Good episode!

I really enjoyed this podcast! Monika is the reason why I start following and watching tennis. One thing that bothered me was your emphasis that she is not Serb even though she was born in today’s Serbia. You would probably not make similar comment for someone born in US whose parents are not American. I wonder, why did you mentioned this several times in your podcast. Is there a reason for it? I think there is similar bias that journalists do with Novak Djokovic which contributes to his public image. Maybe you can consider doing research and doing similar podcast.

Too much WTA

Ok podcast but too much WTA talk. Most tennis fans don’t care about womens tennis.

Great podcast!

This is a wonderful, highly informative, and humorous podcast on the topic of tennis. I'm glad these two hosts are not afraid to be transparent about their favorite players and other personal views. Where else do you hear such honesty about how a lot of people really feel about Isner? Thank god. They regulary highlight gender-related inequities within the sport as well. This is truly valuable to me. I excitedly look forward to a new episode every couple of weeks or so.

A podcast I always look forward too

TBS is probably the best time I have listening to a podcast. I look like a fool when I’m listening to it in public by the amount of times James and Jonathan crack me up. They provide a great mix of humor, well-researched information, and measured+unique perspectives. Come for the tennis, stay for the messiness

A tennis podcast unlike any other

My boyfriend introduced me to the Body Serve earlier this year and it may be the most important thing he has contributed to our relationship. No one in any sports media that I've read, listened to, or watched discusses sports quite like Jonathan and James. They handle every topic with the appropriate perspective, deftness, and nuance that it deserves. They always touch upon race, gender, and sexuality (something you'll rarely see brought up anywhere else.) I truly wish there was this type of podcast for every sport that I follow. Most importantly, they make me laugh. And that's usually all I'm looking for on my drive to or from work. I highly recommend The Body Serve to any and all tennis fans!

Breath of fresh air

This review is long overdue. James and Jonathan have found the magic formula to transform the famously stuffy commentary associated with tennis coverage into something I eagerly anticipate with each episode release. By framing their insightful sporting analysis with an unapologetically conscientious tone (and yes, adding a tasteful dose of pettiness where warranted), they breathe new life into a sport that has given this introverted gay man of color such joy over the years. Bravo and keep up the fantastic work!

Knowledgeable, eloquent, and enjoyable takes on tennis

By far the best tennis podcast for those looking for more than a rundown of results. The hosts are so well spoken and well researched when discussing complex issues. Listening to this podcast has made me a better person. I’ve learned how to better respond to bigotry and the typical takes people use to demean women, POC, and LGBTQ+ people. One stand out moment was when the hosts explained the nuance of how commentators/media use particular verbiage to describe how white and black people have developed in the sport. It forced me to confront my own biases and unconscious language I use that I’ve now realized has been ingrained into my thinking. Every episode I find myself laughing along with the hosts as if we’ve been longtime friends. Can’t recommend this enough, even for those who aren’t particularly interested in tennis.

Fun and quirky take on tennis

If you like your tennis with a dose of irreverence, check out this podcast. Though the hosts are very well-informed, this podcast does not have a “tennis journo” vibe. Though many of their pop culture references are foreign they me (hate reality TV), the banter is still funny. Especially love the way they call out the male-focused tennis bull#@*&. Great to have some diverse voices talking about the sport.

Highly recommended for any tennis fan

One of my favorite tennis podcasts to listen to. Filled with good analysis of tennis results and tons of LOL moments. Even more importantly, the hosts give a lot of time to off-court happenings and never fail to call out all the phobias this old-world sport is still mired in. Yes, they have their favorite tennis players but that bias is acknowledged and even those players are taken to task when necessary. The Pride Month episode from 2018 is bookmark-worthy and goes to show why we need more diverse voices in sports. The episode itself is super well-researched and taught me many things I never knew. But apart from that, how many other sports podcast do a pride month episode OR bring up LGBTQ topics in public forums like these guys did in a press conference? Keep up the good work.
