That’s Troy and me flanking Erwin today at Roland Garros. You can tell all three of us are in deep thought of what we’re going to say on the podcast. Good thing Troy and I slipped into the women’s bathroom to covertly record while Erwin was forced to watch mixed doubles. (Getty picture via Yahoo! Sports)

Troy and I are returning to the TSF audio board this week for our third podcast. We’re re-capping what’s happened the last few weeks on tour, as well as looking ahead to what the clay season will/can bring. As usual, we’ll make sure to include some TSF-inspired talk, like just when exactly Alexandra Stevenson should retire officially and much, much more.
But wait! We want to hear from you! In the comment section, include a question or prompt you’d like for us to touch on. You’ve got all day today (Monday) to do so, so get to it, kiddies! We’ll make sure to touch on a couple of things you wise souls bring up.
Catch up on our two first podcasts after the cut.
Erwin and I sat down Monday night in the depths of Madison Square Garden to talk about the night that had just happened, why/how tennis has gotten so popular recently, Melanie Oudin, WTA has-beens (there’s lots!) and what’s to come over the next few weeks. Enjoy!

If you want to mix up your ingestion of tennis media, consider the podcasts coming out of the ASB Classic. Kevin Sinnott and James McOnie — the ASB Wildcards — chat with the women participating in the tourney about everything under the sun.
They interviewed Camille Pin on Day 1, and we find out about her love of scuba diving. (SEWTA did a photo shoot with her during last year’s Sony Ericsson Open in Miami, above.)
And on Day 2 they talked to a very engaging Tamira Paszek about New Zealand’s coffee, Austrian cuisine (apparently, Kässpätzle is delicious), and her rusty hairclips.
Stella Artois Championships launched the “first official tennis podcast.” It’s hosted by BBC commentator David Law and will include a weekly feature called “Commissioner McEnroe” hosted by John McEnroe

A few months ago, Andy Roddick hit what he called one of the best shots of his career. It was a diving save, one in which Roddick smacked a forehand down the line on match point to win a third set tie-breaker against up-and-comer Milos Raonic and capture the Memphis title. And while the web went abuzz with the video of the shot, many viewers weren’t actually watching Roddick’s shot. Instead, they were paying attention to a cap-less Andy, his hat having fallen off in his exertion of effort. And what was there to see? Not much, actually. An almost-bald Andy.Hair loss and tennis go hand and hand. Male pros often play into their mid or late 30s, meaning as they start to lose their hair, it’s left for all the public to see. Andre Agassi freaked out about it so much that he donned a fake hairpiece that had the world fooled. Pete Sampras has been so nonchalant about his after-career hair thinning that he doesn’t even seem to notice.
But we notice — we always notice. TSF has collected the hairdos (and don’ts) from around the tour in what we’re calling “The All-England Club for Men’s Hair Loss,” where styles differ from member to member, but everyone has one thing in common: they’re going — or already are — bald.
Words of strength. The WTA lined up its stars in Japan to voice their support for a country that has struggled since the massive earthquake this spring caused severe tsunami damage and the radiation and flooding disasters. Classy move, gals.

City spottings: A couple of months ago I noticed this gem of a signed Ilie Nastase poster in David Thorpe‘s office, he of podcast fame. I’ll have him tell the back story next time we’re on air (soon!). More: TSF podcasts
Below, a little gift from the folks at Chance, who put up a pop-up shop on Elizabeth Street in Noho. The shop is up for the month of June, and thanks to this little morsel — a peppermint taffy was inside — I got the chance to enjoy my Sunday that much more. But as StyleBeat blog notes, Chance has much more than taffy to offer: former Kate Spade creative director Julia Leach is behind the scenes at Chance, and Marisa Marcantonio notes the collection is designed with “a yen for all things French and penchant for travel.” We can dig it.
