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 trough 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?

Peter's semifinal match is played on a small outer court, rather than on Centre Court. Even if Centre Court was unavailable, the match would be played on Court 1 rather than an outer court. See more »

No, no that kid in white, the other tired good-looking fella. Yeah, him. Well, that's me. British Davis Cup, long time ago. Two ...

There aren't many Tennis movies so when one does come out, Tennis fans
are quick to see it and quick to judge it. As well as being a movie
about Britain's famous Wimbledon Tennis Tournament it is a romantic
comedy. I think a lot of people who see the movie and are disappointed
with the so called lack of Tennis scenes are forgetting the movie is
also about the romance between the two tennis players (Paul Bettany and
Kirsten Dunst.) I loved the movie, I thought it was quirky, romantic
and fun. There are heaps of real-life tennis couples and this movie is
a great example of how two people from different places and upbringings
can change each other's lives. If you like romantic comedyies or sports
movies than I definitely recommend this movie.
