One of the most requested podcast guests to date has been Caty McNally. She is up to a career high #75 in singles and top 20 WTA doubles player. As a back-to-back US Open doubles finalist, you can learn a lot by studying Caty’s game.
Tennis Tribe writer, Hanlon Walsh, and I finally got to chat with Caty at the ATX Open between her first and second round of singles. This is a brief but insightful conversation.
- The difference between Caty in 2021 & 2023.
- How Caty adjusts to playing with different doubles partners. She has 13 WTA & ITF titles with 10 different partners.
- How doubles has helped her singles game.
- What makes her defensive volleys so good (funny answer here!)
Hopefully we can have Caty on for a round two at some point.
