July 2, 2014 by Gurveer Mann

On this week’s Urban Tennis podcast, we recap Week 1 at Wimbledon, talk Manic Monday and discuss when networks should show player interviews?

  • After little trouble in Week 1, we assess who look’s the best out of the big four? Plus, how excited should Australian fans feel with Nick Krygios’ surprising performance? (1:20)
  • We reflect on another early loss for Serena and how to interpret her statement about players playing incredible against her and average against everyone else? Plus, why Petra Kvitova should be considered a title favourite after her win over Venus? (6:05)
  • Though rain has stifled the traditional Manic Monday, we preview the more appealing clashes: Kerber-Sharapova, Bouchard-Cornet and Djokovic-Tsonga (10:32)
  • In the media/technology segment, we address complaints over TV networks focusing on higher profile player interviews rather than showing more compelling live matches. Is there a better way for networks to handle live interviews and live play? (16:35)

Plus, Tennis Roulette about Wimbledon in 1980 (19:25), the Social Media Highlight of the Week (23:19) and much more…
