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.

    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.

    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

    Behind the Racquet with Paolo Lorenzi

    33:36

    Mike here: There are few people that I respect more than Paolo Lorenzi. When I heard that he had made his decision to retire last week here in New York, I can say I was genuinely saddened by the news, but am so, so thrilled that Paolo is moving on to the next phase of his life. He is one of the kindest souls off the court, and one of the more ferocious competitors I've ever witnessed. We discuss this dichotomy, and so much more, on this week's BTRPod, with a BONUS EPISODE TOMORROW! Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

    Yeah, you heard about it. Noah Rubin decided yeah, sure, I'll play Andy Murray on Sunday after losing a heartbreaker 20 minutes earlier in Winston-Salem. He was lauded for giving it a go, and at least efforting to put on a show for a packed crowd. But the story, and the pressure of that decision, was a lot more exhausting.
