"I think that's about it for tennis news in terms of what's going on on the court and in the tour as we've said Matt is in Madrid. So we're going to be bringing you the best that we can from the Davis Cup finals. We've got 7 podcasts lined up between now and the end of the event, which starts on Thursday. So we'll have a preview podcast on Wednesday with Matt, if we can get him away from his tapas, which I suspense is indulging in. I would be every ten minutes. But the Spanish route David, he's allowed to indulge in some tapas. Quite right. Indeed. And yeah, a few things on that score. Actually, if you want to get tickets to go to either Madrid or Turin to watch the Davis Cup finals. Unfortunately, you can't go to Innsbruck now because that's going to be played behind closed doors. But if you want to go to the other two and watch the knockout stages, we have a code that can give you 15% off tickets, tennis podcast all one word all upper case via the Davis Cup finals ticketing website. So we'll have a link for you in our show notes and stick that in and if you want to go and get some tickets with a bit of a discount. We have a few birthdays, Catherine. Billie Jean King today. Yes, I just sent her a happy birthday message and as I was typing just thought what is life? That is an astonishingly egregious name drop Catherine. Sorry. Sorry. Well, actually, to be clear, I sent her a picture of my dog with the tagline. Happy birthday. He wouldn't want to receive that. They almost share a birthday, don't they? Yes. Yes. Close. Well, Billie Jean King, we know you're listening or I hope you are. Happy birthday. And happy birthday to Daryl, who's one of our big KickStarter backers. Daryl shares a birthday with Billie Jean King, disease. Now there's a few days ago. I've got to tell him. So sorry, Daniel. Well, if we're doing that, happy birthday to my brother and his girlfriend Millie, you also the birthdays last week. Okay, how far are we going back with this? Well, Billie Jean canines was two and a half weeks ago, so apparently that for anyone else you want to go, oh my friend Monique, that was yesterday. Okay. Just a whole world basically happy birthday all of you. And if you've got a listener out there, if there's a listener out there with your birthday, happy birthday, right. Chris Albert Lee is an executive producer. Rogue Zeus and scouser Moussa are our mascots Catherine as finely had a record broken in the predictions because she went from Medvedev and it didn't happen. But three in a row is not bad. And my brother said, if I'd put an accumulator on that, would have paid off my mortgage. I don't understand betting, but we don't made me feel very good. We don't promote betting here on the terrorist podcast. So, yeah. That's why we don't understand any of it. A couple more things just before we go. Our mascots for the week is caper. And capers four year old English cocker spaniel who lives with his family, the blums. His older brother, Peter and his father Andy have been listening regularly since 2017 and 2018 respectively, caper is named for his love of Cape Cod, and there's a lovely picture of him there on your screen Catherine. Can you say that? I'm staring at it, David. Have them for most of this podcast. Love keeper. Beautiful. Beautiful dog. Indeed. So more information about caper in our newsletter, sign up to that. It's in the show notes, the links if you want to sign up for it. And just a bit of news, I was alluding to it last week with Matt. As you probably know now, if you've been listening to us for a while, that once a year, we crowd fund the tennis podcast to keep it going. Basically, because it's a heck of a lot of work, a heck of a lot of time put in, and a lot of expense as well. And the generosity and support that our listeners have shown us all of you really over the last 5 years since we started crowdfunding via a KickStarter has just been extraordinary to us. And frankly, we wouldn't still be here talking to you right now. We haven't had that. We just wouldn't have been able to. So we can't thank you enough for it. Now, rather than doing exactly the same again in December, we're doing things a little bit differently this time. We are launching a membership scheme called Friends of the tennis podcast, and the idea behind it is that it'll be quite similar in many ways. You're put in whatever you can afford to or whatever you think we're worth, whatever the show means to.

"Now the doubles was won by Nicola mahu and Pierre Hugo bear. They've defeated Joe Salisbury and Rajeev ram in the final, which was another turnaround of around Robin group match, Catherine. Is this think? I mean, I've seen, if you think back, I remember Federer beating Djokovic in the round Robin stages a few years ago in London. And then losing to him in the final. This feels like it is something that does happen quite often. I can tell you in the singles it has happened 19 times, including yesterday's singles final that a round Robin meeting has been replicated in the final and on 11 of those 19 occasion occasions the result has been reversed. That's very interesting. That's a good stat. Yeah, well, we didn't prepare that folks. David didn't know I had that stat. No. I didn't know David was going to ask that question. Sometimes things just work out. We did that without that. I didn't we're so pleased with us. That's editing this now again. We've ruined it by how pleased we are with ourselves. Matt just, you know, tosses this stuff out like it was nothing. Yeah. Straight faced. No smugness. But it happens quite a lot, David. I don't have the stats to the doubles, but I see no reason why that general trend would be different. What about in this particular case, why do you think that was? Well, I know. In a pretty final interview, they wanted to face ramen Salisbury. In this final because they lost to them in the group stages. It was a very narrow defeat, I think they hold a couple of match points in that group stage match. So and I loved that. I loved it. You know, they didn't like that they lost that much and they didn't like the manner of losing it and they wanted to write that wrong in the final. So that was interesting. And I would imagine that sort of feeling is applied to a lot of those matches. Where around Robin results have been overturned. It was to be honest, the whole finals day was a bit weird in terms of atmosphere and it was all both matches were little bit flat. And not that competitive feeling. The school line in the doubles made it sound competitive, I think, 6 four, 7 6, but it was a 7 and O tie break in the second set, and there was never really a moment where it felt like ram and Salisbury were. Were sort of level pegging, let alone let alone on top in that much peer review felt in control right from the word go and I don't know how much jelly be back injury played a part in that we had Louis kaya. The LTA doubles guru as people seem to call him on our coverage ahead of the match and he said that Jesus, the back injury was costing him about ten to 15 km/h on his serve, but he sort of played that down and said, but it's fine if he hits his spots, then it shouldn't affect them too much. Well, Greg was asking Tim Herman's eyes bug down to their sockets when they heard him say that. They said, my God. I mean, that's a massively decisive depletion to your arsenal. And I think there was more going on yesterday than just that. And, you know, Nicola mo you had his own back injury, so he was the man who got broken in that first. Yeah, I don't think it's fair to put it all down to J cells. We've back injury, but it's certainly didn't feel like a really competitive match. Rama soles really the chemistry was off yesterday. The vibe wasn't there. I mean, obviously, with Obama you the vibe is always there. And I'm always here for it. Honestly, the way they look at what another warms by cockles. Yeah, it's restorative, seeing seeing when they do their post match interview when one's talking always look at the other one for how they're looking at the one they still care. It's lovely. And Pierre Riga said that Maui's Benjamin button is just coming into his prime, he says he's 39, isn't he? 39. Yeah. Oh, there's hope for me yet then. Brilliant. Well, we've said they planned to play until Paris Olympics. When he will be 42 all I need is that skill transplant. I'm working. But anyway, the I did think from ball one there, I felt that Salisbury and ram knew that they had a kind of top level in them like a limit to what they were going to be able to do. And they weren't close really to win in that match. And but I also think the similarities with the Zwift Medvedev final is that they were so close, mahu and ebert, and they probably a they have that little point to prove to themselves that they want these guys. And I thought I felt that's very really wanted to get one over on Medvedev after all these losses. And when you've got that close, you probably just thinking just a couple of tweaks here and there. Whereas with the winner, where have they got to go? It's like, oh, same again. I really understand that mentally. I find it far harder, I mean, disclaimer, I am not an elite athlete. But I personally would find it far harder going into that final knowing I'd won the previous one than I'd lost the previous one narrowly. Obviously, if I'd lost the previous one, you know, one and two, I think, oh, God. But a narrow defeat in the previous match. I think I would find mentally easier. Again, though, not an elite athlete. No. No, that's certainly something that's very seems to be able to do. And you have to stomach a seriously heavy defeat in Paris, wasn't it to Medvedev and still came back and believes even after winning losing loads in a row that he that he can win the next one? And there's not everybody who feels like that, I don't think. So that was the ATP finals. Now, one of the things that we were talking about the other week at the next gen finals were all their myriad rule changes that they employ in order to try stuff out and today we have heard following actually a report in the keep the French sports newspaper that the ATP are going to employ and bring in timed bathroom breaks on the ATP tour at some point in 2022. We're not exactly sure when. And I had a chat with Simon hickson of the ATP to find out if that could be confirmed and he confirmed that it was correct. And the rule is going to be that players will be allowed to take only one bathroom break per match timed at a maximum of three minutes from the moment that the player reaches the bathroom, so I mean, in New York, for instance, if you think about the whole Stefano city pass Andy Murray match, which really brought this to a head with sebas going off for probably about ten minutes and we've seen other players go off for even longer at certain points in matches, depending on where the bathroom is, I mean, in New York, that wouldn't necessarily be an issue, because it's right court side. Now at other places, if you start in the top stop watch from the time they reach the bathroom, you could have elapsed 5 minutes, just get in there. But the other thing is that they're going to allow two minutes as well if a player wants to change the clothes. So 5 minutes from the time they reach the change in rooms. And the bathroom break must be taken at the end of a set. What do you think about that one Catherine? Yeah, I don't have as strong feelings as other people about the injustice there are faff related issues in tennis over the dress before bathroom.

"Any evidence that from this tournament that there is anything that is automatically going to happen at the Australian open, for instance. But he's definitely in the hunt there and given that sits a pass looks like he's having surgery on that on the elbow of his. Djokovic might not even be there. I suppose. The chances I guess, therefore, of zverev having his break through our are greater than they've ever been because of that. But he's still got it all to prove. What I ultimately fail. Same. Yeah, same. And he may well prove it. But it's still there to be proven. I don't feel, I don't feel all that differently than I did after you won the title in 20 2018. I suppose I feel like the competition for grand slams is the less than it was in 2018, the opportunities are more. But I feel like I've seen very play that well before over best of three sets. And yeah, I've also seen very play an awful lot worse than that over best of three sets. So in terms of his future, it's better for him to be playing like that than to be, you know, two meters behind the baseline and dumping forehands in the bottom of the net, but yeah, it's still questions for his tennis to answer. After the match, no, it was earlier today, I think I saw the tweet of Novak Djokovic directed towards Alex Ferrer, which read Alex vere have had a tough year on and off the court. I know how much tennis helps me to grow, and I'm happy that it was sashes winning field this year. He is such a great guy. I can only say words of praise for him and his team. Well done for grand season finale and big trophy Sasha. Now The Guardian journalist to many carry all commented upon reading that. As a reminder, that is very tough year off the court, includes the fact that he is currently under investigation by the ATP for domestic abuse. Which yeah, I must admit when I saw Djokovic his tweet there, I thought that was. Disappointing to be quite honest with you. That he would say something would so little apparent acknowledgment of the fact that that case is actually ongoing, and maybe it would have been better to have just held back a little bit to be quite honest at the very least. Contacted the ATP this morning, by the way, to ask for the latest on the investigation. And I was told that the investigation is ongoing. I also asked in what form the internal investigation is going to take anything that they could tell me and I was told we've contracted a third party with expertise in this area to assist in our investigative process. And further information will be provided once the investigation is complete. So we wait. We'll wait and see. What the outcome and certainly what the results are that we are given, I guess in due course, because we have no time limits given to us on that whatsoever. Yeah, and I think I've learned with the punctuation how valuable it's been from a reporting point of view that Steve Simon has been so reactive. So proactive in responding to things and giving comment in giving update to the viewers into journalists on the WTA's position because it enables reporting. It enables factual reporting the fact that there is new news. And, you know, I think personally, I believe it's very important when covering Alexander zverev frequently and there is no science for how often one should be mentioning the allegations. You know, the ratio of minutes spoken about Alex Vera to minutes spent mentioning that he is currently under investigation for domestic abuse. There is no formula for that. And I don't have the answer. But I feel very, I feel very strongly that it should be mentioned. The viewer and the tennis public should be made aware and no matter how uncomfortable that is. And updates from the ATP would make that possible would make it an awful lot easier for those trying to navigate their way through this horrible, uncomfortable minefield to report factually on the situation. Isn't it the case, though, that unless there is actually news to update on they can't update us. Well, just for example, the update that you got after contacting them this morning, that's still an update I didn't know that they'd contracted a third party to assist in the investigation. I'd like to know more about the nature of that relationship. Is it being presided over by somebody external and independent a rough time scale on it? Just the format of the investigation, there's plenty that they could. They could update us on and brief us on. Yeah, I certainly feel keeping some regular contact would be would be helpful in that regard. And look, you know, you're right. I will often accompany reference to Alexander's verve's significant achievements on the tennis court, whether it be on our Twitter account or whether it be on this podcast with a reminder of where we are with the investigation or the fact that there is an investigation ongoing because I agree. I think that it's it is part of a story around or associated with him at the moment. That is just a fact, and therefore it can't we can't pretend it isn't. There are definitely listeners that have asked that that have commented or got in touch with me and said that I think I should be doing that. And look, I just don't agree with that. And once we have a resolution or a result from these invested from this investigation, we will bring it to you. Regardless of what that result is, it will be brought to you. And yeah, that's really all there is to it. On the court, he was exceptional, I think, over the course of the tournament. And yeah, he's had one of the best. He's had the best year of his career and he's had one of the best years of anybody. So we'll see what happens for him on.

"Nicola and Matthew pavich beat Philip polish and even dod to qualify. So the top seeds through, then are going to be up against ranji ram and Joe Salisbury who beat kabal and Farah to qualifying top spot with a three love record, so unbeaten raman saucepan. I mean, that is a match to set your alarm clock for, isn't it? Make it impaired against raman Salisbury. Yeah, top two seeds here. I think they've met quite a few times this year. There was some concern over his back injury. You know, he had quite a lot of treatment on it today, but they still got through the match. And I don't think she quite been at their best this tournament. So that could be excellent. Yeah. And then the other one sees Marcel granolas and horatio as a bias who topped their group up against Nicola mahu. And Pierre ooga bear in the semifinal. So all of that coming on Saturday in Turin. Anything else Matt before we wrap it up for another night because I've got to get myself off to bed for my son's football in the morning. I don't think so, David, I think we've covered it all. We've covered it all. Have you started your packing yet? Catherine Whitaker style for the Davis Cup finals yet you're on your way on Sunday. I have not started my packing, but I probably should. Uh oh. There's suddenly a look on math phases. I have to say I'm crying, I'm not thought of that. Anyway, talking of the Davis Cup finals there is a bit of news from Innsbruck because the coronavirus has caused a lockdown in Austria and as a result of that the doors are going to be closed for that series of ties now, really really sad that they're going to have to play one of the three locations for the Davis Cup finals, there's Madrid. There is Turin and there is Innsbruck and so Britain and Serbia and several other countries are going to be playing behind closed doors, which is a great shame. And incidentally, if.

"Darkness comes over them. That's fascinating. I mean, he's obviously rude as trained quite a lot at the Rafa Nadal academy, I think, hasn't he? He really, you know, I sort of know he looks up to Nadal, so it's interesting that he is open about that and says that that is sort of an ambition of his. And I think this idea of showing who you are when you're in difficult situations, I think I read that he's won his last 11, deciding sets. Yeah. He made it clear that actually the 5 set losses he'd had, and one of them was from two sets up, I think that basically those were the catalysts for those third set victories because clearly these 5 set matches he said that those the matches that hurt you the most. They're the ones that stay with you. And he'd made a real thing of turning that around. The other thing that I found very interesting, he's up against Medvedev tomorrow, the two o'clock match in the afternoon. They've played twice. He's pushed him a couple of times close in sets, but he's lost both matches in straight sets has never included the match in Majorca on grass earlier this year, and they played at the ATP cup as well. He said, I'm going to go home tonight, and I'm going to watch videos and YouTube footage of Dominic team against Daniel Medvedev, because I know that team has beaten him a few times, and actually the record is three two for team. And he says, look, I'm not saying I am Dominic team. He's got kind of more power than I have more sort of destructive power. But he plays with heavy topspin on his forehand like I do. And he's quick around the court. So maybe I can learn a few things. And I just thought what an interesting insight into match preparation. Yeah, I didn't know players did that. Over aware of that even, you know? Yeah, I don't know. I just thought that was the sort of thing that we people like us just would like them to do because it would be funny, you know, if they, you know, we might think there's a similarity between team and rude. And we would think, oh, it makes sense. Maybe to sort of watch team, you know, but maybe you listen to us. Well, Frank Casper. I remember asking Danielle Collins at the Billie Jean King cup, whether she'd watched emirate Carnot against our cerebral talent. I mean, she basically laughed at my face as though why would I do that? I've got my own tactics and my own approach and I thought, well, yeah, fair enough. Do you think he's got any chance? Do you all right, I mean, you assume you think never love wins. I do. And actually, I could see it being similar to their previous match is actually a close set and then a less close set for Medvedev. Right. Well, I've got rude winning the whole thing, so Djokovic again spare a tell us about that matchup tomorrow, that rivalry in general. Well it's quite interesting. I mean, as vero is always keen to point out, he's played Djokovic at all the biggest events on a hard court this season. You know, he really talks about that a lot, the Australian open, the Olympics, the U.S. open and now here at the ATP finals, zero of one, the one at the Olympics, of course, best of three sets, Djokovic won their best of 5 set matches at the grand slams, certainly the U.S. open one was very close. It was a 5 setter. My feeling in that rivalry is that for zverev to beat Djokovic, something has to go a bit wrong for Djokovic. I mean, I think we saw that at the Olympics when his game just deserted him halfway through the match. We've seen it one other time. I think at ATP finals, when in 2018, no doubt zverev played a very, very good final that day and was sort of you know he almost seemed like a bigger Djokovic at times. You know, with a bigger serve, a bigger backend and I suppose he did sort of overwhelm him a little bit and make jakovich uncomfortable. But it was also a very flat performance from Djokovic that day. And I just think if Djokovic is fully engaged in the match as I expect him to be, I just think he wins. You know, he's, I think he's, yes, okay, maybe he doesn't quite have the firepower that's very has gotten very of can perhaps make him uncomfortable with that. But we've spoken about it. He's got little tools in his game that now that he can use to unsettles drop shots, bringing him forward, angles, coming into the net a little bit. I think we'll probably see some of that from Djokovic if he's able to get the time on the ball. I'll definitely be watching, I'll definitely be watching how many times he comes to the net, given how quick the conditions are, in Turin and how many times Djokovic came to the net in Paris against Medvedev. Yeah, completely. Yeah. And I think there's a there's perhaps been a feeling that Djokovic doesn't like quick courts, maybe in his career, and personally, I think that's probably come about from the Federer Djokovic rivalry. I think whenever they've played on a quick, those conditions have tended to suit federal a bit more in that matchup. But actually, the way Greg was executed the other day and that a quick court really becomes a test of skill as much as anything rather than a battle of attrition. And obviously, Djokovic can win those. But he can also win tests of skill, and I think that will come out on top tomorrow. Yeah. Okay. Well, we'll look forward to seeing that. What's the head to head, by the way, Djokovic? So it's 7 three overall to Djokovic. It's very winds, obviously the Olympics. The 2018 ATP finals, as I talked about, and then there was one, I think in the Rome final of 2017, which was various first masters 1000 event win, I think. Yeah. Yeah. Okay. Well, be fascinating. Right then, we'll look at that. Look forward to that rather and bring you up to date with what goes on in our show on Monday when we're hoping to have Catherine Whitaker back with us here on.

"In the evening of Friday with the final group stage match about to get underway between Novak Djokovic and Cameron nori a late alternate replacement for the injured player in that particular group, which was Stephanie sits a pass. And frankly, nothing can happen of note in it, that's because Djokovic has already qualified Cameron nori has already well lost his out. So basically, it's a dead rubber for the second night in a row, although last night's dead rubber was pretty good. So we'll get onto that in a little while. And yeah, basically the locals in Turin are putting, I guess you might say that the popular player in Yannick sinner and the big name in Novak Djokovic in prime time regardless of whether the match is mean anything. I think that pretty much sums it up. So Catherine's chatting away at the moment ahead of the Djokovic nori match and here we are in the tennis podcast to bring you up to date with it all. But before we do that, we'll bring you up to date with the latest involving punctual. As you know from, I guess, a lot of the media coverage you will have been following and certainly from our podcast over the last week, she still hasn't been heard from or spoken to or seen it certainly not from a verifiable source. We have seen some screenshots from of her within a tweet, but once again from somebody from the China state media so frankly, I don't think many people are taking that too seriously. But what they are taking seriously Matt is the ongoing story in itself and how distressing and worrying it is. And more and more players seem to be speaking out and Steve Simon, the WTA CEO is taking every chance he can to make his and the WTA's position about her and about their business in China, very, very clear. Yeah, absolutely. It's been quite tough, I think, to actually enjoy the tennis that's going on at the moment with this cloud hanging over the sport, although I say that, and it's a much bigger issue than a tennis issue. So it's an international incident now, quite frankly with the UN Amnesty International law demanding evidence of her whereabouts and safety yeah, I mean, I would say, again, how impressed I've been, we are with Steve Simon's leadership on this issue. His courage to take on China and his integrity to do the right thing. I think, you know, he sort of doubled down on all that on his latest appearance, public appearance, which was on CNN. Last night where he said, we're at a crossroads for our business with China, too many times in our world, we let business politics and money dictate what's right and wrong. And you know, I just think it's an incredible message that he's sending with this approach and this sort of hard line approach. Who knows? It may end up changing the way sporting governing bodies end up dealing with China. I don't know. Obviously, the other side to all this, as you said, is many, many more players speaking out about it. The vast majority of WTA players lots of ATP players as well. Been impressed by how quickly they've all mobile eyes and got behind it as well. You just won the sort of how much good it will do. It's obviously a very frightening and scary situation, but you've got to try everything you can to put as much pressure on, I think, and the tennis community is really doing that. That's certainly my instinct as well. I didn't know today that the IOC have taken a very different approach and they actually they said quite diplomacy is the way forward and the best way to achieve results which personally I don't buy. I think that sir Steve Simon and tennis is doing the right thing and I regard it as refreshing and I'm pleased that they're not just karate, frankly, and letting business and money get in the way of what they believe is right and wrong. They're being very clear about that. I did notice in an interview that the BBC did with Steve Simon today. They kind of put that to him in the interview and said are you at all worried that taking such a hard line approach might not yield the results you want? And quieter, more gentle negotiations and diplomatic efforts might be a better way. And Steve Simon was not having it. He his view is that this is he has no reservations about the way the way he's handled it so far and the way he will continue to handle it. It's just a little bit difficult and it's impossible really, but I have a hard time working out where it goes next and at what point if everybody's had their sign, everybody's spoken up and today, several of the big name players Andy Murray, lots of others and organizations as well, keep saying it, you know, what happens in a few days time, if everybody's had to say and we still don't know anything, or we still not confident about her whereabouts. The guy I don't know. But I'm just hoping for the best, really, which is kind of a horrible position, horrible powerless position to be in. But that's where we are. Yeah, I think certainly punctuates safety is of Paramount importance and that is the primary issue at the moment which everyone is getting behind. But I share your concerns in terms of where does this go if, you know, if so many people have already spoken out and there's been no answers. What's going to happen in a few days time a week's time? That's why I think it's important that we continue to talk about it, continue to put the pressure on, and I think the larger question of Tennessee's relationship with China I mean, it seems pretty untenable at this point, doesn't it?.

"He's been exonerated by the courts studies. Not what those injunctions pertain to the other thing That needs checking as he states that he's been wanting atp To initiate an independent investigation. Do think it's important to state that this isn't an independent investigation. It is an internal investigation. I don't know what that means. I didn't know what it looks like. This is new. It's well documented that the atp of never done anything like this before we're yet to hear details about it but there is a reason why generally speaking society institutions. Don't investigate themselves. Independent police complaints commission for example. Independent is very crucial. Part of that. So i just think that's an important fact to put out there. There's obviously been some been some followup to all of this. He's been asked about impressed conferences Sarah of i think reiterating in even stronger terms that he is pleased that this investigation is taking place. Yeah and and just to say. I think you know we've been calling for an investigation. Lots of people have been calling for an investigation. The fact there is one is a step in the right direction. You have to question why it's taken so long And i think it's a k- that way asking for more transparency about what the what the investigation is going to include. Who's doing it. What are they looking for. I think it's right. That where questioning the nature of this investigation As a set. It's good that it's being dumb. Because i think one thing it will do is allow or make meteo associations who were nervous to report on the allegations report that an and official atp investigation has been launched. I think it will spread the word that bit more. So that's that is an important point. I think but it so. Yeah i would like more details about what this investigation is going to actually include Terms various press conference this week. He was asked by a molly. Mckelway of the telegraph. What he thought about the upcoming investigation into the allegations And he said he was pleased. He said bloody finally. I've been asking the myself months now. It's hard for me as you guys know to clear my name and any with something like this can completely. I've been in court in germany. Which i won the case against the author and the publications which the authors ignoring right now which. I think. We'll have a lot of consequences for him. I know the media is turning and twisting it as if it was a bad thing for me actually quite happy about it because hopefully this subject will be done because other than that is not much more. I can do to clear my name. He was asked by simon's of inside tennis. Who said this is a real tough situation but in sports. There's a lot of forgiveness. People like to see things change. Do you ever think it would be good for you and for your fans and for the sport open up directly. Tell everyone this was the nature of that relationship. This is what happened here and just be done with it. That master an open way. Too expensive said to be honest. It's very difficult in my situation because a of the time. The man is not really believed. I've proven innocent and a lot of different ways. And i think now with this investigation which is finally happening. I hope that this can be done in dusted from third individual party and they we can move on with everything else to be very honest. Andy murray said it very well in san diego. When tennis players and stars of the game they played tennis. They wind tennis matches. They win big tournaments. Want to be talking about that. To be honest. I've had one of the most incredible seasons young guys had improbably the last ten years when in the olympics to most of the series and four tournaments and that is kind of forgotten a little bit so once the situation is over once the situation is done we can go back to how it walls and i think that's just about older is to say on the matter fa- now make make of that. Whatever you like everybody will have Have their response to that. David got two puppies playing on his lap quite like love gene but never quite Sanguine yes very different energy very different energies to a quiet sort of reality about him did so onto onto not quite so serious matters But i suppose serious in their very own special way andy murray has hit the headlines With a video posted last night in indian wells often return to his hotel room stating that following a series of events involving some very smelly shaves. His words not mine. In order to distinct issues he left them underneath his car for the night in indian wells. This is again a everyone's going to have their own. Opinions left them underneath his car than i had had them in his car. And it stunk out the car. He doesn't have a balcony as in his hotel room so he thought the only way that he could distinct his shoes was to leave them under his car for the night neglected the fact that he touches his wedding ring to his shoes. While he's playing the shoes got stolen by quite the jokester. Whoever whoever it is wow That thief now has andy murray's disgusting tennis shoes and his wedding ring. He is Got himself in quite a bit of trouble. He's put out an appeal for help My main takeaway from the whole affair was how on earth is in the situation where he's in indian wells with one pair of tennis shoes. He describes this video having to get to the to a pro shop to buy new shoes. Madness madness thirty. One minutes ago. He posted not date on instagram. To all the people asking. I didn't only bring one pair of tennis shoes with me. I traveled with repairs to california. I left two pairs underneath the car and the third pair is worn out from san diego matches and practice. Well i would still say. It's just nowhere near enough. I tacked for this trip. I brought like extra pairs of underpants. You always over cater and there was no need to do that. It's just what you do. What absolutely and you know you success your profession as nothing to do with my. Yes but perky role. It's it's an insane situation to be in and if you do have to. Tps's definitely don't need them both under the call. I'm still waiting to save. This is a prank. The more it goes on on the bbc news in date faces physician before when he announced that ross hutchins was going to be new coach. That got reported on sky. Sports news on on the ticket was that on april fools day yes Believe not today. He was smirking Bit three the video was any. But i think maybe that's not his. His humor isn't it and just sort of sheepish. Nece over his own silliness..

You may remember. She did so well. At wimbledon got to the fourth round and they met in the final offer. wgn in chicago. One hundred and twenty five point final six four in the deciding set tasks and one at the young day in eighteen years of age who we got really excited about a year ago. We when she She jennifer jennifer brady in the first round at running garrels just absolutely stunning power. This this young woman's got she's had some big wins since then as well but struggled a little bit of light first time she went back to matches in charleston in april but seventy seven in the world great to see radikal after the the moment that she went through in the fourth round. When she she had to to retire from her match and that she managed to beat the top seed. Bankin around one. She's into the top one hundred fifty. And that's really something catherine actually to to to come to this level of event. Now she's a decent level but the right sort of level think for now and get a lotta winds really impressive. Yep absolutely especially as the the first event. She played off to wimbledon. She had a quite chastening loss in the spotlight We we talked about it. Didn't it didn't mean in. San jose being sheduled on the main court first night session And yet as you would expect. She paid high ranked player and she lost. She suffered quite a heavy loss to be thrown back into that spotlight delays after what happened at wimbledon nuts tough and then the event. She played the week before the this result she. She retired from much with heat exhaustion. I think that was somewhere north. America as well So you know that's all completely legitimate and no one of these things in isolation is is a worry or anything but you just wanted off too often. Wimbledon just wanted to to have a good experience and get get back on track and start feeling positive about things and This couldn't be better timed and she be really proper players to get to that final. And i say particularly impressed at how she she turned around the final and took it to with a set because it was a very one sided. I set by by all accounts unable to watch it. But i was trying to follow it online and just nothing but get things from radical and he lost. We cannot does a nice thing to be able to say yeah. She's got to be entering the qualifying now for the us open which is of scenes in in uk is going to be live on prime video. Which catherine will be presenting when the major stotz a week from now But yeah it's going to be really interesting to watch the qualify round crowds qualifying. No but the crowds are going to be in in the house from monday onwards from next monday when the mangerial starts is what we understand so. Let's hope that continues to be waiting. Fees steve johnson. They sure are and a week ago. Seems to believe a week ago. We were talking about roger federer having pulling having to pull the plug on his season and we suspect that may be it for his professional playing career and ref on the dow we knew heads had pulled out of both canada and also cincinnati with the foot problem. It had we thought he was. There was no chance he beatified the us. I've been well in fact he's not gonna play again this year. He's pulled the plug on on his season and It it's another moment which just hits you really hard to say these guys matt's unable to play and The dow seems absolutely determined to come back. And and basically saying you. I will be back. And i will be at my top level again but crikey it's It's another moment. isn't it where it does. Just stop you. You think these guys aren't gonna be around forever. yeah totally. it's quite interesting. If you just watched the two videos fed up his video and the dow put out his video it was quite a quite a good insight into their personality. Actually because federal is was the kind of slightly more upbeat in his body language and yet delivering this really crushing announcement that you know exactly as you said this could be the end of his playing career and whereas nadal was much more downbeat in tone but the message was more positive in the short term. It's it's a huge blow that he's out of the us open and out for the season but it was. It was different from federal and that he said you know. I'm positive that i can recover from this. And i can fight for the most important titles again and i think he he really understands this. They injury i think because it's one he's had since two thousand and five you know it's it's a problem that he's dealt with through his career and i think in two thousand and five doctors really thought that could be the end of his playing career before it really started and he found a solution to it i think he thinks he will find a solution again. But yeah gosh for the short term the amount of players who are out and you know federal team. The doll will missing from the us open. Just you know if i was putting together a little group of men's tennis as i've enjoyed watching the most over the last ten years or so those three would certainly be in it. It's a real big blow for the tall And yet the fact is coming at once is quite a lot to have to deal with anything. Any major champions other than jackovitch in.

"Sits pass trundles of cool with this bag normal. Everybody sort of settles in for he averages eight minutes. These breaks settles in for eight-minute eight-minute boss from break all of his imagining. What he's what he's doing in the lease peeling off his sweaty underpants anyway very then complains to the umpire of postals. Father and coach if stephanopoulos Sitting in the players books texting complained to the empire that sits a pass And probably is in the lou nor in fact peeling off his sweaty underpants but texting his dad for fif- tips for helpful tips and advice. I know stephanie sits pass was doing that but i definitely know he could be because it is a completely unpoliced situation and most players all taking both from breaks to change kit at the moment cetinje along matches and there is absolutely no policing if if fines being in that kit so he knows but he. He raises a valid point. I mean he sort of he ticket quite far and said everybody knows that sits pastas this. He did it in paris. he's doing it here. Everyone knows then. My other favorite thing was at the end of the second set. Then apostolos started making like decoy phone calls to state state on the cool that change of ends say apostles troy to sort of make out that as just a really important business dealings require him to be on his phone Yeah very very always here for sort of new new avenues and this this feels like one of those and i think once had raised the point with the empire alley. Neely who i think was was. The referee sort of quite nervously. Went backstage perhaps even looking for stephanos in the toilet dole As though he was trying to be seen to be doing something about this accusation. I mean he seemed to go to the wrong door because then sits sort walked out another one. It was like. I said a comedy sketch but yes i mean. I don't think we can go into the accusation because it's just way we can no or not but the point is that should be police shouldn't it. I mean they should have that bag check that they have their phone in it or there should be someone making sure. They didn't have a phone on them when they're going into a private space. I mean and the fact that there is no one doing that just seems like so tennis back something. No one is thought about that is actually incredibly obvious. Yeah and i mean it was. It was quite a week. Four slightly post modern agro because there was there was i mean under a rube love managed to create agro with gamma fees. Which which really takes take some doing. I think and he accused him. If always puking during matches he always does gammel face when to have puuikena been at the back of the call android about it and says he's always doing this. I do watch a religious. You really could do it. Just i mean bit number one. He's definitely not always doing that number. Two if he is we'll pull gail. Let's help him not get stressed. The him goes from pugh can in the been to basically having to explain himself. Yeah opponent and he's such a great blake. He managed to completely diffuse a very an aggie under. We're blessed in about four seconds. It was rib left. Couldn't be more fourteen year old here. He's accused you of being a serial fake puka run at the end of it after we got it all out of his system. There was in that sudden moment of realization. And then he did the bump this he went okay and did the equipment trudging up to his room that it was charging back to the baseline and we had Dino medvedev assaulting a camera arguably the camera salted in. I the way kind of discussion. Yeah that was a very interesting talking point because whilst very of his won the tournament in his one at kind of apart from this the best match. He's one everything else in the tournament easily. It was medvedev. It was winning everything incredibly easy that was really capturing all the attention i would say because he's gone straight from toronto worries beaten is known about come for the loss of a handful of games and then he's comes straight hair and he's beaten another low players he's just he's just dismissing them as though the the joke opponents and then he faces rib level always beats wins. The first set six two and it's just happening again And it looks doesn't look any way that is going to win this match until denno medvedev runs into a camera the back of the court which must when it happened at sydney made me think crikey. I was kind of unaware that that person was back there. I'm not really sure why they're on the corner. The way that configured it it is a bit in the way. I also think well yes those dimensions you just go to work with them. It's not maybe it's not ideal for your game star. But that's just the way it is. That's basically i think about it. But i mean then then you just completely lost his mind and it did. Make me think that in all this conversation about donna medvedev over the last few years. We've seen several occasions where he just bates himself ready and i. I don't take anything away from regrets. Because he he hung in there and he got over his own demons to manage to win the match and come back so fairplay to him for that but think about it. Medved avenue australian open final this year. When it's all set up for him to really push jockey mitch which was brilliant not taken any way th away from him but medvedev did not show up mentally in that match really. And then we had the wimbledon where he's where he's two-sets-to-one up against her catch and he just got. He just came out with the wrong attitude. The next diane again. Her catchers really good. The best players go with you. They they wear your storm they take it on and they stay with you until they get the better of you and then here we are again. Things could not have been going better now. I admit it says shock to the system and it must have worried him. But you cannot allow that to happen. If you're going to be winning these titles. I i don't think and that's that puts a big question mark in my mind the. Us open his level. Is there his level of tennis is right there to be beaten any of these guys if he plays his best tennis. But i don't know can you trust him He can snap very quickly. Medvedev go real temper. And actually i thought that was really not on kicking the camera lens. That is that is an expensive of equipment. And i think because we like medvedev and generally people evade favorable towards medvedev at the moment he kinda got away with it a little bit but actually i think that was really bad from him and i think he deserves some criticism for that. He needs to be able to control himself better..

"She was extremely impressive. That week. really confident Torri athletic extremely athletic game ferber variety. You know it's not. It's not the most elegant game but she's real competitor in She speaks radio. Well you know a lot about a really real solidity to her game. I think can she had had she she. She's had result you know she's done affair that a winning but it loaded the time. It's two fifty level and on clay. You know when the sort of events that don't full passive this sort of tool story so much sean building up to anything. Oh in a bit of a sort of casper ridge three three titles after wimbledon on clay vibe. I mean she didn't win three titles on playoff to wimbledon. but she's she's done her winning completely out to the spotlight and this is the first time really fuji. Respect to lexington this. She's done anything in the spotlight and it's one of those we look at a game. We'll why you'll really really good. And i'm i'm really pleased that she backed up that wind. She had over a soccer last week. I'm really pleased. That wasn't able to be dismissed as a flash in the pan or a bad dave Soccer oversee no misaki. Still building up to form wasn't peak assault But you know she. She was thoroughly outclassed in the final social. Hugh could have stopped party But that shouldn't detract from a real breakthrough week. Vigil teichman who i think has top thirty potential. This fine on the parents get so back in the top fifty. I believe i think she's around about forty five now and she. She started the season strongly. I remember her reaching the semifinal in dubai and she was getting a bit of form going again and then she got injured in palermo. I think on the client had to miss realm garrels. Which just as you've described. She's got a game which yes. She's had some results on. How cool but actually you sort of think. Well clay is is where that game should be thriving. I think she's got a spanish coach and she grew up in spain. There's a t- loves klay. She yeah she's got that lefty topspin forehand that you just think clay immediately and says she missed out on garrison that was a real blow for and this was. This was the first thing she's been able to kind of do since then and yeah. She's cerebral tennis. Blair i think she picked the right shot at the right time. She don't overpower you. But she might out think you outmaneuver view and yeah. It was a really great run back in the top fifty. Which absolutely i think is where she belongs and let's hope she can she can push up into the kind of seedings slams. I suppose be a good target if if you got any idea why she go to wildcard into cincinnati. I mean obviously. She's entirely justified. It and i'm chuffed to bits for that she did. But that's a that's quite a wild wild code you mean. Usually they go to american players all former champions that dropped out of the the rank. The you know the top of the top of the pope's no i don't but the push the podcast where we ask questions of the cuff that he doesn't something something to try and find out anyway if he still says next week But as you said it sort of makes sense that she would get one because she was making strides had a setback on. This could've shopping back up again. But let's suppose very nice of the western and southern nathan. I would say to help knockout soccer from marriage collar. Welcome beat tim henman at queen's anyway all those years ago so anyway. It was a crack in week actually the women's singles. I thought i've already some great matches threat and doubles as well. Because great story there from from an australian point of view because sam sto sir and juncture reunited for the first time since february won the doubles title that third titled together i since the two thousand nineteen australian open beat montreal champions gabriela dubrovsky and louis stephanie in the final Seven five six three stefan. I just love watching her play doubles. But that's impressive from spicer is there and and i'm pleased because you know she's she's had a lot of losses in the last few years sunni in singles and i love the fact that she still just loves the game she just wants to play. Yeah me too. I remember that that twenty nine hundred australian open win that they had was really emotional. One that's one of the government's the that sticks in my mind most about the twenty thousand australian open actually think it was the encore speeches. They did injunctions way. Saying obviously it was in in melbourne. Extremely emotional for for some stories are who famously is hard very disappointing results in singles her home slam for her to be lifting a trophy a slam was just really glorious. I think can cheered on by the whole of the luxury He will think very highly of as a young sri explained that it was some story that persuaded her not to retire from tennis. She was right on the brink of retirement and some studies have persuaded her her not saving. It was just a really unexpectedly. Emotional moment say i didn't. i'm tightly. Extrapolating that story the for my own purposes. But i'd love to think that juncture had returned the favor persuaded some stays it to stay out there bit longer for for moments like they had yesterday Maybe that didn't happen tool but anyway it's a lovely was first title as a mother i believe and some more wholesome sanctuary scott. Yes please. she said we miss each other so much. Because the last two years we cannot play together the first tournament we play together. We won the big trophy not so special. The first day we met each other and sam told me with back. I'm so happy. Because i can play with my best friend every day. Lovely great oh is that's great great story. Well it'll be. It'll be really interesting. doubles tournament. I think the us open this time round. Both men's and women's events method this. Just there's a lot of competition. You've you've got the clear standout men's gio in mechtild in poverty pathological but i know this much sandwich quality in some depth and those drawers now so that'll be very interesting tournament at the end of the year. The men's singles was one by alexander. Zverev who beat andrei rupe left six two six three in just fifty eight minutes and frankly could have been even quicker than that because he was six to five to up and he got his serve broken one little wobble there when he hit a couple of double-faults other than that i mean he was. He is playing probably the best tennis of his career. Thought at the moment. I mean that's olympic gold medal didn't play toronto. Followed it up. And he was just dismissing people. I mean he he swiped Cuss peru decide for the law suggest. Full games the the really big match from his perspective as the one against stephanus sits pass which Which was the semi final and which was all over the place on say because It's very ferry comes to be in charge. Then he started to complain. If some simple healthy went off court and he was he was unwell off the court and then sits bass was walk. Full one up with with a couple of breaks serve in the third set and then didn't win. I mean that was I don't know is not a choke. From switzerland's listen to david's talking about the match like he stayed up to two. Am watching like What's your tweets david. Wake up to. How many messages from us off. We're hardcore david. Hold decided to not read your conversation until i'd watched on catch right right. We'll just just rowing back in time. A bit shoes on your question. I would say choke is a bit harsh. But he certainly blew it to an extent he. He tightened up when serving for the match. Sit surpass i would say. He played bad game from that point on. I feel like is very very one it ready but but yes sit surpass disposed of an opportunity likely but rowing back in time a little bit very of one. The first sets then sits pass goes off court for a bathroom break as he wants to do of late. And now look. They've been playing in sweltering looking conditions in cincinnati and in canada the the previous week as well so lower players have been going to change with the bags into to change their kit Say zurve night..

You know it's it was really as a surprising tournament in in so many ways. But i think everybody thought the women's tournament would be surprising. I think that was sort of the. That's the way it's been for a while now and women's gamy expect the unexpected. But the men's game i think that was that was quite a shock to see novak in his form after destroying nishikori in the quarters with two in love. I think it was To end up with no metal. In anything i mean nobody would have guessed that so that that to me was the dominant theme will be talking about that. You know maybe for a long time to come. And i think it was interesting to to see again on the men's and women's singles to very high quality players and blended bench and alexandra's verify winning and yet neither one is ever wanna grand slam singles title. I'm still gonna touch on novak in casey. You being calling some of the meeks and bronze-medal for australia which is hugely important and a wonderful achievement. And when you talk about those emotions. The emotion from from the russian team official russian team. If you like winning and from pebble yankee rube levin you see what rube have failed out of winning a medal like that. I i'm i think he's just the most incredible experience and i always look at the end of a games and you see those reactions and you see i have this line of. What would you rather we to prevent in timbuktu. Or benign as olympic medalist. And it just shows what a middle does. it's completely different pressure. And i love those peaches in.

Sort of the reasons for why ended up being such a dramatic match were that similar tall I also think that Medvedev's comeback last year was completely unexpected I think again somebody like. Nidal or not somebody like against Nidal, if love down in your first Grand Slam final. Very few people are predicting away back I think even at sets breakdown today. People will. I think most people watching. Were waiting dominate team to wake up and. Waiting for something that felt like, surely, it has to happen surely at some stage today even if it's only. A small research and see and I am a break back pushing the set to a tiebreak. Winning a set. People were waiting to see the real. Dominic team. It felt. It felt like only a matter of time whether he could get it together. In time. Before it was either. But for me, that was quite crucial difference in how this one felt. Lost felt I will remember this match I think in the long run for the final set and for the final set tiebreak but. You can't have that without the other stuff that comes before just two guys. So, let's talk about that talk about the start of the match. And how we it was. It was weird. It was I mean festival Amazon deserve. Totally, different men to the guy who came out against public arena buster looked. Just, totally paralyzed with nerves and unable to play his normal game. He looked free now there for those first two sets, he looked languid he has. He has a languid power. Unlike, anybody else I think when you he said of generates speed of shot whether it's the serve of one hundred and seventy seven miles now or four hundred. That's kind of hit the back fence without you realizing he's actually hit it that hard. I don't think anybody else gives me that. kind of feeling out on the circuit of the moment you can. I can feel the power of everybody else is almost a slight of hand the way he does it, but he was timing the ball way way better and also the intent was there and he was coming into the net I mean the statistics on his net approaches. I think after a sense set in half to gone to the net twenty times. And with some success, he looks uncomfortable at the net, but he was just playing. The odd. So masters using his six foot six inches his wingspan. Great. Get into the net. And Dominic team was absolutely awful.
