"Phenom"? I think not.
9 October 2000 | by (WA) – See all my reviews

The only good thing about this show was Judith Light. And all I remember from the series is this cute, innocent tennis player torn between a normal life and her coach's never-ending push for "professionalism".

Angela was an unusually beautiful teenager living with her mom Dianne and younger sister Mary. She was a phenom at tennis (hence the name) and her coach always pushed her to perfection. The only episode I remember pertained to Angela learning how to kiss. She was developing a healthy relationship and her coach tried to stand in the way.

The who show was a string of cliches, and I am not surprised it was cancelled. It had potential but fell flat.
