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 Twitterliking 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!

We have so much to catch up on, you guys! Unable to find recording daylight through the thick iron curtain while Ben spent the last five weeks in Sochi, Ben and Courtney finally reunite to catch you up on all the happenings in tennis! Like Stan Wawrinka winning a Slam! What was that about? Also Li Na did big things, too! What are we still learning about her? We also look at many of the other big players from this time period, including Dominika Cibulkova, Agnieszka Radwanska, Genie Bouchard, Sloane Stephens, Simona Halep, Venus Williams, Roger Federer, Andy Murray, Maria Sharapova, Caroline Wozniacki, Grigor Dimitrov, Ernests Gulbis, and more! We also try to make sense of the IPTL and what the Winter Olympics tell us about why women's tennis is more successful than so many other women's sports. We have so much to give, you guys! As always, thanks for liking us on Facebookfollowing us on Twitter, and subscribing and reviewing on iTunes! You are the bears on unicycles of our hearts.
