In our 40th(!) episode, Ben and Courtney are all about the French Open, wearing berets, eating croissants, and being generally disdainful for no particular reason. We have the same picks to win the title, but we explore how things could possibly go wrong for both him (Rafael Nadal) and her (Serena Williams). Then we do a more thorough breakdown of our entire draws, which is very detailed and features syllables not often uttered on this show, like "Ma-ka-ro-va." Then we debate which first round match we wouldn't take money to watch, because we take the bad with the good. Ola is in love, and we are in love with you, dear listeners.

In this short-but-sweet episode, Ben checks in with Courtney, who is in Rome at the Italian Open this week. Does the tournament still have all its old charm? And what have we learned about the current young crop of players, especially on the men's side? What does this all mean, anyway, when it comes to Paris? And why does the Ukrainian Eurovision singer lady get carried onto the stage by a giant who then disappears? We may not have the answers to all the questions, but we try our best.

In a very special Episode 38, Ben and Courtney discuss what was a huge weekend in tennis. Sloane went at Serena with her words in a revealing ESPN the Magazine interview that made us all afraid to ever unfollow anyone ever again. Then John Tomic (allegedly) went at his son's hitting partner with his head, in a bloodying Madrid throwdown. Then we talk about the Madrid tournament itself, and if it deserves its status as equal or even above the more established Italian Open in Rome. Last but very much not least, we chat with phenom Laura Robson about her improbable young career, life in the British spotlight, and her favorite sounds in tennis. We trust her singing will blow you away, will blow you away-ay. As always, thanks for liking us on Facebook and leaving us reviews on iTunes!
