Break Point is a documentary series created by Paul Martin and James Gay-Rees in which we can delve into the professional tennis world led by its most promising players.
Break Point is a great documentary bringing us closer to the world of professional tennis in the closest way possible and entering the locker rooms and, as much as possible, penetrating the psychology, life and frenetic life of a professional tennis player..
The documentary will tell us about the lives and ambitions of a series of players who want to break through the dominance of the greatest players those who are stars and manage to reach the Break Point namesake of the series.
An original proposal by Netflix, which brings quality to sports documentaries in the photography and production. Break Point is a good series of this type which manages to become an extremely high quality documentary series that manages to achieve its goal: make the viewer vibrate and enter the competitive world of tennis, through the new promising stars who are ready to break away from the brutal tyranny of players such as Federer, Williams, Nadal or Djokovic.
In four great tournaments (Australian Open, Indian Wells, Madrid Open and unsurpassable Roland Garros), five promising players will battle to achieve the precious prize.
If you enjoy tennis, you can´t miss this series and if you aren´t a tennis fan, the documentary goes beyond tennis and offers us a chance to get close to the world of athletes and go with them, and almost as if it were a reality series, follow them in these five chapters as they seek the (almost) impossible dream of achieving that Break Point.
