After a week break, the guys return and there's a shit ton to talk about. The biggest story of the week was the fan heckling of Naomi Osaka during her 2nd round loss to Kudermetova 6-0, 6-4. The female fan yelled out 'you suck' multiple times before Kudermetova's service game, leading to a discussion between Naomi and the umpire. The incident clearly shook her and impacted the result. The guys reflect on her journey with mental health, the inappropriate behaviour of fans, and how the 2018 US Open Final might have impacted her reaction in the match

The guys weigh in on news that Wimbledon may ban Russian players like Daniil Medvedev is they don't offer some assurance that they denounce Vladimir Putin's regime... is that fair?
And Serena says she would go to jail for doing what Zverev did... would Serena receive more punishment and backlash for similar behaviour?
