Episode 230: Halep Takes the Wheel; Big 3 Roll

July 17th, 2019 · Comments

Back on Centre Court among the debris of the men's final, Ben and Courtney wrap up the Wimbledon that was.

You'll hear much, including: why the men's and women's draws need each other so; the Coco Gauff breakthrough; Halep's incredible run; another close-but-no-cigar for Serena; we love Barbora Strycova; the media vs Johanna Konta; the Big 3 cruising until the late rounds and then playing matches high on drama if chunky on quality, especially the riveting Djokovic-Federer final; the wage theft from Bernard Tomic; and the imperative for tennis to find a way to foreground mixed doubles.

Until next time, keep calm and Carrie on.
