Episode 44 is our Roland Garros preview. We start with the men's side, which got a whole lot more interesting a few weeks ago, with Rafa's resurgence, Andy's rebirth on clay, and Novak suffering a few setbacks. Next, enjoy our chat with Caitlin Thompson, co-founder of the new print-only Racquet Magazine and co-host of The Main Draw podcast.
