SI Tennis Podcast: Davenport on Serena's season, Djokovic, WTA Finals

Wednesday October 21st, 2015

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

Keeping with a new tradition on the Beyond the Baseline Podcast, Davenport joins the show for the first time since the U.S. Open in August. Since her last appearance, Wertheim asks: What was the most surprising change on Tour: Stacey Allaster's resignation, Serena Williams's loss at the U.S. Open or Serena's decision to shut down her season in October? Davenport discusses why she believes Serena's choice to skip the Asian swing and the WTA Finals is a wise one and what she would tell her as a coach. The pair also talks about World No. 1 Novak Djokovic, who is on a roll since winning in New York. Among other topics, Wertheim and Davenport also talk about Ashleigh Barty, the former Australian tennis star who is now playing cricket.
