Episode 44: A Russian Sniper (and a Wimbledon Preview)

June 22nd, 2013

00:0000:00
In this episode live from the Wimbledon Village, Ben and Courtney have a whooooole lot to talk about on the eve of Wimbledon.  First we discuss the controversial Serena Williams profile published this week by Rolling Stone, so we discuss the piece and her controversial comments on Steubenville. We then discuss Maria Sharapova's shocking takedown of Williams' personal life in her pre-tournament press conference, which was perhaps the most direct shot ever fired in this decade-long rivalry. We then pick our jaws up off the floor to look back at the week that just passed, including Courtney's time with Jamie Hampton in Eastbourne and Ben's time at Wimbledon qualifying, including a peek into the culture of the British National Training Centre. We then discuss the lack of a seeding bump for Rafael Nadal and preview the Wimbledon men's and women's draws. It's a whole lot of show, but we have a whole lot of love for you listeners, as always. As always, thanks for liking us on Facebook, following us on Twitter, and leaving us reviews on iTunes! It's a good way to make sure we won't say something about your boyfriend.
