Rod Laver in 1969 is STILL the last man to complete the calendar Grand Slam after Novak Djokovic fell one match short by losing in straight sets to Daniil Medvedev in the US Open final. Catherine and Matt talk about Djokovic's sub-par performance and the possible reasons for it, the extraordinary moment he received the support of the crowd and what that meant to him, the ways in which Medvedev played a fantastic match, and the story behind his legendary celebration. Elsewhere, there's chat about what this defeat could mean for the future, discussion about Dylan Alcott and Diede De Groot completing their Golden Slams, a review of the women's doubles final, and final reflections on an unforgettable tournament.

Emma Raducanu is the US Open champion. At 18, on just her second Grand Slam appearance, she qualified and went all the way to the title without dropping a set. There's never been anything else like it in tennis. At the end of an incredible night, Catherine and Matt react to her 6-4 6-3 win over Leylah Fernandez, the high-quality tennis on display, the feeling of joy it elicited, the extraordinary post-match speech by Fernandez, and why it's a moment beyond compare. Looking ahead to the men's final, is Daniil Medvedev ready to win his first major title? And will The Grand Slam being on the line make Novak Djokovic unstoppable?

Novak Djokovic is on the verge of history; after beating Alexander Zverev in five sets, he stands just one match win away from completing The Grand Slam. His opponent will be Daniil Medvedev who easily beat Felix Auger-Aliassime in the other semi-final. On the back end of the pod, we take stock of the Canadian's career, discuss how well Djokovic was forced to play, and consider how on earth Medvedev might stop him in the final. To start the show, Catherine, David and Matt are back together to preview the women's final between Emma Raducanu and Leylah Fernandez. What's the coverage going to be like in the UK? And what will happen when Fernandez's fight comes up against Raducanu's ruthlessness? The Tennis Podcast is presented by Catherine Whitaker and David Law, and features Matt Roberts.

The teenage dream will extend all the way to the US Open final after Leylah Fernandez and Emma Raducanu booked their places in Saturday's showpiece event. At the end of an extraordinary women's semi-final night, David and Matt try to convey what they saw and how they felt. How much was Aryna Sabalenka her own worst enemy? What did Fernandez do to cause Sabalenka's downfall? In what way did Raducanu neutralise Maria Sakkari's physical presence? And how did the Brit maintain her composure throughout the second set? There's also a rundown of the records they're setting, lots of shock about surreal it all is, and a look ahead to the men's semi-finals on Friday.

Emma Raducanu is into the semi-finals of the US Open. It sounds unbelievable, but it's happening. David and Matt try to make sense of it all with a discussion of how she beat Belinda Bencic and the hype surrounding her run. How might she fare against Maria Sakkari after her victory over Karolina Pliskova? Will we see an all-teenage final or will Aryna Sabalenka have too much for Leylah Fernandez? On the men's side, there's chat about how Lloyd Harris missed his chance against Alexander Zverev as well as the extraordinary comeback ability of Novak Djokovic.

Recorded while watching Jenson Brooksby throw everything at Novak Djokovic during the night session, Catherine and Matt wrap up yet another excellent day at the 2021 US Open, headlined by Emma Raducanu reaching the quarter-finals. We discuss how she overcame her nerves, the way in which she belongs on the big stage, and whether or not she's 'in the mix'. And if she's not, who is? Elsewhere, there's praise for Matteo Berrettini, recaps of Belinda Bencic vs Iga Swiatek and Alexander Zverev vs Jannik Sinner, a look ahead to tomorrow's order of play, and a look back on aggro between Garbine Muguruza and Barbora Krejcikova as well as a deeply impressive performance from Felix Auger-Aliassime against Frances Tiafoe.

Halfway through this US Open and it just keeps getting better and better. Catherine and Matt chat about how defeat for Ash Barty changes the complexion of the draw, the way Leylah Fernandez out-Kerbered Angelique Kerber and took the New York crowd with her, how Spain is covering Carlos Alcaraz, Daniil Medvedev's masterclass against Dan Evans, the way Elina Svitolina stepped up to beat Simona Halep, and a big moment for Botic van de Zandschulp.

Quite simply, that was one of the best ever days of Grand Slam tennis. Surely. Catherine and Matt recap Carlos Alcaraz's stunning performance to beat Stefanos Tsitsipas, the way the crowd turned on Tsitsipas, Simona Halep's victory over Elena Rybakina which included an epic tiebreak, a significant step in the career of Dan Evans, the continued reawakening of Angelique Kerber, and the chilled energy of Garbine Muguruza which is producing big results in New York for the first time.

Catherine, David and Matt react to Wednesday night's storm, a dazzling display from Emma Raducanu, smooth progress for Angelique Kerber and Ash Barty, a fun win for Matteo Berrettini over Corentin Moutet, and the Movement-stopping powers of Andreas Seppi. We also invent a game called Relay Tennis. Finally, there's discussion about the responses from top male players to a question from Matt, on Pride Day at the US Open, about the lack of openly gay players on the ATP Tour. What's the next step for players after declaring their support? And what are the details of the ATP's LGBT+ research survey?

Catherine, David and Matt discuss Pride Day at the US Open, Sloane Stephens schooling Coco Gauff, the discrepancy in quality and intrigue between the R3 women's line-up and the R3 men's line-up, statement wins for Garbine Muguruza, Simona Halep and Daniil Medvedev, confusion over the difference between booing and Rune-ing in Novak Djokovic's first win, and Bianca Andreescu's thrill ride of a round one victory.

Day 2 started with a tweet as Andy Murray threw some more shade at Stefanos Tsitsipas. It prompted yet more discussion about bathroom breaks in tennis and that's where Catherine, David and Matt begin this episode. Elsewhere, we talk about Emma Raducanu's impressive performance on her US Open debut, a test passed for Ash Barty in her opening match, and a couple of enthralling fifth set tiebreaks.

Day one felt like the US Open again and Andy Murray looked like Andy Murray again. Those were the big takeaways for Catherine, David and Matt on the first nightly podcast from this year’s tournament at the end of a day packed with drama, epic matches, and even some aggro. How did it feel different watching Murray this time compared to other recent matches? Should he have won? And why has he “lost respect” for Stefanos Tsitsipas after the Greek’s lengthy bathroom break? Elsewhere, we discuss how Sloane Stephens vs Madison Keys exceeded expectations, gritty performances from Garbine Muguruza, Angelique Kerber and Coco Gauff, and a big win for Simona Halep.

With Catherine and Matt together at Tennis Podcast Towers, and David in Salford, we discuss qualifying success for Britain's women, how Novak Djokovic is embracing the challenge of his Grand Slam pursuit, whether Andy Murray has a chance against Stefanos Tsitsipas, what to expect from Naomi Osaka, and why Sloane Stephens vs. Madison Keys in round 1 makes us a bit sad. There's also reaction to Alexander Zverev's press conference after more allegations of domestic abuse from his ex-girlfriend Olga Sharypova and to the growing issue of vaccine hesitancy among players.

“History was thwarted not with a spectacular act of violence, but with a half volley. Roberta Vinci tiptoed near the net and barely brushed the ball with her racket, depositing it gently on Serena's side of the court, where it bounced multiple times and died a quiet death.”  That was Sports Illustrated’s take on the final act of one of tennis’ biggest ever where-were-you-when moments as Roberta Vinci ended Serena Williams’ quest for the Grand Slam at the US Open in 2015.  In this episode, we remind ourselves of how Serena had dominated since turning 30, look back at her title runs at the first three majors of 2015, explain the story of her emotional return to Indian Wells that year, reminisce about the hype in New York as she went for history, and analyse how it all went wrong in the semi-finals.  What were the signs that Serena was stressed? How did Vinci turn the match around? And could Serena have done anything differently?  The Tennis Podcast is presented by Catherine Whitaker and David Law, and features Matt Roberts.

“In a performance so casual it was chilling, Safin announced himself as the game's next big thing by dismantling the best player ever.”  Those were the words of S.L. Price in Sports Illustrated after 20-year-old Marat Safin beat Pete Sampras to win the US Open in 2000, a story we tell on this edition of Tennis Re-Lived.  Why did Chris Clarey think Safin would be a future World No.1 from the moment he saw him? What did Yevgeny Kafelnikov think of Safin when they first met at the Davis Cup? Why was Safin the ideal guy to be front and centre of the ATP’s ‘New Balls Please’ campaign? And how did a coaching change in April 2000 help Safin to rediscover his best form after a glut of bad results at the start of the year?  Turning to New York, how much of a contender was Safin going into the tournament? In what way did he struggle in the opening rounds? And why did he need to borrow some socks from Jeff Tarango?  We hear from Mary Carillo in the commentary box about what made Safin’s performance in the final so special and Paul Annacone in the coaching box about the moment he knew Sampras had a problem.  Afterwards, we reflect on what happened next in Safin’s career, with Marat himself explaining the pressure he felt to win a second Grand Slam title, which eventually came in Australia in 2005, and the injuries which ended his career.  Should Safin be considered an underachiever? And in what way did he leave his mark on the sport beyond his results?  The Tennis Podcast is presented by Catherine Whitaker and David Law, and features Matt Roberts.

This episode is a discussion with esteemed New York Times journalist and friend of the pod Chris Clarey about his new biography of Roger Federer, titled ‘The Master’.  Chris speaks to David about the process of writing the book and what he learned along the way, the several exclusives he’s had with Federer over the years, the 82 interviews he conducted specifically for the book, why the likes of Mirka Federer, Peter Carter and Pierre Paganini have been fundamental to Federer’s success, how Federer has changed over the years, and how his rivalries with Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic have shaped him.  We also get Chris to do a quick-fire Federer round and afterwards David chats to Matt about his impressions of the book.  You can buy a copy of The Master, here - https://www.amazon.co.uk/Master-Brilliant-Career-Roger-Federer/dp/1529342058/ref=sr_1_1?crid=ABL1O2T8YDE5&dchild=1&keywords=the+master+christopher+clarey&qid=1629812297&sprefix=the+master+chris%2Caps%2C145&sr=8-1 The Tennis Podcast is presented by Catherine Whitaker and David Law, and features Matt Roberts.

A completely pointless and irrelevant comment when comparing Swiatek to Musetti. They played separate games against different opponents. Admire them both but at the end of the day Swiatek showed her supremacy again and got a win at RG, while Musetti entertained for two sets but ultimately failed because he could not get the win against Djokovic. A comparison of the two players means nothing.

Kenin is a top 15 player that had the draw fall perfectly for her. She will luck herself into a few GS finals in her career. Never will be elite though with her current game.

Pliskova was mentally done after she took 18 minutes and a 12 deuce game on her first service game.

it shouldn't be 6-0 6-0, a walkover should only be 1-0,1-0

Italy doesn't care about the Canadian w/o. In Group F, whoever wins between Italy and the USA is going to be second, who loses it's going to be third. The teams that will be affected by the Canada-USA doubles result will be the other teams ending up second in their respective groups competing for one of the two QF slots reserved for second-ranked teams. That could also be a fact for relegation should the USA end up being third: in fact we should not forget that the 17th and 18th ranked teams will be relegated an will have to play the qualification matches for World Group I
