On this week's episode of the SI Tennis Beyond the Baseline Podcast, Sports Illustrated executive editor and host Jon Wertheim talks with Justin Gimelstob.

A former ATP player and current broadcaster, ATP board member and coach of World No. 11 John Isner, Gimelstob talks with Wertheim about his various jobs in tennis—and they debate on these roles in tennis and general conflicts of interest in the sport. Gimelstob also talks about his relationship with Roger Federer and shares some special stories about his experiences with the Swiss over the years. Wertheim and Gimelstob also talk about the match-fixing scandal that dominated the conversation at the 2016 Australian Open and Gimelstob shares his opinion on the subject. He also talks openly about the 2008 incident that was one of the more regrettable moments of his career, what it's like to coach John Isner, how long he thinks Novak Djokovic's ATP domination will continue and more.
