Play • 43 min

The U.S. Open crowned its winners this weekend. But for a lot of fans, this year’s competition was less about who won, and more about a player who wasn’t even involved in the final matches.

Guest: Wesley Morris, a critic at large for The New York Times and co-host of Times podcast “Still Processing.”
