US Open Day 11 - Swiatek & Jabeur set up fitting finale

With the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, it was been a strange, unsettling day at the US Open. Sporting coverage on BBC Radio was replaced with rolling news and obituary programming, meaning David didn’t commentate on the tennis. Catherine wasn’t required to present Prime Video’s coverage and a moment’s silence was held on court ahead of the women’s semi-finals.

We discussed what to do with the podcast and decided to continue production - we are a tennis podcast on-site at the US Open, with a global audience of tennis fans. We understand and respect that some of our listeners will not want to listen to us at this time, but we want to continue as normal for those that do. So on we go. And in this episode we review semi-final wins for Iga Swiatek and Ons Jabeur.
