What else can be said other than tennis seems quite alright in the hands of 20 year old Iga Swiatek and 18 year old Carlos Alcaraz. 

Iga becomes the first woman in no one knows how long (the guys ask for a fact check on this) to win four straight tournaments in a row, proving a dominant #1. Alcaraz for his part is dominating in his own right. He defeated Tsitsipas in a tense QF match-up before taking out De Minaur in a 3 hr 38 min marathon in the semis. Later that afternoon, he would defeat his countryman PCB to take his 3rd title in 2022 on home soil in Barcelona. 

Rising to #9 in the world, he makes his way into the Top 10 at the same age (a reminder, he's 18) and after winning the very same tournament as one Rafa Nadal (who did it back in 2005). That year, Rafa beat his fellow countryman Juan Carlos Ferraro, who happens to be Alcaraz's coach. The circle of Spanish Tennis life.

The guys also cover:

  • Jason's random pairing with a club player... and said player's subsequent coaching
  • Aldwin's run in with a listener at Pegasus
  • All the stories from Stuttgart and Barcelona
  • Rublev takes the title in Serbia over Djokovic, who's dealing with a mystery illness
  • An event took place in Istanbul with Potpova taking it.
