Episode 81b: Question–Tell Me What You Think About…That

July 25th, 2014

Obviously there have been some extremely interesting developments in the 10 days since we recorded this all-questions episode, but your questions are still awesome and we hope our answers are, too! First, we talk about the status of gay issues on the tour. Is "open secret" a sustainable status? Next, Sloane? That's the question. And what's the significance of the WTA coaching moves of Li Na and Ana Ivanovic? Also we explain to you why it's problematic that Wimbledon won't let the press ask Andy Murray about poop. Then, for a complete change of pace, we discuss taxation ethics! Because obviously! Lastly, we turn our sights to the upcoming #MERICA swing: what are the best U.S. Open Series tournaments, and is there any American man other than John Isner who could do something halfway-decent? You, our listeners, are like triple-decent.

Episode 81a: Question–Tell Me What You Think About…This

July 17th, 2014

Without much urgent tennis to attend to, Ben and Courtney decided to dive into your pressing questions! We answered a ton, so this Episode 81 has been split into two parts. Lucky you! On this first part, we discuss who will be the next first time Slam champ on the women's side, what to expect soon from Caroline Wozniacki, Victoria Azarenka, and Agnieszka Radwanska, what Fabio Fognini's deal is, women's tennis' broadcast shortcomings, Serena's burnout and how it reflects on Chris Evert's open letter, our dream tennis-rap beefs, and more!

Episode 80: We Are So Wimble-Done

July 9th, 2014

After nine weeks at sea, Ben and Courtney are very grateful to be back on their home couches, soaking up Home Sweet America. But first, there's the matter of Wimbledon to wrap up! Petra Kvitova and Novak Djokovic won! Genie Bouchard and Roger Federer did not win! What does it all mean? And what on earth can we make of Serena's surreal doubles episode? We're not sure, but we try! As always, you can like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter, and subscribe to and review our show on iTunes or whatever your podcast app/platform of choice may be!

Episode 79: A Wimbledon Intermission

June 29th, 2014

It's the middle Sunday of Wimbledon, and so Ben and Courtney sat down for a brief recap of the first act as they recharged their batteries for the second week. What do we make of Serena flopping at a Slam again? Is Li Na only a hardcourt specialist? And how good was Venus-Kvitova? Also, can Roger Federer actually win this thing? And how do we know when a player has won his or her last Grand Slam? As always, you can like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter, and subscribe to and review our show on iTunes or whatever your podcast app/platform of choice may be!

Episode 78: Hungry for Wimbledon

June 21st, 2014

Ben and Courtney are ready to whet your appetite for Wimbledon! But when this episode was recorded, Courtney hadn't eaten much strawberries and cream (or much of anything), and her cravings left her crabby and ready to scoop up some heaping helpings of tough love for the tennis world. So you've been warned--this episode comes with a choking hazard. What is to be made of Serena's odd arrival to Wimbledon? And how does her quarter with Serena set up? Should Sabine Lisicki have been given the honor of taking the defending champion's spot on Centre Court? And how tough, really, are the draws that Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal got? And lastly, we make our predictions for the finals and champions! As always, you can like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter, and subscribe to and review our show on iTunes or whatever your podcast app/platform of choice may be!
