The Best Tennis Movie Made in 2012

In the category of fictional stories based around tennis, this short film stands alone. Literally. Nobody makes movies about tennis.

Balls Out

Of course it goes without saying, but I will say it anyway, that this oeuvre shares part of its title with the greatest tennis movie ever made...Balls Out: Gary the Tennis Coach.  What looks like ridiculous nonsense is actually a remarkably realistic portrayal of the life of junior coaches and the juniors coached by those coaches.

Yes, we all wore those short shorts in the 80s. McEnroe told us to.
