    ‘Free’ Kasatkina wins San Jose; Is Kyrgios in the US Open mix? Canada Preview

    ‘Free’ Kasatkina wins San Jose; Is Kyrgios in the US Open mix? Canada Preview

    With the US Open series in full swing, Catherine, David and Matt review title runs for Daria Kasatkina, Nick Kyrgios, Liudmila Samsonova and Daniil Medvedev. 
    In what way did Kasatkina use her game to pick apart some big hitters? Does this title for Kyrgios in DC feel different to his one in 2019? How significant is it that Medvedev has ended his losing streak in finals? And what can we read into so many Russians doing well after their Wimbledon ban? 
    There’s also chat about Shelby Rogers, Elias Ymer, Coco Gauff’s win over Naomi Osaka, the breakthrough of Elizabeth Mandlik, the Washington heat, and Rafael Nadal’s withdrawal from Montreal.

    Garcia stops Swiatek; Sinner's edge over Alcaraz continues; Raducanu & Tursunov team up

    David’s back! Fresh from his holiday, he joins Catherine and Matt to talk all about the last week in tennis, headlined by Caroline Garcia’s victory over Iga Swiatek and subsequent title in Warsaw, as well as Jannik Sinner’s victory in Umag. 
    Has Garcia provided the rest of the tour with a blueprint for how to beat Swiatek? How much longer might she be able to keep up this red hot form? And what’s giving Sinner the edge in his rivalry with Carlos Alcaraz?
    There’s also chat about titles for Marie Bouzkova and Alex de Minaur, some aggro between Jenson Brooksby and Frances Tiafoe, Emma Raducanu’s decision to work with Dmitry Tursunov, and a preview of the week ahead as the hard court swing heats up in San Jose and Washington.

    We’re back! And a lot has happened since Wimbledon.

    It's been a minute but we're back for the first time since Wimbledon to catch up on everything which has happened over the last couple of weeks. With David away on holiday, Catherine and Matt are joined by friend of the pod Charlie Eccleshare for a long overdue appearance! 
    In a packed show, we discuss the strangeness of the post-Wimbledon period in tennis, titles for Lorenzo Musetti, Bernarda Pera and Casper Ruud, the return to form of Dominic Thiem and Anett Kontaveit, our early US Open favourites, Naomi Osaka's split with Wim Fissette, Serena Williams' intention to play a full schedule ahead of New York, the cancellation of the ATP China swing, the extraordinary honesty from Daria Kasatkina and Andrey Rublev in their interview with Russian journalist Vitya Kravchenko, and the ATP's partnership with You Can Play, an organisation committed to furthering LGBTQ+ inclusion in sport.

    After Novak Djokovic defeated Nick Kyrgios in a great four-set final, Catherine, David and Matt got together for one last Wimbledon 2022 pod.

    Wimbledon Day 13 - Rybakina reigns supreme; Jabeur's time will come

    Wimbledon Day 13 - Rybakina reigns supreme; Jabeur's time will come

    Elena Rybakina is a Wimbledon champion, coming from a set down to defeat Ons Jabeur in an exciting final on Saturday. How did Rybakina overcome her nerves to turn the match around? What could Jabeur have done differently? And will both players win slams in the future? Catherine, David and Matt go through it all while reviewing the match.
    There's also chat about the questioning Rybakina received on her lack of celebration and the fact she was born in Moscow, Jabeur's upbeat press conference, and her incredible connection with the fans.
    We also preview the men's final between Nick Kyrgios and Novak Djokovic and run through more of today's results, including the girls' final and lots of wheelchair action.

    Wimbledon Day 12 - Djokovic vs Kyrgios is on; Jabeur's Journey

    Wimbledon Day 12 - Djokovic vs Kyrgios is on; Jabeur's Journey

    Novak Djokovic will face Nick Kyrgios in the Wimbledon men's final after Djokovic's four set victory over Cameron Norrie on Friday. Why does Djokovic keep having slow starts? How did he turn the match around? Where might Sunday's final be won and lost? And in what ways was Kyrgios' pre final press conference his most candid and interesting of the tournament? These are all questions for Catherine, David and Matt on the pod.
    To preview the women's final, we hear from Reem Abulleil, a journalist who has followed Ons Jabeur's career more closely than anyone. She tells us about Jabeur's journey to this point, how she's evolved as a player and as a person into a Grand Slam contender, and why Jabeur's run is resonating so strongly in the Arab world. Looking ahead to the match, can Jabeur nullify the Rybakina power? And who will deal with the occasion better?
    Finally, we wrap up all the other results and talk about a big day for wheelchair tennis, headlined by a couple of epic wins for Alfie Hewett.
