Lucky Letcord Podcast: Richard Osborn of BNP Paribas Open on Legends Old and New

Today on the Lucky Letcord Podcast we are joined by writer Richard Osborn. The San Francisco resident has been covering the tennis beat for 20 years, and he spent many of those years with Bill Simons and Matt Cronin at Inside Tennis before moving on to work for,, and many other tennis publications. Richard joins Chris Oddo to chat about #BNPPO19. We take a close look at the older players making serious waves in the draw, starting with 37-year-old Roger Federer and of course moving on to 38-year-old Venus Williams and 40-year-old Ivo Karlovic. Then we look at the teenagers with a keen eye on the explosion known as Bianca Andreescu. The 18-year-old has been a true revelation this week in California. We discuss the ever evolving hardcourt prowess of Dominic Thiem and talk about tennis paradise, looking at the evolution of the BNP Paribas Open over the years and what makes this event so special.
