On this week's episode of Beyond the Baseline, host Jon Wertheim talks with 22-year-old American Tommy Paul, who won the USTA wildcard entry into the main draw of the 2019 French Open, about what it means for his career; how he has dealt with injuries and develop his maturity; why he loves playing on the clay; and much more. On the second part of the podcast, former player Tim Mayotte talks about why he wanted to run for the ATP Board of Directors position vacated by Justin Gimelstob; some of the issues he sees; and how he would've responded to some of the challenges facing men's tennis, had he been chosen for the position; and more.
