    Tennis is back; James Blake discusses the challenges

    Tennis is back; James Blake discusses the challenges

    Tennis is back. But there are still question marks about the sport’s short-term future.
    In the first half of this episode we discuss the return of the WTA Tour in Palermo and the mood surrounding the US Open before wrapping up the results from the various exhibition events. 
    Then, we hear from former World No.4 and current Miami Open tournament director James Blake (starting 43:26).
    He takes us through what happened during the week in March when Miami was cancelled and explains why he’s struggling to envisage the US Open going well.
    He also praises the way in which Naomi Osaka and Coco Gauff have used their platform for good during the last few months and declares why he thinks more unity between the WTA and ATP would benefit tennis.
    The Tennis Podcast is presented by Catherine Whitaker and David Law, and features Matt Roberts. It is produced weekly year-round, and daily during the Grand Slam tournaments. It is crowdfunded by listeners each December.

    Olympics Re-Lived: 2000 Sydney

    Olympics Re-Lived: 2000 Sydney

    The 2000 Sydney Olympics were a happier time. Steve Redgrave won his 5th gold for Great Britain and Cathy Freeman became a symbol of national reconciliation for Australia.
    In this episode, we look back on a tennis event which also delivered compelling storylines, including double gold for Venus Williams to cap an extraordinary summer and a 4th place finish for a young Roger Federer.
    We also hear from men’s singles gold medallist Yevgeny Kafelnikov (starting 23m 27s) about his epic final against Tommy Haas, his experiences in the village, why his gold medal has defined his legacy in Russia, and how he compares it to his Grand Slam titles.

    Gigi Fernandez (gold in doubles) - 11m 38s
    Lindsay Davenport (gold in singles) - 23m 17s

    Listener Qu's - Covid-19 and the future of tennis

    Listener Qu's - Covid-19 and the future of tennis

    We're back! And we're answering your questions, as selected by listeners Drew and David, who backed our crowdfunding Kickstarter so generously. Here are the questions:
    • Is it the players’ responsibility to do what’s safe for themselves, or is it the tournament’s responsibility to guarantee safety regarding covid-19? (4:30)
    • Is the Western & Southern Open too ‘intense’ for the first sanctioned event of the restarted ATP Tour? (10:30)
    • If we were players, would we be happy to travel to New York for the US Open? (15:30)
    • How fundamental is tennis’ scoring system to the DNA of the game? (27:00)
    • What do we think about the use of artificial crowd noise for behind-closed-doors matches? (32:28)
    • Will covid-19 hasten the progress of all electronic line calling, or will there be an emotional appeal to return to the norm when restrictions ease? (37:40)
    • Should Thiem prioritise the US Open or Roland Garros? (39:10)
    • Was talk of more ATP-WTA unity just a flash in the pan? (42:54)
    • Who should be the commissioner of tennis? (50:17)
    • How do we view Madison Keys’ potential to win Grand Slam titles? (53:25)
    • And will there be a flood of retirements following Tokyo 2021 or after the full regular season of tennis? (59:52)

    Yannick Noah Interview

    Yannick Noah Interview

    The 1983 French Open champion, Yannick Noah, is our guest this week.
    In an exclusive and extensive interview with David Law, Noah tells stories in his inimitable style about the influence Arthur Ashe had on his career, the time they played doubles together, the dream he had before the Roland Garros final, the words he exchanged with his father after beating Mats Wilander to win the title, why he could never crack Wimbledon, what it was like playing in the same era as legends like John McEnroe, Jimmy Connors and Ivan Lendl, and the emotions evoked by winning the Davis Cup.
    The Tennis Podcast is presented by Catherine Whitaker and David Law, and features Matt Roberts. It is produced weekly year-round, and daily during the Grand Slam tournaments. It is crowdfunded by listeners each December.

great content

I found this podcast about six months ago and I really enjoy hearing a knowledgeable conversation between clearly well-connected fans of a sport I love. Dear David, Dear Catherine, I know there is something rotten about complaining about free stuff but you do always ask for feedback: you both have really interesting things to say about the matches and the players so please just stick to that and cut out the playful faux-argument banter because it sounds somehow creepy and it makes Catherine sound snooty, which I am sure she is not.
