Welcome to THE NIGHT SESSION webcast, US Open edition! The Traveling Fangirl Courtney Massey joins Tennis Inside Out’s Valerie David for some NSFW musings and tears over the US Open results, those crazy Aussie kids and weird pick-up lines, French hotties, the latest news and scandals, plus the usual butt talk and inappropriate uses for tables on the practice court.
We’ll kick off with the full broadcast, which begins with our US Open segment, thoughts about infinite break point opportunities, and Nole’s tire problems. Scroll down if you want to skip to your next favorite parts, and for some additional goodies we discussed in the podcast!
Here’s the look at poor Nole’s early match wipe-out:
