Hearts were won on Centre Court on day 3, but for once, not by seven-time champion Roger Federer.

His opponent Marcus Willis, ranked 772 in the world, only won seven games, but the combination of his wide-eyed, cheeky-chappie, smiley reaction to getting his Centre Court opportunity was a breath of fresh of air. 

Catherine Whitaker and David Law are joined by the Telegraph's Charlie Eccleshare and BBC 5 Live's Philip Studd to discuss it all.

Plus, how did Novak Djokovic look? What about the other Brits - Konta, Evans and Watson? And find out what happened when David bumped into umpires Mohamed lahyani and Carlos Barnardes.

Rain intervened on Day 2 at Wimbledon, but not before Serena Williams and Andy Murray began their latest quests for the respective titles. 

To discuss their progress, the Stan Wawrinka vs. Taylor Fritz match, and to preview the latest instalment of the Marcus Willis fairytale, Catherine Whitaker and David Law are joined by Simon Briggs of the Telegraph and Jonathan Overend from BBC TV.

Marcus Willis - British No.23, World No.772 and winner of $64 so far in 2016, faces one of the greatest tennis players ever to pick up a racquet - Roger Federer - in the second round of Wimbledon, and The Tennis Podcast team couldn’t wait to talk about it.

Gigi Salmon tells us what it was like to be in amongst the Court 17 crowd, describing the Willis victory scenes for BBC Radio 5 Live.

Annabel Croft drops by to share the stories she’s heard about Willis, and to reveal that Garbine Muguruza is a heck of a cook.

And presenters David Law and Catherine Whitaker review the rest of eventful opening day in which James Ward performed creditably against Novak Djokovic, Dan Evans won well, and Federer found a way past Guido Pella, eventually.

The team also preview day 2 at Wimbledon, when Andy Murray will face Liam Broady, Serena Williams makes her bow, and an ‘aggro-fest’ is expected between Nick Kyrgios and Radek Stepanek. 

The Tennis Podcast is produced in association with The Telegraph, and will post shows every night during Wimbledon.

Wimbledon is here, the draws are out and The Tennis Podcast team is here to preview the fortnight.

Catherine Whitaker and David Law are joined by Simon Briggs, the Telegraph’s Tennis Correspondent, and all three concur on who they see winning the Wimbledon title on the men’s side, with a few disagreements along the way. On the women’s side, no-one seems to agree on anything. 

There’s the fairytale run of Marcus Willis, ranked No.775, who has won through 6 matches to make the main draw, and 15 British players in total. The team agree that things are moving in the right direction.

Following the semi final victories of Andy Murray and Milos Raonic, Telegraph Tennis Correspondent Simon Briggs joins Catherine Whitaker and Gigi Salmon to look ahead to the pair's first ever grass court meeting in the final of the 2016 Aegon Championships. 

Not only will we see Murray bidding for a record breaking fifth Queen's title and Raonic bidding for a precious first, but we'll also see Ivan Lendl vs John McEnroe in the coach's box for the very first time.

It was one of the most special days in the history of the Aegon Championships on Friday, with four of the tournament's eight four-time champions present to receive replica trophies in front of a packed Centre Court crowd.

Roy Emerson, John McEnroe, Boris Becker and Lleyton Hewitt all talked to The Tennis Podcast about their memories, and McEnroe gives his early impressions about coaching, which he appears to have taken to well.

There's also a preview of the semifinals, which pit Andy Murray against Marin Cilic, and Milos Raonic vs. Bernard Tomic.

As the Aegon Championships at The Queen’s Club prepares for its first all-British quarterfinal in the Open era, The Tennis Podcast welcomes Davis Cup captain Leon Smith onto the show. 

Does Kyle Edmund stand a chance against Andy Murray? They faced off in a first-to-ten-point tie-break at an event called Tie Break Tens at the Royal Albert Hall in December. Edmund won it 10-7, and Smith feels he has a puncher’s chance.

Presenters Catherine Whitaker and Gigi Salmon also speak to Bernard Tomic, Kevin Anderson’s wife, Kelsey, and Nick Matthew - the only British man to win a Squash world title.

What will John McEnroe be like as a coach? We ask Peter Fleming. 

The tall, blonde-haired American won four Wimbledon doubles titles alongside McEnroe over a five-year period between 1979 and 1984, and knows him better than just about anyone. Fleming is a special guest on the Tennis Podcast from the Aegon Championships.

We also hear from Jamie Murray - World No.1 doubles players - and former Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson, who reveals why he loves tennis so much.

Ivan Lendl arrived to resume his coaching role with Andy Murray  after a two year absence, and the British Number One edged his way past Nicolas Mahut. 

On the Tennis Podcast, recorded at the Aegon Championships, Catherine Whitaker and Gigi Salmon convened to exchange stories from the side of the practice court where Murray and Lendl got the old band back together.

Special guest Goran Ivanisevic joined the show to explain how to cope during rain delays - after all, this is the man that won a three-day Wimbledon semifinal against Tim Henman.

We also hear from the Chelsea goalkeeper Asmir Begovic, who was supporting his good friend, Stan Wawrinka.
