Ben and Courtney remain on the road, traversing Europe and Asia, but they've now met in the middle just in time to bring you Episode 58, which is an interview with Dmitry Tursunov, one of the game's greatest talkers, and a player who has better blogging bonafides than nearly any other. We talk to Tursunov about the difficulties of life on tour, especially bouncing between the ATP Tour and Challengers. We also discuss how hard it is to keep a relationship while on tour, and how he wants to steal Grigor Dimitrov back from Maria Sharapova. Basically, if he was a Sugarpova flavor, he'd be "Envious," and it would be green and sour. New episode live from Istanbul coming soon, but in the meantime enjoy Dmitry! And thanks as always for  liking us on Facebook, following us on Twitterand leaving us reviews on iTunes

Episode 57: Ain’t Nothing But a Number One

In Episode 57, Ben and Courtney have no ketchup, but plenty of tennis in Asia! What do our protagonists make of the action in Tokyo, and the surprising results of Kvitova, Venus, and Azarenka? And what about Genie Bouchard, and the showcase-less cohort of young women she seems to be leading at the moment? And what of the Asian swing in general? Precious or pointless? Then we discuss the retirement announcement of David Nalbandian, which flows us nicely into a discussion of who is the "best" player never to have won a Grand Slam title. Then we take a number, which is usually short and straightforward, but hardly was this time around. Take this one from the top.  As always, thanks for liking us on Facebook, following us on Twitterand leaving us reviews on iTunes We've always thought you're second to none too, dear listeners.
