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.
Ian Somerhalder was considered for the role of Jake Hammond but was rejected by the director.
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...
The grass in center court during the final match is too green and lush. In reality, after two weeks of intense play the court should have few green spots and more sandy areas, like a sandbox (the grass is not treated during the championship).
