    Good flick.
    I was not sure what to expect, I like to play tennis, but never got into watching it as a spectator.
    But this is not a tennis movie. It has tennis in it. quite a bit, but it is a story about two people.
    Two people that the world thought were complete opposites. But in reality, they were very much alike in almost every way.
    You don't have to know anything about tennis to watch this movie. You just need to be interested in a story about two interesting people.
    And the movie tells it pretty well.
    It's not flashy, it's not dramatic....it's a story.

    IMO that was tennis at it's best in the 70s. Borg, Connors, McEnroe, Nastase were such interesting personalities and great players.
