Serena's back! And who's in the Wimbledon Mix?

Ep. 993

Serena Williams is back! Catherine, David and Matt react to the news that she’s playing doubles in Eastbourne before heading to Wimbledon for singles. How did we feel when she announced her return? And how might she fare at Wimbledon? 

More good news followed this week when Rafael Nadal announced that his radio frequency ablation therapy had gone well and that he plans to play Wimbledon, but Naomi Osaka’s withdrawal and doubts over the fitness of Andy Murray and Emma Raducanu did dampen spirits. 

We cover all of that, review title-winning weeks for Matteo Berrettini, Hubert Hurkacz, Ons Jabeur and Beatriz Haddad Maia, and debate who is in the Wimbledon Mix.
