Season 2 Finale: Tennis Is Messy AF

12Dec

Episode 63 marks the finale of our second season. We spend a good chunk of time thanking some of our supporters by name. (Please forgive us if we missed you - it wasn't intentional!) We have lots of fun chit-chatting about the petty, messy, trying, and frivolous moments in tennis this past year. We also take you back to a once-controversial subject in tennis: the Williams sisters' hair, and its role as a signifier of their outsider status.
