“The launch of Break Point marks a major moment for tennis. Our sport is filled with passion, excitement and suspense, and Netflix and Box to Box are masters at bringing those stories to life. This series will shed a new light on our incredible athletes, their journeys, and the vibrancy of the game at spectacular tournaments across the globe. It’s a golden opportunity to bring in new audiences and let the next generation of fans fall in love with tennis.”Andrea Gaudenzi, ATP Chairman
