also comes into a room and he'll shake everyone's hand and say hello and be you know very cordial but I think he's they just have to do so much that I try to be a little more like on my game whereas Roger may be makes you feel relaxed like that's kind of his approach do you do they recognize you does he like South Nick No yeah I actually don't know I I mean I always say hey roger how are you introduce myself every time but I've kind of gotten past the point of carrying if the players know my name I used to like I used to be a thing where I was the player to know my name and I'm just like okay I'm as long as we have a good interview and they feel comfortable and I'm asking somewhat interesting questions than I'm pretty that'd be lovely okay so you've been to all the grand slams so you were at Labor Cup I mean what kind of energy was that like how different from Grand Slam to Labor Cup I mean what are the major differences that you found being there well it's just a completely different event overall fan energy was really awesome and I did Chicago last year as well when it was here which is really cool and the energy in that stadium I the one thing I always sort of given example of Labor Cup because they're still those people out there that are kind of like what is this event and it's so funny it's flooding I mean I I agree with you like we've got to figure out what it is and I think hopefully in the next few years it will but last year in Chicago the entire United Center getting rowdy for Diego Schwartzman that to me is like a pit of misers layup sort of its power but Irene I think it's just a different event overall than a Grand Slam I mean you know it's particular sessions the matches are shorter there's fewer matches it's only three days but the energy is big and the team aspect like people buy into more the demoralized vs Europe thing than I thought they would which is really cool when you're in the venue and it feels like Europe definitely felt like the home team in Geneva which school I love it I was in Chicago last year so I know you talking about is a different different five and as someone working at you feel a lot more comfortable oh I think because there are more comfortable and laid back so I totally get what you're saying but I want to ask a little bit about your star you know I know you started more the writing side than being in front of the era so let's go through the timeline of Nick mccarville tennis reporting career was God because I know a little bit about it but it's it's good you can't see every night and the podcast but she just yawned as you ask that question so I had to call you I'm not I'm sorry I just had a rough night asleep it's funny I know that I shouldn't be ups come on Tell Jet Lag oscillators real so much more annoying than Australia

"Thank you a few clouds today. Not very many, though, low to mid seventy s across the area and will dip tonight into the low. Fifties were at sixty six Santa Monica seventy five in Pasadena right now, mostly sunny downtown, Los Angeles. Seventy two degrees were dry actually for the rest of the week and through Christmas and into perhaps even the new year. So big dry spell coming to these parts. I'm Marco werman. This is the world. Everything's fine. Remember that Serena Williams there the twenty three time grand slam champion. She was referring to a controversy that flared up over what she wore at this year's French Open and was a black bodysuit. A French tennis. Judge later said it was unacceptable and called for a ban. Williams didn't make a big deal about it. And when it comes to fashion, you don't want to be a repeat offender, so but the Women's Tennis Association took note, and now they're updating the rules on a number of things here is the world's Alison Harare. When it comes to what women tennis players can wear to work tennis remains very much. I would say conservative except addresses and the and the skirts are so short that you could hardly call them conservative. That's sports writer, Stephanie miles talking about the reason French tennis federation judge Bernard you to Celli called out. Serena Williams after the French Open last may a tournament. She's one three times. French tennis officials are saying sorry. Serena. There's a new dress code. Next year. French tennis federations, president told tennis magazine that her out that the French Open? This year will not be allowed saying quote, one less respect the game that Steven didn't go down. So well, some fellow players and fans call the comments sexist, racist, tennis, great, Billie Jean King tweeted, quote, the respect that's needed as for the exceptional talent. Serena Williams brings to the game criticizing what she wears to work is where the true disrespect lies. It turns out the black bodysuit Williams wore to work that day. Also had a practical purpose Williams suffered blood clots after giving birth in two thousand seventeen and the leggings helped with circulation, and certainly with the compressive elements to the outfit, even she could probably even get away with wearing it at Wimbledon where they are far more strict if she could prove that she needs it for medical reasons, but now players won't have to make that argument, the women's tennis assoc-. Nation. Put out a statement this week saying that wearing leggings and compression shorts without shorts or a skirt over them is totally acceptable. It turns out there was never a rule against him. And mile says forget the fashion statement. It just makes sense not everywhere. They play is warm and sunny, and so we sometimes play late at night players. Get cold leggings, keep the muscles warm doubles champion. Pam shriver? Also thinks the rule change makes sense Shriver played from nineteen seventy eight to ninety seven. She never wore a catsuit on the court, but she did get reprimanded one time for a clothing violation. I didn't need to go to the toilet jock broad. I just for sure she didn't know was against the rules. Eventually, you realize there's rules guidelines laws are not large but ruled in sports that are just outdated. So that was one the Women's Tennis Association updated another role this week and mile says it's about something more important than dress code. It has to do with players keeping their rankings after maternity leave. So now what they've done is. They've just given the players longer a longer period of time in which they can use that ranking to get themselves back to where they were this change was also inspired by Serena Williams, she was ranked number one when she went on leave when she came back eight months later, she lost her ranking. And that affects when where and who you play in tournaments mile says the old rules basically punish women for having children. Most of the women on talk who had children wait until their careers were done. Pam Shriver did during my era. It was.

Put together a story about her late, father, Lenoir and his friendship with NBA legend, Charles Barclay it. Aired on WB you ours. Only game Charles Barkley's friends couldn't quite place. This mystery guest. He wasn't a basketball player. He wasn't a sports figure any wasn't from Barclays hometown. Here's what I can tell you about him. He wore striped red polo shirts tucked into khaki shorts and got really excited about two for one deals. He was a commuter. He worked as a cat litter. Scientists in muscatine Iowa in short. He was everyone suburban dad more specifically. He was my dad. Yes, true story. Shirley's dad really was a cat litter scientist, but I wanted to follow up with her about another part of the story that struck me your story really kind of got a lot of attention here. In the US. But the comments on Twitter also are really kind of eye-catching one of them said this is a huge moment for quote, Asian, dad culture. What did you think when you saw that? And I mean, maybe just tell us what it means. Sometimes when you're second generation immigrant year. There's a sort of silence between you, and your parents really really hard to still this blank spaces unless you're just sitting down and asking the questions that you know, you want the answers to there's always language barrier issues points of reference that they understand that you might not. But I think there's some funny elements really some people might relate to like the polo shirts. Khaki shorts are two for Wendy this peaked add things, and what about other moments in your own father story that still sit with you. I remember I sat him down and asked him about time growing up during the cultural evolution. We've probably talked about it over two different conversations. And there's so many different details that he just could not convey to me. And now, I'll just I'll never know. Really what that experience is truly like for him. I can only try to understand, you know, how it made him into the person that he was I'm wondering if you know looking at your dad's remarkable friendship with Charles Barkley, whether that's kind of prompted you to think about your own friendships, and what has been undermined. I just want to be able to grief a little bit more. So basically when my dad was terminally diagnosed set up a Facebook group estimate closest friends to send me different letters to send me notes of care, and the send me fuck recommendations. And I've always just loved knowing that other people are thinking collectively morning alongside me because I mean, who doesn't really who doesn't want everyone to know how special this person was so I'm really lucky that so many people are thinking of him.

"Are you a part of it or heard of it's not part of it again. I think the initiative what they what the w j has started is good that ATS as an organization for coaches as well, the qualifications. They are not to the standard that I would like to see. And therefore, I would argue that that program is is not doing Justice. For what it should be doing. And of course, it's a great service. And and we're talking about benefits for coaches to be honest, you know, the benefits should be. That's the player should be guaranteed of the coach being educated, and it should be licensed coach should be having a license or degree in and that should be that should be part of our our world, and that doesn't exist. And and therefore, I think just to have it. It's not it's not that. I'm happy. That's the TA for the first year has now come up with a I would I say title of best coach of the year, and and Sasha has received the coach of normal Osaka. And I'm glad that they recognizing the coach then I'm happy about because when I started I from the. Beginning felt that the coaches were not getting any recognition and did not we're not valued by the organizations like ATP, and the WTA where I believe that the WTI NDA to be have an obligation to their players that they have to provide them a pathway, if they have been a player and have the Embiid to become a coach, I think the player is the best investment that can have to provide that's investment that have made all those years into players that have played on their tour and for them to become coaches. I would you know, I totally support that and and even include a pension fund besides becoming a, you know, a professional player make part of the pathway to become a coach and extend your pension fund to a later stage in your career as a professional coach in this. What I would like to see. Even both under WTI the story. So you mean like a player who was on WJ could then become a coach with the help of the WJ that what you mean? Oh, I like that. I think that makes great sense. I think one of the hardest things is seeing what to do after you stop playing at how to how to adapt and that would be a big a big support. So so you're also the co owner of orange coach dot com. What is that about? And what does that four and how did you get into it? And why yes, orange coach has been part of a little bit of a mission statement for myself, many years back, and I remember very clear, and I I don't know if he will remember, but Tony got sick the agent of Roger Federer. And that's I'm an agent for for. I am g I mentioned to him. I said, you know, I wanna start a coach's organization that can represent coaches and and create opportunities for coaches on tour, and he said, you will never ever get. And he's been pretty strong about it though. Ian. And and he may be right. But I feel that the coaches are making progress. So I started orange guards based on that ambition. And the other thing is that I got my job by little advertisement in the American tennis magazine that I got my job in Japan, and I wrote and I got my ladder back two months later, and at the send the facts with a follow up, and I had to send a picture of myself. And I said in today's world in the digital world thing can be so much easier. And I wanna give something back that I know is so valid to so many coaches out that are that one experience to to travel the world and not so much even on tour, but even to be at a hotel resort or a country club or a federation in another country. So we created orange coach with the MVP to provides the biggest last form for a job placement. And. And so far we extended that with two different sports with battle tennis and field hockey, we're planning to start with soccer basketball and goal. Just to you know, expend their rises for coaches Worldwide's and provide the service, and I still looking to the future in growing the the the business but also the the pathway for coach because I never when I was a little little boy I never saw that pathway..

I don't we can talk about this crazy sport tennis. But I get an Email out of the blue last week saying you have a new position, which sounds very impressive. Tell tose what you're going to do. No. I am the director of player development at I'm g academy. It's somewhat interesting because I was sort of the first student. That's I started place in some ways. And you know, that was nineteen seventy eight not to be dating myself. So quite a few years later, I end up back here again and kind of doing what I love. I mean, I'm they have great coaches. I'm impressed with the program pressed with the kids, I'm a little surprised I was expecting them to be little. More spoiled than they are. But they don't wanna learn they all want to get better and nothing more rewarding for me than helping someone that wants to get better, that's sort of much fun. And I don't have to do. I'm sort of overseeing. So I don't have a group that I'm in charge of. So that makes it even easier. I can go in and tell them the most important things they need to work on and come back for five days later and see if they've gotten better. So so how does that work? You went down there as talented junior. There's this eccentric coach with the Italian last name who's a great motivator, and maybe a little less skilled with the Xs the nose, but he knows how to ring talent out of young juniors. We're talking about you. And Nick how does that work now though? I mean, what's what's the similarities and differences over the last forty years? You mean from this place is it the same drill with you know, everyone's got a phone in their pocket. Or is this totally different. It's different totally different. When I when it all started. It was more of nNcholas the tennis director at the colony beach and tennis resort which was the number one tennis resort and in the in the US. Anyway, it would get voted by tennis magazine, all the time. But I didn't know who Nick was. And there was no kademi the guy who owned the colony was from buffalo, which is where I'm from originally. So that's how I ended up under the on a ten. I ended up there on a tennis vacation with a bunch of buffalo tennis players used to play with me. And Nick out a look at me and saw they had a different forehand. Then what everyone else was hitting. And those days I was twelve and hitting it hard swinging. So Nick got excited invited me down to me out of school that lets us out at noon which in. Those days there was no home schooling. And I was going to school for clock like everyone else. So that was nice, and I got get away from my crazy tennis parent dad, which was also nice. So I came and I talked to the top ten kids top twenty kids in the nation and sixteen I went to Kalamazoo when I was thirteen and talk to those guys and Paul Annacone was one of them, but ten ten of them at least came and all of a sudden CAD top juniors top American juniors all in one place started getting publicity for it. And you know, eventually it's turned into what it is now. But when we were when we started it was more of just we do a couple of drills. We only had a couple of courts, so it would be eight on accord, and you hit two balls and run to the end of the line, then running place for five minutes. So it's your turn it to balls. And then at the end of the day we play a little bit..

"But that's what we used to call them at tennis magazine, and it was a big deal. We were always looking for those at the magazine is doing an article about an event. It's not all about the. Players, right? He's an experienced to be had there. There's a lifestyle and they need photos to illustrate that. The the US open program uses those, you know, because that's part of what they're selling is the experience of being there. So there's absolutely a call for those photos if there's not a match going on, but the lights pretty Absolutely. I'll walk the ground and I'll I'll look for things. It gets challenging, especially, I've shot the US. This'll be my twenty second or twenty. Third US open that I've shot and the grounds change, but not so much that every year old look at all these new photos to do right. It gets hard after a while to find something I found when I was shooting especially doing the same subject matter for a long stretch of time. What are some of the things you've done to sort of fresh up your eyes? So has actually been a couple of years where I said, I'm not shooting any on Beyonce's. You're just to get away from it and then come back, you know, with Russia rise and other time does bend times. I've, I've tried just try something that photographers don't do or that sports photographers don't do. I remember one. In year, I had made it a point to find some rules to break over bad boy comes in, you know, find a rule to break. I remember 'em in the middle of this tournament and I was up in the upper reaches of the stadium shooting down on the court. And I, I got up there and I said, okay, I've got to go to the left so that I'm not shooting backlit. And I said, well, we'll wait my whole point. This year was the fine rules to break. I'm going to go to the other side of the court and shoot back now. When I say backlit, this is the son bouncing off the court and right into the camera lens, which is just the why. Why would you put yourself through trying to figure out that exposure and deal with that? And so I'm up there with a big lens and I had a drop in polarize or filter. And so he's putting the polarize her in. It did such a great job clearing off that court, getting all that reflection, auto, the glare, really rich color and shadows coming at me and was able to produce in these really dynamic compositions that I had never done before. Four. And so it's things like that. Find a rule to break, you know, if you find yourself saying, no, I shouldn't. I'm not supposed to do that. Then just go do it and find a way to make it work. Can you offer any thoughts on where someone just getting started in tennis photography or trying to up their game can sign outlets for their images if you just want to, you know, get into it. I would say the the, the smaller publications are really good. You know, the town publications anyplace place. If if there's a college that has a tennis team and it doesn't have to be professional tennis, there's very good tennis that's easier to access the smaller tournaments. But one of the great things about a tennis you can shoot it, you know, you can as a ticket holder, you can get next to the court and shoot. So just go practice, you know, practice and get your photos out there like it would be restrictions for somebody coming in with with a professional Cameron along lens. If you're not accredited be depending on the tournament DOS open doesn't they don't want people bringing in Amman a pod, but there aren't particular restrictions against still photography. Sometimes you might have a security guard who doesn't want to bring something in because of some reason that might be something going on. I remember a few years back, Michelle Obama visited, you know, and. You know, they have the latitude to change security restrictions too, depending on something you might not know about..

"What about night games in the lighting stadium, leading the challenges, anything that easier? It's easier now it used to be before digital. Nobody would shoot the night matches unless it was a huge match. You might have an Agassi Sampras match and used to. Well, of course, we're going to shoot that we don't care what the light is, you know, but even then, I mean, again, you've gotta shoot fast shutter speeds. You'd have to get. I mean, but the the standard was he would shoot Fuji press eight hundred push to stops and it looked not good. You know, like eight hundred speed film. And you know, but that's the best you can do now. I mean, the cameras are are so good and the lights are better. So that combination. I mean, I'm still kind of pushing the limited the camera, but I can go out there and shoot it ISO sixteen hundred. You know what the good camera like the defy and in get crisp images that look good on a glossy color page and the program and still get a decent shutter speed. The lights are better. What? What kind of lights are they? Are you dealing with color Castelo switching, tally diesel or anything, frankly, ever to imaging. I haven't heard anything about the the lightning changing. I will say that the the tricky thing with the light at Arthur Ashe stadium is that for some reason, you can't see it to the naked eye, but the corners are darker. So as a photographer, you see, because all of a sudden this photo looks half stop dark. But as a fan, I would be surprised if any fan noticed it. The question about the. I guess the editorial side of it when when you want to go and get a photo published, do they look for? Let's say Serena makes a great, you know, winning shot and but you have a great shot of her from earlier in the match. Do they care that that that you didn't get the winning shot? Because I know in other sports, you may have a great shot of somebody doing somebody from earlier in the game, but if it's not the, you know, the news worthy moment of it that photos not going to get published that played on tennis the same way. It depends on the client bit, depends on the media outlet, what they're they're looking for. Sports Illustrated might be very interested in that winning shot the the people I shoot for science on shoot a lot for the US TA in for the US Open program and does a book company. I do a lot of work for now world tennis magazine. Some websites they're more interested in having a pretty photo they wanna photo over the player looks good, especially the US open because this is the premier event, and this is the showcase of every. Thing they do. So they want the player to look good. And one of the interesting parts of that is they have to look fundamentally sound. So you know, you shoot a player like Venus Williams, who's incredibly athletic and make some shots that you can't believe, you know that should makes..

"So the phase detection autofocus is better for tracking that fast motion as of now. So the mere less uses contrast based, right? I know that you merely cease to be terrible, but it's quote up a lot, but it's still not not agreeing side. I would say, you know, even even with the high end DSL ours, there's ones that photography that tennis photographers in particular won't use because you just you're the ratio of frames and focused, not unfocused isn't good enough. You know, I, I should primarily with the defy an very rarely have a photo that's out of focus unless it was my fault and and use continuous birth Motola when you're shooting. I always have it on. I don't always use it. I wanted on for the for the option to be able to to shoot. Sequence in, but I'm usually shooting single frames and and I've tried both strategies because. And there's nothing wrong with either strategy. You know, some some photographers, some sports photographers will just lay on the shutter. Something happens. They'll lay on the shutter and get twenty photos to pick from, and that's fine. You're, you're guaranteeing yourself something right. I tried that at one point in my career. In fact, I spent an entire US open with that strategy just to see what happens. It was good for me. And what I found is for me, I ended up at the end of the tournament with the same exact number of good photos, but a lot more to edit. Right. Oh, so I figured if I'm gonna get the same yield anyway. Let me just use the method. I always have of picking my moments to shoot, which also for me, has more creative satisfactions because instead of looking into the good shot, I decided when shoot and I created a sense, go fishing with a shotgun. So you really? I mean, I guess it depends on the tournament and the time and the place and the noise. But you are reluctant to shoot during serve is at not at the US open. It's funny because I still feel a little weird about it because I traumatized, I used to shoot Moore's don't really shoot small tournaments anymore, but I used to early in my career. I worked at tennis magazine for ten years on a shot more smaller tournaments. They're so it's always something that's still in the back of my head, but I know what the US open. It's okay. Yeah. The only time that you might not want to do it as if you are shooting bursts and you had asked about the quiet mode. Oh, if you're shooting for a magazine like like tennis and you're shooting an instruction article, you might need a sequence. Yeah, you know, and shooting like that and a serve. I could see. I could see again, I haven't seen a player complain about it, but I absolutely would understand if a that being more distracting than just a few random clicks..

But for French tennis officials that catsuit apparently went too far Bernard, you Celli the French tennis federation, president toll tennis magazine, quote, it will no longer be accepted. One must respect the game and the place end quote, well, the public pushback with swift and severe people calling. Judah Celli and his decision to ban the catsuit racist, but in a press conference earlier this week, Serena Williams tried to play down the controversy. Everything's fine. Could you explain the situation? Yeah, yeah. I've, I've since found other methods in when it comes to fashion, you don't want to be a repeat offenders. So a while before this even has to come up again, while Serena Williams is graciously brushing this off. Judah Celli has given no concrete reason for banning the cats who thus far beyond that respect the game phrase. So it is impossible to avoid the questions at all. This raises about race about gender in about tennis culture. So this hour on point Serena Williams that catsuit and challenging the limits of tennis tradition. You can join us on air or online. What do you think about the French Open or French tennis officials, banning Serena Williams catsuit. Are there certain tennis traditions that just need to be respected and do those traditions helped define the culture and what it means to play the game? Or is this an example of how.

"That is our goal where we engage with the coalition in Yemen in as a general statement, we stay out of the war are. Shelves and we are focused on defeating ISIS and Al Qaeda in the Arabian peninsula. That's what we do where we conduct operations Defense, Secretary, Jim outta speaking at a news conference today, you're listening to the world. I'm Marco werman and you're with the world. The US open kicked off last week in New York, and one of the favorites to win the tournament is twenty three time grand slam winner. Serena Williams. But over the weekend Williams was in the news because of something else. The black bodysuit that she wore back in may during the French Open. Here's what she had to say about it back then. I had a lot of problems with with my blood clots and God. I don't know how many have had in the past twelve months. I've been wearing pants a lot in general when our place so I can keep, you know the the blood circulation going. So it's it's a fun suit, but it's also functional so I can be able to play without any problems. So just to be clear, that's what Serena had to say about her catsuit back in may during the French Open, pretty straightforward fun. And it also helped Williams deal with blood clots from pregnancy. So why are we talking about this? Again, three months later, Eva Wallace covers. Sports with the Washington Post, and she joins us from New York. She's at the media center at Flushing Meadows. Abe of the French Open is behind us. Tell us why Serena Williams bodysuit some would say catsuit has now resurfaced. Yes. So I'm the president of the French tennis federation gave an interview in tennis magazine recently where he said that the French Open would be instating this dress code and that strain Williams catsuit that she wore this past may would be on the banned list next year and something that he kinda followed up with was he said, you have to respect the time in place in the sport. So it wasn't just this issue of they didn't like the look. He brought in this whole issue of respect an implied that three in his outfit would have been disrespectful to the French Open the sport or the fans, something along those lines. The French tennis federation president Giudicelli even said, I think that sometimes we've gone too far. Do you see this as another case? It's happened before where Williams is singled out? Yeah, and it's kind of hard not to see it from that point of view, her body, how she dresses, how she looks. On court house. She acts on court has been something that's been discussed really throughout her whole career. The first thing that I thought of was when she was just kind of getting on court in the late nineties and early two thousand. She and her sister Venus were singled out over the beads that they wore in their hair and then on Saturday to press conference. Williams was asked about Judah Celli statements. Let's hear what you said. I don't know exactly what he seemed to say didn't seem the or what, but I we already talked. So we have a great relationship. So we talked yesterday, and so it's. Everything's fine. So ever you tend to the press conference. Were you surprised by Williams kind of distancing yourself from those remarks? Yeah. You never really know what you're gonna get with three, no, with things like this, she can either absolutely go off and delve into those issues of policing bodies and not embracing different types of bodies on the tennis courts. So she can either really delve into that or the other fifty percent of the time, three shots things down. And that's what she did on Saturday. She didn't necessarily invalidate any of the issues that were brought up around the catsuit shoes just saying everything's good here, and she also added that. She's sure if she had a chat with the grand slams if they realize that the suit was for health reasons Schuster they would come to an understanding. It was almost kind of a power move against all of the other grand slams little bit and that way. So when you say those comments, don't invalidate the bigger issues here..

So secure the bagging, get Aaron, Donald parent. Donald is the Rams Rams. All right. So let's go maybe now without it, somebody who maybe it's not the team or or the individuals that I'm going to mention who should do the adulting. Maybe it's all of us because I think it's a very childish narrative that has been created around the dominance of the New England Patriots of who gets the credit. Is it TB? Twelve? Is it Bob, Kraft? Is it Bella check? Who's getting the credit when whose legacy will be? Can we just stop and just all adult up and recognize that the three of them are all amazing what they do. Yes, absolutely. This is a team that I think has we saw the south worker sham and Tom Gino report, and we kind of a lot of people push back on all. They win too much for this to be true. And then as every little piece of that story began to be supported by the things coming out, it became clear that their win. In spite of all of this. And I don't know if the news that we just got that Tom Brady's trainer, Alex Guerrero was allowed on the team plane. Again means that they're taking baby tiny steps towards actually figuring this out. But if they are, I think you're right. They need to adult because it would be a total waste of an incredible franchise and incredible group of talent that they have only for a small number of years left for for petty, who's the top dog to slow them down. Our last one here I'm gonna go out west in Seattle with Russell Wilson with Pete Carroll Carol comes in with useful youthful exuberance. He's raw raw p he gets everybody fired up and they had a lot of success. But the legion of has done. They've got disgruntled guys in the locker room. Richard sherman's gone. The that era is over and it's time for them to adult up time for p. Carroll to adult up and realize this is Russell Wilson's team. Let's build around him. It's no longer about our defense in Pete's ramrod, doing yoga and playing fun music and practice culture. I'm gonna go ahead and half. Say mood on that one because I agree with you, but I also have to buy Felicia because I don't think it's going to happen until Pete Carroll's out of town now because he's not a good coach, but because I think his voice has gotten tired there. And so I'm gonna mood and by Felicia you. I'm also going to say, you know who most needs to adult is the bucks, get Jameis Winston out and start over mood on that Spain and Fitz or a member of the French Open last year, right? When Serena Williams ceremoniously came back. Triumphantly came back from childbirth, not only childbirth, but near death in a fierce black catsuit that she was wearing in part because it helps her prevent future blood clots from forming, which is what happened after her pregnancy, that nearly took her life and also described as something that she was doing for all the moms out there that had a tough pregnancy and had to come back and try to be fierce in the middle of everything. She said it made her feel like a superhero. It was pretty awesome. And apparently it was too awesome. It's being in bits on ESPN radio, Ben lines in for fits. It was so awesome that the French Open is banning it. In an interview with tennis magazine, the French tennis federation president said the tournament will be instituting a new dress code starting next year and that the catsuit will be on the banned list. Because quote, I think that sometimes we've gone too far, it will no longer be accepted. One must respect the game and the place, Ben thoughts. I'm shocked that somewhere in France, people were not open to the ideas of creative expression and moving the cultural boundaries forward..
