It was a year that belonged to Djokovic, Alcaraz, Gauff, Swiatek, and Sabalenka. But in the end, Jannick Sinner stole the Davis Cup, and the hearts of the tennis world!
Also, we pay tribute to a legend. Coach Dave Snyder was one of the greats in Texas Longhorn history, and meant the world to Jonny, AZ, and thousands more whose lives he touched over an incredible life in tennis.
“He taught us to LIVE the right way!”
And Mats does a nice rendition of Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door, only to be complimented later for his great job on Stairway to Heaven!! Oh well, can’t win ’em all.
Shanghai was some big-boy ballin’, and Jessie and Leyla went off too. But somehow we got on the subject of Mac and his band rockin’ Denver. And AZ was right there with him.
And Ben Shelton, Grigor, and Sebbie get some love this week, too. Oh, and we got a REAL rock star joining the show. This thing just keeps getting better!
When you sit down and take a look back at this career of Chrissie Evert, the numbers are astounding. And that’s exactly what we did when she went into the USPTA Hall of Fame, on September 27th.
Also, John Embree calls it a career as USPTA CEO, and what a run he had! Plus, “hey Mats, when you look in the mirror for the first time after reaching #1 in the world, what and who do you see”?
Coco breaks through, and Novak does it again. Is Coco on the verge of a huge run, or is the pressure about to ratchet up exponentially??
Also: Ben Shelton, the phone thing, really? Maddie Keys, as tough a loss as a player can have. Can she bounce back stronger?
Is it a RIVALRY, or just an intriguing matchup we should enjoy while it lasts? In any case, Novak got the last rip in Cincy! Get your popcorn ready, New York!
And…nice having 2 Americans in the top 10 in both men’s and women’s tennis, as the US Open looms large. Looks like BG and Coco are a pretty nice mix!
Also, our sport loses a legend, as we pay tribute to a true tennis industry giant, the late great Billy Freer.
It’s a grass-court spectacular this week on KSR. Mats and AZ debate what would be the best possible Wimby final the history books could put together? Mats has his opinion, but it’s hard to argue with AZ on this one! Even Jonny agrees.
Also, “hey Mats, why could you win the Australian on grass (twice), but never make a final at the big W? French hangover, or what?
The Jokers were wild this past weekend. An amazing 24 hours for the two Serbian sensations. One is the now clear cut best ever, the other is the best right now!
And how about Austin Krajicek, single-handedly carrying US men’s tennis, with a French Doubles Championship. And now…like the 2 Jokers…he’s #1 in the world!
Former French Champs galore, as The Jensens celebrate 30 years since their title, and Mats celebrates in rather dubious fashion.
Also, what’s your dream French final, now that Rafa has had to break our hearts? And, we pay tribute to Davo, as the Golden Age Aussies lose one of their brothers.
