Has much more to do with politics and personality than it does with hitting a ball over a net.

Anyone watching Wimbledon will only have their enjoyment of the game enhanced by this vibrant history lesson. Game, set and match.

A lot of the material is reused, and the timeline of events overlaps with itself on a number of occasions, which smacks of a dearth of material for a film which barely runs to 80 minutes.
