Chanda Rubin on making the most of the new normal
Play • 37 min

This week we catch up with Tennis Channel's own Chanda Rubin and get her take on covering tennis in the new normal. While she has been in the US Open and Roland Garros bubbles, she will cover the upcoming Australian Open from the new Los Angeles studio.

Rubin brings a lot of personal experience to her current broadcasting gig after reaching as high as No. 6 in the world, winning the 1996 Australian Open doubles crown, and claiming seven career WTA titles. The Melbourne heat suited her just fine as she reached the 1996 singles semifinals in her best Grand Slam showing.

The 44-year-old checks in from her home where she's juggling two children, a (mostly) virtual broadcasting career, and her own YouTube show with Zina Garrison called "Game. Set.Chat!". She gives insight into how she launched her WTA and broadcast careers (Roger Federer was her very first on-court interview), and discusses the challenges facing players in 2021.

The Time Is Nao
The 2021 Australian Open is in the books! After months of speculation over whether the tournament would even happen, Naomi Osaka and Novak Djokovic are the last two players standing, holding old friends Daphne and Norman. We take you through the latter rounds of both singles draws before tackling a couple of the bigger issues for us this tournament: gambling taking over the tennis coverage and Hawkeye Live being force fed to us. If you’re still with us by this point, we run through a few odds and ends, from G.E.M.S. Life’s break to some of our fashion hits and misses! 2:00 Women’s final: Naomi d. Jenny(fer) Brady for Slam #4 15:00 Women’s quarters and semis: it’s a lot of commentator emotion for a perfectly legitimate medical timeout; Naomi d. Serena 27:30 Men’s final: Djokovic wins #18, beating Medvedev in a not-great final (well, great for Novak) 30:55 Men’s quarters and semis: Grigor, why??? Plus Tsitsipas gets another breakthrough, qualifier Karatsev makes the semis 36:00 The injury, the bizarre trophy presentation, the endless drama 42:45 Doubles! Mertens/Sabalenka win & take the #1 ranking; Krejcikova and Ram each make 2 finals 45:35 I got issues: Gambling and tennis media; Hawkeye Live - why are commentators 100% in the bag for it? 59:00 Odds and ends - Sofia’s appendectomy won’t get in her way 65:25 Alexis, T*riac, locals, and the S*ndgren show 74:45 Fashions: Nike finally does it! Beautiful gowns!

Locked On Raptors - Daily Podcast On The Toronto Raptors
Locked On Podcast Network, Sean Woodley
Raptors lose to Heat in Kyle Lowry's return, but the schedule looks plush from here
In Episode 893, Sean goes solo to talk about the Raptors' 116-108 loss to Miami in Kyle Lowry's return to the lineup before taking a look at the newly release second half schedule. He starts out by saying a not at all fond farewell to the Miami Heat for another regular season, after they continued to be a thorn in Toronto's -- and Pascal Siakam's -- side on Wednesday, while also recognizing the brilliance of Kyle Lowry after he put up 24-7-8 on 9-of-13 shooting in his first game back after missing the last four-plus. Next, Sean takes a look at, dare I say, some signs of optimism as it relates to the Raptors solving Miami's annoying zone. OG Anunoby is the key, and if not for a few ill-timed screw-ups, the Raptors might have picked it apart well enough to win. Lastly, Sean takes a glance at the newly released second-half schedule for the team, which portends a lot of winning over the next month or so if current patterns hold.
