A wild and unpredictable US Open just wrapped leaving many in disbelief over how the women's final ended between Serena Williams and Naomi Osaka. Your hosts Nina Pantic and Irina Falconi give their take on the controversy involving Serena and chair umpire Carlos Ramos.

In any case, Serena is back inside the Top 20, while the men's champion, Novak Djokovic has solidified his return to the Top 3. Comebacks complete, to say the least. One more US Open champion has completed her own comeback: Bethanie Mattek-Sands. She won the mixed doubles crown with Jamie Murray for her eighth major and her first since her horrific knee injury at Wimbledon last year.

Nina caught up with Bethanie in New York just before she won the US Open final in an 11-9 deciding tiebreak. The 33-year-old talks about her philosophies on dealing with injuries, how she stays positive, her relationship with Wimbledon, how long she sees herself playing and more.
