    Ben Rothenberg on Australia, Peng Shuai, and the changing world of journalism

    38:34

    Ben Rothenberg is one of the most well informed, and polarizing figures in the tennis twittersphere. He's a fantastic writer, working for outlets such as the New York Times, as well as being one of the editors of Racquet Magazine. He's also written the definitive story (to this point) on the abuse allegations against Alex Zverev. He's also one of the more polarizing figures in tennis social media circles. We spend about 10 minutes each on: 1) His upcoming trip to Australia 2) the lack of real updates on Peng Shuai and 3) how he balances his journalism, with his social media presence. Hope you enjoy!

    Challenger University? Get Me a Job.

    35:11

    First, yeah, Mike has covid. (I'm fine, I promise). So, this week's plans for multiple pods got completely shot in the foot. But, Noah was a trooper and sat in the cold so we could record a pod to discuss ATP Chairman Andrea Gaudenzi's quotes about Challengers. Obviously, this caused some heat. We'll recap, go over it, and go from there. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

    Behind the Racquet with Aleks Vukic

    45:33

    Quiet, business like, and driven are great ways to describe Aleksandar Vukic. As opposed to a lot of the pros, who have had an amazing junior pedigree, he came to the University of Illinois as a secondary prospect. But now, after a run to the Finals in Charlottesville, he's starting to realize his top 100 dreams. We'll also discuss his new coach, his Covid diagnosis immediately before the US Open, and the difficulties of being away from Australia for such a long period of time in 2021. As a bonus, we do add in the post match interview with Stefan Kozlov after he won the title in Charlottesville. Talk to you from Knoxville! Learn more about your ad choices.

    Vasek Pospisil on the state of the PTPA and how it impacts Challengers and Futures

    34:34

    One of the co-founders of the PTPA, Vasek Pospisil, joins Mike and Noah from Charlottesville, where he's the top seed at the Charlottesville Men's Pro Challenger. Our half hour chat didn't even begin to get in to the full depths of the PTPA and how it fits in to the tennis landscape. But Vasek did give an update on where it's at now, how it impacts lower level players, and he debates the clarity of message with Mike. He also discusses how it's impacted him on court...and hopefully, we'll get another opportunity to get in to it more during the offseason. Learn more about your ad choices.

    Mary Carillo on the Zverev Allegations and Tennis Journalism

    43:55

    We dive in deep to the legendary commentator's decision to resign from her commentary duties with the Laver Cup this past weekend. You'll hear her explain why with regard to the domestic abuse allegations against Alex Zverev, and why that decision, and others in her career, have been so important to her, and have also cost her work. Quick note from Mike: This was a difficult pod to record for me personally. Mary is as authentic as it can get, and it made me a) realize some of my own shortcomings in that department, while also b) inspiring me to find my own path forward in the same regards when it comes to journalism and authenticity. Hopefully it will be a fascinating pod for you guys as well! Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

We talked with the 24-year-old about her standout career in Columbus, her ascension in the pro ranks, and how challenging it has been to maintain that level. We go through some fishing excursions she's had down in Tampa, and a very, very special and important request for the tournament organizers in Indian Wells. Learn more about your ad choices.

    Jamie Loeb takes the court on Grandstand this afternoon against Iga Swiatek after a gritty, and hard earned qualifying run last week. It's her first main draw appearance at the Open since 2015. And she's really, truly, been through a lot this last year. This is her story of how she's found new perspective, fought through covid, self doubt, and is allowing Jamie Loeb to be Jamie Loeb.
