Rafa’s new role with the Saudi Tennis Federation has people talking, as one would imagine. And as such, we have our take, as well.
Plus….KickServeRocks, and Jonny’s hot list. Lots to get to, as we all descend on the desert!
Are there now more questions than answers in the men’s game, after watching Jannik Sinner bludgeon the field, winning his first (of presumably numerous) major championships, down under?
And what about the state of men’s pro doubles? The new #1 is a great guy and great player, but he’s 43 years young!
And Aryna may not be “ranked” #1, but I mean…come on, seriously??
On the 2024 debut, “what does a dream semi look like this year?” Three youngsters and a Joker? Yep, that’s probably a likely foursome!
And, Mats, Jonny, and our rockstar Kevin Cronin all weigh in with some fun thoughts about where we are in ’24!
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.
