"The more time that goes by, and the more that we’re out of our routine, the harder that it is."
Taylor Townsend joins the show this week with co-hosts Nina Pantic and Irina Falconi. The world No. 73 calls in from her home in Atlanta, where she's trying to stay active during quarantine season with hikes, puzzles, musical instruments and online workouts.
Townsend talks about how she's had to adjust her 2020 mindset given the shutdown of the tour. She reflects on her 2019 US Open breakthrough (where she reached the fourth round complete with a third-set tiebreak upset of Simona Halep), and opens up about her relationship with Billie Jean King thanks to World TeamTennis.
She also gives her take on how the coronavirus could change the world—far beyond tennis—forever. On a lighter note, the American shares a funny story on how she discovered she's left-handed, explains why she's so inspired by Martina Navratilova, and reveals a new TikTok challenge.
