French Open: Week 2 Washout; Super-Coach McEnroe; Rafa’s Pain; Murray vs. Gasquet Memories; Who Is Shelby Rogers?

After play was called off for the day because of bad weather on Monday – the first complete washout for 16 years at the French Open – the Telegraph’s Tennis Correspondent Simon Briggs joined Catherine Whitaker on the Tennis Podcast in Paris to discuss week one and look ahead to week two.

Listen to the show –

Will the tournament get back on track, or is a third Monday in store?

What does the future hold for Rafael Nadal after his shock withdrawal because of a wrist injury?

What will new super-coach John McEnroe bring to the career of Milos Raonic?

How is Andy Murray looking now that his tournament is back on track? Memories of Murray vs. Gasquet 2008 at Wimbledon abound.

And who is Shelby Rogers, and how did she get to the quarterfinals?

Whitaker and Briggs wade through it all, before wading back to their respective hotels.
