Guerrica allowed that, as with any podcast, FANtastic Tennis doesn't come without its quirks in recording. "CoCo’s dog was barking throughout, and we had to stop numerous times and re-shoot or edit," he said.
Vandeweghe, a WTA Quarantrivia veteran (also alongside Guerrica), hit it off so well with her super-fan that she actually took Sloan’s spin-workout class after the interview. She and Guerrica have exchanged gin cocktail recipes to boot, though as Vandeweghe herself shared in a quick-strike set of questions mid-episode, she does tend to favor a margarita.
"So the experiment has worked," Guerrica affirmed, speaking to Zooming and podcasting, not to bartending.
FANtastic Tennis' upcoming episodes will feature 2020 headline-makers Jessica Pegula and Danielle Collins alongside eager observers of the sport and their respective careers. Future interviews are on tap with southpaw shotmaker Donald Young and beloved retired pro Corina Morariu as well. Other early episodes featured retired, story-laden WTA players Manuela Maleeva and Jelena Dokic. Additional guest stars are, as we like to say come Wimble-time, in queue.
