    Show notes
    Rio 2016 was a particularly emotional and memorable Olympics for tennis, with Andy Murray defending his gold medal, Juan Martin del Potro entering people’s hearts, and shock defeats for Serena Williams and Novak Djokovic.
    But it was Monica Puig’s run which best encapsulated the spirit of the Games. Catherine talks to her about how it felt to win Puerto Rico’s first ever gold medal.
    As our journey through tennis’ history at the Olympics arrives at its final destination, we also speak to Christopher Clarey and Mary Carillo about their favourite memories and experiences of covering the Games.
    Finally, we reflect on tennis’ place in the Olympics and consider the impact of Tokyo’s postponement.
    The Tennis Podcast is presented by Catherine Whitaker and David Law, and features Matt Roberts. It is produced weekly year-round, and daily during the Grand Slam tournaments. It is crowdfunded by listeners each December.
