Under the fog of war -- a shocking invasion of sovereign Ukraine by an aggressor in Russia, the ATP's 27th #1 player in the world is Russia's Daniil Medvedev. While his childhood dream comes true, it's bittersweet when many are not happy with the actions of his homeland.

The guys cover this history of the ATP #1 and how monumental Daniil's achievement is after 18 years of 'Big 3' (plus Andy Murray) dominance. 

Should Russian players like Medvedev, winner in two consecutive weeks Andrey Rublev and other Russian players be forced to speak out on the war launched by their home country? Should their be sanctions to ban Russian tennis players like those imposed in team sports like Fifa has done by banning Russia from competing in the World Cup?

The guys cover some of the week's other stories, including Nadal's continued dominance, Cam Norris, the thickness and success of Jiri Vesely this week (downing a returning Novak Djokovic to reach the final).

For the ladies, Iga takes her fourth title and Sloane returns to the winner's circle.

The guys start the show with some updates as they begin to hit the courts again, including the start of Jason's doubles league with a new lefty partner!
