Indian Wells Catch-Up: Nadal's Sunshine Single; Osaka drama; Meddy's short reign; Kyrgios cruise control; Dart's desert dream + Slams stop '70-68'

In the latest episode of The Passing Shot, the tennis podcast by fans, Joel and Kim catch up on all the action so far from the Californian desert as Indian Wells reaches the Quarter/Semi Final stage.

With Daniil Medvedev already soon to lose the Number 1 ranking after his early loss to Gael Monfils, and Rafa setting up a Quarter Final clash with Nick Kyrgios after coming back from the brink in his opener against Seb Korda, there are plenty of news stories on the men’s side to reflect on this week, as well as continued British hopes with Cam Norrie still on course to defend his title (correct at time of recording!).

In the women’s side, Joel and Kim discuss the unfortunate heckling incident that afflicted Naomi Osaka’s loss to Veronika Kudermetova whilst in more positive news Simona Halep and Iga Swiatek have both set up a tantalizing semi final between two in form opponents. Joel and Kim also celebrate British qualifier Harriet Dart’s deepest run yet at a WTA event, as well as Emma Raducanu’s mixed fortunes in the desert.

They also discuss the news that Wimbledon will now feature a last set tie break to become consistent with other Slams, and the successful bid of the city of Glasgow to host part of the 2022 Davis Cup Finals in September.
