Double Break (episode 15) - Wimbledon draws preview

Jacopo Lo Monaco calls up on Vanni Gibertini who is on site at the All England Club to analyze together the single's draws for the 2018 Championships. Regardless of her ranking, Serena Williams is the star of the women's competition (04:10). All the other players (14:41) will keep a look on how she is doing.The men's draw (30:57) lives, once again, on the duopoly Federer-Nadal, with everyone struggling to see who could rain on their parade (now that Centre Court has a roof!)

Double Break (episode 14): Road to Wimbledon - whose grass is greener?

After an unfortunate mishap during the post-Roland Garros podcast, the most dynamic duo in tennis (Jacopo Lo Monaco and Vanni Gibertini) return to reflect on the grass season so far. Roger Federer came up short in Halle (02:50) against a surprisingly solid Borna Coric (06:14), while at the Queen's club in London (14:23) Novak Djokovic missed a match-point in his first final in a long time to lose to Marin Cilic (20:22), who confirms his role as one of the favourites for the Championships. Kyrgios (22:44) had a good run to the semifinal and picked up a €15,000 euro fine for unsportsmanlike conduct, just to live his role to the fullest.In the WTA Tour (29:45) Petra Kvitova won her 5th title for 2018 in Birmingham and goes into Wimbledon as the de-facto favourite. Serena (33:46) should not be seeded, and probably will not be (unlike what may be happening at the US Open), although the bookmakers have her as the n.1 favourite.The men's seeds for the Championships are out (38:16): Cilic ...

Double Break (episode 13): Roland Garros - Draws analysis

Jacopo Lo Monaco and Vanni Gibertini return to analyze the singles draws for the second Slam of the year. They pick their favourite first round matches (04:40) and then they go through each draw, men (21:09) and women (41:48), pointing out the possible match-ups they would like to see and whose chances they fancy to get to the business end of the tournament.

Double Break (episode 12): Waiting for Paris

Jacopo Lo Monaco and Vanni Gibertini are back after a short break to talk about the Mutua Madrid Open and what indications it gave us going heading towards the French Open.Nadal lost. And that is big news (01:45). But the big favourite for Rome and Paris is still the Spaniard from Manacor. Nadal has never really felt comfortable in Madrid (03:52), it is by far his least successful clay court event. Thiem and Zverev (05:59) look the most credible opponents to Nadal on his way to an 11th title at Roland Garros. But are they really?Other players, some of which did well in Madrid, could be a factor in Paris: Shapovalov (10:32), Anderson (13:10), Edmund (14:20) and Djokovic(16:20).Petra Kvitova has won Madrid (21:16) for the third time and has already racked up four titles this season – is Paris the next one? Kiki Bertens (23:00), Karolina Pliskova (24:05) and Simona Halep (25:20) all played solidly in Madrid and have to be considered among the favourites for the French Open. Sharapova ...

Double Break (episode 11): Is it "rien ne va plus" for the ITFs?

This week Vanni Gibertini and Jacopo Lo Monaco try to understand if there is anyone who can beat Nadal on clay after his 11th title in Montecarlo (02:11). Novak Djokovic showed some signs of improvement in the Principality (11:45), although he has already lost in Barcelona and he doesn’t seem to be doing much better than when he came back in Australia. Another player whose shares are on the up is Grigor Dimitrov (18:28), who won a couple of tough matches in Montecarlo and won a good first round in Barcelona.Last week it was Fed Cup week (20:25) with two semifinals in Europe and eight playoff matches to define the 16 teams for World Group I and World Group II in 2019. The final is going to be Czech Republic vs USA, in the Czech Republic, most likely in Prague.In the playoff ties (23:40) Italy was defeated for the second time in two weeks in Genoa: 0-4 to Belgium and no promotion to Word Group I. Vanni was in Montreal for the dramatic Canada-Ukraine playoff (26:00) where the locals h...

Double Break (episode 10): Tennis sees red

The clay season is starting and the ATP Tour is stopping in Monte-Carlo this week for the Monte Carlo Rolex Masters as the European swing gets underway after the first clay events were completed last week in Houston and Marrakech. Jacopo Lo Monaco and Vanni Gibertini talk about their expectations for this new part of the season (03:50). Novak Djokovic has already shown some progress compared to his two disastrous matches in the USA last month (08:00), and his draw puts him in the way of Dominic Thiem (12:10) who is pitched for the currently-vacant role of vice-Nadal in the run to Paris. But what if it was a revived Kei Nishikori to become the official challenger in the next two months? (20:09) Much will depend on who is healthy or not: now many players are injured one way or another, is it time to do something? (23:48)The women tour this week offers the Fed Cup semifinals and the World Group playoffs (29:29). Germany-Czech Republic in Stuttgart is a very open tie while the USA looks...

Double Break (Episode 6) - Goodbye Davis

Jacopo Lo Monaco and Vanni Gibertini evaluate the latest Davis Cup reform proposal put forward by the ITF (03:05): “I don’t like the round robin system with the best two second-ranked teams advancing to the quarterfinals. During the last day you may see strange results” says Jacopo. “What will make it or break it will be the participation of top players” counters Vanni. The past week saw Eugenie Bouchard win in court (not on court) in her lawsuit against the USTA (20:07). The Federal jury found the USTA negligent in the accident that caused Bouchard a concussion during the 2015 US Open and the party reached an agreement on the amount of the compensation. But is it fair that Bouchard got possibly an9-digit payout for that? She was supposed to play Vinci in her next match: had she won, the Vinci-S. Williams match would have never happened. Was that a “sliding door moment for tennis”?Four tournaments were played last week (31:00): Tiafoe, Schwartzman and Khachanov won the ATP ev...
