On this week’s Urban Tennis podcast, we discuss Novak’s mindset heading into his title defense, if Andy Murray’s playing better than 2013, how much pressure is ‘really’ on Serena and more insights before play starts on Monday.
- Despite the extended grass court season this year, Novak Djokovic’s first action on grass will come when he opens Centre Court on Monday seeking a third Wimbledon title. We discuss Novak’s mindset only three weeks removed from a difficult loss and if the drama surrounding Boris Becker’s comments has been a distraction? (1:36)
- After winning again in Queen’s Club, Andy Murray comes into Wimbledon in excellent form. We debate if he’s actually a better player now compared to when he last triumphed here in 2013? Plus, how confident are we that Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer can handle easy first week’s this year at SW19? (10:27)
- Serena Williams has stated in her pre-tournament interviews that she feels ‘little pressure’ ahead of another chance at the Serena slam. We discuss why her statement is largely correct and what type of player she should be plausibly worried about at Wimbledon? (17:30)
- In the media/technology segment, we discuss Roger Federer’s foray into Periscope and the implications live streaming sites have on the bottom line in tennis or other highly touted live events? (23:22)
