WTF, Tennis? A Bonanza of Ridiculousness in 2016

1Dec

Grab your fine-toothed comb as we sift through the first half of the 2016 tennis season. From Vika and Kerber in Brisbane to Djokovic and Muguruza at Roland Garros, James and Jonathan recap the utter madness of tennis in between. Along the way, we remember Bud Collins, get tongue twisted about the Kitty Chiller chitter chatter, and are generally surprised by how much of the season we'd forgotten/blocked from memory. 

 

04:10 - Vika kicks things off in Brisbane 

05:40 - James' dalliance with being a Sloane Ranger

11:00 - Nole & Rafa get the ATP season underway

13:20 - Remembering Nole's superhuman stretch of success 

15:36 - Australian Open (the bullshit begins)

17:40 - Kerber saves MP in 1st Rd, contemplating the what ifs?

21:32 - Raonic loses to Murray SIX times in 2016!!!

25:54 - Venus wins #49 after an abominable January

28:12 - That wacky week in February

32:48 - That drab outfit, on that drab podium, with that drab conference furniture, and that drab carpet

36:10 - Kerber gets back on track with a little help from her friends

41:50 - Raymond Moore revisited

46:20 - Either the ball goes over the net or it doesn't (remembering Bud Collins)

51:50 - A week in the life of Serena Williams 

52:40 - Rafa feeling himself in April

61:24 - Kitty Chiller chitter chatter
