Superb performance by Glynnis O'Connor as one of tennis's greats.
8 July 2001 | by See all my reviews

Every year when Wimbledon is on, I wonder why this movie is not shown on TV. Maureen Connolly was the first woman to win all grand slam titles in one calendar year yet there is no book about her. Connolly's life is the stuff of drama and O'Connor gives us a real feel for how working your way up the ranks of tennis worked then. Disfunctional families now seem almost mandatory for a top-seeded player, but during Connolly's time, the public didn't know such things. Though the Wimbledon segments were not shot there, the film reproduces the landmarks and signage faithfully. I know, I went to Wimbledon in 1993 and saw her name on the sign by Centre Court.

I can only assume the film is basically factual as I've never found any book with enough information about this fascinating woman to know. All I know is that the film works very well and O'Connor is radiant. I really love this movie!
