Australian Open Day 2 - Mind Over Matter For Halep; Williams Sisters Impress; Dysfunctional Australian Tennis
There was less drama on day two of the 2019 Australian Open, but still plenty for David Law, Catherine Whitaker and Grad Matt to talk about on The Tennis Podcast.The biggest story was Simona Halep’s comeback victory against Kaia Kanepi. Just how significant was that for Halep? What was she like when she spoke to Catherine? And can she now go far in the tournament?Halep might run into Serena Williams in the fourth round. Serena thrashed Tatjana Maria in less than an hour. But why did she not do a pre-tournament press conference? Venus Williams was also a winner on Tuesday. Does she get the credit she deserves for her longevity? Is it understandable why she doesn’t give much time to the media?The biggest off-court story was Bernard Tomic’s criticism of Lleyton Hewitt. Why are there so many rifts within Australian tennis?There’s also a look ahead to day three. Can Katie Boulter beat Aryna Sabalenka? And how much will the heat of the day help Dan Evans against Roger Federer? The Tennis Podcast will be produced daily throughout the Australian Open (and at all the Slams) after our Kickstarter was funded by our listeners. It is produced in association with The Telegraph.

Bianca Andreescu is just getting started
Meet Bianca Andreescu. She's an 18-year-old from Mississauga, Ontario. Today, she's playing tennis. For a spot in the tournament finals. That tournament is Indian Wells, one of the biggest events on tour. She just smoked a two-time grand-slam champion, and nearly did it without losing a single game. She beat Venus Williams a few weeks ago. And Caroline Wozniacki, too. She has more wins in 2019 than anyone else on the WTA. Did we mention she's 18? Where did she come from? Or even better, where do all of these Canadian tennis prodigies keep coming from? Because Andreescu is not the only one. There's a trio of teenagers who have spent the better part of the past year knocking off big names in the men's and women's game. So how'd they do it? And just how high can they fly?
