Novel, transparent, and interesting POVs on tennis

I've been listening to NCR for more than a year now and have come to regard it as essential for my tennis fandom. I appreciate that Ben and Courtney have opinions about players and the game, e.g. Ben's positions against best-of-five sets and for underhand serves or Courtney's preference for tour parity over domination by a few greats. As someone who grew up only watching the slams and mostly men's tennis, NCR has deepened my appreciation of the overall tours, but especially the WTA and its cast of characters. I don't always agree with their takes -- Ben says Sampras was boring to watch, but I think he misses the beauty and pitcher's-duel-ish excitement that came from a good serve-and-volley match. Nevertheless, the conversations are always thoughtful and entertaining. Keep up the good work!

Shocked Courtney would allow some of the guests

Have listened to podcast off and on and really enjoyed some episodes (Kyrgios interview was great) but the recent interview with Tim Smyczk has forced me to unsubscribe and leave this review. The fact that a podcast that claims to love the WTA would invite someone who’s outspokenly supported abortion bans is reprehensible. I’m mostly disappointed by Courtney, who I thought would stand up for women’s rights to choose. Until the media actual holds these moronic men accountable for the trash that they spew, nothing will change and this interview is a shining example of the status quo. I’ll stick to The Tennis Podcast (who have had their faults but at least acknowledged and swore to be better) and Tennish

Not good

If you want to listen to two swarmy millenials talk about tennis here's your podcast. They might not know very much about tennis, but they have important writing jobs in the sport, so they are considered worth listening to. They are insiders, but only in a very gossipy, ill-informed way. While they both have annoying voices, the female is particuarly grating. I came to the podcast because of the Nick Kygrious interview. That was interesting, but Ben (the host) came across as a total fanboy, and seemed like he was pining for Nick and his badboy behavior. Pretty sad all around, but worth listening to once.
