French Open Marks Transition in Tennis

  • Rafael Nadal, ‘The King of Clay,’ will compete for his 15th French Open title when the competition starts Sunday.
  • Catherine Whitaker and David Law join the show to unpack the end of the Big Three era of tennis, and what’s ahead for the sport.
Susan Mullane-USA TODAY Sports

The French Open begins Sunday in what will be a swan song for Rafael Nadal, who dominated the event like no one before. His exit brings tennis closer to the end of the Big Three era, as it looks to kindle fandom in upcoming stars. Catherine Whitaker and David Law, hosts of The Tennis Podcast, join the show to unpack this moment for the sport.

Plus, the WNBA is headed north of the border, the Department of Justice could alter the ticketing market, and we may be headed toward the NBA’s first nine-figure annual salary.
