    The Indian Wells Catch-Up: Draws Preview - Medvedev leads new charge in Big 3 absence; Raducanu's rough + ready pathway; Will fans remember Tsitsipas toilet tactics?; Ruud ready to up the stakes; Jabeur & Sakkari upset queens; Finals Predictions

    In the latest episode of The Passing Shot, the tennis podcast by fans, Joel and Kim preview the return of Tennis Paradise aka Indian Wells which is back after a 2+ years hiatus.

    With US Open Champion Emma Raducanu on court for the first time since her Slam win, all eyes will be on her as she tries to navigate through a tricky draw, which may see her face Simona Halep early on.

    Danill Medvedev is also back in action as the top seed hoping to make his mark at the top of the game after his first Slam win in New York. There are no previous men’s singles champions in the draw so this title is up for grabs by many, including an in form Casper Ruud and 2nd seed Stefanos Tsitsipas who has the easier of the draws on paper.

    Join Joel and Kim as they weave their way through the men’s and women’s singles draws and make some terrible predictions on the way!

Essential listening for all tennis fans!

Love it when my phone lights up to tell me there is a new episode of this pod available. Essential listening on my drive to the courts!! Informative and fun discussion on all the happenings in the ATP and WTA tours as well as the Slams. Long may it continue especially as we enter the cold days of winter ... thanks Joel and Kim. Keep it up.

Alexandra-Mc ,

Best tennis podcast by fans

Really relatable content for a UK tennis fan. Love the quizzes and competitions and more focus on doubles than most other podcasts, which I love.

adaobs ,

My favourite tennis podcast

They both have really relaxing voices and get into the nitty gritty discussions that we really want to hear. I love Kim’s honesty in particular. Great show!
