On this edition of the Tennis Now Podcast we are joined by Jeff Sackmann of Tennis Abstract to discuss tennis analytics.

After a brief intro we delve into the impact of height in men's tennis. Marat Safin was the tallest No.1 in ATP history and he barely had a cup of coffee in the top spot. Will we ever see a taller man become No.1? We discuss the potential of Alexander Zverev and Karen Khachanov and break down why tall players are abysmal on return.

We also discuss the potential corrrelation between aggression and success in the women's game and wonder if there's reom at the top fo the sport for the Simona Halep's and Daria Kasatkina's of the world.

Finally, Jeff informs us about his wide-reaching match charting project and lets listeners know how they can get involved.
