Tour Catch-Up: Nadal's 91st title, Meddy breaks No.1 monopoly; Zverev loco in Acapulco; Swiatek soars; Raducanu rumbled; Tour Tension over Russia-Ukraine war

In the latest episode of The Passing Shot, the tennis podcast by fans, Joel and Kim catch up on the plethora of ATP and WTA tournaments taking place in the past week and get their teeth into some of the key talking points on tour.

With Daniil Medvedev becoming the new World Number One, Rafa Nadal extending his win streak to 15 matches to start off the season, and Sasha Zverev being defaulted from the tournament, there is plenty to discuss from Acapulco alone.

Out in Doha, Iga Swiatek dominated in form Anett Kontaveit to win her 4th career title, Sloane Stephens got back to winning ways in Guadalajara, and despite losing the final in Chile, Sebastian Baez proves he is definitely a young one to watch.

Whilst the world observes the terrible news from Ukraine, Joel and Kim discuss how tennis can play a role amidst this time of crisis and how the events will affect the tour itself.
