At that moment you know the which John Never had a problem when he was winning, it was always when he was very close or when he was losing and when he started to do this. Wherever you wear in the other side of the net, you didn't even exist. And this is when he was getting energy. So that was that was, his game was the mind game he was playing I realized late. You know when. I started to work on late in my career and when I was coaching, so the part of the mind game things that you thought about getting four forehands, a back ends.

"He said, it's politics, and and it is politics. And I think that's what frustrates the tennis fan and the likes of of Yannick Noah for whom the Davis Cup has nothing at all to do with politics. None of tennis has anything to do with politics. It's just about four hundred backhands and passion and emotion and enjoy and yet, you know, you actually behind the scenes that the decisions the that. We're unable to be involved in actually a lot of the time necessarily come down to a whole lot of boring politics. And that's where a sort of disconnect comes in. That's why you know, you have Yannick Noah talking about his sort of distaste for the the money in vote because for him those things are so alien to everything that he knows the Davis Cup to be. And I get that. I get it. But, you know, politics, pretty ghostly, but they're also, unfortunately, a necessary evil, only, you could also say that Catherine. And his team the not exactly struggling for few quit other. So he can kinda Ford to tighten that view. You could argue, but but I get the point. I I mean when I got an out I was right behind it to be honest and probably overly hastily. So because a lot of the response we got really took me aback from analysts knows about how many people which is devastated at what they would lose, and they will lose. Yes there thankfully that. There is at least kind of some home in a way earlier early in the year. But there's no question for particular all the British fans that we we have listening to us the there's a lot of upset there because that's their chance to watch tennis locally. And they just love it a love the Davis Cup. I do get all of all of that. Now, I still feel that on balance. This is this is the way to go. I just hope they get it right in the end. So it's going to be. Fascinating evolves. That wasn't the end of the press. I we'll say because there was quite amount of Yana talking in French, which you in Catherine understand, which I I so what went on. Yeah. Well, that was good question where he was asked. Basically, you know, the roller captain is kind of to get the to get the most at if you apply. Do you think you did that this weekend that he he wasn't well, Catherine? What would you say it wasn't? It wasn't very happy that question. He did it in his sort of soothing seething Yannick Noah tones, but he was pussy confrontational with the journalists that question combative, and he sort of straight back saying well have you been watching the matches? The my players have been playing in the past three months, and there was a bit of back and forth and. Journalist kinda set while. No, I've not seen them all. But yes, I've been watching and Janet now set what I've seen them all and I've analyzed the mole. And I honestly think that this weekend my players performed better than they have been for the past three months and kind of to their maximum by stone, therefore moments Geel, Simone's six one record against Merrill, Lynch, the which he tweeted without comment relentless this morning. Yes. Yeah. Well, that has been the biggest of elephant in the room, hasn't it? The fact that you know, this is now the second time that unit now is French team of loss to Croatia. His only is only two defeats in this. Third caps. Say paired form has both been against Croatia twenty sixteen and now the final, and you know, France have had the Maron Chile disruptor in Iran seven she'll Sema six one head to head record. And. Yet. He's not played. And now it went into a bit of detail about about why that is and basically as far as I understood it. Does seem all would would want to kind of work different later Yannick Noah Yannick, Noah kind of chooses his team kind of a last minute was she'll seem on would want to know quite a lot and advance..

"And that's kind of what are the French plasma signs that, you know, something something is going to be lost that they won't be able to replicate through, you know, through not having the home and away ties throughout the whole year and having a neutral venue for a fine. Oh, it just will be different. My feeling is that. It probably probably didn't change. Yeah. But I'm not sure what needs to be quite so radical they had tried to push through less radical changes without any success of maybe that was why they went so radical to try and to try and just Jiang something. But it does feel like it's lost a little bit of its essence. I do agree with the French players when they say that marrying Shelley made an interesting point about, you know, one of the benefits of is is the fact that a lot more money now will be hopefully going to the smaller federations. And you know, Yannick Noah has experienced the best of the Davis Cup rarely he he doesn't know what it's like for some of those smaller nations, necessarily, so hopefully now with the investment, you can help small the nations and put it into junior tennis, and all that side of it, which makes the IT episode of pushing this good thing, and hopefully it will be hopefully, the money does get that. But you know, the other side of it is when you are at a tie like the one we've just had you know, which one go down as I- spectacular. Davis Cup tie. You know, that was probation with dominant in the singles it wasn't. It wasn't a sort of an all time classic the doubles as I said yesterday was fantastic. But even so it felt, you know, just like everyone they're cared about it and. For that weekend. It was a special weekend. And. That to me it felt when you're there fairly healthy. But oversee there's all the other sort of things that go with it. You know, the fact that it wasn't on TV in the UK and the top players have chosen to play, and then kind of move on from it and all the various other issues. So you know, I feel conflicted about it. That was a sadness today leaving the stadium having that it won't be like that again. But equally I am also intrigued to see how this new place out. Very well said both my view, I'm also conflicted. I what I would say before I give my own personal view is is just the I think we can get a little bit lost in the seductive words of Janik. No and all the French team and partly because they're so passionate. They they mean it so much they they're in love with the divest Cup. And I don't want it to change. And I have such a lot of respect for that. Because they brought so much to it. I feel similarly when I listened to lighten Hewitt talk from an Australia perspective. These people are always have had their hand up. They have every right to give their view because they've given everything of themselves to this competition and said that they have all the credibility in the Bank as a result of that having said, which does Myron Chile ch and he came on the tennis podcast in February and said, he thinks these plans are very good plans.

"But you can tell that the whilst he knows the job isn't done. He's got to get another point his team. Have he knows my who and have good. But he fails doesn't he as though he's over the hump here. Yeah. No. He's sort of the hard work has been done. He I mean he wanted to nail on on day one. And he's got it. And he's got it. So emphatically sort of got the feeling like they've almost crushed France is spirit. Just the way they've. The way they've dominated today. And does make you wonder what they might do tomorrow. Because as he mentioned in that interview, they were also tune up in the semi semifinal in in Zada against the USA. And then and that was cherishing Chile. Putting them to nil out and then sets up as well. Yeah. And then they ended up in fifth rubber Pavic Dodig lost to Brian and Harrison, and then Chile Schloss to query, and then suddenly it was down security. So maybe he's going to try and go for the kill tomorrow. And maybe that means including Chile Chile said, he's ready to play doubles. No, maybe including Chile doesn't make that a stronger doubles team. But it's something that he can think about well. You mentioned that semifinal Dodig and Pavitt who lost seven six in the fifth set to Brian and Harrison that made it to one then Chile law. Lost in four cents to query. And that was kind of where all the problems seem to really start this run of losing matches when he was a head. And then it went down to a fifth rubber with charge beating tear photo from two sets to one down to win six three in the fifth. Having won the first six cents of the tire in Katherine you've seen so many of these Davis Cup ties. Now you've seen the one up close last year. Something can happen on doubles day content. It really can turn even even something that seems as one-sided this. If the French pair of my who never managed to conjure a win tomorrow. Just imagine what it would be like for Croatia to try to get over the line on Sunday. Yeah. Without question. Can you imagine say my who I best ceiling historic victory tomorrow? Can you imagine the atmosphere inside that stadium on Sunday as the French team stunned? They're all Menam. Nick Lima who presumably in even more floods as well as twenty thousand people around them sing sing along with limousine as I mean, it's going to be even more difficult probably times ten for those Croatian guys to make it just about the tennis on Sunday than it than it was today. So say it's not over. I am I think Croatia extremely heavy favorites from this position. And they've given me every reason particularly Borna charge. I think to to believe that they are so up to the task of if seeing this through of not letting the occasion get to them. But, but there is something about Yannick Noah, the something about the most is something about that that stadium in Lille. You know, this about the Davis Cup, isn't that? And as you say particularly doubles day, so stranger things have happened. But I do think creche. Just giving me goosebumps describe in that in the who the Marseille as seen how 'cause I can just imagine that picturing that Catherine stranger things have happened. Matt have they has this ever happened before in the Davis Cup final to love up to not win once in nineteen thirty nine when it was the challenge, round and Australia. USA challenge is when you didn't have to play anything to get there, isn't it? You just because you'd want it before you got straight into the final. Yeah. Do you think Yannick no is trying to dig out video is Jim nineteen thirty six..

"I mean, I just watched the first set of that today. I thought how is this guy not made a really deep run yet the French Open because it's all there. Yeah. I think he's been struggling to know what to do with his game to know whether. Struggling to reach a level of comfort with this game. I think he sort of tried to an weapons to it. Autism feel like he has to hit harder than than comes naturally to. But I think yeah, listen to to grandma look the look at the trans in tennis the lost ten years his his natural game. You know, if he can he can make the most of it is is enough. I think to to get him to fulfill his potential to get him to. Sunny grand, slam semifinals possibly finals, given the, you know, they're going to be a winning 's in men's tennis in in years to come and light that I think he's a thinker. Isn't he born a church, and sometimes that can work against bows? I think maybe he's possibly over things over the is, you know, you had a lot of success very early those victories over he beaten adults Weiss didn't any beat Murray. And and it will came. And that was at a time. And there wasn't his next gen you know, he was the first one to come through that everyone. Everyone suddenly panicked. Okay. Finally got a guy that can take over from federal del. Don't worry guys the panic saver. We we've got a guy, and yeah, it was it was before varies even emerged. So there was an awful lot heaped on his shoulders. And I think he's sort of taken all to come to terms with all of that with with how his game fits and how it works. He's been through a lot of coaches as an E Thomas Hansen miles MacLagan. Yeah. He's he's really he's spent a while figuring things out, and I'm so pleased that he's getting that because of a really good time for him. Yeah. I think he's an interesting champ. And also, you mentioned how composed he was that was that was particularly impressive because he he actually said he was feeling quite nervous partly because he he missed the twenty. Sixteen Davis Cup final throwing jury, and it's been playing on his mind for a few weeks because he's actually he's actually carrying a bit of an injury. He went off Cole explained that he's been having since Shanghai. So that was kind of weighing on his mind. But how serious says it's painful, but he, but it's not a problem. I mean to me that sounds like a contradiction. Really? But he he he's playing it down. He says he can play on it for five or six hours. No problem. Yeah. I mean, but it is there, and it has been on his mind. I think it's in the sort of Appalachia area. So yeah, he was nervous today. But he didn't really show it because he was he was exceptional for. Fortunately, he's got more stomach than Solihull Simon or I would never managed to get my win Maron Schiller's Catherine has finally won a match without a wobble. I was waiting for David. Even when he was points against and didn't he just thought we we go here we go. Yeah. And honestly guys love fifteen down. And I think right. It's coming. But luckily, he was so good today. Unfortunately, Sanga is sort of so able to to penetrate him on of the that. I don't think he he felt the jeopardy. The. It's the jeopardy that sends his mind into a spin sends him into the choking spiral is an and I think you have a near enough the cliff edge to start feeling that I think he felt so in control throughout the whole thing that he was never anywhere near the precipice. So yeah, I mean, that's probably doing him to you know, it was because he was so good that he he never got near the precipice. I mean, just completely dominating bullying aggressive go-round Goran Ivanisevic would have approved of what he saw today. I think he just imposed himself on that much. And didn't didn't give Songa the chance to get inspired. And I'm sure Shoko cryan had a had a part to play in that. That was a good strategy. You know, just no nonsense. Big boy, beefy tennis, don't give the crowd anything to get the teeth into well, joker crying. You mentioned him..

"So he looked on at undercooked today. Didn't they oh big time? Big time undercooked. Yeah. I mean. A couple. I mean, he had the the medical time out between sets two and three. I think it was which went to court for it. I think it was a hip injury. Which is which is a new one, you know, when he pulled out of the practice on cheeser. I'd heard reports that it was the back. Then reports came out yesterday that it was in the shoulder. But then it seemed to me that it was something more in the hip Demane he received treatment on today. So he's oversee, you know, not quite right. He looks like he needs a good preseason to me you need like he looks like he needs to have a good run at training without injury intervening. Yes. So incredibly undercoat is second serve was being eaten for breakfast. And he was just getting I mean Chile played superbly. He served a dream today. So you know, he wasn't really being given anything to get his teeth into. But that made it all the more important that that he was. Real force on his own seventy didn't it didn't feel like that. He didn't feel like a fool, you know, in any way, which is a real side thing to say he gets back though. But it certainly seems too soon. So look, I mean, he's a high risk IRA would captain isn't a Yannick Noah. But that means that when it doesn't pay off you do have questions to answer. Absolutely. And some would say that the best captains are the ones that just get the players playing V, no matter how difficult that might be. And some would say the best captains of the ones that don't let the the player power overrule them. And don't let you know do say to play. All right. Then if you're going to be like that, you know, I don't know the details if the feud with Seema morpheus and whoever else over the years, but but the ones that are strong enough to say, okay, I'm not going to pick. You, you know, Phuc whatever principal reason. So. I didn't necessarily have the answers to the question. But I think if the rest of the final as the way we probably expected to their certainly valid questions into answer born a charge merits. He has made rises this year that I think have gone a little notice we didn't have a podcast on him. When he when he got to one of the big finals a few weeks ago. We did go quite deep into into his emergence. But I just feel like today was another another step in tiredly because this guy I think too many Carol said on Twitter that he used to be so demonstrative. He was he was veins popping out of the neck and fist pumping. All the time. Whenever he would hit winners today. He was so composed wasn't. He he was taking shoddy to the woodshed to use Brad Gilbert, but he was. Doing it quietly calculating Lee. And and he was doing it called bloodly as well. Yeah. Absolutely. Any also serve really well that was that was very noticeable. In Germany, shoddy was actually asked about the improvements that churches made because shoddy I think let the head to head going into this match certainly be an before they had close matches. And he said that church is really improved his serve. He was serving seventy five percent today. And that's kind of been a hallmark of his season. When he had that run in Shanghai that you mentioned he was really serving well when he took out Federer, and yeah, I mean, we've talked a lot about sits pass action ovens. Vera, Evan, you know, probably we should be putting church in that sort of category as well. He's he's maybe not quite as eye catching as those three. But he's very effective. And if you look at the guys who've dominated tennis in the past ten years, maybe. They've all been the best defenders if you like the best movers and church is definitely in that category. And he can up so sting you with his back on the line as well. And he just cool shoddy very cold. A lot of just exposed is movement. Really very well today on clay as well, Catherine..

"But yes, as you said very quickly. Well, it turned the other way because church broke in the very first game And wind. wind. Is about a minute game. Yeah. And he showed he had a couple of double folks. And there was a moment where the big screen zoomed in on Jahic. Now is face. It was grimacing if to say, oh, good Lord. What have I done kind of? And broke. And then he went onto in fifteen points in a row before lavar and say stemmed his authority and eat any never lost it to be honest. I'm from their Croatia in shock and just his back to your point about sort of. Why felt this was a bit of a mismatch? Just looking at the teams know France without their top three singles players this week gas gazing Jude my face and Seema not picked they've got their differences. I think with Yannick Noah, and then he's benched the number four Luca pre. And you've even it up in a situation where Jeremy show these the lowest ranked number one Frenchman to ever play in Davis Cup final and Sanga the lowest ranked number two against two players who've been in the top ten this year. So it kind of play true to form. I think the thing about the Davis Cup is Janet no has expression way says you you try. Control everything you can control. And then you you just hope for of madness in the match. But the madness never came. They were relying on that to disrupt church disruption. They needed the fans they needed all the background elements, but really church in Chile that such a good job of just stripping back those elements and just treating it like a normal match, and they were the superior players. And and that's how it played out. Come through. That's really sorry to. Yeah. I think that's really interesting. I think. No choice to make it about so much. Moving tennis doesn't he talked yesterday about his mystical quality? And obviously on paper more than ever he needed to make it about all the things other than the tennis today in the Croatians just said, no, this is going to be about, Janice. And and we're better at tennis, the new, you know, these these players are better than these players. And that's what it's going to be about today bearing in mind cutter. What I was gonna say he's given all of that we make a big play for what an amazing capital unit Noah has been and look his record stands there for all to see champion ninety one champion Ninety-six champion last year. And he has made inspired choices. He has motivated like nobody is motivated before we were talking yesterday about is his Yannick Noah retreat that we all suddenly wanted to sign up to. But does he have a big case to answer here with? Those team selections not only dropping Luca que-. But not picking is you Simone who has had a good year. I think he's he was thirty four wins twenty two losses. This year is thirty in the world. He's he's reached the fine of play court events. I mean, how hard at this stage. I know it's it's not over. But it's you could say it's as good as I ever what we'll get the stat from that in a bit. But how strongly do you feel about it yet? And that's probably something. We didn't talk about much yesterday the place. He didn't even pick for the for the scored. Notably. Of course, seem on and Mofaz. Yeah. He we understand. They're all philosophical differences varying degrees with both of them gas scare I think is is struggling with an injury. I believe, but but I mean service song is struggling with a fee..

"Yeah. So day one at the Davis cut by BNP para bar final has come and gone, and it has gone completely the way of curry share an absolute landslide in their favor. After the first two rubbers of the day. First of all we've had born church defeating Jeremy shoddier, France. And then it was married Chile turn, and he also defeated Joe Wolford Songa so six sets out of six and it was noisy at times. But Matt Roberts who's over there inside the stadium thing which which was noisy. It's not noisy anymore. It's not no. It's just me. And the guy watering the court at the moment. And yes a few hours ago. This was bouncing with Croatian support. And the French set of filed their way out rather rather miserably at the end because that is an absolute thumping today that the French didn't even break serve. That's how that's how comprehensive it was. That's rather different Catherine with to to the scene that you would describing exactly a year ago because I think it was one all wasn't after day one last year. It sounds like it's it's an immense. Contrast similar. I'm sure I'm sure that we have any impact on how loud the crowd cheer tomorrow will then stay if the day three is even in play. Which is I think I'm expecting France to take a point in the doubles tomorrow. But it's very far from gimme very very far. From that say there is now a chance that this could be a three. Three of win for for Cratia, which I think I think neutrals probably prefer that it wasn't. But yeah, there's no there's no other way to describe today than than thumpings six in sets. I mean, yeah. No breaks of serve. No, no, real moments in either match were you ever really thought that that either shoddy. You also were were we're going to mount challenge serious ones. I had lots of thinking today if Yannick Noah even night, not that there's anything. I mean, it's it's obviously he's putting him for the doubles thinking in terms of decision making just chew upon. I think it was you who said the this has the feeling of a mismatch this tie at the moment. And actually until you said that last night. I was I've been looking at the lineup and thinking, oh, you know, it's on French soil, and they've got Songa, and they've got this depth. Got this great doubles team. I think it could be pretty close. I I would make Cratia favorites because of their to number one players, but you pretty adamant that point. And then when when I started to dig down into the detail of avoid that might be in and the lack of activity of Songa, and and the the decision to shoddy and ahead of Luca, Capri, and etc. Cetera. I definitely came around by the end of the podcast to to be more in your camp. Was it when you were out there when when the teams came out did it quickly become a feeling of that ilk? Because I watched what was interesting to me was watching the anthems. And I I feel that you there's nothing quite like Davis Cup anthems. And and the contrast between the two teams was so stark he'd got Cratia who weren't even singing along with their national anthem. They were they weren't. There were barely. Acknowledging it they was stone faced and then you've got the French team. You got Nikola who crying in floods of tears and the rest of them were belting out the French national anthem. And then suddenly all went flat. Didn't it yet? Did I must say first of all Lamar say is is just the most brilliant national anthem. I I learnt the words to it for a school for school trip. We went to watch France play in the six nations, and we spend all day school chips better than mine. Well, it was actually it was actually a school trip to see A Malia play with a reprimand tacked onto the end. It was very good. But I went school camping down the local field. But the story is that we were so late into the stadium. We miss the national anthem. So learning the words proved to be fairly pointless. But on this occasion, I was in the stadium and court Lemercier, and it really does have a rousing impacts on the stadium..
