Beyond the Baseline Podcast: Wertheim checks in from Melbourne

Thursday January 28th, 2016

In this week's episode of the SI Tennis Beyond the Baseline Podcast, Sports Illustrated executive editor and host Jon Wertheim checks in from Melbourne from the Australian Open. 

Wertheim checks in with tennis producer Jamie Lisanti from Melbourne Park as the 2016 Australian Open moves into the final days of the tournament. The pair discusses the Novak Djokovic vs. Roger Federer semifinals match—what were the turning points in the match? Did the roof closure on Rod Laver have an impact on either player's momentum or game? You'll also hear clips from Djokovic after the match in his interview with Jim Courier and Wertheim discusses how these moments are now a part of the sport, especially at the Australian Open. Wertheim and Lisanti also talk about Serena Williams's dominating win over Agnieszka Radwanska, Angelique Kerber's run to the final, their predictions for the winners of the 2016 Australian Open and more.
