Aus Open Day 13 - Wozniacki Dream Comes True; Halep’s Hopes Shattered Again After Classic; Federer vs. Cilic Preview
As Caroline Wozniacki walked by from television studio to television studio after claiming her long-awaited first Grand Slam title, Catherine Whitaker and David Law tried to do justice on The Tennis Podcast to an epic three-set tussle which had numerous storylines dripping with emotion. Where was the match won and lost? How did Wozniacki react after finally making her dream come true? And will Simona Halep ever get over the finish line in a Slam final herself? The asterisk of ‘never won a Grand Slam’ has been removed forever from Wozniacki’s bio, so is Halep now the best player never to have won a major title? It’s all discussed in the latest daily podcast from the Australian Open. Looking ahead to the men’s singles final on Sunday, what did Goran Ivanisevic tell the pod team he had said to Marin Cilic before his compatriot won his 2014 US Open clash with Roger Federer? And what does Goran think will happen this time? The experiences of Wayne Ferreira describing how he beat Federer many moons ago are recounted, and former World No.2 Alex Corretja drops by to explain how he managed to win matches against the great man. Both admit that Federer is a very different player today. On Sunday, the men’s singles final will be broadcast live on Eurosport, with coverage starting at 8am UK time. BBC Radio 5 Live will carry live commentary from 8.30am. The Tennis Podcast is produced daily throughout the Australian Open, presented by Catherine Whitaker (Eurosport) and David Law (BBC 5 Live), in association with Telegraph Sport and Eurosport.
