Podcast of Last Night’s Australian Open Interview on WHAS Radio

Here is the podcast from Lachlan McLean’s Sports Talk 84 last night.  I was interviewed in the final 5 minutes of the broadcast regarding the Australian Open.  It was a lot of fun and Lachlan McLean did a great job of promoting Tennis Abides. https://media.iheart.com/player/embed.html?autoStart=false&useFullScreen=true&mid=25777656&siteid=1158&startButtonColor=0xA33335&share=http://www.whas.com/media/podcast-sports-talk-840-with-lachlan-SportsTalk84/st840-13015-hour-2-25777656/
