July 4, 2022

It is Wimbledon time again and fortunately there are no more slipping and falling on the grass. However, on the other hand, there is no Federer.... but he was on Centre Court!! Why is there even a tournament? Nonetheless, this is a major so we are here for it.

Things got very spicy as we discussed the Serena sighting, Nick's tactic or tactless and Wimbledon's covid policy or lack there of. is Divadal really gonna take this grand slam As always we are getting into it as only we can.

June 13, 2022

We do not have the audacity to say we are back because we might end up going missing again. But we decided to get together to talk about what is happening in the world of professional tennis seeing as we tried to put the French Open in some context. Yet so much has happened in our absence.

The WTA lost their No. 1 but gained a new one. What does this mean? Coco is a star but she is not a major winner. Rafael Nadal is on a tear like it is 2010 again. He has won his 14th French Open title and 22nd major overall. Meanwhile should Felix be wanting his money back and a new coach? We would not be us without asking what of this Russian/Belarussian ban of Wimbledon.

March 7, 2022

Sooooo Andreen and Janina decided to go vacationing without moi, Realz and they even brought along their friend Jaz! The audacity!!! What's even more maddening is that they have a great time and sent me pictures of their adventures! 

Well you get to hear all about it on this episode of the podcast as they were there allegedly for a tennis event, ATP 500 Acapulco. Though it turns out that not everyone there had tennis on her mind. 

The ladies gave us all El Tea in Mexico. Should we even bother to cross the border for this event? What's there to do, see and eat? What of the Mexican waters? What's hotter, the men, the air or the sand? Of course no episode is complete without us getting into another tennis "controversy"!

We wanna thank @fiorebianca (Jasmin/Jaz) for hanging with us on this episode and keeping Janina in check!!!

We are finally here at the end of the Australian Open 2022! I am not sure if this event really should have happened in the first place but no one is paying for my thoughts not even a penny. We wrapped up this uneventful extravaganza with with a local champ and a perennial one. Barty and Divadal!! 

We discuss the finals ... at least the ones we watched and discuss what it means to be at 21.

Well welcome to our 8th season of RTF Podcast on the air. We didn't think we would be away so long nor expected to come back in 2022 on the wings of this mess. However, this is tennis, it so on brand.

It goes without saying that we are weighing in on this Novaxx Djoker mess regarding his vaccine status as well as his continued effort to do all he can to spread Covid-19 to the unsuspecting. We break down the entire scenario as we know so far, contextualizing it as only we can. 

We invited Pablo (@anBhanna) so please thank him for being a tremendous sport staying up so late AGAIN to be with us! We know how much yall love his BBC/Bridgerton dulcet tones.

RTFLivecast #192: This Draw Show Is Singing Broadly!!

August 28, 2021

The final major is upon us and we are back in the "studio" to bring you another live and hilarious take on the singles draws. We invited Pablo (@anBhanna) again who is over on the other side of the pond because we like to torture our guests. We were supposed to get into the draws on the theme of Broadway but the news and our own outings at tournaments lead for most of the discussion. Yes we did get into the Zverev angle and also touched on Naomi Osaka .... Yeah Nole is trying to do a thing here right? 

We finally got to the draws which turned out to be a hit musical after all!! 

As always we want to thank our guest Pablo for being a tremendous sport staying up so late to be with us!
