Podcast #112: Spilling more ATP with Sergiy Stakhovsky

February 5, 2018

Our 112th podcast sees us going back to the wonderful well of information that is Sergiy Stakhovsky @Stako_tennis. He gave us some insight as to life on the tour as well as all the discussion about players' unions, money matters, the possibilities, dreams and realities of organizing the tour for labour issues. We have some idea of what happened in Melbourne. We ... well Andreen (@A_Gallivant) et moi (@RealzTenisFanz) also provided some "helpful" suggestions to take back to the tour. Janina (@JLR78) was there to reign us in. There is a discussion and the post-discussion of the matter after the interview. SPECIAL THANKS TO SERGIY FOR TAKING THE TIME OUT OF HIS BUSY AND PROFESSIONAL SCHEDULE TO CHAT WITH US AGAIN. DON'T FORGET TO THANK HIM ON SOCIAL MEDIA. IF YOU WANNA CONTINUE TO HATE HIM, DIRECT YOUR HATERATION TO US NOT HIM. HE DOESN'T HAVE TIME FOR THAT. 

NOTE THAT BECAUSE OF TIME ZONES/WI-FI CONNECTIONS, THE SOUND QUALITY MIGHT NOT BE THE BEST BUT DO GIVE A LISTEN AND LET US KNOW HOW YOU FEEL ABOUT THE MATTERS BEING DISCUSSED.
