Todd Woodbridge, one-half of the famous Woodies duo, has made his first public comments since his former partner Mark Woodforde revealed that the pair had not spoken for a while. In an appearance on the 'Break Point' podcast, a few weeks ago, Woodforde spoke about how he wished that he and his former partner were in a better place.
"It's probably one of the greatest quandaries right now. I wish Todd and I were in a better place, we haven't spoken in some time," “He developed a partnership with Jonas and they had success together, but not anywhere near on the same level as the Woodies.
It's disappointing for me, I still play the legends events so it's kind of a head-scratcher to turn up and we're not playing together." “I guess the Woodies drifted into the background for him and he’s developing his own brand.
“There’s bits and pieces there which I’m sure we both share in, but I hope some day that we can be on better terms than where we are now”.
Todd Woodbridge comments on the possibility of a Woodies reunion
Speaking to Channel 9, Woodbridge, who is now one of the leading commentators in tennis, made his first comments on the possibility of a Woodies reunion.
"It's improbable that we could ever be separated by everything that we've done together on the court. The Woodies is a household name in Australia. If the Australian public, and Mark in particular, wants to see us back together, we've got to make it happen."
The Woodies are among the most successful doubles teams in men's tennis history. They were named the ATP Doubles Team of the Year on five occasions and won 61 ATP doubles titles together during their career. They won 11 Grand Slam doubles titles including one French Open, two Australian Opens, two US Opens, and six Wimbledons.
They also won a gold medal at the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games, a silver medal at the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games, and were part of Australia's Davis Cup title in 1999. Todd Woodbridge is now one of the leading commentators for the sport on television and was signed by the Nine Network as a commentator in 2018, after several years with Seven Sport.
