Covid-19 has impacted all of us in so many ways. One industry that has been hit hard, but we haven't seen in the news much is tennis. Tennis professionals that are used to getting up and working hard each day are sheltering at home for the safety of others and have lost their livelihoods. In this episode, I interview the fabulous teaching pro Marcus Reese. If you'd like to support Marcus during this time, his Venmo account is @Marcus-Reese-5.

‘Addicted to Sets’ is a podcast covering the passions of tennis fans and players, co-hosted by avid tennis enthusiast Michelle Nipko and teaching pro Ryan Vega just outside of Austin, Texas. In its most recent episode, the podcast features Cliff Drysdale, International Tennis Hall of Fame legend and the longest serving broadcaster at ESPN. Cliff began by talking about how his broadcasting career started during a Davis Cup match between USA and South Africa. Tony Trabert could not be the commentator for this match as he had been the captain of the USA Davis Cup team. Cliff was thus asked if he could take Trabert’s place as he was also from South Africa and knew the players. This was forty years ago, and Cliff could have never imagined it would be the start of a pivot in his career. He went on to cover the US Open for CBS (“they thought it was awful!”). He was subsequently picked up by ESPN and WCT (“in those days, there was no cable”). Drysdale was on the job just one week after ESPN debuted for their first tennis telecast when Argentina took on USA at the 1979 Davis Cup in Memphis, Tennessee. Drysdale was one of the first players to introduce a two-handed backhand in professional competition. Though there were others, Drysdale counts himself as the first successful tennis player to have used this technique. He shares another unique aspect of the 1960s tennis scene: there were no coaches, masseurs, managers or psychologists. Among other topics, Cliff spoke about his experiences as the first ATP President, the recent bushfires in Australia, winners’ awards and prize moneys, the importance of big serves and muscle power in the game, Nick Kyrgios, the players to watch out for today in men’s and women’s tournaments, and more. Parting advice from Cliff Drysdale: “Be yourself. Go with the flow. Like a tennis player needs to trust his or her swing.”
