Todd Woodbridge: ‘Kyrgios’ Most Mature Performance Yet, But Murray’s My Title Pick’; Djokovic In Trouble – Courtside View; Clare Balding’s 20 Years Covering Wimbledon
The Tennis Podcast has produced daily, downloadable shows from Wimbledon, featuring reviews, previews and a mix of guests such as Clare Balding, Todd Woodbridge and Annabel Croft.
In today’s show, nine-time Wimbledon doubles champion Woodbridge tells us that Nick Kyrgios produced ‘the most mature performance of his career’ to defeat Dustin Brown in five sets on Friday.
“He had a moment when he lost it emotionally in the third set, but he pulled himself back,’ Woodbridge said. ‘When he came back from the rain delay, he looked controlled, focused and determined. It was probably his strongest mental performance and it was the most mature Kyrgios that we’ve seen. I was impressed with that.”

How does Woodbridge think Kyrgios would do if he met Andy Murray in the fourth round on Monday?
“I do think they will meet in the last 16, but although I don’t think Murray will be liking that draw, he would still go in as a heavy favourite,” Woodbridge told The Tennis Podcast. “Murray is still that little bit too experienced for Kyrgios to blow through him, which is what Nick likes to do. Murray’s my pick for the tournament.”
We also hear from BBC 5 Live commentator Philip Studd, who sat a few feet from Novak Djokovic as the World No.1 went two sets down against Sam Querrey. Studd believes the end is nigh for the Serbian at Wimbledon when they resume at 12.
Yesterday, BBC presenter Clare Balding joined presenters Catherine Whitaker and David Law to talk about her 20 years spent covering Wimbledon for BBC Radio 5 Live and television, and other guests over the course of the week have included Annabel Croft, Jonathan Overend and Simon Briggs and Charlie Eccleshare from Telegraph Sport.
The Tennis Podcast is produced by LawSports in association with Telegraph Sport.
