If you like sports documentaries and are a fan of Drive to Survive, get ready: the Netflix announced the production of a sports documentary that will follow the 2022 tennis season (the sport, not the footwear).Raquette to Survive” will be produced by Box to Box Films, the same producer of Drive to Survive. The recordings started with a great controversy in the Australia Open (TO THE).

Tennis universe can gain new fans

THE Netflix said on its website that the documentary will go behind the scenes of the four grand slams tennis for both men and women. Those grand slams they are: Australia Open, Roland Garros, Wimbledon and US Open. For those unfamiliar with the sport, these four events are the highlights of the tennis season. THE Netflix partnered with the ATP Tour (men’s tennis), WTA Tour (feminine), ATP Average and with the organizations of grand slams to perform the filming.

In order to follow the same formula as the Drive to Survive, which brought many new fans to the formula 1, the new sports documentary by Netflix can bring new fans to tennis all over the world. Here in Brazil the sport was already more popular, mainly in Gugamania, period in which Guga Kuerten, three-time champion of Roland Garros, was competing. In addition, Brazil also had Maria Esther Bueno, considered one of the best tennis players in history by the specialized media.

Recordings have already started at the controversial Australia Open 2022

If the most purist fans of Formula 1 thought that the Drive to Survive forced controversy, Netflix you won’t even need to fiddle much for it in the first grand slam of the year. THE Australia Open will start next Monday, the 17th, while its qualifying stage started on the 9th. However, Novak Djokovic, number 1 in the ranking of ATP, may not participate in the competition for not having been vaccinated, which is a requirement for visa entry in Australia. Detained a second time this Saturday for a new immigration control hearing, with two days to go before the start of the TO THE, the team of Box to Box Films must already be accumulating hours of footage and interviews about the case. Djokovic search for the record of titles in grand slams. If he doesn’t participate, Rafael Nadal, also 20 grand slams, could be the first to reach 21 titles from these tournaments. I’m already looking forward to the documentary!

After Australia, the Netflix will make the next recordings in Roland Garros (May 16 – June 5), Wimbledon (June 27 – July 10) and ends the season on US Open (August 29 – September 11). In addition to the controversy of Djokovic, the season may record the return and possible retirement of Roger Federer and the return of Serena Williams, considered the best tennis players in history by some.
