Andy and Damian decide to have a friendly chat on the podcast about what has been happening in the world of tennis since the Australian Open. Many topics arise and are chewed over by our team, one enjoying the beautiful south of France whilst the other fights Storm Dennis in the northeast of the UK.
Roger Federer’s Summer Plans
Where do you summer, Roger? Always interesting to discuss what the legendary Swiss is going to do in the clay-court season. This year it would seem he may just play Roland Garros. Damian gives his opinion on this plan.
Gael Monfils, Cristian Garin, Casper Ruud & Other Winners
The tournaments came along thick and fast. We discuss the winners and the stories that came out of Montpellier, Pune, Cordoba, Rotterdam & Buenos Aires. Kyle Edmund subsequently won the title in New York just after recording finished on the podcast.
Who wins in Dubai, Marseille, Rio and Delray Beach?
Each of the draws for this week’s tournament are pored over. There’s some heated criticism of the WTA and also of the Delray Beach organizers. Damian’s article blasting Delray Beach is available to read here. There are also one or two outsiders to look out for.
Twitter etiquette, water bottle throwing and the Quiz!
Andy and Damian branch out into unusual waters this week at numerous points and poor Damian is on his own to face the quiz. Will he get a full house this week?
