Wimbledon is approaching and with it, new ways of mastering the game that's been around for more than a century and a half. Aside from the ways analytics have advanced tennis, there are a lot of storylines for this year's fortnight, including if Novak Djokovic can move one step closer to completing the calendar Grand Slam, and if Serena Williams can figure out why she hasn't won in her last three attempts.

In this podcast, I discuss these issues and more with tennis coach and strategy analyst Craig O'Shannessy. You can learn more about his work from his website,
