In the latest episode of The Passing Shot, the tennis podcast by fans, Joel and Kim catchup on another week of action from the ATP and WTA Tours, with Andrey Rublev continuing his streak of success at ATP500 level and young Dane Clara Tauson claiming her first Tour Title in Lyon as a Qualifier.

They discuss Petra Kvitova’s path to her 2nd Doha title, celebrate another week of success on tour for a Cerundolo brother, and look ahead to the long awaited comeback of a certain Roger Federer in Doha.

They round up ATP rankings news, the retirement of Brit Marcus Willis and debate the value of service lets whilst Joel also teases Kim with a very frustrating Mysterious Player.
