    Olympics Re-Lived: 2016 Rio

    Olympics Re-Lived: 2016 Rio

    Rio 2016 was a particularly emotional and memorable Olympics for tennis, with Andy Murray defending his gold medal, Juan Martin del Potro entering people’s hearts, and shock defeats for Serena Williams and Novak Djokovic.
    But it was Monica Puig’s run which best encapsulated the spirit of the Games. Catherine talks to her about how it felt to win Puerto Rico’s first ever gold medal.
    As our journey through tennis’ history at the Olympics arrives at its final destination, we also speak to Christopher Clarey and Mary Carillo about their favourite memories and experiences of covering the Games.
    Finally, we reflect on tennis’ place in the Olympics and consider the impact of Tokyo’s postponement.

    Olympics Re-Lived: 2008 Beijing

    Olympics Re-Lived: 2008 Beijing

    The Beijing Olympics are perhaps best remembered for the world-beating achievements of Usain Bolt and Michael Phelps, but it was also an unforgettable Games for tennis.
    We discuss Russia’s clean sweep of the women’s singles medals, how much a gold meant to Elena Dementieva, the way China embraced tennis, the lasting influence of the Beijing Games on the sport, how much Roger Federer values his doubles gold, and Rafael Nadal’s ascension to World No.1.
    There was also an epic semi-final between James Blake and Fernando Gonzalez featuring a moment of controversy over whether or not Gonzalez’s racquet had touched the ball. On the podcast, Blake explains exactly why it made him angry, and Gonzalez gives his version of events.
    Blake also discusses his one and only victory over Roger Federer and reveals how difficult it was to bounce back from a loss and play the bronze medal match.

    No US Open for Nadal; Olympics Re-Lived: 2004 Athens

    No US Open for Nadal; Olympics Re-Lived: 2004 Athens

    We begin this episode by discussing the news that Rafael Nadal has opted not to defend his US Open title due to health risks before moving on to re-live the 2004 Olympics in Athens.
    It was a Games which saw Justine Henin-Hardenne win gold, Roger Federer stunned by Tomas Berdych, and double gold for Chile as Nicolas Massu won singles and doubles, alongside Fernando Gonzalez.
    We hear from both men at length about their magical week together and what it meant to their country.
    The men’s singles silver medallist, Mardy Fish, also opens up about the heartbreak of missing out on gold, what he was feeling while standing on the podium with silver, and why the scar tissue from that experience meant he never played again at the Olympics.

    Tennis is back; James Blake discusses the challenges

    Tennis is back; James Blake discusses the challenges

    Tennis is back. But there are still question marks about the sport’s short-term future.
    In the first half of this episode we discuss the return of the WTA Tour in Palermo and the mood surrounding the US Open before wrapping up the results from the various exhibition events. 
    Then, we hear from former World No.4 and current Miami Open tournament director James Blake (starting 43:26).
    He takes us through what happened during the week in March when Miami was cancelled and explains why he’s struggling to envisage the US Open going well.
    He also praises the way in which Naomi Osaka and Coco Gauff have used their platform for good during the last few months and declares why he thinks more unity between the WTA and ATP would benefit tennis.

    Olympics Re-Lived: 2000 Sydney

    Olympics Re-Lived: 2000 Sydney

    The 2000 Sydney Olympics were a happier time. Steve Redgrave won his 5th gold for Great Britain and Cathy Freeman became a symbol of national reconciliation for Australia.
    In this episode, we look back on a tennis event which also delivered compelling storylines, including double gold for Venus Williams to cap an extraordinary summer and a 4th place finish for a young Roger Federer.
    We also hear from men’s singles gold medallist Yevgeny Kafelnikov (starting 23m 27s) about his epic final against Tommy Haas, his experiences in the village, why his gold medal has defined his legacy in Russia, and how he compares it to his Grand Slam titles.

narcolepticad ,

Great podcast for tennis lovers and the casual fan alike.

Love their banter, knowledge, camaraderie, humor, passion, stories, and perspectives.

your voices are sweet music ,

Thank you

Truly a perfect trio in discussing and sharing their stories, their descriptions, and thoughts. I’m talking about Catherine, David , and Mats. The going back in time discussing the Wimbledon classics has brought tears and laughs and the nervous feeling of watching those
Matches ... thank you

It’s ok

It’s ok but their constant attempts to be “woke” get annoying. They should talk more about tennis.
