Eight months ago, Angelique Kerber was match point down in the first round of the Australian Open. Eight months on, having saved that match point, she is the Australian Open and US Open champion, the World No.1, a Wimbledon runner-up, and an Olympic silver-medalist.
After a classic 3-set tussle between Kerber and Karolina Pliskova, the Tennis Podcast’s team of Eurosport presenter Catherine Whitaker, BBC Radio 5 Live commentator David Law and Telegraph tennis correspondent Simon Briggs caught up to review it all while racing for the bus back to Manhattan.
How has Kerber gone from solid Top Ten player to World No.1 inside a year?
What next for Pliskova after her impressive wins over Venus and Serena Williams, and narrow defeat in the final?
And who will win the men’s final between Novak Djokovic and Stan Wawrinka?
The podcast team debate it all, and review a second Grand Slam doubles title in 2016 for Jamie Murray.
The men’s singles final will be broadcast live on Eurosport from 8.30pm UK time, with live commentary on BBC Radio 5 Live Sports Extra from 9pm.
The Tennis Podcast is produced in association with Telegraph Sport.
Presented by David Law and Catherine Whitaker, The Tennis Podcast is a downloadable tennis radio show featuring weekly chat, big-name guests, interviews and daily editions at the Grand Slam tournaments.
