  • The Jimmy and Maria Show! We look at Sharapova’s surprising move to bring on tennis legend Jimmy Connors as her coach.
  • After a shocking early second round exit at Wimbledon for Federer, we look at all the changes he’s making this summer from racquet sizes to sweater vests.
  • As the US Open Series enters its 10th year, we look at how the tournament series has changed the North American hard court season.
  • In the wake of Major League Baseball recently adding classic games in full to its Youtube channel, we discuss the state of classic tennis available online.
  • Plus, much more…

    A quick correction, we wrongly attributed Goran Ivanisevic being in the 1993 Wimbledon Gentlemens Final against Pete Sampras. Instead, it was Jim Courier who lost in four sets that year. The five set match we talk about happened in 1998 (but it still is worth checking out!).
