Caitlin gives a report from the road at Roland Garros, slags on dumb journalist questions while Chris makes dated predictions about French Open winners and losers that will make no sense by the time you listen.
Caitlin talks with Sean Kent, host of the Tennis Nerd Podcast (who's also a host with the most who'll make you chicken fried steak and biscuits) about learning to love the game, shitty commentators and Trader Joe's.
No it's not this one. Co-host Chris is a Peabody nominee for a show he produced about the Civil War, but we BET being a part of the 5th or 6th most popular tennis podcast (out of 10) didn't hurt. What we're saying is we have range.
Journalist Claire Suddath takes us behind the scenes of her Racquet magazine feature on the sept- and octogenarian stars of the women's recreational tennis scene, as well as her affinity for old people's stories in this very special episode.
Who knew talking about Toni Nadal's Whatsapp tennis academy would inspire a dark visit with Caitlin's tennis demons? Plus, a new May/December challenge, your Project Voltron responses and some resolutions for the new year.
We waited so long to release our latest episode, we might as well just talk about 2018. Caitlin shares a shocking (panhellenic) revelation, Chris rebrands the Australian Open, and we recap 2017 as only the Main Draw can haplessly do.
We celebrate the warrior woman in the return of our "popular" segment where we salute the greats who never quite reached the top, and bleeding edge news from the juicing front, from Caitlin's Meldonium adventure to tortellini.
Sure, we talk about Wimbledon, but The Main Draw is for people who like to imagine which tennis stars will populate James Bond's universe or make up the next Battle of the Network Stars. You're welcome.
We take on all of the happenings OFF the court, such as: What do you do when the elder statesmen of the game don't behave? Where are each of us on our own personal parabolas? And forget the television, the best commentating is on the radio.
It's the most wonderful time of the year—The French Open—when the clay is red, the socks are dirty and the air is filled with accordion music. We check in with Novak Djokovic superfan Sean Rameswaram to get hyped about Roland Garros.
