We bring on venerable tennis Hall of Famer Steve Flink to discuss the first four days of the U.S. Open.

#TNPodcast: Sharapova Shines, Federer Survives Day 1

Was Steve emotional while making his speech in Newport this summer? You bet!

Was Andy Roddick's induction speech the crowning achievement of his career? Probably not, but it was DAMN GOOD.

We discuss a shaky start by Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal and wonder what it means for the men's side going forward.

We look at the rise of 18-year-old Canadian sensation Denis Shapovalov and talk about the wide open lower section of the men's singles draw.

On the women's side there were eight players with a shot at No.1 when the week began, but now only five. One of them, two-time Grand Slam champion Garbine Muguruza, has a shot to solidify her place as a dominant force in the women's game.

And finally, what about this Russian wild card named Sharapova?

Thanks to Steve Flink for coming on, and thanks to everybody for listening. Please rate and review us on iTunes and please, oh please, tell your friends about the Tennis Now Podcast!
