This past Sunday Former ATP Player Stephen Warboys joined the International Sports Report’s Lins O’Connor and Peter Irvine in studio on TSN 1050 Radio in Toronto, Ontario, Canada to review the Aussie Open so far.
Warboys speaks to the importance of Milos Raonic dedicating his last win to the victims of a shooting in Saskatchewan. Stephen goes on to credit Raonic for his growth in this matter and his game of late. Warboys does point out Milos has had a dream draw down under up to this point. He also credits Milos’ new Coach & Former Player Carlos Moya for his recent run of success. However, Warboys reveals that Stan Wawrinka is nearly the worst opponent for Raonic to face at the Australian Open. Stephen offers his analysis of Andy Murray’s play down under thus far. Warboy’s also offers his thoughts on Maria Sharapova and Williams advancing in a tough draw on the women’s side. Stephen also offers his take on Canadian’s Daniel Nestor and Vasek Pospisil along with their partners moving on in Melbourne. Warboys also points to the importance of Nestor’s 1000th win being overlooked. Stephen also talks about a young player who has rubbed him the wrong way already. Warboys explains why he is giving Canadian Eugenie Bouchard a pass for her elimination from the Aussie Open. He also reflects on the career of Lleyton Hewitt. Stephen offers his take on match fixing in tennis, including his own experience as a past player on the ATP tour, including playing on the first legal bet site in the sport in the 1970’s. Warboys points out match fixing is not happening at the top levels of tennis but can take place online in a point by point fashion. Stephen suggests the ATP & WTA partners with the betting sites to crackdown on match fixing in tennis.
