Addicted to Sets Gives Back during Covid-19: Interview with tennis teaching pro Marcus Reese

Covid-19 has impacted all of us in so many ways. One industry that has been hit hard, but we haven't seen in the news much is tennis.

In this episode, I interview the fabulous teaching pro Marcus Reese. If you'd like to support Marcus during this time, his Venmo account is @Marcus-Reese-5.

Cliff began by talking about how his broadcasting career started during a Davis Cup match between USA and South Africa. Tony Trabert could not be the commentator for this match as he had been the captain of the USA Davis Cup team.

This was forty years ago, and Cliff could have never imagined it would be the start of a pivot in his career. He went on to cover the US Open for CBS (“they thought it was awful!”). He was subsequently picked up by ESPN and WCT (“in those days, there was no cable”). Drysdale was on the job just one week aft...
