Beyond the Baseline Podcast: Justin Gimelstob previews Wimbledon 2016

Friday June 24th, 2016

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. 

Just hours after the Wimbledon 2016 men's and women's draws were released, Gimelstob calls in from London to preview the tournament before its start on Monday, June 27. A commentator for Tennis Channel for Wimbledon, Gimelstob discusses the highlights of the draw and the matches he is most looking forward to. He talks about Novak Djokovic's chances at a title, who could possibly beat him and his chances at the calendar Grand Slam this season. The pair also discusses Milos Raonic's chances, the new addition of John McEnroe to his team and how it will affect him at Wimbledon, Roger Federer's return after missing the French Open due to injury and Andy Murray's chances at a second Wimbledon title.
