Thirty Love: Conversations About Tennis

Sep 14, 2022

Returning guest Matt Marolf, who writes match previews for big tournaments year-round, joins Thirty Love host Carl Bialik after they played a windy tennis match to wrap the 2022 U.S. Open, preview the rest of the season, and solve all of tennis's problems along the way: how a change to the scoring system could simplify the fan experience and prevent late finishes, what to do about faulty let calls, which singles runner-up will win their first major first, and what to watch for at Laver Cup and the WTA tour finals.
