This week on Match Point Canada, Ben and Mike welcome one of the most recognizable and accomplished coaches of all time, Rick Macci, who worked with the likes of Maria Sharapova, Jennifer Capriati, Andy Roddick and of course Serena and Venus Williams.
Macci continues to be heavily involved in the sport in his seventies, running the hugely successful Rick Macci Tennis Academy in Boca Raton where he is on the court sharing his wisdom with young tennis players daily.
Macci shares his insight on the continued brilliance from Novak Djokovic in the wake of his record-setting seventh ATP Finals title in Turin and also discusses the evolution of Jannik Sinner, who had another incredible tournament to close out his season.
Of course, the topic of the Academy Award-winning film King Richard is also brought up and Macci talks about how closely it paralleled his real-life experience of coaching a young Serena and Venus and helping them gather the tools that would lead them to become all-time legends of the sport.
Later in the episode, Ben and Mike preview the upcoming Davis Cup Finals in Malaga where Team Canada will attempt to repeat as champions and follow in the footsteps of our recent winning Billie Jean King Cup squad.
