A tennis podcast unlike any other

My boyfriend introduced me to the Body Serve earlier this year and it may be the most important thing he has contributed to our relationship. No one in any sports media that I've read, listened to, or watched discusses sports quite like Jonathan and James. They handle every topic with the appropriate perspective, deftness, and nuance that it deserves. They always touch upon race, gender, and sexuality (something you'll rarely see brought up anywhere else.) I truly wish there was this type of podcast for every sport that I follow.

Most importantly, they make me laugh. And that's usually all I'm looking for on my drive to or from work. I highly recommend The Body Serve to any and all tennis fans!

Breath of fresh air

This review is long overdue. James and Jonathan have found the magic formula to transform the famously stuffy commentary associated with tennis coverage into something I eagerly anticipate with each episode release. By framing their insightful sporting analysis with an unapologetically conscientious tone (and yes, adding a tasteful dose of pettiness where warranted), they breathe new life into a sport that has given this introverted gay man of color such joy over the years. Bravo and keep up the fantastic work!

Knowledgeable, eloquent, and enjoyable takes on tennis

By far the best tennis podcast for those looking for more than a rundown of results. The hosts are so well spoken and well researched when discussing complex issues. Listening to this podcast has made me a better person. I’ve learned how to better respond to bigotry and the typical takes people use to demean women, POC, and LGBTQ+ people. One stand out moment was when the hosts explained the nuance of how commentators/media use particular verbiage to describe how white and black people have developed in the sport. It forced me to confront my own biases and unconscious language I use that I’ve now realized has been ingrained into my thinking. Every episode I find myself laughing along with the hosts as if we’ve been longtime friends. Can’t recommend this enough, even for those who aren’t particularly interested in tennis.
