Annus Horribilis Re-Lived - Part 2

Part two of our 2020 review begins with a reflection on our Tennis Re-Lived episodes covering the Olympics, Althea Gibson and Arthur Ashe. What stood out? And what did we learn? 

We then move on to the return of tour tennis in August by looking back on how we felt at the time and how it would end up differing from our expectations. 

Next, we go over the main storylines from the US Open - including the way in which Naomi Osaka combined on court winning with activism, an uplifting night of women’s semi-finals, and Novak Djokovic’s default.

Finally, there’s a review of Roland Garros, which was defined by its weirdness, Rafael Nadal’s 13 title there, and Iga Swiatek’s unexpected dominance. 

The Tennis Podcast is presented by Catherine Whitaker and David Law, and features Matt Roberts.
