On this week’s Urban Tennis podcast, we discuss the first few days in Melbourne, Juan Martin Del Potro’s emotional week and discuss the ongoing roof race at each Grand Slam.

  • Before the possible 2014 Australian Open rematches that may occur over the next two weeks (Nadal/Federer and Djokovic/Wawrinka among them), we detail the obstacles that face each of the top four seeds. Plus, we outline our sleepers and locks in each section of the draw. (2:01)
  • After almost a year away from competitive action. Juan Martin Del Potro returned briefly this week in Sydney before his ailing wrist forced him out of the Australian Open. We share our feelings on the emotional return and the latest setback and how long before  Del Potro’s career is in jeopardy? (8:25)
  • On the women’s side, we talk about the potential blockbuster matches created by an unseeded Victoria Azarenka and why we shouldn’t feel bad for Caroline Wozniacki’s poor luck? Plus, we offer our picks and players to watch in each quarter. (11:06)
  • With the newly renovated Margaret Court Arena, the Australian Open becomes the first slam to have as many as three courts with a retractable roof. We discuss the ongoing arms race among the Grand Slams and how secondary courts should be as important as the main court at each venue? (16:49)

Plus, a Game of Challenges (19:56), Social Media highlight of the week (21:50) and much more…
