Podcast #169: Forgettable Finals - Eight is ENOUGH!!

Let's close this frigging 2020 Australian Open championships. This 2020 hasn't been of much good so far ... We break the impact and relevance of the men's finals as Dominic Thiem continue to put in all the hard work but still no cup. Djokovic continue to dominate in Melbourne and yet he still gets no love. Will Kenin's winning her major give her and her father the economic and social boost that they so desperately crave? How could Garbine let us down so much? All this and more and we erase this Australian Open 2020 from our minds and spirits. Can tennis ever be consistent on the rules and regulations? That's what I really want to know.

Podcast #145: Indian Wells Was Not So Swell!!!

Due to time constraints and popular demand, there will be more than 1 podcast this week. So even though this is short and sweet, there is more candy to come...... In this episode we discuss the results. We try to come to terms with the fact that Title 101 was on lock but Federer had no interest in that journey. Thiem swooped right in. Has the WTA got a new rising star in Bianca Andreescu? Later this week we will discuss all the issues on the ATP, WTA, Osaka, Djokovic and all that jazz. NB please note that Janina is sounding like she is far far far away.

Podcast 161: From Russia with Love Part II

So Russia was able to steal an Olympics and an election but it proved unable to take one measly US Open men's title. So we close out this event like our men's Runner's Up, Danill Medvedev. So much to get into that I am not sure we covered it all but you can definitely let us know in the comment section below especially on YouTube.  We talked about #BlackGirlMagic of Taylor Townsend, Coco Gauff and Naomi Osaka. Serena is as always the ultimate but what is going on with her in these finals. #Serenamajorsale handing out free majors to the WTA. Folks are discussing all kinda theories as to why she hasn't collected #24 and so do we.  We talk about Federer and what's going on, the fashion and the continuing sexist and racist approach to rules and regulations in tennis.

Podcast #171: All is not swell at Indians Wells!!!

Back with another exciting episode for you in this very stressful time of a pandemic. We are here to serve you up with the best medicine, laughter. So as usual, tennis thinks it can isolate and insulate itself from the global world. They always take a different path. With the corona-virus outbreak impacting California, Indian Wells is slated to go on and we ask the WTF questions?? We get into the weeds of this issue especially with that comic public statement. Several hours after taping, the tournament turned off Fox News and cancelled the tournament. Of course, it goes without saying that they heard our full discussion and acted appropriately. Hear our full discussion for yourself and let us know what you think.  Not only do we get into this contamination, we also get into the other viral illness that is Sharapova Sickness. She is retiring and we wanna know what is the legacy and should we even care. And of course, with one retirement, we have a return. Andreen forces us to discuss the new return of Kim Clijsters.  All this and more to be heard on this episode. Don't forget that the discussion can continue wherever you can find us to tell us your comments and how you really feel!!!

So we are back for another podcast with a report from Andreen about her experience in Acapulco, Mexico. Without a doubt we are excited about the fact that our fave Federer won his 100th title but we do not all share the same level of enthusiasm for this. Topics and Issues discussed in this episode are: -WTA and ATP Resultz: The tournaments that we cared about and got to watch.-Andreen wants us all to go to Mexico for this joint event. -Federer at 100-Nick Kyrgios and what he brings to the sport-Divadal and his Diva antics in the press conferences.-Monfils' magic is BACK-GIFS are not free gifts as per the ATP and Tennis TV- Saschia Vickery and her experience as a struggling player in her Behind the Racquet posting. -Are tennis players willing to be "socialists or capitalists" when dealing with their issues on the tour?-Realz is writing a piece on Martina and her views on transgender athletes. We are looking for folks and information on the new ITF rule changes on who are pro tennis players and how this plays out on various levels of the tour.
