"Dot com. The P I double has basically said, Well, what we're going to do We we heard what Governor Wolf had to say about this, but what we're going to do is kick it two weeks more down the road, that's essentially what they said. Buying dive. It's the new American way buying time course. What we what are we buying time for? Let's go with Governor. Wolves recommendation of January 1st What's going to be different. What's gonna be different. Here. It's safer. It's not buying time is silly. All right, let's do this. Ah, Andy and Butler. Hi, Andy. I cannot. Hello. Are you there any I'm now Can you hear me? I got you now. All right. Good. Good. Good. You know, Bertha, you know you're asked questions about well, you know, one size fits all roles. Uh, no. You know, no exception. Policies and things like that. And you got to remember assumes the words that you know it's for the benefit of the Children are monitored. You can't ask any more questions You can ask about. You know, why can't we play tennis because they're socially distant because It's really good to the Children, okay? And you know, you say you don't understand why some of these policies come out, you know, and I realized I'm a conspiracy theorist, but it But if you consider the idea that the intent is to make this virus as painful as possible, Well, then it becomes easy to understand why all these policies come out. So And then Lastly, people have been kind of pushed into giving up freedom for the sense of security, Okay? We can't have large weddings because there's too many people spread of the virus. So you've given up the freedom to have a wedding with large reception party. You've given up the freedom to while play sports. Now you're in high school. We've given up a lot of freedom for the sense of security. Man. Personally for my shelves. I'm not sure that's the wisest course of action to take because where does it end? People say Well, after all, the Kobe is over. We can go back to the way things were but well way. I'm not so sure. So, you know, uh, I think the the rationale behind some of the actions that are taken the thought is clear. Kind of people think it's a little bit more on the ferry. On one level. It's a little bit of a grab for power on another level. It's a little bit of Ah Let's make this as bad as it can be. Ah, and why? Because in the end, it's all political. My comment. I appreciate it. Um Ah. I I get being again. I can appreciate where people come from with all these conspiracies, but I would ask people focus a little bit. And, you know, I think there are some real concerns about like he said. Just giving up. You know your freedoms and your things of this such I mean, I get all that, but You know, I also know that You know the whole thing about? Well, it's political that that thing that has never, I would say the response to it has been political and the coverage of it probably has been aimed at you know politics, but You know the virus is real. The thing is, we know how to mitigate it. We also know who gets affected by it. Which is why some of this stuff is really hard to T Take And you know again, you know the last time I was honor I was reading and you know, I read from an article in a journal about depression and anxiety among Athletes. Who you know, among high school athletes and about the fact that they're not going to get, you know, not going to be able to play. And you know a significant spike in that. And that you know, in that age group and then adolescence that leads the suicides. So I mean, there's a balancing act to all of this stuff. I just wish that sometimes people would get out of their own little bubble. Get out of what their you know their own thoughts about all of this stuff and really look at the big picture because I think if they did, we'd have better conversations about Ross and Braddock. I Ross. Nathan. All conversations I have with you on We know how to mitigate and we're pretty well can agree. We almost know how to mitigate it. But I think we are still learning how of the people that we know it affects, How it no side effects with that group and how maybe the wider circle of Learning who it may affect. Well, We didn't think that you see what I'm saying. So can almost agree on how I disagree with you. Sail point if we could get war, get right in there How we know how to mitigate it. Category. Um then maybe the other part won't be so parts when we're still learning how it affects how we think we know how the next ones that we know how to sex. But I called because of your zero tolerance policy was school classrooms in the weapons and, you know they don't regulate out if you're running so late, you need to eat. Annoy your school. There's no need you have right now. Are you in one of our academic after hours situations and you Have a little pocket knife like a knife that you can also ah, in your pocket, according to the National Park Service, go up into the state, those arch And you know it, and I got someone to agree on that years ago.

Olympics Re-Lived: 2008 Beijing
"Beijing Olympics of the first Olympics I watched extensively I vividly remember be home doing what she did in. Athens. But for sort of wall-to-wall coverage, it was Beijing for me and I just remember the venues being really cool. The bird's nest, the aquatic center looking futuristic and yeah I just lapped it up. Do. You remember the dramas at the opening ceremony. That's kind of a rule about a conic moments matt. I think that is the conic moment isn't it from Beijing? Yeah well, I would say you same bolt is the I call. Of this the sport yes I'm going. Non You talked about venues and several. Yes opening ceremony iconic moment. Yeah. They also remember all the re. There were lots of theories about the pollution in Beijing and that being there's always some sort of controversy drama in the lead-up. Olympic. Some sort of reason that's being peddled in the media may be completely legit often is about why the Olympics is going to be a massive massive failure. In Rio none of us were ready. We didn't get that with London twenty twelve here. I'm sure in other countries they did everybody was sort of united in positively about the Olympics but in Beijing was the pollution because the the factory I mean everywhere in China in factories in urban areas in China and they were well first they relocated. I know from personal experience, they relocated a lot of the most polluting factories from Beijing to other parts of the country in particular to Ching de. meaning that on my visits to Chengdu roundabout that time it felt like my throat was burning every time I stepped outside because the pollution in the smoke was so bad. In fact, the final of the champions tour event. that. I attended in D. had to be halted because nobody could see the ball. But In Beijing I mean the police was was far less bad than fit but they hid seeded the clouds in order to make it rain in the lead up to the Olympics to clear the air they were controlling the weather. Can come here and do that. Yeah. No, I remember thinking what if it's that easy to make it not reign. Why we faffing around with you know? All the time.

No US Open for Nadal; Olympics Re-Lived: 2004 Athens
"Fellow folks, and welcome. Once again to the tennis podcast and the latest edition of Olympics relived, we've already lived through the Olympics nine, hundred, Eighty, eight, three to the two thousand in Sydney, and we now arrive at two thousand four Athens Olympics return to it, spurs place one, hundred, four years earlier just before we get onto reliving. Olympic things a little bit of news to one since our last weekly tennis actual tennis based podcast couple of days ago. The knees we've had is the entry list is out for the US Open. And Rafael. Nadal is not on it. He has made an announcement that he will not be playing the USA Open. It is for health risk based reasons, which I think we'll. We'll respect that obviously disappointing for the tournament that that won't be their first. Grand, Slam with neither federal known adult, since Nineteen Ninety nine on the women's side nine. If the world's top turn on the entry list, it's only a number one ashburn on it. Obviously, entry list does not mean list of players that are actually definitely going to play. But it's nonetheless, you know this early stage, a bit of beast for the US Open, and the other bit of News we've had is that. As entirely expected at the Madrid Masters and premium mandatory tournament has been canceled. I. Mean the writing on the wall. That as we discussed on Monday, but it has been formally cancelled. We do understand there's a chance that Kitsch Buell, which is tournament that must get mentioned on every tennis podcast apparently. Might. Now, move. Back a week to take up that place in the calendar where Madrid. We're going to be of I said that quickly enough so that we can move onto Olympic stuff. Is Seen as possible. I mean there are a lot of good players. All over those interests, and as you say, who knows how many of them will end up playing but him and we we knew that the likelihood was the Dow wasn't gonNA play. There was maybe a little bit of doubt about that. When Madrid was canceled perhaps Nadal might have changed his mind, but you said it's at the time you felt that if it was a view on the virus itself and not wanting to travel and it's not going to change and sure enough he made it clear that it was because of his concerns over the virus, he just feels the world isn't ready for that and he's He's not comfortable to travel. I did sort of slightly Riley. Smile. When I saw the pressure relation, the US not even including the dowels name in the release, not even acknowledging that they're defending their reigning champion was not actually going to be there because of the decision he taken and yet they did mention that Roger Federer wasn't going to be there because of his injury I thought that was poor. I think just acknowledging the champion would have been a classier thing to have done, and actually I noticed in Chris. Clarity's piece overnight in the new. York Times that he spoke to the tournament Director Stacey Allaster who? took a completely different tack and pay tribute to refer and said, she looked forward to returning and I think that that is certainly the right way to of played that. But yeah. We've also seen one or two notes overnight of the protocols that the USDA plan to. Employ for covid nineteen testing, and if somebody tests positive in a team or an or apply themselves, the play will just be removed from the tournament and we'll have to isolate and. The words of James Blake really came back to me are upon reading those rules of just what it might take even for the tournaments if it had a lot of. People testing positive in having to be removed from the drawer. How many Coulda draw take you know this? This something I hadn't really considered before and if you're staying independent accommodation, so electing not to stay in the. Official bubble hotels. Then you have to pay for and be responsible for private security to monitor your bubble adherents. which is intense but space slightly reassuring. But goodness me, it's. Any ad, the question remains unanswered of of what the threshold is for that tournament. What's what stage does D stop treating individual cases and start saying as a? Hot Sports that needs to be needs to be shut down and his depressing is that. Prospect. is they they need to have a plan for that scenario?
Fresh update on "tennis" discussed on Larry O'Connor
"Comes to talk. My name is Terry O'Connor. This is Valerio program, and I Update. You just heard the details there from really, But it's worth repeating Dr Travis Jail Recovery County health officer and elected unaccountable bureaucrats who shuts down and parochial schools in Montgomery County arbitrarily. Was rebuked by the governor of the state who changed his executive orders specifically to accommodate private and parochial schools. Due to this arbitrary, draconian measure of it, Dr Gale's put forth in Montgomery County. Who defied the governor on that and ignored his His proclamation, his executive order today. Is now reversed. Course. Ah, just reading now from Bethesda magazine, Travis Scales on Friday rescinded his latest health order keeping nonpublic schools in the county from reopening the fall semester. Gail's change came after the state's health secretary sent a memo to local health officers saying counties can't have a blanket policy ordering all private schools not to reopen. So it appears. Perhaps the governor's office did have something to do with us through the state's health secretary. On Friday afternoon, Gail's announced that he rescinded his order that would have closed private schools until at least October 1st when the order would be reevaluated. Gilles issued a similar order a week ago was overturned three days later by an order by Governor Hogan Kills, then rescinded his first order and issued a second order with same prohibition, citing a different part of the law. It keeps going back and forth. It's been a tennis match here between Montgomery County between Rockville in Annapolis. On Friday after receiving a second mandate. Gail's issued a new health directive in order that advises nonpublic schools to not reopen for in person instruction for the fall semester. I continue I'm quoting now. I continue to strongly believe that based on the current state of surveillance and epidemiological data It is neither safe nor in the inherent of excuse me, nor in the interest of public health for any school to return for in person learning this fault, Gail's wrote in the new order, Gilles wrote that he rescinded his order after Robert Neill, the state's health secretary, wrote in a memo on Thursday that a local health officer should instead provide individual analysis of a school rather than a blanket policy. So that's that's where we are and better with. This comes right after a group of six Montgomery County families and to Catholic schools filed a federal lawsuit you heard from one of those parents named in that lawsuit yesterday, the programme James Lawson. He'll join us coming up again here in the five o'clock hour to discuss this latest development, whether it changes his lawsuit or not. Hearing was scheduled for August 14th on this a week from today. Um According to Tim Maloney, the attorney for the plaintiffs in that lawsuit, Hey, wrote a statement here, saying, This is a victory for more than the For the more than 22,000 students in Montgomery County and their families who are committed to the religious and private education. Their schools are now prepared to make safe reopening decisions based upon CDC and state guidelines. I'm sure they are and I hope they are my concern here is that Dr Travis Gail's seems His track record appears to suggest that he will use whatever power he is given through the Montgomery County. Government. To infringe on the rights of these private and parochial schools from reopening and the parents and Children who attend those schools and if he has any possible way of shutting these schools down upon individual inspection, he will do it. So I I hope that the private schools are able to meet these standards. So, buddy, But here's the important way this political conversation plays out here and why this really matters. There are a lot of openings now for you and I to challenge our elected officials in Montgomery County, and by the way we talk about this, because it relates to Montgomery County and a huge portion of you live in Montgomery County, but understand something this applies to Fairfax that supplies to Arlington and Alexandria. It applies to Prince William County. It applies the Loudon County of Proud Frederick County in Prince George's County and Randall County and how we're going This applies to Washington, D. C the supplies to the entire region. The state of Maryland has now determined That private and parochial schools have a right to be open for regular in class instruction, provided they can meet the state and federal health standards. Right. So now If your parent and your child is in a government run school. Is it? Not reasonable for you to petition your government petition the people who are your public servants who work for you as your representatives. In the executive branch or the legislative branch. No matter what jurisdiction you're talking about, Is it not appropriate for you to now step forward and say Excuse me. Excuse me over here. You see, I don't pay a private or parochial school to instruct my child I pay Ah, but loaded property taxes for you to provide a legitimate educational experience for my child in a government run school. Can I ask you a question? With all due respect, with all due respect now Could I please ask a question of my elected officials and I, and I think I deserve an answer if a private and parochial school if Georgetown Prep Is able TTO open for classroom instruction provided they meet the state and federal health standards and guidelines under covert 19. Why can't Bethesda Chevy Chase High School open? You please explain that to me..

Daria Gavrilova on finding out what makes her happy
"Daria Gavrilova Dario Welcome or should I say Yeah Dasha that's about it. Thanks. Thanks for having me. I really excited to have a chat We've been in the lockdown so. As like yes. Sure. Chat. You guys probably not a lot of people to be honest right now not seeing too many people and. Also. Look at ten spicer were trying to be even Loris say. Because we are still allowed to go to training, but we're just being careful. So we create our own Babul within this bobble. There's another bubble it's just like. Crazy but that's okay. It seems like Australia's taking the quarantine current Ivar. So so so seriously because you were out of lockdown on your back in lockdown yet because our K. went up again. So they're probably GONNA keep going up for the loss while before gone back down but. Yet, wherein stage three right now is Toria somewhat every state. So even though you've been quarantined and all that I mean, have you actually stop training at all during this whole lockdown quarantine thing or have you not really been able to train as much? The first lockdown were lucky. We got all the gym equipment and. Hope back home and I just did my own workouts but I had like everything I had barbells ahead. You know all the heavy stuff. The chain I had the what black. Though I was able to train almost as normal, and we're allowed to go outside and do sessions outside and then yet. We're allowed to get back on the tennis court on a few weeks later. So that was the case and now. With tennis they restrictions noticed straight. So we're able to still come to the tennis and train. What's your thoughts though in when you will play a tournament because I know we have a scheduled tentatively starting from August onward where do you plan to go if anywhere? Well. I don't know to be on the I still have no idea I think many people due to illness. It's like the two options either starting in the in America or go straight to Europe. But I haven't decided. Let's talk about if. Everything everything still up in the air like ribs the. If it's all happening or not. So I'll just decide as light as possible. I think the one thing that I've taken from this whole quarantine whether or not the WTO starting again is just we know nothing that's all I know is that we know nothing there's nothing that's concrete. There's nothing written in stone at the moment though are. Able to come to the US like if you were to leave tomorrow for tournament, if there was a tournament, Mar, would you be able to head allows way? I'll will have to have an exemption and how hard is that to get well, we apply for an exemption to go overseas So we I think we're allowed to come see West but the de Straton government doesn't really want us to travel. So we need to have an exemption and we all applied for it and we still haven't had the answer but well, for example, arena already that shit got. An exemption, a world's intense. So quarantine what have you been up to staying sane I know not just training surely there's been a lot of new hobbies fun things to get into out of TIKTOK FU talks. I don't dance take talks 'cause I can't but I just. Make Fun of myself in posted anyway because it looks hilarious what else Well, I'm always been a bit like artsy artsy. I.

It's awesome. Have your. Wedding plans taken a bit of a pause because of this whole thing. Yeah. We actually decided pretty early decided lack marsh that registered a postponed until next year
Motherhood in a Pandemic with Tanya Moodie
"Tennis about your family my mom and Dad. Both. In Ottawa in Canada, that's where I was boon. and my step dad as well. He's glorious. He's been my mom now for like thirty years. So he's very much a family and and then my brothers in Toronto he's an actress well, producer director and a creator and his what's in my brother's named Andrew and his wife's name is Tanna spelt the same way wow. So are they to ten meetings? There are two Chinese, and my partner's name is Andrew. Hang on. Boo. Hello. About two nieces over there in Toronto and then so my family here I've got a twelve year old girl named willow. And that's it. Excellent. Your twelve yard is just started year seven. Finishing. Because you've, you've got one on the way. Yes. I have just got a daughter in your six and we just had like the zoom. Deputy head. Of School and so we are just entering the kind of whole mine change. Our Periods come. Online David. It's really. Out of biggest the yeah I am too bracing myself because all the whole thing like she's been fairly hippie south London local primary school. Uniforms and all sorts of serious. Big. Thing. How's your first year being I mean it's been weird obviously and yes in a cupboard but. I have to say I'm one of the lucky parents in that. If she was a younger, I would have had to be dealing with homeschooling in an active way what I mean six actually the curriculum in your six is very hard for them. Obviously, it's straightforward because led up to it but if you're going to ask I mean I can't even do kind of long division. Wants me to help with something and I'm like. Well this is how I did today in nineteen. Seventy. Spending. Here's a calculator. By hand. And then it would have had to be way more hands on. Whereas the seven will I have found? It could just be a terrible ma'am. I do admit that. It could just be because I'm a very bad person but I basically done nothing. That sounds Dreamy I've done nothing. She's been in her room. Doing actual classes they have to sign in on zoom every morning at eight thirty, eight, forty, five. Yeah they do the full schedule of classes on say wow. And she has breaks they even do pe. She's got two room. She got my Yoga Mat. She's the whole Shebang but from home. And we still have the report cards and everything. So she's kept up. Wow and I just stood back and you can just like stop smoking the garden having been. Doing. I kissing by the garden shared. A room like she's. If you tips for the transition surviving the transition well I think I had to make sure I didn't get. Involved or helicopter around her social life because for me when I realized, it was that the most important thing is that socially she feels anchored. Yeah. All this concern about. This class that class her grades teaching did it, and actually at that stage is entirely secondary. It's about her making friends because that's the only thing for my daughter that she was concerned about. Her nerves came from. Will I make any friends because you didn't know anybody at hunters to to you know what I mean. And so I got on board with her to just focus on that and not be don't talk about. Other stuff. Parents would that we would get on the kiss in a twist about. The sleepless night. Yeah it's my business. So she'd be like, Oh, I want make Koshi. Will up he? Didn't. Give, confidence in the of the first day meeting and she went to school in the first week with a stinking cold. So she was a bit kind of glassy-eyed anyway she's patient zero. I think. It's nice. To know where we'd have. Yeah. So actually that was a bit of it ended up being a bit of an openness to meet some people could be sputtering away and go to are you? Okay she went no, I'm dying apparently made them laugh. You Bronte sisters.
Airbus Makes Autonomous Takeoff & Landing
"Airbus they sell flying plane just completed successful to act a taxi takeoff and landing. So this is not a small plane either this was the eighth HR fifty one thousand X. WB. And obviously. full-scale like commercial, Wayne which is pretty cool. So is this getting close to market is something that's in our near future autonomous or we still a ways away why I kind of wonder if this is driven by all the can I, fly the plane like just GonNa be pilot to push the button no. Undefined that will not happen for a long time but I, it's a large airplane, the three fifty, a bigger playing the dash one thousand is is a very long aircraft. I think. Airbus's flexing their muscle a little bit and I think Boeing would have done it already to if they could have they got other problems right now they're trying to deal with. The ability to. Fly An aircraft autonomously of that size, and particularly taxi taxis the place where a lot more difficulties it is not easy. So. You have to have a very, very talented engineering staff to even get close to do something like that and great software engineers and with all the ev to. Electric vertical-takeoff-landing aircraft talking by being autonomous and Honeywell and some others and Garm, and doing a lot of things that are nearly autonomous. I'm not surprised they Airbus's stepped up and say, okay, watch this. No way no way they went to show that yeah. Airbus isn't playing either they if they wanted to do it, they could do it but on the other side. Airbus has watched some of the problems that Boeing and Airbus as had with politics make mistakes in the air and I know Boeing this past week talked about the CEO was talking about. How the aircraft is, GonNa. Be More autonomous in that. They were GonNa let pilots make as many. critical decisions whether they could get their craft in trouble and Airbus has been down that path. His was done that long ago. So I'm not surprised that Airbuses doing it. How how would they would ever? I don't think wherever to the point in the next ten years. I don't see there's going to be autonomous aircraft in a commercial sense either cargo or commercial flight. But if it does release some of the burden on the pilots and make the airplane fly cleaner and smoother on all that I would expect a lot of those pieces of information that to Airbus has developed on this project will be integrated into the aircraft over time will be well, how does this affect pilots in the long term? So say you know ten years from now pilots don't have to take off they don't have to land. And they don't have to do that much. Do they become quickly out of practice like actually having to do these things to say the system is like not working one day and they have to land it and haven't landed a plane in a hundred flights I mean is this Nina I mean like if you don't Cook dinner every night, you get rusty at at whipping up of really nice meal. You know what I mean yes I think that's totally true I it's just a nature. Outcome that it's inevitable the the other side of that is. Companies like Airbus and Boeing. Aircraft Company have the ability to create simulators and put pilots in simulators into them. Quote fly the airplane. because the the one thing you don't want to burn a bunch of fuel getting a pilot up to speed if you don't have to And if there's any complacency. The regulatory bodies like Yasa and the FAA will be all over it. And the the first people usually complain about not getting enough lifetime other pilots quite honestly they wanna be as. As. Ever that's that's the big push by all the pilots. Unions is proficiency proficiency proficiency and proficiency means seat time actually flying the airplane in fact I remember flying on southwest. A couple of times this that's been tennis years ago maybe a little bit longer. Remember flying I remember the aircraft being hand flown. For landing I thought boy that is so it's been a longest time that I've been on an aircraft been hand flown because he just put the out how do you put on the flight path and it just flies it but the south I ask southwest pilot while was leaving the airplane you flew that you flew that by hand all the way down he goes. Yeah. It's it's he said it's good for US pilots to fly the aircraft. It just gives us more proficiency. So I don't see this is taking over. Time. But I do think there are when having redundant systems or helpful systems on aircraft and pilots out of trouble.
Tennis is back; James Blake discusses the challenges
"Hello. and. Welcome to the tennis podcast. It is Monday the third of August twenty, twenty and two. There is tennis actual tennis. Not, exhibition tennis competitive tennis featuring plays, we've heard of playing for ranking points and prize money. We haven't seen any of it yet. It's just been. It's just been qualifying for the weekend but at the Palermo WPA event does get underway the main draw in earnest. Later on today David's Matt I, Give You Tennis It has suddenly occurred to me that we were together when tennis was last to think. Remember when we were watching. Dubai. Was it when Jovic Matt. Watch. Kim Clijsters Return in my lounge. Yeah. That feels like a different lifetime. I. Think. I was. Kind of the last weekend of tennis, which was the Davis Cup qualifying which. Never, find run event, which is taking place to eighteen months after they. After they, qualified for it. And the even then there were. It was kind of in the background there were rumbling signs of covid nineteen. I think the airport I was at in Hungary actually had a case and they shut the airport down and but then two days later everything just shut down it's amazing how quickly it happened. Just. Tennis tennis is back and it came back with a tennis way because I think the first day of qualifying in Palermo ended gone to am in the morning. kind of like we're doing this again. Given there's no crowds to worry about a no corporate lunches to around the there is no excuse for that is the because he can stop playing at eight am. And you can play on his you can play on his many courses is as you want or need to I mean how how it is? So tennis is it like comfortingly reassuringly tennis. is finishing yeah but also stupid. We stopped terriers and your we. When you didn't go to the airport because Indian Wells was canceled. You had a fully packed suitcase. State fully packed for some time. What is status? Is still my bedroom floor it hasn't been unpacked is had items removed from I would describe it now as haw full. Because Yeah I've removed you know the old parachutes. Only items only items with an elasticated waste obviously because lockdown But yes, all items with an elasticated waste have been removed from it. And all items which you might have to wear a Nike shoe with awesome accessories they remain in the case. Keeping most of. My bedroom floor. I said I said I would leave it the like Tracy unmade beds for the duration of Tennessee's absence and I'm a woman of my word five months. Yup. There's no. Mouse. No no mouth. Remembering the mouse, the other day and thinking was that dream It was that feels like a different lifetime. The masses in the suitcase I know why inspect that regularly? Don't you don't joke about that because that is that is those are the dark thoughts 'cause my mind when I'm trying to get to sleep. So. Yes. My suitcase remains on unpacked a spouse. Now I should probably technically go to unpack it this afternoon before three PM, which is when right the main draw of Paloma starts in the UK. Literally part of the Furniture Knob? Yes. Okay. I will. I will consider that we WANNA pitch empty. I mean that will just be a pitch of an MTC case day K. Okay, sure and case with just a mouse corpse at the Boscovich. It's It's the content that everyone's waiting for you. Welcome. Seven terms of tennis. News from this week, there's been no sort of big bombshell news. The deadline of the thirty first of July has been put. On the US Open confirming. Wants him four whether or not? It was going ahead? We haven't had that sort of concrete hundred percent confirmation. From the US Open from everything we're hearing as much as the little concerned around a concern around everything we're hearing suggests that with a heck of a lot of regulations in place in and details of those those rules and regulations have been. Leaking sporadically of the last couple of weeks, it will be going ahead. I mean seems to me that the only outstanding detailed in terms of it being categoric is. The quarantine situation on reentering the you and I think I mean in some ways that is I don't know whether that might even be made easier by the fact that it sounds like Madrid isn't going to happen anymore in this is not quite such a rush to get back to to Europe in order to play the very next event.
LGBTQ+ representation in cybersecurity
"You tell me some some some juicy bits from your autobiography? What kind of stuff? Are we going to cover here. Let's let's you know. Let's let's for a little bit not too much but just a little bit for the readers. I'd have to be careful because I gotta take care of my boy Jim minutes. Oliver Wiley Okay Yeah so great guy by the way. Cool cat. So. Widely doesn't publish autobiographies. So technically I checked call it that it is a non fictional narrative. I am. Real territory between more autobiography whatever exactly. Exactly. But so yeah, it's it's really it's my coming up story. It's my former life and my former skin you know as Eric Hines. And and Not. So where does say that name And you know my transition and really you sort of becoming Loki. Where I transitioned in two thousand and eight, and my journey is a trans woman in. A male dominated world male dominated industry in cybersecurity. My world is cyber security right and You know what that experience has been like just. It's interesting for me because it's very. it's a very unique perspective being able to say that I've lived my life is to completely different sexes to completely different genders you know and and living my life is a man living my life as a woman It's very interesting because you don't really prepare for that. You don't prepare because is a man you read about the inequality. Roy of of men and women in the workplace. The wage disparity being passed up for job opportunities in the workplace as a woman over a man with the same or less credentials or experience. It's a real thing and I didn't prepare myself for what that would be like and it's it's you would hope that. An industry as as you know, new is cyber security. 'cause if you think about cyber security isn't very old, it's not like us. Our banking. Or. Investing, it's it's A. It's a nascent industry that we are trying to figure out as we go right and So you would think it would be more progressive. When it comes to equality and inclusion in. It's not you know and I. You know there was a tweet storm that occurred. I. Think you brought it up in a previous episode where I got involved in to a thread that actually became my most viral tweet and it was a about a gentleman who made the made the statement that cybersecurity moves too. Fast for women run and and that women would rather be at home and be homemakers and be family oriented versus being in Cybersecurity, and it was shocking to me is this is this is a very prevalent narrative for some reason You know there's a lot of people that believe that you know, hey, a cybersecurity isn't for women and here's why. I always from played devil's advocate I was trying look at it from other people's perspective But it's hard to find out a lot of things I'm reading. Because you know I mean there's there's a lot of I think. There's a lot of things that people need to be educated on when it comes to just women issues, but trans issues like you know there's this belief and I hear it a lot. That Trans women shouldn't be allowed to participate in Women Only Sports, right? That's so stupid to me. You know and is in I think it was actually South Rogan's podcast where he actually talked about this and in the narrative is being spread a lot. I understand I think from that perspective but people don't understand that when you go through hr it. Your upper body strength as a as a man as man's body gets depleted you know your your upper body strength. Pretty much goes away in deteriorates. There are women on the tennis court. I. Used to be a competitive used to play tennis competitively and go to tournaments, and there's women biological women that could kick my ass on the tennis court you know and their biological women have. Much, more per body strength than me and you know I think it's an I. Don't think it's ignorance I. Think it's education. It's it's. A learning curve. Yeah and like like for example, martial arts, you know there are biological women that could wipe the floor with. And and you know so I think I think it's educating people understanding and also the unique perspectives were probably talk about the blog article here in a minute unique perspectives at the Lgbtq community brings two teams brings to the workplace. Yeah. that that that you may not find in a less inclusive culture

Arab record in the analyses and your ignorance rich of any state as if you can follow me. Something I'd love to get your thoughts on to what I've seen in bit is, is they small indie studios may make say one mobile game it'll explode it'll go huge but then they really struggled to get that follow up game. Is there a lot of pressure from these studios? Maybe they've gained investment off the back of their previous success in the being pushed like you need more than a one hit wonder. I think the win seats in never run in the studio a who is being on the publisher side of the investor side or the executive produce aside so. It's a very difficult business Tell you want I you know it's like being tennis. You have one federer you have one the dog. Thousand Meetings of. Or? So people tend to look at one.

With the to studio that I've found is, is guys deb's in big gain of Utah everything inside the game in before you also did some marketing daughters, your some hours.

iPhone Photography award winners announced ahead of next iPhone release
"Which iphone should I buy? Yes. Were nearly in August and just a few weeks away from an apple will introduce the latest iphones devices that they are sure to tell us or so state of the art in advanced we'll feel silly on old phones right? Well hold onto him a little longer. The question takes on new found relevance at least for me with the winners of the annual. Photography awards which were just announced. This contest attracts photographers from all over the world to submit their best, and you really don't win anything but praise. But that's okay. Here's your headline. One of the winners one for a photo taken on a ten year old iphone four. Not The ten series, not the tennis upgrade from twenty, eight teen or the phone with the best iphone camera to date the eleven pro. An iphone four. So, do you really need that new phone with the best camera of course, not granted the SPEC sound pretty puny compared to today's standards five Megapixel and seven twenty p video as opposed to twelve megapixel camera and four K. video on the Levin pro plus the addition of three lenses to work with Super Wide Angle Wide Angle and portrait. Now. The iphone four shot was of three people in. Peru for the people category the grand. Prize winner went to a photographer who shot on the IPHONE ten from a few years back while first place went to a photographer from India shooting on the twenty fourteen era iphone six. Now I could argue with you until I'm blue in the face while the latest cameras are better than the old ones. But the fact is for most people, it just doesn't matter brownies and instant matic's were the cameras of the masses when I was growing up not fancy lars there's a reason for this

We have Eric Hutchinson. He's been on the show before Eric is a friend of big. Band of tennis and we talk a bit about what it's like to be a solo performer solar artists in the time of Cova probably not dissimilar to being a singles player. Eric has a new album class of one, thousand, nine, hundred, Eighty, eight. So we talk a bit about the process a bit about this sort of enforced break that we are all on. What the overlaps between music and tennis. All right now and some tennis chatter with a big tennis fan. So Sam Corey versed Haircut Simpson's second. Let's start in. West. Virginia. You're. In the bubble. I am. Tennis bubble. Let's let's start the president as a been. IT'S BEEN AWESOME You know for me I hadn't told a match in. Australian Open because my wife had a baby in February also I mean it's been five months. So I was excited to go I think all the players here are are really loving it and it's fine and we're finally back plans some competition and it's been great i. mean the I've never I don't know if you've ever been here. I. Know I haven't most you'll have in, but the resort is awesome So it is a bubble but at the same time you can there's golf fishing a bunch of restaurants you can go. You know skeet shooting eighteen. So you're you don't feel like you're just you're playing tennis and going back to your room. There's so much to do outside tennis, which is really made it fun for everyone because we are here for for three full weeks. And it's great to be back in absolute competition and. Going to court I mean it's going great so far. Some sounds like summer camp widsom competitive tennis thrown in. That's exactly what it feels like especially 'cause you're you're in the mountains that it's got a very, very much camp field. We're we're only doing this audio. I have to say you're your backdrop is tremendous. It looks like I mean you can kind of see like. Beautiful. No it's. It's this part of the I've never been here like I said it's I mean we went ATV and a few days ago, and you go up in the mountains in the views and. I. Spectacular. Doesn't sound like a bad way to spend July. What's been the? What about sort of the training, the nutrition, the hydration everything that comes with competitive playing how have you been able to deal with? With that. I, mean for me personally that's been that's been tough. The last like months to find the motivation for practice knowing or not knowing when we're GONNA. Start. You know you're kind of always like like apprenticed for like, wow not studying for I'll just as the next day and then I do the next day. So you know the last two months I haven't practicing hard but there's there's a practice shape and there's match shape. It's hard to really get back into your match shape until you play match. So. I'm doing the best. I can I've got Christian Cossio who travels with me as like a physio here with me. So we've been in the gym every day and working on my body. So physically actually feel fine because you know the team that I'm on I'm only playing singles every day. So I've literally got a thirty minute sets of five. And that's all the tennis I'm playing. So off days and even some matchdays I'm finding the other guys have updates in in an extra and extra practice and spending time in the gym and trying to make the most of it won't here. What's the level play? Overall? It's been high I. Mean I've played tennis twenty years because of the incentives this year online means finals, winters, It's intense. The teams are into it i. mean every you really feel like everyone's kind of laying it out there and It's made it better. You know I it's fun of the past but these incentives, I, it's it's up the level and there's a few more come on. There's a the teams kind of gathering around over a little bit more. So it's it's been really fun and I hope they continue to do is incentives can. Stays at this level. Yeah. I mean I was GONNA. Say, this is an interesting. You're a world team tennis veteran. This is unlike any other season you've had you just. League can. Use this crazy. This crazy three weeks as a springboard. I hope. So I. Mean Look at Fred Leading Eric Davidson behind it and they love tennis and You know they seem to have the financial backing to help move it forward in a good direction and Like the nave because of what happened, I mean the level and the talent they have this year is like no other year they've had world tanks. See this type of caliber players for a full season. So hopefully I mean I everyone that plays this year know especially those top players are GonNa say oh. My God this has been fun like this has been a great. Few weeks of practice, it's fun to be on a team and hopefully for the years moving forward, they're going to those top players GonNa WanNa do it again. Give, give us your your like top top four players of the season. If you're writing in your MVP, votes would be Gosh I would have to look at kind of like the the win loss record. you know Bethany Matic Santa's up there because she's just it seems like every mixed doubles in every doubles cheese. You know winning most of those. Sets. closers was up there until she got her she was just on fire. So I'm still GONNA put closers in the mix and then. Not so I'M GONNA try to I'm trying to think of a guy that's. been somewhat dominant. I can't tell I. Don't know I would need to look at like. He's been winning losing.
Julia Elbaba on keeping her pro dreams alive
"Our special guest is someone who was a legend in College Julia. L. Baba. High Girls! Thanks for having me. A brief rundown of Julian tennis career, she was number one in college as a junior Uva four time all American set a record at UvA singles with one hundred and thirty three wins, and then took her skills. Bro tour which is has been ranked as high as number three seventy two, so we want to talk about your career. Your Life, your tennis, story and kind of what's next for you because you're in New York I guess I. Where have you been for this whole pandemic? Have you been in New York or if you've been? So my father is a frontline health care worker in New York so I decided instead of like kind of staying away from him in the House I thought you know, let me just go to back to my. Stomping grounds at Virginia where things were kind of magical for me there i. just honestly they say best. Four years are in college and I never boating and when I actually went to school. I totally understood why they say that I can't get enough of that place. And I feel like many other tennis players that had attended UBA same way 'cause we were kind of all in quarantine together in Charlottesville from about mid March two up until a couple of weeks ago. We were kind of all. They're not necessarily hanging out, but we were all doing our thing in Charlottesville. Some people were hitting, but Just being there with so nice and The situation is a lot better there than New York is far as corona virus. So with regards to your college experience I. Mean I went to college for two years and I mean. You're clearly very excited talking about your college experience. What would you say like sticks out? What is it that you love so much about it? I just really appreciate a team environment of tennis and kind of playing for team. I actually that's the hardest thing I've been dealing with after call just kind of transitioning back to the individual lifestyle so playing for a team playing for your coaches, the school. The fans something about that was. Just brought me to life every day, and it was, it was beautiful and and also I'm a person that thrives in a situation where I have more than one thing going on multitasking so doing school with tennis I really that busy lifestyle, and that's kind of actually why. I started my own podcast as a way to have something else to juggle with professional tennis right now. It's a tricky time. I feel like especially. You just turned twenty six and you sound like you're still very connected to your college experience, but you did. Take your skills to the pro tour. Can you tell us where you're at in your career with tennis? Yeah so up. Until the beginning of two thousand, nineteen, I was going strong with competing traveling around the world. And then unfortunately, my body is very easily injured. I have a very muscular physique and it's just. Primarily like just genetics people think what are you doing, Jim that your body so muscular and strong like? Oh, you can ask my mom. But honestly I feel like the muscle mass. Mass! makes me more prone to injury and I'm actually now unhealthy but I was dealing with an injury for the past year. A torn UCLA in my right elbow, which is like You probably know what Tommy John. If you have to get surgery, it's Tommy John Surgery. But I didn't need that. Luckily I was actually ready to start competing again once. Quarantine hit sides kind of bad lockwood the timing. What's been one of the things that you've found other than the fact that you have to play for yourself now? I mean being on the tour is not easy. A lot of people just think that Oh. I was a good college player. You know now I'm going to just transition easily into the tour, but what was kind of the most shocking thing for you. Definitely the adjustment to just being on the road by herself. Obviously, if you know you're doing really well, you can bring a whole entourage and it's great. physios of massage therapists families all your support system, but also I Adore on court coaching. I it just really works well for me. And I get really tight and nervous on tennis court so having that coach during matches especially in college, I definitely thrived in that environment. So I'm actually very. Much like into trying to have coaching during matches in protest I think that would just be super cool. Tennis is like the only sport that doesn't have that like why.
Covid-19 and the future of tennis
"Folks and welcome once again to the tennis podcast in a particular welcome to David that you heard in our Intri, they are. kickstarter backers of Oz and today. They're going to be our guest. Editors for listener questions special, which means that we will have to remember how to make podcast because it's been a couple of weeks we need to. remember opinions and all sorts of things. Yes, there are questions about the ultimate tennis showdown mat-su. Dust off your knuckles. He's easily in fighting mood today's map because as I look at him here on my laptop screen. He is wearing his Fulham shirt. You Resplendent Matt. Early on the Fulham, sure we didn't kick off for another ten hours or so, but yes quite quite nervous today, but wearing them colors, mets team Fulham. Playing in the first leg of the playoffs, this is stage one three in their attempt to get promoted back to another season of misery in the primarily. Alongside David, he's already confirmed. Be Subjecting himself to a year of misery in the primarily next season. I e the night before I watched. My, team just stumble over the finish line I watched. What fit in the Premier League Neil four down against Manchester ccn about half an hour and Really, did change my mind as to whether I wanted to go open all. It made me. It made me think you know my. Maybe, think back to when we were when we were booking and planning a trip to the French Open. and. Planning our early days. shedule around your. Travel to the playoff finals. Wembley I said, would it be okay if I trip back to London for the final during the French? Open and we decided that that would be content gold, yes. And then the universe conspired against us, and here we are six months later, making more lockdown content. Enjoy everyone. But we love to listen to questions ones, don't we? It gives us a chance to rant and rave and. Give! Opinions about things and it is drew David. They've. Picked out the best of the questions from social media they've they've come up with some of their own as well. And a good questions quite meaty, so proposals fakes ready. Oh Yeah Yeah. Matt's never looked already had a haircut. He's yeah. What do we think of the haircut? It's pretty dramatic as he did. Go four and a half months without touching. Any haircut would have been quite dramatic because. Quite. Did You keep the her? No. As I said God. What A WEIRD QUESTION OKAY! To lockdown, everybody being on. We'll obviously quite a lot of questions that have come in about lockdown about covert about how it's going to affect tennis. Is Kind of unavoidable to to address all of those issues. And try and speculate about a completely unpredictable. Because frankly that's what the situation has been in instill is but. We make our money by predicting the unpredictable say goes. It? I I question. will go with the something covid related. Is the players responsibility to do what safe for themselves or is it? The tournaments responsibility to guarantee safety regarding covert. A Nice easy one. To to to ease yourselves and he wants to take that. Why I don't think it is possible to guarantee anything really you know. The the tournaments rinsed Francis the US Open. It is incumbent upon them to create the safest environment possible and to convince the plaza, the bubble that they are creating and the passage they're creating into that bubble is a secure as possible, but ultimately the players have got to decide whether that's something that they are prepared to do whether. They're comfortable to do whether they're. Also prepared to stay within an environment like that because they cannot be breaking the protocol. We've seen in world team. Tennis. They from what it seems like did a pretty decent job of creating a bubble. Daniel Collins decided to go elsewhere. for I, I mean she. She did say it seems that she needed some treatment for her. What's the condition? She has rheumatoid arthritis which Kim. You know okay. I sympathize with her, but. She brought the bubble and therefore got thrown out a world team tennis. We saw Griego Dimitrov who tested positive for. ovid's during the until. gave an interview last night and He's had a really terrible time with illness I. Probably mild symptoms relatively speaking and yet he said he was in bed for three weeks and he's still feeling the effects of it now so. Players have got to make the call as to how much of a risk they're prepared to take. HOW COMFORTABLE LEAD! Enduring, cyber, there is it is impossible to guarantee safety I think.
West Hollywood, Los Angeles, Closes 2 Parks Due To Noncompliance With Mask, Social Distancing Protocols
"Hollywood city officials have issued an emergency order to close two parks because users are ignoring health protocols protocols designed to inhibit the spread of covert 19. The shutdown orders took effect yesterday, a plumber and West Hollywood park in this city employee says that people using the park many not wearing masks, the social distancing We're not happy. You're understanding in the slightest insulting people today. The park is closed. I don't listen. They cost us out. I just don't care, especially areas like this are very entitled like you can't tell me what they want to do anyway. So a woman named Brooke was more than a little aggravated of the careless actions of some of the users of the park. People get it together. We need to be a community and help each other out right now. She hoped the tennis courts would remain open in both locations What that'll depend on whether officials judge that health protocols were being followed.
Fox Sports debuts virtual fans for MLB live broadcast
"Night Major League Baseball became the first major sport to go ahead and broadcast games. Weird state where people are thrilled to have entertainment as we're talking, we don't know how thing rated. Crates well. I find it particularly amusing. That Fox sports has said they will debut virtual fans in the live broadcast during this shortland twenty twenty season, so the people people who watch this well as seen CGI fans brought to them. You know with Hollywood special effects and I have to say I think it's an awfully good idea. Well, the initial broadcasts with the crowd noise has been a significant improvement over just watching a silent baseball field with no fans and you can hear. Hear the BASS coaches talking to each other like that's not good, but you know they're really trudging forward now. Baseball and other team sports are in this odd situation where there is so much money on the line that they kind of have to move forward, and they're doing it in whatever way they can, and the audience at least from the preliminary number suggests they want it to the ratings for some of the preseason scrimmages in these major markets were gigantic and. And Fox reported that they had sold out ninety percent of their ad inventory for these sixty game major league baseball season that is going to happen start over the next couple of months, and this is really the big test. Because yes, there's been tennis. There's been golf, but this is the big restart of team sports, and the NBA is going to follow, and they're all living in this bubble in Orlando Florida. Trying to get the NBA restarted Major League Baseball. Baseball is trying to restart even as one of the players on the Washington nationals tested positive for covid nineteen. The day that the season was set to start, so they're going to be these setbacks, but I don't see the League's canceling their seasons because of them, there's just so much money at stake. They're going to trudge forward and the big one. Coming up is the NFL and what they're going to do. The revenue for Fox sports for Turner for ESPN. Is desperately needed I. This is billions of dollars in lost money if they can't get these games up and start selling this. Thing so it's critical and. Obviously there's pressure all around to find a way to make it work and for the NFL which is by far the biggest draw in television, the training camps are set to start and the players union has agreed tentatively to a testing procedure, but there's no agreement on whether there's going to be fans at these games, and whether the season is going to come off like it would otherwise they cancelled some of the preseason games, but whether the actual season is. Is going to happen and how that's going to look is still a big question, and for television that billions and billions of dollars in revenue in the balance, and we're already seeing several college football leagues, either pushing their seasons or cancelling them entirely, and that's going to be the next domino effect. This virus cannot get under control in the next month or two. Then you're GonNa see College. Football pretty much eliminated for the fall in my in my prediction. Some leagues will probably try to continue, but ultimately if you can't keep college players safe, then you can't have a football season so. We'll see what the NFL does, but college football is a gigantic business as well on a more frivolous note. I will just observe that Fox. Had plans in terms of the baseball game to to thin the digital crowd. If there isn't like an eight to one game, and the crowd normally would go, so at least they're keeping that part real. Wow, can they make the dodgers? Fans leave in the seventh inning. I'm sure the virtual died. Here's fans will want to get on the freeway. Justice, the real ones
In Heat and Humidity, Watch for Lawn Diseases.
"Tell us a little bit about all this hot and humid weather. I know that now's the time you have to watch for lawn. Diseases. Well mark that is indeed true, and that's that's. It's kind of an annual thing. However We've had let us where I live now that that it varies considerably, but we've had. been rains some deluge, and then submitted ranged kept lawns moist to the points at the do point Do Point on. The grass can last until nine ten, nor even eleven o'clock in the morning to the point that that. Okay that much moisture. High humidity which is I'M GONNA. Say just simply yesterday. I tried to watch some windows. And I. Put it try because it was done at eight thirty in the morning. Before the Sun hit! It was so humid that the windows wouldn't dry when glass won't dry. It's H-. Hot, humid so anyhow. Fungi exist in the air at all times. They're blowing around there. Probably in the first thousand feet above the ground, and they settle and a Cetera when they settle on a susceptible plant and each kind of like the human cold, each each person gets a cold for a different reason, but it's still basically the same. Win Those spores are on the grass blades, and then we get a cold shower at six thirty in the evening and or high humidity or both the whole night long. Is a wonderful time for those fungi to Germany when they germinate, they send what is indeed kind of a tiny little room into the plant where it's been can grow if he is a fungi. That's going to cause disease He does that ring now. I don't know that these things are running rampant, but I have been told about red. Dollar spot. Guy. Guy Boaters Lawn I. Don't know week or so ago that he his tennis shoes turned orange. Well that indicates to me. That is lawn has arrested disease. What to do about it well. I. See about getting into a high rise you to mess with it, but more importantly. Some of these things are when I'm GONNA call natural. That doesn't mean they're good, but blue glasses which are prevalent in our area along with them, some of the new tall will turf type all fescue. Each one is a living in a d much baloney on it. There's hundreds of millions of them in a given long. When there is a spore when there is high humidity darkness. And, then temperatures are up. These guys are guys. Tales Germinate. Take a hold on the lawn and cause a problem now. sometimes you can't present them by putting on. They fun just side before the fact, but then how do you know that's going to happen? Well, that's where you have a lawn care company. That's that's where they try to stay did. I'M GONNA. Life in this now to Arborist who told me in a in a dry year when he sprays for fun decides and and protection of plants. He becomes a miracle worker. In a wet year, which we've had three of a row, he can spray with the same stuff same same everything. Mean to do just as good a job, and at the same time the fungi will germinate, and the way they go and prevention will have helped, but he won't stop the diseases so right now I would say along with other lawn care factors set that blade high, and and as a matter of fact high as you can is a good thing, which and then does trap some more water, but it also allows the plans to have enough leaf hype to gain enough sun to make enough food to sustain, or let's just say direct toward a well grown plant, even though there's millions of and that's that's the overall and it so Try It will if it comes down to your needs to water your lawn. Do not water in the evening. I'm going to say after dinner time at all I want that long going into nighttime dries and be on the surface at least so the next morning you can sit up the sprinkler and run it for three hours a spot deliver that one inch of water you'll have benefited the lawn, but drive by Neuner soon thereafter, and it'll start holding the disease at bay, just in a more or less normal way, or let's say by virtue of the way you care for the lawn.
Twitter Will Be Fun Today - The College Kids Who Hacked Into Twitter
"Today's guests. His Hip Awan CEO of Afani. Secure and private cell phone service locum his Heeb. Thank you Laura for home. You'll show. You were one of the investigators in touch with the young people who hacked twitter last week and gain control of prominent accounts, including those of Joe. Biden Obama Elon Musk and others as well as those of crypt companies like coin, base and finance, and when they had control those accounts, they were soliciting bitcoin from twitter users. How did you get in touch with the hackers? So Laura be in like. four-time itself, so then after I was so pissed off that angry that I said I need to solve this problem, and so I've entered into a form that relates how they have those accounts holiday getting pretty much all the ring of how they operate so. When you say that they had had your twitter account, nor they have my Sim Sark four times. Okay, and when you say Sim, swaps just described that in case, listeners does up. Does improper pretty much. What happened is like someone will take the form so the underground market like think about Ebay, but like I knew democracy with information. So you said your name, your information social security number your call logs your life, your life, location or anything on you. If I say hey, I need to find out for Laura Shane telephone number, and they'll give me telephone number will give me a call loss to give you. An everything comes through telephone numbers of numbers unique, and then if I say. Say Hey. I need to take the phone number 'cause I need so they will just prophet abuse him that I control, and I need to pay them few hundred dollars now. Your formula not work anymore because I had control of Sim card, so then I use that telephone number to get into a g mail, facebook and twitter, so if you go on twitter, new likely rescinded to email our number. If it's telephone number you've got. Someone's adopted very common technique deployed across US for a long time. So. The twitter hack twitter said that their employees had been socially engineered, and that's how these hackers gained control the systems. Are you saying that? Some twitter employees have their account. Sim swapped like how how does that you or Simspon tried? These people relate to the twitter Hack Greg? You wanted to ask me like how to get in touch with them so I'm trying to understand. You, that of analysis himself, so started going into the industry into this form than trying to see how they operate and to Dodd funny, so which will provide the made acadia that probably that cannot be Simpson's. That's what we did an offer that. VINCI START GETTING customers. Have you would actually getting a lot of attempts to do so? You would getting Dempsey pretty much every week that someone prior to himself or customer, trying to like hack into our system and mend the failed. I got in contact David Mayhew call, they would email method you and they will do all kinds of attacks. You know they'll try to let pen to pen tests. The everything did and obviously in one of the cases restocked immunity stopping messing around it right I know what you're up to. And after I got in touch with him to signal and author that the lake. Not I won't say that become a friend, but I told them why you're doing this. Thank you know you should not do this multiple hackers and they said okay. If you don't have anything to do pretty much, does it okay? Why don't you get a job? He said job, and then they start feeding the all information to proved at. Legit than a lot of information and how I was getting information from a lot of talk of the vote. And when it all this happened that you got in touch with him and had it happened late four five months ago. Okay They were diverging to me not just for this hot, but for other purposes to ride like a kid discount. Lot of databases beach everyday, so they wanted to see that a hey. If I'm interesting in the database, just wanted to work pretty much. is not money. It's also about ego that they wanNA prove something that they would do something so. So Mike Context for not hacking, but they'll be into the songs that they had access to. That follows A. Up I didn't want to. Excessive today were passing me. Hey, today. This is for sale to do sports on tomorrow. This person's so on the deal stood attack. I got a message that will be fun today, and when this message I thought he'd be like a distributor barks. Like scam scams, and but after why? That's all the kind. We got attacked ten. Finance Accounting Noble at depth one time. I taught that it's just a third party API like you know you have like you know where your schedule. The in everything I thought that may be compromised, and that's how they got author. Riley said No. We have everything. A screen chart I tweeted screen shot, and after that is blue. Well and so, who are these people? who were the people involved in the actual twitter hack? The difficult to identity like frankly I don't know I can speculate, but obviously because someone security and privacy I don't want to speculate but I can tell you wanting like college. Kids are maybe like someone between eight, eighty, twenty, one, twenty, two, and they are video gamers. They'd metaphor armed, and they found fascinating for them. Dislike a game like you go into video game on you killing you do stuff for them. It's like that. They, probably living in some way or radio patterns right now in basement. Who does not even know anything? and. They just do it for fun. Obviously, money's there, too, but most of fun for them is just a today. And so originally. The way you got in touch with them was they were targeting these different cell phone accounts, and what does motivation and taking over the different cell phone accounts so for account you can actually to when people take account, they can actually destroy you financially emotionally ended up recently, though by financial I can say they can get into your county bank accounts ticket by Tiptoe through that they can buy a lot of levels of securities financially they can do. obviously going to facebook in an email to, and then they donor all information from your facebook, and then they start blackmailing you that. Hey, likely when a lot you have done this like you know you have this. And you have to pay me this information out there and a lot of people would have to pay them the money because they don't pay the money. They looted operation right so and then third party. They just become Parson Mike is the word processing me. blender used to take my county new. They cannot get anything, but they wanted to talk to me. Just fun for them like people. Some people are sick. Like how did they pick you out of all the different people that they could torture also the league, if not just me like everyday hundreds of people to get them soft, though I'm just one of them on average, every second medical become victim of since up, not himself but cybercrimes so. But I had the impression that this was primarily targeting crypto currency people, but you're saying it's any bundled nor I think eighty percent of people who was himself to an entrepreneur L.! And the new in the cases of those people is it like personal vendettas that they're trying to? You can make more money by a hacking Lord cell than anything else you know. is one thing but Lloyd is like one number one target Loyd and has professionals league doctor medical doctor then. In Lord other number one targets in suffers, and what is the motivation for targeting lawyers Don. Money don't happen. How do they monetize that Yeah, so I tell you doctors, basically busy less tech, savvy and rich. It's that easy to find out any doctor information. You can find out who the best doctor in the city and you consume. Stop Him. And once you get into that account, you can transfer money between accounts who can be that people have been? Going into the count, Simpson calling the bank making via transfer, and then just checking accounts. That's pretty common. For for doctors to clinics have a lot of money. If you'RE GONNA clinic, instead he did even like five hundred hundred million dollar distorted the front because Alaska. Election for them. Okay, so let's go back to the twitter hack. They were some names that were identified of people who are involved these names. In The New York Times article that quoted you as a source one was kirk. There were some other people ll and ever so anxious. Who were these people? And how did they know each other? So they don't. Know the Best Birdie. They just hang out on rooms like chatting channels lake similar people on developed talked with you. The pirates channels. We had people a go if they WANNA have information to the document industry for finding information. If I want someone associated Gordon dissipates on one. Don't get call for these people trade information. And you asked about like a leg. Imagine your lawyer and you are fighting for my open kiss. We begin go to the website by that long since he will. They are who they're talking to the day can. Make some delays on them. That's one thing but other than that. These people are just a game as they would play like you know different video games and kick the die, who was basically a source of the rate industry rock says they'll be extra agents, and they are in room for longtime and David. Obviously you want you want something you don't trust the new guy. The new guy who is basically the main culprit punching the entity because multiple reasons, but the main guidance, the just which had A. Reputation. If you say you want a username of Laura at Laura, Shannon inactive. You may not trust kick, so you can do this. Middle Diane Tell Them Hey, can you hold the money for because you have a good relation? Because like Ebid forums generally have a petition systems. You know so then you ve into this guy like you know every inch it He went to care. Concur depended he the credit employees but I. Don't think he was employees. And, then he gave him the concert start building. So this is just a middleman. He was just broken deals. You tell them what you want. He was just keep his car and transfer the money. The is completed that fall. And so so kirk was was saying that he was a twitter employees, but as you said, you don't think that he was, and he was essentially selling valuable twitter accounts, and if people didn't trust, Kirk, they would use ever so anxious as their middleman to get the different twitter handles that they wanted. Is that what happened? That's correct. Good Gig, only unharmed on in July of. July it was very recently. that. He actually came so obviously not trust someone admit. That soon. July seventh in the New York Times article are. Limited okay, but all right so but ever so anxious. How to longer reputation and. And that was who people are transacting with. And so then. How did BITCOIN come into this? All. On these things happen through Bitcoins, so the way it started was they were selling. This twitter handles four bitcoin and then later. How did the scam change? So I. Personally is what I personally think. That kid was in touch with the employees who was giving these accounts. For a few thousand dollars. And then. Either bribed him. Architects. Social Engineering Him. Legs because like hey can do. This is my. This is purely my speculation that you're working for so long. He warned the trust. Any may have said Hey, can you log in forbid I wanNA see how it looks like something that he made it something so the guy is pasta on. Hey, just do it, but don't do anything crazy. You Know Butt kicked. Decide Okay, man I can just go on or can also go online with I can do it I can. Can also go on like you know. All those accounts crazy. That's what I okay, but you're just speculating. You don't have any proof that or or do you know what? I don't have any proof of that I don't approve. Have critic probably do it? And Kirk? Is probably a guy called coup, which is on a farm for a long time, so he speculated that he someone that was in the industry for wide, but not. Approved that. Kicked it, but from all the action than everything it all points to cook. Irene so in a moment we're gonNA. Talk a little bit more about what happened. Exactly I, in sight, twitter and scam, but First a quick word from the sponsors who make this show possible. How much in fees are you paying?

Back to my conversation with his Heeb Awan. So, we don't know exactly how. Kirk got into twitter's internal systems. However Once. He or she did then what'd he do or or she do with their power? So. Kirk than they went to buy I think. Start with by notes I'm coin base. And the see your finance and he made it account Egypt first of all. What did it was did with other? Account. Okay, which means when you log in, it asks you to do a second type of security, which is hopefully. If you're in the crypto space, you have used something like Hugo, authenticate or key, and you're not using text message based second factor authentication. Where they sent a code your phone because otherwise if he gets swaps than than having no. Buyer so. Removed that and then keep going good thing. They added wall a secondary second. You know Autodata so now. I'll give example like you have my username seep, so they moved to a FE, and they're also removed. Jane, Email. And then they. Did possible reset. So the new email guard, the chain deposited garden the account. and. tweeted whatever they wanted. Well, and what were they tweeting? So, they were tweeting that you know. About Co. Ed Nineteen I believe like you know because of Covid, we like helping people. I don't remember the wording. Health Has Something and they said Back. And this is video any comments in YouTube. Actually they were so good that frankly sometime I get like you know Oh my God like the able to make it like a secondary thing. That's real you know and like, but this happens pretty commonly, and and it's happening for almost two years now i. It, really is the kind of thing where people think it's real I honestly. Had created a question for you, which is who are the people who are savvy enough to own bitcoin and know how to send it, but not savvy enough to spot. What to me seems like an obvious scam. Actually went on the Internet and are tweeted out this thing same thing I said like who are those people who can have sophisticated enough to buy Bitcoin, but knowledge to. Send. Bitcoin but I think leap Dick's everything. Like I agree people think okay. Let's give it a chance. You know it's like a lottery ticket. You know people may be, but they think what if this is true and other than that. If you like an must happening there, actually flaunted, be efforts on twitter. All the time with people are donating money on twitter, but they don't ask for anything they say hey, can you give me your Alfred Egland who this every day, so he will dollars to off fifty dollars for every person everyday. You'll say. Retreat this. I'll give you this money. So this happens right now and obviously As hit audible, read like you know when viewed come in people, people forget everything that you know. We have so many Ponzi scheme like so many scattered that happened that exist today could if I come to unity Laura investment scheme, which is a pretty good you know. He hit all the MACHIDA. But it only gives you five percent. You may not listen to that. Say Hey, Lord the Child who may tennis money tomorrow. You may skip everything. Cocaine is thousand and ten dollars tomorrow. Okay I'll take the risk from doing that. Hopefully I'm sure my listeners are savvy enough to know if it sounds too good to be true. But people do that I. Think I have estimated that around like maybe I. Just in this journal given us cam like. He put a lot of tens of millions of dollars and well not last week, but no, not over time overtime. Yeah, yeah, we'll be sending money, so there are enough food. I guess yeah over I mean for last week. The hackers did net about a little over thirteen bitcoin, which was about one hundred twenty thousand dollars, although analysts said that about twenty, thousand of it seems to have come from a suspicious address that they actually think controlled by the hackers to kind of make it look like this was legit and people were actually sending money. But then also by the way they could have netted more. However, Cuevas said that it did prevent more than one thousand customers from sending about two hundred and eighty thousand dollars worth of Bitcoin to the twitter hackers so oriented, so let's talk a little bit also about just what happened in twitter which was? Twitter blog posts. Hackers a targeted. Thirty accounts for forty five of those they reset the password and sent tweets from those accounts for eight of them. They actually downloaded that counts data, and then for thirty sixty legitimate direct message inbox, including one elected official from the Netherlands, and it was who. What do you think they could do with such information? I think it's A. Black, man that I've been talking to you about what happened with sin sopping. Let's think about it if you have first all that fool Phoolan that why didn't put? It wasn't like planned. I don't believe it was just like in the move in the heat of happened. BANDAIDS slaves. They clearly guy who just got drunken pretty might do everything but I think if you have access to like anyone, social media, proper social media like I have been I've received. Messages. And I but I don't believe that I think we have forged around. Believe the electoral, so, but if you have someone should media that maybe confidential information that can be misused by Stacey when leg if you do about it on dedic messages, a you know that's not confident that even with the journalist visceral broads. You know so I. Don't know who the information was. What fast, but that's video very very concerning and I believe this may happen on facebook or other social media from his. Because to same. Attack Factor. Yeah I definitely think that this is. One of those cases where it makes you want to just use encrypted social messaging APPS. Such as like signal or something, maybe what's up? So, let's just also talk a little bit about what we said before about how the hackers were able to remove two factor authentication on these accounts. Well, actually what they did I was. They changed the email address. And then the chain Laras Oh, actually bid on a there was A. There was an email. There was a blog post by somebody who had the at six twitter account, and they said they believed that the hackers change the address, but that when that happened, it did not send a notification to the original email address, but not I don't know if this person was surmising, you know six hundred interest in history, those belong to a hacker. Their the community of Hackers Gobi Twenty six hundred. That's like a court for hackers right. Not a quarterback, just like community for hackers and you were the hacker who ended up homeless anywhere. They will do attack into I think he would to. And he went into multiple you as homeless, but he was a hacker. And oxygen community belong to sixty name. Is this secretly off? I believe his name. And, but yes, but I think the first drift was removed and then. moved. To the letter. Control of it now thought it was the reverse, but either way. In Like for any of us who are in the crypto space who have been? Keeping up with our security and using things like Google. or UB and avoiding. Text message based to a or or any kind of to a based on our phone number. What? Can we take away from this like? Is there any advice that you have for Crypto? People on how they can protect themselves if the services that we use have loopholes like this. Let's not that'll be biased in obviously you know. Will. Finding here, but that's what we do, right. We work, but a lot. Actually I am surprised at how many a compromise them security argue out stocking some customer yesterday and they do You know an extra seat is probably the most I can tell you I know. We are making like a faces, but at same part exit. She's most prominent used offer manager for probably ninety ninety nine percent of the word. What would you recommend instead? Use a password manager, anything manager pretty much everything in the top five six. It stood, you know. Don't cheat on family plan. out on like those like a caveman. This company go with a better company. Even if you don't go the final leg, that's fine at least hell better company like Dourthouse I'm plan because no fan mace. You make you very vulnerable to now you're putting your own life on risk, but everyone who is in the time is. You know and the third party. Don't give out your telephone. Number molasses everywhere. You know like. Don't go to like you. Know have different email address if you want to. And you let you. At Google. Authentic get off your. There's something at one time I have statistics, said ninety five percent of people who are like major changes. Do not have to a fait. Sms I'm talking more to a and I think ninety nine percent of those are what you estimates to say. The people who've been additives Everyday I have started I deal with at least two or three people who get up everyday and came and we had some of the to affair, and I can get into that lot of people into the spark that they were not believe enough not to change it. please. Don't please don't be those people, but I can tell you like I've spent people and I said do this. Man How much time did it like five minutes six league. Logistics you Donald and APP, you know. have to familiar face. You know if you are very cautious, taken for a number, but I can tell you that Khomeini would make this mistake. Ordering will end and it you know, and in the end I did lose industry learn. That's was part. There was still use the same SMS to a fait. The dating did not happen to them. Again happened again. Because if it happens to once, you become more, you know your motorcycle getting out again. If they have found something and something, they just do for fun, and and you know what I because obviously I'm. Biased in a way that the. Customer. Time I've been a victim four times a feed Logar they can. What would you do? Please please please setup. SMS elected more music episodes into gear and please get family plan these I. Know You're saving their ten twenty dollars per months, but in the end you know if you call it a, it's like insurance. You can live without insurance to. But like you know. The one day you need insurance when you need it.

"Thank you for joining me today? How are you doing? Great good good, so tell me about. What is all girls? Everything ultimate frisbee about. Why do you guys do? We are a leadership program and we have been brought together through ultimate Frisbee. That's how we use the together. We play Frisbee there, but we also learned there. Yeah, age up is not only really about like social justice. Education I feel like the people who work for Asia or that are in the age of community invest in the young people of Color in the key in the South Seattle community, and is really rooted around ultimate Frisbee, but we're also all have like a connected passion for social justice, wanting to make a change. In providing for our community, ultimate Frisbee, amusing to be honest with you, you know when I hear ultimate Frisbee. I don't think social justice education. A matter of fact with a lot of sports I don't think social justice says a case. I know that there's athletes who will take a stand and say something, but you know I don't i. don't naturally think ultimate Frisbee and social justice education. So how do those two combine for a job? Well I think when you think of most forts you're not. That's social justice as narrow really the first thing that comes to mind I'm pretty sure like no one ever combines like anything of the sorts of sports. But with ultimate Frisbee, since it's kind of a new sport, it's kind of like there's room to test around in like. Build new kind of community I think and that's kind of what happened the South End. There is like coaches all around the south Seattle that kind of came together to build. What age of is like Sam? Terry and Hannah Kawhi at least uneven. It came from it being such a tight knit community with those people with those players that they. They felt safe to talk about those types of topics like racism sexism, and so it started with a small group of people I think it was like tennis people and they had their like initial program of coming together and talking about social justice, and it kind of evolved into something more where everybody was willing to learn and grow together also play Frisbee together. Yeah, right? Hey, we're we're. We're here to have fun and play Frisbee than these other bigger issues that. Are Impacting us, or we care about if I'm understanding you correctly and you guys. The folks who started this felt comfortable enough with each other to be able to have this dialogue. And how how long ago when did this start? Two thousand nine at. It's even late, two, thousand, nine or early twenty ten, because we're GONNA have our ten year like Oh, yeah, two thousand nine. Yeah, doesn't you about the have your ten year anniversary? Okay? Amy was mentioning his early before we started recording that. There's there's different program elements that you guys have within eight up. What are those programs in? Can you describe them a little bit for me? We have a girls program that happens. December January, and then right after that ends the boys, program starts because we use Jefferson, community center. And will have an office upstairs, and then we use the big room in the middle, so we have to have the different programs right after each other, so then like we don't meet other programs different from you. Have your girls programming your voice program other than the gender? What's the difference in having to rather than having a combined group? I think the only difference is the ideas that we would come up with so last year. I was a girls program intern. That program was mostly about mental health for. That whole program year. And then. My other intern. Together Dion we came up with a different workshop at the end. So you have maybe different focuses. Do they come up naturally from what the group is asking for kind of what they're all talking about or do you guys have a curriculum for lack of a better word were year directing? You know what each group is is focusing during that timeframe. It used to be like. Every week was a different topic like went to his into sexism, but then we felt like one day is not enough to cover that topic. Then along the program years we would talk together and be like Oh. Should we just do one? So then? We can actually cover it, and so people can learn from. It were from now on. We're doing one topic or each year,
"tennis" Discussed on The Tennis Podcast
"Rule that never JOVIC had preemptively opposed, which was a restriction of one entourage member per player. They've said thought they will a reserve one extra room per plant, but they will. need the play will be paid for. In terms of accommodation and expenses, but they will have the right to one additional room which will be? The financial responsibility of the player, but the the kind of unwritten small is. You can bring extra people. If you want to prevent you from doing, we just don't. We just laying on. The facilities to to make that easily actually made the decision yet about whether they can bring more than one person on the site. There's still working that out. They've clearly they've had some. is his personal chef is waiting by the phone to here? Yeah I mean look. Even. Lopez was asked about this on this media coal. He's he again. He was trying to be very very respectful to to plas- Light Novak and many others, and he said look. If players don't want to come, I've really respect that I understand that I said for me the the entourage issue. It is a sacrifice, but it is a small. Small sacrifice in my opinion, but it's up to them if they don't want to do it I understand it, but we've. We can't not have the tournament because of that and and What I, what I sensed, was he? He also said. We've also got to understand that. The still two months to go yet and they. The USDA have made us feel that. Things may well be better by then, and they may be able to. Do More for them by that time. I suppose it's also possible that it could go. The other way and things could get worse in the next two months. We don't. We don't really know well I I mean look the thing main well, not happen yet. Yeah, I think we all need to bear that in mind. These off plans and they have said that the event is going ahead. The governor has said it can go ahead, but that's under current conditions. Who knows whether a second wave might have happened by then that just Indian well style. MAKES SOMEBODY GO! No, that's not happening and I certainly think that that's even more of a a thing to bear in mind with the. Later dates on the provisional. Spin announced because in in in Katherine speaks beyond scientific and medical brief news that there is no. Definitive data on on covid and the way it's impacted by temperature traditionally viruses all. Less contagious in in warm weather, so it's likely that the current trends that we're saying. Nathan show is likely the current trends were saying all impacted by. The weather in the Northern Hemisphere, and as things do start to get. Get Cooler into the autumn, which is when. Is is pretty deep into the ultimate. She really that the the French Open is scheduled to happen. Could become effective, but Yeah, we should probably deviate before I speak even more beyond my scientific brief, but it's obsolete, worth worth bearing in mind before we. Before, we get too carried away now. Key getting ready carried away of. Well we'RE GONNA. Say before we book flights well. Nobody influenced because the media or not allowed in They have said that some broadcast partners will be allowed to go i. don't exactly know what that means, but the media were told on this goal. They won't be a credentialed for the tournaments side. which is no great surprise? CUSIP new to them yeah. And Lake. It's there has been I mean preemptively. There was a lot of dissent from from players particularly on the ATP, so. I had a few a few days. Straight Voices Tayside a lot of ATP. Players have been. Quite outspoken about the feelings about the US Open going ahead and subsequent to the announcement that his. Yeah nothing is changed this today. sort of a few hours day also off to the announcement. That was. Opposed by CAB Dubrovsky. VICI player. M mostly in doubles. Very Con- considered. Post. Headline my personal thoughts on the US Open meeting forward which I mean, the there are plenty of players who have said. Plenty of things and made plenty of arguments about. Why they're opposed to it happening, but I think her. Her Post probably up. All covers most of them. Certainly extremely eloquent eloquent express while summarize the the point that she's made. To give you a view of. If what and why? The the players are are opposing this decision. She says with respect while I'm appreciative that the US Open put forth big efforts to operate I have many concerns. Here is my perspective and. It's bullet pointed. She says when the US Open presented. That planet felt like being sold on an idea telling us that testing is over ninety percent accurate. We know it's around seventy percent. Will I mean that's. I. Mean we hear Roussel's things about testing anyway, but that's. What she says she says that gives the impression that health and safety players are not the priority. In reality, most decisions at already been made they play feedback rose wasn't really taken into consideration. She said it's impossible to control and enforce a bubble situation. Where plays any move in the hotel to the venue and back? And we don't know who the he plays. We'll come into contact within these that don't obey per everyone else in the tournament. At risk, she says at least half of players and not comfortable traveling to the US. I. Don't, she doesn't give any. Sort of specific evidence that presumed she in contact with other players but I you know I. Don't know how how. Dot claim can be backed up, but anyway that's what she says. She says at least half. Looks plays disappointed with no qualifying. They mixed and half doubles draw, not having qualifying into smaller doubles during creases, the lack of parity in tennis don't want to disappoint. Disproportionately moves the needle further creating a big gap between those at the top, and those in need, the income, an opportunity for growth. She says the beauty of Islam is the story of the qualify. He battled three tough matches to earn a spot in the main during the upset. This story will not. They see this is US Open's at the beach of slam is mental fortitude and the skillet takes in six doubles matches. The beach of Islam is having the opportunity to play. Mixed doubles a unique aspect of tennis. There's IT concerned with the exhaustive nasal testing. She says it would not be occasional, but multiple times a week is an uncomfortable test that hasn't proven accurate and to be subject to it. That often is a source of anxiety for players. And she says the consequences of testing positive onsite means an immediate withdrawal. No matter what round you're in and staying in a hotel room until you test negative even without symptoms, this could menial isolated for weeks on end unable to play further events. Or even go home. She says I wish. We could use this high eighties to explore new designs of how where we played tennis like some real out of the books thinking..

It's still got fourteen shows with the past. Garnsey from Wimbledon as things stand at the moment and barring barring. Ya Cataclysmic Star events.

More podcasts in the twenty twenty David has the biggest grin on his face. It's definitely the silver lining that I can find Five slams. Yeah, we are. Explained probably explain why. Let's chase of the news because we've actually got. Live actual tennis news to to hit you with. Today today well, actually, it was more yesterday, wasn't it? Because the US Open and I mean it's been a not brilliantly kept secret right it was. It was leaked to the New York Times. It's been it's been all but confirmed for for a few days right? Yeah, it was clearly coming. Decision had been made an frankly even if you go back to late last week, and the all the plans being talked about by the New York Times and John Wertheim has been writing the story as well for sports illustrated, and then we did. We did a conference call. Would Feliciano Lopez with a? Dozen of the British journalist, because this is of course, fever tree championships week should have been the Queen's Club where Lopez won both singles and doubles titles last year, so he was talking to them a little bit about that, but he also really gave chapter and verse about the player meeting they had last week the. Zoom call now we're all we've all suddenly discovered. What zoom is over the last three months? This video conferencing ten. Days David Law I've done a lot of. but on this particular eighty, a planned meeting one they had four hundred players on, and this was the USDA and the the tools tending the players what the plan was to try to make the US Open plant. This is on the ATP side I leave. It turns out none of Novak. Djokovic handed out Roger Federer were on this call, but anyway the had four hundred people on it. And Lopez gave us chapter and verse on on this This media conference about what was said, and the lengths that they were going to to, and also that he was assured he was absolutely sure that it was going to go ahead. The US Open is going to happen. He said he also said it should happen. In my view, it's time the tennis to get rolling because. Bear in mind. He's not just tennis player these days He's a tournament director. He is going to be. Fronting one of the events that will take place in the remaining months of the tennis calendar. That's Madrid. He's the tournament director there, but he had a pretty stark message for the players in that call that we are going to have to accept less prize money. We're going to have to get used to that. We're GONNA have to basically stop being so precious what he was saying and understand be realistic about. The year we're in the climate. We're in the situation we're in and. If we want a going concern of a sport to play for for the future, we need to do something about it because otherwise. The whole system is under threat. The ATP the WTI The slams. Even and that's that's what this is all about primarily for the United States Tennis Association, they do not have. Pandemic Insurance to cover them the way that Wimbledon Do, and they also have according to The New York Times, seventy million dollars at stake from ESPN alone with the staging of the tournament, so it didn't go ahead. They would not be getting that seventeen million so. As you say we then came into this week. And yesterday we were told by under Karma the governor of New York that the event was going to go ahead. He was gonNA. Pass it. He was comfortable that it was safe and he's basically said sports are back in business in New York, which has done a fantastic job by all accounts of. Suppressing the virus in recent weeks to get to this point, it seemed frankly absurd. Maybe six weeks ago that this could have been the case I think we all pretty much written off the US Open as a possibility and anyway yesterday. He said it's coming and I think. that. The United States Tennis Association on HOP TO BE HONEST. Than, they were expecting him to reveal that news yesterday, so they quickly rushed out a statement saying yes, the event is going to go ahead. We're delighted about it. We'll have a proper announcements in presentation tomorrow that happened today on a on a live call, which also featured Serena Williams coming on with video of her own to say she was going to be there so a big old deal, which was a surprise winner..

"We have a very different tennis podcast for you today because we wanted to pull back the curtain. Speak to some people involved in the game that we wouldn't normally get to hear from and find out. How the corona virus and the enforced delay the forced cancellation of so much of the tennis. Tour is having an effect on people involved in the game people that are ranked two hundred or three hundred in the world. People that are trying to run tennis tournaments people that are trying to run federations of national tennis countries like the UK. We've been speaking today to the chief executive of the LTA. We've been speaking to the world number two hundred eleven. Liam broady the world number three hundred seventy five on. The women's side is being putting together a petition to try to find a way to support players. That are struggling financially. We've had responses from the tours and Catherine wigger myself here to talk all about it and Catherine overnight. We've had the first words of the new Chairman Andrey Gardens e talking to a group of Italian media on a conference call which Simon Briggs has written up. That's quite interesting. And he's also Catherine given some information that he believes to be being talked about the moment that the US Open might end up being played indoors. Yeah. Today was a day when Simon didn't wake up to discover he'd been scrapes by Mike Dixon. Yeah weighty interesting story from from Simon Breaks on on a number number of levels. I'm going to talk about the responses from that. We've we've had all of them come in today at we've been pressing for for for word from the various bodies for awhile and we've had statements today from from all three And Gardens comments of seon an official statement form and they do come at the caveat that We End Simon all English speakers and the quite spoken in Italian But they're pretty interesting. Yeah he talks here about working on a four week. Play swing does Andrei got. Nc after the US Open which if that would have happened and for star needs the French Open that has already been moved. Wants to move back again because there's not really casually says yeah. I mean the French Open. We'd have to he. He talks about this plan to create a clay swing and talks about Madrid. Happening the week before the French Open. Say the week that currently looks like it would be in between the US and the French opens they are. I was led to believe by press releases this week that the Madrid open would be happening as planned in. May just as an east ports competition and talk about that later. We are not doing podcasts during the Madrid East Bullets Open Andy. Murray's planning fairly. Yeah I mean obviously a watch because my all take any entertainment I can get but yeah and then it sort of casually says obviously this would require the friendship into move back a week is if like yeah. The fringe obviously going to play ball. Despite the fact that there's been absolutely no indication thus far that the the French Open want to take a collaborative approach to to any of this Bassani logically. Of course it makes sense for there to be eclair swing and for for Craig Clay Court Grand Slam not to describe up out of nowhere to we go to another Grand Slam. Obviously that makes total sense. It's interesting that incestuous on a put cost just over a week ago about the the the rumblings of a possible. Us Open at Indian Wells. In December I think-i reports in the piece. Today that there is little it seems as though there is little appetite for that and the preference of of the powers that be would be for the US Open to be staged as currently planned behind closed doors behind lays doors is preferable to moved back and in a different time and location which I find very interesting. The kind of we now live in a world where best case scenario. I is that a grand slam is played behind closed doors. Extraordinary to think about that. We'll hear later on as well in the podcast from Stephen Farrell. It looks after all the events in Britain including Queens as to why they didn't decide to to play behind closed doors also in Simon's piece he he quotes and Dragon. Enzi talking about the impact the importance of the ATP finals in November. I think financially as as much as anything to the the criteria is if we can sit tight and have the chance styles the finals. That's good will survive. Would we survive two or three years definitely not the longer it takes to solve the the situation? The worst air conditioned become so. There's a lot at stake here isn't a and we're going to hear the financial implications for as I said Players for federations for tournaments. And even the which is pretty healthy organization you feel on. Many levels has a lot to think about. Yeah I mean it. It doesn't surprise me to hear how dependent. Atp Finances are on the tool finals. I was aware how significant a an event but the most significant event for the organization. I believe the same applies to to the W for their finals. I will surprise Twohig Cowden Z. Put it in these to be frank about that is he. Seems to have been in that conference call with Italian journalists Simon also reports would a relief and a boost It is for the ATP the ATP Cup got played because that I believe resulted and the ATP ten millions Auto Simon reports that earned them them ten million and provided it gets played again the start of next year which isn't a given the semi far away enough that it's it's reasonable to be optimistic about that being played That would presumably be another ten million ish for them to be able to bank loan Which feels pretty massive at the moment. But yes certainly the the finals I get the impression that they even. If there's any been the amount of tennis what would we say for six seven weeks a tennis eight weeks? I think those finals will happen the ATP Finals will happen even if we go into it with the topic that we've got at the moment he would that be in the world right now. We'll have to look that up because I mean that's a very good point. Obviously Novak Djokovic is just fine. Because he's managed to get but as things stand it's Novak Djokovic. Dominic Team Gilmore Fees Ref on the Dow not bad seinfeld under relief. Live Christine guarantee their Alexander's verve and Stephanus sits obas Roger Federer. Just missing out in ninth. So there's your list so that's the race to London rankings. Yeah rather than you would make. That would be just fine for me. Unexpected Christian Garin in packing area federal would be the first alternate. Can you imagine him going to to London as an alternate that's got a half? It's almost worth having it. Just so he the hitting which regret. Christine guarantees hitting. That's that's what I want to a so that's the top end of the game and those guys as difficult as this is for everybody in these circumstances and oversee for many people more than than those players who have no financial worries what about somebody that is ranked tat side the world's top two hundred. Liam broady is the current world number. Two hundred eleven. He has been as high as just outside. The top one fifty He is a British play. Who's county standard? His parents place. He was supposed to be in Barcelona preparing on clay right now. He told me. So what's he doing instead? Well I've been In the in the gym I've in my Made up outside Jim for the last two weeks. Just trying to get spy can really. I'm in a group chat with a few of the of the players. Third Lloyd Gospel Don Evans. In his coach Ma Kilson One of the Guys Nathan. Ruining Merola posting all times in all sessions in there. And it's quite good actually gives us a sense of responsibility to the rest of the groups. Do sessions and stuff you know so your effectively kind of making yourself compete with each other on various exercises to try to keep pushing yourself exactly. Yeah I mean it as you probably know is very took to push yourself when you're on your own and there's no uh fullbacks acquitting especially when you're doing a lot of hard runs and stuff like that whereas obviously now you don't feel comfortable stopping because. I know I'm going to get upset. You Rinse for it. If so what what can you do? I mean I. I don't know how big your your spaces I mean. Tell us tell us what your your backyard your converted. Backyard looks like how big is the spice Can you do in it yet? So obviously the LCI sent me What by can on a little bit of kids they did sir quite a few of the plays which is obviously a lifesaver for me. I was worried that you know I actually spoke to Alex Timana yesterday and Lloyd Harris is narrower than not allowed out the house and I just going stir crazy by the sounds that doing skipping and counselors they call and go through a runner or anything so that obviously was often we are a spoiled by which is great but you know managing to get outside and go for pretty long distance runs They kind of make you value a lot more as well. You know freedom of being able to go outside. Yeah I does it make you Miss Tennis. Yeah I mean to be honest if I take a day or two days often. It's an I miss it like like you can't believe That's been one of the biggest messages in in that group. Chat with Evan. Everyone is is how much everybody misses tennis already. Everyone's signed it Kinda. Give the left arm to be back on court again even not even compete in just hitting the ball obviously you. Can't you play tennis complex? Honest it's all I know some people might be able to. You know whether they've home call also obviously quite a few applies over here. Don't have that option. So you know we literally just. I've not picked rocket for two and a half three weeks now which is probably the longest since I was about ten years old. And I suppose I mean you Brad Gilbert I mean he in the states he hits against a wall every day and and lots of people talk about that but I mean you need a wall you need some spice you need a wall in some country flow spills play on the problem is is. I don't really have a wall big enough An all star of concrete flow. So you can get a true bounce so I mean there's literally nothing you can do with regards to the tennis. Which is why. I'm I'm kind of puzzle and just trying come out this this little block than I've been really not. That's my plan. I'm to be as good. A good physical shape is can be one of the challenges as well. Liam must be that. We don't know how long this is GonNa last. So that mindset. I we actually had done Evans on the show. I think three weeks ago when when Indian from India Wells and he was saying he he'd got plans to get on court and he was hoping to be able to go in and try to mark Hilton and he was going to go in Birmingham mark. Who'S COMING DOWN FROM NOTTINGHAM? And obviously that that has quickly gone by the wayside but so now we know what he's doing. He's he's in the group chat with you. You're trying and trying to fit as you can. But this is three weeks in. We've we've got no tennis until mid June mid July at the very earliest. So so how. Are you going to sustain this to be honest? I'm GONNA take a week a time of two weeks of good training. I'm just focused on this. We want to think about the future right now because otherwise I'll go up. Y'All probably I'll probably stop trying Some just going to focus on that. We got time. That'll be seen each we get to. The belt is another another week towards the Physical Shite Maybe towards the end of the lockdown. I might take a week off completely just arrested in you know. Hit the hopefully forty. Five weeks of training was planned before tournaments is hard. What does this mean Liam few financially because tennis players don't play tennis they calm and prize money now all of a sudden they're all the ways to earn money ought to be supported..

"From the camera and she was really out of focus. It just looks completely bizarre but yeah I mean nobody can. Nobody can get into the hospitals into the flats worldly people in Suffice Latian. All of that. We know the facts of it but actually viscerally feeling is is really really difficult. Isn't it So I'd love to hear about. It is as much as possible And we all trying. We are trying but it's It's hard to get people at the moment. Because this is a situation whereby the the the measures being taken involve is ally slating from one another in that that makes so many things so difficult and I think this whole situation is reinforced in my mind. Is that when we when we occasionally get messages from people telling us to stick to tennis when we you know doing slams? If some sort of controversy comes up maybe we maybe we do it on that more than more than the tennis in on certain days. Well I think this this whole crisis has just shown how tied up ten is's with the real world really whether it be social issues or climate issues or political issues while this is a massive health issue which is impacting tennis. And we're GONNA look at it through tennis perspective and it's so intertwined because you know I think it's a I think it's something going forward. Where when tennis does come back we will. We won't ever take it for granted. You know we will always keep it in mind with everything that's going on in the real world as tennis players have to in this in this situation And the other thing that struck me hearing matic sands talking and Dan Evans about how they just wanted to get home. We should section unusual feeling for a tennis player. I think as much as anything so used to being on the road. It happens all the time that they spend so little time at home. Tennis says in indeed they you know they have a whole team of people around them doing things for them to get to the top of the sport. You have to be quite selfishly with your time. Your effort Your focus on that team a bill to get them in the best shape possible. Get them to the top on the road fifty two weeks a year pretty much but now tennis plaza realizing that then not the center of attention in their families and they just WanNa get back home they just WanNa how when they can and that must be very confusing and different experience for the tennis as I touched on it with with both of them about the mental health elements of it. And I think it's the same for everybody who is forced to to isolate. Who's forced to stop what they're doing to what from. I am I from home for many years. But it's not everybody who who finds that easy and and look with very much the lucky ones in in so many respects we we understand the struggles that many people are going to have the next few months and if if you're one of them really my thoughts are with you. We want to provide a bit of entertainment as well as as well as information about tennis and conversations as we can. We're not GONNA stop. We're going to carry on. That's that's what we're doing right now. And that's what we intend to continue doing But in terms of the wider future as Dan said later on to me. There's just so much unknown right now. Nobody knows what's going to happen next. I really do feel for for the authorities involved in all sports. Right now Evans said he felt that the the had handled things well in communicating to the players. What was going on as best they could with such a changing scene. But we're next because we know we've got no international tennis until the end of April. The very earliest may the second on on the women's side it means such a lot for the business for all those tournaments for the tolls for all the TV deals for. Everybody works in the Sports. Who who frankly relies on it for their income. And Yeah I feel for all these people that are posting information. I saw one of our colleagues. In the photography World Ella Ling was was was decided to open up her entire library to try to sell images. Now she's got an incredible library of of images from fifteen years covering the sport but this is suddenly what she is faced with because she can no longer travel the world and supply imagery to two magazines and publications and websites. That might want to buy them. So everybody's got to try to find another way of going about an living or at least bridging the gap until they can get back out there again but for the players this is. They don't have an offseason normally. That's very long and suddenly they could be faced with with how long it could. It could be months. It's it's GonNa be a very interesting process for them to to actually become tennis plas- again I would imagine whenever it happens. Yes it's the proper and his off season we've all been cooling for I e you wish the is that. Is that the message the learning to be done here? Who is GONNA learn the hard way? Football is one of the mid season. Break Yeah Yeah I mean. It's really difficult isn't it? Because the moment we have this kind of We have this known six week periods definitive six week period of night night tennis. We're all kind of reluctant to really talk about it. Defensively in those terms because we all fear and possibly even suspect that it will end up being being longer than that but let's just for a moment thought experiment wise say it is a a six week break and come the stars of May Madrid week tennis happening again. Whether it's behind closed doors or not. Let's say that the the facts we have the as we have them at the moment bear out and the Tennessee's in carries on started me and they've had this six week break. It makes things very interesting extremely interesting in terms of who comes out of the blocks and who I mean we may. We may get the most when they eventually do start playing again. We may get the most incredible level of play. Yeah if everybody's suddenly fully fence and fresh Nichols have gone and opportunity to potentially work on the game in these six weeks which they don't really get over the off season It will help players. Who are currently you know they small group of players? Who are currently Ingrid? This is gonNA. This has gone to benefit if the more time to get back just thinking out loud. Someone like Kennedy Corey. He has this every season nomo season for him. Couple months out on the sideline Bianca and Rescue. We oversee talk about federal but finally and rescue base point where she's just fully fit. She was watching herself. Did you see that on? She did an instagram post where she was watching her match from the US Open. I think against Mertens and she just put the bottom. Some text about this is the closest. She's getting to tennis for for a long. I love that. She's literally checking herself out. She's Lychee saying check. Ma'am everyone else's pasting these instagram videos about what they're doing time off in the time often she's it she's going. I'm checking myself out brilliant. He's way in kids do time he seemed trolled by Andy. Murray yours for his hat had had anything about Stanford ring to black media. Presence IS LULLS. I find really is Andy. Murray in any position. Talk about somebody else's hair boy. My my brother. My brother sent me a message saying question for the PODCAST. Sweepstake on how many bowling tennis players are GONNA come back with full heads of After this break e said we were looking for conversation to fix well but without a miracle skits and you show receive right Jamie Murray. He's been at home playing monopoly. Vows to master it over the coming weeks Andrea pick. Petkevich started a book club which sounds like a very good idea.

"How strong do you need to be to play tennis to play tennis or just to start tennis? Not that strong. Like my grandmother could go out and play tennis. Right. The entry level requirements for tennis as far as strengths and said a pretty low. But what about if you want to be a really good tennis player? Oh well for any player to get the most out in themselves. The actually need to have a really good basis strength. Yeah. That's the thing that we really wanted to focus on today. We've done some podcasts in, in recent times related to strength and conditioning. I think that for tennis strength is actually a very complex thing and often, we use strength as a blanket term, but we could probably split that up into several subcategories. That's right. A lot of the times when we talk about strength really talking about different aspects of human ladder system. We have the strength aspect stability, aspects explosiveness, and these things really more distinct in themselves than they all fall under the same umbrella term or even the same training for that matter. Yeah, absolutely. And I know that, that one of the things that start when we started out this conversation on strength. One of the things that we were asking will wear as this information available for tennis players. Yeah. I really started this. We started talking about this before we decided to record about it, just actually for own games..

"So if you magin that you go in and to the gym, and you do a one rep max dead lift, and you know, what that number is. Let's say it's four hundred pounds will how many can you do Jacob in a row. What you mean me? No, I'm saying like, let's say that you're one rip max deadlocked is four hundred pounds. How many in a row? Can you do man? I totally fell for that one. You can do one Glenn. Okay. Exactly. You can do. So. So what happens then if I drop the white to three hundred pounds. How many do now I forgot my chart, but you can do more than one. That's for sure. A lot more a lot more than one. Right. And so that's maybe another way to think about this. So if three hundred pounds is all I can do one time, and I go in and trying to three hundred pounds. Well, then I'll money gonna get one of them done. But if if my friend can do four hundred pounds is one wreck max, he's going to do a lot more on me at three hundred pounds and the same thing the tennis court like if I'm going to hit a backhand. And I am every swing just pushing my maximum I'm close to the power output in my swing close to all. I can handle that I'm going to get ta. Tired of hitting back at backhands very very quickly. Whereas if I have strengthened myself so that I can hit a very powerful back end and still be comfortably below my threshold. Hit a lot more balls before. I started get tired. Yeah. That's right. So most of us judge ourself based on like most of us. We we we make. I'm not sure what the right term is here. But our procedures are perceived ability of our own playing level is based on the best things that we can do. It's not based on. I watched ten matches of myself and took data on it. And then drew what the averages were. And that's how I make my perceived ability. Right. So is it bad idea for me to give golf example hereafter? We just went into into the car thing the swift on tiles done dead lifting. I think that go is Gulf is fine. Right. So there's not there's why not. Really good data on this that the PGA has gone where psychologically they figured out that gophers as a rule draw their own self perception, virtually based on the best round that they are capable of playing. Right. So you have a handicap in golf, and when people self rate, and they make their own handicap, they almost exclusively make it the best that they can possibly play. Instead of the thing that they do on average. Shaw. Right. And so that's a really easy concept. I think for us to look at in grasp it's harder to turn inwards. And look at ourselves and realize that's us. That's you. That's me. That's my my one guy on the tour, and my other guy and the other guy and the other guy and everybody else on the tour. Right, right. Like, it's not something that were excluded from you're not the one in a hundred probably an imagine it's much easier. I think in Gulf at least you do get a handicap you get to play lots of rounds and see what your range of scores is. And it should be hopefully to wide of range from one round to the next. But you actually get information on that. Whereas when you look at tennis players every single time you play the conditions of different. And you're also playing different opponents all the time. So you don't really have even as objective measures Gulf does of what your performance is actually like. And so in that case, I think it's even hotter to get an accurate perception of way, you're Bility's at. Yeah. I think that's exactly right. I mean, we don't have. Anything that's really like a candy cap. We do have the UT our system that starting to come into more use. But that's just reminds me now of these junior players that I talked to and their coaches in their parents as they're playing ITF's in trying to transition onto the tour like I can't tell you how many times I've heard like all my my.

"But it's not the top priority for everyone right for some people. That's just not the number one priority. Like if for instance, I think if you're working with Rafa. You know, going to the gym and getting physically stronger shouldn't be your number one priority. That's not going to win him the most matches. Right. He sent me. He's not suffering from strength deficiency. I think I think maybe there these this way to say this would be that. I can't ever think of a professional tennis player on the men's or women's sides that was too strong physically to play. Good tennis. But there certainly have been a lot of players who leave performance on the table by not being strong enough. Yeah. And I think that's exactly right. The issue is that we're leaving performance on the table. So I had a conversation with another one of the guys today. And really specifically we said look like this isn't about you having a problem, or this isn't even about just beating the guy that you lost to last time. This is a. About getting the absolute most out of yourself that you can and just to clarify for the people who are listening. This isn't going to be a podcast. We talk about professional plays for thirty minutes. Or now, this just helps give you some framework to understand that even professional players have strength officials. He's a lot of the time that are impact knit performance. And so one of the things that we're trying to do today is to help you answer that question for yourself is would getting stronger help you mo- matches. And so so maybe if you think this is a good time to do this Jacob we could talk about some of the questions that people could be asking themselves in order to answer that bigger question because I think it's that's not necessarily an easy thing for the average listener to to know the answer to. Yeah. Well, if you're open minded enough to just sit back and go away, and and if you just find that you just asked yourself. F- am I leaving a lot of performance on the table by not being stronger? If you just did that then I think there's a few places that you can start from. So this this has really become an issue for me over the last year because these guys made it really personal for me. I mean, you know, that I'm consulting for a few of the guys on the ATP right now. And so it just really hit home. Like, wow. I mean, I just thought this was something I struggled with when I was twenty five. I didn't think that this was something that to our veterans would still be struggling with when they're playing at you know, a world class level. So the most obvious place to start from me is just a ask yourself. Am I losing matches because I'm getting tired? Shaw because a lot of times people out as much because they getting tired. They get into a third set or professional ranks at the grand SAM's, a fifth set and they start losing foot speed. They start struggling to catch breath between points, they stopped making poor tactical decisions their quality of shot goes down. And these are all ways that getting tired would would make you lose matches. But I think most people hearing that question when say, well, if I'm just getting tired that means need to do more cardia, right? And the, you know, the first issue is that getting tired might not necessarily mean that your cardio is so bad, but it could just as likely be strength issue. Right. Maybe to draw a comparison. We might look at like a small hunt Aqa and those things can get great gas mileage and the dry forever. But if you make one thoat trailer, which straining at its limits the whole time, then you're that thing's gonna fall apart pretty quickly. Right. And the gas mileage goes down horribly and all the things that were beneficial about it aren't good because it's it's not really matched up to the task that set before it. And so, you know, you have to look more deeply in more closely at the style of tennis that you play the way that you're playing in particular in the matches that you're losing if you think you're losing because you're getting tired..

"Glen hill. Jacob mayer. Welcome to another episode of the technical tennis podcast. And today, we're going to talk about retain of says. Yeah. So we. Kind of working our way through a lot of different aspects of preparing to play competitive tennis matches. And we've even talked some about some of the strategy and mentality aside of competing during a match. We've talked a little bit about serving strategy. But we haven't really talked at all yet about return of sieve. And what we think about how we spend at Tom at a practice. Go. I know that we have mentioned this in a previous episode with those of you who didn't catch that. But we have addressed the fact that given the the the fact that every single point that you play in a match is going to start on your end with either assertive or retentive says that should be where you are spending a huge amount of time that you spend on the missing the should be investing a lot of your practice time in practicing the return of. Yes. I mean, you're trying to serve is gonna be depending on who you are either. The return with a servant cell are going to account for the single most the single highest sort of ratio of points in a mash in a mass that's going to be determined by lunch shot as a terrible way to say that. But maybe we could try and tackle that again. You wanna go whenever another shot at that? I don't have a better way to say it. I think maybe we could say like this that depending on your style of play or what your strengths out of the either the return or the return of serve is going to be the single biggest point of differentiation between who wins and loses the match for you would that be a- away. You might think about that. Yeah. I think that's that's pretty good. At least, you know. I'm just trying to get to the this. This very personal fact for me, right? When I was in my first five years of playing tennis. Like, we were practising all the shots or thought is practicing all the shots. And then sometime after playing tennis for five years starting to play tournaments and whatnot. I looked back and realized I've never practiced had a return serve. You know, my coaches just kind of said, well, you just returned kinda like that you stand back there and you hit back in. Then you go play. And were it was the worst part of my game by far and like that single shot cost me twenty percent of all the points played in a match routinely show show. I mean, it's it makes a huge difference. It's interesting when I think back to my own tennis journey and growing up in the top pros that were coming to preeminence in the game at that time and Agassi stood a pot because he was this first guy that I can really remember that focused on China said brought his game in a sense. And he was known for his retain of seven his aggressiveness on the return of serve. I mean, I think there's some people that still would consider him the greatest retainer in the history of this. I'm not sure that I would agree with that anymore. But certainly at the time he was the guy that I can remember that distinctive and known for his return to save and I chose. I was just gonna say to me that shows how much the focus has shifted in the sense because I didn't practice to say when I was young so much. It wasn't really something that coaches really focused on that much. Yeah. It's good to hear that. Because sometimes I just thought like that. I got the short end of the stick there. But the thing that really stands out to me about Andre is that he seemed to be one of those characters in history that marks. A significant change, but like a generational shift or an evolution in the game. Did I think before Andre we sort of thought like, yeah, you know, maybe you can attack the second serve maybe run around at you hit a forehand or or or something like that? But there wasn't anyone that stood out matching and match out where you were afraid to hit second serves to the guy because he was going to try and hurt you off of both sides. You know, now there's a lot of guys in the game like that..

"Use tennis to help teach responsibility and life lessons, right? Like, we try to make sure that the young players are thinking critically and trying to look to the future anticipate challenges that might come up and and mentally prepare themselves for how they're gonna handle those challenges, you know, gripping Iraq. It sounds like we'll obviously have to my rackets before you know, the match, but it sounds like the most like boring routine thing, but. Ask yourself, right? Like, are you really doing this with intention? And are you really doing it the way that you think you should be doing it? Yes. It's like showing up for your match and warming up, and then I'm going to regret right before I play, you know, there's just an element of now you're trying to acquit and maybe already sweaty. It's just too if it's -able just do it ahead of time. There's no no reason to leave stuff like that too low second. How about that? You got anything else to educ? Yeah. I mean, I've still got plenty of stuff. That's in my bag. Okay. Well, let's let's hear it. I have a little bag inside for soft tissue tools. So I travel with a peanut like a little stick. You might want to explain what checks talking about an actual physical peanut here. No, I tell you what the peanut, you know, like, the kind you eat now a peanut is to across balls that are taped together and shape of what would be an over sized peanut. And that's roll away so easily. Yeah. Yeah. You can use them to kind of hold onto tissue. So it's like having outside pair of hands. If you wanna work on some of your stuff. So part of match preparation is going to be preparing your body and part of that is going to be opening up some of yourself tissue, and and maybe working out some kinks and stuff and. You and I both know that that would require probably lots of podcasts. Yes. Let's today. Yeah. We're not. We're not into that. But the point is that there's definitely an internal bag dedicated to the things that I like to have for that preparation in all my players have that as well. Well, so we have. I have another internal bag that contains what I think of as my warm up a quick -ment, which is bands some care beers slings or runners or actually it's actually I use like a piece of climbing equipment. That's basically a loop that I can loop around things in order to use my bands in case. There's like a weird court construction wherever we are because we play on different courts all the time. Also have one of those gyroscopic forearm exercise Spinney tools to warm up the risks. And the form is that the nickname for the spin it'll. Yeah. Gyroscopic forms Benito the technical name for it. There's a couple of different competing different competing companies now. So I'm not giving shout out to anyone. One of the I mean for me, probably the most important thing is my hoodie. Always have I always have a hoodie in the bag. I don't know why. That's so important to me. But it is. And this is an example, kind of rough water bottles. You're you might have something that is coming to you or help set state view or the absence of which we call you anti-icty, if you have something like that again pack it ahead of time. And know without any doubt that you have that thing in your bag on that. You're ready to use it or no that is that. Yeah. It's like if there's like, a rain delay, or if the temperature changes or for at some place with the air conditioning, like really really intense inside. And it just don't really like being cold when I'm all sweaty. So it's. I guess it's upsetting for me. And it's funny because I mean, I know that it's not like it's not like these things are surprises to you. But the truth is like if I'm stuck in that environment. And I don't have the thing that makes them comfortable, then I'm not going to be the same. As if I do have the thing that makes me comfortable on settling. And then if you're on federal you probably not gonna place. Well..

"I'm wearing the clothes that I'm gonna play matching I wouldn't need to pack clothing in my tennis bag, and that's a fair question. But the reality is things go wrong and things always go, according to plan at so what what we want to do we pack for for tennis match is prepare for the reasonable unexpected events that might occur. So I'm not going to pack a snake bite kit in my tennis bag because the odds of me getting bitten by a snake in the middle of tennis match. I'd like to think pretty low that would not be reasonable thing to pack in there. But if we talk about clothing, Australian, well, I was gonna say, maybe he live in Arizona. But. Astray Leah to I guess, so if you think about the types of clothing items that you might pack in your bag a lot of people will pack an extra shut. And if it's sweaty, you know, it's very hot and humid out change shirts. Maybe at the end of the first set, and I think that's a great starting point. But if you think about that situation, I would say if you're looking at bashes resets matches that one you should always packed two extra shits at a minimum. Because maybe you want to change it at the end of every set. And if it goes three sets, you're going to need that extra shed anywhere. But maybe something unexpected happens. Like you spill water on your phone Gatorade on yourself. And over sudden. Now, you're shuts and stuff that you don't wanna be playing and what's playing be. You're gonna play without showed on a lot of places that will get you disqualified. So there's a reason to have one shirt beyond what you would expect to actually use your match in your bag right along the same lines, and Jake you can talk about this one extra socks. I usually bring lots of exercise. I actually go full. I don't know if you know this, but I go full two extra outfits. And usually I go. Like an out and one outfit would be two pairs of socks per outfit. So you're one pair socks, and you've three bucks in your bag. Nope. I'm wearing one pair, and I'll have four in my bag. Oh, okay. Yeah. Yeah. I, you know, it's it's one of those things where like if you get a blister, and you need to change things, or if you step in a puddle, or if it's you know, I played a lot of tennis in central Florida where it can just be oppressively, humid. If. If sloshing around and wet socks is going to be a problem for you. Then there's just no substitute for being able to change them. And on that note, people wet socks are going to be the primary suspect when it comes to blisters wet socks rubbing on your flash, which your socks get wet relatively quickly. If it's relatively hot where you're playing that's going to cause blisters. And typically, I'm going to assume that your shoes you somewhat decently. Is you're going to be playing a match in them. And so I would say that if you're going to get a blistering match, you've gotta look at your socks, first and foremost that if you are the type of it gets often, you should be changing socks at the end of every set not just shuts. Yeah. And the other thing that we deal with that. Actually, I have my guys on the tour which might be a little bit overkill for some people. But it's something I've been doing for a long time because of the environment's been playing is a second set of shoes because if you really really sweating through or if you're just kinda dripping down your legs than your shoes get too wet. And in the socks isn't gonna be good enough because I basically putting them into a pool. Absolutely. And so I if you are not in a situation where you're tennis bag is big enough to fit in all of this stuff or you are interested or you don't have the means to carry two tennis shoes because I get it. Choose can be pricey just keep this as a guideline and a way to get this conversation. Started with yourself about you know, how you pack your tennis bag before matches on the shoes front. One thing. I'm just gonna point out real quick to when it comes to being prepared. So people get a brand new pair of tennis shoes. And the first wear them is to play a match, and that's not a good idea..

"Everybody. My name's Glen hill. And I'm Jacob Mayer. Welcome to another technical tennis podcast. And today, we're gonna talk about something that on the surface might seem a little more mundane than some of the other topics that we discuss on the podcast, which is namely, how to pack your bag for tennis match tennis bag specifically. Yeah. I mean, this is really what is this really about me? Why are we going to dedicate a whole podcast to packing your tennis back? That's a good question. Jake. So there's a way in which we have to understand that nothing that we do exist vacuum. And so the way that we prepare for matches. He's going to impact the way that we play matches and inevitably packing. Your bag is a pot of your preparation for matches. Because if you go to compete, and you don't have everything that you need or things set up the way that you need them to be then that is going to not just impact your ability to do things because you don't have something. It's also going to impact your emotional state. I'm not sure how to talk about this. But I see it all the time where somebody gets flustered because they've forgotten something that they just feel like having on that day or some. Unexpected conditions come up, and they're just not prepared for and then they get uncomfortable. And then it becomes a little emotional like thorn in their side that almost gives them an excuse if things go poorly. Absolutely, absolutely. So I think you all can see this when you watch professional players plant because very rare that they will go out in the court and not have what they need. And when they do out in the court and have what they need the professionalize it. You're seeing on television have people that go and get it for them before their matches urva. But what you can see is people get very upset about a small thing. That happens, you know, dispute overlying call or some other incident allowed in the stands and next thing you NAR, they're still throwing a little bit of attention about fifteen muttering under that brass giving docks. The empire twenty thirty minutes later. They're still upset about this thing that happened because it it was emotionally upsetting and have carried that forward. And so for. Recreational players competitive players. You don't have people to run off in the middle of the match and get things for them. Not having something that you need can be one of those little spots that light a kind of a fire of on settlement and caused you to play distracted tennis. Yeah. I mean, can you imagine Rafa showing up to a match and not having his water bottles? Right. I mean, it's on it's absolutely unthinkable. It's comical when you like just imagine him doing little organization thing with all his water bottles. Like, what have you just didn't have them like? But I mean, literally he wouldn't start a match. He would just be like, no we have to. Yeah. Absolutely. In which I would even even happen in the first place. But so now that we've touched at least briefly on why it's important. Let's let's heat down to the nitty gritty of what sort of things should we pack and understand folks as you're listening in that your bag, and what you put in your tennis back may look a little bit different from. We're not going to give you a prescriptive list. We are certainly going to give suggestions and some ideas of things that may or may not be useful for us specifically. But certainly we can stop the prices of thinking a little bit more deeply about the kinds of things that you keep in your bag and the kinds of emergencies that you're prepared for. I wanna start with a recent story from the tour. Okay. First thing that I put in my bag. I learned from a young player that has just recently broke into the top fifty and another player was telling me about what a great job there. Coach has done with them. And I thought oh, man. Yeah. I mean, this guy's top fifty in the world. Now. Coach must be really good wonder what he's doing. You know, what the other player said do not? He's like man he's doing so. Well, now the guy shows up with his bag and like he even brings his shoes. Before he show to practice sometimes..
"tennis" Discussed on Tactical Tennis
"They everybody. My name is going hill. And I'm Jacob Mayer. Welcome to the technical tennis podcast, and it's a really international edition today. I'm recording from a bungalow and Costa Rica in between surfing's, Asians, I'm recording from somewhere in Greater London. A couple of miles from Roehampton the site of Wimbledon qualification tournament just a heads up to everybody. Jake's recently, become a first time father. So if he happens to start speaking incoherently or falls asleep in the middle of the podcast, probably because he's a little sleep-deprived. I'm gonna make laws of predictions. I think for the next couple of weeks, and then all of them that are wrong. I'm gonna completely blame on sleep deprivation. Well, we're not really going to be doing in today's episode because where we're gonna talk about excitement levels, and how they impact the way that you play tennis and probably if we're. Going to do that. We should start out by talking a little bit about what excitement levels are are. We referring to like when my newborn baby just starts screaming like for no particular reason. Well, that would be. Yeah. That would be a level of excitement level. Okay. So that is so so if we if we think about. People in their average stay. People generally normal normal people don't walk around in a state of excitement. Right. I mean, we're pretty calm. And if you think about like on a scale of one to ten like zero would be you asleep. I mean, you're you're you're in a very low excitement state when you're asleep or maybe like deep meditation and ten would be like, I am literally scared for my life. You know? Petrified or complete not a mind bending rage. Like an emotional excitement state. That's the absolute extreme you're talking about jumping full sweat like full flight or flight response. Like your body is as activated as possibly could be would be attend. Yes. Exactly. And obviously, we hopefully, I hope for your sake people that you very rarely hit attained because that's just not a great place to be generally speaking. But what we do is exist at various emotional states, excitement states throughout the day and in different circumstances. And most of the time when we when we have a change in our state, it's because of a reaction to an external stimulus in some form. And what happens when we play tennis matches is that we will typically go through a range of excitement states German tennis match, and this is one area where I think that most players don't really do a good job of managing their excitement state. And I think more importantly understanding at what excitement state they have their peak performance and how they can go about creating that desired excitement state for them to play their best tennis in a way that they have control over the process. Yeah. So I want to start this conversation off for me personally. Raising my hand and saying that despite studying this stuff even formally in graduate school. This is one of the things that I think I was most terrible at when I was competing. Like, yeah. It's it's really hot especially because nobody talks about it. It's really I think in on address area. And I think maybe just a little context on this really quickly. So maybe a people made that connection yet. I mean, imagine if you go out and try to play tennis and a state of complete and total rage, right? Where you're just so angry. You can't even form cohesive thought, and you probably not gonna play very well. Or the flip side of that is if you go out and play in a state of complete and total detachment and lassitude like where you're just hop asleep on the court, you're probably not going to play very well there..
