Before we say adios to Miami, we discuss both Serena Williams and Novak Djokovic’s ongoing dominance at the Sony Open. Plus, Andy Murray’s coaching search, 10 years of Rafa/Roger and how losing CBS impacted this year’s Miami event.

  • Serena captures her seventh Sony Open title. How does her performance in Miami compare to some of Navratilova, Graf or Evert’s best results? Plus, should we pay attention to Li Na’s record against top 10 opponents and what it means to her legacy? (1:17)
  • Novak crushes Rafa for his fourth Miami title. We discuss how Novak was so effective at controlling play and if he keeps this strategy on clay? In addition, this year marks the 10th anniversary of the first Federer/Nadal match in Miami, we reminisce how this rivalry changed our appreciation of the sport? (6:10)
  • Andy Murray and Ivan Lendl ended their coaching partnership before Miami began. We reflect on the successful pairing and how these superstar coaches can never last? Plus, we reply to Andy’s coaching search tweet with our best answers. (11:30)
  • ESPN broadcasts Sony Open for the first time this year. We speculate if the loss of CBS hurt or helped this year’s event and discuss the ESPN kerfuffle over streaming Federer-Nishikori. (15:29)

Plus, a Game of Volleys (18:30), the Social Media Highlight of the Week (21:30) and much more…
