    Roland Garros Day 4 - Escape for Alcaraz; Give Raducanu time

    Roland Garros Day 4 - Escape for Alcaraz; Give Raducanu time

    Wednesday was the day this Roland Garros came alive, with Carlos Alcaraz and Alexander Zverev both being forced to save match point in their five-set victories, and the women’s draw losing Maria Sakkari, all in the space of a few hours. How come Alcaraz ended up having to save match point? And will this match make him more or less likely to win the tournament? Catherine, David and Matt also talk about Emma Raducanu's defeat and the coverage of it, how Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal are shaping up, and who might come through the wide open bottom half in the women's draw.

    Roland Garros Day 3 - Tsitsipas survives and Tsonga brings down the curtain

    Roland Garros Day 3 - Tsitsipas survives and Tsonga brings down the curtain

    Day three at Roland Garros belonged to Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. Catherine, David and Matt discuss how he briefly rolled back the years against Casper Ruud before the moving scenes of his injury and retirement ceremony. How will he be remembered in tennis? Elsewhere, why can’t Lorenzo Musetti win from two sets up? How much fun was Hugo Gaston vs Alex de Minaur? Are the night sessions at Roland Garros working? And how disappointing is it that most players' views on Wimbledon are entirely self-interested?

    Roland Garros Day 2 - Big names cruise; Krejcikova out; Naomi no to Wimbledon?

    Roland Garros Day 2 - Big names cruise; Krejcikova out; Naomi no to Wimbledon?

    On a wet day at Roland Garros, Rafael Nadal, Iga Swiatek and Novak Djokovic all cruised through their matches, while Naomi Osaka was beaten by Amanda Anisimova before saying that she might not play Wimbledon due to the lack of ranking points. Catherine, David and Matt talk through all of that, as well as comeback victories for Emma Raducanu and Bianca Andreescu, a round one exit for defending champion Barbora Krejcikova, the special Angelique Kerber scenes, and all of the player reaction to the Wimbledon-Tours stand off.

    Roland Garros Day 1 - Ons ousted; Thiem's troubles; Alcaraz - one down, six to go?

    Roland Garros Day 1 - Ons ousted; Thiem's troubles; Alcaraz - one down, six to go?

    So much for a leisurely Sunday start to Roland Garros. Catherine, David and Matt convene at the end of a day which saw Ons Jabeur upset by Magda Linette in the first match of the tournament on Court Philippe-Chatrier. What happened to Jabeur? What was the feeling like around the grounds when she lost? And will this defeat have lasting effects as she heads to Wimbledon? Elsewhere, we talk about unsurprising but sad defeats for Garbine Muguruza and Dominic Thiem, Felix Auger-Aliassime's fightback, a rusty performance but a routine win from Carlos Alcaraz, the way Coco Gauff's draw has opened up, David's first French Open experience, and an anti-climactic result for Alejandro Davidovich Fokina. Looking ahead to tomorrow, why is Naomi Osaka vs Amanda Anisimova scheduled on Lenglen at 11am?

    Wimbledon stripped of ranking points & Inside Roland Garros Media Day

    Wimbledon stripped of ranking points & Inside Roland Garros Media Day

    We begin by discussing the fact that the ATP, WTA and ITF have decided to strip Wimbledon of ranking points over its decision to ban Russian and Belarusian players. What are the main factors behind this decision? What other options were available to them? Will this lead to further stand offs between the tours and the Grand Slams? And why have the ATP and WTA not stripped tour events of ranking points too?
    We then switch to talking about the headlines from an excellent media day at Roland Garros, which Catherine, David and Matt all attended. Perhaps the highlight was the way in which the leading WTA players - Naomi Osaka, Iga Swiatek, Ons Jabeur and Paula Badosa - all opened up, revealing so much about how they're feeling. On the men's side, Novak Djokovic's game face and Rafael Nadal's humour got our attention.

    Roland Garros - The draws!

    Roland Garros - The draws!

    We made it to Paris! Despite Eurostar’s best efforts to thwart our journey, Catherine, David and Matt are on site all together at a Grand Slam for the first time since January 2020, and we’re very excited about that. 
    After detailing our journey, we get stuck into the draws. How do we feel about Djokovic, Alcaraz and Nadal all being in the same half? Who will capitalise in the other half? Who could stand in Iga Swiatek’s way? And who will emerge from the bottom half headlined by Naomi Osaka vs Amanda Anisimova?

Excellent

Ash Barty got me interested in tennis, the Tennis podcast made me obsessed with it. Absolutely the the best sports podcast I listen to.

Rocket54 ,

Amateurs

If you want to listen to three people who have very little understanding of tennis, who are more interested in the “stories” than the sport and who constantly push their personal politically correct agenda, this is the podcast for you!

Wazzah25 ,

Smart, funny and emotional

This is my favourite sports podcast. It doubles the enjoyment I get from following the Australian Open.
