Episode 909: Transcendental Federer, All The Young Dubs, Tyrone Power
Winning comes easy to some people – and this weekend Roger Federer, and the footballers of Dublin and Tyrone, all burnished their credentials with crushing victories.
Oisin McConville and Mike Quirke reflect on the Dubs’ 7th consecutive Leinster championship win, as each new game brings another scoring master-class from a different member of their forward unit.

They are somewhat less impressed by Tyrone who they feel still have a bit to go to challenge the reigning All-Ireland champions, but they had plenty in hand to take care of Down in yesterday’s Ulster final.
Post-prime Roger Federer might end up being one of the best players of all time, even if we leave aside his achievements in his ACTUAL prime – Louisa Thomas of the New Yorker joins us to talk about his 8th Wimbledon title, and Venus falling short at the last hurdle.
