Great podcast

Really like this podcast. I am a WTA tour fan. Definitely certain players are my favs but I follow the tour as a whole too. This mean following lots of players on WTA, espeically since depth and volatility are the norms on the tour. It's good to have a podcast that can just focus on WTA players that succeeded last week. I love listening to the players themselves. You dont get that in other pods, at least not as much. My personal favorites to listen to are Kuznetsova, Pliskova, Kvitova, Petkovic, Mirza, Strycova. They have different combinations of thoughfulness, eloquence, self deprecation + self awareness, and candidness. It's worth listening to the players themselves cause otherwise we just get to see/hear filtered quotes from other sources. For me, knowing their voices and speech patterns adds another dimension to the their personalities.

I love listening to the coaches too. With on-court coaching, coaches get a higher profile on WTA tour. It's good to listen to them and get a completely different picture of the tour. I liked the ones with Torben and David K but lower profile coaches like Thomas Drouet can be enlightning to listen to as well.

Note that this is an "official" WTA podcast. So, sensitive, controversial matters (like Sharapova ban) either may not get handled or you may get a "party line" on them. That's fine with me cause you have lot ofother independent pods that can cover these topics in depth.

Courtney is a good host and I think the addition of David Kane makes for better episodes, since you have a "conversation" rathern than a "monologue".

Overall, a good idea and execution from WTA.

Great analysis and player interviews!

I have been a WTA fan on and off for a few years, but it wasnt until recently that I really became a diehard fan. That happened around the time this podcast started and it helped me get to know the players and the game better. I love how Courtney interviews the players in such a friendly tone, you can tell they know each other. It's because of this that the players real personalities come thru becouse they are not just giving stock answers, they are having a conversation about tennis (and other things sometimes too). That and I also love her analysis of Slams and tourneys upcoming. When she does a draw review it helps me know what story lines to be watching out for as the slam progresses. I love this podcast as a tennis fan and if you love the WTA like I do it is a must listen!!!

WTA coverage with Dan Carlin-esque narration

Good production value with the sound-bite interludes and Courtney's narration well captures the gravitas of it all.
