Alexander Zverev lost in Rome, but is he Rafael Nadal’s biggest French Open threat?

Moments after Rafael Nadal is crowned Champion in Rome for the eighth time, Tennis Podcast presenters Catherine Whitaker and David Law bask in the London sunshine to discuss the King of Clay’s rain-assisted victory over Alexander Zverev, and the extraordinary performance of Elina Svitolina to dismantle an out-of-sorts Simona Halep. 

Other Rome talking points are also in the spotlight, including Karolina Pliskova’s uncharacteristic outburst of on-court anger, and the WTA’s decision not to disclose her punishment. Plus they ask for what seems like the thousandth time this year… Is Novak Djokovic finally back?

And with the main French Open warm-up events now done and dusted, The Tennis Podcast examines the runners and riders for the second Grand Slam of the year – how likely is Jelena Ostapenko to repeat her heroics of 2017? And can Zverev really be considered second favourite for a maiden Grand Slam title?

Oh, and of course there is mention of the Royal Wedding and a certain GOAT’s attendance…

The Tennis Podcast is produced weekly throughout the year and daily during the Grand Slam tournaments, in association with Telegraph Sport. It is presented by Catherine Whitaker (Eurosport) and David Law (BBC 5 Live, BT Sport).
