Ben and Courtney are super, super excited about this episode, you guys. We did an interview for the show with Andrea Petkovic after her second round match in Charleston, and it was predictably awesome. Then Petko kept winning and winning, so we kept seeing her at press the whole rest of the week, which ended with her walking away with the trophy. So we recap the week that was briefly, bring you our interview with her (which touches on handling losing, the differences between men's and women's players, tour gossip, and much, much more), and then bring you some highlights of her press conferences. If you like Andrea Petkovic (and obviously you do), then you'll love this episode (and certainly you will). As always, thanks for liking us on Facebook, following us on Twitter, and subscribing and reviewing on iTunes! You, dear listeners, are way cooler than Coldplay.

Episode 70 is a big, big, big one, and you'll like it quite a bit! Live from Charleston, Ben and Courtney discuss the tournament that was in Miami, and what it means for both Novak Djokovic and Serena Williams to have emerged from Key Biscayne victorious. Also, how do those two tournaments stack up against each other? We then flash forward to Charleston, and (through some studio magic) discuss Serena's surprising first round loss to 78th-ranked Jana Cepelova. Lastly, we are joined by our first guest of 2014, Madison Keys, who discusses dancing with Andrea Petkovic and life as an Eisenbuddy.

Episode 69 offers you delayed gratification! Live from the NCR West Studios, Ben and Courtney discuss the goings on of Indian Wells. What do we take of Roger's resurgence and Novak's reliability? And how about Flavia Pennetta's surprise triumph? Is that a satisfying result? We then discuss what to expect from Miami. But Miami is almost over, you say? Who asked you? But seriously, you guys, thanks as always for listening, and thanks for following us on Twitter, liking us on Facebook, and subscribing and reviewing on iTunes!

Ben and Courtney come to you midway through Indian Wells, where many of the top seeds have already dried up and withered in the thin desert air. What do we make of the players who lost and the players who beat them? What, first of all, of Rafael Nadal, and the inspired play of Alexandr Dolgopolov to knock him out. Is Maria Sharapova's loss to Camila Giorgi cause for concern? And what do we make of the tough questioning Giorgi faced in press? And should Victoria Azarenka have taken the court at all? All this and a little more is waiting for you! As always, thanks for following us on Twitter, liking us on Facebook, and subscribing and reviewing on iTunes! You occupy a king-sized bed on our hearts, dear listeners.

For Episode 67, Ben and Courtney are live on location in beautiful Indian Wells, recording under the desert stars at a tournament which has exploded by leaps and bounds since we first came here. The growth is impressive, but is it all for the best? We discuss. We also talk briefly about the men's and women's draws, and about the highlights of the WTA All-Access Hour. We announce the arrival of this episode with all the enthusiasm of Jelena Jankovic, and we hope you receive it the same way!
