Lyon: No War Please!
Updated: Jul 27
Simon is joined by James Shank of Tick Tok Tennis to discuss another bumper week in the Tennis world.
As conflict rages on in the Ukraine, the ATP and WTA decide to suspend tournaments in Russia. Would they have done this without the threat of a strike? We’ll do our best to tackle that very dodgy question.
The WTA actually had tournaments! Praise the lord! We unpack a full schedule before looking at a high profile doping case.
Parting shots goes from a Maria Sakkari cover shoot to Holger Rune quotes. You won’t want to miss this one.
Btw, the Davis Cup also happened…but you don’t care about that.
