Gill Gross gives his quarter-by-quarter dark horses, upset alerts, popcorn matchups and predictions.

Better Together

Tennis pundits release too many solo shows but are better together. A conversation is more interesting than a soliloquy. You think you’re Hamlet or Macbeth but you’re more like Laurel and Hardy.

Best Tennis Podcast Out there

Gil gives the best analysis I’ve heard. His analsyis on players strengths and weaknesses as well as matches is always spot on. He doesn’t do schtick, and though he talks about issues in tennis when they arise, he isn’t biased or political, unlike another popular tennis podcast where one of the hosts is far too “woke” and political. His other podcast “Three” is also brilliant with Joel Drucker and Amy Lundy. Keep up the awesome work!

Djoko -Nadal Rome

As a tennis fan but non-tennis player, I learned a lot from this analysis. I also appreciated how you asked Amy to explain the tennis court zones (a,b,c) on 3. Anyway, I noticed that the 2nd serve point % won was lower than normal for Rafa. Isn’t that normally a key stat to win for Rafa? Or is it because Djoko return is too good? Maybe you all could explain on 3 some time. Thanks.
