    Roland Garros Re-Lived 1989: Michael Chang makes history

    Roland Garros Re-Lived 1989: Michael Chang makes history

    When Michael Chang beat Stefan Edberg in the 1989 French Open final, he became the youngest man ever to win a Grand Slam title, but it’s his fourth-round match against Ivan Lendl which is most famous.
    Chang was trailing by two sets to love, but several moonballs, numerous bouts of cramp, and even an underarm serve later, he’d won the match and turned it into the stuff of legend.
    In an exclusive interview, Chang discusses his tactics to turn the match around, the way he got booed during the tournament after mentioning his faith, his relationship with Lendl, and how he coped during the tournament despite hearing news of the Tiananmen Square Massacre.
    We also analyse Chang’s performance in the final, hear from Edberg about how he let that match slip and how gutted he was to lose it, and look at Chang’s place in tennis history.

    Roland Garros Re-Lived 1985: Chris Evert vs. Martina Navratilova – The Rivalry

    Roland Garros Re-Lived 1985: Chris Evert vs. Martina Navratilova – The Rivalry

    Chris Evert and Martina Navratilova met 80 times in total, and their 1985 French Open final, won 7-5 in the third set by Evert, was one of their best ever matches.
    In an exclusive interview, Evert explains why she will be inextricably bound in history with Navratilova, the way they were portrayed as opposites, the reasons Navratilova was the favourite ahead of their 1985 Roland Garros final, why this victory stands out as her greatest, and the way it lengthened her career.

    Roland Garros Re-Lived 1984: The match that haunts McEnroe

    Roland Garros Re-Lived 1984: The match that haunts McEnroe

    John McEnroe never won the French Open. But he should have done in 1984. Instead, he lost a two-set lead in the final against Ivan Lendl. So, what happened?
    Having re-watched the whole match, Catherine, David and Matt give their analysis. In what way did McEnroe allow himself to get distracted? Did he choke? How did Lendl mount his comeback? And what did this match do for both of their careers?
    We also hear from Mary Carillo who recounts why it hurt McEnroe so much to lose specifically to Lendl, the way he’s still affected by the missed opportunity whenever he arrives at Roland Garros, and the poignant conversation that took place between the McEnroe brothers after the match.

    Roland Garros Re-Lived 1983: Yannick Noah and the power of dreams

    Roland Garros Re-Lived 1983: Yannick Noah and the power of dreams

    Who better to tell the story of Yannick Noah’s historic victory at the French Open in 1983 than the man himself?
    In an enthralling, exclusive interview, Noah takes us through it all, including the extra work he put in during the build-up to Roland Garros that year, his nerve-wracking victory over Ivan Lendl, the relief he felt when Jimmy Connors lost, the dream he had before the final, the words he exchanged with his father after beating Mats Wilander to win the title, and why he could never replicate those feelings elsewhere.
    Afterwards, we discuss our own Yannick Noah memories, his game style on clay, and his enduring cultural importance in France.

    Rome Re-Lived: Sabatini’s stylish dominance; Nadal and Federer’s 2006 classic

    Rome Re-Lived: Sabatini’s stylish dominance; Nadal and Federer’s 2006 classic

    We begin this week’s Tennis Re-Lived in 1992 when Gabriela Sabatini won her fourth title in Rome, beating Monica Seles in her prime in the final.
    How come Sabatini had such a special connection with Rome? In what way did she manage to make Seles’ game seem a bit limited in that match? And why have Sabatini’s achievements faded from tennis conversation?
    Then, we go back to 2006 to cover Rafael Nadal’s epic five set win over Roger Federer. In what way was Nadal kryptonite for Federer in this period? How has he developed his game since then? And might victory for Federer have changed the course of his rivalry with Nadal on clay?

Informative and entertaining

I’ve been a loyal listener since Wimbledon 2018. I love this podcast! David, Catherine and now Grad Matt give insightful analysis about what’s going on in a tournament or with tennis in general. What really makes it great though is the banter between them and the self deprecating humor. It’s fun to listen and often has me laughing out loud. But it’s also great that I can use what I hear to impress my friends with my nerdy tennis knowledge. Keep up the good work guys!

Simply the best.
In conversation, in analysis, in humour, in pollvaulting.
