"It's beautiful when you close one door how many new ones open up," the former No. 5 says.

Recently retired former world No. 5 Daniela Hantuchova joins the podcast while in New York for the US Open. She's transitioned quickly from her retirement last summer to a broadcast and reporting career. The 34-year-old's newest project is Downtown Dani, a series with Tennis Channel where she talks fashion, food and off-court trends with the tour's biggest stars. The two-time US Open quarterfinalist also shares her experiences from her career including her love for Indian Wells (where she won twice), winning the Fed Cup title for Slovakia in 2002, her best US Open match and winning a career mixed doubles Grand Slam.
