Beyond the Baseline with Jon Wertheim: Mary Carillo on 2018 Australian Open, Margaret Court Interview

On this week's episode, host Jon Wertheim talks with Mary Carillo about her upcoming REAL SPORTS interview with Margaret Court and the 2018 Australian Open. Carillo details her four-day visit and interview with Court, including her ministry and the fact that—despite her Hall of Fame career, record Grand Slam singles titles, and namesake arena in Melbourne, the third largest at the Australian Open—there are people who believe her name should be stripped from the arena because of her views as a Pentecostal minister, particularly about gay marriage. Also on the podcast, Wertheim and Carillo discuss notable players to watch in Melbourne, top storylines heading into the season, favorites for the men's and women's title and more. On the Beyond the Baseline Podcast, Sports Illustrated executive editor, Tennis Channel commentator and host Jon Wertheim takes fans between the lines with tennis commentary and exclusive interviews with the top players and newsmakers on the ATP and WTA tours.
