Mailbag: Halep Goes Coach-Less, the Gimelstob Arrest and More

Hello everyone,

Time for a jetlagged mailbag. But first…

• The most recent SI/Tennis Channel podcast features Mary Carillo. She was terrific. Of course she was.

• Next up: Current world No. 1 doubles player Mike Bryan, who at 40 is the oldest man to top the world rankings.

• We praised Naomi Osaka last week. Next week we’ll come with our MVP Award (spoiler: it’s Djokovic) and players/themes to watch in 2019.

• Because we stop at nothing to promote Torben Ulrich, the coolest man on the planet, note that he was awarded the Dan Turèll Medal, named after a popular Danish writer who himself was inspired by…Ulrich.
