The Tour Catch-Up: Ruud in rude health in Geneva; Gauff doubles up in Parma; Tsitsipas rolls on as Norrie stands out in Lyon; Indian Wells back on; 2022 Aus. Open abroad?

In the latest episode of The Passing Shot, the tennis podcast by fans, Joel and special guest Lee take a look back on all the latest tour action whilst Kim is on holiday.

They look at how Casper Ruud has quietly put together a pretty stellar clay court season and Cameron Norrie's breakout week in Lyon including his destruction of Dominic Thiem and Karen Khachanov en route to the final.

Elsewhere, Coco Mania takes over Parma as Gauff doubles up to win both the singles and doubles titles whilst Indian Wells is back on for an October start date. They also look ahead to the grass courts with the Queen's player entry list (Joel is not impressed) plus investigate the rumours that the Australian Open might be played in the Middle East.
