The International Tennis Hall of Fame recently launched the TennisWorthy Podcast, a new series of podcasts featuring conversations with Hall of Famers and tennis legends. Among the icons featuring in the first season will be Lleyton Hewitt, Tracy Austin, Ivan Lendl and Mary Pierce.
“The individuals featured in the TennisWorthy Podcast have set themselves apart by achieving the ultimate honour in tennis - induction into the International Tennis Hall of Fame,” said Julianna Barbieri, Senior Vice President of Content & Partnerships at the ITHF. “These thoughtful episodes reveal what it takes to reach the top of the game, both on and off the court. Whether it be in competition, in your career or in daily life, listeners and tennis fans alike will discover the qualities that translate to success.”
The conversations featured in the podcast will examine the mindset of champions through the experiences of some of the best players in tennis history. The TennisWorthy Podcast is hosted by Chris Bowers.
The first four episodes will be released as follows:
• Episode 1 (Jan. 25) – Australian great Lleyton Hewitt discusses the drive, intensity and “never say die” attitude that he credits for his achievements.

• Episode 3 (Feb. 22) – Ivan Lendl opens up about how absorbing experiences on and off the court led to mastering the intricacies that defined his consistency.
• Episode 4 (March 8) – Mary Pierce shares her story, from how fate led her to pick up a racquet for the first time at age 10, to her desire to be the best she can possibly be every day.
