Released Monday, 18th June 2018
Good episode? Give it some love!
Together in Birmingham, Ben and Courtney look back on the French Open, which ended with creative destruction. But before the "demolition party," there was Rafael Nadal's as-planned crushing of Dominic Thiem. How do we appreciate dominance while not being bored by the inevitable? What progress did Thiem show by reaching his first final? And why should no one be overly impressed by Sascha Zverev's run to the quarterfinals?On the women's side, what does Simona Halep's break through say about her previous struggles? What has made Sloane Stephens into a perennial contender? And how do we assess Serena's grass prospects?
Then, lots and lots of rants.
