Madrid - Here Comes Djokovic; Bertens Earns The Spotlight

On this week’s Tennis Podcast, Catherine Whitaker, David Law and Matt Roberts discuss a fantastic tournament in Madrid, headlined by titles for Novak Djokovic and Kiki Bertens.

After a lacklustre few months, is it any coincidence that Djokovic has returned to top form when Roland Garros is less than two weeks away? How did he see off the challenges mounted by Dominic Thiem and Stefanos Tsitsipas?

As for Kiki Bertens, what’s changed to turn her into a winner of big titles? And where does she rank on the list of French Open favourites?

All the other major storylines from Madrid are also discussed. How did Tsitsipas conquer his demons to beat Rafael Nadal for the first time? Should we be worried by Nadal’s form? How did Roger Federer look on his return to clay? And what on earth happened for Viktoria Kuzmova to lose 6-0 6-0 to Simona Halep?

Finally, a word on the retiring David Ferrer. How will we look back on his career?

The Tennis Podcast will be produced weekly throughout 2019, and daily at the Grand Slam tournaments, after our Kickstarter was successfully funded by our listeners. It is produced in association with The Telegraph.
