It was a great reminder of all of the different reasons that that people love during our wimbledon retrace it campaign summer we saw people celebrating and bringing it to life in absolutely away that was completely unique to them and just as important to that and as somebody else's said some people they create a tennis coats for some people they play tennis but some people they created. The most extraordinary display baked goods but others. They dress that children up in a source.

The edges of the wimbledon brand in order to be as accessible as we can possibly make it also staying true to who we are and one of the brilliant things that we have is character on.

Sort of apologize but also at a small his face And then he takes it to jackovitch wins. The first set six four minutes. It's amazing really. Yeah i thought he handled himself really well and i also thought jackovitch just hit his stride at a point and just he was like a race car. Accelerating away it. Yeah that much will be good for jovic in the end. I think i mean the sit down. After losing that first set he had he he was swirling with the an internal inferno novak djokovic and he just decided nah. We're not gonna do thus again. Let's win the sets now. And lo and behold he did but did not give up. I was always impressed with jack. Draper queens. He showed me something again today. I'm i'm really impressed to them. There's a lot more about him than i than i realized. Fischel yeah totally. I will echo. What i said at queen's the challenge now is doing this not at queens not wimbledon on their stages in the middle of nowhere. When it's hard nobody's watching. Yes forty degrees and everything loves nobody points and from what we've seen i think he i think he probably can. It must be easy straight away. But he's certainly got something about him hasn't he I read the joke of h hit. Twenty five aces or something today and just had an incredible serving hits a game at the end of the third set. He hit a game. Full of aces land. They which it was like he was setting up balkans and just knocking them over in the corners as the service i think. That's an underrated. In tennis novak djokovic serve yeah is spillway places it the point score and came on board and i don't put it all down to gore. And but he's the one who put a massive emphasis on that shotton. I mean there were stressful moments jakovich. There is stress there. I just i do agree with you. That he just won't let it get the better of him this tournament but there is intense stress. Well i mean look is a is an extreme competitor anyway. He was in. Turn what i enjoy about him. He's the different versions of him. He was internalizing all of it for quite a while trying to y ride the waves and the moment he broke through identity but i think in the third said when the moment he broke through and got what he wanted when he was under better pressure he just erupted with celebration and and it was great to actually because he was being pushed in that moment. And he's he. He found the answer and then wash. Sustain was sent to court. We've seen at this point. We've seen not an upset but a surprisingly great match to kick things off and then we do get an upset all. Was it an upset if you take into account the fact that we will need patrick of had an ankle. She'd had that thing where she fell off. The step at the media thing did reach of final since then and she is a two-time champion. Say i have disgraced myself today with predictions. I mean i really did think there was a moment today. When petric who. I've said everybody will win the title and he was out on the first day and also yanic center lost him in mcchord finals. There was a moment where i just saw at just withdrawal. Because i'm i feel safe embarrassed. It's just pathetic is came up to just just to give davidson companies. Throw you under the bus as well. Oh yeah i copied pam shriver and put oh drive is full to rule under the past com have join us copyright see you next week pam. His matt I didn't see much of the match. I saw bits here and there. But i'm very much here for slain stevens being a thing on gross attorney senior plan. Grasp before she's it was. It was kind of special actually to see horon sent a coup because it felt like a stage on which she belongs yet a stage. I've never seen her grace before. I mean i think she probably has played on center. But i can't remember it and she certainly hasn't in recent days and i thought she was exceptional just as such a smooth. She do controlled performance. I mean mainly returning like novak djokovic. I mean putting with tons backup. Patrick of his fate which she is not comfortable with at all and yet just it was just this control. About so this calmness. It was such a clean clinical performance And yes she of just been reading some of her press conference transcript and she's got real perspective now. I think on her career and she understands that you are gonna have ups and downs. And she's had probably as many as any top plywood. And i think she's getting better at managing them and waiting for her tennis to come back and she knows that it is. It's that you know the great signs in paris and hair again. She started this tournament and just it's just great to see her kind of glowing light back. Yeah i feel like these. the is able to flow. That's the the good bits or we've had this conversation. Or whatever the peak is is just what is never just never happened to coincide with when wimbledon is and it it just might be so so often inexperienced players or more than the no more inexperienced players on gross full down on is the movement is not the speed of the court it is the it's the movement See stephanie sits bass who. We'll talk by in a moment. And i just feel like slain stevens me so easily in fluidly in effortlessly that she couldn't hide tennis on any she quicksands. Yeah and you know. Slake merrill as lying about john mcenroe would would win luna I feel like slain. Stevens can can move on anything say lookout. She's coming got to back it up.

Murray his the match next onto central. And it's the one that we're all still kind of boskin. The the buzz of a space. But while stevens was beating petrus stephanus it to pass was over. Wrong number one. Losing in three straight sets to frances tiafoe refunds. To me i think our collective semifinalist we all have said we've doubts about and yet and we all agreed. That was a tough draw last night. Trying to trying to of talk ourselves into picking him to lose and all of us agree. You wouldn't i just thought cisa pass has become such a good tennis player that even if he still adapting to the grass his just general tennis level will be enough to take him through. This draw. but i was totally wrong about that. Look i think there's a lot going on in six passes. Life at the moment is his grandmother has died. He's just lost a really heartbreaking. French open final. That can take a while to get over. he's probably not.

"Really of larry just punching and pulling that i started making some of the comments saying publicly how. I felt that i felt they were on the wrong side of history that same year. Venus williams penned an op. Ed in the times of london which is pretty scathing toward wimbledon. We started lobbying. Some members of parliament which led to tony blair on the floor of parliament in june of two thousand six basically saying women who was on the wrong side of history and he'd like to see what prize money which shocked the people going on clump and all that i had no idea he was going to say that we've been dealing with tessa jowl and some other labor in other secretaries. But the fact that tony blair saw the way the winds were blowing. Thought wimbledon was wrong made the comment. I think that was the final straw. Two thousand six hundred ninety rise many. I think after that it was just you know it was inevitable and we kinda laid low and sure enough in february of two thousand seven. I got the phone call saying tomorrow. Were announced equal prize money. Congratulations i mean. Talk about pressure mounting at stay Yeah i mean once once tony blair's getting involved They must have felt really under-seige wimbledon but the op-ed that venus williams right was was huge. I think with was really really big for setting setting a tone And i think it's important that we that we read it to you. Yeah so this was published on june. The twenty sixth two thousand six. It's wimbledon has sent me a message. I'm only a second class champion and it's long letter but i think it's important. We read it in full. And it's behind a paywall still. Isn't it on the on the time so it's not always that easy to find so here it is. Have you ever been let down by someone that you had long admired respected and looked up to little in. Life is more disappointing particularly when that person does something that goes against the very heart of what you believe is right and fair. When i was little girl and serena and i played matches together. We often pretended that we're in the final of famous tournament. More often than not. We imagine we were playing on the central wimbledon. There's two young sisters from compton. California were wimbledon champions many times years before our dreams of playing their became reality. There is nothing like playing. at wimbledon. you can feel the footprints of the legends of the game men and women that have graced those coats. There isn't a player who doesn't dream of holding off the wimbledon trophy. I've been fortunate to do so three times including last year. That win was the highlight of my career to date the culmination of so many years of work and determination and at a time when most people didn't consider me to be a contender so the decision of the all england lawn tennis club yet again to treat women as lesser players the men undeserving the same amount of prize. Money has a particular sting. I'm disappointed not for myself. But for all of my fellow women players who have struggled so hard to get here and who just like the men give that all on the courts of s w nineteen on disappointed for the great legends of the game. Such as billie. Jean king martina navratilova and chris evert who have never stopped fighting for equality and disappointed that the home of tennis is sending a message to women across the world that we are inferior with power and status comes responsibility well when within has power and status. The time has come for it to do the right thing by paying men and women the same sons of prize money..

So when i mean i understand that the time because it was wimbledon as well the british press were rallying behind them. How did you deal with that situation of oversee no. It's it's difficult to get your point across publicly. I suppose if wimbledon have got a lot of a lot of media behind them wimbledon done so many things right that In the history of tennis nine hundred and nine percent that was the one percent that was wrong And again it was not a question. First of all the british media. Were very very kind to me. They were very they were very personally. I mean.

"Talked about the decision today overall. I think it's a wise decision because we start. Kids had a chance to play the season for well over fifty percent of the teams in the country. Well well I don't know the exact percentage their season was over and two. I think it was the right decision. It's tough that these kids didn't get a chance to do that but I think we could move on a lot better than a spring sport. And that's why I felt that what they did for the spring sports was so appropriate and hopefully the schools will be able to financially support that I mean and It'll be interesting to see. How many kids do come back Because you know you move on well and this is going to be an interesting thing to keep an eye on. Also I'm interested in the precedent set. I set it on the at the time. One of the callers actually convinced me on this but part of the reason they were able to do sports and given extra years because they weren't ever played if there is any thought that the college football season might be affected. Can you imagine the precedent this sets if they're going to suddenly try match scholarships and suddenly give everybody an extra year of eligibility in the fall?

Here's what's the bad all these young folks out here. They're the ones that don't support it. People like me I could care less. It was perfect. Sixteen Games sixteens. Leave it alone. Let me ask you one question when the giants beat the Patriots in the Super Bowl to ruin the undefeated season. Did you like it or not? No okay I mean if if Travis this consistent I'll give you credit my friend if drivers is consistent because I hear you what we're doing is we're allowing more eight teams into the playoffs so there is a level. Congratulations you made it through. And I appreciate your take on Travis. You know I I look at it and say we typically sports fans how many people were rooting for the Patriots. Perfect season to be ruined right. Because we don't want excellence. We don't want the top overall team to dominate. Everybody win we want something. Unexpected happens so often. We want a wildcard team to occasionally win the Super Bowl. Now I do think there's a clear advantage and as much as you're saying it's a participation award the top overall seed will be the only seized gets a by by being the only gets a by. I would argue that yes. They're opening the playoff up more than a participation award calibers but they're giving the absolute best in advantage that might be absolutely unsurpassable. We'll keep breaking down with more your take plus some thoughts on Aaron Rodgers next..

"Has the easiest route in my opinion. That is the Philadelphia Eagles. Why because this coming season three teams in their division. The other three all have new coaching staff Washington the giants and the cowboys and they will not have the benefit of a full. Ota's and maybe even a full training camp to implement what they WANNA do. That division is going to be bad. The cowboys are taking a step backwards not forwards. They've gotten worse. And the new coaches behind the eight ball when the starts and the eagles who are the model of consistency and stability and have the most stable quarterback situation and everything else in that division. I think have a chance to run the table in that division. A great chance to get a one-seat because it's the easiest division the NFC and that by will mean everything so to me that team that benefits the most from this is Philadelphia. I take your take on. Espn RADIO AND ESPN. News compelling cases made by all of them. I think Stephen as got some points about the bottom end of the play offs. And how it could benefit team Tampa Bay Green. He's got a point though that it benefits the number one overall seed the most. And that's why he's got the right concept and the wrong team because the number one overall seed next year in the AFC is likely to again. Be the Kansas. Sorry last series of the Baltimore Ravens to me. It's likely to be the Kansas City chiefs so in my mind. The chiefs are the ones that benefit the most is the opportunity to get the one seed the only by in the playoffs. And we're GONNA see that once he only gets more and more powerful because they are the only team that gets a bye. We want your thoughts on. Nfl playoff expansion. You'll love it. You hate it you want more. Want less of it. What are your thoughts? Triple eight say. Espn eight eight eight. Seven two nine three seven seven six months. You guys also tweeted me. Read some of those tweets in just a minute but before we do any of that I want to get a little bit of expertise here. We mentioned earlier at the beginning of the show was some of the breaking news that Wimbledon has been canceled postponed. It's been canceled. There's nobody better to help us break down what that means what had happened then. Espn tennis analyst. Patrick McEnroe who joins US now? Patrick I appreciate your time. First and foremost you have corona virus. So how are you right now? Let's Jason Thank you very much feeling side. I have some symptoms pull over a week ago about ten days ago so in my basement and I didn't get the test results back just yesterday Took a while over a week to book test our favorites. I was finally able to do So you could use. I fill rate the bad news patrick. We're going to try and get a better line form. Give us one second was even get Patrick McEnroe back. And it's important to note as he said you know he's started feeling symptoms. He had to book the test. Took quite a while and then it took a week to get the results back. It's reminder when we talk about all of these athletes that were sitting here saying hey just test everybody and let's see who's clear and let's see who we can get to play against each other. It's a reminder that right now there are more important places for those tests to go also a reminder for Wimbledon specifically. It has been canceled not postponed. It was scheduled to take place between the end of June June twenty ninth July Twelfth. When you think about what that means. That's Wimbledon flat out looking at and saying. Hey it's not going to be right. It's not going to be the right situation. We'RE GOING TO GET AHEAD. Of cancelling it's the second staggering cancelation. We've seen when you factor in the fact that we also saw the Olympics. And when you when you see the Olympics come in and say hey. It's not postponement until next year. It's when you see that portion of Wimbledon doing this where they are now it's a reminder of how severe all of this is telling me we have. Patrick is okay so we patrick back. So we're we're getting remote locations here so Patrick you're telling us it took over a week to get the results. You just got the results. How are you feeling now while I'm feeling good? I've actually felt fine for well over a week but obviously taken a lot of precautions here even before I have the test so I've been self quarantined in my basement. Luckily I've got a basement. That's pretty comfortable. My wife has been an absolute trooper taken care of the House and are three. Were all Doing online school now. Everybody's doing well I feel good and I'm hoping that once they get through this Fourteen days or just a couple of days away. I'll be able to be back back with the family. But luckily they're all feeling good and healthy and no symptoms whatsoever so for somebody that's in the thick of it right now. It's such a personal level. What's your reaction to Wimbledon canceling? Well this was not a surprise Jason based on what we've been hearing the last couple of weeks obviously it's hitting Europe About as hard as it's here in the US perfectly here the New York area so it's really not that surprising you know the difference from Wimbledon opposed to the French Open with the clay and obviously the US Open with the hardcore is not only the weather. A huge factor Just to be able to play outdoors but also the nature of the grass court surface. So it's very difficult for the club that just sort of pick another Spot in say later in the summer and the fall because keeping the grass in tip top shape. It'd be handled. Two weeks of play is part of it. Obviously they're all driving up so they've got different challenges other than what the. Usda has the US Open in the French tennis federation. So I think that England the All England club made really the only official. They could make a punch in the gut to sports fans but particularly those of us. Jason in tennis world I mean. Wimbledon is like You know it's our super bowl. It's our world series It's it's our NBA. Finals all rolled into one and the tradition of Wimbledon The history of Wimbledon. But also the way they've embraced. Excuse me the future and technology. They've really found the balance. Just right so. It's a huge hit in the gut for all of us in the tennis world. We're talking to ESPN TEN Stanley. Patrick McEnroe I take care take on. Espn radio I'm Jason Fitz given what you're saying. Was there any logic to maybe waiting to make this decision to make sure it was a decision that had to be made now. Well obviously it was supposed to start anew. Just about three months but You know it seems that in England. They're just sort of beginning their challenge with this Much the way we were here certainly in the New York area a couple of weeks ago so it sounds like It's GONNA get worse before it gets better over there. And I think Jason near the issue the issue that tennis faces maybe more so than than most other sports is. It's so international and there's players coming obviously from all over the world there's fans coming there's music companies from all over the world so it's it's a little more difficult to control the environment for tennis players and for the fans. Obviously it's going to be tricky to do that here once and we hope it's not too distant future that Major League Baseball and maybe the NBA NHL can get back going again. But for tennis to control all those factors take. It's going to be even more challenging so I'm hearing that the. Us Open is still a possibility. There's about a fifty fifty chance although that number probably goes down the further along we go here toward getting back to normal so You know part of me thinks that there may not be any more professional tennis for the rest of this calendar year. I mean that's just what I'm I'm I'm feeling at this point because again the international nature of essentially everything around the world. Jason will have to be pretty much back to normal. I believe for professional tennis to Stop being up and running again. Talk me through. The athletes mindset on this because we as fans. Obviously you're missing this terribly. Everybody knows that. But what's it like if you're somebody that this is what you've trained for? This is where you are for your entire life. I said this with the Olympics. We sort of under appreciate what it means to an athlete. That's given everything to get to this point and now it goes away. So how how? How does everybody cope with that from a professional level? Well obviously the players are are having to find ways to keep themselves in shape and to keep themselves fifth. And you're seeing standby Ranko. He's he's probably been the most entertaining on his Social media with US showing his workouts and doing multiple stands and cooking himself. Dinner had a party with all of these different looks and the same person. So you know you saw Roger. Federer hit it against a wall recently under snow in on. This was in Switzerland where he lives so the players are obviously having to find ways to keep themselves act like just like all of us are just like everybody is all over the world and obviously we send our thoughts and prayers to the nurses and the doctors and the medical people out there doing their part to try to try to help the people that are really suffering. That are really sick. So the other thing that you have to notice note about the tennis world is in the In the team sports tennis players are independent contractors. They're not making any money through their contracts with with teams. So that's GonNa make it obviously not difficult for the super rich ones. And the people that are hugely successful. Roger Federer Novak Djokovic Serena Williams's but for the average tennis player In addition to just missing opportunity to do what they love to do You know they're hurting. You can also be hurting financially now. Obviously there's plenty of people all over the world that are struggling in many many ways losing their their jobs etc so that's the least of the concerns but that's certainly a factor for the average tennis professional around the world. You can follow me on twitter at Patrick McEnroe. Look first and foremost could healthy my friend. We really appreciate your time. Your incite your honesty and what you're dealing with and really your expertise from what all this means for Wimbledon. Thanks for the time thank you Jason. Thank you everybody. Pm. That's been very supportive of me. And I'm feeling good. Thanks so much. Glad you're feeling good I. This is such a scary time for everybody and look. I continue to say you know. We have to acknowledge at some point. We've seen the Olympics. Go Away at this point until next year we know that Wimbledon is cancelled. You're starting to see deep summer movement and as much as there was a comment from Kirk herbstreit. You know that sort of caught the world on fire talking about will college football comeback. I mean we're starting to ask ourselves the question of when everything will come back to normal for any sport at any level. That's the toughest part of all of this. We just don't have realistic answers. In the meantime all we can do is sort of look for little beacons positively enlightened that comes from the NFL giving playoff expansion. I want your thoughts on it on. Twitter were really divided. John on twitter says is this. Let's get the Dallas cowboys in the playoffs. And is a conspiracy theory. Dax has the big winner in the NFL playoff experiences. The fans more football is a good thing. David SAYS MONEY. Grab Okay with me. Entertainment at the end of the season so whereas Jeffrey says man I don't really care by letting more teams in major sports playoffs are becoming tournaments in the regular season is just seating fewer games but have a longer attorney. Maybe double or triple elimination. Will Jefferson answer to that is because we don't want a real champion? We just want to watch a bunch of sports. I mean that's what it comes down to. Most of. These are not geared towards giving us. The best team is the champion. You'll get bored if we always know that the number one seed is going to win at all. Although I would argue that this playoff expansion is going to have more teams the opportunity to play which is great for everybody. I'm a raiders fan. My team stinks. Most of the time. Right so what do I want some angle that lets me have more? Hope for the playoff for the raiders. Every year yes but it's also gonNA make the end of the regular season more interesting because we're going to be fighting for the top overall seed. It means so much. You're not sitting starters because you've got the two seat you're going after the one seat pain in Cincinnati. What's your take on? Nfl playoff expansion. Yeah I just think that the they're awarding mediocrity at this point. I don't I think there were already too many teams in the playoffs. To begin with I think adding two more ridiculous like We're the chiefs last year. The second seed in the AFC so they would have had to play The steelers they didn't they didn't deserve that they worked hard and for their record and the steelers ended up at eight. Eastern rewarding mediocrity. Well paying I appreciate the call and I get what you're saying that you're rewarding mediocrity. I still think that the chiefs would've won that game though. So but you are giving yourself more opportunity like we call it rewarding mediocrity until it's march madness and suddenly you're seeing these huge upset in the first round and then we're not sitting there saying Oh my God. How did this barely winning team get into the tournament?.
