Indian Wells - Badosa vs. Azarenka - Match of the year? Norrie knows no limits

Paula Badosa and Cameron Norrie are the 2021 Indian Wells champions! Catherine, David and Matt discuss why the women’s final was a contender for match of the year, whether Badosa can use this victory as a springboard for further success, how #shoegate returned to bother Norrie before the biggest match of his life, the Nadal-like qualities to Norrie’s approach to tennis, and whether or not he will qualify for the ATP Finals in Turin.

We also review Citizen Ashe and King Richard which were screened at the London Film Festival last week. Spoiler: we liked them.
