Welcome back toooooo…. an Australian Open recap edition of Hey, Great Shot!!!! In this week’s episode, co-hosts Alex Gruskin and Max Rothman attempt to sift through all of the drama and action from the tournament’s second week of play. The guys discuss the (not so sudden) rise of Hyeon Chung, hop on board the Kyle Edmund Express, and recap some of their favorite performances from the year’s first grand slam. As it was one of the biggest stories within the Tennis Twitter Community, they also take a moment to express their opinions on the controversy surrounding Tennys Sandgren’s social media account.

Despite heavy protest from Gruskin, the two dedicated this week’s Changeover Chat to the performance of Roger Federer. Rothman makes the obvious case for why Fed must be considered the GOAT, while Gruskin chooses to play the role of Devil’s Advocate by pointing out Fed’s one resume deficiency. They end the show by debating the tournament’s winners and losers (hint to Nike clothing designers, you lost), listing their favorite ATP Tour storylines moving forward, and of course, with advertisements from two new fake sponsors.
