    Serena's legacy as the GOAT, a clash with Raducanu, Halep is back, Alcaraz cracks under pressure and Draper breaks through again

    Serena's legacy as the GOAT, a clash with Raducanu, Halep is back, Alcaraz cracks under pressure and Draper breaks through again

    Serena Williams says she will retire after the US Open, announcing in a long letter to the tennis world in Vogue that she’s “evolving” away from tennis and will focus now on expanding her family and her business Serena Ventures. What’s been her impact on the game? What’s her legacy? Where does she rank among the greatest of all-time? And what about her clash with Emma Raducanu?


    Simona Halep is back in the top 10 after winning Rogers Cup beating Zhang, Teichmann, Gauff, Pegula and then Haddad Maia in the final. How much credit should her coach Patrick Mouratoglou be getting?

    There was a first Masters 1000 title for Pablo Carreno Busta. Is he the most underrated player on tour?


    Carlos Alcaraz lost to Tommy Paul from a commanding position and spoke about feeling the pressure afterwards. Are we concerned about his US Open chances?


    Jack Draper beat Stefanos Tsitsipas for the biggest win of his career and a place on the cusp of the top 50. What do we think his ceiling is?


    Nick Kyrgios beat Daniil Medvedev. Does this change our perspective on Kyrgios’s chances at US Open?


    Dan Evans reached the semis and lost doubles final. After a big week for him, is there any sense that this US Open is last-chance-saloon in terms of having a serious chance of going deep in a grand slam?


    Andy Murray is set to take on Cam Norrie in Cincinnati, who wins?

    Kasatkina reveals she has a girlfriend and discusses Russian taboo, Hewitt makes the HoF and Maxime Cressy changes the way we think about tennis

    Kasatkina reveals she has a girlfriend and discusses Russian taboo, Hewitt makes the HoF and Maxime Cressy changes the way we think about tennis

    James Gray, George Bellshaw and Calvin Betton dig into the biggest issues of the week in tennis.
    1:35 - Daria Kasatkina reveals she is dating a woman, and her concerns about the taboo over same-sex relationships in Russia. The Russian No 1 also said she wanted "war to end", a significant statement both for its anti-war sentiment and even for defining the invasion of Ukraine as a war, something the Russian regime continues to call a "special military operation".
    14:53 - Lleyton Hewitt is inducted into the Tennis Hall of Fame at Newport, giving an emotional speech in which he said he never expected to be a HoFer, that is was something for his idols. How did the Australian make it so far? And what about that Wimbledon win in 2002?
    23:55 - Maxime Cressy wins the title at Newport, serve-and-volleying his way to victory over Alexander Bublik. What is his ceiling? He will now probably be seeded at the US Open, which could make him a tricky early-round opponent for someone. And Calvin's got another theory about the return of S&V in modern tennis...
    38:45 - Serena Williams reveals her plans for the summer will take her to Toronto and Washington before New York. How much work does she need to put in to be competitive at the US Open?
    45:18 - Inside the secret world of tennis umpires, a Guardian long read.
