Episode 295: Muguruza Wins; Federer Returns; Djokovic Reigns

March 13th, 2021 · Comments

It was a newsy week in tennis, and Ben is joined by our MENA correspondent Reem Abulleil to discuss it all.

Garbiñe Muguruza won her first title in two years at WTA Dubai, and seems to be building meaningful momentum as a top player week-in, week-out. What impact could that have on the tour?

Roger Federer returned to competition at ATP Doha for his first matches in more than a year; what is he still targeting?

And speaking of targets, Novak Djokovic hit one of his big ones, reaching 311 weeks at #1. How does that impact the dreaded GOAT debates?

Episode 181: Gulf Claps with Reem Abulleil

March 3rd, 2017 · Comments

With the tours spending three weeks in the region, there's no better time to check in with NCR's Middle East correspondent, Reem Abulleil, for a quick catch-up on the doings over there. After a rough go of things last year, Caroline Wozniacki made good, despite some rain on her parades. And what to make of Elina Svitolina, who has stealthily piled up some very impressive scalps?

Also, Roger Federer's stunning loss to Evgeny Donskoy and Andy Murray dropping trou.
