Brilliant Beijing – Osaka, Thiem win titles; Djokovic dominates in Tokyo

It’s the first ever Tennis Podcast road trip and Catherine Whitaker, David Law and Matt Roberts are together in Solihull, with plenty to discuss after a fantastic week of action in Beijing.

There’s chat about a week of exciting match-ups and the current strength of the WTA Tour, the problem solving of Naomi Osaka and how this title might change the way people view her 2019 season, an actual defeat for Bianca Andreescu, the explosive tennis of Dominic Thiem en route to victory over Stefanos Tsitsipas in the final, and Alexander Zverev’s apparent progress.

Elsewhere, did we learn anything about Novak Djokovic in Tokyo? And are we heading for exciting WTA and ATP Finals?
