Racquet questions with Tennis Files

by Jonas Eriksson

I was asked by Mehrban Iranshad to come on his podcast Tennis Files and answer racquet questions and more.

Mehrban does a great job asking relevant racquet questions, so I thought it would be useful if I also published the conversation on the Tennisnerd channels. Make sure to follow Tennis Files on your favorite podcast platform. There are loads of excellent interviews with interesting tennis people there.

You can also listen to our conversation in the embedded player below. Use the timestamps to move around in the conversation. There are more Tennisnerd podcast episodes on Spotify, Apple, Google and other platforms. You can also check out our podcast page.
