Episode 357: The Year in Men’s Tennis (With Ricky Dimon)
With Ricky Dimon in town to run his sixth Marine Corps Marathon, he joins Ben for their annual wrap show on the year that was in men's tennis, which was another season of Novak Djokovic, now 36, lording over a much younger field.
Ben and Ricky get somewhat granular, going over the top seventeen men in the rankings and spending a few minutes on each, assessing their years and their prospects for next year.
In order: Dimitrov, Shelton, Tiafoe, Khachanov, de Minaur, Paul, Ruud, Hurkacz, Fritz, Rune, Zverev, Tsitsipas, Rublev, Sinner, Medvedev, Alcaraz, and Djokovic
Plus a few honorable notable mentions: Murray, Auger-Aliassime, Kyrgios and Nadal.
Thanks for listening! And thanks for pre-ordering Ben's new biography of Naomi Osaka!
