Former Player and Agent Donald Dell
"Everyone John Wartime here is this week's sports illustrated? Tennis podcast is also the first week of Wimbledon. He says wistfully our guest this week. Is Donald Dell? Donald is a former player a promoter broadcaster at agent. He's worn many hats, not unlike Bartholomew Cubans. He is also worn many at once. Donald is still force in tennis. He wrote an op Ed recently in the Washington Post, about the prospect of combining the men's and women's tours, so we talk about that. We talked about where tennis is right now, and as a bonus, Donald signed Michael Jordan out of North Carolina and especially after last dance. We talk about Michael Jordan so some non tennis bonus coverage on Michael Jordan and a lot of good tennis. Talk here's Donald Dell. Appreciate you doing. How are you doing? I'm doing fine We've been lucky I've been home since about March fifteenth, but my two daughters, their husbands, and our two grandchildren, five and seven are about thirty yards from where we are, and it's like one hundred twenty day thanksgiving. It doesn't sound bad. Yeah, let's I I. Don't know but I got a couple of things to bring up. I. Did want to talk about the the op-ed you wrote. Wrote thought you'd be a good person to talk about with the the tour merger, which has been eclipsed lately by a Co bit in the US Open, but this was sort of a hot topic, and everyone says the same thing which is great idea. The devils in the details, so let's let's advance that. How do we exercise those those devils details? How do we push through? So this becomes more than. In abstract idea that we need to negotiate what what are we doing to make this happen? Well I I think I think more than that. The Devil Devil's in the the leadership in other words I think it's GonNa take strong leaders it both part, both groups to get done, and I think Steve. Simon, and Mickey Lawler. Are Really, veterans, and and well respected, and well like Gatanzi the new chairman of the ATP I'm told his very smart very capable. And I. Think if the if they wanted to really do it, they get together. And then it takes a lot of support. You Know Billie, Jean and Roger, and some of the leaders in the game. All got behind it, then you. It's sort of like all the protests out there today you gotTa. You gotta move the ships and it's a big alphabet soup that everybody sort of fights for their turf. The ATP tour. Has Really established itself, but it's not part of the grand. Slams not far the idea. And not that that they want to be I don't Miss Other Sami, but I just think. Recently in the last six or eight years, the ATP tour has not worked very effectively in some senses because they've been voting in blocks the three tournament directors vote together. The three player reps vote together, and then the chairman's left. There was hanging vote and literally one vote because he always makes one side unhappy in the last two chairman. If you review John have been fired. Because one group didn't like how voted, and they need a super majority of forty two to extend. His contract so his contract ran out. In the last two cases now I'm told by people that very close to respect the Gal Gal Danzi is quite a different. Person needs a very strong leader, very smart and media and he really gets it. I just think for the sport It would be really helpful to have the two groups. Merged on a on a simple basis, and the when you talk about the details, you're right but I think the simplicity is what matters keep it simple stupid when you want to merge the to start with you don't have to have exactly the same boards, the same voting members, but come in and merge it, and have you know five or six basic principles and truthfully. We, found out in Washington with the city open that Iran for fifty years literally for the WTI ESPN Tennis Foundation. That We. We had a men's only event for forty two years, and then city came along our title sponsor, and rightfully said look fifty one percent of our clients. Bankers are women, so we're not gonNA. Unless you'll bring a women's tournament into it and we did, but it was a problem because there's a bigger women's event at Sanford for seven hundred thousand, we were only allowed by the rules for two fifty, but guess what. The ATP the minority of the ATP ten percent fought it tooth and nail. They didn't want it integrated tournament. And I to go before the board three different times, and swear up and down that we give him favorability on the scheduling of the Center Court. Scheduling, transportation scheduling practice courts. And it just didn't. It's working okay. And the women, the best women like to play Washington but now under the new WTA rules. We can only sign one of the top twenty in the world in order to protect the other event. That's raising more prize money by seven hundred or more, so those kind of problems out to be worked out and the ATP tour really needs to get a stronger with this membership the the the vocal minority, which is really only about ten or twelve percent, and it's always the complainers on the tour. The to aboard knows who they are, and they're always ranked between one hundred, fifty and three hundred,

Tour coaches before we get started especial thanks to our PODCAST, sponsors head who make our favorite rackets here at functional tennis okay. Here we go. Let's hear Tom. Story Hi Tom. Welcome to the functional tennis podcast. Thank you for having me. Great Avenue Board couch to speak to learn a bit of orbit. You have your such a young coach working with some. Some great players so tell before we get started. How has locked and being for you? Do you work with Maria carry has stopped being the communication on what she's working on. And all that side tanks. Yes, so I've honestly lost track of the days of what exactly I actually went into lockdown. As soon as I flew back from Indian wealth. That was a little bit before the official down in the UK. so I've been in lockdown for a while from Maria I think Greece. Greece Osa went into lockdown at around the same time as the UK it was only around two weeks ago where she actually started practicing again so I'd say kind of the way I was. It was more just kind of motivation for the last eight weeks and I know everyone's kind of going through the same Maria like. Let's just kind of take it one day at a time. We don't know when the toll is GONNA be returning Trans Focus on fitness home workouts. Do some sort of. The strategic videos things like that, but it's also. It's very difficult. I think at the same time mostly. Just having rest is good. I think players can get burnt out in the season so I honestly feel like the rest is perfectly fine. Marie actually started training again a couple of weeks ago. So now I'm not able to more of a tennis coach. You know planning the practices. In the UK I get out degrees to to help the. We have a hitting. You just kind of running through the program that I'm setting hone I. Think the a soon as she's been able to get back on court. Motivation is obviously increasing. It's still difficult because I. Don't think anybody has any idea of when tournaments are going to return. It's a tough tough times. Everyone the I think the fact that she's on call is is definitely helping as the, neither it's I've just been doing some homework outs some fitness trying to work on like a few little side projects that to be honest. I'm enjoying the timing because. Because my family because I'm on the road last last year on the road for forty two weeks in the year, so just to be able to spend more than two weeks in a row. My family I'm really trying to like make the most of that. Twelve forty two weeks is a lot and plus we're going to just talk a bit about your younger days. How you got into tennis moves to states. You've been away from your family for a long time. Now he has an factually I was I went to Orange Jakarta me when I was ten Ashleigh my family moved out with me, so I was within to. My family sacrificed lots in a even, though has kind of been all around the world. They have been with me. Notice the time. It's only really kind of skin since university when I went to tech when I kind of been a little bit more on my own. So the kind of it's kind of been kind the last I'd say seven years when I kind of maybe had a week with my parents here two weeks task three weeks like three weeks is like Tracy's, and that's like. The off season period. That's the most I get. That I'd say when I was like a junior and playing. I was lucky that my parents sacrificed law and Wherever I was training they. Relocated stop plays the that of makes it a lot easier when you relocate halfway across the world. What was it like moved? ten-year-old of IMG was like you just like I just WanNa be a pro tennis player and I need to be here. Was that decision you made? You told your parents I need to get over there or was that something that they came to you with the kind of good question. Because I remember when I was younger, I was always debating between a full tennis, I was very good. And I I remember having a fight with my my code because I like to play up front score. The goals kind of be like you know the one everybody loves. To strike exactly, and and then he we had some some problem in defense and I had play one game as a defender. Although it's a crew school position in football. US to to a ten year old. I'm just kind of just the back. Just waging I had I was playing on a very good team so I actually didn't have to do too much and I wanted to be kind of Indiaction, so that kind of slowly lost my. With the football, the sport I was playing at the time was also tennis and. I remember I would have problems of my school. They wouldn't allow me enough time to to go out to school to practice my tennis play football and I got kind of a stage I was dying to take. My parents actually really enjoy tennis I. I would love to try and become a professional, and I think my parents they. I, mean they. They battled with the schools to try and see if they could get me an extra hour alto, instead of doing he at school I could go, and do you know get some tennis lessons and it just? It proved to be too difficult. At the club that I was training at. K., Salahuddin at the time I'd actually been on a few camps to I N G Academy in Florida with the Celada and kind of junior program about ten fifteen years ago, there was some you know great. Junior junior players in the Birmingham area and I I just kind of under that kind of saints. My parents would be amazing if I could go train. IMG tennis would be so much better. and you know my parents took massive sacrifice, and and you know they let me. They gave me an opportunity to go and do it, and honestly it was the best decision. I made some tennis around that age at ten years old.
Federer: WTA/ATP Should Merge - our reaction; John Millman nearly retired, then beat Federer - our interview
"Hello everybody another tennis. Podcast for you won't we weren't planning to bring you a couple of days ago but you know we just can't get enough of this and the so much going on and yes okay. There's no tennis but the stuff to talk about and we've got an interview with Joe Millman for you so we'll have that later but Catherine is here. Catherine David Selamat had David and the reason. We're convening altogether now. Not just having the Joe Millman interview which had been the original plan until about four hours ago is about twelve twenty eight pm today. Russia Federa- tweeted and what he tweeted was just wondering am I. The only one thinking that now is the time for men and women's tennis to be united and come together as one at which point Catherine and I wanted whether this was a teaser to a bit of content that might be coming out between the two tours because they've been producing causes loss of that and then I thought it can't be that cooked because I mean we've had instagram and lives law but moments later he said I'm picturing a merger between the WTO and the ATP I'm not talking about merging competition underscores but merging the two governing bodies the. Wta that oversee the men's and women's professional tours it's too confusing for the fans when there are different ranking systems different logos different websites. Different tournament categories. It probably should have happened a long time ago. But maybe now is really the time these tough times in every sport and we can come out of this to weaken bodies or one stronger body. Now when you hear that when you read that out loud that is pretty strong stuff catherine and and have to. I mean okay. We've been moving towards that in terms of little bits of Combined content under brand of tennis united. And we've had a heard an interview that has been put our way by the of their new seat in the new chairman and drag at NC Talkin about more and more collaboration. But for Roger Federer to come out apparently unsolicited and just say it's time to merge the tolls that was bombshell stuff ready wasn't it behold this novel an exciting idea. Yeah it was pretty bombshell stuff. I mean obviously. It's a good idea. Obviously Reid you. The way you read out these tweets. That sounds entirely sensible great. Let's do it. I'm trying not to be Aussie and SNIFFY ABOUT CERTAIN ELEMENTS OF THE STORY. And the way it's developing and being told that is happening on twitter. I'm trying to be a bit. Socially distanced from tennis twitter. I say that with heavy equities because it makes me shudder a little bit But it can be a bit of a toxic place and I'm trying to not be embroiled in it but this whole story has dropped exclusively on tennis twitter sort of had to be reeled back in the sort of arms race to claim claimed territory and claim claim that. This was their ideal. This is the first time anyone had this idea. The facts that you know of one suddenly sitting up and taking native destroy quality when a man shouts about it. All of those things I there is a part of me that wants to be about the the. Oc posted me often wins. But I'M GONNA try and be utilitarian about it and think. Look if if this is how the right thing ends up happening then then fine you know and I'm I'm going to echo do some shadowing echoing into something that you're going to say in relation to a different issue Later in the POD. He's talking about the distribution of wealth and prize money among top level players which is now suddenly a a a burning topic or among plays in general and he says look. I can't believe it's taken a pandemic for for this to be taken seriously and for the real powers that be to consider addressing it. Will I feel exactly that way about the the unification of The governing bodies but hey it took countless examples. They were able to for the. Nhs happened say if the ends justify the means then great. I'm going to suppress for once my RC side. I slightly wants to be able to read that. Billie. Jean King's response on twitter to Roger Federer in the in the sort of tone of voice that you began that that line yourself because what she actually says is I agree and have been saying. So since the early nineteen seventies she. I reckon she didn't say it like that. I kind of wish you had. And then she goes on say one voice women and men together has long been my vision for tennis the WTI on its own was always planned. Be I'm glad we're on the same page. Let's make it happen Hashtag. One voice is what Billie Jean King replied with Samana. Halla Patrick Evita Gubbay. Meru all tweeted support for what Roger Federer had to say and then I found the Dow tweeted. Hey Roger Federa- as you know per hour discussions. I completely agree that it would be great to get out of this world crisis with the Union of men's and women's tennis in only one organization which yeah suddenly makes all of this same quite premeditated between the two of them will maybe more than two of them. We haven't had anything I should say on this subject from Novak. Chuck rich the president of the council at this point. But it doesn't feel like this is just some using that Roger. Federer has just done while he's bored in lockdown as such A. It sounds as though it's been given quite a bit of thought he's had this chat so we've been reminded of this press conference. The rough on the Dow was involved in in two thousand nine hundred Australian Open when he responded to questions about whether he thought that should be a combined organization between the deputy. Atp with just telling us a misunderstanding. So he doesn't didn't understand really why that would be a good idea why we should talk about that. Why why that should be on the agenda And so this is a very very different tone now. Obviously we weren't in the middle of a global pandemic at that point. The world looked very different. It may it may well be that people who had previously never given a second thought to a combined organization of Sydney. Actually th. That's the way out of this. That's a good idea and got to be ready for that. But it's it's pretty stark. Isn't it the difference in town? Yeah I mean elements of needles. Tweet genuinely made me laugh out loud. First of all any suggestion that Is Great is his. English is Spanish as a first language adult composed. Hey at Roger Federer as per discussions. I mean absolutely no way. Is That tweet composed by Rafael Nadal? Himself as per I've ever seen his tweets to Anna Ravenna. Vish venevision join twitter. He said I look forward to our discussions on this means of communication when it was back in the early days of twitter. It was really sort of formal. And it's like a tweet anyway. It kind of reminded me of that one. Yeah so I mean yeah I mean that's not anything. Groundbreaking is that. He didn't necessarily compose himself. And if I was tweeting in a second language I would probably ask for some assistance as well. We've got to eat so I'm not having a pulp about that. But it the the sort of the attempt to say this. This was my idea too. I this came from a discussion that we both had. I was in on this too. That made me laugh because yeah I mean he. He kind of gets a slightly on it from me included because I think I kind of write him off of somebody. That's just not not hugely engaged with the with the wider. She's in Tennessee. And he kind of mice to the time brushes off interrogation about them as sort of. Oh you'll have to ask other people that are that are better informed and have have moose stake in it than than me. I'm not the best person to speak to you. That that clip. That's going around on twitter from the loss. Jesus straighten open is a good example of that. But the fact is he. He hasn't been supportive of equality in In Women's Tennessee's very much market forces based approach T. V. Prize money in the tools etc. So yeah this is. It's a bombshell.

Tennis adapting to the new normal: French Open 'unilateral' September Switch; 'Flushing-Garros' slams back-to-back?; Laver Cup & ATP/WTA responses analysed; 'Excusez-moi?' Players find out on social media; Tips for fans to cope with no tennis
"Everyone and welcome to the passing Shaw. The tennis poke caused by fans four fans with your host Jolan Kim. Today on the show. We're going to be bringing you up to speed on all the latest developments of the corona virus hit tennis season including the French controversial date change the ATP and WBZ's movement to a collective approach decision making and how players are keeping on their training routines in home. Kim I find this all very surreal. It could have been Indian Wells. Men's Fund will stay. We could have been previewing the AP we could have been. Who knows. Maybe looking forward to Andy Murray in back onto a tennis court but unfortunately sadly all that is on hold seemingly indefinitely a you you in high spirits. Nassir to Joe. I mean I've just it just keeps getting from bad worse doesn't There is just as old ask for control. We company do anything we have to sort of hate for the best and I mean there are things we can do. We can follow advice and stay inside of course but yeah. I would give anything right now just to have. Tennis is a poker it like whoever it is I will. I will accept the crappiest final in Tennessee straight. Means we have lives for again right. I find it quite funny. Actually because even though we no life tennis to kind of talk over there still seems to be actually more tennis news to actually To actually catch up because you know we still had a lot of information. Come at us from the tennis world. some some more surprising than others. And obviously we'll get onto that. Let's just give our listeners on ourselves. Actually a pair of the of the lay of the landscape at the moment the Toys R. Off Indefinitely Think. Officially at the moment they've been suspended to the seventh of June which is basically ruled out. Oh Clay Court tennis. So we've had all the tournaments in Madrid Rome Strasbourg Rats Munich astro Geneva Leon who whites from the calendar ranking points have been frozen as well so yeah we've got no. I got life headed to come to full with T. But when this was kind of announced I think the big the big talker boy it just the state the announcement was the that the ATP at W. Ta said now is the time to act unilaterally. Kim But in unison. Yeah so I mean they overeat out what they said. And I'll see if our listeners can notice what's missing so auden all decisions related to the impact of the creative. Irs Require Consultation and review with the stakeholders in the game view that is shared by ATP WPA the ANC tennis Australia and the USDA. So Joe. What's missing from US announcement. I think that I think maybe the French tennis federation a missing. I I have no idea why that is the case. They could have been because they went compete. Ray who can just reschedule tournament at the top of a heart without telling anyone our consulting anyone involved in which is going to be a might have something to do with it. I think I've eaten. What bold move. I mean understand that they obviously won't let on to happen at some point and is obviously wasn't going to really happen you know saying it's the it's the next. Grand Slam in the calendar but the decision they took was just so so rash and they've moved to the most awkward position arguably in the calendar. You know just all for the USA. But I think there's about six days in between the end of the US Open. Stop the French Open. This is all hypothetical oversee. None of this may happen and from what I've read from some circles. It's unlikely that we'll probably have any tennis the rest of the year. I don't know I mean. I'm hoping that's not the case. Obviously but all of the kind of ramifications. Ooh Who's GonNa play what what's going to happen like might be null and void because they might white everything a. Let's let's say hypothetically that it does. Let's say the French will go ahead in September? I think the dates they have said at the moment it will take place is September twentieth to the Fourth of October. First of all clay-court Teddy's at that time. That's not going to be fun is it? Yeah it's going to be very cold. I mean even wrote on Garza's on end of May beginning of genie's they can have some terrible weather and to be fed they do have the reef but also there wouldn't be any legal tournaments in in-involved say people would be coming in like fresh off the hard courts Without any practice unless they choose to focus just on the clay and took themselves off to some challenger events or futures the because I think those things they could probably arrange you know in advance kind of place at the time to kind of set them out for like practice. I think they're easier to kind of just put on a shorter natives. But it's just yeah. I mean what you do for example if you're if you're a rapper. He's defending the US. Open defending the French shape in this year. Does he just play both and hope he can defend both? Does he pick one over the other. It's just the strangest decision and we've never seen this happened before but it's is just I mean. Would that be the most remarkable achievement if someone one base of as black tobacco? We've talked about someone winning the French Open and Wimbledon boxy. There's still a gap of several weeks between those two but and that's obviously not being done an awful lot so this would be some fate if it was a chief. Yeah I mean certainly. I think it's still by the the PA. The calendar is obese. Like a back to back grand slams. We've got the sunshine double. It did well by. Abby is you've got the I coined it on twitter at the the flushing guerrillas days It's certainly that that would be a challenge for I mean for a lot of players especially for someone like Nidal. He is the defending champion in both of them. Both events would be taken enormous toll on the body. And you know we've seen you know the big three that approach to the season to take kind of a stripped back approach pick and choose events and it does it does bring up the question of you know if that does go ahead and you have back to back Grand Slams. Is it possible to debate for which you have to watch? You have to be really refocused and just say I'm going to do one or the other and you think that potentially from the Dow I would just focus on on the French Open as it would pay me to say given defended the US Open champion. Ba Yeah it feels like just focus on on one. I mean he would be the history again at the friendship going. Thirteen to add. It would be great if he could win at different times of the year when the conditions that may be different because that would just I guess ultimately proved that Hey I am totally trae anytime of the year. I will be there at the top so you'd have to think he would go for the French over the US. But I mean another thing. Is that depending on. When or if the season comes back like players will have had a long spell of time. You know in competition say they might be much fresher healthier and injury free so it might not matter too much in terms of the toll on their bodies as if this is happening at the end of animals is not that we would see this kind of contrast normally it might be the impact might be lessened somewhat because of that. But I mean who say. We haven't mentioned that it will say clashes with the Labor cop which is technically an exhibition right. It's not like a proper event but basically all the top names you know have signed up and committed to playing and all the tickets have been sold. Yeah sold out. It's being held in Boston. Which is I guess. A logical place to for them to get off the Apron said exhibition senior team world. Lovely what will I mean tires on surely going to pick that over the friendship? And but it's

WTA Tour Suspended Until May 2nd
"We had this six weeks suspension announced that means no Miami no Charleston on the W. T. side this was an issue of the ATP announced on their own unilaterally. Canceling MIAMI MONTE-CARLO IS GONNA go and everything. Bassi up until the end of of April and bit by bit. The WTI came pretty much to the same conclusion but they tried to do it one at a time rather than just doing a complete block of canceling everything. That's where we stand. At the moment we have had another update today a WTI saying because of the ongoing Global Corona Virus outbreak the WTO tournaments in stood guard Istanbul and Prague in April Arcane to be cancelled as well and so everything is suspended on. Wgn Tore now until may the second they say we will make a decision in the week ahead regarding the remaining Wti a European play caught tournaments are monitoring the situation closely so it may not be the end of of the constellations even even now so here we are amid March. We know we're not GONNA get any tennis on the women's side until may the second so let's talk to a couple of the players who are out in India wells who were affected by this situation starting with the British number. One on the men's side Down Evans World Number Twenty eight career high ranking of twenty eight. I had a little chat with him before he went to Indian wells initially when he was still in Dubai and I sensed then he was pretty anxious about the whole situation the fact that he was going to go back to the UK just for a couple of days then flats California he he. He really didn't know what to expect when he got there so I asked him first of all what it was like when he got to think like nothing was was any different at the Stop I actually went to San Diego for two is a few members at the club. She said to me all year. We're not going down to endure wells issue because of the corona virus and I mean always on our. I guess you know they were. They were older members to in. This guys says always decided that Mr Tikey precautions and we go down there and as I'm sure you're not a tennis player not the most You know pretty isolated in their own world and no already set much until I think it was. It was pretty much the die before qualifying stay there was there was is that it was GONNA get cooled off. Alan. Yes big big room Sula started unethical cooled off for the the die before Listen to the Health Minister of I think it was California or cut Coachella Valley and he said that he might have statement about into wells. I would be the guy who would be calling off sedan Sort of happened. It was all very vivid surprise really but then at that I. It wasn't so much surprise if she knows all the severity of Then not long after the Miami consolation when it was a pandemic what was the week. What's a week been like since then because they were they were letting everybody stay? Weren't they in use Indian Wells for an stay in the the accommodation? What did you? What was it like being around the other players at that time? Yeah well I mean we started like there is a few few different people two different things so that was advised to not leave the country because remodel belt guest in back in and then does seem like he was defeating the jets. If people could have committed that would have been Miami really and then it was all pretty strange. You know I didn't make didn't like practicing one was we? Were supposed to be playing. It seemed you know pretty no atmosphere. There was no saying it was terrible so applies to be to be honest and I find it pretty hard too noisy to be motivated but everyone was brought to which was destroyed thing. I've always prided everyone was eating together. So it was all this. It was all surreal India wiles. And then as said when we heard W hite sugarcoated upon Devon. Everybody was booking flights that I think you know the wrong. Who was on the Wolf for Miami? And obviously they've called on the ADP side. They pretty much immediately called a six week. Holt to the toll now. That's that's a pretty far reaching impact for so many people I mean in even in our little ecosystem of tennis. Yeah you've had a good a good start to the good last year so you'll have built up some some finance that you can. You can weather a period like that. But not everybody's in that both I would imagine no I guess not a not much anyone can really do is right now. It's it's a terrible situation for everybody you know thankfully no one just yet tested positive Well not as far as I know. That's my thing is to keep everybody healthy. I think that's the reason why the tournaments have been I think consoled in on the six week pulls to the Tool the tournament it's You know obviously a difficult time for everybody involved like just said you know even dancer. People Work Torments Aichi sponsored of player? Who is a my fly? And he wasn't sure she was getting paid or not. You know which is the end of the day. That's what everybody wants to have it as they go to to work to get paid. Because I have stuff to pay for the livelihood. Juno Dot Com. Mr Bill could fail in for for anyone. Don't know if you're going to get paid in the NFC can't for everybody. Ron and in Great Britain and the world. Yeah I mean you. You obviously had a period of time out the game. We we know the reasons for I remember you talking about the time that you found it quite hard sort of just not having the purpose in a way is it. Is that something that you feel may might help you in a way that you've at least had experience of that. If if we're able to to practice I don't see I.

How To Minimize Stress When Traveling For Business
"Let's jump right it into and make sure we minimize all your stress when it comes to traveling for business the first step is you guessed. Planning this is critical critical. And you want to do this as early as possible. I always say it's good to plan a minimum one month before the day of travel if you could do it earlier. That's even better but what you wanted to hear as you want to make sure everything is taken care of and planned out well before you travel plannings things going to reduce the most amount of stress for you now if you don't have an ea or a va to help you out. That's okay you can do all this by yourself. But of course if you do so have an assistant or virtual cert- executive assistant of some sort. They can help you. Do a lot of this legwork so the first thing is very obvious you WanNa book everything. You need to book to do this trip so you want to book. All your Mir flights or tickets you're accommodations an any ground transport. The you may need. It's not going to be easy some cities. There's no uber meaning to book an airport shuttle things like that and all your transport accommodation needs to be taken care of well in advance. Why because because things sell out things really get stressful when you have no options especially when the conference that you're going to for example has a group rate often? If you go to a conference they have some sort of code that you can use the hotel that it's being hosted at that group rate is only for a certain number of rooms and he can sell l. out and you're going to have to pay the higher rate of the hotel if you wanna stay there or look at other options again the earlier the better Bookham in advance the other thing is that you're gonNA save a lot of money when you book early with your flights your accommodations everything in between now once you have all your flights near accommodations booked. So you WANNA put them in one place. So they're easy to find when you're traveling when you're on the day of travel when you're moving around when you want to reduce stress now the old fashioned finally and it still works is to drank all these email confirmations these itenerary in a folder in your g mail so you can open your phone. You can just open that folder. They're all in one place. I guess the real fashioned way. I mean the real fascists to print them off right but in this day and age. You don't need to print off. You can just use your phone. So that's one option. The other option is use an APP called trip case. I've used case many times and it's really really cool and basically you do trip case. Is You forward. Forward your itineraries your bookings to a specific email. You have like this unique trip case e mail that you send to you for these Itineraries Timorese to them and the apple bring in all these itineraries and put it on the APP in your profile so that you can just open up the APP and see everything in order actually uh all the flights and accommodation the cities are going to. It's pretty cool another tip when it comes to your flights. Make sure that you do everything. You Kim You know you buy any actual luggage. You need to buy you reserve your see too. So you know exactly where you're sitting and you have no stress when it comes to that if you have some special communication need need to do with the accommodation like you have a special requirement like the number of pillows you need or The type of betting you on or maybe it's an AIRBNB and if some special instructions you need to get into the place get that all sorted well advanced before you actually take off once your flights in your accommodation. It's time to lock in in your calendar. This is critical and this is the step most people forget or they don't do and it actually makes your life so much easier and you travel and this is to book your whole trip. Not just the places you're going but the book everything you're doing every day in your calendar this allows you to kind of clear or your mind and you just follow your calendar. You don't have to worry about what's next or where you're supposed to be doing or trying to figure things out on the fly so literally my calendar will say eh the dinners. I'm going to the people I'm meeting up with everything in between so that means all has organized. If I'm going to meet up with some local friends friends in a city them Have a conference that I'm going to go ahead. And make sure I get that all range and reserved and a table book and everything well in advance. What you I WANNA do? Is You want to reduce all thinking all decision-making when you're traveling by booking every portion of the day in your calendar you know exactly what you're doing. There is no decision making. There's no hiccups. And of course people might cancel. And that's just free time for you. Great no problem. I'm a big big fan of this because I hit the ground and I know everything is done and planned for and I don't have to make any decisions fantastic is like going on a guided tour right now. I don't recommend this generally when when you're going on vacation for holiday it's good to have some flexibility and just kind of get lost a little bit but when you're traveling for business you want to reduce stress and be as efficient efficient as possible next dough. Forget to put your autoresponder your vacation mode on your email. Let people know that you'll be slow to respond. Hey a lot all of us when we travel for business were on a plane for ten fifteen sometimes even longer twenty hours being connections. That's day so even if you plan to hit the ground running an answer all your email when you're there you're going to be out of commission for few hours or a whole day sometimes on that flight. Give yourself a little bit WTA leeway forty-eight hours when you're going away hours when you cling back because when you come back from a trip from business you might WanNa take some notes kind of share your information with your team whatever it is an ally yourself a little time to

Yeah I mean I think we said it I think can the big three continue or will You know the newcomers finally finally finally break through and win a major. We've been saying this for a long time Think on the women's side we talk about Serena and on the flip side of that I think you one of the story lines that will continue as just the newcomers In in the young players you've got eighteen. Nineteen twenty two twenty three year olds Ashbury at the top of the rankings Those are all and Andy Murray very interesting To the wildcard for tweet now but I think I mean I think the sport is actually kind of transitioning awfully well. I mean for years and years as we've been saying boy. This sport is really in for a reckoning. When there's no big three and no Serena Williams and I think You Know Maria Sharapova might have been a bit of a dry run here where yeah you know. You're you're probably sell some some extra tickets and you have a little more attention when she's in the mix but she's sort of transitions a bit to the background than you know what other players fill the vacuum and as long as they're still handing out trophies on the second Sunday people are still GonNa Watch.

US Open so we're we're up at twelve straight now and on the women's side I think you're right. We have a lot of different players winning. We'll see who has staying power. I mean again I owe me. ASAKA was a terrific story in part because she went back to back majors. And we'll see address you again. Simona HALEP has something to build on ash parties.

"Of course Bianca's year help winning Wimbledon. And especially how she did it. I added Serena's losing skid of four consecutive Grand Slam finals. Where in the world is Carmen? Mcgrath where is she? She's training with one Martinez right. She is now but this year she wanted title in Monterey and a lot of people like oh she back back back. Unfortunately we know better but along those lines. One of the surprising moments of twenty nine thousand nine was the fact that Mugabe actually split with Sam Sumit yes. That was a big submission from a lot of folks. That did not go noticed. 'cause folks out here in tennis. Twitter have been clamoring for this to happen for years. All those coaching timeouts that were so uncomfortable and for so long. It seemed like they had a a really unhealthy coach pupil relationship. And that's done. The fork was finally stuck in that relationship but leaving. Subic and then joining with conceited Martinez. She made like Dr Frazier Crane and said I'm listening except with Dr Crane ever really listening. No of course not the entire fringe open. Sure of the four Grand Slams. This was the most Most surprising and the one at which the draw like didn't work out as it was penciled in it exploded it did know Serena Burton's Pletikosa Osaka or fiddling passed around three and you remember that Burton's and Pushpa one boat a both one massive pre French Open titles on clay critical pulled out right before the tournament started Halloween. Sloan the twenty. Eighteen finalists lost in the quarterfinals. And then of course we have the shocking semifinalists and finalists under Rochambeau and then any open semi-finals spare thought for Kiki Burton's because she came in as one of the big favorites. She wasn't even a dark horse anymore. She was square on favorite for title. Yes and she got ill. She was afflicted with diarrhea. She literally had to run from the Interior Room. Yes because that shit was happening out saying where she was running to but okay yes we also have pressroom gate at the French overawed. Let's let's not right after the French Open the WTA finally acknowledged its Lgbtq fans and history With Hashtag it takes equality. This was one of my most surprising moments of twenty nineteen because quite literally the WTA is founded on the backs of some of the most high-profile lesbians in the history of all sport. I must set it like Blanche Devereaux l. let let lesbian let lesbian one of the greatest moments in TV history. Just GonNa put that out there. And so it becomes so bizarre that every year during Pride Month. We can't get any celebration of of the sports tremendous queer following And so for the first time the WTA acknowledged Gus and celebrated us. And I felt seeing for the first time by the WPA in a way that should have been happening all along one or the other surprising moments. Shortly Naomi. Osaka won the Australian Open. She and coach. Sasha BARON SPLIT UP AT THE TIME. It was quite surprising. Now it's I don't know I don't know what it looks like. In retrospect but right after winning a major it was indeed a not expected. The two biggest shocks of the early season was that. Because I mean you win two slams and then it's over and also they seem to have such great report they would be renaming roasting Sasha all the time they they seem to get along really well and so people were floored by that but it also happened after what I think is the first shocking. Moment of the year Serena Williams losing from five one open the third set against carrying applicable at the Australian Open and the quarter-finals. Mcdonald's wild and Serena was injured most inopportune moment. And you saw something you never see. On a tennis court Serena Williams losing from five one up in Vence Li literally. That is something that you never see with a match point on her serve. She injured herself. Roller ankle she lost to match. Boyd's unser she generated two more match points on Caroliina serve lost those and then ended up losing the match. Seven five and I hate to make everyone relive it but it. Is it surprising to me how much this match got lost? And and I wonder Serena has seen everything at this point. This was something new that that she hadn't seen B- it and had she been younger and less experienced. Would this be one of those matches that traumatize you as a player? How long do you carry that with you? Because it was in a way was traumatic. It was it was on embarrassing but I bet she was embarrassed by it. She had lease that she lost as a young young player right. I believe that match of the French Open against a Russia way back in the day of ninety eighth year that rancher one right that was wild but this match was so thoroughly hers Lejos so clearly. She was about to win it. I've never seen anything like it at the swing volley offer some bad surprises. Those bad surprises being that ex players on pundits. Were calling a nail to Rehire Sasha. After she split with Germaine Jenkins. And after Sasha's split with Madonna Vich and the other thing that was a bad surprise where the pundits screaming about relaxing the age rule for Coco. Gov Right thank you for reminding of those horrible. No good takes just terrible. Binion's trash a surprising moment. Kim Clijsters announcing her comeback. I will not forget waking up and watching video and being completely floored by it. You Watch it and you. You think that there's only one thing that a video like this could mean but that doesn't make sense and and she still trying. She says that while she tended to come back in January she's picked up an injury and social have to postpone her comeback a little bit but she's still intending to come back to the WTO tour in two thousand twenty. They'll be one of the big moments to look forward to funniest moments on the W T tour in twenty nineteen. We were there for one of them right. We were primary sources for one of them late night in Cincinnati Sloan Stevens playing Yulia Putin say about on center court and this much is going well. Late and Julia was on her typical bullshit. And we're like are we. Are we going to go to this? Press conference will we even still be on site you know? We didn't have deadlines for papers or the we kind of set our own deadline demands on us at a tournament are different from folks. Who are you know doing other things? But we went to that press conference and Sloan Stevens opened up Well she basically ripped apart Putin. Save for anyone who is listening. Yeah she said if it's not one scam it's another and that is one of the moments whatever category you. WanNa put it in. It is one of the moments of twenty nine thousand nine. If it's not one scam it's another one of my favorite. Funny moments was Serena Williams flopping around on the ground during her doubles match with any Murray when she had lost her footing. The camera by the Net Carter just yet. She attempted to get back up and then she was like no no no no let me duck again and she was really just rolling around in her kind of on the ground. I don't know if this is a funny moment I guess. In retrospect it is me being duped by new me Osaka in Cincinnati. Ju- REMEMBER THAT VIDEO. That came out toward the end of the year with Jimmy Kimmel. I think it was our violent Fallon right I think it was Jimmy Fallon tonight show and this weird thing was happening in Cincinnati. Where in these press conferences players were giving these strange answers? Maria Sharapova and team were talking about how balls caddy pringles cans or something really esoteric stuff. A people were speaking in rhymes and like High Kuzin. Shit what is going on and so I asked me over this question and she starts to answer then she stops inches says. Do you WanNa hear a joke. I'm like well a yeah. You're let's hear a joke. Even they're gonNA answer my question anymore. We just kind of roll with the floor and then you come and find out a couple months later that you've been had at it's been used as like super cuts on the synthetic show. At least they did not have my own. Can you imagine and Our listener at Willows Court contributed this one collins vocals at the Australian Open. And how was this twenty nineteen? I wasn't its way I keep thinking this was almost two years ago. No that was so serious. Daniel Collins playing a match against Angelique Kerber eventually beating her. But a few she screamed. Come on basically right and Angie's face at the net which is one of my favorite moments in maybe tennis history up because it was just so brazen with which is to say people were trying it with engine. Kerber this year. I know that she went through because she was getting all kinds of ship from all kinds of directions from all kinds of player right but a few of the respondents noted that that drama queen thing that dust up in Miami derailed her year. You could argue. She did reach a. I think it was a grass court. Final a bit later but she has dropped off completely coaching carousel. We've made mention of quite a few of these before but we will put them all in this one spot. Take it away James. Sasha Baron you may have heard of him he's been on the show before he and they only broke up after the Australian Open. He hooked up with his family. Friend kicking Madonna Vich as started work. Yes I I mean come. They know what I mean as literally as soon as that. Coaching relationship dissolved. Kiki started when Kiki won the doubles at the W. T. Finals and the Fed Cup title for France. Now it's just been announced Like one or two days ago that Sasha will now be working with Diana Estrada which is huge. Someone who has limitless potential seems one of the bizarre moments of twenty nine teen was the whole Komori. Sloan Stevens reunited and it feels so grimy. We sat across come. Murray in Cincinnati at the coaches roundtable. And he was telling us about how. There's nothing but love between him and Sloan and that you know things just didn't work out. It was a matter of communication. And you've got to communicate better with people and at the same time he wasn't really saying many positive things about Monica plea in that round table. So if you were to read the tea leaves there. It was like wow. This is not gonNA end well and the end came the next week. I mean it was days later. He was working out with Monica in Cincinnati. Monica alleges that there were dealings behind her back during that week and it was announced the following. Week that he I the announcement was he's leaving Monica. He's not going to be traveling to the. Us Open which he claimed she did not know about and then shortly after that they announced that sloane come out were reunited. Do you remember in the off season. In twenty eighteen into nineteen. Venus Williams cleaned her entire house of personnel David wit her longtime coach. Jermaine Jenkins who was then without a job..

"Well, and that I think, you know, candidly, probably cost her the CEO position, you see signs of increased revenues on the women's side. Certainly I mean, again, he sort of I thought a kindly deflected the question. But no question the money's coming out of Asia. I mean that this year and championship in Chen, where they're gonna offer the winner more money than any major is the the money's clearly in Asia. And I think it becomes a question of how much do you go chasing, the the dollar when as he said the American market is very important the top players come from Europe. They're no they're no majors in Asia. How much does it benefit the tour sort of transplant itself to to the far east certainly it helps short-term financially, but at that in the best interest it it's a lot. It's a tricky balance. And I think. You're right. It's not like the NBA, and it's not like the New York Knicks, and you don't have the NBA is strengthened when certain teams do. Well, when the overall again, I'll use the word product is strong tennis is a little bit different where you have this chain of tournaments throughout the year that at some level are interdependent, but they're really their own separate entities. Indian Wells caliber of tournaments like as you said. I mean Indian Wells the fifth major, quote, unquote, it a wanna be their own. Exactly, exactly. It's almost there. They are pitted against other tournaments in a way that the Knicks and the nets necessarily are. But better smoothies, and you know, car services, can we keep supplying? So that the players keep saying this is the best tournament ever suspect. A lot of tournaments wish they had the. The the P and L pressures or lack thereof at Indian Wells has. But I, you know, eighty wells is very different business model than Cincinnati, which is very different business model for Madrid. And I think all of this goes to your question, which I think is really good when which is at the end of the day. What is the WTA tour? It's an individual sport the players are individual brands tournaments are individual events. Yes. You can sell TV as as a package, but even that becomes problematic and the majors aren't part of this deal. So at the end of the day. I mean, I think the very first question that Steve Simon probably asked himself is what is this product. And I speak of at the end of the day. What is it? What are my assets? What am I selling in this in this global marketplace? We even talk about that. Which is when the PGA tour went went golf threads its way mostly through one country. That's a lot easier sale. It's very hard to find a title sponsor for the T tour when it is as global as it is. Is there for global economy takes and it gives and sometimes if the tour I think we're more geographically restricted we've talked sometimes about regional tours and tennis, maybe that's an easier, sell, but he's got to sell a product that resonates in Singapore. But also resonates in Madrid Cincinnati. So it's it's a tough job. And I would argue that on balance he's quitting himself, quite well for sure we're happy to have him on happy to have on. Okay. We are going to have another guest coming up soon. But that will do it for this week as the Tennessee's in wines down, Jamie. Thank you. If people were interested in subscribing or leaving reviews, where might they go. They can on apple podcasts and click subscribe and leave us nice little review. I had someone the other day. I read something where somebody said that when talking about certain events that happened in the sport, we should. Not always assume that people listening know every detail of how the event transpired. So I think it was a good point. Sometimes I think we jump into conversations especially with guests. And we talk about things that happened in previous tournaments, or you know, drama that's happening. And where assuming that all the listeners know, but we should probably give some background information here. And there are even if it's something that you, and I are talking about good toy voice. Good thing. I got was that sometimes we assume our audiences perhaps more American than it is and things like Leslie Jones spoofing..

But we've seen periods of absences from Serena, of course, it's, you know, we're going on two years, and she laughed when a major I think again, it's been in a sneaky kind of way niobe Asaka was was most recent you look at the last six or seven major champions. They've all been different players. And I think you're right. A lot of the most competitive matches Lauren Davis Hala p-, they haven't even been. Talking about finals, we've had some very nice women's finals as well. The Torino Sokha controversy was a big talking point. But the flip side is that a twenty year old Japanese player is a grand slam champion in the hottest thing in a sport right now. So interesting times for for the women's tour. I mean, I'd like to see this translate a little bit more on a balance sheet. I think that. Yeah. Things are probably training in the right direction. Homies Sokha was a big winner after the US open. I'm not sure the WTA necessarily fared as well as as a player individually. That's always been the case. Of course, the Williams sisters Warnaco Antequera Cova at one point had allegedly more in gross revenues in the entire WTI tour. So I think sponsors a lot of times are banking on a player and not necessarily an institution, which is always gonna be priming individual sports. Yeah. Go use. And he says it the product are, you know, even the the name w it's tore right? And so I always thought it was an interesting thing. I mean. It's not the National Basketball tore or the national football tour. I always thought that was an interesting way of, you know, presenting it, and you guys talk about it as a product it just kind of reminds you that. Oh, yeah. You know, this this is a business especially for someone like Stephen his position. It's a weird business to right because at some level these individual turnament so their own businesses, right? Indian Wells wanted to sponsor and here comes be Perry bone. That's great. I'm not sure Indian Wells necessarily that invested in how the other events fair the players are individual brands and businesses Maria Sharapova Asaka sort of go to Williams, they all. Want their own deals and have their own deals as they should. But does that come at the expense of the W T A as this entity as the circuit Steve Simon's predecessor was supposed to sell and she didn't sell particularly..

"Even before the incident happened the radiance on it was extremely high. In fact, I believe it was the highest rated one of the of tournament just like the bachelorette. I think of Wimbledon was also the highest rated for Wimbledon as well. So the profile was certainly growing it shows the strength of obviously, Serena Williams, and what she means to our sport and our tour. But obviously anytime you get stories like that it certainly raises raises the profile as well. Because of the debate and everything that surrounds it. We're not looking for that. There are other stories we would much prefer to have and be talking about. And hopefully, that's where we we. Evolved from this. You mentioned labor Cup were you in Chicago. I was not in Chicago now, but it seems like a real story in the tennis ether dysphoric has been these these global competitions and. Who knows of tennis has the capacity for three of them, which which are now on the table. But regardless I is this something WTA's looking at you've been a bit on the sidelines, which might not be a bad thing. But is there any reason why these would not work for women's tennis as well? Well, no, I think that fans fans love team competitions. I think that that there's I mean look at the Ryder Cup look at the labor Cup. You know, look at at the excitement that comes around, you know, Davis Cup ties and Fed Cup ties in certain countries and everything you can see the passion. You can see the patriotism and the players enjoy it as well. We would love to we have been on the sidelines, but we would love to to have a team competition on the women's side as well. The challenge with it is one of the reasons we've been looking at it a little bit differently as as you reflected earlier, we have an extremely full calendar, and we have to I don't want to shove event within the calendar that has a detrimental effect on the other sanctions and members and events that we currently have. So we're certainly oath. Open to looking at these. There are options that have been put in front of us that we will continue to look at. But I wanna make sure that it is integrated within the calendar that makes sense from a flow perspective, and we can get the athletes there and build on something that can be special versus just stuffing something and the talent that has other negative flow on offense. I always wanted this, but more so now than ever at this this cultural moment were having what challenges do you confront the male executive overseeing a female league..
