A pro tennis player has lost his ambition and has fallen in rank to 119. Fortunately for him, he meets a young player on the women's circuit who helps him recapture his focus for Wimbledon.
Kirsten Dunst underwent serious physical training to prepare for this role.
We all start off in life with a dream, don't we? For a tennis player, it's being in the final of a Grand Slam, Centre Court, a high lob... a smash. Game, set and match. You're a champion. You're number one. But for most tennis players, that's all it...
When Peter is headed into his first game of Wimbledon, he says," So this is it. This is the end. This is what it looks like. 1000 balls a day, 300 days a year, for 25 years. 6,000,000 balls. And it all ends here. At 2 in the afternoon, on Court 17, while they're on center court, rooting for the latest Russian teenage beauty." 1000 balls/day x 300 days/year x 25 years is 7,500,000 balls, not six million.
