Einmal auf dem Rasen von Wimbledon spielen. Diesen Traum hatte Patrik Kühnen als er die Spiele zwischen John McEnroe und Björn Borg am Fernseher verfolgte. Mit 12 Jahren ging Patrik auf ein Sportinternat, mit 17 fasste er den Entschluss Tennis-Profi zu werden. Er war unter den Top 50 der Welt, besiegte Ivan Lendl, Mats Wilander, Henri Leconte, Thomas Muster oder Andre Agassi. 1988 spielte er sein größtes Match, das dramatische Achtelfinale über fünf Sätze in Wimbledon gegen den damals 35-jährigen Jimmy Connors. Noch heute spielt er zwei- bis dreimal Mal die Woche Tennis. Seine zweite Leidenschaft ist das Coaching. Er war fast zehn Jahre lang deutscher Davis Cup-Coach hat sich ständig fortgebildet und gibt seine Expertise an Spieler und Führungskräfte weiter. Im SPOBIS Podcast „Sports, Careers & Pioneers“ mit Henrik Horndahl spricht er über seine Karriere, die Säulen des Erfolgs, was er von anderen Sportgrößen gelernt hat und warum ein positives Mindset wichtig ist. produziert von Maniac Studios Titelfoto https://www.picture-alliance.com/ Marijan Murat dpa

There were special scenes on Sunday night in New York as Carlos Alcaraz beat Casper Ruud to become the youngest US Open men's champion since Pete Sampras in 1990 and the youngest ATP World No.1 ever. Catherine, David and Matt were in the stadium to witness it and they discuss the match and the significance of the moment on the podcast. What made it such an enjoyable match? How did Alcaraz make up for any fatigue he was feeling? And will Ruud have regrets? Throwing it ahead, are we entering the Alcaraz era? What will Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and the Next Gen challengers be thinking as they watch Alcaraz win this title? And how much better can Alcaraz still get?

Ce n'est pas un endroit que l'on pense à visiter quand on vient à New York, où on se concentre sur Manhattan, voire Brooklyn. Le Flushing Meadows Corona Park dans le Queens accueille le tournoi de tennis du grand chelem U.S. Open. Quand on parle de ce tournoi, il y a forcément des noms qui viennent en tête et notamment des noms américains comme le très classe Jimmy Connors, le tempétueux John McEnroe, Pete Sampras, Andre Agassi, Arthur Ashe... Chez les femmes : Billie Jean King, Chris Evert, Steffi Graf, Martina Navrátilová, et bien sûr... les sœurs Williams. Chaque semaine, le mardi, Lionel Gendron nous adresse une Lettre d'Amérique.

It also makes NO CLAIM that Trump declassified anything. THAT'S! A! CONFESSION! (2:52) He also confessed on social media (4:51) So why hasn't he been perp walked? Finger-printed? Because the DOJ is still afraid of affecting the election! Not 2024, but the November midterms, even though Trump isn't running in them - merely because he's endorsed people who are!

(12:17) And Trump's own lawyer Alina Habba may have inadvertently convicted him of espionage but she (13:10) dismisses espionage as a "mundane statute" which will come as a surprise to the Rosenbergs.(14:32) This is now an open and shut case.

We may have had the Serena celebration, but we haven't had her final match. Not yet. At the end of an extraordinary evening - which saw Serena honoured on court before, during and after her victory over Danka Kovinic - David, Catherine and Matt try to sum it all up. Why was it better to stage Serena's ceremony tonight rather than after a loss? How much better did her game look than in Cincinnati? And can she now go on a run? Elsewhere, it was a day of upsets with Simona Halep, Daria Kasatkina, Stefanos Tsitsipas and Taylor Fritz all beaten. We talk about those shocks, Andy Murray's first straight sets win at a slam since 2017, why Ons Jabeur is under the radar here, whether we found Dominic Thiem's loss to Pablo Carreno Busta worrying or encouraging, and why Bianca Andreescu needs to do some grovelling to Nike.

What can we learn from Barry Sanders or Andrew Luck, who left their sports early? What can we learn from Shaq or Patrick Ewing or others who stuck around longer as their physical abilities began to fade? And what about GOATs who retired and then unretired like Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, and Tom Brady?

Welcome to Season 11, Episode 15, of the ParentingAces Podcast, a proud member of the Tennis Channel Podcast Network. This week, Lisa chats with Brett Connors, current producer at the Tennis Channel and son of World Number 1, Jimmy Connors, and his wife, model Patti McGuire. Growing up as the child of world-famous parents can be a pressure cooker. You're always being held up in the world's eye to the uber-high standards set by your parents. In Brett Connors's case, he definitely faced some of that pressure but has found a way to forge his own path and identity both in and outside of the tennis world. Not only did Brett and his younger sister, Aubree, have to deal with their parents' fame but also with their dad's frequent time away from them as he traveled the world competing. That said, their mother found a way to bring a sense of normalcy to their childhood while encouraging them both to pursue their own interests and dreams. After playing both golf and tennis as a young child, Brett eventually chose to pursue golf in college and still plays to this day. Leaving junior tennis and discovering a passion for photography and production have helped him find his own unique identity separate from his "Pops" and also led them both to co-hosting a podcast, Advantage Connors where they talk about tennis, for sure, as well as other topics of interest. To see Brett's photography and keep up with his latest podcast episodes, you can follow him on Twitter and Instagram. The Advantage Connors podcast is on Instagram here.

And one of the best living examples of someone who exemplifies all of the rare qualities of trust and supportive leadership in a genuine, humble way is our guest Barry Richardson. Barry is one of those people that was brought up to believe that your word is your deed and that everything is signed and sealed by simply looking someone squarely in the eye and giving them a handshake. If Barry says he's going to do something he does it, and he stays true to his principles and will walk away if someone tries to compromise them. He's consistently true to himself and true to all of those around him. Barry, also known as ‘Bones', is one of those rare wise men that speaks his truth quietly and humbly, but when he talks, you just stop and listen. He's the embodiment of that old saying ‘that a wise man only talks when he has something to say, but a fool talks because he has to say something.' I've been a massive fan of Barry's since the 1960s during his glory days as a premiership VFL footballer for my team the mighty Richmond Tigers, and he went on to become the coach and then the club president - and there are very very few who have achieved this level of total accomplishment. So to set the scene so that you can appreciate the full spectrum of Barry Richardson's incredible achievements, here's a brief snapshot.  As an elite footballer he kicked 134 goals and played 125 games over nine seasons from 1965 to 1974 and won three premierships during the Richmond Tigers' golden age (in 1967,69 & 74) when he played in Richmond's first drought breaking and winning premiership for over 24 years. This was an amazing feat during the time when the game was yet to become professional and players were part time, holding down full time jobs and working careers in order to pay their way. Bones played during the rough and tough days of mud, blood and beer and was one of ‘Hafey's Heroes' when he was coached by the club's team of the century coach, Tommy Hafey, who was famous for always saying ‘I'm sensational but getting better!'  These were the days when the coach led by example and Tommy was still doing a thousand sit ups a day and 200 pushups when he was well into his 70s, and this daily discipline has rubbed off on Barry who still keeps himself fit at a similar age. Two years after retiring from playing, Bones won the difficult job of coach of the Richmond Tigers, which was a big ask, taking over from the legendary Tommy Hafey and being in charge of many of his former team mates at just 30 years of age. Many commended Barry for his inclusive, trusting approach that was way ahead of the time. This was a cut throat era in the game, when the instant pressure to perform from the ferocious and impatient Tiger Army, created a mistrusting environment where the Tigers administration would constantly eat their young by only offering coaches one year contracts and then regularly sacking them. So Barry lasted two seasons as coach, which was more than most during this revolving door period. This was an environment where the pressure to perform created an endemic culture of mistrust that led to Richmond's lost years, going without a premiership for another 34 years. But on the strength of his always trustworthy and dependable approach, Barry was far from done in the corridors of football, joining the Melbourne Demons in 1981 as Chairman of Selectors, before returning to Richmond in the haloed position of Club President for a year. He resigned on principle, when his handshake deal with the then coach was overturned by the administration.  His trustworthy, reliable approach was further rewarded when he then joined the West Coast Eagles, before spending time at Melbourne, Carlton and Geelong. And Barry's high achievements weren't restricted to football. Professionally, he was a pioneer of sports physiotherapy and he's stayed at the forefront of his profession with a client list that includes the who's who of world wide elite sport during those days, including legendary cricketer Dennis Lillee, AFL legend Ron Barassi, US tennis star Jimmy Connors and world famous ice skaters Torville and Dean. Barry is one of those rare individuals who has managed to balance the competing pressures of family, elite sport and his professional career as a sports physio. Throughout his personal, professional and sporting career, Barry's cool, calm and collected demeanour engendered instant trust, respect and admiration from anyone who knew him, and he's been described as versatile, valiant, valuable and victorious – which sums him up perfectly.  And the reason he reached the giddy heights of stardom and sustainable success both on and off the football field, and in his thriving business as a physio to the world's greats, all comes down to his reliable, dependable trustworthiness and the respect this has engendered, and you'll hear all about this in our great conversation today.

In this Wimbledon edition of Tennis Re-Lived we tell the story of the 1973 boycott year, when more than 80 men withdrew from the tournament to protest the suspension of Yugoslavia's number one player Nikola Pilic, opening the door for Jan Kodes to win the title.Journalist Richard Evans talks us through the political background which led to the boycott, Cliff Drysdale, who was ATP President at the time, explains why the players felt they had to unite, and Billie Jean King reveals why the women weren't involved.Turning our attention to the actual tennis, what must it have been like to be one of the 50 lucky losers in the draw? In what way did Bjorn Borg and Jimmy Connors become unexpected stars of the event? And how did Kodes end up lifting the trophy? Finally, we consider the current political climate in tennis and ponder whether a boycott could be on the cards once again as the PTPA grows.

The oldest tennis tournament in the world may be steeped in history, but that doesn't stop the common folk like us from enjoying a match, traditional Pimm's or donning our Wimbledon whites.  1. There's a strict dress code at the prestigious tournament, requiring players to wear all white. (Rumor has it was that it was because it didn't show sweat like other colors). Now we all know that nothing ruins your summer whites like bird poop. Luckily you don't have to worry about that at Wimbledon. Rufus is a specially trained hawk that keeps those pooping pigeons away from the grounds. Like a good predator, Rufus flies above the grounds for one hour (9:00 am) most mornings before the gates open to keep the birds away.  2. Did you know that Wimbledon is the largest single annual sporting event in Europe from a catering perspective? In previous years, spectators consumed over 276,000 glasses of Pimm's to wash down 18,061 servings of fish and chips. Although this year, those numbers might be a little lower as fan capacity is limited to 50% occupancy until the men's and women's finals, when the stadium will be at 100% capacity. The tournament has served 4,242 servings of sushi and 6,147 of pasta to their racket-wielding athletes. 3. The tennis balls are replaced every seven to nine games to ensure they're kept in perfect shape. It's no wonder more than 53,000 tennis balls are used during the two-week tournament. But did you know that tennis balls used to be white or black, not yellow? They were changed to yellow to make it easier for the TV viewer to see the ball, but Wimbledon was a late adopter to the color change, waiting until the 80s.   4. Grunting is something no longer left to gremlins and grumpy old men. Even the classiest of tennis players vocalize their play. While you may think this is a new thing, Monica Seles and Jimmy Connors are known as the original creators of the tennis grunt. The loudest one on the court? Russia's Maria Sharapova at 105 decibels – the equivalent of standing next to an accelerating motorcycle.  5. The biggest news about Wimbledon is who isn't going to be there. Naomi Osaka and Rafael Nadal have both dropped out of the tournament. But instead of looking at the glass half empty, let's talk about how Serena Williams will be there to go for her record-tying 24 Grand Slam win. Or the two of the biggest names in men's tennis, Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic, will take the court. Djokovic has won the first two Grand Slam tournaments (aka majors) this year. (Wimbledon is the third major of the year). Bonus: Last year's tournament was cancelled but don't feel too bad. The All-England Lawn Tennis Club had been paying pandemic insurance for 17 years, and it finally paid off with a rumored payout of $141 million.

(20 de junio: Centenario del Natalicio de Pancho Segura) A raíz de sus victorias en los torneos de la Copa Sudamericana en Brasil, Chile, Argentina y Uruguay en 1939, recibió el apoyo moral y económico necesario para viajar a los Estados Unidos como representante especial del Ministerio del Deporte de Ecuador. Desde Nueva York aceptó una beca para estudiar y jugar tenis representando a la Universidad de Miami, y llegó a ser el mejor jugador universitario del país, ganando el campeonato nacional estadounidense por tres años consecutivos, entre 1943 y 1945. En 1947 dio el salto al profesionalismo a pesar de que en aquellos tiempos a los profesionales no se les permitía competir en los torneos del Grand Slam, es decir, en Wimbledon, Roland Garros, Estados Unidos y Australia, ni en la Copa Davis. Soñaba con ganar uno de esos grandes torneos, pero la necesidad económica lo impulsó a tomar esa decisión. Fue así como entre 1950 y 1952 se convirtió en el primer jugador en ganar el torneo profesional de los Estados Unidos en tres superficies diferentes, venciendo dos veces al gran campeón Francisco «Pancho» González, el mejor sacador de la época. Su velocidad en las piernas, su tenis poco ortodoxo pero muy efectivo, y su inteligencia táctica lo llevaron a ser considerado en 1950 y 1952 como el jugador número uno del mundo a nivel profesional. El legendario Jack Kramer dijo de él que «tenía el mejor golpe en la historia del tenis», un golpe de derecha letal con las dos manos.1 Con semejante talento y carisma, en 1962, ya retirado, comenzó a dar clases en California en el Beverly Hills Tennis Club. Algunas de las grandes estrellas del cine, tales como Doris Day, Julie Andrews, Charlton Heston, Barbra Streisand, Gene Hackman y Ava Gardner, fueron alumnos suyos. Pero los dos alumnos más destacados que tuvo fueron dos de los mejores tenistas de la historia: Jimmy Connors, a quien legó su revés a dos manos, y Chris Evert. ¡Con razón que en 1984 ingresó al Salón de la Fama del Tenis Internacional! Se trata, nada más ni nada menos, que de «la Leyenda» del Ecuador, Pancho Segura.2 Cuando falleció a los 96 años, Jimmy Connors escribió en Twitter: «¡Qué día tan triste! Perdí a mi amigo, entrenador y mentor, el gran Pancho Segura...» Y Chris Evert, por su parte, escribió: «Que descanses en paz, Pancho Segura. Recuerdo con afecto tu humor, tu mente estratégica y tus dos manos con que jugabas en ambos lados. Fuiste un precursor. Te extrañaremos.»3 Así como Pancho Segura, también San Pablo se esforzó por legarles a sus discípulos lo que él había aprendido y practicado a lo largo de su carrera. Quiera Dios que también nosotros determinemos aprender y enseñarles esas verdades a personas que a su vez sean capaces de enseñarlas a otros, para que puedan vivir en paz con Dios ahora y descansar en paz a la hora de su partida.4 Carlos ReyUn Mensaje a la Concienciawww.conciencia.net 1 «Ecuador pierde a su mayor gloria del tenis, ‘Pancho’ Segura Cano», 19 noviembre 2017 En línea 11 enero 2021. 2 Ibíd. 3 «La historia de Pancho Segura, el ecuatoriano ex número uno que llevó a la gloria a Jimmy Connors y Chris Evert», Infobae, 21 noviembre 2017 En línea 11 enero 2021. 4 2Ti 2:2; Ro 5:1

If you're a film fan, you know Koppelman and Levien for Rounders, the John Dahl movie starring Matt Damon and Edward Norton that gained cult status as poker became a mainstream sport. The duo wrote the script for the film, highlighting their specific style of dialogue that lives on to this day. Koppelman and Levien are currently busy with their hit show Billions, which we discuss as being a culmination of their work in some ways. We also mention Koppelman's discovering Tracy Chapman many years ago, his masterful 30 for 30 documentary on Jimmy Connors (co-directed with Levien), and how Vin Diesel successfully became a worldwide action star.
