Welcome back to the Tennis Days Podcast, where Matt Johnson and I reunite for the first time since before the US Open Series began. Finding our feet as your favourite Australian tennis-based podcast once again, we hope you bear with us as we discuss mainly WTA results and trends at the top of the game, as seen over the last couple of months. I also bring in some of the experiences I have had recently as credentialed media at US tennis tournaments. Please stay tuned for more regular episodes of Tennis Days coming up in the next few months leading up to the WTA and ATP end-of-year events and then, of course, the Australian Open swing in December/January.
Also chopped in at the end of the episode is a bit of audio from a press conference in Cincinnati with Ana Ivanovic where she talks about the match that she'd just finished up against Maria Sharapova, quite a controversial moment that Matt and I talk about in the podcast. The journalists that you hear asking Ivanovic questions, in order of appearance, are Courtney Nguyen (@FortyDeuceTwits), Pete Ziebron (@tennisacumen), Tommy Keeler (@tkjpassingshots) and Ben Rothenberg (@BenRothenberg).
Here's a video of Sharapova that I filmed, which we also discuss in the podcast.
Thanks again for downloading the podcast, be sure to follow me at @davegertler on twitter, and Matt at @matte_johnson, subscribe to the podcast and tell your tennis-crazy mates about it! Thanks.
