Podcast Episode 58: An Unexpected Introduction to the European Clay Season

Episode 58 of the Tennis Abstract Podcast, with Carl Bialik of the Thirty Love podcast, recaps the Monte Carlo Masters and tries to make sense of Rafael Nadal’s semi-final loss to Fabio Fognini. We discuss how seriously to take the early exits of Nadal and Djokovic, as well what the result tells us about Fognini. We also cover the Fed Cup final four and consider whether the women’s event should undergo a radical change next year to match the Davis Cup.
