"Is interesting for me again keeping the remember when like personal. This is where we spend a lotta time. We're we no longer see it as player in the flesh for the rest of the year.

Match like we have like a night of looking like may fifth rewatch korean baseball together and adopt the nc diagnose diagnose in the how camps dyno's jeff passan his pinkerton behind him and stuff like that. So we're on our own and you know doing our own. Things have watching not only connect. Whatever we're doing to keep ourselves sane afloat and tennis players meanwhile are like having these very different ways of coping. Go various out most of them. We don't hear from at all right muslim. Just go off grid. I will say that that's absolutely true. Most of them have just shut off so the ones we hear from early the outliers right but also larger the more prominent in late april or even it was late. March was already in march. Like it's poss- put up this flog of himself alone. His monica apartment. Where in this yellow raincoat is like stream of consciousness thing where he's like losing his mind like he doesn't know how to function he's also like not with his family that's sort of like argument or something in their various flares that we saw earlier in the year with mentioned that. Adp cup saying like his mother like you know the him at a press conference basically so he's on his own journey there and like some the first things we see some of them are really positive like we see like venus williams during this year's one of like sort of a low key like warning actors like bit role but like remember remember when venus williams got greek or damaged optic flasher. Exactly what i was gonna say. What a queen. Venus harass gregoire showing ads dramatically colossus the ground in performance ecstasy and. It's just a lovely moment of venus is like having a really you know again. I felt bad about similar to the fire. Donation topic like rating people on. How they're handling this thing. But like venus is somebody who like really like seemed to be like at peace like really opening up being way more talkative than she had all year like. There's one of the things. I found him looking. This is skipping ahead like lexington. She does like after she beat via. First round gives this unbelievably a few sive. Chatty postmatch interview. It's just been so mike which is like for the last several years in terms of what she's like in not being very revealing a reticent to share too much open up too much has been very different venus so we have that now the other hand we have things emerging like you know. Say this the novak djokovic stuff where i quietly. He's talking about or on a certain serbian channel. He says things that are if not definition of what we consider antitax at least vaccine. Skeptical in vaccine. Chilling say. I don't know exactly what to put in. Then he touching these instagram wives which you know venus is doing flirted with record time of the people in and and and if only judge just flirted with dmitrov harmless he could've done it was right therefore with an option. This is the college novak where instead he by early he was doing his a few instagram's With turbine jafaria wellness grew guy to joke. Which is somewhat credit. I don't know exactly what happened here. They stopped by mid mayton one more. After basically i people started started combat. For what ridiculous nonsense being spewed in them so we just all tennis players like what a tennis player was tennis star celebrity without the thing that makes them why we care which is tennis. Excellent right and we're left with these pictures of people who stop paying their coaches right away was a big theme like all these top top players stop paying their. That was a really big. That was a really bad really was mentioned a few times and it really explain like because you you learned about it and yes no. I know. I was really struck by how within days. What was it like before the week of in usama. How fast set move your mortgage. That players immediately. Cut off the payment to their coaches who they are the sole employers of in there not not almost all like Every coach was estimated was more than ninety percent of coaches. Weren't getting paid at this point. It was it was. That's fine but i'm just saying when you say that oil like ebay. But but you'd only coaches were not getting paid and it just sort of like selfishness of tennis players end. We see tennis players as being very focused in very driven motivated and in this pandemic must have a crisis a lot of times that revealed that turned into self centeredness self-focused self-centeredness turn to selfishness. Turn to lack of care for other people right and to me. I saw this sort of across the board cutting off of the payroll department of their personal tennis. Teams their coaches who are people who invest their whole careers in helping you do well. The second you stop getting you missed one check. They get cut off and a lot of these players. Have making lots of money. Didn't have to bisley anyway. It me the wrong way seeing these these athletes granted. They're not in a fixed salary. They were not getting guaranteed income but for them to immediately cutting people's pay very quickly and even like occasionally federation like tennis. Australia started for furlough employees very fast and that bothered me a lot too because they had a full twenty twenty australian open and they had a folk coffers and they i think by i dunno april or so. They're already furloughing employees. I thought that was crazy. And they're going to be painful full prize money in if they go it in whatever a lot of the mountain workout and just a lot of a lot of.

Why US Open Day 4 Felt Like A Grand Slam
"Primarily, stay for an predictions are all over the place on earth has happened today I mean. I woke up this morning and his feeling pretty good about my life. In prediction therms. Was Thinking about. Yulia potency of somehow in the quarterfinals, she's still going Alexandra Sandwich one the daily thing for me today, and you know, and then Miller round which has gotten lost and he was in the semi finals. And who else lost today you Hannah concert I mean. What are these people doing? Don't understand? Well did you have been you McGrath Renewal Final David? No that didn't some people some foolish people someone days, I couldn't possibly name. It makes you feel any but I haven't. I haven't looked through everybody's submitted predictions but I rather suspect that at the very least meals roundish today his stunk up a lot of people's prediction dreams. Honestly why does everybody? What are we? What are we all fall for this week before the tournament results think. It's just irritating. It was all we had to go on day. There's been knows tennis six. Full. Well. We should know better. Is All I'm saying, well, it was summed up beautifully by A. tweet that. Hanging was it one of our tweets today? It was really good saying that thinking Oh Gobi Migori the maybe it's no surprise that she lost because she hasn't played any tennis of any kind in six months and then going Opitz photonic Barranca that beater hasn't played any kind of Tennis v three years. During the time she was birthing and raising a child. I did a double take when I saw her name in the draw. Because I'd completely forgotten that she announced that she was coming back to tennis because she did it on the day that tennis was shutdown back in. Time and was abysmal the actual day I. Think it was the day Miami got caught off that she announced she was coming back. I presume she she's not. A big believer in sort of divine signaling. Because if she were, he would probably take indication that you shouldn't bother. Yeah. Thank naming slightly bad that I didn't actually know that she'd been away. That seems to have passed me by somehow. I just like to say congratulations to Fontana Bronco who have always enjoyed watching play tennis I just thought she retired. Gaping hole you felt for the last three is quite a finger on what it was. Yeah I, mean I've put her in in the past I've put her in various quarterfinals that have just not come to fruition. So I've got a bit of a beam abundance about that. If anybody's wondering what all this predictions is about basically when we crowd fund our podcast, every December we have a predictions competition that our highest level backers can enter and lots of them did and we've had a wonderful competition and I was going to win it like I did last year. And then I'm not winning it because things are not going heads. So Yeah I don't know what to say. Really let's start with Peron cover over Maruta parameter loves fast tennis matches doesn't she and? Parole Garbin immigrants who I think she started the match quite well. Tiled away dramatically yes. She was up break Mugabe, Reuther, but this is what? Does. This is totally in keeping with what she's been doing throughout her whole career, which is occasionally just having having a run out of nowhere where she takes out some seeds she's beaten should beat Venus Williams impact tobacco Wimbledon's, and she's also beaten Venus Williams another slam. She's a bit of a seed killer She's got an incredibly flat backhand and forehand, which she will occasionally slice and ruth did. Did Not. Particularly like that I actually thought the competed pretty well I thought she. She paid okay. She wasn't awful an but. Really. Had A had a way to mess her up and. This was this was the kind of match that she came back for I. Think she said she was looking for these feelings again on a court. So it was it was nice from that perspective. McGrath came up with a great word in her press conference she said. She said, he needed to see where she was tennis typically. Which I wish I thought was brilliant and that's because she didn't play any warmup event to the US Open because of her the line call injury kept out of Lexington and also the western and southern open so As. Much as Catherine back to to get to the final I think I had earned my quarters or semis. It's perhaps awesome. Not that surprising that that she's gone out early especially when you consider she was up against. An opponent who can do this kind of thing

"Tennis is back and it is back courtesy of to tournaments in Lexington and Prague. which have taken place over the last week that meant that Katherine Wichita was presenting tennis on television once more Matt's round of applause for Katherine. How good was she? Splendid. You've made me do around of applause well, holding microphone in one hand is difficult but Katherine. Presenting, tabby look very, very easy as she does. Did you do it.

At least we'll be something for everybody to watch. But the the event itself in. Lexington am I right in thinking that that was Put. Together in about a month's yeah I believe four weeks. Was the time line. Say, John Saunders, the tournament director over there they had some from Octagon, the management company and they do or they haven't passed hosted a challenger event. So they do have some experience of hosting tournaments but it a very very. legit respect, low level and they they three together this this tool level event four weeks notice. which.

"There's a bit of a blind spot for me in this period where I feel I, don't remember the matches that well I don't even remember. That many of the the statistics in the title holes and insightful. I didn't realize gaps in Venus. Williams is see for instance, which which we've discovered on earth all this, but what a what an absolute joy to relive that match that we've just seen fantastic gaps in Venus Williams TV. Well. Hasn't. She gone four years. It's time time gaps. Yeah, yeah, and. I kind of I know, she's won seven major titles. I didn't realize necessarily how they were clustered. And there was a period where she was the dominant player in the world for a couple of years, and of course she won five Wimbledons as well, but I just didn't realize it was that. Law in her in her career in terms of winning I remember this period of Venus would end his career s of two thousand and five, two, thousand eight when she won three Wimbledon's in four years. They person who would just bloom during Wimbldon, and then not so good at the other slams, and she was always kind of elusive in that way I felt as someone who you know, this is now very much in my. Tennis watching memory and you know it was just interesting how she was so good at Wimbledon, but less less dominant, the other slams and that's something that will hear Lindsay Davenport. Talk about that later, but yeah. I mean two thousand and five is the first. First Wimbledon nowadays the sort of phrase that will disgust both of you especially David Five I would, and then I can remember and. Just remember my my teacher primary school, just putting it on at lunch. Break just for me to sit and watch while everyone else outside which sounds like quite sad scene now like that, but actually I was I was really happy in those moments. Just what Wimbledon Primary School on my. That was uh, that was kind of where my my love for tennis was built I. Think and yet this Wimbledon I do remember watching. Have, you had any of those Catherine where you've. You Call Tennis Kathy when you in school have you have you had any way? You've where you've sort of either Sutton modernise? May Have you ever. Let's give less of you ever. Have you ever found ways to watch tennis in? Circumstances where? You, know nobody else is doing it and it's awkward, but you. You know you're going to do it anyway because it's that big a deal. To my level, since two thousand as levels in two thousand and three I, remember they. They made go back to school post as levels visited. The the syllabus was over. We take our exams and I. Remember there was like a three week period where they may just go back to school, and it seemed entirely pointless. Just I took two weeks off to watch Wimbledon. And I I don't. I remember my parents being sort of on board with that, which was really enlightened parenting on reflection I very much appreciate that. I remember watching the Goran Ivanisevic Pat. Rafter t thousand one final in the school's it room. And they kept it open for me. Off To school finished, it was it was me and go cooled Hannah Blakey. And, how? We! You know we were friendly, but we were friends, but we share that moment together. If you're listening. Thank think she is. and Oh. Gosh. Yeah I mean my my teenage in university is. Littered with experiences like that because. My family tennis fans, but I didn't have any friends that would tennis fans or really even particularly sports fans I was this curiosity. You know I. Remember coming into the Common Room. One day think it would have been again. Two thousand, three, hundred, thousand, four, and I was exhausted because I stayed up all night watching the USA. I been rained off all night. And I stayed up anyway just in the hopes that some tennis would be played. And I remember. My friends licking me like an alien saying, you stayed up all night to watch rained-off tennis. I, said Yeah. We'll see you put it like that. It makes me sound like crazy person. Yes, yes, is interesting how? In your school and university days, you would have to miss something to watch tennis. For me I often went to the lesson, but would sort of balance. My phone sort of. Like on my pencil case, the teacher couldn't see it and just have the match playing the lesson or during the lecture or whatever it was. You know whether if it was on BBC. iphone and I had several experiences. Where have sort of accidentally? Yelled out in the middle of a lesson, because someone's just a brilliant passing or something, and I'm sure I'm sure teachers were aware of it, but I thought I was sort of getting away with it, and there was this moment of danger of watching tennis in a lesson and like. My brother sent sent me pitchy Dave of his Home Office setup. Yesterday was the day that cricket returned in the UK and he had a screen setup showing the cricket, which was exactly in line with his laptop camera. Say that we're watching the cricket. It would appear as if he was just paying extremely close attention in zoom meetings. How many people do you think there are across the country that have gotten that up going on? They didn't have phones when I was at school. Well, that's what I mean Yeah, that's what that's what he was really. Gently guessing David he just didn't want to. Didn't have them at university either but but there was a calm a single common room where I do remember watching. Pete Sampras against Jim Courier, nine, thousand, nine, hundred, five at the Australian Open there was another one where I I convinced a pub in Col- mole to stay open in the is to let me watch Gregor said Ski Against Pat Rafter in the US Open final. And then there was the university lecturer who I convinced to use the college video recorder to. The one thousand, nine, hundred ninety seven match at the Royal Albert Hall between John McEnroe, and and beyond Borg in the first ever champion's tour event. The before I started working on it. Just because I wanted to shit. When I joined the ATP, year year later, and had no friends in my first week. I went into the office the office at. Midnight on a Sunday with an entire cooked chicken, which I bought from a Deli in the supermarket. And I had nothing else. Just the chicken and I watched an eight and watched a Alex Corretja against Thomas Enquist in the Indian Wells final. On my I in the middle of the night. That is the behavior of a madman. Does four examples of many I. Tell you that sounds like sort of barnaby with the swords esque behavior. We haven't veiled the name Barnaby to our listeners who remember the Samurai Sword Collection in Cornwall on the farm, but yes hello Barnaby. All hundred, League listening somehow. Maybe! A because it's I think it's probably the the best women's final. Ever Is that safe to say I mean it's it's. It's the longest, but that doesn't necessarily mean mean the best. Having watched it back the the persistently high level from both players especially given the style of tennis that both playing, which is pretty. High Risk Tennis.

If I could collect, they used balls of the practice, so they could be resolved to charity. I thought that was the best job in the world and I could not believe my luck and I went back the next year as as head bull. Store Assistant I was GONNA. Say You assumed to be promoted? Yeah, that was my first promotion and that I was GONNA. Ask You if you did a good job with whether you got a good review. Turns ends. It did I mean there's not? Much that can go wrong with putting balls and have been bank. But it didn't go wrong, and honestly I just. I thought asking asking. Tim Henman if he was finished with these tennis. Balls are just so. That was the coolest thing in the world. I thought I was the coolest person in the world getting to do that job.

Yeah, not too much to report really. Just getting on with it properties. Getting on. Roy David vs your this must have been your first years of freelance. Yeah left the ATP by this time, and I was going off to tournaments on my Just trying to wet for anybody you'd have me and yes I remember covering Rome shortly before this French. Open that. We're talking about right now. member covering Serena in interviewing hair and yeah is it was an interesting time? To be covering the sports in that way. And I. What's My I in that year for BBC Radio Five Live? So yeah, it was the start of a very different chapter. For me! And Yeah. There's so much going on in the tennis world. There was this crossover Rivera's, wasn't it? Because we we we still saying these head to head rivalries, but this one became more and more prevalent with every passing tournaments, and just to give you an idea of what else was going on in the world at that time in two thousand to the Queen Mother died. The all spoons premiered on MTV. Tamil Tigers in Sri Lanka. Government signed ceasefire ending nineteen years of civil war. And fifty percent of the UK population by now have Internet access. That one's for you Catherine thirty. Keep it partridge. What would I need to save for it? NOT TO BE PARTRIDGE? I was just thinking before you said the Internet thing always thinking Oh. This is on tricky today. Of taking a step up. and. Go my favorite bit. Getting used to it. So tennis wise. At this point, we have moved on a year from yesterday. Show when Jennifer Capriati when the French Open title, the rest of that year was dominated by Venus Williams. Who Won Wimbledon and the US Open beating Serena in the final? What has happened so far in two thousand and two Matt Well Jennifer kept `priority has defended her Australian Open title a tournament which Serena had to miss through injury and Venus Williams loss of the first ever to Monica salish. still whenever I see that Monica was still going strong in two thousand and two. That always kind of amazes me. Yes? Then they get on the hull courts and Serena really starts dominating. She doesn't actually she doesn't actually lose. A match competed national hard court in two thousand and two to start the season both sisters. Boycott Indian Wells for the first time following the racists incident in two thousand and one. That's a boycott that would go on until Twenty fifteen for Serena Twenty sixteen for Venus. And, then Serena gets her first tore level where against Venus in the Miami semifinals, six two six two and then announces a South was one of the favorites full the French, open by winning Rome beating Justyna non Jennifer Cat `priority so. That definitely you know. Venus is obviously dominated the before Serena's now really becoming a force Worth I'm actually wrote that they were threatening to tiger is. I think that being in terms of what tiger woods was doing. Ingolf at that stage just become such a dominant force and they were the they were. They were the driving force in the game. They were the biggest stoves, the biggest stories getting the biggest crowds and actually align i. read his that. Talks of combining the tools though bit like we've been talking about recently with this with this merger idea, but it was very much. Kind of the pay and coaching the Women's tool to relocate Ponte Vedra where they had their head offices and. Thinking that, it made sense for the ATP. Jomo thumbs alliant.

"I'm Saying Goodbye": Maria Sharapova Retires From Tennis at Age 32
"Don't know if you share my sentiments. This was news. That is not remotely surprising. We were all expecting this. I think Most people had already pre filed. The Maria Sharapova retires column and yet I gotTa say it feels you know an hour into this but Feels a little weird definitely I. This is not like Last time we had big Sharipova News at SL which was of course it. Two Thousand Sixteen and that that was a big surprise. This like you said I think we all saw it coming. It was a matter of when and not if so for to be now is I think a pretty normal timing given whether she's going to play Indian Wells and Miami probably would have kick started her into the French and Wimbledon and then sort of. You're playing out the year at that point so for her to call it quits after all. Cheyenne this little gaps. Seems to make sense but I don't know what do you think? Yeah ranked ranked three seventy three. Something had to give here. This is a five time major champion. Who you did not think was going to play the wild card game for very long. I I guess I would perhaps suspected she would have played Indian Wells. It's an event where she's had success. It's two hours from her home in southern California she would have gotten a grand sendoff But you know this. This is I had these two competing instincts with Sharipova. What what do we know about her? She is fiercely. Driven fiercely competitive. She is and always has been. I think we can talk about this a bit later. The consummate professional and those are really dueling instincts when you're ranked three seventy three and not playing it anywhere near the level that you're accustomed to Part of you probably says I can fight through this. This is just more adversity. I can overcome. I'm better than this. I just need to work harder. I can get my body right. I can get my mind right. I can get back. I don't WanNa go out like this and another part of you says surely I can't have this indignity. I can't be losing round after round early. I'm not seated so I'm playing tough opponents. My Body's giving up on me so I think you had and they came from the same place but they're two very different ways to react to to the same core instinct and today she said enough is enough. I mean I think you're right that You know February is a strange month in tennis. And I guess you know we're we`re. There's no perfect way to retire from the sport and we see even within tennis players very differently. Some players go on this goodwill tour and some players like Caroline Wozniacki says look. I'm going to pinpoint this as my last event and go ahead and prepare your tribute reels. And I'm GonNa play this event knowing when I lose my last match. That's IT and Sharipova. We've seen other players. There's players do this as well. Sharapova pulled us out of the blue and it's it's a Wednesday and she's not at a tournament today And retired in her own way. So I don't know I mean the other. There are a number of questions that stem from this whole conversation and jump in any jump in anytime here. I mean I think the overall question when a player retires as we assess legacy I don't know particular bullet points. Jump out at you Jamie. I think I think highs and lows complicated legacy Of course is going to be attached to share over The the craziest thing I think if you look at the timing now she's ranked three hundred seventy three which says absolutely nothing about her career but to your point. I mean she was at the point now where she was trying to come back and she's nowhere even near the top one hundred You know not even winning any matches and it's it must be really hard for her honestly to you know given all that she's accomplished. I think we said thirty six. W titles obviously the five Grand Slams all these rivalries quote unquote particularly with Serena Williams which is also another interesting conversation to have but I think it was probably getting difficult for her to continue to be you know struggling and Her her legacy given you know the the MELDA NEOM and the ban will always thou always be part of her story? Yeah I think you're absolutely right and today should be happy day. Celebrate a five time major champion. I mean I was looking at her staff and I think we forget how good she was for for a variety of reasons. I think to the casual tennis fan. They were misled by two. One is the head to head with Serena that you reference. She beat Serena Breakthrough Center women. Final Two thousand four and then she loses whatever. The math twenty two is the derived. So lose eighteen nineteen matches to Serena Williams And I think that to the casual fan that we say rivalry. And then we sort of have to amend that to say with a lopsided rivalry which might be an oxymoron. The other thing about Sharipova that I and I wrote about this that I think is a great Sort of misleading bid about her is she had this regal disposition and she endorsed product after product. And it was very upscale. And it's Evian Cole Haan I remember you. I remember walking in New York and seeing her on three different billboards for three different upscale products. And there was this or of elegance. She was selling herself as much as she was a brand. She was selling sort of cosmopolitan posh elegance in yet. The tennis was. I was called her sort of tennis. Gym Rat I mean. It was not elegant tenants by any stretch and Jud admit to that and she was in her own way your own six foot one inch which she was a grinder and she was not what you call an athlete. He wasn't a graceful mover. She did not play graceful elegant tennis and I always thought that was really to her credit. That you'd see her on the back court and she'd be doing her footwork drills because she knew that was an area to improve and she would be working on her serve which always gave her fit in part because of the shoulder injury and she would grind out matches and she would win tough matches. She did not. This was not the female Roger Federer and I think tennis fans of course know that but I think casual fans see all of this aura of elegance and assume she played that way and that wasn't the case at all I mean the the screaming grunting grinding sweating. You'll brushing the hair that had managed to her forehead. That's the Maria Sharapova on the tennis court has an athlete And I think you know again I want to just this should be a day to give credit to someone who had a tremendous career and five majors. Yes but thirty six titles almost forty million dollars you got to number one. I mean this is really an a-list career and you know she had the misfortune of playing. At the same time Serena Williams and there was a lot that went into that relationship beyond the tennis. That probably did not work to Maria benefit but you take away. Cerita you take away. Venus Williams seven majors. Maybe Justine Henin. Maybe Kim Clijsters and I think it's very easy to make the case. Marisha published one of the top five players of the Post Steffi Graf of the last twenty five years and tennis so this is really a remarkable career. And yet as you mentioned if we're going to talk about her honestly. This wasn't the way it was supposed to end. Which is you know a a doping ban. I thought a very clumsy handling of the doping ban. I thought it was very out of character and off brand of her to have been so sloppy. Not just in the violation but then in the aftermath and how it was handled and some of the the the the press conference that we referenced and she was never the same player after that and you know co correlation is not causation and may simply have been that. She was a little sport and she was in early thirties and players get older. We see this on not just in tennis but in in sports in general I mean thirty two big number in in women's tennis but it was not supposed to end with a doping band and a ranking that drifted deep into triple figures so overall macro great career hall of fame player but there is a tinge I think of bittersweet. There is a little bit of disappointment. That This wasn't the way this hall of fame career was supposed to be a gift. Compare what we saw a month ago when Caroline wozniacki is out there on the court and our families there and she's toasted and all of the players are making tribute videos and were. She's crying but she's saying I'm not sad and she does. I mean I talked to her the following day. She was all gussied up because she clearly had been doing the spots around. There's definitely a difference of a decision on your terms and decision that was made based on your body and The time of your career. You know it's it's very different in comparing into. What was the Yankee especially given those? The Yankees recent title in Australia just seemed very full circle for her to do that. this again is random but also very expected. I think one of the things I always sort of liked about Sharipova was Her personality in in two ways. I think we talk. You talk about her on the court sweating grinding shrieking. I mean everyone. I think even if you're not a big tennis fan you know share Provo. Because maybe she made you mute the TV while you're watching a match and that's something that a lot of people will probably joke about but you know she worked hard in the court she was always like fierce and and you know a competitor for sure but she also you know. I remember processors and and interviews where she's actually has a very great personality and and you know quite opposite of that fierce competitor where she could be funny and she was actually Kinda Witty and and You know there was a a side to her personality. That was very likable. When most people on the court probably saw the opposite so overall she's a huge name. In this sport she's one of the handful that transcends just tennis you you mentioned her and she needs only one name There's only a handful of those type of athletes so I think She will definitely be missed. I think we're fair to
Coco Gauff stuns Naomi Osaka at the Australian Open, taking a straight sets win in the third round
"Cocoa Gov. We talked about her the other day and how she comes back in matches says he dropped a set but then as the comeback. He's done incredible number of times the two years. She didn't need that today the fifteen year old over Osaka six three a six four defending champ. Kp what does it mean and are you willing to say the future is upon us of course futures are put us. You've got to love the cocoa right. Look what she did. She extinguished will stock of their. Who beat her? The last time out in a in a in a slam She got by Venus Williams earlier. She's advancing quicker and faster than anyone thought. We've had three sixteen year old winters winters. I believe in the women's side and Slams Austin and sellers and so that's what her opportunity is here. Right now with Serena out of the mix of course course is still there who beat her last time out so she's got to get over that and then some other really good players out there but this is a chance for history right what he page which you can see improvement. I mean she's the only player very joe neither side men or women to get to the third round and win in in three majors or I three majors so you could see the improvement. Let's look at her serve. I think that's the most important thing that I saw was that she was the last time she did lose. Who's she was around? Forty five percent of first serves seventy five percent in this batch. I mean think about the difference there that we're talking and her experience now that she's able to actually do more things because she has been here before he does not. She still has nerves. But we saw with a double-fault twice in a row except that she's going to improve on that as she goes along becomes. It's absolutely remarkable just historic the numbers. I mean she's the youngest player to beat a top five opponent on the tour and nearly thirty years that was Jennifer Capriati Serena who came forward but actually the number that jumps out to me. The most Tony was seventeen eighteen. That's the number of unforced errors. She had which was about half of what saga had. And I think signifies the level of poise. She's playing with which must be infuriating. ASAKA UH admitted. It was infuriating losing to someone that much younger than her. I know some of the fellow panelist today show. How about that Thursday? I'm just glad we're not talking about how Osaka might never win again. because she got beaten by someone that sheet so easily chip you and we're talking to mean to menas point Most of the players that are in the Australian junior open right now are older than cocoa golf off. That's how young she is. She's doing this at an age that we just haven't seen before and everybody's points are valid the poise. That's there the ability to play without too many errors in the future is

Similarly in two thousand nine seventeen year old Melanie Odin beat a series of top ranked opponents making it to the fifth round around the US Open. How did these newcomers do so. Well one factor. In addition to stellar play could have been there meteoric rise in status both prior prior to and during the tournament opponents seeing the newbies names climb in the rankings might have been somewhat psyched out. It's a phenomenon that Duke University researcher researcher. Hey Mont Cocker calls status momentum. If that wasn't getting women do you.

Wherever hierarchies are formed and disrupted especially in the world the business his team conducted several online experiments simulating real world business scenarios to investigate the psychological mechanisms behind behind status momentum.

Serena Williams, Martina And Kevin Blackstone discussed on Around the Horn
"What a win mean gene for Serena Williams Kevin Blackstone wow more accolades Serena Williams. I mean it's just unbelievable that she just continues to dominate her sport. Now at thirty seven years old will be the oldest woman ever to be in a major slam final s remarkable that she's come back from her pregnancy giving birth having a life threatening situation in terms of giving birth and not only that I think really really cool thing is we started out this tournament talking about cocoa golf who by the way talks about her her mentors or her her idols being Serena Williams and Venus Williams and the fact that she looked up to him and said that when she beat Venus that's the only time she's ever cried in a met so you're not gonna see her greatness but you also see early Greg I sold as it would say Wimbledon. Miss Williams is dominant. She's all the way back. She's made it to a vinyl since giving birth but she's she's is in better shape right now in today's match she she won all but three points off of her first serves. She's getting her per serving and if you're not getting yours in it is over because she's going to jump all over that this is dominant as she is looked in about five years. It's going to be very difficult to beat. What's amazing is after all this time? She's the greatest ever she's still the best women's player on the tour. That's what's remarkable. Bob Ryan with all due respect to Martina. I don't think there's much doubt any longer who is the women's Tennis S. and Franken Serena Williams. She is at such as level now going doing what she's doing and commanding attention that she's commanding for all of us that you're going to be. We're not we're getting real close to the following. What was the name sister? They were hers again. You know we're almost there and I mean she's setting yourself apart that that is an incredible statement. I just made but I'm standing on your steady gone so you think she's left Venus so far behind we can just let's not let's be Venus behind. She's hid has had an incredible incredible career but we're talking about Serena here Clinton Yates and specifically coming back after the pregnancy last year the life threatening condition during the pregnancy last year. She didn't get the winds in those finals last year. How important what is it for her to finish the deal this year I think is relatively important but I think what all this shows that she's doing this for one reason now reason that's important which is for her? I think for a black woman in a position she's been in a leadership when she's been in such a spotlight is also very very difficult for people to realize that this on the human individual. Let's not forget what happened in that final. She cried on the court in front of the world. It was something that was a very emotionally riveting moment

"Nobody Asaka and bless her. I think this is completely to her credit. She's won three titles for her career. Indian Wells and a pair of majors never won a clay court title. Let me let me spoon feed. You Speen spoonfeed you, another name as we we go down the list spit, Lana coups, nitsa, former champion, always a few years ago, a decade ago, but get m- might I just show give push c-a-b-a workout in the second round. Definitely. All right. Good, Venus Williams. Can we just say can we can, we just have a moment? Unseeded, but no good. Absolutely. I mean, we I don't think it's really discuss enough. How great you know we talk about Serena, we talk about Fedor, but Venus is out there. And she is she is older. And she's still going along here and you know props props Venus, totally with you also say, you're right. We, we talk about cerita at age thirty seven Venus. We forget is the older sibling. I think she's out here why she out here because she enjoys the competition is you're gonna win this tournament unlikely. But I give her for a lot of credit this nonsense. I wrote about this, this week about this nonsense of telling athletes when they need to retire and tarnishing reputations. We need to retire the phrase, tarnished reputation VS Williams has not want to major in more than a year. I mean more than a decade and you know what it is not tarnished anything. All right. You're saying you're saying hall. I'm saying push c-a-b-a not particularly bold or going with the, the top two choices. Neither of us particularly likes the one seed in that unfortunate draw. She has any other parting thoughts, or remove onto the men and say, I'll give you one more unseeded KiKi mount benefits, because only because I would like to see her and her new coach. You know, figure out she, she beat Belinda bench few. So maybe something brewing there. I mean she at one point was to two years ago. Yeah. People were picking her to win the turtles. Yes. So I think that that's a lot. And we kind of saw what Sasha had done with NIO me so who knows like that could call. All right. Let's go to chemo. Denisovich is significant other is a contender on the men's side. That is our way. Let's look at the men's draw. My leading question to you is helping upset is at Jamie if the doll joke of do not play for. The fifty fourth time two weeks from us Sunday in the final a how big upset do you assess that as being in be who is the player or players that will preclude them dig upset. I think I think we're sort of underrating, how much is at stake for all these players now that I looked at the draw and kind of diving into this, this lead up into the French Open is kind of really good on the men's side. I mean there's, there's a lot and we talk about Nidal not really having as good of a clay court season. He typically does leading up to the French, but, you know, he did get a win over Jovic. So maybe that set the record straight bit. But Jovic is going for a second career slam. Right. Ford awro which is pretty incredible. The is going for twelve that's pretty incredible. Well to very incredible and federal. Is back. And although he has only won the French Open once a decade ago, which is a really long time. Remarkable that he's still kind of in the mix and he's he will be like the wildcard in, in all this. So, yeah, I been ever sort of reading the tea leaves wise Roger playing the clay and think what are the reasons honestly is because he's been playing some really good ball lately. He was not necessarily not outstanding clay court season for Roger. But again, he hasn't played the French Open in four years. Not the greatest draw. But this is a guy who can play his way into turnament..
