A strange thing has been happening in the world. No, not coronavirus. People are agreeing with Nick Kyrgios.
It was unthinkable a year ago. Kyrgios is a divisive tennis star, putting his emotions out there for all to see when he's on the court and speaking his mind off it.
In lockdown he's spoken out about plans to play the US Open in August and Novak Djokovic's tournament, which led to several positive coronavirus tests. So is he really the voice of reason through all of this?
We discuss Kyrgios' position and dissect Australia's World Cup bid, despite Canberra in danger of becoming the forgotten city if the third most-watched tournament in the world comes to the country.
FIFA will decide this week which bid will host the 2023 women's World Cup, with Australia and New Zealand submitting a joint proposal for the tournament.
The ACT government, however, opted to withdraw from the process after deeming the cost of hosting games was too high. Time will tell if it was the right decision, and there is still a chance the government could be lured back in when finer details are submitted.
We also discuss the latest in Canberra sport, hear from Josh Hodgson and Josh Papalii about the Canberra Raiders' woes and Darcy Swain about the Super Rugby restart.
The Raiders are keen to get their season back on track after a yoyo month of NRL, with Hodgson and Papalii admitting the players need to stand up following a disappointing loss to Manly.
Swain is in contention to become a Wallabies bolter this year after a lock stock turnover, with the Brumbies suffering another second-row injury on the eve of the season.
