    US Open Day 14 - Thiem at last; Zverev devastated

    US Open Day 14 - Thiem at last; Zverev devastated

    Dominic Thiem is finally a Grand Slam champion, but he had to do it the hard way, becoming the first man in US Open history to mount a comeback from two sets to love down in the final, triumphing in a deciding set tiebreak against Alexander Zverev.
    On the podcast, we try to get our heads around what happened. Why did Thiem start so slowly? In what way did Zverev's gameplan impress early on? How did the match turn around? What did it feel like to see both players confront nerves in that excruciating decider? How scarred will Zverev be by this defeat? And what will the result do to Thiem?
    We also round up the day's wheelchair matches and reflect on the tournament as a whole.

    US Open Day 13 - Naomi Osaka - Champion; Catherine's capers

    Naomi Osaka has won her third Grand Slam title and second US Open, defeating Victoria Azarenka 1-6, 6-3, 6-3 in the final. We discuss her growing significance in the sport, how she turned the match around, the perfection of her post-match celebration, the line which summed up her activism, and her future in the sport. Catherine also reveals why she missed yesterday's podcast (a story not to be missed) and we look ahead to the men's final. How much of a chance does Alexander Zverev have and what does he need to do to beat Dominic Thiem?

    US Open Day 12 – Zverev, Thiem, and MARY CARILLO!

    US Open Day 12 – Zverev, Thiem, and MARY CARILLO!

    The men’s US Open final is set: Alexander Zverev vs Dominic Thiem. In the first half of the pod we discuss how they both got there in two contrasting semi-final matches. 
    In part two, the great Mary Carillo, who was in the stadium for the women’s semi-finals, speaks to David about why it was one of the greatest nights of tennis she can remember. She also looks ahead to the final, gives an insight into what it’s like to be on site at this most extraordinary of US Opens, and explains why it feels so special for her.

    US Open Day 11 - Wonder Women

    On the day when tennis celebrated the trailblazing Original 9, it felt right that Naomi Osaka, Jennifer Brady, Victoria Azarenka and Serena Williams produced one of the greatest semi-final nights of all time. We break down both matches and discuss the breathtaking quality of Osaka vs Brady, Osaka's final game nerves, Serena's blistering start, Azarenka's extraordinary comeback and how this defeat for Serena compares to her recent setbacks in her quest for No.24.

    US Open Day 10 - Serena Williams vs. Victoria Azarenka. Yes please.

    US Open Day 10 - Serena Williams vs. Victoria Azarenka. Yes please.

    A new chapter will be written in one of tennis' most interesting rivalries when Serena Williams and Victoria Azarenka face off in Thursday's semi-finals. In this episode we discuss Azarenka's demolition of Elise Mertens, the way we're having to consider her as a real force in the game once again, her different mindset, Serena's problem solving against Tsvetana Pironkova, and the way both players will relish the challenge. On the men's side, Daniil Medvedev beat Andrey Rublev in a match which was memorable for Rublev's banana abuse and Medvedev's sudden fitness struggles at the end of the match.

    US Open Day 9 - Brady transformation complete, Osaka next; Zverev squeezes through

    US Open Day 9 - Brady transformation complete, Osaka next; Zverev squeezes through

    On the first day of quarter-final matches at the US Open, we discuss Jennifer Brady's dominance so far this tournament, her transformation as a tennis player, how she might match up against Naomi Osaka in the semi-finals, and the way in which Osaka's development as a person is helping her tennis. On the men's side, we reflect on the ordeal that was Zverev vs. Coric, debate whether or not it was compelling, and try to figure out the reasons for his erratic serving.

My Must Listen

I have been a longtime casual fan of tennis, but once I started listening to The Tennis Podcast a couple years ago, I got hooked on the sport. They keep me energized and interested in tennis year round, sharing stories beyond the big 3. The rapport among David, Katharine, and Matt is great (though you may need to listen for a few episodes to settle into their banter and friendship). Their Grand Slam coverage in particular is awesome, with daily recaps and is my must listen podcast every morning.

The best

I love this podcast. They do such a good job and work so hard. The recent episodes on Arthur Ashe and Althea Gibson were especially impressive.

Squeakykiki ,

Middling

The success of this podcast has more to do with the fact that there just aren’t many tennis podcasts to listen to. Full of cringey moments, usually care of Catherine. But what choice do we have? :/
