If you like racquet reviews, you must know Chris from Tennis Warehouse. He is a legend in the game. Here is my podcast with Chris Edwards.
Podcast with Chris Edwards
I have done a podcast with Chris Edwards before, but that was part of a group discussing racquets for Tennis Warehouse. But the first time I had the chance to sit down and talk to him properly was during my second visit to the HEADquarters in Kennelbach, where we both took part in the Tennis Warehouse HEAD Gravity Super Review. I wasn't shocked to see we had a lot in common, and it would be great to sit down and do a podcast together. But the trip was tight, so we did it over Zoom. It's not quite the same feeling as doing it live, but we had a great chat and discussed many things racquets, work, and life.
