US Open Day 12 - Nadal, Anderson Fire Back To Meet In Final; Stephens vs. Keys - A women’s singles final preview

Rafael Nadal will contest his 23rd Grand Slam final and Kevin Anderson his first when they clash in the climax to the US Open on Sunday, and The Tennis Podcast team convened after their semifinals to look ahead. Presenter David Law was joined by Telegraph tennis correspondent Simon Briggs and former Top 50 player Jeff Tarango to talk about the point at which Nadal gained the upper hand against Juan Martin del Potro. Was Nadal's comeback all about him, or was Del Potro's fatigue a factor? How did Anderson go from quiet, laid-back baseline to fist-pumping, roaring warrior on the court? And what will happen when they meet in the final? The women's final will feature two players yet to compete in a Grand Slam decider - Americans Madison Keys and Sloane Stephens.  Who do Briggs and Tarango feel will come out on top? A new edition of The Tennis Podcast is available to download after play every day during the US Open. Presented by broadcasters Catherine Whitaker (Eurosport, BBC 5 Live) and David Law (BBC 5 Live, BT Sport), it is produced weekly throughout the year, and daily at the Grand Slam tournaments, in association with Telegraph Sport and Eurosport.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
