Episode 8 - Djokovic and Krejickova's Historic Wins, Nadal and Osaka Withdraw from Wimbledon

History was made in Paris as Novak Djokovic won his second French Open and 19th Grand Slam title (start), and Barbora Krejickova not only won her third Grand Slam doubles title to get back to No. 1, but also broke through in singles by winning it all in just her fifth Grand Slam main draw (15:37). We have a break conversation about the NBA and the Olympics (26:20) before talking about Rafael Nadal’s withdrawal from Wimbledon and the Olympics (29:21) and Naomi Osaka’s withdrawal from Wimbledon and what should be reimagined about dealing with the press in tennis and the sports world at-large (34:26).
