Episode 277o: 2020 French Open Day 15 - Nadal Wins Easy 13th

October 11th, 2020

Ben and Courtney discuss Rafael Nadal's much easier than expected romp over Novak Djokovic in the French Open final, winning 6-0, 6-2, 7-5. 

Were we dumb to think the result would be anything different? How did Nadal get this moment so pitch-perfect, on and off court?

In what ways was this French Open still political, if less overtly so?  And what was it like to cover this tournament, and are there unexpected negatives to the Slam slog being over?
