We're at Indian Wells!

Welcome to Indian Wells! Catherine, David and Matt have made it to Palm Springs and the place they call Tennis Paradise for the first combined Masters 1000 event of the year. In this show we talk about our experience so far, discuss all the main talking points from media day, and catch up on the results from last week. There's chat about Aryna Sabalenka's joy at being a Slam champion, Stefanos Tsitsipas' injury worries, whether Iga Swiatek has been winning too easily, Denis Shapovalov's essay about wanting to ender the gender gap in tennis, a title for Donna Vekic in Monterrey, and much more.
