Andy Murray - Comeback Complete; Bencic, Shapovalov, Rublev Win Big

Just when you think Andy Murray can’t surprise you any more, he wins an ATP title just 10 months after it looks like he’s about to retire. From the most heart wrenching press conference in Melbourne, to the day after his extraordinary comeback win in Antwerp, Catherine Whitaker and David Law have been there, and this is their reaction. There were also titles for Belinda Bencic, Denis Shapovalov and Andrey Rublev to talk about, and loads of off-court substance to get our teeth into.

Andy Murray - Comeback Complete; Bencic, Shapovalov, Rublev Win Big

Is Daniil Medvedev currently the best male player in the world?

Shortly after Daniil Medvedev won his second straight Masters 1000 title in Shanghai, debate raged on The Tennis Podcast WhatsApp group: is this just a 4-month hot streak, or is Medvedev actually the best of the ATP #NextGen and the current best in the world? It's a conversation which Catherine Whitaker, David Law and Matt Roberts continue on this week's episode. They also get stuck into the other talking points from Shanghai, including ATP Finals qualification for Stefanos Tsitsipas, aggro involving Roger Federer, and Andy Murray telling Fabio Fognini to "shut up". Elsewhere, there's chat about Coco Gauff winning her first ever WTA title and the headlines it generated, Dan Evans becoming the British No.1, and Marion Bartoli's coaching role with Jelena Ostapenko. Finally, our Davis Cup Finals competition winner is revealed, and last week's big Solihull Showdown between David and Matt is re-lived.

Brilliant Beijing – Osaka, Thiem win titles; Djokovic dominates in Tokyo

It’s the first ever Tennis Podcast road trip and Catherine Whitaker, David Law and Matt Roberts are together in Solihull, with plenty to discuss after a fantastic week of action in Beijing. There’s chat about a week of exciting match-ups and the current strength of the WTA Tour, the problem solving of Naomi Osaka and how this title might change the way people view her 2019 season, an actual defeat for Bianca Andreescu, the explosive tennis of Dominic Thiem en route to victory over Stefanos Tsitsipas in the final, and Alexander Zverev’s apparent progress.

Wuhan wonderland; Murray makes progress; What is Alexander Zverev doing?

On International Podcast Day, Catherine Whitaker, David Law and Matt Roberts recorded The Tennis Podcast via Facetime Video for the first time ever. It was an experience. Titles for Aryna Sabalenka and Alex De Minaur are reviewed, there’s encouragement over Andy Murray’s performances in Zhuhai, and delight that the WTA event in Wuhan is beginning to grow. Elsewhere, the timing of the ATP’s decision to hand Nick Kyrgios a suspended sentence is discussed, and Alexander Zverev’s announcement that he will play exhibition matches with Roger Federer instead of the Davis Cup Finals is debated.

The Sweary One

EAfter Laver Cup intoxicated tennis with its myriad storylines, content and Roger Federer swearing like a trooper, The Tennis Podcast team assembled in a pub in London to talk about it. Joining Catherine Whitaker, David Law and Matt Roberts was Charlie Eccleshare, and they got carried away, hence the length of this week's show. As well as Federer's language, the coaching of Rafael Nadal and future prospects of the Laver Cup are also discussed. As are Naomi Osaka's Osaka win, Daniil Medvedev winning again and the rest of the week's results. There's the Slam results you would love to change, the Big 3 as dogs, and David discovers the urban dictionary.

The Sweary One

Ask Catherine and David 9 - Future WTA Rivalries, Bad Behaviour Rising, Post-Career Plans For Big 3?

Recorded over lunch in New York, Catherine Whitaker and David Law answer a bunch of listeners questions. Is player abuse towards umpires on the rise? (4 mins) Which #NextGen player is most likely to consistently challenge for Grand Slam titles? (12 mins) Who will make the best coach or commentator out of the Big 3? (21 mins) Which players could develop a long-term rivalry for women’s tennis? (28 mins) If you could change the result of one Grand Slam match in history, what would it be? (32.40) Would the Big 3 be as dominant if the men played best-of-three at Grand Slams? (35.45) If the Big 3 were dogs, which breed would they be? (37.40) This week’s show was guest edited by Victoria and her #TennisPodcastPet Scousel Mousel, sponsor of our 2019 Predictions Competition. The Tennis Podcast is produced weekly throughout the year and daily at the Grand Slams, in association with The Telegraph. We will crowdfund the 2020 Tennis Podcast in December.
