Peter Colt, an English tennis player in his thirties whose ranking slipped from 11th to 119th in the world, considers he never really had to fight for anything as his wealthy but all but close family easily put him through studies and allowed him to pursue his tennis ambitions, bravely exchanges jokes with his German sparring partner Dieter Prohl, in a similar position, but feels it's about time to admit he's getting too old to compete with fitter coming men (or boys) and intends, after a last Wimbledon, to take a job with the prestigious tennis club instead. Just then, by accident, he bumps into Lizzie Bradbury, the American rising star of female tennis, falls in love with her and finds her interest in him changes his entire perception, even gives him the strength to win again. But where will it lead them, especially when her overprotective father-manager Dennis Bradbury proves determined to nip their relationship in the bud, believing it detrimental to her career?

Scenes were filmed on Brighton beach between 1 September 2003 and 6 September 2003 and involved 250 extras hired from the local public. See more »


On the day of the final, we hear the BBC Radio 1 Breakfast Show DJ Chris Moyles announcing the match, however Moyles's show was Monday to Friday and the men's final is on Sunday. Similarly, the men's and women's semifinals are shown being played on adjacent outside courts, whereas in reality they would be played (a) on show courts and (b) on different days (normally Friday and Thursday respectively) unless there were sustained rain delays, which does not seem to have been the case.

Peter Colt: [voiceover] 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 ever is: a dream. The reality is another story. My story. Now, you see that good-looking fella?

Entertaining Sports Romance Comedy
31 October 2004 | by (utah) – See all my reviews

This fun, sporting romance of a movie would been better received by the larger movie-going audience if the sport's emphasis had been on America

  • but nevertheless, for any anti-Brit - that just too bad. I enjoyed

the movie and even as a former high school tennis player, I even found the tennis scenes believable and exciting - this movie had a good balance between its romance and sport (something most sport-romance films often fail to be able to do). While the romance and action were typical, the basic flavor of movies nowadays have advanced a bit, including Wimbledon. It's not fun and games. There are even losses. But getting in the tennis player's mind, namely Paul Bettany, was a nice touch along with the decent tennis action. A must see for female tennis players who like a bit of romance along with anyone who likes tennis and behind the scenes comedy and entertainment.

An excellent date movie, with a sport-bent. Seven out of Ten Stars.
