The Tour Catch-Up: Melbourne Madness - All Draws Assessed; Packed crowds return in Adelaide; Halep's Top 10 consistency; Nadal's quarantine comments; Murray's Challenger assignment; Wawrinka's off-season to forget

In the latest episode of The Passing Shot, the tennis podcast by fans, Joel and Kim preview the upcoming week of tennis in Melbourne where there is not just 1, but 6 events taking place!

They prepare for a crazy week ahead by discussing the draws and entry lists, making probably terrible predictions and also looking back at the Adelaide exhibition, where we saw tennis crowds returning with aplomb.

They also discuss Andy Murray’s decision to play the Biella Challenger in Italy, Rafa’s comments on the Melbourne quarantine situation and the fact that Simona Halep has reached 7 straight years in the Top 10.

For Rafa fans and those looking to test their Nadal knowledge, listen until the very end of the episode for a mini Nadal themed quiz (source BBC Mastermind).
