    Federer Sidelined by Surgery - Curse or Blessing? Plus Rybakina's Rise & Halep's Heroics

    Catherine, David and Matt catch up to discuss a busy week which saw Roger Federer announce knee surgery, Kim Clijsters impress in her first match for seven years, Simona Halep beat Elena Rybakina in a thriller in Dubai, and Dominic Thiem struggle in Rio.
    Could Federer’s enforced break actually be a blessing in disguise when it comes to Wimbledon and the Olympics this summer? What makes Rybakina special? And who is 16-year-old Carlos Alcaraz who won a match in Rio?

    Catching up since Melbourne - Fed Cup, Clijsters’ Comeback, Monfils’ Momentum

    Catching up since Melbourne - Fed Cup, Clijsters’ Comeback, Monfils’ Momentum

    Catherine, David and Matt are back together for the first time since the Australian Open with plenty to catch up on, including an exciting Fed Cup weekend, titles for Kiki Bertens, Gael Monfils and Kyle Edmund, and the impending return of Kim Clijsters.
    How important is it that home and away ties continue to exist in Fed Cup? Why did Jo Konta not commit to it? And will Monfils build on this form at bigger events?
    There’s also a chance to look back on our interview with Marion Bartoli, discuss some Fed Cup outfit fiascos, and collectively cringe at some social media #content involving Edmund.

    Marion Bartoli – Winning Wimbledon, Overcoming Anorexia, Coaching Ostapenko

    Marion Bartoli – Winning Wimbledon, Overcoming Anorexia, Coaching Ostapenko

    Before leaving Melbourne, Catherine Whitaker and David Law spent an hour in the company of Marion Bartoli. What followed was, we believe, one of the most powerful and important podcasts we’ve ever done.
    Topics include how Bartoli came to play double-handed on both sides, the way tennis affected her relationship with her father and brother growing up, why she felt like a failure after losing the 2007 Wimbledon final, what it felt like to finally win Wimbledon in 2013, her sudden retirement from the sport, the dark place she was in while suffering from anorexia, how she overcame it, the current state of the WTA Tour, whether Serena Williams will overtake the Grand Slam record, and coaching Jelena Ostapenko.

    Aus Open Day 14 - Djokovic Denies Thiem for Slam 17

    Catherine, David and Matt bring you one final Tennis Podcast from the 2020 Australian Open after Novak Djokovic beat Dominic Thiem in five sets to win an 8th title in Melbourne and a 17th Grand Slam overall.
    There’s chat about Djokovic’s fast start, the way in which the crowd and Thiem started to rattle him, his time violations, his mid-match lull, and his fifth set resurgence.
    Can he catch Nadal and Federer this year? How will the Olympics affect the Grand Slam race this season? And in what way is Thiem becoming like Andy Murray?
