Woz Wallops WTA Finals Field

1Nov

101 episodes in and we're still finding lots to talk about. We praise Caroline Wozniacki for her career-best performance as she beats the best and wins Singapore. Plus, we discuss Venus' season, and the knocks on her for her press conference performances, sorting through some resentments and biases on all sides. We also take on Hingis' shocking retirement, Guy Forget shading the eff out of Roger Federer, and end with an impassioned #SeeWhatHadHappenedWas on Kevin Spacey.
