    Listening to tennis podcasts-
    Refreshing, entertaining, informative. Tennis enthusiasts &tennis community should listen to get in depth info on players tennis folk off the court.

    Great and in depth
    Great podcast that flows really good between Nina and Irina. You can tell they both have broadcast experience and are growing quite a following. Top notch team and I look forward to seeing them become not only big hits with the tennis community, but the general population!

    Great run at Houston Irina!
    I watched you play two singles matches in some crazy Texas weather. You looked happier on court than I remember and it definitely showed in your tennis. Great job

    Great hosts, great guests
    Love this podcast! If you live tennis, you’ll love this podcast. A great variety of subjects and the hosts clearly know a lot about the sport. Glad I stumbled upon it!!

    Decent, could be better
    Nina does a solid job of keeping the focus on the interviewee. While I find it a bit awkward when the subject cracks a joke and Nina is dead silent, you can tell she knows how to interview a person. Irina is clearly not an experienced interviewer. She spends way too much time talking about herself and keeps interrupting the subject. But overall an improvement on the deadly dull Ed and Steve.

    Great writer but podcast lacks crispness
    I love Jon’s writing on SI: it’s thoughtful; witty; and balanced. This podcast, however, doesn’t have the same punch. First, the production sounds almost Wayne’s World-esque. I think a little polish is in order. Second, I think Jon could be better prepared to interview his guests instead of having chummy conversations with them or making the conversation about Jon. Seems like a missed opportunity to really help the listener hear from the guests. My $0.02.

    Best Tennis Podcast
    As a player and tennis fan, this podcast is a great listen. It’s fun and easy to listen to. It also provides great insight into the world of the players!!!

    The new hosts aren’t very talented
    I used to enjoy this podcast but Nina and the other co-host have the charisma of an apple. I don’t want to be mean but they are just painful to listen to. Monotone voices, zero broadcasting experience (at least let’s hope so). It’s a shame because it used to be pretty good but I have unsubscribed. I miss Ed McGrogan and Steve. This Nina person is just terrible.

    Quite possibly the greatest my ears have ever seen
    I promise I don’t know the hosts, but they sound hot AF. Plus they know their sportz. Super chill and insightful. I never miss a pod. Did I mention how super chill they are. I LOOOOVE tennis! And I LOOOOVE this podcast. It’s sooo chill. Tsis tsis tsss

    Comprehensivel borking
    The pair seem knowledgeable but present in a manner that is largely devoid of debate, humor and thus engagement. That is not the formula for a winning podcast. Wertheim also likes to tease about sources he prefers not to name.

    A tennis eargasm
    So glad I found this podcast. As a tennis fan, it’s hard to find a quality audio source for easy, on the go listening while riding the subway, etc. This is perfect. The hosts are knowledgeable and likable. Love tuning in to catch up on results and news. A+!

    Newcomer of the year...huh?
    I tried to enjoy this podcast but.....Newcomer of the year? Michael Mhoh and/or Tsitsipas? You begin by saying the category is someone who has completed their first full season on tour and then award it to Mhoh - whom you note has been a around for a few years already and Tsitsipas who was at the 2107 Next Gen finals and played a full season last year. Huh? And why does it matter what type of body a player has when Tennis has always been the sport where the racquet equalizes body diffs ie. Rosewell, Hewitt, Goffin, Henin and Halep. How could you not even mention the 19 yo Alex de Minaur who just won the ATP newcomer of the year award voted on by the players Alex improved from #208 to #31 this season. From 2017 AO wildcard playoff to possibly being seeded at the AO a year later. I guess he doesn’t have the right body type, like Mhoh, whom, I repeat he beat recently.

    Need better audio quality
    Great content but poor, inconsistent audio quality makes it hard to listen. The recent episode from Tuesday at the US Open, Irina’s audio is barely there. A great podcast can’t be appreciated if the audio quality is bad.
  • Tennistud99
    Great insights, refreshing honesty and fun topics
    It’s cool to have a podcast that merges a player’s insight with a journalist. Nina and Irina have an obvious rapport, and aren’t afraid to share their truthful opinions. It’s like we’re on tour with them!
  • Rogermaria25
    Great new Podcast
    I love the new podcast with players perspective. Having players gives us more of an insight on the tour with fresh personalities! In the future it will be nice to have guest i players to join conversation
  • Dpslm
    Very engaging
    Very nice conversation between Irina Falconi and host Nina. Interesting questions and lots of good information in Irina’s intelligent, thoughtful answers.
  • MLWilly
    Great insight
    Really interesting and well informed. Keep up the good work!
  • Luvthebirds1
    No more episodes?
    Anyone know why there are no recent podcasts? Miss this podcast!

    Tennis in 10
    Really liked this format of daily summaries, especially for the women's draw as the field was less familiar. It provided good context for the matchups. Overall timely and concise analysis was very enjoyable. Hope it will be deployed for Wimbledon, US Open, etc.

    Keeps Going downhill
    French open daily podcasts are maybe too much here. As others have said, spouting wrong facts quite often and it's just not that enjoyable.
  • Nemo880
    Issues outweigh the small amount of value
    This is not a good tennis podcast. The second star in the rating is because the hosts are reasonably (though not overly) knowledgeable about tennis. But they both sound as if they have had little to no broadcasting training, sound the same, and speak in a dull monotone throughout. Unless you are looking for a cure for insomnia, steer clear. Also, a pet peeve of mine is when commentators don’t take the time to learn how to properly pronounce player’s names. I understand it when someone is a new player making a breakthrough, but in the most recent episode (22 Oct 2016) they butcher both Muguruza and Pliskova’s names- big time players in the WTA finals. Either laziness or they don’t care, but in my book it’s just disrespectful. These guys should stick to writing stuff.

    better than nothing
    There is a paucity of tennis podcasts available (compared to more popular sports), so I guess you take what you can get. The analysis is okay, if conventional. The commentators are pretty humorless and sometimes make mistakes (i.e., in the latest episode, saying Wawrinka beat Djokovic in the semifinals at AO14. It was the quarterfinals; he beat Berdych in the semis). The one thing that is really annoying is the frequent mispronunciation of players’ names—in particular “Fognini.” I don’t even like Fabio Fognini, but it is incredibly grating to hear the Ed McGrogan say "Fog-nini." Also, “Ber-ditch.” Seriously? AAARGH please learn how to say the names! How hard is it??? I really wish there were better tennis podcasts out there. Tennis coverage in general seems to lag behind other sports in terms of intelligent commentary. Don’t even get me started on the TV coverage.

    Good Topics
    Interesting topics and guests. Host is horrible though. Good luck counting how many times he says "kind of"
  • Degreez01
    Not enough!
    Great ideas, great tennis talk, however not nearly enough podcasts or even up to date let alone the average 15 min talk time- these guys know alot about tennis, is that really all they can offer?
  • Quel Thalas
    More Podcasts!
    There needs to be more, up-to-date podcasts available.
  • Djw297
    Great podcast
    Most entertaining and informative podcast for tennis fans. Keep up the good work boys! I'm especially a fan of Ed McGrogan, I can't wait for each new episode.
  • Vichammer
    U guys rock!! Love listening to podcasts en route to work, matches, etc... Keep it up:-)!!
  • thefedererofpapertoss
    When did this podcast become a monthly?
    Hey guys, I love the informative and intelligent tennis conversation, but why do you make us wait so long between episodes? We're coming off a Davis Cup weekend in which the US played a home tie but you haven't released a podcast in over three weeks. We still haven't heard your takes on the Wimbledon finals. What gives? I'd love to give more stars because I can't find this type of content anywhere else, but you've gotta give us something once a week or so.
  • trampled on
    Informative and Entertaining
    I really look forward to each new podcast. The commentary is thoughtful and often thought-provoking in a really good way.
  • Let Fanta
    love it
    I enjoy every podcast and the analysis provided. Would love to hear it more frequently and to focus some time on up and coming players on the ITF and US Pro circuits.
  • Shan-Yu
    These podcasts are absolutely fantastic! And check out their website! It's full of live scores and stories about the world's best! Like Rafael(:
  • Singasong3728;718
    Thanks for doing daily coverage of the US Open!!! That has been great. I like the tone of your show - nice and even. Great job.
  • triciafitz
    Just what I have been looking for
    I signed on for the podcasts a month ago and I have been very pleased. I enjoy the level of detail of the discussions. Half the time I am nodding along and half the time I am listening carefully because these guys have a lot of insight. If you follow the sport closely you should join in as well.
  • cmslapis
    Fun podcast, goes well with Tennis Connected
    Pete Bodo is a buzz-kill sometimes, but that's no surprise. I appreciate the mix of ATP and WTA discussion, and really, it's just great to hear people discuss tennis at all! Thanks for doing these.

    Great Podcast
    Good commentary and debates. Maybe some player interviews eventually?
