Ep #203: Tennis controversy and a jam-packed weekend primer
On today’s episode of The GIST of It, co-hosts Ellen Hyslop and Steph Rotz kick things off with a head-scratching move from the USTA. Belarusian player Victoria Azarenka was surprisingly dropped from last night’s “Tennis Plays for Peace” exhibition match, despite publicly condemning Russia’s war with Ukraine. El and Steph deep dive with a nuanced conversation on this complicated topic.
Then after the break, the gals preview a jam-packed sporting weekend ahead. From the women’s world hockey championships to college football to F1, they have you covered for the biggest storylines surrounding these major events.
