Episode 52: Lost in Vaccination Hold On to Your Racket with Josefina Gurevich and Shravya Pant

    • Tennis

Tennis players making ignorant, vaccine-skeptic comments? What a shocker! The dyanamic duo is back to unpack the latest tennis tea and Miami Open news. In Hot Headlines we discuss Pospisil's emotional outburst on court, "#playersvoice", and the uncertain and confusing future of the PTPA. We also talk about the concerning attitudes towards vaccines that many top players have expressed in the past few days, while also highlighting the ATP and WTA's response and some players who (thankfully) are using their platform responsibly to promote vaccination. Also, is GEMS life back? The two of us and Milos Raonic would love to know. Moving into Tennis Talk, we're approaching the final rounds of the Miami Open, which means that a lot of exciting tennis has happened and a lot of thrilling matches await. We discuss Grecian success (including Maria Sakkari's flawless match vs. Naomi Osaka and Stefanos Tsitsipas' solid season), young guns like Sebastian Korda and Jannik Sinner, the resurgence of Ash Barty and Bianca Andreescu, and the interesting match-up between a mustached Daniil Medvedev and dark horse Roberto Bautista Agut (correction: we said in the episode that their H2H prior to their quarterfinal was 3-1 where in reality it was 2-0 -- our bad!). Come for the tennis and stay for the laughs as we offer our opinions on the latest tennis news and highlight the best of this past week, ranging from Stefanos' shoutout to his girlfriend to Sakkari's perfect hair to Andrey Rublev's ever increasing number of chains.
