In this week's episode of the SI Tennis Beyond the Baseline Podcast, Sports Illustrated executive editor and host Jon Wertheim talks in-studio with Mary Carillo.

A former WTA player, Carillo discusses how she got into the media business, what she likes about her job and who was her biggest mentor. Carillo also talks about the Williams sisters, the privacy in their family and what 2016 will bring for the World No. 1. With the off-season beginning, Wertheim and Carillo talk about Novak Djokovic and why he sometimes doesn't get the credit he deserves. Carillo also tells Wertheim how she steers clear of conflicts of interest while covering tennis, how she remains neutral, why she loves covering the sport and more.
