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!!

RTFLivecast #191: The Wolf In The Pool Grass Party!!

July 11, 2021

So we are FINALLY at the end of the 2021 Wimbledon. We brought Pablo (@anBhanna) back to close this mess. Nole has achieved No. 20 and what does this even mean? Poor Matteo! Should we really allow these 3 dudes to keep winning majors? What of the women's final? Barty has a 2nd major and Pliskova still has none. We cover all this and other affairs in the world of tennis. 

Do note that Janina abandoned us midway through the podcast for soccer! Traditor!!

July 4, 2021

So we are on our final official Middle Sunday of Wimbledon and we have full coverage of everything that is grass related. We brought Pablo (@anBhanna) back to get us through this mess. We get into the slippery nature of the surface. Who is at fault? What can be done? No Serena!!! Almost no Federer but we still have Coco and an exciting finale ahead for the women's draw. A breakout star is about to shine. Will it be Ons or Emma? Yeah Nole is around on the men's side! Who will earn the right to face Nole in the final? What about this Murray Mayhem again? Kyrgios's future in tennis?

We are back for the return of Wimbledon which was last played in 2019. The pandemic is still on but here we are again! We get into the whole messy draw with a fave guest of ours Pablo (@anBhanna). As predictable as the men's draw is, the women's always bring the delights and fun matchups. We also get into some of the news regarding the newly organized PTPA and the news conference. 

So who do you have going all the way? Who do you see stumbling out of the blocks. Let us know in the comment section or get to us on Twitter.

RTF Podcast #188: La Poubelle Open Continues

RTF Podcast #188: La Poubelle Open Continues

June 6, 2021

We are back with another exciting episode of RTF Podcast and we have a guest. One of our favourite guests, Howard Bryant of ESPN came to chat. We are discussing the dynamics of the Press v the Player v the People in Charge. Did Naomi Osaka make a power move perceived as a potential power grab by tennis institutions? What is really going on behind the scenes? What is the function of tennis press is they aren't providing in depth pieces about the sport? Is tennis a dying professional sport? Can we even see tennis anymore? Who can get us the real answers to these questions and more?

We put these questions to @hbryant42 and more. Of course we discussed the tennis we watched and all the going ons of this messy French Open as per usual. Federer left Roland Garros on his own terms, like the boss Leo he is and Serena will not get 24 here in Paris. All bets hang on Wimbledon 2021! But maybe Sloane and Coco can save Paris for us all. 

PS We will be having a live show to wrap up this tournament on the final Sunday. We know we owe you a live episode to release all your frustrations but we did not want to deprive you of watching Serena's match as it was the only convenient time to record. We do miss you all!!. 

PSS Please thank Howard @hbryant42 for again providing useful insights and context for the mad world that is professional tennis. 

PSSS Happy Pride yall! Hopefully the ATP doesn't spoil it with another problematic take.

RTF Podcast #187:  Osaka said “Au Revoir France”

RTF Podcast #187: Osaka said “Au Revoir France”

May 31, 2021

So the French Open decided that it was gonna show its whole ass and act irresponsibly and irrationally to one player, Naomi Osaka's request for a break from press conferences. Instead of focusing on the tournament at hand which is happening during a whole pandemic, the tennis establishment and tennis journalists decided to pour on more madness to the fire. Well we are here to give you the full and only take on the matter. 

PS. Don't worry about us not doing a draw show because at this point, we wanna rip up the French Open and forget this tournament ever happens.

The Black Cauldron Ep. 30: A Realz Harry Potter Series (The Deathly Hallows Part 10)

The Black Cauldron Ep. 30: A Realz Harry Potter Series (The Deathly Hallows Part 10)

May 3, 2021

Welcome to a new quarantine project brought to you by the RealzTenisFanz Podcast! We are excited to have the lovely Deb (@shackle52) that most of you already know from twitter to join Realz (@realztenisfanz) and Janina (@jlr78) as we break down the Harry Potter series while Andreen is locked up in Azkaban for not sharing our love of this magical world! We will be taking a literary dive into all 7 Harry Potter books in chronological order. We hope you will be an active part of this series.

In Part 10 of the 7th book, having narrowly escaped capture at the Lovegoods, the trio discuss the Deathly Hallows v the Horcruxes. Which should they seek as they imagine that Voldemort is after the former. They connect with the outside world via the wireless but their exuberance leads them to be captured finally. However, the Malfoy Manor holds both secrets and horrors for the young heroes and heroine. We get into this pivotal section of the book. Emotions run high in this episode. 

Don't forget that the discussion can continue and you can tell us  how you really feel!!! We're on Twitter @shackle52 (Prof. Deb), @JLR78 (Janina) and @RealzTenisFanz (Realz)!! You can find this episode on iTunes, Google, Spotify or wherever podcasts can be heard and downloaded.
