    Awoke my inner tennis nerd
    The hosts have deep knowledge, tremendous experience, great chemistry, and impeccable, original British accents to add that extra touch of goodness. I LOVE this podcast and thanks to it I've learned to appreciate players and aspects of the game I never paid any attention to. They awoke my inner tennis nerd and now I'm hooked. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

    Insightful and Fun...
    David, Catherine and Matt bring their Tennis passion in every episode. They always have great insights and bring the action to life. The podcast are particularly good when you miss a day of one of the slams. They love the game and often have great color on players. They always seem like they are having fun no matter how late at night they tape the show. Their creativity during the pandemic has been very uplifting....keep it going!
  • mattmoff
    This is my favorite podcast about tennis, by leaps and bounds. Each installment feels like you’re meeting your friends at a pub to discuss your favorite sport and have a few laughs. I’m always so excited for the next installment!

    Best tennis podcast (especially during pandemic)
    Love the hosts and all their British humor and speculation on the psyche of all tennis players. Always puts a smile😊 on my face!

    Doesn’t get any better!
    They are the best in the business! Informative, funny, and collaborative.

    Katherine Needs To Go
    Best tennis podcast out there, but Katherine has been getting more and more opinionated & annoying on feminists issues and it has begun to affect the overall chemistry of the show. Please stick to the tennis!
  • Goodmusicsupporter
    Absolutely love listening to them! Informative, well put together, charming personalities, great humor! So glad to have found a tennis podcast and an excellent one at that!

    Tennis talks is what we come here for...
    I used to listen to this pod religiously, not anymore. I stop by occasionally. I get that Catherine is passionate about dogs and politics, but at times it is a bit much. Tennis talks is what we come here for. I know the answer is to turn it off or skip though those segments, I do. Matt is awesome, such a great addition to the team.

    Best tennis pod out there
    I absolutely love listening to Catherine, David, and Matt chat and bicker- the tennis chat is just a bonus! Learning so much as a newish fan to the sport, particularly with their tennis relived shows. Keep up the good work!!

    Billie Jean King
    What a great interview Katherine she is gracious smart intelligent and just an Icon! I liked when she said she didn’t care about Grand Slams but wondered what if she cared. She cared about the bigger picture and Tennis and especially the WTA should be grateful for it! Thank you

    Good content
    Edit: I really liked listening to this podcast at first. I listened to it a lot including so many old episodes. I like the banter between three. Good humor. Good natured. Anyway, I couldn’t listen to it frequently anymore. Hosts read too much between the lines when there is nothing, little partial and too much credit to their favorite players, generalizing tennis players to be selfish and not interesting etc.. I recently discovered this podcast and I am fairly new to tennis obsession. I love listening to three of them talk. Still I love all the insight and how the matches and players are analyzed. I will continue listening to it.

    “Tennis Aggro” ?
    I snicker a lot when listening to this podcast and it has definitely been excellent in the lockdown. But one fault: what is tennis aggro? Must be aggressive stuff said by players?

    I love this podcast!!!!
    I discovered this podcast in the beginning of the Covid pandemic in April 2020. It is so entertaining and enjoyable to hear people talk about tennis and love it as much as I do! I am from Texas and I adore the British sense of humor :) keep up the great work y’all!
  • ajcurry_
    So good
    Listened since the summer of 2019 but this is literally the only podcast that has actually improved in the quarantine remote record era. It's soooo good now, the dynamic between the three of them has never been better. And this is when there's been less tennis than ever.
  • @jay_lass
    Likable and reliable
    This is one of those podcasts where the smart interesting one doesn’t get enough air time but generally very entertaining. Giving them an extra point because the audio fidelity is good.

    Pretty good!

    Great pod for tennis lovers
    I listen to many tennis podcasts, and this one is my favorite. Their knowledge, good nature, professionalism, and humor make it a fun listen. Plus, the daily pods during big events are invaluable!
  • PJEberlyn
    Thoroughly enjoyable and informative
    I enjoy the banter between Catherine and David. The sobering nature of Matt’s contributions and stats to the conversation is welcome. Overall, a great listen!
  • bericjohnson
    The Best!
    I love The Tennis Podcast! Best analysis I’ve found on tennis, fun, and witty, David, Catherine, and Matt hit a grand slam every time!
  • Yorbo456
    Too Much Politics from Catherine
    Catherine frequently injects her political views into podcasts. I don't listen to tennis podcasts to hear the hosts talk about gender politics and especially not world politics. I don't care that Catherine is a liberal progressive, as she's stated on air (I might even agree with her once in awhile), but save the political rants for a non-tennis related podcast. Most followers of sport want to keep politics out of it. The good: All 3 hosts can often have good insights regarding tennis (especially Matt). When they stick to tennis, it's an enjoyable podcast. But, too many episodes get clouded with Catherine's opinions about feminism, world politics and even why she isn't a fan of certain players.

    Fun and insightful commentary
    Thank you for all the late nights to produce these podcasts - especially during Grand Slams. I find myself really looking forward to your in depth discussions and catty chats about the previous day’s events. David and Catherine are superb at analyzing the players’ performance and how they react to various situations. But I’m also quite impressed with Matt - for someone so young (the dude is 24), he’s quite sophisticated and wise beyond his years. All 3 of you bring something unique to the table and the end result is a fun, insightful, and addictive podcasts for tennis fans. Really appreciate all the hard work.

    Waiting for a best-of episode
    I’m listening to this podcast for the tennis commentary, but also for the chitchat of the trio. There should be a compilation of the best moments at the end of the year, including all the funniest exchanges between these three. One of my favorites so far was when Catherine was looking for a gender-neutral word for “ballsy”. Keep up the good work, and please give us a best-of episode!

    My Must Listen
    I have been a longtime casual fan of tennis, but once I started listening to The Tennis Podcast a couple years ago, I got hooked on the sport. They keep me energized and interested in tennis year round, sharing stories beyond the big 3. The rapport among David, Katharine, and Matt is great (though you may need to listen for a few episodes to settle into their banter and friendship). Their Grand Slam coverage in particular is awesome, with daily recaps and is my must listen podcast every morning.
  • Squeakykiki
    The success of this podcast has more to do with the fact that there just aren’t many tennis podcasts to listen to. Full of cringey moments, usually care of Catherine. But what choice do we have? :/
  • Susiequeuesy
    The best
    I love this podcast. They do such a good job and work so hard. The recent episodes on Arthur Ashe and Althea Gibson were especially impressive.
  • stavan7
    Thank you!
    Thank you David, Catherine and Matt aka Team Tennis (kind of like the Avengers, but cooler) for being the podcast conversation I look forward to most every week! Sending you my best from Antwerp, Belgium (best known for beer, chocolate, waffles, frites and as of 20 Oct 2019... Andy Murray) 🤷‍♂️💪🙌
  • narcolepticad
    Great podcast for tennis lovers and the casual fan alike.
    Love their banter, knowledge, camaraderie, humor, passion, stories, and perspectives.
  • Bond83$3883
    It’s ok
    It’s ok but their constant attempts to be “woke” get annoying. They should talk more about tennis.
  • your voices are sweet music
    Thank you
    Truly a perfect trio in discussing and sharing their stories, their descriptions, and thoughts. I’m talking about Catherine, David , and Mats. The going back in time discussing the Wimbledon classics has brought tears and laughs and the nervous feeling of watching those Matches ... thank you
  • Shiv1997
    Very informative
    As a younger tennis fan, gives me great perspective about the greats and gives unique stories about he varied past of tennis
  • ao kkkkkkkkkert
    Best podcast among other tennis (non-technical) podcasts!
    I have been enjoying this for a long time now. Best podcast by far compared to other tennis related podcasts.
  • nickname 971638910
    My favorite podcast
    I really appreciate how the team has been keeping us entertained during the pandemic by reviewing tennis history. I for one enjoy David’s Fun Facts. Thanks guys.
  • ZeeBeast12378904
    Great podcast and content for true tennis fans
    Podcast does both a great job covering current tennis events and referencing past history of the sport. A must listen for any tennis fan, and one of the best tennis podcast out there right now.
  • ms-julieta
    This podcast reignited my love of tennis
    This fabulous trio captured my attention as I experimented with different tennis podcasts. The others fell away and David, Catherine and Matt reign supreme. Listening to their discussion of past matches is a lesson in tennis history—carries me through our Covid sports drought. ~Jane, a fan in Chapel Hill
  • very upset, NYC
    Best sports podcast, period.
    That says it all. Dynamic between the team is v good - that is the key. But the research and unique insights they have into players, matches etc is incredible to me. It’s unputdownable podcasting. Best I’ve listened to. PLEASE KEEP GOING!
  • Patent Law Blog Reader
    grade A+ tennis podcast
    This is far and away my favorite tennis podcast, and possibly my favorite podcast full stop. Nuanced and in-depth coverage of my favorite sport. Engaging, insightful, and witty hosts with impressive insider access. Fresh and fearless perspectives on tennis issues on and off the court. High number and high quality interviews with the greats of the game. No competition with this podcast.
  • NicoleMDB
    Wonderful podcast always, but critical for any tennis fan missing tennis in 2020!
    Absolutely love the tennis podcast. It is witty, thoughtful and informative. David, Catherine and Matt feel like friends who love to chat about all things tennis as much as you do. During this break from tennis, they are doing all they can to keep tennis alive for fans, and their throwback episodes have been wonderful. No need to watch along if you don’t have time, their commentary and recaps are certainly enough to make the content fun and engaging. This is a must download for any tennis fan!
  • Lesleybh
    I love this tennis podcast. Informative and amusing at the same time. I love the english chatter, plus really great content.
  • Vivek (Vik) Kumra
    The Tennis Podcast
    This is my very favorite tennis related podcast. As an American, while I totally understand their slight British focus, I would prefer to it be without that. Having said that it is definitely not overwhelming at all and as I said, this podcast is my go to.
  • Tcty
    Witty and informative
    Great podcast guys, love listening to David, Catherine and Matt.
  • kyrparis
    A must-listen to for tennis fans! The best trio in all sports podcasting
    Listening to this podcast is a joy. The hosts are fun, have the ability to deliver real insights and above all love the game. Listening to The Tennis Podcast has made me appreciate the nuances of the game more when I watch it. I eagerly await every episode.
  • SvenMcA
    Tennis relived
    Loved the tennis relived, such a great idea for bringing people together remotely!!
  • Spiderstew1
    The Carillo episodes
    So enjoyed your broadcasts w her. What a joy. I’ve been following the sport since the late 60’s, and so good to hear her take on players that I followed growing up. And, she’s hilarious. I especially liked the Bud Collins discussion...when Mary spoke of his unique perspectives, I think I remember that it was Collins who came up with the term “bagel” as a verb. And now it’s part of tennis scoring vernacular. Great job all around!

    What entertainment, what great stories and hilarious impressions. I love this podcast and the 2 parter with Mary was wonderful. I look forward to you all every week. 😂😂😂
  • KVoe5468
    Love The Tennis Podcast
    I always enjoy this podcast. Not only do I learn a lot of things about professional tennis that I wouldn't otherwise know, but I also frequently laugh out loud. Thank you 3. It's been a pleasure to listen.
  • brkona
    Amazing interview. Not to be missed!👏 She is so honest and lovely, how can you not admire her? I've become a huge fan. Great job.
  • Jimkinir
    Rather self-satisfied
    I would prefer less self-indulgence and more thoughtful, informed reflection. Some useful information here, but other podcasts have presenters who are, on the whole, more likeable people.
  • LizzyListening
    The BEST Tennis Podcast!
    These 3 are exceptionally knowledgeable, witty, and insightful! My only wish is that they would provide live big match commentary for those of us in America!
  • BrodyB22
    The (best) Tennis Podcast out there
    I have listened to this podcast for 2 years. The behind the scenes reporting is fabulous. The information is second to none. The way they make it all entertaining is the secret spice of the recipe. I love this trio and the chemistry that they posses. I want to go on a 2 beer and chips date with Catherine, assuming the eye infection is all cleared up! Cheers to another great year.
