Good Topics

Interesting topics and guests. Host is horrible though. Good luck counting how many times he says "kind of"

better than nothing

There is a paucity of tennis podcasts available (compared to more popular sports), so I guess you take what you can get. The analysis is okay, if conventional. The commentators are pretty humorless and sometimes make mistakes (i.e., in the latest episode, saying Wawrinka beat Djokovic in the semifinals at AO14. It was the quarterfinals; he beat Berdych in the semis).

The one thing that is really annoying is the frequent mispronunciation of players’ names—in particular “Fognini.” I don’t even like Fabio Fognini, but it is incredibly grating to hear the Ed McGrogan say "Fog-nini." Also, “Ber-ditch.” Seriously? AAARGH please learn how to say the names! How hard is it???

I really wish there were better tennis podcasts out there. Tennis coverage in general seems to lag behind other sports in terms of intelligent commentary. Don’t even get me started on the TV coverage.

Issues outweigh the small amount of value

This is not a good tennis podcast. The second star in the rating is because the hosts are reasonably (though not overly) knowledgeable about tennis. But they both sound as if they have had little to no broadcasting training, sound the same, and speak in a dull monotone throughout. Unless you are looking for a cure for insomnia, steer clear.

Also, a pet peeve of mine is when commentators don’t take the time to learn how to properly pronounce player’s names. I understand it when someone is a new player making a breakthrough, but in the most recent episode (22 Oct 2016) they butcher both Muguruza and Pliskova’s names- big time players in the WTA finals. Either laziness or they don’t care, but in my book it’s just disrespectful. These guys should stick to writing stuff.
