Love this interview of the iconic Ons. She is not only good for tennis, she great for the human race. I love the quote “my resolution is not to judge anyone, if I can achieve that, I won’t judge myself.”

Caro’s feedback is wonderful to show mutual respect for two great champions.

A brilliant player, an inspiration and I want her to look after her…go have children. Go get life.


I only found out about your podcasts when I watched Caro’s post match interview after defeating Naomi Osaka (congratulations!) Today I listened to both podcasts and I am so glad I found them. Great questions and interview style – Borja really lets the interviewees speak for themselves and some true pearls of wisdom emerge. I have been a follower of Dasha and Natasha’s vlog for some time now and your podcast complements that beautifully – bringing yet another perspective to the life of a professional tennis player. Looking forward to the next one (and I will definitely be sharing this),
