Beyond the Baseline Podcast: Previewing the 2017 French Open with Arantxa Sanchez Vicario

Thursday May 25th, 2017

On the Beyond the Baseline Podcast, Sports Illustrated executive editor, Tennis Channel commentator and host Jon Wertheim takes fans between the lines with tennis commentary and exclusive interviews with the top players and newsmakers on the ATP and WTA tours.

On this week's episode, Wertheim talks with former tennis player and three-time French Open champion Arantxa Sanchez Vicario about the 2017 French Open. Vicario discusses what the tournament means to her after winning three of her four career Grand Slam titles in Paris, as a Spanish player and as one of the youngest winners of the Roland Garros women's title, after she defeated then-World No. 1 Steffi Graf at the 1989 French Open at the age of 17. Wertheim and Vicario also talk about Rafael Nadal and his chances at winning the title in Paris this year, which women's players have a shot at the title, and more.
