Podcast #145: Indian Wells Was Not So Swell!!!

Podcast #145: Indian Wells Was Not So Swell!!!

March 19, 2019

Due to time constraints and popular demand, there will be more than 1 podcast this week. So even though this is short and sweet, there is more candy to come...... In this episode we discuss the results. We try to come to terms with the fact that Title 101 was on lock but Federer had no interest in that journey. Thiem swooped right in. Has the WTA got a new rising star in Bianca Andreescu?

Later this week we will discuss all the issues on the ATP, WTA, Osaka, Djokovic and all that jazz.

NB please note that Janina is sounding like she is far far far away. Forgive this audio difficulty, she would be back at home next episode.
