Miami underway, Murray and Djokovic hurt, and what should tennis do with on-court coaching?

As Miami got underway and concern grew for the health of Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic, the subject of on-court coaching came under the spotlight, and the Tennis Podcast team are debating it in this week’s show.

Is it time for the men’s game to follow the lead of the women’s game and allow a mic’d up Ivan Lendl on to the court to tell Murray what’s what?

Is it a ‘bad look’ for the sport, as many commentators have deemed it, for only female players to be seen asking for help on court?

Should it be taken out of the sport altogether, or should tennis go much further and allow coaching from the stands between points? It’s all discussed in the latest Tennis Podcast.

The health of Murray and Djokovic is discussed, the chances of Simona Halep, Jo Konta and the various other runners and riders in Miami are covered, and one of the show’s presenters reveals details of a scarcely credible tennis victory. There is also reaction to the latest Nick Kyrgios Twitter Q & A.

The Tennis Podcast is a weekly, downloadable tennis radio show presented by Catherine Whitaker (Eurosport) and David Law (BBC 5 Live, BT Sport), with daily editions during the Grand Slams. It is produced in association with Telegraph Sport and Eurosport.
