    In what way was Daniil Medvedev vs. Jannik Sinner the best dead rubber of all time? Why did Medvedev’s fake yawn provoke such a reaction? Why does David like Casper Ruud so much? How did Ruud get the better of Andrey Rublev for the first time? What insights did Ruud give in his post match press conference? And how might Novak Djokovic vs. Alexander Zverev unfold?

    Peng Shuai fears grow; WTA Finals bliss for Muguruza…and Catherine

    Peng Shuai fears grow; WTA Finals bliss for Muguruza…and Catherine

    We begin this episode by discussing the latest developments surrounding Peng Shuai who has not been heard from since she made sexual assault allegations against a top Chinese government official two weeks ago. 
    Steve Simon, chairman of the WTA, has continued to take a strong stance by casting doubt on an email released by Chinese state media attributed to Peng Shuai and saying that there remains a lot of concern for her safety. 
    Elsewhere, David and Matt talk all about Garbine Muguruza winning the WTA Finals. How did she beat Anett Kontaveit in the final? In what way did Guadalajara bring out the best in her? What made her so emotional in victory? And what does this title mean in the context of her career? 
    There’s also more chat about the ATP Finals, including the performances of Jannik Sinner and Cameron Norrie as alternates, Novak Djokovic’s contentment, and whether Andrey Rublev needs a Plan B. 
    Finally, we react to a detailed update from Roger Federer about his knee injury.

    Semi-finals set in Guadalajara; Turin feels a lot like London

    Semi-finals set in Guadalajara; Turin feels a lot like London

    It’s down to the final four at the WTA Finals in Guadalajara. David and Matt discuss how perfect it feels for Paula Badosa to be facing Garbine Muguruza in the semis, the way in which Maria Sakkari’s physical prowess should enable her to recover from her gruelling win over Aryna Sabalenka, and whether Anett Kontaveit’s momentum has been snapped at just the wrong time. 
    Over in Turin, the ATP Finals are underway. Why does it look and feel so similar to London? Will Matteo Berrettini have to withdraw? How is the court speed impacting matches? And in what way did a nap inspire Andrey Rublev? 
    We also give an update on Peng Shuai, react to the WTA’s statement on the matter, and consider where this leaves the WTA and the future of its relationship with China.

    WTA Finals - Badosa & Sabalenka soar, Swiatek out but still a winner; Where is Peng Shuai?

    The WTA Finals in Guadalajara have come to life, with Garbine Muguruza keeping her hopes alive, Paula Badosa battling past Maria Sakkari, and Aryna Sabalenka using the crowd's energy and support to summon her best tennis. David and Matt talk about it all and we hear from Iga Swiatek who spoke openly in her press conference about how PMS affected her in the first match.
    There's also a review of Tommy Paul's victory over Denis Shapovalov in Stockholm, more excitement about Carlos Alcaraz after he won the Next Gen Finals, and a shocking and disturbing report from China where Peng Shuai has not been heard from since accusing the country's former vice premier of sexual abuse.
