The TC commentator also analyzes how Carlos Alcaraz was able to defend his crown in London with a straight sets victory over Novak Djokovic, and forcasts what the future will look like for both men. The youngest inductee in the history of the International Tennis Hall of Fame also previews what to expect at this weekend's induction ceremony, and how future member Rafael Nadal has looked in his return to action.
    Then Dustin Fox, a former NFL player and current radio host for WKRK 92.3 in Cleveland, Ohio, joins the podcast to chat about how tennis is his newest passion in life.

Ciao for now

Mitch your interpretation of this lovely sport is greatly appreciated. Applause for your ability to draw out the stars of this beautiful game. Andrea you are such a bright star. You are truly brilliantly enjoyable when you are authentic. You are not a deep philosopher and the references to deep thinking is truly overwrought. You are not David Foster Wallace nor should you aspire to be a tortured genius. You be you and that is more than enough.

Up there with the Best

This is a great podcast - rivals The Tennis Podcast in my opinion … I just love this podcast - dude does a great job. Well done. Only thing I would change - post more podcasts; I need more of this greatness. Thanks!

Heads in the sand?

I seriously cannot believe that this podcast has completely ignored the recent announcement of Simona Halep‘s four year suspension for doping… sure, it’s bad news for many, but it’s certainly a central issue affecting the world of tennis. The complete absence of comment/discussion of this situation seriously undermines the credibility of this podcast. are you guys journalists or PR tools?
