For more than forty years, Argentinean sportsman Guillermo Vilas, a tennis legend, has tirelessly demanded that the official rankings (1973-78) be revised in order to finally be recognized as the best player in the world. Eduardo Puppo, an Argentinian sports journalist, and Romanian mathematician Marian Ciulpan are making Vilas' demand theirs owns, fought for more than ten years against a powerful sports corporation to prove that Vilas was indeed No. 1 in the old ATP ranking system for seven weeks between 1975 and 1976, and unfairly displaced from the top of world tennis.

This is an interesting although a bit ackward movie. Although the whole premise and most of the movie focuses on the fact that the ATP miscalculated rankings back in the 70s and that Vilas should have been #1 for 5 weeks or so we don't have any way to make up our minds as the maths are apparently very complex. However the original game footage with the likes of Connors, Anastasem Borg etc is very interesting. The movie does not address Vilas's alzheimer which is visible although not mentionned sepcifically. The contrast of trying to rewrite history while Vilas struggles with Alzheimer would have have added a human touch. The last 20 minutes of the movie are more emotional while the rest of the movie is more technical.
