#165: French Open 2022 Review

The 2022 French Open was an historic event. Rafael Nadal won his 14th Roland Garros and 22nd Grand Slam, as he beat Casper Ruud in the final. 

Iga Swiatek moved to 35 match wins in a row, and her 2nd French Open title in 3 years as she swept past 18-year-old Coco Gauff in the womens final.

More records were broken as Jean Julien Rojer became the oldest male play to win a Grand Slam in the Open era, as he partnered the first ever player from Central America to win a Grand Slam, Marcelo Arvevalo in the Mens Doubles. 

After a week of training at SotoTennis Academy and travelling with our coach Bruno Argudo, Gordon Reid and his partner Alfie Hewitt won their 10th Grand Slam in a row by defending the men´s wheelchair doubles title. 

So much for our panel of experts to unpack in today´s episode! 

2012 Wimbledon Doubles Champion Freddie Nielsen and Kieron Vorster (current fitness coach to Liam Broady and former fitness coach to Dan Evans, Tim Henman, Wayne Ferreira to name a few) return to the show to see how their picks faired from our French Open Preview!

They also dig into the amazing achievements and matches we witnessed throughout the fortnight.

Listen out for a little bonus Wimbledon 2022 preview, as they pick their winners for this years event at SW19.

Another must listen full of insight, inside knowledge, fun and a few belly laughs as well!
