After a review of the Indian Wells finals, Matt Johnson and I discuss the men’s and women’s Miami draw and the question of whether Murray (who since recording has ended his coaching relationship with Ivan Lendl) has any chance of defending his Miami title. Other discussion points:
- The injury cloud over many players in the top half of the men’s draw, including Del Potro, who since we recorded this chat, has withdrawn due to continuing wrist complaint.
- Becker leaves town, Novak gets his first title of the year. I get my feelings out about how Boris needs to ‘leave Novak alone!’
- Flavia Pennetta and Fabio Fognini raise the hopes for the future of Italian tennis.
- We discuss a question posed by Marc McGowan on twitter – is there a shift in the pecking order at the top of the Australian women’s game?
