Episode 9 - Djokovic Gets 20; Barty Wins 2nd Major; What's Next for Osaka

On the ninth episode, we start by talking about Novak Djokovic as he wins Wimbledon and looked virtually unstoppable while doing it; can anyone stop him from winning Olympic Gold and the US Open for the Golden Slam? Then we talk about Ash Barty’s victory and how good we think she can be throughout her career (21:35) before closing it with a conversation about Naomi Osaka’s mental health, her very thoughtful Time Magazine article, and the Olympics as a whole (27:19).
