‘Free’ Kasatkina wins San Jose; Is Kyrgios in the US Open mix? Canada Preview

With the US Open series in full swing, Catherine, David and Matt review title runs for Daria Kasatkina, Nick Kyrgios, Liudmila Samsonova and Daniil Medvedev. 

In what way did Kasatkina use her game to pick apart some big hitters? Does this title for Kyrgios in DC feel different to his one in 2019? How significant is it that Medvedev has ended his losing streak in finals? And what can we read into so many Russians doing well after their Wimbledon ban? 

There’s also chat about Shelby Rogers, Elias Ymer, Coco Gauff’s win over Naomi Osaka, the breakthrough of Elizabeth Mandlik, the Washington heat, and Rafael Nadal’s withdrawal from Montreal.
