In the latest episode of The Passing Shot, Joel and Kim catch up on the past week’s action from the Estoril and Munich tournaments as well as the ongoing Madrid Masters.

They discuss Cam Norrie’s run to the final in Portugal, Basilashvili’s second title of the year in Munich and Osaka’s loss to Muchova early on in Madrid.

They then look ahead to the rest of the week in Madrid for both the men and the women’s draws, consider what item of tennis memorabilia they would bid through the nose for as well as debating the loss of Wimbledon’s Middle Sunday tradition in light of the AELTC’s recent announcement.
