"Right, Charlie pellet there. Hey, we're going to talk about the Serena effect as in Serena Williams because, man, a huge audience tuned in on Monday night to watch what could have been the last singles match of her decorated career. We know it's not. And then we've got doubles with Serena and Venus tonight and then Serena's gonna keep on playing. Yeah, Friday night. It's expected to be a did you see the tickets for that? No. I mean, try to get one ticket, it's over 400 bucks. I got a badge that gets me in I'm not worried about ticket prices. Over 400 isn't gonna get you very good seats, him. It's not even. I think 4000 is gonna be a lot better. All right, well let's dive into the economics of this. We're gonna find out about this. That voice you're hearing is economics editor, Molly Smith. She's still with us on site here at the U.S. open. I also want to bring in Martine Paris, U.S. consumer reporter at Bloomberg news joining us on the phone from San Francisco. Molly, I want to start with you because you wrote about the costs associated with the U.S. open. Everything is more expensive, but there's this different effect happening this year, the Serena effect. Talk about ticket prices because they're off the charts. Yeah, it's really just reflected in the matches that, of course, Serena might be playing in which have been the so far Monday, Wednesday night and now Friday night. Sessions at ash, which are just, I mean, I don't think there's an empty seat in that whole stadium. There's 25,000 seats in there. There's no way. One is untaken. And yeah, she's going to play playing tonight with her sister Venus and the doubles remarkable. There's never been a doubles matches early on the tournament on ash under the lights. All right, Martin, come on in on this. I'm thinking about getting a honeydew as soon as we're done with this. What's it going to set me back? Oh my God. Well, it's up 10% this year. It's costing us $22 per drink, but I understand you get to keep the souvenir cup. Is that right, Molly? That's correct. And you can either get a regular drink on the rocks or a frozen one. Oh my God. So no refill though for less money. Definitely. Okay. But Martin, this is going up. I mean, we're having some fun about the impact of Serena, and it is certainly impacting ticket sales and the cost of it in certain those matches, no doubt about it, but I mean inflation is hitting the U.S. open just like it's hitting the rest of the world. Yeah, double digit inflation. That's right. Yeah, it's pretty remarkable

"Osaka slips in straight sets while Venus Williams. Also false in the first round. Dave Preston, WTF sports The top stories we're following for you this morning on WTO, the Justice Department says classified documents were likely concealed and removed from a storage room at former president Trump's Florida home as part of an effort to obstruct a federal investigation. In a late night court filing, the Department of Justice lays out the most detailed chronology to date about the months of strained interactions between justice officials and Trump representatives about the documents. U.S. life expectancy dropped in 2021 for the second consecutive year falling by nearly a year from 2020. A government report blames COVID-19 for about half of those deaths. The beltway sniper case could be going before the Supreme Court again. Last week, Maryland's Court of Appeals ordered that le Boyd malvo will be re sentenced because he was a teenager when he committed the crimes. The state's attorney general may ask the high court to review that order. Stay with WTO for more on these stories and just minutes. 8 47 now in a convoy of jeeps carrying UN nuclear inspectors is now crossing Ukraine headed toward the Russian held zapper issue power plant, both Russia and Ukraine have accused each other of bombing the area near the facility for weeks now, increasing fears of an accident or a radiation leak, the groups reportedly received explicit guarantees from Russia that the 14 experts would be able to work there. The power plant's been occupied by Russian forces and operated by Ukrainian workers since the early days of the 6 month old war. It's 8 48. Back to the traffic center with Rita Kessler. We're still sitting in a myriad of delays throughout the area. A lot of the delays just volume delays. It seems like everybody's trying to get in some work before the holiday weekend. Now, here's some of the out of the ordinary things that we do have going on. The earlier wreck on southbound three 95 before 95 has cleared, but if you're still seeing a little bit of a delay there, that is going to be why. Northbound 95 delays out of Springfield headed on to three 95 toward king street, or leading on to the inner loop of the beltway. The problem on the inner loop is after Braddock road with a crash in the left lane. Outer loop of the beltway over top of four 50, there have been a crash over on the left shoulder now that delay has been pretty constant all morning long, so there may still be something left to look at that outer loop backup is near Richie Marlborough road and off of route 50 trying to make your way toward four 50. The inner loop after three 55 before Connecticut avenue, the left lane was blocked with a broken down vehicle delays begin on southbound two 70 year old Georgetown road that delay also heads on to southbound three 55 near pook's hill road. The work was along the right side. Now in the district, northbound in the third street tunnel near New York avenue there had been a broken down vehicle in the left lane inbound east capitol street near 55th street a report of Iraq, Alabama avenue at naylor road, had also been a report of a crash. Also a pretty sizable backup on the inbound suitland Parkway still today after silver hill road headed toward the light at Stanton road, which usually happens when there is a short timing traffic light there. So watch out for any problems there at the intersection of suitland and Stanton. One 23 near chain bridge definitely seeing delays headed toward the chain bridge that was a report of a crash, route one or Patrick street northbound after Madison street was a report of a wreck the earlier wreck in Ashburn east about 7 after the loudoun county Parkway has cleared those lanes are open, one 17 in Maryland, the Germantown area clopper roads still closed between great Seneca highway and matini road for the ongoing water main work.

Fairfax county is still dealing with trash collection problems. Board of supervisors chairman Jeff McKay tells fairfax now residents have reported for months that pickups are not happening. McKay says private waste haulers have blamed a shortage of drivers with commercial driver's license as the main reason for the miss pickups, but he says he's skeptical about 90% of all county residents and businesses have their trash and recycling picked up by private haulers who are paid by individual residents or homeowners associations. The remaining 10% have their trash picked up by fairfax county. 7 48. Back to traffic, and Rita. Well, it's a slow go throughout the area a lot and delays throughout the area, but we do have a problem right now. A lot of callers checking in, eastbound en route 7 in the Ashburn area is after the loudoun county Parkway, the single left lane may all that it's getting, but maybe what is all good that is getting by the crash. Now, looks like we're seeing delays on route 7 eastbound, pretty much from Belmont ridge road or before Belmont ridge road trying to make your way past the scene in Ashburn. You're going to need to give yourself some extra time to get through there. It is eastbound 66 that has the delay before two 34 business headed past 29 in centerville. You'll also find the slowdowns on 95 in Virginia, northbound, after two 34, dumfries road into wood bridge that after you cross the Aquaman through Norton in newington, then northbound three 95 slows in Springfield on to three 95, that delay is solid all the way to king street and then the volume from The Pentagon to and across the 14th street bridge in the case bridge headed onto the freeway. A new problem on three 95, but in the southbound direction it is before 95. The two left lanes are blocked with that crash. So we're starting to see some delays forming there In Maryland and prince George's county, the delay on the inner loop is before saint Barnabas road, headed on to I two 95 headed past laboratory road. Outer loop delays are now back near route four all the way toward route 50, not quite as far as four 50 so that crash activity may have in fact cleared southbound 95 is crawling after the ICC all the way onto both leaps of the beltway. The inner lip delay takes you pass route one in college park, the outer loop delay had you toward 29 coalsville road, also the delay on inbound suitland Parkway is before silver hill road, this is solid to the light at Stanton roads. There may be an issue there, southbound D.C. two 95 slows off a 50 in the BW Parkway making your way past east capital street. Marlo furniture's Labor Day sale event is the biggest ever in the best time to buy is now, say 55% off beautiful furniture plus fast delivery and 48 months no interest financing at Marlo furniture.

In Virginia, traffic I'm moving a slightly better even though we're still dealing with a crash in Centreville, a northbound 28 right at I 66 at last report, it was a single link getting by either about to reopen the rest of the lane, so traffic should be moving a lot better on that northbound side.

"On the court. Yeah, I think I wore some outfits that at the time maybe I was comfortable with, but now I'm very uncomfortable with and had a wish I would have never wore, but I'm like what? I wore this dress once in a head like this kind of like this like a lattice kind of cut outs and I just think it was the wrong thing and it's like yellow with like this print. I think maybe I should have just not done the lattice and just kept it like without that one time I had this thing where I would want it to wear lace in the corner and I wanted to feel like it was on skin so I had these new shorts under and it caused quite the hoopla because people were like is her butt out? Like why would I go in court with my butt out who does that? I feel like the tennis community is weirdly more particular than other sports about how people look. Did you ever feel that way? I think tennis though is one of the sports where you actually get to wear between tennis and golf we actually get to choose what you wear in a way. Other sports it's a uniform. So there's no doubt what you're going to be wearing this year next year or ten years later. But in tennis, it's constantly changing. So there's a ton of interest in what players are wearing. So, okay, let's talk about the sun. On the court, you're like roasting in the sun all day. And you have paid in some insane conditions. How do you decide what you're going to wear on your skin? Like, what is going to hold up? Well, in the beginning, I didn't wear sunscreen because I thought I was immune because I have darker skin, I have much more sun protection. It wasn't until my mid 30s and I started thinking, oh my God, I'm going to turn into a raise and I haven't protected my skin at all. I got so nervous and I looked over on the court next to me and I saw Serena like wearing sunscreen and long sleeves and I thought I don't know. I'm really gonna put why didn't she tell you? Like what you didn't like converse about this? No. Maybe she didn't know I wasn't wearing it. So I'm like out there just wild and crazy in the sun like most of us are right in our youth. And I waited a long time. So with sunscreen, I didn't start till much later. Okay, when did this kind of education start? Did you sorry if I go make a little redundant here? But what was the tip off? What the moment I'm 41? So I think I started this around. Maybe 35, it took a while. It literally was just me looking over at Serena. And seeing all my one day just dawning on me, oh my God. She's wearing sunscreen. I'm not. And getting really scared. And I'm still scared of this day. I'm gonna turn into a California race. And remember those raisins that used to like dance. Of course. The singing dancing, yeah, like they were like a Quartet. I feel like we're all the same age group. And yes, that song is stuck in my head. I think it is. So how did tell us about 11 by Venus Williams? So how did this all start? Surely you started buying some sunscreen or talking to brands about sunscreen. Yeah, I started buying sunscreen. I have an active wear brand called 11 in our whole purpose is to help people pursue their best self. And through the lens of being active and through wellness. And if you're well, then there are the skies and limit to what you can pursue if you are not well, you know, whether physically mentally, emotionally, it's a burden. It's very difficult to get through the day, let alone start achieving goals, let alone start helping other people. So that is our goal at 11 to pursue your best self and go past attend to an 11. So since that time we've also started our sunscreen, we've partnered with credo to introduce our son serums and now we're introducing some more game changing products. We've also launched our lip balm for that comes in several different colors, varietals, if you're crazy and you want to get crazy and wear red, you know, you can do that or you can just be plain. So now we're creating some face and body lotions for serious sun protection. And when I was wearing sunscreen it always had a horrible cast and I would go out there and it would look crazy and who wants to look like that, but you know you roll up to the tournament and there are filming you before you go on court and you've got crazy sunscreen on. So now I don't have to do that because we have our own sunscreens at 11 and with credo. I didn't know what the story behind the name 11. I love that. They love it. It's about physical and mental wellness. That's really important. It is. I also just say I think it's interesting you call it on your website, SPF beauty is like the vertical. You have your fashion and whatever. And I was like, yes, make it part of beauty and fun. And like you said, with colors in the lip balm, even though there's also sunscreen, because people still think of it as medicine, you know? It's like a chore. It's like, you know, it's like flossing. That's how I think a lot of people think of SPF. Far things worse in SPF. But can I ask besides sunscreen when you're out there? We were just talking about the Florida heat. Is there anything else you're thinking about, okay, I had this braid style in and there was gel, and it's melting down my face, or I had body lotion on, and it's getting slippery in my racket hands. And it's now, was there ever issues besides the sun protection when it came to ascetics? I just think about like if my ponytail was too tight and I was trying to beat someone in competition, that's all I'd be thinking about. No, I'm not sure. You can focus. Yeah. Hopefully you're using the right product so that way that maybe you've tested them in practice so that way you're not going into a match trying all new stuff doesn't work. I mean, even right down to like earrings, like if I'm wearing some earrings that are like bigger or heavier, I tested and practiced her so make sure they're like not hitting me in the face or they're not too heavy. Because going into the match, I don't have time for all the things and I don't want to lose an accessory and have to take it off who wants to do that. Yeah, so do you do like would you do a dress rehearsal of same outfit, same beauty routine, same breakfast and then play a dress rehearsal game almost? No. 'cause it's less about a dress rehearsal and more about like the tennis. So it's like, it's very minimal. I don't necessarily wear a lot of makeup. I've seen some girls putting on foundation on the court. I was more or less into eyeliner. So I would wear my eyeliner on the court and I had some eyeliner, and they don't make it anymore, unfortunately. And every now and then a girl would ask us, like, what eyeliner is that? And then I would be like, I have an extra one you could have it. You know, in the bag. Now I wish I had those eyeliners. They don't make them anymore. What kind of it was like this milani? Eyeliner was waterproof. It was incredible. It was like, you know, it would survive a bomb..

"Everyone, it's fat mascara, I'm Jess. I'm Jen. Welcome to the big interview episode. It's Friday. You clicked on the button. You know who's here? Venus Williams. In the stood. In the studio, Venus Williams is one of the greatest tennis players of all time. I was looking back through her accomplishments and I was like, I mean, we need three hours to talk about them, but basically 49 women's tennis association titles. She's been ranked number one in the world. I've never been number one at anything. She's won 7 Grand Slam titles, and she became a professional player at age 14, which is just something to think about. She actually talks about that. What were you doing at 14? She's also the chief executive officer of the interior design firm V star interiors. She launched her fashion line 11 in 2007 in 2020, she launched 11 by Venus Venus at credo beauty that's a mineral based sunscreen line for all skin tones that is divine and she's on the show now because she just expanded that collection. So we thought it would be fun to talk about all things. Well, first of all, sunscreen because Jess and I can never get enough of that. But all things beauty and wellness, is there anyone better that you'd want to learn about wellness and beauty from? I think not. I just have to say I felt really, really happy when we wrapped up the conversation because Venus had me, I left our interview. I got to say, I'm not a sporty person. That's not a secret. But Venus had me feeling like with a champion mindset at the end. Yes. I've got to tell you, I didn't think that Venus is going to pump me up. Any we're going to have a really nice conversation about beauty and SPF and all that. But I left feeling like psych. Venus trained me. Me too. So enough from us, let's get to the interview. Welcome Venus Williams. I'm so excited to have you on fat mascara. Welcome. Thank you, ladies. How are you? Good. What's gorgeous where you are? Sunny and bright and beautiful. Yes, that's the joy of Florida, but it's about to get hot and rainy and scary soon. So we'll get you further before the storm rolls in. So welcome, welcome. I want to talk about fashion and beauty, which clearly you're an expert on. What was your first introduction to the world of fashion and the world of beauty and taking care of yourself who helped you with that stuff when you were younger? I would say my mom definitely my mom was a health nut so she grew up on I grew up she was vegetarian and into all the things taking vitamins and just being super health conscious. So I definitely had that informal or very formal introduction. We didn't have snacks at the house. We could have an apple or make it salad. It was like a little too healthy. Trust me. When you answer ice cream. When you went to your friend's house, did you raid their cupboards? I didn't really make any friends that was much older, so. I was late bloomer. Okay, okay, yeah, yeah. But you had your sisters, Jess and I are like jealous. We both have brothers, and I feel like having sisters, it's like, you all go through that together. Did that affect your beauty philosophy at all? Did you do each other's hair? Help out with that kind of stuff. My sisters, my mom, we were brave, and I was little, so my mom did my hair. I think I recall my older sister, maybe braiding her hair once, or back in the day. Kind of hazy. But we grew up really innocent, really green. We were playing mostly lots of tenants.

Meanwhile, Novak Djokovic, the third member of the so called Big Three, is trying to become the first man ever to win 21 Grand Slam titles and the first man since 1969 to win all four majors in the same calendar. You almost Frank Lindsay caught up with the New York Times tennis correspondent Chris Clary. You just released a new book about Roger Federer called the Master Chris before we get into the book itself. I wanted to get your sense. Is this it?

I think you have to say that era is over. Now you've been if Roger manages to come back against the eyes of place, or I don't see him being a regular factor with just those two guys at the top anymore, So it was a tremendous period of time in tennis history. I think it is over. And now we're looking at Least for now, Novak Against the younger generation until that going for one of the ultimate achievement sport, not just tennis a true Grand Slam.

She's still young. The girls went sixteen years old. I think she said yes. Lean slide. nineteen. Yeah and i think a lot of people wanna make her the next serena and i had a couple of people that at work say to me the other day like wow that cocoa goth that that really cooled off high. And i was like wow like. She's a baby but because the reenen venus were already winning majors at fifteen and sixteen and seventeen years old. Everybody wants these girls to be ready to go at fifteen or sixteen. And i'm like. That's what made serena and venus who. They were the idea that they were so well rounded at such a young age but In tennis you can. Play as serena showing well into your thirties. So i know that coco's got a long career head of her awesome for her. It's unbelievable to think about some of the athletes who have accomplished so much at such a young age. Because when i think back what was i doing at age. Seventeen white shirley was competing in the biggest tournaments around the world. I mean i was. You know listening to music in my car.

Yes i think that's called zone right. Yeah and the zone of the beautiful thing. And i don't think it happens that often and when you start to be the sonus show seek hint. You can do no wrong. So that's an athlete's dream mr zone. I let you can't control it right. It's sort of hits you and it leaves you. Yeah i mean. I think there's only moments zone. In my opinion in my sport there can meanwhile also that can be you know a set where you zone and it's great but i think he could take that concept of zone in life to being folkard isn't prepared in inet zone you know and yeah so yeah. It's funny i think it was. I can't remember what artists said this. But they said that like whatever that thing is zone like the inspiration news that when it comes to you you you better already be drawing or painting so it's like such an interesting thing for for those of us who not me but you know you have a specific skill and you're performing at like you better already be playing tennis when the muse comes to put you in zone four. I read i think you. I'm sure you know about this zone. Because for example. I refuse to do anything on camera. Because i'm the world's worst actress.

When you don't have it. I think it will if you're an artist or an athlete like if you're a channel for that kind of thing and it doesn't come it's it feels pretty demoralizing. I agree that. I try to trick myself. You know this is an emotion. Like i don't think i'm playing well as just an emotion. Just let it go like. Jim play you know so. I try to try to mentally work around. That feeling is in once. You're out of his own in starts all become mental you know.

I mean for me personally as an athlete. I wanted to win. I wasn't going to go. You know have fanfare. So there's definitely two sides to it and you have been in the media since you were so young like there's been so much focus on you. How did you learn over time to create those boundaries for yourself. Or how did you learn to not let that theater of public opinion seep in i think definitely mom and dad again anchored as never read anything about yourself so that way can avoid the issues of foreign even gets there just knowing who you are. You really have to know you are is. If you don't need to be out for a wild ride so. I think our parents helped us to know who we were encouraged to be strong confident. Know yourself know your history. All those different things help you to be firmly planted and also to have a belief system it has Values you don't have any values than you might do anything and you might even anything so i think just having that strong set of values that are strong spiritual background all kept my feet on the ground. Us you know myself serena my family an opportunity to just can be calm in the storm right. I'm just wondering as a parent like how what are the things that you say to a kid so that they are not emulating you or taking on your value system or what you think is right and wrong but like how are how can you encourage child to really look inward and create their own value system. I i don't know about that because my parents gave me my value system. And i'm just like them. Look so it worked for me. Value system resonated with you. Yeah i think you know as a young person you need. You need a strong start. You gotta have some some sort of values and then later on if you decide to make your own freebie to it. But yeah they're values is really helped to me and i spent two is though i think every kid's gotta make their choice at some point and i think also you were asking you know how to weather that is just encouraging your kids to telling them. They're great without making them. You know big headed or anything like trays them. Encourage them and things that they do well and it starts to make you feel good about themselves to. I got a lot of that. I still get that with my with my dad. He comes on the court. Still picks a bowls. And you know. He says you're doing great. He really did that well..

I think the day when i don't have anything left to get wrestler. No i have to move on.

It doesn't mean that you've never done anything that you would do differently or that you know like you could still feel bad about something that you've done but it doesn't necessarily mean that you regret it for me anyway. Those things that. I look back on and i feel like i wish that had been different. I wouldn't change it. Still you know even even if i get like a pang of shame or guilt or whatever because i feel like the recognition of those things began become a building block and you can shape who you are from those things absolutely learning from it. Things you sometimes. You just don't know until you learn. Have those experiences in as part of growing up. And i think in a way we're never done growing up if if you're done learn ning where are you in life so that i wanted to ask you because when naomi osaka the other day. She said she withdrew because she didn't want to talk to the press. I thought your response. Which kind of went viral. It was so great and so both protective of her and so strong in your own framework of you. You deal with stuff like i. Don't think that people fully understand the energy exchange that the press on that level like how much they can take from public figure. I know that there's of course the argument that will without the media. You know a public figure can't have than the impact that they have which. I totally understand that when the press wants something out of you like. It's an energetic exchange. Right like you can feel really depleted from it and there's can be a ton of negativity when you read or saw that she had done that. What was your feeling about that. Honestly i was proud of her wish you to do i sell and as a young person or as a person who is in demand her popular it can people can learn a lot of things from you and you can fail to take care of yourself and i learned early on only do the things that i wanted to do. And it doesn't mean that you don't always do things you don't wanna do that plank everyday. I hate planking. But but you know what i mean like you can get pushed into situations that you did mounties. Yeah so you're creating boundaries. That's the word thank you. I was really proud of her for standing up for herself and recognizing that. Hey i have to take care of me. Less people are asking things from that. I can't give took that moment. I was proud of her for that end. Yeah press can really tear you down. I don't read anything about myself. Ever in armenia. Either because you're just one person and then there's all these other people and you can't deal all those opinions on how strong the person you are. I don't think it's possible.

But i was thinking about this. Like how fun for you to be able to go through life. I mean i imagine. I don't know maybe it's a real pain in the ass but is it amazing to go through a career with a sister. It is and i can't imagine doing it without her. Because that's all. I know in a different perspective that every other muslim athletes do it alone. But i've never had to do this alone in especially in individuals for you. Are you walk out there. And that's it. You know you can't have someone. It didn't canton on the bench for a second so it. It is amazing to be able to have walked. You know the same road with her. And i know people always ask you like. What's it like to beat your sister and what's it like to lose to your sister but i just wonder if like there's because i imagine you love your sister and so much and it almost sounds like the way. Describe it almost as if your twins like going through something together you know and so. Is there anything particularly more vulnerable. Do you think about losing or winning to someone that you love like. It's it does it feel more vulnerable when you win or lose to her than someone who's a stranger. Yeah actually because no matter what happens on the court soon as my sister so the is just the match but for me when i played other people is not just in that what i can't you know you know just personal whereas with harry actually doesn't become personal because that's my sister so goes off the court in nets over and oftentimes like played each other in a final in after light.

Traffic was a bit of a wildcard coming into this tournament. Not really knowing if she'd be able to to put it together on grass but she's a she's a leveling up on this surf. Yeah i mean. She kind of underperformed at rolling girls as the defending champion. She's one of these players. Like like senator. Who is so young. They really don't have much experience on the surface so it was hard to predict what would happen but she gets through pegu six months love. She's going to face your bore who I mean talk about momentum. Just the most match wins on tour this year on cerberu overly i believe so i could be wrong but i'm pretty sure i saw the floating on twitter. Let's hope that's right. She beat venus williams in the second round. Now the move with a match for me was the most exciting match of the first week. Just because you had everything. I mean you had the quality but there were also some intangibles that you really can't predict well i guess if it's on's you can predict that there may some vomit going on at some point in the match but she's done this before okay real no really no. I just wanted to make sure you had your facts because that's a pretty bold thing to say to me this is. This is the kind of matchup that i like to watch on grass. I want to see a huge hitter. Like move the former champ against jabbour. Who was someone who can serve and volley who is creative and a quick thinker out there and it creates a just a drama. That i this is what i wanna see younger. Congress well jabber was warmed up by venus williams in the previous round. If that's the kind of play that you like and invest the play that she'd have to deploy to beat mcgrew though right now. Of course i would have rather seen venus go further but failing that i love to see what ivar is doing really it. You know it's taken her a few years to really capitalize on all the talent that she has and this past probably eighteen months. She's been putting it together. She generated twenty nine break. Chances against mcgrew on grass. Like that is crazy move. Saved what twenty five of them. Twenty like twenty four or twenty five. She saved which has also amazing but I mean java's habit in in the third set. She really started to dominate in the third set. And it actually didn't run away with it. It got a little bit. Tricky later on. She got to match point goes to the back of the court barks. I mean it wasn't just like a little more. It wasn't a it wasn't a baby. Spit up a real sea enough barking on tv. Yes tactile barking for you to just avoid to too much detail. That is actually when the match became prestige television because all prestige dramas have to have very graphic vomiting scenes. I know you've noticed. So she throws up. She comes back to the line. She loses a first match point but then she gets a service winner and finishes out the match on her second match. Point in in this match up here. We know that trump has this pedigree on clay. But she's also the twenty eighteen.

We don't hear from at all right muslim. Just go off grid. I will say that that's absolutely true.

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. I was getting various enchanted with tennis and tennis players tennis players because there was no tennis but tennis players were not impressed. Me overall with their conduct. Yes you had venus doing

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.

That's D Work I mean a lot of that work was watching tennis and talking about it, which is no hardship expertise violins out for me, but it did take. A couple of days of adjustment and I did I did parise my tally wardrobe and veer towards the items that did have elasticated waste say no longer in the suitcase, which now is buying up yet it's been the Kobe. Pack the. Case. To take to St Louis Park. Containing my my tally jvm. Isaac. is any impact through week Stockley Park is where the video assistant referee job isn't it for the football? Yes I've had a va or seminar at Stockley Park. I've you know from? The the BBC. SNOOKA, coverage is coming out of the an adjacent studio at the time.

'cause we can't go this year, which is going to be a bit weird but. At least it looks like it is going ahead from a sports playing tennis playing perspective. 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.

Along which there were. Removals, vans and cement mixes and pickup trucks. Interrupting, interrupting the days tennis frequently. And it was all delightfully quaint and so apt somehow because tennis is more humble. Now upon its return in tennis players are having to be more humble and so it felt kind of really perfect that status his return I know we had Palermo last week in. Pro Pro concurrently, which is a more established tour van but to meet just felt really perfect that it was as as humbling as it was a setting. And even more perfect.

Venus Williams - Game Changer
"Hello everyone can t the tennis podcast day. Eleven of Wimbledon relived would have been women's Semifinals Day Wimbledon and would probably have been under the reef because looking out of my window in Putney, which is a? Mile and a half ish down the road from us, W nineteen is in miserable. Say That's great. Thank you, British weather for making some twenty twenty. Just that little bit extra great. But not to worry because. David Matt to talk tennis with. Seven hundred episodes David you just told me. We actually can mark a milestone because we've remembered it before recording rather than fully seconds off the recording. Yeah, we! We've celebrated five hundred, six, hundred one in the past. So yeah I'm fin quite proud. You know it. It draws me when you say it's women's semifinal state today because I'd kind of I'd forgotten that in as much as I'm so used to now talking about classic matches with you both watching them. We've just watched another one to the BBC of. Matches on every day that they're showing Wimbledon doing their own stuff online streaming matches, which is the one good thing I take from this whole period is the suddenly. The vast archive is just being. Put out there for everybody to enjoy, but I had forgotten. That is still Wimbledon and today would have been women's semifinals, and that makes me quite sad, yeah. I, wish I wish I could forget I get the impression that perhaps you haven't forgotten in the optimistic. Every cloud silver lining way that David. I Dunno, I kind of have in a way, I'm just so so invested in what we're doing. The the usual schedule of Wimbledon isn't isn't really in my mind so much. Just me then okay. Trip back to two thousand and five when. Storm strong was winning his seventh consecutive Tour de France title. Yup? The three hundred eighty made its first flight at the live eight concerts. Good friend of mine went to live eight in Hyde Park and she says it was mostly great until sting came on early evening when everyone was pissed in party made and some new material. Juno live eight is when I discovered pink Floyd and realized I two thousand. David Luiz discovered. It's. Matt's now. Sort of got me to to realize that I actually need to listen to albums full of Bruce springsteen and not just judge. We. Born in the USA. Correct. Correct get on that David's It was also the year that Britain implemented. The civil partnerships axe to include same-sex partnerships. It was the year that London won the rights to host the twenty twelve Olympics. And the xbox three sixty was released Oh and Pope John Paul the second died. There's a few. We've already done it two thousand and five much at the French. Open say these are these events that we didn't mention I around, so that was T-, thousand five I was working. My First Wimbledon as an employee I was a bull store assistant. Under the employees of one Derek Dimmer? Who was the head of the bull store at Wimbledon in done that job with his wife? Centuries I think. It was it was a job. which largely comprised heavy lifting and I loved it I couldn't believe my luck that I was working Wimbledon, even they. My primary job was lifting boxes of tennis balls and wandering around the orange practice with bin bag, asking players and coaches. 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.

Recouping Great. To treat. Filed for juggled manage that Juggling Act potentially better than you did in the lost years. I'm saying I didn't want to repeat any of my qualifications exactly ten years on from when from what I completely failed mine at. Two, thousand and two, you were six. 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. Is that boils down to this on AC- went be around for much longer, and no other male player comes close to the international stardom of the Williams sisters. Why not try to get in on the action?

"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

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
