Perfect tennis dinner companions, will ATP-WTA unity last, and is it ok to support Tennys Sandgren?

We’re back with another Q&A edition of The Tennis Podcast, answering listener questions about our dream tennis dinner party, the Grand Slam credentials of Alex de Minaur and Nick Kyrgios, how long the unity between the ATP and the WTA might last, and whether it’s okay to support Tennys Sandgren despite his past Twitter support for the far right.

Plus, an update on the cancellation of Montreal, a chat about the tennis players we most resemble, and a massive argument. ­­­

The Tennis Podcast is presented by Catherine Whitaker and David Law, featuring Matt Roberts. It is produced weekly year-round, and daily during the Grand Slam tournaments. It is crowdfunded by listeners every December.
