Therefore, this podcast would not be available on Youtube for the moment. However, our guest Ben Rothenberg graciously hosted us on his media platform and recorded this session for us.

So we are coming LIVE from the US Open 2016 on Labour Day ... At least Andreen et Realz. Janina is stuck in Foreign Ohio ... She didn't get her passport together for the trip. Maybe next year, we'll all be there. Nonetheless, we discussed the US Open Week 1 in all its glorious and mundane details. Serena wins, Venus and Divadal losses as well as the other folks, Why does Djoker feel so weirdly missing from the Open? JMac Messy Mouth, The Fancy French Boys in Action, Taylor Townsend's Tare and many other subjects as only we can ...
