Indian Wells - Is Bianca Andreescu The Next Big Tennis Star?; Thiem Edges Federer

Two thrilling finals at Indian Wells produced two surprising winners in the form of Bianca Andreescu and Dominic Thiem. On the Tennis Podcast, Catherine Whitaker and David Law discuss their remarkable performances.

In Andreescu, it feels like tennis has a new teenage star, one who embraces meditation and plays with stunning variety. What makes her so special? And how does she compare to the other crop of youngsters who are breaking through so rapidly on the women’s tour?

As for Dominic Thiem, how did he wrestle the final away from Roger Federer? And how has he adjusted his game to suit hard courts?

Other talking points from Indian Wells include another knee injury for Rafael Nadal, and a small blip for Novak Djokovic.

Elsewhere, there’s debate about the potential of having Main Draw lucky losers, an update on ATP politics, and tribute to Paul Hutchins.

The Tennis Podcast is produced weekly throughout the year and daily at the Grand Slam tournaments, thanks to our Kickstarter backers, in association with Telegraph Sport.
