Plot: Tashi, a tennis player-turned-coach, has taken her husband, Art, and transformed him from a mediocre player into a world-famous Grand Slam champion. To jolt him out of his recent losing streak, she makes him play a “Challenger” event — close to the lowest level of tournament on the pro tour — where he finds himself standing across the net from the once-promising, now burnt-out Patrick: his former best friend and Tashi’s former boyfriend.
 
Is this based on a true story? The tennis aspect just seems a bit random and boring imo. Surprised to see Zendaya in something like this tbh.
 
I thought this was overrated, I enjoyed it to a degree but I had it in my head it was going to be much darker. I dunno, worth a watch I suppose
 
One sentence reviews


"A Submissive borderline personality, a Narcissist and a Sociopath, play some sensual tennis to Synth Pop."
