ANDRE SA talks TENNIS with CRAIG SHAPIRO_URCS036

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.

ANNE WHITE talks TENNIS with CRAIG SHAPIRO-URCS035

ANNE WHITE has had an expansive life in tennis. As a pro, she beat Goolagong on grass, Mandlíková on hard and Hanika on clay. And at one time, she was #19 in the world. In doubles, Anne got inside the top 10, partnering with Chris Evert and Betsy Nagleson. But she might be best known for wearing a white lycra bodysuit at Wimbledon. This was in 1985, 30 years before Serena’s controversial catsuit.

White grew up in Charleston, West Virginia and her tennis talents became obvious early on. As a Junior she won The Orange Bowl and was one of the first students at The Bolletteiri Academy. She played 2 years at USC where she blew the competition out of the water. Undefeated, she also got to #30 in the world as an amateur.

Currently, she is the director of the illustrious Beverly Hills Tennis Club. And recently, she produced the Emmy Award nominated documentary LOVE MEANS ZERO.

On this episode, White shares her insight on the tour including what she thinks Madison Keys needs to do to win a major. She tells us how she got the Bolletteiri documentary off the ground. And she reveals the story of how her famous bodysuit made its way to Wimbledon.  

Recorded June 1, 2019. Released June 23, 2019.
