We are into the late of stages in Melbourne as action nears a close from the 2023 Australian Open and Ben Lewis and Mike McIntyre have yet another podcast to analyze all the unfolding action.

This week’s special guest on Match Point Canada is a six-time grand slam champion in doubles, former world number one, and one of the premiere commentators in the sport for ESPN.

Aussie Rennae Stubbs chats with Ben about the evolving storylines Down Under, an open and intriguing women’s field, Andy Murray’s unforgettable performances, and why Novak Djokovic is the man to beat.

“I know he came down here with a massive amount of vengeance in him to want to win this Australian Open and get 10 titles,” says Stubbs.

Djokovic is chasing history, with a chance to tie Rafael Nadal for most men’s grand slam singles titles at 22.

Ben and Mike also give their takes on the numerous surprises and upsets, who might emerge on the women’s side, thoughts on the supposed Netflix curse from the series Break Point, the strong emergence of American tennis, and evaluate the performance of the Canadians in Melbourne.

All of that and much more on the newest episode of Match Point Canada, available on MegaphoneApple Podcasts, or Spotify below. We hope you enjoy!
