On this week’s podcast, we cover the good in both Dubai and Acapulco including Roger and Novak back in action. Plus, the WTA has a new teenage queen and because it’s the Oscars, we review Wimbledon (yeah the Kirsten Dunst movie).
- Checking in on Dubai and Acapulco. How do Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer look in their first action since the Australian Open. Plus, has Acapulco’s move to hard courts really made it a more attractive destination for players? (1:15)
- Venus wins Dubai. We discuss Venus’ surprising win and how impressive her 16 year title span is. Plus, debating if Serena or Venus would ever lose on purpose if it benefitted the other. (5:18)
- Madison Keys is the new teenage number one. WIth Genie Bouchard turning 20 this week, we discuss how Madison Keys will do in the role of best teenager on tour and where/when her breakthrough will come. (8:50)
- It’s Oscar Week and because there are no tennis related nominees, we went into the vault and rewatched Wimbledon (2004) in its 10th anniversary year. Were Paul Bettany and Kirsten Dunst believable on screen and what impressed us most in this quaint rom-com? (10:45)
