Episode 99g: Charleston Chats
Courtney and Ben are in Charleston for the Family Circle Cup. In between meals and food comas they convene to break down the Miami Open finals. Is Novak Djokovic the Serena Williams of the ATP? Is Serena Williams the Novak Djokovic of the WTA? Do these comparisons even make sense? We don't know! We are so high on shrimp and grits we don't even know what we're saying! Ben is so out of it he saw flying fish! It's been quite a week so far. Ben and Courtney then turn the mic over to a few people you would much rather listen to: The Players. Why is Andrea Petkovic slapping herself? Who knew Sara Errani loved math! Doesn't Caroline Garcia sound like WTA Stan Wawrinka? And Eugenie Bouchard investigates an X-File while Madison Keys bids a sad adieu to hard courts. No claiming we misquoted you here, ladies! This is WTA unplugged. The episode closes with a few clips from Ben and Courtney's talk at the College of Charleston about the current media landscape, tennis media specifically, and that one time Courtney totally screwed up on Twitter.
