October 11, 2013 by Gurveer Mann

On this edition of the Urban Tennis podcast, we preview the Shanghai Masters and look back at events in Beijing:

  • Novak wins and loses this week in Beijing. How does the now former number 1 recalibrate his status or are no drastic changes needed? Also, the last WTA Premier Mandatory gave us another Serena victory but we discuss how satisfying it is to see Jelena Jankovic (quietly) having a good season?
  • This week on tour, it’s all about Shanghai! Does Rafa have any extra motivation to make history with a sixth Masters title of the year and first in Shanghai? Which one of the Race to London sleepers is poised to have a bigger week after Round 1 wins?
  • As the both tours continue to add prestigious events in Asia, how strong are these markets for the foreseeable future for the tours and what are some potential drawbacks?
  • Lastly in honour of David Nalbandian’s retirement, our media/technology segment will discuss how vital a viral video can be for a sport like tennis in the current sport’s landscape?
  • Plus challenges for the week, the Social Media Highlight of the Week, and much more…
