Four years ago, Jamie Murray had more doubles partners than months in a year, couldn’t reach the final of a futures tournament in Loughborough and looked as if he was going to retire. Now, he’s the World No.1
In the latest Tennis Podcast, Catherine Whitaker and David Law discuss his huge, history-making achievement, and that of Jo Konta and Heather Watson reaching the last 16 in Miami.
There’s a recap of the events that have followed since Novak Djokovic sparked an equal prize money debate a week ago, discussion of a rare occurrence - Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer withdrawing from a tournament through ill health, and memories of Miami, which used to be called the 5th Slam.
And listeners and presenters come together for a cathartic admission of their most rubbish tennis predictions, including ‘I picked Ryan Harrison for Top 10’, ‘I said Roger Federer would retire in 2008’, and ‘I thought Novak Djokovic would be a one-slam wonder’. Oops.
