Swiatek, Sinner roll on, but what's up with Alcaraz?

Catherine, David and Matt are together to look back on an eventful week, headlined by Iga Swiatek's third straight title in Doha. We discuss the significance of her victory over Elena Rybakina in Doha, an extraordinary week for Karolina Pliskova as she dashed from Cluj, and the latest instalment of Victoria Azarenka beating Jelena Ostapenko which came with delicious handshake aggro.

On the men's side, there's chat about Jannik Sinner backing up his Australian Open title, Alex de Minaur's improvements, a first title for Facundo Diaz Acosta in Buenos Aires, current concern levels for Carlos Alcaraz and Frances Tiafoe, and the dying art of the one-handed backhand.

Finally, shout out to Reuben Greeph for this episode's outro...a Tennis Podcast classic.
