In the Episode 3 of the Tennis Abstract Podcast, Carl Bialik and I discuss Francesca Schiavone and Marketa Vondrousova, the WTA titlists from last week at opposite ends of their career. We speculate on the future of Borna Coric–another one of last week’s titlists–as well.
Also on this week’s podcast: David Goffin’s steady improvement, future Davis Cup dynasties, problems with fixing the international team competition, the Italian Open’s decision not to give Schiavone a wild card, and Ryan Harrison’s surprising trip to Monte Carlo while the rest of the U.S. contingent stays at home.
Thanks for listening, and for tolerating our production “values” as we figure out the best way to do this. It will get better!
