A fledgling pro tennis player recaptures his bygone passion for the game with the help of an up-and-coming female star.

ABSTRACT
English tennis pro Peter Colt is a fading star, dropping from eleventh to 119th in the world rankings with a plan to retire from the sport and become a coach after one last appearance at Wimbledon. A chance encounter with rising young women's tennis phenom Lizzie Bradbury looks to alter Peter's outlook on his career and life, however, as love blooms against the backdrop of the world's foremost tennis tournament despite Lizzie's father's plans to put an end to their budding relationship.
