JARED DONALDSON talks TENNIS with CRAIG SHAPIRO_URCS040

In 2018 Jared Donaldson was 21 years old and in the top 50. Then injury struck. Now, after a successful surgery and a year on the DL, he’s about to come back.

Jared has posted wins over Tsitsipas, Goffin, Raonic and Bautista Agut and he’s been across the net from nearly every man on the tour.

As a kid, Jared moved from Rhode Island to Argentina in order to improve his game on the red clay. While there, he practiced with top players like Diego Schwartzman and Guido Pella.

After a solid junior career, Jared was the only American to be part of the first Next Gen group that included Coric, Shapovalov, Khachenov and Medvedev.

Rhode Island’s Finest JARED DONALDSON tells the story of how he went from losing the finals of Kalamazoo all the way to the third round of the US Open main draw. He also offers a candid assessment of the up and coming men on the tour. And he offers a unique inside look into how players deal with injury on the tour.

Recorded June 4, 2019. Released August 12, 2019.

ANDRÉ SÁ is one of the most likable guys on the tour. And that’s probably why Tennis Australia recently named the Brazilian head of player liasons. Before that, he had the same job with the ITF. And before that, he had an impressive professional career, beating Mark Phillipousis, Andy Roddick and Feliciano Lopez and is part of the illustrious final 8 club at Wimbledon.

He spent 5 years at the Bollettieri Academy, coming up with the likes of Tommy Haas and Max Mirnyi. And as a doubles player, he won 11 titles and a gold medal at the Pan American Games.

On this episode, Brazilian stalwart, ANDRÉ SÁ explains what next year’s “Summer Down Under” will look like. He tells us what got the cab drivers in Brazil to realize that a tennis racquet was not just a small guitar. And he tells the story of what it was like to challenge Great Britain’s greatest hope on center court of Wimbledon.

Recorded March, 2019. Released July 1, 2019.
