Indian Wells - Rybakina’s Revenge; Alcarazmatazz

Elena Rybakina and Carlos Alcaraz are the 2023 Indian Wells champions. Rybakina got her first victory over Aryna Sabalenka to get some semblance of revenge for the Australian Open final, while Alcaraz destroyed Daniil Medvedev. On one final pod from Indian Wells, Catherine, David and Matt discuss the incredible first set between Rybakina and Sabalenka, the return of Sabalenka’s double faults, what Rybakina’s victory means for the WTA Tour, the tactical elements which helped Alcaraz to dominate Medvedev, our desperation to see Alcaraz go up against Novak Djokovic, and much more.
